What Hell Is NOT!
PURGATORY is a totally false view of Hell which is taught by Catholics. Purgatory: Is it a purifying fire or is it a fatal fable? Catholics who believe in a purifying fire that will purge away their sins are deluded victims of a damnable heresy (2 Pet.2:1). This invention of a place for purification of sins called Purgatory is one of the most seductive attractions of the Roman Catholic religion. Purgatory is what makes Catholicism work. If Purgatory were removed, the Catholic religion would fall. Purgatory is the hope of eternal comfort somewhere down the road. Catholics believe a person does NOT go to an ETERNAL Hell. NO. They go to a temporary Purgatory. Personally, I will stay with the hope of eternal life promised by God.
Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; (KJV) http://www.godcannotlie.org/book_of_titus_ch1.htm
Catholicism teaches that you can never know you are going to Heaven. That is FALSE!
John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. (KJV) . . . What a comfort this verse is!
When we BELIEVE, we HAVE eternal life and we have it NOW!
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (KJV) http://www.godcannotlie.org/john_commentary_ch5.html
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. (KJV) . . . The Bible CLEARLY tells us that we can KNOW that we have eternal life.
Catholics believe that you just have to keep trying, keep working at it, in that long journey toward perfection. Catholics are guilt-ridden and fear-ridden and have NO comfort of whether they will ever get into Heaven. Jesus tells us we can have PEACE!
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (KJV)
If Catholics had no Purgatory for comfort, they would have no safety net to give them what they think is a chance of Heaven. Purgatory is their second chance, a chance after death, and this is why it is SO dangerous! There is absolutely NO hope of salvation AFTER death!
Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (KJV)
Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. (KJV) http://www.hisservants.org/death_then_what_1.1.htm
The Motivation for Purgatory
Catholics have a very good motive! MONEY! Over the centuries billions of dollars have been paid to Roman Catholic priests to obtain relief from those imaginary sufferings in Purgatory's fire. The Catholics have always taught that the period of suffering in Purgatory can be shortened by purchasing indulgences and novenas, buying Mass cards and providing gifts of money. When a Catholic dies, money is extracted from mourning loved ones to shorten the deceased's punishment in Purgatory. Some Catholics will give their entire estates to their religion so that perpetual masses could be offered for them after they die. It is no wonder that the Catholic religion has become the richest institution in the world. The blasphemous supposed buying and selling of God's grace has been a very lucrative business for the Vatican.
Another motive is controlling people. The enslavement and suppression of people is the goal of every cult, and Purgatory does exactly that. The concept of a terrifying prison with a purging fire, governed by religious leaders, is a brilliant invention. Catholics will not say how long people have to suffer for their sins . . . days, months, years?? Nor do they say how many Masses must be purchased before they can be released from the flames. This dreadful fear and uncertainty in loved ones is a ruthless form of religious bondage and deception!
BIBLICAL Support for Purgatory
There is absolutely NONE, anywhere! The word purgatory nor the idea of its sin-purifying fire is found NO where in Scripture. BEWARE!!!
Hades and Hell
HADES. Hell and Hades are NOT the same. They are two entirely different places in two entirely different times. Departed spirits of wicked men go to the temporary Hades to await judgement. AFTER the Judgement, the wicked will be cast into the eternal Hell. Many people confuse the two! . . . . . . . . . . http://www.hisservants.org/hell_hades.htm
