Jimmy Akin on Purgatory

Check out this great new video published by Jimmy Akin on the doctrine of Purgatory.  In it, he exams the common saying that "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord," a phrase that is often used to deny the existence of Purgatory.  However, as Akin shows, this phrase is a misquotation of Scripture.  Other Bible verses (esp. 1 Cor. 3:15) are used to support the doctrine of Purgatory.  Especially interesting is the final section of the video, in with Akin discusses the mistaken notion that Purgatory takes a certain amount of "time" (as in measurable time as experienced by persons before death).
