It goes way beyond illogical to believe that Jesus(the greatest teacher who ever lived) spent 3 and a half years with his disciples and taught them all about spiritual matters and about heaven and about hell.

But somehow 'forgot' to mention a place as important as purgatory which is the only way that a sinful man can attain heaven. Scripture, nor any of the apostles tell us of this place. No one has ever been to this place and come back to tell us about it. But we are supposed to believe that it is real, and only the Catholics know about it.:{

Your "negative exaggerated comments" continues to show "how desperate" you are in pushing your anti-catholic "hate and hostility" towards ANYONE who will be "stupid enough" to believe your "distorted Catholic (undermining and slanderous) rhetoric".
I'm sure that the bible only Protestants on this forum, are "sucking up" all of the National Inquire type of "trash" stories that keeps both (you and them) living in the "muck and mud" of anti-catholic vengeance---for --"four years now!!!! Wow!! Is that how long you have been "shackled in your hostile "bondage" against Jesus Christ and His One True Catholic Church?????? Again--look in the mirror Michael----and you will see "exactly what the problem is!!!

I try not to be too fussy, because I hope above all things to lead people to TRUTH, not to a 'club' or 'doctrine'. But I find the 'National Inquirer type of "trash" stories' slam against Protestants (especially 'Bible only') to be very offensive.

.....The visible results of Vatican II are the discord between the vatican and 47,000 nuns in america.

....The stand firm group of nearly 1,000 AUSC american catholic priests (and growing) yes even from New Jersey, who want vatican II left alone and they too support the nuns in america not the hirearchy.

...The pope now wants Latin back in the mass, so those Spanish, German, Italian, English, French etc. masses that these ethnic people enjoy, if Benedict has his way, it will be back in Latin Only.

<quoted text>I.<snipped>Can you imagine if YOUR child came to you for your forgiveness and you told them you may have it, BUT , I am going to make you go to a place to be tortured first. What a loving parent you would be. But in your warped view of a loving compassionate saviour it is somehow O.K.???? It literally sickens me to even read this garbage.
Quit being so dramatic. It doesn't take much to set you off my friend. When your child does something seriously wrong, they are forgiven, but they still get their just punishment. They are still loved and after the punishment, it's all good.

"Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin." Hebrews 10:18. Our forgiveness is already complete; we do not need to be purified in purgatory!"

This is a common example of not only how Protestants misunderstand what Catholics mean by purgatory, but how they take a biblical verse out of context. First of all, that one offering for sin is Christ, and we all agree since we tie purgatory into the final phase of sanctification. Our forgiveness is complete in Christ and because of Christ's one offering, this is possible. There is no problem with the one offering or sacrifice, or the ongoing sanctification as an application of that one sacrifice (Hebrew 10:10-14; 1 John 1:7-9; 2:1-2).

But let us read Hebrews chapter 10 in context, and see if that sacrifice applies irrevocably forever to a believer:

16: "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds," 17: then he adds, "I will remember their sins and their misdeeds no more." 18: Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer any offering for sin. 19: Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, 20: by the new and living way which he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, 21: and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22: let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,.....

Thanks KayMarie! The difference, however, is that there are many of my former and still Protestant (bothers and sisters in Christ) in which we may disagree on our doctrine of beliefs, but we STILL respect each others faith in Jesus Christ as in ;one body and one Spirit----Wish I could say that about your husband.

Good morning! If you don't mind, I'll answer your post in sections. I've got a busy day and this will completely disappeared, but Vatican II actually said that Latin is to remain the official language of the liturgy of the Roman Rite and the the vernacular could be used when it was deemed appropriate.
But the introduction of the vernacular
the primary liturgy accepted in the nations that they brought the gospel to was the Byzantine Rite. Some regions of Croatia also began using the vernacular, i.e. Old Slavonic, but they used the Roman Rite, instead of the Byzantine. This liturgical tradition lived on until the post Vatican II liturgy was implemented. Many churches had Masses scheduled in both Latin and Old Slavonic, but others were exclusively one or the other. One of the reasons that Vatican II allowed the greater use of the vernacular was that this Glagolitic Mass was celebrated in St. Peter’s Basilica during one of the sessions of the Council.
This does not mean that Mass should always be in the vernacular, since the language used in the Glagolitic liturgy was elevated, not just the language used on the street. It comes down to the fact that there needs to be a sacred language that we use to speak to God. That may be one of the reasons that the popularity of the Latin Mass has grown, sadly the Glagolitic Mass has not had the same rejuvenation."
http://praythemass.org/2012/01/catholic-mass-...
You're using "Sacred Tradition" incorrectly. It's not 'traditions' but "Tradition", two entirely different things. The language used in the Mass would be a tradition, not Sacred Tradition.
Yes, we are still to avoid meat on Fridays. We're required to do so during Lent, but during the rest of the year we may perform a charitable act or personal sacrifice in it's stead. It's in commemoration of and to more closely identify with Christ's passion, it's penitential and something that should be given thought to rather than done on auto-pilot. The media is responsible for yet again misinforming the public. I remember the "announcement" during the news one night that meatless Fridays had been done away with, when in fact that wasn't the case at all. However, it's not dogma.
I'll get to the rest of your post later on when I have more time. Thanks.
What vatican II did, was "LIBERALIZE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH".

It made the church progressive not conservative.

.... Nuns running around in soccer shorts.

.... Priests telling parishioners to use their own conscience when making decisions on birth control and divorce, and not feel guilty for eating meat on fridays........I remember it well.

Speak any lanuguage you want when saying mass. Latin if you know it!

Please don't tell us what we believe Purgatory is.
Look at Purgatory as a process, instead of a place. You and I are going through that process as we speak. And it will continue after we die in order to cleanse ourselves. "Nothing unclean shall enter Heaven" Revelation 21:27
Purgatory might be minutes for some and days for others- although time as we understand it, ceases to exist after death.
You're not clean enough to automatically be in the presence of God in Heaven, 4gvn. But you are not bad enough for eternal separation in hell.
So now what? You think you are without blemish along with all the other born agains? I'm being serious.
What you are saying is NOT catholic teaching as you well know. Purgatory is an imaginary place that has no place in scripture. You keep quoting "nothing unclean shall enter heaven", which is true. But ONLY the sacrifice of Jesus can make us clean. If there was another way God would have spared His Son. Sorry Clay but what you have been taught about purgatory does not align with God's word.

When Jesus died on the cross,He said,"IT IS FINISHED." (John 19:30) Jesus COMPLETED the work of redemption at the cross. No puratory is needed for those who trust in Christ. First John 1:7 declares, "The blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from ALL SIN", Romans8:1 says,"
there is NOW no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." We are cleansed NOT by the "fire of purgatory", but by the blood of Jesus(Hebrews 9:14). Jesus"Himself is the propitiation for our sins"(1John 2:2). It is through Jesus' work on the cross that we are made righteous (2 Cor. 5:21). The apostle Paul spoke of himself as "not having a righteous of his own, derived from the Law, but that which is through FAITH in Christ, the righteousnes which comes from God on the basis of faith." (Philippians 3:9). It is through the wonderful work of Christ on the cross that believers are "blameless", and hence they have no need of an imagined purgatory(Jude 1:24).
