The New Age Movement has made a resurgence in 2020. Particularly popular for those claiming to be spiritual and not religious, we cannot write off New Age spirituality as something of the past. It is in the here and now, and even Christians are enticed by it. Astrologer Chani Nicholas is popular among the social media generation seeking spiritual enlightenment.Nicholas, who just released her first book, You Were Born for This: Astrology for Radical Self-Acceptance, has one million monthly visitors to her website and recently appeared on the Netflix show Explained: Astrology. She is not only a voice for New Age spirituality, but as someone who emphasizes her feminism and sexuality, she connects with people from all types of backgrounds. The difficulty with Nicholas is that her mission seems to be pure, to help those who need guidance, but her ideas are dripping with New Age spirituality. Ultimately, according to Nicholas, our hope is not found in Christ, but in the stars.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Lindsey Medenwaldt about her online-exclusive article, “Controversial Guru Teal Swan and Astrologer Chani Nicholas Bring New Age Teachings to the Social Media Generation​.” ​Coming Soon!

“These are the times that try men’s souls,” wrote Thomas Paine in his rousing call to Americans to fight for independence. “The Crisis” was the title of Paine’s work from 1776; and now we face another crisis — not a war of man against man, but of a virus warring against all of humanity. Previous scares about Ebola, swine flu, and other viruses seem — to Americans, at least — small compared to the threat of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which is currently terrifying the globe in March 2020. How might Christians keep a warm heart and a cool head during this crisis, when what we thought was solid seems to be melting away?This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Douglas Groothuis about his online-exclusive article, “Faithful Living Through the Coronavirus“. https://www.equip.org/article/faithful-living-through-the-coronavirus/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

The New Age Movement has made a resurgence in 2020. Particularly popular for those claiming to be spiritual and not religious, we cannot write off New Age spirituality as something of the past. It is in the here and now, and even Christians are enticed by it. Teal Swan is popular among those in the social media generation who are seeking spiritual enlightenment.Swan claims to have endured horrific sexual abuse at the hands of a satanic cult as a child and she uses her platform to help others overcome their own personal trauma. Recently, Swan was immersed in controversy, not only because she has no expertise in trauma other than her own experiences, but also because two of her followers reportedly committed suicide after listening to her lessons about suicide as a safety net. Swan’s popularity doesn’t seem to be waning, though. She has more than 675,000 YouTube subscribers and almost as many Facebook followers. She’s also the author of five books about self-healing and rediscovery.Ultimately, according to Swan, our hope is not found in Christ, but within ourselves.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Lindsey Medenwaldt about her online-exclusive article, “Controversial Guru Teal Swan and Astrologer Chani Nicholas Bring New Age Teachings to the Social Media Generation​.” Coming Soon!

Marxism, rebranded as socialism or democratic socialism today, is making a comeback. And now the makeover is complete. But Karl Marx’s theory suffers the same malady as every materialistic theory: it contradicts the existence of the theorist. How should Christians apply a Christian ethic and world view to civic government? If Christians agree that the government cannot save people or fundamentally change human hearts, how is this an apologetic issue and not a political one? Topics covered in this episode include: Why does it matter that Christians need to have a biblical world view about government? How is socialism defined today? Social scientists say that the meaning of the word socialism can mean different things to different groups. For some it refers to FDR’s vision and his new deal programs in the USA in the 1930s for recovery from the Great Depression vs. socialism as practiced in the Soviet Union in the 20th century or today in Venezuela or North Korea. Is this only a semantical difference? Why have Marx’s views enjoyed a popular renaissance in American culture? What about the word “capitalism”? Where did it come from? Was the early church in Jerusalem communist or socialist?This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Jay Richards about his article from 41:2, “History’s Bloody Mess: Why Marxism (and Socialism) Always Fails”. https://www.equip.org/article/historys-bloody-mess-why-marxism-and-socialism-always-fails/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

The pro-life argument isn’t that it is wrong to intentionally kill fetuses because they are capable of experiencing pain. Abortion is wrong because it intentionally kills innocent human beings. Even so, unborn babies as early as 20 weeks may feel pain intensely.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Megan Almon about her volume 42, number 3/4 (2019) article, “What’s Pain Got to Do with It?

