Humanism

Humanism is a many-sided concept that deserves – arguably requires – Christian support.

Although it has been hijacked in recent decades to mean effectively ‘atheism’, its richer meaning outlines a commitment to the ‘human’, including rationality, dignity and moral realism.

These are all ideas, however, that in the modern world, find their origins in Christian thought and there is good reason to believe that a robust defence of them actually needs Christian faith.
