Lately, Fr. Barron has been busy on Youtube leaving assorted distortions and confusing replies to the comments on his "we have a reasonable hope all people are saved" video, where two days ago he reasserted his 'hope' for universal salvation...
My focus is not on his video...but rather his replies (both new and old) to people who are confused by his statements that often conflict with the Church, the Bible and the writings of the Saints and Doctors of the Church.
Here is an old comment Fr. Barron made telling a woman TO speculate that "all will be saved" but DO NOT speculate that anyone will go to hell.
When people asked him about Ananias and Sapphira being saved or damned (Bible: Acts 5)...
...Barron ignored them and did not respond. I thought it was a good question and I would have liked seeing Barron's response.
So it's really no great wonder why the people leaving comments on Barron's Youtube Channel are so confused. Barron has stirred up valid questions and they aren't getting valid answers.
In the following comments we see exactly why Bishop-elect "hopes" all will be saved...he wonders if any human ever dies in a state of mortal sin:
Looking around the world today, Fr. Barron questions whether or not people die in a state of mortal sin? This stuns me.
Oh well, that explains it!
I have no idea what Bishop-elect Barron is saying here (above). Is he saying because Christ calls 'us all' that 'all' will answer and be saved? He seems very focused on the word "all", while completely forgetting Sacred Scripture of Christ separating the sheep from the goats (Matthew 25).
Barron goes on with his "all" fascination:
I think I'm having a Clinton flash-back 'what is the meaning of is'!
Notice below that Fr. Barron poo-poos Church approved apparitions on revelation about hell, but he fully supports Dante's Divine Comedy (the "single tear") as a reliable source for information on hell and salvation.
now again just two days ago he uses Dante as proof...
And again he REALLY likes Dante:
Nothing against Dante...but I would take Sacred Scripture, the visions of hell and warnings of Our Lady of Fatima over Dante's Divine Comedy as a resource on Hell and the very real fact that people will spend eternity there.
One more thing... Barron isn't too fond of Church Militant's Michael Voris for pointing all this out over the years. ;)
Barron thinks Voris is a "bully" and says he won't respond to him...
...yet Barron says he DID respond to Voris...
In Christ and wondering what in Hell Bishop-elect Fr. Barron is talking about,
