But not without a descent from clarence Thomas, they claimed that COVID vaccines developed using aborted children, he argued that healthcare workers had legitimate injections to use in the vaccine, which he said were developed using stem cell lines from aborted children. First of all, in fact, COVID among many, many vaccines have used, yes, from they were frozen more than 5 decades ago. Yes. Right?

Interpreting the Scripture With Father Robert Sirico
"We're talking to the author of the economics of the parables, those are the parables of Jesus, father Robert sirico. We live in a world and you know this, the Catholic Church is guilty of this, protestants are guilty of this. They misunderstand what the scripture says. And they take this kind of sloppy theological view that wealth is bad. Ultimately, that view, it's like a gnostic view, it's a platonic dualistic view. It's not a biblical view. The biblical view says that everything can be good if we give it to God and use it for his purposes. He's the creator. He pronounced it good in the book of genesis. The material world is good. The material world becomes the occasion for God. Look how seriously God takes the material world. In the creation, in the details of the building of the temple and the building of the ark of the covenant. And right on through to the incarnation, which is the ratification of the intention at the creation. If you need some evidence that God likes this world, he became a human being. I mean, and then the bread and wine, a communion. Now we have different theologies on communion, but nonetheless, look at this. Jesus didn't choose grapes and grain. He chose bread and wine. What's the difference? Bread and wine is undergone human work. Human work has great dignity.
Caller Defends Nancy Pelosi for Not Condemning Violence on Churches
"I'm great. Go ahead and tell me why Nancy Pelosi is worth defending on this subject. Fancy Pelosi has a speaker in the House, is putting out a generic statement. Now, when she says she's a real Catholic. Camp the Catholic Church takes a real strong stance on violence, destruction, abortion. We're based on scripture as all faith I believe are. But she doesn't say go and burn down buildings. Go and attack. She just is not saying anything because she doesn't support it. But when you're being watched by the turtle because I believe she has lost the right to take communion. She is now, you know, with all due respect, you sort of merge the two topics. On the issue of abortion, she is asked, how do you reconcile your Catholic Church, your Catholicism with being pro abortion and her answer was, I'm a very I'm very Catholic. Then on the subject of the burning of pro life pregnancy centers, she was asked, why don't Democrats condone it? And she said a woman has a right to choose. Those are two different things in two different specific answers.
The Severe Terror Tactics Used by Pro-Choice Activists
"The protests outside the home of justice Kavanaugh continue. And while their peaceful protests, it's a little disturbing this idea that the left is able to show up at your house. You would think that there would be proper venues for these protests, but you wouldn't be able to come and harass someone where they live. And so you have this alarming scene of these sort of police officers with helmets and batons, and then all these protesters milling about them and shouting slogans and signs and so on. But that's not the worst of it. The worst of it is what the left is doing to these pregnancy centers. The pro life pregnancy centers around the country now life news, which is a pro life site, has documented 40 plus incidents of violence and vandalism directed at pro life individuals and organizations ever since the leak of the draft Supreme Court's decision. By the way, where is the leaker? How is it the case that you have this investigation and somehow you can't find the leaker who gave this information to the media? What? No. Let's look at these incidents because they are quite disturbing. Houston, early May, holy rosary Catholic Church vandalized on the pastor, faster Harris says most definitely it's a result of the leak that came out last week. So Catholic target but on by the pro abortion activists in early May, manassas, Virginia, vandals defaced a pro life pregnancy resource center, writing graffiti all over the building, abortion is a right, you people are liars, a whole bunch of incidents in Texas, early May Portland, Oregon, southeast Portland, pregnancy center. You can see the windows smashed as a photo here. There's the F word, debris everywhere. May 3rd, Frederick Maryland, the care net pregnancy center defaced with spray painted pro abortion messages that say pro abortion, go to PP, Planned Parenthood instead, abortion is a right. This is not a real clinic, and forced motherhood, and then one more example out of the 40, then I'll give you may 8th, Madison, Wisconsin. I left this so called anarchist group, attacks the Wisconsin family action office. They've tossed two molotov cocktails into the office after breaking windows, and then they set the office on fire.
Dems Are Rewriting History as if They Never Called for SCOTUS Protests
"Yeah and meanwhile the Democrats are trying to make it out that conservatives and Republicans and Trump supporters are the purveyors of political violence by hosting this January 6th symposium as it were They're having these prime time televised hearings a year and a half after the vast majority of people trespassed onto a government building that their taxpayer dollars pay for but that's another discussion But they're having these televised hearings to try to continue this narrative that Republicans are actually the violent ones as one of their supporters goes and tries to subvert the justice system by assassinating a Supreme Court Justice And was actually egged on by the Biden administration Jen Psaki when she was first asked about these protests when we already knew that they were illegal insisted that they were peaceful and said the president certainly encourages us as a quote certainly encourages people to show up outside of the justices home And it wasn't until after pro life center started being firebombed masses were being interrupted at Catholic churches that she changed her tune a little bit and said we certainly condemn anything that's illegal or could be perceived as violent et cetera et cetera Now you have Andrew Bates the deputy press secretary lying and saying that Jen Psaki never encouraged people to show up at the house Like they're rewriting history now It's like the ministry of truth is not just targeting people who speak truth but they're also manipulating it on their own end as well
Generations After D-Day, We Can Hardly Say What It Is to Be a Man
"Folks, welcome back. As you know, today we celebrate the anniversary of D-Day. And you know John, I think of the man, young man, who heroically risked their lives and gave their lives and you think of that generation and you think where we have come all these years later that we can hardly say what it is to be a man, what it is to be a woman. It is a moral issue, more than anything. This is a moral issue, and of course, because I have a book coming out about it. I wonder, where are the pastors speaking the truth? They're supposed to be fearlessly speaking the truth in love on all of these issues for most of them. Oh, listen, my own Catholic Church, Pope Francis is preparing to surrender on homosexuality. He's gathering all these LGBTQ my names leitch and people. The gay priests and gay nuns and he is, he is trying to soften Catholic south to accept same sex marriage. He is that much of a sellout.
The Catholic Church Stands Up for Life and Holds Pelosi Accountable
"Interesting to me. Now, aside from this debate with Nancy Pelosi taking communion and again, communion being a sacrament in the Catholic Church, this is a big deal. What amazes me is as you talk about this, you have the media and others, including the San Francisco paper, editorial board saying that the leader in the aristocracy of San Francisco who did this who banned from communion for Nancy Pelosi Pelosi ought to be removed and taken out of that leadership role. And I'm wondering about this. And I sit here and I think about it and this just shows the frustration that I have. That they are the left is so wedded to this pro abortion policy. That they will not tolerate any dissent. And when you look at this idea and I've left with this being a pastor and being a chaplain in the air force, let me just say that you are free to express your religious beliefs any way you want to. That is the very ultimate idea of freedom of religion. If you want to worship as a Catholic, you worship physicality. You want to worship as a southern madness, as I am, worshiping some, pick your choice. What you want. If you don't want to worship at all, that's your choice. If you want to worship a nature, that's your choice. If you want to be, you know, any form of your religious belief that self sustaining belief that you have, that is what you have in the United States and the government can not take that away from you. That
Janet Morana Tells Us the Truth About 'Jane Roe'
"Janet. As we were coming into the studio, you said you mentioned something that you both know a certain lady who for 49 years has been known as Janet Jane roe. Tell us who she really was and because a lot of misinformation about her attitude to abortion after the decision. So who is Jane roe? Norma mccorvey, who I could say is a personal friend of mine. I stated her home in Dallas. She stayed at my home in New York. Father Frank actually brought her into the Catholic Church. In fact, Norma mccorvey never had an abortion. What? No, never. In fact, she was taken advantage of basically. She was basically homeless. She already had two babies at a wedlock that her family, one was for adoption, her mother was raising one. And over a pizza lunch, she signed for Sarah waiting to know the dotted line. She got will help you take care of your pregnancy. She signs on the dotted line. Do you think she spent one day in court? Not one day. Never heard from Sarah really. And then the day, roe V wade's decided. Do you think your lawyer would pick up the phone and say we won Norma? You know how she found out when she opened her door that morning and picked up the Dallas morning paper. So I don't understand if she hadn't had an abortion, but she wasn't involved in the hearings. What was her utility to the industry of death? Why did they need her? Well, they were looking actually, you know, to find someone like her, not well educated and kind of desperate situation who just would be used like a puppet. And in fact, the companion case that day, the Doe of dovey Bolden, father Frank and I know her too. Both ladies are Sandra kino. Same thing. She was her case was coming up through Georgia, while enormous was coming up through Texas. And Sandra signed on the dotted line thinking, she never two children back out of foster care. It was her mother who wanted her to put this child. And when Sandra found out, she left Georgia to Oklahoma to give birth to that

Michael Knowles: Why Catholic Support for the Right to Life Is Lagging
"Michael Knowles, host of the daily wires, the Michael Knowles show, everybody check that out. Michael, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. It is great to be with you, man. Thanks for having me. Well, it's great to have you on the show all the time. I mean, it's great to have an apostate Catholic, be able to explain these horrendous poll numbers. I was like, Michael, you got some splaining to do my friend. Got this plane. Catholics, according to pew, you got 48% of Catholics that believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases. So that's 48 to 47%. What the heck is going on right now? Well, it's very sad, but the reason that you see that is because Joe Biden calls himself a Catholic. Nancy Pelosi calls herself a Catholic. The Cuomo family has called themselves Catholics. They don't ascend to the teachings of the Catholic Church, but they were raised Catholic. Maybe they went to church on Sunday sometimes. And so they take it on as a kind of cultural identity. In a similar way that Jews will do this. Jews being an ethnicity and a religion will say I'm Jewish, even if they don't believe anything about the Jewish religion and they don't follow any of the practices. I have a sort of personal connection to this in that I was raised a cradle Catholic. I was, we have infant baptism, that's one of the reasons that people will keep this identity even if they don't actually practice the religion. And I went away. I fell away from the faith for about ten years. And I came back to it, and I came back to it in a very gradual way. And I came back to it through certain Protestant thinkers and through certain actually not even not Christian thinkers, and then I was convinced God exists. And then I was convinced Jesus is who he says he is, and that I was convinced that the Catholic Church really is the Catholic Church. And so I came back to it with all the zeal of a revert. All the zeal of a convert. And it drives me crazy because it take, for example, Joe Biden, who says he's Catholic, he goes, I believe he receives communion at mass, he is in a state of grave and unrepentant sin. He is supporting abortion in a very public way. He is committing the sin of scandal. He is committing all sorts of skins. And the scandal here is that he's leading the flock astray and it's a real risk. When Christ says, it's not going to go very well for those of you who lead the little ones astray. It's just thinking about that verse. Millstones and all of that. That's what we're talking about here. We're actually not even really talking about

