PODCAST: An Honest Look At Catholicism

I have to apologize, because I've been terrible at scheduling Look Up Fellowship Media (LUFM) podcasts ahead of time so that you will know when you can expect another message, Bible study, and teaching.

For the most part, I've tried to commit myself to doing at least one new podcast per week, but have allowed for the Lord to determine if and when I actually do them, let alone to determine just how long each broadcast actually is (Proverbs 16:1; Proverbs 16:9; Proverbs 19:21).

That being said, last night was one of those times when I came home, found that an opportunity had presented itself, and so I spent approximately 2.5 hours taking an honest look at Catholicism (specifically, the uncomfortable truth about the beliefs, practices, teachings, and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church led by the Pope) for my dear family members and friends who are practicing Catholics.

Admittedly, this particular message was not from a Lutheran perspective per se, but more from a general Christian perspective. God willing, perhaps our next one will tackle this very important subject from the view of a Confessional Lutheran like me.

PODCAST: An Honest Look At The Roman Catholic Church And The Pope

Regardless of the denomination to which we belong, as Christians, we are expected to pursue not just unity in love, but unity in doctrine above all else (Ephesians 4). However, what do we do when the beliefs, practices, teachings, and traditions of the largest representation of the Christian faith seems to contradict the very Word of God itself? Please join LUFM's Wake Up Church! as we speak "the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15) as it pertains to a very sensitive, but serious subject with eternal implications.

Please spend some time with that urgent message and warning, especially as the world's attention is squarely focused on Rome and the Vatican this week.

More importantly, please feel free to share it with those family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors who are near and dear to you who need to hear the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15).

Thank you for visiting A Lutheran Layman! Please feel free to leave a comment or a question since we do not exercise censorship. We've seen a similar policy with other blogs and it's worth repeating: Please act as if you're a guest in my home, and we'll get along just fine. I think anyone would agree that the kind of back-and-forth that is characteristic of blogs/chat forums and social media is becoming tiresome for all of us. Still, we should confess, edify, and love (and contend and defend when needed). Bottom line? Search the Scriptures! Apply Acts 17:11 to anything and everything you find here and, if you do happen to disagree with something you find here (which is certainly ok), or think I'm "irresponsible" and "wrong" for writing it, then please refute my position by supporting yours with Scripture and/or the Confessions. I don't think that's an unreasonable request, especially for those who identify themselves as "Christians" here, right? Besides, Proverbs 27:17 tells us "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another" and 2 Timothy 3:16 says, "all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness." If you have an opinion that's great, I welcome it, but try to support it using God's Word. I mean, if the goal here is to help us all arrive at the truth of God's Word (myself included), then it should be easy to follow through on this one simple request (I'm talking to all you "Anonymous" visitors out there). Grace and peace to you and yours!
