Have you been Saved? Adult Ed: Oct. 21

Have you been Saved? Adult Ed: Oct. 21

What must I do to be saved? Someone asked Jesus that question. Jesus told him to keep the Commandments — and if he felt he could do even more, to give his possessions to the poor and live like Jesus. See Matt. 19:16-21, Mark 10:17-21, Luke 18:18-22. Jesus also preached that Heaven goes to those who help others. See Matt. 25:33-46. Doesn’t the Bible say we are saved by faith alone? No. Nowhere. No way. Then why do so … Read entire article »

The Bible: Adult Education Class on Oct. 14

The Bible: Adult Education Class on Oct. 14

Is Scripture alone enough? No, In fact, Scripture itself says Scripture alone is not enough.   Should we read the Bible “literally?” What does “literally mean, anyway? No one is sure what “literally” means. When two different parts of the Bible disagree (as they often do), how can anyone read them both “literally?” However, it seems likely that some parts of the Bible are meant to be read more “literally” than other parts.   Where did the Bible come from — … Read entire article »

One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic? What does that mean?

One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic? What does that mean?

When we recite the Creed at Mass, we say the Church is “one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.” Why? Why must the Church be “one?” How can the Church be holy when it’s full of sinners? Is there a difference between “catholic” and “Catholic?” What does apostolic mean? Jesus Himself said the Church must be visible, united, visibly united, and authoritative. Can you show this to Protestants in the Gospels themselves? Why is there hierarchy in the Church? Did the early Church have … Read entire article »

Is there a God? September 23

Is there a God?     September 23

WHY? Atheists demand proof that God exists. They say God is an imaginary “flying spaghetti monster.” Protestants demand proof that Catholicism is true Christianity. They say they are “Bible Christians” but Catholics are not. Can you satisfy demands like these? Can you explain why Catholics believe what we believe?   APOLOGETICS doesn’t mean having to say you’re sorry. It means defending the Faith by explaining it properly. There is proof that God exists. There is proof that Catholicism is true … Read entire article »
