We Are All Worshipers

Of all the misleading interpretations of this complex age, few are more so than the common one that secularism means the replacements of a world view that is religious with one that is not. This completely mistakes the meaning of religion....The religious character of human ideas and institutions is all-pervasive, even in nontheistic systems like Buddhism, communism, and humanism....One of Jacques Ellul's most important contributions has been to show that modern Western society is awash with religiosity, that the much-vaunted secularization process means the flourishing of anti-Christian religions.
