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!

“Hold Fast to the Traditions” Debate

Patrick Madrid vs. Rev. Frank Needham

Topic One: “Is the Catholic Doctrine of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist Biblical?”
Topic Two: “What Is the Christian’s Final Authority, the Bible Alone, or the Bible, Tradition, and the Magisterium?”

This is a block-buster of a debate! Taped in Auckland New, Zealand at Rev. Needham’s church before a large audience of several hundred Protestants and Catholics. This exchange between Patrick Madrid and Pentecostal minister, Frank Needham was friendly and polite but still very intense, exciting, and at times quite dramatic. The audience was comprised mainly of the members of the congregation of that Pentecostal church, most of whom were former Catholics. Great audience participation and an excellent opportunity to see how many Protestants attack the Catholic doctrine of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist and how they try to defend their theory of going by the Bible alone. You’ll be at the edge of your seat — the audience at the debate was!

Communion of Saints Debate

Filed under CD's, Debates, Featured, Products

Patrick Madrid vs. James White 

This debate, held in New York before a live audience of nearly 1,000 people, was a great opportunity to contrast the Catholic and Reformed Protestant views on the nature and meaning of the communion of saints. The exchange concentrated primarily on the biblical evidence surrounding this issue. Patrick Madrid endeavored to demonstrate the biblical evidence for the Catholic teaching, which rests on the facts that 1) the Church is the Body of Christ, 2) that there is only one Body (not one in heaven and one on earth), 3) that death does not separate the members of the Body, and 4) that all members of the Body of Christ are commanded to pray for and spiritually assist one another, and this includes the Blessed Virgin Mary and the saints in heaven.

The debate also focused heavily on the testimony of the early Church on the subject of venerating Mary and the saints. Patrick showed — especially through the testimony of great Catholic bishops such as St. Athanasius, St. Augustine, and St. John Chrysostom, as well as other important early Catholic Scripture scholars and bishops — that the early Christians universally venerated the saints and invoked their intercession. this is a debate you will really enjoy and benefit from seeing. The spectacle of two veteran apologist — Catholic vs. Protestant — go at it in a clash that kept the audience members on the edge of their seats for three hours!

Celibacy and the Priesthood

January 11, 2011 by  
Filed under CD's, Featured, Products

Patrick Madrid and Fr. Ray Ryland tackle the complex and controversial subject of celibacy in the priesthood, presenting the facts about its history and meaning. Together, they dispose of common myths (such as that it was instituted only in the tenth century) and show why this is a wise discipline. Fr. Ryland, a married clergy convert from Protestantism who is a professor of theology emeritus at Franciscan University of Steubenville, offers a superb analysis of the causes of the current priestly moral scandals and explains why eliminating celibacy won’t resolve either the priest shortage or the current moral scandals. This audio set will help you understand the real issues that the pundits and critics only talk around. A perfect gift for your priest friends!

Catholics and the Rapture

January 11, 2011 by  
Filed under CD's, Products

Their co-authors, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, base their fictional books about the “End Times” on an eccentric and novel Protestant theory known as the secret “rapture,” which they claim will be a third, “invisible,” coming of Christ to snatch away all “true Christians” from the earth before the terrors of the Tribulation and the reign of the Antichrist begin.
Are these End Times stories merely a harmless diversion for rapture-believing Protestants and curious Catholics? Or is there something more dangerous in the theology and attitudes this mushrooming “rapture industry” is promoting?
Get the facts in this explosive audio set by best-selling Catholic author and apologist Patrick Madrid as he’s joined by Carl Olson, a prolific Catholic writer, apologist, and convert from Protestant Fundamentalism. Together, they examine the problems with the Left Behind books and explain exactly what the Bible really says — and doesn’t say —about the rapture, the Tribulation, and the Second Coming of Christ. An excellent resource to share with your Evangelical and Fundamentalist Protestant friends!
