This course will cover Catholic Apologetics specifically on the topic of salvation. Some Protestants believe that Roman 10:9 means we just need to believe in Jesus and we are automatically saved. But what does that exactly mean in the understanding of salvation for them? Are they transformed by the Blood of Christ? Are they living saints? And are we as Catholic saved? This course will answer those questions and more to help you understand the Catholic teaching on salvation as well as prepare you to discussion salvation with others.

Students will understand the purpose of this course after watching this lecture. Salvation is a topic often discussed among Protestants, particularly Fundamentalists (a specific type of Protestant who tends to read the Bible literally). Using Romans 10:9, many have suggested that salvation happens by just loving Jesus as your Lord and Savior. We will dig deeper into this topic and discuss whether or not the Bible does hold this understanding of salvation or if perhaps there is a deeper, fuller definition of salvation.
Students will distinguish the word 'salvation' in its various forms of past, present and future tense. It's important to notice that using salvation in different ways changes the meaning so that now we can better understand Romans 10:9 in the proper context. Salvation is a journey, not just a moment of saying "I believe so I am saved."
Students will confront the question "Are Catholics saved?". This question is important to answer and also to share with other Catholics who perhaps are unsure on where the Church stands regarding salvation. Many scripture references will be discussed in this section to show how the Bible explains the full understanding of salvation and where that fits with Catholic doctrine.
Students will learn how salvation fits within the other Catholic doctrines. If salvation is understood in the Protestant sense, do the other doctrines work? And if they do not work, how can someone decide what is true and what is not? These answers are explained in this lecture.
