Does Purgatory Exist?

Episode 641 Show Notes 

From the Show

The blood of Jesus was sufficient to get us into the presence of God. That is what we rest in, that is our hope; it’s not our righteousness or our suffering.

——Adriel Sanchez

Questions in this Episode

  1. 1. Why did God place the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the garden?

2. Is purgatory a biblical doctrine?

3. Is having a prayer language biblical?

4. Does fasting have to be from all food? In our church we say fasting can be giving up anything that we think we can’t do without. I am a diabetic on insulin so I just fast from all junk food & wheat.

5. Did God know that man would fall into sin?
