How many gospels are there in the Roman Catholic Bible? The quantity of gospels are the same in both the Catholic and Protestant Bibles. There are only four, in the same order, at the beginning of the New Testament. Are there only gospels in the New Testament? No, the New Testament contains other books, including: "Acts of the Apostles" (also ...

I don't know for sure who the Pope meant, since he did not give very many clues, but I think he was referring to Antonio Rosmini-Serbati (1797-1855). His writings criticising the church were placed on the Index during his lifetime, but he was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007. The biography fits the way that Pope Francis describes events, with the ...

No, there is not general agreement as to the exact historical accuracy of John Foxe's work. The majority of events are considered to be historical and widely accepted to be based on good sources such as eyewitness records, however doubt is often cast on the retelling aspect. The primary accusation brought against Foxe's Book of Martyrs (originally titled ...

Here is a more full context: May we not, by a reasonable analogy, suppose likewise that there is no experience of the spirit so transcendent and supernatural, no vision of Deity Himself so close and so far beyond all images and emotions, that to it also there cannot be an appropriate correspondence on the sensory level? Not by a new sense but by ...

I admittedly did not attend seminary; but ... The general advice I've heard in homilies (and in at least a few videos by prominent Catholics online) was reminded to me a few weeks back at a Bible study when I mentioned to the group about the pitfalls of arguing God, religion, morality, etc. on Facebook. The advice, in brief, is that our main purpose in ...

Intimacy is the key: God is relational, and even within the Trinity, we know that God is “three persons” that are relational. In His creation, God fashioned man for relationships. If one had to identify the Bible or God Himself with one word, “love” would be the most likely candidate. The reason is that “love” speaks specifically to “relationships”. ...

Since the question asks "what different perspectives", let me present one perspective. The answer would be "Only if those extra-Biblical texts are in harmony with the Bible" for it is written "To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isaiah 8:20) However it is written ...

You've probably found something by now, but if not, St Maximilian's writings are available online, though mostly in Polish (I found a few articles in Latin) on the website of Niepokalanow (Mary's Town), the Franciscan community founded by St Maximilian near Warsaw, Poland) http://www.niepokalanow.pl/pisma From what I gather, there are 2 volumes published in ...

To do the most good, the literature should be targeted. If the person has been asking about a topic, then any book you give on that topic has a chance to inform the person. Obviously, if he is asking about how to get saved, there is literature for this, whether in book form, email, a Chick tract, or printout from the Internet. I don’t choose books at ...

I don't really think this question is on-topic for this site, since it's not about Christianity. It's probably not really on topic on any SE site, since it's just a discussion topic, and the only authoritative source for an answer died 49 years 11 months ago today. Having said that, I think the best answer I can provide to your question: When he said ...

Before I get to the point, I'm going to start with how we understand Scripture, even though your question is not about an exact phrase found in Scripture, because it sets a principle for understanding literature that is common not just to Biblical studies, but to other texts as well. Next, I'm going to preface this with an honest "We really don't know, we ...

This book imitates the Quran, or tries to imitate it, in order to answer the Quran. The translator, Anis Shorrosh is allegedly also the writer. He is an evangelical Christian. The ideology and theology of the book is based on the beliefs and ideas of this man, and his understanding of Christianity. The main idea of the book is to tell Christianity in a ...

I believe he is saying that God is a person who is full of happiness and goodness. Namely Love love for all mankind. He uses every experienced pleasure as an opportunity to give gratitude and contemplate the majesty of God. The God of all creation. As can be seen here: Adoration says, ‘What must be the quality of that Being whose far-off and ...

The Catholic Church is by far the oldest and largest branch of Christianity that does not adhere to the doctrine of sola scriptura. The doctrine of sola scriptura proclaims the canonical Scriptures, especially the New Testament, to be the only infallible source and rule of faith and practice, and asserts the right of private interpretation of the same, ...

When I attended Bible school about 10 years ago it was highly associated with this nondenominational church that could not be described by any other word except evangelical. Their "formula" (though they hated using that word) for evangelism was summed up thus: The Process: “Developing disciples through SCMD.” Everything we do at Real Life Ministries ...
