Willing to commit a mortal sin


This might sound weird but I am concerned…

I was thinking and I thought that I’d be willing to commit a mortal sin. But then I realized that willing that would be a mortal sin, so I obviously stopped.

Does that sound like it Was that lacking full knowledge? It’s like I was willfully thinking that but didn’t actual realize I was committing a grave sin by thinking that. It’s complicated because I was thinking id be willing to commit a mortal sin, which you’d think would be self evident for recognizing it’s an offense against God.


I got dizzy trying to follow that. I would say that you’re scrupling over something which is only going to cause you confusion and doubt. You might ought to speak to a priest if scrupulosity is something you struggle with.
