Purgatory a place for completion of sanctification?
Is the doctrine of purgatory valid? rather than a place of punishment until the dues are paid! could, it be a place where God completes our sanctification rather than a place of limbo.
Jerry Walls a well known Arminian professor talks here about his book.

NO!

The idea of purgatory is heretical, because it denies the finished work of Christ at the cross.

And sanctification cannot be "incomplete." God has either separated you, or hasn't.

I posted this, as a provocation for discussion as a good friend of mine who would consider himself a follower of Christ, not Mary or any saint and He considers himself a born again Roman catholic. He sincerily believes that purgatory is Hades mentioned in the bible. That the dead are there awaiting the final judgment.
I like Jerry walls and his book 'why I am not a calvinist' and only recently saw his you tube clip. I havnt read his purgatory book yet.

That's not the same thing as purgatory, and definitely not a place for "sanctification".

It is appointed unto men once to die, and then comes the judgment. Not a holding cell where you get cleaned up.

Haven't read any of his works, but purgatory is indefensible biblically.
