Comment: Because

(See in situ)


In order to refute an argument, you must first listen to and understand it.

I agree, the devil is a great deceiver. I believe most Christian mega-churches are deceived. They teach a doctrine that belief alone is the path to heaven, and forgiveness is obtained by merely going to mega-church and washing the sin off ones hands as if it were mud.

"Go and sin NO MORE," was Jesus' message, not "Go and sin and then ask me for forgiveness and I will forgive you then go and sin again."

My interpretation of the Pope was that your "conscience" is your moral understanding, placed there by God. Listen to it and you will find your way to Him. That does not contradict the Gospels.
