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.
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 In other words, God’s knowledge is obsolete since we have multiple intellectuals.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 –
