Is it right to say when you die you go to heaven or hell or do you wait until the Second Coming?
Easter celebrates Christ’s victory over sin and death; it completes Jesus’ saving act (passion, death and resurrection) on our behalf. The Catholic Church speaks of the particular judgment (as soon as you die) and the general or last judgment(the end of the world). At death a person is immediately judged; his or her soul is assigned to heaven, hell or purgatory.
For people living at the end of the world, the particular and the general judgment will be the same event. For everyone else, these will be separate events. Purgatory ends with the last judgment.
