Here is an article about the latest from pope francis: http://www.independent.c...o-to-heaven-8810062.html


In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblica newspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences.

Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience.

“Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.”


While the article is interesting on it's own, the comments section is a gold mine. For instance, I learned that the 10 Commandments are of no importance, the only thing that matters is faith in jesus christ. That statement must be true because it got 26 likes BigGrin

Wow, the Pope knows everything about God and who he will, or will not forgive!

To speak so brazenly as if he knows all is giving everyone the wrong impression!

Perhaps he will also say the God will forgive all the Pedophiles and Gay's in his RC church because they are following their conscience?

Many Church going people who are misled, but nevertheless genuine may not be fogiven (not for me to say), let alone those who deliberately spurn the word of God and follow their own perverted conscience!

No man can tell you what God will do, but search for the answer in God's own word, then each person can decide what they will do with their lives! Nothing like the truth exists in the RC church!

Yes, I would trust the Pope only as far as I could throw him!

When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either quit being mistaken, or cease being honest!

I think you've kind of intuitively figured out for yourself that there are three possible destinies for one's soul, not just the two most religions talk about (eternal life, a.k.a. Heaven, and eternal separation, a.k.a. Hell). A soul could also be annihilated and cease to exist entirely and have neither eternal destiny. The eternal life is for those in Yahowah's Covenant Family. Eternal separation is for those who knowingly and on an ongoing basis mislead others away from the path to knowing Yahowah and engaging in His Covenant, at a minimum. Promoting on an ongoing basis religious schemes, political schemes, economic exploitation schemes, and militaristic schemes could be considered part of habitually misleading others away from God, or in addition to it. Yada has pointed out that this means many in the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church will be condemned to eternal separation, including most if not all Popes. Those who are neither part of Yahowah's Covenant Family, nor allied themselves with The Adversary, would simply cease to exist. So at least with regard to your own soul's destiny, it's not hard to figure out what God will (most likely) do.
