Support for Black Lives Matter has skyrocketed following the tragic death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers and the group is drawing growing support from across the American social spectrum, including Christians of different races and faiths. The BLM movement has become popular in black churches because they have become the new and vigorous voice for civil rights and their support has expanded across racial and religious lines. Unfortunately, Christians are being bewitched by BLM’s continuous stream of falsehoods and they are letting their fervor for civil rights and social justice blind them to God’s instructions for how God wants us to behave.
What Bible teachings are Christians forgetting in favor of BLM’s lies? Let’s take a look.
The Bible teaches us to be truthful and the Ninth Commandment prohibits saying things about others that are not true. In contrast, BLM started by promoting lies about the 2012 death of teenager Trayvon Martin. The county prosecutor declined to bring charges against his killer because he believed there wasn’t enough evidence. Further, George Zimmerman claimed he did not shoot until after Martin attacked him and put him in fear for his life. When they took their protest to social media BLM leaders elevated Martin to the status of a martyr for civil rights and the rage they aroused was expressed in public demonstrations.
They claimed Martin’s death was murder and proof that a white person could hunt-down and kill an innocent black victim without fear of facing criminal charges. (They conveniently overlooked that Zimmerman was not white but Latino.) The case became a national news story when then President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder voiced their support and pressed the state attorney general to prosecute Zimmerman. The left-leaning mainstream media added fuel to the fire by editing Zimmerman’s 911 call to make it sound like he was hunting Martin. They used an old school photo to portray him as a cherubic child when he was several years older and had become a drug abuser and petty criminal. When the case went to trial the state’s evidence was so flimsy that even mainstream reporters remarked about how the state was making a good case for the defense. BLM leaders claimed Zimmerman’s acquittal was fresh proof of the “systemic” and “institutional” discrimination against blacks in America.
BLM leaders began seizing on every time when a black person was killed by a white police officer to stir-up protests and promote the concept that blacks were being victimized. Their complaints on social media went into high gear after the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO when they spread the claim that he had been holding his hands up and trying to surrender when he was shot and killed. That sensational claim was reported over and over by the Mainstream Media and “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” became the chant of angry marchers who were joined by busloads of out-of-town supporters and rabble-rousers who began rioting.
There was just one problem with BLM’s story: it was a total fabrication. It was a complete and total lie. The BLM story was a lie. According to eyewitness testimony given to a grand jury, Officer Darren Wilson was attempting to question Brown about his role in a theft at a nearby store when he attacked Wilson and put him in fear of his life. But that hardly mattered because the “Hands up, don’t shoot!” story had been circulating for so long that a lot of people, including Christians, believed the lie.
BLM has drawn widespread support from black churches because they have become the most visible and vigorous leaders of the civil rights movement, surpassing even leaders like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Their message has spread across racial lines because they look like they are fulfilling the exhortations in Isaiah, chapter 58 to shout aloud and “raise your voice like a trumpet” (Verse 1) and to “loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke…” (verses 6). While it sounds like BLM is on a noble crusade their followers are allowing the excitement and emotion of the protest to keep them from obeying God’s instructions to turn-away from evil.
The Bible teaches that God sets-up rulers and that we are to be subject to their authority, but the founders of BLM are Marxists who advocate for the overthrow of the law and Constitution in America.
The foundations for our judicial system trace back to the Bible instructions God gave to the ancient Children of Israel, including the appointment of judges to hear the evidence against a person accused of breaking the law. Only that judge could declare a person’s guilt and set their punishment and no person could be put to death without the testimony of at least two witnesses. Plus, in the sixth commandment (Exodus 20:13) God prohibited murder and Yet following the death of George Floyd we saw protesters in the streets angrily demanding “Justice NOW!”
Their level of anger left little doubt that had they been able to put their hands on the police officers involved in George Floyd’s death that their lives would have been killed very quickly. That level of anger and mob mentality exposed what may be the ultimate contradiction in the words of civil rights organizers. They are quick to point to history and how many of their people were lynched by mobs demanding immediate punishment for a perceived wrong so the demonstrators were intent on doing exactly what they point to in history as a heinous evil.
Jesus taught his followers to respond to evil in ways very different from the confrontational tactics of BLM and modern civil rights activists. He taught we should love our enemies instead of hating them and in Matthew 5:9 he pronounced a blessing on “the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.” In contrast, BLM and civil rights advocates want you in the street shouting demands for change and making threats against any government official who refuses to submit. He taught us to forgive those who are doing evil things against us and as he was dying on a Roman cross he asked his father to “forgive them for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34).
The truths in the Bible and the lies of BLM are so mutually exclusive that it is impossible for a person to be truthful when claiming to be a follower of Jesus while they are supporting Black Lives Matter.

Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 8000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
