Secularism is not only a failed worldview but an inconsistent one. Without God nothing makes sense. This is not more apparent then when viewed through secularism.
I know many who claim abortion is not murder because it’s not a baby in the womb. They call it a fetus which of course leads to more irony because that very word means “little person.” Then they have a “baby” shower and throughout the course of their pregnancy they call it “their baby.” Truthfully they know it’s a baby but they have to deny it because they want to kill it without feeling as though they are a bad person.
The reason is that we all know that murder is wrong. God has commanded it and He has revealed it to us. We all have this knowledge but we suppress the truth because we love our sin. The Bible has already declared this to be true.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.” (Romans 1:18)
The word “hold” in that verse means to “suppress.” We as sinners suppress the truth because we love unrighteousness. People love the freedom to murder other human beings and so they dehumanize them in order to ease their conscience. If we found a microscopic organism on Mars we would call it life on Mars yet we deny the life in the womb and thus us the inconsistency of secularism.
I meditated on this when I attended a baby shower for an unsaved family member. This person is completely behind the trans-gendered movement. She would say that gender is decided by a person and they have the right to express it however they decide.
The problem is that her baby shower was all in pink. I pondered that throughout the day. She even had a “gender reveal” celebration. From her own worldview she would agree you have no right to decide someones gender or to have them express it a certain way.
In spite of that her she was determining her baby was a female and celebrating it in pink. The truth is that she knows there are only two genders assigned at birth and she knows it’s appropriate for them to be expressed certain ways. She sins against her own conscience to hold a secular worldview and sins against that worldview at the same time.
The point is that the secular worldview will always violate itself because it’s inconsistent. The secularist must borrow from the Christian worldview to even accuse me of being wrong because wrong requires absolute truth and law presupposes a lawgiver. The truth is that people who hold to this madness called secularism do so because they want to deny the One who might hold them accountable.
It is a cry of autonomy that does not exist. It’s a myth that will one day be revealed as such. It seeks to deny that there is a day coming when we will answer for how we live. A hatred for God is the sole motivation. If you hold this worldview I urge you to turn from such madness and submit yourself to the righteousness of God found in Jesus Christ.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” (Romans 1:16-22)
