Humanism, what is it?

Humanism-A Revolutionary Danger.
In society today, we are surrounded with concepts like psychology and philosophy. We have learned of theorists like Sigmund Freud and Karl Jung. Freud tried to tell us about psychotherapy and Jung advocated spiritualoism. All this has resulted in a confused worldview—so confused, in fact, that students in Christian schools are not well grounded in their faith.
What is happening in schools today to make our children and grandchildren have such a confused worldview? In 1961, in a court case called Torcelo versus Watkins, Atheistic Humanism was established in the US as a state church. Humanism is related to cultism, occultism, atheism, and liberal theology. In 1969, actress Jane Fonda spoke to Massachusetts Uni versity and said if they would study Communism, that they would hope and pray that they would soon become Communists. Karl Marx was a professed Christian who turned atheist and formed Communism.
Statistically, it looks bad when our schools will teach Hinduism and Islam, but forbid the mention of Jesus Christ. According to the Humanist Manifesto I, the original one, which was written and signed in 1933, and later revised to make it more “palatable” to the masses, it is a product of many minds. It was designed to represent a “Developing point of view”, and “not a new creed”, although it has become a creed to politics, the schools and some churches.
Humanism denies creation and that man is in the image of God. It refers to man’s development according to a process, which probably means that they advocate the theory of evolution. They hold an organic view of life and reject that the mind has a spiritual side to it at all. Humanism leans toward anthropology, which considers religion as a means of explaining the origin of things and nothing more. Thus, they render unacceptable anything cosmic or supernatural. Humanism therefore insists that the way to determine the existence and value of realities is by means of “intelligent inquiry” and by their assessment of their relation to human minds.
Do we wonder why people in education and other realms are so confused? Parents are bringing up their kids and teachers have to teach according to this stuff. Humanists deny theism, deism, modernism, and all the varieties of new thought. They justify the removal of prayer and even the mention of God or Christ in the schools by eliminating the emotional aspects of reverence to the supernatural.
The top insult of Humanism is that they think that the religious forms and ideas of our forefathers are “no longer adequate” as if God has suddenly left the picture completely. I experienced some of this in a cult that God brought me out of, and I want the rest of the world to know about this.

More on the Homeless Man.

The book I was reading was one about social issues, and it took place in the Eastern USA. The homeless man met Debbie, who had a mission in life to take care of homeless people in a shelter, providing meals, clothing and understanding. Debbie developed cancer, which went into remission once or twice, and in the meantime her husband was getting to know this homeless man. She finally got it really bad and after a lot of pain, passed away from it, but her husband and this homeless man continued her ministry and wrote this book that I was reading.

I think if you write Women of Faith, they might still have some, and it only cost me eight dollars.

I am just looking through my blogs and editing them.

It looks as if a lot of my links are no longer available, so I have to make things better on my posts. I am deleting things that no longer work and putting text in as I see fit. My life is better now than it was in 2005; I am no longer married to Doug, who saw fit to divorce me when I ran out of the money to support him in the style that I was previously. I married my best friend in 2012, and he used to be a friend of Doug's, but now is a friend of mine, and my husband. We both write, and I help him with his and he helps me with mine. A lot of times I use his computer when mine does not work right or something. I know a lot about technology, but sometimes I download the wrong thing,and have to fix it extensively. But you know, when things are down, and times are tough, I think of my blessings, and thank God that I am here. I don't count sheep, either. Just blessings. If you are in doubt of anything, all you have to do is reflect on the bad times, and the good times are here right now, and all is good.

I was reading about a homeless man

I am reading a book about a man who was not a slave because slavery was supposed to be abolished, but guess what? They still treated blacks as if they were. He tells in the book about fixing the flat tire of a white woman, and three white boys come and tie a grass rope around his neck and try to hang him and the woman stood there and did nothing. Then he told about jumping a freight car and going to Texas, where he was treated worse, and that was the end of chapter one. Come up to today, he meets a woman named Debbie, who made him talk about all this, and I fell asleep at this point.

More later about this.

Thinking about Children

The feelings of a child; how a child sees himself perceived in relation to siblings, how he or she sees himself in relation to his or her peers, is how he or she is going to value him or her self in life. So if a parent places value on a child who has been born with life threatening defects, and once that child is through those crises, still puts that child’s welfare over that of his or her siblings, those other children are going to see themselves as lesser beings than this child who is esteemed over the rest. This is only one example.

