My warm greetings and twale to you brethren reading this blog, please know that amakvitaa is not just writing out of knowledge but also out of inspiration, and i was moved to write this when a recent argument sprang up amongst believers about the validity of the Purgatory.
the bible, the Qur’an and other holy writings speak about two destinations of man after death, heaven or hell, and believe me it is the truth.
So how did this understanding of purgatory came about?, from the holy Qur’an “no unclean man shall see GOD “,from the holy bible “all have sin and come short of the glory of GOD”, it also says “some will be saved as though they have passed through a fire (Purgatory)”.
So, comparing these two holy scriptures, this is certain, that everyone have sined graviously and despite forgiveness, all have come short of the glory of GOD, also, that no unclean man shall see God, so does that mean no man shall see God?, certainly no, again it says that some will be saved as they that have passed through the fire. this is how the idea of Purgatory came about.
Purgatory not a place neither is it a destination, but rather it is a passage of suffering through which the righteous whom have come short of the glory of God can be saved.
It is just like someone who wrote an entrance examination into a university, but because he did not reach the score they demanded, he will have to go through a one year preliminary, after which he can be granted admission.
That is just what purgatory is all about, so don’t get yourself confused by false doctrines. This is the truth, you can call purgatory whatever you want, to me it is a passage.
Well, it seems most people don’t believe in purgatory, maybe because they do not fully understand, but let me ask you, do you think you are holy enough to enter heaven without being cleansed in that passage?, its yours to answer.
In conclusion, we should not even think passing through that fire, cos heaven is our goal and i will be glad to see you there. I have written a letter to the un-believers , telling them about the validity of the existence of God.
Always remember you read it first from amakvitaa.
