I have never heard the term "post-Christian" to refer to the era after
Christ; as Marcia indicates post Christ would have been clearer.
Today "post- Christian" is a term used by conservative Christians to
identify those Christians who have drifted into what they call "secularism"
The following I lifted off a conservative religious site:
'The Anglican Archbishop of Sydney, Peter Jensen, in a recent lecture
mourned the loss of this influence (traditional Christian values). He said
it was because we had "lost confidence in the truth for which we stand".
Churches preferred to be "relevant" and to "sing our songs to the world's
tunes". But what he is really describing is the slow shift from Christendom
to a post Christian, pluralistic culture.'
For the record I am not anti-Christian; I am secular, humanistic, strive to
be relevant, and value, appreciate, and respect diverse cultures.
