Pope declares that hell is a myth and stands at odds with the concept of a loving God

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

POPE Francis has started another fierce debate within the Catholic Church by stating that the concept of a burning hell where people burn eternally cannot be Christian as it goes against the concept of a loving and passionate God.

 

Over recent months, Pope Francis has been speaking a lot about how Christianity should be loving and caring, challenging a lot of the orthodox views held by the church establishment. Only last week, he challenged weapons manufacturers who claim they are Christians, saying that their work clashed with their faith and as such they cannot call themselves Christian.

 

Recently named Man of The Year by Time Magazine, Pope Francis has sparked off another debate with controversial remarks at the Third Vatican Council that just held. In what was the largest and most important Catholic gathering of priests since the Second Vatican Council in 1962, Pope Francis also challenged the concept of Adam and Eve.

 

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 as this doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God.

 

“God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity and God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device and 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. He added that in the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful but it can no longer judge people today.

 

“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,” Pope Francis added.

Over 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. A few cardinals in the Catholic Church are against Pope Francis’ latest declarations that has split opinion within the faith.

      The Hell is on Earth , now .

      • DK

        Purgatory always has been the Earth, I am surprised by now it escaped your notice.

        • white cat

          The notion Purgatory is not in the Bible . I consider these two things the same .

          • maxxy

            ….white cat….purgatory…a place to “purge” your soul…leave it to the catholics to complicate…well….everything…..

            • white cat

              When a person gets punished , he/she understands what he/she did .

            • maxxy

              …;.oh you are so right…..but…like with all things, you gotta be open to the revelation.

            • Man

              yes because the mormons makes it way easier to go to heaven with their magic underwear than christians

            • maxxy

              ….I’ve read that judgment begins at the pulpit.

          • MikeSavage

            white cat;
            True that purgatory isn’t in the scriptures. Hell is described as the common grave of mankind, as is also Hades and Sheol. No burning hell of torment and torture existed in Christendom until Constantine interjected it into his state religion, the Roman Church in the fourth century. He was a pagan emperor, and was, in fact, head of ALL pagan religions of his day. He created the Roman Catholic Church. He created what is now the KJV and most other English translations. They’re a mix of pagan and Christian writings.

      • twodads

        agreed

            The King James version was never phony, it was a translation from Greek Catholic not Roman Catholic texts, an entirely different version for instance from the Greek Orthodox – Eastern Roman Empire until 1457 which has no book of revelations amongst other changes, or that of the Gnostics, Aryians or Egypt Copts. If nothing else it was a direct English translation of the ‘original’ Catholic bible which was written in Greek remaining still true to this Churches doctrine with no attempt to reference alternative valid scripture which would contradict beliefs held in the Netherlands or England at that time which was a ‘protest’ hence protestant against Church corruption and its Pharisee priests, altars, etc. all seen as non Christian and pagan. What was different between protestant and Catholic was the interpretation of the faith through doctrine which like modern Pharisee Judaism can skew and alter holy writ (Talmud) – as was seen at that time, to make the Bible read as an entirely different, if not false document leading to such beliefs as to sin is to bring about the coming of the Messiah therefore the entire population had to sin (Jews) or Purgatory is necessary to save souls from damnation therefore torture to gain confessions benefited the individual through salvation after death (Torquemada) . Protestants abandoned doctrine since this was a load of old unprovable humbug.

            Roman Catholics used a Latin version which is proven to be all but identical bar mistranslations caused by syntax.

            Of course this means it is as phony as the Catholic version, or as genuine. :roll:

            • maxxy

              …DK….Thank you. Good stuff.
              …right now I’m interested in discovering Talmudic influence in the Masonic writings and Rothschild’s family history.

      • Jack Shlitz

        This doesn’t even sound close. References? Footnotes? Citation? Come on! Maybe an alternate universe but seriously

      • qaneh-bosem honestyherb

        White Cat, yeah, wherever the evil spirits are allowed ground, their presence
        are portals to hell.

        Ok, now everyone sing ( warning, demons can’t handle this song, you know
        those demons that know about Y’shua, and those demons that reside in
        unbelievers, so beware_I warn this out of my great mercy :lol: )

        Here is the chorus:
        What can wash away my sins ?, NOTHING, but the Blood of Y’shua !

        Looking at the many comments below, wow, all the folks that aren’t aware of
        hell, or evil spirits_must be the mercy of God for them.
        Couldn’t really imagine the torment of Not knowing Father, Son, Holy Spirit,
        yet being aware of the existence of Hell, and why it exists.

        Here is the chorus again:
        What can wash away my sins ?, NOTHING, but the Blood of Y’shua !

        • white cat

          The evil spirits don’t fear any song . The power of Light in the name of Jesus can remove them .

          • qaneh-bosem honestyherb

            It’s the Blood of Y’shua they cannot tolerate
            knowing about, for what it has done to them.

      • qaneh-bosem honestyherb

        “Blessed are you, Simon, son of Jonah, for flesh and blood did not REVEAL it to you, but My Father in Heaven.

        And I also say to you that you are Peter ( gr. Petros- a rock),
        and on this rock ( Petra_ ‘massive’ Rock____
        upon this ‘massive’ foundational Rock of REVELATION of who Y’shua the Anointed One is )
        I will build My assembly,

        and the gates of Hades will not prevail against her. ”
        Matthew 16:18,19

        So, in the same spot of scripture that Catholics have missed it with the Rock and Rock issue,
        the pope has now in the same context denied that there is Hell_ following then that there are also no gates of Hell.

        And because Y’shua builds His people upon the continual revelation
        from Father in Heaven of who He, Y’shua the Anointed One is,
        and what His Light reveals about other things, e.g. Hell,
        Pope needs some REVELATION, rather than contenplation.

    • Busta Myth

      Adolf Hitler was named Man of The Year by Time Magazine in 1933, and that didn’t work out very well for 60 Million Plus dead people did it?

      And there is plenty of historical evidence now that says it was the Vatican that smuggled loads of the top Nazis out of Europe through the Vatican Ratlines after WW2 using red cross passports signed by Jesuit preists

      Nazis like Adolf Hitler, Eikmann, Mengele, Bormann and loads of others were helped to escape to Argentina with all their loot, they also went to Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and thousands more Nazis went to America in Project Paperclip

      Some of those Nazis went to work with Peron in Argentinas dirty wars

      Where’s the Morals in allowing and aiding numerous Nazi war criminal mass murderers escape ?

