My colleague, Mike Horton, has just published a book, Christless Christianity. I write, so to speak, from the belly of this beast, attending the National Pastors’ Conference, sponsored by Zondervan and Intervarsity Press, which is taking place in San Diego, February 9-14, 2009. It is amazing to see how these once faithful publishers of evangelical […]

Level One: A Los Angeles Times editorial (April 13, 2006) reports that Frieda Nussberger–Tchacos, the Swiss antiquities dealer who delivered the recently–discovered Gospel of Judas to the National Geographic, is a convicted looter. Tchacos presents herself in semi–angelic prose as someone “chosen by Judas to rehabilitate him.” Judas doubtless rehabilitated her, to the tune of […]
INTRODUCTION Given the institutions where I have taught during my professional life, it is appropriate to begin my overview of the Paganization/Gnosticization  of New Testament Studies with a quote from J. Gresham Machen, speaking of the inroads of Liberalism into the American church at the beginning of the last century: “The truth is that […]
National Public Radio is doubtless the most irritating and probably the most intelligent radio programming in America. It certainly got my Christmas off to a weird start. On the evening of December 21, 1996 NPR broadcast live from the pseudo-Christian neo-pagan Cathedral of Saint John the Divine via two hundred local and willing radio stations throughout the USA, the seventeenth annual Celebration of the Winter Solstice. The two hour concert was paid for, in part, by tax dollars from the NEA, both an example of pagan Church and State working harmoniously together, and a disturbing harbinger of the future.

Black Fathers and White Fathersby Dr. Peter Jones | April 22, 2022
Part of Critical Race Theory is the assumption that racism is inevitably related to white male heterosexuality and the oppressive patriarchy that occurs under the selfish rule of powerful father-figures. Thus, the contemporary version of a “man” in U.S. society is “hyper-masculine, straight, and white…the wealthy white male property owner.” So “…we must begin to […]
Still Time to Care About the Whole Gospelby Dr. Peter Jones | March 2, 2022
In his book Still Time to Care (2021), Greg Johnson, an intelligent Christian thinker, seeks to make a valid case for allowing someone who, like himself, is openly same-sex attracted, gay, and celibate to be an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America. Johnson adopts a profoundly orthodox and well exegetically supported view of biblical sexuality. […]
