What We’re Up Against

All Christians ought to read Humanist Manifesto II (https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/manifesto2/), to see what we’re up against.

True, every pack of douchebags has a “manifesto,” starting with the the Communist Manifesto itself. But that’s no reason not to take it seriously. These are dangerous douchebags, with academic creds galore and all kinds of prestige. They and their kind have soaked into the institutions of Western civilization and corrupted it. So read what they have to say for themselves.

Here’s their sales pitch. You give up God, because He isn’t real, and all that “unproved and outmoded” religion stuff like forgiveness of sins, redemption, the hope of eternal life, the hope of justice and the hope of mercy–you give that up, see, and transfer your hope and trust and allegiance to us, The Smartest People in the World.

In return, we’ll give you goodies like you won’t believe! “Using technology wisely,” because Science, don’t you know, has all the answers, we’re gonna end war, end poverty, wipe out disease, drastically increase the human life-span, provide everyone with fantastic jobs that they really like, and even “direct the course of human evolution”–I mean, how cool is that? Just give us the power, give us the money, and we will do all these things that God shoulda done but He didn’t because there is no God, etc.

That’s the deal. Like, really–a baby in a manger? You gotta be kiddin’! Prayers? Oh, come on!

But we know what we wind up with when we turn away from Jesus Christ, our only Savior and our rightful King. We’ve seen them break their eggs to make their omelets: only the omelet never gets made, and the landscape is littered with gulags and mass graves and prisons.

They ask us to worship them as gods, claiming to be able to do all the things–eventually, at least, through Science–that God should be able to do. Since Manifesto2 was written, they’ve also cooked up a Climbit Change apocalypse and promised to Save The Planet from it… if we’ll just give them that world government that they’ll need to do the job.

Read history.

What they never fail to give us, these Smartest People in the World, is cruelty, folly, shame, and failure. Those are the gifts of fallen man, cumbered by Original Sin.

All good gifts come from God, and only from Him. The humanists’ “Good without a god” slogan is surely the biggest single line of fat-headedness ever written.

There is no good apart from God. Period.

    There’s a book called Darwin’s House of Cards and towards the last chapters it discusses some of the social implications of evolutionary theory. When Marxism collapsed in 1989 they were quick to find something new, in this case environmentalism seemed to be the cause du jour, leading directly to climate-gate, etc. One conclusion the author made was that these various theories and causes will not stand the test of time and eventually be revealed for what they are. Even Darwin’s ideas are facing scrutiny.

    World War 1 was supposed to be the war that ended all wars, that didn’t happen. In the early 20th century they predicted there would be a cure for everything from cancer to the common cold, that hasn’t happened. But they still believe they can have utopia, and the fantasy is what drives them. Those godless philosophies are responsible for the all the atrocities of the 20th century, and I fear that the 21st century will be much worse.

    Humanists are followers of Satan’s lie in the Garden of Eden, and Christians are followers of the truth revealed in the Word of God. The Kingdom of God is like a field of wheat that has been invaded by tares. They\ wheat and tares grow together and it can be difficult to tell them apart, but on the last day of this age the angels will come and separate the crop. Our Lord Jesus calls us to perseverance to the end.
