Paganism is replacing Christianity in the Western world. But it’s not one simple brand: we face an onslaught from many directions.
With the Church on the decline in all its forms, and with people looking everywhere else for answers, very old forms of thinking and worship are making new inroads where Christendom once stood firm.
Politics, education, media, government, religion–whatever institutions we count on to be there, functioning for our benefit–Paganism is making a resurgence in all of them.
It sickens me. This episode features a session by Peter Jones at the 2010 Ligonier Conference (yes, I was way off on the year in the episode), called “The Gnostic Gospel.” Here Jones lays the gauntlet for Christians who are tempted to compromise with Pagan ideas. You may be surprised by some of what Jones puts his finger on–it may hit close to home for some of us.
