Humanism

<<man without God>>

The basis of humanism is that it considers humans first and foremost, and by their own ability, have all the answers to understand life and so do not need help or salvation from God. It totally rejects God’s authority and any accountability to Him, believing that we are gods with the Bible even stating, "The fool has said in their heart there is no God" (Ps 14:1). This secular philosophy is trying to erase every reminder of Christianity from society, including replacing creation with evolution. Values are eroded by liberalizing what is acceptable to degenerate minds instead of measuring everything against the standards of God’s Word. Rather than loving the truth, the lie is accepted with man departing further from the Light and a living relationship with the Lord (Rom 1:18-32; 2 Thes 2:10-12).  While the human mind has tremendous potential even if it operates independently of God, it can be enhanced so much more when inspired by the creator of the universe.

The ‘New age’ is an example of a humanistic belief system.
