428-437 Dr. Peter Jones, director of the truthXchange (, reaches college and university students who've embraced the new – which is actually ancient – pagan spirituality of gnosticism.  We aren't becoming increasingly secular and naturalistic, but more pagan and gnostic in Western culture.  We are embracing "one-ism" over "two-ism," or homocosmology over heterocosmology (i.e., same over different).  He lays it all out in his latest On Global Wizardry: Techniques of Pagan Spirituality and a Christian Response (2010).  His forthcoming book is entitled The Gnostic Empire Strikes Back.

• Peter is holding the X-Change Conference at the Rock Church in San Diego on June 17-18 with Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, Kevin Deyoung – two full days of great speakers warning us not to exchange the truth for a lie.   Discounts are available for groups of 3 or more at just $50 a seat.  Call (877) 840-0457 or go online at

612-623 – • CST (2/22/2010) JOAN AND DAVID LINCOLN PLEDGE $10 MILLION TO THE CLAREMONT UNIVERSITY PROJECT.  I want to thank Russ Reeves, Academic Dean at Providence Christian College in Ontario, for sending me this link.  I had speculated last night that it could be Muslim money that's funding the new Claremont School of Theology's effort to become the first "truly multi-faith American seminary."  I was wrong.  It was from the Lincoln's.

•• LA Times (6/9/2010) Claremont seminary reaches beyond Christianity.  Calling multi-faith expansion the next step, the school will offer training for Muslims and Jews in a program that strains its historic ties to the Methodist Church.  Who is bankrolling the Claremont School of Theology?  Where is the $10 million coming from?  I wouldn't be surprised if it's Muslim money.
