Oh, and Christians donít believe it because itís BS.
Um purgatory is not a second chance at salvation. Purgatory is a place where people who are saved go to be cleansed before they enter Heaven. By the way Im not saying I believe in purgatory I just thought it was important that people know what purgatory is before they make a statement like "Oh, and Christians donít believe it because itís BS".
