The Fourth Phase: Persecution?

By Dr. Peter Jones In a perceptive article on the recent history of Evangelicalism in America (which I recommend),[1] Aaron Renn, a writer for First Things, confirms something I have been thinking for some time: politics has become religious. It is thus difficult to speak out about traditional moral behavior without being “cancelled” or charged with being…

Overture 15 Must Be Adopted

I have been asked to write on why the PCA presbyteries should formally vote to include the new paragraph, Overture 15 in the Book of Church Order 7-4: Men who describe themselves as homosexual, even those who describe themselves as homosexual and claim to practice celibacy by refraining from homosexual conduct, are disqualified from holding…

Guilty of Christian Nationalism?

The latest critics of the Christian faith accuse Christians of being selfish, out-of-date, non-constitutional “Christian nationalists” who would impose all the Christian rules on everyone around them. Think Ku Klux Klanners parading through Washington, DC in the 1920s to defend “Protestant America.”[1] Or the The Handmaid’s Tale or a Christian version of 1984. Christians will, they believe, impose an…

Gods of Sex

This irony is a warning for all Christians who are quite capable of similar sinful actions and who are constantly reminded that sinners in the hands of an angry God, including androgynous practitioners, can also know his forgiving grace if they turn to Jesus, God’s Son, confess their sin, and own him as their only…

Mark your calendar for September 26th through the 30th, TruthXChange’s 2022 Symposium in the month of September: “Stolen Identity: The Theft of the Binary in Contemporary Society.” “What are your pronouns?”  “How do you identify?”  These current cultural questions are a restatement of one of the oldest questions of the human race: “Who am I?”  Today’s…

Black Fathers and White Fathers

Part of Critical Race Theory is the assumption that racism is inevitably related to white male heterosexuality and the oppressive patriarchy that occurs under the selfish rule of powerful father-figures. Thus, the contemporary version of a “man” in U.S. society is “hyper-masculine, straight, and white…the wealthy white male property owner.” So “…we must begin to…

Still Time to Care About the Whole Gospel

In his book Still Time to Care (2021), Greg Johnson, an intelligent Christian thinker, seeks to make a valid case for allowing someone who, like himself, is openly same-sex attracted, gay, and celibate to be an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. Johnson adopts a profoundly orthodox and well exegetically supported view of biblical sexuality.…

Post-Christian Ideologies at Christian and Secular Colleges

For some time now, truthXchange has been warning the church about the inroads that post-Christian ideologies are making into Christian colleges. The pagan worldview that reasserted itself in America in the late 20th century has now incorporated new ideas about sexuality, race, and other hot-button topics. A recent series of articles in mainstream outlets shows just how bad things have…

The Return of Roman Religion

The West is increasingly anti-Christian. Recent opposition is not secularist or rationalist, nor is it merely political. It is deeply religious. How do Christians face this competing religious system? It may help us to realize how similar our own culture is to that of the ancient Roman Empire. A serious academic study, Pagans and Christians in the…

Mary: Born into the Church by Faith

Mary is unique among women in bearing the Christ-child. It is little wonder that she “pondered these things in her heart”! We sense her godly confusion. Did she, like many others, assume that Jesus would physically take the “throne of his father David”? The prophet Simeon had predicted that a sword would pierce Mary’s soul.  And…

The Significance of the Incarnation

Christmas is the time of gift-giving. The Incarnation is the time of the greatest gift ever given in the history of the universe. God, the Creator of the Universe, who is ultimately unknowable, gave to human beings the good gift of being part of the creation, and now gives himself in the person of his…

Watch Out for Millstones

Watch Out for Millstones We rarely pay attention to one of the most shocking warnings Jesus ever gave: “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea (Mark 9:14).…

Is This Our Soon Coming Future?

Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò describes the globalist “Great Reset,” devised by Davos billionaires and powerful politicians, as the work of Satan and “Luciferian Globalists.”[1] Protestant American believers warn that “America is writhing in the grip of a full-scale Marxist political and cultural revolution.”[2] Some conclude that the two movements are deeply related. As responsible citizens,…

It is My Business

I recently heard a sermon that gave me deep concern. It was on 1 Peter 4:12–13, a text that predicts serious suffering for Christian believers. Peter, who was crucified upside down by the “civil” authorities of Rome, wrote: “Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test…

Guilty, Anyone?

How easy it is for us to feel guilty and to make others feel guilty. The damning accusation of racism divides both the culture and the church because it is one of the most deeply felt indictments one could hear. Such an indictment creates guilt and shame in the accused, yet it is deeply subjective. Anyone…

How to Evaluate Christian Colleges: Six Questions Parents Should Ask

When you think of a Christian college, what image comes to mind? For many of us, we envision idyllic campuses, brick buildings, devout professors, zealous students, fervent worship, transformative bible studies, and life-long friendships. Christian colleges have influenced the lives of millions of Americans, fostering generations of faithful followers of Christ. But how well does…
