• Reader-Supported
Apologetics Index and Religion News Blog, published by AI, are provided as a free service to all guests. We don't want anyone to feel pressured into supporting us.

That said, Apologetics Index is a reader-supported ministry.

Apologetics Index is an independent, personal ministry - not sponsored by any church, organization, ministry or individual.

Thing is, due to their respective health situations, Anton and Janet Hein - the publishers of Apologetics Index - live on a minimum income. Quite frankly, our budget does not allow us to carry the costs associated with the running of two high-traffic sites.

Therefore, we rely on donations in order to pay for site- and ministry related expenses, such as:
  • monthly ISP bill (our internet access):
    79.95/month ($96/month)
  • our web-hosting bills (from the service where our sites are located):
    1 x $44.95, and 1 x $69.95 = $114.90/month (Two accounts on semi-dedicated servers with plenty of space and high-bandwidth allowance for Apologetics Index and Religion News Blog)
  • domain names (e.g. apologeticsindex.org, countercult.com, religionnewsblog.com, and 15 more, pointing at various sections and services of Apologetics Index):
    $180/year
  • upkeep of computer equipment
    (New equipment needed soon)
  • upgrades of web-building programs and utilities
  • backup CDs
  • purchase of research material
  • other ministry-related expenses (phone, postage, etcetera).
Donations are needed, welcome and much appreciated.

    Articles

    We would like to make a larger, growing collection of high-quality Christian articles available at this site.

    If you write such articles, from a Christian perspective (see our Statement of Faith), please email us at webmaster@apologeticsindex.org.


    • Software / Hardware
    We could put the following items to good use:
    • Electronic Books for the Logos Library System (Christian reference materials)
    • Digital camera


    • Prayer
    The Internet provides wonderful opportunities for evangelism and ministry. While online interaction can never take the place of face-to-face fellowship, it nevertheless is a useful tool. For example, the Apologetics Index daily generates a lot of email: prayer requests, questions about the Bible, requests for information on cults, doctrines, teachings, practices, etcetera - from Christians and non-Christians alike.

    Please keep us - and the Apologetics Index - in prayer, as we do our best to answer as many emails as possible.

    On a personal level: I am considered disabled due to ME/CFS - better known as Chronic Fatique Syndrome - an illness characterized by (among other symptoms) extreme fatique. My wife has Fibromyalgia, a similar illness.


    Thanks for your help!

    Love in Jesus,

    Anton and Janet Hein
    Publishers, Apologetics Index
