Last Days Apostasy - Secular Humanism
While doing research for this post I came across the YouTube video above. This video explains Secular Humanism so well that I don't think there is much I can add to it. So I am going to keep the article short.
Secular Humanism, in a nutshell, is a belief system for the non-believer, a religion for Atheists. It offers a relational structure, a sense of identity and a value system, but the value system is based on man's values and moral codes, not God's.
Humanists believe that there is no God, heaven, hell or afterlife. They believe that the physical universe we see around us is all there is and all of man's problems can be solved by science. Humanists replace God's moral standards with their own and replace faith in God with faith in themselves.
The American Humanist Association defines Humanism as: "Humanism is a progressive lifestance that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead meaningful, ethical lives capable of adding to the greater good of humanity." 1
And from the Humanist Society of Western New York, "Humanism is: A joyous alternative to religions that believe in a supernatural god and life in a hereafter. Humanists believe that this is the only life of which we have certain knowledge and that we owe it to ourselves and others to make it the best life possible for ourselves and all with whom we share this fragile planet. A belief that when people are free to think for themselves, using reason and knowledge as their tools, they are best able to solve this world’s problems. An appreciation of the art, literature, music and crafts that are our heritage from the past and of the creativity that, if nourished, can continuously enrich our lives. Humanism is, in sum, a philosophy of those in love with life. Humanists take responsibility for their own lives and relish the adventure of being part of new discoveries, seeking new knowledge, exploring new options. Instead of finding solace in prefabricated answers to the great questions of life, humanists enjoy the open-endedness of a quest and the freedom of discovery that this entails." 1
The rise of Secular Humanism is a part of the great apostasy spoken of in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 and it may well be the one-world religion that is spoken of in the book of Revelation that will be in place in the last days.
Secular Humanism has actually been around and gradually creeping into our society for a long time. It is no longer just the religion of Atheists but it is one of the false teachings invading the church. An increasing number of evangelical churches are embracing humanistic principles and teachings and it has led to a false Christianity. The Emergent Church movement is just one example. It discounts the truth of the Bible and replaces it with the opinion of man, elevating human knowledge and opinion over the word of God. God calls human wisdom foolishness.
The influence of Secular Humanism has led to Prosperity Gospel preachers such as Joel Osteen - Forget about that mansion in heaven and spending eternity in the presence of God, live your best life now. It's what God wants for you. No, what God wants is for you to come to a knowledge of the saving grace of Jesus Christ. "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?" ~ Mark 8:36
Secular Humanism has also permeated our government and public schools and is the primary belief system that is being used to indoctrinate our children. By teaching Humanism they can teach and indoctrinate children into an Atheistic worldview without actually calling it Atheism. For the last few decades children have been taught that the Bible is wrong, there is no God and you are an accident of the universe. The school system is actually teaching a false religion and it is being supported by a godless government and media. The effects can be clearly seen in the mindset of the millennial generation.
These are all signs of the times we live in. The Biblical end of days.
Walking away from God's principles and looking to ourselves to rule ourselves has left us in the mess we are in today. God's moral standards never change, but humanistic moral standards are always being corrupted by Satan.
Satan tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden saying, "Your eyes will be opened and you will be like God", and he continues to tempt us in this way.
Please watch the video above. It's only 20 minutes long and it is something you need to be knowledgeable about as we go into these last days.
God's Plan of Salvation
To those of us who are watching, world events are falling into alignment with Biblical end times prophecy like never before in history, and the pace is accelerating.
In His love and mercy, God has provided a way by which you can escape the judgment He is about to bring upon the world, if you choose too...
The Bible says that many false teachers will arise in the last days and that many people will be led astray. The best way to guard yourself is to know the Scriptures well enough yourself to be able to recognize false teaching when you see it.
Concerning the teaching on this or any other website, I encourage you to search the scriptures for yourself and not just take my word for it. This will help better prepare you to navigate the flood of false teaching that Satan is unleashing upon the world and that will only get worse as we get closer to the end.
