If you’ve gone to an evangelical church, you’re probably familiar with the “Sinner’s Prayer.” It’s a tactic conceived of around five decades ago during a time when church revivalists were seeking shortcuts to infuse churches in America with more members. The motives were likely sincere, but the results have been horrendous.
With the Sinner’s Prayer, parishioners are asked, usually at the end of a church service, whether anyone wants to be saved. Those who raise their hand are often brought forward or sent to a counselor who will then have them recite a prayer. There are many variations, but essentially it’s supposed to be a five-minute acknowledgement of sin and a request for Jesus Christ to come into their heart. They are often told to write the date of the event in the back of their Bible to commemorate the occasion and to act as a reminder of the gift they’d been given.
In theory, it’s a fine technique. It can even work from time to time when the subject takes the event as a starting point for them to explore their faith, read the Bible, and begin a life of prayer and repentance. But all too often, it’s a quickly forgotten moment that not only confuses people about what it means to be a born-again Christian, but may even hamper them from seeking proper acceptance of the Lord.
Evangelist Paul Washer is adamantly against the practice. He is known for being a “fire and brimstone” style Bible teacher whose ministry is spread around the world. He is also extremely critical of the lukewarm nature of American evangelism and claims the Sinner’s Prayer does plenty of damage while rarely doing anything positive for the people who participate in it.
If you want a better understanding of what the Sinner’s Prayer really is and why it’s so dangerous, watch Paul Washer’s video. It’s important for those seeking the truth and desiring to walk with Jesus Christ to understand what really needs to be done.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