Life Imitates Art With 'Wag the Dog'
"Everybody needs to go back and rent the 1997 classic movie wag the dog. In it Robert De Niro plays a political consultant who gets called in by a president who's been caught having sex with a campfire girl in The White House. So in order to the election is in two weeks, in order to distract people, they make up a fake war with Albania and then they film the war and they have Kirsten Dunst and they dress her up as a peasant running with a bag of Cheetos, but later they Photoshop it to be her doll. And they just, they manufacture this crisis out of thin air. That is exactly what they did with COVID. It's what they did with George Floyd. It's what they did with Jussie Smollett with Russia collusion, it's what they're doing now with the Ukraine and I guarantee you if that tragic war ends tomorrow, the very next day, we're going to learn that systemic racism lies behind putting things in alphabetical order. And that using alphabetical order is a continuation of slavery and it was invented by a slaveholders conspiracy and the Catholic Church is tied up in it and we all have to repent using alphabetical order. Now, you think I'm kidding. I just took that from a real headline that said that the Dewey decimal system is systemically racist.
Charlie Kirk and Eric Brainstorm What We Can Do About Election Fraud
"You and I were talking on your program about dinesh d'souza's new film coming out 2000 mules. When you discover that there's a massive criminal operation to steal an election, first, it leaves you speechless, and then like you were saying, then you get very angry. That's right. But then, of course, the question is, what can we do about this? When people are telling us, oh, by the way, shut up. Don't even talk about that. I mean, somebody tells me to shut up, I'm going to scream about it. But what do you think we can do about this? Not enough. We can do something. I mean, we can hopefully root out the criminal conspiracy that was illegally ballot trafficking. These ballots and all these states and we have evidence of that. We have evidence enough where you could lay this out in a court of law. Right. And you and I went through that evidence for 6 hours asking every skeptical cross examination question we could. But not enough. I mean, when the bank was robbed, right? So what's the insurance policy for the country when you rob an election? I have some ideas. Yeah, but the point is that they're probably not going to happen. Well, I'm just being realistic. No, no, no, but it's not going to be another election. This is not going to happen, right? I mean, there will be in the future, hopefully. But the point is that once that election was stolen, once those laundered ballots crossed the precipice into the ballot box, they became indistinguishable from the other ballots. We know that. So hopefully we could root out the bottom of the criminal conspiracy. Hopefully we can make sure this does not happen again. Look, I mean, if I were to be very blunt to use kind of a religious example, is that, you know, we need to have the same sort of impact or the same sort of overton window moving moment when it used to be called a conspiracy theory that there were people and members of the Catholic Church that were abusing young boys and girls. Right. And there was a huge revelation that showed that not only was it happening, it was being covered up. And this is not an anti Catholic state. My best Friends in the world are Catholic, I have a lot of respect for Catholics. The point is that that used to be something that people would immediately say is not true.
How Patrick Coffin Deduced That Pope Francis Is an Anti-Pope
"Is it possible to undo something if somebody puts if the Pope puts something out in an encyclical? You're saying it's binding, that he is the Pope and that there is somehow infallibility enters into that. So is it possible that something like that could ever be reversed because it's possible in American law, but now we're not talking about American law. We're not talking about the Supreme Court. We're talking about a higher court for Catholics. So how does that work? I enjoy using the Supreme Court analogy because it's pretty, it's a pretty clear analogy that you have the written text, in this case, the Bible, in that case, the constitution. Then you have this living body that's interpreting it. Where the analogy breaks down, is that the truth claim of the Catholic Church is that she's the unique church founded by Jesus Christ, the Christ has one bride, one lord one faith, one baptism. And if one Pope contradicts a previous Pope, that is the end of Catholicism. That means it's all. The answer is my question. I thought that's what we're dealing with here. And this is why it is important for you in making this case and you're saying, if this Pope behaves in that way, then you're saying logically, if I'm to believe that the church is the church, then I have to believe that maybe it's possible, in fact he's not the Pope. And so that's the case you're making right now. That's the journey that I took to get to this conclusion, Eric, but this is a very important issue you're raising. The fact that Pope Francis has said things that are crazy loopy, hard left, socialist communist, in bed with all the enemies of John Paul the second and all previous popes. That's just confirmatory evidence. That is not the kill shot. The kill shot is he who would renounce the papacy must renounce the office, its canon three three 2.2. Don't believe me, canon three three 2.2. Some very first sentence. That word monas was put in there by John Paul the second in 1983 with the help of Joseph ratzinger himself when he was the prefect of the congregation for the doctrine of the faith. I don't know why. I don't know if that's providential, but that's the word you must use or that the concept has to be
Is Francis an Anti-Pope or Just a Bad Pope? Patrick Coffin Explains
"Isn't it just possible that you have a Pope that is, it's like a bad president in the sense that, yes, he is the president. Yes, he is the Pope, but. He's not doing things that are officially wrong or he doesn't have the power that faithful Catholics are giving him in a sense. Well, it's certainly true that catechesis is at an all time low in the Catholic Church in the last two generations. And I would reply that papal teaching and what we call the gift of infallibility does not only obtain when it comes to an ex cathode or from the throne dogmatic definition. Catholic Church teaches that in the ordinary magisterium. So encyclicals, absolute constitutions, the church expresses the truth about Jesus Christ and what we must do and what we must believe to be Catholics. It does not have to be that extraordinary mode of infallibility. This is important. And I'm very glad I asked you this because your clarifying something for me. I just like to know these things. That's extraordinary. Sure. I'll call it a vault. It's like an archive of official cafe teaching. You can find it on Vatican dot VA. It's called the ACTA apostolica sadist, big mouthful. It's simply means the acts of the chair of the apostles. And it's the official lexicon or vault of official teaching. And in 2015 and 2016, remember the infamous synod on the family where there's so much confusion about homosexuality and divorce from remarried Catholics suddenly being able to have received fully community without a decree of nullity. All that confusion, which was replied to by the Argentinian bishops as allowing a loophole which contradicts 2000 years of sacred tradition with respect to indiscriminate. That document, which is called a Morris letitia, by the way, I was saying that the name of the document into my cell phone and it came back amorous letitia. So that's what I call it. Amorous letitia. Both that document and the letter that was published by the Argentine bishops. Both of them are in the AAS,

"He basically says i'm from the family of a used car salesman from scranton pennsylvania and that's true by the way like it's not like he was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth but i think the important thing is that he saw that shift happened in his family. Right the kind of fall that his dad had exactly so. I think that's part of the chip on the shoulder comes from it. It's interesting and i think it matters that when he the family did move to to delaware he could see from his bedroom and claim on the outer buildings of arch mirror kademi which was the nicest most prestigious catholic school in the area and it really mattered to him that he went there. He wanted so badly to go there. I called it. And his his is it loomed so arch for him like both in the literal sense but all these things are tied up in that sort of chip on the shoulder. Thing that we're talking about words matter that he moved when he was an adult to greenville delaware. Which is the area north west of wilmington. Wear all the department is and it's a big mansions and he always obsessed over real estate and sent homies story about how when he was young. Senator you would get on planes and instead of like reading briefing materials bringing magazine time newsweek. He would pick up architectural digest or just out his legal pad and sort sketching home designs. Like this is what he did. This is what was running through his mind and his downtime. You know that was an affluent community and it was an affluent.

"Of church and state and that was a huge moment for him and his campaign and overcoming a lot of anti-catholic sentiment. You ass. I believe in an america that is officially the catholic protestant jewish where no public official either request or accept instructions on public policy from the pope the national council of cartoons or any other ecclesiastical sauce i think since then it no longer matters as much to be like an ethnic catholic. I'm not trying to diminish like that identity at all. But i mean there's not the same prejudice or bias around that as there once was so joe biden ever had to give that speech for example but interestingly john kerry kind of did in his own way but by then john kerry who ran in two thousand four like had to navigate the issue but by then it was already becoming about abortion and you had some bishops who were threatening to withhold communion from him. I think they called it the wafer wars that they never went like act like john kerry to my knowledge has never been denied comedian. In the same way that joe biden has a catholic priest did not give you communion. He said it was because of your position on abortion. Were you offended by that at least once a catholic church in south carolina. It's a private matter. I'm not gonna talk about that but So only time it's ever happened and we didn't talk about it. He went to the press about it. And it's not a position that i've found anywhere else including from the holy father. Who gives me communion. He never john kerry never had the bishops of proposing to write a document targeting him. Which is what's happening right now over this issue so you in a way. Everything's changed. But i just think that also were talking around the demographic shifts in the catholic church and you know towards the eight hundred ninety s e c and huge growth in the number of white catholics. Who were basically looking more and more like just conservative. Voters like in in america. And so that helped make abortion the preeminent issue in the catholic church and all of those things contributed to this very particular environment. In which joe biden now is at the very center so it's just different from kennedy but it's a continuation of what started there but it strikes me that what would you would you lay out. Is the main political problem for catholic. In national politics now is not being catholic enough this when it comes to some of the things like abortion whereas kennedy literally had to say he would not follow directions from the pope because there was so little understanding about catholicism. An american back then that it was taken as a article of faith a unintended. The pope could tell the president what to do which i think. Now people would think of that as absurd. Were you raised catholic. I feel elizabeth. Yeah okay so you know this irish catholic irish italian catholic. Yeah yeah and my grandparents and my grandparents like a lot of people that generation warship jfk. They were the generation that had like a picture of jfk on the wall and their little apartments in new york and i think biden had similar childhood. Yeah oh this is what i wanted to ask you about that. I mean not to put biden on the couch too much but he is a pretty interesting sites. Psychologically he's he's the interest and figure you excavated this quote that i thought was really good and worth keeping handy about having a chip on his shoulder having a chip on his shoulder. One to me one of the defining characteristics of biden. Oh my god. Yes in all things right and i often think that intellectually. He's going to cheat on his soldier. You know class wise It so much part of his identity. What's the chip on a shoulder when it comes to religion and the issues that you writing about the chip has different dimensions to it. And they are all intertwined with the question of faith because it is a class thing we basically spent the entire campaign hearing him. Give a rip about how he would be only president to not have gone to an ivy league schools since they would be since reagan. I think. Yeah thank you. But he's repeated that. I think he actually. It wasn't just a campaigning. I think he's actually kind of alluded to it in his presidency to. What's fascinating about. His upbringing is that his father was actually very well to do businessman for you know the majority of his early marriage certainly and for time when joe biden was very young and that sort of fell apart and he had to sort of start over as a used car salesman in the family moved to delaware and that was a new start they moved from scranton delaware. And that's an amazing story biden should tell that story on the campaign trail once in awhile. He doesn't tell it quite like that though. Meaning you know. He doesn't talk about the he basically says i'm from the family of a used car salesman from scranton pennsylvania and that's true by the way like it's not like he was raised with.

