1 – How do you get the Trinity out of Mark 12:32 which says, “And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that [God] is one, and there is no other but he”?
2 – Can you explain how indulgences work and how Catholics understand Purgatory?
3 – After talking about eating his flesh, what does Jesus mean in John 6 when he says, “the flesh profits nothing”?
4 – In the Old Testament it says males are circumcized but not females. What happened to the females?
5 – What part of the Waldensians did the Catholic Church consider heretical? How were they like and dislike the Franciscans?
6 – I want to be confirmed and come into the Catholic Church. Does my wife have to have to come with me and have our marriage blessed for me to be a Catholic?
7 – How do Catholics explain their view of saints in heaven when the Bible refers to saints here on earth?
8 – Why is the Catholic Church full of man made rituals?
