Does God love us less if we confess a mortal sin?
#1
Less than if we'd only committed venial sins throughout our life, I mean. Please be patient with me: I'm trying to work out some scruples.

You're going to sin. You should try not to, but when you do, confess away. Reconciliation is just that, getting right with God. I would never recommend avoiding confession. Do it often and mean it.

Cheers.

I think the story of the Prodigal Son should answer your question.

I would make one point.

God never loves us less.

We turn away from him, he never turns from us.

In a sense He loves us more if he gives us the grace to confess our sins, at least more than those he does not offer that grace to.

As Magister alludes, God's love isn't based on our merits.

Don't worry about how much God loves you. Trust me He Loves you way more than enough and more than you or I deserve. What God loves is showing mercy. Look at King David and his sins, yet he was a "man after God's own heart." Give God the opportunity to show mercy to you. Then repent like King David.
