MYTH #5 Purgatory is found no where in the bible

Like "Trinity", the word "Purgatory" is not found in the bible but the belief or purgatory is.

Purgatory exists not only in Catholic Belief but the Jews and Muslims also believe in a place of cleansing.


Zechariah 13:9 I will bring the one third through fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and I will test them as gold is tested. They shall call upon my name, and I will hear them. I will say, "They are my people," and they shall say, "The LORD is my God."

Malachi 3:2 And who shall be able to think of the day of his coming? and who shall stand to see him? for he is like a refining fire, and like the fuller's herb:

Malachi 3:3 And he shall sit refining and cleansing the silver, and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and shall refine them as gold, and as silver, and they shall offer sacrifices to the Lord in justice.


1Corinthians 3:12 Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,

1Corinthians 3:13 each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work.

1Corinthians 3:14 If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward.

1Corinthians 3:15 If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

Revelation 21:27 and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Mt 12:36 - account for every idle word on judgment day
2Macc 12:44-46 - atoned for dead to free them from sin
1Cor 3:15 - suffer loss, but saved as through fire
1Pet 3:18-20; 4:6 - Jesus preached to spirits in prison

The "catholic encyclopedia" is not offical Church doctrine. On top of that the website you posted is not Catholic.

Have any offical doctrine? How about from the catechism?
