    Ha, Pope Francis claims there's no Hell or life after death for sinners (to a reporter), and then an official statement from the Vatican tries to clean it up!

    "In an article entitled "It is an honor to be called a revolutionary," La Repubblica editor Eugenio Scalfari acknowledged the pontiff's previous remarks about how "good souls" who sought repentance from God would receive it and then asked: "What about the bad souls?". Seemingly going against centuries of core Christian belief, Pope Francis said the souls of sinners simply vanished after death, and were not subject to an eternity of punishment.

    "They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear," Pope Francis said, as translated by Catholic blog Rorate Caeli.

    "There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls," he added.

    Catholic Pope Francis made a startling revelation Thursday by stating that hell did not exist, in an interview with a leading liberal Italian newspaper.

    In an article entitled "It is an honor to be called a revolutionary," La Repubblica editor Eugenio Scalfari acknowledged the pontiff's previous remarks about how "good souls" who sought repentance from God would receive it and then asked: "What about the bad souls?". Seemingly going against centuries of core Christian belief, Pope Francis said the souls of sinners simply vanished after death, and were not subject to an eternity of punishment.

    "They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear," Pope Francis said, as translated by Catholic blog Rorate Caeli.

    "There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls," he added.

    Shortly after the article was published, the Vatican issued a statement that claimed the article was "not a faithful transcript" and that the meeting between Pope Francis and Scalfari was a private meeting and not a formal interview.

    "What is reported by the author in today’s article is the result of his reconstruction, in which the literal words pronounced by the Pope are not quoted. No quotation of the aforementioned article must therefore be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father," the Vatican said in a statement translated by the Catholic News Agency."

    Who knows if it's true, but it sure seems credible. Why would a guy make it up after meeting the Pope?

    It's truly a sad State of Affairs in our world when even a religion which is been called a false religion comes to realize that there is no hell like is commonly taught within those false religions and openly admits it it's indeed a sad State of Affairs when a Bible called the King James makes known to the public that it was wrong to take the name Jehovah out of the Bible and puts it back in the Bible and then suddenly people begin to criticize the authors of the King James Bible! The Bible says that in the last days people will dream dreams and see visions and knowledge will be increased there are people coming out of a false religion honestly seeking Jehovah God and wanting to obey Jesus Christ and all their finding is pig food like the prodigal son that left his father's house and found himself stuck in a foreigners field having to tend and unclean animal and eat what they ate when will people come to their senses and stop turning to religions every religion says I'm the true religion! And none of them and I do mean none of them are! I take it right out of the Bible the Bible says that none are righteous no not one the Bible doesn't say none are righteous except the Catholics None are righteous accept the Mormons none are righteous except Jehovah's Witnesses. It says None are righteous it's time that we realize who our savior is our savior is Jesus Christ whose name means Jehovah is my salvation all of us that are within religion no matter what division of religion that we got stuck with need to place our Focus upon Jesus Christ God's word the Bible and pray daily and fervently that God directs us with his holy spirit to help those within the congregation that God has placed us with! To bring the word of Jesus Christ to everybody! The Bible says get out of her my people if you don't want to share with her and her sins if you don't want to receive part of her plagues. And when the Bible says that that doesn't mean to run from your church and run to another that means to separate yourself as The Shining Light Within the building that you're in right now and if possible bring the truth of Jesus Christ to them and if that's impossible because they're not willing to repent then seek another congregation anyway that's enough for me you know I always get carried away when I start talking about Jehovah
