Some of our Christian brothers and sisters are convinced that unless if something isn’t explicitly stated in scripture, it’s not there.. well some of it, anyway well, to be fair if you are taught to read scripture like that, you won’t find purgatory in the Bible. It’s one thing to not know the complete truth, then to know it and still pretend it’s not the truth, unless you have a really good argument, and I mean a really good argument. Personally, as a child of God, I’d like to think he’s much more merciful than what most other Christian churches believe, and I have just come to the belief that he is. He’s a loving father, he’s our creator, he’s God.
