Cool - ty. Is it still possible for people to pay for their way out of sin? IOW is the practice of “indulgences” true today?
It never was. Some abuses did take place, but those were contrary to Church teaching. One thing that is often misunderstood is the concept of restitution and corporeal acts of mercy as penance. Too often these have been mischaracterized as "buying your way into heaven" by the Reformation.
Peace be with you
