RTV's statement below is dishonest and misleading. Feeding misinformation to the public to their own advantage is to pre-empt the outcome of the investigation. This is completely unacceptable. RTV should be made to retract their deceptive statement: ".....the Charity Commission has identified no loss or misappropriation of charitable funds by the trustees”.
"A spokeswoman from the Commission told Civil Society News that this part of the statement was completely untrue."
Statement from Revelation TV 16th June 2015
"After a thorough investigation of Revelation Foundation over nine months the Charity Commission has identified no loss or misappropriation of charitable funds by the trustees. (!!!) The day to day operations of Revelation Foundation have continued throughout, without interference from the Charity Commission and no criticism has been made of programme content or production. The Charity Commission has noted the legal and accounting complexities of Revelation Foundation’s activities in the UK and Spain and has appointed an accountant to act as an interim manager to work with the trustees to resolve issues relating to the legal and accounting procedures of Revelation Foundation and its associated Spanish companies. The trustees have nothing to hide and welcome this appointment and will draw upon the expertise of the accountant and his team to ensure the public have full assurance as to the work of the trust."
The Charity Commission can take the very serious step of appointing an Interim Manager to act in the administration of a charity after opening a statutory inquiry if it considers that:
- there has been misconduct or mismanagement in the administration of a charity or
- it is necessary or desirable to protect the charity’s property
Conder's manners do not improve. His verbal abuse now extends to the Charity Commission as well as to his critics. He called the Charity Commission "despicable" and at one point at about 50 minutes in he said "duh - how thick can you get." I am sure he will continue to endear himself to the Commission in the future!
No one who practices deceit shall dwell in my house; no one who utters lies shall continue before my eyes. (Psalm 101:7)
SATANIC ATTACK OR STUPIDITY?
RTV take the deluded view that the investigation by the Charity Commission is the work of Satan and they frequently bemoan this so called "fact".
"We do believe that we are in a spiritual battle. Certainly the enemy is using the investigation to cause us to have a great deal of time taken away from ‘Kingdom business.’"
It is very unwise of RTV to publish such statements, but we should not be surprised. Such remarks are likely to alienate both the nonchristian general public and the Charity Commission. They do nothing to promote the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
What RTV calls "Kingdom business" is rank apostasy. I am positive that Satan is very happy to let RTV continue airing their false teachings without interference. Even if this investigation were the work of Satan (and it is not) then RTV should be rejoicing. The apostle Paul's view of hardship and persecution stands in stark contrast to the beligerant attitude of RTV (Philippians 3:8-10..... See also Romans 10:1, 12:12; 1 Corinthians 11:24; 2 Timothy 3:12; James 1:2-4; 1 Peter 2:23).
