More On The Gospel For Asia Lawsuit
Warren Throckmorton has posted the entire lawsuit that has been filed against Gospel For Asia.
The suit alleges that Gospel For Asia has engaged in fraud and racketeering for the benefit of its directors.
“Soliciting charitable donations to benefit the poorest of the poor while covertly diverting the money to a multi million dollar personal empire is reprehensible; using a Christian organization as a front to attract and exploit the goodwill and generosity of devout Christians is a particularly vile scheme. But that is exactly what K.P. Yohannan and the organization he controls, Gospel For Asia, have been doing for years.”
This is also a class action suit…if it is successful GFA could be forced to reimburse donors before it collapses in a heap of avarice.
I would suggest that people read the facts presented in this document, facts that have been presented previously, but stand out when put in this format.
For example, between 2010 and 2013 GFA collected 4.2 million dollars for “Widows and Abandoned Children”.
Only 31,265.00 was actually spent on “widows” and nothing was spent on abandoned children.
That’s just a sample…read the entire suit to get a grip on the extent of the fraud alleged.
If these allegations are true there’s a special place in hell for people like this.
The lawsuit doesn’t address the injustices against the GFA Diaspora…put it all together it it is a sordid and wicked picture of a “Christian” organization.
For reasons I’m not sure of, the board members overseeing this (alleged) cartel are not named in this suit.
One of the constants on that board for years was the presence of Skip Heitzig.
More than a few of the rank and file Calvary Chapel pastors have wanted him to answer some of the questions regarding this debacle, as he is also one of the members of the Calvary Chapel Association “council”.
Instead, they have been stonewalled in the same manner as donors who have inquired have been.
They are finding out first hand what we’ve been saying for years…autonomy that leads to a complete lack of accountability serves the causes of sin and the aspirations of despots.
The only encouraging point to be made here is that some men are asking questions and seeking the truth in this matter.
We commend them.
Meanwhile, Heitzig has been named one of the speakers at the annual Costa Mesa pastors conference.
I’m not sure if he’s speaking before or after Bob Caldwell…
I’m hoping he’ll teach on how ethics are irrelevant if your church is large enough.
It’s the only subject he’s qualified to address.
In the meantime, while leaders refuse to lead, Gospel For Asia is still spending tens of thousands of dollars advertising their (allegedly) fraudulent programs and inducing more large hearted people to donate to what appears to be one hell of a family business.
The leaders of Christendom whose main calling is to protect the flock sit back in mute silence and watch the slaughter of the lambs while gathering speaking engagements.
I’m sure that at this conference they will rail against the evils of the world and those that hold different doctrines than they do.
They will name all they see as wicked and against Christ…after all the mirrors have been removed from the facility.
