You know—the Age of Aquarius, chakras and crystals, Shirley MacLaine’s “going within,” and Marianne Williams, guru to the stars. Well, the stars are coming out, but the New Age is old hat. They were the good ol’ days.
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 […]
Mainline Decline “One of our finest hours was when our Presbyterian Publishing House, Westminster Press, published books on the death of God theology.” Thus spoke the 1996-97 moderator of the PCUSA, as he accepted the 1996 Alumnus of the Year award from Chicago Divinity School. This “finest hour” helped promote a sustained and growing rejection […]
On September 30, 1938, Chamberlain [that’s Neville not Wilt] returned from Munich having granted Hitler virtually all his demands including the right to annex the Sudetenland, a large chunk of Czechoslovakia. As he walked on the tarmac he waved the agreement in the air and proclaimed “peace with honour,” and spoke of “peace in our […]
When the moon is in the seventh house And Jupiter aligns with Mars Then peace will guide the planets And love will steer the stars This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius (from the smash–hit musical HAIR, 1967) The eschatological musings of Aquarian gurus concerning the dawning of a New spiritually–pagan Age can […]
(Audio Lecture) Identity from Within or from the Mind of Christby Joshua Gielow | April 17, 2020
Dr. Butterfield gives a brilliant analysis of how Christ delivers people caught in the practice of homosexuality, by putting to death the works of the flesh, including the attempt falsely to justify “celibate” homosexual desire as pleasing to God, and by embracing God’s creational truth for his glory and our good. The culture’s definition of […]
Shifting Sandsby Dr. Peter Jones | April 10, 2020
“Lord, what are you saying during this crisis?” That is the question on every Christian’s mind. The mighty, miniscule virus is slaying thousands every day. On March 29th, Dr. Anthony Fauci estimated that the US might see between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths before the crisis fades. Christians must yet remain calm, asking God to give us […]
An Elephant Called Fearby Rebecca Jones | April 8, 2020
But if we are to chase the elephant of fear out of our churches, we must allow God to face it down through the power of his love. “God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of love, of power, and of a strong mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). If we are to face down the elephant of fear, we must do it by absorbing God’s forgiveness. “Perfect love casts out fear, because fear has to do with punishment” (1 John 4:18).
Spirituality: Mindfulness or the Mind of Christby Joshua Gielow | March 23, 2020
Mrs. Pamela Frost gives a most useful and dense comparative contrast between pagan “Mindfulness” and “the Mind of Christ,” showing clearly how the Mind of Christ distinguishes between the Creator and creation, while Mindfulness blurs distinctions and leads people into the pagan lie of “nonduality.” Eastern spiritualties work against having our minds set on Christ. The […]
