Stephen E. Strang, an accomplished journalist and the founder of Charisma Media, has just released his new book, God and Cancel Culture: Stand Strong Before It's Too Late. Among his revelations is that China, which is "champing at the bit to become the dominant world power," has the most to "benefit" of all global nations from the current "chaos in America." What's happening in America today is also "fully Marxist"—and together with many of today's big corporations, it's been insidiously working to "[strangle] the rest of us out of existence, canceling our culture, canceling our businesses, destroying our churches—whatever it takes," according to Strang's reporting.
Strang, a widely read author and Christian businessman whose other books include God and Donald Trump,reports that China already practices "a cancel culture," as it restricts its citizens' speech, their internet use, the issuing of visas, the prison population, and much more, so it's already familiar with the "model." Former President Donald J. Trump kept much of this at bay for Americans, but communist China promised to retaliate against America.
Says Strang, "What's going on now seems even worse than George Orwell's 1984, the famous fictional prediction of what life would be like in America if totalitarian trends continued. Increasingly, China seems to call the tune and write the checks for American corporations, including Big Tech. Disguised as an American social movement, much of today's leftist activism is a foreign-directed communist movement within our borders and bent on our destruction. And most Americans are unaware of this."
Strang urges Christians to stand their ground in the face of a widespread cancel culture. "Speaking out and standing for what's right are always in fashion in God's Kingdom," he says.
Strang also shares this keen warning: "Christians are in an unprecedented season of fragmentation, political division, and actual separation on many fronts. 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 points out, "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.
