[quote:365bc71d]Simply start by showing your friend he already believes in Purgatory.
“Are you perfect?” “No.”
“Can anything imperfect enter Heaven?” “No.”
“Do we need purification?” “Yes.”
“Purgatory is purification.”[/quote:365bc71d]
Ha ha…that’s a part of the article I wrote on this site about purgatory. ” title=”Wink” />
The problem is that purgatory does not fit in with the “once saved, always saved” mentality/theology. So, basically, the people who think they are “saved” know they are going to heaven so there is no purgatory for them. Of course on the flipside, those that are not “saved” (specifically Catholics to some people) are going to hell. There is no in-between. But of course one would come to this conclusion if they subscribe to an obscure eschatology. ” title=”Very Happy” />
