Jordan Peterson seems to be a genuine seeker after truth, with an insatiable appetite to put the world together in a coherent worldview. Much of what he says is very “Christian friendly,” but his coherence breaks down when he finds inspiration in Carl Jung, one of the most powerful creators of today’s post-Christian, neo-pagan culture. […]
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!
Speaker: Dr. Peter Jones (Executive Director, truthXchange) Title: Two-ism and the Doctrine of God I have much to say about this doctrine (the doctrine of Two-ism). Why this conference on the beauty of two? The message of “One and Two” attempts to explain Romans 1:25, which outlines two options of worship: Worship of Creator (Two-ism) […]
Peter Jones, the director of truthXchange, has written a most incisive treatment and application of Romans 1. He considers, with good reason, that the two hottest issues today are Christian uniqueness and homosexuality. When we reject the revelation that God has given to all mankind, our theology is distorted (Rom.1:18-21), then our spirituality or worship (Rom.1:22-23), and finally our behaviour, especially our sexuality (Rom.1:24, 26-32). This does not make for pleasant reading, but it is no time for Christians to make-believe that all is well.

Remember that bucolic vacation in the countryside when a rooster’s crowing gently raising you from sleep to one more delicious day of sheer joy, away from city noise, surrounded by the reassuring sights and sounds of nature? It was not like that at all. The third time Peter denied Jesus, a rooster crowed, it was […]
Voddie Baucham and the Dangers of Critical Race Theoryby Dr. Peter Jones | May 17, 2021
A Book Review of Fault Lines (Salem books, 2021) On the much debated subject of racism, an evangelical/reformed black American theologian (who now lives in Africa) inspires confidence, since he sees “social justice” from many sides.

Cancel Cancel Cultureby Dr. Peter Jones | April 10, 2021
The Phrase “Cancel Culture” “Cancel culture” came into the collective consciousness around 2017, after the idea of “canceling” celebrities for problematic actions or statements became popular. American institutions and corporations now engage in censorship that was previously unimaginable, piling on critiques of a person, business, movement, or idea. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and other Big Tech giants […]
