The book takes a look at the secularization of society and religion's role. We discuss the call for all Catholics to evangelize and live their faith publicly, how some Catholics are suffering from "Stockholm Syndrome" in secular-liberal societies, and how man is a religious being by nature.

Catholic Answers Live - Why It Matters to Be Catholic

April 15, 2021

Why be a Catholic and not a member of another faith tradition?

Questions Covered:

 
  • 06:53¬†- I am having a discussion with a Protestant friend who doesn‚Äôt think Catholics will be saved. How can I best prepare for the conversation?¬†
  • 13:45¬†- I don‚Äôt believe you need to be Catholic to be saved. I have a personal relationship with¬†God,¬†and it doesn‚Äôt matter to him if I am Catholic. I was not comfortable in the Catholic Church because it was just a bunch of rituals.¬†
  • 29:08¬†- My brother recently left the Church. At his church, they take communion that his pastor says is the body and blood of Christ. He says, why be Catholic when I can have the True Presence in another church?¬†
  • 35:19¬†- Why would someone want to be Catholic when the Church messed with the 10 Commandments?¬†
  • 45:04¬†- When I am talking to Protestants, the conversation often turns historical. Distortions of history are¬†presented¬†and it is difficult to authoritatively address these misrepresentations of the Church. How do I best have these conversations and is there a resource respected by Catholics and Protestants to establish the historical truth?¬†
  • 50:19¬†‚Äď I was¬†raised Baptist but am really interested in the Catholic Church. I am told a lot that Catholics worship Mary. Is there biblical evidence for saying the ‚ÄėHail Mary‚Äô?¬†

Why be a Catholic and not a member of another faith tradition?

Questions Covered:

 
  • 18:30¬†- In Lumen Gentium, it says that all religions participate in the truth of God. This is confusing. How can Catholicism be the one true faith, but a Church document also states that other religions kind of have it right, too?¬†
  • 33:05¬†- There seems to have been a shift in the Christian faith in general that the Lord is always merciful, and not about his justice. People say, yes, I am not Catholic, but I will be fine because God is merciful. How would I respond to someone who approaches being a part of the Church without conviction?¬†
  • 41:46¬†- My son is not Catholic because he agrees with Protestants who say that you just¬†have to¬†profess your life to God and that‚Äôs it. How do I speak to him about this?¬†
Beneath the Surface - Creed #14

Beneath the Surface - Creed #14

April 15, 2021

What does it mean that heaven is "up"? Why does Jesus 'ascend' rather than just disappear? Is there an "up-ness" to God and heaven? How might we think about this?  Let's go beneath the surface!
