Help for tomorrow’s study.

Hi Gang,

I am studying with a lady that we taught last year in beginner’s English classes here in Costa Rica.  I am afraid I will be faced with a question brought up incidently in the book we will be studying from (How to Be a True Christian – that is how I am translating it… I don’t know the correct English title).

It brings up the point that there is no purgatory, that when you die or when Jesus comes, our destiny is decided for eternity then. There are no scripture references in the book to back this up, and because this is a Catholic country, I am afraid there will be questions regarding life/afterlife.

Anyone got some quick scriptures I can use to address this subject? I have a few, but I am not sure I am ready to face questions without some extra help.
