title is “Son”

Made His own self but is considered Son because God the Father came
first

the marriage of Joseph and Mary
the dual-nature of Jesus
the inseparable witnessing of John the Baptist to Jesus and vice-versa

Why is Mary called “Mother of God”

Why is Mary called “Mother of God”
because Jesus is God, therefore His mother, Mary, is “Mother of God”
because God created a woman from the Blessed Trinity to become the
human mother of God The Son
because the Holy Spirit overshadowed her, thus becoming the spouse
of God, therefore worthy of being called a god herself
because Jesus obeyed Mary when she asked Him to change water into
wine in Cana, thus displaying her power over Jesus

Technically, how did Jesus’ passion redeem us?

Technically, how did Jesus’ passion redeem us?
His obedience to The Father (to suffer) undid the disobedience of
Adam and Eve
His blood represented the original blood of Adam and Eve which was
offered to God as atonement
His blood washed away sins to replace the cleansing baptismal waters
of John the Baptist
Since Jesus represented all mankind, we were all crucified with him so
our crucifixion was accepted by The Father

Baptism is

Baptism is
Replaced by circumcision as a sign of being Christian
The sacrament by which the man’s sins – past, current, and future –
are forgiven once and for all
A symbolic gesture in accepting Christ in our life
The ordinary way to partake of Christ’s redemptive passion by
restoring sanctifying grace

Sin makes us lose whatever Baptism gained for us

Sin makes us lose whatever Baptism gained for us
True, because sin breaks our relationship with God
False, because Jesus’s blood saved us once and for

Apostolic Tradition is

Apostolic Tradition is
The customs that the first Christians used which the Church now uses
in its rituals
The prayers that are used in the different sacraments
The teachings of Jesus handed down by the Apostles to us through
bishops throughout the ages
The laws that govern the Church and how it conducts its concerns

The Church cannot ever be wrong in terms of Faith and Morals

The Church cannot ever be wrong in terms of Faith and Morals
True because Jesus told Peter that the gates of hell will never prevail
against her
False because humans took over the Church and they are sinners and
capable of making mistakes

To the Catholic, the sources of Faith are:

To the Catholic, the sources of Faith are:
Scripture only
Scripture, and Sacred Tradition
Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and The Magisterium
The Holy Spirit only

The Church reserves the right to interpret the Bible because

The Church reserves the right to interpret the Bible because
It was the Church that put the Bible together so she should know what
she put in there
Only priests are filled with the Holy Spirit and therefore worthy of
interpreting scripture
The church was put together by Christ therefore she has authority
over anything and everything
Only the Church has the spiritual and historical background to do so

Jesus gave his Apostles the authority to forgive sin

And this authority was a one time thing
And this authority died with them
And this authority was passed on through apostolic succession
And this authority was passed on to all Christians

During the last supper Jesus turned bread into his body and wine into his blood. He then commanded his apostles to do it. Today when priests do this

During the last supper Jesus turned bread into his body and wine into his blood. He then commanded his apostles to do it. Today when priests do this
They simulate the last supper with bread and wine as symbols of
Christ's body and blood
The bread turns to the body of Christ only at the exact
time when it touches the tongue of the communicant, and not a second
after
Only the form of bread remains, but the substance -- what the thing is
-- is really the flesh of Jesus until the form is no more; same with the
wine
The bread and wine remain as bread and wine but we believe it is the
body and blood of Christ

The mass

The mass
Offers a new sacrifice of Christ’s real body and blood to God
Helps us remembers the sacrifice made in Calvary by repeating the last
supper
Renews the exact same sacrifice of Christ in Calvary
Is the same Passover which the Hebrews celebrated in Egypt

When we say we believe in the Communion of Saints, we mean

When we say we believe in the Communion of Saints, we mean
All saints in heaven enjoy the Glory of God because they are in
communion with him
Everyone who makes it to heaven are unified at the end of time
Only saints in heaven can pray for those still living on earth because
they have proven their holiness
The saints in heaven, those living on earth, and the dead in purgatory
can pray for one another

We will be judged by God

We will be judged by God
At the end of time
At the time of our death
At the time of our death, and at the end of time
After the rapture

At the end of time

At the end of time
We are sure to be with God forever
Our body will reunite with our soul
The good will be snatched and the evil will be left to suffer
Purgatory will open up to receive all souls that are still waiting to be
judged

At the end of time God will judge us

At the end of time God will judge us
True, by how much we love him evidenced by how we treated others
True, by how much we know about him during our life
False, because Jesus already saved us so there is no need for a
judgment
False, because we were already judged when we died
