Basically, the other day I was planning on doing something with my friend which is illegal in California (it wasn’t big or anything—i just wanted him to drive me a few minutes to the mall but he just got his license and you need to have had your license for a year to drive other minors).
I was under the impression that it was a venial sin since it isn’t a big law and didn’t have any big repercussions legally, plus he’s been driving for a while so and it was a relativley short drive so I thought it was safe.
So then I told him I MIGHT let him drive me because I was still iffy about it.
However, i began feeling guilty in plotting to do something I knew was sinful and so I changed my mind and told him im just gonna get my own ride. I also began feeling as though it was a mortal sin.
Was plotting to do something I thought was a venial sin but was actually mortal—a mortal sin?
Was breaking the law in question a mortal sin?
Was I simply being tempted? Or was this a sin?
