#10079 Open Forum - Karlo Broussard

Catholic Answers Live

Questions Covered:01:36 – How do we share our faith without arguing about catholic teachings of the bible or traditions and remain charitable? Would these people argue this much with a priest? Why do we need to take a daily defense? 10:15 My sister’s daughter’s spouse is Muslim, so her two Grandsons were baptized in the Islamic faith. Is it a sin, or even a valid baptism if we were to secretly arrange a Catholic baptism for the two boys (ages 4 and 1)? Will the boys go to hell or purgatory with this baptism in Muslim faith on their soul? 17:15 – In Matthew 5:44 Christ tells us to love our enemies. Why did God kill the Sodom and Gomorrah and contradict himself? 23:21 – I have a friend who has converted to Protestantism after being Catholic. Can he still receive salvation in the afterlife? How can I help him revert and see the truth? 4. Bruce…Dallas, TX…YouTube…33:34 – In Luke 24:39, Jesus says he is not a Ghost. If this is the case Did Jesus’ resurrected body have blood? 37:32 – 1st John 5:16 confuses me because it seems John is asking us not to pray for those who have committed mortal/deadly sin. Can Karlo offer clarification on why John would write this when God wants us to pray for all sinners? 16:22 – As a protestant, I just recently came to finally accept Catholicism as a true religion. I’m thinking about converting but feel overwhelmed with how much information there is to learn about the catholic faith and don’t know where to begin. Where do I start, and why is it so overwhelmingly vast compared to other Christian religions? …

Questions Covered:07:35 – Is it wrong to have, and to be a eucharistic minister? Also receiving on the hand not okay? 13:40 – If you say the divine mercy chaplet at the bedside of someone dying but not at the hour of their death does it still help? 16:30 – How can I explain to my friend who was raised Catholic, but who has fallen away from the faith, why sinful things are wrong and why God sends us to hell for those things? For example, living with non-Catholic out of wedlock, or supporting homosexuality? 23:54 – What’s Karlo’s advice on having faith in Catholicism and its explanations, when the answers and defense of the questions I’ve asked, still haven’t satisfied my understanding with logical reasoning? 33:35 – If the Catholic church was never divided would we still have the Bible today, and would the bible be the same? 36:00 – What are the requirements for baptismal sponsors/godparents? 39:52 – I teach sixth grade religion, and in class we’ve been discussing where did souls go before Holy Saturday (before the gates of heaven were open). Many students have heard different opinions from their parents, how can I explain the truth to them? 46:16 – In Matthew 12:46-50, was Jesus implying that his mother and brethren were not in the will of God? 50:10 – My cousin ate meat on good Friday (which is a mortal sin, right?) and at our aunt’s funeral the following day he received communion. Was it my obligation to let the priest know? …

Ep. #139 - Exploring the Third Way w/ Karlo Broussard

Classical Theism Podcast

What are some different readings of the Third Way? How can the Third Way still be defended? How can we respond to common objections against the Third Way? What did various Thomists think of the argument? Where does the De Ente reasoning come in? Karlo Broussard joins us to discuss these questions and more. The Classical Theism Podcast aims to defend Catholic Christian ideas in conversation. With the help of various guests, I defend three pillars of the Catholic Christian worldview: (1) the God of classical theism exists, (2) Jesus is our Messiah and Lord, and (3) He founded the Catholic Church. We place a strong emphasis on the first pillar, defending classical theism, drawing upon the work of Thomistic philosopher Dr. Edward Feser and many others.
