OK, I need some help figuring this out. I posed this question to “Ask an Apologist” a few weeks ago, but apparently, it was not deemed worthy of an answer.:o
Any way, I know that the seven deadly, or capital sins, of sloth, gluttony, pride, greed, wrath, lust, and envy are sins, but at what point do move from being a venial sin to a mortal sin? Or are they always mortal sins? For instance, if I go to a party and over eat a bit, not to the point that I am ill, but maybe just a bit uncomfortable, is that a mortal or venial sin? Or if I just don’t feel like doing all of my housework one day, because I’m tired, etc., am in in a state of mortal sin because I’m being “lazy.”
Can someone please explain this to me like I’m a 3rd grader.
Thank you for your time.
