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.
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.”
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!
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 the nature of Halloween or "All Hallows Eve" or "All Souls Day" which is a Catholic Holiday. Later, I discuss the importance of voting and voting independently. Do not vote a party line but vote for each candidate on their own merits and if you find no candidate you can trust, then vote for yourself as a write In candidate. The Latino vote is in the news because it is important and will soon control many elections. But for now, the Democrats don't care or respect you and the Republicans, controlled by the nativists at the Tea parties, simply hate and fear you. Don't trust either of them! Please see the terrific and humorous video by Al Madrigal seen on the Jon Stewart show. Read about the backlash against Obama, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats by Latino activists regarding inaction on Immigration Reform. I later read an essay by Ruben Navarette regarding Latino voting and he confirms we should vote independently! I also read a piece by Newt Gingrich regarding the wildly radical movements by Houston Mayor Annise Parker who is quietly pushing the Homosexual agenda in Houston and facing a backlash, responded with a lawsuit against pastors. Lastly, Pope Francis made remarks recently that were misinterpreted or flatly misrepresented by media types about science and the nature of creation which I discussed on my shows recently. I finish by commenting that Catholics are not "literalists" who believe, for example, the universe is only 6 thousand years old. Have a good weekend.
LatinoTalk Texas is America's ONLY daily independent political analysis for the Latino Perspective! On today's show, I read some articles concerning the potential for Jeb Bush, a favorite among many Latinos, to run for the Republican Presidential nomination. However, I continue to remind how the very qualities that make me and other Latinos like Jeb Bush are also the same things that make Tea party types hate him. I discuss the dynamics of the Tea party grip on the Republican Party's metaphorical throat and how that will control the next set of presidential elections. Following on that I discuss the New Mexico Governor race involving Susana Martinez who is the nation's first elected Latina Governor. A loft accomplishment, no doubt but she has done some anti-Latino things in her state to satisfy the Tea party's anti-Latino agenda. She could be nominated for Vice President if either Jeb Bush or even a Tea Party type like Rand Paul wins the nomination for President. I'm not sure if the latter would actually be good for Latinos. Later, I discuss some case studies of the actual sorrow and suffering imposed by Obama's harsh deportation policies which he could have changed years ago but he lied, lied and lied about it all much to the detriment of Latinos in America. Finally, I discuss a commentary by Pope Francis about the attack on the sacrament and institution of marriage. I couch that discussion in the larger context of the battle between the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death which benefits from destruction of marriage, the very foundation of the Culture of Life.

Washington In The Lap of Rome, 1888
"Romanism is the dominate part in the Capitol of the United States."
Text on back of Book
In 1888, a man named Justin D. Fulton gave a warning to the people of America through his book, Washington in the Lap of Rome. In it, he details how the Roman Catholic Church flooded the new capital city just after the American Revolution, with the intention of seizing control of the United States
Prior to the Revolution, Catholics in America were forbidden to vote and could not hold political office because of the centuries-old conflict between Rome and England; an enmity so bitter that even the Catholic mass was outlawed in the early English colonies. But once America declared her independence and the doctrine of religious freedom was written into the Constitution, the agents of the Pope moved quickly, building a Jesuit University, taking over hospitals, and moving faithful Romanists into positions of power in the Capitol of the United States." In the 19th century, the author was convinced that if Americans did not awaken to the problem, it would be a matter of time before Jesuit priests would rule our country, and the Inquisition would come to American soil. Was there any truth to Fulton's warning?
