SECULAR HUMANISM

Living in the absence of God

Secular humanism is the mental framework that dominates our current society. Its thought patterns are exclusively concerned with human interests and human activities. That means, literally, the exclusion of God. The human being, not God, is the centre and measure of all things. In our hands we hold both our individual and global destinies.

Secular humanism is not a harmless ideology drifting in as we forget about God; rather it is an aggressive, planned strategy to rid the world of God. Expressed by Huxley in The Humanist Manifesto I and II in 1993 and 1973, the humanist philosophy is deliberately and aggressively atheistic and man-centered, presenting itself as an alternative religion, and actually being recognized as a religion by the United States government in 1961.

What does secular humanism teach?What are the implications of secular humanist beliefs?

While the teaching can be simply expressed, its implications are deep and complex:

About God:

[1] If there is no God, then the Bible is not His word and Jesus is not His Son.

[2] If there is not God, then His so called commands are not valid.

[3] If there is not God, no Word of God and no command, then there is no sin.

[4] If there is no sin then I can decided for myself what is right and wrong.

[5] In fact there is no absolute right and wrong.

[6] If there is no sin there is no need for either a Savior or salvation.

[7] The entire Christian message is redundant and a lie.

About me:I decide what is right for me. Or collectively, we through, our government, legalize behavior which as a society we now accept. In our life time we have seen the government facilitating divorce, recognizing de factoSTUDY
Genesis 11:1-9: an attempt at a humanistic society
Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 4:17-19: the importance of our minds.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

[1] There is a great distinction between secular humanism, described above, and humanitarianism, which is briefly, a commendable, active concern for the well being of humans, especially those who are suffering.

[2] There are a number of terms we need to remember to help us recognize secular humanism within the Church: liberalism and modernism when applied to the study of the Bible indicated a rejection of the supernatural and of the divine origin of the Bible. Situational ethics indicates a rejection of the Biblical absolutes of right and wrong.
