There is No Hell, because Pope Francis said so.  Right?

"No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of  the Gospel!" --Pope Francis

Someone help me out here. 

We all know that virtually every time Pope Francis says or writes something, all kinds of "experts" have to fall all over themselves with explanations and interpretations and contextualizations.  This is because he is seldom clear and concise, and in my estimation, seldom in accordance with all that has gone before.  Vagaries of language aside, many are troubled with all the recent emphasis on "reaching out to" and "accommodating" and "walking with" active practitioners of mortal sin. 

And, we are forced to admit, he has taught nothing officially binding that is erroneous on faith and morals.  That is not to say that none of it has been erroneous. 

But ... he's the Pope

Why should anyone need to carefully explain anything he says? 

If anyone on earth should not be vague, or clearly wrong, it is the Pope. 

Here's what's troubling me now:

"No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!" 

From the POST-SYNODAL APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION AMORIS LÆTITIA, Paragraph 297.

Which, of course, flies in the face of the Gospel. 

[41] Then he will say to those at his left hand, `Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;--Matt 25:41

[46] And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."--Mat 25:46

So you see my quandary. 

Please, someone, help me out here.

Comment: 

Vic, our beloved Pope is demonstrating his liberal mentality wherein their bottom line is appeasement and denial of reality. Additionally they do not wish harm to anyone even when there is behavior that is repugnant and or immoral. Additionally they do not advocate for a moral life that follows the Commandments. Rather they want the word of God out of everything to do with law and government as well as removal of the commandments from courtrooms.

Therefore punishment for any violations of God's. Law is unnecessary and likely will not happen from Francis' point of view consistent with his liberal supporters.

So peace be with as you go on with probing articles.

Bernard:

That's the problem; denial of reality is supposed to be a problem outside the Church, not inside.  Ultimate reality is precisely what Catholicism is all about. 

It is Atheist Lunacy that denies reality, not Catholicism.  We (or at least I) have always thought of the Anti-Christ as being someone from the political realm, not the religious.  In past history, people have thought that Stalin, or Hitler, or Mao might have been The, if not just One Of, the Anti-Christ(s). 

But maybe that's not the case.  In Blind Guides we talked about a possible Final Apostacy that may precede the Second Coming.  This was all new to me, and a shocking idea, if correct.  The Scriptural "Rebellion" that is to come will not necessarily be a political war, as was World War II, which many associated with the "Rebellion".  It will be an Apostasy

Apostasy can only happen inside the Church.  An apostate must be a Catholic before he can commit the sin of apostasy.  The "Rebellion" will be against Jesus Christ Himself, and His Gospel.  It will come from within the Church, if this interpretation of 2 Thes 2 is correct.  

Knowing that Culture = Religion + Politics, and seeing the systematic destruction of world culture on the political side of the street, I have been concentrating on politics, perhaps too much, through Breaking The Club and all the associated "Breaking" pages, because I thought that was where the core of the cultural problem was. 

But maybe the problem is really in religion.  In America, through the principle of Representative Government, Religion is supposed to drive Politics.  A religious, i.e., highly moral, citizenry would elect highly moral representatives who would legislate highly moral law. 

But the opposite it true; politics is driving religion, and politics is now almost totally secularized and religiously-cleansed.  Amoral, at the very least; flat out immoral at worst. 

The Church let that happen.  So did all the Protestant Churches.  Morality, taught and handed on by our religion, was supposed to instill and strengthen our morality, so that our morality would be represented in government and in law. 

Look around.  That ain't happening. 

Regards,

Vic

Papal Imperfection Pages.
While Popes enjoy the charism of Infallibility when teaching on faith and morals, as established in the unchanging Deposit of Faith, they remain human, and imperfect, as was Peter and the original Apostles.  Popes can err when not teaching on faith and morals, and whenever speaking on matters outside the Deposit of Faith.  Two of these areas, particularly troubling in these days, involve Papal favor shown to areas of Godless Marxist ideology, and to the belligerent, invasive, domineering and menacing false religion of Islam. 

Who will drain the Catholic Swamp, and how, exactly?  Trump is draining the Washington Swamp; what about the Catholic Swamp?  Our last perfectly capable Pope abdicated for apparent political reasons, certainly not health.  Was he Swamped?

Will Pope Francis become a Self Deposing Pope?  "The pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church."--Catholic Encyclopedia

Red Pope Francis and the KGB's Liberation Theology.  The Russian KGB developed "Liberation Theology" as another path to Global Revolution.  Pope Francis may be a victim of it, or, he may be a perpetrator of it.

Why Did Vatican II Ignore Communism?  The veil of mystery over the Council’s omitting any reference to Communism has gradually been lifted 

I must oppose the pope on globalism, but not on faith and morals.  Recent comments of the pope on globalism, calling for a world political authority, is absolutely the last thing the world needs.

The Smoke of Satan is in the Church in America; has it reached the Vatican too?  The Smoke of Satan conceals the true object of the Progressive Agenda.

Delusional Pope Francis, molding world culture into one undefinable hodgepodge.  Does the Pope want International Communism, or just a border-less, all inclusive, nonsensical, global non-culture?

The Religion Politics Nexus: If the Religion is not true, Politics become evil.  For Martin Luther, Politics drove Religion. For Pope Francis, Religion drives Politics. Or does it? 

Pope Francis just said WHAT? Excuse me?  Can anyone out there help me reconcile what Pope Francis just said with Catholic Revealed Truth? 

Marxists running the Vatican's Pontifical Academy of Social Science?  Died in the wool Marxists in the Vatican's P.A.S.S. No wonder Pope Francis favors the Socializing Frauds of "Sustainable Development", "Climate Change", etc.

Disorder and Confusion from the White House. And from the Vatican, too?  The growing disorder in Obama's America, and in Pope Francis' Catholic Church. 

Pope Francis receives an Open Letter calling for his Papal Resignation.  "Year of Mercy" begins with an Open Letter: An Urgent Appeal to Pope Francis to Either Change Course or Renounce the Petrine Office.

Globalist Pope Francis' Marxist Program to End All Sovereign Nations.  Our Globalist Pope leads the attack on all National Sovereignty to bring an end to all national borders in favor of Total Global Disorder, ostensibly for the good of the Planet and the Poor.

Looking more closely at Pope Francis' chosen Papal Pals.  If a critter walks like a duck, talks like a duck and is constantly seen in the company of other ducks, the logical conclusion is that he most probably is a duck.

Globalist Stupidassism in the Vatican.  Globalist Fraud after Hoax after Scam, all promoted in the Pontifical Academy of Science and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences "Workshop on Biological Extinction."

On the new (to me) heresy of Popalitry.  False belief that a Pope can do no wrong leads to Pope Worship.

Do we have a Diabolically Controlled Pope?  Every time he opens his mouth, he makes himself a fool. 

The Dubia Aftermath shows that Pope Francis still doesn't get it.  Non-response to the Dubia means a Warning; non-response to that means a second Warning, and finally, a non-Pope Council to depose the Pope.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII

"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor.  It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
