(Christian Headlines) Cancel culture involves a series of “unbiblical” beliefs that mirror what Jesus said would foreshadow the end times, author and pastor David Jeremiah says.
Jeremiah, the pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon., Calif., made the remarks in a sermon Sunday about cancel culture, saying its goal of punishing and ostracizing is in conflict with Jesus’ commands to love God and love others. The message was part of a sermon series about current events that will be summarized in an upcoming book, “Where Do We Go from Here? How Tomorrow’s Prophecies Foreshadow Today’s Problems.” It is scheduled to be released in October.
“Cancel culture is laser-focused on judgment and accusation and punishment,” Jeremiah said. “And the goal of those who cancel others is to broadcast their sins from pillar to post, and never allow them to be removed or forgotten. Christ’s goal, on the other hand, is love, mercy and grace.”
