The Catholic Defender: Contending For The Faith

Posted by John Benko - June 14th, 2013

The following is a debate that took place today on my Facebook page and I thought it was worth sharing.  I remove the last name of Skip purposely to protect his identity.  Skip is the anti-Catholic.

Skip And Don, I love you brother but I am not going to argue a truth on the radio. i am not about such things, I know you are and always have been. When you find that arguing is not the way of God, and that defending a church and setting all your eggs in the Catholic basket instead of with Jesus Christ then we can talk. Until then you are just making noise. Know Christ and make him known.

Donald Hartley Not at all, of the Pope, Jesus said, “And so you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven.

Donald Hartley
I wouldn’t debate on the radio either if I knew I had to be accountable for the accusations I make?

Skip Let us look at that scripture.

Donald Hartley Skip, Dave Hunt? Really? What did you do, just google this? (Skip had posted an anti-Catholic video from Dave Hunt.  A well know anti-Catholic who has been disproved)

Skip shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Skip Seems you are saying God built his church on Satan.

Skip  “for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.” And that is the Catholic church

Donald Hartley Skip, the actual verse reads, “”Then he strictly ordered his disciples to tell no one that he was the Messiah”, Jesus says the same thing in Matthew 17:9, what does Jesus say? “Until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”

Donald Hartley St . Peter was thinking as a man would and not God, it was all about going to Jerusalem! Consider Luke 22:31, “Simon, Simon, behold Satan has demanded to sift all of you like wheat, but I have prayed that your own faith may not fail; and once you have turned back, you must strengthen your brothers”. Skip, this is exactly what happens. I consider it very important that if Jesus prays for somebody, that is huge!

Skip  No, I am sorry but that is not what is says. You can take that translation that is not accepted by the christian world, fact is it is not accurate.

Donald Hartley It most certainly does, Skip, you must have a very faulty bible?

Skip You’re Not in the Driver’s Seat

21-22 Then Jesus made it clear to his disciples that it was now necessary for him to go to Jerusalem, submit to an ordeal of suffering at the hands of the religious leaders, be killed, and then on the third day be raised up alive. Peter took him in hand, protesting, “Impossible, Master! That can never be!”

23 But Jesus didn’t swerve. “Peter, get out of my way. Satan, get lost. You have no idea how God works.”

Skip Waters Jesus Predicts His Death

21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.

22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”

23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”

Skip Seems you don’t know what you are talking about again

Donald Hartley Jesus said, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men.” This was all about Jerusalem.

Skip You better go say a few rosaries and get back to me.

Donald Hartley Skip, your making accusations and not reading the responses, I am more than answering your attacks, your not listening but copying and pasting.  Concerning the Rosary, gladly, and I will remember!

Skip  No, it was about Peter. Peter was in error then and many times in the bible. In fact not until Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit when he was babtized in the Holy spriit did he lose his silly thoughts and his trying to draw attention to himself.

Skip These are not attacks, they are facts. You have been taught lies, it is hard for you to face the truth.

Donald Hartley Actually, Jesus said what Jesus said: St . Peter was thinking as a man would and not God, it was all about going to Jerusalem! Consider Luke 22:31, “Simon, Simon, behold Satan has demanded to sift all of you like wheat, but I have prayed that your own faith may not fail; and once you have turned back, you must strengthen your brothers”. Skip, this is exactly what happens. I consider it very important that if Jesus prays for somebody, that is huge!

Skip The truth is the truth no matter if you believe it or not. A lie is a lie no matter if you and a whole lot of other people believe it to be the truth.

Skip Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection

21 From that time Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. 22 And Peter took him and began to rebuke him, saying, “God forbid, Lord! This shall never happen to you.” 23 But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance[e] to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men.”

Donald Hartley What are you trying to say Skip, Catholics certainly recognize that it was Jerusalem that Jesus was going to, and nobody is disputing the Holy Spirit coming upon the Apostles and the Church on Pentecost. Those are not lies nor are we calling them lies. It is absurd that you would say that.

