Default HUMANISM {Pernicious Satanic Influence In The World Today} [PART #1]

HUMANISM {PERNICIOUS SATANIC INFLUENCE IN THE WORLD TODAY}

[PART #1]

We live in evil times and our culture is, without a doubt, one of the most corrupt and deceptive in the recorded history of mankind. The Bible describes the times we now live in by comparing them with two other particularly evil times:

Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of NOE, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of LOT; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.


An examination of the verses in the Bible regarding the spiritual, moral, and physical condition of the people living in those past times reveals an amazing and startling similarity to conditions in the world at this present time and the deplorable state of the vast majority of the people living on the earth today!

Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Genesis 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.


Genesis 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.

Genesis 18:20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;


Wickedness, evil, and violence are nothing new in the world; they have been in existence on this earth since the fall of Adam and Eve. However, the Bible records two [2] specific times in man’s history when wickedness was exceedingly great; when evil abounded continually in the hearts of men and women; and when violence so filled the earth that God brought forth terrible judgment upon the earth and upon the people who committed all of the above sins.

In Noah’s time God flooded the whole earth with water and destroyed every living thing [with the exception of Noah and his family] that breathed upon the earth because of man’s terrible sinful state.

In the case of Sodom and Gomorrah God rained down fire and brimstone from heaven upon those wicked cities and the surrounding areas and killed every man, woman, and child in them [with the exception of Lot and his two daughters] because of the wicked and grievous sins of the people.

As for today - a comparison of just three (3) of the many popular areas of endeavor: (ENTERTAINMENT -TV, Movies, Radio, Magazines, etc. – The sad lack of character in the majority of the participants and perverse and corrupt content; SPORTS - The obnoxious character of many of the participants and the mean spirited manner in which the games are played; and SCHOOLS - The content of the curriculum and the lack of morals and character of the teachers and administrators) with the same institutions of the 1940’s and 1950’s will demonstrate an obvious and alarming decline in the spiritual and moral character in the people of these United States, to say nothing of the rest of the world.

The popular approval today of the common practice of fornication and the nearly unanimous opinion of adultery as being just an unimportant and harmless offense, is indicative of our spiritual and moral state. The general acceptance by more and more people of Sodomy and Lesbianism as an “acceptable alternative lifestyle” and the fact that anyone who objects to these sins or speaks out against them is now subject to ridicule, censure, and in many western nations – possible prosecution, punishment, or jail, clearly demonstrates that we are living in a very corrupt world.

The catalog of personal sins and offenses are too numerous to list here but the following roster is a representative sample of just a few: The rise in crime in general (murder, rape, assault, robbery, extortion, theft, fraud, embezzlement, etc., etc., etc.); the general acceptance of almost all forms of pornography; the dramatic increase in sex crimes against children; the increase in the use of drugs and alcohol; the increase in divorce; the perverting, corruption and abandonment of traditional marriage and the corresponding destruction of the family. All these sins clearly demonstrate that our present world abounds in wickedness and is only evil continually.

As to the earth being “filled with violence”, we live in one of the most violent countries in the world and in one of the most violent times in recorded history. Murder is commonplace and is being committed for petty reasons; violence in the government schools has risen dramatically; rape is often treated lightly in the so-called “criminal justice system”; the rape of minors and young children is on the increase; and people are assaulted daily for little or no reason. The list of offences could go on and on. However, the offenses listed above are only those which are being committed by individuals. The offenses committed by governments [states] in the last century have exceeded individual offenses by far.

The following quote demonstrates just how violent our present world really is:

“In practice, communism is nothing less than sheer barbarism that makes even the horrors of Naziism pale in comparison. Professor Rudolph J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii outlines that barbarism in his book "Death by Government," a comprehensive detailing of the roughly 170 million people murdered by their own governments during the 20th century. From 1917 to its collapse in 1991, the Soviet Union murdered about 62 million of its own people. During Mao Zedong's reign, 35,236,000, possibly more, Chinese citizens were murdered. By comparison, Hitler's Nazis managed to murder 21 million of its citizens and citizens in nations they conquered. Adding these numbers to the 60 million lives lost in war MAKES THE 20TH CENTURY MANKIND'S MOST BRUTAL ERA."
(Are academic elites communists? By Walter E. Williams - August 16, 2006)

Please keep in mind that the above quote is limited to just the Communist, Fascist, and Nazi atrocities. If we were to include the number of murders, rapes, tortures, and persecutions committed by Dictatorships (on the right & left) and Democracies (of all stripes) in Africa, Asia, and the Americas; and then add the atrocities committed by Muslim Nations throughout the continent of Africa, the Mid East, Asia Minor, Asia, Indonesia and the Philippines; and if we were to add to the list of offenses - the cruel enslavement of millions upon millions of people by all of the governments listed above; we can easily say that in the last century the true scope and volume of violence perpetrated by individuals and by governments upon the people of this earth is incalculable, and in regards to numbers – far exceeds any known time in the recorded history of mankind.

While many American women and abortionists are “free” to exterminate millions of unborn babies, it takes decades to execute a serial killer. While the foulest, most disgusting, dirty, filthy, obscene and truly offensive language is commonly in use throughout the public square, the Ten Commandments are prohibited from being displayed. While teachers are “free” to espouse practically any perverse idea or concept that may come into the heart and mind of degenerate individuals in the so-called “public” (i.e. government) schools, we are prohibited from quoting even one verse from the Bible or freely expressing our faith. While Christian parents overwhelmingly have a deep concern about the genuine welfare of their children, the so-called “family” courts, government social service agencies, and government schools are continually intruding into legitimate family issues and concerns and interfering with parents exercising their lawful (God-given) Constitutional rights.

But why go on with the litany of the obvious moral and spiritual corruption sweeping our country and the world? (And even more tragically – God’s churches) We have reached the point in the history of the world where conditions are such that it is “easy” to practice evil; as a matter of fact we are encouraged (by: the schools, the media, entertainment, etc.) to do so. At the same time it is getting much more difficult with each passing day to walk after the Lord God and to serve Him according to the truth; as a matter of fact we are either being discouraged (by: churches, schools, media, entertainment, etc.) from doing so, or are even being forbidden (by: churches, courts, schools, government agencies, etc.) to do so!

I have at least two more posts on the subject of Humanism. If you want to know what it's all about - look up the Humanist Manifestos I, II, & III on line and get it straight from the horses mouth. Humanists have never been "shy" about their "BELIEFS" and their "GOALS" - On the other hand, (sad to say), most people are completely ignorant of just how successful they have been in implementing them (primarily through "education" & "schooling").