"And she was called mary. Priest in her official title was the model for all priesthood in the catholic church. And a lotta times. I think if you hear that. Mary's a priest you're saying oh command. Wait a minute. Obviously she was jesus's mother so as this may be some type of an honorary title in jan went scared when at and he was very explicit because he wanted to make this point murray. Mary was a sacrificial priest. In other words she was up on the altar during the consecration. Craciun she was as much a priest is any other male priest was and you might be wondering. Well wait a minute. Mary wasn't ordained jesus is as well was never ordained at the time of conception the holy spirit Blessed both of them and obviously mary was a part of their blessing and even the catholic church going way back in the eighteen fifty four to give the title of mary being appraised they went back in news tradition. Hebrews seven to six it says. Isn't it fitting that. Mary is such a high priest but basically the priests were using marianna sense to help them with their priesthood and they would prey to her and there was even a prayer card that had a pitcher of mary. Mother of god dressed in priestly attire. And the prayer on the other side was latin but for so many women hearing this now again if it would be seemed like a foreign concept. Because you've been told since time your little no there never were woman. Priest let alone woman. Bishops deacons in our church history. And how do you relate to that because even the readings in the church were they do mention woman so much that has just been entirely Cut out you haven't had the opportunity weekly to hear a woman's perspective anna reading.

"Was the two hundred and fifteen causses. First nation located hyun scattering. It's about forty five minutes. Outside of regina there was a residential school. they're called the maryvale indian residential school and people knew there was a cemetery there. They weren't sure of how big it was her. Who is all there because when the school closed down and Whatever headstones or whatever were removed by by the catholic church so although there was at one time recognition that was the headstones removed and so did reserve community had to do their own investigation and and try to locate where these graves are. Is it not why. The catholic church remove the gravestones because they were leaving the reserve. They probably thought that was their property so they took it. What has the catholic church done in canada to acknowledge the role that it played in the schools but both as a whole end individual institutions within individual churches the individual churches and the the catholic church institution have reacted very differently. The institution itself has has drug their feet on acknowledging their role in their part they played. In the destruction of indigenous communities indigenous families they had committed to fundraising and providing a financial support for indian residential school survivors and the agreed that they would pay twenty five million and they didn't. I think the camera with three million said they were not able to raise them the twenty twenty five million that they they agreed to and so the court said okay. Fine left okay. Canada has made attempts to get the catholic church primarily the pope to issue an apology our recognize their part in their role. They played in in the destruction of indigenous families in the destruction of indigenous people here in canada and they've chose not to but when it comes to individual churches individual people here in Their attitude is different although many of the The ones that are here now had no knowledge of the schools. They didn't are taken the schools. They are recognizing the role. The catholic church played in these places and a lot of individual. Churches are reaching out and showing support and trying to build those bridges and recognizing the wrongdoing. That happened. but they're doing it individually. What what would you to stay the catholic church doing as a whole to to help. Sort of bring about truth and reconciliation. I think there have been a lot of things done. A lot of things that have been asked that the catholic church as an institution and they've failed and for me. I'm only speaking for me. Come tired. I'm tired of asking if they aren't willing to even recognize the wrong than saying saying i'm sorry now. Having the pope come out and say. I'm sorry that really doesn't mean anything. It doesn't erase more than hundred years of history. And what is i'm sorry to do..
"catholic church" Discussed on The Argument
"For the church to be called the house of the father. With the door's always open. So that if someone moved by the spirit comes. They're looking for god he or she will not find a closed-door communion to me and the tradition in which i was raised is the ultimate recognition of christ's sacrifice for us. It is the reenactment of the last supper. In which christ knew that he was going to die for the sins of humanity and he asked his brothers to come and take and eat of him. Catholics believe in trans injury. Which is the idea. That the communion bread the community wind become the body and blood of jesus christ in recognition of the sacrifice. He made in catholic tradition. There's this debate about approaching communion if you're not in a state of grace but then we have pope francis saying that in some senses receiving. The eucharist is about receiving that greece. Heidi how do you think that this. Because you said it's not really about communion but it clearly is a little bit. How does this figure into the debate. About what communion is foreign. Who comedian is for. I guess what i would say is that it can be both both something that is for centers and in which we receive grace but at the same time the church does have some appropriate role in deciding how the sacraments are celebrated in who celebrates them and who partake of them. The eucharist is the source and summit of the christian life according to the catechism. Certainly it's very important. And visible way that catholics practice their faith so i believe that the bishops have a right duty of course to teach about the eucharist and to teach about what the church says about the dignity of human life and i would like to see our bishops teach and persuade but i don't think an emphasis on the punish side of how to get people to do what you want them to do is very effective and i say this both as a former teacher and as a parent my friend john carr who at georgetown now formerly with the bishop's conference always says we need to make abortion unthinkable before we make it illegal and i don't think the bishops are doing a very good job of persuading people about that. Ross this seems to make abortion the litmus test for whether or not the american catholic church or followers of the american catholic church will support a particular politician. What gets me about. This is that this is a very public and performance of action. Because if you're a priest you have absolutely no idea in general what most of the people who are receiving communion have done that day they could have committed any number of mortal or venial sins. They could have been divorced. They could have had extramarital sex and the reason why catholic politicians who are supportive of abortion rights come in for particular opprobrium is because we know where their positions are because they're public figures. Why abortion is the thing to make the stance on why not the death penalty or getting divorced or any number of factors because not saying that abortion abortions. Not an incredibly important issue to catholics. Who do believe that. It is a grave sin but there are lots of other grave sins on the abortion. Point is just that abortion is murder is worse than other sentence. Right i don. I don't think it's i think it's not actually particularly complex. The reason that people bring up the death penalty is that that's the closest you can get to parallel case where it is actually a matter of life and death where a human being is being killed. Now you can argue various reasons why we shouldn't think of abortion as murder and you had my colleague michelle goldberg and i on on the show and we you know we. We've had that argument but within the context of catholic teaching. That's the logic. Now i think having a preeminent issue like this does create a problem for the church where the other political parties seems to sort of accumulate a long list of issues that taken on their own or all less significant than abortion but in the case of certain aspects of the trump presidency. Do seem to add up to take the case of the death penalty abortion and the death penalty even so are still different because the death penalty is the execution of a person who's been found guilty of a serious crime in some cases. That person may actually be innocent. But that's what the state is attempting to do their to execute guilty. Which is again different from. What happens in abortion. No one is arguing that the unborn human being is guilty of a capital crime. My view is that the public nature. The performing nature is sort of the point. Right that yeah. In most cases nobody knows what kinds of sins were committing. Thank god in secret that we may or may not have confessed before we go up to take communion but politicians by virtue of being politicians by choosing the life. They've chosen they're responsible directly for war and peace and all times of things. You know where you can trace direct consequences from their policies and so the church does have a different relationship to them. Necessarily i mean. I guess i push heidi a little bit. I would say that. I wouldn't agree with it but i don't think it would be crazy for the church in the case of a death penalty supporting catholic politician to have a conversation about withholding communion given how that teaching has developed. I respect that. Heidi doesn't think that's appropriate. But i guess i'd ask. Is there anything where it would be appropriate. Yeah i mean. I can't think of a specific example but i do recognize that. That is the purview. And the responsibility of church leaders. I just think in this situation. It pretty clearly is not and with william bar. I pray for his conversion on that issue. And i think he's less likely to convert on that issue. If he's not receiving communion. I can speak personally about the importance of receiving the eucharist in my own life. And how i think it's been transformative. So the idea of denying that to someone seems counterproductive. I guess i would push back a little bit on you about the simplicity of abortion being murder. It's certainly is the taking of a life. I don't want to contradict church teaching here but it can be complicated. It's the reason why. Most i think pro-lifers do not call for the imprisonment or execution. I guess of a woman who has an abortion because they don't see it as simply murder in that way and i also think that while politicians need to be responsible for the positions that they personally hold or that they support either from their party or actions of their own as politicians. I do also think there's a little bit more nuance here in this situation. With biden at the same time it is currently the law of the land here and he has moved towards being more accepting of his. Party's you know liberalism or whatever you call it on abortion but he has never taken back the fact that he says he has personally opposed to it and i think that when we start thinking that a politician who's member of a party or an administration or a country that has anything that's against the catholic church. Then we're all kind of in trouble. Not just the republicans and their as you said growing number of things that they oppose that. Just don't happen to be abortion but many of us and we don't want the communion line to be.

