The Deadly Sins

Whenever we see restless hearts, human discontent, bias, disrespect, marginalization, oppression, and every form of injustice and hatred, there we may also see the seeds of the 7 Deadly Sins.

These vices are the interior attitudes that form the heart of darkness and the antithesis of generosity, compassion, and self-sacrificial love. Where did these sins come from?

Spitzer covers this and more as he addresses five of the sins: gluttony, greed, lust, sloth, and vanity.
