One or Two

The Apostle Paul writes in Romans 1:25:

because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

It’s not a question of Religion or no religion? It’s a question of Which religion?

Using insight from Romans, Peter Jones effectively shows in his book, One or Two: Seeing a World of Difference, that it all comes down to worship of The Creator (e.g. God, Christianity) Two-ism or worship of creation (e.g. Paganism, various forms of Hinduism) One-ism.

Here’s the best quote:

A scene in the movie, The Lord of the Rings, shows the band of heroes hopelessly surrounded by thousands of orcs in the Mines of Moriah. Then, miraculously, the ugly crowd, in a squealing frenzy, dissolves into the shadows. Relief registers on the travelers until… a far more fearsome enemy emerges from the depths of the earth-a Balrog, demon from the beginning of time.

Christians were relieved when secular humanism, long-time enemy of biblical supernaturalism, scurried off into the shadows. Little did we realize that a demon from the beginning of time threatens our Fellowship of the King. That demon comes in disguise, offering spiritual help from the one place where it cannot be found: within the human soul.

Jones doesn’t lie. However, after reading One or Two you’ll see that the Lie is all around us.
