But in Judges chapter 16 verse 1, we see sth worse than that.
I still wonder... he didn't cease to be special to God after breaking the 6th commandment. He was still different from the others. But so many good catholics lead chaste and holy lives and are still ordinary and one of the folk. It is enough for them commit a single mortal sin to lose all the graces and be called an enemy of God.
I am so sorry but the islamic heresy seems so true to me:
"chosen ones are chosen ones even if they sin,
ordinary people are ordinary even if they do good."
No, if anyone commits a mortal sin they are an enemy of God.
This or that person might repent, and then it seems like that mortal sin is a small side-track or detour in their life which didn't hurt them. But if they HAD died after committing that sin, they would be in Hell. So in that respect, they are not special.
They were "lucky", as it were. It's best for none of us to try our luck, and hope that we will have lots of time for repentance. Better to be safe than sorry.
It's true that God in His infinite wisdom gives more grace to some than to others -- but He knows best. We know nothing.
