I have a friend who is a fallen away Catholic and attends a Baptist church and she asked me for the Church’s teaching on predestination. Could you please give me one that would help her understand. I think that she is starting to question what she is hearing from those outside of the Church and I would like to help her discern the issue. Thanks and God bless.


Yeah, Akin article in This Rock on Tiptoe Through TULIP

And longer one by Jim Burnham on my site, compares Catholic teaching with Calvinism

Phil P


Forgive me for taking so long to reply but I want to thank you for the help that you gave. I am going over both articles with my friend and hope that the Holy Spirit will guide her back to where I know her heart is. God bless
