    No it is not. It's a total fabrication by the Roman Catholic church. When in doubt ask your pastor

    Obedience to God is more than a soldier obeying his commander. It is our grateful response to the Lover of our souls.

    CHURCH: Where worship is enjoyed, not endured - Grace is preached, not legalism - And Christ is exalted, not religion!

      I don't have a pastor other than here. It's more comfortable for me sometimes...

        Why are you not in a healthy church gowing along side other believers?

          This would be a good chance, for those in the know, to post some good verses.

            Purgatory is not mentioned in the bible.

              27 - And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
              I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

                Beilieve it or not. You can't ask questions in some churches. You get snarled at or felt like your inconvienienving the pastor or a leader.

                    Paul said for believers to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

                    Jesus taught that the rich man was in torments while Lazurus was in Abrahams bosom. Luke 16. Not in limbo and Abraham said there is no going from there to here. Once you're in hell you do not get out. From hell you are cast into the lake of fire at the GWT judgment.

                      From "discussions" with devout catholics, they say only believers go to purgatory to purge any remaining sin they might have after death. They don't understand how it is a direct assault on the work Christ did on the cross.

                        Actually I have studied comparative religions and there is a similar view in Judaism.

Ultimately, all Jews have portion in the World to Come, as do Righteous Gentiles, non-Jews who observe the Seven Noahide Commandments.

                          I read once were some Catholic give a number of verses that they use to support this belief, I forget most of them now some are from the deuterocanonical books. The ones I vaguely remember are Isaiah6:4-7, Luke12:47-48, 1Corinthians3:15.

                            I was going to say if the Roman Catholic Church uses any scripture I would guess it to be I Corinthians 3:15. But you would have to extrapolate a whole lot to get purgatory from that verse.

                              It is taught in the second book of Macabees. Of course Macabees is an apocryphal book and not recognised as scripture by much of the protestant church.
