Over the last few years, there have been a few things that I have read; watched or listened to that have been game changers for me. They were things that changed the way that I understand God, love, faith and the Church. I stumbled upon most of these resources online (and many of them are free) so I decided to share my favourite ones here. There are some really powerful videos, talks and posts here, I hope you find something helpful!
The Problem of Evil
Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen?
This video helped me to really understand evil, freedom and love for the very first time and how God allows evil. Be careful not to jump to conclusions right away, or stop watching… give it time to sink in!
I can’t say much, you just have to watch it. This is a video about LIFE, DEATH, and the LOVE of a Savior
The Problem of Moral Relativism
Pope Benedict XVI called relativism the greatest evil of our time. Give this video a watch to learn more… are you a moral relativist?
Being a Man
Fr Larry Richard’ Men’s Conference Talk
Are you Christian man? Watch this video, it will change your life! Father Larry is the perfect priest to talk to guys… be a man!
Scott Hahn's Story
Why a Protestant Pastor Became Catholic
So this one is NOT FREE. But it is worth it. This is the most listened to Catholic audio recording on the planet and tells the story of how Scott Hahn literally discovered the Catholic Church through the bible
Love conqueres All
Faith, Family, and the Early Church
This one also isn’t free. But it it is also really worth it! Ever wondered how the early Church managed to hold off persecution and spread to the ends of the earth? This talk got me to think about how it all went down and how we can use this model for evangelisation today.
Emotional Virtue – Sarah Swafford
An interesting take on the intricacies in the relationships between guys and girls and what that means for you and me.
Why do women do that?
Why do Women do that?
Understanding What Chick Flicks And Love Songs Have To Do With Chastity
This one is also not free, but if you want to hear a compelling talk about the beauty of God’s plan for love, life and sex give this a listen. This really helped me to join the dots and see the bigger picture of why the Church’s teaching not only makes sense but it is actually really beautiful.
Salvation in a song
Everything – Lifehouse
So this is an old video but it is still powerful. Enjoy!
Dating Advice – Jason Evert
Ok so this is a fun one… but why is dating complicated?
