August 2022 EDW Report

Every month, Evangelical Dark Web provides report on the situation in the Spiritual War we are in, as well as any updates on the ministry itself. August was an explosive month for both the church and the Evangelical Dark Web.

The month began with the pro-life referendum failing which is to be blamed on the feminist messaging. The Southern Baptist Convention announced a new woke task force and they are apparently being investigated by the Department of Justice, the reasons for which have not been confirmed. The SBC insists that it is over sex abuse, but we have ample precedent to believe they would lie in a public statement. Additonally, multiple churches left the SBC and we announced a vote of no confidence in the Conservative Baptist Network.

Additionally, two figures on multiple occasions made headlines. Sean Feucht got into a spat with God TV in which the latter would back down. Additionally, Matt Chandler began the month closing a chapter on a sex abuse allegation that had had its day in court a long time ago when the Village Church settled a lawsuit with a accuser’s family. But that would be the lesser story for Chandler who would be placed on leave for unspecified reasons that may not even qualify as sin. Evangelical Dark Web provided a case for how the elders at the Village Church violated 1 Corinthians 6 by bringing in a law firm to make moral judgements. Although the position of Evangelical Dark Web has been that Matt Chandler is a false teacher, the abuse of the church discipline process and the precedent they are setting could have widespread impact if churches redefine “above reproach” to cancel pastors.

Quick Stats

Discernment

In August, we published the verdict on Rich Wilkerson Jr. of Vous Church. In September, we will hopefully have two verdicts. One on David Anderson to come out soon. The other on Louis Giglio who was voted on by the members here.

Videos

The YouTube channel for Evangelical Dark Web had its best month of the year, with multiple videos doing quite well given the size of the channel. The top four videos were all published from August. Additionally, the YouTube revenue was the highest ever but nothing worth bragging about. September will continue this momentum.

Website Updates

Evangelical Dark Web had its best month of the year as well. In part this was due to curation from other Christian ministries. Otherwise, it was in large part due to a successful ad campaign on Gab in which we increased our mailing list roughly 20%. The Christian parallel economy was quite effective for us. Evangelical Dark Web also invested in some equipment. August may have generated the most revenue to date which will be reinvested into the site.

“Patreon” System

Evangelical Dark Web has a tier subscription service. A lot of competitors have this (a term of endearment in this case) and for good reason. The purpose of this is not to make the founder of this site rich. This is a labor of love and will remain that way. The fog of Spiritual Warfare persists for those of us on the ground. We need accurate reporting that mainstream Christian websites are not providing either because they simp for celebrities, sold out to liberalism, or both. Consider joining. This will allow access to all the Evangelical Dark Web has to offer, like polls for the next discernment verdict.

  1. Good to hear Ray. Remember, “there is more joy in heaven over 1 sinner that repents than over 99 righteous…”, so you dont need big numbers to make a big difference! The money will come if it’s the Lord’s will. Also, I appreciate that you’re not always asking us for it. Keep up the good work.

    1. Yeah. It’s not about numbers. I just like to have a consistent record of transparency with regards to any money this generates.