      • DK

        Only to the Church it was helping save lives, those of fellow Catholics from the Jews of the Khazarian Empire of America, Europe and the USSR, it knew full well what happened to white Russians from 1918 – 1945 and the Native population of the Americas. Cannon laws a funny thing, the majority of German Nazis would have confessed and paid penance, therefore repented.

        • maxxy

          …dk….History always renders its prose from the POV of the victor…the last man standing writes on the rock.

          • DK

            Yes true, but the Nazis were national socialists, Nazi is national Zionist an equivalent philosophy from the Ukraine espoused by Khazar Jews under the Tzardom, how it became attached to German ultra nationalists is one of the mysteries of propaganda. However the reason we are able to comment at all on history is because the Catholic church uses this media to attack the OWO and the NWO, and Visa Versa.

            • maxxy

              …DK…There has not been any ‘real’ Jews….blooded or otherwise in the modern state of Israel. Jesus Christ identified those who claimed to be Jews, but were not; as progeny of Cain. I believe the devil himself “fathered” Cain. Cains progeny brought us all the corrupt Religion, that has ever been alive here, ever…… Through the hostile take over of the Judaic faith, by the “Kenites”….who are the offspring of the devil himself. The Nazis are obviously into the ‘dark’ arts. And dedicated to the debasement of the remaining remnant of the Jewish people…whom they had been systematically exterminating since before the days Christ walked, on earth.
              Christians inherit the covenant, but also the ‘hatred’.

      • JimmyBitch

        Busta Myth,

        Preach on.

        Detroit peaked in 1950. Detroit was known as “The Arsenal of Democracy” back then.

        I say, Detroit fell so low after WW2 (1950) because God cursed Detroit for the death machines they manufactured there.

        • AllRoadsLead2NWO

          Detroit went to hell- because of NAZI (national socialist) democrats here in this country- just like all of the other cities the democrats have destroyed. Then the big 3 go beat out by other people making much better cars when detroit started building junk in the mid 70′s.

    • maxxy

      ….What is this earth age all about? For God to come to his senses and begin to realize that we humans have got to have it our way, no matter what he says about it? Let’s insist that God’s will be changed to adopt an entirely new “human” ~gender( :?: )…..well, let’s see if we have any ‘leverage’. We can tell the Lord we’ll boycott…..He’s been getting <minimum, from us for a looong time. We can threaten his faithful with death and discrimination…..and that does work for the "Sunday go to meetin'" type, of Christians out there. The 'people' running the 'meetin', already have their orders….so the "New Order" of things will transition more smoothly.
      In the long run, it won't play…..means death. How much, where and how……who knows.

      • Saber

        Here’s a clue… ever hear of Pre-Adamic Civilizations?

    • truthlovingsoul

      when we accept the fact that the jews have long ago infiltrated and taken over the vatican, these ‘beliefs’ come clear as the exact same beliefs jews have about heaven and hell.

      this is why the relatively new term ‘judeo-christianity’. the two have zero in common and to say it, to me, it sounds like an oxymoron.

      personally i don’t feel there is a hell or a heaven, just an afterlife. when we die, life begins.

      • maxxy

        truthlovinsoul…i’ve been wondrin’ about your “beliefs”, for a while now…we know about you, two things for sure….1. You are NOT a Christian….at least not in the scripture. 2. You have erroneous answers to the questions of “who are Jews”….who are “the” Jews, “Why” are the JEWS….and so on. When it comes to these “Jew” questions, your biases and preconceived ideas, prevent you from letting go of the lexicon, and stopping your opinion about “the JEWS”, from coloring everything you say.
        The very people you excoriate were /, are proven to NOT be Jews, by Jesus himself….He called them “liars”. The offspring of the first murderer, Cain. They are KENITES. Not Jews.

        • DK

          What we call the Jews are the population of Palestine who converted to Isalm under the Caliphate, the current version are Khazarian converts from 750 AD and Jesus or Iesus never called the Jews liars, it was revelation 3.9 and John.

          • maxxy

            Dk…So we are talking about a completely different group of people here…..
            So lets not accept the gospel, and accept google history….screw that.

            • DK

              @ Maxxy,

              Only about 5% of blood samples of Modern Israelis have Semite backgrounds which is a precursor to being descended from Lot or Abraham and a prerequisite for being Hebrew which is the correct name. Jews were 2/13 ths of the tribes who lived in the South and better known as Judea. They are still there, but a tiny fraction of the population and they should be called Judean, not Jews.

          • HereAmI

            “… Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it….”
            Seems pretty straightforward to me.
            The jews do the lusts of their father, one of which is lying.

            • Damien

              But but but I THOUGHT you were a Joo Moishe! You have let me down for the last time GayTheist!

          • AllRoadsLead2NWO

            Jesus was a jew, and moses and all of the disciples. The ‘god of israel’ prefers jews among everyone else. Gee, what a great god- who is jealous of all other gods. Remember kids your god plays favorites but you better not.
            Deuteronomy 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
            exodus
            34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
            34:23 Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the LORD God, the God of Israel.

    • caligula606

      So now the post-modern church has decided that global warming is real (against scientific evidence against it), 4000+ years of actions called sin is not sin, all religions are sort-of equal, we’re all one happy family of beheading, Christian-raping, child molesting, Sodomite-accepting homogenous, unnatural-affection loving, accepting people. Rubbish!
      Well, the God I read of is also a God of judgment. Remember reading about Sodom and Gomorrah, not one upright person in the cities, mired in SIN and iniquity. God whacked them all with fire and brimstone.
      Well, for a communistically-inclined New World Order it makes perfect sense. One religion to bind them all! And the new value-free, fascistic, Green-sustainable religion looks like being worse than any medieval theocracy.
      So, folks, for the real Biblical God read the Bible for yourself. Read Daniel and Revelation, work it out for yourself. Hell is real, we’re getting a foretaste of it now, with evil and corruption and its consequences everywhere apparent.
      Maybe better to go back to where Christianity started, people reading scripture and praying in their own homes.

      • ElOregonian

        Hell was never meant for man. It was established for satan and his fallen angels. But man, in his rebellion to God, not wanting anything to do with God, desiring to be separated from God.

        Well, since God is the Creator, all things are His so if you want separation from God then hell was established for those seeking separation. God is love. So you will go to a place that is the opposite of love, hate… hell is hate.
        God is forgiving… the opposite of forgiving is condemning… hell is condemning.
        God is Truth… the opposite of truth is lies… hell is filled with lies.
        God is Light… the opposite of light is darkness… hell is filled in darkness.

