Catholic Church (Bro. RJ Seno) vs Missionary Baptist (Pastor Bernardo) – November 2, 2014 Debate
by John Carlo
On the All Souls day last November 2, 2014, God shows his power and defeat the Devil through this debate. The event happened at Cabaguio Davao City and it has been well attended by faithfuls from different Parishes all over Davao and even from Cebu. Roughly 200 people witnessed the debate with the majority from Catholics. Converted Pastor Bro. Noe Dora did a testimony in between the debate, and he really moved the Baptist faithfuls including Pastor Bernardo with his conversion experiences. Rev. Fr. Jorge S. Angga also testifies after the debate about the Catholic Faith, encourages the Catholic Faithfuls to stand firm in their faith. The Devil really hates the Sacraments, so he was trying to oppose that the Sacraments is not a teaching from Christ, but through Bro. RJ Seno who has been an instrument to defend the Catholic doctrines the Devil was defeated. The video will tell you the whole thing.
“I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Luke 10:18
This is the full length of the debate.

Ang kaibhan sa mga naakay na mga Katoliko sa pagiging Protestante at sa mga Protestante na naakay sa pagiging katoliko ay, naakay ang mga katoliko sa Protestantesmo dahil hindi nila alam ang mga kasagutang katoliko. Samantalang kung ang isang Protestante na naaakay sa pagiging Katoliko, ay alam nila kung ano talaga ang mga kasagutang katoliko. Of course hindi naman lahat.
Dahil, kung saang lugar na mahihina ang katoliko, dadami ang mga hindi katoliko. Pero, sa mga lugar na strong sa pananampalataya ang mga katoliko, hindi makaakay ng myembro ang mga hindi katoliko.
Sa ibang mga salita, magtatagumpay ang mga hindi katoliko sa mga lugar na maraming mga katoliko ang gutom sa mga kasagutang katoliko.
Ito ang patunay sa mga salitang iyan: (mga salita mula sa mga hindi katoliko na ngayon mga katoliko na),,, panoorin ang video na ito >>>https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=4148456827983&set=vb.1180682787&type=3&theater

Article Title: Renewal of Christian Vows
Columnist: Cleb B. Calimutan
April 17, 2012
The Christian vow starts at baptism when the person recites the creed which is traditionally taught among the catechumens during the passion. This creed was the password among the early Christians and was created by the apostles immediately after the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Pentecost Day. Henceforth, the creed is pronounced by the candidates for baptism in Catholic Church for in this way that an assurance of the unity of faith with the disciples of Jesus is ascertain.
The practice of the baptism of the catechumens among the early Christians took place on the last day of the triduum: the night of the Easter vigil and so together with the faithful the entire assembly also renew their baptismal vows as a Christian to remain sincere in the spirit of apostolic virtues received from Christ.
St. Paul wrote to Titus to renew the Holy Spirit for in this way that a believer somehow regain the strength and passion of serving the Lord and become always a living witness to the Gospel. The renewal of the Christian vow is not a new thing to do but a new way approaching the Christian challenges that arose along with our different neighbours in this world with different outlooks in life.
Presently most of the Baptised Catholics are infants whose faith is represented by the parents. Now as they grow old they can readily stand the vow of being a Catholic Christian and understand what it means to be a follower of Christ in the midst of this fast growing modernization.
The messages of Pope Benedict XVI for the past Lenten celebration echo for the whole year, he strongly said: “We must not remain silent before evil.” People now these days are so cold to stand for the truth, most of the Christians are trying to avoid trouble, that could be good, but to allow evil to flourish is not good for the self and to the entire society. People are afraid to stand for the faith they seemed have forgotten their vow of baptism to remain strong with the Incarnate God.
Further the Pope said, “Let us be concerned for each other, to stir a response in love and good works” the three virtues of Christ the, priestly, kingly, and prophetic virtues are so alive with the message of the Holy Father. To be concerned with each other in the name of love embodies the love of neighbour the very agape mandated by the Lord to His disciples. This is the Love of God hence loving our neighbour reflects with the love of God that we have. This priestly virtue is manifested in our participation with the Sacraments and Church Liturgies; a definite priestly function. Love of neighbour is the essence of being a king in the fashion of Jesus and not of this world. A form of service with deep concern for everybody as the image of God’s love – Jesus is seen especially among the least of our brethren: the poorest of the poor. However, to be concern with our neighbour is to bring them to the truth, thus the prophetic virtue is inseparable with the two virtues of baptism.
Few, only are reminded to live this virtues receive in the Sacrament of baptism hence the Christian vow is necessary to bring back the energy as believers of Jesus. That we are called to follow the same path he took and live the same principles that he got two thousand years ago. Philippines is the threshold of Christianity in easy, we are but a beacon of light that glimmers our neighbouring countries, that they may see the joy of being a Christian. But, what can we say more we cannot even live these things in our actions.

