Video – No Apologies #122: The Heresy of Pelagianism

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010
Click to Play Video
No Apologies #122 -  ( 05min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Pelagius denied the existence of original sin. All men are born into the world in the exact state that Adam was, and as such are perfectly capable of living a completely sinless life by our own will power. Knowledge of this heresy can be helpful in dealing with those who view infant baptism as unnecessary or un-scriptural.

Ave Maria!

No Apologies #121 -  ( 06min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Arianism taught that Christ was not equal to the Father but was a creature made by the Father. This heresy swept through the Church in the 4th century and is the fruit of rationalizing and privately interpreting many Scripture passages.

Video – No Apologies #120: Against the Sedevacantists

No Apologies #120 – ( 08min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Update: Audio problem has been fixed.

The Sedevacantist professes that the Seat of Peter is now vacant. Benedict XVI  is a false pope posing as the legitimate Vicar of Christ. Their reasoning is that he, and at least 4 of  his predecessors, have taught and believe heresy, and so automatically are deposed of their office. Their error is private judgment, which when looked at reveals a foundation built upon sand.

Video – No Apologies #119: The Heresy of Sabellianism

No Apologies #119 – Type the Caption here ( 04min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Sabellianism taught that the 3 Persons in the Trinity were not distinct persons but rather 3 different modes or offices that the 1 God appeared in. Knowledge of their error is helpful in dealing with those who believe that the Bible is the sole transmitter of the Deposit of Faith. Sabellius broke from Sacred Tradition and it was this that orthodox opponents used to combat him.

No Apologies #118 -  ( 05min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

The Montanists were a sect which arose towards the end of the 2nd Century. Knowledge of them can be helpful in dealing with those who accept private judgment as their guide.

No Apologies #117 – ( 06min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

A Gnostic believed in a salvation based on secret knowledge which when possessed put him beyond other men and the moral law. The same is promised today through the New Age Movement.

Video – No Apologies #116: The heresy of the Judaizers

No Apologies #116 – ( 07min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Today we begin a short series looking at some of the major heresies that have shown themselves throughout the centuries. Knowledge of these errors will be helpful in any apologetic work. The Judaizers were Jewish-Christian converts who held that the Mosaic law still had to be observed. Knowledge of them helps us understand what St. Paul is referring to in his letters when he says things like:  “For we hold that a man is justified by faith apart form works of the law.” (Romans 3:28)

Video – No Apologies #115: Myths of the Spanish Inquisition

No Apologies #115 – ( 07min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Much of the scandal and misunderstanding against the Inquisition is rooted in grossly exaggerated numbers and ideas. Many of these myths were recently brought to light by the non-catholic BBC in a documentary called “The Myth of the Spanish Inquisition.”

Video – No Apologies #114: The Spanish Inquisition In Context

No Apologies #114 ( 05min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Many people point to the existence of the Spanish Inquisition as a proof that the Catholic Church could not be founded by Christ. This claim is illogical in itself and also false because it’s based on a false conception of the Inquisition. Today we look at one of the pillars of that false conception: pulling it out of it’s historical context.

No Apologies #113 -The Apostles and the martrys were not spared their pains. ( 04min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

The rapture also contradicts Scripture in that it is to take place before the tribulation and that it doesn’t recognize the value of trials and suffering.

No Apologies #112 – ( 03min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

“Two men will be in the field, one will b e taken and the other left.” ‘Rapturists’ believe that this text from Matthew’s Gospel teaches the rapture. A closer look shows that you can only find this doctrine here when you isolate the verses and read the rapture into the text.

No Apologies #111 – ( 06min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Most fundamentalist teach their belief in the rapture, where those who are to be saved are taken silently up to the heavens to be with Christ before the great tribulation. This teaching is based on a bad interpretation of St. Paul.

Video – No Apologies #110 – Apocalypse 1000 Year Reign

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

No Apologies #110 – ( 07min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

All Christians profess their belief that Christ will (or already has ) returned. But what that exactly means and how that will (or already has) come about can vary greatly. One of those differences is in the understanding of the “1000 years” reign of Christ spoken of in the book of revelation. How can we rightly interpret this in light of other Scripture passages?

No Apologies #109 – There can be self-deception and false assurance: Matt 7:21 ( 04min) >>> Play

Protestants presume salvation is never lost. Catholics make the Scriptural distinction between “infallible certitude” and “confident assurance.”

No Apologies #108 – “…he who endures to the end will be saved.”( 04min) >>> Play

Ave Maria!

Many protestant groups hold that once a person accepts Christ as Saviour, he is at that moment saved and there is nothing the person can do to lose that salvation. But the Bible is clear that like Adam and Eve we are able to fall from grace.