        God had wanted to fellowship with man. He walked in the Garden of Eden in the cool of the day with Adam. But Adam and Eve listened to satan instead and hid from God. If we choose anything other than God then we must be separated from Him, to be separated from God; there is only hell in the outer darkness.

        God does not put you in hell. People who rebel against God put themselves there. You will be be judged by the measure you are given in understanding Him. Creation of nature by itself testifies that a Creator was involved in the intelligent design of our planet specifically, and the entire universe as a whole.

        • TimU2Cool

          God does not put you on hell? God created hell.

      • white cat

        There is an opinion , that if a person repents his punishment can be postponed . Once he/she fails again , they re gonna pay for both . We are speaking about really bad crimes/sins .

        • maxxy

          ….Jesus said to forgive 7 times 70 times…..means he will forgive 7 times 70 times….He really wants you to come clean, and BE with him…..Take him up on it…..When you are ‘forgiven’ your sins are erased….not postponed.

          • white cat

            Recall the parable , where a greedy man was first forgiven and then punished .

            • MikeSavage

              White Cat;
              The scriptures say that even though forgiven, one needs to be disciplined. Forgiveness doesn’t forego discipline.

          • MikeSavage

            Maxxy;
            Those particular scriptures say to forgive your “brother” seven times seventy. Annointed brothers. It doesn’t refer to God’s forgiveness, but He will forgive if one asks for it in Jesus’ name and repents.

        • MikeSavage

          White Cat;
          God’s word says that when one asks for forgiveness in the name of Jesus and repents, God remembers those sins NO MORE. Forgotten, never to be brought up again. So that opinion isn’t accurate according to scripture.

    • Mark

      A demon wanting to preach love … this pope sucks… :mad:

      • MikeSavage

        The pope probably does that too. He is guilty of murder, Satan worship, politics, lying, teaching things about God that are at odds with what God teaches about Himself, and on and on and on. The pope is a servant of Satan, not God.

    • Jango

      Well, he is right and he is wrong. This is what the Bible teaches, which he made NO reference to what so ever. According to the Bible, hell is a resting place for the dead while they await either the resurrection or the second death. It is NOT a place of punishment. The resurrection is when all believers will be raised and given eternal life. The second death is when all unbelievers are made alive and have their day in court after which they are cast into the lake of fire where they perish just like John 3:16 and many other scriptures say they will. So…if you want eternal life, ask Jesus to forgive your sins and be your Lord and Savior. If you don’t want to spend eternity with God, then live any way you want to and in the end you will be cast into the lake of fire where you will almost instantly be destroyed. Not that bad a deal….no eternal punishment, you just exist no more. Then again, why would anyone who doesn’t want to have anything to do with God want to go to heaven anyway right? If you want to see the scriptures that back this up go to ItsHisStory.com. God Bless.

      • maxxy

        A confusion between ‘paradise’ and heaven. Paradise…a holding place for the souls of men, awaiting judgment……Heaven…. a place that IS God’s place…..doesn’t even exist (for us), till the end of the Lord’s day…..nor does hell, for that matter. God bless you, right back…..Jango.

        • MikeSavage

          Maxxy;
          The paradise spoken of in the scriptures is NOT heaven, it is Earth after it is once again made into the paradise that God originally intended it to be, before Satan brought religion (false teachings about God) to Eve in the garden. Soul means life, life and soul are synonyms. A soul isn’t some mysterious part of us that exists after we die. The scriptures clearly state that we don’t havfe an immortal soul. In fact, God went to great lengths to dispel the pagan belief of an immortal soul that was rampant when Jesus was alive, and is even more rampant now that the pagan emperor Constantine first created the Roman Church, from which all other sects of Christianity proceeded.

    • a LIGHT in the DARKNESS.....

      OMG ! the pope MAKING SENSE ?

    • Raelynne

      This pope sure have been is doing a lot of back peddling lately, one would think retribution was coming his way. However I’ve always believed hell was a creation to scare people into compliance with some religious dogma. Hell is on earth when it’s ruled by troglodytes who don’t mind polluting somebody’s land (and water) to take others resources. Hell is on earth when less than one percent of the entire population owns everything. Hell is on earth when nature provides enough for all to exist but a cabal of people says otherwise. The pope may think he’s resolving the long and sorted history of Christianity (with emphasis on the Catholic Church) in causing extreme misery and death to make more Christians followers but he couldn’t be more wrong.

    • Cynical Catholic Jew

      God is a “Jealous” GOD… God is an “ANGRY” GOD… God is a “Vengeful” GOD! Where……. does it say, God is a “loving GOD”? Read your BIBLE… Stop listening to false prophecy, spoken by false prophets. Jesus is the savior from our Angry, Jealous and vengeful GOD. Jesus is Love and the only way to salvation. THAT… is Ancient Catholic Church Doctrine.

      • HereAmI

        The Lord Jesus Christ IS that jealous, angry God Who made Himself known to the jews in the OT.
        YHVH means “Behold the hand, Behold the nail.”
        But when He was born in Bethlehem, He came to die for us so that our sins would not be accounted to us on the Day of Judgement. The Law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
        He gave Himself, “a ransom for all”. All means, well, all.
        “And He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”
        When He said, “It is finished”, He meant exactly that.
        He took the punishment, He paid the price, He received the glory.
        He paid a debt that He did not owe, because we owed a debt that we could not pay.
        Glory be to His holy Name for evermore.
        Those who, from the foundation of the world, choose to reject Him, will simply be painlessly terminated, following their acceptance of the sentence at Judgement.
        “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return unto God Who gave it”.
        “His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth, in that very day, his thoughts perish”.
        “The living know that they shall die, but the dead know not anything.”
        ( Which rather flies in the face of the contributor who thinks that the righteous dead are in paradise. )
        God’s great Purpose is not to reveal a people to spend an eternity in torment, but to reveal a people who will form the Bride of His beloved Son.

        • maxxy

          Hereami……Your synopsis is dead on…..

        • MikeSavage

          HereAmI;
          No, Jesus IS NOT GOD. He is God’s only begotten son. God’s first creation. The pagan concept of a trinity was pushed into Christendom in 325 c.e. by Constantine. You are believing a pagan emperor who is long dead, rather than believing what the scriptures very clearly teach. Why is that?

    • Judge Roy Bean

      Hell is the grave, and death and hell are cast into the lake of fire, the 2nd death, no more remembrance by either party.

      • MikeSavage

      Well it seems he finally got one thing right. Although it leaves one to wonder why.

