Today, I was asked this question: "Who will you vote for in the 2024 elections?"
Here was my paraphrased answer: "I have no idea until I vet the candidates during the Iowa, first-in-the-nation Caucus process. We had 15 Republican candidates five years ago and it quickly narrowed to about 5 by faithfully applying the Exodus 18:21 minimum standard to the choices available.
After that point was reached the rhetorical question transformed from the typical "which of these will be the lesser-evil?" to "which of these men will be the greatest good?" Objective standards from Biblical law will always be superior to subjective standards from the mere opinions of men, right?
Sadly, most Evangelicals (at least in states other than Iowa) chose a humanist standard in rebellion (both passive & aggressive) against simple, wise rules like that given by Jethro to Moses in Exodus 18:21... So we got a one-term, non-conservative, populist Republican nominee who became president by a very narrow thread... He did a few good things, one or two arguably great things, and, frankly, a lot of incredibly stupid things.
(Here's a short-list of stupid-things for the cult idolaters who struggle with truth: Pro-Transvestite and Pro-Gay? the appiontment of Sodomite international ambassadors to foreign nations? Threats against African nations for not being "pro-gay" enough to suit the administration? Adulterous braggings? Fauci? Masks? Lockdowns? Executive fiat abuse of the Constitution against bump-stocks? Red-flag law support? Judicial supremacist Supreme Court nominees?).
So I will wash, rinse, repeat again for presidential politics in 2024 while understanding the reality that the last vestige of liberty belongs to the rare activist who pays very close attention to LOCAL elections, not "release Barrabus!" mobocracy in a foolish federal election amidst a wicked populace who mostly hate Christ and routinely mock the wisdom of the Bible, (if not verbally and out-loud, at least by their contrarian actions).
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.
