“Purgatory Isn’t In The Bible”

Have you ever doubted the existence of Purgatory because you’ve been told it’s not in Scripture? Well, Purgatory is in the Bible, and here’s where to find it.

“How can Catholics believe in Purgatory? Is that even in the Bible?”

Like the word “Trinity,” the word “Purgatory” is not in the Bible. However, the Bible emphasizes that we need to be perfectly pure, without a single blemish, to enter God’s kingdom.

Revelation 21:27 states, “But nothing unclean shall enter Heaven.” In 1 Corinthians 3:15, St. Paul writes, “If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but as only through fire.”

According to Dr. Gerard Verschuuren in his book, Forty Anti-Catholic Lies, “For most of us, the transition from a life on earth to a life in Heaven would be… so shocking that we would need some extra preparation time, as nothing unclean can enter the presence of God.”

Indeed, Scripture supports the existence of Purgatory and the fact that we need to go to Purgatory before we enter Heaven.

Check out Dr. Verschuuren’s Forty Anti-Catholic Lies to learn how to combat the anti-Catholic lies you hear and to seek the truth found in the Church.
