Well this is going to be an interesting thread.
Christ can save whomever he wants. If that was the point, then ok.
If it was that you don’t need God to be saved, then he just talked his way out of a job. Shut the place down and sell it off.
I suspect it was taken out of context.
I spend time on another message board and their take away was all you have to do is be a "nice" person and you go to heaven. The Pope said so! Why they put any stock in what the Pope says, being generally non-religious, is beyond me.
