YEMI BALOGUN THE CHAMELEON: REVELATION TV

For the upright will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it,
but the wicked will be cut off from the land, and the treacherous will be rooted out of it.
(Proverbs 2:21-22)


Sarah Acott's experience with Howard Conder is indeed a very sad one, though it is not untypical of those who have challenged Revelation TV and their unorthodox fund raising tactics. Sarah wrote a report to the Trustees of the Revelation Foundation in 2012 that challenged the Conders claim that they received no financial benefit from Revelation TV. Below is an excerpt from that report:

"The issue I wish to raise is that donors to the channel are being mislead in the way that funds are raised and presented on the Building the Foundation programme. The programme leads the viewer to believe that the finances reported on the pie charts are a representation of the entire channels financial operation. This is not true and could be accused of being fraudulent. I am only bringing this to you because I believe that this is something that you as the legal overseers should be aware of.
 
It became obvious to me when I watched one of the first Building the Foundation programmes years ago. The income stated leaves out one of the largest income streams into the channel – airtime and advertising sales. Having worked in the office during the set up of the channel I know about the 21st Century television account and believe that the money from this huge source of income is going straight into this account. From what I can gather from the charities commission website 21stCentury Television makes donations to the Revelation Foundation....." {1}

Sarah went public three years later, and in May 2015 she began her blog GodvsChristianity which is an exposé of RTV.{1} As a whistle blower Sarah has been derided and persecuted for publicly revealing the misleading fund raising tactics of RTV, and both she and her family have been dragged through the mud. When she decided to go public, myself, Rob Thomas and Nev Stephens fully supported her. Nev's U-turn was inexplicable, but myself and Rob have continued to condemn RTV's unethical practices and false teaching.{2} I believe that Sarah has genuinely attempted to make amends with Howard Conder et al, but so far there has been no resolution. I personally was rather sceptical about the meetings she arranged with various Trustees from the Revelation Foundation. Nevertheless, it was Sarah's decision to have these talks, and I whilst disagreed and felt that the meetings were not scriptural, I respected her decision.

Howard Conder has stated publicly and repeatedly that he will not forgive his detractors. (Matthew 6:14-15). In addition, there is absolutely no sign of the false teachers being removed from RTV's programming, in fact just the reverse is the case. In my view, Conder's behaviour indicates that he is, in all probability, a reprobate, in which case meetings and attempted reconciliation are a pointless exercise. The Trustees have been challenged many times, and still RTV continue to air false teachers, rip off their viewers and abuse their detractors. The scriptural procedure for a fellow Christian who has sinned against us personally is very clear. Firstly we are to approach the person privately. If that fails, then we should take two or three others along, and if that also fails, then finally we should tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. In other words, an unrepentant Christian should be should be treated as a social pariah! (Matthew 18:15-17 cf. 2 Thessalonians 3:6, 14). Sarah has gone through all of the above stages with no result, and in my view she is being played by the Trustees.

Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit. (Matthew 15:14).  

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. (Ephesians 5:11).

Sarah believed that she had a friend and ally in Yemi Balogun. In fact, Balogun was not only a personal friend of Sarah's, he was also a trusted family friend. Balogun privately agreed with Sarah's concerns and made a number of assertions that he would publicly expose Howard Conder/RTV. I wondered why he wanted to delay, and once again I was sceptical. Nevertheless I decided to wait and see what he would do. I was not at all surprised when he failed to come forward and nothing happened. It appears now that he was playing both sides all along! Although Sarah and others have been hurt by Balogun's deception and slander, it is Balogun himself who should be concerned. How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? (Hebrews 10:26-30).

A Little About Yemi Bolugun:

RTV Presenter Yemi Balogun aka Omoyemi Hakeem Balogun.
Yemi Balogun left Revelation TV in June 2011 to set up his own TV station. He became a Director of The Kingdom TV which was dissolved in 2014.

