About This Quiz

The seven deadly sins also called the capital vices or cardinal sins, are a collection of vices that originated with a group of Christian hermits and monks known as the desert fathers around 3 AD, specifically theologian Evagrius Ponticus. He identified eight evil thoughts or spirits, which at the time, was called "Eight Logismoi." They consist of a group of habits or behaviors that are viewed as immoral by the Christian teachings and as such should be overcome or avoided. 

Depending on what list you come across, the sins may vary but usually include pride, lust, greed, gluttony, envy, sloth, and wrath. They are viewed by many as excessive behaviors that reflect poorly on a person while others see them as different types of indulgence, which should be allowed ever so often. 

In popular culture, there have been countless references to these sins, and it seems like everyone already knows what sin they struggle with. Which of the seven deadly sins are you most guilty of?