I'm a humble servant of the lord who happens to live in his own independent nations with billions of dollars in golden riches buried secretly beneath it guarded by swiss mercenaries. What is the problem with that. How does that. How does that not say humble servant of god to you for real. You listen to swiss mercenaries. It's the swiss mercenaries isn't new truly live in some shit. That sounds like a fairytale. no four. You're like is this something. I'm perpetuating that is precisely against thought. I pretend god is. Maybe i should take a knee and fucking renounce all this bullshit away now okay. We'll i'll just riding around in my weird bulletproof pope mobile a fun thing to do with the high up leadership of the catholic church. I'm not saying this about necessarily every single precinct because there are definitely parishes and stuff where there weren't molestation and as we've talked about nervous in the school the americas that were heroic catholic priests and nuns who fought against these right wing death squads and acts of genocide in places like guatemala. And i don't mean like. I'm not saying. Every single catholic church official is complicit in this but everyone at the highest level leadership of the church absolutely as everyone who is running the vatican. Every pope knows about this shit and is complicit in covering up in every year we get more evidence of that every high level catholic official is a part of not just this but the mass child-molestation every single one of them. And if you start to come up with defenses for them replace the word catholic church with nazi germany. And see if those defenses sound like things that defenders of earmarked say when. They're trying to claim that there were large chunks of the nazis who weren't complicit in the genocide. It's the same shell so they ran the catholic church they were part of it and also catholics were part of a complete actual holocaust and they weren't genocide that is part of world news fairness though slice. It you have to there. You have to separate the church in rome from the catholic church large parts of the church in germany. Who a big part of the resistance to hitler and in fact the three groups that reinhardt heidrick the architect of the holocaust targeted in germany were activists clerics which were catholic priests that were anti-nazi the jews obviously and freemasons so. I don't want to like again outside. Germany yeah but yes in the catholic. The pope at that point. There's a bunch of fucked up shit you can say yes i just. I never want to be the catholic. The part of the problem when you're trying to condemn the catholic church is inevitably people will be like well. What about this heroic priest who gave his life protecting. It's like yes. i'm not saying. He helped cover up mass child rape. I'm talking about the pope's. I'm talking about the bishops. I'm talking about the people. In charge of the organization the way conducted yes and is equivalent to a lot of other organizations. We're not we. Don't say every israeli person every no or whatever when we talk about. Us crimes. I'm not saying that your uncle who was drafted at age eighteen is responsible for the deployment of agent orange on the jungles of vietnam in a lotta ways. He's a victim too. But like yeah. It's it's the organization everyone running. The organization of the catholic church is complicit in this and that's cool and good sophia. it's not thank. It's india radically devastating. And i'm glad i started drinking. Yeah it's a good time to be drinking twenty twenty one just the whole year so a big part of the reason why the horrors of this system are now widely known has to do with a single woman from the village of tom and not to white not to wash out those brave journalists. Who did the important work of documenting this but that kind of covered up in the eighties. Twelve is again where that child. Mass grave was uncovered in. This woman's name is kath catherine corless. She grew up hearing the whispered stories about that mass grave which had been so efficiently hushed up and covered up by the church. She started to investigate in the early 'oughts and i'm going to quote from the journal dot i. e. here cordless works in her family farm. She didn't have an academic institution behind her instead. She worked on it in her spare time on a rainy day. I'd really get down to it and go to work in the library. She said she initially tried to contact the bon secours sisters at their core headquarters and was told that they no longer had files or information about the home. She tried the western health board. Who told her. There was no information available when she tried to access information from galloway county council. She says she was told that she wasn't allowed because she didn't have a university degree. That's exactly what i was told. I couldn't look at the records but the council would let her look at the information about the housing estate which had been built over the ruins of the old home and from this from this information about the housing estate. She was able to piece together data about the original site. She eventually hit upon the idea of going to the registry office in galway to get death certificates for every child who had perished at the home. Her contact at the office called her a week later and said do you really want all these death certificates. Because you're going to be charged for each of them and there's a fuck load of them. Corless was charged for euros for each death certificates. She requested between two thousand eleven when she started requesting them and two thousand thirteen. She came up. With seven hundred and ninety-six deaths they ranged from newborns to nine year old children. The death certificates gave causes ranging from malnutrition neglect. Measles burkey losses in pneumonia. The number of deaths and the time the home is operational. Mean that one child died there every fifteen days by overlaying map of the site as it looks today with plans for the old building. She realized the mass grave discovered in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy five had been built in the old location of the homes sewage tank. So when they didn't polish the building they step all the corpses in the sewage tank. That's good very respectful. Life matters catholic church famed advocates of the sanctity.

What's I really found found as an affront?

It is better that this issue like and so many words falls asleep. But I mean you're talking about Mary Mother of God is some type of an object. You're referring to it. And then they also are using the word answer. The answer has been resolved. So I also want to mention you know, many people think. Oh, wait a minute. How can Mary really have been a priest do you mean this is like maybe some type of honorary, you know, title and deference to talk to being Jesus's mother. Yeah the church back in 1854. There's a term Immaculate Conception in other words when married her childbirth, it wasn't by Joseph. It was the Holy Spirit and when the Holy Spirit conceived this child at that same moment Mary Mother of God Remains the Same Priestly blessing that Jesus had received. And the church had it justify this term Immaculate Conception that she they had approved that she was a priest. So they used tradition Hebrews 7-6, isn't it fitting that we indeed have such a high priest? So just remember that Mary really was a priest and after Jesus. She was really the first priest. Yeah. Well, okay, What is this all mean today for any woman? Yeah, it means that finally within the Catholic Church whether you're a young girl growing up in the church, or you know that you're a woman of age that you want to be a woman priest. I mean what better role model than having Mary Mother of God now is that model for Thursday for any woman attaining to be a woman priest? Yeah. Well, that's yeah. I mean the history doing just you're describing them. And as I say, I'm not as religious as when I was growing up, you know, cuz my parents are heavily not Catholic but Christian Caribbean Christians, but why why why don't be a hierarchy of the Catholic Church finally acknowledged? Yep. Roman Church past history That is the whole Crux of this issue Dave. Yeah, and if I said, oh, they're so biased people would say see she sexist or whatever but I mean seriously if they have findings from their own commissions. Yeah, I really feel for some reason they are afraid to to cheer their Priestly positions and hope Francis has even come out in in basically said that you know, as far as woman wanting to to be priests that it's like basically a feminist big thing where they want to have the same rules as mailbox and and they.

