Revelation TV Cleared by Charity Commission – NOT!!!

Goodness… what are they thinking?!

Howard, Gordon and Alan on air talking about how the CC have cleared them of all wrongdoing! They haven’t!!!

They published this statement on their website.

“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.”

They have seriously jumped the gun on this one. They also went on air talking in depth about the letter they had from the CC. It was pretty clear that the CC have not cleared them, as they have a) not said they have, this is clear from the show, although they have spun it well and b) the CC have appointed an interim manager.

They even acknowledged in the show that the CC haven’t actually said they have cleared them. They also acknowledge that just because the CC haven’t commented on the charities fundraising tactics etc, doesn’t mean that they have been given a clean bill of health. They just glossed over that though.

I’ve written this as a response to their questionable claims regarding being cleared.

Dear Howard/Gordon/Alan

I watched last nights show on the internet. I must admit you are good at the spin!

Do you not realise that the appointment of a manager is a serious thing?

You have in no way been cleared of wrongdoing! The CC would have actually said so if this were the case. Just because they haven’t made reference to the things they are investigating doesn’t mean you are cleared!!!

The CC don’t send an interim manager with no cause. They only do so for one of two reasons…

  • There is or has been misconduct or mismanagement in the administration of the charity; or
  • It is necessary or desirable to act to protect the charity’s property.

This shows the findings are not necessarily in your favour!!!

How could the CC clear you of wrongdoing when you have lied to viewers for years regarding 21st Century TV Ltd. People have donated based on lies and deception. The CC cannot sanction that and will at least advise that steps need to be taken to make things clear for viewers to know exactly what happens with 21st Century TV. I believe you have a donor currently trying to get his donations back because he donated based on untruths.

The other thing that you clearly don’t seem to grasp is that the appointment of an interim manager generally goes alongside the investigation. This doesn’t necessarily mean the CC have concluded anything, just that they feel further steps are required.

The way you talk of how it’s not worth going after me… you almost sound like you believe it!

You have threatened me with a solicitor before, why not now??? You are well known for your use of the courts.

Is it perhaps because you know that you lied about me?

Or maybe because you know what you have been up to and more importantly, I do too!

Howard, just come clean! It’s not over and there is no way that I’m going to be silenced by your false claims.

Perhaps I should go to the secular press? They would have a field day.

I wanted us to do this “in-house”, but you seem determined to spit on the truth.

What am I to do with you Howard? All I wanted was dialogue when I sent my original correspondence to the trustees. I was even willing to help you come clean in a way that you could even have saved face.

I reached out to you all at RTV, but you saw me as a threat instead of a friend.

Sadly, you’ve now made me and others a threat and we are not going away.

  1. Hi Jam, I hope the consequences are that God’s will be done and if it He will deal with any consequence for this. Consequences on others will be brought about by their own choice’s the consequences of not speaking out before God and giving a chance for People to see their sin and repent and for others not be told of things that have been hidden is unthinkable.

  2. Luxury yacht? it would have been bought with their own money though, so nothing to see there, is there?! So why bring it up? 😦

      The relevance is that it would have been paid for by the money ministries pay for airtime.

      Boats like that are very expensive and demonstrate that the Conders are not living an average lifestyle.

      The main point of this is that in the same way Howard denied ever owning Howie’s, a similar thing happened with the yatch. It was sold very quickly as viewers were not happy about it.

      I have no problem with the Conders making millions, but burrying the truth is another story.

  3. The point is that if they can afford to buy a luxury yacht and assist in opening a Bar(however involved they were), Then they should run their God Tv station from their own finances, rather than run a charity, remember we are not supposed to be loving this world, store up treasures in heaven, you cannot love the world or anything in the world. However, it seems some in rev tv have their heads and hearts on earthly things. Even some of the others at rev tv are directors of many, companies and assets well over a million, that is not a problem but why run a charity? fund it yourselves you have the finances.

      Thanks for your comment. There are many good reasons to start a charity and when the foundation was set up there were benefits such as gift aid etc.

      Legally it’s fine to set up a charity, but still have profit making company attached to it. The problem is the lies.

      It appears Howard and Leslies company 21st century tv have been topping up the foundation every month by whatever it needs.

      Every penny that viewers donate is an extra penny the Conders can keep for themselves.

      This isn’t the terrible part… the real problem is that they lied about it for years!

  4. The first time I ever heard Howard mention that they take money from the air time paid for by ministries and adverts was on the recent Time for Revleation programme. He folowed up by saying, we have to make a living. How many People who donate to REV TV can afford a luxury yacht or a club like howies. Regards how involved they were see The Living room 14th Feb 2014. Kirk and Melanie sat talking and said tonight its valentines night but not only that it did the opening of HOWARDS pub, then Kirk corrected himselfand said well not a pub its a music venue, it was a music venue with a cocktail bar. then they said we are going to celebrate after the show
    People have really been sacrificial to give ot REV TV and the building fund.
    Howies is still being denied and covered up even now if they really cared and saw viewers as Family would they not have made an honest statement and re OB Truck

    • Very true M. These assets cannot just be sold off quickly without some costs.

      We are still unsure as to what happened in the end with the bar, but you are right in saying these are playboy type purchases. More money than sense.

        Or is he still disqualified?

      I think you might need to read my initial article to understand the above comments. It’s very hard to belive that Howard and RTV are capable if what they have been doing, but it’s all true.

    • Anonymous… where have you got this information. They are far from cleared unless there has been any new development I’m unaware of.

      To be honest, even if they were “cleared” it doesn’t make what they have been doing right. Telling lies about finances and abusing people on air is not the way for a christian tv station to operate.

      Please let know if there is something new with a link.
