    Mortal sin can be repented.

    Is it possible for a person with a mortal sin still on his soul to die and go to heaven? | Catholic Answers

    I already tried to tell him that, and even linked to a site that proved it. Unfortunately, there are a bunch of experts that have all the answers already.

    Correction, I misinterpreted your statement, Quantum. There may be those who do not believe in a final reckoning or divine punishment; however, they would be in the minority.

    Never said they were anything but a minority, did I? Just that they exist.

    Quantum is right. No need to look it up.
    There is no condemnation for a person that accepts the gift of salvation. None. zero. zip. Impossible.
    To believe there is, is to call Jesus inadequate, and God a liar.

    If God remembers your sins no more what do you think He is going to judge you on?
    Did Jesus forget to pay for some of your sins while hanging on the cross?

    Quantum was not talking about those who accept the gift of salvation. He was suggesting some Christians do not believe in a day of reckoning and the second coming.
