I agree with BroRog. Because, we need to understand 1 Cor. 3:15, by read the context of the first part of chapter 3 before we get arrive at verse 15. The context of verse 4 thru verse 15 talking about Paul and Apollos as leaders, well apply to pastors. Leaders' works of their foundation(congregation), that their works shall be test by fire, and their works shall be revealed in the day of the judgment seat of Christ. This passage is not discuss about sins nothing at all. This passage discuss about leaders' works shall be reveal by fire, to show their works are success or failure. My understanding, their works shall be burned as fading away, but leaders' flesh(body) shall be save.
By the way, I do not agree with some Seventh Day Adventists believe unbelievers' body shall be destroyed and stopped being exist in the lake of fire. Because, their souls shall always remain living forever and evenr in either final destiny - eternal life with Christ, or eternal in lake of fire.
Also, look next verse - 1 Cor. 3:16 says, if anyone defile his body, because their boy is belong to YHWH's as temple. If they defile their body, then YHWH shall destroy their spirit. Means, that there shall beno longer belong to YHWH's, their soul & body both shall be end up in lake of fire, without having YHWH's spirit. Also, 1 Cor. 3:16 according to 1 Cor. 5:5 telling the same thing.
Paul reaffirms his teaching on this matter in 2 Cor 5:10 I guess the Corinthians didn't get it on the first pass.
The judgment seat of Christ is for Christians it is not the Great White Throne where the lost are judged and cast into the lake of fire.
For the cause of Christ
*bump* I would like to hear Gadgteer's comment on 1 Cor. 3:15. Thanks.
I agree with Butch5's comment.
1 Cor. 3:15 deals with teachers, leaders, and pastors only. Because of the key is CONTEXT. The only way to understand 1 Cor. 3:15, have to read throughout whole chapter 3 as contextually. Notice verse 5, Paul said, "Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?"
1 Cor. 3:11-15 was written for teachers, leaders, pastors only. So, this passage is not discuss on either NOSAS or OSAS either. It talks about leaders' work or ministry. Either their ministry is success or fail.
Do you agree with me or not?
