Pope Francis tells atheists to abide by their own consciences in other words he is preaching salvation by works.

In comments likely to enhance his progressive reputation, Pope Francis has written a long, open letter to the founder of La Repubblicanewspaper, Eugenio Scalfari, stating that non-believers would be forgiven by God if they followed their consciences.

Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don’t believe and who don’t seek the faith. I start by saying – and this is the fundamental thing – that God’s mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience.

“Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience.”

Robert Mickens, the Vatican correspondent for the Catholic journal The Tablet, said the pontiff’s comments were further evidence of his attempts to shake off the Catholic Church’s fusty image, reinforced by his extremely conservative predecessor Benedict XVI. “Francis is a still a conservative,” said Mr Mickens. “But what this is all about is him seeking to have a more meaningful dialogue with the world.”

In a welcoming response to the letter, Mr Scalfari said the Pope’s comments were “further evidence of his ability and desire to overcome barriers in dialogue with all”.

In July, Francis signalled a more progressive attitude on sexuality, asking: “If someone is gay and is looking for the Lord, who am I to judge him?”. we thought you were the Pope.

is the bible wrong and pope francis right?

note the catholic church has never taught that man is saved by works alone. It has always preached man is saved through faith and that works are needed for salvation because works are a sign or proof of our faith, that works without faith is dead and faith without works is worthless.  James 2:14-26

this is a radical departure from the gospel of christ and the teachings of the church pre-vatican council.All religions teach that to go to heaven one must be a good person(do good works). except for christianity in all the churches this is the one thing they all agree on. To get to heaven one must have grace through faith in jesus christ. Man’s greatest works before god are nothing but filthy rags. But works done through faith in Jesus Christ under Grace are of utmost importance because through that we are involved in what jesus calls the kingdom of heaven on earth and the fruit is the works of the holy spirit through us. Atheists are not involved in this process because they dont know jesus christ and have not been baptised and received the holy spirit. So what the pope is alluding to is a doctrine which goes further than the abomination of once saved always saved taught by many churches but that everyone is saved because if we follow our conscience our good works will save us. This is a direct contradiction of the bible and historical christianity and a bold move. Using obfuscating language he has once again been able to push these radical and progressive moves which perhaps may lead to the one world religion which pope john paul2 began at the abomination of ASSISI interfaith dialogue where unknown to most catholics even were present muslims, buddhists, voodoo doctors kali(worship of death) priestess,  The mystery of iniquity is coming out . The new world order call it the externalization of the hierarchy. luciferianism’s main thrust is do as thou wish is the whole of the law, although they will add in as as indent as long as you don’t hurt anyone(even though its to placate people who are wary of the original commandment.) when the pope says who is he to judge homosexuals this is what he means. Judge not yet ye be judged. which is the cry of satan(who uses the bible against us as he tried when he tempted christ himself).   And now it seems as long as you follow your  conscience (satanists in the media are always saying follow your heart). you will be fine  Its the same message as the satanic one but different obfuscating language .  In a simple cursory reading of acts we find out how Bold this man has .

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Perhaps  these comments which were similar to other statements he has  made is more about him himself(that he is an atheist acting by conscience rather than the grace of god)also the present state of the priests, bishops cardinals and the Pope. if the lukewarm believers in the church are wary of this man what of the catholics who wish to follow christ. His words are a direct challenge to them because they see the Pope as the guardian of the faith. Strange he wants to affirm the catholic church is the dominant christian church in the world yet says you dont need to be a christian to get to heaven you dont even have to believe in god and who is he to judge homosexuals . What is happening is he is forcing them to choose follow me or be excommunicated(and go to hell) or accept the new teaching.  The only people who go to hell according to the Vatican catholic church now are Roman Catholics who refuse to acknowledge the Pope however strange and uncatholic the teachings become.
