In this new series, Jeff explores leadership principles that we can take from the show, Star Trek.
In this episode, we look at the book of Exodus and God being a jealous God.
Cancel Culture is a phrase that is heard way too often today. When something is canceled, it is nulled, ended, voided. Done, over, no longer wanted, like a TV show or subscription.
But today that same idea is also applied to people, that sense of cancel is the basic idea behind the slang meaning of canceling a person. When a person is canceled, they are no longer supported.
Usually if someone is said to be canceled is because they have done something to offend someone else or taken a position that is not popular with the mainstream of thought.
We live in hyper sensitive times and because of the ease of communication and social media, we would rather cancel someone than actually deal with them.
It might surprise you to find that although the phrase seems fresh, the idea of cancel culture is not new. As a matter of fact, it has been happening for thousands of years.
So how do you live as a follower of Jesus in a cancel culture? This series, which features Easter Sunday, gives us a chance to look at how we fit into, work inside, and shape the culture around us that instead of really working through tough issues would rather just erase them and act as if they never existed. It is the perfect playing field for the people of God to have some of their best days and most fun.
We have been making some important discoveries in our Cancel Culture series as we have seen how what some have called culture really is a cult. The Cancel Cult of Culture tries to silence and destroy anything and everything they do not like. It can be scary but if we follow Jesus we realize that we just can’t live that way. The call of Jesus is to rise above the cancel cult of culture and discover no matter how loudly the culture screams, no matter what the culture says, and no matter how hard the culture works to cancel you – Jesus has something else to say and what He says is the only thing that matters. Get ready to wrap up this series with one more look deep into the culture we live in and see how to navigate it in a way that honors Him.
