Purgatory first enacted as binding doctrine upon all Catholics by Gregory the great.

I'm sweet. I'm not Catholic.

Purgatory is a Catholic lie.

Yes, they do say it is in the Bible.

But it mocks Christ when He says He forgives us.

1 Corinthians 15:51-58 "Behold, I shew you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

"For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

"So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

"O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

"The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."

There is no penalty once you are forgiven. Christ invites us to the Wedding Feast of the Lamb - not to a fiery furnace to purge us of sin.

Fire, even for a minute, would make anyone insane.

Oh my goodness! Indulgences are back?

Get your sentence in purgatory reduced now, while the offer lasts!

I had no idea the Vatican was selling "eternal life insurance" policies again.
