How can fiction act as a tool in apologetics and evangelization? Dr. Holly Ordway explains the way that stories can sneak past our â€śwatchful dragonsâ€ť and impart truth that otherwise would not be welcomed.
Ugh, the false dichotomy between the Jesus of history and the Jesus of faith. No, they are not two different people, and yes, the Gospels are an accurate history of the Rabbi from Nazareth.
How can the Catholic Church teach that the Eucharist is the actual body and blood of Jesus when Jesus refers to his so-called blood as the â€śfruit of the vineâ€ť? And how can the Catholic Church teach that Mary was immaculately conceived when she calls God her â€śSaviorâ€ť in Luke 1:47?
How can Catholics Church teach â€śSacred Traditionâ€ť when Jesus teaches that the Bible is the only authority? And how can the Catholic Church teach that good works play a role in our justification when Paul insists that weâ€™re not justified by works?
Catholic Faith contradicts the Bible, some Protestants will say. Karlo Broussard explains that this is a challenge Catholics must answer because we accept the Bible as the Word of God. Not to worry, he also shows how such claims are wildly mistaken.
Modern scholars often muddle the truth abut Jesusâ€™ knowledge of himself. Did he know he was God? Did he behold the face of God even from the moment of conception? And why does any of this matter?
What is the proper role of the Church in the debate over marriage? Is sacramental marriage different than natural marriage? And what is the role of governments in this debate: to determine what marriage is or to discover and protect what marriage is?
Marriage has been redefined by the state, but was there ever a precise definition of marriage? Could reason lead us to such a definition? And who is the competent authority to decide these things?
They drink, they smoke, they make a popular show for Catholic men, so we ask Adam and David to justify Catholic teaching on the acceptability of drinking. Wouldnâ€™t God prefer that we all just stay away from the sauce and stick with tea? That depends, it turns out.
We continue our conversation with the author of Reform Yourself! and the founder and editor of EpicPew.com on whether the Church Fathers believed in Sola Scriptura with looks at Athanasius, Cyril of Jerusalem, and Augustine.
Is the Catechism of the Catholic Church too harsh in calling homosexual inclinations â€śobjectively disorderedâ€ť? Father James Martin has suggested a change in wording to something such as â€śdifferently ordered.â€ť Might that be helpful?
The author of Reform Yourself! and the founder and editor of EpicPew.com helps you explain what the Church Fathers really taught about the Bible. He details how Protestant defenders of Sola Scriptura go too far when they enlist the early Church Fathers to defend the idea that Scripture is the sole rule of faith.
Is the Bible a collection of letters? To whom were the letters sent? Did the ancient world have a mail system? Listen in to hear Jimmy Akin and Cy Kellett discuss ancient letters and their importance in Scripture.
Cy concludes his interview on evolution and God with the author of Prepare the Way: Overcoming Obstacles to God, The Gospel, and The Church. Here, Karlo explains why greater complexity coming from apparently lesser complexity is not a problem, and why arguments that a wise God just wouldnâ€™t have done it this way donâ€™t hold water.
