“Search the Scriptures” Debate MP3
A Catholic/Protestant Debate
Patrick Madrid vs. Dr. Rowland Ward
Topic One: “Sola Scriptura — Is the Bible Formally Sufficient as the Rule of Faith?”
Topic Two: “Salvation and Justification — What Must We Do (if Anything) To Be Saved?”
This exciting and informative debate took place in 1996 before an audience of approximately 300 Catholics and Protestants in Melbourne, Australia during one of Patrick Madrid’s speaking visits to that country. Dr. Rowland Ward is a Reformed Protestant minister and theologian, an author, and is active in apologetics.
The themes of the debate, authority and salvation, are at the core of the controversy between Catholics and Protestants, and in this exchange you’ll learn how Catholics can respond with Scripture to the standard arguments that are often posed by Protestants. Dr. Ward was an articulate debater and gave a helpful explanation of Reformed Protestant views on these two key issues. Patrick Madrid shows how to respond, gently but firmly, using the Bible, when sharing the Catholic teaching on these subjects with Protestants. Riveting!
