Default A COURSE IN MIRACLES (ACIM)-How to refute assertions of errors in the Bible?

My son and daughter-in-law who are both baptized Catholics are studying the book " A Course in Miracles". I need practical directions to respond to this book's denial of sin, guilt , suffering and the need for a Savior . This book denies that Jesus Christ is Divine and is the begotten not created Son of God.The book's purpose is to correct the "errors" of the Sacred Scriptures. I am concerned for my grandson and future ones who will be taught these heretical beliefs. Your help will be appreciated.

Default Re: A COURSE IN MIRACLES (ACIM)-How to refute assertions of errors in the Bible?

Unfortunately, space and time constraints prevent a detailed discussion of the topics you mentioned. However, the following links will lead you to the answers you’re looking for (see footnotes on all Catechism references). I also recommend you read Fr. Groeshel’s book A Still Small Voice. He dedicates a chapter to the Course in Miracles.

Denial of sin:
Sin (reality of sin): Catechism of the Catholic Church no. 386-412

Guilt:
Inherited guilt: http://www.ewtn.com/library/ANSWERS/JUSTIF.HTM
Personal guilt: http://www.ewtn.com/library/ANSWERS/JUSTIF.HTM

Suffering: Catechism of the Catholic Church no. 385-412

The need for a Savior: Catechism of the Catholic Church no. 389 “Jesus is the Savior of all men”

Jesus is not divine: Catechism of the Catholic Church no. 445

Errors in scripture: Catechism of the Catholic Church no. 107

Article: A Course in Miracles by Edward R Hryczyk
