Catholic Apologetics: Purgatory
Purgatory - Does a cleansing state of the soul exist before entering Heaven for those who need it? Yes, for Scripture says nothing unclean or impure will enter into the kingdom of Heaven (Revelations 21:27). St. Paul mentions the saving of a person's soul, but through fire (1 Corinthians 3:13-15). In addition, Jesus mentions being forgiven for sins in the next world (Matthew 12:32) and that we shall not be released until we have paid for all our sins (Luke 12:59).
