"Humanism, as described by divineless thought is far more dangerous than a cult. Cults consist mainly of those who have tendencies to follow after a personality, a spiritual leader. Cultist are enamored with the teachings, mannerisms of an individual and are not invested in finding the truth of the scripture. The cult follower can be reached much easier than the humanist because the humanist has devised a system that has already denied God and the cultist is still open to God.
The most consequential mistake a person can make is that of humanism, because humanism is anti-God. Humanism is a work of satan and since the humanist do not give satan any place because satan is a spiritual being, they deny satan's existence also. Humanist do not recognize their mindset creator.
Those who elevate themselves above God, humanist, do so at great peril, not because God retaliates or does anything against them, but because they are working with only a portion of their ability/capacity. It is like they are in a fight with their hands tied behind their back. Those who elevate themselves above God shall surely reap the consequences of operating in a spiritual world only using the natural elements. It is like putting a model airplane together in the dark.
If you can honestly say, "the devil made me do it," you are far better off than if you say, "self made me do it," for without Christ self is the end of the lineage. I know you have heard the term lukewarm Christian, but this term is not biblical. Lukewarm refers to those who are dabbling with God, like a cat with a mouse. They are the decidedly undecided. They do not recognize Christ as Savior. They have made no profession of faith. They have made the decision to exclude God because they believe God is an unnecessary thought, an avoidable influence, an unwarranted risk or that God does not exist at all. It is a decision and that is why it has so much influence in the life of the humanist/lukewarm.
That is the beauty and the beast of free will. The beauty is that you can come to God and receive all that God offers and with just an open mind and an open heart receive treasure troves of blessings. But you can also deny God and abandon the idea of receiving anything from God and live on and move forward without the influence of the Holy spirit. It is empty and vain, but many have chosen to become lukewarm.
What can you do for those who have chosen to deny God? Well this could take a while, but to make a long story short: Paul said, "For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as to under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law of Christ,) that I might gain them that are without the law. To the weak became I weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some." 1 Cor. 9:19-22
If you want a child to understand you, you get down real low and you smile and look them in the eyes and speak their language. You become like a child to reach a child. You become like a lukewarm person to reach a lukewarm person (not in absence from God but under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.)
