Catholic asks about Tradition | Apologetics Live 0005 | CARM | Striving for Eternity

(Note: Matt and Andrew spoke a bit about an earlier caller to Matt’s weekday broadcast in regard to the question: Is Baptism Necessary for Salvation?……………….which lead into a mention of the recent articles published by Matt on annihilationism.)

​See a great deal of information to explore on this topic at: “Annihilationism” https://carm.org/annihilationism

(Note: There was some crosstalk of “How” some contemporary apologists suffer from misunderstandings between one another’s definitions and perhaps even more unfortunate, misrepresentations are often presented as a result.

This frequently results in a distraction from promoting the Gospel.  Those opposed to Reformed Theology and specifically Calvinism were briefly discussed.)

​As an example of an accurate portrayal of Calvinism I offered the link to: For anyone interested, to explore: http://calvinistcorner.com/

I further offered: Disputable issues should not be a source of division among Christians, see: “Romans 14:1-12, Don’t pass judgment” https://carm.org/sermon-romans-141-12…

(Note: Ariel, a practicing Roman Catholic participant in the hangout began a series of interesting questions which covered some wide ranging topics and a variety of issues.)

​Sola Scriptura defined: https://carm.org/dictionary-sola-scri…

“How did the early church practice Sola Scriptura before the Bible existed? ” https://carm.org/how-did-early-church…

​According to Roman Catholicism, Sacred Tradition and the Bible together provide the foundation of spiritual truth….See more on this topic at: “Is the Bible alone sufficient for spiritual truth?”

( Note: Some quotations were offered to document official Roman Catholic teachings of a variety of issues as the conversation proceeded.)

​The penitent person must willingly submit to its requirements of having a contrite heart, perform verbal confession, and be completely humble (CCC, 1450).

​It is part of the process that restores the person to God’s grace (CCC, 1468, 1496). It includes works of reparation (CCC, 1491).