"There was these different councils and one dealt with the laity. That's like the everyday members of Catholic Church. Yeah. Yeah, they this article twenty-nine wanted to remove all types of discrimination whether it's racial whether it's sexual. Well, obviously if they would have taken care of that back then you know, things would have changed as well for women. So I'm giving you just three examples but these are really they they come right to the wage whole heart of the issue. You have the hierarchy of the Catholic church. That is not even found what their own commissions have found dead. So there's no reason why women can't become priests like they originally were in the early centuries of birth. Search well one of the most important finds, you know, I was really down what I found out I've been lied to you know, betrayed my trust has been betrayed wage, but there was this one bright Ray of Hope. And again, this is all factual what I'm saying right now. Yeah, very but there was a book Jan wins guards the ordinate in a woman in the Catholic Church, Mary Mother of God. Jesus is mother. She was a woman priest and she was called Mary. She actually had a title. She was the model of all priesthood in the Catholic church, right and Priests would actually pray. And back in 1906. There was a prayer card and it was pretty exciting. I want side and showed like a picture of Mary and Joseph the other side. There was a prayer. And allow me bring up another date and again when you're going back in the nineteen hundreds, that's pretty close. I mean considering two thousand years of Catholic Church History. Yeah in 1903. There was a Pope Leo XIII and he received the painting of Mary off and she was dressed in the Priestly garments. She has a bowl and the skull and the holy C. ROM said it was all right, he hung me a picture of that was 1903, but we moved to 1913 and things have drastically changed no longer was it able for anyone to hang a painting of a married priest but then in nineteen twenty-six twenty-seven.
"catholic church" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"Our society was dumber about this type of thing thirty and forty years ago we talk about the Catholic Church we talk about so many institutions that here individuals that it just garden variety criminals we were way too lenient are the people who committed sexual crimes against children as a rule that I society be at an institution the Boy Scouts are facing this problem as well and when somebody even when they were caught by the authorities you see here in Illinois multiple convictions between eighty to one ninety nine a generally just got a year or two just the refusal to learn that slides like this guy need to be locked up for decades because sexual perversion toward children is a crime that is almost impossible apparently given the overwhelming number of repeaters to stop doing back to the release so we've got up tonight and they point out that he know what identity but passes sexual registry until ninety nine so there was no such thing as an adjudicated sexual predator until they passed the law until that point I would pick out a little bit but I would say also point out that many other states were slow to react to this just as many of us in society were slow to react and many institutions that obviously it now in retrospect deeply regret it but it was a societal wide problem in which we were simply in denial about the number of perverts that were out there back to the release you able to receive in nineteen ninety six and lived there until two thousand three he then lived in Walker shop or three to all eight and that'll kind of walked away to the present through the investigation it was determined that you in sexually assaulted six non relative children in Waukesha it does but these crimes came to light in January of twenty twenty last month would one victim came forward and reported the prior crimes the police Ewing was arrested and charged at January twenty fourth Waukesha county with four counts of repeated sexual assault of a child and one count of sexual assault of a child under sixteen his victims are non relative children raging free ranging in age from infant to teen age at are both male and female let me interject again this is very unusual I didn't say nonexistent most of these people and we've covered so many of these stories over the years have an animal or a pattern there into a certain type teenage boys teenage girls preteen boys preteen girls maybe a relative like their own child this guy was a broad base the fender everything from an infant two teenagers again I'm not saying it doesn't happen I'm saying that this is not the norm so you he's a real secco ad we also know that there's a pattern prior to these charges that they brought here in Wisconsin now in January of twenty twenty all these charges dating back in a little eighty to eighty five eighty six nineteen ninety three all those cases in Illinois they again all ran the gamut in terms of the type of offense and the type of victim back to the release from the Waukesha police you would would be friend the family and offered to watch the children or take the children to the park well the parents were Holman rad errands or were at work you and has a small fishing boat and camping gear and possibly use those to spend time alone with the children the Waukesha police department is asking for the communities help in locating potential additional victims of sexual assault if you recognize Ewing and all over the media they got photos of him and the police released a compilation of photos of him throughout the years you can go back and take a look at yeah if you recognize Ewing it up had knowledge that he had unsupervised access to children in Wisconsin from nineteen ninety six to the present contact detective Shelley feature of the Waukesha police department and then there's the number listed on that release and that number is widely available I will read if you're on the air but it's available in a number of places so I think there's a fear that this is like master and wish I'd probably not as many as here but that there may be multiple cases where do you think about it you know go back say it's twenty three years to go ahead the dirty old man you hear messed around with your kid you decide that it's not in the best interest to be the your kid are you to tell the authorities to think it's isolated it somebody came forward and I don't know I it may perhaps the information is out there I don't know what the victim came forward now for that resulted in this but it led to this investigation that nailed all of these things down with this guy Ewing there's so much that I can say about this that I don't have time to do it because I want to move on but one of the tragedies of this is it's making it very difficult for adults who want to do things like mentor usage boy scout leaders or just say a religious leader who what's the care for children talk to the kids and work with them or for that matter just people who like kids maybe you're the guy that actually is like you know you you are for sure but it's some key I think of like leave it to beaver from back in the fifties beaver would go hang around with the fire chief doesn't sit down that there's some kids are just like to hang out and there are people nice people and there's still a lot of nice people like to work with kids that court youth sports teach kids how to play chess each of an instrument all that sort of thing you just all get suspicious of all of it because the perverts increase like this right I mean you had a kid if you had somebody that was going to be a music instructor when your daughters are yeah you're probably would think nothing of it that I bet you think something of it now the other point that I want to make wow I said we were clearly naive as a society to this problem back in the sixties seventies eighties and even into the nineties we don't have any excuse now and we have got to stop this nonsense a one year sentence probation two year sentence even when you lock these people up for twenty years if they're thirty would you lock them up there with the fifty I have lost patience with the state legislature in Wisconsin both Republicans and Democrats in doing anything about the crime issue but of all the crimes we have where I believe we have been to Lee get sexual crimes against children is number one in the last look at the number of teachers that we've convicted recently they got one year of probation or two years maybe or you know a year and a half with work release and so on learning nothing from any of these cases let me move up we had in Milwaukee last night within an hour and a half of one another two people killed buy automobiles in both drivers were according to the police intoxicated and they happened very close to one another totally unrelated to what other the circumstances were completely different other dad in both cases it was the near west side of Milwaukee in both cases the drivers are charged with W. why and in both cases it was a pedestrian even the walks of life of the two victims could not be more different the brand new dean of our cat business school in fact he's been the subject of numerous news stories just the last few weeks because you just name to the job Joe Daniels I don't believe I've met him and I always cautious about this because maybe I did I don't remember it but I have heard a number of people speak highly of him that he's one of those people that buy a cat that had the support of just about everybody and everybody liked but they thought it was a great choice to be the deal so I trust in the street and have them Scott's six US six o'clock or so in the evening actually related that around eight so it was dark he apparently was crossing in the crosswalk when there was a green and Wisconsin but the driver was driving at a high rate of speed and was apparently intoxicated according to the authorities so I don't know if he was cross to get just started to get across to the person was driving so fast if the person beard who does there is an old W. why charge against the driver and we don't know anything more about it other than that in the meantime at twenty fifty Claiborne flyboard he has two blocks to the south of Wisconsin it individual was in the media you're allowed to stay out of the media he was on one of those concrete islands in there Eddie was struck by a vehicle before the details came out I instantly knew what that was you probably would not know instantly what that is well well know what what the delivery what what's going on here well yeah that's it but why is it why why is the guy in the media to twenty five the clapboard every corner near there is worked by Pat the others and indeed that's what this guy was doing he's standing in the media because you can get the traffic.
"catholic church" Discussed on Romans Road
"They're sending if they believe the promises offices of God they're sending That's how distorted the Catholic religion really is and most of the Catholics. I have met and come across and I haven't met all of them but the ones I have met. They don't seem to be too versed on their own doctrine. It's almost like they're more similar to myself. When I was a Catholic to where I just kind of had enough religion in me to satisfy on my own conscience to think that I was on my way to heaven never really cared about studying any kind of Catholic book other than in the books I studied when I went through communion and confession and did all the the rituals that I did and I've actually been street witnessing hang on a pretty regular basis for about the past ten years? I've talked to a lot of Catholics in that time. I have only one time. Have I run into to Catholics. Who actually knew their own doctrine? I was out open. Air Preaching oceanside in a group of young people. They were in their twenties. They came around and they were asking questions and come to find out. This is a group from from a Catholic seminary and and they were very interested in Gospel presentation because there is it was like. Oh here's a protestant. Let's ask them some questions and so I talked to them for it. It was a couple of hours and and you know it was great conversation. But this is the only time I've ever actually run into Catholics. Who Know Oh their stuff you know why is that? Why is it that it just seems like most most Catholics? They don't know all the doctrine Turin point. The main doctrinal points of their own church. They don't they can't explain why they have a pope right now. Who has said things like well if if this this little kids? Dad is an atheist. As long as he's a good person he could probably go to heaven to that goes totally against not only the Bible but Catholic teaching you you know and so I know I know. It's kind of a big big convoluted question but basically why is it. That most of the of the Catholics. I run into you. You just don't know a whole lot about their own catholicism or you're talking about the majority of Roman Catholics but you do have to extremes you've got the twice a year Catholics in even more extreme than that you have. Those are Catholic by name only and they don't go to church but if you ever say anything that might be exposing the air then they come to the defense at the church they go to anymore. So you've got those on one extreme then you've got the other extreme you've got former Protestants. Now that are becoming the teaching authority authority of the Catholic. Yes I've heard. And they're converted to Catholicism. They know their scriptures and so they're teaching their followers how to defend against Evangelical Alex's that come witnessing but in the middle of those two extremes are the ones that you talk about. I don't mean to say this derogatorily but most Catholics exchequer brain at the door. They go through the rituals during the mass. They leave early then. They put God on the shelf. And they don't think about him until the next week when they're mandated to come back to the sacrifice of the mass under the penalty of mortal sin. Catholicism is very empty religion there is no hope in the Catholic church they have conditional life. There's no promise of eternal live given by the Catholic Church and so most Catholics are just nominal Catholics. You know they're proud the be a Catholic because they're told it's the one true church and just stick with us and we'll get you into heaven albeit through a detour and purgatory but yeah that's the. That's the mindset answer most Catholics there disinterested with anything pretending the spiritual truth now once. I left the Catholic Church and the reason I left was basically because I started reading the Bible and started understanding. What what it said and saw just a lot of differences between the Bible that the Catholic Church claims is there a and there was so many things in it there were totally against what they do and what they believe and so eventually left the Catholic Church but I would still go back once in a while for maybe a family Christmas service type of thing or some kind of a family event? I finally stopped going to those those kinds of things because I just couldn't stomach. What was going on in the altar when they would do their communion service when they will do their you know pre presenting the host right and so even though I didn't know much doctrine at all I didn't know a whole lot of Bible at this point this was early on? It's still just absolutely disgusted. Me that In my eyes it seemed what they were doing is they. Were bringing being back. Jesus in order to do some ritual with him and then they were letting him aside and doing it again the next day and it was like as if this guy the front body had the power to bring Jesus back on will and I'm thinking this is Jesus. He's going to judge this guy he's going to judge the living and the dead. He's he's he's he's a king he's not some thing that you can just make and do a little ritual. So what are the main issues with. What's going on up there at the Alter Trans substantiation I believe is the term? Could you explain that to explain that to me why I got so mad about this thing. I was seeing up their father John. O'Brien in his book. Faith of millions explains what happens at the sacrifice of the mass from that from the Catholic point of view. It's got the imprimature the Catholic Church. So this official Catholic pitching buddy. He writes it. When the priest speaks the words of consecration he pulls Christ down from His throne in heaven? and Jesus the UM flip it and all powerful God bows had and humble obedience to the priests command goes on to say this as a power greater than that of saints and Angels this is. This is an official official cap. TEACHING CAPRICE SPEAKS AND LOW Christ. Eternal Independent God bows is head and humble obedience to the priests command. This is Roman Catholocism. A Central Priest has the power to call Jesus down from heaven to continue on an altar. What he finished on the Cross and If Catholics only knew this my wife was a Catholic also but she never believed that she was eating the physical body and blood of Christ. Because that's that's what they teach us. That was a very devout Catholic. I believed it. I'm leaving. I was consuming consuming. Jesus and boy when God over my eyes so repulsive to think that that's what the Catholic Church teaches and practices. And it's the Very Nature Syrup deception. It's indoctrination so powerful that Catholics just believe in. Don't ask questions. So how does that work so in in the mind of the priests or anyone. WHO's believing that that teaching from what I understand? Trans substantiation term where when a Catholic is eating being their communion wafer in some way they're actually eating the physical body of Christ like how like how uh-huh what what is it. They believe the other subsidies remains the same but the inner substances changed into the Physical Body and blood of Christ through the quote unquote miracle of Trans France substantiation. But again it's It's not a miracle it's a hoax sits counterfeit Christ Catholics. Who worshiped the Eucharist or committing the most serious area Senate by dollar tree because we know that it's a false? Christ Jesus said I must remain in heaven until my enemies have been made my footstool elax chapter three. So he's still in heaven. Yeah and then Hebrews nine twenty eight says he will return again not an association with sin. He will turn a second back in time and so we know from scripture that the priest doesn't have the power to call Jesus down he's remaining heaven he will return the second time the Bible well says when where and how when after the tribulation where to the Mount of Olives how the same way he left and so this is a false Christ its idolatry great and conflicts. Need to know this tell you when I was talking to those seminary students on the pier. We were having a great conversation I I was doing doing doing my best using scripture to answer all their questions. How does the person get to heaven? WH WH who. Who are the saints and all these different things but the thing that came up that caused me just to need to bow out of the conversation was because the the issue of the Eucharist came up and I actually started getting so upset in the conversation it was? It was first and only time I've ever been witnessing to someone where I just had the lead the conversation because I was getting extremely angry. Yes you know and and it was it was it was horrible and it just it just that experience. Just kind of solidified. What I what I felt in my in my younger days when I left the church? It's such a horrible viola. I of blasphemous really teaching. And like you said most Catholics. Don't even think about the. I never thought about that while I was in the church once I came out and I realize is what was what was going on. It was just such a revelation. Okay so you've given us three things to kind of camp out on or or at least make sure we we bring this up with with Catholics. What are some good questions that you ask Catholics? When you're getting into conversations with the acronym fire because it's really a good way to engage people? F- stands for friendship Family upbringing you ask questions about how they were growing growing up and then I is interest. What common interests do you have? are would be Your religious upbringing. Where'd you go to Church What what kind of denomination nomination or you talk about their religious background and after you've asked those questions F I r then the is evangelize? Now you have the answers that you I need. You can know which direction ago but some of the questions. How does your church teach that they have any hope of going to heaven? It's amazing what Catholics respond bond. Well I don't know that churches ever taught us that you would think that's what you church for you but unfortunately a lot of Protestant churches. I don't think that's very true. so Are you ready to meet your Creator. You know one day we will all stand before our creator. He will either be sent avenging evenging judge or a glorious savior and you have time on this earth to put your trust in him so that when you meet him he is your savior but if you reject actum then you will meet him as a sin evenging judge and you'll have to pay for the penalty of your own sends. So that's another great question Where do you go for truth? You know uh-huh and so often Catholics will say well I just look within you. Know I'm sure that Whatever I believe in my heart is true and they need to know that the heart is deceptively wicked and who can trust it and it goes directly against the Bible? Yeah sometimes they'll say their priests there. Pope Yeah just my experience. My experience in life But then and you have to share with them. There's only one infallible source. That will never mislead you never deceive you. And that's Christ. In his word he is the truth. So there's some good questions where do you hope to spend eternity. Hope it seven you can know for sure right here and now so that really is the issue. Is that a Catholic based on the teaching. They're receiving and everything they know about God. They've learned the church they can't know they can't know where they're going is. It's it's based on what they do rather than what crisis done And so if someone thinks they're going basically they would just be seen as proud sure. How could you possibly know that? Uh Uh F- that good. How do you show a person in a in a quick kind of way not that we have to be quick with everybody we talk to? How do you just get to the point of showing a Catholic that getting to heaven being right with God is not based on what they do to verses that have said so many Roman Catholics free would be a phasing two eight nine four by grace you have been saved through faith? It is not of yourselves..

