Pope Francis says God opens heaven's doors to non-believers who "obey their conscience," shaking a widely-held assumption about Christian beliefs and reinforcing his image as the most progressive pontiff in history.Really?
"You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don't believe and who don't seek the faith," Francis wrote in a little known 2013 open letter published in the Italian newspaper La Repubblica. Francis was responding to questions from the paper's 91-year-old founder Eugenio Scalfari, reports Britain's The Independent.
This doesn't make any sense. Why have the church, why follow the bible's teachings if at the end of the day you just have to be a good guy and you reap the rewards.
On the other hand if this is false testimony, then the Catholic Church has a huge problem. They have a leader that is undermining the faith...and in essence leading the "flock" astray...
I can't wait to see how this one shakes out.
