Thanks for that link.
This is one item that confused the heck out of me:
“Judas Maccabees prayed for the dead and made atonement FOR THEM by sending money to the temple as a sin offering...”
So Jesus’ death and resurrection was not enough? There needs to be additional money payments made?
I don’t think I have enough money to atone for MY sins (for they are many).
You’re most welcome. Just doing my part to help clear the air of misconceptions about the Bible.
Prayers for the Dead, the Communion of the Saints and Purgatory are all issues that many great theologians have broken their teeth on.

Did you not realize Judas Maccabees lived over 150 years before Christ was born? This isn't Judas Iscariot.
