Ask A Question


I focus on the "why" and "how" questions of the Faith and one`s need for the Church to overcome sin, live the life God wishes us, and to become what God wants us to be. I seek to provide insight and information such that you are then able to see for yourself the answer to your questions.

Experience in the area

Years of extensive research, thought, and prayerful meditation on many of the issues that trouble Catholics today, taught catechetical classes to teenagers and adults, answered many questions already.

What do you like about this subject?

I enjoy seeing the miraculous power of God working through the course of history and in the growth in the lives of those who open up to it and yield to God's standards and the Graces flowing from His Sacraments.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to promote a great deal more understanding among those of differing legitimate opinions and more clarity to see through and reject those opinions and assumptions which are demonstrably false and self-destructive.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Jesus Christ came not only to die for our sins, fulfill the Jewish Law, and preach the Gospel, but also to found a Church which is united, sanctified, universal, and which has continued as the same identical thing from His time until ours and will continue to the end of time.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

The traditional Catholic community IS the Roman Catholic Church. The distinction between the Catholic Church and the Vatican institution (decreed in Lumen Gentium) allowed much of the latter to fall into spiritual darkness, throwing many Catholics and the world into their present confusion. However the Church still exists as a visible institution and remains as good a moral compass as ever.

We do what we can to avoid sin, and for what we cannot do we obtain forgiveness and accept His cleansing, that glorified and welcomed into Heaven (where no unrighteousness can exist) we take our place

2017-02-25 The Need for the Church to overcome sin?:

Are you really asking the question or just looking to pretend you can outsmart the writer of the answer?  (I ask rhetorically.)  The Scriptures you cite (and all others) pretty much say what my first answer

2017-02-25 The Need for the Church to overcome sin?:

Through Christ, the price is paid for sin.  There still remains the sin itself to be dealt with.  When we go to Heaven (assuming we do, for there does exist that other alternative if we don't), we do not

2016-07-01 breath of life:

It is said that God creates everything out of nothing.  That includes our own personal and private life as a person (creation is ongoing in at least that sense).  It would therefore be meaningless to ask
