The Bible and the Fathers

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 10.13.11

Polycarp
Icon of St. Polycarp

It was the Bible that made me read the Fathers.
When I was studying for the Presbyterian ministry, I wanted to understand the world where Jesus lived and where the apostles preached.

St. Paul Center to Government Regulators:

"Your Mandate is a violation of the Moral Law and of our Catholic conscience"

Posted by St. Paul Center on 09.28.11

Why the Pope has to be Infallible, Part 2a

Posted by Dr. John Bergsma on 08.31.11

The semester is in full swing for many of us, and the time to blog is scarce.  In preparation for my next post on papal infallibility, I’d like to call attention to this well-known essay by Protestant theologian Stephen Long from Garret-Nelson Seminary, who made some excellent and succinct remarks on the necessity of the papacy during the time of John Paul II’s funeral and the election of Benedict...  [Continue Reading]
