Which is the Church Christ established?
In clear, easy-to-understand language, Tim explains how Christ founded a church and how Protestant belief in the innerancy of the Bible actually rests on the Catholic Church's endorsement that, through the gift of divine inspiration, the Bible is free from error in the message it intends to convey. By sharing dramatic examples from Scripture and other early Christian writings, Tim shows how the Church Fathers unanimously insisted that apostolic authority must be the official authority given by Christ and the interpreter of the Bible; and not individual believers, or even Scripture itself. And their concern has proved to be well-founded. As Tim powerfully relates, precisely because Sola Scriptura encourages private interpretation of the Bile, this misguided doctrine has been responsible for the fragmenting of Protestantism into tens of thousands of rival denominations!
As every Catholic evangelist knows, a sincere attempt to explain that Christ founded the Church on Peter the Rock is met with the cry 'That's not in the Bible!'. this is because of classic Protestant misinterpretations of the Bible. Tim argues and supports his argument with Scripture and history, stating that Peter was the first Pope and since Peter there has been an unbroken succession of Popes.
In this fact-filled talk, Tim Staples explodes the Reformation-era myths about Church suppression of the Bible and provides listeners with the authentic Biblical teaching that Scripture and Tradition comprise a single deposit of Faith. In his typically engaging and approachable style, Tim empowers the Catholic Faithful with the Scriptural keys needed to meet the challenge of 'Christ didn't establish one Church only' with dramatic, faith-changing results!
As every Catholic evangelist knows, a sincere attempt to explain Catholic teaching, in particular 'which is the true Church?' is often met with the cry 'that's not in the Bible!' Ad not because Catholic teachings aren't supported by God's Word, but because of classic Protestant misinterpretations of the Bible.
