Pints With Aquinas

If you could sit down with St. Thomas Aquinas over a pint of beer and ask him any one question, what would it be? Every episode of Pints With Aquinas revolves around a question, a question that St. Thomas addresses in his most famous work, The Summa Theologica. So get your geek on, pull up a bar stool, and grab a cold one. Here we go!

Ever wonder why Catholic Bibles are bigger than Protestant Bibles?

In this new episode of Pints with Aquinas, I interview a genuine expert on the history of the canon of Scripture, Gary Michuta. We talk about issues like:

• What is the “Deuterocanon” and why do Protestants call it “apocrypha”

• How did Martin Luther justify removing seven books from the Old Testament

• Why St. Jerome rejected the Deuterocanon (and why you shouldn’t)

• What impact did the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls have on this question of the canon of Scripture? • Are there any New Testament “proofs” for the Deuterocanon

In this special episode of Pints with Aquinas, I talk with Trent Horn about the issues facing America today. Yep, those issues. The ones you're seeing on TV and all over social media right now. What is the Catholic response to these issues? In this episode, you'll learn about:

  • Socialism, and why Catholics just can't be Socialist
  • Capitalism
  • Black Lives Matter
  • Types of racism, including systemic racism

So, let's get to it. We have a lot to cover!

Today we'll take a look at what Thomas Aquinas has to say about our Lord's words, "the words I have spoken to you are spirit and life." John 6:63.

I'll also give 5 reasons that our Lord's words do NOT mean the Eucharist is metaphorical.

I'm doing something different today.

I want to share with you a debate between Catholic apologist Patrick Madrid and Protestant apologist James White on the topic of Sola Scriptura.

This debate took place in 1993—I was just 10 years old!!

Watch as James White argues that Christians should view the Bible as the sole, infallible rule of faith. And then watch as Patrick Madrid counters with the Catholic view on the Bible's role in our faith lives.

This debate sent SHOCKWAVES through the Christian church in 1993, and I think it's just as powerful today as it was back then. Big thanks to Pat Madrid for letting us share it.

🔴 Check out Patrick Madrid's assessment of the debate in this article: https://www.catholic.com/magazine/print-edition/the-white-mans-burden

Enjoy!

In this episode of Pints with Aquinas, Fr. Gregory Pine and I discuss the "3 Omnis": God's omnipresence, His omniscience and His omnipotence. What do they mean, and what are the common objections to them?

In this episode, watch as we:

  • DESTROY Richard Dawkins' argument against God's omniscience and omnipotence
  • Discuss the concept of "Molinism"
  • Talk about Ricky Gervais' comment that "God is in my butthole" (sorry, his words, not mine)
  • Plus, we answer a lot of common questions about the "omnis," like, "If God knows everything, then He knows if I'm going to Hell or not. What can I do about that?"

Buckle up, and get ready for an INTENSE theological episode!

In this episode of Pints with Aquinas, I chat with my dear friend, Sr. Natalia, who is a Byzantine nun. We talk about what it's like to be a religious sister.

WARNING: In this conversation, we get real, real quickly.

If you're a young woman discerning God's will in your life, then this conversation is ABSOLUTELY for you. Or if you're someone who just loves conversion stories about people radically loving Jesus, then you're going to LOVE this episode.
