I keep coming back to the Humanist Manifesto II–why is it every pack of mountebanks and villains has a “manifesto”?–published in 1973, as the quintessential document of modern evil. Satanism, pseudo-science, statism and globalism: this is where they all come together. This is the devil’s crossroads.
They tell us in the first paragraph that belief in God must be abandoned: “Salvationism, based on mere affirmation, still appears as harmful, diverting people with false hopes of heaven hereafter.”
That’s okay, though. They’ve got an alternative.
“Using technology wisely, we can… alter the course of human evolution and cultural development…” (https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/manifesto2/) Among other things. You name it, technology will do it. Provided it isn’t busy getting hacked, updated, or just not working.
I mention this on a Sunday because we all need to be reminded, from time to time, what we’re up against.
This is spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12) being carried out by its slaves and servants in low places. We are seeing this twaddle played out right before our eyes. No more truth! We are, now, whatever we say we are: we create ourselves from day to day!
Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin…
God’s patience is inexhaustible, but not unlimited. He will not grow weary: He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. But He is righteous, and He will not have this stuff in His Kingdom when Christ comes down again to claim it on the earth.
Of course the humanists claim they want to do good things, like conquer poverty and get rid of disease, abolish war, etc. They always seem to wind up with lots of barbed wire and dead bodies cluttering the landscape, whenever they take power. Their rejection of Almighty God is profound, as anyone but a pluperfect fool can see from their document. To reject God is to reject love. Case closed.
Two death cults confront God’s people in this fallen world: humanism and radical Islam.
And of the two, humanism is by far the more dangerous.
