I think most everything is covered no matter what I come up with it falls under one of these categories. Oh! I know it would be the BURNING OF BOOKS! There is no greater tool than learning and knowing how to read a book! Books are great they can help you learn new skills, or teach about history, or even help you step into a world of fantasy and magic. Books should be sacred no matter the content. Well, that’s it for me gotta go read my latest book! You know the one I just got published on barnesandnoble.com. Slim Pickings!

      • Actually, “wrath” is akin to “anger” and not “hate.” Hate is the most powerful example of detestation. If one were to refer to a Christian Bible (for example) one would find that God’s “wrath” is a result of his hate. Acting upon hate, then jealousy, the Hebrew/Jewish/Christian God becomes a wrathful, genocidal entity. It begins with hate. Or perhaps jealousy, and I’d have that one topping the list also. In looking over the list of those “deadly” sins, it seems evident that they were meant to demean the common people while avoiding listing the very real sins of the mighty and powerful. Maybe it’s time to make a new list, beginning with God’s own great sins, then the sins of the world’s historically renowned tyrants. The list could grow quite long.