      23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi, [London: R. Washbourne, 1882], pp. 248-250

      Act bravely, my Brethren; take courage, and trust in the Lord. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase.

      The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death.

      Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.

      There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God.

      Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.

      Those who preserve their fervour and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head [Jesus Christ], these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish [physically] rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy.

      Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.

      What the Pope ain’t telling you is that you are living in hell right now.

      But he is right you do not have eternal life in HELL. YOU DIE in hell. Eternal life is a gift to those will enter the Rule of God.

      Those that sin and without God DIE and do not have eternal life now and in the world to come.

    • Andoron

      God is pure and Holy. The moment you deny the reality of Hell you turn God into a corrupt and compromising God that does not visit justice on ungodly acts. It destroys the very reason why Jesus came down and died for the sins of mankind, it turns the cross into a meaningless act. God freely offers salvation to all who believes the gospel and upon Jesus Christ. Those who reject this, die in their sins. The bible teaches the wages of sin is death. God being pure and Holy, cannot allow sin into his undefiled kingdom.
      God does not desire anyone to end up in Hell; however, if you reject Gods only provision for redemption and forgiveness of sin provided by His only Son. You will be facing a very angry God and rightly so. 1. You have spurned His offer of grace, mercy, and His great love who spared not His only son to redeem you. 2. You are now in an eternally corrupt state, defiled, there is nowhere else for you to go but Hell. The Pope only shows he is NOT a believer in God, but a believer in his own vain imaginations of what he thinks God should be.

        ” 1. You have spurned His offer of grace, mercy, and His great love who spared not His only son to redeem you”

        Sorry- your god of israel had a lot more ‘sons’ than jesus. Did you skip the first book where the ‘sons of god’ came down and found the women of earth attractive and banged them and ‘created’ your giants and your goliath? yeah- those others ‘sons of god’. Now what about all of those ‘other gods’ that your ‘god of israel’ is so jealous of and why if he is so ‘almighty’ is he so damn insecure and jealous?

      Hell means grave in Hebrew. God told Adam when he dies he would go back to the earth he came from. There is No Trinity either. In Revelations it said that that all this would happen. I suggest that people get out of all these false religion. Read the Bible with friends to get closer to God. That is what God wants, for us to spread his word , to follow in the steps of His son, Jesus, & to learn about Him.

      Of course the Pope is saying such things, the complete opposite of it’s historical self, because it’s dying the death from it’s elitism and draconian barbarianisms. It has to change with the times and evolve with our evolving morality, or go the way of all such entities that can’t adapt, ie go extinct. That’s exactly why they voted him in, to stop the rot and the church from destruction after Ratzinger resigned from shame of his enabling pedophiles within church, by hiding their crimes and moving them on to fresh pastures. Ratzinger was also convicted of murder via the peoples court, the same court that judged the Nazi war crimes.

    • TuffENuff

      This is so transparent. Pope Francis wants to lead the world toward one global religion, the New Religious Order, with the “new and improved” kinder Catholic Church as its head. All that stuff they made up about hell and wrote in the Bible was just, well, a mistake! Think of the money flooding in from six billion tortured souls! I’m sure the Buddhists, the Hindus and the Muslims will be totally on board with this, right? So when people say, “No, thanks,” how will they bring the reluctant flock into the fold? Inquisition Redux? The pope is going to have to figure out how to stop the genocidal population controls being put in place or his flock is going to be pretty small.

    • Deputy Dawg

      If this proclamation is true I find that amazing. The false Ascend to Heaven/ burn in Hell paradigm has been cornerstone to the harlots teachings. It totally distorts God’s plan for mankind and reduces Him to some heartless ogre.

      The concept of ascending to Heaven is birthed by confusion. Many who search for the mysteries of God lack His Spirit, an essential part of the equation. Without it, as I always say, you might as well be reading a Marvel Comic Book. Jesus once told those enlightened not to throw their pearls before swine. He spoke in parables excluding from spiritual wisdom all those but whom he specifically targeted. The lost sheep! See contrary to false doctrine Jesus did not come to save the world, this is Satan’s world. Jesus was created by God as our eternal Passover sacrifice. He replaced the Levitical requirement for animal sacrifice, and the mercy seat. Jesus, became the unblemished Lamb whose blood painted on our doorsteps (through believing) allows the wrath of God to pass over our sin without penalty. The the physical scenario during the final plague God imposed on Egypt led to the spiritual fulfillment through God’s perfect human son.

      Jesus Christ was the first of mortal men to be resurrected. He was the first of many sons to come. We too will be resurrected, we will not ascend to Heaven. Remember this was Lucifer’s ambition, this has nothing to do with God’s intention. Jesus gave us the Lord’s Prayer. In that communication with our Heavenly Father we ask God for the fulfillment of His plan. In the second verse it says, Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Jesus confirms in Matthew that no man ascends to the heavens that has not descended from the heavens, the Son of Man Jesus Christ. John in Revelation saw the New Jerusalem coming out of the heavens to earth, describing it in detail. Truth is the Bible speaks about the promise of resurrection over and over, while never cooperating with the notion of Heavenly occupation. The concept of dying and going to Heaven distorts and stands in direct conflict with God’s actual plan! His plan is far more miraculous than the fables that imaginative men have concocted.

      Hell is not as place but rather a symbol of permanent destruction. When something is burned up, it is gone forever, it cannot be restored. When scripture talks about fire and brimstone this is what is being conveyed. This is not an indication that a God of such exceptional love has some Dr Jekyll, Mr Hyde attributes we should concern ourselves with. God is perfect, precise and focused. He developed a plan to establish the family of Elohim and has not veered from it one single bit since it’s formulation before the creation of the heavens and earth.

      I wonder if now the harlot will confess the blasphemy in regard to the elements of Baal and sun worship practiced by her and all her offspring. Christmas, is supposedly the celebration of Christ’s birthday, however Jesus told us not to celebrate his birth but to celebrate his death because he becoming our Passover sacrifice is the beginning of life.
      Easter replaced God’s require Holy Day of Passover. The major problem really isn’t that it a derivative of paganism it is even worse than that.

      When prodded by the Pharisees to provide evidence he was in fact the Messiah, Jesus responded with one piece of proof. He told them that after his death he would remain in the tomb three days and nights just as Jonah had done in the belly of the wale. Now in the Bible’s Book of Genesis God Himself provides the proper definition of a day. God says it is from sun down to sun down, or eve to eve. If Jesus was crucified of Good Friday afternoon and risen by God early Sunday morning, this time frame falls far short of the time Jesus promised. This may seem like nothing but it purposely removes the only evidence Jesus provided.

