[b]Pope says hell and damnation are real and eternal[/b]HELL is a place where sinners really do burn in an everlasting fire, and not just a religious symbol designed to galvanise the faithful, Pope Benedict XVI has said.Addressing a parish gathering in a northern suburb of Rome, the Pope said that in the modern world many people, including some believers, had forgotten that if they failed to "admit blame and promise to sin no more", they risked "eternal damnation - the inferno".Hell "really exists and is eternal, even if nobody talks about it much any more".read more: http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,21460090-2,00.html

It is amazing that the Pope will talk about, but our supposed Christian pastors are afraid to mention it! :-(
it hurts, but amen brother
The pope is correct. Our "leaders" are not. Now I come to think about it, 2 subjects not mentioned from the pulpit. Romans and eternal damnation. Maybe we need to "pul" those people from the "pit".Mind you if they did they would empty their churches in 5 seconds flat!
