Pope Francis: No Hell Fire, Adam and Eve Not Real

Share This

Pope-Francis-10 One man who is out to right many old “wrongs” in the Catholic church is Pope Francis. Some of the beliefs that are held in the church but contrary to the loving nature of God are being corrected by the Pope who was name The Man of The Year by TIME Magazine. I don’t know if he truly said this, but read it below…

In his latest revelations, Pope Francis was quoted by Diversity Chronicle as saying:

“Through humility, soul searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God.”

In a shocking speech that is reverberating across the world, Pope Francis declared that:

“All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? In the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no longer judge. Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice! For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God.”

In the last six months, Catholic cardinals, bishops and theologians have been deliberating in the Vatican City, in discussing the future of the church and redefining long-held Catholic doctrines and dogmas. The Third Vatican Council, is the largest and most important since the Second Vatican Council was concluded in 1962.

Pope Francis convened the new council to “finally finish the work of the Second Vatican Council.”

The Third Vatican Council concluded with Pope Francis announcing that…

Catholicism is now a “modern and reasonable religion, which has undergone evolutionary changes. The time has come to abandon all intolerance. We must recognize that religious truth evolves and changes. Truth is not absolute or set in stone. Even atheists acknowledge the divine. Through acts of love and charity the atheist acknowledges God as well, and redeems his own soul, becoming an active participant in the redemption of humanity.”

One statement in the Pope’s speech has sent traditionalists into a fit of confusion and hysteria…

“God is changing and evolving as we are, For God lives in us and in our hearts. When we spread love and kindness in the world, we touch our own divinity and recognize it. The Bible is a beautiful holy book, but like all great and ancient works, some passages are outdated. Some even call for intolerance or judgement. The time has come to see these verses as later interpolations, contrary to the message of love and truth, which otherwise radiates through scripture. In accordance with our new understanding, we will begin to ordain women as cardinals, bishops and priests. In the future, it is my hope that we will have a woman pope one day. Let no door be closed to women that is open to men!”

A few cardinals in the Catholic church are against Pope Francis’ latest declarations. Watch out for the report.

    In what the writer described as the Popes “latest revelations”, he extensively quoted from a site, “Diversity Chronicles”, several statements purportedly from the Pope. I will just like to advise that this story is not factual, it is not real. There has not been a 3rd Vatican Council, and none of the events took place, and no such positions as in the publication were ever taken by the Catholic Church. The entire story is a Satire, the product of one man’s fictitious imagination put up on his website, and in which he clearly states that the write-up is for his own ‘personal amusement’. The story seems to have fooled so many despite the “disclaimer” in the website.

    I understand it is not easy to meet the high burden of separating fiction from factual stories before publication. But this is exactly what the devil wants, his own agenda- to peddle falsehood relentlessly discrediting the catholic church, and causing further division and confusion amongst Christians. Many will soon start commenting on the alleged position of the Church in the article, holding strong positions for and against, and if I know our people well, they’ll even start abusing each other, without realizing they have been deceived.

    Anyway, I felt I should just draw your attention to the fact that this story is only a fiction.
