It's official: Pope has not abolished sin, says Vatican
The Vatican felt compelled on Tuesday to deny that Pope Francis had "abolished sin", after a well-known Italian intellectual wrote that he had effectively done so through his words and gestures.
The singular exchange began on Sunday when Eugenio Scalfari, an atheist who writes opinion pieces for the left-leaning La Repubblica newspaper, published an article titled "Francis' Revolution: He has abolished sin".
Scalfari, who held a long private conversation with the pope earlier this year and wrote about it several times, concluded in the complex, treatise-like article that Francis believed sin effectively no longer existed because God's mercy and forgiveness were "eternal"....
The deception continues. The website I am working on has the title: Roman Catholocism, The World's Greatest Mass Deception which deals with the institution, its history, along with the history and teachings of everything from the Pope and Mary, to indulgences, the sacraments, and on down the line. Each section wraps up with what the Bible itself has to say on the matter, minus input from any church fathers, traditions, apocrypha, or Popes. No opinions, just the cold, hard facts. That is all that matters afterall, isn't it...what the Bible itself has to say? Finay working on it again and making some decent progress after completely remodelling the sites template, graphics, etc. I figure if it reaches just one person, then it was worth it.
