Writing and etymology in Korean
人文 (인문) – humanity
主義 (주의) – doctrine, ideology

In the Middle Ages, people put religion first in their lives; they sometimes did not recognize the value of human beings. In contrast, humanism was born, which put man first and began to deny the importance of the Creator.

The benchmark for humanism is the body. A selfish, pleasure-seeking body. People began to value material things above all else. For materialists, money is everything. They believe that nothing is more valuable than money, not even people.

The problem with humanism is that it denies the Creator. In this case, the value of people is reduced to that of a handful of ashes. This is the fallacy of Marxism-Leninism. If we assert that there is no God and that human beings are no better than machines or animals, then there is no basis for morality and moral principles. Without belief in the existence of the soul and eternal life, people have no sense of responsibility for one another and abuse other people.

Democratic education is based on the value and dignity of the individual. However, an excessive emphasis on individual rights has created a tendency toward individualism and selfishness. The inevitable result of this approach is social disorder.

Communist doctrine holds that man is nothing more than an animal that has reached a high level of development as a result of evolution, and is at the same time a product of the social environment. For communists, it is not the human individuality that matters, but the social environment and social institutions. The genocide that has accompanied communist revolutions demonstrates that communism lacks a theoretical basis that respects human individuality.

What ideology should guide the state? That ideology should teach the nation to serve the world. The world must turn to Godism. If left as it is, the world will perish. The logic we must inherit, which will form the basis of the tradition of Godism, is the logic of true love. This is why people need true love, whether they are men or women, husbands or wives, sons or daughters, clans, nations, countries or the world.
