Purgatory is like a TIME OUT.....your parents still love you, that;s why they need to punish you for your sins, Jesus loves you and can;t wait til you join him AFTER you are CLEANSED.....No sin filled person gets to heaven, UNTIL they are CLEANSED and punished for their sins.
Hello. Please give me the scriptural basis for the belief in purgatory. I believe that the Catholic Church has said that the Bible is THE WORD OF GOD - do you believe that?
The Bible, being the WORD OF GOD, is the authority for everything we believe, is it not?
