  1. 3 requirements to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
    1. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
    2. Repent for your sins.
    3. Be baptized in water.

    Maybe the father of the kid was baptized earlier in his life. Maybe before his death he did accept Jesus Christ into his life and maybe he did ask for forgiveness.

  2. I think maybe the pope should read the bible. I feel sorry for the kid. Because he was brainwashed he has to worry about such things. Say what you want but the reality of it is the father is dead. Who's to say if there is life after death? If the bible is true then he is in hell. If not then his father is in the same state he was before he was born. No one on this rock knows what happens after we die. To assert such knowledge is just ignorant. To ignore simple facts is equally ignorant. There is no "interpreting" the bible. It is as stated

  3. Those of you who left the mean and judgmental comments regarding his answer to this boy will answer for it, one way or another. You think you're high & holy but you're low and worthless. The hard truth is your existence.

  4. 교황이 미쳤군… 믿지 않아도 좋은 마음만 있으면 천국간다…? 역시 천주교는 예수보다는 마리아네,,, 오 주여! 저를 용서치 마소서! 저는 저의 죄를 아나이다!!!

  5. It is known to us and to you that those who are in invincible ignorance of our most holy religion, but who observe carefully the natural law, and the precepts graven by God upon the hearts of all men, and who being disposed to obey God lead an honest and upright life, may, aided by the light of divine grace, attain to eternal life; for God who sees clearly, searches and knows the heart, the disposition, the thoughts and intentions of each, in his supreme mercy and goodness by no means permits that anyone suffer eternal punishment, who has not of his own free will fallen into sin.

  6. A hell of fire is simply a misinterpretation of old texts. In the next life, we won’t even be physical beings anymore. So we will no longer feel physical pains, but different types of pains. The metaphor of a fiery hell is just symbolism for God to describe being distant from him in the next life. For more information, please refer to the writings of Baha’u’llah; the latest manifestation of God and the return of the spirit of Jesus.

  7. As much as this brought tears to my eyes, I have to say the pope is wrong. All people are sinners and worthy of the wrath of God. No one does good – no, not one – in the words of Paul. Salvation is through Christ alone, not through our own works, because through our own works, we all stand condemned. If the boy's father died an atheist, he is lost because he stood in rebellion against His Creator and the source of his life. That might sound harsh, but reality is not dependent on our feelings. It is what it is.I feel for the boy – I really do. But you're not doing him any favors by telling him beautiful lies.

  8. The Pope should have left the question alone and whispered yes to the boy to make him feel better. Jesus asked why do you call me good, there is only one that is good. To get to heaven you must believe that Jesus is our savior, no good deed will grant you a pass to dwell with God. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life” “For by grace are you saved, through faith, and this not of yourselves – it is the gift of God. Not by works, so that no one can boast”If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and receive forgiveness from God, here is prayer you can pray. Saying this prayer or any other prayer will not save you. It is only trusting in Jesus Christ that can provide forgiveness of sins. This prayer is simply a way to express to God your faith in Him and thank Him for providing for your forgiveness. "God, I know that I have sinned against You and am deserving of punishment. But Jesus Christ took the punishment that I deserve so that through faith in Him I could be forgiven. I place my trust in You for salvation. Thank You for Your wonderful grace and forgiveness! Amen!"

  9. So sad to see so many people who say that they believe in a loving God so willing to see that loving God send a loving man to hell just because he didn't believe in that loving God. People if there is a Judgement it will be your heart that gets judged not your doctrine. Basically the Bible teaches that it is because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice that mankind will have judgement. We all serve one of two masters Love or hate and it is the master we give our heart to that we will be judged by. For all those who don't believe in that Loving God what will you be judged by?

  10. Yes he is in hell, like every atheist, catholic, budhist,muslim and people who believe something diferent from the what the bible says. Very soon the son of the devil named the pope is going to meet the father of that boy in hell for being a liar, bible is clear there is only one way to heaven Jesus Christ. Idolatry sends you to hell and every catholic is in idolatry.