      Sunday is the first day of the calendar week. Saturday is the last day or seventh day. The appointed time for weekly sabbath according to God, reiterated in the forth commandment mandates the seventh day sabbath. And no that requirement was not alleviated by Christ’s coming. Jesus said that not one jot, not one title would change in the Law, that the heaven and earth would pass first. That revelation should bag the issue. Embracing the truth in doctrine acknowledging that the earth shall abidith forever and man shall reside upon it is going to be a bitter pill for Christendom to swallow!

      The old adage “it is far simpler to con a person then it is to later convince them they have been suckered” will certainly apply. If you fall into this group I suggest as someone who loves and cares about your salvation you begin with repenting for your sins through our Passover and high priest, this of course should include “idolatry” for obvious reasons. The false depictions of God’ His Son and His plan are exactly that. The image you’ve been worshiping is not that of the One True and Eternal God Yahweh, but instead one of man’s own making!

        he wasn’t the first son- did any of you people read the first book? Or just the book of jesus- nt? Did you all forget when the ‘sons of god’ came down and found the women of earth attractive and banged them and created your giants and goliath? I don’t think anybody here read anything- if they did they read what the wanted to read. Who are all of these other gods that your ‘god of israel’ is so jealous of and why does he prefer jews above everyone else? A jealous, insecure god that plays favorites- that is this ‘god of israel’. pretty poor virtues for an supposed ‘almighty god of israel’ if this god was so almighty- he wouldn’t be jealous and insecure about any other ‘gods’ and he certainly wouldn’t play favorites.

      Hurrah for the Pope. At last someone tries to bring all religions under one umbrella of one God instead of division for one little difference in dogma. Preaching of “hell” is what causes many to leave Christianity. Many take the Biblical teachings literally and I say to each their own. But the Bible is so full of interpreted stories to take it literally one time and not the next is impossible. Either it’s all true or it’s all the interpretation of the writers. Which is it? Obviously the Pope prefers the latter.

      The word Hell in the Bible

      The word “hell” is found 54 times in the King James Bible. It is translated from several different words with various meanings as indicated below:

      In the Old Testament:
      31 times from the Hebrew “Sheol,” which means “the grave”

      In the New Testament:
      10 times from the Greek “Hades,” which means “the grave”
      12 times from the Greek “Gehenna,” which means “a place of burning”
      1 time from the Greek “Tartarus,” which means “a place of darkness”

      “Tartarus” is used once, in 2 Peter 2:4, and means “a place of darkness or restraint.” “Tartarus” is where Satan and his demons reside now. It isn’t a place of punishment or flames.

      “Gehenna” means a place of fire, brimstone, and punishment (see Matthew 5:29-30, described in Matthew 13:40-42 and 2 Peter 3:7.) Note these flames are still in the future at the end of the world.

      “Hades” means “the grave” (Acts 2:31; 1 Corinthians 15:55; Revelation 20:14). The body of Jesus rested there and His saints are resting there now awaiting the resurrection.

      The Greek word “Hades” is translated as “Hell” in many English Bibles such as the King James Version. In Revelation 6:8, the King James Version refers to “Death and Hell.” It does the same in Revelation 20:14. Yet some English Bibles use the word “Hades” itself, such as the New International Version, which translates both Revelation 6:8 and 20:14 as “Death, and Hades.” Now here is the point; In Revelation 20:14 “Hades” is eventually “cast into the lake of fire.” So as you can therefore see, “Hades” itself is not a fiery place, but is cast into “the lake of fire.”

      So Biblically speaking, Hades means the grave. This is easy to prove from 1 Corinthians 15:55, which in the King James Version states, “O death, where is thy sting? O grave [Hades], where is thy victory?” If you look in the Strong’s dictionary, you will find that the Greek word here translated “grave” is “Hades.” By looking at the context, it is obvious that it means “the grave” because it is God’s saints who rise out of “Hades” when Jesus Christ returns. See 1 Corinthians 15:50-55. Therefore, “Hades” cannot mean a place of burning, for who can imagine God’s people writhing in flames as they await the resurrection? That would be absolutely ludicrous! Additional proof this word means “the grave” is the fact that “Hades” was the place Christ’s body rested right after His death. Acts 2:31 reads, “His [Christ’s] soul was not left in hell [Hades] neither [did] his flesh see corruption.

      Hell Fire Is Real

      Matthew 13:42 Jesus Christ said the lost will finally be cast “into a furnace of fire.”
      Matthew 3:12 John the Baptist said the lost will end up in “unquenchable fire.”
      Punishment for Sin and “Hell” Is Future – Not Now

      Matthew 13:40 “As the weeds are gathered and burned in the fire, so will it be at the end of this world.”
      Matthew 25:41 Jesus Christ sends the lost into the fire after His Second Coming.
      2 Peter 2:9 God will “reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.”
      Revelation 20:11-13 The day of judgment occurs at the end of the 1000 years.
      Revelation 20:5a, 13-15 The “lake of fire” occurs at the end of the 1000 years.
      The Final Hell Fire Will Be On Planet Earth

      2 Peter 3:7 “The heavens and the earth which are now … are reserved unto fire.”
      2 Peter 3:10 “The earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”
      Revelation 20:8-9 At the end of the 1000 years, “They [the lost] went up on the breadth of the earth … and fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.”
      Hell Will Totally Destroy All the Wicked, Even Satan!

      Psalms 37:20 “The wicked shall perish … they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.”
      Psalms 37:38 “Transgressors will be destroyed together.”
      Ezekiel 28:15, 18-19 Even Satan will become “ashes” on the “earth” as a result of the fire.
      Malachi 4:1, 3 The “day cometh” when the lost “burn up” and become “ashes.”
      John 3:16 Those who are lost will “perish.”
      Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is “death,” not eternal life burning in hell.
      Matthew 3:12 “Unquenchable fire” will totally “burn up” the wicked.
      Matthew 10:28 “Fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
      Revelation 21:8; 20:14 “The lake of fire … is the second death.”
      Even The Lake of Fire Will “Pass Away”

      Revelation 20:7-9 At the end of the 1000 years, the lost are “the earth.”
      Revelation 20:9 God’s fire falls on them, and they are “devoured.”
      Revelation 20:14-15 The earth becomes one big “lake of fire” as God purifies it from sin. The lost suffer the “second death” in that lake.
      Revelation 21:1 Then there is a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and first earth (where the lake of fire was) has passed away.
      Revelation 21:4 In the New Earth, there will be no more pain, suffering, sorrow, or death.

