17. No really, I'm confused.
I was raised Catholic, and was taught that all of these things--Purgatory in particular--were real places. Now, the Church will decide if Limbo still exists? How can that be? If God created something, either it exists or it doesn't.

I'm no longer in the Church, but stuff like this bothers me. Either God created something, and time will decide when he will announce that Limbo's no longer there, or these are merely creations to fufill some earthly purpose. If the latter is true, where does it stop?

How can you maintain a mystical organization if you change the mythology so radically?

I don't get it.
