Hey folks,

     Would you do me a favor?  I'm going to ask you to take just a few minutes and read through the testimonials in this newsletter, and then prayerfully consider whether or not the Bible Christian Society is worthy of your support.  Yes, this is my semi-annual "10 cent" appeal for your financial support - support which helps us to reach hundreds of thousands of people all over the country, and around the world, with the truths of the Catholic Faith. 

"Your website is a great resource for us here in the Philippines."
- Eugenio S.

     These testimonials, from folks who have gotten ahold of the materials we offer through the Bible Christian Society, will give you some idea of the scope of our work and why, I believe, we are worthy of your support.  There are quotes here from people all over the world.  And, what makes me happier than anything, is that most of the quotes are from folks who haven't just used our materials to deepen their own understanding of the faith, but they have then used what they've learned to evangelize others.  That is the real power of what we do here!  We teach the Catholic Faith in such a way that others can not only understand it better, but they can easily repeat what they've learned so as to share the faith with others and teach them, too!

     That's because we make it simple.  Our methodology relies a lot on common sense and simple logic - not on deep study in Theology or Philosophy.  Not that deep study in those areas of discipline is bad or anything, it's not!  It's all good.  But, the vast majority of Catholics are not in a situation where they can make a deep study of Theology and Philosophy, so they need materials that are easy to understand and, just as importantly, easy to repeat.  That is the strength of the Bible Christian Society.  Most folks can take what we do, make it their own, and repeat it to others, thus planting seeds of the faith.

     Also, one other thing that we've been doing the last few years, that I don't know of any other Catholic apostolate doing anything similar, is engaging the general public using mass media and social media.  We just finished a billboard campaign here in Alabama - in Birmingham and Huntsville - over the last few months that put various ads about the Catholic Church out there to be seen by hundreds of thousands of people.  Certain pages on our website were hit thousands of times as a result.  We've used TV ads, full page newspaper ads, ads on Facebook and Youtube, millions of banner ads on the internet, targeted email blasts, geofencing, and more.  Cutting edge marketing techniques that have helped to plant seeds of the faith with literally millions of people in the last few years.  And more is on the way.  I'm currently talking to a donor about doing a billboard evangelization campaign across the entire Southeastern United States!  But we need your help to keep going.

     So, after reading these testimonials below, please pray about supporting us.  Definitely we need your prayer support - first and foremost - but if you could also provide some financial support, it would help us continue to make the kind of impact you will be reading about below.

     And remember, all I ever ask for is 10 cents a day.  That's it.  10 cents a day - $3.00 per month.  If you can do more...great!  But if you could do at least the 10 cents...it would be greatly appreciated!  (By the way, we have recently revamped our "Donations" page on the website, making it easier to make regular donations, removing PayPal as the main credit card processor, and allowing donations via e-checks.) 

     (Please think of all of these statements below as being directed to you, because it is only due to your support that any of this is possible!)


"My wife was coming home from the Columbiana library with children in tow and saw your awesome billboard and it made her day. So wonderful to see the Catholic faith proclaimed in this heavily protestant area!  We see another one on the way to Blessed Sacrament off I-65 north. Yesterday I loaded the link and we all took the quiz together - it’s the Catholic Church man!"
-Bart S.
Birmingham, AL
[If you haven't already taken the quiz, give it a go: www.biblechristiansociety.com/quiz]
"I get emails from John and I feel like I'm missing out by not being in the fb group. He helps me understand my Catholic faith." 
- Jacqui B
Auckland, NZ
[She recently joined our Facebook page - John Martignoni and the Bible Christian Society.  If you haven't joined yet...check it out!]
"I want to thank you for all that you have done to bring me into the Catholic Church and also to keep me in the Catholic Church.  I was almost deceived by Mike Gendron.  Now I realize he is deceived and spreading false information about the Catholic Church."
- Jeff S.
[We featured a number of Gendron's falsehoods in the last few newsletters.]
"After I converted by the power of God through your explanations, I dove really deep in apologetics and have since planted my own seeds that has lead my father - a Pentecostal preaching, rapture believing man to the Catholic Church this Easter Vigil.  Also, my best friend and his wife converted.  We drove from Georgia to Florida last week to be their sponsors and the godparents for their two youngest at their Baptism. So because of the way God lead me to your talks and your talks lead me to seek God in the Catholic Church, in the last three years, through God's power and your ministry, there are several new Catholics!"
- Michael T.
Dawsonville, GA
I'm in Australia and have been talking/debating with a Baptist woman on MeWe [who lives in Alabama] who is now checking out your site, listening to Dr Scott Hahn, Tim Staples, Steve Ray, etc.  If it wasn't for you, your website and your talks, my confidence in speaking to Protestants (like this woman) would be nowhere near what it is today. I even debated a Seventh Day Adventist pastor in my home for ten and a half hours, simply using the tactics and reasoning you teach."
- Cam M.

