SORT BY Relevancy
Protestants believe that the Bible alone is the source of God’s revelation, and it teaches all that is necessary for our salvation, and the Bible is the standard by which all Christian behavior must be measured. This belief is called “sola scriptura” and is one of the “five solas” that came out of the Protestant Reformation. 2 Timothy 3: 16-17 KJV STATES: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. The five solas are as follows: 1) Sola scriptura ("by Scripture alone") 2) Sola fide (by faith alone) 3) Soli Deo gloria ("glory to God alone") 4) Sola Christus or Solo Christo (“Christ alone” or “through Christ alone”) 5) Soli Deo Gloria (“glory to God alone”).
According to the Catholic Faith, the Pope is the “Vicar of Christ” (or substitute), and the Pope has the ability to speak with authority on matters of faith and practice, and he is infallible. Catholics rely on apostolic succession as a way of establishing the Pope’s authority. While Catholicism teaches that only the Catholic Church can properly interpret the Bible. Protestants, however, believe that the Bible teaches: God sent the Holy Spirit to indwell all born-again believers, enabling all believers to understand the message of the Bible. The authority of the pope is said to come from the following scripture: Matthew 18:18 KJV: Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
As we approach Semptember 21, 2014, more and more blogs are coming out of the Catholic Community. In other news sorces you find other professionals debuking the Catholics claims. Dastur Adam Daniels of the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu gives his perspective on all this hype. Its an interesting look into religious banter and belief from the pious side. Lets look into the loony toones of FAITH!
Deepertruth members led by Dr. Gregory Thompson traveled hundreds of miles to join in the Mass, the processions, and the prayer, against and for those participating in the first openly Government sponsored Satanic Black Mass. This was billed as a free speech issue but this event represents something far more sinister.
In order for a true black mass to take place, they must have a consecrated Host where they desecrate the Lord Jesus Christ and everything that is holy. Here, they blasphemed the Lord, stomping on the unconsecrated host as if they were stomping on Christ himself. In actual black masses, this act is far more grotesque. Because of the lawsuit filed against the use of a true consecrated Host, the black mass was performed, despite heavy opposition, with a fake host.
There were an estimated 30-40 participants of this great sacrilege taking place at a small basement theater in the Oklahoma City’s civic center. There was one noted arrest when a lady refused to leave the entrance of the building. Other than that, the heavy police presence restrained protesters who picketed the Satanic service.
Archbishop Paul Coakley led over 3,000 faithful Catholics in Eucharistic adoration against this black mass. The archbishop told participants that the city “has been targeted by dark forces,” and decried the Black Mass, “which to the shame of our city is allowed to proceed.” But he reminded the faithful that “Christ conquered Satan.”
Recently, most American Catholics have been voting for candidates who promote non-Catholic values. Do you know the 5 non-negotiables every Catholic should consider before heading into the voting booth? Tim Staples lays it out for us today.
Talking all things faith, including faith-based current events (and sometimes even that dreaded political overlap, YIKES!)
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

