This is the third thread asking this question, because I have not gotten a strait answer from the first two attempts.
To start with, it is very easy to lose all or most of your memories. All it takes is a neurological disease or a bad accident, and you won’t even remember your name. In some severe instances, accidents have left people in such poor conditions that they are permanently reduced to the mental capabilities of a three year old.
My question is this: If someone commits a Mortal Sin, has no intention of ever confessing or repenting, but suffers such a bad accident that they lose all their memories (they can’t even remember their own name, let alone their Mortal Sin), will he still be held accountable for his sin in the eyes of God? Will someone go to Hell for sins they committed which they are incapable of even remotely remembering?
I thought of this question after watching the film Regarding Henry. It is a movie in which a bad person suffers from severe Retrograde Amnesia as a result of a near-fatal shooting, has to be re-taught everything, and becomes a better person than he was before his Amnesia.