      Note: If the lake of fire burned forever, there would always be pain and sorrow somewhere in the universe and Revelation 21:4 could never come true. But it is true. Sin will be gone forever and pain will cease to exist throughout God’s entire universe!

        So let me get this strait, you are saying that hell is the grave? I don’t want to leave a false impression I agree wholeheartedly if that’s the case! GOD HAS CERTAINLY OPENED YOUR MIND. What has me baffled though is, and please correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t you advocate the ascend to heaven falsity? The two customarily are adopted as a package deal!

        The reason for my response however has nothing to do with any lingering doctrinal confusion. I hope to save you time, nothing more! What I would like to share is that although it is commendable that you provide so many scriptures as evidence, it has been my experience it takes a willing eye to see and an open ear to ear. Not that good solid evidence is always better in quantity when proving a point, but fact is, you cannot give what is not yours to give. God does the calling. Until God has called and opened people’s mind Jesus Christ could sit on their lap and they wouldn’t recognize him. Man cannot just read scripture, we have no such authority. God’s Holy Spirit must unlock it’s mysteries for us.

        My point is simple, the food, if I read your response right was prepared deliciously. Next time bro it isn’t necessary to waste a bunch of time providing a huge meal when so few will be eating of it. The physical dialog you provide is one thing, knock yourself out. I too love to gab, but the spiritual will only be understood by those with God’s Spirit. With the called a few scriptures would suffice. Save your time for learning God’s Word and your energy for good praying and good works.

          No we go no where when we die but the grave.

          So…where do we go when we die?

          Psalms 13:3 Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

          The Bible refers to death as sleep. During this dreamless sleep, “his thoughts perish,” so, is it possible to affect the lives of others or carry on normal day to day activities in normal sleep? I think not. In the book of John we find a situation where Jesus Himself refers to the dead as being asleep.

          John 11:11-14 …Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

          The disciples thought when Jesus said Lazarus was sleeping that he would be ok. So Jesus had to plainly say “Lazarus is dead.” Before going on, I must interject as to the main reason Jesus calls death “sleep” here. It is because He knows that everyone will awaken one day out of death as we awaken each morning from sleep. Some will awaken to receive eternal life, and others will awaken to be destroyed in eternal damnation.

          John 5:28-29, “Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”

          Getting back to Lazarus we discover that a few verses later we realize how long Lazarus would have been sleeping the sleep of death if Jesus had not raised him from the dead later on in verse 43.

          John 11:23,24 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

          Martha, the sister of Lazarus understood the biblical truth about the state of the dead. She knew Lazarus wasn’t going to awaken until the last day when Jesus splits that eastern sky at His second coming. The book of Job also mentions the length of sleep for the dead.

          Job 14:12 So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep.

          Notice the word till in that verse. This means the dead will not, or cannot awaken until the last day as Martha calls it in the previous verse shared.

          My Favorite verse on this subject…. 1Corinthians 15:20-23 But now is Christ risen from the dead, [and] become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man [came] death, by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

          According to this verse, the dead in Christ will remain in their graves awaiting the order of resurrection. What is that order you ask? Jesus is the “firstfruits of them that slept” And then those that are believers in Jesus will “be made alive”. But when will they be made alive? According to the Bible, they will have to be made alive in the order that the Lord set up. Jesus, the “firstfruits” and then those that are His followers, “at His coming” …Rather blunt is it not?

            Here’s my contribution; The best example I can make is that your life, memory and experiences, all that makes who you are is stored by God once you die and are returned to the earth in a similar fashion to how your computer data is stored on a flash-drive. Without being plugged into the computer or God’s Spirit sustaining it, it’s no longer accessible to the dust you’ve become, or anyone else for that matter. The essence of the you that once existed when you were alive no longer exists unless resurrected unto life. Without resurrection that data remains absolutely useless. It is as dead as you are! The dead are conscious of nothing.

      Hell is second death..Get it DEATH.NO BURING FOREVER

      • MikeSavage

        Tim U2Cool;
        Hell is actually the common grave of mankind. There is a metaphorical reference to total permanent destruction in the scriptures, it’s gehenna, which refers metaphorically to the Valley of Hinnom. It was just outside Jerusalem and was used as a constantly burning trash dump where sulphur was poured on it to keep it burning so that anything thrown there was totally burnt to ash. Another reference to it is “lake of fire” and “lake of sulphur and fire”. They both refer to the same trash dump, but mean total permanent destruction. No resurrection to a paradise Earth after Armageddon.

      This article is nutty lies from beginning to end. Look at its author’s face — looks like he’s out to lunch. Psychotropic drug induced brain damage maybe? Something seems to be wrong. Nobody talks about the most excellent Vicar of Christ this way unless they either want to go to hell or are loopy in the head.

    • True Story

      To think that the world considers Rome and it’s wicked popes to be the official representation of Christianity and divinely established authority as if it were Jesus himself sickens me. We should expect nothing less than the darkest heresy from Jorge Bergoglio now known as Francis, the first, (and likely last), Jesuit pope of Rome. Not just a Jesuit though, but a High Jesuit. Google the oath they take, it’s disgusting in it’s cruelty. Absolute obedience to their Superior General and supposedly the pope despite assassinating them as needed. To them all crimes are forgiven, the ends justify the means in service to the furtherance of absolute temporal and spiritual dominion. Freedom of conscience is anathema to them. Anyone that’s unfamiliar with the history of the Jesuit Order, aka Society of Jesus, founded by Ignatius Loyola in 1540 ought to educate themselves quickly. The papal commission of Pope Paul III establishing the society was Romes answer to the Protestant Reformation. As a result literally hundreds of millions have perished. Many of them pulled apart on racks, beheaded, disemboweled, burnt, buried, blown to bits, and so forth following the earlier years of the Inquisition known now as the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. Many more were killed in stage managed wars, revolutions, and at the hands of their own governments. Examples of these are the French and Bolshevik Revolutions as well as the 30 years war and it’s continuation, a second 30 years war more commonly known as WWI and WWII, starting in 1914 and ending in 1945. I could go on even more but that ought to suffice for now.

