There never seems to be enough time; I’ve been working long hours with nothing left over at the end of the day. So lots of things have gotten short shrift the last few weeks. All the more reason to have a ready defense and explanation for the Faith especially for those too busy to listen.
With that, I give you 10 more Joe Six-Pack Answers: short, sweet, and to the point.
- If God could appear to us as any thing, why does he come to us as bread in the Eucharist? So we’ll eat it. If our first parents, Adam and Eve, died as a result of eating the wrong thing, Jesus promises us we’ll live by eating the right thing: Him.
- If God is never lonely, why did he create us? Because He thought we’d like it.
- If God is all-loving, why does he allow some people to go to Hell? Because we’re not robots. God wants us to love Him, but that love has to be a free choice. In order for there to be a free choice, there has to be the possibility of not choosing God. That’s what Hell is: the torment of being apart from God forever and knowing that you chose it.
- How can being Catholic be any good when you’re so bad / mean / hypocritical? Imagine how bad I’d be if I wasn’t Catholic.
