1 Cor. 3:10-15 - works are judged after death and tested by fire. Some works are lost, but the person is still saved. Paul is referring to the state of purgation called purgatory. The venial sins (bad works) that were committed are burned up after death, but the person is still brought to salvation. This state after death cannot be heaven (no one with venial sins is present) or hell (there is no forgiveness and salvation).
http://www.scripturecatholic.com/
WORKS are judged after death athe the BEMA SEAT, NOT SINS. Works are never refered to as sins in the scripture. Bad works are those tings christians do which have no eternal value, or things that are done with the wrong motives. Works do not equal sins. Paul is referring to a state of prugation called PURGATORY???? Who says so? There is no such reference anywhere. Just idle speculation. Paul is referring to the Bema Seat of Christ. We can never by suffering or by ANY OTHER means take away our sins. ONLY the sacrifice of a PERFECT SACRIFICE can ever do that. As for me, I will trust in the ONE who has already paid my debt 'in full'. You are trusting in Jesus for a 'partial payment' which really shows a lack of faith in HIM. So you tell me, WHICH SINS DID JESUS PAY FOR?

You should repent. You're a proven liar and bearer of false witness, along with your wife. If you think God will overlook this because it's directed against the Catholic Church, well, I wish you two the very best of luck.

. Ignatius constantly contends for the recognition of the authority of the ministers of the church. "Do nothing", he writes to the Magnesians, "without the bishop and the presbyters." The "three orders" are essential to the church, without them no church is worthy of the name (cf. Trall. 3). "It is not lawful apart from the bishop either to baptize or to hold a love-feast" (Smyrn. 8). Respect is due to the bishop as to God, to the presbyters as the council of God and the college of apostles, to the deacons as to Jesus Christ (Trall. 3). These terms must not, of course, be taken in their developed modern sense. The "bishop" of Ignatius seems to represent the modern pastor of a church.
if number 3 is correct, then we can place no credence in any form that Peter himself ordained ignatius, since that office is one that the chruch itself is involved in, by calling themselves a Pastor.
friends it cant be both ways, if the office of a bishop needed to have an Apostle lay hands on him, then it is more than a Pastorate,
if it is less, then peter was never involved, for what ever reason
preston

I can see that it "seems" like the bishop is like a pastor. But remember in Antioch, Peter(the Apostle) was the first bishop, then assigned Evidius....And Paul(the Apostle) established Ignatius as the 3rd bishop...(Galatians 2:11 puts Paul there.) So the first three are considered Apostolic Fathers of the Church, as they were alive during the time of the Apostles....After that, the Church became more centralised to the teachings of the Apostles, to keep the unity of the faith, otherwise it would have been torn apart. Thus Apostolic Succession took place to do both of these..

After the time of Jesus came the Apostles.

After the time of the Apostles came the "Apostolic Fathers" which merged into Early Church Fathers.

Thus, when Catholics call you names, they call Jesus names too.

Give me a scripture from the Bible that says that I should repent to God for obeying Him...
Correction---for YOU it is called "DISOBEDIENCE".....S o now you are telling me that spreading and preaching division along with condemning, judging, bashing and attacking the faith of other Christians (especially Catholics---(ICor 1:10), James 5:12, I Tim 3:6, Romans 8:1, John 7:24,(these---according to you) IS NOT disobedience to Gods Word, then you must have "thrown those verses" ()along with many others)"conveniently " out of your bible, in order for you to be able to justify your own sin!!!---as Michael would say---"Unbelievable" !!

Well now....WE WILL JUST WAIT AND SEE NOW ....WANT WE?

So far the Roman Catholic Church has 650 years of inquisition

murder,torture, burning at stake, theft of property ...later on..global sodomy...of Children,

pervert/homosexual activity, and just about every sin one can name...

Some how I do not believe God approves of such activity propagated in

His name...

Jesus spoke of the attributes of the one that does the a fore mentioned.

He said

John 10:10 PART A.... The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

his attributes are

Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

It is quite evident that the above are the attributes..of the thief..

___

The church that really represents Jesus Christ followers His attributes

Jesus said of Himself...

He discriminates against no one

for he said ...

Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Mat 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Mat 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

JOHN10:10 part B
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

His attributes are


Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Gal 5:24

NOTE....===> And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.


Again Jesus said

Mat_7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

if I was Jesus, I would contact God the father, and have him contact God the holy spirit, to have my name removed from the church.

Purgatory is still a doctrine of the Church. It's not an "invention" and hasn't been "gotten rid of".
Purgatory IS NOT..NEVER WAS a doctrine of the BIBLE...
THE SEQUENCE OF MANS FATE... IS CLEARLY DEFINED IN GOD'S WORD..
it says
Heb_9:27 And as
1.it is appointed unto men

4. the judgment:
NOW
Prove me wrong
Take the Bible and prove me wrong...
IF YOU CAN?
confrinting good friend

You are wrong....Purgatory is in the Bible. It is a process and not a place....

I Cor 3:11-15

11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;

13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.

15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire."

True Jesus is the foundation.
But we each are not Jesus, and so build, and are rebuilding ourselves according to God's Grace and Will into the likeness of Jesus....

If you think you perfectly fit that image, you may be surprised at how hot it will be when you are tried as by fire....since "every man's work" will be tried.....Purgatory. Plain and simple.

Ps:.....Pope John XXIII began Vatical II. With it came the changes to the performing of Holy Mass. The congregation liked it as now they had a 'face-to-face' contact with the Priest as he carred out the 'Changing of the Bread and Wine into the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Chris'......something you pagans don't have the FAITH to understand.

So it took Pope John XXXIII from 1957 until 1962 how to figure out turning the altar around 180 degrees.....

How about this.
The hirearchy demands their priests and nuns to NEVER MARRY and have CHILDREN so their assets will be willed back to the church.
On the other hand the hirearchy demands catholic followers to GET MARRIED and have LOTS OF BABIES so down the road more children means more money in the collection baskets.
.......and catholics can't see this!
They don't see anything but what they want to.
