Prayer Intentions?

by Jimmy Akin

in Internet

A reader writes: Would you please consider having a weekly prayer intentions post?  Your blog is so well visited that it could only be a good thing couldn’t it?  The com box could be open for visitors to leave their own intentions and prayer requests.  I know it’s none of my business what you do […]

The Nature Of Hell

by Jimmy Akin

in Theology

A reader writes: I’m currently lutheran, seeking the Catholic Church. But there is one thing that’s bothering me; the definition of hell. I have allways found the orthodox understanding, that hell is the presence of God, or of the truth and light of God, and that heaven and hell is the same "place." While listening […]

A reader called my attention to the fact that James White has posted another piece involving me. YOU CAN READ IT HERE. In it, White complains about some ad copy for The Bible Answerman Debate referring to his ministry as a Fundamentalist one. This is a fair complaint, and I’ll talk to the sales and […]

Yesterday I did a couple of posts about efforts by fans and now, possibly, by J. J. Abrams, to re-cast the characters of the original Star Trek series in order to allow new stories to be told about them more easily. I did so to build up to this: A PROPOSAL BY JOE STRACZYNSKI AND […]

Star Trek XI

by Jimmy Akin

in Film and TV

Ever since Star Trek Enterprise went and got itself cancelled (due to the bad decisions of its producers, such as not focusing on the Earth-Romulan War, and despite the much better fourth season that came too late to save it), Star Trek fans have had no new Star Trek to watch–except for fan productions like […]

I assume from various pieces of evidence I’ve encountered that there are a bunch of Star Trek fans out there making their own fan films based on the franchise. I further assume that most of these are pretty lousy. But I don’t know, because I haven’t seen them. One fan-produced Star Trek effort has stood […]

Okay, I don’t really have a #2 planned for this series, but you never know. Here’s what happened: On my roadtrip to Texas last week, I took along some low-carb food in case I had trouble finding it on the road (in the sense of restaurants; I’m not talking about roadkill!). Among the things I […]

The Oil Of Gladness

by Jimmy Akin

in Sacraments

A reader writes: Have you heard of the ‘oil of gladness’? Someone told us that it is a non-sacramental oil used by lay people. My friend’s mother has been asked to administer it at school on the the feast of St. Peter & St. Paul to those recently confirmed and she’s a bit suspicious about […]

Mystery Photo Revealed

by Jimmy Akin

in Travels

The mystery photo I published earlier today was of the site of President Kennedy’s assassination. The X on the pavement marks the spot where the fatal headshot occurred. I visited Dealey Plaza recently during my trip to Dallas to give a talk on The Da Vinci Code. During the talk, I explained that in the […]

Ever Virgin

by SDG

in Mary

Hey, Tim Jones, here. Several days ago, while commenting on Jimmy’s post entitled James White Responds, I replied to a Catholic-basher who wrote – "You hold to gnosticism by saying that Mary’s hyman remained intact during and after the birth of Christ. By agreeing with that ancient heresy, you guys are by implication sayin that […]
