Friends and brethren in Christ, greetings!
It has always been our endeavor to present our Christian Identity message in as scholarly a manner as possible, and then to make it as ubiquitous as possible. It is therefore also our objective to inject Christian Identity into the public dialog wherever possible, whether people like it or not. Of course, I expect most people to hate it, which is a warning in the Gospel and also the experience of the Prophets themselves. But knowing that most of our own kindred will never like us, and that we will never be popular, I am always looking for new ways to share our message regardless.
The PDF versions of our Saxon Messenger magazine are frequently downloaded, and they are available in print. The print versions are very high quality, but they are expensive and offer comparatively little content for the price. However they are still worthwhile to produce, and they are very professionally done so they are also worthwhile to own. This, we believe, gives our message a respectable appearance and that goes a long way towards getting people to look at it. So while we have slowed production of Saxon Messengers issues, we will still continue to publish issues of the magazine at least several times each year.
However we believe that our podcasts are much more effective, and for nearly three years now over 50,000 podcasts each month are downloaded from Christogenea.org. Occasionally the number is much higher than that. However sharing our message by getting someone to listen to a podcast, and especially some of our older podcasts, requires getting them to search through our extensive archives. We understand that is a burden for some people, and especially those who have limited computer time.
Therefore our newest endeavor is to make our podcasts publicly available on CD, and to make them affordable. We hope that people will find these CDs to be a valuable witnessing tool. Each CD, or CD set, will contain all of our program notes (if they are published at Christogenea), and sometimes other items such as related images or scans from books used in our presentations, as well as the MP3 podcasts themselves. The CDs can be used in a computer or in any CD player which is able to play MP3s. Such players are now becoming quite popular.
Since it is evident that many more people would rather listen to our CDs than read our material in print, and since CDs can hold much more material at a far smaller production cost, we hope that these CDs become a valuable tool in spreading our message. The average CD will be available for less than $5 and we plan on including as many as 15 MP3s on each disk. These are far less expensive than the average music CD.
We have begun with a two-CD set of our Commentary on the Book of Acts, which was broadcast over 35 programs in 2013 and early 2014, and with a CD containing our Commentary on the Prophecy of Amos, broadcast in 10 parts in early 2013. We hope to make many more of our podcasts available in this format in the very near future. The retail price of the Acts set is $7.29, and Amos $4.59. Shipping and handling is well under $2 per set for US orders.
Of course, all of these podcasts and all of our notes and other writings will always be freely available at Christogenea. However our books, magazines, and now our CDs give people opportunities to disseminate our message face-to-face and away from the computer. Of course, sales of such items also help to support our ministry and fund future research, podcasts and writing.
Thank you for your support.
