In March, One-ism and Two-ism made its way to Oxford in my suitcase. After the chaos of London traffic, I breathed in the beauty of Oxford in the Spring: Medieval and Elizabethan colleges, surrounded by twenty-foot-high walls; soaring chapels; stunning wood-paneled dining halls; perfectly mown grass quadrangles that produce a sense of scholarly solidity and peace; and, on High Street, high-fashion boutiques designed with exquisite modern taste. Some may consider “One-ism and Two-ism” to be simplistic, but they are only terms that reflect the same stark choice the apostle Paul describes: worship of the Creator or of the creation.
I have never stood on a ten meter high diving tower (the thought makes my head spin) but it must be like what I feel, standing on the threshold of one of the most important weeks of my life. There is no going back. We must take the plunge. On Thursday and Friday, June 17–18, […]
Dr. Jones and Jay Wegter were at University Presbyterian Church on the 22nd of February after spending time at the ABHE conference where Dr. Jones spoke. At UPC Orlando, Dr. Jones had an opportunity to share The Five Points of Paganism with the congregation. You can listen to the lecture by clicking here or by […]
I think Dr. Jones will forgive me for saying this, since he knows I’m being honest: It can be very hard, at first, to see the relevance of Paganism to me, a Christian in modern-day Southern California. When I think of Pagans I don’t tend to think of the lady standing in line in front […]

The Spirituality of Politicsby Dr. Peter Jones | August 24, 2020
As we approach the 2020 presidential elections, Christians should think deeply about their vote. Clearly, no current political party has any right to lay claim to being the G.O.P, “God’s Own Party.” Traditionally, believers (myself included) have sought to avoid taking a public political stance in order both to respect the political choices of fellow believers […]
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 […]
What the PCA Study Committee Did Not Study.by Dr. Peter Jones | June 16, 2020
Our silence in this area could be seen as defeatist or as a fearful withdrawal from engagement with unbelievers on the one volatile subject (LGBT+ issues) that daily overwhelms the news media and leads many institutions, both legal and cultural, to deny Christian citizens the right to free speech and to responsible action.
