The Vatican teach that Catholics can not be sure of salvation in this life. They have to await purification for their sins till after they have departed, in a place not mentioned in the Bible.
The Doctrine of Purgatory is nullifying the purification for sins done by Jesus on the cross at Calvary Hill. The Bible says that the blood of Jesus has redeemed us from the stains and guilt of sins. People who believe in the cleansing blood of the Messiah are saved. Today.
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.
He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.
The Roman Catholic Church do not agree. The Papal priests tells the faithful they can not be sure of such purification in this life. The final purification will take place after the soul has departed into a place called Purgatory. This word is not mentioned in the Bible, nor is any doctrine of an after-life purification from sins Biblical.
But the Papal doctrine of Purgatory is a money making machine for the Vatican. Because by giving offerings to the Church, so-called indulgences, the family of the departed soul can gain some speed in the soul cleansing process in Purgatory.
From the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church:
1498 Through indulgences the faithful can obtain the remission of temporal punishment resulting from sin for themselves and also for the souls in Purgatory.
Faithful Catholics are told by their priests to keep on praying for the cleansing of the departed soul, and to give Church donations in form of remembering masses. The priest can neither give any assurances of when the departed soul will leave, not have left Purgatory for Heaven. This has led many Catholics to hold such masses for 20 to 30 years.
The doctrine of Purgatory, and the doctrine of confession to a Catholic priest, leads the Roman Catholics into spiritual slavery. Because the Papal promoted logic is that a man that has committed «many» sins, needs extra time for cleansing in Purgatory. So a priest that have kept a long «confession list» from a departed soul, can raise a lot of funds from the the mans family.
The Church of Rome de facto feed it self on sins.
The more sins the Catholics commits and confesses, the more funds the Church can raise, simply by explaining that plenty of indulgences are needed for the purification in Purgatory.
The Vatican is no longer «able» to start to teach the Gospel correctly. Because if enough Catholics are saved, and automatically turns away from sins, this worldly man made religious system would go bankrupt.
This is the truth about the tragic affairs of the false Church of Rome.
