Saved?

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:47 PM

Assurance of Salvation?There are few more confusing topics than salvation. It goes beyond the standard question posed by Fundamentalists: "Have you been saved?" What the question also means is: "Don’t you wish you had the assurance of salvation?" Evangelicals and Fundamentalists think they do have such an absolute assurance. ...

Christ in the Eucharist

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:46 PM

Christ in the EucharistProtestant attacks on the Catholic Church often focus on the Eucharist. This demonstrates that opponents of the Church—mainly Evangelicals and Fundamentalists—recognize one of Catholicism’s core doctrines. What’s more, the attacks show that Fundamentalists are not always literalists. This is seen in their interpretation of ...

The Real Presence

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:45 PM

The Real PresenceThe doctrine of the Real Presence asserts that in the Holy Eucharist, Jesus is literally and wholly present—body and blood, soul and divinity—under the appearances of bread and wine. Evangelicals and Fundamentalists frequently attack this doctrine as "unbiblical," but the Bible is forthright in declaring it (cf. 1 Cor. ...

The Mass

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:45 PM

The Sacrifice of the Mass The Eucharist is a true sacrifice, not just a commemorative meal, as "Bible Christians" insist. The first Christians knew that it was a sacrifice and proclaimed this in their writings. They recognized the sacrificial character of Jesus’ instruction, "Do this in remembrance of me" (Touto poieite tan eman anamnasin; ...

Confession

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:44 PM

ConfessionAre all of our sins—past, present, and future—forgiven once and for all when we become Christians? Not according to the Bible or the early Church Fathers. Scripture nowhere states that our future sins are forgiven; instead, it teaches us to pray, "And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors" (Matt. 6:12). The ...

Are Catholics born again?

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:43 PM

Are Catholics Born Again?Catholics and Protestants agree that to be saved, you have to be born again. Jesus said so: "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3).

Born again in baptism

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:42 PM

Born Again in BaptismOne key Scripture reference to being "born again" or "regenerated" is John 3:5, where Jesus says, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God." This verse is so important that those who say baptism is just a symbol must deny that ...

Methods of baptism

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:41 PM

Baptism: Immersion Only?Although Latin-rite Catholics are usually baptized by infusion (pouring), they know that immersion (dunking) and sprinkling are also valid ways to baptize. Fundamentalists, however, regard only baptism by immersion as true baptism, concluding that most Catholics are not validly baptized at all. Although the New Testament ...

Infant baptism

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:41 PM

Infant BaptismFundamentalists often criticize the Catholic Church’s practice of baptizing infants. According to them, baptism is for adults and older children, because it is to be administered only after one has undergone a "born again" experience—that is, after one has "accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior." ...

Do Catholics Worship Statues?"Catholics worship statues!" People still make this ridiculous claim.

Scripture References for Catholicism

Authored by admin on Tue, May 09 2006 - 07:37 PM

Scriptural Reference Guide The Catholic Church bases her teaching upon one source: The word of God. This divine revelation is transmitted in two ways: through Scripture and apostolic tradition. Many assume that only the writings of the apostles are the word of God. However, their oral transmission of the faith is also considered the word of ...
