One of the many problems with the Catholic beliefs is the view of unrenounced, or unconfessed sin after a person dies.  The Catholic teachings, the catechisms of the Catholic Church, teach that purgatory is the final purification for the christian and the Church plays a role in making a proclamation over the dead person to help them through their fiery journey.  That leaves the door wide open for the person who follows this teaching to allow sin in their life.  It also assumes that the Church has power to change the eternal destiny of someone’s soul after they die.   Friends, the Bible gives us a diferent message that you must choose to believe, or suffer for rejecting.  Only faith in Jesus alone and repentance of sin before you die will secure your place in heaven.   “There is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1Tim.2:5)  No place here for the Catholic belief that the Church has any power.  “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Heb.9:27)  There is no opportunity here for a change of decision after you die.  Jesus warned the religious that if they did not believe in Him they would die in their sins (Jn.8:24).  Jesus said in Luke 24:47 that repentance would be preached in His name.  God help the deceived to hear the Lord calling them to repent and believe only in Jesus and not to put their trust in man.
