[quote=slinky1882]Regarding #2. Augustine declared: ‘Let no one promise infants who have not been baptized a sort of middle place of happiness between damnation and Heaven, for this is what the Pelagian heresy promised them’ (The Soul and Its Origin, Patrologiae Latinae, Migne, 44:475). The same can be found in Jurgens “Faith of the Fathers”. And
…The souls of those who die in mortal sin or with original sin only, however, immediately descend to hell, to be punished with different punishments…–Council of Lyons II (1274), Declaration Concerning the Procession of the Holy Spirit, promulgated by Pope Gregory X, with later endorsements by popes Innocent V, Hadrian V, John XX1, Nicholas III, Martin IV, Honorius IV, Nicholas IV and Celestine V. (Denzinger 464) …Moreover, the souls of those who depart in actual mortal sin or in original sin only, descend immediately into hell but to undergo punishments of different kinds.—Council of Florence (1438-1445), Decree for the Greeks (from the Bull Laetentur coeli), promulgated by Pope Eugenius IV on July 6, 1430 (Denzinger 693)
Are both of these true???
There is no third place. At the end of time there will only be Heaven and Hell, there will be no in-between.
Those who die in a state of Mortal sin descend to the Hell of the damned. Those who die with only Original sin still on their soul would descend to Hell but not the Hell of the damned. They may be in the same place, Hell, but in different states with different punishments. Unless God in some way removed the stain of Original Sin, allowing them into Heaven. But maybe not into the Beatific Vision. Both of the statements from Lyons II and Florence assume that the stain of Original Sin remains.
