Open Line, Wednesday - 06/26/2019 - The Doctrine of Purgatory

Often 1 Cor 3:14-15 is used as Catholic proof text for the doctrine of purgatory. There we read, "If the work that anyone has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward. If anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, though he himself will be saved, but only as through fire." In those passages, both individuals are saved, but the former receives a reward, whereas the latter does not, but rather suffers loss. If, as the Catholic church teaches, the reward is attaining heaven, doesn't that necessarily mean that the latter person, having received no reward and suffering loss, is damned?, and more on today's Open Line Wednesday with Fr.

Fr. Wade gives us a teaching on The Ascension of Our Lord Into Heaven...
The Ascension is Christendom’s belief of Christ's going up to Heaven forty days after His Resurrection from the dead. All the creeds affirm the fact, and the Church teaches that Jesus ascended into Heaven in body and soul (Denzinger 801). He ascended into Heaven by His own power: that is, “as God” in divine power and “as Man” in the power of His transfigured soul, which moves His transfigured body at will.
