The seven deadly sins: and, The seven cardinal virtues
It has long been believed that there are seven sins from which all other sins grow. These seven deadly sins serve as warnings to those traveling the path of the Christian life -- for it is these sins and those that stem from them that often lead us astray.
These sins are balanced with seven virtues from which all other virtues grow. The acts of cultivating these cardinal virtues build Christian character and lead to a life that is pleasing to God.
Originally published as two separate volumes in 1901 and 1902 by the American Tract Society, "The Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Cardinal Virtues" outlines these sins and virtues, giving believers a guide for facing good and evil in their Christian journey.
