There are seven destructive sins that, once dedicated, lessen the possibility of unceasing life and bliss in paradise. They are alluded to as dangerous in light of the fact that every transgression is firmly connected to another, prompting other more prominent sins. The seven savage sins are pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, and greed. Geoffrey Chaucer's gem, The Canterbury Tales, gave a superb anecdote about the destructive sins. Concentrating essentially on the wrongdoings of pride, and voracity, the characters found in The Canterbury Tales, especially The Pardoner's Tale, were so overpowered by their natural cravings and aspirations that they neglected to see the impacts of their corrupt activities, hence denying themselves of salvation.

Why do these characters in the Scarlet Letter have a “good and evil” side to them? This question is what most readers ask themselves when reading the Scarlet Letter. While I read this book, I felt that you could pick out whom Hawthorne was trying to depict as sinner and a saint. This book is a perfect example of the argument that people have now a day that everyone has a good and a bad side. All of these characters have good and evil in them and there perfect examples in this book. Light and dark imagery, alluding to the larger conflict between good and evil, is present throughout the novel in the characters of Hester Prynne, Pearl, and
Having left the problem of moral in Grimm fairy tales open, we have contributed to establishing the correlation between these tales and the seven deadly sins.

For the study to be more profound, a research has been made into the phenomenon of the seven deadly sins.

Greed. Envy. Gluttony. Wrath. Lust. Pride. Sloth. These acts and feelings are what most Christians consider the seven deadly sins.

The world can be open to interpretation depending on how one looks at it. What seems wrong to one person might just be the norm for another. It is all about perception. In the “Possibility of Evil”, a normal town, plagued by different types of evil is in turmoil because of the different opinions of its people. To Miss Strangeworth, the townspeople drifted away from their morals, but to the town, Miss Strangeworth’s letters are the malevolent act.

"Pride, Envy, Wrath, Gluttony, Lust, Sloth, and Greed. The seven deadly sins." The sins everyman encounters in life and how I encountered mine.

There are many themes for dealing with the problem of Evil. The one I would like to discuss is do specific evil result of specific sins. I believe some evil is a result of sin and some evil is not. A good example is David in the Bible. Erickson states, "A case in point is David, whose sin with Bathsheba and murder of Uriah resulted in the death of the child of David and Bathsheba as well as conflict in David's household. This perhaps should be thought of more in terms of the effects of certain acts than in terms of punishment from the God. We do not know what was involved, but it may well be that certain conditions pertaining at the time of the act of adultery resulted in a genetic defect
The Bible classifies the seven deadly sins – greed, envy, sloth, wrath, gluttony, pride and lust – as the characteristics of people which will lead to unhappiness. One particular sin evident in our world today is greed. Greed is defined as an excessive desire to possess wealth or goods.

Before sin fell, Earth was a place of paradise. Everyone could live in harmony and man could walk with God. Once Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge, sin entered the world and man became disorderly. Today, people try to control their sins by going to therapy, taking some medication, meditating, etc. Thomas More wants to return to a perfect Utopian society similar to the land of Paradise.

A society made to remove sin may seem logical in More’s eyes, but his philosophy for the use of gold and silver, the management of the slaves, the political system, and Utopian clothing are unattainable.
Whether or not humans are essentially evil or sympathetic is a question that has long left many philosophers in a state of conflict. Through the evaluation of natural human qualities, many different opinions have been formed. The so called “laws” of the world attempt to define a set of uncertain rules which are to govern society in its most raw form, dictate moral rights and wrongs, and create boundaries. Every single action can be separated into any of these three categories, depending upon the action. The Bible states that it is only through baptism that a sin may be removed from the carrier. Non-religious opinions may offer a similar opinion in a sense that humans possess the capability of committing evil acts. Human beings are in
