The Last Judgement.
Above the altar in the Sistine Chapel is Michelangelo's fresco of the Last Judgement.
On Jesus' right the righteous rise to heaven.
On Jesus' left the damned are dragged to hell.
It is time to revise the theology behind these images.
Those on the right will still rise to heaven.
But those on the left will no longer be condemned.
They will be washed clean and reconciled to God through Love - the unseen hook.
The figure of the angel lifting the dead with rosary beads should be on the left of Jesus above those who need his prayers.
This is the theology of the future.
No one will be condemned.
