The Seven Deadly Sins + 1
It’s often thought that the Seven Deadly Sins were about the loss of an individual soul and it’s true. But it’s also about the collective loss of a nation’s spirit, the sad journey to its destruction.
Recently I have come to believe that there should be an Eighth Deadly Sin…….
The belief that we’re so close to God that He is on our side, that all our ways our His ways, that we deserve all earthly and spiritual blessings while others warrant punishment, that we deserve His mercy while others earn retribution, and that we deserve Heaven while others merit Hell.