Donald Hartley Skip, your making your own punching bag so you can kick it, but that is not the Catholic Church.

Skip Not a word about Jerusalem, he was talking directly to Peter and Peters lack of knowledge. Of course if ole Peter would of just read the old testement he would of known what was going to happen, that is if he would of been able to see it.

Donald Hartley  Skip, just looking back, you yourself quote scripture saying that it was infact concerning Jerusalem that Peter resisted and Jesus calls Peter “Satan”! Plus your forgetting John 21:15-19, or is this not in your new bible?

Donald Hartley St. Peter did come around to see it, he would be crucified upside down for it.

Skip I thought you said that was the scripture where the catholics say their chruch came from? The “rock” was the fact that Jesus was the Christ. Not SImon.

Skip He also denied Christ three times.

Donald Hartley Matthew 16:18 Jesus changes Simon, Son of Bar-Jona to “Kepa“, rock
about an hour ago ·

Donald Hartley Jesus gives the keys to Peter at the Ascension of Jesus, that is the birth of the Papacy.

Donald Hartley Skip, we know that Peter denied Jesus Three times, that is why Jesus asked him three times if he loved Jesus.

Donald Hartley What was Jesus response to Peter? FEED MY SHEEP! What is the responsibility of the sheep? To follow after the voice of the shephard!

Donald Hartley Your attack on Peter does not take Peter out of his foundation Skip.

Donald Hartley 16:17 Jesus said to him in reply, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood * has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. 16:18 And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, * and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
16:19 I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven. * Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

YOU are blessed.
YOU did not receive this knowledge by flesh and blood (your own efforts)
My Father has revealed this to YOU.
YOU are the Rock.
YOU will be given the keys to the kingdom of heaven.
What YOU bind on earth will be bound in heaven.
What YOU loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Jesus, seven times, emphasized that Peter is the subject that connects the whole discourse together. Not only that but, one by one, ratifies the doctrines that define the Catholic Papacy.

By saying YOU are blessed, He ascribes that Peter’s office is set apart with a special blessing. By saying that Peter received knowledge directly from God, not men, He validates the Divine inspiration of the office. By calling Peter the Rock upon which He would build, He declares Peter the earthly cornerstone of the Church. By giving Him the keys, He declared that God’s plan of salvation must necessarily pass through His Catholic Church. Finally, by giving Peter the power to bind and loose on HIS behalf, Jesus declares the infallible teaching authority of the Church.

How anyone could read Matthew 16 and deny the authority of the Catholic Church is impossible for me to imagine.

For the first 1500 years of the Church, no one disputed that Peter was the Rock.

Caroline  @Skip - How much do you get paid to preach lies at your ” church ” , PREACHER ???

Caroline I can see you are your own PREACHER ???

Skip  I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel I preached is not of human origin. 12I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.

Donald Hartley Quoting St Paul gets you no where here Skip, in fact what does St. Paul do after his conversion? He is lead into Damascus blind until a Catholic Priest finds him (Ananias) and is baptized. The scales fell from his eyes just like I hope they will yours some day!

Margie  So Skip, please show me where your Pope, Dave Hunt falls in this Apostolic line

Margie  Yes, Donald, he was the fourth Pope, Sts. Cyril and Methodius recovered his body from the sea. I was at the 3rd Century Basilica where his remains are.

Donald Hartley I asked Skip to provide anyone in his church a representative anywhere, he could not do it.

Donald Hartley Skip, we do not separate Jesus Christ from his Church! Debating the truth, defending the truth is what we are instructed to do when it is necessary to do so! St. Jude said, “I now feel a need to write to encourage you to contend for the faith that was once for all handed down to the holy ones.” Skip, the faith that was handed on through the holy ones is the Catholic Church. It can’t be any more clear than this.

Catholics on Facebook have been having Anti-Catholics like John J Farina and Skip running around trying to get Catholics to abandon the Catholic Faith.  What happens when you respond with the truth.  They have no place to run.  It is important that we do “contend for the faith” when we are challenged.  This was a small taste but it provides an opportunity.