      Well, it seems that the pope finally realized that the pagan belief in a burning hell of torment is pagan and fictitious, but the other things he’s said here aren’t correct. He did, however, say that God is a God of love, and that is true. The Catholic church was begun by a pagan emperor and he mixed pagan and Christian writings and beliefs, icons, idols, rituals, and traditions, and came up with the Roman Church. About 70 years later it was renamed the Roman Catholic Church. It’s mostly pagan. Remember, that in the scriptures, God has said through His prophets that touching ANYTHING pagan (unclean) is to choose Satan over God. Whether one realizes these things or not isn’t of any consequence either. One is supposed to research and study God’s word daily to see if what one is told is correct or not. God’s words, not mine. It’s sort of like the laws of man. Not knowing a law is no excuse for breaking it. You break it, you’re guilty. With God, violating His commands, knowingly or unknowingly, the result is the same.

      This pope in particular is extremely anti-God and anti-scriptures. All popes have been lawbreakers and worshipers of Satan, but Francis has been convicted in Italian courts numerous times for infanticide performed during Satanic rituals. Many, many witnesses have testified in open court to these atrocities. Francis was also convicted in the mid 70′s of the deaths of 64 thousand children in South America. But, they have never been able to get him, as he remains in the Vatican, a sovereign country all it’s own. The scriptures are pretty clear that all “sects” are works of the flesh and are false religion. All religions are said to be Babylon the Great within the pages of Revelation to John, the last book of the Bible. Francis is the head of the largest such religion on the planet. I wouldn’t believe him if he said up is up and down is down.

      ALL RELIGIONS ARE FALSE AND SHOULD BE DESTROYED! WE ARE NOT IN THE END TIMES! THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE A RAPTURE! GOD OR JESUS IS NOT GOING TO SAVE ANYONE! THERE IS NO SATAN OR ANTICHRIST! THERE IS NO GOOD OR BAD! EVERYBODY GOES TO HEAVEN TO BE WITH GOD! DO AS YOU WILL, WITHOUT ANY FEAR OF ANY JUDGEMENT! THIS IS THE TRUTH! HANDLE IT!

      • MikeSavage

        The Watcher;
        Why do you contradict yourself while posting such lies? True, ALL religions are false, but they WILL be destroyed in the tribulation, and what’s left will be destroyed in the final battle. However, only the holy spirit annointed will ever see heaven. We would need to have an immortal soul to go to heaven, and the scriptures are clear that we don’t. The 144,000 are said, in the scriptures, to be transformed into spirit beings and then taken up into heaven. We aren’t spirit beings, and we don’t have an immortal soul, so no, everyone DOESN’T go to heaven. Going there would be a form of being saved and you said no one is going to be saved. Saved means protected in the tribulation and final battle. Very few will be so protected by God. All the rest of the 7.4 billion will be permanently destroyed. Gone forever. Not a trace of them left. You also said “without any fear of any judgement”. That’s not true either. Noah’s flood was a judgement, and so too will be the tribulation and final battle. So too will be “judgement day”, which is the first thousand years post armageddon. So, yes, all will be judged. You included for posting lies about God and His son.

They say that the holy spirit annointed first fruits, the 144,000 adopted sons of God are the only ones transformed into spirit beings and are taken to heaven to be with Jesus as his co-rulers over Earth post Armageddon.

      The Bible cannot be any plainer. Jesus said hell is an everlasting fire. It is a fire that is never quenched. The lake of fire is the second death. Everyone whose name is not written in the book of life will be thrown into the lake of fire, where they will be tormented day and night, day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year, decade by decade, century by century, millennium by millennium, forever and ever. Read it for yourself:

      “Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.”
      —Matthew 18:8

      43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
      44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
      45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
      46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
      47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
      48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
      —Mark 9:43-48

      22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.
      23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
      24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
      —Isaiah 66:22-24

      9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
      10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
      11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
      —Revelation 14:9-11

      10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

      11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

      12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

      13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

      14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

      15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

      —Revelation 20:10-15

      “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

      —Revelation 21:8

    • Michael Carrigan

      From the vision of Angelica Elizabeth Zambrano Mora. Hell is real. Be not deceived. Give your heart to Jesus now!

      Then the Lord took me to place where there was a very well-known man. Before now, I used to live as a double minded young Christian girl. I used to think that any person that died would go to Heaven; that those who celebrated mass, would also go to heaven, but I was wrong. When Pope John Paul II died, my friends and relatives would tell me that he had gone to heaven. All the news on TV, on Extra and many other places would say, “Pope John Paul II has died, may he rest in peace. He is now rejoicing with the Lord and his angels in heaven” and I believed all of it. But I was only fooling myself, because I saw him in Hell, being tormented by flames. I looked at his face, it was John Paul II! The Lord said to me, “Look, Daughter, that man that you see there, is Pope John Paul II. He is here in this place; he is being tormented because he did not repent.”

      But I asked, “Lord, why is he here? He used to preach at church.” Jesus replied, “Daughter, no fornicator, no idolater, no one who is greedy and no liar will inherit My Kingdom.”(Eph. 5:5) I replied, “Yes, I know that is true, but I want to know why he is here, because he used to preach to multitudes of people!” And Jesus responded, “Yes, Daughter, he may have said many things, but he would never speak the truth as it is. He never said the truth and they know the truth and although he knew the truth, he preferred money over preaching about salvation. He would not offer reality; would not say that hell is real and that heaven also exists; Daughter, now he is here in this place.”

      When I looked at this man, he had a large serpent with needles, wrapped around his throat, and he would try to take it off. I pleaded with Jesus, “Lord, help him!” The man would scream, “Help me, Lord; have mercy on me; take me out of this place; forgive me! I repent, Lord; I want to return to Earth, I want to go back to Earth to repent.” The Lord observed him and said to him, “You very well knew. You knew very well that this place was real…It’s too late; there is no other opportunity for you.”

      The Lord said, “Look, Daughter, I am going to show you the life of this man.” Jesus showed me a huge screen on which I could observe how this man offered mass many times to the multitudes. And how the people who were there were so idolatrous. Jesus said, “Look, Daughter, there are many idolaters in this place. Idolatry will not save, Daughter. I am the only One who saves, and outside of Me, no one saves. I love the sinner, but I hate sin, Daughter. Go and tell humanity that I love them and that they need to come to Me.”

      As the Lord was speaking, I began to see how this man received multitudes of coins and bills; money, all of which he would keep. He had so much money. I saw images of this man seated on a throne, but I was also able to see beyond that. While it’s true that these people do not get married, I can assure you, I’m not making this up, the Lord showed it to me, those people do sleep with nuns; with many women there! [1 example]

      The Lord showed me these people living in fornication, and the Word says that no fornicator will inherit His Kingdom. As I was watching all of this, the Lord told me, “Look Daughter, all of this which I am showing you is what goes on, what he lived and what keeps on happening among many people, among many priests and popes existing.” Then he told me, “Daughter, go and tell humanity that it’s time to turn to Me.”

