Mortal Sin

Mortal sin is a transgression committed by a human person which has the possibility of death, if not absolved. To determine if the sin is mortal, three conditions must be met. The first is whether the object of the act is deliberately opposed to the love of God and neighbor (grave matter). Secondly, the person must of had sufficient reflection about the gravity of the act; and finally, does the person completely give consent to the purposed action.
