The Cosmic Conspiracy: Part Two
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
(Genesis 3:1-5 ESV)
Secularism leaves the soul empty. As western society has begun to turn from it Christian roots, we have lost our moral compass. The door for the "new spirituality" has been open wide, this spirituality is made up of a smorgasbord of world religions. The new spirituality has very few moral restraints. It says that we are gods and creates a worldview that supports the desire to be gods (The Genesis 3 lie). Every empty soul desires to be filled with something, and gurus from the east have found gullible westerners to buy their promises of enlightenment. But all they really offer is spiritual darkness, disguised as light.
When a society is void of the true knowledge of God it opens itself up to cosmic powers of demonic origins. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us that we are all sinful and that we all need a Savior. And instead of being gods, we are desperately in need of Divine intervention. The only hope for spiritual people or atheist is a Savior, other than themselves. The claims of Jesus are exclusive but actually all religious and secularist claim exclusivity in one form or another. As western society tries to shed what it sees as outdated religious traditions of the past, we continue to slip into unfathomable spiritual darkness.
Humanity has proven it's depravity. We need deliverance, and that's why Jesus came into the world, to save us from our sin. The sin of idolatry, which is ultimately worship of ourselves. - Bobby
