TRANSCIPT
 
Well hey everyone, it’s Pastor Bill! Well we are living in what has been described as “cancel culture”. If you say the wrong thing, write the wrong thing, post the wrong thing, or even tweet the wrong thing, you will be confronted, bullied, and ultimately cancelled by those in our culture. My own personal blog has been censored by Facebook. I guess they don’t like the religious content that I’m posting.
 
But the truth is cancel culture has been around for a very long time. All throughout the Bible, godly men and women have been bullied, persecuted, and even executed because of their faithfulness to God. The greatest example of “cancel culture” coming after someone is when the religious leaders came after Jesus. The religious leaders didn’t like the words coming out of Jesus’ mouth. For example, when He claimed to be the Son of God. So they had Him crucified. That’s really the ultimate way to cancel someone, put them to death. The only thing is you can’t cancel Jesus. Three days after being put to death, Jesus rose from the dead, proving that He was who He claimed to be, the one and only Son of God. 
 
So if I might be so bold to ask you a question: Who do you say that Jesus is? Listen, how you answer this question will be the single most important decision you will ever make in this lifetime. Romans 10:9 (ESV) says “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” 
 
Listen, if you’ve never trusted in Jesus as your Lord and Savior, let today be the day that you repent of your sin and put your faith in the one who claimed to be the Son of God. Take care and God Bless!
