Callers choose the topics during Open Forum, peppering our guests with questions on every aspect of Catholic life and faith, the moral life, and even philosophical topics that touch on general religious belief. Book Tim to speak at your parish or next event. Questions Covered: 02:17 - My friend said that the Church is anyone and everyone who believes in Christ. Is this true or is there more to it? 06:54 - my friend doesn’t believe that God is all-powerful or all-knowing, but he does believe that God is the creator of everything. How can I respond to that? 13:30 - I am a youth minister. How can I keep my own faith alive and strong so that I can continue giving to the kids? 22:45 - What is the proper behavior for leaving when the monstrance is exposed? 29:50 - How can I use apologetics with my Pentecostal friend? 38:18 - Are we going to have any scars on us in heaven? Are we able to look down on our relatives still on earth? 42:52 - Do you know any current Catholic writers who have addressed cosmology? 46:16 - A Protestant told me the Catholic Church was an invention of the Roman government. Is this true? How can I respond? 52:06 - Were animals affected by the fall of mankind? Resources Mentioned: Magis Center -Does belief in God even make sense today?
