"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
2 Timothy 2:15

I wish we could afford everything ourselves, but we can't, and so money becomes a necessity for us to do what we do here. As of March of 2016, I will no longer have a job (I've worked a job for the past seven years to provide for this ministry), and we have decided to try putting me on working this ministry full time; however, Lorraine is still working a full time job because we could not survive without at least one of us having a paycheck coming in. Many people get the impression that we get tons of donations from many people, but we don't. I took care of most of our basic bills with my job, so now we're riding on faith that our needs will be covered while I work to provide more materials.

Money we receive goes to paying our basic bills (e.g. electricity, phone, internet, etc), emergency things we need (e.g. car or computer repairs), and we also save back money to print tracts and make DVDs to hand out to the lost in our area. Most church buildings and websites never talk about where the money goes, and I want to make sure everyone understands that we're not trying to buy a 65 million dollar jet, we're just trying to pay our bills so we can keep working. If our materials have helped you and your family, and the Lord God has convicted you to help us share the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ with others, consider charitably sending us something by mail:

Through PayPal
(Paypal takes 4% of what you give as a transfer fee, so mailing something is cheaper in most cases.)

Concerning Paypal, we request that Christians be responsible, and never give us something in debt on a credit card. Only give if you have the money, don't borrow it from a corporation.

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
-Luke 6:34

Because we give away all our materials for free, it puts us in a position where we must rely on the cheerful givers, and every little bit helps. We absolutely refuse to become a corporate sellout shopping mall like most leavened "ministries" out there.

Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
-Proverbs 23:23

Lorraine and I hope we have been charitable to you
in all our work to provide our materials free as a gift.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing... And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
-1 Corinthians 13:2-13

On the evening of Dec 31st, I had a guy mention that people were calling him and asking him what he was doing for New Year's. I said, "Oh, is that today?" He just laughed. What was humorous to me is that I was serious, and I didn't even realize it was New Year's Eve until he said that, but he thought I was joking because, to him, it would be absurd for anyone to not know or care. I'm so tired of hearing about the holiday junk; I'm very thankful it's over, and am not looking forward to next year's round of hearing complaints from people whining about their favorite time of idolatry and gluttony.
In previous months on this update, I have complained about not being able to get my wife out of work, and I realize that I was whining, and I should just be thankful to the Lord Jesus Christ that I can do this at all, and even though we don't have much, I feel like a king being able to write in ministry for a living. However, just to give some perspective, Lorraine can bring in more in four days of work than I can bring in with a month's worth of donations to our ministry. There's one guy that sends us something every month, and he actually accounts for roughly one-third of our average donations we get, so between this one unnamed man (who knows who he is) and my wife, they are most of the financial backbone of why I can continue to do this full-time. It's because Lorraine has been supporting me so much in this that I feel horrible; I would rather be financially supporting her more than the other way around, but for now, I've been able to maintain paying our main utility bills and repairs through donations, and anything else has to be saved for some maintenance we have to do on the house this spring.
I've only been going full-time for about 10 months now, and because I've released a lot of new teachings that have irritated a lot more people, our donations have slowly started sliding down, which has left me with some concern as to whether I'll have to go back to find a job again. We'll see, but either way, I'll do my best to give praise to the Lord Jesus Christ for the things I don't yet understand.
Many people who listen to and read our material on a regular basis don't see as many articles coming out recently, and I suspect some of them may believe I'm slacking off on producing new teachings. I assure you, this is not the case. The difference is that now that I'm working full-time in this, I'm actually producing books. What I've been working on for the past month is a book on exposing Freemasonry, and I don't know how long it's going to take me to finish, but there will be plenty of well-researched and documented information when I release it, and as usually, whether book or article, I release it for free.
As I've said before, I've been kinda' down because how long I'll spend to write a book, like the one on feminism, only to have almost no one read it, and can't even afford to have it published because I release everything for free. It's very difficult to provide for my family and household when trying to teach the truth because, as we know, people don't want to hear it; they'd rather pay for fiction than fact.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
-2 Timothy 4:3-5

