Can a psychotic person go to hell? No, they’re not responsible for their actions, here’s why

Can a psychotic person go to hell?


The simple answer is : NO. Here’s why:

A psychotic person is not in control of their reason and therefore cannot make morally bad choices. The reason for this is that for an action to be sinful there’s need for a “free choice”, a “conscious choice” that goes against the will of God. A psychotic person isn’t making any free choices because their judgments are impaired. Therefore, if one has been sick in this way from birth, it’s not unreasonable to conclude that they may not have even one sin attributed to them by God since they’re not in the right frame of mind. This is why i do not believe that aborted babies, who have received the objective salvation of God can be eternally separated from the vision of His glory. There is no actual sin, there is therefore no eternal punishment.

    Who is the author of this, and do they speak for the Church, The catechism is clear that baptism is required for salvation, and the Church only allows you to “hope” that it’s god isn’t a monster who sends the aborted, miscarried and stillborn to Hell.

    Being psychotic is a matter of degree. At what point does one regain “free will” and how is that measured and determined? How does the Church know scientifically whether one is capable of free will?
