I know there has been a lot of threads dealing with mortal sin, but I can’t go through so many pages to find the answer to my question. So forgive me if this has been asked before.
I know that for sins to be mortal, it has to meet 3 conditions:
- the sin is grave matter
- you know that the sin is grave by the time you commit it
- you have the full consent of it.
my question is: how about those sins of grave matter which we committed before our conversion. for example for a lapse catholic or those who previously was unbeliever. they probably does not have the knowledge if certain things are considered grave sins according to catholic church, because there are many who are considered okay by the standard of the world but is “grave” by the catholic church, e.g. contraception, porn or even soft porn, pre-marital sex, etc. if suppose they commit one of these grave sins and with full consent before their conversion, it meets first and third condition, but not the second I think. Does this considered a mortal sin?
