3. Purgatory is/was a doctrine added to Roman Catholicism, but not accepted by Eastern Orthodox

Christianity.

Not being harsh or demeaning in having to say that.

Orthodox are admonished to 'judge not'. So we understand and receive what we believe and leave other traditions of faith to themselves.

Once a being reposes/departs, the soul enters into a state according to their acceptance of Christ as Saviour or not. Other factors are in consideration. We do the best we can with what we have knowledge of as far as our Faith practice goes.

Praying for the reposed is recorded in the OT.

Prayers cannot 'save' a soul that has been translated. Only asking that they receive mercy and God's Love no matter where they find themselves.

God is in Heaven and His Presence also in the place 'not the Heavenly realm'.

He is everywhere and fillest all things.

There is no place or state of being where He isn't.

I only know what I know, believe and have experienced during my lifetime. I'm 'lay person'/ekklesia limited of course, and my answers are not based in seminary theological study.