My encouragement is to remain faithful to the Catholic Church because it is the one true Church that Jesus personally founded.  Notice how silent Skip became in this debate? Revelation 8:3-6 states, “Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a gold censer. He was given a great quantity of incense to offer, along with the prayers of all the holy ones, on the gold altar that was before the throne. The smoke of the incense along with the prayers of the holy ones went up before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with burning coals from the altar, and hurled it down to the earth. There were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake”! Just as Isaiah was cleansed with an ember (Isaiah 6:5-7) so is the Catholic Church through the prayer of the Saints. This video I dedicate for Skip and John J Farina!

What did we learn from the Peanut Gallery tonight?

1. They love Sola Scriptura.
2. Some of them have left the Catholic Faith.
3. The call sacred objects “Graven Images”.
4. They believe in the Rapture Trap.
5. They love Jack Chick.
6. The call the Eucharist the “death cookie and wafer”.
7. Catholics are not saved?
8. Catholics pay for a Mass card?
9. Popery began in the 4th century.
10. the Catholic Church is a doctrine of demons, a bad cult.
11. The toilet Paper crew
12. Catholics killed 50 million people.
13. Catholics were founded by Masons.
14. Jesuits are evil.

These are the basic points of tonight’s peanut gallery. I want to thank those who participated. Of the 14 points I pulled out, only one of them is basically true. That is number 11, John J. Farina and his group (by their own admission) are openly the Toilet Paper Crew!

Arlene Michelle Hey Johnny…there’s an OLPH church just around the block…come on – meet me tonight and we’ll TP the Mary statue out front! (iI’ve always wanted to do that…as well as knock that Dagon hat off the Poop…).  I respond to this in my article for this show.

The truth of the matter is that the Catholic Church is the one true Church founded by Jesus Christ and commissioned by Christ to go to all the nations. 

Just a few thoughts: We did not “praise the pope and cardinal history”.  We asked the first 32 Popes to pray for us as a litany of saints.  That was very unique which I had never seen before.  This was good.  Then I gave some interesting facts concerning some of the foundations in the Church that they instituted.

We shared a lot of scripture, all based from the Old and New Testaments.  Anyone who listens in will be able to see this.  Yes, we do not believe in Sola Scriptura.  This is a man made development which began with Martin Luther.  Only the Catholic Faith has the foundation as it is the “pillar of fire, pillar of truth”.

As Catholics we believe in the Ten Commandments, Martin Luther split the first Commandment into two and that is why they oppose statues.  Protestants mistranslated Exodus 20:4 causing much confusion.  In fact, God instructs Moses to place angels on the Arc of the Covenant in Exodus 25.  In fact we show that God reinforces the use of statues (1 Kings 9:1-3).

The Rapture is a man made development beginning in Holland in the 1830-40s by the Ana-baptist there.  It is based from a dream of a little girl, something that has no bases in the scripture or the apostolic tradition.  In other words, nobody knew about this rapture before then.  it did not nor does it ever exist (Gal 1:6-9).

Jack Chick has already be shown to be based in lies in regards to the Catholic Faith (Christianity Today).  People will believe anything they hear against the Church without much investigation, if any.  All you have to do is Google things anti-Catholic and there you have it.  They simply continue to pass around such myths, misconceptions, forgeries, and outright lies.

The Eucharist is not a “death cookie” but rather “The Bread of Life”.  To deny the Eucharist is to deny Jesus Christ.  Unless you receive the Eucharist, Jesus said, “This is the bread that came down from heaven.  Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

Catholics are saved as they are on journey.  The real issue is that we do not believe in the false man made doctrine, “Once Saved Always Saved”.  This is another development of the Protestant Reformation.  Christians can loose their salvation if they choose to turn away from the Faith.  It is important that they come back (James 5:19-20).

I’ve been a Catholic for more than 50 years, been all over the world, know hundreds of priests, I guess I am in the dark about a “Catholic card”? I’m not sure what this is.  We Catholics do have a calling card, we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses so heaven is right here with us.  Jesus Christ is the Mediator between God and man, this is our calling card.

