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!

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.”

Have you noticed just how bad we are at arguing these days, especially online?

Take a look at your Facebook feed during this election year or just scroll through the comments on previous “Pints with Aquinas” episodes, and you’ll see exactly what I mean.

Sometimes it feels like we’re overly eager to misunderstand each other.

Today we’re joined around the bar table by my good friend Fr. Gregory Pine. Together we’re going to discuss 7 things you can learn from St. Thomas Aquinas about how to argue effectively, persuasively and charitably.

It's a new episode of Pints with Aquinas, and I welcome back my friend, Dr. Andrew Swafford—this time to talk about the Biblical basis for the priesthood.

If you've ever wondered what the Bible says about the priesthood (or if it says anything at all about it), then this episode is for you.

Dr. Swafford and I dive deep into the topic and answer such questions as:

- What does a "priest" really mean?

- Why doesn't the Catholic Church ordain women?

- Why do we call priests "Father" when Christ tells us to call no earthly man your father?

- What is apostolic succession?

- Why do we need another mediator, if Christ is already the mediator between us and God?

- And more!!

I think you're going to really love this episode! Enjoy!

Today we'll take a look at what Thomas Aquinas has to say about our Lord's words in Matthew 6:6-7: But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases."

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!
