I have a friend who was born and raised in the Catholic faith but in his adult years has abandoned his Catholic upbringing and hasn’t been to Mass in over 25 years nor receives any of the Sacraments such as confession. Although this person still believes in God and lives a fairly moral life with good values but now believes that attending church is not necessary for salvation and he firmly believes he will go to Heaven. I told him, in my opinion, he was taking a big gamble because the Catholic Church teaches if one misses Mass without a valid reason that is a mortal sin and if they die without confessing it, that person will likely end up in hell. Of course, he dismissed my opinion and quickly changed the subject so I guess my question is. If a person lives a fairly good moral life such as this person but refuses to attend church (or confession), do you think they are destined for hell?
