I encourage you to read Matthew 12:22-37, because that's exactly what they are doing.
Just look at the fruits of the lives of Catholic saints; so much more humble, so much more joyful, so much more peaceful. Rage is not a fruit of the Spirit.
Who would you rather be with for the rest of eternity:
Blessed Pier-Giorgio Frassati? He had more holiness in the tip of his little finger than this guy has in his whole body. Think of it this way:
- If this guy is bringing fear and scrupulosity into your life instead of peace and joy, who do you think is the source of this?
<It's not God!>
Any form of coercion or force or fear in this regard is not of God.
- Who successfully casts out demons nowadays?
Everyone knows where you go for this. It's not to this guy. Check out the stories at:
and they will edify you. While you're at it, they are having an online deliverance session this coming Monday night that may give you some experiential confidence in the Catholic faith (perhaps it might help with your scrupulosity). I attended one almost a year ago and it did miracles for me. If a Catholic priest can give me unparalleled peace, joy, and trust in God by his prayers then "the kingdom of God has come among you today".
Another resource you may find edifying is the book "Saints Who Battled Satan" by Paul Thigpen. Reading the lives of the saints would also be helpful.
Finally, you haven't cited any evidence from this guy that refutes the Catholic faith, only an assertion that it's miracles are false.
- What evidence is there for this, other than his own opinion?
I will note that the Catholic Church has been working signs and wonders for 2,000 years. I'm not sure what you're referring to in 2nd Corinthians — I can't immediately locate anything to this effect – but:
- If he's talking about the end times as I suspect he is, how is it that the end times is lasting 2,000 years?
The end times are supposed to be brief, but there is no way you can make it cover the period of time we've been working signs and wonders.
With regard to the Church altering Early Church documents in favor of Catholicism, this is just a brazen attempt to misdirect from the truth. This undercuts their own church, because the New Testament canon did not solidify until the 4th century.
- If the Church was altering earlier documents, what does that say about the trustworthiness of the canon that they prize so dearly?
And if this is true, where was the "true Church" that Christ founded against which He said: "The Gates of Hell will not prevail" (Matthew 16:18)?
Jesus said, "Behold, I am with you always, to the close of the age." (Matthew 28:20)
It's simply not plausible that Christ's Church fizzled out in corrupted doctrine and documents in the first century or two, then was miraculously revived in the 16th century to remain strong for five more centuries.
On top of this, even secular scholars have validated the documents that affirm and uphold the Catholic faith from the early centuries. There are enough atheistic scholars out there that would love it to be true, but this theory has not survived the test of time.
It would help us out if you gave us some more specific references and arguments against the Catholic faith, perhaps a link to a video and (a chapter and verse) in Second Corinthians. What I am hearing now makes it sound like the emperor has no clothes: All bluster and no substance.
- Anyone can say the Church is Satanic, but where is the evidence?
