Apologetics Forum Rules
If you make a claim regarding any of the teachings of the Catholic Church, you will be required to provide documentation. For instance, if you claim that Catholics worship Mary the Mother of Our Lord as a goddess or deity, you must document from official Catholic sources that the Catholic Church teaches that Mary is a goddess or deity. If you make unsubstantiated claims of that nature and refuse to retract, then you are engaging in false witness and your posts may be deleted from any such thread at the discretion of the moderators.
Deliberate and vicious lies against the Catholic Church will be removed. If you continue to post such lies, you will be placed on post moderation.
Blasphemy against Christ's Holy Catholic Church will not be tolerated.
If you are having an issue with another poster (being taunted, ad hom attack, etc.) do not respond in kind to them. Use the Report Post Button.
If you choose to challenge someone on their knowledge of theology and religion, then be prepared to engage them in that topic.
If someone asks for documentation, be ready to provide it.
Don't create a post and run away from it. If you do that consistently, you will be removed from this forum..
Any c&p quotes not accompanied by a link, if available, or proper credit to the author, will be deleted. If you are caught plagiarizing, your posts will be deleted. Please observe internet copyright laws.
You may not troll this site or this forum for the purpose of c&p'ing our posts to other sites. If you are caught, you will be banned.
Catholics use a complete Bible and they will use it in debating non-Catholics.
Anyone who insists that Catholics use only mutilated versions of Holy Writ in their responses will be expected to supply the documentation and authority upon which they rely that the Deuterocanonicals are not the inspired word of God, and why they accept that authority. If your answer is "the Holy Spirit", then you will still be required to prove your answer with historical documentation.
If you make any claim as to how the early Christians worshiped and believed and taught, then you must document your claims from the writings of the Early Church Fathers or some other acceptable source. Anti-Catholic sites and opinions don't count.
If you insist that Catholics must prove the teachings of the Catholic Church from Scripture alone, then be prepared to first prove that the Bible is our only infallible source and rule of faith and practice.
