How do you differentiate between mortal sin and just being tempted to sin? If you are tempted and begin to desire it, is that a mortal sin (if the object is grave matter)? Or does it require full desire of it?
I know mortal sin requires grave matter, full knowledge and full consent. I guess my question is how you know when you’ve given full consent?
What if you feel as if you’re in a state of mortal sin but can’t tell why or what sin it is … have any of you ever experienced that? Often I feel as if I should not receive Holy Communion and that I need to go to Confession. Then I confess only to feel less peace.
Thanks in advance.
Pax Christi tecum.
