Our Catholic faith teaches us that if we die with an unrepentant mortal sin upon our soul, we will be lost to the fires of hell. If we die in God’s friendship, we will be with Him in heaven forever but may be first required to be purged of our attachment to sin in purgatory.
That said, where are we judged by God before being sent off to our destination?
Heaven? That might be the place for those that are going to heaven but the ones who are going to hell will never see heaven so they can’t be judged in heaven.
Hell for those going to hell? Well, by definition, hell is the absence of God so if God were to enter hell, it would no longer be hell.
Purgatory for those going to purgatory? According to Our Lady, no person of the Trinity enters into purgatory.
That pretty much excludes everything. So, anybody have any ideas where our final judgement might take place?
