Secularism is defined as "denoting attitudes, activities, or other things that have no religious or spiritual basis." This word comes from the Latin saeculum meaning "generation," or "age." In a Christian context it connotes "the world." I wonder if it may also be called a "theology of distraction." Distractions seem to come around more often when something that has a religious or spiritual basis may be of benefit to us. Lent is like the opposite of secularism.
