In St. Paul's First Letter to the Thessalonians, he proclaims to them that Jesus' saving death and resurrection is the basis of their hope of salvation for Christians who have died in Jesus. For they have merited salvation through their participation in the saving merits of Christ's death. According to Paul, this salvation for Christians who have died in Christ will, first of all, include the salvation of their soul at the particular judgment in the afterlife through heavenly glorification. This may require purification from venial sin or temporal punishment in preparation for heavenly glory. Secondly, St. Paul also teaches that salvation for Christians who have died in Christ will also include their glorious resurrection from the dead at the general judgment. This is the received Catholic teaching. At the same time, some Christian traditions reduce or define salvation in Christ merely as glorious resurrection at the general judgment. In their understanding, there is no salvation in the afterlife for the soul. The soul more or less ceases to be in death. There is no life of glory for the soul in the afterlife for them. What are your thoughts? Please consider reading an article I wrote about this subject @ PreachMyPsalter.com. I especially welcome Christians from other traditions to participate. Afterwards you may have questions, thoughts, difficulties or objections. I welcome them. Friar Mariano D. Veliz, O.P.
