      But purge is in the bible, ok we are purged here an now... Is that a more proper way to explain my peace in this matter?

Some are fearful of baptismal regeneration because they fear adding man's works to their salvation. And, of course, many are superstitious about purgatory because it's Catholic. It is Catholic and it is biblical and it is what Jesus Christ teaches. But because it is Catholic they are afraid of it.
      Baptism is a work done out of faith. I can't find purgatory in the Bible. Used to believe it and also universalism cause Sadhu Sundhar Singh saw that and then I read that although he's dead he visits Todd Bentley. Ehmm maybe his visions weren't so kosher after all.
      I don't care if something is a catholic or reformed teaching if I can find it in the Bible.
      I changed some beliefs. I used to believe election wasn't true. It's in the Bible, so then I dismiss what I've learned.

      I'd say so. You are saying that some punishment for sin occurs here and now and that it can be called a purgation of sorts, but there's no reason to use the word Purgatory since that's a proper noun and refers to a different, more controversial, very specific...and unscriptural theory that was only invented during the Middle Ages. To put it another way, you're not correcting something about Purgatory; you are talking about something that has virtually nothing to do with the "place."

      I'll take that. I'll learn to use "purgation" and indeed sin is evil here and now not after death.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      Todd Bentley is a crazy man heretic.

      I see how our denominations are equal in the body. For instance I see Catholicism as very devote to prayer, Protestant is very devote to keeping Catholicism in check also they keep strict scriptural adherence as Catholicism can help average people unlearned biblically to a fellowship until they become learned, they can decide to stay, leave to protestant or to self proclamations or to Pentecostals who are rejected by protestants and Catholics alike.
      Pentecostals are strictly devoted to worship and praise five times a week and even dispute amongst themselves to keep check within this black sheep view of apostolic ministry. Opinions will vary...
      The Church of Christ is not to be divided upon lines of important doctrine, such as God's 10 Holy Commandments. Christ's church is small in these remaining days of life on earth. The Pharisees, Saducees, Scribes, and Lawyers might have all united, but they were not united in Christ, but rather against Him. It is extremely important to understand the truth as it is in Christ Jesus. The idols that are set up, and are bowed down to need to be removed. If we want a reformation, it has to be a true reformation. God's Law must be exalted. The true 7th Day Sabbath must also be kept, instead of SUNday, which is not the Christian Sabbath.

      What do you mean by Reformation?