The Papacy was founded by Jesus Christ, by the 4th century there were 32 Popes who were already in the history of the Church.  St. Sylvester I was the Pope when Constantine came on the scene.  In fact, this was the litany we used in the show.

The Pharisees from Jerusalem said that Jesus “is possessed by Beelzebub (Satan) and By the prince of demons he drives out demons.”  Why should we be surprised that they will say the same thing about Jesus Christ’s Church? Jesus said, “Remember the word I spoke to you, No slave is greater than his master.  If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.” John 15:20

The Catholic Church did not kill 50,000,000 people, the most you can say that were killed by the Inquisition in a 600 year time period is between 5,000-6,000.  It was not the Catholic Authority who put these to death, it was the civil authority who was acting on the laws of the time.  With the fall of Rome the gospel became the foundation of law throughout Europe.  Heresy was against the law.  One thing the anti-Catholics will not tell you, 9 out of every 10 people brought before a Tribunal were acquitted

As a side note, Pope Innocent was not the one who launched the inquisition.  The inquisition began with King Ferdinand II (1231) of Italy who was going after those who were threatening the throne.  What the Pope did was in 1232 created the tribunal to protect those being accused of heresy.  Giving the accused to have a voice, to give them a chance to explain themselves and face their accusers, and to be forgiven.  Were there abuses, sure there were, but over all, it helped save Europe.  What anti-Catholics include in their high numbers is the result of the Black Plague, Starvation, disease.  

The Catholic faith was founded by Christ, the Masons are not part of the Church.  It is a grave sin to be part of the Masons.  Recently, a priest was defrocked after learning of his involvement with the masons.  Jesus was not a mason.

The Jesuits were founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola who did many great things in proclaiming the gospel in the far east and in the New Americas.  They were the strong right arm of the Church for a long time.  They are not evil, they are one of the religious orders in the Church.  Today, there might be problems as some of them have rooted themselves in “liberation theology” in South America.  They were chastised by Pope John Paul II when he was there.  

Again, these are small nuggets, I want to thank the peanut gallery for their participation. 

Here is the show in case you missed it.

The Catholic Defender: John J Farina Who?

Posted by John Benko - June 11th, 2013

On Tuesday evening at 7:00 Eastern, 6:00 Central, the Ross and Margie show,The Catholic Roundtable” will respond to the anti-Catholic attacks of John J Farina.

Listen to the show here live:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/deeper-truth/2013/06/11/pray-and-fast-for-john-j-farina

Apparently, Mr. Farina loves to proclaim falsehoods about the Catholic Church, yet he refuses open debate with informed Catholics.

He preys upon the ignorance of people and this is a very sad thing. This is probably the most important tactic utilized by anti-Catholics because they do not like to be held to the truth.

They are infamously known for using the “scatter-gun technique” which is their means to not addressing an issue at hand. To simply keep throwing out their falsehoods trying to keep you busy. They can not nor will not stand on an issue.

Mr. Farina is a stark contrast to what Deepertruth have done in the past. We sought to give the Anti-Catholic every opportunity to raise a debate; we have had neutral participants who acted as referees in our debates, we made sure that each person was able to bring their points and counter points, they were afforded the ability to respond equally.

 I want the Anti-Catholic to do their best so that when the debate is completed, there is a record for all to see.

When they want to attack using known forgeries, misconceptions, outright lies, we respond to those for all to see. This is why Mr. Farina will not allow informed Catholics to respond on his Facebook page. He loves to go to Catholics sites to pick a fight, but when they fire back he blocks them.

That is not only cowardly, but it is like raising your hands in victory playing before your own crowd. He appeases those who are already disposed to the anti-Catholic attacks as they will lift him up like a true warrior for God. In actuality, he is no more than a fluttering duck, much like a poorly thrown football barely crossing the line of scrimmage.

Lets take a few samples of what he is saying. This first example is just a little earlier today.

“Imagine, little old me will have Catholics praying and fasting for me, and I will be the topic of a Catholic radio show to discuss my ‘errors’……..if you click the link, you will see my full name (I am NOT happy about that, but if it gets Catholics to come to me, fine…..I will deal with it)…….”

