Cultural Marxism has been systematically destroying every single thing that makes America great, including the Christian Church. We are seeing the natural result of this ideology both in the Democrat platform as well as the rioting and unrest in the streets. This ideology has led to the cancelling of anyone that gets in the way of the Left. Dr Erwin Lutzer’s new book We Will Not Be Silenced” confronts this evil ideology that is threatening to destroy the very fabric that holds our nation together.
The current overthrow of America that we are living through today has been a long-time coming. Through this ideology that we know as Cultural Marxism, the Left has been able to systematically infiltrated virtually every aspect of American life, from politics to entertainment to education to religion. Unfortunately, Conservatives and Christians have not confronted this ideology as forcefully as we should have until it was too late.
We now find ourselves in a post-American America. By that, I mean that the principles that are country was founded on are no longer that of the ruling class. For example, Joe Biden declared that “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” This was in relation to his unconstitutional executive orders implementing gun control. The reality is that the Democrats have been trying to disarm the American people for decades. What’s even more scary is how quickly they are taking away the rest of our rights.
Our right to peaceably assembly has been completely thrown out the window with the tyrannical edicts from governors across the country limiting capacities in gatherings, especially when it comes to churches. This is also an infringement upon our freedom of religion. We’ve seen Big Tech act like an extension of the Federal Government and strip us of our Freedom of Speech.
The censorship being implemented by these Social Media companies is a scary thing for the future of our country. Now one party, that of the Democrats, has complete control over the news and information that you receive. Without an opposing point of view, there will never be any opportunity to challenge a particular narrative, which leads to the sinister tactic of propaganda.
Unfortunately, with the Left in control of our Federal Government, Dr Lutzer predicts that it is only a matter of time before this Cancel Culture crosses over from simply being a form of canceling with society to being enforced through the threat of arrest or worse by the government. As I’ve shared for months, my fear is that the Left is successfully pushing the narrative that conservatism is tied to racism and violent extremists. While this could not be further from the truth, this is setting us up to be persecuted for our beliefs and face unprecedented measures by our own government.
As Conservatives and Christians (the ones that are being silenced), it is incumbent upon us to refuse to be silent. As Dr Lutzer’s book title clearly states, “We Will Not Be Silenced.” Yes, the Left is doing everything that they can to take away our voice, our jobs and our ability to participate in a free society. This is simply an intimidation tactic to get the American people to submit to their socialist and authoritarian will.
Are we facing an uphill battle? Absolutely. Is it an impossibly situation? Possibly, without God. However, as Dr Lutzer and I discuss during this podcast, God often uses the faithful few to accomplish His will. We saw that through Scripture, as well as Church history. It is simply incumbent upon us to be obedient, faithful proclaiming the truth boldly. Let’s have the phrase “we will not be silenced” be the slogan of the Conservative Movement.

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.
