In life, we are taught that there are seven deadly sins.
We all know the big ones: Gluttony, pride, lust.
But the sin you don't hear much about is anger.
Maybe it's because we think anger's not that dangerous.
That we can control it.
My point is, maybe we don't give anger enough credit.
Maybe it can be a lot more dangerous than we think.
After all, when it comes to destructive behavior...
...it did make the top seven.
So what makes anger different from the six other deadly sins?
It's pretty simple really.
You give in to a sin like envy or pride then you only hurt yourself.
Try lust or coveting and you'll only hurt yourself, and probably one or two others.
But anger...anger is the worst.
The mother of all sins.
Not only can anger drive you over the edge, when it does, you can take an awful lot
of other people with you.
