1 Corinthians 3:15 -but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire

De Maria's picture

For Catholics the answer is Purgatory.

What is the answer for Protestants?

1 Corinthians 3:15
If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

The beliefs held to are contradictory to longer believed truths

Which is why papal infallibility violates the creeds of the early church which as well as scripture teaching of one God. Do you hear what you are saying? Now Peter was given a name that signifies God !?!?

Since this passage violates ecumenical infallibility that the church held so long, listen to the Nicene Creed and consider the idea of Peter's name signifying God.

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds; God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made.

Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

And I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

QUOTE: The one to whom Jesus gave the keys to the Kingdom of heaven.END

Which to mean anything you would have to demonstrate the scripturalness of apostolic succession, and precisely what said keys mean in scripture. Particularly since the Living One, who was dead and is alive forevermore, has the keys of death and hades (Rev 1:18).

QUOTE: The one whom Jesus appointed Shepher of His Flock when He said "feed my sheep".END

Jesus sheep were never turned over to another Shepherd
In fact, teh one you assert was appointed Shepherd says,
1 Pet 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
Christ didnt stop being the Good Shepherd (Jn 10) just because He appointed a church government to serve as subordiante shepherds to Him. Shepherds that would enhance Biblical unity by pointing to Jesus and maturing the flock so they would know HIM better (Eph 4:12-15). Shepherds that would point the flock to Christ not worldly fables (mythlike beliefs) fit only for old women (1 Tim 4:7).

In Christ,
