Lessee…there’s vanity, doubt, panic, and what’s the other one?
Greed, I’m betting
Panic is so cute!
The large, hollow-eyed one is also later shown closer to a representation of lust, so might be overall a personal demon of hollow pleasures.
Also, vanity is shown here displaying aspects of pride in panel two, as well.
Vanity is emptiness or purposelessness. Pride is thinking that God is unnecessary (e.g., Dawkins et al), or that He cannot improve it.
That’s right — statements like “I am too vile for God to forgive, and too unimportant for Him to consider” are expressions of pride.
Glad to know I’m not the only one to realize you can brag about how unbraggable you are.
Only if this god you talk about exists. As of last count there were over four thousand (4 000) different gods or groups of gods being worshiped in the world.
Nice amount of Hubris you are showing by blindly assuming that your god is the real one (If there is even a real one).
Also a the sin of lying because you misrepresent Dawkins (could be unintentional if you have only heard about “The God Delusion” and not read it or his views on religion).
Pride isn’t thinking that a god is unnecessary. Pride is asserting that one is needed without bringing proof and automatically assuming that your version of a magic sky pixie is the only one that fits the bill and assuming that your pixie dust spreader exists.
That said the Aesir have a better claim at being needed since they promised to destroy all giants and we don’t see any around today where as the promises that have been made by the god of the abrahamistic religions have either all been of the kind ‘do this or else’ or broken by the god itself.
And yes I’m displaying hubris by assuming that from the few lines of text I can read that you are at least a conservative christian or even worse one of those fundagelical ones.
Might I suggest you read The Case for Christ, by Lee Strobel…
In it, he exposes plenty of evidence for Jesus Christ as a historical figure that did what the gospels say he did, and the validity of his claim to deity.
The book is the result of his hard-nosed journalist I’ll-prove-you-guys-wrong type of research into the subject, which led to his conversion to Christianity.
G.K. Chesterton, Fulton Sheen, and for a more modern fellow, Wolfgang Smith are also noteworthy apologist authors.
The Image shrinking thing is happening again… I can’t see lust molest monica good enough (wihtout clicking view image)
Ah. What I thought might be Wrath appears to be Greed.
