You Don’t Have to Go to Church or Believe in GOD to Go to Heaven-Says Pope Francis
It looks like the long held precondition to entering the Kingdom of God has changed with the advent of civilisation—such that being a Christian or going to church does not really matter anymore.
For many centuries, righteousness was thought to be an ingredient only capable of being found in the church and only believers were portrayed as capable of going to heaven.
But Pope Francis has once again reiterated that, the Kingdom of God is opened to all clean hearts—and not just those who go to church or believe in a particular version of God.
Speaking at Vatican this morning, Pope Francis, well celebrated for his subtle reform of various catholic dogma stated that; “our father in heaven cares much about what’s in a person heart, less of where the person spends his Sundays or whether this person actually believes in Him or not.”
He added; “therefore, it’s a duty on humanity to serve each other with pure hearts so that each other can see the Kingdom of God.”
He continued “I am not saying being a Christian or going to church each Sunday is unnecessary. It serves its own peaceful purpose but that does not make those who do not worship with us or believe in God less righteous. Heaven is opened to all righteous persons, including non-believers.”
Over the years, Pope Francis has shocked many with his statements—especially when he accepted that evolution and the big bang theory are as real as human existence, sort of rubbishing creationism and calling it a metaphor.
