An Amazon review of my Rome's Audacious Claim, available wherever books are sold: "This book presents, in my opinion, a definitive case against the papacy. Even better, Pavao presents this case in a clearheaded manner without falling into exaggerated polemics. I highly recommend this book and would encourage those in the RCC to read it and, if they are convinced Pavao’s argument is wrong, provide an answer to this book."

This page is to facilitate discussion and to answer questions concerning the things I teach on that page. I littered that page with quotes from the early Christian writings, and I added a page to handle objections. All of this was done because this very, very important teaching does fly in the face of fundamentalist traditions.

This teaching on the Word of God is very important because it is so practical.

My father-in-law told me once that for most of us, the best way to evangelize is to get up each day and seek God. When we pray for people, we should keep our heart open in case God gives us anything to say to them. If he gives us something, we need to be careful to say it. 

My father-in-law is not a charismatic or pentecostal. He is simply a man trying to follow Jesus Christ the best way he knows how. But he knows that the Word of God is more than the Bible, and he knows that if we're going to make an impact on the world in the 21st century, then we are going to need more than the Bible—we're going to need the Spirit and the Word of God, in all its forms.

I'm pretty sure my father-in-law would object to the wording I'm using on this page. He tends to leave the sacred cows alone. His advice for evangelism, however, is a perfect example of why this teaching is so important.

I've been through evangelism classes. They're missing the point, which is why they're so ineffective. The Gospel is not a plan; it's a Man.

An outline will never get you through to someone when God wants you to tell them to throw their net on the other side of the boat.

This is an ad written by me, Paul Pavao: I get a commission if you buy Xero shoes, which does not increase your cost. Barefoot running/walking is the best thing for your feet--if we did not walk on cement, asphalt, and gravel. Normal shoes compress your toes and do a lot of the work your lower leg muscles should be doing. Xero shoes are minimalist and let your toes spread and your feet do the work they are supposed to do.
