I don't find any of their responses to be credible. They use personal attacks instead of using any real facts. The Catholics come out looking intelligent in all the debates I have seen. They are no different than the Chick booklets.
I really haven't seen too many loving, caring and Christian people over there. They have no interest in the history of the Church or Christianity as a whole. They are all their own little popes.
If if weren't for Catholics who go to CARM and post the website would close or at least have many fewer posters. If you go to any of the other areas, i.e. Baptist, Lutherans, Church of Christ etc. they have very few posts.
I understand that many Catholics feel called to go there and try to correct the lies and feel that maybe someone who is looking for the truth and happens on CARM will be saved from believing the horrible junk posted, but I think if all Catholics would abondon that site, it would be the end of it. We are what keeps it going.
Also it is very bad for ones soul to even read the posts. There is no love there, no fruits of the Spirit, there is nothing to uplift a person's faith. Only very articulate and knowledgeable Catholics should be posting there.
I can't and won't judge them as to their final distination, but at times I wonder how God will judge them. We had one poster here who said he was Catholic and would go back and forth to CARM and say terrible things about the Catholic Church and then would return to CAF and had a different view. He acted like he just had questions about the faith, but in fact, he in my opinion was playing with us.
I don't go there anymore, never posted there, but found it to be harmful to my spiritual life. I am a convert and know my faith very well and I am strong in my faith, but reading such garbage seems to interfer with our spiritual welfare. Not our faith, but it is just depressing to be honest to see how many who call themselves Christians are not practicing what God calls a Christian to be.
Yours in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
