Have you ever seen these verses in Scripture? To what do you think they refer?
1 Corinthians 3:15
King James Version (KJV)
15If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Saved by fire? What? How is it that the righteous are burned?
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life
What do you call this place where the just go to be purified by fire? We call it Purgatory.
