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.

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 […]

Slouching To Ancient Romeby Dr. Peter Jones | August 31, 2018
I’ve just finished reading a description of how Christians were treated in ancient Rome. It was a reality check. It made me think again about Revoice’s well-meaning empathy to the gay culture. A touch of historical realism is in order. This aspect of the Revoice phenomenon must be thoughtfully examined. I believe it can only […]
Revoice: Sliding into Heresyby Dr. Peter Jones | August 3, 2018
PUBLIC STATEMENT In attempting to define in my public article, “Revoice: Sliding Into Heresy,” [truthXchange.com] the meaning of “queer theory” and its relations to dangerous non-binary thinking associated with the justification of same-sex orientation, I misunderstood and misrepresented the thinking of Rachel Gilson, director of theological development at CRU for the Northeast. In fact, RachelGilson rejects “queer theory” and makes […]
