basically, it depends on your religion. Some religion believes only in heaven and hell.. And others think, purgatory is a place where people are cleansed in order to go to heaven. Other religions don't believe in heaven and hell at all.
as for me, i don't believe in purgatory. I'm catholic, and i'm a bit acquainted with "purgatory"....
if there's purgatory.... what's the use of hell? people with mortal sins will get cleansed anyway...

Purgatory is pretty much like Pre-hell lol, which I like to call it Hell.

It's Pre-prison??? when it really is Prison

I mean your getting punish for your sin, and I think thats pretty mess up.
And it's not god's doing it's just people scarrying people

Its Hell, "sorry people" just make up purgatory to say I'm a lesser sinner. Once a sinner always a sinner, a sin is a sin.

if anyone of you a believer 99.999% of all of you are going there that ...0001% was jesus

I know i'm not going to that grey place call Purgatory, I'm going to some place like 50% grey LOL

BTW the life your living could pretty much be Purgatory

The basis of purgatory is that people's souls can be cleansed and go to Heaven. This is actually a later Jewish concept, like pictured in Ezra 4. Although we are talking about Sheol if I remember correctly. Anyways: the catholic church was not the inventor of the concept.

The concept usually allows for repentance, in fact it is mostly essential, and allows for real consciousness, rather than just "eternal bliss" or "eternal pain".

I forgot where I got this information but it said that Earth is a purgatory . It`s why the souls of the dead
wander on Earth . It makes sense . Is purgatory real ? Maybe . It kinda depends on if God exists or not .

I don't believe in hell so why should I believe in purgatory, or limbo for that matter?
