Mortal Sin Threads


#1

Sad but there is raw material for humour too.
Sometimes I think they must be joking anyway.
" I had a wicked thought the other day. is that a mortal sin?"
Either they have been given the wrong emphasis in Catholic teaching or they suffer OCD.
But “the eternal damnation” is overdone by some quarters I fear. That just makes the more sensitive types become even more obsessed.

There are no doubt some are joking, or trying to get a rise out of others. I do think quite a few are quite serious. Perhaps it is due to age, lack of knowledge or understanding. Maybe the three conditions for a sin to be mortal should be an automated first reply.

I don’t think we should ever make fun of someone’s concerns about mortal sin.
God bless.
