Q: What is the nature of the attack on Christmas?

A: For much of the past 1,800 years, most of the Western world was heavily Christianized. Many people, if not most, believed in the Bible as the authority in the culture. Then there came a subtle attack—the idea that man could determine the truth about origins and history apart from the Bible.
Beginning about 200 years ago, the Bible was increasingly being left out in discussions about origins and early earth history. When God's Word is left out, however, God is left out. So man, by default, became the authority. God and His Word are under relentless attack, especially in Genesis. Secular humanists have also demanded the removal of God and His Word from virtually every area of public life. In its place, they insert their own religion of secular humanism, which treats man as supreme in authority above God.
With these kinds of anti-Christian attacks, did we really believe that even Christmas would be spared by the secularists? Even if Christians choose not to celebrate it, they should be at least equipped to defend the historicity of the account of Jesus coming to earth.
Read the whole article by Bodie Hodge to see more evidence of how our culture is abandoning God and His Word.