It is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God not not of works so that no man they boast and you ask a Catholic. What does that mean to you? It's not of yourself. It's not of works. So so. Why are you trusting what you're doing? And then that of course leads to the question. Well how then can I be saved and then you point to Christ as the all sufficient savior now officials to eighty nine. It says we we are saved by by grace and yet within Catholicism one of the issues that comes up is just an understanding of that word grace thanks to a Catholic the word grace it can mean something different than it means to a Christian. Can you talk about does a paragraph twenty twenty seven of the catechism MHM says. Catholics must merit the grace's necessary for eternal life. So the question then is how do you merit the unmerited favor of God because because that's what Biblical grace's it's the unmerited favor it's given freely by God and so you have to define terms when you're witnessing the Catholics wchs that interesting in mormonism or something similar in that same verse. The Book Mormon I believe is where it says you are saved by grace through faith after all all you can do so. So they're hitting on that same issue then. The the false religions do not want to point people towards the grace of God and that really is the difference between the Bible and not just Catholicism but every other religion it seems like just the issue of grace versus works. You know another question. I like to ask anyone whether it be Catholic or Christian or anyone. That doesn't even know. God Yeah why did Jesus after die boy. It get your right to the core of the Gospel. I've as I I'll talk to people who say they go to a Christian church and they can't. They can't answer that question sometimes. Yeah that's a great with all stars with the wages of Senna's death and Jesus went to the Cross dissatisfied divine justice dying in the place of repenting centers is so that they will not have to face the punishment of God. Yeah now just WANNA ask a couple more questions here. Ju just these are things that come up when talking a to Catholics specifically the one thing that Catholics love to say. Is You know what you wouldn't even have the Bible. If it wasn't for my church. The Catholic Church gave gave you the Bible. How do you answer that? Well there's a lot of ways to answer that the number one. The cather church wasn't even in existence when the Old Testament was written in so so we have the Old Testament in spite of the Catholic Church so usually talking about the new test when they make that claim and so in the New Testament how we know from scripture got inspired forty different men over fifteen hundred year period on three different continents all from different walks of life they penned the inspired word of God. The Pappas those letters were passed around the different churches people recognize them as holy scripture even before a castle convene in to represent them as part of the cannon and so the Early Church knew that these were the inspired writings of the apostles and Many were willing to die. For the truth found in these sacred writings they scriptures and so they were first person eye witnesses to the life and Resurrection Direction of Christ. And so we know from The Early Church that people that understood the scriptures they knew they were inspired writings of God. We see from Second Timothy. I just happened to have the scripture open. All scripture is given by inspiration of God and profitable for doctrine for reproof for correction for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete thoroughly equipped for every good work. All scripture is given by an inspiration of God so this is God breathed he. He breathed the scriptures into the apostles who penned into the proper as and. That's how we know that scripture is from God I also tell Catholic is like set. We have the Bible in spite of your religion because it was your religion the place it on the list of forbidden books of the council trucks and another thing. I tell Catholic like since you think you gave us the Bible. Why don't you abide in it so true? You gave us the Bible but most Catholics. Don't read it. That's a great point by by the way the cannon was primarily to eliminate spurious books now when you say the cannon you mean the collection of the council because establish the cannon Okay was initially to eliminate spurious books. There's many books vying for cannon this city but the the councils he's got together and said no these are the inspired writings and these are not the picture people give that this church council had a meeting and they said okay. We're GONNA put this this book in the Bible. We're going to put that book in the Bible. But you're saying that wasn't at all. They already had their scriptures and they were getting rid of books that were originally not inspired. Okay another issue that comes up with Catholics. This is one of the big ones. Is the assertion that Peter was the first pope and ever since. That's him there have been a succession of popes and now the pope is here today. He is the authority from God and they base that on. Jesus called Peter the Rock and he said on this rock. I will build my church and so how do you address. Yes Matthew Sixteen eighteen and she's just asked the question who the men say that I am and Peter Said you're the Christ the son of the Living God and Jesus said this was revealed to you not by man but my father in heaven and Peter Upon this this rock I will build my church. What did Peter just do? You just made a profession of faith divinely inspired by God and Heaven As to who Christ is so anyone who who makes that same profession of faith revealed by God in heaven. WE'LL BE PART OF CHRIST church and we know that Jesus wasn't referring to Peter as the rock because because a few verses later Jesus talks about going to Jerusalem to die for his church before he builds it and pater said Lord may never be Jesus said get behind me Satan. You have in mind the things of men rather than the things of God. So this doesn't sound like Jesus would build his church on on a fallible man who just got Satan who just said Peter was the mouthpiece of the devil so clearly scripture tells us that the Rock was Christ Christ. Paul said that I granted and we say all the way through the psalms. God was the Rock even Peter referred to himself as a fellow elder. And then and one more thing that I have heard many Catholics. Say in you know we my point out the fact that the Bible says it were to not have any idols before us where to only pray to God and Catholics will pray to Mary. They do a lot of things in regards to marry and one of the things that Catholics will say. You know. They'll say we're not praying to Mary. We're not worshiping Mary where praying through Mary. It's like if I wanted something from you. I might ask your mom and she might put in a good word for me more. They might say something like you know. We're not actually worshiping her. We're just venerating her. What does that even mean? Like what are they doing there. Well well they are praying to Mary and they start off with Hail Mary. That's addressing the very petitioning her. The reason Catholics feel comfortable praying to Mary. He is because the Catholic Church has created another Mary. It's a perversion of the true Mary. Mary herself in the Bible. Yeah okay okay. Mary herself needed a savior. She called God her savior. Only centers need savior and so for Catholics to pray to Mary because she's she's been given a lot of divine attributes. She's said to be the media tricks of all grace. She said to be the advocate which is a title given to Christ. She's she's the Queen of Heaven crisis the King so everything that they've given the Christ they Passover and given attribute to marry they haven't called her omniscient this show or Omni present but she would have to be one point two billion Catholics or praying to her the only way she could hear all of them is if she were. I'm Nisshin Omnipresence presence. And she'd know she'd ups all languages and I challenged Catholics Show me one verse in the Bible where God fearing person praise to anyone. One other than God. Well you want to you. Want them to get on the Bible Challenge. Yeah find the verse and maybe well. They're in there. The rest of their faith will be challenged as they read the scriptures refute their religion. Well Mike you've given us a lot of good information here as we go to our Catholic friends the neighbors this can get very heated. It's not always easy to talk to someone especially when it's issues of religion things that are so close to people and in your talking about people's Traditions and their families and they've grown up with this stuff. What advice can you give us? As far as if I'm going to talk to someone about you Catholicism and wanting to get them to see the deception behind it what advice can you give us as far as not turning it into a big argument or a fight or you know. What are we as Christians need to do? As we're reaching out to Catholics with the truth of the Gospel well keep in mind unbelievers. Do Not WanNA WANNA be preached at so unaffected. Way is to ask them questions that we've talked about but we never can't argue anyone to heaven. All we're called to do is to deliver the a message from the pages of scripture to the person's ear. Yeah Gaza responsible. Take it from the year to the heart so we have been successful when we have shared the word of God the Gospel of Christ with them. And I encourage when you're witnessing the Catholics. If they have their own Bible sit down and open it point them to scriptures ask them what is God saying there and that way it eliminates any arguments because it's their interpretation. They can't say it's yours because you're not interpreting right there just recently you're right and you were saying and early. You'll even do that with their Catholic version viable because they're told not to trust anything from a Protestant church so you eliminate an obstacle by using their Bible all and they've got the same sixty six books that we do. They've added a few but we don't have to go there. Be Christ like speak. The truth in love have compassion and recognize. I said not. Everybody is going to humble themselves under the sovereign word of God. If you sense that they have not a teachable spirit. Maybe it's time to to leave a Gospel track and say let's get together again and talk some more whenever the discussion starts to get heated or ornamented. That's probably a time to to leave Gospel tracking and come back later. Yeah and we can't ever forget the power of prayer and this is a spiritual battle and unless the spirit of God is is involved in the word of God will not place any impact on the person. That's hearing it. We know that There's two things necessary confer conversion the word of God Moscow Osco forest and the spirit of God and a spring conviction. So that's why it's so important to pray that God would open their eyes. Open their hearts. As the Open Lydia's heart and then impre the word of God would be the imperishable see that finds fertile soil in their heart begins to grow and bring forth life. Amen Okay and so. If we're going to UH and that conversation and leave a Gospel track we are going to want to leave some of Mike Proclaiming the truth tracks. Mike if you could just tell us one more time what is. What is your a website where we could find these at? The website is proclaiming the Gospel Dot. Org We have six different gospel tracks all designed to reach people that are lost on religion.

