WHAT HAPPENS AFTER DEATH
Generally people shy away from the thought of death, but it is vital to know the truth as to what happens after death. The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church has always taught all that Christ and the Apostles and Holy Fathers taught. There are only two places to where we our souls can go after death, a place of repose in heaven and everlasting life, or Hades awaiting Gehenna. The souls will not be on one level in either place, but each will be placed according to what he has done. Christ mentions that in His Father’s house are many mansions. Each soul, according to its worthiness of reward, will be in its proper place. Those who have done evil will be in a different place suffering torment according to the gravity of their sins. Also, some of the souls which have not committed a sin that is unto death, and who repented before death, but had no opportunity to bring forth fruits of repentance, are helped by the prayers of the church.
The Roman Catholics or Papacy, after separation from the Church, invented for the sake of filthy lucre, a third place which they called Purgatory, which the Papacy defines as follows: "Purgatory is a state of suffering after this life, in which those souls are for a time detained who depart this life after their deadly sins have been remitted as to the stain and guilt, and as to everlasting pain that was due them; but who have, on account of those sins, still some debt of a temporal punishment to pay; as also those who leave this world guilty only of venial sins. In purgatory those souls are purified and rendered fit to enter into the kingdom of heaven, where nothing defiled enters."