The Kingdom TV Ltd 19 Netley Drive, Walton-On-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, KT12 3QX  previously  REVELATION TV (AFRICA) LIMITED Dissolved 13th May 2014. {3}
Director: Omoyemi Hakeem Balogun appointed 13 January 2011.
Director:  Sylvia Sophia BANNERMAN-BALOGUN appointed 28 February 2011.
Secretary: Ian Gordon Pettie appointed 13th January 2011 - resigned 28th February 2011. In fact Pettie resigned the same day that Sylvia BANNERMAN-BALOGUN was appointed as Director and Secretary. {4}

I am not aware what exactly happened with Balogun's TV venture, other than that it was dissolved in 2014. During the time Balogun was absent from RTV, he communicated several things to Sarah Acott and others about the mis-deeds of RTV and the Conders. Much to our surprise, Balogun returned to RTV this year and is now denying that he ever condemned the Conders. In fact his denials are rather too loud! Having once escaped the worldly defilements of RTV, he has become entangled once again and allied himself with these apostates. (2 Peter 2:20).  Balogun's realliance with RTV and his forceful, but false denouncements and denials, are not only a betrayal of those who believed in his integrity, they are a betrayal of Christ Himself! (Matthew 26:69-75) He has failed a critical test! (2 Corinthians 13:5). The apostle Paul was willing to work with his own hands in order to support himself. It is shameful that many so called "pastors" are not willing to do the same. (Acts 18:3; 1 Corinthians 4:12; 1 Timothy 6:10). The "hireling" mentality is prevalent amongst those who make a show of godliness as a way to become wealthy, those who in reality care nothing for the sheep. (1 Timothy 6:5; John 10:13). My advice to Yemi Balogun: If you have not been successful in your so called "ministry", then earn your living honestly and do not seek your living from those who fleece the sheep for dishonest gain by the promotion of false teaching. The price will be ultimately very high for false teachers: For them the gloom of utter darkness (blackest hell) has been reserved. (2 Peter 2:17-18).

Two or Three Witnesses

The principle of two or three witnesses is extremely important if we are making accusations against a fellow Christian. The principle is repeated so many times in both the Old and New Testaments that I think we must take it seriously. (Matthew 18:16; cf. Numbers 35:30; Deuteronomy 17:6; 19:15; 2 Corinthians 13:1; 1 Timothy 5:19). I do believe Sarah's word alone is a truthful narrative of Balogun's betrayal, but in addition, there are further witnesses. This is in fact a double betrayal for Sarah, since it adds further pain to the original betrayal she suffered at the hands of RTV. 

Balogun gained the confidence of Sheila, Sarah and Chris. That is three witnesses who communicated with him directly about the conduct of Howard and Leslie Conder. (2 Corinthians 13:1). Sheila left a comment publicly on Sarah Acott's blog in 2015:

18th June 2015
Sheila: “Yemi balogun who once worked at REV TV is a witness to one lot of abuse/ridicule from Leslie which she said in his presence.I had finished with them totally. Never even thought of putting them on TV ever. “ {5}

Both Sarah Acott and Chris have given me permission to publish the emails I have received from them concerning Balogun. Below are some of the communications I have received from them both:

11th June 2015:
Sarah:"Yemi is popping down to the diner tomorrow afternoon. When I spoke to him before he said that he has been waiting for the right time to expose Howard, if now isn't it, I honestly don't know when would be.
Please pray that it will be a good meeting and that he will join us in this. He's a good man and a family friend. He's also very proud of what we have achieved, so it will be good to talk to him even if he only gives advice."

12th June 2015:
Sarah: "I'm meeting with Yemi later on today, so will give you all an update as soon as I can....."

13th June 2015:
Sarah:  "Not so great news re Yemi... he didn't make it! Unfortunately, he got held up, but will hopefully reschedule soon. He's still really positive on what we are doing so hopefully will see him next week."

