Hell does not exist says Pope Francis

There is much debate about a declaration made Pope Francis.

In a conversation with a 93-year-old atheist at the Vatican, Pope Francis, gave the answer to all your prayers. ‘Hell doesn’t exist,’ the Pontiff told Eugenio Scalfari, the founder of one of Italy’s leading newspapers. Instead, the Pope says the souls of the unrepentant will simply disappear forever and go unpunished, says metro.co.uk

The Vatican has scrambled to clarify comments made by Pope Francis to a well-known Italian journalist that appeared to deny the existence of hell.

The Holy See issued a terse statement saying a lengthy article published in La Repubblica on Wednesday by Eugenio Scalfari, 93, the newspaper’s founder, was “the fruit of his reconstruction” and not “a faithful transcription of the Holy Father’s words”, according to the guardian.co.uk 

It would be really helpful if the Pope could clarify his views on this matter.
