The looming Catholic crisis
Apr 05, 2018
Catholics are not going to let Pope Francis’ abolition of hell be forgotten or swept under the rug. Hell is too important to them. The crisis has just begun.
ROME, April 4, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Mainstream media was in a furor last week over the news of Pope Francis purportedly saying that “hell does not exist” and that unrepentant souls in mortal sin simply “disappear.”
On the eve of the Holy Thursday, an Italian journalist published an article claiming that the pope had told him that hell does not exist. Eugenio Scalfari, 93, atheist journalist and founder of the left-wing newspaper La Repubblica, claimed on March 28 that Pope Francis had told him two days before that the souls of those who do not go to heaven are annihilated.
“Souls are not punished,” Francis allegedly said. “Those who repent obtain God's forgiveness and go among the ranks of those who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot be forgiven disappear. There is no hell — there is the disappearance of sinful souls."
It appears that Pope Francis is an annihilationist, that is, that non-Catholics will be annihilated, not tortured, and that they will “simply disappear.” I also wonder where Francis picked up the idea of annihilationism, since this would have been a rare view among the early Church Christians.
Interestingly enough, a similar belief was held by Charles Parham, one of the original Pentecostals, who oversaw the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on New Year’s Eve of the year 1900. The only difference is that Parham, like most annihilationists, believed that these sinners would be burned up, rather than just disappear.
Parham has been ignored largely by the mainstream Pentecostal movement, which usually traces its origin to Azusa Street in Los Angeles in 1905, rather than to Parham’s earlier movement in 1900.
Regardless of one’s belief, it is clear that the belief in Annihilationism did not hinder the Holy Spirit from showing up at Parham’s meetings. So one could draw the conclusion that such a belief was not a requirement for either salvation or the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
Nonetheless, recent events show just how important it is to Catholics (and others) that sinners burn in hell forever. It will be interesting to see, then, how many Catholics will turn into Protestants, protesting the Pope’s view of hell.
What happens if there is a New Protestant Movement in 2018? If Catholics rebel, it will show that they do not really believe that their popes are necessarily ordained by God, nor do they believe that they should submit to whatever he says is true. If they impeach Francis for heresy, what would that do to the overall organization itself? The charge of heresy implies that such a person has forsaken a core belief of Christianity itself and is therefore not a true Christian. In other words, such a person will “go to hell.” Hmm, Dante’s Inferno had a pope in hell, too.
The same article above continues, saying,
The story was highlighted in the United States by the Drudge Report, whose online headline shrieked “Pope Declares No Hell?” It linked to a March 29 article by Michael W. Chapman of CNS News, who called Francis’s alleged remarks “a denial of the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.”
Chapman’s statement shows his ignorance of church history, of course. The doctrine of hell as an eternal fiery pit for all sinners, from which there is no escape, is NOT a “2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church.” Most of the early church believed in the Restoration of All Things, and the big controversy over this teaching did not come to the surface until the year 400 A.D.
While some of the Latin fathers held the view of eternal torment, such as Tertullian, Lactantius, and Augustine, their Greek-speaking counterparts did not. The Latin fathers did not know Greek very well, and they interpreted aionian to mean “eternal,” rather than “age-abiding.” Even a century after the controversy had erupted, Augustine himself lamented in his writings that “most people” believed in Restoration, not eternal torment. I wrote about this in my book, Creation’s Jubilee.
I am delighted, of course, that the pope’s newly-revealed doctrine has brought up this topic for discussion (and infighting). Hell teaching needs to be put on the front burner, so to speak. Christians have assumed for a long time that this was taught by the apostles from the beginning. But that is not true, as anyone who has studied church history well knows. In fact, this is one of the big church secrets that they would rather not discuss. It is embarrassing to them.
Short-term embarrassment is better than long-term deception.
The recent “Q” posts tell us that the pope will have a terrible (month of) May. Does Trump know that something is coming? Will it take until May to impeach the Pope? Time will tell.
Q also hints that Epstein Island is connected to Rome in some way. Epstein Island, owned by Jerry Epstein, the great pedophile and friend of politicians, built an underground temple on his island, where Satanist politicians like to worship and to fulfill their lusts. Now, Q says, he is trying to hide the tunnels or destroy them to hide the evidence. However, since he allowed cell phones on the island, nothing could be hidden.
“Phones were allowed in. These people are stupid,” says Q. The NSA can listen in on any telephone conversation. And it has recorded all the conversations on Epstein Island. Q says, “The bite that has no cure—NSA.” All of the technology that was originally set up to spy on average Americans is now being used to against the corrupt Satanist politicians. Think about Haman’s gallows. Haman died on his own gallows.
After the Vatican II Council in the early 1960’s, a new meeting hall was built in 1971. Architecture is important to occultists and to Freemasons. The building itself is called Nervi Hall, named after its architect. The meeting room is called Paul VI Audience Hall, named after Pope Paul VI, who became Pope during the latter days of Vatican II.
Here are more pictures:
The hall was designed to place the pope in the serpent’s mouth between its two fangs to show that he is the spokesman for the serpent. Q says, “Symbolism will be their downfall.” This is because they believe in “As in heaven, so on earth.” Hence, in order to bring spiritual realities into the earth, they design architecture and other images in such a way as to accomplish this. Their “downfall” will come when people discover the meaning of their symbolism, for then there will be no more secrets. Mystery Babylon relies upon secrecy to survive.
Q poses the question in post #1002, “If Satanists took over the Vatican, would you notice?”
Well, a Jesuit named Malachi Martin noticed. In fact, he wrote a book about it entitled, Windswept House. It was written as a novel, because he wanted to live to see its publication. Martin was what you might call a “true believer” who objected to Vatican II. He discovered that while Paul VI was being installed as pope on June 21, 1963, a parallel ceremony was taking place nearby which was a ritual to crown Satan (the serpent).
Hence, the question, “If Satanists took over the Vatican, would you notice?”
On April 4, 2018 Q posted this:
List the estimated wealth of religious organizations.
$229B ($229 billion)
Board of Superintendence.
Supervisory Commission of Cardinals.
Clown connection [connected to the CIA, “Clowns in America,” as he calls them]
1832 Rothschild loan to the Holy See.
Q is now revealing things about the Vatican that the intelligence organizations have known for a long time. He is suggesting that the Vatican Bank is connected to the CIA and that the Bank has been allied with the Rothschild banks since 1832.
This was probably an outgrowth of the Council of Vienna (“Holy Alliance” of 1815). The Rothschilds were said to be the bankers of the Holy Alliance. Hence, when the modern banking system collapses in the fall of Mystery Babylon, the Vatican will collapse with it, because these banks are all tied together.
We live in momentous times. Keep in mind that the Q posts began about 10 days after the feast of Tabernacles last October. The timing of these posts shows their importance in the prophetic flow of events.
By the way the American Intelligence Media (AIM) recently tried to discredit Q. But this only exposed AIM as a Vatican attempt to control the right-wing narrative.
