Dieing with sin that is not fatal?


#1

If one dies with sin that is not fatal to the soul, but certainly can’t go to heaven because nothing unclean enters heaven, and can’t go to hell becuase the sin this person had is not mortal, what happens?


#2

Continued;

This person lives a perfect sinless life according to his knowledge and dies one day becuase he/she was knowingly speeding 5 mph over the speed limit (probable a venial sin to speed- sin not mortal) crashes and dies. Would he/she deserve hell, or what happens?

Nobody really knows enough about life after death to answer this.:cool:

If one dies with sin that is not fatal to the soul, but certainly can’t go to heaven because nothing unclean enters heaven

Not necessarily;
The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”
Mark 10: 26-27

Purgatory.

most likely the person will go to purgatory. So that they may have their soul cleansed.
