I think someone needs to do a little more research.
I've taken philosophy, ethics and religious studies at school and college, and I've read the Bible almost all my life. I think I'm 'qualified' to comment.
Resurrections in the Bible could only be accomplished through God's power. In fact, that's why necromancy is considered so evil. It's because a necromancer would be claiming the power of God if he claimed he could raise the dead.
Yes, that's what I said - I said that an attempt to raise the dead by humans would be 'unGodly' and 'a violation of the divine plan'.
And God raised lots of people from the dead. He raised His Son Jesus from the dead. He raised Lazarus from the dead. Other examples can be found in Ezekiel (the dry bones), and in at least one of the Gospels (immediately after Jesus' death). Among others.
Yes, I know that there are resurrections in the Bible, and they're possible because it's the work of God. I'm talking about resurrection when humans ('necromancers') attempt to carry it out.
As far as purgatory goes, purgatory is not scripturally supported. It is an idea created by man and is a predominantly Catholic belief. It does not permeate all of Christianity.
Yes, I acknowledged that. I said 'if you believe in that'.
Anyway, I don't like where this is heading - religion is always a touchy subject - so I suggest we shift back to the original topic, or take it to private messaging or something before it gets messy (which it may already have done).
