If I had to choose, what would The Eighth Sin be. Definitely, Intolerance.

I read this blog about the seven sins, and what I thought the eighth sin should be.

The seven sins are avarice, wrath, sloth, envy, lust, pride and gluttony. According to Wikipedia “Each is a form of Idolatry-of-Self wherein the subjective reigns over the objective.” So following this line of thought I think the eighth sin would be intolerance. If you really think about it, most of the problems in this world would be solved if we learned to tolerate other people and their ideas. 

I’ve been thinking a lot about the conflict between Israel and Palestine, because it has personally affected me this last week (if I have time, maybe I’ll write a blog about why). And I think tolerance plays a big role on this conflict. But in this case we are talking about a war causing issue, it doesn’t always have to be a problem so big. Think of everyday problems you have with people, and how many of them could be solved if we were more tolerant. 

Comment or respond to my blog and tell me what you think would change for the better if we were more tolerant and I’ll feature your responses on my next blog.

  3. Hi. I tool think that intolerance should be the eight sin. We have progressed a lot as a society but I still think we are very immature and intolerant. Be it the way women are treated or religious intolerance, I just think we would be far more peaceful if we just found a way to accept the fact that there are many ways of living and celebrate it.
