The 7 Deadly Sins

Posted on 27 October 2011

The 7 Deadly Sins have been known since early Christian times, representing vices that are fatal to spiritual progress. In a recent poll, a majority of users confess to committing at least one of the 7 deadly sins. Envy was the most frequent, committed by 63% of respondents. Concerning which deadly sin is the worst, greed came in first place, chosen by 29% of users, and envy and wrath followed with 17% and 16% of votes.

Respondents were also questioned on their belief about punishment in hell for these sins. The answer was clear; 74% say they do not believe in it. When analyzing the data by religion, we discovered that Muslims were the ones who believe the most in it, with 63% of votes. However, a majority of respondents (57%) do believe that the deadly sins they have committed have brought them consequences.

If you think the 7 deadly sins are something old fashioned, think again. According to 58% of respondents, they were created to teach values and 55% agree that they make sense in today’s society.
