Questions Covered:

02:24 – I am not Catholic because the gospels are entirely different from each other.

#9656 Why Aren’t You Catholic? – Trent Horn

What is keeping you from the Catholic Church?
Questions Covered:

05:26 – I am not Catholic because Mary is equal to Christ. Also, you do not have to go to a priest for forgiveness. 
16:48 – I am not Catholic because the God of the Pentateuch is not the creator of the universe. 
29:36 – I am leaving the Church because it doesn’t allow the laity to have a voice or role in important Church decisions or prayers. 
35:30 – I am not Catholic because I don’t believe in the Bible. It’s a bunch of fairy tales. If Jesus was, why wouldn’t he reveal himself today? I am atheist, and a former Catholic.  
49:56 – I am not Catholic because of the Marian dogmas.

36:02 – My Pentecostal friends claim that 1 Cor. 14:2 proves that their speaking in tongues is valid and holy. Is this true? 
45:30 – I was very angry at God and told him I was leaving the Church. I don’t want to be a part of the Church, but I do talk to God sometimes. Can you help me to sort this out? 
49:06 – How does free will work in relation to God’s providence and omniscience?
