I guess the usual Protestant thought on this is that when we are saved and "die in the Lord" that along with a glorified body we get a glorified character automatically.
Which, as some have pointed out, comes perilously close to salvation-through-good-works. Because, while yes, it's technically the faith that is saving you, that faith is always going to be accompanied by good works.
It's also patently false.

I knew it was too good to last. A thread about what we admire about other traxiry turns into a theological spat ...

Probably should have been started in Heaven, wot?

Purgatory is our serious discussion space – where theological, ethical, political, social and cultural issues are discussed from a Christian perspective. All views are welcome – orthodox, unorthodox, radical or just plain bizarre – so long as you can stand being challenged.

I don't tend to venture into Heaven that often. It's all too restful ...

Perhaps I ought to. Like I ought to preview my posts. Then I wouldn't have 'traxidy' or whatever it was instead of 'tradition'.
