Questions Covered:

  • 04:03 - How can I reply to the charge that the passage in John 10, “My sheep hear my voice…no one shall snatch them from my hand,” proves “Once saved, always saved?” 
  • 07:15 - When Jesus responds to the question “who is my neighbor” with the parable of the Good Samaritan, he seems to be saying that only one person is our neighbor; yet the Catechism says the whole world is our neighbor. How do I reconcile these? 
  • 15:21 - The Council of Trent seems to change a teaching from the Council of Constance. How and why could it do that? 
  • 20:17 - If a Pope were to commit formal heresy, would he cease to be Pope? 
  • 24:39 - What are your thoughts on the Divine Mercy Chaplet? Do any of the private revelations seem a bit far-fetched? 
  • 33:32 - Can I attend my Bible study if I’m not in a state of grace? 
  • 35:40 I saw a YouTube video that said “Pope Francis declares the devil to be God.” 
  • 44:55 - What is the Church’s stance on Islam? 
  • 48:23 - Numbers 5 seems to sanction an abortive procedure for Israel. So why can’t we have our own separate sanctions on abortion in America?
