Something I heard (apologetics)

I listened to a re-broadcast of a Catholic Answers show that had a special call-in for non-Catholics. I believe Tim Staples was the guest that day. A caller was having trouble with transubstantiation and said it just doesn't happen and he didn't believe it. Tim(I believe) asked him, "If God wanted to change that host to the body of His Son, could He do it?" The guy refused to answer because it was a "hypothetical question". Hmmm. Is it that or fear of admitting the truth that yes, in fact, God could do that and more and for a non-Catholic, that is just too much to comprehend.

Just thought it was an interesting question to stop a protestant in their tracks.

That's the whole problem with protestant arguments - they place limits on God.
Could God overshadow a virgin and cause her to conceive a child?
Could God change bread into His Body?
Could God create a Church which is ALWAYS guided and protected by the Holy Spirit, even when sinful people are among her members?
Could God the Son send His mother to Fatima, Lourdes, and other places to speak to people?
Noooo, that doesn't make sense to my feeble mind, therefore it obviously couldn't happen.

Isaiah 55:8:

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD.

Either that means something, or it means nothing.
