What’s the big deal with sin? Isn’t the whole idea just an antiquated idea to steer us away from enjoying our freedom to be and do anything we want? Can a list of sins created 1500 years ago hold key to the best life possible? Join us as we take a look into the seven deadly sins!

The earliest mention of the Seven Deadly Sins in History come from a monk named Evagrius of Pontus who in 553 A.D. It was in the desert that Evagrius identified and listed eight demons (nagging sins) that couldn’t be avoided but had to be dealt with.

Evagrius’s list of 8 demons, over time and thought, became known as the Seven Deadly Sins: pride, gluttony, envy, greed, anger, sloth and lust. Join us as we dive in to understanding how to identify what’s really going on with these famous sins and learn how to combat them in our lives.
