    Well that is what some people are told. But the only people who know the truth have passed on.

    Purgatory is more of a process and not a place. Purgatory is the final purification after death so that those who have been saved can enter heaven since "nothing unclean can enter heaven" (Rev. 21:27).

    Not everyone will have to go through purgatory, but there's a good chance most will. But only those who have been saved by God's Grace and will go to heaven will go through the purgatory process.

    There's a lot of misunderstandings and misinformation about what purgatory is and what it's not. The concepts of purgatory ARE in the Bible (the problem is often people don't have a good understanding of what purgatory is so they don't recognize it). Here's a helpful explanation:


    Biblical passages that Catholics feel refer to Purgatory: Ps 66:12, Mt 12:32, Phil 2:10-11, Ecc 12:14, Lk 16:19-31, 1 Thess 3:13, Is 4:4 (cf. Eph 4:8-10; 4:7 6:5-7 1 Pet 3:19-20) 2 Tim 1:16-18, Mic 7:8-9, 1 Cor 3:11-15, Heb 12:14, Mal 3:1-4 15:29 12:29, 2 Maccabees 12:39-45, 2 Cor 5:10, Rev 5:3,13, Mt 5:25-6, Lk 12:58-9, 7:1, 21:27

    No. You experience a particular judgment. If you are in mortal sin you are sent to Hell. If you are a martyr or another sanctified person you are sent to heaven. The rest of us go to purgatory.

    Purgatory is a state where we are prepared for unity with God; we are purged of any residual evil that is too small to condemn us because of the mercy of God.

    We are sent there in spirit and soul. We will receive glorified bodies at the general Resurrection.

    even if it was in the bible, I still wouldn't accept purgatory since it is included in a book that claims snakes can talk, noah built a huge boat for two of every animal, people can turn into blocks of sodium chloride (salt), and that the earth is 10000 years old.

    Yeah I'll throw out that book

    a lie from the pit of hell;. I will give you a crisp $100 bill if you can find a shred of it in the Bible. it is a man-made concept, it isn't a bible teaching.Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.

    No PURGATORY. People have gotten Abraham's bosom confused with the concept of purgatory. In the old testament believers were sent to a place called Abraham's bosom to wait until Christ died on the cross to pay for all sin. This place was a paradise and was said to be on one side of a great chasm separating it and hell. When Christ died for everyone's sin he went and brought the people out of Abraham's bosom and brought them into heaven. Because now they were justified and purified through Christ and could live in his presence. The Catholic concept of purgatory has no basis in scripture. If someone dies they either go to heaven or hell, there is no waiting. Christ has died and so if we accept his gift then we can go to heaven, if not, then hell. When we die, we undergo what is called the particular, or individual, judgment. Scripture says that "it is appointed for men to die once, and after that comes judgment" (Heb. 9:27). We are judged instantly and receive our reward, for good or ill. We know at once what our final destiny will be. At the end of time, when Jesus returns, there will come the general judgment to which the Bible refers, for example, in Matthew 25:31-32: "When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats." In this general judgment all our sins will be publicly revealed (Luke 12:2–5).

    Augustine said, in The City of God, that "temporary punishments are suffered by some in this life only, by others after death, by others both now and then; but all of them before that last and strictest judgment" (21:13). It is between the particular and general judgments, then, that the soul is purified of the remaining consequences of sin: "I tell you, you will never get out till you have paid the very last copper" (Luke 12:59). choose ye this day whom u will serve,repent and receive Jesus or else!
