Sin

Got your attention, ha!

So, sin; what is it?  An advertising term, as in “Sinfully delicious decedent double death by chocolate”?

An old word for an old concept, for sure.

The subject came up the other day of the Seven Deadly Sins.  There were 10 of us at the table and no one could name them.  Here is one arrangement (from Wikipedia):

  1. luxuria (lechery/lust)
  2. gula (gluttony)
  3. avaritia (avarice/greed)
  4. acedia (acedia/discouragement/sloth)
  5. ira (wrath)
  6. invidia (envy)
  7. superbia (pride)

Wow! The list looks like the formula for success that TV and the Magazines have been selling to young people since the 80’s.

People figured this out a long time ago

I still think they’re bad.
