7. ...

A soul that finds itself unrepentant in the place/state of 'not eternal bliss', is still afforded prayers for continued 'mercy'.

Those who receive the state of 'rest' in Christ, also continue to be afforded prayers that any 'sins' of commission or omission not confessed before dying are considered in a merciful way.

As I said, our belief is that 'God' is present in Heaven and also in 'not Heaven', and is experienced by them who are in those two very different states.

Heaven and 'hell' are not necessarily geographical places, but states of being.

I'm quite comfortable with my Tradition of Faith. One either accepts, embraces and partakes of Christianity--or not.

I am not equipped to offer deeper theological answers like I said.
