A place called Purgatory…a continuing chance for salvation after death. Convenient for sure, but is it accurate according to God’s word?
I was born and reared in the Catholic faith. For the first twenty years of my life I did not question anything that was taught to me as a Catholic. I believed all of it. I never wondered where the basis came from for many of the doctrines in the church. They were taught to me and I, without question, believed them.
During those years, Bible reading was not encouraged. To me, it was simple…trust them and believe what they tell me. So, I was in my thirties before I picked up a Bible. Then, I read John 3:16, then another scripture, then another. Now, even more questions arose about what they taught me. It seemed everything I thought I knew and believed was threatened. The fact is…it was. So, I began a journey for the truth.
This post is not to debate or state, but rather to gather information. So, what I ask is simple…share your thoughts about a place called Purgatory. I will appreciate what you think or believe.
