I guess bernardine, based on your initial question:
[quote:hvrn3t4v]what do you think God’s purification process is like? Physical pain? Mental anguish? What do YOU think?[/quote:hvrn3t4v]
I think that the passage we discussed does not address this quesiton. The fire is a means of describing the trials that will face us to prove if we have received good instruction after knowing the fundamentals about our faith. So, no, the fire of 1 Cor 3:15 is not about the fire of God’s love.
