Podcast host and author, Allie Beth Stuckey, is scheduled to be a keynote speaker at the 2021 March for the Martyrs in Washington, D.C. She is the host of the Relatable podcast and the author of You’re Not Enough (And That’s Okay): Escaping the Toxic Culture of Self-Love.
On her podcast, Stuckey analyzes politics and culture from a Christian worldview. She has been outspoken about the realities of Christian persecution around the world, the necessity of religious freedom, and current cultural issues facing Christians, such as the jailing of pastors in Canada, COVID-19 restrictions on churches, abortion, the Equality Act, and much more.
Stuckey holds a deep conviction that attentiveness to the cultural climate is the best way to prepare for any future persecution or discrimination that may come to the United States. As she frequently says on her podcast: “Politicians affect policies which affect people,” which means that paying attention to politicians and policies gives a glimpse into how people are, or will be, affected.
Here are a few quotes from Allie Beth Stuckey on how to prepare for persecution:
In an interview with Pastor Andrew Brunson she said, “If we’re not willing to share the Gospel today just because we’re scared that it’s awkward or someone might not like us, we’re kidding ourselves to think that we will share the Gospel when imprisonment is the consequence of doing so.”
“If we’re exercising that muscle of faithful obedience right now when we’re not facing the ramifications we may be facing one day. Then we can be better prepared and better set up for when trials come,” she said later in that same interview.
“Decide ahead of time that you are going to follow Christ whatever the cost,” Stuckey advised her audience in an interview with Glenn Beck. “While it is safe to do so, let’s cast away our idols, our worldly cares, our pet sins that the Bible tells us so easily entangle… . Let’s go ahead and let those things go because we can’t take them with us and instead dedicate ourselves fully to doing all and only that which Jesus asks us to do.”
“Nothing can stop the power of the Gospel, absolutely nothing,” Stuckey said in a Relatable episode responding to the Easter church bombings in Sri Lanka. “Whether it’s suicide bombings, whether it’s government regulations, whether it’s imprisonment, whether it’s discrimination, whether it is the attempts to censor our speech, whether it’s the government infringing on what is said in pulpits or how Bibles are distributed, no power on Earth can ever stop the authority of the gospel.”
“We enjoy so much freedom here and we should use that freedom to pray and to support [the persecuted church] in any way we possibly can,” Stuckey encouraged her audience.
