Seven Deadly Zins

Being the son of a preacher I was made aware at an early age of the 7 things God hates found in Proverbs 6:16-19.  I grew up being throughly taught about all the things a Christian is NOT to do.  Of course in the New Testament the list of bad things, set forth in the Epistle of Galatians (Galatians 5:19-21), includes more of the traditional seven sins, although the list is substantially longer: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, "and such like".  I have no problem with believing we should avoid these things.  But just this week I came across something that arrested my attention. 7 Deadly Zins not Sins...Zins.   Of course I checked and rechecked the list and it was not there, so I bought it and have now tried it, and think in moderation it is quite nice.

I like that post. I guess fine wine with long meals is better then drinking a lot of wine with a short meal. (though it's more challenging)

I think moderation is the key word there so it's not 7 bottles of Zin in one sitting.
