Episode 72: A Catholic and Protestant talk about Purgatory and Indulgences

Episode 72: A Catholic and Protestant talk about Purgatory and Indulgences

What is the doctrine of Purgatory? Why don’t Protestants affirm this belief? Does Purgatory mean Christ’s sacrifice was not sufficient? Listen in as we discuss Catholic vs. Protestant perspectives on Purgatory!

For the sake of a good-faith discussion, we’ll discuss the official teaching and belief of the Catholic Church, not the various abuses and misuses throughout history since those don’t represent current official Catholic doctrines. The historical view/practice of Purgatory would be a video all to itself with how large that topic can be.

Our podcast was born from our friendship. We are two people with very different beliefs, yet a shared desire to have understanding and unity! We love to have good natured “Catholic vs. Protestant” conversations to bridge the gap between our faith traditions. On this podcast, we talk about real and difficult topics such as mental health, faith, sex, shame, and more to cultivate a space where we can all just talk about it. In a culture of social media outrage, division, and “canceling”, we want to create an environment in which we can have fruitful discussion & disagreement.
