Seven Deadly Sins Vs Seven Heavenly Virtues

Seven Deadly Sins
The Seven Deadly Sins are those transgressions which are fatal to spiritual progress. You probably commit some of them every day without thinking about the rich tradition of eternal damnation in which you're participating. Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise.

Pride is also known as Vanity.

Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation.

Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.

Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.

Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.
Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.

The 7 Heavenly Virtues
Although Pious is the official keeper of the seven heavenly virtues, we receive input from all three celestial realms in the development and marketing of each virtue. Our virtues are used by Utopian Societies and occasionally by the BioFab to promote freedom of religion.

Truth - Truth is a comprehensive term that in all of its nuances implies honesty, accuracy, sincerity, integrity, and reality.

Love - A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection, devotion, and/or compassion toward a person.

Courage - The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or change with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.
