      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the concept of the Trinity in Christianity refers to the belief in one God who exists in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit. This belief is considered a mystery because it is difficult for humans to fully comprehend how one God can exist in three persons. The statement on page 52 confirms the existence of this belief in the concept of the Trinity.

    Catholics are permitted to accept physical evolution. p. 59

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Catholics are allowed to accept physical evolution because it is not in conflict with their religious beliefs. The Catholic Church has stated that there is no inherent contradiction between faith and the theory of evolution. They believe that God created the universe and set in motion the processes that led to the development of life, including human beings. Therefore, Catholics are free to accept the scientific evidence for evolution while still maintaining their faith in God as the ultimate creator.
