      would we know it if we were already there?

        It seems that God is big on not letting the left hand know what the right hand is doing.

          been under the weather for a couple of days  sorry  AGAIN for the time lapses between posts.

            Regardless of what it is that we are trying to "fix" (?) I was taught to look for the easiest/simplest answer first, and then progress to the more complicated stuff as needed.
             When we reject the right answer too quickly (However how simple) and continue searching; confusion is certain to follow.

             At least; that is what I was told ??

      Of course I do.  I watched a movie a long time ago where Clint Eastwood went to Purgatory.  He killed whole gang of bad guys all by himself.

    No. It's just as fictional as "hell" and "heaven". lol

    I'm fascinated by the Catholic version of Purgatory, where the only way you ever get out is if living people pray for you.  If that's true, I'm pretty sure I won't have enough friends when I die to make that happen.

    Any Catholic people please feel free to better illuminate my lame attempt at describing Catholic Purgatory.

    Purgatory... that's a town in Colorado if I remember right...  In La Plata County.

    The Other one however is just a money making scheme of a certain religious organization and has no Biblical foundation whatsoever.  In fact it is contrary to what the Bible teaches.  Yes they do try to twist a couple of verses here and there for substantiation.. But if you read them in context.. they just do not fit.  You either get saved while you have the CHance in this life... or you die in your sins and are cast into Hell to await the final judgement.
