Could the Bible be cancel culture’s next victim?

No one understood the dynamics of ideological persecution and the failure of society better than German pastor Martin Niemoller.

In his famous post-World War II confessional speech, he said (in paraphrase): “First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a communist.

Our redemption draws near …