      Hell is the absence of God. That is why life on Earth is so awful right now.

      • MikeSavage

        Dana;
        NO, hell is the common grave of mankind. Nothing more. Same as grave, hades, Sheol. No place of eternal torture and fire exists. It’s a pagan belief placed into Christendom by a pagan emperor in the fourth century. No first century Christians thought any different from hell being the grave.

          According to the Big Boys Bumper Fun Book of Christianity anyways. :roll:

          • MikeSavage

            Meidan;
            What book is that? No such “Big Boys Bumper Fun Book of Christianity” exists. The inspired word of God is no such book. It isn’t a book of Christendom, it is the book explaining “the one true faith”, and the coming Kingdom Government of Earth. It is a book explaining how to sanctify God’s personal name, Jehovah. So what adolescent childish immature drivel was that you were typing?

            • Damien

              So you actually think Jesus didn’t think Hell was important? In Pharisaic tradition Bell was for twelve months only after which one goes to heaven. It was a form of purgatory. But not with Jesus. To him it was forever (for the damned).

              But if your leadership absolutely insist that they are going to heaven….fine. :lol:

            • MikeSavage

              Meidan;
              Anything the Pharisees said or believed was probably tainted or completely false. Hell has always meant the common grave of mankind. To Jesus it was the common grave of mankind also. Only the annointed go to heaven, and only 144,000 are annointed in total, since Jesus was on Earth. Purgatory doesn’t exist, it’s a pagan Catholic thing. The concept of “the damned” is pagan also. Punishment, to God, is permanent death. Nothing more. What is this “your leadership” that you speak of? My leadership is Jesus and his Father, God the Almighty.

      • white cat

        Earth is so beautiful with all its life . We hope it will get rid of all evil .

        • MikeSavage

          White Cat;
          Yes, evil will be eliminated. However, that requires the elimination of almost all on Earth right now. In order for the righteous to inhabit the Earth, and no one else, those who aren’t righteous need to go. The righteous are the annointed 144,000 who will rule Earth from heaven with Jesus. Those who will be ruled are the associates of the remnant of the 144,000, and those whom they will teach post Armageddon. Those will also need to teach the resurrected ones to become righteous, and if they do they can live eternally. If they don’t they will be destroyed permanently. After this period, known as “judgement day”, only the righteous will inhabit the Earth and death will be destroyed, as will sorrow, ageing, sickness, and so on be destroyed. The Earth will be made into a paradise, no one will have to work for anyone else, and we will build and live in our own homes, grow our own food and enjoy our work forever. This means, though, that almost all of the 7.4 billion on Earth will have to be destroyed for turning their backs on God, and clinging to religion instead. Religion is said, in the scriptures, to be false, works of the flesh, and Babylon the Great. The whore of Babylon. Sad that so many reject God in favor of religions, but the prophecies do indicate this.

          • white cat

            As far as I remember , 144000 are those only from Israel . Also 1/3 should stay alive . Yet , visions are not the very truth . A lot of things are said figuratively.

            • MikeSavage

              White Cat;
              The 144,000 spoken of in Revelation are SPIRITUAL Israel, not physical Israel. They are the ones included in the new covenant that Jesus made the night before his death. The covenant that REPLACED the law covenant and forsook physical Israel as God’s chosen nation, for turning their back on God over, and over, and over again. God got tired of punishing Israel, and gave up on them and had Jesus initiate the new covenant. It is ONLY with spiritual Israel, the holy spirit annointed disciples and apostles, and all those holy spirit annointed afterward. The total number being of course, 144,000. They will co-rule with Jesus, and fight the final battle with him. They’re the only humans to see heaven, after they are “transformed” into spirit beings. Since the scriptures are very clear that we don’t have an immortal soul (that’s a pagan belief anyway), then God must transform them into the same spirit beings as Him, Jesus, and the angels. They’ll rule over the Earth where the great crowd, or great flock, will reside. They’re the ones who supported and associated with the annointed remnant, and the remnant are the ones to be “taken away into the clouds”. This is what religions falsely claim is a “rapture”. They’re dead wrong. They all think they’re annointed, but they are most certainly not. They think that if they’re baptized in the name of the Father, the son, and the holy spirit, that they are holy spirit annointed. They misunderstand much.

            • maxxy

              …savage….Every endtime prophecy should be read from a spiritual POV, or you’ll end up with the “religious”, stuck between heaven and earth. Not a good place to be. Kind of like Lot’s wife…taking one last, longing look…..

            • MikeSavage

              Maxxy;
              The only “point of view” one should use when reading, or rather studying scriptures, more specifically, prophecies, is to have no point of view. In order to have a religious point of view, one would have to be religious, which involves being part of a religion, and I am not. the scriptures all stand on their own merit. One must compare a scripture to all other scriptures to see if it’s harmonious. If it isn’t, you haven’t discerned the proper meaning.

      REPENT, no one is too big or too holy to escape the reality of hell……. just becaues you say you don’t believe something doesn’t make it not TRUTH……. nothing NOTHING changes TRUTH. TRUTH IS ETERNAL. Denying hell doesn’t make it go away!

      REPENT! THAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO AVOID THE DESERVED JUDGEMENT FOR LIVING IN SIN!

      JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR every one of us that will ACCEPT HIM AS LORD AND SAVIOR AND BELIEVE THAT HE DID THIS AND REPENT of sin and sinful living.

      ALL you have to DO IS BELIEVE UPON CHRIST JESUS AS SAVIOR!

    • Julie Bucker

      The Book of Mormon has teachings from ancient prophets in America (500 BC) and they understood the gospel so well. Please read it at lds.org. I myself believe that hell is real but I don’t understand the whole picture, because I know that God is a very merciful and loving God. The way I see it, you cannot receive what you cannot give. So if you are hateful to others, how would you be able to receive God’s love? You wouldn’t. You would have to have a place prepared where you could remain hateful to others. As you repent and grow in receiving God’s love for you, then you can give love to yourself and others, then you can inhabit a higher kingdom, hopefully one that is not in hell. God doesn’t care about us being in hell or not, He cares that we grow in love. Many NDE and visions I have read of hell show that there is no way out. But I have read and have friends who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who have had visions of hell and they always say there are angels trying to help people out of hell if they would only be humble enough to ‘look up’ and see them. Then they can progress. So hell isn’t really a final punishment, it is a temporary existence. That being said, I sure don’t want to have to go there when I die because it sounds horrible.
