While They Are Canceling Culture…Know Your Side!

The rave today is to engage in "canceling culture". What that simply means is there are those informed ones who hold the citadel to all truth, and their responsibility is to let all of us uninformed know the real truth. Hence they go from deifying public figures, historical legends, tearing down statues and defaming all that was once sacred. This is done in the name of establishing the truth, of course it is truth as they see it.

It is interesting to note that this is the main claim that these truth tellers once ascribed to Christians. They felt that Christians held a bigoted view of life who felt the their way was the only way and hence anything to the contrary was shut down. How the sides have changed; for now there is no allegiance even to their liberal stance. Even if an avowed liberal dares to speak something that disagrees with their positions on canceling culture, then out they go too! Such was the case when J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter’s fame said that men cannot be women. The transgender group decried this statement as being utterly untrue. Hence, there appears to be no loyalty to ascribing to this anti-conservative, anti-church, anti-morality group. Either you buy into their whole agenda or you become an enemy.

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life". No matter what changes have occurred in culture  in the over 2,000 years since He said it, this truth has not changed. That being said, so it is the same with the rest of the revealed Word of God. When the Apostle Peter said:

16 If you suffer for being a Christian, don’t consider it a disgrace but a privilege.Glorify God because you carry the Anointed One’s name.17 For the time is ripe for judgment to begin in God’s own household. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who refuse to obey the gospel of God?

18 And:

If the righteous are barely saved,
what will become of the wicked and godless? 1 Peter 4:16-18 (TPT)

While the truth tellers of our generation are trying to determine who really stands with them; it behooves all Christians to take heed to the words of the Apostle Peter and recognize that if we ascribe to the teachings of Christ, we will never be accepted in this current world that is canceling of culture. That we need to determine that our side doesn’t cancel, it affirms the truth of God’s Word today, tomorrow, and always.
