Hi Jac,Jac3510 wrote:So salvation isn't sealed the moment we believe? (2 Cor. 1:21-22; Eph 1:13-14; 4:30) And isn't condemnation already sealed? (John 3:18)Salvation (or lack thereof) is pretty much sealed immediately after death
In all seriousness, how do you mean the above statement? How is our sealing different in death than it was in life?
You misunderstand me (and that's my fault as I evidently did not explain it quite clearly). I'm not saying salvation is determined at death or it must wait until then. What I am saying is that once a person dies the outcome of salvation cannot be changed (with prayers or otherwise). A person is either going to heaven or going to hell. The ones who face Christ (or in purgatory) are the ones going to heaven and those are the ones who may (or may not) benefit from our community prayers. Hope this clears it up.
