ABOUT THE FIVE STONES VENTURE, INC

FSV vigorously defends those whose liberty is at risk.

When David was preparing to fight Goliath, the King put on the finest armor to prepare him for his fight. David shed the traditional armor and weapons and instead carefully chose five stones for his shepherd’s bag to use in his fight. In our battles against the Goliaths of today’s world, we adhere to the following principles, upon which the Five Stones Venture was founded:

 

We first put our faith in Christ.

While we do not require members or clients to adhere to our beliefs, the organization is founded on a traditional Christian belief system and Biblical values are instilled in the operation of the corporation;

We carefully choose our “stones”...

...by seeking specific cases to litigate and issues on which to educate that will have a strong impact in our Country;

We prepare.

Put simply, we have seen far too much complacency and tolerance for losing the culture war. Remember, defeating Goliath is the goal: learning how to use the sling is far more valuable than showing up in the finest armor with weapons that you don’t know how to use;

We innovate.

We seek always to shed the traditional if it is cumbersome and ineffective, replacing it will skill and efficiency where applicable.
