Pope Francis has sure been one of the most controversial popes in history. His way of viewing the church and the world is quite innovative and sometimes a little deviated. When I read this article it shocked me because I am a Roman Catholic; I could not believe it so I looked it up in a Catholic website and it had the same title. Now obviously these are erred comments from the Pope, but he does this to draw attention from other worldviews into the Catholic Church and vanish the currenti image of the Catholic Church of being a rotten and old Church. Even if his intentions are good, this was clearly not the way to express them. So here are some Bible verses that contradict what he says:
(Note that I took them from a Catholic Bible)
For this is how God loved the world: he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
No one who believes in him will be judged; but whoever does not believe is judged already, because that person does not believe in the Name of God's only Son.
so Christ too, having offered himself only once to bear the sin of many, will manifest himself a second time, sin being no more, to those who are waiting for him, to bring them salvation.
then we shall certainly not go unpunished if we neglect such a great salvation. It was first announced by the Lord himself, and is guaranteed to us by those who heard him;
'You must realise, then, that this salvation of God has been sent to the gentiles;they willlisten to it.'
