My wife was sent this link by a Baptist friend of hers. I highly recommend everyone watch it. He is the epitome of Archbishop Fulten Sheen’s comment that, while many hate what they wrongly believe the Catholic Church to be, very few actually hate the Catholic Church.

I’ll be giving a more detailed response ot my wife’s friend, but for you guys, you’ll notice that up to 8:41-ish, then 9:09-10:30, 10:48-ish, 12:21-14:33, 16:43-ish, 19:45-ish…he basically gives, unwittingly, the Catholic doctrines of “Mary, Mother of God” and “Mary, the Arc of the New Covenant”.
At 8:41-ish and around 10:48 he remarks how Catholics go too far and “worship” Mary. I wish he would give the pertinent Catholic doctrine that leads him to this conclusion. Other than those remarks, this sermon could easily have come from a Catholic pulpit (excepting a few remark about the Second Coming and when a person is “saved” or “born again”).
At 25:27 and 29:48, he mentions, heavily, that Christ is the King. “Christ the King”. It’s such a great opportunity for Catholics to take this preacher’s own words and ask, “what do you think that means in relation to Mt 16:18-19 where Christ, the King, hands Peter the kings to the Kingdom?” In light of “Christ the King”, it MUST be seen in light of Is 22:22…the King granting an earthly stewardship upon Peter.
From 34:00-35:30, I simply fall in love with his in-depth look at the true depth of Christ’s sacrifice for us. He took on human flesh, for eternity, for our sake. The wounds in His hands will be there for ever.
