Stephen Strang Says Christians Must Stand Firm Against Government Overreach

Stephen E. Strang, an award-winning journalist and the founder of Charisma Media, has just released his new book, God and Cancel Culture: Stand Strong Before It's Too Late. The timing is critical because a pervasive "cancel culture" seeks to punish those who believe in God and engage in regular worship.

Strang, a widely read author and Christian businessman who wroteGod and Donald Trump as well as other books, reveals that while many people were hoping Christians would be able to ride out the storm, religion—especially Christianity—is under attack. While many churches wound up submitting to government authority in the early days of the pandemic, a brave few did stand up for their religious beliefs, no matter the consequences.

Strang praises those churches for their actions—but also shares an important warning. "The term 'cancel culture' applies to conservatives who oppose the politically correct crowd, but it is part of a bigger effort to cancel Christianity and those who espouse biblical principles," he says. "As Christians, we are called to help others in need as Jesus instructed, but we must also stand firm against government overreach. Ministries that are embracing both callings are actually experiencing political and spiritual revival."

"Today, Christians are in an unprecedented season of fragmentation, political division and actual separation on many fronts," Strang adds. "While the body of Christ is a big, diverse family, we must choose to cheer one another on, rather than allow ourselves to be divided. Christians must not lose heart. We must stand strong and not be intimidated. We must pray—and we must believe God for a great awakening."

In clear, authoritative prose, Strang's God and Cancel Culture features compelling interviews with an array of prominent leaders and does the following:

— Documents what is happening in the country right now.

— Shares how believers can respond.

— Explains why Christians can look to the future with hope.

— Helps readers understand that no matter how bad things seem, God always comes through.

Strang also says, "We need to understand that what we're dealing with today is far more sinister than 'liberal' versus 'conservative.' We're seeing the emergence of a uniquely American form of communism: at best, frightening, at worst, murderous—to biblical values, to our way of life and to individuals it deems 'less than.'"

God and Cancel Culture will help Christians realize the seriousness of the battle before them and illuminate the present circumstance for the purpose of doing good—to bring hope. It documents what is happening in the country, how believers can respond, and why they can look expectantly to the future.
