thanks for sharing....people need to fully understand the existence of purgatory and essential how by God's graces he allows mankind the opportunity to purge themselves in order to be with him.


I do think that it is a state of existence and their are different levels of purgatory. Its all dependent on one's condition when they die.

Here is something I posted a long time ago:

Let me approach this in a way that uses terms we all know:
God is a consuming fire. In fact the word Seraphim actually comes from the Hebrew which means the "burning" ones. They burn with the flame that is God because they are near God.

This is why nothing unclean can enter heaven. It would burn away in a flash in the presence of God. You can think of Purgatory as the fire of God's love. When you die and stand before God, whatever imperfections are left in you, whatever inclinations to sin you were not able to master in this life, all this will be burned - "purged" - away in the fire of Gods love. There's an old children's song, "God loves you just the way you are, but much too much to let you stay that way." Out of the mouths of babes.......

Picture the sequence: You become a Christian, and through your life you grow, in holiness and sanctification. You sin less and less as the years pass. Just before you die, you have run a good race, but you are not yet perfect. Then you pass from this realm and stand before God, and WHOOSSHHHH, that last bit of imperfection is blasted away from you when you come into the presence of a perfection that our mortal minds cannot even fathom.

This is Purgatory: Not a place, not a second chance, but the fire of the love of the almighty eternal God.

dExactly....after you die and YOU KNOW that you are not ready for heaven for heaven is a place where no sin can exist or even the stain of sin. Those stains MUST be purged in God's fire of love before enterance to heaven is allowed. There are many ways here on earth that the stain of sin can be removed. Confession, good works, indulgences, living a Christ like life....etc.

Purgatory does exist and there are many levels that exist depending on that persons status at death. Pray...pray....pray
