Iwas just wondering, what is considered a mortal sin in the catholic religion ?
This is a response to Avim. BOTTOM-LINE: The Bible says ALL sin is DEADLY and will result in ETERNAL DEATH in HELL ( NOT Purgatory...for there is NO Purgatory mentioned in the Bible) unless it is forgiven by the Lord Jesus Christ.
You are very much mistaken on this. THe bible makes a clear distinction between mortal and venial in 1 John 5:16&17
If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is not deadly, he should pray to God and he will give him life. This is only for those whose sin is not deadly. There is such a thing as deadly sin, about which I do not say that you should pray. All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that is not deadly.
That said, in order for a sin to be considered mortal or deadly three conditions must be present:
A mortal sin has to fall into these criteria...
Its' subject must be a grave (or serious) matter.
It must be committed with full knowledge, both of the sin and of the gravity of the offense (though nobody is deemed to be ignorant of the moral law, embedded into the consciences of every human being);
It must be committed with deliberate and complete consent, enough for it to have been a personal decision to commit the sin.
There's not a list of what is considered a mortal sin...but the general idea is...When you do something that YOU KNOW IS WRONG...and you do it anyway, knowing that it's against your OWN concious knowledge of what is right and what is wrong...Any of the ten commandments "could" a mortal sin, but the Catholic church allows for retardation, mental illness, immaturity, and the list goes on. You can be absolved with confession...

***I do not know what the criteria is for "mortal sin" in the catholic religion...so I will not comment on it. However, in the Christian faith ALL sin is "mortal sin" and results in PERDITION: "For the WAGES of SIN is DEATH, but the GIFT of God is ETERNAL life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord" [Romans 6:23]...and again..."The soul who SINS is the one who will DIE" [Ezekiel 18:4].

*["...what is considered a mortal sin in the catholic religion?"]
***I don't know specifically what particular sins are considered "mortal" sins...but I do know that the Catholic church considers such deadly enough to send you to Hell if you don't confess them to a priest.
The Biblical definition for "mortal/deadly" sins is...that "all" sin is deadly. The scriptures do not elaborate about the magnitude of sin...only that "the WAGES of (all) sin is DEATH" [Romans 6:23].
BOTTOM-LINE: There is no such thing as a "venial/small" sin...for ALL sin is "mortal/deadly" and it's WAGES is eternal death in Hell.

No... it doesn't...
'Hell' is a Pagan term. And it was used incorrectly (among other things) in later biblical translations in some passages in place of 'Gehnna' and 'Hades'
Harming others by any means mentally or physically with conscious free will one has been bestowed with by divinity is obviously a sin. Its just one step going further to invite our rebirth in this world...ofcourse one believes in the doctrine of rebirth.
its a sin you commit that only human can make... god gave us a consience, so if you are commiting a sin with full consent, you are making a mortal sin.
...it's those sins for which the OT called out the death penalty.
