Briefly: The religion of secular humanism

Just something to consider.  And this will be very brief.  So many times when a Christian takes a stand for their beliefs (whether it be in the political realm, or in a public school, or wherever...) we usually hear something like this from those in authority; "Well, I see your point, but that is a religious view and you can't push your Christian values on others."

I would readily agree that there is NO benefit whatsoever in forcing someone to believe the way I do.  First of all, if I force someone to think that way then they may act in a way that seems to agree with my way of thinking, BUT it doesn't change their minds and views.  It only breeds resentment to a certain extent.

What strikes me as humorous in their argument about impressing values and such is that they fail to realize that they too push their views on Christians (and everyone else).  Make no mistake... unbelievers, atheists, agnostics, pagans, false converts, and all the rest... all of them worship a god figure.  The difference between truly born again Christians and the unbelieving world is that we worship the One true God and they worship themselves.

In the case of secular humanism, which is the predominant religion found in public schools and the government, worships a god... the god is man.  They do what seems "right" to them and love the things that indulge man's covetous, lustful, hateful, self-centeredness.

Christians are not perfect and we are not without sin.  We are not better than other people.  We are simply better off because of the One in whom we trust.

Pray for those who persecute you and continue contending for the truth Christian.  Don't back down and even though the world will hate you, take heart for greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.