I'm not saying to request more donations; don't misunderstand. All donations should be given freely by the conviction of the Holy Spirit, not by my request. The Lord God will take care of us whether people send us something or not; however, I do have to make it clear that without financial support, I would have to go seek work, and if I do that, I likely won't be able to write at the higher-quality level I've been producing, and it's also likely I'll have to cut back on doing teachings every week.
Please understand that if I were wealthy, I'd just do this and not even have a donation option. It's not that I want this to happen, but please understand that most of these mainstream shopping malls--I mean, "ministries" pay their people salaries, and Lorraine and I don't get one of those. In addition to this, I make a lot of people angry, so that doesn't help us much either, and so what I'll do is just pray that our needs be met and keep working as faithfully as I can. (And hopefully, this time I won't whine so much. :)

Donating to our ministry consists of more than just money, because we cannot share the Gospel alone. It takes huge amounts of time for me to research and write articles, work on our website, create podcasts, print out materials, pass-out materials, and numerous other projects we would like to complete, on top of teaching every Sunday at our church, my own personal studies, and having to work jobs to upkeep our home. Like I said, I run almost all this ministry by myself, and I am only one man; I can only do so much. (I would also encourage people to read our FAQ on "I want to volunteer to help this ministry, what can I do?")
We need the help of other dedicated Christian brethren to take some of the ever-increasing load:

--Online Sharing/Social Media--
As we produce new articles and videos, I have little resources to spread the word on a variety of social media outlets. Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest, MySpace, LiveJournal, Tagged, Orkut, Ning, etc, and thousands of internet forums (not to mention personal emails and print-outs to hand out to others), we need a large group of Christians spreading out our material as often as possible, and right now we have very few helping out with this. We highly appreciate the help of anyone who helps us spread the truth of Biblical doctrines in our teachings, and we consider these folks very important volunteers, and the backbone of what we do. (The Bible says those behind the scenes are more worthy of honor. 1Co 12:23) Outside of financial assistance, this is probably the biggest need we have right now because I have a lot of material that almost never sees the light of day, and if we can't reach people, there's no point to any of what I'm doing.
(Example: Pick your favorite topic [dinosaurs, holidays, atheism, etc], find an article on our website relating to that topic, and copy the URL link. Then go to a social media site [Google+, Twitter, Facebook, etc], and search for posts with similar topics. Comment and paste the article link into a response to share the information with others.)

--A Skilled Artist--
For those of you who have read a lot of our articles and watched our seminars, you know that I like to provide visuals when I can. I also like to make humorous images when I can, and I like to put my own personal touch on them, but Lorraine and I can't afford to pay for them out of our own pocket, so I've learned how to make my own stuff to the limited extent I have skill to do so. If there is an artist that's willing to volunteer to put to paper some concepts I have for certain projects, make some stuff and send it to us.
You don't really need to contact us to inquire about a project; we have to borrow images from other people all the time that I use for editing, so if there is any image on our website you think you can improve so we don't run into any copyright problems in the future, send it to us; we'd love to see it. Over the years since I had this support page up, we've had many people write and talk to us about it, telling us they are going to work on things or send us their artwork, but not one person has ever actually sent us anything they've produced, so we're waiting for people to start doing things instead of just talking about doing things.

--Speaking Engagements--
We need Christians who are willing to contact their local church leadership, organizations, and radio stations to schedule presentations, radio interviews, etc. I have spoken on Atheism, Evolutionism, Church Issues, Government, Paganism & Holidays, and much more in church buildings, conference halls, and radio shows. We need to get the truth to the congregations so we can warn them of the dangers that have infiltrated the Church of Christ. Churches can contact us to give presentations for fund-raisers for their own ministries and missionaries, and we do not charge a dime (i.e. FREE); we are happy to be servants if the Lord is willing. This is something that makes me sad sometimes because I know so many pastors and church-goers hate what we do in our ministry, even though I used to love speaking to large audiences, and if I ever get the chance to do it again, I would very much enjoy it.
(Please do NOT contact us with a phone number and tell us to contact a pastor. We have had 0% success doing that over the years, and it does nothing to volunteer or help us--it only adds to our work load. We're willing to prepare the material and show up, so we need Christians to take the responsibility on themselves to organize it and make it happen.)

--Send Us Your Public School or College Textbook--
For those of you who follow our articles and seminars, you know that we use public school textbooks in demonstrating current evolutionary teachings in the classrooms. If you have a public school, private school, or college science textbook, and would like to donate yours, you can send it to us at the P.O. Box address above so we can add more samples to our seminars and articles. (Please include information on where they are locally used.)
