Paganism in Today’s Culture

Paganism in Today’s Culture

The Millennial Generation is the first generation of the modern era to receive a fully-developed neo-pagan cosmology masquerading as the correct, progressive view of history and demanding to be inscribed in public policy.

In 1982 Francis A. Schaeffer in his A Christian Manifesto warned the Church:

“Christians…have seen things in bits and pieces… permissiveness, pornography, the
public schools, the breakdown of the family, and finally abortion… instead of totals
…They have not seen this as a totality–a shift in the world view — that is,…a funda-
mental change in the overall way people think and view the world and whole life as
a whole.” (Schaeffer)

This has become a cosmology of worldview or network of plausibility structures so radical it can take your breath away, as stated some years ago by the futurist thinker, Jeremy Rifkin, an adviser to the European Union since 2002 and head of the largest global economic development team in the world. In 1983 at a point in the maturation of the 60’s cultural revolution, he declared in A New Word– A New World:

“We no longer feel ourselves to be guests in someone else’s home and therefore
obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of preexisting cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We
create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces.
We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the
universe. We are responsible for nothing outside ourselves, for we are the kingdom,
the power, and the glory forever.” (Rifkin)

“Many consider paganism a dead religion that was practiced thousands of years ago. However, paganism’s ideas still affect us today. In this session, Dr. Peter Jones describes how paganism continues to be a force in today’s culture. He points out places where pagan thought affects the world’s way of thinking, and he describes how Christians can guard against that influence. He also explains ways that Christians can renew their minds and live as children of God among a twisted generation.

Video: Twoism and the Doctrine of God

“There is nothing like the Biblical Gospel in all of history: the transcendent Lord above, bearing our sins on the Earth below, bestowing merit on undeserving sinners. –This Twoist doctrine of God is the jewel of our historic Christian faith. Without it, Christianity becomes one more form of sentimental Oneism.”

This video was recorded during the 2012 Think Tank in Escondido, CA.