Christians are not averse, in principle, to the concept of nonhuman persons. We attribute personhood to the Trinity and to angels, clearly nonhuman beings. We recognize, however, the danger that lies in attempts to elevate animals to our moral equals in the face of glaring evidence they could never operate as such. These efforts ultimately reduce us all to an undifferentiated mess.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Jay Watts about his article in volume 42, number 2 (2019), “Merely Human: The Problem of Recognizing Chimpanzees as Persons”. https://www.equip.org/article/merely-human-the-problem-of-recognizing-chimpanzees-as-persons/ Normally, we don’t release print articles from last year online so quickly but due to the significance of topic we are making an exception.

Just War Theory (JWT) has been criticized for being so flexible that it can be used to rationalize almost any motivation for initiating war and is therefore of little use in actually preventing war. Because it was originally developed as a means of evaluating the moral considerations of war between nation-states, the applicability of JWT becomes more complicated and difficult to assess when potential combatants reside within the same borders. In this special case, even what would seem to be a straightforward application of the principles used to evaluate state versus nonstate combatants is inadequate because Scripture has more to say about the unique moral imperatives involved in the case of revolution.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Bob Perry about his article, “You Say You Want a Revolution?“. https://www.equip.org/article/say-want-revolution/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

In apologetics, a crucial question to ask a critic of religion is, “What do you mean by God?” Author Philip Pullman gives an imaginative answer to that question in His Dark Materials, a fantasy trilogy for young adults turned television series now airing on HBO. The books originally generated backlash from Christians because of Pullman’s anti-religious bent and his negative characterization of God and the Church. However, a closer look at Pullman’s “god” reveals him to be merely a straw-man, a false god Christians would likely reject as well. Therefore, rather than rushing to defend against Pullman’s attacks on religion and the Church, a more fruitful approach might lie in challenging his assumptions about the nature of God. The imagination is powerful, evidenced by the profound influence Milton’s Paradise Lost had on Pullman and His Dark Materials. However, there are some distinct differences between the two stories, namely Pullman’s assumptions about the kind of world we live in. With Pullman’s choice to cast Dust (or consciousness) as the ultimate foundational reality, he creates a materialistic world in which God is simply another created being. His Dark Materials, with all its fantastical elements, really begins and ends with matter and leaves little room for the immaterial, eternal God of the Christian Bible. Unfortunately, this a priori commitment to an anti-supernatural worldview often results in a distorted understanding of God and Christianity.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Rebecca Howe about her online-exclusive review, “What Do You Mean by God?Pullman’s “Straw-Man God” in His Dark Materials“. https://www.equip.org/article/what-do-you-mean-by-god-pullmans-straw-man-god-in-his-dark-materials/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

The internet gives Christians a virtual platform from which to survey the theological landscape and spot from a long way off the horrifying wrongness of others, and then it is a tool by which we can to correct them, by name, in a tweet, Facebook or Instagram post, or long-form blog post. But what does the Bible say? Should Christians critique others and call each other out by name for theological error or sin? Under what circumstances? In what manner? And how often?This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Anne Kennedy about her online-exclusive article, “Naming Names: Why It’s OK (and Necessary) to Call Out False Teachers and Fugitives from Church Justice by Name“. https://www.equip.org/article/naming-names-why-its-ok-and-necessary-to-call-out-false-teachers-and-fugitives-from-church-justice-by-name/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

This film review examines the artfulness and cinematographic symbolism that makes The Two Popes spiritually uplifting, while also providing philosophical tools to assess its core message of postmodern change for the Roman Catholic Church. The 2020 Oscar nominated film portrays a friendship between Cardinals Joseph Ratzinger and Jorge Bergoglio who became the modern-day two popes–Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Jason Monroe about his online-exclusive article, “A Cinematic Call to Change: Postmodern Reform in The Two Popes.” Coming Soon! https://www.equip.org/article/a-cinematic-call-to-change-postmodern-reform-in-the-two-popes/ We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

The Light of the World Church (TLOW), with over 15,000 temples in 58 countries, claims to be the restoration of the early church of Christ. Although official doctrinal documents are rare, we can trace their central doctrines from its hymnology and other sources. When we analyze three critical doctrines held by TLOW, comparing them to early Christian orthodoxy and early heresies, TLOW aligns more with ancient heresies condemned by the early church. However, rather than being discouraged by the apparent success of TLOW, we should be encouraged to train ourselves so that we may be ready to present a rational defense of the gospel with gentleness and respect. This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author J. Alberto Paredes about his online-exclusive article, “The Light Of The World Or A World Of Darkness?

