This debate between a former Roman Catholic now turned Protestant & a former Protestant now turned Roman Catholic . The debaters: representing the "Sola Scriptura" (the "Scriptures Alone" & nothing else) position is Rob Zins, Th.M, Dallas Theological Seminary (website: CWRC-RZ ORG), former Roman Catholic, author of the books, "On the Edge of Apostasy -The Evangelical Romance with Rome," "Romanism: The Relentless Roman Catholic Assault on the Gospel of Jesus Christ," "I Am a Christian. Perhaps You are Not. Is This a Big Deal?", editor of the newsletter "Theo-Logical", conference speaker, director of "A Christian Witness to Roman Catholics," & special guest with Larry Wessels in the 16 hour video series posted on YOUTUBE entitled, "ROMAN CATHOLICISM SERIES." Representing the Roman Catholic position which elevates Roman Catholic traditions & rituals to the same level as the Scriptures (the Bible) is former Protestant now turned Roman Catholic Gerry Matatics. According to Wikipedia Mr Matatics is a Sedevacantist apologist (Sedevacantism is the position held by a minority of Traditionalist Catholics who claim that the Papal See has been vacant since either the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 or Pope John XXIII in 1963. Sedevacantists believe that Paul VI (1963--1978), John Paul I (1978), John Paul II (1978--2005) and Benedict XVI (since 2005) have been neither true Catholics nor true Popes, by virtue of allegedly having espoused the heresy of Modernism, or of having otherwise denied or contradicted solemnly defined Catholic dogmas. Some of them classify John XXIII (1958--1963) also as a Modernist antipope.) for what he's termed "consistent Catholicism" as opposed to "counterfeit Catholicism" (referring to mainstream Catholicism).

Prior to his conversion to Catholicism he was an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). He used to work for Karl Keating, as part of his "Catholic Answers" apologist team. Mr Matatics taught as a professor in St. Joseph's University, the Notre Dame Pontifical Catechetical Institute, and served for three years as Professor of Sacred Scripture and Apologetics at Our Lady of Guadalupe International Seminary of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter in Scranton, Pennsylvania, before becoming a Sedevacantist
