Sharing the Gospel When It Is DIFFICULT! Romans 1:16 – Deep in Scripture Radio

July 17, 2014 | no responses

How do we tell a world, how do we tell our neighbors, the truth about Jesus Christ and the gift of salvation, when the world, even our neighbors, no longer share the common Christian assumptions? How do you tell them about Jesus when they no longer accept the possibility of a Creator God? Or how do you correct Christians who have inaccurate views of the faith, of Jesus, of the Church, which they only hear you through the lenses of their prejudice, or ignorance? And when does our own pride get in the way when we are trying to help others break form the sin of pride? This is what we will start discussing today on Deep in Scripture.

Faith, Works and Abraham Part 2: What must we do to be saved? Galatians 3:1-14 – Deep in Scripture Radio

July 10, 2014 | one response

“What must we do to be saved?” This question draws us into the theological questions of salvation, justification, sanctification, faith and works, and the diversity of opinions on these issues have sadly divided Christians for centuries. Both sides of the arguments claim Saint Paul as their champions, but especially, through Saint Paul, point to Abraham as the model for all men of faith. Many non-Catholic Christians still presume that Catholics believe that they are saved by works, but is this true? And was Abraham a model of faith without works? This is what we discuss today on Deep In Scripture.

Many people asked Jesus, “What must I do to be saved?”, and two thousand years later, many more are still asking this question.

St. Matthias and Witnessing to Christ’s Resurrection, 1 Corinthians 15:12-20 – Deep In Scripture Radio

May 21, 2014 | 2 responses

Today is the feast of St. Matthias. The remaining eleven apostles were gathered in the Upper Room, after the resurrection and ascension of our Lord, and Simon Peter, their leader appointed by Christ, called them to an important task: the replacement in the vacant office of Apostle of Judas. Of the two qualified men nominated, the Holy Spirit led them to chose St. Matthias, but the main reason for this act of choosing him to replace Judas was, as stated in the book of Acts, that “one of these men must become with us a witness to His resurrection.” Thus the primary importance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, which is what we will discuss today on Deep In Scripture.
