I saw a few people share this link to a news article with quotes from the pope making him sound like he's saying that the firey hell we once thought of isn't real, Adam and eve is just a fable and all religions are correct. Can someone help explain this?
It's all a hoax. Although to be clear.
The Church teaches that hell is real.
We are not we're required to believe in Adam and Eve in the way it is written. The Church takes no stance on the evolution of the body. Its stance is that the soul of humans is specially given to us by God. It teaches that whether man's body evolved is irrelevant, but one is required to believe that through this there was ONE original set of parents who committed sin and through that person all of humankind has the effect of this (original sin).
The Church still teaches that there is no salvation outside of the Church. Even one who is saved, through their ignorance who is outside of the Church, is still saved by the Church (I believe that's how it is said).
