Independence Day – Afterglow from July 2, Part IV

The deadly results of humanism in American culture are obvious.  Brought by WWII, tremors of disturbing change filtered through society in the 1950’s.  As young seminary student-preachers in the early 1960’s, we sensed their public expression, but lacked the capacity to comprehend or conceptualize their dimensions.  What began as a rebellion against authority in the 1960’s became gradually, and by leaps and bound, the declared intention of unbelievers to turn America from freedom in the Christian faith to freedom from the Christian faith and the celebration of world religions.

Now, in July 2017, all world religions are welcome to practice their faith in public, but Christians are not.  Naturally it reflects Satan’s awareness that Christianity alone threatens his works with demolition.  Nevertheless, secular humanism sees mankind living apart from God in Christ, and, living apart, improving ourselves.

IMPOSSIBLE!

Naturally Satan wants secular humanism or Islam, or a combination of world religions to eliminate Christianity from American affairs.

That’ll be the day!

The Humanist Manifestos of 1933, 1973 and 2000 told the same lies.  That humans don’t need an Almighty God since they have mighty men.  In other words, God’s knowledge is obsolete since we have multiple intellectuals.  That we don’t need to pray since we can reason our way through problems or find their solutions in psychiatry.  That modern humans need only embrace their MATURITY in understanding NATURE, not God.  They see the only sin is not developing our human potential to its greatest degree.  That’s the old human potential movement lies of a generation ago, now called churches, the basis of religious science churches.

Mankind has always been arrogant towards God.  The book of Jeremiah reveals that pomposity in his generation.  But none personifies it so blatantly as the 21st century.

The West fought Communism for 45 years, and won.  Hardly by our brilliance, but by its inner decay.  Still, in all those years, and progressively worse as the 20th century turned into the 21st, we ignored the humanism that ate like a cancer at our body politic, our body education, our body morality.  And has left nothing but a carcass that needs only burial to be a corpse.  And God has his spades digging!     –  Fini –

Independence Day – Afterglow from July 2, Part III

How could America begin in the lives of people committed to God in Christ and now be filled with citizens devoted to secular humanism and its wickedness?  A number of factors have caused and hastened our fall into spiritual depravity.

This writer taught a class of seniors on the subject:  Factors That Have Secularized American Life.  The study will be a pamphlet by this Fall and will be available gratis to anyone asking for it.  Among the factors are:  Post-Modern Preaching, Television, Theory of Evolution, Religious Liberalism, Dual Language Education, Christian Schools, Immigration and Government.

While disturbing tremors of change shook our nation in the 1950’s, generally ignored or misunderstood, the effort to eradicate Christian influence from public life became obvious in the 1960’s.   – End Part III-        Next:  the deadly result of humanism.

Independence Day – Afterglow from July 2, Part II

Historical documents prove the Christianization of this country when founded in 1607 and 1620.  In 1630 the first Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony underscored 1607 and 1620.  But what of the next 200 years?  What did Alexis de Tocqueville find on his tour of America in 1831?  In harmony with the founders’ stated purpose, he had no doubt.  He had seen no country in the world so imbued with the content and spirit of the Christian faith.  America’s Christian Heritage, 9

No question exists that America began and continued as a Christian nation for 350 years, dominated by Biblical morals, beliefs and virtues.  That didn’t mean every person in the nation confessed Christ as Lord.  But using the figure of herd immunity, where only a large-enough number of cattle needs to be immunized to protect the whole herd from that disease, for 350 years enough Christians of redoubtable faith controlled the conscience of all citizens and protected even the unsaved from their unconverted nature.

In all those years the preponderant figure determining American morality wasn’t:  Buddha, Mohammed, Confucius, or any other religious leader.  But only Moses and Jesus Christ, and Jesus above all!

What would America be NOW if we had begun by saying what is said now:  that all religions in America are equal in value and each has its public rights EXCEPT Christianity?  It has NONE!  – End Part II –     Next:  what has changed since the early 1960’s?
