Galatians and the Papacy

Paul’s Autobiographical Defense While preaching through the book of Galatians, a portion of the chapter became an interesting look into the first century relations between the people of God and the Apostles, and it dawned on me how powerful of a testimony this passage is against the claims of the Papacy from the Roman Catholic Church. When one reads through or thinks about the book … Continue reading Galatians and the Papacy

Honor Thy Fathers?

In dealing with Roman Catholic apologetics as long as I have, I am no stranger to discussions about the Early Church Fathers. There is a tendency for Protestants to very carefully pick and choose what quotes to share and which to ignore… It is for this reason that I wonder why Protestants are fascinated with the Fathers at all. Protestants necessarily have to discard or … Continue reading Honor Thy Fathers?

Matt Walsh and Predestination

Facts don’t care about your feelings. That is the tagline made popular by Ben Shapiro, a well-known political analyst. He is Jewish (religiously and ethnically), and is very conservative politically. Shapiro heads up The Daily Wire, an organization filled with helpful political commentary from a conservative perspective. One of his more recent hires was an already famous blogger, Matt Walsh. Walsh is like Shapiro. Not a … Continue reading Matt Walsh and Predestination

Andy Stanley, the Ten Commandments, and Public Outrage

Those who know me personally, or follow my blog with a degree of religiosity know that I am not a fan of Andy Stanley. I do not support his ministry or recommend his work to Christians. What began as the bad ecclesiology of the seeker-sensitive mega-church movement has evolved into dangerous theological positions, many which have been very controversial of late. Stanley recently found himself in … Continue reading Andy Stanley, the Ten Commandments, and Public Outrage

Francis and the Future of Roman Catholicism

Half a decade ago, when I was at university, I attended a public discussion the theatre department put on about homosexuality. Two separate panels discussed the issue. First, there was a panel of professors from the school. They had no diversity, all shared the same view on homosexuality. Then a religious panel was brought on to the stage to discuss the issue. Represented was a … Continue reading Francis and the Future of Roman Catholicism

A Roman Catholic Contradiction

Introduction There is a tough text in Romans 2 that comes up often in the debate with Roman Catholics on whether a person is justified by faith, or by faith and works. Verse 13 reads, “For it is not the hearers of the Law who are justified, but the doers of the Law who will be justified.” Roman Catholics often use this verse to teach … Continue reading A Roman Catholic Contradiction

Protestant Resolutions: The 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation

What an honor it is to experience the 500th year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On such an important day as this, I felt the only blog that could possibly do justice to the many issues that divided us in the 16th century, and still divide us today, is to write my personal confession. Below is a list of theological resolutions which clearly explain the … Continue reading Protestant Resolutions: The 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation

A Roman Catholic Twitter Debate

Rachel Held-Evans (RHE) is a social justice feminist who blasphemes the name of Christ by self-identifying as a Christian, and masquerading around as a disciple, all the while holding to very few Christian beliefs at all.This makes her frustrating and entertaining to follow on Twitter. She recently posted a Tweet that further demonstrated her ignorance of the Christian worldview. The Tweet was a picture of … Continue reading A Roman Catholic Twitter Debate

Mary Was Not Sinless

Dr. Tony Costa recently debated Dr. Robert Sungenis on the Roman Catholic doctrine known as “Immaculate Conception.” Rome teaches that Mary was not born with sin, and never committed a sin prior to death, an/or prior to her bodily assumption (While all Roman Catholics believe she bodily assumed, some Roman Catholic denominations believe that Mary never died). In the debate, during the Cross-Examination period, Dr. Sungenis … Continue reading Mary Was Not Sinless

Luther and the Apocrypha (20, 21)

This post officially ends the series responding to Twenty One Reasons to Reject Sola Scriptura. I will give the main reason at the end of the blog for why I chose to end with these objections. However, I need to be honest and transparent, partly I did this out of laziness. You heard me…laziness. I will admit these were the two objection I was the … Continue reading Luther and the Apocrypha (20, 21)
