Pope Francis in a recent interview with his long time atheist friend stated that hell does not exist and that souls just disappear after death.

Scalfri says to the Pope, “Your Holiness, in our previous meeting you told me that our species will disappear in a certain moment and that God, still out of his creative force, will create new species. You have never spoken to me about the souls who died in sin and will go to hell to suffer it for eternity. You have however spoken to me of good souls, admitted to the contemplation of God. But what about bad souls? Where are they punished?”

Pope Francis says,  “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. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.” –

In yet another absurd twist of scripture Pope Francis, formerly Jorge Mario Bergoglio, allegedly made the claim that hell does not exist as is evidenced in the paragraph above. The interview was conducted by Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari the founder and former editor of Italian newspaper La Repubblica.

However, according to the Catholic News Agency, the Pope is claiming that the journalist is twisting Bergoglio’s words following a private meeting. The Vatican issued a statement to the news agency stating that the report ‘should not be considered an accurate depiction of Francis’ words, but the author’s own “reconstruction.”’ In addition, this is not the first time that such has occurred, in fact, in an interview in 2015, apparently the Italian paper claimed something similar after a private meeting with the Pope.

After the release of the alleged statement, and the Vatican’s denial of the Pope’s admission who do you believe? If proven that the Pope did, in fact, make such an admission, it would not be the first time that Pope Francis has challenged scripture, just recently the Pope showed a desire to change The Our Father prayer.

In addition, Pope Francis also recently established a feast day for mother Mary in spite of what scripture states. The Bible is very clear, that God is the author of Truth, and scripturally speaking, only God can establish feast days as he has done throughout history. Yet, Pope Francis, the man, acclaims to have the authority to establish such.

In scripture, there is no mother church, instead according to Christ’s own words, the Church is to be the Bride of Christ, yet Pope Francis and his cohorts at the Vatican are decreeing that “the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church,” should be inscribed in the Roman Calendar on the Monday after Pentecost and be celebrated every year in churches throughout the world. – Learn More.

What say you, does the Pope believe that Hell doesn’t exist?

The real issue in what he said is that “repentance” is not all that is needed. You MUST accept CHRIST as your savior AND repent.
