What Shall I Do To Be Saved?

By Rev. Dr. Curian Kaniyamparambil

Question 107. What is the state of those who died in Jesus Christ?

Let us see, where the living Christians are?

In short St. John who received his revelations from God has taught us the following:

Polycarp (AD 69-155) was a disciple of St. John and the bishop of Smyrna. He was martyred. At that time, the church in Smyrna sent a letter to the Christians in Philominon. Here is a quote from his letter:

He was not only a famous teacher, but also an outstanding witness, and thus gained the imperishable crown. Now with the apostles and all the just, he is glorifying God and the Father almighty, and he is blessing our Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of our souls, the Helmsman of our bodies, and the Shepherd of the Catholic Church throughout the world.
