Humanism is very popular in today’s world.
Self-Help programs, books and philosophies are all around you. Humanism is all about making your self better. Make more money, have better relationships, self, self, self, etc. Guess who gets left out of the picture? The Gospel Message and turning from sin. Many people do not want to give God control over their lives because then they would have to make radical changes in their lives. What they spend their time on, what they read, etc.
I used Humanism myself but ultimately found the Truth of Jesus Christ. Humanism opened the door for me to understand what the Bible & Jesus teach. Read these scriptures after praying that the Holy Spirit would guide your understanding of His Holy Word.
2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.
7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”
11 She said, “No one, Lord.”
And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
Many people heard Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount but few accepted the message.
Humanism teaches that if I can do enough good deeds, I will gain entrance to eternal life. Jesus teaches us that if you have ever had anger in your heart, you have broken the Law about not committing murder.
Every single one of us is guilty. We need a bridge back to God and the Bible clearly tells us that Jesus is the Light of the World. No one comes to the Father, accept through Jesus.
Jesus Cleanses a Leper
8 When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. 2 And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”
3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
Guess who the Leper is? It is me and anyone that sins. There is good news. The great Paradox in Life is that when you give your Life to Jesus Christ, you will have an Abundant Life Full of Joy and Peace. God Blesses the People Who Follow the Lamb of God.
