I think purgatory came up to hm as a hope because of an unsaved brother he lost years ago. He's hoping he'll meet him there one day. He doesn't think he's good enough to ever get into heaven and says " I just don't know about this Jesus stuff".

You might tell him to start with the Gospel of John or Romans.
Tell him the truth is, none of us are good enough for heaven. That's why we need Jesus. He paid the penalty for all of our sins......past, present, and future. The Bible says that whosoever
