I was just watching CAL on YouTube and Tim Staples was the guest for the two hours today (9/25/18).
During the second hour (at around 1 hour 45 minutes of the upload currently on YouTube)Tim Staples: Catholic Answers Live - 09/25/18
He is responding to a caller asking about whether or not original sin is God’s fault. Mr. Staples of course takes the negative, saying that it is not. He goes on to talk about their preternatural gifts and how they were taken away.
MY QUESTION: Mr. Staples then goes on to state that a soul does not go to hell because of original sin. He references the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 1037, which talks about mortal sin and being unrepentant unto death.
I was under the understanding that we could go to hell because of Original Sin. I already understand the concept of baptism by desire, but Mr. Staples stresses the fact that one does not go to hell strictly because of Original Sin.
Can someone explain this or point me to something that expands on this?
