Creeping Humanism

“Humanism is the second oldest religion known to man.  It goes back to the Garden of Eden…Its first article of faith is the belief that all things, including every word from God, must be put to the test of man’s reason and experience:  ‘Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?’ “  R.J. Rushdoony

Humanism is the belief that all things exist for man’s good and betterment, and therefore man determines right and wrong; Christianity is the belief that man exists for God, and as such, He knows what is best for us.  (The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.)
The two are antagonistic in nature.  But there is a MAJOR problem…many Christians have unknowingly begun to follow the doctrine of humanism, wounding the body of Christ, rendering themselves impotent–and even worse–accomplice to man’s destruction.

Satan tempted Eve with the power to “be as gods, knowing good and evil”.  Never has the church been so divided about truth, and more and more pastors are falsely teaching that truth is relative, and we can determine for ourselves what constitutes good and evil rather than looking to the laws of God given to us for instruction and life.

It’s difficult to simply make a list of how humanism has infected us. We may be tempted to point the finger at others–you know, the biggies like the churches who have ordained homosexual pastors, and recognize the humanism there.  But if we look closely, we may see it in our own lives.
