The Curse Of The Secular
There was a time when Western culture had sacred times, places and men. Now we have the secular and everything has become equal and ordinary. The mystery in the world has been taken out of the holy and sacred, leaving us with nothing but the secular or the profane without mystery and without wonder. This is a huge negative because it’s out of wonder and mystery that the celebration of life comes. We celebrate life because of its mystery. Once the mystery is taken out there is nothing left but hollow and empty dogmas’.
For example, we used to dress up for special occasions, but now we have few special occasions and the ones that we have are empty for most people. Everything, everyone and every place is equal, the special has been overcome by the ordinary. The weak, the insignificant and the small have overcome the big and the powerful. The sacred has been destroyed by the ordinary. The curse of secularism has come upon us. Increasingly our language is becoming profane and secular. Nothing is holy, nothing is sacred, all words are profane, which in the end means nothing is important or special because everything is equal. Good is evil and evil is good. Nothing is sacred, all is profane.
Some would say that science has done this but that’s not the case, what really has done it is the ego of man who has made himself larger, and God small, to the point that God has been eliminated from the world of us men. In contrast, true science has proven that the creation is infinitely big and infinitely small beyond the imagination of man. The problem is that science, like religion, has been over powered by the profane and has become secularized. Remember, that early scientist’s were some of the greatest men of faith. Their science was a wellspring of wonder and amazement at the creation of God. Their science came out of wonder, today the science of the secular comes out of doubting. It was not science, that emptied science of faith, but rather it was the secular and profane thinking of the enlightenment which profaned science and culture, and even religion.
It is surprising that atheism and Christianity has one thing in common, both equalize everything. Atheism does it by making everything equally profane and Christianity does it by making everything sacred. Christianity, if I understand it correctly makes everything sacred. All men are sacred, all places are sacred, all truth is sacred and all time is sacred. Therefore, Christianity is a positive force in the world exulting all things to a higher level where unbelief is a negative force reducing everything to the profane, even human life.
If I am correct the secular world is, and will, pay a terrible price for their belief system of the secular. We can begin to see some of the consequences of the secular mind in the atheistic systems of communism and socialism. But the horrors have just begun. The profaning of sexuality, marriage and the family will usher in the complete collapse of civilization as we know it today. It will reduce everything to the level of beasts seeking the lowest common denominator. Secularism is man’s attempt to return to all fours.
