  2. Charbel says:

    Great interview Matt! I pray that the misconceptions that Don has regarding the Catholic Church are cleared and that he may see the truth of the Catholic Church through its biblical and historical roots.

    In was baptized as an infant and was raised in a legalistic -religious family in which we had many unwritten rules that were to be followed. It wasn’t until my early twenties that I developed a personal relationship with Christ my savior.
    I hesitate in baptizing out children when I don’t want to take away from when they accept Christ as their personal savior by baptizing them without them knowing why.
    My husband and I appreciate your discussion on this topic and will continue to be in prayer about God’speace call on this for our family. We have dedicated each of them and look or waited to the day they accept Christ as their own Lord and Savior:) .

    Great interview Matt. Thanks for posting. If after reading the books that you promised to send Don you hear back from him please share his thoughts.

    Great job Matt, all your points regarding the Eucharistic were spot on. Would adding to the point regarding Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano, Italy 750 A.D help support your case?

  6. BanksShot says:

    that was great!!! my wife & I listened and we still think he should be catholic!

  7. Thank you for this great talk. Christ will always give more than what we deserve.

    Again gentlemen thank you for a refreshingly frank and mutually respectful exchange of view’s. I love being catholic! and something you said Matt hit me like a block to the face, why if Christ is sooo close to me in the Mass, why am i not going daily to receive him???

  9. Rafael Mora says:

    thank you Matt; exellent. the only correct thing from protestant point of view is bad people in the C.C. ?but will bad people make me leave the true church: of coarse not. God will judge them. P.S. being a sinner and in the wrong church is by far worst then a sinner in the right church, plus we have the Sacrament of repentence. thamk you Lord

    I am so grateful for the honesty of this conversation. Thank you. I have to say I was not impressed at all with Don Smarto’s response to John 6. I wish so much he would have taken the time to pick it apart more and really express to the audience his understanding of it.
    Because the Eucharist is at the heart of our life with Christ, I think it would be really powerful if you found someone who would be willing to discuss solely the Eucharist with you and their protestant defense against it being the real presence of Jesus. I personally would really appreciate it! I think as catholics a greater reverence and understanding of the Eucharist is really needed.

    Just heard a Baptist minister call in to open line for non-Catholics 5/13, he was really trying to mix it up with Steve Ray about praying to the saints. It sounded exactly like Don Smarto. Steve Ray with gentle clarity, educated the pastor with charity and truth. Praying for Don, that he discern the truth and become a friend of the Catholic Church and maybe return one day.
