Where does the Church stand on physical mortification?

If Jesus’ passion was part of God’s plan for our redemption, and foretold by the prophets, was Judas part of the plan and does this condemn him to hell? I have also heard of a Gospel of Judas. Is it okay for Catholics to read this to learn more about him and his point of view?

I would like to know more about the Greek word for “cross”. I am married to a Jehovah’s Witness and am often talking about the cross with other Jehovah’s Witnesses. I have been doing research to help me better address their comments/questions.

Listening to the show, it sounds like the non-Catholic Christian denominations don’t quite grasp what Christianity is all about. I feel that we learn all we need about being a Christian from the Bible. What do you think?

Truth And Consequences: The Case For Authority
Authority. For many non-Catholics it’s the single greatest stumbling block when it comes to seeing eye-to-eye with the teachings of the Catholic Church. Once you convince a non-Catholic to accept the teachings of an infallible Magisterium, everything else seems to fall into place. Let Tim Staples new DVD, Truth And Consequences: The Case For Authority help you break down those barriers.
