Tract Project

I've been thinking lately that there's a definite lack of Catholic apologetics materials that relate specifically to the Church of Christ. I'm going to try to remedy that lack by finding Church of Christ tracts (preferably of the non-institutional variety) and giving a Catholic response to the tract.

Unfortunately the average CofC tract is so full of errors that I could probably write a book in response.

My experience with CofC thinking is that they rely heavily on soundbite prooftexting. They will also ignore any appeals to the early church fathers. Hence my goal is to try to use as much scripture as possible to support the Catholic position.

So if anyone comes across a good tract, feel free to send it my way!

I remember reading Catholicism and Fundamentalism, and Keating saying that part of the problem with debunking, say, Loraine Boettner's Roman Catholicism is that it was so full of factual errors, half-truths, and outright lies (with no citations whatsoever) that rebutting a paragraph could take several pages.

Good luck!

For some reason, your blog wasn't on my RSS reader. That's a shame.

I think we need to just go back to the ole Alexander Campbell tactics and have us a debate! It could be held at Freed or Harding or Florida College.

By the way, that was me who left that comment. Sorry I hit "enter" by accident and it posted.

The problem is that our entire culture is a "sound-bite culture", which means even refuts have to be complete sound bites.

It's insane.

That's how we know we're in a suburb of Hell (which has been the state of the world since the Fall).
