The hall of temptation

You walk towards the centre of the room, taking pictures as you go. There are seven large columns spaced around the outside of the room, and an eighth located in the centre. You go to the centre pillar, and find a staircase leading up to the top. You climb it quickly, and find a carved stone tablet resting on a pedestal, written in a foreign language. As you look at it longer, however, the letters begin to shift and change, and suddenly the words are readable.

'The room of temptation.

Only those who can resist the temptation of the Seven Deadly Sins can escape this room. They must prove themselves as pure of heart and mind, and leave without becoming corrupted. The exit will open after one hour.'

You read through the tablet several times, taking in its meaning. So these columns represent the Seven Sins, huh? You count them off on your fingers: Pride, Lust, Greed, Wrath, Sloth, Envy and Gluttony. And you have to survive for a whole hour without giving in to the temptation of any of them. This'll be a challenge, and you're not completely sure if you're up for it.
