The essence of humanism (sometimes referred to as secular humanism) is the removal of anything religious and putting in its place the worship of man. Humanism is not new. It is as old as man's rebellion against God - man's diminished view of God and man's elevated view of himself. Man becomes supremely important and becomes the center of all things. God is relegated to a myth, or, at best, a secondary and unimportant aspect of life.
"The humanist movement is an international organization formed by people of different ages, origins, culture and religion, united by the project to build a truly human society. A society in which the human being, with his needs and aspirations, is the central value. A society in which human rights are completely realized: the right to health, instruction, freedom, spirituality, search for the meaning of life, and an existence with dignity."

We believe that the humanist philosophy turns the truth on its head. God IS supremely important and the center of all things. Man is not! Choosing to ignore or to reject that truth has eternal consequences.
