Skip to comments.Catholic Sacraments - Explained without Protestant Bias
Posted on 12/16/2013 6:05:21 AM PST by vladimir998
Karlo Broussard does a very good job of explaining the sacraments without the distortions or misrepresentations of Protestants who never even walked the earth until more than 14 centuries after Christ established the sacraments.
A cradle Catholic by birth, Broussards faith, like everyone, needed to be further nurtured through a personal relationship with Christ and by studying the Catholic Faith. Broussards amazing success in the Cajun country music scene proved to be a major distraction and even a source of serious temptation. Playing in honky-tonk bars, night clubs, and recording two successful music albums eventually led Broussard to a crossroads as he began to realize that his core Christian beliefs were not in accord with his musician lifestyle. The Holy Spirit eventually led him to acknowledge Gods truth and embrace his calling as a Catholic apologist.
He is the founder and president of the Divine Child Institute for Catechetical Renewal, Inc, which is an institute for adult catechesis based in Wenatchee, WA. He is a skilled apologist and adult catechist with experience in radio and television broadcasting, conference speaking, biblical seminars, audio publications and magazine articles. Karlo is a speaker on Catholic Answers speakers bureau and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theology from Catholic Distance University as well as a Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology with a concentration in catechesis and evangelization from the Augustine Institute in Denver, Colorado.
Broussard is one of the most dynamic and enthusiastic Catholic speakers on the circuit today. To compliment his zealous and energetic style, Broussards teachings are incredibly clear and concise, leaving audiences with an unbelievably deeper understanding of the mysteries of faith. Broussards talks are able to move one from the shaky ground of doubt and unbelief to the firm foundation of the immoveable Catholic truth.

Is there any other kind?
“without Protestant Bias”
As opposed to anti-scripture bias.
It is one thing to render an opinion on things not clearly addressed by the Bible (and doing so based on consensus and solid historical records are certainly rational), but it is quite another to contradict the plain teachings of the Bible and deny that the Bible can be understood by its direct reading and thus render it moot based on a diabolically vehement desire to subordinate all followers of Christ to nonsensical superstitions and abominable rebellions to the commands of God.
My direct reading of the Bibles shows that it supports Catholic teachings. The truth is that Protestants are just as bound to their own traditions and mediated interpretations of the Bible as any Catholic.
bump to view later.
Wasn't born there but got there as quick as he could? Texas style.
How long has Karlo Broussard walked the earth?
Where does the Bible instruct making images of deceased saints, bowing to them, making offerings to these images, or praying toward them?
Not what the thread is about. Get a life.
So who’s right?
Please show its support and teaching of the assumption of Mary.
Off topic bear.
Dogma and Sacrament are different words. This thread concerns the Biblical support for the seven Sacraments of the Catholic Church. Do try and stay on topic, OK dearie?
The topic was the post I responded to.
It’s not about Mary. It’s about the sacraments. Can you read?
Do not Catholic teachings include dogma? The poster I was responding to made this claim. My direct reading of the Bibles shows that it supports Catholic teachings. Catholic teachings include ALL of Catholic teachings. Does not the Catholic Church teach about the assumption of Mary? I can read quite well and asked a question in direct response to a statement made. No assumption involved.
The Bible is not easy to understand and that’s why we have the Cathecism of the Catholic Church.
No one can figure out the teachings in the Bible by themselves.
Even good ole boy Jimmy Swaggart has his own study Bible.
Not long, but the faith he holds is almost 2,000 years old.
When your salvation is based on a points system, how can you ever know when you have enough? You can never be assured of your salvation, and God speaks (through the Bible) multiple times that you CAN be assured.
