Arguing with Non-Catholics


A couple of nights ago I gave my talk, How to Win an Argument Without Losing a Soul.

After the talk we had about 30 minutes of questions and answers. Here is the audio of that Q&A.

Questions Asked

1. My friend said he doesn’t need grace because he already has it?

2. How do I explain the Eucharist to my Protestant friend?

3. What is a loving way to end a conversation that’ not going anywhere?

4. I have a tough time being a good Catholic without bringing others along, so I avoid evangelizing. Is that okay?

5. My friend always bashes the Church. How should I respond to him? Should I call it quits?

6. I get very passionate about my faith. I am often accused of shouting and coming off as too strong. Suggestions?

7. I have an acquaintance who has a gripe against a Bishop. Because of that he has left the Church. How do I witness to someone like that?

8. Is only the Catholic religion true? Will Catholics be the only ones saved?

    1. Of course. In the past I’ve made the mistake of “winging it” instead of being humble and just admitting, “that’s a good question. I don’t know the answer, but here’s a source that might e of help.” I aways pray for humility before these sessions, now.

      1. Hahaha! I love your sense of humor! You were fantastic at the Ave Maria conference back in July. 🙂 Do you think you’ll come again?

        How did you start learning about the Faith? Answering questions, I mean. I would love to be an apologist, but I have no idea where to start.

      2. Rana, thank you. If they invite me back I’d love to come back!

        I started learning about my faith (and continue to learn about it) because I was and am intensely interested in questions about God, and life, and meaning, etc.

        Here’s an mp3 I’d suggest:

        Also, make sure you have read the following books:

        Answering Atheism by Trent Horn
        Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
        Rome Sweet Home by Scott Hahn.

        I hope that is a help
