Google Search #7 "Why do Catholics...Believe in Purgatory?"

This is the third in a series of articles which are based on the top 9 google searches which come after "Why do Catholics..." in the search suggestions. I start at the ninth and will work my way to #1. If you have follow-up questions or comments, please post them below.

The topic of today's blog is "Why do Catholics Believe in Purgatory?"

A lot of people have issues with the Catholic idea of purgatory. Now first of all if you look at history most Church fathers believed in purgatory if not all of them. It actually comes from Jewish belief about purification after death. But beyond the biblical and historical proof for the truth of purgatory I think we need to look at common sense. As we know in the Bible in many places it says that nothing imperfect can enter into the kingdom of heaven. It seems a little bit strips that if nothing can enter Heaven that is not perfect that God wouldn't give us some method to be purified before we entered into heaven. Therefore it only seems logical that human beings with minor flaws remaining would have some way of erasing these flaws before entering into a place where everything must be perfect. I would love to know what you think about on this subject. Please leave your comments below.

Please check out the following link for further information about proof for the existence of purgatory. I think it's possible that the article might be a little bit strongly-worded. But if so please try to overlook that. Thank you.
