Dear friends,

Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, has called for an increase in ecumenical dialogue. Here is a great opportunity for this:

Yesterday I was listening to the radio on my way home from work and I happened to catch the nationally syndicated Christian radio show, Truth Talk Live, which some of you are familiar with. The topic was “What is your Authority?” and host Stu Epperson answered calls, mainly from protestants, explaining why the bible is their authority. He did get a call from a mormon explainly her faith in the Book of Mormon. He was asking for Catholics to call in, but none did and time was up.

Stu was very excited about this topic and said today’s show would be a continuation… Many times Catholics will either be guests or callers on his show and aren’t quite in line with the Church. Other times, along with some of you, I have called in and we have been able to articulate our Catholic faith. As you’ll see below, there are many cities this radio show is broadcast to. These thousands of listeners deserve to hear the truth, and to hear it from the heart of a practicing Catholic.

If you are comfortable with speaking on live national radio and are good with apolegetics (defending our faith) - or know someone who is (please forward email),
the show is live today from 5-6pm - call 1-866-34-TRUTH and may the Holy Spirit speak through you!

Also some cities may not air this show at that time, but if you have access to a computer, listen online at www.truthtalklive.com

Thanks and God Bless!

I was sent this email by a friend, I thought I post it here to see if anyone would be willing to call in and help me defend the faith on a Protestant Radio Program. Plus Hopefully we can give them something to think about. Hope to hear you guys on this radio station.

If it’s a protestant radio program isn’t it a waste of time. I listened to the “Bible answer man” and whenever a Catholic would call in he would just cut them off, not let them finish and they were never allowed to make their point.

I’d be interested to know if those at truthtalklive are infallibly certain that what they are professing as truth is objectively true. If so, how?

What do you think their answer would be?

In Christ,

If you are allowed to make your point, to present your point of view–then it’s not a waste of time–you may reach one protestant and start them thinking. You don’t know how many seeds might be planted. Outreach is never a waste of time–we must plant the seeds.
Sounds like the host of this show wanted Catholics to call in–doubt he’d cut them off.

Let’s hope you’re right.

Jesus would want us to at least try and make His point. Although you do not need to be Catholic to be a Christian, there are 'some’ so called Christians and semi-Christians out there that need our help. Call the program and at least try to make your points.

Good luck,

We don’t watch the show.

God bless you.

That’s a big if. I haven’t seen one yet that is honestly interested in entertaining any opposing points of view or even politely listening.
