    And this is adding 7 additional deadly sins. The originals still stand.

    I think the idea is that they lead others to sin - they spread themselves.

    A sin that just hurts your soul's chances is not as bad as one that by its nature lures or pushes other people's souls into damnation with yours.

    It goes beyond hypocrisy. It leaves the bastards free to carry on "sinning"

    Of course, it's your choice to sin too.

    The list is inane and it seems that Buddy Christ is right around the corner.

    I think that this man has been misreported.
    All he is saying is that old sins have their new equivalents.
    He is not saying that the old terms should be disposed of,
    just that people don't know what modern activities fit into the bracket.
    It is advice for pastors. Only people who listen to pastors need worry.


    Some possible modern sins
    Downloading PC Porn = Lust
    Counterfeiting, Copying other peoples work =Theft
    Wars of revenge = Anger
    Use of drugs that damages your health/family = Drunkenness
    Dependence on Welfare for people who can work = Sloth
    Corpocracy without concern for people's welfare = Greed
    Energy Policies which result in Death for Millions = Murder

    If you are not religious, substitute Social Responsibilty for avoidance of Sin.
    Much the same thing.

    Aren't they the wealthiest religion?
    I've visited the vatican and no offence but you couldn't afford any of the stuff in there it's the envy of every black gansta and rich wide dude.

    Lost on fools if you ask me since some pope decided to cut off all the weeners of these precious art sculptures

    No religion is false or true.

    These new deadly sins are absurd. The original seven are elemental, a part of human nature:
    lust, gluttony, avarice, sloth, anger, envy and pride.
    Then we have the "new" ones:
    polluting, genetic engineering, being obscenely rich, drug dealing, abortion, pedophilia and causing social injustice.
    Polluting? Genetic engineering? Being rich? WTF? Why isn't jaywalking on the list? Can you imagine the position this puts some people in?
    "Father, forgive me, for I have sinned. I'm the obscenely rich CEO of a massively polluting genetic engineering firm. I thought I was OK, till these new sins came out. Now I'm screwed!'​
