    224: Ghosts, Demon Babies & Werewolves w/ Jimmy Akin

    Today, I'm joined around the bar table by my good friend and Catholic Answers' apologist Jimmy Akin to talk about what Aquinas had to say about the Occult. (Cue spooky music).
    Wow, Aquinas has a LOT to say about this topic.
    Here are just a few of the things you'll learn about during my conversation with Jimmy:
    - What Aquinas had to say about Psychic Powers
    - Werewolves
    - Crystal Healing
    - Astrology
    - Ghosts
    So, buckle up, turn on all the lights so you don't get scared, and let's talk about the Occult!

    "Has No One Condemned You?" | Bible Study w/ Aquinas

    "Has No One Condemned You?" | Bible Study w/ Aquinas

    This is the third and final part of a three-part series we've been doing on John 8:1-11 (The woman caught in adultery).

    📖 Here is the text from the ESV: but Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning, he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” This they said to test him, that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”

Informative and fun

Matt Fradd does a splendid job combining easy-to-understand explanations of theological concepts employed by Aquinas with a fun and entertaining tone and structure. Great guests, interesting subjects, it’s one of mine go-to podcasts about Catholicism. Highly recommended!
