SORT BY Relevancy
This episode is dedicated to all the victims of Roman Catholic abuse, whose pain was too much for them and they committed suicide.
I wrote a letter to the editor in response to Pope Francis asking priest abuse victims to forgive him and the church for our abuses. This is a part of that response:
"How can Paul Anthony Carson, whom upon seeing the priest whom raped him walking down the street and then going home and hanging himself, being found by his parents, forgive him?
How can Emma Foster, whom was raped by Father Kevin O'Donnell, while at a primary school whom committed suicide because of it, forgive him?
How can Daniel Neill, whom committed suicide because of his rapist priest, Joseph Gallagher, forgive him?
How can the 30 boys raped at the St Alipius primary school, whom committed suicide forgive him for their rapes?
There are about a thousand or more victims of these evil crimes who committed suicide. Tonight, we honor their memory and call to task the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, all of the Cardinals, Bishops and Archbishops, priests, nuns and parishioners, who have ignored this evil and to correct it immediately.
These brothers and sisters of ours...deserve no less.
A Lady Priest? A Lady Bishop?!!
Of course! Why not?
Join Kristina Rake, M.A. (theology and scripture) for this detailed and riveting answer to the Roman Catholic Church's objections against female ordination to Holy Orders. Kristina will explore the 4 reasons why the Roman Church claims it can never ordain women, while examining the historical, theological, biblical, spiritual, and psychological reasons why that position is untenable and why a female priesthood is not just possible, it's valid and necessary.
The Catholic faith is beautiful in so many ways. One of the most beautiful is that we are called together as community to pray, worship and grow in faith.

They'll also give you tips on how to find and become active in that community so you can grow in your faith and become the disciple of Christ God created you to be. It's all on the Catholic Cast Sunday at 7pmET, 6pmCT only on BlogTalkRadio.

Join us Sunday at 7pmET, 6pmCT on the Catholic Cast only on BlogTalkRadio.

19 year-old funk-pop artist Philip "Pip" Arnold thrilled fans of NBC's "The Voice" back in 2012. His unique style and look earned him a spot on Adam Levine's team and a berth in the quarterfinals. Since then, Pip has begun to persue his singing career in Los Angeles and started his own charity "Youth in Mission" which sponsors youth groups in their works around the globe. On the next Catholic Cast, Pip joins Brent, John and Amber to talk about why he began this new ministry, what it's like to be a Christian following his dream of being in the music business and what it was like to be on "The Voice". The gang will also check in with the Atlanta Boys Choir's Reverend Neil Cardwell about their trip to Poland this summer to sing at different events celebrating Pope John Paul II's canonization and what the choir has in store for their new fall season. That and so much more on the Catholic Cast Sunday at 7pmET, 4pmPT only on BlogTalkRadio.com
I remember distinctly, as I heard her praying to God, I thought if I looked up I would see Him sitting next to her on her worn couch. This was not just her God, but also her best friend. Her dearest companion who had seen her through a lifetime of suffering and prejudice. As her intimate conversation continued, I grew afraid, because I knew when she finished, I was expected to share with her a message about Jesus, but I knew that she really "knew" him, while I may only know about him. I wanted that kind of intimacy she shared with her Creator, but for me God was distant and demanding.
This simple experience didn't square with what I had been taught. Here was a non-Mormon who knew God in a way I could only imagine. It opened the door for me to begin a conscious and careful re-examination of my faith. In other equally important moments, Christians shared with me how Jesus Christ has changed their lives, healed their marriages, and delivered them from drug addictions. I could have argued how to interpret a particular New Testament verse for hours, but I could never argue with them about how the Lord had touched and transformed their lives. Thirdly, Christians took the time to point out verses in the Bible that seemed to clearly contradict Mormon teaching.
For example, Mormons believe in the existence of many gods in the universe, the god of this world being one among many. But the Word of God clearly proclaims there are no gods but the God revealed in Divine Revelation, He is the first and the last (Isa 44:6, 24; 45:5, 18). I heard the scriptural maneuverings that fellow Mormons used to deny the meaning of these verses, but for me they were clearly confirming monotheism.
