What is secular is considered to be the opposite of religion. Secularism is the belief and practice of living one’s life as if the material order were supreme and God does not exist. Any system of beliefs, practices and ethical values is a religion. The United States Supreme Court has identified Secular Humanism as a religion in two separate rulings. By means of the so-called Separation of Church and State, secularists are seeking to remove from our national life every vestige of Christianity, which for over two hundred years has been the foundation and strength of our society. At the same time, Secular Humanism has become the established religion of American public schools where its false tenets are taught.
All false religions seek to impose their beliefs by law upon every person within their domain. Read Daniel 3:1-30; Revelation 13:16, 17. Secular religion is no different. It seeks to overturn laws based on the Word of God and replace them with new laws which everyone must obey. In the place of first amendment rights, political correctness is promoted. To say anything against the evils being legalized by new laws is to be guilty of hate speech. No matter how cold it is, we must all adapt to laws consistent with its belief in man-made global warming.
Unlike false religions, true Christianity does not force everyone to become a Christian by laws. Instead, it proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ to men that they might know He is the only Savior of sinners. Those who hear the gospel, repent of their sins, and trust Jesus Christ become Christians. Instead of being forced to live under strict law, they desire to do His will. Their affections being changed, they live godly, separated lives because they love Him who first loved them (1 John 4:19). Knowing Christ and the truth, they have become free indeed (John 8:32, 36). Freedom exists only where the truth is gladly received.
