Cor 3:15 but the just man may be saved but through FIRE
Isaiah 4:4When the Lord shall have washed away the fifth from the daughter's of Zion and cleansed the bloodstains of Jerusalem from its midst by a spirit of judgement and a Spirit of burning.
Hebrews 12:14so therefore strive with peace for all men and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord and because we can't see God even unless we are Holy, Heb 12:14(even as Christ has died for us)
Isaiah 6,5:7
and I said woe is me for I am lost, for I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips for my eyes have seen the King the Lord of hosts*then flew a seraphim to me having in his hand a burning coal which he had taken with tongs from the Altar, and he touched my mouth and said* behold this has touched your lips, your guilt is taken, away and your sins are forgiven 1cor3:15 If a man's work is burned up he shall suffer loss, though he himself will be saved but only through FIRE.Heb 12:13 enrolled in heaven and to a judge who is God of all and to spirits of just men made PERFECT. St Paul states that the works of the individual and the person will go through a cleansing fire, that he might finally be saved and enter into the joy of the Lord. The Lord Jesus died on the cross that our sins may be forgiven, these are the sins we carry on our souls from our ancestors that are removed through baptism. There are many sins we commit everyday of our lives, pride, envy, gluttony, selfishness, idolatry, laziness, immoral thoughts, lust, etc. 99% of us even having made a perfect act of contrition before we die, are far from perfect, because we are human and we continue to make mistakes. God's judgement is Justice, he forgives definetly but we still need to atone for every wrong choice, every person we have hurt, every good deed we should have done but chose not too.Every time we turned our back on the Lord. Everytime we failed to thank him for blessing us. Everytime we were to lazy to get down on our knees and pray to him daily. Everytime we had the opportunity to help someone but didn't. Everytime we got angry. We are imperfect humans and it is not easy to get into heaven as Jesus tells us. We must constantly work on our character defects. What we fail to atone for here we must atone for before we can enter heaven as nothing unclean can enter.After we have been purified through FIRE, not Hell where demons torment souls. We can only then enter heaven. It is unfair to teach people that Jesus died on the cross to forgive all our sins and that all we have to do is be sorry. Where is the Justice in that. If you teach that you are responsible for sending many souls to Hell. Prisoners dont get out of prison just because they are sorry, they must still attone for the harm they have caused. That is Justice.
