I searched for these topics but found none, so I am asking the question. Is skydiving and extreme sports (racing, rock climbing, skating) a sin? Reason I ask is because I am going skydiving in 2 months and it will be my second time. Since my first time (over 2 years ago) I've become more devout Catholic, praying the Rosary, going to Mass, and confession. I am not afraid of jumping off the plane since I am a risk taker, but I am afraid that if, God forbid, I died I might go to hell?
Now, we take risk everyday, when we dive, get on a plane, ride a bike, play sports, and other things. We constantly put our lives at risk, so I wonder what's different from these other sports?
