The one thing that has become increasingly clear is that words have different flavors of meanings which is the reason you find a list of meanings in the dictionary. Context in which the word is used and what the user means by it are extremely important.
The words humanism and humanist do not have to indicate the rejection of God as one can be devoted to human affairs with priority devotion to God (Matthew 22:34-40).
I have come to learn that Harvard University was initially established to educate Christian Ministers on human affairs and devotion to it with the right perspective.
Reportedly, in the beginning, Harvard University’s motto was “Truth for Christ and the Church” but now it is just “Truth” as they have removed the “for Christ and the Church” part.
Over the years Harvard has become less and less about devotion to God and more and more about devotion to humans. Harvard has lost its way.
The latest is one more example of Harvard moving further and further into apostate and idolotry in its practices and projections.
The article below reports that Harvard now has a Humanist Chaplain as the leader of its Chaplains who reportedly rejects the very idea of God. In his own reported words he says: “We don’t look to a god for answers,” he said. “We are each other’s answers.”
So yes, even the word Chaplain has different flavors of meaning. It does not necessarily project a belief in God.
Perhaps Harvard has selected the Humanist Chaplain in the name of giving every staff member equitable opportunity to lead. But I am confident that if a staff member does not adhere to the values of the institution that staff member looses his/her right to lead. So selecting a person who does not believe in God to lead people who do believe in God shows that Harvard has a wrong understanding of godly equality/equity in my view. In fact, it shows that Harvard continues to move further into honoring Satan over honoring God.
As for me, I will be like the apostles and declare I would rather obey God than men (Acts 5:29)
