What is it that you don’t undeerstand?

You state:
[quote:3e3f8yk4] In 2 Maccabees the writer speaks of praying for the dead as “an atonement for the dead, so that they might be delivered from their sin.” [/quote:3e3f8yk4]

which is proof why Maccabees is not part pf the Bible. As stated previously, they said that this was done which is not the same as extablishing doctinal substance anymore then David committing adulterly gives us the okay.
In Matthew’s Gospel we read that “anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” Thus the idea of a place that exists between death and heaven, although not named outright, is implied in the Bible[/quote:3e3f8yk4]

implied? But what does Scripture actually say – Hebrews 9:27 we are to die and then judgement, and others that tell us we (believers) have been washed, cleansed, boughten, and purged all by the blood of Jesus
