What the Bible says about Humanism
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Pornography is an intricate part of false religion which sets up man as the object of worship. The pagan religions of the ancients had their obelisks (phallic symbols), temple prostitutes, and fertility rights. In the end, this is just a form of humanism, the worship of the human body and mind. "Humanism," according to a former president of the American Humanist Association, "is a polite term for atheism." Simply put, humanism is man trying to be God.

Today, humanism, a fixture in our public schools and government, is the fundamental principle of our civilization. It is this idea that changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man. . . .

Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. . . . And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting. (Romans 1:23-24, 28)

Today's pornography—whether photographs, videos, statuary, paintings, erotic literature, or "performance art,"—is nothing more than a modern adaptation of age-old idolatry. It is, plain and simple, the adoration of the human form accompanied by the sinful practices it is bound to generate. Soon the bell will toll in righteous judgment for those who engage in pornography, for Paul writes, "Those who practice such things are worthy of death" (verse 32).
