What about Purgatory?

Roman Catholicism teaches that believers incur debts that must inevitably be discharged in Purgatory “before the gates of heaven can be opened.” While Purgatory is not equivalent to a second chance for unbelievers, it is nonetheless decidedly unbiblical.

Family members and friends wanted to know whether my dad had become a disembodied soul or whether he received his resurrection body the moment he died. First, Scripture clearly refers to the moment of death […]
