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.

Marxism and Racism: The Issue Is Never the Issueby Dr. Peter Jones | June 15, 2021
David Horowitz was at one time a knowledgeable 1960s Jewish revolutionary Marxist. After observing from the inside the hypocrisy of Leftist ideology, he is now a political conservative. He brings to bear on our situation today by describing with frankness the stunning “logic” of Marxism: “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” Horowitz […]
