7

I've been reading Rumours of Another World, by Philip Yancey. He brings up the seven deadly sins. Can you even name them?
I had a hard time.

Here they are:
  1. pride
  2. envy
  3. anger
  4. greed
  5. sloth
  6. gluttony
  7. lust
A quote from Yancey

"Consider the seven deadly sins, a moral checklist that emerged from centuries of reflection. We live in a modern world so disordered from the original design that the entire notion of what is good for us has turned upside down." (p105)

How's that for something to think about?

Yo! I love Philip Yancey. I am actually reading his "The Bible Jesus Read". I have eight of his books, including Rumors.

I got here through Tara's blog, if you are wondering...
