The Patrick Madrid Show: April 23, 2024 – Hour 3

Today on The Patrick Madrid Show, we dove deep into the heart of scripture and truth with listener Tom from Tennessee. We wrestled with the effects of the Reformation, the authority of scripture versus private interpretation, and the catholic tradition in understanding the Bible. A fascinating discussion unfolded around the essential question, ‘Who determines truth?’ Together, we explored the profound implications of scripture alone and the need for a solid interpretative key through apostolic tradition. If you’ve ever grappled with scripture’s meaning or the pursuit of truth, stay tuned for a conversation that brings 2000 years of wisdom to the table.
