Pope Francis says: There Is No Hell; Adam & Eve Not Real

One man who is out to open many old “secrets” 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 now being set aside by the Pope who was recently named The Man of The Year by TIME Magazine.

Pope Francis 1 There Is No Hell Fire; Adam & Eve Not Real – Pope Francis Exposes

In his latest revelations, Pope Francis said:

“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.

I thought all of us were bright enough to know it's satire but I guess not.

I doubt this is real. Although few years back they said there was no purgatory . Either way the source seems sketchy

Well, he's right, It is the same God. 

Our pastor told the kids a long time ago that Adam and Eve was a story used to illustrate a point, that it is a beautiful story but not to be taken literally. 

I think the image of a hell where people "burn for eternity" was more aligned with the hell and brimstone fire preachers, not so much those who thought of God as our father. Idk. Many have said hell is actually our time on earth. To be honest, somedays when I read the news, I contemplate that they very well may be correct.

Haha! This has been circulating since late 2013...
The Diversity Chronicle wrote it as a spoof article.

The Pope never said these things and there is no Third Vatican Council. LOL!

I don't know who "they" is, but the teachings on purgatory are still there.

It's a fake.  He speaks of hell, it exists.  And Adam and Eve and all of Genesis is a beautiful poem.  It is not literal.  But, if you want to believe it's real.  That's ok too. 

Catholics do not believe in a literal interpretation of the bible, except for a few cases.
