Website Review: Catholic Planet
A review based on: http://www.catholicplanet.com
This site is the venue for the writings of Ronald Conte, self-described as a Catholic theologian. His site features numerous articles about Catholicism. Most controversial are his eschatology writings which give precise dates of future events right up to the coming of Christ (which he predicts to be in the 26th century). His claims are based on his interpretation of the Bible and private revelation throughout history.
While you may find something worthwhile on this site, it is replete with Mr. Conte's speculative theology. We suggest you avoid it unless you are a theologian and qualified to sift through and determine what is true and what isn't.
