The GateKeepers Publishing recently published the book Church & State: How the Left Used the Church to Conquer America. One of the chapters tackled the issue of single-issue voting, which was written by Pastor Ken Peters, who is the pastor of both Patriot Church and The Church at Planned Parenthood.
Many mainstream pastors have criticized conservative Christians for voting Republican because of being pro-life, claiming that it’s wrong to be single-issue voters. During this episode of Conversations with Jeff, as well as in his chapter in Church & State, Ken exposes the flawed logic of this line of thinking and how this marginalization of abortion is contributing to the American Holocaust.
Ever since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States of America back in 2016, mainstream Evangelicalism has shifted towards progressive Christianity. What once was a staunch conservative voting block are now parroting talking points from Bernie Sanders and AOC. Unfortunately, one of those issues getting marginalized is the vitally important injustice of our time: abortion.
Many pastors, including Mark Dever, Jonathan Leeman and Thabiti Anyabwile have been critical of Christians who refuse to vote Democrat because of their pro-abortion stance. They’ve labelled us all “single-issue voters” and proceeded to condemn this kind of thinking. They’ll even redefine what it means to be pro-life, changing the definition from being one of defending life in the womb to promoting leftist social justice talking points such as amnesty, racial reparations and climate change.
Pastor Ken Peters has been making the case that Christians need to be single issue voters as long as this American Holocaust is occurring. Millions of babies are being aborted on an ongoing basis, with no end in sight. The thought that this should not be priority number one for believers when they go to the ballot box is mind-boggling.
When it comes to politics, we can discuss and debate many issues, agreeing to disagree with our opponents. However, when it comes to abortion, this needs to be a non-negotiable. If you are pro-abortion, that needs to be a non-starter. We cannot vote for someone who is promoting abortion and Planned Parenthood.

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.
