Fearless Defender of the Faith with Sword of the Spirit and Helmet of Salvation (Eph 6:1-10 :-)

1. What should a good Catholic know? We have so much history and truth. What are the important things we should know to share with others?

2. We do we know about the Veronica’s Veil in the Stations of the Cross? My friend said that is not in the Bible.

3. I actually had an experience today where I had to defend the faith and I did not know where to begin. Can you give me some practical advice?

4. Can you offer suggestions for how to evangelize Muslims?

5. Can you help us with ways to speak to people about Protestantism since we are coming up on the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation?

6. Our church has a fundraiser every year. Some people criticize us that we are like the Jews selling things in the Temple that made Jesus angry. Is it wrong to have church fundraisers?

7. How do I explain John chapter 6 and the Eucharist to an antagonist who uses verse 63 against us, “The flesh profits nothing.”

8. If God gives a child to born into the family of another faith (example, Hinduism) does that mean that God wants that baby to be a Hindu?

9. Many people say Catholics are literalists and take the Bible too little, like stoning someone who disobeys their parents in the Old Testament. How do I explain these kind of things to the atheist? 

10. My friend moved to Jordan, married a Muslim and converted to Islam. How do I talk to him and get him back to the Catholic faith?

The Catholic Church gave us the Bible. Why are Catholics so willingly, purposefully ignorant of their scriptures. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. Everyone outside of Faith, Belief, and Trust in Christ is eternally damned. All religions that deny that Jesus is God need to be evangelized.

As we look at the multitudes of people in our daily travels and occupations, do stop to realize how many are damned to hell. Why do you remain silent Catholic? Open your mouth and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus. Jesus’ finished work on the cross provides salvation to only those that will believe. Are you ashamed?….
Get to work on saving souls from hell.

Romans 10:9-15
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. [10] For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. [11] For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” [12] For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. [13] For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” [14] How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? [15] And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”

Listened to the program today, nice job! I especially liked the comments on it being easy to evangelize. We need to be proud of our faith!
