This is shocking, even for him.

If you’re a regular reader of our content here at LivingGospelDaily, you know we’re no fans of this current Pope.  In fact, as some prophets have recently declared, we do believe he may in fact be the False Prophet of Revelation.

Every time we post an article about this Pope, we’re so delighted to see that over 90% of you agree with us.  Simply put: this Pope is bad news.

Maybe 10% of the readers are die-hard Pope-lovers.  Full on, head-in-the-sand, Pope-lovers.  But even for those people, isn’t it getting a little hard to defend this guy?

The most recent case-in-point:  the Pope just declared “there is no Hell.”  Wow.  Really, Pontiff?  Shameful.

Now you don’t have to be a Bible scholar on the level of Chuck Missler to understand why this is a hugely heretical comment.  If there is no Hell, then we have two main problems:  (1) the Bible is in error and not trustworthy, because the Bible most certainly believes there is a Hell.  And (2) as Pastor Bill Johnson is famous for saying, if there is no Hell, then God was cruel to send his son Jesus to the Earth, to suffer and be killed as the ransom for the world.  There would be no need for a “savior” if that were the case.

In other words, this is not some minor doctrine that different denominations can reasonably debate.  This is about as foundational as it gets!

Here’s a summary of what Francis said, from TheCut:

In the midst of its holiest week of the year, the Catholic Church has been plunged into drama.

The controversy started when news broke that Pope Francis allegedly claimed that Hell doesn’t exist. Now, while the Pope is more liberalthan his predecessors and has previously upset hard-line traditionalists with his proclamations, this would be a radical (in many senses of the word) departure from Catholic doctrine.

There’s a lot going on here, so let’s unpack it.

What exactly did the Pope say?

The quote that began to circulate was in response to the question of where “bad souls” go when they died. Here it is:

“They are not punished. Those who repent obtain God’s forgiveness and take their place among the ranks of those who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot be forgiven disappear. A hell doesn’t exist, the disappearance of sinning souls exists.”

Well, it doesn’t get any more clear than that!

As noted by CNSNews, even the Catholic Catechism disagrees with this Pope!

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, ‘eternal fire.’ The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God, in whom alone man can possess the life and happiness for which he was created and for which he longs.” (1035)

The Catechism further states, “The affirmations of Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Church on the subject of hell are a call to the responsibility incumbent upon man to make use of his freedom in view of his eternal destiny. They are at the same time an urgent call to conversion: ‘Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.’

The Vatican was in full on scramble mode as it attempted to first “clarify” then “deny” the story.  From USA Today:

The Vatican on Thursday rebuked Eugenio Scalfari, 93, a well-known Italian journalist who is the founder of Italy’s La Repubblica newspaper.

When asked where “bad souls” end up, according to the article in Thursday’s La Repubblica, Francis reportedly said that those who repent can be forgiven, but those who don’t repent simply “disappear.”

And then came the four words heard ’round the world: “Hell does not exist,” the article quoted the pope as saying. “The disappearance of sinful souls exists.”

The Vatican issued a statement after the comments spread like wildfire on social media, saying the pope never granted the interview and the story was “the result of (the reporter’s) reconstruction,” not a “faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.”

Comments Welcome

So…what do you YOU make of this Pope?

Is this just another example of his heretical nature?

Or was he just “misquoted”?

    His face does not show the love of God but hatred of the Devil.

    It is fairly obvious you folks know little or nothing about papal speaking or attitude. No matter what any pope SAYS, he cannot change Church doctrine. The Bible teaches about hell, and Catholics believe there is one. Francis was not making a decree from the Chair of Peter, he was just talking. He has loose lips and is pretty old. You believe everything you hear from every old man?? I don’t!! Don’t be fools!!

    • Larry Bush

      While not being Catholic; it has always been my understanding that the Pope is infallible when it comes to doctrine. Regarding the old man thing, I at 79 like to tell people that you can always trust an older man.

    Don’t forget the Pope is a Socialist!

    I am Catholic. And this “pope” is a huge problem for The Church. Keep in mind that Pope Benedict XVI still lives and he lives inside the Vatican, wears papal white and is still called Pope “Emeritus” Benedict. This has never happened in the near 2000 year history of The Church. But none of this scandal changes the fact the Catholic Church IS the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church started by Christ Himself. ALL other Christian churches have heretical men as their founders.

    Fun fact, litteraly anything the Fun fact, litteraly anything the pope says about anything, according to Catholicism, is true no matter what. So when I see articles like this it helps me remember that Christians will only believe in a god that agrees with them. Point in case the over 2000 denominations of Christians all claiming that they are the real Christians and that all other Christians are mislead by the devil or lying. says about anything, according to Catholicism, is true no matter what.
