We are living in a time when words mean...well, whatever one wants them to mean. They can be thrown around in vague ways that create confusion and at times, complete opposite ideas from their original denotation. John Koessler's latest book, Dangerous Virtues: How to Follow Jesus When Evil Masquerades as Good, takes a look at the 7 deadly sins mentioned in scripture and warns us about how they have been re-written in society today.
