I was sick last week, and that was the reason for no show. The show is obviously back this week and I discuss, briefly, Bernard Lonergan's theory of the Law of the Cross. It is very interesting and I encourage you all too look into it a bit more deeply.
In this week's episode I discuss one of the causes of schism between the Orthodox and Catholic church. A tiny phrase n the Nicean creed known as the filioque clause. What is it? And what is the answer to Orthodox objections to it? Listen to find out.
In this episode I briefly discuss a couple Christological heresies and why it was important for the church to formalize Trinitarian dogma. Please visit my website at williamhemsworth.com If you would like to support the show visit patreon.com/williamhemsworth
In this episode I discuss the criteria that the church used to determine which books should be in the New Testament canon. It was a long process, and the Holy Spirit guided the church. Through the Holy Spirit the Catholic Church compiled the New Testament that all of Christianity uses today.
The Trinity is a key component of the Christian faith, and yet it is one of the most misunderstood. In this week's episode I discuss three verses that you can put in your apologetics toolbelt to help you defend the Trinity.
In this week's episode I discuss the first book of St. Augustine's great work titled On The Trinity. As in his day, there is still much heresy being spread about the Trinity. His work helps explain it in a deeper way and counter heresies that are still around today.
In this weeks episode I briefly discuss the concepts of Divine participation and possession. This concept is seen in scripture, the writings of the early church fathers, and other theologians through history. Consider supporting my work at www.patreon.com/williamhemsworth
In this week's episode I take a look at the differences in grace in Protestant and Catholic Theology. I look at early church history to show the early teaching, and follow it up until the reformation where the view of Luther and Calvin are discussed.
It has been a couple weeks since the last episode, and I thank you for your understanding. In this week's episode I discuss abortion and moral theology. What is the church teaching regarding an abortion? Is it justified to save the life of a mother?
In this week's episode I discuss the meaning of mystery and sacrament in sacred scripture. God wants us to be in relationship with him, and at times will uses physical objects and our senses to do so. He also facilitates this through the priesthood as we see in many Old Testament examples.
I took a week away from the show to digest all the news regarding the sex scandals that have hit the church. This week's show is meant to encourage you during this hard time. We look at Mark 4:35-41. Keep your eyes on Jesus. Jesus promises to be with us until the end of the age and that hell would not prevail against his church. Jesus is still in charge.
In this week's show I give my thoughts on the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report that broke this week. I also go over a couple do's and don'ts in regards to this situation. In any regard it is time to wipe out this cancer.
In this week's episode I answer three listener questions. What is the eternal sin? Why are you catholic if you claim to have read the Bible? Is the recent change regarding the death penalty an exercise of papal infallibility?
