One of the things that troubles me most is Cancel Culture. There are some that say it’s a social construct, but every time anyone wants to cause someone else to be silenced, it indicates that the person wanting the other to be silenced sees themselves ostensibly as infallible. That sets up the person wanting the silence for failure. I explain my thought in this week’s podcast.
Over the last four months, Nay and I have had several times of particular difficulty. Hannah Gadlage asked a great question about what Bible verses we use to get through tough times. In this show I mention Nay’s Testimony of how God healed her, and here is a link to that.
This Week’s Podcast
Verses I mention in today’s podcast:
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Whoever pursues righteousness and love
finds life, prosperity[a] and honor.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
2 Timothy 1:7
