    There is no heaven or hell or after life. It's the right now you are living in and you make it or break it. If you don't like what is looking back at you in the mirror and I don't mean just the outer shell you are in hell. If you are happy with what you see and what you feel deep down when you are alone with no distractions you are in heaven.

    There is a “me” in team. Which kind of defeats that adage.

    I learned that purgatory and limbo are not the same thing, due to this thread. I had to look them up.

    Limbo is, technically your screwed, forever.

    Purgatory is those welcome into heaven but uncleansed, unwilling.

    It's a little more complex than that, if only because different branches of Christianity hold varying beliefs. Purgatory is typically considered an opportunity to be cleansed from sin after death, so that one may enter Heaven.

    Of course, neither "Purgatory" nor "Limbo" appear as either words or as concepts within Christian scripture.

    To my knowledge those are strictly Catholic concepts as well.

    Catholic and Orthodox, primarily, although they exist within some non-Christian faith traditions as well.

    While we're talking on the subject of Afterlife matters, anyone wishing to join my little group on that very subject may do so. It is moderated due to some undoubtedly wanting to come in and troll and go haywire on things as they do in this forum. It is a very serious subject I assure you. But if you'd rather just visit then I will be glad to just add things to it and treat it as a blog. Bookmark it. Take a peek and let's discuss there if you wish. All invited!

    Do you believe that a redeemed person's soul immediately transcends to Heaven at the moment of their death? I've always thought that we had to wait for the Judgement Day in order to learn our eternal fate, according to mainstream Christian doctrine.

    Do you reject the concept of the Resurrection?

    I looked at your group.

    This:
    When a person's time has come and they pass away what happens immediately is that their silver cord which is part of that which is spiritual or etheric and is quite long, shiny and pliant and is always attached to the physical body and is about an inch wide suddenly disconnects from their body thus, they leave their Physical Body and immediately step into their Spiritual Body. There is no pain involved in the transition. What happens next is that there is a feeling of ease while traveling through a tunnel with very rapid movement. At the end of the tunnel a bright light can be seen. There will most likely be relatives and loved ones there waiting to meet and greet you.
    is not Christian doctrine. This is Theosophy.

    That is an excellent question! I would love to discuss it with you but after all, that is the whole purpose of my group instead of doing it here. If you like I will be glad to admit you.
