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.

While it may have been better for Pastor Clark to have instructed the ladies of his church to do things to fill their husbands visual Rolodex instead of telling them to lose weight. This issue is easily controlled by the church members determining if the pastor was biblically wrong or just aught not have said that. All that has to be remembered is to ignore the opinions of non members especially non Christian non members. The real concern I have is about the cancel culture of the church from the government such as the Virginia Values act or the Equity Act or the government removing tax exemptions from churches that don’t support and promote same sex marriage and abortion. The second type of cancel culture that I would like to hear your opinion on is the group movement that trys to silence people or companies that they don’t agree with. Where do you balance being silent on obviously immoral activities versus creating a Christian version of sharia law?
