Secularism obscures the truth and revises history.

Secularism obscures the truth and revises history.

When most of us were in school, everybody knew that the terms "BC" and "AD" meant Before Christ and Anno Domine, meaning "in the year of our Lord." But those terms are disappearing as authors now prefer the terms "CE" and "BCE", which are abbreviations for "Common Era" and "Before the Common Era."

As the online encyclopedia Wikipedia points out, "since the later twentieth century, use of CE and BCE has been popularized in academic and scientific publications." It is also being used "by publishers wishing to emphasize secularism and/or sensitivity to non-Christians." In other words, they are changing the terms to erase Jesus from history under the guise of not wishing to offend anyone. The secularists, on the other hand, have no qualms about offending Christians.

This is what secularism does. It obscures the truth and even revises history in subtle or overt ways. Applied chemist and creation scientist Mark Cadwallader says that the use of CE and BCE is "clearly another example of the assault on Christianity. Radical atheists," he says, "have been agitating for freedom from any reference to Christianity and especially its founder. They will disguise and revise history itself to obscure the truth of Jesus Christ."

Another Attempt to Erase Jesus from History

I remember riding in a car with someone who claimed he was an athiest. As we moved down the highway he made a comment about telephone poles. He wanted them to be redesigned so they would not look like a cross.

He also was "offended" by the markers on the roadside that indicated someone died in a car accident. The markers were in the form of a cross and flowers etc.

He also was bothered by vechicles that had any kind of reference to God or Jesus.

In other words he was offended by anything that referenced Jesus.

Why?

It was because everytime he saw a marker, telephone pole, bumper sticker etc he was reminded that there is a God and therefore he was reminded of sin and the judgement of God.

God has put the knowledge of him in every man and woman.

Romans:

1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
