Daniel: purgatory is a lie
John Gotti ♝: Explain
CyanPhoenix: Are you still arguing with the JW?
Daniel: it's not supported by Scripture
John Gotti ♝: Yes it is
CyanPhoenix: @Callixtus
Daniel: show me
LongSchlongSilver: I'm guessing prot
John Gotti ♝: Purgatory explained:

  1. There will be neither sin nor attachment to sin in heaven (Rev. 21:27 i)
  2. We (at least most of us) are still sinning and are attached to sin at the end of this life ii
  3. Therefore, there must be a period between death and heavenly glory in which the saved are cleansed of sin, as well as their attachment to sin.

And other verses support purgatory:

Daniel: you have no verses to support your 3rd point
Daniel: your basis is an assumption
Daniel: "there must be" according to your faulty logic vii
Daniel: maccabees isn't Scripture
CyanPhoenix: @Callixtus Jesus quotes Psalm 82 because multiple reasons, first the Sanhedrin was held on a similar view of which christians hold about the Church, as a representative of God's on earth, Psalm 82 is understood by most scholars(And Second temple literature) as refring to demonic entities which are called gods, which God allowed to rule over nations after mankind refused to follow him, those entities where guilty of a lot of Sins and were gonna be judged by God himself eventually.
Daniel: 1 cor 3 doesn't say there is this temporary place between this life and the kingdom of God
Daniel: mat 5 doesn't say you can pay that last penny
Daniel: how can I pay for any sins when Christ already paid it all?
CyanPhoenix: People on purgatory don't pay for their own Sins tho on the way that Christ did
CyanPhoenix: -It's less of a paying Sins and more of their soul getting restored and made fit for heaven
Thel Vadamee: Sin is remitted, but due penance is still there
Daniel: luke 12 again doesn't say there is purgatory. You are assuming purgatory and then finding verses that can be twisted to fit along
CyanPhoenix: [1 Corinthians 3:12-15]
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 3:12-15 (King James Version)

¹² Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; ¹³ Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. ¹⁴ If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. ¹⁵ If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.


Contrary to Luke 16:19-31; viii Colossians 2:13-14; ix and 1 John 1:7 x & 9, xi the Catholic Church teaches that there is a temporary place of suffering (due to a lack of a complete cleansing of sin) for those who die "in Christ." xii

John Gotti ♝: Bro my 3rd point logically follows from the 2 premises. And Maccabees is scripture. All of the deuterocanonical scriptures are literally quoted and hinted at in the NT. 1 cor 3 talks about the day of the lord (when you will be judged) where people will suffer loss and still be saved through fire... literally what purgatory is. @Daniel . Matthew 5 literally talks about a prison that you can get out of, until you have repaid the last penny. Luke 12:42-48 is a parable talking about when the Lord returns, there will be people who will be cut in 2 and beaten “many times over” & people who will be beaten “fewer times” for lesser sins. You need to understand the context of these verses to know what they’re talking about. Don’t input Protestant presuppositions into this, just read the verse as it is
Daniel: your logic is bad

Catholics attempt to justify this teaching, which is nowhere taught in the Word of God, with 1 Corinthians 3:15. But, here one's "work" is being burned, not the person. Plus, sin is not in view, but rather attempts in building the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 3:12-17 xiii).

The Catholic's fable of purgatory rejects true faith (and trust) in God's forgiveness (Psalm 103:11-18 xiv). Hebrews 4:11 xv says, "Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest." Catholics do not enter His rest (Hebrews 4:9-10; xvi 1 Peter 1:13 xvii), because they render not the blood of Christ sufficient to completely cleanse them from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 xi). A supposed purgatory awaits them for a final cleansing. For those whose faith is in the finished work of Christ (John 19:30 xviii), the Lord Jesus "has perfected forever those who are being sanctified." (Hebrews 10:14 xix)

John Gotti ♝: Then you would have to say that the logic of the church fathers is bad. Because the early Christians hold to this view @Daniel
Daniel: yes, the early church fathers are in hell for being wicked catholics
John Gotti ♝: LMAO
Thel Vadamee: The synod of hippo is where the biblical canon was compiled, and if you confide in scripture as is it is as doubting the source of water you drink from
Thel Vadamee: You drank from the same source indirectly for years, but only looking at it does it bother you
John Gotti ♝: So you’re telling me that the church has been in apostasy for 1,500 years until the Protestant reformation? Even though Jesus promised that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church?
CyanPhoenix: Yeah Yeah
CyanPhoenix: Apparently Jesus church couldn't stand the onslaught according to you
CyanPhoenix: -Was he also wrong?
Daniel: protestants also go to hell. This is a false dichotomy you have set up, that there are only the two choices of faith
John Gotti ♝: What denomination are you?
CyanPhoenix: For saying the gates of hell wouldn't stand against the church? xx
Daniel: none. I am a saint who fears God and keeps His whole Word.
John Gotti ♝: So you’re non denominational?
Daniel: i don't know of any churches that are in the truth besides the church to which I belong
John Gotti ♝: Which is what
Daniel: "A True Church"
John Gotti ♝: Which is?
Daniel: that's the name of it
Daniel: http://atruechurch.info/

