    From my understanding not forming your conscious is a sin, is this correct?
    Let me know your thoughts.

    Not sure if it is. I think not seeking out the truth or not seeking God is sin. I guess if someone doesn’t know that something better is out there how are they supposed to know to look for it?

    Right. But what about people that KNOW there is more out there. Like some of our own brothers and sisters that just go through the motions of Mass and they do try to do the right thing but don’t pick up a Bible or want to learn more to form their conscious. This one is hard because every persons situation is different. But let’s assume that they DO have time and DO have the capacity to learn more. Is it a sin then?

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Well, then yes. <img src=” title=”Smile” /> If someone has the capacity to seek the truth then they ought to. It is our duty and obligations as Christians to do so (in my understanding).

    This is correct. The Catechism instructs that if you have the faculties that you are bound to know your faith and live it. If you do not have the facilities you get a by lol. But is it a sin? I’m not sure that it is a sin, need to research that but I would guess it could be a Capital Sin of Sloth, lazy in faith? But that seems extreme. I will do a little more research on this one, I real curious now <img src=” title=”Smile” />

    Well, if by not forming your conscience it is keeping you from God then it [i:3vcmbo7j]could[/i:3vcmbo7j] be considered a sin. <img src=:” title=”Question” />

    If not to seeking the truth is a sin, then to what extent is it not a sin?
    For example, if we didn’t spend time one day out of the week because of whatever reason… have we sinned? Or is it not a sin, as long as you are continually looking for answers and dedicating time here and there, not necessarily every day, but you are honestly keeping up with it?

    It is hard to say Rick. Because I can’t make that call. Everybody knows how much time they have and they know their priorities. Obviously God should be your top priority but God also knows you have to work and take care of family and so on. That is part of living the Christian life. But it can also be sinful if you are spending too much time reading theology books, chatting and so on, while depriving your family in some form. I am guilty of this <img src=” title=”Sad” /> . Hope that helps man. Anyone else have some thoughts on this?

    Yeah that’s way I thought of it, it just comes down to balancing and prioritizing. Luckily God forgives! <img src=” title=”Very Happy” />
