+  Meeting the Protestant Challenge (2 segments)

  • Description: Every Catholic has heard the challenge: "How can you believe that? Don't you know the Bible says..." It's a challenge we have to meet. If we can't reconcile apparent contradictions between Scripture and Catholic teaching, how can our own faith survive? And if we can't help our Protestant brothers and sisters overcome their preconceptions about "unbiblical" Catholic doctrines and practices, how will they ever come to embrace the fullness of the Faith? We talk with Karlo Broussard.

    • Meeting the Protestant Challenge: How to Answer 50 Biblical Objections to Catholic Beliefs

      Every Catholic has heard the challenge: "How can you believe that? Don't you know the Bible says..." It's a challenge we have to meet. If we can't reconcile apparent contradictions between Scripture and Catholic teaching, how can our own faith survive? And if we can't help our Protestant brothers and sisters overcome their preconceptions about "unbiblical" Catholic doctrines and practices, how will they ever come to embrace the fullness of the Faith? In Meeting the Protestant Challenge, Karlo Broussard gives you the knowledge and tools you need to answer fifty of the most common Bible-based objections to Catholicism. How can the Mass be a sacrifice when the Bible says it's just a memorial? Why do Catholics stress good works when the Bible says we're saved by faith? Scripture says that all have sinned-so what Catholics believe about Mary being "immaculate" is plainly false. Jesus said to call no man father, yet that's what Catholics call their priests! How much clearer could it be? For these challenges and many more, Karlo provides a step-by-step plan for understanding the roots of the objection, breaking down the context and full meaning of the Scripture passages, anticipating followup arguments, and offering your own friendly counter-challenge to help Protestants begin to see how the Bible and Catholic teaching actually coexist in harmony. Don't get caught off guard! When the next biblical challenge comes, be ready to meet it with confidence. (learn more)