Mr. Farina, the object is not to bring to you Catholics so you can eat them up, but rather, to expose your falsehood. The bible says much about those who would strive to lead people away from the Faith.

Consider Deuteronomy 18:20, “But if a prophet presumes to speak in my name an oracle that I have not commanded him to speak, or speaks in the name of other gods, he shall die.”

Catholics, this text ends with this message, “If you say to yourselves, how can we recognize an oracle which the Lord has spoken, know that, even though a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if his oracle is not fulfilled or verified, it is an oracle which the Lord did not speak. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously and you shall have no fear of him.”

Ah, but perhaps Mr. Farina might say that is an Old Testament passage, that means nothing to me. Well, for us Catholics this is important, but for those who might be Mr. Farina fans, let me continue: 

“Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen”

This is a charge for the Catholic Faith, which Christ sent to the nations to Baptize and teach. But with this there is a warning, “There were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will introduce destructive heresies and even deny the Master who ransomed them, bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their licentious ways, and because of them the way of truth will be reviled” (2 Peter 2:1-2).

Here is a statement of Mr Farina, “The Vatican knows this. That’s why is was a death sentence to own a Bible for so long. Yup, burned ALIVE for even owning a Bible. Even today, it’s discouraged. Catholics OWN Bibles, but they don’t READ them.”

In looking at his Facebook page, it is filled with such things and even worse as it is filled with such rhetoric.

Here is what the Catholic Church states concerning the Bible: The Sacred Scriptures contain the Word of God and, since they are inspired, really are the Word of God… This sacred Synod (Vatican II) urges all the Christian faithful to learn by frequent reading of the divine Scriptures the “excelling knowledge of Jesus Christ.” “For ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ.”

Therefore, they should gladly put themselves in touch with the sacred text itself…

And let them remember that prayer should accompany the reading of Sacred Scripture, so that God and man may talk together; for “we speak to him when we pray; we hear him when we read the divine saying: (Second Vatican Council: Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation)

BTW, just going to daily Mass Catholics go through the Bible once every two years, twice every three years with the Sunday/Holy Day Mass. And Catholics are receiving a whole lot of bible. Far more than most if not all other Services.

Was it wrong to hold onto heretic bibles, well, in the word of Mr. Farina, “yep“, the bibles should be burned. Not many people in Protestantism is trying to resurrect those heretical bibles. The Jehovah’s Witnesses today is a good example. What Mr. Farina is confusing is the heresy of false doctrines which was being espoused by the heretics of the 15th century.  There is a difference between civil law and canon law.  Listen in tomorrow night!

Just looking at Mr. Farina’s Facebook page again, there is so many examples so the show tomorrow night will be great.  I am really amazed that anyone of a sound mind could take him seriously?

I do have one more point to raise just to show Mr. Farina’s hatred for the Catholic Faith. The following is an example of a flying duck:

Arlene Michelle Hey Johnny…there’s an OLPH church just around the block…come on – meet me tonight and we’ll TP the Mary statue out front! (iI’ve always wanted to do that…as well as knock that Dagon hat off the Poop…)

What Mr. Farina is in effect doing is vandalism, destruction of private property. But lets play their game for a moment. Dagon was the god of the Philistines, an image of a half man half fish that Sampson destroyed in their Temple. So Mr. Farina considers himself a “Sampson” figure. “The Poop” is a shameful attack on the Pope. This is basically an attack on the use of statues. Mr. Farina falsely accuses Catholics of worshiping statues.

Jack Chick is a notorious liar in his own right.

Christianity Today, a Protestant magazine exposed Chick Comics as being filled with falsehoods.

Alberto Rivera, one of Jack Chick’s characters, claimed to have been ordained a Catholic Priest in Madrid Spain and then sent to Brazil to undermine Protestant churches.

It was discovered that while Rivera claimed to be ordained a Priest, he was actually married with two children in a Protestant seminary in the Caribbean.
It was all a fraud.
