    217: Why People Become Atheists w/ Fr. James Brent, OP

    217: Why People Become Atheists w/ Fr. James Brent, OP

    Today on Pints with Aquinas, I'm joined by Fr. James Brent, O.P. Fr. James is professor of philosophy at the Dominican House of Studies, and one of the most brilliant, articulate, and convincing people I’ve ever met.
    During this conversation, we dig into the philosophical soil in which atheism grows — particularly the materialist, mechanicist, nominalist, skeptic, and relativist worldviews so prevalent in our culture. We’ll tackle the BIG issues, like:
    • Why saying there is a God or there is no God represent two radically different worldviews
    • How atheism is, historically, a minority position, and what’s happened to change this minority position in modern times
    • Why true science is actually neutral about the question of God’s existence
    • Why it feels like you’re rejecting science when you reject materialism (HINT: You’re not!)
    • The five negative positions that constitute “big tent” Platonism, and why this list is invaluable in discussions with atheists...
    If you enjoy BIG conversations, then grab your notepad and pen because you’re really going to enjoy this episode!

    Don't Pray Like the Hypocrites | Bible Study W/ Aquinas

    Don't Pray Like the Hypocrites | Bible Study W/ Aquinas

    Today we'll take a look at what Thomas Aquinas has to say about our Lord's words in Matthew 6:5: "And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward."
    That's right ... we're looking at one verse. Why not two? Because you can't handle two! ... and Neither can I.

    Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled | Bible Study W/ Aquinas

    Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled | Bible Study W/ Aquinas

    Today we talk to our Lord's words, "let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid." And we see what Thomas Aquinas has to say on the matter.
    Also, here's the prayer I wanted to share with you.
    Father, I give you thanks, for you have qualified me to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. You have delivered me from the dominion of darkness and transferred me to the kingdom of your beloved Son in whom I have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
    You are the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. By you all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through you and for you. And you are before all things, and in you all things hold together. You are the head of the body, the church. You are the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything you might be preeminent.
    For in you all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through you all things have been reconciled, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of your cross.
    And though I was once alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, you have now reconciled in your body of flesh by your death, in order to present me holy and blameless and above reproach before you.
    Col 1: 12-22

    - Why Sola Scripture is false
    - What is meant by the phrase "Catholic Tradition"
    - and more!
