Question by Sum dude: What is the perfect resume that you should have for god in purgatory?
Please list amount of church hours. Also the minimum number of times you can have sex, masturbate, say the different 4 letter words, the amount of times you read the bible, excorcisms, lied at a confession, and the minimum amount of times you can rip one during mass.
Answer by Joshua
No Scriptural basis for purgatory.
First of all, let’s see what the catholic belief about purgatroy is:
Look at what I have underlined:
That temporal punishment is due to sin, even after the sin itself has been pardoned by God, is clearly the teaching of Scripture.
This is absolutly ridiculous!
If the sin has been forgiven, WHY does God see the need for furthur punishment?
Isn’t God powerful enough to forgive the WHOLE SIN?????????
Especially, when we see this truth from Scripture:
Psalm 103:12 (New International Version)
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
God’s forgivness isn’t partial-it is TOTAL!
When we confess our sins, it’s as if we never committed them! To say that they weren’t totally forgiven, demeans the very sacrifice of Jesus, especially when He said “it is finished!”
God’s forgivness is TOTAL!
Then we have this quote:
All sins are not equal before God, nor dare anyone assert that the daily faults of human frailty will be punished with the same severity that is meted out to serious violation of God’s law.
According to Scripture they are!
Revelation 21:8 (New International Version)
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
Cowardess, is just as bad as unbelief, which is just as bad as murder, which is just as bad as sexual imorality, which is just as bad as magic, which is just as bad as idolatry, which is just as bad as lying…………
How can ANYONE so blantently say things like this, when Scripture CLEARLY CONTRADICTS THEM?
But HERE is the botom lime here, (RIGHT FROM SCRIPTURE!!!!!!!)
Hebrews 9:27 (King James Version)
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Here it is people-JUDGEMENT!!!!!!!!!!
HEAVEN OR HELL! THERE IS NO OTHER WAY!
Do I need to say more?
