It is easier to do the sin again.
We go straight to hell.
We become much better people
More focused on earthly things in an unhealthy way.
Nothing but damnation.
The increased likelihood of sinning the same way again.
An increased earthly attachment
A tendency away from God
A greater love fro God
To overcome the temporal effects of sin, including helping to strengthen the character weakened by sin.
To cooperate with grace in the struggle for holiness
To earn the grace necessary for forgiveness.
To prove to God that we can be good on our own.
It is where we are healed from the temporal effects of our sins.
Getting the forgiveness of our sins that we never really got on earth
Seeing if we really deserve heaven, after all.
Being purified from the wounds that our sins caused in us before seeing God.
Earn our way to heaven
Make money for the Vatican
Buying sanctifying grace
Stations of the cross
Going to a movie
Having a good dinner.
Heal the temporal consequences of sin.
Put ourselves into a state of sanctifying grace.
The 7 sacraments.
Believing that God made the world.
Making a living.
