Furthermore no where does the Bible say fire takes away sins

Where does the Catholic Church teach that fire takes away sins?

And do not say Purgatory, because that is not what Purgatory is.[/quote:ie40h0nn]

Yet earlier asuncertain drummer said:
I really don’t even understand the purpose of this post. Purgatory most certainly doesn’t go against any Biblical teaching. Indeed, if one were to look up 1 Cor 3: 10-15, one would find a rather concise explanation of purgatory [/quote:ie40h0nn]
Which is it? Does not 1 Cor 3:15 talk of: [color=red:ie40h0nn]If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. [/color:ie40h0nn]
