THE BEAR WOZNICK ADVENTURE

Today I’m pumped to be joined by Matt Swaim!Matt drags me out of bed at 12:30 every morning to appear on his show for just five minutes. Now I get him for a full 45 minutes.Matt is a convert to Catholicism. He’s a prominent figure on Catholic radio, co-host of the Son Rise Morning Show and contributor to the Coming Home Network. He’s also a diehard Cincinnati Reds fan, but we can forgive him for that. (Go Dodgers!)Together we’re going to talk about:Why, aside from tandem surfing, baseball is the most Catholic sportHow the Church gives you all the tools to become a saint and how each saint applies those tools differently when they “step up to the plate”Why practice doesn’t make perfect and what you need to do to create your perfect practiceHow studying the plays of the “veterans” helps you improve your game on the field and in CatholicismWhy fiction authors sometimes make better evangelists than professional theologians.

077: What's Wrong with Sola Fide (w/ Matt Swaim and Keith Nester)

The Cordial Catholic

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, we've reassembled our popular panel of converts from our discussion on Sola Scriptura (in Episode 66) to talk about the other famous Protestant "sola," Sola Fide – the idea that Christians are saved "by faith alone." Joined by Matt Swaim and Keith Nester, we discuss what Sola Fide means, how it's understood differently in different denominations, how we wrestled with it, and ultimately, how it isn't all that different from a Catholic understanding of salvation anyway. It's a fantastic discussion, a real deep dive, into our experiences trying to understand the Christian faith through a "faith alone" lens, and why we all eventually became Catholic.For more from Keith Nester visit his website and check out his fantastic new book, A Convert's Guide to Roman Catholicism: Your First Year in the Church.

066: Why We Believe that Sola Scriptura is Broken (w/ Matt Swaim and Keith Nester)

The Cordial Catholic

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by two returning guests, Matt Swaim and Keith Nester. Matt and Keith are both Catholic converts and we get together to discuss the problems we encountered with Sola Scriptura – the idea that the Bible is the sole rule of faith for Christians.We talk about the problem of everyone interpreting things differently, of major issues like salvation and authority and the canon of the Bible, and how finding the Catholic Church was the solution for all the problems of disunity that existed in Protestant Christianity. This is an absolute doozy of a discussion and I really, really think you'll enjoy it.

Philippians 2:3, Isaiah 40:31, and Persevering in Humility – Marcus Grodi and Matt Swaim

Deep in Scripture Radio

On the latest “Memorable Verses” edition of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and Matt Swaim look at the importance of humility in the spiritual life, not only for keeping harmony with our neighbors, but also for staying in relationship with Christ. Jesus gives us the example of humility, as St. Paul tells us in his letter to the Philippians; and as Isaiah tells us, sometimes that humility means waiting upon the Lord rather than advancing our own agendas.
