    The nature, joy, and sorrows of Purgatory—its fire, mental agony, how to avoid it, etc. Plus, the nature and happiness of Heaven—its never-ending freshness, the Beatific Vision, personal friendship with God, the "light of glory," etc. Brief but : Purgatory by James Akin Suppose a friend or co-worker comes to you and says: "The Catholic Church has this massive doctrine of purgatory, invented in the middle ages. The Church used to even sell indulgences to shorten your time in purgatory by a fixed number of days. This doctrine is based on books that don't belong in the Size: KB.

    Purgatory is not Hell minus a few torments and degrees Fahrenheit; it's not Heaven minus joy. It's not a "Third Final Destination" of souls. Purgatory is simply the place where already saved souls are cleansed of the temporal effects of sin before they are allowed to see the holy face of Almighty God. In Paradise Lost, Satan has to journey across Chaos to find Earth. This journey is long and arduous and is one of the accomplishments of Satan that makes him seem heroic. In Book II, Satan, with no clear idea of where he is going or how to get there, sets out across Chaos, intent on finding God's new creation.

      No tongue can tell nor explain, no mind understand, the grievousness of Purgatory. But although I see that there is in Purgatory as much pain as in Hell, I yet see the soul that has the least stain of imperfection accepting Purgatory as though it were a mercy, as I have said, and holding its pains of no account as compared with the least stain that hinders a soul in its love. THE FIFTH DAY Duration of Purgatory. PREPARATORY PRAYER. MEDITATION: How long do the pains last in Purgatory? Nobody knows. God has allowed some Souls to appear to their friends and benefactors to announce their departure for Heaven, but it seldom happened, and we cannot draw any conclusion from such cases.

He was the author of Purgatory Explained by the Lives and Legends of the Saints and The Dogma of Hell. His purpose with the latter work, though the subject itself is terrifying, was not to sensationalize or to horrify, but rather to instruct people on the reality of Hell and to excite them to a dread of losing Heaven/5(99).

Jerry L. Walls, the author of books on hell and heaven, completes his tour of the afterlife with a philosophical and theological exploration and defense of purgatory, the traditional teaching that most Christians require a period of postmortem cleansing and purging of their sinful dispositions and imperfections before they will be fully made ready for by: 9.

Therefore, purgatory cannot be authored by the one true God. It has to come from Satan. Now back to the third reason purgatory doesn’t exist. Ephesians 1 6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

God has already made us accepted in the beloved, so why do we need more purification?. Purgatory, therefore, is a temporary, intermediate place (or state of being) where good deeds and works can be performed in order to purge our impurity prior to our final destiny with God.

Although millions of Catholics believe purgatory to be a reality, the idea needs to be tested in light. Augustine, in the 20th Book of his City of God, chap interprets this as purgatory.

The preceding verse refers to the saved (“called holy” and “recorded for life”) and verses 5.

According topurgatory is “a condition or place in which the souls of those dying are purified from sins.”. Essentially, purgatory is part of the Catholic doctrine of faith where a “final purification” occurs in order to “achieve the holiness necessary to enter heaven,” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, CCC ).Author: Jessica Galán.

In light of this, the truth about Purgatory is almost self-evident to Catholics. However, to many Protestants this is one of the most repugnant of all Catholic teachings. It represents “a medieval invention nowhere to be found in the Bible.” It’s often called “a denial of the sufficiency of Christ’s sacrifice.”.

As noted, only a believer would interpret an experience of this type in the light of faith and come to a conclusion that the mysterious visitor in the dorm room that night was from Purgatory, not from Hell. The visitor did not make a grand announcement that he was “Mr.

So-and-so, your former teacher, suffering in Purgatory, needing prayer.”Author: Peter Darcy. Purgatory enables us fully to come to terms with reality. Richard Purtill has suggested that the period between our death and resurrection will be a time of “reading” our lives like a book.

The earliest Christians believed in this state.Purgatory is an extra-biblical teaching developed beyond what Jesus and the apostles presented in the Bible.
