Liberals May See the Truth, But Refuse to Accept It

Lawrence Auster refuses to let a prominent liberal spokesman walk away from the inescapable implications of his own thought process.

  1. Humanism makes man his own standard of measure. However, as with all measuring systems, a standard must be greater than the value measured. Based on preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appetites, desires, feelings, emotions, and glands.

    Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament, cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist lacks a predictive capability. Without instinct or transcendent criteria humanism cannot evaluate options with foresight and vision for progression and survival.

    Lacking foresight, man is blind to potential consequence and is unwittingly committed to mediocrity, averages, and regression - and worse.

    Humanism is an unworthy worship.

    The void of human ignorance can easily be filled with a functional faith while not-so-patiently awaiting the foot-dragging growth of human knowledge and behavior. Faith, initiated by the Creator and revealed and validated in His Word, the Bible, brings a transcendent standard to man the choice-maker. Other philosophies and religions are man-made, humanism, and thereby lack what only the Bible has: 1.Transcendent Criteria and 2.Fulfilled Prophetic Validation.

    The vision of faith in God and His Word is survival equipment for today and the future. selah
