The Cancel Culture is a Cancer Culture


April 2021

My Dear Family in Christ,


Ever-precious greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ!  It is a joy to share my observational nuggets with you, gleaned from the Spirit, monthly, as I walk along the Way.  Christ’s road of victory, even behind Prison walls, is peppered with truths to be applied.  Christ is – everything we ought to be.


There is a new culture astir.  I call it “cancer culture” (if I might coin a phrase).  As does sin, they devour and destroy everything they touch.  I say “they” because it is an evil mindset, inserted by the enemy into the minds of those whom Marx would call, “Useful idiots.”  They are calculated in their purpose of aggressively bullying Christ from society.  They call themselves progressives, but in truth, they are regressives.  They are myopically evil in their intent.  So shallow are they in their musings, they cannot see past the gloriously designed diverse hues of a person’s skin!


They call themselves “woke.”  Honestly, they are so ridiculous in their rantings.  I pray they will go back to sleep.  If I may, they are born-again backwards in a wicked fashion.  They woke up with a double portion of pernicious lunacy!  They could not see whence they went before; and now, they have thrown open the very gates of hell!  They march joyfully for the elimination of all things Christ-like toward their final destination.  Sadly, they will get their wish in hell.  Thus, we must preach!


Alexander Solzhenitsyn said “One word of truth outweighs the whole world.” Without truth, we are afloat on a sea of lies.  Satan, the very pied-piper of delusion, is leading them.  God has given them over, and as such, they have dismissed the wonderful creative diversity of our God.  Making themselves out to be wise with their perverted diversity doctrine, they have instead proven themselves fools.  They have not grasped the genius of our Lord’s thirty-one flavor, Baskin-Robbins approach of creating man in his own image.  God, eternally diverse in all His perfections, sought to reflect Himself in man, the pinnacle of creation.  Man, with his multiple skin tones is to reflect the many-faceted heart of God.  Cancer culture and the author thereof have turned the Lord’s gracious purposes on its head.  They have pitted men against men, and their end will be what they deserve.  Therein is our calling; so fish beloved – fish!


Jesus did His divine work upon the cross.  He was justified in the Spirit and declared to be the Son of God with power by the resurrection of the dead.  Then, He gave believers a command to go make disciples of all nations.  “Nations” is from the root “ethnos” where we derive our word “ethnic.”  Jesus is commanding us to go into all the ethnic groups of the world - the 31 flavors of mankind as it were.  Do you go? What hindereth thou?


The Lord’s endgame is found in Revelation 7.  There we find the consummation of the above command. It is us.  We are, through the process of time, to become a great multitude, which no man could number.  We are from all nations, ethnic groups with diverse skin hues, kindreds, peoples, and tongues!  We are there standing before the Throne of God worshiping!  We are at once – glorified unity in diversity!  Cancer culture, try as it might, cannot thwart God’s eternal purpose!


If I might clarify, there is only one race – the human race.  We were created by God for Himself.  We are intended to display His glory, and we will.  Glorified humanity (us), as seen in Revelation 7, will rule and reign with Christ in His Kingdom come.  Our enemy, (the devil), himself deception personified, seeks to divide and conquer through cancer culture and its perverted diversity doctrine.   Satan knows mankind’s problem is sin and not skin.  Thus, through his miscreant followers, he subtly slides apart the “s” and the “i” in the word “sin.”  Then as if none can see, he slips in a “k” thus deceiving the whole world into thinking our problem is skin and not sin!  I am sent to expose and exhort!  Sin blinds – that is its ally.  If people would heed the Word of God and repent of their sin, they would not have an issue with other people’s skin!  Skin is but our outward covering; sin is in the heart.  It’s the heart that is desperately wicked and deceitful above all things; not skin.  From our heart springs the issues of life.  It’s in the heart, and the heart alone, that the Lord extracts surrender.  When Christ owns the heart, He owns the man; and when he owns the man, He is glorified.


Be not deceived, Satan masquerades as an angel of light.  He is the author of the woke cancer culture.  It is Antichrist.  Truth be told, they are not woke, they are broke – in the very grip of sin!  They need not to be debated with, but prayed over and saved.  They are not beyond the hope of the gospel.  They are our calling.  Let us stay focused on Truth.  Do not make the mistake of thinking the woke are a joke either.  They shame most of us with their faithful, non-stop preaching!  They believe their doctrine with all their hearts – we ought not.


It is written, And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 9:3)


It is not time for us to fret, but to rise up in the power of the Spirit!  In face of all evil, we are to represent our Christ!  Finally beloved, test positive for faith; stay six feet from doubt, and wash your hands of all wrong-doings.  Above all, quarantine yourself from all sin because you know that one Word of Truth...




Joyfully in Jesus,


Love Philip


Phil is presently serving a 30 year sentence in East Jersey State Prison and is due to be released July 16, 2021.  He will have served the complete sentence.  His influence with the gospel in that prison is massive.  He will be moving a few miles from me to America’s Keswick here in Whiting, NJ.  I am looking forward to meeting him and working with him in the furtherance of the gospel.
