Did the Pope Deny That Hell Existed? The Jury’s Outby

Pope Francis I has made headlines in recent weeks and months thanks to progressive comments he has made regarding where we go when we pass away – and with certain comments regarding evolution and the veracity of the big bang theory having taken headlines of their own on the Pope’s behalf in recent times, it’s hardly surprising that his every word is being waited on by more than just his Catholic faithful. Francis I has been a controversial Pope in some ways, but in many others, he has been a breath of fresh air – and perfectly justified in the comments he has made publicly.

Most recently, it is being reported that the Pope has discussed whether or not ‘Hell’ – as Christianity defines it – actually exists. Certainly, his denial of there being such a place in the afterlife would turn some of the core ideals that the Bible teaches on their head – so did he, or didn’t he, deny or confirm the existence of a slightly warm place down below where all the bad people go? It is, oddly, difficult to say – as even myth debunking website Snopes.com is currently stating that such a statement is, thus far, unproven.

Apparently Pope Francis said there is no hell, and people are losing it

It all tails back to a man called Eugenio Scalfari – who writes on behalf of La Repubblica and who puts forward in an article – entitled ‘It Is an Honor to be Called a Revolutionary’ – that Pope Francis stated that those who cannot be ‘forgiven’ simply find no place in the afterlife to go – as opposed to the eternal damnation that we are all well aware of. According to Scalfari, quoting a translation by Rorate Caeli, the Pope has outright answered the question as to what happens to all the bad souls once they pass. “They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him,” the Pope is alleged to say, “But those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear.”

However, The Vatican was very quick to refute such claims, stating that Scalfari has previously been an unreliable source. They quote: “It is not the first time (Scalfari) has misrepresented the Pope’s words following a private audience.” It’s also thought that Scalfari noted, “(…) some of the Pope’s words I reported were not shared by Pope Francis,” referring to previous reports and interviews

Therefore, the official line is – it’s not been proven that the Pope denies the existence of Hell – therefore, those keeping the faith will do well to continue as they are doing!
