Lee Man Hee embezzled funds and evaded taxes.
This is an outdated and false accusation that was acquitted after being proven as false by the Korean tax office. There are those who falsely accuse Shincheonji of tax evasion, but they have actual evidence (e.g. court rulings, paperwork) of their innocence regarding this issue. And we are taught about these legal victories and evidence ever since we enter the church.
There’s also a huge emphasis on being frugal and transparent about all church purchases. They made us count out every single item we bought for cleaning one day, because they want to know that we did not waste away the congregation’s donated money. So I am doubtful of this claim.
