Today, Wednesday December 30 – Romans 1:21-25 – The Apostle Paul is revealing what will happen to any culture, society or nation that begins to trust in anything else, rather than the God who created them. He calls it, “Exchanging the truth of God for the lie.” The most practiced “religion” in the world today, could rightly be called, “Secular Humanism.” This is not a new religion but literally goes back to the first lie told to the human race in the Garden of Eden. Satan told Eve, that if she disobeyed God and ate the beautiful fruit of the tree, she would become her own god and she could decide what good and what was evil. Every day we must decide whether or not we are going to believe the “Truth of God” and practice living in that Truth, or accept the lie of the evil one and become futile, empty and vain in our thoughts. Anyone who is living a selfish, self-centered life and depending on human efforts to meet human needs, rather than God Himself, is a practicing humanist! And they are being deceived and living a lie. It is so sad that even most people who call themselves Christians, are in reality, practicing secular humanism. Let me ask you a question. How much time do you spend reading, studying and meditating on God’s Word, the Bible? How much time are spending on, watching TV, surfing the internet, or looking at apps on your smart phone? If we are not careful we can easily be drawn into a humanistic life that only leads to confusion and frustration and empty, vain living. As we prepare for a new year, please make a decision to seek the Truth, be grateful and thankful, and every day take time to be in God’s Word! God bless!
