The Lutheran heresy in Amoris Laetitia

The words of Our Lord Jesus Christ as recorded by St. Matthew the Apostle and St. Mark the Evangelist whose feast day just past a few days ago, said:

“The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 13:41-42, 49-50
“And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire…where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’ For everyone will be salted with fire.” Mark 9:43, 48-49
If what follows below is heresy; if this is one of the reasons that King Henry VIII called out for the execution of Father Martin Luther, to which he responded in a manner that history would prove, ironic:

"O Defender of the sacraments! O Supporter of the Romish church, twice a Thomist and by far the most deserving of the Pope's indulgence!"  Martinus Lutherus contra Henricum Regem Angliæ

If this is what split the Church of Europe and left tens of millions of souls to this day lost:

"If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy.  If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin.  God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners.  Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong, but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world.  We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides. We, however, says Peter (2. Peter 3:13) are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth where justice will reign.  It suffices that through God's glory we have recognized the Lamb who takes away the sin of the world. No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day.  Do you think such an exalted Lamb paid merely a small price with a meager sacrifice for our sins?  Pray hard for you are quite a sinner." A Letter From Martin Luther to Melanchthon, Letter no. 99, 1 August 1521

Then what, pray tell, is this?

“No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!” Amoris Laetitia 297 Jorge Bergoglio, Bishop of Rome as he asked to be called.

What is it? It is more deception from the same deceiver who can teach "Ecclesia semper reformanda est", and still avoid the fury of faithful but drowsy Catholics. Let alone the episcopy.

And don't suppose that his "no-one can be condemned forever" applies only to Christians who believe, as did Luther's. This man appears to be a dead-set universal salvationist. He is a modern Jesuit after all. It is the way of the new religion.

????? So, Matthew, are you a Lutheran? What Catholics believe is that we will be judged when we die by Jesus Christ. And if He condemns us then--it is forever. The four last things: death, judgment, heaven, hell. For all eternity.

Anon. 7.32: No, you've misunderstood. I am saying that the Bishop of Rome's seeming universalism surpasses that of even the protestants. Luther said that one need only believe to be saved. It is not clear that for Bergoglio one need even believe.

Hopefully, some day A.L. will be declared anathema and Pope Francis a heretic unless he repents.
