The Seven Deadly Sins: Vices and Virtues

By: Karl Nelson, NYC Correspondent/Social Media Exec.

The Seven Deadly Sins are lust, pride, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, and envy.

In today’s society, it’s not abnormal to hear the average person question the rationale of sin.

In this country, moral striving appears to be at an all-time low. That being said, I was extremely encouraged by a conversation I had with Brooklyn-based Teaching Pastor Rasool Berry. Pastor Berry talked about the Seven Deadly Sins, but he did so in a way that will hopefully educate viewers on the vices (behavior with low morals) and virtues (behavior with high morals) that exist today and have always existed.

Pastor Berry views each of the Seven Deadly Sins (or vices) as categories for a slew of other sins. However, he feels that if a person is going to place a focus on the vice, then they must also give heed to the virtue of that particular vice. Checkout our interview. The way in which Pastor Berry breaks down this topic is beyond impressive. | KMN
