While we wait for Charity Commissions inquiry into the Revelation Foundation to come to a conclusion, several things are now coming to light which should horrify any discerning viewer of Revelation TV (RTV).


Conder and his wife have denied any involvement with, or knowledge of, "Howies" bar/club in La Cala. THEY LIED!!! There is unequivocal evidence which shows their involvement:

The Registrant Organisation for HOWIESCLUB.COM is 21st Century Television Ltd
Registrant Name: Howard Conder:

It would appear that Howard Conder invested the "dirty money" he made from false bible teachers into Howies bar/club and also a luxury yacht whilst at the same time claiming on Building the Foundation that RTV is run on a shoestring and can hardly make ends meet. Many viewers responded generously to Conder and Pettie's frequent appeals for funds, and gave out of their poverty sacrificially because of the sincerity of their commitment to Christ. This is deception of a terrible kind and I hope the findings of Charity Commission will go some way towards ex-contributors being empowered to legally claim their money back.

Please read Sarah Acotts post for more unsavoury details about Howies bar/club:

The Conder children have also raised some eyebrows, given the fact that they have all been employed by RTV at one time or another. Luke Conder's involvement in Playboy parties called “Snogg and Sintillate” (sin til late) for example:


Howard Conder's Delusional Behaviour 

Howard Conder's delusional/irrational behaviour has caused consternation in several quarters and it has been very damaging to a number of people. He has accused, threatened, vilified and lied about others unremittingly, even calling his critics "demons bullies and creeps". Self control and discipline are essential qualifications for those in Christian leadership (1 Timothy 3:2; Titus 1:5-9). Sadly the essential qualities necessary for a credible Christian witness (2 Peter 1:5-11; 2 Timothy 1:7) are demonstrably lacking in Conder, whose repeated outbursts, both verbal and written, have been truly shocking.


Unsurprisingly, given Conder's temperament, plans for an arbitration meeting with Sarah Acott and Sheila xxxxxx have turned into a complete fiasco. Sarah Acott has reported these details on on her blog: https://godvschristianity.wordpress.com/2015/06/06/apologies-and-a-call-for-arbitration-conder-digs-a-bigger-hole/

Talking about Qualifications

It is a fallacy that anyone who uses the prefix title “doctor” before their name has successfully completed the appropriate academic course study, and has been awarded a doctorate degree by an accredited university.

A growing problem is the huge number of Mickey Mouse honorary doctorate degrees that have been given to financial patrons of universities as well as those that have been granted by non-accredited colleges. Many who receive these honorary “degrees” immediately append the “doctor” title to their names, and they do so with no disclosure about their lack of appropriate educational achievement. In my view this is unethical.

RTV presenter "Dr Hugh" aka "Pastor" Hugh Jackman is one such person who has availed himself of an Honorary Doctorate in Ministry (Dmin), awarded by Excel University in November 2014.

"Rev. Dr" Felicity Corbin-Wheeler appears in Get Well Stay Well on RTV. Corbin-Wheeler is NOT a medical doctor, she is an honorary Doctor of Divinity (DD). This would be an impressive qualification if gained in the UK, however in the US it is an honorary degree. 

"Dr" Grady McMurtry - DD, School of Theology, Columbus, Georgia - 1996. McMurtry describes himself as a "Biblical Scientific Creationist Apologist" and is a regular guest on RTV. http://www.creationworldview.org/aboutus.asp

There are no details to be found anywhere about the "doctorate" of cult leader and proven false prophet "Dr" Jonathan David (who prophesied the ludicrous "Elijah prophecy" over Conder).

In fact, the majority of TV evangelists, some of whom appear on RTV, have honorary "doctorates":

John Hagee, Jesse Duplantis, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Frederick K.C. Price, Mike Murdock, Perry Stone, Jack Van Impe, Rod Parsley, Rodney Howard-Browne, Kenneth Copeland, Norvel Hayes, Kevin McNulty, Benny Hinn. Fred Price, TD Jakes, Randy White, Marilyn Hickey, Paul (David) Yonggi Cho..... the list is endless.

Does it matter? Yes actually it does. Those who hold worthless honorary doctorates in theology with no sound theological training are all too often the ones teaching false doctrines. In order to compensate for their lack of gifting and calling, these wolves in sheep's clothing attempt to validate their “ministries” with honorary doctorates which in no way, shape, or form are comparable to a real PhD. In other words, their fake gospel and their fake degrees go hand in hand.

What does this tell us? They love their titles to be seen before men - they seek worldly honour:

They do all their deeds to be seen by others.(Matthew 23:5-12)

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3)

Those who have graduated with an authentic PhD in Theology from an accredited institution have studied for several years, learning how to translate the scriptures from the original languages, biblical backgrounds, in-depth studies of each book of the Bible and the doctrinal errors of cults etc. I am not saying that an authentic qualification is a necessary requirement for someone to teach the Bible effectively. Many well-known pastors and teachers with no theological qualifications are called and gifted by God. Nevertheless, serious study of some form is required, whether at a reputable institution or privately, not for the sake of a title or a qualification, but to show oneself approved.

Paul's instruction to Timothy: Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. (2 Tim. 2:15) 

For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge..... (2 Peter 1:5)

UPDATE 16th June 2015

The Charity Commission is to appoint an Interim Manager to act in the administration of The Revelation Foundation. http://bewareofthewolves.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/revelation-tv-howard-conder-says.html

  1. Great article Treena. There really does need to be a higher standard for those who call themselves Dr.

    It's a bit like those lord and lady titles that you can buy for £20.

    Personally, I'm not fussed by academic achievements, but if you really want to use the title, earn it!