A 2015 Pew study found that 25 percent of those identifying as Christians believe in reincarnation. For some, the idea of reincarnation offers comfort and guidance. And many times, the pop-culture view of reincarnation, while popular in American circles, does not fit the Hindu and Buddhist religions where the doctrine originated. According to these religions, you do not choose your next lifetime. Karma determines it. That is, the combination of your good and bad actions produces good or bad results (or karma) in this and every lifetime—until you escape the cycle and dissolve into nirvana. Any religious belief may be held on the basis of blind faith, irrespective of any evidence or reasons for that belief. Such beliefs are often called dogmas (although that is not what the word originally meant). Is it mere dogma to oppose karma? Is reincarnation compatible with Christian teaching?This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Dr. Doug Groothuis about his online-exclusive article, “The Reincarnation of Reincarnation”. https://www.equip.org/article/the-reincarnation-of-reincarnation/ Also discussed Dr. Groothuis online-exclusive article “Channeling: Revelations Of Deception” . https://www.equip.org/article/channeling-revelations-of-deception/Other articles and Postmodern Realities podcasts featuring this author:Episode 122 Shamelessly Wrong Shamelessly Wrong: Book Review of Shameless: A Sexual Reformation Nadia Bolz-WeberDeveloping an Agile Apologetic Episode 004: Agile Apologetics Learning From an Apostle: Christianity in the Marketplace of Ideas (Acts 17:16-34) Why Buddhism is Not True: Review of Why Buddhism Is True: The Science and Philosophy of Meditation and EnlightenmentJean-Paul Satre And The Resurgence Of ExistentialismFrancis Schaeffer: Pastor, Evangelist, Apologist, Prophet The Christian Apologist’s Moral Compass Steve Jobs, Jesus, and the Problem of EvilAnd many more, Dr. Groothuis has written articles for us for over 30 years.Don’t miss an episode; please subscribe to the Postmodern Realities podcast wherever you get your favorite podcasts.

First time visitors to an Anglican Church, especially a parish of the high church tradition, are often bewildered. Worship abounds in written prayers, vestments, acolytes, a robed choir, candles, hymns accompanied by an organ. People cross themselves, kneel for certain prayers, stand for others. Communion wine is just that, wine served from a common cup. If it happens to be a feast day, there may be incense. To the uninitiated all these elements may feel positively arcane and certainly alien. People from non-liturgical traditions often find it difficult to categorize Anglican worship. The liturgy looks Roman Catholic, but the preaching sounds Reformed. While the early stages of the English Reformation reflected stricter liturgical proscriptions (incense, for example, would not have been used), thereby disassociating the English Church from Roman eucharistic doctrine, an ethos gradually emerged, articulated in Article 34, called the Normative Principle of Worship (NPW). The rites and ceremonies of the Church are to be “normed” or measured by the Scriptures rather than “regulated” by them. The Church is free to retain or establish whatever does not conflict with Scripture so long as it is done decently and in order.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Matthew M. Kennedy about his online-exclusive Viewpoint article, “The Prayers Rose Like Incense: Anglican Worship and the Normative Principle”. https://www.equip.org/article/the-prayers-rose-like-incense-anglican-worship-and-the-normative-principle/ We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

[This review contains SPOILERS for the film that tells the story of the Austrian hero Franz Jägerstätter who died during World War II.]A Hidden Life, the three-hour film by acclaimed director Terrence Malick is based on the true life story of an Austrian farmer living in the final years of World War II. In it we see the main character, Franz Jägerstätter, a farmer and family man living a modest life in the mountains of Austria, knock again and again at the door of martyrdom. Malick’s latest film shows us the steep price of Franz’s devout Christian faith and his faithfulness to the end of his life taken by Hitler’s Nazi regime. The film shows Jägerstätter’s journey to martyrdom as he pays the ultimate price for his deeply held conviction that Hitler’s world view and the war was immoral and was in opposition to his Christian faith.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Philip Tallon about his online-exclusive movie review, “The Marathon of Martyrdom: A Review of A Hidden Life”. https://www.equip.org/article/the-marathon-of-martyrdom-a-review-of-a-hidden-life/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

