Want to get more out of Mass? Many people think Mass is too boring, so much so that some leave the Catholic Church for the more upbeat, “relevant” Protestant services. Is the problem really the Mass or is it us? Find out in this new episode of “Keep Your Family Catholic.” You’ll learn: The one major difference between Protestant and Catholic worship. The problem with always wanting to be entertained. Whether the Mass should keep up with the times. What to do if you find Mass boring.
Catholics – that is, true Catholics, are constantly bombarded and persecuted by the culture’s version of love. The popularized slogan “love is love” really means, “if you are a loving person, you must accept what any person deems as love–even if that runs contrary to your beliefs and morals.” Contraception, spouse trading, pedophilia, same-sex acts, no-fault divorce, sex-changes, pornography, polygamy, abortion, and adultery are just some of the ways that our culture proposes love. What is the Christian response? When responding to our culture’s claims that love is love many Catholics are gravely disadvantaged, feel helplessly ignorant, and because of this cave into the world’s maxims. Is there a simple, reasonable, theological response that dispels the lies of every sexual moral heresy and proclaims true love and the way to live it? The answer is yes, and the Catholic Church has it. Listen now to Devin Schadt and Judah Kennedy as they provide the antidote to every moral sexual heresy.
Religion has been defined as the means by which human beings attempt to “reach” God and make God knowable. In an attempt to accomplish this man has offered many solutions to the problem of religion. Being that each religion maintains and proclaims different and varied tenants of belief–often opposing each other–there are only three scenarios: first, all religions are correct (which cannot be true); all are religions are incorrect (which may be true) or there is one religion that is correct, and all others are incorrect. In this episode Do Catholics Know God? Devin Schadt and Judah Kennedy briefly review the differences in many major religions (Judaism, Islam, Mormonism, Jehovah Witnesses and more) and why Catholicism is the only right religion among them, and the implications of being Catholic or a non-Catholic. You don’t want to miss this.
God won’t deny me heaven… I am not evil…I’m actually a pretty good person. It doesn’t matter what religion you identify with, or if you identify with any religion at all–what matters is that you are a good person. Ideas like these are nearly universally accepted, even among devout Christians. But what if the idea of “being good” as the standard of one’s salvation is actually bad? But could this idea be thwarting the initiative to save sols. In Just Have to Be a Good Person to Get to Heaven, Devin Schadt and Judah Kennedy discuss five reasons why the idea of “being a good person” is illogical and refutes itself.
Zero sum thinking, also called zero sum fallacy assumes that there is a fixed amount of “X’ and when two parties desire “X,” one person’s gain will become another person’s loss. In Don’t Fall for Zero, Devin Schadt and Judah Kennedy discuss questions like: How do Christians apply the zero-sum fallacy to God, Mary, and the saints? Is praying to the saints stealing honor from God? Is the veneration of saints an act of idolatry that robs God of His glory? What does zero sum thinking say about God and how does it affect our relationship with God? In this episode Devin and Judah answer these questions and much more.
Addicted to work...resent work...fear work....in this episode, Work Like St. Joseph Part 2, Devin explains how the goodness of work can work against us, the proper understanding of work, and three ways to make work work for you; and whether government handouts are a viable option for upholding the dignity of man.

What stops us from allowing God’s power to be manifest in and through us? Sin -right? Not exactly. Sin is a problem–nut not THE problem.

Episode 8: Wanting More

Episode 8: Wanting More

2021-08-1011:301

We all want more. More money, more time, more success, more prestige, more pleasure, more fun, more friends, fans, and followers… we all want more. But often the more we want the less we have. Why do we often lose what we worked so hard for? How do we get more? We are commanded to be generous, to give, and help others. But often we become fearful that if we give, we will have less. We are tempted to believe that having more is achieved by giving less–by holding on tightly to what we have. The devil conditions us to believe that giving more we will have less, that we will suffer less if we have more, and the more we have the less we will need. But what if that is a lie? In The Catholic Father Episode 8, Wanting More, I focus on a certain individual who believed these things and his belief determined his fatal destiny. By looking at his example we will discover the secret to obtaining more of what we really need and what we truly desire. Discover how to conquer your fear of losing what you have and to have and be more than you ever imagined. Below is a great resource that can help you conquer the fear of losing what you have and discovering the freedom to become more: InterFEARence: The One Thing That Is Limiting You… And How to Conquer It – Book https://fathersofstjoseph.org/product/interfearence-the-one-thing-that-is-limiting-you-and-how-to-conquer-it/
