Jesus and the Canaanite woman, from an illustrated Arabic manuscript, most likely created in Egypt by a Coptic monk in the 17th century He thinks he’s scoring a point. “If Jesus could change his mind when confronted with truth, maybe his followers should be willing to as well.” That is a minister named Brandan Robertson responding to a Stream story . He’d claimed that Jesus had said racist things, but then repented.
The self-described “progressive Christian” Robertson commends a clip from a Rev. Jacqui Lewis . Lewis thinks she shows Jesus changing his mind on a very big matter. After an exchange with a Canaanite woman, he suddenly realized that he’d misunderstood his mission. That’s a big Oops for the Son of God. But he was big enough to admit he was wrong.
If Jesus can do that, why can’t those silly people at The Stream ? The Story
To be fair, Lewis offers a plausible reading of the story. It’s one of the odder stories in the gospels, at least to our ears.
She speaks of Jesus’s encounter with the Canaanite woman. The story appears in Matthew (15:21-28) and Mark (7:24-30). She asks Jesus to heal her daughter, he ignores her, and the disciples ask him to send her away. He tells them he was only called to the children of Israel. The woman argues anyway. They banter back and forth, and when Jesus seems to give her a definite no, she deftly turns his words to make her own point.
Jesus says it would be wrong to give the children’s bread to the dogs. She notes that even the dogs get the crumbs from the master’s table. Samaritan woman FTW! Jesus praises her faith and heals her daughter.
Lewis tells the story. She implies that Jesus’s words about “the dogs” were beneath him and contradicted what he’d said before and after. She then asks, “And what does Jesus do?” Throwing out her hand with each word, she says deliberately, “Changes. His. Mind .”

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
