The problem with purgatory
Is the lie that somebody else
Set the exchange rate
Between sin and suffering.
Those who do not understand what they have done.
They will walk away only thinking it ever began at all.
They will still carry it on their shoulders.
The debt apparently paid, the account is cleared to rack up more debt.
And those who are beginning to understand.
They will never walk out of the place at all.
They wil withstand the sufferings forever.
Waiting for their account to flow into black.
The problem with purgatory is that it’s not the suffering that’s redemptive.
Its what we do in the quiet aftermath.
It’s how we move foreward that matters.
And purgatory offers us this lovely chance to wait there forever.
