If we want to save America, it is going to require a combination of faith and freedom. We can’t fix this mess with only one. Think about it… if we only focus on our Christian faith and take ourselves out of the political battle for freedom, then we are not shining our light into the darkness of politics. If we only focus on the political battle without the Gospel, then we don’t have a moral society, as our Founding Fathers originally intended. It must be a combination of both faith and freedom.
I recently joined Jon James’ on his radio show Freedom’s Pep Rally, to discuss this very idea of the blending together of Faith and Freedom. How does this play out in our daily lives?
We cannot be afraid to jump into the public debate on controversial issues, as we have the truth on our side. We can bring clarity to the chaos of the world. We have the Source of Truth literally living inside of us if we’ve placed our faith in Jesus Christ. As God’s Word says, “Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.” (Matthew 5:15)
While America was founded as a Christian nation, we’ve turned our back on God as a society. It’s time we bring back revival, through the preaching of the Gospel for all to hear! If we believe that when someone places their faith in Christ they will receive the Holy Spirit into their life, which will sanctify them and make them more Christ-like, then the best thing we can do to win the Culture War is to preach the Gospel to the Lost.
As Christians, we must be engaged in the political fight. Why? We need to make sure we’re “always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.” (1 Peter 3:15) We can’t be prepared to make a defense if we aren’t engaged in the arena where the defense needs to be made.
Get in God’s Word, study it, and get yourself ready for a spiritual battle. The fight to save our nation is already in the words, the question just becomes: Are you going to be a part of the solution? Be obedient and trust God to work it all out in His sovereignty.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