A True Church - Faith and Religion, False Teachers, Biblical Teaching
Beware of false Christianity. John MacArthur is false. Steve Anderson is false. Find teaching you didn't know was in the Bible.

John Gotti ♝: When was it established
Daniel: it's been established from everlasting xxi
John Gotti ♝: So we should have evidence of the Theology that this church holds to in the writings of early Christians then, correct?
Daniel: our beliefs are from Scripture
CyanPhoenix: Early christians weren't perfect on their theology
CyanPhoenix: But arguing that because of that they are going to hell, it's stupid
John Gotti ♝: Sure you can say that, every denomination says that, but do you have writings from early Christians who hold to your church’s theology?
Daniel: ""Early Church Fathers" were Catholic":

In the several volume set entitled The Ante Nicene Fathers edited by Alexander Roberts and James Donaldson (WM B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, Grand Rapids, Michigan), we have a record of the writings of "early church fathers" who are revered by many as godly men. If this record is accurate, in other words, if what is found in these writings is truly what these men believed, then they were deceivers, ungodly men, who in no way should be honored.

CyanPhoenix: You can argue they were wrong, and that's fine, But I don't condemn them on basis of stuff that was out of their range
John Gotti ♝: Like St Polycarp? A student of the apostle John?
CyanPhoenix: -deceivers? on what way?

Polycarp is reported to have lived from 65-155 AD and to have been the bishop of the Catholic Church in Smryna.

Polycarp was one, having in our own times been an apostolic and prophetic teacher, and bishop of the Catholic Church which is in Smyrna. (ibid., p. 42, in the "Martyrdom of Polycarp", chap. XVI).

Do not let anyone deceive you with empty words (2 Peter 2:18 xxii). The "Catholic Church," in the context of this volume, means exactly that, the unholy Roman Catholic Church (e.g., see below, VII Iranaeus).

In Polycarp's epistle to the Philippians, Polycarp writes,

When you can do good, defer it not, because "alms delivers from death". (ibid., p. 35, chap. X)

Paul said,

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:3)

Faith working through love delivers from death (Proverbs 10:2; xxiii 11:4-6, xxiv 18-19; xxv 12:28; xxvi Psalm 16:2; xxvii Galatians 2:20 xxviii), not simply the giving of alms. God's alms, His gift, is what delivers from death (Romans 6:23 xxix).

This same "alms delivers from death" can be found in the Apocrypha in the book of Tobit.

It is better to give alms than to lay up gold: for alms delivers from death, and shall purge away all sin. (Tobit 12:8-9; see also Tobit 4:8-10)

Jesus Christ is the one who purges away all sin (Acts 4:12; xxx 1 John 1:7 x).

John Gotti ♝: @Daniel quit copying and pasting stuff from the internet
John Gotti ♝: Can you even defend your positions on your own
Daniel: it's from our article on the very subject you have presented
Thel Vadamee: >Steven Anderson
Thel Vadamee: Stop hating on based meme pastor
Daniel: My position is defended quite well when we compare what this false saint said to what Scripture says.
CyanPhoenix: As far as I'm concerned the Ante-Nicean father's were mostly consistent with their views with what the bible said
CyanPhoenix: @Daniel And how do you determine what the bible says?
Daniel: I read it. xxxi
CyanPhoenix: -As far as I'm concerned Arians had the same bible than trinitarians
John Gotti ♝: Where did the New Testament come from? Who compiled it? @Daniel
CyanPhoenix: -Who was right?
Daniel: the new testament has always existed from everlasting
John Gotti ♝: No it didn’t
Daniel: [John 1:1]
Scripture: John 1:1 (King James Version)

