Asked in Christianity, Catholicism, Heaven and Hell
What was a place for souls not yet worthy of heaven but not meant for hell?
For Catholics the place is called purgatory. Souls wait there, atone for their wicked ways before entering heaven. Protestants believe in a similar place but it is refered to as Abraham's Bosom. This Bosom is directly opposite of Sheol or Hades as it is sometimes called, divided by a great chasm that cannot be crossed from either way. The Gospels tell of Jesus' desent into hell and retrieving waiting souls from the Bosom before sending them to heaven. Whoever now is in Abraham's Bosom waiting came after Christ's death.

What does purgatory mean?
It means when a soul dies and has not had the last rites they slip into purgatory which is neither hell nor heaven. Purgatory can be looked on as a temporary hell where a soul suffers for its unforgiven sins and then goes on to heaven. It's a Roman Catholic concept. Its a place where you go after you die if you are not worthy to get into Heaven yet, but not bad enough to go to hell
Asked in The Bible
Who were the only ones in Bible caught up to heaven?
The Bible has the term 'heaven' referring to 3 places: the sky above, space, and the 3rd Heaven or highest one where the Throne of God is (2 Corinthians 12:2). You then are referring to Enoch and Elijah who were taken away (transported) to another place for safety via the 1st heaven or sky. Only Jesus was worthy to ascend back into heaven (see John 3:13).
Asked in Catholicism
Do you go to heaven after purgatory?
Opinion Yes, when a soul enters purgatory it begins the cleansing process, (removal of sins) so the soul can be purely good and so worthy to be entirely in God's presence (heaven). In other words a soul in heaven is guarenteed a place in heaven. Opinion Some churches believe that Purgatory is a temporary state before you can go to heaven. While some other churches believe that it is a place for those not good enough for heaven, but too good for hell; and once in purgatory you remain there indefinitely. Other churches do not believe there is a purgatory at all; they believe that after death people go directly to heaven or hell depending on how God judges them.