15th December 2015
Sarah: "Yemi came to my diner last week. He’s one of the good ones. Just sad that Howard saw him as 'competition'”. {6}
Anonymous: "Now there is a very humble Man , Nice he came to see you. Yemi, he told me about Howards refusing to share a studio with him as it would be competition to him, I was astounded as I thought all Christian TV had the common goal of saving souls , I was not aware that competition came into it at all."
My reason for contacting Yemi was that on air Leslie was he usual condescending self towards me, insulting me and being sarcastic, calling me Mrs xxxxx, Yemi and Sylvia had no idea of the history of her and Howards abusve ways towards me and they joined in and laughed, when I enlightened him as to the whole story and of the disgusting things I had learned about the Conder children via their various social media sights , he apologised profoundly on behalf of himself and Sylvia, he also confided in me that he was about to leave and told me al about how howard had upset many people including himself and Sylvia and was always too proud to aplogise. I imagine you had some interesting conversation with him at your diner Sarah."
Sarah: Yes Yemi is a good and humble man. He will hopefully pop down to the diner and see Chris over the next few weeks too."  {6}

14th October 2016: 
Sarah: "Off the record... 
Yes... it's complicated and I'm confused about the situation to be honest. He's a family friend and it's not what I expected from him.
I texted Yemi about it and apparently they contacted him. He prayed about it and felt to go back. That decision is between him and God, but what concerns me is that he is endorsing the channel. He's by no means ignorant so his position is odd.
He might pop down to the diner over the next few weeks. I'm trying to be positive as the timing is interesting as my meeting with the two Alans were productive and this could be the start of a change from within. 
If I do get to see Yemi I do intend to be straight with him that I don't object to his return necessarily, but I do object to him endorsing them."
Chris: "Yes, I saw him appear on Time for Revelation last Wednesday (Oct 5th) and I was livid. Yemi is supposed to be coming to England for a few weeks. Sarah and I are going to try to get him over to her diner so that we can catch up!"
Chris: "Yes, he is being two-faced at the moment but Sarah and I will try to fix him :-)
He's just made a huge error of judgement."

14th December 2016:
Sarah: "Chris told Howard about Yemi giving him the information regarding 21st Century TV Ltd. Yemi has denounced our evidence as “gossip” and “innuendo”. He lied about various things and even named my father who has actively distanced himself from the situation.
I’m really saddened. As you know, I considered Yemi a friend and he knows that my mum has recently had a heart attack and yet told outright lies including that I have tried to blackmail him. I asked him to meet and explain himself to Chris, but he’s ignored me.
Yemi made it look like he has not given any information of significance to Chris or others, but I know he even told you some very serious things before he left RTV." 

22nd December 2016:
Chris: "Hi Treena,
There have been so many members of staff and volunteers who knew what was going on. They just left quietly. It strikes me that none of them have any Christian-integrity or even normal professional-integrity.
I'm not sure what to say about Yemi... On that programme, 10 days ago, he was grossly understating his involvement in the situation. He knows exactly what the evidence is and that it is not just "gossip and innuendo."
I think that he is having some-kind of mid-life crisis and feels desperately sorry that his own attempt at a Christian TV station failed. But, returning to Revelation TV has seriously compromised his integrity and he knows it.
Is Yemi just a weak man who cannot carry through his convictions ??  He obviously does know that things are not right with RTV and yet he has crawled back."

As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine, nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith. The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions.
Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, in accordance with the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted. (1 Timothy 1:3-11)

The Charity Commission's statutory inquiry into the Revelation Foundation:

"In March 2014 complaints were received from members of the public alleging the charity was being used for private advantage. A subsequent scrutiny of the charity’s accounts by the commission identified regulatory concerns which include potential significant loss of charitable funds, trustee benefits, conflicts of interest and connected party transactions. These concerns are primarily in relation to the production and broadcasting of television programmes from Spain as well as the trustees’ decisions to transfer significant charitable assets and funds from the UK to Spain." {7}

Hi Treena,

How has Rob "continued" to support the stance you are advocating when he has written just two articles in over six months on his blog, and NOTHING about Rev TV or Sarah Acott for well over a year??

He seems to have gone very quiet on most controversial issues these days for some strange reason which is a great shame. He used to be a prolific and inspirational writer, but something appears to have changed?

As for me, I have nothing against you and Sarah with the stance you are taking, although it seems to get a little more "flakier" as time goes by?

I like some of the programmes on Rev TV, that is why my change was "inexcusable" as you state? I know there is some stuff on RTV which we would prefer NOT to see, but at the same time there is also some good stuff which WE DO LIKE TO SEE!

"By ALL MEANS save some" said the Apostle Paul in 1 Cor 9:22 - therefore I think that RTV might qualify as a part of "all means"!

