I use to understandit as, NOOS is something that will very likely lead an individual into mortal sin. However, browsing some threads I’ve seen people call all SORTS of different things NOOS! I’ve also seen people say, “no, you can’t do that, that will be a near occasion of sin for you.”
wel…how do you know? :shrug: I understand things like heavy making out or pornography are near occasions of sin in and of themselves, but I don’t see how you can label something by saying, “that will bea near occasion of sin for YOU?”
Additionally, I’ve seen people warning not to do something saying, “just because you aren’t tempted to sin now doesn’t mean you won’t be in the future!” …well, doesn’t that mean it’s NOT a NOOS? at least not at the moment? Methinks our temptations change as we grow older, mature, or stumble. I don’t understanding avoiding something that causes no harm now nor in the forseeable future, just because it MIGHT SOMEDAY be a NOOS…isn’t that branching a little far?
