Therefore I claim that the pope has no jurisdiction over Purgatory... If the pope does have power to release anyone from Purgatory, why in the name of love does he not abolish Purgatory by letting everyone out? If for the sake of miserable money he released uncounted souls, why should he not for the sake of most holy love empty the place? To say that souls are liberated from Purgatory is audacious. To say they are released as soon as the coffer rings is to incite avarice. The pope would do better to give everything away without charge."
Dr. Nichols: I have enjoyed your books,especially the little yellow covered book, The Reformation. I am enjoying your 5 minutes of church history. I am a loyal listener of the Ligonier presentations of Dr. Sproul and the TableTalk magazine. I also have enjoyed the books of Dr. Steven Lawson which I have purchased and read through the Ligonier program. I would like to receive your 5 minutes of church history to my online email. George J.
