How does the Christian Spirit differ from the Secular Humanist spirit?


 
 

Lately, we have been hearing more and more about the glorification of the human spirit. To a member of the New Age, Atheist, Agnostic, and Humanistic religions, the human spirit (or even an evil spirit) is the source of salvation and revelation. The intellectuals are put forward as the prophets of New Age, Atheist, Agnostic, and Humanistic religions, although they are false prophets. There is another Spirit that is available to any person who will receive Him. This Spirit is the Spirit of God; it is the Spirit of Christ. All of New Age, Atheist, Agnostic, and Humanistic religions are led and empowered by the human spirit or worse. All of those who are following Jesus Christ are led and empowered by the Holy Spirit.

John 7
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39 (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given;

Two Spirits

The human spirit, its violence is plain to see now.
Its 'righteous' anger justifying sin.

The Holy Spirit, His fruit spring forth in all who follow.
Let those who have been born now walk in Him.



The human spirit, all violence proceeds from this source.
With faulty reason, vile acts defends.

The Holy Spirit, all love and peace proceeds from this Source.
He is the Christ, the power of God within.



The human spirit, It feeds on envy. Full of malice!
It reaches out exalting thoughts of self.

The Holy Spirit, He moves in mercy. How He loves us!
He moves in love through those who yield themselves.



The human spirit, it has a usurped power destructive.
It makes demands for "rights" and privileges.

The Holy Spirit, His power is God's power within us.
Self-sacrifice marks all who now are His.



The human spirit, it points its finger and accuses.
It thanks its God for all its righteousness.

The Holy Spirit, He looks for fruit meet for repentance.
And contrite minds that ask Him to forgive.



The human spirit, it brings attention to its own self.
It loves itself. Its selfish ways are known.

The Holy Spirit, He always points the way to Jesus.
He speaks of Christ, exalting Him alone.



The human spirit, it speaks of its own puffed up virtue
It seeks to prove that it is good and right.

the Holy Spirit, He speaks of that which is true virtue.
He points the way from darkness to the LIGHT.



The human spirit, its so deceptive; who can know it.
It uses pseudo-science to tell lies.

The Holy Spirit, He looks for willing hearts who hear Him.
He speaks only of Truth from up on High.



The human spirit, the power of the human psyche.
They work together in hypocrisy.

The Holy Spirit, The power of the Holy Father.
He is the One Who sets the captives free.



The human spirit, it tries to find some human method.
The human ways where all confusion lurks.

The Holy Spirit, He points the way to Gods own methods.
And from God's Word reveals the way that works.



The human spirit, it claims to have attained all fullness.
It seeks to show that it is good and blessed.

The Holy Spirit, He urges all to come to fullness.
He urges us to press on toward His rest.



The human spirit, it claims that there is no Truth for us.
It looks to made-up lies to build its tower.

The Holy Spirit, He points the way, the way to Jesus.
For Jesus is the Truth; in Him is power.



The human spirit, it speaks of human effort working.
It tries to use the self to bring reform.

The Holy Spirit, He simply brings us to The New King.
The King of kings in all who are reborn.



The human spirit, it thinks it sees with understanding.
It's blind with no capacity for sight.

The Holy Spirit, His hope sees just what God is doing.
The King of kings, we seek with all our might.

Ungodly people base their thinking on presuppositions, which are mere simple-minded assumptions. These act as filters and a way to censor out any information that supports the existence of God.  They set up a web of rules to filter out God.  They will only accept those things that conform to Naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism.  Naturalism claims that God does nothing.  Materialism claims that there is no God or spiritual realm.  Uniformitarianism claims that there was not creation and that there was no catastrophic worldwide flood, as the Bible and numerous other historical accounts record. 

Followers of Christ base their thinking on God's unfolding Revelation. God leads. They follow. He unfolds the meaning of Scripture to them. They receive it from Him.

Whatever the ungodly observe that does not conform to their complex filter is automatically censored.  The way that it is censored can take several forms.  The ungodly may boldly proclaim that, though the data appears to support God's version and refute the version of the ungodly, yet it still must be interpreted to mean just the opposite of what it does mean.  A backup method that ungodly people use is to prophecy that in the future, science will be able to explain what they see as an anomaly.  If that fails, they will hide the data, set it aside, or lie to keep the public from knowing the truth.  The data clearly demolishes the story of the ungodly and clearly supports the reality of the Creator God, His Bible, and His abiding Presence in His people.  When confronted with the obvious, a closed-minded ungodly person says, "I can't understand it."  They are willingly ignorant because they refuse to hold God in their knowledge.  The reality is that these people, for whatever reason, don't what to know the Creator.  They don't want to truly know Jesus, their Creator.
