2013 Web Site Record
At the beginning of each year, we collect and analyze the electronic data pertaining to the impact of the A.P. Web site during the previous year. For the past several years, we have been thrilled to see the interest from around the world continue to build, resulting in new records each year. In 2012, the site received over 9.5 million pages viewed. And now the stats are compiled for 2013: 14,861,495! We continue to be humbled by the extent to which the A.P. Web site is reaching the world.
Why are we so pleased about such records? Only one reason: more people are being touched by the spiritual truths that we seek to disseminate. This organization has been in operation now for 35 years, and our purpose has remained unchanged: to produce materials that defend the Christian Faith, pointing people to the one true God and the one true religion. We recognize that our efforts are feeble, and that it is God Who “gives the increase” (1 Corinthians 3:7) by using such avenues of outreach to save lost souls. And we realize that the real power lies in the content—the truths that emanate from the mind of God Himself. His truth possesses inherent power to convince the “honest and good heart” (Luke 8:15). Hence, our job is simply to promulgate that information as far and wide as possible to make it easier for those who “seek” (Matthew 7:7) to find it.
For those who do not “resist the truth” (2 Timothy 3:8) or “turn their ears away from the truth” (2 Timothy 4:4), the evidence is available and accessible, “for God has shown it to them” (Romans 1:19). As the psalmist exclaimed: “Show me Your ways, O LORD; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day…. For the word of the LORD is right, and all His work is done in truth. Buy the truth, and do not sell it” (25:4-5; 33:4; 23:23). Or as Jesus declared: “If anyone wants to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority…. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 7:17; 8:32).
