Pope Francis There is No Hell Fire; Adam + Eve Are Not Real. This headline has been circulating the internet since 2013! The Pope never made that statement but can you imagine the post stating that he did has been circulating for over 2 years. Now I’ll just paraphrase what he supposedly said: “Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God.” What Churchill once said was true:
[tweet “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”]
When I came across the post on Facebook about the Pope, I went searching for the original article, which came from ncregister a site full of jokes and satire according to their disclaimer: “The original content on this blog is largely satirical. I ceased in the year 1764 to believe that one can convince one’s opponents with arguments printed in books.”
As far as I’m concerned even if the Pope made this statement its lies would have to be pointed out because though the Bible is written by man (inspired by God 2 Peter 1:21) it’s predictions and statements are true. In the same way I just quoted Churchill and just about everyone can agree with what he said it’s the same way I can now quote Solomon and what he said: “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied. Proverbs 13:4 Now was the last quote truth of fiction? It’s amazing that soooo many believe that truth is relative, one man states that 2+2 isn’t 4 2+2 is whatever I’d like it to be. How can people actually believe that their in control of truth? There’s another phase that states truth is relative but that statement in and of itself is absolute, so then how can truth be relative?
I understand that people have a right to choose and that right should never be taken away from them. However for someone to flat out change fact to fiction is a twisted and diabolical.
There needs to be a follow up to this article, as I believe we need to explore the facts of the Bible and compare them to the natural world. My idea here isn’t to convince but to share and give you the reader a clearer picture as to what God is all about.
It was Paul who once wrote these words and they still hold true today: “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.” Acts 20:29
