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. Questions Covered: 04:32 – I read James 1:17 and it says that God “has no shadow of change” but frequently in the Old Testament, he changes his mind about punishing the Israelites. How do you explain this contradiction? 11:16 – What is the authorship of the prophecy of Daniel? Did Daniel write it? 17:34 – Where can I get honest information about Vatican II? It is really hard for me to tell who to believe about this. 28:42 – How can I prove papal supremacy to Protestants, using the Church councils? 34:55 – Some people say that Catholics are meant to fight evil, but Jesus says to turn the other cheek. Which is it? 47:00 – I told my Catholic friend who got married that I couldn’t go to his wedding because he was getting married outside of the Church. Was this the right thing to do? 53:10 – Why are some angels called saints? How could they become a saint?
