HISTORY of Christian Theology

Is the Roman Catholic doctrine that various sins are so grave that they kill the new life in Christ that was conferred at baptism, and if a person dies in this state of mortal sin he or she goes to hell. Less grievous sins are called venial sins and if a person has not purged himself from these lesser sins through the sacrament of penance by the time he dies, he must spend time in purgatory to purge himself from these lesser sins before they go to heaven. However, person who die while in a state of mortal sin are condemned to hell forever.
