Is It Sinful to Take a Minimalist View of Faith?
#21
Quote:You must abandon yourself and your own will fully, or at least offer yourself up to God to make this attempt, if we are to hope for eternal life. We do so out of love. Is there a less perfect version of this, based on fear of hell? Yes, of course. This is a natural inclination and predisposition placed in our souls by God. It is to lead us to that next phase of actually loving Him and embracing Him for what He is, and not what the lack of Him might mean.

Where does the Church say this is required? To avoid Hell, one must die without the stain of mortal sin.
