Could the Law of Moses take away anyone's sins?
Absolutely NOT!!!
Within the theology, according to Jews that are faithful to Judaism ... a fake messiah also can't take away sins.

I remember Cathuc school.teAching from the,fifties,and sixties ..
It was,LIMBO .
HOWEVER I believe today YOUR CHURCH Does NOT teach PURGATORY for babies,....nor at any time in my lifetime have they ..
You're right, Rose, we don't teach that unbaptized babies go to Purgatory. What the Church teaches is that they are left to the mercy of God. We don't go any further than that one way or the other. I stated all this the other day.

The Catechism is very easy to access online. I'm not sure why more people don't utilize it as it since it explains very clearly what the Catholic Church teaches.

One has to wonder if the SPIRIT did not prick his conscience about the Jews ...
I know,about the JEWS killed Jesus mentality even in the last century ...Vatican 2 and John Paul and Benedict addressed it ...specifically as NO longer a CHURCH attitude ..
It must have been rife in the dark and middle ages .....
I pray with age Luther was enlightened .in his soul .for his sake ...
If a person actually reads the scriptures ...especially GIDS promise to ABRAHAM ...blessings and curses ...I have to wonder how,one could ignore it..as regards the Treatment of the Jewish people ...yet it happened ..sadly ..
Which only goes to show that the original structure of the "Christ" theocracy was in itself corrupt, and contrary to it's "professed" "teachings" as derived from the GOD if Abraham (including his promise/covenant).

<quoted text>Ah, yes they do. Tell me why they don't. I don't think you know and you didn't retain what was taught by the way you post about the Church.You even know what Purgatory is and why we all go there first? Do you? Give everyone the definition of Purgatory. Some say Purgatory is the fire we go through after we die to be cleansed. You have to be perfectly sinless to go to Heaven. No one on earth is. Only the Blessed Virgin is pure. You need to pray for the por souls so they can be relieased from Purgatory. Protesatnts need to do this.
We're Christians, we believe Jesus gave His life on the cross to pay for our sins.

I'm not sure your meaning of theocracy

Christ .YESHUA ,fulfilled the prophecies,given to the,JEWS,thru Abraham and Moses..He is,the continuation and fulfillment of the,Jewish promise .

The promise,long before the,Jews,given in the Garden ..

Many of the,Jews,did not see,Him.as,Messiah as,they assumed He,would,do what HE WILL do when He,comes again......RULE ..

1261 As regards children who have died without Baptism, the Church can only entrust them to the mercy of God, as she does in her funeral rites for them. Indeed, the great mercy of God who desires that all men should be saved, and Jesus' tenderness toward children which caused him to say: "Let the children come to me, do not hinder them,"64 allow us to hope that there is a way of salvation for children who have died without Baptism. All the more urgent is the Church's call not to prevent little children coming to Christ through the gift of holy Baptism.

All of this preached about "later".
When, where, and to whom was the old covenant renounced and a new covenant spoken by the Abrahamic GOD?

I did not mean to be testy ..But this is,the second time I've said this,..And get told I'm wrong ..I'm glad you said I was right ..I will from now on try not to make even a good comment about your chur h ..But things,like that hAve real life consequences,
But it is,possible folks,like SERAS neighbor think this,purgatory as fact and hurt folks,with the comments ...they make not knowing what their,OWN Church
Teaches,..
That's,why I said,tell them to read, it's,a,dangerous,thing to say as it implies,GOD is,NOT merciful
..not their posts here ...unless,a,vulnerable person reads,them...
I think Catholic girl is,mistaken..
The other poster said it was,still LIMBO three days,ago..now it's,purgatory for babies,..so I discount ..But in real life these things,can mater REGINA,..not for me I'D never say anything close,..
BUT
Try to imagine ..your a,mom ..lost a,young one ..your,not Catholic ..someone,tells,you your child is,burning in purgatory ..That is very sad ...don't you think ..
See,I know I'd never say anything like that ..
I ceased to believe in limbo which was scary enough as,i WAS,taught in school .i ceased to believe it ...about 20 ears,ago
..But to think little,kids,burning in purgatory is,worse,...especially on top of losing your child...the worst pain a,mother could have
Again that's,Why I say THEY ..the Catholics need to read or ask their priests ..
