Hey, Great site. Thanks for the link.

I’ve been talking with a friend about Purgatory recently and just by skimming through the site for a minute I found a great point the site makes that I never thought of before.

“Since the Gates of Heaven were closed from the time of Adam and Eve, and no one entered, John 3:13, where did all of the Biblical Prophets and heros go until the Gates were reopened at the Crucifixion? Surely they could not have been in hell, as that is permanent and no one leaves there. Moses and Elias appeared to Jesus before the Crucifixion, Matthew 17:3. From where did they come? Limbo? Sheol? Purgatory? There had to have been a third place, right? If there was a third place then, why not a third place now?”

My friend argues against Purgatory by saying only Heaven and Hell are mentioned in the Bible.

I’ll have to see how he responds to this:D

Thanks again.
