If you are reading this then chances are you know that the media is nothing more than the extension of the Left and their ideologies. They have lied over and over again to push the agenda of their leftist views upon us. They told us that the nation was falling apart under the Trump administration, while the stock market was hitting an all time high, wages were on the rise and joblessness was at an all time low. The thing is they never cared about the truth or the facts, all they cared about was their push towards a socialistic government even at the expense of the American people.
Many people may believe that they have ideals, but many times the truth of the matter is that those ideas have them. They have them so deeply that they will completely disregard facts and logic that is staring them directly in the face. The reason for this is because if their ideologies are wrong, then so is their belief system, and if that is wrong then their lives collapse. They must then promulgate lies upon lies to keep the idea alive, because if it dies, so does everything they have been working for. The media and the Left, but I repeat myself, knows this and is following Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels perfectly when he stated,
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the state to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
So breaking this down to an individual level is the easiest way for me to attempt to explain the importance of building your life on truth rather than lies. Facts for one are tools to be used, they are neutral and do not pick a side, whether that’s political or ideological. As Ben Shapiro states, “Facts don’t care about your feelings”. They are foundational and irrefutable therefore when you base your argument upon them, it becomes solid and firm. The facts then become subject to your interpretation as to how they are going to be presented, if the facts are presented through the lens of objective reality they can not be refuted, solidifying your argument even further. I have found that the more you have to explain a simple fact the more you end up explaining it away or eroding it into a lie, distorted and weak. Rather, to keep something simple is the best way to present an absolute truth, because well, the truth is simple.
The problem with the media and the left is that they will outright lie to the pubic to push the agenda of their political leaders, or worse they will only present a small portion of the truth and then fill it with their opinions, or distort it using word play and other half truths to construct a narrative based in a world of lies. The snake in the Garden of Eden did this exact thing, the closer to the truth a lie is, the more likely people will fall for it. The media is extremely effective at it as well, they hold the air waves leading them have the largest grip on the population. When you have political puppets spewing the same nonsense the media is, it’s tough to combat. This holds especially true when a majority of the nation is too lazy to preform their own research on the topics.
There is a plus side though, the fact that the Left has distorted and twisted the facts into such an abomination makes their arguments weak and devolved, subject to the truth that Goebbles was so afraid of. The Left can’t protect the public from the truth for long, especially if we decide to share that truth. We need to really educate ourselves more than ever, instead of listening to the mainstream media, or anyone for that matter, take it upon yourself to read the laws, to get caught up on the history of this great nation. The beautiful thing about arming yourself with the truth is that it will lead your arguments to be built with a solid unshakable foundation of stone. To achieve this you must be honest with yourself in where you could be wrong, steel man your adversaries ideologies and challenge them against what you believe to be true. Take every conversation you have with someone seriously, it is possible they may know something you do not, or they may even help you find the holes in your arguments that you need to fix. Maybe, just maybe, you will find that you were wrong and the idea you had needs to be discarded, but if what you say holds true, stand firm. Once you have challenged your belief system enough, take your arguments into the world and challenge others on what they believe. Start sharing the truth with those closest to you, and if these people are honest with themselves, then the truth will reveal itself and the changing of a nation can truly start to begin. It’s up to us to carry this burden, to share the truth, and to change the hearts and minds of those living in a world shrouded in lies.
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, it has now expanded into a 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.
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.
