VERSTER, Pieter. Neutral or secularistic, humanistic and paganistic: The alternative religion of the West?. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 2305-0853.

In search for neutrality in the scientific endeavour in the West an alternative religion was established. This religion is secularistic, humanistic and paganistic. Christian views in science and society were changed for views that in reality reject the Christian gospel. Is there a Christian reply to the deep problems of the alternative religion which presents itself in the West? The Christian message must be in total and encompassing. Science which is practiced from the perspective of faith should therefore, among others, have the following aspects: A broad perspective in acknowledging God in whom the freedom in Christ is the true freedom for life; and also a respect for humanity in the practice of science from the perspective that God is the One who in Jesus Christ gives true life. There must also be an eschatological perspective. Reformational renewal of the community and especially in science requires the acknowledgement of Jesus Christ's life-changing influence and rule. These aspects will receive attention in the article.
