Human Suffering... and First Things First

Modernism grows out of religious humanism. A Modernist lives by his feelings like other selfish people, but the desires that may seem to move him most are the needs of the sick, uneducated, poor and hungry. And who is not touched by human need? How noble such efforts seem, even when a man merely uses human plight to gratify his selfishness or appease his conscience. What a tragedy that such deeds of giving can be used as excuses for not doing the first thing God asks of a man; surrender to Christ. Although Modernism has attempted many needed relief and social programs that have been of help to the world, it has helped keep alive a terrible lie, that man can make it to perfection and purity on his own.
