In this blog I have made a promise to myself that I intended to keep, however I have to break it. My full intention was to do a blog on apostasies attempting to destroy the word of God, and with the odd atheist propaganda and commentaries done from time to time. Sadly, it seems that the Roman Catholic Apostate Church has many members of it so mislead by false doctrine and brainwashing that it has directed me to bring up more false teachings from the RCC. And by what I mean by saying “false teachings” is direct scripture twisting, outright lies or man-made rituals and ideas that are nowhere to be found in the Bible! Today I will write about Purgatory.
This is the Roman Catholic “make believe” land that is completely unbiblical. By definition the RCC Church states…”it is a place in the afterlife where some of the sins of people are purged through suffering. After a period of time corresponding to the suffering necessary for the sins committed, the person is then released and enters heaven. Gifts or services paid to the church, prayers by the priests, and or masses provided by family or friends in behalf of the deceased can shorten, mitigate or remove the sojourn of the soul in purgatory.” This insults the work Christ did on the cross!
This is a bizarre and total disregard or comprehension of the atonement of Christ! Hebrews 9: 27 reads: 27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,
CCC par 1030 reads “”All who die in Gods grace and friendship, but still imperfectly purified, are indeed assured of their eternal salvation, but after death they undergo purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven.”
I and fellow Protestants have some glaring issues with this doctrine, none of this is found in the Holy Bible! Purification? More works in something we must do is the bottom line again for the Roman Catholic Church! It infers that we are not justified by faith alone. Purgatory also infers by this doctrine that the righteousness of Christ does not cleanse from all sins. God does not require all these works!
The more I read into this the more I get fascinated by where all of this comes from?