"They're sending if they believe the promises offices of God they're sending That's how distorted the Catholic religion really is and most of the Catholics. I have met and come across and I haven't met all of them but the ones I have met. They don't seem to be too versed on their own doctrine. It's almost like they're more similar to myself. When I was a Catholic to where I just kind of had enough religion in me to satisfy on my own conscience to think that I was on my way to heaven never really cared about studying any kind of Catholic book other than in the books I studied when I went through communion and confession and did all the the rituals that I did and I've actually been street witnessing hang on a pretty regular basis for about the past ten years? I've talked to a lot of Catholics in that time. I have only one time. Have I run into to Catholics. Who actually knew their own doctrine? I was out open. Air Preaching oceanside in a group of young people. They were in their twenties. They came around and they were asking questions and come to find out. This is a group from from a Catholic seminary and and they were very interested in Gospel presentation because there is it was like. Oh here's a protestant. Let's ask them some questions and so I talked to them for it. It was a couple of hours and and you know it was great conversation. But this is the only time I've ever actually run into Catholics. Who Know Oh their stuff you know why is that? Why is it that it just seems like most most Catholics? They don't know all the doctrine Turin point. The main doctrinal points of their own church. They don't they can't explain why they have a pope right now. Who has said things like well if if this this little kids? Dad is an atheist. As long as he's a good person he could probably go to heaven to that goes totally against not only the Bible but Catholic teaching you you know and so I know I know. It's kind of a big big convoluted question. But you know basically. Why is it that most of the of the Catholics I run into you? You just don't know a whole lot about their own catholicism or you're talking about the majority of Roman Catholics but you do have to extremes you've got the twice a year Catholics in even more extreme than that you have. Those are Catholic by name only and they don't go to church but if you ever say anything that might be exposing the air then they come to the defense at the church they go to anymore. So you've got those on one extreme then you've got the other extreme you've got former Protestants. Now that are becoming the teaching authority authority of the Catholic. Yes I've heard. And they're converted to Catholicism. They know their scriptures and so they're teaching their followers how to defend against Evangelical Alex's that come witnessing but in the middle of those two extremes are the ones that you talk about. I don't mean to say this derogatorily but most Catholics exchequer brain at the door. They go through the rituals during the mass. They leave early then. They put God on the shelf. And they don't think about him until the next week when they're mandated to come back to the sacrifice of the mass under the penalty of mortal sin. Catholicism is very empty religion there is no hope in the Catholic church they have conditional life. There's no promise of eternal live given by the Catholic Church and so most Catholics are just nominal Catholics. You know they're proud the be a Catholic because they're told it's the one true church and just stick with us and we'll get you into heaven albeit through a detour and purgatory but yeah that's the. That's the mindset answer most Catholics there disinterested with anything pretending the spiritual truth now once. I left the Catholic Church and the reason I left was basically because I started reading the Bible and started understanding. What what it said and saw just a lot of differences between the Bible that the Catholic Church she claims is there a and there was so many things in it there were totally against what they do and what they believe and so eventually left the Catholic Church but I would still go back once in a while for maybe a family Christmas service type of thing or some kind of a family event? I finally stopped going to those those kinds of things because I just couldn't stomach. What was going on in the altar when they would do their communion service when they will do their you know pre presenting the host right and so even though I didn't know much doctrine at all I didn't know a whole lot of Bible at this point this was early on? It's still just absolutely disgusted. Me that In my eyes it seemed what they were doing is they. Were bringing being back. Jesus in order to do some ritual with him and then they were letting him aside and doing it again the next day and it was like as if this guy the front body had the power to bring Jesus back on will and I'm thinking this is Jesus. He's going to judge this guy he's going to judge the living and the dead. He's he's he's he's a king he's not some thing that you can just make and do a little ritual. So what are the main issues with. What's going on up there at the Alter Trans substantiation I believe is the term? Could you explain that to explain that to me why I got so mad about this thing. I was seeing up their father John. O'Brien in his book. Faith the millions explains what happens at the sacrifice of the mass from that from the Catholic point of view. It's got the imprimature the Catholic Church. So this official Catholic the teaching buddy. He writes it. When the priest speaks the words of consecration he pulls Christ down from His throne in heaven? and Jesus the UM flip it and all powerful God bows had and humble obedience to the priests command goes on to say this as a power greater than that of saints and Angels this is. This is an official official cap. TEACHING CAPRICE SPEAKS AND LOW Christ. Eternal Independent God bows is head and humble obedience to the priests command. This is Roman Catholocism. A Central Priest has the power to call Jesus down from heaven to continue on an altar. What he finished on the Cross and If Catholics only knew this my wife was a Catholic also but she never believed that she was eating the physical body and blood of Christ. Because that's that's what they teach us. That was a very devout Catholic. I believed it. I'm leaving. I was consuming consuming. Jesus and boy when God over my eyes so repulsive to think that that's what the Catholic Church teaches and practices. And it's the Very Nature Syrup deception. It's indoctrination so powerful that Catholics just believe in. Don't ask questions. So how does that work so in in the mind of the priests or anyone. WHO's believing that that teaching from what I understand? Trans substantiation term where when a Catholic is eating being their communion wafer in some way they're actually eating the physical body of Christ like how like how uh-huh what what is it. They believe the other subsidies remains the same but the inner substances changed into the Physical Body and blood of Christ through the quote unquote miracle of Trans France substantiation. But again it's It's not a miracle it's a hoax sits counterfeit Christ Catholics. Who worshiped the Eucharist or committing the most serious area Senate by dollar tree because we know that it's a false? Christ Jesus said I must remain in heaven until my enemies have been made my footstool elax chapter three. So he's still in heaven. Yeah and then Hebrews nine twenty eight says he will return again not an association with sin. He will turn a second back in time and so we know from scripture that the priest doesn't have the power to call Jesus down he's remaining heaven he will return the second time the Bible well says when where and how when after the tribulation where to the Mount of Olives how the same way he left and so this is a false Christ its idolatry great and conflicts. Need to know this tell you when I was talking to those seminary students on the pier. We were having a great conversation I I was doing doing doing my best using scripture to answer all their questions. How does the person get to heaven? WH WH who. Who are the saints and all these different things but the thing that came up that caused me just to need to bow out of the conversation was because the the issue of the Eucharist came up and I actually started getting so upset in the conversation it was? It was first and only time I've ever been witnessing to someone where I just had the lead the conversation because I was getting extremely angry. Yes you know and and it was it was it was horrible and it just it just that experience. Just kind of solidified. What I what I felt in my in my younger days when I left the church it's just such a workable viola? I am blasphemous. Really Teaching and like you said most Catholics. Don't even think about the. I never thought about that while I was in the church once I came out and I realize is what was what was going on. It was just such a revelation. Okay so you've given us three things to kind of camp out on or or at least make sure we we bring this up with with Catholics. What are some good questions that you ask Catholics? When you're getting into conversations with the acronym fire because it's really a good way to engage people? F- stands for friendship Family upbringing you ask questions about how they were growing growing up and then I is interest. What common interests do you have? are would be Your religious upbringing. Where'd you go to Church What what kind of denomination nomination or you talk about their religious background and after you've asked those questions F I r then the is evangelize? Now you have the answers that you I need. You can know which direction ago but some of the questions. How does your church teach that they have any hope of going to heaven? It's amazing what Catholics respond bond. Well I don't know that churches ever taught us that you would think that's what you church for you but unfortunately a lot of Protestant churches. I don't think that's very true. so Are you ready to meet your Creator. You know one day we will all stand before our creator. He will either be sent avenging evenging judge or a glorious savior and you have time on this earth to put your trust in him so that when you meet him he is your savior but if you reject actum then you will meet him as a sin evenging judge and you'll have to pay for the penalty of your own sends. So that's another great question Where do you go for truth? You know uh-huh and so often Catholics will say well I just look within you. Know I'm sure that Whatever I believe in my heart is true and they need to know that the heart is deceptively wicked and who can trust it and it goes directly against the Bible? Yeah sometimes they'll say their priests there. Pope Yeah just my experience. My experience in life But then and you have to share with them. There's only one infallible source..

