Babies Left in Limbo? Not Anymore, Says the Pope of Rome

  This is unknown.  The Roman pope only abolished limbus infantium, the place where the souls of unbaptised infants supposedly went.  Limbus patrum, on the other hand, the place where believers who died before Christ came in the flesh supposedly went, is a teaching which remains, well… in limbo!

 

  How wonderful to turn from all this nonsense and uncertainty to the pure stream of the written Word of God, and to find all answers there.  May many Roman Catholics be given eyes to see the errors, backtrackings, and confusion rampant within their “church”, that they may reject it, forsake it, and by God’s grace turn to the Lord Jesus Christ, the only Lord and Saviour, to be saved from their sins!
