My daughter-in-law goes to a local church. I think this church was started by Watchman Nee. Are you familiar with Nee? Is this a cult?

What is the difference in the rules set by God in the Old Testament and New Testament versus the way an all knowing God would set the rules today?

I’m an atheist. How do people reconcile the bible with the reality we see around us?

When Jesus got scourged and nailed on the cross, did God feel it?

My protestant friend keeps insisting that salvation is only personal. What is the Catholic teaching on this?

The Seven Deadly Sins of Apologetics
The renaissance of Catholic apologetics has done great good for the Church. Ordinary Catholics are learning how to defend and explain the Faith—and to share it enthusiastically with others—more fluently and confidently than ever. As an experienced apologist and evangelist, Mark Brumley has seen firsthand what this renaissance has accomplished. But he has also witnessed its dangers and pitfalls; some of which are so serious that, left unchecked, they can undermine all our efforts. When we try to prove too much from reason alone, for example, or when we let prideful desire to win arguments overshadow our goal of communicating God’s truth, we run the risk of becoming mediocre—even counter-productive—stewards and messengers of that truth. In The Seven Deadly Sins of Apologetics, Brumley examines the most common faults that defenders of the Faith must guard against, and shows you how to avoid and overcome them. Read this concise and lively book today and become a more effective apostle tomorrow!