Show me some good evidence against RTV, Conder, Pettie et al and I will blog my support for you and Sarah as I used to. At present I do not promote RTV as some have accused me of doing - I just do not castigate a TV station anymore which I still watch from time to time.

Happy New year to you Treena, and all of your readers,
Maranatha Blessings,
Nev.

Treena Gisborn said...

Good to hear from you on this subject Nev. Actually I said "inexplicable" and not "inexcusable"... I do fail to understand your stance on this at all. You must realise that RTV are ECUMENICAL? Also their fundraising pie charts do not take account of the Conders substantial income from 21st Century TV.. and yet they say they make nothing from RTV? You must know what we are talking about surely? I fail to see how 1 Corinthians 9:22 applies? Paul became all things to all people in order to save some, but he never compromised with false teaching? It is not rocket science. God bless.

Neville Stephens said...

I guess I tend to pick and choose more these days Treena, and am not a devotee of any tv station, Christian denomination or Charity, or any Church either!

I go to some churches but refuse to become a member as I do not agree with their teachings, even though I often hear some lovely gems. I watch a little of RTV, God TV and very occasionally a few others, especially the Bible Prophecy End Times programmes, and those about the chosen Nation of Israel, but I would never dream of supporting them financially or in any other way!

But sinners do get "saved" by going to some of these churches, some of these so-called "revivals", some of these denominational meetings, and "yes" by even watching the likes of RTV.

They are all run and orchestrated by "sinners" just like you and me, but the Lord chooses to use us broken and wretched vessels to achieve His purposes. So in reality, who are we to argue against The Almighty?

This is what I mean "by ALL MEANS save some"! They are not OUR means, and probably NOT the means we would choose, but sometimes they are the means which the Lord uses, for HE often works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform!

However Treena, as I said above, show me some good EVIDENCE against RTV, Conder, Pettie et al and I will blog my support for you and Sarah as I used to. The Charities Commission do not seem to be getting anywhere, or any of the other enemies of RTV. But I certainly do not promote RTV as some have accused me of doing - I just do not castigate a TV station anymore which I still watch from time to time.

Happy New Year to you Treena, and all of your readers,
Maranatha Blessings,
Nev.

Treena Gisborn said...

The thing is Nev that God hates the mixture. The church of this apostate generation has lost its power and purity by allowing a mixture of pure and impure. This is one of Satan’s primary battle strategies.

"The little foxes spoil the vines." (Song of Solomon 2:15).
"A little leaven leavens the whole lump." (Galatians 5:9).
"Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few." (Matthew 7:13-14).

Where do we draw the line? The RC church teach "some truth", as do the Word Faith teachers, the JW's and the Mormons. What are their converts "saved" into? If people are "saved" by false cults, they will not know how to walk in the truth and they will not be discipled. (Matthew 28:19).
Why are we warned repeatedly to beware of false prophets? (Matthew 7:15; Matthew 24:11; Colossians 2:8 etc.)
God may "allow" certain things, but that does not mean that He approves of them. He has allowed them so that those who "love the truth" may be saved. (2 Thessalonians 2:10).

What is the purpose of having the gift of "the ability to distinguish between spirits" if it doesn't really matter after all? (1 Corinthians 12:10) Surely this is the reason that Rob Thomas, myself and others have been speaking out against false teachers? What would be the point of our ministries if it were not important to publicly identify the wolves and call them out?

We are to strive for soundness and we should not accept error:
"Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers." (1 Timothy 4:16).

The greed of the Conders and their acolytes is very plain to see. Why do the Conders insist that they make nothing out of RTV when they make a packet by selling air time to false teachers through 21st Century TV? If you can't see that this is dishonest Nev then I am very concerned about you. These people are pleading poverty on their fundraising programmes but it is a lie.

"Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold..." Proverbs 8:10)

In 2015 Rob Thomas wrote:
"However it might be dressed up, Howard and Lesley Conder have effectively been living off money they've gained from so-called "Christian ministries" who have themselves obtained that money from basically conning people into believing that they have been supporting the work of God with their contributions! Deception breeds deception. Corruption breeds corruption. With a joint income of £80k per annum, the Conders are rather handsomely rewarding themselves for putting profit before principle! The tainted money pouring into their company from a pack of wolves has been more important to them than maintaining Christian integrity and transmitting only the pure and unadulterated Gospel of Jesus Christ."

