So Humanism?

Humanism seems a reasonably good idea to explore.

I struggle though with it’s emphasis on the individual above community and am slightly concerned it might have hubristic tendencies.

I suppose there is also a lack of authority and moral guidance in humanism, which I struggle with. Probably very insecure of me…

Do we need to succumb to authority in order to be taught a moral framework? God of course represents that authority and the usual course of action seems to be to surrender to that authority.

However, whilst a surrender to authority seems comforting (God of our Fathers and all that) authority doesn’t like too many questions and is ultimately concerned with it’s own status and power and resist plurality.

So no authority? Perhaps.