The path to emotionalism has been a process of elimination, striking down various authorities along the history of ideas.The history of ideas can be roughly summed up by three main epochs: pre-modernism, modernism, and postmodernism in the mid-late 20th Century. While postmodern ideas may have been commonplace in academia, they still represented a fringe-group of thought experiments. The average person still mostly acted as if there were absolute truths and knowable facts about the world and morality. Fast forward to 2016 when the Oxford Dictionary named “post-truth” word of the year. The seeds that were sown from ivory towers years ago finally tumbled down the hill and blossomed into YouTube videos, Twitter and Facebook rants. According to emotionalism, ultimate truth can be sensed by emotions and expressed in emotional language; truth claims can be gauged by the strength of one’s emotions. If the implicit belief is that the strength of one’s emotions determines the truth of a claim, then what is the logical extension of a person not only trying to convince themselves, but others? More emotions. Louder emotions. ALL CAPS EMOTIONS.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Hillary Morgan Ferrer about her online exclusive feature article , “If I Feel It, It’s True: Combating the Rise of Emotionalism.” https://www.equip.org/article/if-i-feel-it-its-true-combating-the-rise-of-emotionalism/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

“Have you ever thought what it’s like to be wanderers in the Fourth Dimension? Have you? To be exiles?” So asked William Hartnell’s mysterious Doctor back in An Unearthly Child (1963), the very first episode of the long-running British, BBC produced science-fiction TV series, Doctor Who. He is a Time Lord travelling the universe in the TARDIS, a bigger-on-the-inside time machine disguised as a Police Box, fighting monsters with the help of his human companions. Complete with its own convention (the Feb. 2020 convention in Los Angeles is sold out) and other events, Doctor Who has inspired devoted fans worldwide who pour over every detail of each episode (now more than 850 episodes) of the time-travelling doctor. But there’s a tension running through the show’s more than 50-year run, one that goes to the heart of the character of the Doctor. The Doctor is both scientist and messiah, a rationalist trying to grapple with the realities of evil in the universe, and romantic who brings about the fairy-tale ending of everyone living happily ever after.”This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Caleb Woodbridge about his online-exclusive television series review , “The Romantic Rationalism of BBC’s Doctor Who“. https://www.equip.org/article/the-romantic-rationalism-of-bbcs-doctor-who/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

More than 85 million people in the U.S. are avid watchers of the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas films. Complete with its own mobile App, Hallmark Christmas film fans can partake year-round in the romantic, true-love plots. Not just on the Hallmark Channel, but other on-demand viewing channels like Netflix have also gotten into the Christmas film game. All the films have the same plot, the same kiss, the same quaint small town, the same fake snow falling gently onto the shiny hair of the protagonist, the same easy “trouble” resolved in less than one scene, the cookie baking that magically cleans itself up, and the dead mother that the child remembers with fondness rather than gut-wrenching grief. What is a Christian to make of this phenomenon? And, more pressingly, should Christians themselves indulge in the occasional Hallmark movie or even a Hallmark Christmas movie binge?This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Anne Kennedy about here viewpoint article, “Am I a Bad Christian for Watching Hallmark Christmas Movies?”. https://www.equip.org/article/am-i-a-bad-christian-for-watching-hallmark-christmas-movies/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is being marketed primarily on the strength of the cultural similarity between Mr. Rogers, America’s most wholesome neighbor, and Tom Hanks, the lovable actor sometimes called “America’s dad.” It’s a good casting choice, but it might mislead viewers into thinking that Hanks will be as much at the center of the film as he is in Cast Away or Forrest Gump.This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Philip Tallon on his online-exclusive film review “The Eternal Importance of Being Awkwardly Earnest: A Review of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood“. https://www.equip.org/article/the-eternal-importance-of-being-awkwardly-earnest-a-review-of-a-beautiful-day-in-the-neighborhood/We’d also like to invite you to subscribe to the Journal.
