Who Started the “Common Era”?

Parts of the western culture have become so desperate to rid the world of the name of Jesus Christ that many of the “intellectuals” now substitute the abbreviation B.C. (Before Christ) with B.C.E. (Before Common Era) and A.D. (Anno Domini which means “In the year of our Lord”) with C.E. (Common Era) when referring to time lined events of history.

Nice try people, but it really does nothing other than pacify for a moment.

Why’s that? Because what answer will you have to give the person who asks, “Why is there a split in the timeline to begin with?” Who will you have to talk about to explain that?

You cannot get around or away from Him. So why not come to Him? (Matthew 11:28-30)

We live in a great time because it is His time and there is no timeline where Jesus the Christ is not the beginning, the middle and the end.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8)

  1. Very good thought. I’ve not seen what Portuguese does with this, haven’t paid attention to that. Gonna ask around. If there’s something like it here, I’ll translate this for our magazine. Thanks!

    1. Sounds good even if I won’t be able to understand it :) If the principle works out but the wording doesn’t fit exactly just rewrite it as your own. I don’t mind as long as it might do some good. Thanks for stopping by Randal
