Secularism

It is a modern movement to minimize the sacred and holy. Unfortunately this movement has infected Christianity. One version ("Cream-Puffism") is quite popular among Christians today. This heresy exaggerates the truth that "God is Love" by undermining the truth that "God is Holy and Just." Its promoters claim that since God loves us, we can continue committing our personal sins without any fear of punishment. The Bible verse, "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom." [Psalm 111:10], is either ignored or wished away, along with Hell and Purgatory. Now it is absolutely true that God continues to love thieves and murderers, but He also loves those people who are robbed and killed. Our sins offend God’s love. God loves us so much that He does not force us to love Him in return. He gives us free will. God loves us so much that He allows us to mortally sin and thus freely choose Hell. But God the Father also loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die on the Cross to set us free from our personal sins (John 3:16 & 36). "He (Jesus) Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree (Cross), that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed." [1 Peter 2:24] It is our choice. That is the reason why we call Good Friday, good!
