Callers choose the topics during Open Forum, peppering our guests with questions on every aspect of Catholic life and faith, the moral life, and even philosophical topics that touch on general religious belief.
00:57 – What is our individual responsibility regarding evangelization?
05:08 – I am in dialogue with a dear Calvinist friend of mine. He says he can see my points when it comes to Scripture interpretation, but that his theology doesn’t allow him to agree. How can I break through this barrier?
14:44 – Why does God put a premium on understanding the past and not the future?
23:09 – How does God determine who goes to heaven and why? Do I really need to be doing all the good things I do, or would he just forgive me and let me into heaven without those actions?
28:56 – How would someone know if they have the Holy Spirit?
33:58 – In John 19:25, it says that Mary the mother of Jesus has a sister called Mary. Was that common to name siblings the same name?
39:40 – God commanded his people not to make idols, but my friend says that Catholics do this. How do I refute this?
45:35 – What is the historicity of the gospels? Some historians claim that they are not historically accurate.
