They later invented tortuous punishments in hell to go along with each sin.. Most likely in an effort to keep that "sin-forgivement" money coming in.. Aka- indulgences.
that's some of the things that we should turn away from here is a other scripture 2 timothy 3:1-5 "But know this,that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.For men will be lovers of themselves,lovers of money,self-assuming,haughty, blasphemers,disobedient to parents,unthankful,disloyal,having no natural affection,not open to any agreement,slanderers,without self-control,fierce,without love of goodness,betrayers,headstrong,puffed up with pride,lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power and from these turn away."
