I think the treating may work on walks and in the house but at the same time I don't want him to become comfortable with strangers. I really want to be able to use a command that says its ok for certain people/animals/situations.

I am going through the same thing with my 5 month old, he started around 3.5-4 months and it kept getting worse. He is finally showing some improvement. Keep on socializing him and it is important that he is comforable around strangers. If he is not, he could bite someone and you would have to get him put down. GSDs are naturally protective so you need to have a dog who is good around people, becuase if needed, he would most likley protect you anyways whether he's good with strangers or not. At this age he needs to learn that everything is safe, including strangers.
