Seven Deadly Sins: Gluttony, Lust…Is Anyone Paying Attention?

Elise Hilton (Acton PowerBlog):

We cannot simply have everything we want, whenever we want it. It creates chaos, illness, dysfunction; in short, we sin ourselves to death. This isn’t “neutering;” this is health, sanity and salvation. It’s common sense. It’s self-preservation. To lose control of our appetites brings us to the Gates of Hell, as Dante knew:

I am the way into the city of woe,

I am the way into eternal pain,

I am the way to go among the lost.

Justice caused my high architect to move:

Divine omnipotence created me,

The highest wisdom, and the primal love.

Before me there were no created things

But those that last forever–as I do.

Abandon all hope you who enter here.

Dante’s “Inferno”
