When we delve into Biblical teachings, we often go after “advanced” topics. We are not a church and the majority of what we publish is political or cultural rather than spiritual, so when we tackle Biblical topics we often do so assuming the reader is already immersed in Biblical understanding and simply needs clarity on complex subjects like prophesy, the sabbath, or understanding subtleties often missed in the Biblical message.
It behooves us to sometimes focus on the basics. A great new video from The Bible Projects tackles arguably the most important basic lesson for those considering or just now beginning their journey down the Biblical path. Titled, “How to Read the Gospel,” it breaks down some of the themes associated with the books of Luke, John, Matthew, and Mark, the four books in the New Testament known as the Gospels. Some may take for granted that reading and knowing the Gospels is, of course, necessary for appreciating our salvation and knowing our Lord and Savior, but it’s important to not let the basics slip through the cracks.
One of the first lessons they teach is to read the Gospels all the way through. They are relatively short books; even with cross-referencing they can each be read and researched in 2-4 hours. Deeper study is recommended for each, but going from verse one through to the end and taking the time to dig into particular verses is not only recommended, but also fairly easy to do.
They then go into the themes of each individual book. They may all tell the same basic story, but there are reasons for having all four available. They also have different purposes. This is required because understanding the Gospel is not a flat endeavor. It has many layers, making it extremely important to take in the Gospel as a whole and to continuously read through them from time to tine.
Our understanding as believers can be enhanced when we take the time to understand not just what the Gospels say but also why they say them. We are flawed creatures, but we have access to the perfect through the Bible. This is a blessing we should not ignore.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
