Eight Deadly Thoughts: Part 1

By Diogenes Allen

Food and drink. Sexual desires. Material goods. Resentment. Failure. Success. Self-centeredness. Comparison with others. We're constantly attacked by these thoughts, which can hinder our faith unless we develop some control over them. With the late Dr. Diogenes Allen, this course will draw upon the wisdom of the fourth-century desert fathers and mothers to address and counter the thoughts which stir up passion and inner turmoil and which keep us from growing in Christian love. This first part will explore the dangers of gluttony, lust, avarice, and sadness.
