Mortal Sin

Father Ripperger reminds us all that one mortal sin sends us to hell.

We must avoid mortal sin and confess it asap.

Do not wait.

Natural law in our hearts, minds, souls, informs us as humans what is serious sin.

Here is the CCC. My boldface type....

1860 Unintentional ignorance can diminish or even remove the imputability of a grave offense. But no one is deemed to be ignorant of the principles of the moral law, which are written in the conscience of every man. The promptings of feelings and passions can also diminish the voluntary and free character of the offense, as can external pressures or pathological disorders. Sin committed through malice, by deliberate choice of evil, is the gravest.

Few people are truly ignorant in Western society. So many opportunities for learning Catholic teaching exist, more than at any time in history, that those who stubbornly refuse to learn, to soften their hard hearts, to inform their consciences, are most likely culpable.

Why would someone continually chose evil over good? 

A good friend of mine told me this, and he is a young, young man.

"Some people just choose hell."  I am afraid he is correct.

They choose eternal death.