"My name is Marcus Peter and I am a revert from Pentecostalism. To keep this very brief, I grew up in Malaysia and, years ago, I was attacking the Catholic Church when the Holy Spirit led me to your work. I downloaded everything you had and it formed the basis of my study back into the Church. I was on the Journey Home recently and I give you and your work a mention."

- Marcus Peter

Plymouth, MI

[And he now has his own evangelization apostolate - the St. Peter Institute (stpeterinstitute.com) where he is reaching even more people with the truths of the Catholic Faith, which is why he was on The Journey Home with Marcus Grodi.]


"I'm Brother Ephrem, currently residing in Slovakia...I would like to ask you for help. We are a community of priests and brothers residing in Hungarian-speaking region (In the south of Slovakia) where Catholic faith was very weakened during communism and in the years that followed. Now we would like to start to publish a monthly magazine on Catholic faith and spirituality to help people know more about the Catholic Faith. Since the large community of protestant christians live here, we would like to bring some apologetics also. For this reason I was thinking about the possibility of translating some of the material on your website - especially we would be interested in "Two-Minute Apologetics" (if you would give us a consent to it) into Hungarian language."
- Brother Ephrem M. Havrila
[Consent was indeed given and I'll pass along to you any updates I hear from them about their publishing adventure.]
"I had the opportunity to address the "filthy rags" quote [the subject of one of our recent newsletters] with a dear Protestant friend recently . I don't think I got through to her, as the "filthy rags" idea is so deeply ingrained in her tradition, but I hope that I planted a seed. I wouldn't have had that seed to plant without your newsletter!"
- Toni C.
Escondido, CA
     "My name is Kitdor Pyngrope and I am from a small town in Meghalaya, India. I want you to know that your Teachings and Audios from your website as well as YouTube are really powerful messages and they changed me as I was struggling in my faith.  It was a real blessing. Thank you so much.
     "Besides that, I then came to realise that I am very much drawn to Apologetics when I myself started evangelizing to a friend who is a Catholic. Well, you see, Apologetics is never on our radar and many Catholics are leaving The Church because they met some zealous protestants who have taught and evangelized them that Catholicism is all false and man made. It just breaks my heart to see them walk away. So, there is this urge in me, that I have to do something before more souls are being misled.
    "Therefore, I have downloaded your audios and newsletters from your website and I kindly request your permission if I could make notes, teach and share them with the people of my parish and other parishes as well. It would be a great blessing to our fellow Parishioners of Sacred Heart Shrine Parish, Shillong, Meghalaya, India."
- Kitdor Carmello Pyngrope
Shillong, Meghalaya,
[Permission was indeed given.]

Closing Comments

     All of these testimonials - from the U.S., Australia, India, New Zealand, Slovakia, the Philippines - and the many others we receive on a weekly basis, are all because of your support for this apostolate.  You have helped us to bring the truths of the Catholic Faith to a whole bunch of folks here in the U.S. and in many countries around the world, and through them we are reaching tens or even hundreds of thousands more. 
     But there is so much more we can be doing...so many more souls we need to reach with these truths...so many more people who need to be brought closer to Jesus Christ through His Church.  So, again, please prayerfully consider supporting us.
