The Pope Fixes A Broken Doctrine

All I could think was, “wow, he got that one right,” when I read that the Pope renounced the doctrine of limbo. The idea that infants who die without baptism cannot go to heaven is offensive to common sense if you believe in a loving God. Limbo seems like nothing more than hell without personal responsibility. This all came about because of “Vatican studies that said there were ‘serious’ grounds that such souls could go to heaven, rather than exist between heaven and hell.”

Little had I realized that Limbo was actually an improvement in status from what had been taught before then – that infants dying without baptism were consigned to hell.
