A Note to my Readers.

Catholic apologist Mario Derksen has been forced to close down his Catholic Insight web page for a second time, due to an act of ecclesiastical censorship by his Catholic superiors (at the seminary he is attending). As a result, all links to rebuttals on his site are no longer functional. While I may disagree with Mario on many points of Catholic teaching, I defend his right to publicly respond to my essays. So with Mario's permission, I have re-posted his rebuttals on my site, so that his view may still be heard.

It is NOT really my intent to offend anyone, but rather to present the light of truth from scripture, something that can be hard to find in even the main-line churches today. Yet, even Jesus found that presenting the truth offended some. I guess it cannot be avoided. So if you are offended, or feel that what I have posted is in error, then please write me and explain in some detail where you feel I have erred. I am willing to consider your point of view.

Prov 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law 
is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:
