Yeah, everyone indulges in some of each, but which of the seven deadly sins do you find the most tempting? Which one is the most likely to push the down button on your soul’s express elevator to hell? When Se7en’s John Doe adds you to an elaborate deathtrap, which one will inspire the direction of his tableau?
For purposes of this discussion, let’s go with the seven outlined in Wikipedia, and not, say, the seven enemies of man outlined in Captain Marvel comics:
[li]Lust: sexual desire[/li][li]Gluttony: overindulgence to the point of waste[/li][li]Greed: excessive acquisition of wealth[/li][li]Sloth: “failure to utilize one’s talents and gifts”[/li][li]Wrath: hatred and anger (classic dark side of the Force)[/li][li]Envy: wanting what someone else has, and wanting them not to have it[/li][li]Pride: excessive love of self and a desire for importance[/li][/ol]
My answer? Lust, more than likely. I’m married and faithful, but a sexy woman will still catch my eye. (Happily, my wife doesn’t mind. And happily, she’s one of them.) I can turn down dessert, I can get my ass in gear to utilize my talents, but I’m still disproportionally flattered when an attractive woman is giving me her attention. If I’m going to fall, it’s going to be through an hourglass.
