comment What is the understanding of “an evil spirit from the LORD tormented him”?
It means that God used an evil spirit as an agent to move Saul to either repent, or as a means to open the door for David to be called in to play for him. The good God was able to use what is bad to create a better good in the end.

comment Literal or legend: how do Catholics treat non-Biblical miracles?
I should point out that authorities in the Roman Catholic church take pains to research whether these stories are credible or not. Just because the stories are published in a Catholic bookstore doesn't mean they have been vetted by Catholic historians. Plenty of Catholics in a secularized society don't believe in the more sensationalized stories.

comment What is the Catholic concept of grace?
@DavidStratton You missed my point - the answer doesn't match the greatness of the gift, only that it was a gift. I'm sure the Catholic concept of grace is that it is more than a gift. What is the concept of "grace"?

You are saying that it's a gift, but that isn't saying much, because an iPhone is a gift too. Grace = iPhone?

comment What is the Catholic concept of grace?
This would be a better answer if you summed it up in layman's language. It's so full of churchspeak that it's all gobbledegook to me.

comment Moses - did he kill thousands?
"If some judge..." God is not "some judge." Idolatry is punishable by death. Moses was zealous in carrying out God's law (Exod. 20:3-5). All the Israelites heard this at Mt. Sinai.

comment By what ordinary methods has God preserved infallibility in the Catholic Church?
Your first source says, "This infallibility extends as far as does the deposit of divine Revelation." Where men assert the Word of God as truth to be followed, so infallibility continues. In other words, it is the Roman Catholic church's assertion that when the Pope speaks in accordance to Divine Scripture, he is speaking infallibly. So God does not "preserve" infallibility unless you accept the idea that infallibility continues as long as men and women assert the truth of the word of God.

comment What of all those who just don't know
"God allows us to choose to ignore His presence revealed through Scripture, the Holy Spirit, and the existence of nature." So you are saying that we can come to salvation through the existence of nature, apart from Christ?