A mother has lots of problems in childbirth; the labor is two days or more. The child is born less perfect, and cannot develop very fast due to being born less than perfect. It is in the 1940s and diagnoses are less than perfect, so the child never gets help for whatever the problem is. Then five years later, another one is born; a perfect child with blond hair and blue eyes. Remember, it is the 1940s, and the Nazis are putting value on blond hair and blue eyes. What is going to happen to the child who was born less than perfect with brown hair and brown eyes. This is another example.

Let’s say these kids g row up and the one who was born less than perfect, and the one who is perceived as lesser than the one whose life was in danger, go through things which simply make things worse. They go through stages of bad habits, stages of loneliness, stages of resentment. They go through stages of being perceived by others as if they were lesser beings because of the way they are perceiving themselves. This may result in bad relationship choices. This may result in behavior issues. This may result in vandalism or other violent acting out.

The following is a parable from the Bible. So far in the story, a man's son had done some really bad things; he had squandered all his dad's money, he had come into the face of poverty, and he had come back, begging his dad for forgiveness, and his dad had granted it, and had ordered a celebration for his son had returned to him. We come in to see what happened.

Luk 15:25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musicand dancing.

Luk 15:26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.

Luk 15:27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.

Luk 15:28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and entreated him.

Luk 15:29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:

Luk 15:30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.

Luk 15:31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.

Luk 15:32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, andis alive again; and was lost, and is found.

Can we see how this other son might feel today? The Bible does not say that the father was favoring one son over the other. In fact, the father responds that this son is ever with him and all that he has is his. So the father is saying that there are no favorites here. Today, we should check ourselves to see if in some way we have favored one child over the other, maybe for a reason which we think is valid; for we may have had pain in bearing one of them, or problems keeping one of them well. Do we tend to place blame where it doesn’t belong? Do we tend to neglect situations where we feel we have no control?

I wrote this today, because God put it in my heart to write it, and disseminate it to as many as I could. May God place this information into your hearts to do the same.

A Beautiful Story a

A Beautiful Story about the Meaning of Christmas.

There once was a man who was a good husband and father, who always provided for his family, but he just could not accept someone coming down from Heaven, becoming a man, and saving a world of  humans from sin.  He wanted to be honest about it, so when his wife and children wanted to go to church on Christmas Eve, he said he could not be a hypocrite, and so, although he would be waiting for them to come home from church, he would not go with them.

They left, and he said good bye to them, and then he sat down to read his newspaper.  After a while the snow began to fall.  Suddenly he heard thump, thump, thump, on the picture window, and thought it was children throwing snowballs on the window.  He went out to tell them to stop, when as he walked outside into the weather, he saw it was a flock of birds wanting to get into the house to keep warm as it was very cold.  They were hitting the glass, thinking it was not there.  He said, “I must do something for these birds, for they are cold and need to keep warm.”  He opened up the barn, and tried to get them to go into it, but they would  not go.  He put bread crumbs down to attract them to go in, but still they would not go.  He even tried to chase them in, but they would not go.  Then, he thought, “If I only could become a bird, I could save these birds.”  Just as he was thinking that, the church bells began to ring, sounding the message of Christmas.  This man suddenly realized the full meaning of Christmas, that God sent His Son down to become a man to save us, just as he wished he could become a bird to save these birds.  The man fell to his knees, and accepted Christ just then.

If our greatest need were for information,
God would have sent an educator.
If our greatest need had been for technology,
God would have sent a scientist.
If our need were for money,
God would have sent a banker of financier.
If our need were for entertainment,
God would have sent an entertainer.
But our greatest need was none of these.
Our problem was sin and our need was forgiveness,
And therefore, God sent a Savior.

This is my prayer for all of us

Today I pray that we all are well, and have the victory over the demons in our lives in the name of Jesus Christ. We need to know that our lives belong to God and are directed by Him and we can have the victory over Satan and his demons. It is so important that we don’t continue patterns which we have grown up with if they are harmful to ourselves and others. We need to always be in prayer about this. God will help us with this if we pray in the name of Jesus Christ and trust in Christ to point us in the right direction in doing His Will. We can stand victorious over sin in our lives and then we can pray for the rest of our families to gain this victory for themselves. I pray for this for all of us.
