Lets say we have a guy in a state of mortal sin heading to confession. On his way, a jihadist captures him, puts a gun to his head, and says renounce your faith or die.
Here’s the part that I find tricky in this scenario: If he chooses to not renounce his faith, he would be a martyr; However, he was in a state of mortal sin when he died.
What happens here? Does martyrdom forgive all sins in a similar way to baptism?
