  • Franklin Graham takes Rosie O'Donnell to task: 'You don’t have the keys to hell'

    Evangelist Franklin Graham told Rosie O'Donnell to "clean up your mouth" and "put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ," after the comedian told Speaker of the House Paul Ryan he's going "straight to hell." "Rosie, you don't have the keys to hell, but I know the One who does," Mr. Graham said in a Facebook post on Tuesday. "And I can tell you who will be there. Hell is going to be filled with people who reject God’s offer of salvation and turned their backs on His laws and standards, refusing to repent."

    Why Damnation Is Eternal and Other Teachings on Hell Msgr. Charles Pope • November 21, 2017 • This is the thirteenth and final installment in a series on the Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell.The teachings of the Lord on Hell are difficult, especially in today’s climate. The most difficult questions that arise relate to its eternal nature and how to square its existence with a God who is loving and rich in mercy. As a closing reflection on Hell and on the Four Last Things, let us ponder a series of questions.1. Does God love the...

    Images of Hell Msgr. Charles Pope • November 20, 2017 • This is the twelfth in a series of articles on the Four Last Things: death, judgment, Heaven, and Hell.Hell, Fra Angelico, Museo di San Marco, Florence Part of what makes Jesus’ teaching on Hell difficult is the severe imagery He uses. In pointing to Hell, he seems to point to its deepest pits. He warns of eternal fire, undying worms, and wailing and grinding of teeth. Rather than lingering on philosophical descriptions or on the more subtle aspects of suffering, Jesus goes to the deepest aspects of the...

    Hell Has to Be Msgr. Charles Pope • November 19, 2017 • This is the eleventh in a series of articles on the Four Last Things: death, judgment, Heaven, and Hell.Today we come to the final of the Four Last Things: Hell. I have written extensively on this topic over the years, largely in response to the widespread dismissal of the revealed doctrine of Hell. In contradiction to Scripture, many presume that Hell is an unlikely destination for most. Never mind that Jesus taught just the opposite (e.g., Matt 7:13-14). In my own small way, I have tried to...

    Charles Manson is in the hospital and, as one source familiar with his situation tells TMZ, "it's not going to get any better for him." We're told Manson was rushed to a Bakersfield hospital 3 days ago, and has been wheeled around on a gurney for various treatments ... escorted by 5 uniformed cops. We're told the 83-year-old Manson, who lays still covered in blankets, looks ashen. Our sources say Manson's health has been steadily deteriorating and, as it was put to us, "It's just a matter of time."

    Gloria Romanorum ^ | 8/8/17 | Florentius
    Conqueror of Dacia. Subduer of Parthia. The Roman Emperor Marcus Ulpius Traianus — or Trajan as he is known to history — died on August 8 in the year AD 117. By most measures, Trajan was a superior emperor. In his satirical work The Caesars, written in AD 361, the emperor Julian the Apostate puts these words into the mouth of Trajan in defense of his reign and exploits before the gods: "O Zeus and ye other gods, when I took over the empire it was in a sort of lethargy and much disordered by the tyranny that had long...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/15/2017 | Robert Arvay
    We all have our own views on separation of church and state. Some people think that the Constitution simply forbids the establishment of a Church of America. Others hold that any hint of religious principle must be excluded from the public arena. Where does Senator Bernie Sanders stand, and how does it affect his official actions? Although I am by no means an expert in matters of religion, based on a recent Senate hearing, I think I know enough to assert that Senator Sanders knows just enough about Christian doctrine (and in my opinion, about any religion, including his own)...

    Jesus, Who Loves You, Warned Frequently About Hell Msgr. Charles Pope • May 24, 2017 • Many people today put Hell in opposition to the love of God, but Jesus combines them. Here is an important truth: No one loves you more than Jesus Christ, yet no one spoke of or taught on Hell and Judgment more than He did. He gave warning after warning and told parable after parable, practically shouting about judgment and the reality of Hell.No “heresy” of our day is more widespread or pernicious than the denial of hell, its existence, and its sad frequency....

    We will all be up there in Heaven together Despite the indifferentism of our days, it often happens that the same question, which someone — perhaps afflicted with the perspective of eternal condemnation — had posed long ago to the Redeemer keeps coming back: ‘Lord, will only a few people be saved?’ (Lk 13:23). And although hardly anyone might want to recognize the fact, we know that the question of eternal happiness is related to fulfilling the commandments, persevering in the state of grace, and firm adhesion to the one true Church. Today, some tend to put the question in simplified...

    Scripture Does Not Tell Us to Storm the Gates of Hell Msgr. Charles Pope • April 2, 2017 • Recently in my Our Sunday Visitor “Question and Answer” column came the following question from a Catholic convert, in reference to the traditional understanding of the Lord’s promise to the Church: the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it (Matt 16:18).“Before my recent conversion, my (protestant) pastor said that Catholics misunderstand the text about the gates of Hell not prevailing against the Church. He said that it is silly that Catholics think of gates as if they were an...

  • Conditionalism Vs Eternal Torment Vs Universal Reconciliation

    11/29/2016 11:45:22 AM PST · by amessenger4god · 53 replies ^ | 11/29/16 | Gary
    I hold to a doctrine that many would probably consider to be unorthodox, some would even dare call it heresy (though notable ministries such as GotQuestions say it is a valid scriptural interpretation, though they reject it).  It's called Conditionalism, sometimes Annihilationism, and in a nutshell it is the belief that the unsaved (those who die apart from Christ) do not possess immortality and after a period of punishment proportional to their sins will be utterly destroyed - body and soul.  A chief proof-text is Matthew 10:28: Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot...
