I keep hearing, on various occasions, that murder is the one sin, that can’t be forgiven. That makes no sense to me. I can understand that the temporal consequences would be much deeper than that of a venial sin, and it’s obviously one of the most, if not the most, mortal of sins. But if someone had committed murder, if it’s unforgiveable, than what would be the point of repentance, then? or conversion, if one wasn’t a Christian at that point?
I would think that that would exclude, among others, St Paul, who, as a Pharisee, oversaw, if not partook of the persecution of many Christians, and stoning to death was part of that persecutions. I’ve got to think that when I hear that from some Catholics that they are mis-understanding something somewhere.
Thanks, and God bless,