¹ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

CyanPhoenix: Lol No
CyanPhoenix: The bible is not the Word
John Gotti ♝: The New Testament came from the Catholic Church in 382 at the council of Rome xxxii
CyanPhoenix: What?
Daniel: yes, the Bible is the Word
CyanPhoenix: John 1:1 is talking about Jesus, Man
Daniel: Christ is the Bible
John Gotti ♝: :joy::joy::point_up_2_tone2::point_up_2_tone2:
King Frederick II: I read God :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:
Daniel: "How do you know that Jesus is literally the Bible?"
John Gotti ♝: So the New Testament existed forever? Was Paul writings written on creation day or something?
John Gotti ♝: What are you talking about my guy
John Gotti ♝: You can’t deny simple history
CyanPhoenix: I'm wondering, how do you even decide which books are cannonical? @Daniel
John Gotti ♝: The Catholic Church compiled the new testament in 382 AD
John Gotti ♝: He can’t @CyanPhoenix
John Gotti ♝: It’s impossible for him
Daniel: yes, the whole Bible has always existed from before the world was created
CyanPhoenix: Ah like the Torah?

I'm wondering, how do you even decide which books are cannonical? @Daniel

@CyanPhoenix Everyone knows.
John Gotti ♝: So Paul’s letters existed at the time of Adam and Eve? @Daniel
Daniel: yes, John.
John Gotti ♝: So Paul’s letters existed before he even wrote his letters??
John Gotti ♝: You are sounding ridiculous
John Gotti ♝: Stop copping
CyanPhoenix: @Daniel If everyone knows why did then was so much discussion over books like Enoch?
Daniel: God caused Paul to write what was written.
Daniel: Cyan, because God causes most people to be deceived from seeing the obvious Truth.
John Gotti ♝: And that didn’t happen before the 1st century lmao
CyanPhoenix: OK so apparently God caused people to be deceived over the canonicity of a book which is quoted frequently on the NT
Daniel: John, nontheless, those writings were already in existence
CyanPhoenix: -But it isn't part of the NT, but according to what?
Thel Vadamee: The didn't appear until past 100 AD
John Gotti ♝: No they weren’t what on E A R T H are you talking about
Daniel: the book of enoch is not part of Scripture
CyanPhoenix: Again, Why not?

Do a simple search on the internet and it should soon be apparent there are those who claim that Jude 14-15 xxxiii is a quote taken from the Book of Enoch 1:9. It is also purported that other concepts found in the New Testament were taken from what is today called the Book of Enoch. Further, it is asserted by some that this Book of Enoch was written before the time of Christ, and thus, it is assumed that certain concepts found in the New Testament were retrieved from this Book of Enoch. But, all of this is nothing more than assumption. None of it resides in solid fact.

Nobody alive today was alive back then. Nobody alive today was either there at the writing of the New Testament books to know, nor have they spoken to those who wrote them. xxxiv It is pure presumption.

John Gotti ♝: How do we know that you’re interpretation of scripture is correct? @Daniel
Daniel: compare what I say to what Scripture says
CyanPhoenix: Ok
John Gotti ♝: That’s what everyone says
CyanPhoenix: What did Jesus tell to the Saducees?
Daniel: actually most do not say that
John Gotti ♝: Scripture can be interpreted billions of ways, I can’t just “read scripture” and come up with the exact interpretation you’re giving me
CyanPhoenix: [Matthew 22:29-30]
Scripture: Matthew 22:29-30 (King James Version)

²⁹ Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. ³⁰ For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

John Gotti ♝: You need the church
Daniel: most say things like "as long as we agree on the essentials we will both be saved."
CyanPhoenix: Ok, Why is Jesus quoting from enoch here?
CyanPhoenix: -And if he isn't, then where else do you find this on the OT?
Daniel: Cyan, how can you know such a thing? You assume He's quoting it.
Daniel: i don't need to find something else.
CyanPhoenix: Because he says that is on scripture, but nowhere on the OT it is
Daniel: Scripture makes reference to things we no longer have access to reading
CyanPhoenix: -Like Enoch
Thel Vadamee: Like book of Jasher
CyanPhoenix: Maccabees
CyanPhoenix: Etc.
Daniel: [Joshua 10:13] where can i find this book?
John Gotti ♝: How do you know which books are apart of scripture by using scripture alone? Where in the Bible does it say that the book of revelation should be apart of the Bible?
Scripture: Joshua 10:13 (King James Version)

