Congratulations to Jeanne Feldhaus the winner of the January Answer Me This Contest:

What is the “pillar and bulwark of truth” according to scripture? Provide the verse of the answer in the blank below:

A. John 16: ____
B. Acts of the Apostles 15: ____
C. Matthew 28: ____
D. 1 Timothy 3: ____

The Answer: D, 1 Tim 3:15 in which St. Paul tells Timothy that the Church of the living God is the “pillar and bulwark of truth.” This may surprise some who doubt the authority and significance of the church’s authority, credibility and particularly its sacred traditions. Clearly, scripture says in this verse that the Church is the pillar of truth. Do we fully appreciate and accept the teaching authority of the Church?
