http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friend...hether-his-dead-atheist-father-was-in-heaven/ It used to be the case that Rome taught that faith was at least a necessary ingredient of salvation. No longer. Pope Francis claimed that God was proud of an atheist who baptized his children and suggested that this work saved him even though he lacked faith. I understand that it would be terribly difficult to tell a young child that their father is in Hell, but you do not have to completely repudiate biblical truth to comfort a child in their time of need. You use this as an opportunity to evangelize and tell them that there is a Savior who loves his people and will save them from death. Francis, did not do so, and clearly asserts salvation by works alone here. The Papacy is an AntiChrist institution which has deceived so many people. It is so tragic that my Roman Catholic friends want to follow this man. We have to routinely pray for those who are entrenched in this man-made, false religion.
