Paganism is one of the fastest-growing religions in America. Nearly 1.5 million Americans openly claim paganism as their religion. And most self-identified pagans in America have embraced a broader form of paganism. Liel Leibovitz, editor of Tablet, defines this form of paganism as the belief that nothing is true, and everything is permitted. While many pagans would say they are atheists, they can’t escape the fact that man is religious by nature. We’re created beings, and this implies there is a Creator. And when we deny the Creator God, we become our own god, make up our own rules, and tell a new story—one that displaces the story of Jesus Christ who came to fix the brokenness in the world and fill our deepest longings.
