04 Mar Cancel Culture is Coming for the pulpit
Cancel culture is coming for the pulpit. Some will be canceled for truth, some for silly talk. I’m not aware of a brother who hasn’t said something foolish while preaching. Proverbs 10:19 “When words are many, transgression is not lacking…”
If you are a Pastor, continue to trust in the Lord and speak the truth in love. Like pioneers in the wilderness, sometimes we need to circle our wagons and find safety in unity. Whatever you do – never apologize for God’s Word. To make peace with the world is draw swords against the Lord. It’s safer, wiser, and kinder to stand for truth even if it costs us everything.
If you are a church member who has a faithful preacher – stand with him. Be identified with him. If he suffers, seek to alleviate his suffering and that of his family. As the shepherd goes, so goes the flock.
President Woodrow Wilson once said, “I would rather fail at something that will ultimately succeed that to succeed at something that will ultimately fail”. History is most definitely on the side of truth. It may be painful in the short run, but the end game is out of this world.
