Cancel Culture is the idea that anything controversial in speech or behavior should be punished through public shaming, silencing, boycotting, firing, etc. People’s lives become ruined through this cancel culture idea. Cancel Culture has so many dangerous outcomes and is also associated with several problems that can be addressed biblically. Cancel culture is rash, spiteful, judgmental, and unforgiving. Cancel culture views people as unredeemable and worthy of such spiteful reaction. Christians should see no one as unredeemable or as an object of spite. Repentance and change are always possible. God’s love is always available.
Questions for further thought:
1. What are your personal thoughts on cancel culture?
2. How do you believe we as Christians should respond to it?
Challenge: When you feel the need to “cancel someone,” pray that God would cancel your anger, so you don’t need to cancel your relationship.
