The Virtue In The Vice: Finding Seven Lively Virtues In The Seven Deadly Sins
One of America's most thoughtful ministers adds a startling new twist to the Seven Deadly Sins.Our world is awash in false dichotomies: You're either for us or against us, good or evil, 'born again' or 'left behind.'
Virtue is virtue, and vice is vice, but is it really that simple? Are the rules of proper conduct that black and white?
With extraordinary clarity of thought and word, Dr. Robin Meyers argues that there are seven vital, life-affirming attributes everyone must embrace to lead a full life-and that in fact not only are these virtues not the opposite of evil, but that each is based on urges and instinct that are similar to the Seven Deadly Sins.
- Pride is a sin; Self-worth is essential to life.
- Envy is a sin; Emulation is essential to life.
- Anger is a sin; Righteous Indignation is essential to life.
- Lust is a sin; Holy Eros is essential to life.
- Gluttony is a sin; Communion is essential to life.
- Greed is a sin; Wanting Wisely is essential to life.
- Sloth is a sin; Contentment is essential to life.
