Spineless cowards or complicit agents of the adversary…. They exist in every field, today, including theology.
In a terrific American Thinker article titled ‘In the Sway of the Narrative,’ the point is demonstrated that free and critical thinking is no longer tolerated by the establishment. Those in power/control like the echo chamber that promotes their ideals and they actively cancel any contrary or dissenting opinion no matter how well researched or presented. In truth, they have a clear agenda that demands total submission to whatever their position or opinion is, regardless of facts.
While this is most evident in science, particularly as it applies to the current shots and man-made viruses, it is evident in every other area of society. We see School Boards reject any questioning of their acquiescence to race theory, rejection of any data or research contrary to global warming, vilification of any messenger that speaks truth to power.
Most Hebrew roots/Messianic believers have experienced or been on the receiving end of this sort of vilification. Truth will not be tolerated by the establishment, therefore they are forced out of the arena to join men such as John the Baptist and Elijah in the wilderness. Funny how we know their names, but the contemporary persecutors we know not!
Last fall, I wrote about the presence, within Messianic and Hebrew roots circles, of this same spirit of deception that the adversary used to remove many of us from contemporary Christian worship. Shunning and cancel culture is as old a Noach… at least!! Truth, however, will always endure, though the messenger be killed!!
It is the adversary who must resort to deception, cancelling, forcibly silencing, and shunning. He, and his minions, cannot stand in the face of Truth! Truth stands tall and stands through the midst of the persecution! Those caught on the wrong side of truth as the ones who will be the big losers!
Today, we live in an age of deception, and in our circles, sometimes the deceivers come as ‘angels of light.’ Beware the teachers that teach contrary to God’s clear and unchanging Word! They speak with forked tongue and gather to themselves well tickled ears while actively deleting and cancelling any Truth speaker that contradicts their self-serving narrative.
Seek the whole counsel of God’s Word!!
