Quasi-religions : humanism, Marxism, and nationalism by John E Smith( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the standpoint of Biblical religion, these quasi-religions are seen as idolatrous, a worshipping of false gods. While both Christianity and Judaism assign the highest dignity to human beings, they both oppose a position that ignores our capacity for self-assertion or the misuse of our freedom and finds the source of most evils in the social environment and not in any perversity in human nature itself. The communist ideal represented by the Communist Party drew many converts, as can seen most vividly in the experiences of Arthur Koestler and the other contributors to The God that Failed, but, lofty as were the ideals, these representative intellectuals all repudiated the means. From the Christian standpoint, it is naive and demonic in the end to believe that even though people are turned into liars, informers, even murderers, in a 'good' cause, they will be transformed when the ideal is achieved. Nationalism is the turning of a native patriotism into a special ideology about the supremacy of the nation. Christianity and Judaism are together in rejecting the elevation of the nation over God." "The author draws upon the work of Corliss Lamont and Paul Kurtz for the presentation of Humanism; upon the writings of Marx and the experiences of Arthur Koestler, Ignazio Silone, Richard Wright and others with the Communist Party for the presentation of Marxism; and upon the studies made by Carlton Hayes, Hans Kohn and Ernst Cassirer for the presentation of Nationalism."--BOOK JACKET
