Secular Humanists do not believe in God. David Noebel, in “Understanding the Times” quotes Paul Kurtz, a leading Secular Humanist, as bluntly saying “Secular Humanists may be agnostics, atheists, rationalists, or skeptics, but they find in sufficient evidence for the claim that some divine purpose exists for the universe.” To believe in a God would shatter the whole Humanist platform, that includes ideas such as the concept that all men are infinitely good, and will someday reach the fullness of their potential for perfection. To believe in a God would be to admit that there was ‘something’ was better then man.
Another key thing that is evident with humanists’ denial of God is that with no higher deity, man becomes the final authority in making decisions. This concept is extremely pleasing to the Secular Humanist platform, for with man as the final authority, there is unlimited freedom to do anything.
Marxists have a similar view on theology. They believe that once the lower classes over come the higher classes, they will reach perfection. A God does not fit into this picture, because they, like Secular Humanists, believe they are the ultimate authority.
Cosmic Humanists, on the other hand, believe that everything is god, and god is everything. Their basic theology is pantheism, and they feel that people will ultimately reach god-hood, once they are in step with their inner goodness.
Biblical Christians believe that there is one God who is in three parts, called the Trinity. There is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Christians believe that men are sinful, and that sin leads to death. The only way that you can escape eternity in hell is by accepting the gift God gave you, when he sent Jesus to die for us, wiping away the darkness of our sins.
