Welcome to the Matrix Blog!
Ministries like mine are called ‘Discernment Ministries’. A group of them suddenly came on the scene around the 1990s. The Internet was a great gift to us since so much research came on board making it easy to share information with others. Life went along just fine with the usual about cults and Ministers of the Gospel who lost track of the truth, until this last Pope arrived. It truly became necessary to get on radio programs to hopefully have listeners of all religions realize, that they are caught up in a Matrix unbeknownst to most. How can that be when preachers seem to be the same old same old. Pope Francis I is telling people that there is no salvation outside of the Catholic Church. Behind the scene preachers are getting on the Pope’s bandwagon to be politically correct. The Bible makes it clear that the flock of believers are going to be deceived and abandoned by the shepherds, if Jesus Christ is not number one in believer’s hearts. The final church is described as the Laodecian Church which is lukewarm. God wants them to be hot or cold. God will spew out the lukewarm believers. Our mission is to help people understand that.

“Pope Declares No Hell?”
So ran the riveting headline on the Drudge Report of Holy Thursday.
By Pat Buchanan – April 02, 2018
Drudge quoted this exchange, published in La Repubblica, between Pope Francis and his atheist friend, journalist Eugenio Scalfari.
Scalfari: “What about bad souls? Where are they punished?”
Bad souls “are not punished,” Pope Francis is quoted, “those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.”
On the first Holy Thursday, Judas betrayed Christ. And of Judas the Lord said, “Woe to that man by whom the Son of Man shall be betrayed; it were better for him if that man had never been born.”
Did the soul of Judas, and those of the monstrous evildoers of history, “just fade away,” as General MacArthur said of old soldiers? If there is no hell, is not the greatest deterrent to the worst of sins removed?
What did Christ die on the cross to save us from?
If Francis made such a statement, it would be rank heresy.
Had the pope been speaking ex cathedra, as the vicar of Christ on earth, he would be contradicting 2,000 years of Catholic doctrine, rooted in the teachings of Christ himself. He would be calling into question papal infallibility, as defined in 1870 by the Vatican Council of Pius IX.
Questions would arise as to whether Francis is a true pope.
The Vatican swiftly issued a statement saying the pope had had a private conversation, not a formal interview, with his friend Scalfari.
VATICAN DENIES POPE SAID HELL DOESN’T EXIST
A Reporter quoted Francis saying unrepentant souls ‘disappear‘ Published: 5 hours ago 3.29.2018 Pope Francis
Pope Francis is once again under a global spotlight for reported comments to a journalist that conflict with 2,000-year-old Roman Catholic doctrine.
This time, veteran Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari, an atheist, is reporting the pope declared “hell doesn’t exist, the disappearance of the souls of sinners exists.”
The Vatican immediately issued a statement claiming that what is reported in an article Thursday on the website of the Italian leftist newspaper La Repubblica is the author’s own “reconstruction” of the pope’s words, reported the Catholic News Agency.
The Holy See said Scalfari, 93, had a “private meeting for the occasion of Easter, however without giving him any interview.”
“What is reported by the author in today’s article is the result of his reconstruction, in which the literal words pronounced by the Pope are not quoted,” the Vatican statement said. “No quotation of the aforementioned article must therefore be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.”
The Catholic News Agency said it was not the first time Scalfari has misrepresented the pope’s words following a private audience.
In November 2013, the journalist admitted that at least some of the words he had published a month prior that stirred controversy “were not shared by the Pope himself.”
Scalfari has said that all his interviews have been conducted without a recording device and without taking notes while the person is speaking, CNA reported.
“I try to understand the person I am interviewing, and after that I write his answers with my own words,” Scalfari explained to reporters in November 2013.
He conceded it was possible that “some of the pope’s words I reported, were not shared by Pope Francis.”
CNA noted Francis has previously spoken about the existence of hell in public speeches. At a prayer vigil in March 2014, for example, he said that members of the mafia should change their lives “while there is still time, so that you do not end up in hell. That is what awaits you if you continue on this path.”
However, Francis, the first Jesuit to become a pope, has stirred controversy from the beginning of his papacy in 2013 regarding his stance on many Catholic doctrines.

There is no hell where the souls of sinners suffer in eternity, Pope Francis was quoted as saying in a Thursday interview with Italian daily La Repubblica. The Vatican denied the report and said it would sue for defamation.
After death, the souls of people who repent are pardoned by God and join in his contemplation, “but those who do not repent, and therefore cannot be pardoned, disappear,” Francis said.
“Hell does not exist – what exists is the disappearance of sinful souls,” he added.
The pope was interviewed by Eugenio Scalfari, a veteran Italian journalist and atheist who regularly muses about faith and religion, and enjoys access to the leader of the Catholic Church.
In the past, the veracity of quotes he attributed to the pope has been called into question, especially after the 93-year-old Scalfari admitted to never using a tape recorder during interviews.
