I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith …
Questions – Who said that? What is this “new faith”?
And what does this have to do with what the Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:11?
Answer #1 – who said it – Professor J. Dunphy.
Who is he? The author of “A Religion for a New Age”, which was published in Humanist Magazine.
What is Humanist Magazine? An atheist publication.
How can an atheist publication talk about a new faith? Read on and prepare to be really upset.
Here’s more of the quote at the top of the page –
“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level—preschool day care or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new—the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism.… It will undoubtedly be a long, arduous, painful struggle replete with much sorrow and many tears, but humanism will emerge triumphant. It must if the family of humankind is to survive.”
Note things like this –
- Passionate fundamentalist preachers are rabid – like diseased dogs.
Passionate teachers pushing atheism are showing selfless dedication.
- Preachers – that’s another word for ministers. No matter which word is used, talking about religion by these people in a public school needs to be attacked and stopped.
Teachers – must be ministers of another sort. But still ministers. But this type of minister is not only OK – but must be doing their thing all throughout the school system. Starting at preschool!
- Christianity is a rotting corpse, coming with all sorts of evils and misery.
Humanism is the hope for the future of humankind – and it will merge triumphant.
Why are these things not brought up in courts – and humanism treated for what it really is?
Humanism is a religion.
And that religion is all about destroying people’s faith in God.
And who is most interested in destroying people’s faith in God? Satan.
Therefore, it’s not unreasonable to conclude that humanism is a religion backed by – and worshiping, however much it’s proponents may deny it – Satan.
Not buying that conclusion?
Here’s a quote from “Confession of a Professed Atheist”, by Aldous Huxley –
I had motives for not wanting the world to have meaning; consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption.… For myself, as no doubt, for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneous liberation from a certain political and economic system, and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom.
To tell what that means, here’s a quote from Creation: Remarkable Evidence of God’s Design, by Grant Jeffrey
This remarkable admission reveals that Huxley and his contemporaries’ real reason for their commitment to the philosophy of evolution was to enable them to escape the moral implications of a Universe where God created humans who had a moral response to His decrees. The thought of their ultimate responsibility to their Creator was so hateful that Huxley and his followers did everything in their power to denigrate God, Creation, and the Bible that affirmed that we will all some day stand before our Creator on the day of judgment.
So – if you weren’t buying what I’ve said before – how about now?
And if you’re even a little bit believing that maybe the humanist view is correct in some ways – like that evolution is true and the Bible is wrong about Creation is Genesis – How are you feeling now?
If you’re having doubts about God creating everything – and thinking that maybe evolution is true – how are you feeling about being associated with a belief that was pushed by people for the reasons above?
If you’re calling yourself a Christian – and believing that maybe humanist points of view – like evolution – are you happy that you are part of a movement with one of it’s goals to remove morals and conscience from the public thought – because they want sexual freedom?
Or – are you thinking – this isn’t good.
It’s not good. Remember this –
God’s Wrath Against Mankind
Ro 1:18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
Ro 1:21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
Ro 1:24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Ro 1:26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
Ro 1:28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
You can see how people end up like this.
When we’re in a position of believing the same things as those who are so much against God – we need to be seriously asking – are we going down that road as well?
I mentioned Ephesians 6:11 earlier. Here’s that verse, in context –
The Armor of God
Eph 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
Are you already on the road to believing parts (or all) of humanism?
Do you want to get off that road? Get back on the path to fully and completely believing in the God who created you, rather than pretending you can hide from Him?
Are you so far along that you actually have convinced yourself that you can defeat Him?
The verses in Ephesians 6 tell us how to fight against things like humanism.
If you’re a Christian – do what they say.
If you’re not a Christian – or if you are but need help – find someone who really does believe in God and will pray for you and help you in the way Paul wrote.
If you still not sure – think maybe evolution and the humanist point of view are correct – check this out –
Charles Darwin himself admitted that the intricate engineering displayed in the human eye was so specialized and complex that he could not begin to imagine how the eye might have developed through the evolutionary processes of natural selection.
To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.
That last part is from The Origin of Species, by Charles Darwin. Even he admitted right from the start that there are major issues with evolution.
And why exactly did Darwin write that? Here’s part of Jeffrey’s book that describes how the eye works –
Consider the case of the human eye and ask yourself whether or not such a complex and intricate optical system could ever have developed through random-chance mutation alone. When a baby is conceived in its mother’s womb, the genetic DNA code governing the eye programs the baby’s body to begin growing optic nerves simultaneously from both the optic center of the brain and from the eye. A million microscopic optic nerves begin growing from the eye through the flesh toward the optical section of the baby’s brain. Simultaneously, a million optic nerves, with a protective sheath similar to a fiber-optic cable, begin growing through the flesh towards the baby’s eye. Each of these one-million optic nerves must find and match up to its precise mate to enable vision to function perfectly.
We are generally impressed when highway engineers are able to correctly align two thirty-foot-wide tunnels dug from opposite sides of a mountain to meet precisely in the center of the mountain. However, every day, hundreds of thousands of children are born with the ability to see, their bodies having precisely aligned one million separate optic nerves from each eye to meet their matching optic-nerve endings growing out from the baby’s brain. Anyone who thinks this miracle of design happens by chance probably still believes in Santa Claus. It astonishes the mind of anyone who begins to contemplate the scientific research that has been conducted on the eye’s amazing construction and activity. The degree of complexity displayed in the construction of the various parts of the eye makes the evolutionary theory that it “evolved over millions of years by tiny chance mutations” an absolute impossibility.
Grant Jeffreys’ book is full of examples of things like this. Things in nature that are so far beyond belief as far as having evolved, it’s extremely difficult to see how any honest person can claim to believe in them. Unless they really don’t want to – and are willing to lie to avoid having to admit the truth.
Is that the kind of company you want to keep?
Although many people are unaware of the conflict, a war is taking place today for the hearts and minds of millions of adults and children over whether or not we can rationally believe the Genesis account of Creation. The faith of millions of Christians in the authority and promises of the Bible is at stake. This topic is vital to all who wish to come to terms with the authority of the Bible because the Scriptures clearly teach that God created the heavens as well as the Earth, and He ultimately created man in His own image. This biblical doctrine of Creation that is taught from Genesis to Revelation is in fundamental contradiction to the atheistic theory of evolution that denies the existence of God and claims that man lives in an accidental Universe without purpose, plan, or design. If evolution is true, then the Bible and the words of Jesus Christ are false. It is as clear as that. However, if the Bible’s account of Creation is true and Christ’s acknowledgement of Adam is true, then evolution is false”.
Is your faith built on a foundation of sand, like the image at the top – like the humanists and the things they support, like evolution?
Or is your faith firmly on the foundation laid by the Bible?
If things like this are affecting your own faith – it’s time to do something about it.
If you have kids – of any age – they are going to be taught these things. They are going to be a captive audience to these “ministers” of this “new faith”. Who is going to counter that?
If not you, then who is going to save them from going down this false road to believing Satan’s lies and turning against God?
Ge 3:1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
Satan is crafty. Are you?
You should be.
Matthew 10:16 I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.
We have all been warned.
What are you doing about it?