Leaving aside RTV's gross financial shenanigans for the moment, that is altogether another issue.

Many believe it to be unloving, uncharitable, narrow minded, and over righteous about much, when it comes to the issue of ecumenism. But, ecumenism is wickedness, pure and simple, it denies the power of the cross.
Many just cannot see the wood for the trees regarding ecumenism. Neville, may have enough discernment to "pick and choose" what he wants to watch on RTV, but many may not, and therefore get drawn in to the Roman Catholic Church, Word Faith Movement or any other heretical organisation that RTV may see fit to air/promote. Thus it will be a case of "blind leaders of the blind, and if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall in the ditch" Matt 15.14.

I haven't watched RTV for some 5 years, or whenever it was when Prasch and Mitchell took their stand. It bothered them (and rightly so!) that they shared the SAME platform as the likes of Osteen, Meyer, Hinn, DuPlantiss and company.

I assume that Neville now thinks they were wrong in their stand?

God bless.

Neville Stephens said...

No Colin, I do not think that Jacob and Bob were wrong to make their stand and they were also quickly followed by Alan Franklin, Paul Wilkinson, and Brian Gemmell who all cancelled appointments with RTV.

And I still get on well with all of these five friends who have all spoken at my meetings in Newport and the surrounding area. The stand, however, was against Jesse Duplantis who had a regular spot as the same time as Bob Mitchell's programme, but on a different day.

I am not sure that Osteen or Hinn have ever had regular spots on RTV, but maybe the former but now folded Genesis TV?? I stand to be corrected on this, however, as I am not certain.

I guess it does come down to discernment in the end, for I would never waste my time listening to False Prophets such as these guys and gals, and all of my blogs are totally against these deceivers which now abound around us in these perilous Last Days of The End times.

I still do expose all of these false prophets Treena and have done for nearly five years now on my blogs without stopping. Rob used to be very good at it, but these days seems to have gone very quiet, and his words you quote are nearly two years out of date!

You say that "God may "allow" certain things, but that does not mean that He approves of them. He has allowed them so that those who "love the truth" may be saved", and that is EXACTLY my point! The Lord does not approve of much that Conder does but He does still bless RTV to a certain extent (mysterious ways His wonders to perform again).

I do things wrong but Yeshua still blesses me. I think you will find that you also do things wrong Treena and Colin, but I am sure also that He continues to bless you.

The narrow gate of Matt 7 seems to be getting narrower in these last days, but there is NO chance that the teachings propagated by the RC Church, the Mormons, the JW's, and the Word of Faith Movement (to use your illustrations) working successfully in The Kingdom, for they preach ANOTHER Jesus and another gospel!

I do not think you can accuse The Conders, The Petties, Tim Vince, Yemi and a few others of preaching "another Jesus" unless they have seriously changed their views these past couple of years, for I do not watch RTV very often. They might be doing other "sinful" things like Colin, Treena, Rob, and me but I do not think that any of us stray from the truth of Jesus being the only Way and Truth to Eternal Life.

Maranatha Blessings,
Nev.

Treena Gisborn said...

Conder used to air Benny Hinn and also the Roman Catholics! I do not know about Joel Osteen, but it would not surprise me! He also continues to air Word Faith Teachers and Seventh Day Adventists and all sorts of rubbish! When Conder promotes Word Faith teachers HE IS promoting "another gospel". (2 Corinthians 11:4)
I do not claim to be without sin, far from it. (1 John 1:8). However, there is a critical difference between KNOWINGLY and DELIBERATELY airing false teachers for money, who, in all likelihood will lead people to hell.... AND DELIBERATELY disguising finances and falsifying the figures in order to deceive viewers into giving.
Conder and Pettie are con men and their acolytes are no better.
If you cannot see this then something is very wrong Nev. God bless.

Rob Thomas said...

Hi Treena!

May I respond briefly to comments that have been made here about myself?

