“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. "
[Matt 13:44, Bible, NKJV]
everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and
to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more."
[Luke 12:48, Bible, NKJV]
"Araunah said to David, 'Let my lord the king take whatever he wishes and offer it up. Here are oxen for the burnt offering, and here are threshing sledges and ox yokes for the wood. Your Majesty, Araunah gives all this to the king.” Araunah also said to him, 'May the Lord your God accept you.'
But the king replied to Araunah, 'No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.' "
[1 Sam. 24:22-24, Bible, NIV]
Our way of stating the above is: "Give the LORD what is RIGHT, not what is LEFT."

Below is a sample inquiry that you can fill in with your question:
I am a Member in full compliance with the Member Agreement, Form #01.001 as it currently exists and will only employ the information or services provided by the ministry for tax years in which I am in full compliance if my question relates to taxes. This correspondence constitutes one of the three questions I am allowed under under Member Subscriptions, Order number: ____________. I certify that:
- I am not asking for legal advice and that I will not regard your answer as legal advice.
- My question does not have a commercial purpose.
- I will not regard your answer as either actionable or factual.
My question is as follows:
I have attached a PDF containing the first and last page of my signed Member Agreement as proof of my membership status. If it is not attached because I don't have a scanner or PDF software, I stipulate that this correspondence shall constitute legal evidence of constructive, perpetual, and unconditional consent to the SEDM Member Agreement, Form #01.001.
This section describes the various kinds of accounts and corresponding usernames/passwords used by us in providing various online services to Ministry Members. Each separate service uses its own unique and different username and password and it is important for Members to understand the differences so that they can minimize the number of usernames and passwords they have to write down or memorize in order to use our services. The table below provides a succinct summary:
|#||Account type||Community||Description||Creator of
|1||SEDM Bookstore||Basic Members||Used to order from our Bookstore and join our Member Emailing List||You||Your email address (ONLY)|
|2||SEDM Forums||Basic Members
|Used to access SEDM Forums.
Used to access:
|You||Anything you want. Use an anonymous name.|
We are well aware of the frequently expressed requirement by our esteemed Members to integrate our various services together so as to require only one username and password to access all online ministry services. We recognize the burden imposed on our Members of having to maintain multiple account names and passwords for various services. The reason we continue to have two separate accounts and passwords for the various services is NOT because we want to, but because:
Rather than complain to us about the inconvenience of having multiple usernames and passwords to access our online services, we therefore solicit your help as indicated in item 1 above in minimizing the number of usernames and passwords. Our Support Page, Section 3.3, provides a video tutorial on how to change your Forum and Bookstore accounts to use the same username, email address, and password. Click here to view this tutorial.
The classification of a specific form, publication, or litigation tool is indicated in the column entitled "Source" on the Forms/Publications page or the Litigation Tools page. Forms, publications, and litigation tools which are designated as "Member Subscription" will have "Member Subscriptions" in that column.
Below is a list of reasons why we place specific materials in our Member Subscription Area. Specifically, we want to:
7.1 Those who intend to use our materials to violate any law applicable to the jurisdiction where they are domiciled. Our member Agreement forbids this and they must consent to it before they sign up.
7.3 "Tax deniers", "tax defiers", or "tax protesters". We don't protest "taxes", but crime. We think everyone who uses government services should pay for what they use. Likewise, we believe that those who don't want government services should not be compelled to either accept them or pay for them.
7.4 Those who are ignorant and/or presumptuous about anything.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge [ignorance].”
[Hosea 4:6, Bible, NKJV]
7.5 Those who refuse to learn or enforce the law themselves.
“One who turns his ear from hearing the law [God's law or man's law], even his prayer is an abomination.”
[Prov. 28:9, Bible, NKJV]
7.6 Those who have commercial motives. Such people are scared away by the prospect of having to pay any amount of money, even for things that might be valuable such as a Member Subscription. Our Member Agreement, Form #01.001 forbids commercial motivations for using our materials. None of the materials on this website are intended for a commercial purpose, but for religious, moral, and law enforcement purposes.
"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.”
[1 Timothy 6:5-12, Bible, NKJV]
8.1 Being blamed for the consequences of any of the choices of others.
8.2 Being compelled involuntarily and without compensation to act as insurance company that indemnifies others from having to accept and perform the obligations of citizenship, which include supervising public servants and prosecuting them for their wrongdoing.
8.3 Having the character of our speech changed from that of only opinions and beliefs that are NONfactual and not admissible as evidence pursuant to F.R.E. 610 into factual speech that is actionable in order to compel us to become an insurance company for the bad or irresponsible actions or choices of others.
10.1 A periodic newsletter.
10.2 Expanded litigation support.
10.3 Online video training.
10.4 Video conferences and online meetings.
10.5 A complete government based on our Self Government Federation: Articles of Confederation, Form #10.003. This would include an ecclesiastical court system that members can use to resolve disputes, and the ability to issue enforceable judgments against offenders.
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the [corrupt] tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the [totally corrupt] tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
[Jesus in Matt. 5:43-48, BIble, NKJV]
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
[Matt. 7:12, Bible, NKJV]
For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely,
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of [ALL] the law."
[Romans 13:9-10, Bible, NKJV]
"When a man’s ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him."
[Prov. 16:7, Bible, NKJV]
“Do not strive with a man [or a government of men] without cause, if he has done you no harm.”
[Prov. 3:30, Bible, NKJV]
"Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man [WHICH IS ONLY] for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men— as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king."
[1 Peter 2:13-17, Bible, NKJV]
"Do not curse the king, even in your thought; Do not curse the rich, even in your bedroom; For a bird of the air may carry your voice, And a bird in flight may tell the matter."
[Ecc. 10:20, Bible, NKJV]
"Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion. Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men."
[Romans 12:14-18, Bible, NKJV]
"Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food [Social Security] sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears."
[Heb. 12:14-17, Bible, NKJV]
