Family Tree Ministries, Inc. is a 501 c3 organization
I have a unique perspective about our 501 c 3 status. Some folks have a criticism about this status that goes something like this: You want the tax breaks offered to your 501c3 AT THE EXPENSE of speaking up politically against tyranny and defending life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This is Not true with me or Family Tree Ministries. To the contrary, I feel it is my duty to NOT be silent politically.
My understanding has always been (when I obtained our 501c3) that I am advertising my position that I support a Biblical World view and the Bible's definition of a true leader. I believe that my association with this 501 c 3 shows my willingness to make it a public priority to NOT be silent about my bias politically. I Will and Do support specific candidates, naming them and causes that promote a Biblical foundation to life and learning (part of our mission statement). I will continue to support causes and persons that teach and support our freedoms, a Biblical World view and programs that educate and inform those whom we serve.
The original documents sent to IRS in 1999 to obtain our 501c3 stated that we will speak out and endorse activities, including specific candidates and causes that promote a Biblical Foundation to Life and Learning. We will openly promote a Biblical world view, and those that promote a Biblical world view. We will seek to be politically active, praising specific candidates that espouse issues supporting Biblical truths, quality education and Constitutional freedoms.
