In our Wednesday evening classes, we have been examining the cults that are pre-eminent in our culture today. One might say there aren’t many, but this is not the truth as we have seen throughout the year. Some of the topics we have heard about include Mormonism, Jehovah Witnesses, The Charismatic movement, Calvinism, Catholicism, Scientology and the latest study on Secular Humanism.
“What?” you say. “Secular humanism isn’t a cult. It’s just a way of thinking.”
Well, that way of thinking is sending people into Godless oblivion! A place of torment, called Hell.
A humanist hates God. A humanist doesn’t want to have to give God credit for anything. He will hate the Word of God. He will hate the mention of God. He will stop prayer in schools and omit “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. He will tell your children that there was a big bang that started everything on the earth. He will do whatever it takes to make sure that our country looks only to man and science for answers.
Where does it start? We would look to Genesis 1:1-3 for the beginning. “In the beginning, God created…”
A Humanist will go back “billions of years” to a non-existent time when everything came from nothing. HA!
We first looked at a video that tells us “What Darwin Didn’t Know”. He didn’t have the technology to look into a single cell and see that it is a fantastic machine, made of parts that could only have been put together by the mind of a creator.
(If you are interested in seeing this, you can find it on Youtube. This blogger decided not to post it because of the comments following. Sadly, there are those who want to sound intelligent, but can’t express a thought without being vulgar.)
Daniel 1:3-4 The young men that were taken captive were able to understand science. Darwin didn’t have anything on these guys.
The truth is, as Peter brought out, that the earth could never survive billions of years. The deterioration of the earth cannot be explained by a humanist because it should have been gone by now.
Humanism has brought us men like John Dewey, who signed the First Declaration of the Humanist Manifesto in 1933, who said, “Public schools must become exclusively humanist and we must remove the religious superstition from students.”
