Seven deadly sins!

I was reading somethings online and seen that they have 7 new deadly sins of the 21st centry. Do you think that they are basically the same as the old ones? and if you could pick what they were what would they be?

  • According to the Bible, ALL sins are deadly! " For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23

  • Ooo this could be fun.... "Thou shall not be a b*tch online just because people can't see who you are" gets my vote!

    ;)

    Honestly I don't see how different they could be.. Lust covers things like.. not cybering your neighbors wife and looking at online porn. Pretty sure the old ideas still apply.

  • Well let's see you're gonna die whether you sin or not so does it matter??? I think they are basically the same ones. Pick one to add IDK let me think on that one. Though maybe something about knocking on people's door to tell them they are going to hell if you don't follow their god. That might make the list.

  • The Seven Deadly Sins (cardinal sins) are lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The Catholic Church actually does not specify if the "seven deadly sins" are mortal sins (unforgivable) or venial (forgivable). They Church does specifically state that they are capital sins though and lists the seven as pride, avarice, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth or acedia HOWEVER they don't really state if it's a mortal or venial sin(s).
