    In the last lecture, we saw the growth and decline of secular humanism. This ideology had a powerful effect on religion in the West, but the spiritual void that it left was quickly filled by a new spirituality. In this lecture, Dr. Jones demonstrates that Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist, was essential in the development of this so-called new spirituality. He espoused a pagan ideology that emphasized the joining of opposites, and thus relativized right and wrong, male and female, and other relationships. View Resource

  • Explaining Modern Culture Media Resource by

    Romans 1:18-25

    During the 1960s, the United States underwent a paradigm shift in religion. A oncedominant Christian worldview was supplanted by a New Age spirituality that was anything but new. It was, rather, a rearticulation of ancient paganism. This pagan belief system is not limited to certain late-twentieth-century religions; it is the fundamental belief system of all non-Christian religions.