"catholic church" Discussed on The Bluestocking Baptists
"If we take the reality what Jesus is saying thing that if you believe in me of eternal life we can use the entirety of scripture to defend that positioning right but I just think it's important for us. We know that oftentimes Roman Catholics will flip to this immediately especially when they try to use scripture with us and just kind of really understanding manning was taking place you know I like to really emphasize. If you you know so imprisons a verse or passage to you is so important I'm to read before and after was taking place in what they're what they're presenting to you because way too often people take as it is in verses out of context text and and in this case they oftentimes do so anyway. That's a little bit about community and the differences there just one quick question the best way to summarize that would be that the Chris is more of a will 'cause. There's multiple different views N. Christianity of what in the Lord's supper is but it would be the UK's would be the belief that they're actually feeding on the physical body of Jesus Christ correct. Let's absolutely right. They they think that they think the priests is given the divine ability to turn the wafer and wine and to actual flesh and blood so that's why it's important to understand that John Six is not saying in which the doctrine would be trans is at Transportation Association that when you say that it's the context is faith in Jesus Christ what he's referring to because he is the bread of life when family gives them internal life. Yes thank you for pointing that out clarifying that yeah they they do hundred percent believe that it's the body and blood and so that is why why they used as passage so often because when you don't understand the reality of what Jesus teaching it is there's almost sound like he's literally saying flesh and drink my blood third different. yeah didn't have they third difference would be baptism. Baptism awesome is essentially an hour expression of emerged faith. for the Roman Catholic. I pulled of their catechism section twelve thirteen which says only baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life the gateway to life in the spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Let's through baptism we are freed from sin and reborn sons of God we become members of Christ are incorporated into the Church and made shares in her mission and that doesn't is a sacrament of generation through water and the word okay so one thing to really understand Dan here baptism essentially for the Roman Catholic wipes away the sin of original Sin Guy and what original sentence essentially really the sin of Adam that they believe stained all of humanity guy and in order to remove that Sen from individual individual they must become ties which is why they baptize all infants to give them a clean slate. That's right that's right and and and you know we don't really have time to discuss this they do baptize pretty much on the eighth day which is quite similar to circumcision uh-huh and they will say that the to correlate quite a bit but anyway studying. Colossians and other passages were led to believe that others quite a difference. There is a big difference. Let me break in Hanoi could you because I know that a lot of our listeners are some of them could be. Maybe leaning. Were Presbyterian briefly explained that like other different yeah. Could you explain that yeah so I want to know that Roman Roman Catholicism Baptism is the belief in like Mike saying I don't. I don't know as much about Roman Catholicism so I won't do it as much justice but I can't explain how patriotism is different from a like. A confessional reformed stands but essentially Roman Catholicism is is there is regeneration happening essentially so you are justified by baptism in a way that that if you were to die after your baptism you would not go to hell is that is that correct. Mike Okay so so then for baptism because I can explain that more clearly. Pedro Baptists do not believe that baptism brings them into Union Dan with Christ and they do not believe that a child is regenerated at it's at the child's baptism paper. Baptists believe that that at baptism it is a means of grace the way that they view it so something is happening but not in the sense of saving or wiping away original sin Presbyterian tyrians or reformed confessional believers believe that baptism is bringing the child into covenant with Christ so they would also believe that got it is mirroring circumcision and that the child is now a covenant child so brought into brought into the visible church because there's an invisible and visible distinction in the church from a reformed perspective so the child is not saved at baptism. The child is not having their original sin wiped away way at Baptism. Baptism is bringing them into the visible church with the rest of God's Church. 'cause they view it has a mirroring of circumscription and just like everyone who was circumcised in Israel was of Israel and Israel not everyone in Israel was spiritually Israel so a child will have to grow up and they're they are not allowed to take communion until they have come to faith in so when a child is regenerated a Presbyterian Aaron or form believer will affirm that that that person was not regenerated at baptism that the subjective grace of the Holy Spirit of God has saved them at his choosing according to his good pleasure when he so desires in so not every child is elected not every child will be saved but it's according to God's God so choosing God bringing that person to faith and then at that point that's when the baptism the benefits of baptism from reformed confessional professional perspective are are given to the child so they they have the benefits the Westminster Confession will read to regeneration and several different things you you could read it but it's it's not saying that generations given at baptism it saying that now these things these things are true to the person now because they were saved by faith because now they are a believer. I'm just going off memory right now so I hope I'm doing it. Justice compared to give that as an explanation the nation good. I just WanNa make sure that we show that. There's a big difference. Between Roman Catholic baptism and reformed historic patio patio baptism yes and then federal vision is not Presbyterian. Ism just to throw that in there but that's a different topic Abbott different anyway yeah all right. That's your okay so the I just kinda passage out like the bring got regarding baptism would be I peter three twenty one it what's interesting about this passage or this verse really is that both sides can claim that it defends their own inside so I'll read it. You know it says baptism was co-responsibility responsiveness which Peter is talking about. Nila now saves you not as a removal of dirt from the body but it has an appeal to God for good conscious okay so really the the Roman Catholic will sit here and say Okay Yeah See Peter. Literally says Baptism was corresponds to this aisle saves you and what I I would say is okay if that were true then would it make more sense that Peter would put a period right after the right that he would stop that would be as one and only point point. He doesn't right he says batches which corresponds to this now saves you not as removal of dirt from the by as an appeal to God for good conscience in the not ah removal dirt is significant their body right in other words like this act of baptism doesn't remove the stain of anything from you but rather this this act of baptism is an appeal to God right for good conscience and that's I like to use his passage to kind of defend or positioning sometimes Roman Catholics due to but I think it's just a matter of really understanding kind of what's what Peter's talking about in in really the whole the whole passage so I just kinda continuing on baptism there three of coins. I'd like to make that kind of defend this idea or the reality that that doesn't it doesn't save that kind of like we talked about earlier. The only thing that does save is is our faith right Romans ten nine hundred ten. That's the first first one right it's confession in its believing in our heart that is enough for us right and then thief on the cross the thief on the Cross is an absolutely beautiful notable example but it looks like to be saved when someone can be a thief right their whole entire lights and then on the point of which you know they are crucified the worst form of punishment and hearing Jesus pray for those who are crucifying him. He then believes in Jesus and Jesus says you'll be with me forever in Eternal Paradise it is that confession of faith it is that faith he hasn't Jesus in the moment that carries them into salvation. and I mean like I said it's just one of the most beautiful examples of what it looks like to be safe now. I'll just mentioned this I had a Roman Catholic like tell me well. How do you not know he wasn't baptize before it was crucified. no. I mean I heard that before far right and and it really it really just kind of blows while when I hear that it it Kinda just really values the the reality example and really what's taking place here but anyway that is something that I have been presented before like saying that John like saying that John the Baptist baptized the thief because he was was the thief Jewish or was he a Roman citizen. I don't know I don't know it doesn't say right now. I know it you know when you have to add things description to make it with your theology. It's a problem yeah Johnson. What's the problem so yeah. It's not something that I give a lot of time to went on. Discussing things with mcadoo is just it's a bit of an excuse excuse me and then the third point would be a John. Three fifteen and this is a in this passage. John is referencing being a numbers twenty two twenty two when the Israelites were in the wilderness and they're being disobedient the Lord sense serpents upon them and commands ends Moses to make a bronze serpent put it on a staff and raise it up and any of Israelites look upon that and believe would be saved from the serpent's grants and John uses us to directly illustrate three sixteen will we're all familiar with that if we look upon Jesus Christ in the sacrifice that he made for us and we believe in Him we will be saved from arson guy so those are just kind of free points that I really wanted to make when it comes to baptism and the fact that Baptism Gives Zero Salvation Grace Guy. There are graces involve a nothing that pertains to the righteousness of the one thing. That's that's interesting that you can kind of question presents. A Roman Catholic talking about baptism is just raising the question what if someone believes the dies before getting that does okay and I've actually come across two answers regarding this and some I'm will tell you that if they don't get back dozen legacy to hell and some will say that yeah they baptize or they they're saved without getting baptize because of their face and when they say that then that's the perfect opportunity push you know faith alone the Gospel Yeah right exactly exactly in that they're not being consistent with their own catechism to light show them. Hey what about what about your catechism here. We got a minute long night. 'cause we got lots of questions all right so our second question chant is what is the highest rule of authority of faith and practice in the Roman Catholic Church. It's a good question so the way I guess I'll present this would be that there are essentially three pillars within the Roman Catholic Church and those three would be tradition scripture and the magisterial get these things are very ah very deep right so again like I said earlier in its which don't really have the time to really dig into it but we will talk a little bit more about some of them on the second episode but essentially tradition the Roman Catholic is everything that the church is practiced since its founding in my opinion around around three thousand five hundred and one thing I would just point out is that we also kind of hold fast ask to tradition as well. The only difference is that our tradition is found in scripture right so what we find in scripture especially especially in acts is the same thing that we do now two thousand years ago right and that to me is tradition absolutely tradition but for for the Roman Catholic there are traditions that had been adopted established by the Church that have taken place over time for example of Marian Dogmas and doctrines those weren't those didn't really come about until six hundred a d and so there are just these traditions that can be brought into the charge established by the church and then just multiple different things that I guess can really be considered tradition that the church equates dates right authority with authority with a scripture in the magister him scripture they affirmed that scripture is another a pillar of authority within the church and in the Magister Magister is is essentially the clergy of of the Roman Catholic Church and just to keep it simple that would be the pope bishops and the priests can what's interesting interesting about this I kinda liked to raise as a question to Roman Catholics on talk about them is the fact that the Roman Catholic really has to be honest with the fact that the magisterial has really I mean essentially has more authority than tradition and scripture simply because is the magistrate has the power to define what other them mean in relation to the Roman Catholic. I hope that makes sense but it within the church the rat the majesty room is what defines scripture and it is what defines tradition or example the pope in the magisterial them with he has the authority to declare what is Dogma what is doctrine was allowed in the church and what's not allowed in the church.

We gotta move on the state of the union was boring. But you know, it's not boring as the Catholic church, boy, boy, these Catholic priest or something else they really are bunch of scoundrels what they do this time. Yeah. How do you mean? Mark. What do they do this little choirboys again? Yes. Of course, they did. But the few that weren't did link kids or in addition to that apparently were sexually assaulting nuns. Couple of hobbies. I mean, this kind of doesn't strike me as a surprise like. No, no. I mean, that's the most it's like the collection of the most sexually devious people in the world. It makes sense that they were that are closest exactly any whole. They can get into. I'm honestly growing up around a bunch of nuns in the Catholic church. I am surprised about this shit. Absolutely. Like, it's one thing to like tell a kid like don't you say anything, but these are grown adult women, but you're surprised after all to as both sides of my family, and I'm not surprised one bit by. Did you watch that Netflix special? Yeah. That was good. Oh, yeah. The women the lottery that was done on again. Those those are teenage girl. Okay. So on Tuesday. Pope Francis acknowledged the sexual abuse of nuns by priests and bishops for the first time publicly ever so talking to reporters he was kind asked about it. And Francis said yeah, my predecessor Pope Benedict. The sixteenth he had to shut down a French order after some of its nuns had been subjected to sexual slavery at the hands of priests. Yeah. That that's real bad. They had sexual slavery on on there. So it's pretty sad that he has to like us this deflection restocking to reporters because the alternative is talked about the kids. So he is like I'm going to have to just throw this out there. We've been back problems with the nuns. Yeah. Francis said the abusive religious sisters has gone on in the past and continues to happen. No shit. It's not that everyone does this. He said, but there have been priest and bishops who have and I think that it's continuing because it's not like once you realize it that it just stops it continues. And for some time we've been working on it. Should we do something more? Yes. Is there will? Yes. But it's a path that we've already begun translation. And that's a look we got a lot of wolves in the hen house in Rome wasn't built in a day. Wilson horny. Yeah. They got a lot of Horning wolves in that house are horny in robes and their in power got no underwear on clearly in the past year.
