In this episode Jason delves into the Roman Catholic and Protestant views of justification. An analytic vs synthetic view of justification. Is the righteousness of Christ imputed to us or infused into us? Jason goes into the Council of Trent and the Roman Catholic Catechism to see if the Roman Catholic Church today still holds to their 16th century views. Are these differences still important today, do they still matter?
In this episode Jason interviews his wife Viviana on the subject of Roman Catholicism and her experience within the religion. Most Roman Catholics are nominal and traditional without much substance and adherence to even historical Roman Catholic beliefs. This was Viviana’s experience while a Roman Catholic and her observance of family and friends that are still within Roman Catholicism.
In this episode Jason covers an assortment of topics. First he briefly covers cage-stage Calvinism, then he goes into a lengthy conversation that occurred back in Oct 2015 on Twitter with a Roman Catholic on Mary being our mediator. After that discussion Jason goes into a discussion with an agnostic/atheist on morality and how the Triune nature of God must be assumed to provide a justification for objective morals. We look into how this distinguishes presuppositional apologetics from evidential and classical apologetics.
In this episode we discuss the Roman Catholic Church and their worship of Mary. We discuss the four Catholic dogmas on Mary in the Catholic Catechism and the fifth proposed dogma. We also go through the Marian apparitions in Guadalupe, Fatima and Medjugorje and what the apparitions say in comparison to the Word of God.
DO YOU KNOW FOR CERTAIN That what Roman Catholics teach is true?
If you are a devoted Roman Catholic and if you fully understand your faith, then please answer this question; “how did you come to a full understanding of faith?” Was it based on what you learned from a priest, a nun or a family member, or maybe someone else, or was it based on your own studies of the Bible?”
If you came to faith on your own, then this is great news. This means, you want to know God and the whole truth about Him. If you have never studied the Bible on your own and all that you know comes from learning it from someone else, then I have another question for you: “Have you ever tested what you learned, about your faith, by what the Bible says?”
You may be very surprised when you compare what you know and believe with what the Word of God says.
In this episode Jason discusses the latest infatuation the media and the Evangelical Protestant Church at large has for Pope Francis. We discuss the Protestant Reformation and the reasons for it. We look into what the Roman Catholic Church still teaches today and whether it is consistent with what the Bible teaches. We compare the Biblical Gospel to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
