If we are to develop and progress spiritually there are things we must abstain from. For instance there are the seven ‘deadly sins’ of Christianity which were compiled by Pope Gregory I around the year 600. These are Pride, Covetousness, Lust, Envy, Gluttony, Anger and Sloth. There are others, such as wrongfully injuring others, telling lies with malicious intent, theft, sensuality and deceit.
