#9783 Open Forum - Mark Brumley
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.
05:17 – Can you explain Hebrews 10:26 regarding purgatory?
17:28 – If conditional security of salvation is true, how do we know what secures our salvation?
22:28 – How does a saint become a doctor of the Church?
32:33 – Is it a bad thing for me to love my mom more than God?
35:28 – To what degree are we as lay Catholics able to criticize clergy? I recently told a friend that I didn’t think we were supposed to criticize, especially on a public platform.
48:30 – The Council of Chalcedon approved the letter of Ibas, but a later council condemned it as heretical. How do you explain this seeming contradiction of actions by Church councils?
