God is good! I was greatly honord to speak at the 8th annual Catholic Men’s conference in San Antonio this past weekend. My talk was entitled, “Taking The Hill For God And Country: Stemming the tide of secularism and conquering the culture for Christ!” St. Padre Pio one wrote, “Who will ever separate or extinguish the fire that burns for You in my breast with such bright flames!” The world wants to burn… it deeply desires to lust after its disordered passions. The only remedy to a burning world, is a burning heart for Christ! So I ask… what’s in your chest?

“Gotcha! Paul says in Galatians 2:11, ‘But when Cephas came to Antioch I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.’ See? You Catholics say Peter was the first Pope and yet Paul puts him in his place. The catholic Church is not scriptural!” This is one of my personal favorites in the “gotcha” […]
“Gotcha!” St. Paul says in 1 Timothy 2:5, ‘… there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus…’ yet, you Catholics pray to Mary and the Saints! See? The Catholic Church is not scriptural!” Once, a few years ago, I stopped at a gas station to buy some coffee on my way […]
“Gotcha! Jesus said in Matthew 6:7, ‘But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking1‘ (King James version). See? All Catholic prayers are nothing more than vain repetition, a violation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!” Here is another one of […]
“Gotcha! Jesus says in Mark 7:8, ‘You abandon the commandment of God and hold to human tradition’‘1, yet you Catholics say tradition is as important as scripture. See! The Catholic Church makes void the Word of God!” Have you heard this before? Maybe from a friend, a loved one, or even a stranger? I know […]
“Gotcha! Mark 2:7 says, ‘Who can forgive sins but God alone?‘, but you Catholics say we are supposed to confess our sins to a priest… a mere human man! See? The Catholic Church is not scriptural!” Many non-Catholics struggle with the concept of confession to a Priest, so do many Catholics for that matter, because […]
If you have ever spent time debating non-Catholics on the scriptural basis of Catholic beliefs, invariably the discussion of “Sola Scriptura” will come up at some point. “Sola Scriptura” is latin for the “bible alone”, the protestant idea that the sole rule of faith is scripture… not tradition, and certainly not the Catholic Church. In […]
On a few occasions I have been approached by non-Catholic Christians about why Catholics hold Mary in so high a regard. The arguments are somewhat typical, “Why do you pray to Mary when 1 Timothy 2:5 says, ‘For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus‘?” […]
