Seven Deadly Sins

Mahatma Gandhi said seven things will destroy us. Notice that all of them have to do with social and political conditions.

Wealth without work…getting something for nothing.

Pleasure without conscience. The chief query of the immature, greedy, selfish and sensuous has always been, “What’s in it for me?”

Knowledge without character. As dangerous as a little knowledge is, even more dangerous is more knowledge without a strong, principled character.

Commerce (business) without morality (ethics). Economic and political systems are ultimately based on a moral foundation.

Science without humanity. If science becomes all technique and technology, it quickly degenerates into man against humanity.

Religion without sacrifice. Without sacrifice, we may become active in a church but remain inactive in its gospel.

Politics without principle. If there is no principle, there is no true north, nothing you can depend upon.
