In this era of "fake news" we all need to be alert and on the lookout for a new breed of scam artists - the self appointed "fact checkers". This one has been operating in the shadows by their own account for over 40 years, and their targets are evangelical Christians and your local independent Churches. They are attempting to use the power of Big Government and the IRS to shut them down.

There is no mention of one of the biggest scams of all time - the cathylicks. You don't hear of the Vatican Bank scandals, the sodomification of altar boys, and their vast homer network that corrupts the entire planet. Where is the "religion of peace" and their 1,400 year wars on Christian Civilization? Where is the scripture calling out false religions?

Their latest targets are Chuch owned private jets.

Here is what they claim to be about.

Quote:
TRINITY FOUNDATION
Monitoring religious fraud for 30+ years.

Trinity Foundation began in 1972 as a religious, charitable and educational non-profit foundation for promoting the public interest in the State of Texas by producing Christ-centered communications projects.

An early skepticism about the way religious programming was bought and sold prompted Trinity to conduct a controversial research project on the audience demographics and ratings of religious broadcasting. This preceded the scandals that rocked the religious television industry in the 1980’s. In 1987 after supplying testimony to congressional hearings about the religious TV industry, the foundation began full-time monitoring of religious programming and reporting abuses of the public trust. By the 1990s Trinity had become the leading “watchdog” of religious media, conducting investigations and providing information used to expose fraud and abuses committed in the name of God.

The foundation regularly provides assistance to print and electronic journalists investigating suspected fraud or other abuses of the public trust by members of the religious media. The foundation has worked with news organizations such as ABC News Prime Time Live, CBS News 60 Minutes, NBC News Dateline, CNN Special Reports, ABC News 20/20, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (now over 35 1/2 million views),

. . .

The foundation has regularly provided testimony and investigative reports to various state and federal agencies.

From 2005 through 2011, the foundation worked closely with the US Senate Finance Committee on their investigation of religious non-profit organization abuses. The committee sent letters to six ministries in November 2007 seeking to determine if they were abusing their non-profit tax status. In a letter to the Senate committee, Trinity Foundation President Ole Anthony told the committee, “In some cases it is difficult if not impossible to tell the not-for-profit from the individual’s personal piggy-bank or from the for-profit entity.”

Others have agreed religious fraud is a growing problem. Deborah Bortner, former president of the North American Securities Administrators Association, told the committee, I’ve been a securities regulator for 20 years, and I’ve seen more money stolen in the name of God than in any other way.” The usual government oversight procedures have not been able to keep up. In a 2005 letter to Senator Grassley, IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson admitted the IRS has not been able to properly confront the problem.

Unfortunately for the public, many of the huge organizations Trinity investigates are legally disguised as churches—literally disguised, as in invisible funds, no accountability whatsoever. Churches (and $100M plus/year televangelist ministries) do not have to file the IRS 990 showing top salaries and where the money goes. To top things off, in 2009, the IRS suspended all investigations of churches including the most egregious offenders—congressional legislation has not kept up with IRS organizational realities. And even as the problem has increased, news media across the country have reduced their investigative budgets, allowing most of these abuses to continue unreported.

Calculating the Cost of Ministry-Owned Aircraft Flights
July 16, 2021 Barry Bowen

Let’s take a look at one of the most expensive days so far in 2021 for church, ministry and Christian university aircraft trips. We tracked eight aircraft on March 19, 2021. It is possible that more than $100,000 could have been saved by flying commercial rather than using privately-owned aircraft.

List of aircraft owners:

A. Mt Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries
B. Mighty Horn Ministries
C. Liberty University
D. Liberty University
E. Faith Life Church.
F. Assemblies of God Financial Services Group
G. Philadelphia Church of God
H. Harvest International Ministries

Daniel Robertson Jr. pastors Mt Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries in Richmond, Virginia. The church owns a Cessna 650 jet which is also known as a Citation III.

On March 19th, the jet made a 20 minute flight from Richmond to Manassas, Virginia. According to Aircraft Cost Calculator, the Cessna 650 has an estimated hourly operating cost of approximately $2,970. Estimated cost of trip: $1,000.

This is all a bit beyond me but I have no trouble distinguishing legitimate Church ownership of jet aircraft for use in His service from blowhards cruising around at everyone else's expense slurping down champagne (which was never distinguished by Jesus as a type of wine and anyway is not very much like wine from The Levant) and goodness only knows what else

Busybodies however I'd expect to lack that discrimination.
II Thessalonians 3:11-13 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

This is truly alarming. We are in the process of purchasing the largest jet in the entire Christian faith, an Airbus A380. Will we have to fill out 10 pounds of forms just the say this Airbus will be used by Pastor Zeke to save souls around the world?

Personally, I have had suspicions about some of the aircraft used by preacher. Particularly I'm suspicious of the one Creflo Dollar owns. But even these should not be allowed to interfere with the flights of our Pastor Zeke.


Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

Amen, dear Brother Mayor Hold! I'm afraid that there are some unscrupulous preachers who will, very willingly, use the Gospel of the , in attempts to solicit money from unsuspecting persons who think they are helping the ministry. We can so thankful that we have no such worries here at . The Almighty has blessed people here, with an anointed, ever-sincere man of the Faith, by giving us our dearly-beloved .

Now, of course, there are some who are not as blessed as we are. Goodness, I can recall when one of those other preachers was telling the people that he needed a very expensive, private jet, so that he would not have to ride in a "tube of demons" (with other passengers).

Quote:
A Texas-based televangelist is facing scrutiny following a recent TV interview in which he defended his use of three private jets and referred to the public as “a bunch of demons” that he needed to avoid while preparing his sermons.
[Reporter Lisa] Guerrero then asks Copeland about a past statement attributed to him, in which he allegedly said he doesn’t use commercial airlines because he doesn’t “want to get into a tube with a bunch of demons.”

Oh, what a blessed day it shall be when our Pastor's new Airbus has arrived! I so hope that the burdensome paperwork will not be too much of a bother; and, we know that nothing shall stand in the way of the , for .
