I Don't Believe In Catholic Ways
On whom the Church was founded:
The Apostle Peter himself explained in the Bible on whom the church was founded. He said that Jesus was the cornerstone: "This Jesus is the stone rejected by you the builders which has become the cornerstone. There is no salvation in anyone else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we are to be saved (Acts 4:11-12).

Is Purgatory A Real Place
Lorra, Emcee, I do know about the Catholic Church and it appears more than you do. I don't mean this to your demise, but spiritually, you have no idea what your missing.
Please forgive me, but for the last 2 weeks, I have been preoccupied with a dying friend. You can pray for him, his name is Jimmy, all I ask is to pray to the Father in Jesus name. I will return with more info. Thanks, and God bless

2. Even then, the priest cannot ever say when it is enough! The cry is always for just a few more masses. No wonder purgatory has been called the "goldmine of the priest hood!"
How sweet were the Words of Jesus as he looked at the repentant thief on the adjacent cross and said. "Today shalt thou be with me in Paradise." Luke 23:43

I am no longer a Catholic but I do like the Stations of the Cross. We should remember what Jesus did for us.

Is Purgatory A Real Place
1. As with other teachings of a mystery religion, teachings on purgatory are somewhat confusing. First, Catholics are taught that there are two kinds of sins: mortal and venial. The mortal sins can send them to hell, and the venial sins are easily forgiven. Then they are told that mortal sins have two kinds of punisment: eternal (in hell) and temporal (in purgatory).

2. Even if a priest forgives all mortal sins in confession, and death follows quickly before a Catholic can sin any more, unless the Catholic has performed enough good works and given enough money to his church, he must still go to purgatory for "Temporal" punishment. For the Catholic, Christ's sacfrifice was not enough.

3. If you are confused, that is normal. The effect is to keep Catholics from ever knowing for sure when they or their loved ones will be free from purgatory, THUS INSURING THE CONTINUED FLOW OF CASH TO THE PRIEST TO SAY MORE MASSES TO RELEASE LOVED ONES FROM THE FLAMES!
"The doctrine of purgatory rests on the assumption that while God forgives sin, His justice nevertheless demands that the sinner must suffer the full punishment due to him before he will be allowed to enter heaven."
