It’s a common misconception that false gospels are mutually exclusive. The Prosperity Gospel is often viewed as a Republican heresy while the Social Justice Gospel and liberal Christianity at large are viewed as Democrat heresies. Indeed Donald Trump has surrounded himself on multiple occasions with Prosperity preachers, including his “spiritual advisor” Paula White (Cain). And numerous theological liberals are supportive of socialism. John Pavlovitz is a prominent example of this. But these seemingly politically opposed false gospels are far from mutually exclusive.
In this video I pull out a few examples. Dr. Eric Mason, author of Woke Church, recently had a viral sermon in which he’s using the Bible to call for reparations. Eric Mason is most certainly woke, but no doubt Eric Mason is trying to get some stacks. And I speculate there is a racial divide on motivation. The woke white brigade is usually not so craven in pursuit of stacks. The white elites are the real communists. A lot of woke black preachers want to get reparations, like Mason.
On the Prosperity Gospel side the motives change also. Joel Osteen wants the stacks to keep flowing and going along with corporate America on every major social issue is one way to do that. John Gray is one of the most habitually scandal-ensnared preachers in America. He could use a little victimhood at the moment.
With victimhood, there’s money to be made. Bowing to culture is safer than living according to biblical convictions. And you can’t live by biblical convictions if you don’t have any. And without such convictions, by what standard can you to oppose a competing false gospel?
COVID-19 may take down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.

When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the so-called “surge” or “2nd-wave” that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $11,500 to stay afloat for the rest of 2020, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
Election year or not, coronavirus lockdowns or not, anarchic riots or not, the need for truthful journalism endures. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.

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.
