I am not sure if this is the right place to post this :o Here it goes.
When we are born we have original sin, we get baptized and that is erased, right?
Then we go to the Sacrament of penance, confess, get absolved. First Holy Communion.
Then later on, as we sin again, we go to confession & get absolution. If we were to die
right after our last confession, got absolved, that means we should go straight to heaven, right? Then, why do some people say we need to go to purgatory?
Someone else asked me this & I could not answer it :o If we are still going to get judged & punished in purgatory, then what is the point of confessing & getting absolved? “That was how they put the question to me” Please explain in detail, so I can understand & explain it to them. Thanks in advance. God bless.
