Deuteronomy 6.10-12 – Secularism & its cause
Posted: 5 August 2010 in Deuteronomy

And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not, And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full; Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

The above passage is nothing if not psychologically realistic. When people start to feel comfortable and self sufficient, they start to lose any sense of their dependence upon God. That, more than anything else, is responsible for the widespread secularism in western Europe, and much of the rest of the western world.

Although the churches are forever coming up with initiatives which are supposed to help reverse that situation, the only person really able to effect a cure is God. When it comes, I doubt if anybody today is going to enjoy the experience of having our complacency over turned, anymore than they did in Old Testament times.
