I was visiting my parents home yesterday and they are very much Catholic. They had the Catholic radio station on and I couldn't help but to listen to this talk show. The topic of the talk show was purgatory. I didn't listen to a whole lot of it because I was busy. I don't feel like I can discuss things to much with my parents or get into any heavy dialogue with them. They are very sensitive when it comes to their Catholic faith and they are up there in years. What I had gotten from this radio show, was that Catholics still really believe in purgatory and that saints and relatives can pray one out of purgatory. This is nowhere in the Bible. Then again, Catholics have two books that we do not have. I don't believe this anyway. Oh yeah, they were talking about the immaculate conception of Mary. I got the impression that they believe Mary was immaculately conceived.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Then he asked: "sirs, what must I do to be saved"?. They told him: "believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved, and thy household".
Jesus saved me.
Jesus is my shepherd!
