Exposition: One of the serious impacts of secular humanism on Christianity today is the sexual revolution emanating from Alice Bailey’s idea of making sex and abortion free backed by laws. Hence, according to Charles Colson, ‘sex is no longer a sacred covenant, but a mere vehicle of self- expression and pleasure’. These people then flood the social media with pornographic materials to promote insatiable sexual urges.

The church is therefore finding it more difficult to convince young people that sex before and outside marriage is a sin against God. Educational institutions have gradually become more secular and are being used to promulgate secular humanistic ideas to indoctrinate Christians. The Curriculum in schools is being changed even in the basic schools. This also makes the preachers’ work difficult as more efforts are now needed to deprogram these ideologies and re-program their members with the Word of God.

Another effect of secular humanism is church shopping and ‘MacDonald station’ of the gospel. Because of choice making ideology, people now go from church to church to search for pleasurable services and also expect the message to be packaged like Macdonald’s takeaway pack.

Dearly beloved, but the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and teachings of demons (1 Tim. 4:1 NKJV) Do you see these things happening around you? Beware lest anyone rob you through philosophy and vain deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ. Note that God will not lower His standards in our time; no matter what happens around you, try to live up to God’s standard.
