The quote below is from secular humanist, J. Dunphy. After reading it over 10 years ago, this quote more than any other confirmed to me the necessity of teaching the truth of God and His Word to this generation.  Each generation is faced with certain philosophies and teachings that are designed to attack the very essence of our trust in God’s Word. In my opinion, humanism with its evolutionary teachings represents one of the top purveyors of error in the times we live. Evolution is much more than a scientific idea.  If you strip away all of its scientific jargon, in reality,  it is purely a humanist and religious philosophy designed to convey the past, present, and future of mankind apart from the Creator.  It is the antithesis of biblical Christianity.  Unfortunately many Christians do not recognize where the battles of today are taking place, and are unwittingly sending both their children and the flock into the fields without the necessary armor. 

But don’t take my word for it.  If you listen to the true believers of evolutionary philosophies, they will tell you themselves.  The quote below is only one of many to reveal the very real battle over the hearts and minds of mankind.  Praise God that His truth, found solely in His Word and revealed by the power of His Holy Spirit, will set free all who fully seek Him!  John 8:31-32, Jeremiah 29:13

“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being.  These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level — preschool day care or large state university.  The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new — the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith of humanism… 

It will undoubtedly be a long, arduous, painful struggle replete with much sorrow and many tears, but humanism will emerge triumphant.  It must if the family of humankind is to survive.”J. Dunphy, “A Religion for a New Age,” The Humanist, Jan.-Feb.1983.
