Talk about Pelagianism: Francis tells Boy his Atheist Father is in Heaven because he was “good”
No one who has not experienced it himself can possibly understand the incredible grief a little child who has lost his father has to endure. Such grief must be infinitely worse when the father in question was an atheist, since anyone who dies an atheist will certainly be damned:
He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned. (Mk 16:16)
But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God, must believe that he is, and is a rewarder to them that seek him.
