Ecumenical  or  Non-denominational Bible Studies–
Catholics R Welcome (if they keep quiet–shussshhh!)

BibleStudyGroup.jpgHow many Catholics have innocently accepted a friendly invitation to a "non-denominational or ecumenical Bible study."

How many Catholics have then been enticed and misled in these studies — which are often used to "evangelize" Catholics?

Many people ask me about Protestant Bible studies, so I decided to write an article explaining the problems and why I discourage Catholics from attending.

Is the Code of Canon Law Inspired?

by Steve Ray on September 23, 2006

CanonLaw.jpgA Protestant friend of mine recently discovered the Law of the Catholic Church — the Code of Canon Law. He was thoroughly impressed that the Catholic Church had developed such a careful code of law by which the faithful must conduct their lives and affairs.

He admitted that the Protestant way was a "free-for-all" with each individual or group doing what is "right in their own eyes" (Judges 19:1). This is a quote from Judges when the Israelites went in every direction of faith and morals which brought great calamities upon Israel. To my friend the Code was a marvelous thing–something he envied.

But the question arose: Is the Code of Canon Law inspired by God? My good friend and Canon Lawyer Edward Peters addresses that question in an article he wrote "Is the Code of Canon Law Inspired?" Those who are interested in such things can read his article here.

A Nagging Wife

by Steve Ray on September 23, 2006

A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem . While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband, "You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here, in the Holy Land , for $150." The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.

The undertaker asked, "Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your wife home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you would spend only $150?"
The man replied, "Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can't take that chance."
