In this episode of open forum, Jimmy Akin explains why the roots of Christianity are not pagan and much more.
03:03 - I have a predestination question. The Council of Trent says that humans cooperate with grace, but the Catechism says that man’s cooperation with grace is itself a work of grace. Where does man’s own action enter into things?
07:54 - How do we refute the claims that the Old Testament plagiarized old pagan religions?
23:54 - Is it okay for underage practicing Catholics to drink in moderation?
32:14 - What are Jimmy’s views on the theory of atonement?
43:50 - Could neanderthals and other hominids be in Heaven?
48:20 - What are Jimmy’s thoughts on The Imitation of Christ having a dialogue with Christ? It unsettles me how it makes up words for Jesus.
