Unfortunately this question has some problems that lend itself to answers that don't fit our guidelines. We'll be working to sort those out. Don't be discouraged, we do realize there is a bit of a steep learning curve because this isn't a normal internet forum.

Welcome to Christianity.SE! I'd like to encourage you to continue participating, but as you do please check out our faq and I'd like to specifically point you to some posts on our meta site, particularly this one, which might help clarify some things. One confusing point for most new folks is that we're not really looking for posts that try to forward and defend the "truth" of a matter so much as ones that show what various Christian traditions think of an issue.

@Jas3.1: Completely answering your question is an unreasonable expectation because it's got a dozen different things going on and would require a doctorate thesis on the subject to cover it all. Per my other comment, I think this will be much more useful broken down into pieces.

Secondly, from what I can make out this should probably be split into at least 4 separate questions. The "when" and "why" questions as well as the one about current denominational practices can all stand on their own. Your question about whether it should still be rejected today could be asked, but you should be careful to keep it away from being a truth question.

Aaaaaa, bold blindness! I've seen flashing neon signs that were easier to follow. Seriously the usage of bold here is so distracting I can't concentrate on reading actual sentences. I would suggest that if words need this much formatting help in order to convey the right meaning, you would be better off using different words.

Also, please take the time to capitalize according to standard English usage and maybe break up your post into paragraphs as appropriate. It is very difficult to read in this format.

revised What is the Protestant argument against the doctrine of Purgatory?
"Biblical Basis" questions are basically "truth" questions. Lets not. How do experts in Christian church belief and practice approach this? If that ends up being a Biblical argument, so much the better. However right or wrong answers should boil down to Christian doctrine not right or wrong exegesis

Tailor this to be a question suited for C.SE: about Christian practice, belief, tradition etc.

Just like the version you asked on BH.SE needs to be tweaked for that site, this one needs some adjustment for this site. I'm going to take a stab at editing it for you so perhaps you can learn by example, but this site needs to be less about the text and translation issues (as those are more on topic at Biblical Hermeneutics) and more about Christian doctrine and the beliefs and practices of Christian groups.
