“The cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be” – Carl Sagan
Secularism is a worldview bound up entirely by the limits of the material universe, by what we can see, touch, weigh, and measure. There is only now. Only what we can quantify or observe is counted as reality.
R.C. Sproul said this, “For secularism, all life, every human value, every human activity must be understood in light of this present time… What matters is now and only now. All access to the above and the beyond is blocked. There is no exit from the confines of this present world. The secular is all that we have. We must make our decisions, live our lives, make our plans, all within the closed arena of this time; the here and now.”
The Apostle Paul urged us to reject secular thinking. To fight against the wisdom of this world. Making every effort to stand in the truth of God’s revelation concerning our salvation. We are as “thinking Christians” bound to stand in our being called, chosen, and eternally redeemed by the will of an infinite God. “Do not be conformed to this world…”
There is more than now.
But as it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love him’. But God has, through the Spirit, let us share his secret. 1 Corinthians 2:9
