As far the topic of this post goes, I’ll let the videos do much of the talking. But basically, Voris criticizes Fr. Barron’s point-of-view on Hell, specifically on whether it’s empty.

We can learn a lot from this legendary athlete over what it means to be Catholic. Read more.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2, 6-8 Psalms 15:2-5 James 1:17-18, 21-22, 27 Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23 When Our Blessed Lord said that “evil thoughts” come from us such as “fornication, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, foolishness”, He did not mean to say that we are naturally evil.
