On One of the Deadly Sins: Envy

It was only the other week that I watched Seven. It’s a beautiful movie and featured the seven deadly sins in this order

  • Gluttony
  • Greed
  • Pride
  • Sloth
  • Lust
  • Envy
  • Wrath

It was such a sad movie for me even if it appears scary for others.  The serial killer preached in each kill where each one of the seven deadly sins is portrayed in every death.  So horrifying was the execution for the sin ‘lust’, where the prostitute was brutally murdered in a way I could never ever imagine as possible to happen.

All these sins, the killer admitted that he is ‘envy’ killing Brad Pitt’s wife portrayed by Gwyneth Paltrow because he realized he was envious of Brad Pitt’s life who is Detective David Mills in the movie.  Kevin Spacey played the serial killer. Praises to him for that brilliant portrayal!  🙂

The movie made me think about the envy sin.  It could really be a dangerous tool by anyone.  It could damage, it could separate, it could alienate, it could create animosity, and worst of all, it could kill.  To be the embodiment of this evil sin is not something that could give anyone benefit.  However, most people, blinded by envy, does not even realize that they are becoming or have become the total embodiment of envy.
