Humanism versus Yeshua
How far are the values of Humanism
from the values espoused by Yeshua?

Updated: 03/28/2020

Love of our fellowmen versus love of God

Yeshua ACTUALLY tried to steer us away from trying to love (care for) God directly or tangibly. He is not now here in a physical form and consequently is not available to be loved tangibly. His words were, "By this shall all men know that you are my followers, that you love one another as I have loved you", and "If you have done it unto one of the least of my brothers, you have done it unto me." Simply put, you can love God only by loving other human beings.

Atheistic humanists don't accept that there is a God and simply espouse loving other humans. Not much difference here on this issue!

Concerning the equality of men

Both Yeshua and atheistic humanists espouse the ultimate equality of men. The United State declaration of Independence states, "We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal." No difference on this issue!

Concerning Self-value and Self-esteem

J said, "I said, you are gods" and "But even the hairs of your head are all numbered."

Concerning truth

J said, "You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free." Both Yeshua and atheistic humanists espouse the value of truth. No difference on this issue except for the extent of truth promised and freedom expected!

Concerning liberty and freedom

J said, "If the son of man set you free you will be free indeed!" Both Yeshua and atheistic humanists espouse the value of liberty and freedom. No difference on this issue except for the extent of freedom expected!

Concerning individual sovereignty

J said, "By what judgment you judge, you shall be judged." Both Yeshua and atheistic humanists espouse the value of individual sovereignty. No difference on this issue!

Concerning loyalty and forgiveness

J said, "By this will all men know that you are my followers, that you love one another as I have loved you." Both Yeshua and atheistic humanists espouse the value of loyalty and forgiveness. Not much difference on this issue!

Concerning ethics

Knowing that the "Golden Rule" was espoused and recorded at least a dozen times before Yeshua lived it and ostensibly reiterated it, the humanist could rightfully say, No difference on this issue!
