Thoughts on Humanism versus Jesus
How far are the values of Humanism from the values espoused by Jesus?

Concerning love of our fellows versus love of God

Jesus ACTUALLY tried to steer us away from trying to love 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 Jesus and atheistic humanists espouse the ultimate equality of men. No difference on this issue!

Concerning truth

J said, "You shall know the truth and the truth will set you free." Both Jesus 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 Jesus 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 Jesus 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 Jesus 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 Jesus ostensibly reiterated it, the humanist would say, No difference on this issue!
