"and heaven canít be meant, since there is no suffering ("fire") there. The Catholic doctrine of purgatory alone explains this passage."


This claim is false. You are equating the word fire with hell.

"But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap.

"He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord an offering in righteousness." (Malachi 3: 2-3)

"My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives."(Heb. 12: 6)

"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials,

"that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory ot the revelation of Jesus Christ." (1 Peter: 6-7)

Another Protestant heresy, private interpretation of
. The reader gets to decide what every verse
means saying the Holy Spirit guides them. Nonsense, there
are not 30,000 meanings to the Gospel. God gave the
authority to interpret Scripture to the Church. She
canoized Scripture...doesn't it figure? The Bible did
not fall from Heaven complete.

Purgatory is the teaching for 2000 years and before in the
Old Testament, 2 Maccabees. By whose authority do you
declare "fire" does not mean hell or a place of purgation?

Heretical teachihngs, the easy way, "imputation', OSAS, of course you don't understand but do you see we account for all our actions, whether here in this life or over the veil in a final place before Heaven, Purgatory? It use to be
more souls went straight up. The times.

God is perfectly just and perfectly loving.

blessings to you, hf

My Bible has many books by different writers......and 1393 pages of Scripture.

Praying for the dead is not mentioned anywhere.

Christ did not instruct this in the Gospels.

It cannot be confirmed anywhere.

These are the thoughts of a single person.

God is not the author of confusion......and important doctrines are confirmed in many different places.....with different writers.....and even over the course of many years.

To be a Catholic....it would be very difficult to sell to people.....without the notion of purgatory......where people can pay money or pray you out a temporary holding area.....after you are dead.

A help, you said it "many writers." Ah, but only a select
number of writings were chosen, many early Christian writings but only those few were determined to be divinely inspired. Who decided that friend? God's authority on earth, Pope Damasus. He was the first to decide the Canon.

The misuse of indulgences was corrected at the Council of Trent. How many centuries ago...in the 16th century!

You make me laugh to quote the "author of confusion" verse,
oh my, the definition of Protestantism. How many sects
are there?

I'll check for praying for the dead, I gave you Maccabees
Chapter 12 and you reject it. You're a good student of
old Martin Luther. As you keep saying ..."these are the
thoughts of a single person." Why do Christians now think
they are smarter than Chrisians of the past? The Church
knows where the heresies originated.

Jesus speaks of purgation, reparation for our actions.
You think you are the bride already, not accounting for
anything before God bur we must. Stupid heresies. It is God's merciful justice.
