Pride, lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, envy, and wrath are more known as the seven deadly sins. These are classifications of vices in Christian teaching. While these have been around since the 3rd century AD, a new representation has now come forth.

Ari Paul used sites and apps like Netflix, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram which represent each of the cardinal vices.

Other sites included Facebook for envy, Yelp for gluttony…

…and LinkedIn for greed.

It is no surprise Tinder represented lust.

This dating app lets you find a “match” and more often than not, dates turns to hook-ups. Instagram got pride and it’s probably due to the fact that many people have Instagram filled with photos of themselves. While this is not a bad thing entirely, vanity can give birth to other immoralities.

Twitter was used for wrath.

This might have stemmed from the many Twitter feuds that has happened ever since the site’s birth. Who knew 140 characters could bring on such rage?

Netflix was for sloth.

Indeed, it was very hard to get away from good series with episodes after episodes readily available.