¹³ And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

Daniel: John, all know. It's self-evident.
CyanPhoenix: It wasn't for the early christians
Daniel: how do you know?
CyanPhoenix: The christians you are condemning as heretics, where the ones defending John as a cannonical book
CyanPhoenix: -By that I mean the gospel of John
John Gotti ♝: Where is it self evident in the Bible that the book of revelation should be apart of the Bible?
Daniel: so? most false churches get most things right. It's the destructive heresies that damn them
John Gotti ♝: Do you not hold to sola scriptura?
CyanPhoenix: Ok so we cherry pick stuff then
Daniel: being self evident means you need look for no other proof besides the thing that is self evident itself
LongSchlongSilver: If Purgatory doesn't exist, then what happens to Christians who die with sin?
John Gotti ♝: That’s [very] circular
Daniel: what do you mean die with sin?
CyanPhoenix: You argue it's evident that the Gospel of John is cannonical, But then you have this christians that disagree about if certain books are cannonical, I don't think every single one of them was a liar.
Daniel: do you think you can be without sin in this world?
LongSchlongSilver: those who died with an unabsolved sin on their soul
Daniel: Cyan, they are false christians who deny the Bible
Daniel: what is unabsolved? like unrepentant?
LongSchlongSilver: if your sin hadn't been absolved, forgiven, if you hadn't repented before you died
John Gotti ♝: Do you hold to the view that the Bible is the only infallible rule of faith? That everything that we believe must be explicitly stated in scripture? @Daniel
Daniel: if you don't repent of sin, you go to hell. Pray that God does not lead you into temptation. xxxv
CyanPhoenix: Ok, You are being Circular as Hell right now, You argue it's evident which books are cannonical, but only for those who already agree with you.
Daniel: John, yes.
Callixtus: What’s the topic
Daniel: Cyan, yes it is circular. You may only believe if God causes you to believe
LongSchlongSilver: what's your denomination Daniel?
Daniel: we're not part of a denomination
John Gotti ♝: @Daniel Okay so do you believe that the book of revelation should be apart of the Bible?
CyanPhoenix: I'm not even Catholic but this arguments are bad
Callixtus: What’s the topic @CyanPhoenix
Daniel: no, revelation should not be apart from the Bible. Revelation is Scripture.
CyanPhoenix: The debate moved upon I think some really wierd form of Sola Scriptura
John Gotti ♝: :man_facepalming_tone1::man_facepalming_tone1:
CyanPhoenix: @Callixtus
Callixtus: Sir, sola scriptura is a false doctrine.
Daniel: "Paul didn't follow sola scriptura. Why should you?"
John Gotti ♝: I’m saying do you believe revelation should be apart of the Bible. Not “from” @Daniel You misrepresented what I asked you
Daniel: John, you wrote it funny. I didn't misrepresent anything. Anyway I answered the question you were asking either way
John Gotti ♝: No, you completely misunderstood what I asked
John Gotti ♝: Let me rephrase it
Daniel: you should re-read what I answered..
CyanPhoenix: He is arguing that it's self evident which books are cannonical, which isn't the case since the NT quotes from plenty of books and traditions which aren't present on the OT.
Callixtus: Protestants are unable to identify what the extent of the canon is. In the 1960’s they wanted to add MLKs letters to a Birmingham jail into the New Testament.
Thel Vadamee: :keked:
Daniel: protestantism leads to hell
John Gotti ♝: @Daniel If you hold to the view that the Bible is the only infallible rule of faith, and that everything that we believe must be explicitly stated in scripture, and if you believe that Revelation is scripture, then where in the Bible does it EXPLICITLY say that Revelation is scripture?
Callixtus: Look it up. It’s a real thing lol
Thel Vadamee: Somebody wanted the coming of Obama added
Thel Vadamee: Kek
Callixtus: Why shouldn’t we add MLK’s letters to the New Testament? @Daniel
Daniel: [Psalm 19:1]
Scripture: Psalm 19:1 (King James Version)

¹ The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

John Gotti ♝: Answer the question @Daniel
Daniel: [John 1:9]
Scripture: John 1:9 (King James Version)

⁹ That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

Daniel: [Romans 1:18-21]
Scripture: Romans 1:18-21 (King James Version)

¹⁸ For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; ¹⁹ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. ²⁰ For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: ²¹ Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

John Gotti ♝: I guess you have nothing else to argue then
Callixtus: Daniel hold this L
Daniel: [Proverbs 2:1-6]
Scripture: Proverbs 2:1-6 (King James Version)

¹ My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; ² So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; ³ Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; ⁴ If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; ⁵ Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. ⁶ For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Callixtus: It’s also interesting to note that the New Testament is largely anonymous
Callixtus: We don’t know who wrote them without the magisterium :slight_smile:
Callixtus: Protestants essentially are unable to prove the preservation of scripture lol
John Gotti ♝: @Daniel Would you like to debate in VC later on tonight
Daniel: no i would not like to do that
John Gotti ♝: Why not
Daniel: i prefer text, and my internet connection does not allow for voice
John Gotti ♝: Huh
John Gotti ♝: Ok

Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 And being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

    24 “Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’

    27 “Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, 28 for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ 29 Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ 31 But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’ ”
