Open Forum

Jimmy Akin

Audio only:

Callers choose the topics during Open Forum, peppering our guests with questions on every aspect of Catholic life and faith, the moral life, and even philosophical topics that touch on general religious belief. 

Questions Covered:

  • 04:00 - In the book of Revelation, at the end of time it talks about the antiChrist. Is this a real person or a mentality? 
  • 07:43 - When was Jesus aware that he was the Lord? 
  • 15:44 - Is it true that if you leave the Catholic Church you go to hell? 
  • 21:09 - Can we know as Catholics whether the pandemic is a chastisement from God? If yes, then what is it for? 
  • 29:05 - Can you explain St. Thomas Aquinas’ view on the Immaculate Conception? 
  • 33:59 - Do you remember things in heaven that you’ve forgotten on earth? 
  • 36:47 – Can you ask Jimmy to speak a little on the tradition of ‘sending our Guardian Angels to Mass’ on our behalf, when we can’t get there? Is this a valid thing and how does it work? 
  • 43:01 - Does the Catholic Church condemn interest rates as usury? 
  • 48:09 - In the Creed it mentions that Jesus “rose again.” Was there another rising that took place? 
  • 50:24 - How did the Church develop the concept of original sin? Since Jews don’t believe in original sin, what did they think about Adam and Eve?
