Q&A

If someone is unsure about whether a sin is mortal or not, doesn’t that mean it isn’t mortal sin?

Question:

Q: I was reading a pamphlet on confession that says if a sin is doubtfully mortal then it is best to confess it for the sake of peace of conscience. But wouldn&#039;t the fact that one is doubtful about the nature of a sin indicate that the sin wasn&#039;t mortal, for which one must have full knowledge and full consent?<br />
