Each topic-page is divided into sub-categories: articles, dialogues, debates, and Q&A. Visitors who are interested in suggesting an article or asking a question are encouraged to e-mail us their request.
Visiting apologist Robert Klaus makes short work of the dispensationalist error in approaching the Scriptures. He ably exposes the untenable Dispensational hyper-reliance (and distortion) of St. Paul's teachings.
Fellow Traditionalist, Mark Cameron, takes on CAI's president, Robert Sungenis, and his contention that Catholic Tradition does not support a future return of the Jews. On the contrary, Mark shows that there is ample patristic proof to suggest that such events may indeed occur. At the very least, we believe that our good friend Robert Sungenis should cut us a little bit of slack on this issue.
Some time ago, Martin Foord, Lecturer in Systematic and Historical Theology at Trinity Theological College (Perth, Australia) replied to Jacob Michael's article on the Book of Romans. Despite Jake's fine rescue effort the first time, Mr. Foord did not hang on to the life preserver. We hope that he avails himself of the one thrown to him this time.
In 1 Timothy 3:6, St. Paul gives the Church this advice: "He must not be a recent convert, or he may be puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil…" Tell us how a recent convert (i.e. a believer) can fall into the condemnation of the devil if he cannot lose his salvation?
In John 3:36, Jesus says this: "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God rests upon him." Why does Jesus use "obey" and "believe" interchangeably? Why does Jesus put a condition on eternal life by requiring obedience? If He does, how does that impact the doctrine of an irrevocable salvation?
Sippo and White exchange a few remarks on the differences between Catholic and Protestant justification. Sippo provides a wealth of Scripture to support the Catholic view. White relies on extra-biblical authorities.