I would like to make known that my stance over Howard Conder and RTV remains completely unchanged, and I continue to stand firmly alongside Sarah and yourself! Sad to say, the words I've written on the subject are most certainly not out of date, as absolutely nothing has changed and the Gospel continues to be gravely compromised - and all for the sake of filthy lucre! I don't feel a need to write repeatedly, saying the same things about RTV; the existing articles remain valid and are regularly accessed. Surely between us we've presented enough good evidence and testimony against Conder and the RTV empire? Turning a blind eye to the very real wrongs just because RTV broadcasts some soundness is playing completely into their unrighteous hands; as you so rightly say Treena, God hates the mixture and it is indeed one of our Enemy's primary battle strategies! Satan knows full well that just a drop of arsenic poisons the whole cup; just a pinch of leaven leavens the whole lump. If Conder can get it right when he chooses to, let us not forget that even a broken clock gives you the right time twice a day...

These last few months have been a particularly difficult and testing time for me, but while this has markedly reduced my output, I've not abandoned the fight for Truth. And sometimes it's not such a bad thing to take a step back to draw breath, bind one's wounds and take stock of things. Whatever I do, I want to be done in the Spirit and not in the flesh. We all have need to keep a very close check on yourselves as to how we are operating; we have weighty responsibilities.

In these very uncertain times, we can be sure of this: the great Falling Away will continue to accelerate in pace and to intensify. As the Lord emphasized in the Olivet Discourse, deception is the number one sign of the End Times, but in the midst of all this the Remnant can hold securely to His promise:

"When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)

With very best wishes for a Happy New Year,
In Him,
Rob.

I used to watch and contribute to Revelation Tv (not very often I may add), but I started to feel uneasy about the prosperity preachers they began to air. I was also confused about the message Howard and Lesley gave out about not taking an income.

I came accross your blog and Sarah's while researching RTV online.I am grateful to you and others for highlighting these things.

Treena Gisborn said...

Thank you Rob for clarifying your position and for sharing your thoughts. I pray that God will give you wisdom and bless you and your family in the coming year.

Thank you for your encouragement M. God bless.

I certainly agree with Neville when he says we "do things wrong" and so it WILL be until that Day when we are "made perfect in one" John 17.23. For "in the flesh dwelleth no good thing". It WON'T be because of RTV faithfully preaching the gospel that any shall be saved, it will ONLY be because "My sheep hear My voice" John 10.27, and, on this I am sure God has used RTV as a means.
We are but sinful creatures...period!
This is why we need to be saved from the wrath to come (not THE great tribulation!). Some have this stupid notion that we can be made perfect this side of eternity, but the Saviour saved His people from their sins committed before and AFTER they became true (election!?) believers.

But, what of the exhortation of Peter's in 2 Peter 3.18 "..grow in grace and KNOWLEDGE of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ"? Do the leadership of RTV show any evidence of this? I really do hope that Neville sincerely believes that the RCC does indeed preach "another Jesus" as he says?

RTV in one form or another has been going on for 16-17 years I believe, from memory, and we ought not forget the debacle over Doug Harris and Conder when they actively encouraged Christians to get "fellowship in their local RCC"! Around the same time (about 5 years ago) I remember watching a programme aired on RTV which was produced by their American sister channel the ecumenical CBN, about a Christian school. It was a half hour long production, and I became concerned when I could see a crucifix hanging on the wall in a class room! I looked up the name of this 'Christian' school on line, and their web page advertised it as a ROMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOL, I kid you not! I speak the truth in Christ.

The above demonstrates EXACTLY how wolves operate! In fact, I would say that Conder, Pettie and company are actually far worse than professing members of the RCC? No doubt many are sincerely deceived, there is yet hope for them, especially if we remember Luther, Calvin, Knox and co were saved out of it!

I like Rob Thomas's analogy of the broken clock! As he rightly says the "Gospel is compromised for the sake of filthy lucre".

God bless.

Treena Gisborn said...

I agree 100% Colin. Thank you once again for your valuable input. God bless

I guess the issue is that for years they said they had to air these dodgy prosperity preachers to pay for the running of the TV station. Now it turns out that this money was not going into paying those costs, but straight into the Conders pockets. That was dishonest.
