For over 30 years, Mike Gendron was a devout Roman Catholic and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church. He followed the priests, the sacraments and was depending upon his own good works for salvation. However, in 1981, after attending an apologetics seminar called, 'Evidence for the Christian Faith' the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. As he searched the Scriptures he was amazed to see how often the Bible contradicts the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. Mike placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. He founded a ministry, Proclaiming the Gospel, that points people to Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior.

Recently, the Catholic Church canonized Popes John XXIII and John Paul II. What exactly does this mean?

Within Roman Catholicism, canonization is a decree that establishes the public veneration of an individual whose holy life makes the person worthy of God's special love. This decree is universal and obligatory for all Roman Catholics which means that members are to venerate those individuals who are now deemed as being saints by the church.

In order to qualify, a person must be deceased for 5 years and the church must find two miracles associated with the potential saint.

On this Crosstalk broadcast you'll also learn:
--Why Peter can't be the first Pope.
--Why the concept of popes is in violation of Scripture.
--Why anyone baptized into Christ is a saint.
--How we know God never instituted the papacy.
