Free speech in America is under attack, especially when that speech counters “woke culture.” Leftists are “cancelling” those who disagree with their ideology, all in the name of “wokeism.”

Bishop E.W. Jackson of STAND – Staying True to America’s National Destiny, recently joined Andrew Wommack and Richard Harris on the Truth & Liberty live cast to discuss a number of issues, including how to respond to woke culture.

Getting Rooted and Grounded

To be “woke” is to see racism and other forms of discrimination where others do not. Under threat of being censored on social media, losing their careers, and otherwise having their lives ruined, some Christians are staying silent on biblical issues or are being drawn into agreement with wokeism.

The issue, says the bishop, is what worldview people have. A worldview is the lens through which a person sees the world. For Christians, that worldview should be based on the Bible – the Word of God.

According to the bishop, there are many ways of looking at the world, including through the lenses of race, ideology, or even sports. But the answer to standing strong against a woke worldview is to maintain a biblical worldview.

“The church needs to be rooted and grounded in the Word,” says the bishop.

Renewing Your Mind to the Word

Bishop Jackson is a contributor to Andrew’s Biblical Worldview curriculum series. After years of ministry, the bishop says he is still deepening his understanding of biblical truths and that other Christians can strengthen their faith by staying in the Word of God.

“Jesus said, ‘If you abide in My Word, you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32),’” says the bishop.

According to Andrew, friends of his are seeing the Word of God transform their lives – along with their opinions on certain issues.

“The Word is the answer to everything,” says Andrew. “People who are buying into the woke culture – into the counter-culture where you do away with all of our godly history – it’s because they don’t know the Word of God.”