Answering Pope John Paul II’s Call for a “New Evangelization”
Our beloved Pope John Paul II continually exhorted the Church to begin a New Evangelization. He described modern media as an indispensable means of achieving it. In Ecclesia in America he wrote, “Using the media correctly and competently can lead to a genuine enculturation of the Gospel.”1
Pope Benedict XVI, continuing Blessed Pope John Paul II’s efforts to advance this “new springtime” of evangelization, called for the re-proposing of the Gospel “to those regions awaiting the first evangelization and to those regions where the roots of Christianity are deep but who have experienced a serious crisis of faith due to secularization.” 2
Inspired by the our Holy Fathers’ calls to a New Evangelization and re-proposing of the Gospel, Catholics Come Home® reaches out to inactive Catholics using inspiring TV commercials and an interactive Web site. Without pressure or obligation, Catholics Come Home.org offers an opportunity to learn the truth about the Catholic faith in a loving, non-judgmental atmosphere. We offer many resources that aid fallen-away Catholics and non-Catholics in learning more about returning to the Catholic Church. Coming home has never been easier!
Catholics are asked this question all the time by well-meaning family, friends, co-workers--even well-clad men and women who walk the neighborhoods on Saturday mornings trying to get them some SOULS for Jeeee-SUSSSS! Most Catholics aren't even sure what the question means, not because they aren't saved or born again (they are), but because they don't use those words to describe what happens to them when they are. So Catholics often stare blankly at the inquisitor and answer, "No, I'm not born again. I'm Catholic."
Evangelicals and other Baptist traditions don't believe Catholics are either simply because we're Catholic. They fear for our souls because they believe we follow traditions instead of the bible. However, Catholics absolutely are born again and/or saved (the terms are used interchangeably in Protestantism, but for Catholics they mean two different things that happen at two different times). We're born again the way the BIBLE tells us we have to be born again. We are saved the way the BIBLE tells us we're saved. The fact of the matter is that evangelicals may be born again (it depends) and they may be saved (eventually), but if they are, it will be a happy accident and not the result of following the Bible. Indeed, on these matters, it is the CATHOLIC who follows the Bible strictly and the evangelical who follows man-made traditions.
Join Senior apologist and Old Catholic Theologian Kristina Rake, M.A. to learn how it is we can say we are born again the Scriptural way and what all of this means to our lives and our afterlives.
LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective. On today's show, I discuss political analysis on the actions of the nation's leading VENDIDO, Rafael "Ted" Cruz, and how his bullying tactics and most ardent anti-immigration efforts are the polar opposite of Jeb Bush who both favors immigration reform and public school reform. I read articles about both and add my analysis about them and note that Cruz, along with Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky, were all elected with a harsh enforcement only anti-immigration perspective and I submit that agenda is actually anti-Latino in its motivation is also very divisive and polarizing. On the other hand, Jeb Bush, former Florida Governor and originally from Texas is the polar opposite but also Republican. He is for immigration reform and public school reform, both topics important and favored by Latinos. Bush has won larger percentages of Latino voters in the past buth can he, as a Republican, win back all those Latinos and more driven away from the party by bullies like Rafael Ted Cruz, the Vendido? I also notice that the Democrats who also do not favor immigration reform but rather remain quiet on the topic and allow the the deeply divided GOP to self destruct. Their strategy will be to wait and see and rely upon the fact that they have had the Latino vote for decades and assume the GOP will mess up like Romney in the past and drive away more and more Latino voters in the next major election. I propose that while Arizona was ground zero for the immigration debate in the years past that Texas and what it does under Abbott and Patrick will become the new epicenter of the immigration debate in America especially since Cruz and Bush and Paul are all from Texas. Except that Cruz, the Vendido, is actually from Canada!
St. Anselm famously described theology as "faith seeking understanding." All of us are called to Faith by Christ, and we all want to understand what we believe and why as Catholics. These days there is much confusion regarding the Catholic Faith and so it becomes even more important for each of us to deepen our Faith and study theology. Join us as host David Rodriguez (M.Th.) takes us through traditional sources of our Basic Catholic Faith: the Sacred Liturgy, the Sacred Scriptures, the Fathers, Doctors and Saints of the Church, the encyclicals of the Popes, and the Roman Catechism edited by St. Charles Borromeo and published under Pope St. Pius V. This series focuses on the Creed, The Sacraments, The Ten Commandments, and the Life of Prayer. Listeners may also call in with their questions as each session includes time for Q&A. This program is sponsored by the St. Vincent Ferrer Foundation of Texas, dedicated to recovering and restoring of our traditional Catholic Faith.
If you have questions or comments for our host, Mr. David Rodriguez, please feel free to contact him at email@example.com. If you are interested in other classes offered by him on CD Audio or mp3 format please also contact him directly for a listing of available titles.

LatinoTalk Texas is America's only daily independent political analysis from the Latino perspective. On today's show I discussed a number of timely issues important Latinos and Latinos in Texas. First, I read an article from Latina.com that pointed out Latino celebrities that are not afraid to comment on political issues especially those important to other Latinos like Immigration Reform which this show favors greatly. Next, I discuss the insulting prospect that a conservative "news" outlet joked the murderess of Selena Quintanilla Perez would be released from prison. This is not true but remains personally insulting. I read an article from "Latinos Ready to Vote" outlining the religiosity of Mexicanos and Mexican Americans in America. No surprise the vast majority, like this show, are Catholic. Later, I mention that Texas Values is working on a number of morality issues in Texas and among them is the effort to defend Christmas and other religious expression which this show also supports. Another issue in the sights of Texas Values is the City of Plano, Texas that has passed a controversial "equal rights" ordinance. Opponents say it violates the First Amendment Freedom of Religion. I enter into a reminding discussion of my perception of the two major political forces in America. They are the Culture of Life and the Culture of Anti-Life or the Culture of Death. Because this show and the vast majority of Latinos are Catholic, we are among the Culture of Life and work to expose the Culture of Death and its means of undermining the Culture of Life. Lastly, I read two articles about Immigration Reform. One article from CNN and by an economist reports on the financial benefits of Immigration Reform which confirms what we have said for years. Lastly, another article articulates the political pitfalls the Republicans have now they have failed to act on Immigration Reform.

LatinoTalk Texas is news, issues and interviews important to Latinos in America. On today's show, December 12th, I discuss the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe which is very important to Latinos in America, especially Mexicanos and ethnic Mexicans like myself. I read an article about riders in Illinois who rode to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Des Plaines and delivered a rose while passing on horseback. I went on to read more news from the Catholic News Service concerning the Synod of the Family and Conscious Rights of Catholics under assault in liberal America both by the Obama administration and the liberal City of Washington DC which enacted similar ordinances as Plano, and Houston, Texas which challenge religious freedom and expression. Later in the show, a caller, Juan Martinez, a former police officer in the Dallas Ft. Worth area called to ask about 287g, a federal program that enables local law enforcement to question person incarcerated to determine if they should be evaluated by immigration enforcement. Martinez wanted to know if that program is still in effect. I reported that as I know it is but in reference to SB 1070 which was largely found to be unconstitutional but also still authorized in vague terms state and local law enforcement to be "assist" immigration and customs authorities. Previously, this was not true as the Supremacy Clause prevented state and local LEO from investigating such matters without 287g authorization. However, since the SB1070 case, states have new authorization and in places like Arizona, they uses it indiscriminately and over zealously. I am very worried about the laws Dan Patrick will pass here in Texas and use it to violate the rights of Latinos here in Texas simply because we may look "foreign." Clearly a violation of the 4th Amendment.
