Screw You! You can go straight to...Purgatory?

Do you ever notice that Heaven and Hell get alot of press, but you rarely ever hear anything about Purgatory? As for Limbo, people are more likely to think of a dance than a place or a state of being.

I can't help but wonder, is it worse to be told to go to Hell or Purgatory?

There was a comic strip I saw years ago that comes to mind every now and then. It took a position that for one person Hell could be sitting in an airport terminal waiting for a plane that never comes in. I wonder if it's possible that what's Heaven and Hell is the same for everyone or if it's personalized.

This is the point where in a movie the picture goes wavey and we're transported to a scene where a person is about to die and the answer to my question is revealed. Life ain't the movies though and we don't find out the answer until the final bell tolls.

There is one thing for sure. Here today and gone tomorrow doesn't exist. You're here one second and gone the next. So make the most of it while you have the chance.