Article Title: The People must know
Columnist: Cleb B. Calimutan
In a survey made it appears that sixty nine percent (69%) of the Filipinos agreed the use of artificial contraception, twenty four percent (24%) are not sure and only seven percent (7%) of the Filipinos have the same conservative position with the Catholic Church which remains very strong to go against the artificial contraception. This is because the Church knows something that the people do not specially on the moral side of family planning. In the Humanae vitae of Pope Paul VI the Church constantly says that artificial contraception is wrong. Contraception is “any action which, either in anticipation of the conjugal act [sexual intercourse], or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible” (Birth Control, Catholic Answers). Before 1930 the Protestant goes with the mind with the Catholic Church, but on the Lambeth conference the Anglican was pressured and started to sway their position now the Catholic Church is the only largest institution opposing artificial contraception.
Why the Church says contraception is wrong? Primarily, since it defeats the purpose of sex which is designed by God for procreation and not an end of the act. It is a blessing from God intended to create a new life in the bond of matrimony, there must be love and respect, and not for self gratification only. The people must know this thing to have a good view of life and love in the family.
If the Filipino couple are given the change to choose between natural and artificial they would prefer the artificial one, for it is convenient and easy. Unlike the natural method that it takes time for them to know with great accuracy, they need to be educated in the holistic aspect of family planning. And since most of the Filipino are not oriented with the importance of the natural family planning they would choose the artificial method. But I do believe that if they only know the reality of both the natural and the artificial they would choose probably choose the natural one.
It remains that education is the best solution of problems, for in it that there is awareness that inclines proper decision making. The people who knows what is right from wrong are those who can discriminate them properly and as a Christian country it is deemed that everybody must get involved in proclaiming the truth and what is the best for the people; since this is not only a problem of a few but for all of us, knowing the truth makes a difference thus Jesus said, “the truth shall set us free.”

