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.
Regarding “gay marriage” the brilliant New York Times social commentator, Ross Douthat, is batting .500. He is right that present society will not be able to refuse it. He is wrong that it will help salvage our morally challenged world. It is surely true that the Sixties’ “liberation” of sex from marriage and gender (by […]
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 […]
History Is Going Backwards While being reassured by the “progressives” that we are moving forward to a new day of utopian human transformation, in fact, all roads are leading backwards— to pre-Constantine pagan Rome. During that period, the Christian faith was outlawed and officially persecuted [see the first four chapters of my book, Capturing the […]
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.

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 […]
Only Five Black Lives Matter?by Dr. Peter Jones | July 14, 2020
Systemic Racism The accusation of “systemic racism” is everywhere—in the news media, in the halls of government, in churches, and, above all, in politics. The term implies that our country’s entire “system” is shot through in all areas and by all people with the belief that one race (the white race) is better than all […]
