Description

Many will grant that he was a rabbi, missionary, mystic, polemicist, author, and apostle. However, they will not grant that the man enshrined in the mosaics, statues, and stained glass of a thousand cathedrals is the Paul of history. Join us as we discover a Paul who is Catholic, a theologian who is sacramental, a churchman who is hierarchical, a mystic who is orthodox.

Was the Apostle Paul Catholic or Protestant?

When Evangelicals read Paul, they observe a stress on “faith” and so they focus on this aspect of Paul’s teaching. The Catholic Church reads Paul and discovers in his writings a stress on faith but in the context of various over doctrines: baptism, the church, good works, tradition, liturgy, sanctification, etc. To use an illustration, it is as if two different people look at a written piece of music. The first looks at the piece and after studying concludes, “The note “D” seems to be predominate.” Then he walks over to the piano and strikes a “D” on the piano. The other person studies the same sheet of music and concludes, “This piece of music is in the key of D.” He then walks over to the piano and plays the beautiful piece of music from the sheet in the key of D. The first person tried to distill the music down to one note and as a result, he neglected the rest. However, the second person realized that “D” was the overarching theme and yet he incorporated all the other notes so that something more beautiful resulted. Evangelicals and other kinds of Protestants in their commendable zeal often distill the writings of Saint Paul to such an extent that they miss the complexities and nuances of the Apostle. This is especially the case when it comes to Saint Paul’s doctrine of salvation. As a result, the Evangelical doctrine of “once saved always saved” misses the nuances of Paul’s doctrine. Paul does in fact teach that “nothing can separate us from the love of God” (Rom 8:39). However, he also clearly states that certain Christians have “fallen from grace” (Gal 5:4). What does the Apostle mean when he says that certain Christians have fallen from grace?

Great Catholic blog (for Protestants, too)

These St Paul podcasts are articulate and to the point. Quality stuff. Lots of Scripture and Bible quotes. So if you're Catholic, keep your Bible handy! If you're looking for apologetics, this is a podcast that you want to subscribe to.

Good for Protestants

These podcasts were great to listen to - and I hope there will be more than 9. These would be great for Protestants to listen to as they are embellished with scripture and resounding of the Lord's majesty and the historicity of the faith. I am not Catholic and I highly recommend these podcasts to anyone who either wants to understand the faith (what for a family member converting) or who *thinks* they know what catholics teach but have never actually researched the subject (like myself). Put them on your ipod, listen to them in the car, turn up the volume and listen while cooking. You will be enriched and amazed at the deepness of scripture and faith.
