I pray that my explanations are completely accurate and agree with the official teachings of the Catholic Church. But please do not take my word for it, read the Catechism of the Catholic Church for yourself. I also pray that I have represented the views of Protestants in a fair and respectful manner. If I haven't, please let me know.

New Topic Added January 23, 2000: Confession to a Priest - The Sacrament of Reconciliation

A look at the Catholic Church's belief in Sacred Scripture as well as Sacred Tradition. Discusses Martin Luther's concept of sola scriptura and shows that the Bible is not self-interpreting.

Shows that the Deuterocanonical books (commonly called the "The Apocrypha") were indeed a part of the early Church's Bible.

A look at the Catholic Church's teaching on salvation based on "grace alone." Discusses Martin Luther's concept of sola fide and shows that the Bible contradicts his concept.

Discusses the Catholic practice of praying through Mary and the saints to God. Shows Biblical and historical evidence for intercessory prayer.
