Product Description

Gnosticism, polytheism and postmodernism - these three isms spanning centuries of time have become strangely connected. Together they help explain the nature of today's pagan worldview on our once "Christian" Western culture. This syncretistic thought system of a new faith in humanism has a radical reinterpretation of the very nature of human existence. Understand The Pagan Heart of Today's Culture and form a biblical response. Softcover booklet, 44 pages, 8.5" x 5.5".

Publisher's Description

Although the three “Isms” of postmodernism, polytheism, and the ancient heresy of Gnosticism seem unrelated, this booklet shows that all three are part of the ancient religious worldview of Creator-denying "Oneism"—that seeks to impose significant elements of a pagan civilization on our once "Christian" Western culture. Peter Jones, a commentator on pagan influences in our culture, shows us what these three “-Isms” are, how they have morphed into new forms in modern culture, and what effects they are having. With a clearer understanding of the coherence of this opposing spiritual system, which comes in many forms, Christians will be empowered to make a clear and fearless declaration of the superiority of biblical "Twoism"—that God is utterly separate from his creation—and promote the gospel of reconciliation with the personal Creator through the atoning blood of the only mediator, Jesus.

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Peter Jones should be renamed Irenaeus Issachar Jones. Like the great church father, Irenaeus of Lyons (c. 130-c. 200), for the sake of the gospel he has explored an astonishing array of contemporary "spiritual" movements. His analyses have already helped many Christians think more clearly about the influences on our culture. And like the men of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32), Peter Jones understands the times and knows what to do. The Pagan Heart of Today's Culture merits the attention of every minister, teacher, parent and student.
My friend Peter Jones has written a number of books, showing that contemporary ideologies like “new age," neopaganism, pantheism, mysticism, modernism, and postmodernism, can be seen as varieties of what he calls “oneism," the view that we are all one, because we are God and God is us. Oneism is opposed to “twoism”­biblical Christianity, with its distinction between the creator and the creature. As such, oneism closely resembles ancient Gnosticism, which in turn sheds much light on the nature of the contemporary ideologies. Jones’ argument here is somewhat complicated, but The Pagan Heart of Today's Culture does much to clear it up. It is a short book, built out of very short sections. After every four or five paragraphs, Jones provides questions so that the reader can review what he or she has just read. Bit by bit, the details come into focus, and the reader perceives the true threat of these movements and the urgency of faith in the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.
