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: 06:54 - How can some people believe that evil doesn’t exist?   18:52 - When Scripture says, “Be subject to the governing authorities..” what does that mean? What if the governing officials are corrupt?  32:10 - Would it be possible for someone to prove that eternity exists? How can we know that there is an eternal life?  37:40 - Did Jesus know he was going to be Transfigured beforehand?   47:03 - If a person makes an impulsive promise to God without any discernment, is that promise binding?   49:07 - Can the devil make people do things? Can he get into our minds?  Want more from Jimmy Akin?  Teaching with Authority  A Daily Defense: 365 Days (plus one) to Becoming a Better Apologist  The Fathers Know Best: Your Essential Guide to the Teachings of the Early Church
