Precious Testimonies Evangelistic Ministries
grants full permission without contacting us to forward any writing or video
segment we have on our website to another by means of email, Facebook, and any
other means of transmission. In fact, we STRONGLY encourage it! (That's one of
God's primarily calls’ for this ministry: Multiplying spiritual seed). All we
ask is that they are not sold, but distributed free of charge.
We also grant full permission without any need to contact us if you desire to print copies of any writing we have on our website to help multiply spiritual seed. Again, all we ask is that they are not sold, but distributed free of charge.
We also grant full permission without any need to contact us if you desire to post any writing from our website on to your website, or another, or anywhere else via the use of Internet technology -- or link to it if you desire -- providing you state clearly that the writing originates from Precious Testimonies Evangelist Ministries. (We do this, not because we desire or expect attention drawn to this ministry, but because people who trust us with publishing their testimonies and/or writings -- they expect this ministry to NOT let Satan have undo opportunity to use their testimonies or writing be used for monetary gain ... projecting an impression that people are testifying and/or writing to MAKE MONEY AT IT).
Regarding the above three permission grantals, all we request is that the wording and punctuation of each document is not altered in any way without express written permission from the individual author and/or originating ministry of the writing.
Regarding book publishing: Precious Testimonies Evangelistic Ministries DOES NOT grant written permission for any individual/s or book publisher to publish any testimonies from the Precious Testimonies website. However - if an individual or a book publisher wishes to use a testimony from the Precious Testimonies website to be included in a book or booklet, phamplet, or magazine, etc. … they must contact the testifier directly and receive written permission from the testifier to use the testifier’s testimony in the book, booklet, pamphlet, magazine, etc., being published. Important: Neither the testifier nor the publisher publishing the testifier’s testimony needs the written or verbal permission from Precious Testimonies Evangelistic Ministries to accomplish this process.
Another matter about book/pamphlet (etc.)
publishing: Once a testimony gets published in a book, if a testifier requests
to have their testimony removed from the book or wording changes made, which
many times happens [especially in divorce-remarriage situations] that is nearly
impossible to do without stopping the distribution of the entire testimonial
book. Whereas, if a testimony gets published on a website, the proprietor
of that website can remove that testimony, should the testifier request, and/or
make any requested changes almost immediately (which we do from time to time).
Again – Please try to understand why we make the above stipulations. We want God to be able to use the testimonies and spiritual writings on the Precious Testimonies website to reach as many people as possible. Nevertheless, over time, many testifiers have clearly told us that the ONLY reason they are sending (have sent) us their testimonies to publish is because Precious Testimonies does not project the impression to viewers and listeners that we are “after people’s money.” Saying it a little differently: “We are not doing this ministry for personal financial gain, though we are letting people know that they can sow finances (contributions) into this ministry if they desire to help us pay ministry expenses.”
We want to make a couple of things very clear about the ownership of each testimony we publish on the Precious Testimonies website, whether written, audio, and/or video. THE TESTIFIER/S OWN’S THEIR TESTIMONY. Precious Testimonies Evangelistic Ministries does NOT. The testifier has exclusive rights to have their testimonies removed from the Precious Testimonies website any time they choose, or request changes be made to their testimony. [We make every reasonable effort to make SURE who is requesting changes be made to a testimony, however; especially when someone requests to have it removed completely off the Precious Testimonies website].
Bottom line in all this: We desire as many people as possible to have the opportunity to read or hear the testimonies we feel God wants us to publish, and that Satan is not granted an easier open door to harass either the testifier, officers of this ministry, or the ministry itself.
Furthermore, if contact information of the testifier is not given at the end of a testifier’s testimony, we seldom will give out their contact information to anyone requesting it, even if we have current contact information, which in so many cases we don’t as time passes, (Because testifiers neglect to keep us informed of updated contact changes; Satan took our email contacts out which has happened twice since Precious Testimonies started. And - It's amazing how many testifiers have been promoted to heaven, and evidently they don't have cellphone technology yet where they reside in glory. (THANK GOD! Just kidding - hope you realize).
Duplicating (making copies) or reusing any video segments or parts thereof on our website and CHARGING FOR THEM is NOT granted by Precious Testimonies Evangelist Ministries. (We ENCOURAGE God's people to help make video segments we produce as much available as possible to the masses, but again, we do NOT want to project any image or impression that we are doing what we are doing through this ministry for MONEY. We realize this is not a popular stand we take by some, but if we could contact the Apostle Paul, we suspect we have his blessing for taking the stand we take regarding "Not doing what we do for the Lord and expect to make money by donations in the process, (Though we realize how biblical it is - especially Pastors and Evangelists and Evangelistic ministries - to live by financial donations from those God gives them to minister to)".
