POPE FRANCIS: ‘THERE IS NO HELL’
La Repubblica published Eugenio Scalfari’s interview with Pope Francis on March 28, 2018, which was titled, “The Pope: It is an honor to be called revolutionary.” (Il Papa: “È un onore essere chiamato rivoluzionario.”)
It has been reported that Eugenio Scalfari is a longtime friend of the Pope.
Key excerpts included in the article (interpreted by Rorate Caeli):
Scalfari: “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: “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.”
Are we shocked?
Even one of the Twelfth Century Archbishops, Saint Malachy, prophesied that this Pope, the 112th Pope, would bring the Catholic Church into apostasy.
The church actually went into apostasy long before the 112th Pope, who is Pope Francis, but we can certainly consider that this 112th Pope is a “revolutionary” from some of its basic tenets, which haven’t changed in centuries, until now.
The Vatican is frantic to smooth things over against the backlash and uproar of such quotes made by their Pope (gone rogue).
The Vatican published the following response:
“The Holy Father Francis recently received the founder of the newspaper La Repubblica in a private meeting on the occasion of Easter, without however giving him any interviews. What is reported by the author in today’s article [in La Repubblica] is the result of his reconstruction, in which the textual words pronounced by the Pope are not quoted. No quotation of the aforementioned article must therefore be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.”
Technically, the Vatican is denying that the Pope can be quoted, because it was not an official interview, but rather Scalfari’s rendition of a “private meeting;” therefore, Pope Francis shouldn’t be officially quoted.
In other words, they are skating around the truth with technicalities. Notice, they did not emphatically state that the Pope did not say there is no hell, just that he shouldn’t be quoted because the meeting was private.
It just so happens that Scalfari interviewed the Pope three years ago, on March 15, 2015, and he wrote basically the same thing, that the Pope denies the existence of hell.
The following are key excerpts from that meeting:
Scalfari: “What happens to that lost soul? Will it be punished? And how?”
Pope Francis: “There is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul. All the others will participate in the beatitude of living in the presence of the Father. The souls that are annihilated will not take part in that banquet; with the death of the body, their journey is finished.”
At that time, the Vatican promptly responded, again, stating that the meeting was not recorded, or published on the Vatican website, thus the Pope cannot officially be quoted. Notice, again, that they did not say emphatically state that the Pope did not say there is no hell.
Apparently, according to his longtime friend Scalfari, Pope Francis does not believe in hell. He made those statements not only once, but twice!
The Word of God tells us,
“Now the Spirit speaks expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits (fornicating spirits – like pedophile priests), doctrines of devils (doctrines that depart from Biblical truth – like the Catholic Church), speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry (like the Catholic Church) and commanding to abstain from meats (like the Catholic Church), which God has created to be received with thanksgiving of those who believe and know the truth” 1 Timothy 4:1-13.
The Catholic Church has a whole lineup of heresies and doctrines of devils. The fact that this Pope has stated he does not judge homosexuals, and that there is no hell, while the Word of God specifically rebukes homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:21-32) and states that hell exists (Mark 9:43-50; Revelation 20:12-15), places him and the Catholic Church among many other latter day heretics.
Finally, the Word of God warns everyone, even the Pope:
“I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book” Revelation 22:18-19.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
During the persecutions of Protestants by the Roman Catholics in the valleys of Piedmont, during the Seventeenth Century, a soldier, attempting to ravish a young woman named Susanna Gacquin, was pushed over a precipice by her, as she defended herself. His comrades, instead of admiring her virtue, fell upon her with their swords and cut her to pieces.

The Catholic Church has never issued an apology for the crimes committed during the Inquisition and the brutal torture and murders of Protestant Christians, who denounced papal authority, denied Purgatory, the selling of indulgences in sin, the worship of idols, and prayers to the saints and the Virgin Mary. Neither has any reparation been made to the heirs of the saints who suffered such vile persecutions from the Catholic Church. Protestants were brutally murdered by Catholics by way of burning them alive at the stake, flaying alive, hangings, cutting them to pieces, burying them alive, drowning, torturing them on the rack, whereby bones were broken and bodies ripped apart, beheading them, etc… The property and assets were seized of those heinously murdered by the Catholic Church from about the Twelfth Century through around the 1820s, not that long ago. The Vatican sits atop the blood of the saints. Revelation 18 describes her brutal end for heresies and having committed such abominable crimes.
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:4.
God is calling His sincere believers to come out of the Catholic abomination, before it’s too late!
