← The fires of Hell are real and eternal, Pope warns

Tyler Durden's Avatar Jump to comment 16 by Tyler Durden

The Pope, who as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was head of Catholic doctrine, noted that “forgiveness of sins” for those who repent was a cornerstone of Christian belief. He recalled that Jesus had forgiven the “woman taken in adultery” and prevented her from being stoned to death, observing: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”
How curious holy Joe chose that particular example as biblical scholars reckon this event never actually took place and later authors added it to the gospel of John in order to make Jebus look more "profound".
