Many of you have asked about teachers that I recommend, and quite honestly Big Eva is not full of them. However, that does not mean there aren’t prominent pastors online, allied to this grassroots movement. One such pastor I recommend is Sam Jones. Coincidentally, I was preparing to reach out to him for an interview, but when the opportunity was handed to me to talk about his book.
It’s not exactly a secret that America is dying on the inside. Sam Jones has written a book, 5 Steps To Kill A Nation which you can get here. In the interview, I take a more foundational approach rather than asking direct questions about his book. The first of such questions is what do politics have to do with the Great Commission? Sam believes that politics involves teaching the nations the commands of Christ which do include civil law as we take into account the whole of Scripture. This leads into a discussion on taxation, an area in which America is well surpassed the biblical threshold of judgement. Pointing out how unbiblical our tax code is can lead one to conclude that “taxation is theft.” But I ask whether he agrees with the mantra, and we discuss what biblical taxation could or would look like.
It is a grave trick that the slippery slope is often taught as a logical fallacy when the slippery slope articulates the consequences of taking a premise to its logical conclusion. I ask where does the slippery slope begin, where does it end, and where is America currently. Sam gives a rather foundational answer to this question, in that the slippery slope begins when a nation stops seeking God. And that ends when the nation completely deconstructs God from their mentality. He states that America is near the bottom of the slope. I press to make this more tangible. The answer I got was unexpected. Sam states that the removal of God from the schools was the beginning of America’s slippery slope, and credits John Dewey, who I mistakenly conflate with Thomas Dewey, with this action.
The conversion touched on how America can be saved. This is a tough problem to apply tangible actions to solve. But it’s clear that the church needs to instill a biblical worldview in its congregants, and there needs to be an effective political voice for a biblical worldview. The American church is therefore likened to the German church, a church that was dead before Hitler, despite Germany being a cultural hub of Europe. America is certainly the cultural hub of the west, the inheritors of the Roman mantle. The slippery slope is fast approaching its bottom. There are really only two options. Either America will be destroyed by God. Or America will be pushed to the brink and repent so that the world will have no doubt that God will save America.

Big Tech censorship has been expanding beyond just Conservatives… Christians are next!
While many of us have been warning about the coming persecution of Christians, I don’t think any of us thought that it would be ramping up so quickly. While we are luckily not facing physical persecution yet, such as beatings or death, we are facing censorship, deplatforming and even jail time in some instances. These are just the birth pangs of what is coming next.
While we still have a voice here at The GateKeepers, we are doing everything that we can to bypass the algorithmic walls put up by Big Tech and the Social Media companies like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Our videos used to get thousands of views across all of our platforms, while now they are being throttled and hardly getting distributed at all. An added wrinkle is that, while our video content is seeing lower views, traffic to our website has never been higher. Over the past year we’ve seen a 700% increase in traffic, and it’s been amazing to experience this kind of growth. Because of this, we’ll be launching GKTV very soon, hosting all of our shows exclusively on our platform.
While The GateKeepers started out as nothing more than a blog for me to post my articles relating to concerns within Christianity, it has now expanded into a full-fledged Christian podcast network featuring fifteen shows, a publishing company that has published three books over the past year and we are now hosting conferences on a regular basis. We’ve seen the addition of contributors to The GateKeepers such as Denise McAllister, Pastor Cary Gordon, Pastor Ken Peters, Dr Mike Spaulding, Dr Bobby Lopez and many other amazing Christian leaders. Our lineup of shows has expanded, as well, featuring shows such as The Shining Light Podcast, Conversations with Jeff, The Big Brown Gadfly, Battlefront: SouthGate and The Verum Monitae Report with Dr Mike Spaulding, in addition the the several other shows we also carry on The GateKeepers.
Everything that we do is for the purpose of expanding Biblical Christianity through the preaching of the Gospel, the exposition of God's Word and confronting error where it pops its ugly head within the Church. We are mission-focused first, and then we use technology, books, resources and events to accomplish and further the Gospel and Biblical theology.
While we’ve seen some amazing growth and expansion, we are also working hard to make this be a long-term play, and with that comes with how to fund our work here. I’ve intentionally not turned The GateKeepers into a non-profit organization because I don’t want to become beholden to the government, and I also don’t want to be focused on sending out fundraising letters constantly begging for money like most non-profit ministries do.
Instead, we have our online book store, are hosting online conferences and have our Plugged In membership program. Right now we are funded exclusively through these three different avenues. We are especially excited about our Plugged In membership, as this brings so much added value to you as a thank you for supporting our work here at The GateKeepers.
Becoming a Plugged In member provides access to the weekly episode of The GateKeepers Podcast, the monthly episode of Connected, free access to all of our online conferences, the recordings from previous online conferences and 30% off in The GK Store. If you would like to support us by becoming a Plugged In member, click here.
However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from supporters asking how they can donate to help support The GateKeepers. We are extremely grateful for these requests, as this will help us to expand even further and provide more quality Biblical content. If you would like to help support to The GateKeepers, you can donate through PayPal here.
