Jesus willingly died for the believers sins; He died in our place to pay the debt that we could never pay. Who
his own self bare the believers sins in his own body on the tree, that
we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose
stripes ye were healed (I Peter 2:24). How devastating it is
that Catholics trust in a place not mentioned in Scripture, but which
they call Purgatory. They are taught to trust that somehow they
can through suffering be purified enough to achieve the holiness
necessary to enter heaven.
For true believers the one-time sacrifice of Christ Jesus is sufficient to pay for all sin. He appeared to take away sins once for all (Hebrews 9:26). He is the One Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood. (Romans 3:25). The Scriptures make clear that the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
(Romans 6:23). Those that have not received eternal life face
final judgment and hell. Biblically there is no in-between state
for the soul, as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27).
