Or why it’s tempting to live as if God doesn’t exist.
Craig Gay explains. And this was written in 1998. My pastor in Melbourne actually predicted that humanism will be the world’s biggest religion today. And he’s right. It’s full-blown now. Pretty much everything that you do in the name of “practical atheism” could be easily justified because it’s second nature in our culture. Wait, no… it’s actually our first instinct. That which drives us to make choices and decisions in order to achieve something because it’s needed in our quest for survival in our post-modern (or whatever) world. At the expense of everything else that doesn’t link with reaching our goals. Even spirituality has become practical. Which accounts for the rise in its popularity these days.
To what end will this secularism of society go?
I don’t know.
But I think somehow the God of the Universe would definitely get our attention. He always has a way.
