Jungian spirituality has seduced the masses. Jung’s personal practice of occultism and sexual freedom, presented as a “scientific” method, gave vast authority to the subconscious. People today justify all kinds of pagan spiritualities and sexual fantasies in the name of self-expression and spiritual health. Not the Bible but my subconscious “tells me so.” This corresponds with the Sixties Jungian mantra, “If it moves, fondle it, if it feels good, just do it.” This last phrase became a Nike commercial!
At Christmas we celebrate a purely Two-ist joy: The Word, who exists outside and apart from creation as its Creator, took on flesh in order to save His people from their sins. But if One-ism were reality, what would we have to celebrate during this time of “Winter Holidays”?
Marxists state that “everything is political.” While incorrectly emphasizing the political, they rightly see that everything in human experience is related in some way to everything else. The implications of this logic are becoming obvious in the contemporary United States. The religious beliefs of the original founders about the nature of reality determined the political […]
I have never stood on a ten meter high diving tower (the thought makes my head spin) but it must be like what I feel, standing on the threshold of one of the most important weeks of my life. There is no going back. We must take the plunge. On Thursday and Friday, June 17–18, […]
For years I have been seeking terms to identify the enemy of the Christian faith in the modern world, since you cannot engage an enemy until you have clearly identified it. An enemy that describes itself or “frames the issues” will always wear camouflage, and will catch you in a catastrophic ambush. Examples abound. Homosexual […]
“Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden” Commit Two Major Mistakes in Ethicsby truthXchange | October 16, 2020
By Dr. E Cal BeisnerSenior Teaching Fellow In my years as a seminary professor of ethics, I saw few things more sinister and devious than the seemingly innocuous statement, “a biblically shaped commitment to the sanctity of human life compels us to a consistent ethic of life that affirms the sanctity of human life from […]
Law & Public Policy: NOT a Gospel Issue?!by truthXchange | September 10, 2020
Senior Fellow Post by Dr. Jeffery J Ventrella In today’s 24-hour news cycle, political banter is virtually unavoidable and a lot of what we hear is distasteful. Consider a few recent examples: Robert De Niro spewing crude language toward POTUS at the Tony Awards A race-baiting often-politico clergyman claiming he’s only “anti-termite” not anti-Semitic Popular TV […]
The Spirituality of Politicsby Dr. Peter Jones | August 24, 2020
As we approach the 2020 presidential elections, Christians should think deeply about their vote. Clearly, no current political party has any right to lay claim to being the G.O.P, “God’s Own Party.” Traditionally, believers (myself included) have sought to avoid taking a public political stance in order both to respect the political choices of fellow believers […]
Cultural Warts or Faithful Servantsby Dr. Peter Jones | August 20, 2020
According to recent polls, most young people “have graded Christianity, and so far, the grades aren’t looking good.” Young believers do not want the name “Christian” because of “the baggage that accompanies the label.” We all have baggage, but there is something very fishy going on here. Why is the most ethical, humane movement in […]
