The new religion of the new America



   We are living in the new society.  The new America.  The 
   America of the 90's.  An America stepping to the tune of a new 
   religion: humanism.  A religion sponsored by the government and 
   advanced by the press.  Things are different from the way they 
   used to be.  Some things are in fashion and others are out.  
   Homosexuality, perversion, promiscuity, immorality are all in.  
   What is out?  Intolerance, bias, prejudice.  These are the sins 
   of the new religion.  They are the great taboos, the 
   unspeakable crimes.  The upright, right-thinking person is 
   painted by the press and government as an intolerant religious 
   bigot.  The environment has changed.  Now wrong is right and 
   right is wrong.  Evil sits on the throne. 

   Underneath the new religion is a basic assumption: the 
   assumption that all ways are right.  There is no right and 
   wrong.  Everyone's way is equally good.  God is a God of love 
   and mercy, forgiving of all.  A good God, they believe, would 
   never create a hell or condemn anyone to punishment.  Let 
   everyone do his own thing; pass judgment on no one.  All will 
   go to heaven.  This is a far cry from another outlook: the idea 
   that there is only one right way, a narrow way, a way followed 
   by few.   And of a strict God of high standards who cannot 
   tolerate sin ---  a God who is loving and merciful to those who 
   obey and follow him but who holds a hell in waiting for those 
   who do not.  A religion that teaches that there is a select few 
   who follow God, a select few who understand that you cannot 
   follow both God and the ways of sin, that you cannot mix the 
   two.  That to try to do both is self-deception. 



   Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil; that put 
   darkness for light and light for darkness; that put bitter for 
   sweet and sweet for bitter!   Isa. 5:20


   May 1997
