Peter Jones: Creation or the Creator: Who Do You Worship?: Theology, Spirituality, Sexuality & the New Paganism Analyzed (Encore)

.MP3 Available Here

Peter R. Jones, Scholar in Residence and Adjunct Professor of New Testament at Westminster Seminary California, Director of truthXchange, and author of the new book One or Two: Seeing a World of Difference, will address the theme: "Creation or the Creator: Who Do You Worship?: Theology, Spirituality, Sexuality & the New Paganism Analyzed".

Our guest tonight, Dr. Peter R. Jones, believes there are only two worldviews: the worship of the creation and the worship of the Creator. His new book One or Two: Seeing a World of Difference, classifies these two opposing worldviews as "One-ism" (creation worship) and "Two-ism" (Creator worship).

"One or Two offers a provocative, accessible, and urgent message that we ignore to our peril - and that of our non-Christian neighbors." -- Michael Horton, Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary, CA

As the publishers describe Dr. Jones' book:

"Walking around in a blur? Afraid to talk about Jesus? Not sure how Christians fit with other religions? One or Two will help you see a world of difference... Using the apostle Paul's structure in Romans 1, Peter Jones shows why your choice affects everything you think and do: how you think about God (theology), what you worship (spirituality) and how you live your sexuality. Seeing a world of difference and distinctions will help you in making a world of difference."
