"Hell does not exist": controversial statement by Pope Francis

Controversy for an interview with Pope Francisco: "Hell does not exist" "There is no hell in which the souls of sinners suffer for all eternity," Pope Francis said in an interview that generated doubts and controversy on Thursday. After the death, the souls of the people who repent receive the forgiveness of God and join those who contemplate it, but "those who do not repent and therefore can not be forgiven, disappear," said the Argentine Pontiff, as published the Italian newspaper La Repubblica. "Hell does not exist, what exists is the disappearance of sinful souls," he added in a series of statements that could irritate the most conservative sectors of the Catholic Church.
