Pastor and author Dr. Michael Youssef did not mince words when discussing the influx of “woke” theology and worldviews making their way into the Christian church. He flatly warned pastors and their congregants about the dangers of the woke movement and why it runs antithetical to the Gospel during an appearance on CBN News. From the debate over transgender rights to expressing faith in any segment of society, the cancel culture wants Americans to go “woke.” However, Pastor Michael Youssef, host of the popular program Leading the Way, warns that following the current culture is deadly to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Dr. Youssef joined CBN’s The Prayer Link program with a strong message to pastors, warning them about spewing far-left ideology from the pulpit. He is urging them to refocus their message to be centred on Jesus Christ.
“It’s not of the colour of skin, or the ethnic background, or social status, it is about Jesus,” he explained. “When you take your eyes off Jesus on to the circumstances that surrounds us, you get this whole idea that we’re woke. You begin to see the world made up of two kinds of people, the oppressed and the oppressors and we begin to see people through those kind of prisms. That is a false Gospel and we ought not to fall for that trap.” He is pleading with evangelical pastors to be alert and awake to the lies that are linked to the ultimate deceiver. “This is another of those deceptions that are sneaking into the church trying to take our eyes off Jesus and off the fact that only He can give us eternal life, forgiveness of sin and redemption. He has got to be the focus. Who is the master of division? Satan. He is the one trying to divide us while Jesus unites us.”
