  • Are you celebrating Freethought month?

    10/05/2010 6:34:36 AM PDT · by MarianoApologeticus · 9 replies
    Examiner ^ | Oct 5, 2010 AD | Mariano
    ...Much of what passes for "Freethought" and "Freethinking" today is, in reality, atheism wearing a very thin disguise....In that case, it is clear that what is meant by Freethought is adhering to absolute materialism. If a Judeo-Christian cannot be a freethinker then freethought is not freethought but demands adherences to certain restrictive parameters. Yet, since the Judeo-Christian can think beyond, for example, materialistic parameters we can be true freethinkers. Atheists who have commandeered the term Freethought complain that Christians cannot be Freethinkers because they adhere to the Christian worldview. Yet, they commit the same alleged fallacy by adhering to atheism...
  • Catholic Word of the Day: DONATISM. 09-23-10

    CatholicReference.net ^ | 09-23-10 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary
    Featured Term (selected at random): DONATISM Originally a schism and then a heresy of the fourth and fifth centuries, claiming that the validity of the sacraments depends on the moral character of the minister; also that sinners cannot be members of the Church, nor can they be tolerated by the true Church if their sins are publicly known. The Donatists came into existence in Africa during the disorders following the persecution under Diocletian (245-313). A man named Caecilian was consecrated Bishop of Carthage in A.D. 311, but a group of rigorists claimed that he was not a valid bishop because...

    Scots Line Streets to Welcome Benedict XVI Pontiff Completes 1st Day of UK Trip By Edward Pentin EDINBURGH, Scotland, SEPT. 16, 2010 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI landed at Edinburgh airport shortly before half past ten this morning amid a blustery and chill wind. But the sun was also shining brightly and the Holy Father looked rested, at peace and happy as he came off the papal plane. He was greeted by the Duke of Edinburgh, an unprecedented gesture signifying how much the Crown values this, the first state by a Pope. Also there to meet him were the primates of Scotland,...

    Any time American Vision posts an article dealing with Bible prophecy, we get emails from Bible prophecy “experts” chastising us for our “ignorance.” One fellow wrote that since Revelation talks about earthquakes and we see earthquakes today that earthquakes must be a modern-day sign that the end is near. Here’s what he wrote: “I don’t know who this guy [Gary DeMar] is and I don’t want to know but I am going to say this he does not know the bible cause it says in the Book of Revelation That Earth Quakes is one of the many signs of the...

"You're idolators! You worship statues! And because you do, your Church dropped the commandment against graven images!" The truth, of course, is that the Catholic Church did not and could not change the Ten Commandments. Latin Catholics and Protestants simply list them differently.

    ...Agreed, there are many lies being spread about Islam yet, how many times did you have to hear someone in the media say “Not all Muslims are terrorists” before you asked yourself who had ever, at any time or anywhere, in any context made that claim? The fact of history is that Islam has a influenced the oppressing women and killing non-Muslims. In a society governed by sharia law the very best that a non-Muslim can hope for is to live as a second class citizen who has to pay a special tax for not being a Muslim. As for...

    The following are meant to be representative of the type and scope of questions in apologetics which candidates in the Presbytery of Southern California may expect to be asked. They are only a "sample" (and by only one member of the Credentials Committee). The exam will certainly not include all of these questions, but neither will it be restricted to them. Candidates are not expected to have been philosophy majors to answer these questions adequately, but we do look for (1) a reliable and general grasp of the history of Western thought (including basic philosophical vocabulary, issues, and figures), (2)...

    Holy Scripture, despite all appearances, will not always be easy to interpret. We can be lulled into thinking our “common sense” and “by the letter” interpretation of a text is what God intends us to get out of it. However, if this is the case, there would be little to no debates about its meaning; there would be little confusion as to its purpose and how it applies to us today. St. Peter would not have needed to tell us that no prophecy of Scripture is to be interpreted privately, because all interpretations of Scripture would end up the...

Smith [1998], 276).The question is, to whom is our faithfulness to be known? First, we must be satisfied in our own hearts that we have paid an honest...
