The Religion of Secularism

Seems to me that secularism is a religion. It deifies the state or self. It has two sacraments: abortion and homosexual "marriage," which point to and enable our right to be our own little gods. It considers the great problem of individuals to be guilt, which we should never have. It has a plan of salvation: to save the individual through self-esteem and to save the earth by fighting global warming. It hopes for an earthly utopia, where there is no religion, except secularism, of course!  It's way of living is self-grasping lust for power, wealth and pleasure. It is the exact opposite of Christianity, which it hates more than anything else, even Islam! 

On the other hand, Christianity worships the triune God, who is revealed supremely in Jesus Christ. It has two sacraments: baptism and the Lord's Supper, which point to and enable our union and communion with the crucified and risen Lord. It considers the great problem of individuals to be the objective guilt that has resulted from our sin. It has a plan of salvation: to save the individual through Jesus' objective saving work and the Spirit's subjective inward work of Christ-esteem. It hopes for the utopia of a new heaven and earth. It's way of living is self-giving love in every area of life.  While it is the opposite of secularism and hates the false religion of secularism, it loves those who are blinded by secularism and prays for the salvation of those suffering and reduced by it.
