First round is acceptance. Rounds 2-5 are arguments and counter-arguments. Please don't make your argument extremely long as to bore the readers. This debate is for Catholics who believe in purgatory.

First, let's define Purgatory.

Purgatory: (in Roman Catholic doctrine) a place or state of suffering inhabited by the souls of sinners who are expiating their sins before going to heaven.

I will firstly state my three arguments and expand them later on.

1) There is no evidence in the Bible that proves or supports the idea of purgatory.

2) There are many verses in the Bible that disprove and oppose purgatory.

3) Purgatory contradicts the core doctrine of salvation in the Christian faith.

If you don't want your opponent to make long arguments, you have can adjust the maximum characters for each round to limit how long their arguments can be.
