Radio & TV Shows, Steve’s

Here is a link to listen on-line to Steve’s Open Line for Non-Catholics: Click here

Here are the questions Steve answered:

1) Some on Catholic radio said there must be a God because people who do not believe in God can’t prove the he doesn’t exist. How come Catholic (mostly Catholics) use the argument that because you can’t prove he doesn’t exist you assume he does? (This was a fun call and got a bit feisty at times)

 2) Why do Catholics believe Mary is the Queen of Heaven and that Jesus is the King of Justice and Mary has to protect them from him. 

 3) Why did they take the word cannabis out of the Old Testament? (Very strange question)

 4) I was raised Catholic but I am not Catholic any more. Why do Catholic priests and bishops remain single when the Bible says that Catholic bishops must be the a husband above all. Can you explain that since something is wrong.

 5) How can you explain the existence of God to someone who does not believe?

 6) Why do Catholic say Jesus descended to hell in their creed? 

 7) How can you ask someone to wait until marriage for sex when it says on WebMD that it you don’t use it, you will lose it?

 8) In the Bible it says that if anyone added to or deleted from Scripture that then are damned for eternity; will movie makers be guilty of making movies that alter and change the Bible?

Today I was on Relevant Radio with John Harper discussing my Six Rules for dealing with family and friends who disagree with us, oppose us, want to argue and are against the Catholic Church and our morals.

For my Catholic Answers show two months ago on this, click here.

Cover story on Catholic Answers Magazine

Steve Ray’s Six Rules:

1) Never argue with them, it will only push them further away.

2) Love them more than ever before, especially between spouses

3) Pray seriously and constantly and make sacrifices

4) Show the Joy of the Lord in your life so they see the result of the fullness of the Faith

5) Study apologetics and do biblical homework so you are ready when they finally ask questions

6) Ask God to bring someone else into their lives to influence them since they won’t listen to you

Topic: St. Paul Teaches Us to Run the Race on Catholic Answers Live 

Questions I answered on Catholic Answers Live tonight. You can access the link to listen on-line or to download as a podcast – as soon as the links are available. Listen here.

1. St. Paul speaks rather strongly regarding women’s participation in the liturgy. How do we read his comments about women participating in the Mass, especially regarding lectors and altar servers?

 2. I am a catechist for our RCIA program. We have many Protestant converts coming into the Church. One question I often get is this: “Did St. Paul consider himself to be “saved”?

 3. When Paul wrote to the Romans, (e.g., Romans 3:28) he said we are saved by faith and not by works. Our Protestant brethren use this verse to counter Catholic teaching. How do we understand what Paul taught in Romans and Galatians?

 4. According to Fr. Barron, after St. Paul’s conversion he disappeared for three years and went to Arabia. Do you think this really happened and if so, where is that in the Bible? Why did he go there?

 5. Do you think Paul’s letters were written for a different time or are they still applicable to us in the modern world?

6. My mother just passed away on Sunday and I am setting up her Memorial Mass. Is there a particular scripture passage from St. Paul that I can have read at Mass that focuses on running the good race and the resurrection? I want to help reach my non-believing family members.

 7. When St. Paul was struck down on the road to Damascus Jesus said, “Why are you persecuting Me?’ Does that mean that people that persecute Catholics and the Church today are actually doing it against Jesus?

Are You Born Again?

February 16, 2014

 It seems that God is kind of predictable in a way :-) since He always starts new things in the same way – with “water and the Spirit“. Consider the following: 1) The first creation came from the the earth which was covered with WATER and the SPIRIT hovered over the waters and from the water emerged [...]
