Given humanism’s grip on our culture, is calling people back to a belief in the sovereignty of God not an implied rejection of the many improvements made over the last hundred years or an abandonment of the possibility for future progress?
Absolutely not! Correlation between our embrace of humanism and progress does not prove causation. If God is sovereign, then that progress was because of God’s good providence, even if He used human activity to bring it about.
Abandoning humanism does not lead a Christian to long for the past or give up on the future, because our gratitude for the past and our expectation for the future rests not in man, but in the sovereignty of God, whose goodness is manifest in His salvation and who is moving things forward to a glorious end that He has appointed.