Article Title: The Condom Condemnation
Columnist: Cleb B. Calimutan
Date: November 10, 2010
Some parts of the world are rejoicing including the pro RH Bill passed in the Philippine congress, for just one reason that seems to be the most awaited and the most exciting when the Pope said, “condom is okay?” I think it’s a big “No way” specially to the pro lifers. The Church never changed her position against artificial contraception. However I deemed it necessary to clarify some point of view for the sake of the concerned readers.
Concerning the Papal opinion; the Pope is infallible when he speaks “ex cathedra” as the supreme pastor of the Roman Catholic Church and defines a doctrine concerning faith and morals. Any opinion that he may express without the necessary condition of his infallibility is not binding. The Church remains a pro lifer the Pope did not intend to change the stand of the Church for a long time regarding artificial contraception which is never suggested as an option to be used by the couple that plans a good family.
Nonetheless the Church would deal things on a case to case basis for it is the whole person that is the most concern of the issue. The best example is abortion that which the Church never allows however if the baby inside is dangerous most specially to both the life of Mother and the baby that none of the two may survive if pregnancy continues then this indirect abortion is allowed in this very extraordinary case, however the Pope was implying something very different of what the anti lifers had construed. The pope was interviewed by Peter Seewald that can be read in the “light of the World” a book length interview of Pope Benedict XVI of which when he was ask concerning the issue of the fight against the banalization of sexuality, that sex must be an expression of love within the context of marriage the Pope made the following statement:
“There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility, on the way toward recovering an awareness that not everything is allowed and that one cannot do whatever one wants. But it is not really the way to deal with the evil of HIV infection. That can really lie only in a humanization of sexuality.
” Are you saying, then, that the Catholic Church is actually not opposed in principle to the use of condoms?
“She of course does not regard it as a real or moral solution, but, in this or that case, there can be nonetheless, in the intention of reducing the risk of infection, a first step in a movement toward a different way, a more human way, of living sexuality.”
The emphasis of the Pope is the case of a “male Prostitute who is going to use a condom” this is not about sexuality within marriage, this is about the male prostitute starting to be awaken from his promiscuous condition whereby he is transmitting the deadly virus and as his first step of moral sense he is going to use a condom. The Pope did not suggest that the male prostitute must wear a condom, but, if and only a male prostitute uses a condom, there is then the first step of moral sense in him. The Pope did not made a suggestion that condom is a prevention of AIDs nor it is commendable for family planning it is not in the mind of the Pope and the whole Catholic magisterium it is only in the mind of those who are anti life that looks anything they can make use to promote their evil cause.
In the fight against Aids the Catholic Church recommends abstinence and among any institution all over the world the Catholic Church champions in this field without much ado. In some other parts of the book it is said, “I had the chance to visit one of these wards and to speak with the patients. That was the real answer: The Church does more than anyone else, because she does not speak from the tribunal of the newspapers, but helps her brothers and sisters where they are actually suffering. In my remarks I was not making a general statement about the condom issue, but merely said, and this is what caused such great offense, that we cannot solve the problem by distributing condoms. Much more needs to be done. We must stand close to the people, we must guide and help them; and we must do this both before and after they contract the disease.” (An excerpt from Light of the World, Peter Seewald’s book-length interview with Pope Benedict XVI From Chapter 11, “The Journeys of a Shepherd,” pages 117-119: excerpted by Dr. Janet E. Smith).
The Church upholds the truth and love, she never changes her principles as easy as what the other people are thinking, the Holy Spirit abides the Church and safe guarding her least she fall into error. Concerning the fight against artificial contraception that is because the Church consider all aspects of human life, the natural method is open for pregnancy, open for life, but the artificial one is not open for pregnancy it is anti life. Moreover the Catholic Church upholds the dignity of all, the Husband the wife and the life inside the womb of the mother, insuring that whatever measure the couple should take, the baby, unexpected maybe, is safe and its possibility is welcomed by the couple. The Church reflects Gods justice and love, let’s think straight always and together.

At 12:33 begins this dialogue:
Word for Word:
***Matt Slick: I have authority
Robert Sungenis: Yeah? Where’d you get it?
Slick: From Jesus.
Sungenis: Did He talk to you or something?
Slick: (laughs) Actually, He, uh…let’s just say He manifested Himself to me while I was, um, um, receiving Him, and He actually came in His presence.
Sungenis: Can you prove that to me?
Slick: Why would I have to prove it to you?
Sungenis: If I’m going to believe what you say Matt I need some proof that Jesus gave you the authority.
***Slick: I didn’t say he gave me the, um, authority.

On August 19-20, 2011, Robert Sungenis, a Catholic theologian from Catholic Apologetics International engaged in a religious debate on Bible Authority with David Hester, preacher at Springville Road church of Christ. Sungenis contended the Roman Catholic magisterium, the Bible and Apostolic Tradition constitute the authorities for Christian faith and practice. While Hester affirmed the Bible as the exclusive standard of authority for Christian faith and practice.
