Apostle Peter says that false teachers would even deny the Lord that “bought them.” This brings in another doctrine of Rome (men) that evolved, the heresy of purgatory. By the Truth of God’s word, we know that Jesus “purged” our sins and purifies us from ALL unrighteousness. (Heb.1:3/ 1 John 1:9)
Obviously rome denies the Lord that bought them and teaches traditions men that they can purge their sins in the fires of purgatory. See #1472 catechism of the roman catholic church
Sin deprives us of communion with God and therefore makes us incapable of eternal life, the privation of which is call the ‘eternal punishment’ of sins. On the other hand every sin, even venial, entails an unhealthy attachment to creatures, which must be purified either here on earth, or after death in the state called Purgatory. This purification frees one from what is called the temporal punishment of sin.” #1472 catholic dogma
Catholicism actually teaches that a man or woman may purchase a Mass to be said for a family member in purgatory for a mere $25. Hmmmm ?
No guarantee that the Mass you purchased goes to your loved one. This makes one to continue buy masses for the dead . A merchandise of scripture. God has warned us through the scriptures by Peter about the merchandise of scripture
“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” (2 Peter 2:3)
God’s instructions say repent. One does this when they are still alive!
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord
