I have only been Catholic for 2 years and I am still trying to understand what constitutes “Leading others into Sin”
I know If say… I had some drugs and I gave them to someone else knowing they would use them, that would be leading another to sin. I know if I have a girlfriend who is trying to be chaste but I start purposely turning her on and it leads to intercourse, I have led her into sin.
But let say me and my friend are drinking beer at my house. Lets say he wants to get more beer and I know there is a chance he could get drunk, am I leading him to sin by allowing him to get more beer and drink?
I can think of another time when I was driving a friend home and he asked me to take him to the grocery store first. He said he was going to buy some beer and that he was going to get drunk. I said to myself “Well, I have no control over him” and though I did not want to help him get drunk, the fact of the matter is I took him to the store to buy the beer.
So, in matters like that, does that constitute leading another into sin? Is it more like a sin of omission? Grave matter? Venial? Not sin at all? Can anyone help me out? Thank you.
