Greek humanism has clearly affected the spiritual thinking of the followers of Jesus for a long time. Having solid ‘facts’ and ‘historical correctness’ can make the head full of knowledge and the heart empty of passion. Knowledge has never matured anyone. Many think that much knowledge can mature and make one wise in the ‘things of God,’ but this is only the layers and layers of Greek thought beaming through into the present to give the same delusion it always has. It quickly takes one back to the original humanism, ‘You will be like God’ …or gods (Genesis 3:5).
We are in a great period of mercy and grace from the Lord. This is the time spoken of by Zechariah, ‘I will raise up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece…” (9:13). The ‘sons of Greece’ are those who embrace the deception of humanism and spiritual mixture…calling everything ‘truth.’ The ‘sons of Zion’ are those who take their stand upon the words of Jesus and the infallible Word of God.
“In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.” Jesus
