Police is Not a Public Enterprise

Man's Freedom and the Morality of Human Acts
True freedom is: 
a). The ability to do as one wishes. b). The right to do as one should. c). Nonexistent, since man's actions are predetermined by genetic and cultural forces. d). is not a Christian concept, since obedience to God's commands limits our freedom in return for eternal life. e). a and d. 

True or false: Anytime a person commits a seriously wrong act, one may judge that that person is in a state of mortal sin. 

A man, 85 years old, is in the hospital suffering from cancer. The pain is excruciating. The doctor is giving him painkillers to ease his suffering, but the dosage must be increased in order to continue to relieve his pain. The doctor knows that the increased dosage is necessary if the pain is to continue to be relieved, but that it also may be lethal to the man, even though neither the patient nor the doctor desires his death. With the patient's consent the doctor gives the dosage and the patient dies. Was this action morally allowable according to Catholic moral theology? Why or why not? 

True or false: Whether an act is morally right or wrong depends solely on the intention of the person doing the action. If a person has an good intention in doing an act, then the act is morally right. 

True or false: The passions (the emotions of love, hatred, joy, sadness, anger, fear, daring, desire, dislike, despair, hope) are neither morally good nor bad in themselves.

True or false: It is a more perfect act if a person, in order to do a good act, must overcome feelings of disgust toward doing the right thing than to do the same act with a willingness, ease and joy in doing it. 

Sin is: 
a). An offense against reason, truth, and right conscience. b). A failure in genuine love for God and neighbor caused by a perverse attachment to certain goods. c). An offense against God. d). The love of oneself even to contempt of God. e). All of the above. 

True or false: Mortal sin is a sin specifically against God, while venial sin is a sin against another person. 

What are the three elements required for an act to be considered a mortal sin? 

Venial sins: 
a). weaken charity in the soul, but does not destroy it. b). merit eternal punishment. c). can dispose us little by little to commit mortal sin. d). is a disorder affection for created goods. e). a, c and d. f). a and d. g). b and c.
