Rev David McClay – another Romish compromiser made Church of Ireland bishop

Malachi 2:7-8: “For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts. But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.”

There has been a high turnover of bishops in the Church of Ireland for one reason or another of late, all of them enthusiastic compromisers with Rome.

Bishop Ken (No) Good retired as Bishop of Derry and Raphoe having long been the best bud of Romanist Bishop of Derry Donal McKeown. He was replaced by Rev Andrew Forster, one of the most senior clergymen in the Diocese of Armagh at the time when it failed to take any action against one of its ministers, Rev Andrew Rawding, for marching in three different sodomite ‘Pride’ parades.

Bishop Alan Abernethy retired as Bishop of Connor (due to ill health, sadly) who is a member of the Central Committee of the obviously ecumenical World Council of Churches and chair of the Board of the ungodly St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast. No appointment has yet been made to replace him.

Archbishop Richard Clarke, a man so given over to betrayal of the gospel by mingling with pagan Romanism that he has rightly earned the title of Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke, has announced his impending retirement. As with Bishop Alan Abernethy, no replacement has yet been named.

And Bishop Harold Miller, described at his retirement by Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke as an “unswerving ecumenist” has called it a day as Bishop of Down and Dromore.

It is his replacement who is the subject of this article though – Rev David McClay (pictured, top), rector of the charismatic fellowship in east Belfast, Willowfield Parish Church.

Like his predecessor Bishop Harold Miller, he has rather creatively managed to carve out a reputation for himself as an ‘evangelical’, a term much abused these days.

It appears to be applied to churchmen in ecumenical denominations who are not total heretics in every respect.

Like Bishop Harold Miller, soon to be Bishop David McClay (he currently occupies the senior role of Archdeacon), he is opposed to murdering babies (also known euphemistically as abortion) and sodomite marriage.

However, that most certainly does not make one an evangelical.

We are given an idea of what makes a good evangelist by the Apostle Paul, writing under the inspiration of God in 2 Timothy 4:2-5, which says: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”

An evangelist is to preach the word regardless of the prevailing culture around them and are to rebuke and exhort, two words which are greeted with howls of “judge not” by the modern easy-believist, charismatic.

But churches like Willowfield Parish Church are exactly the type of places where those with itching ears choose to attend, with its heady mix of exclusively positive, affirming messages, dimmed lights, cups of coffee and ‘Christian’ rock music.

Rev David McClay is the organiser of the ecumenical New Wine conference, held in Sligo every year.

Each year Romanists are part of the line-up offering spiritual guidance to those in attendance.

This year one of the people brought in and recommended as being an example to be followed by those in attendance was Paddy Monaghan of the Evangelical Catholic Initiative, a man who is also a self-professed member of the Legion of Mary.

That should cause any even semi-discerning Christian tremendous concern.

We previously highlighted this situation in December last year and this is what we wrote in relation to Paddy Monaghan and his membership of a Mary exalting organisation:

“In an article entitled ‘Adventures in Reconciliation’ (a true ecumenical watchword) on the ‘Catholic Ireland’ website, Paddy Monaghan shares some of his life story.

“Speaking of his university days, he says: “I joined a Catholic lay organisation called the Legion of Mary, whose members engaged in various forms of charitable work.”

“So what is the Legion of Mary, you may ask? Here’s what Wikipedia says: ‘Membership is open to those who belong to the Catholic Church and believe in its teaching. Its stated mission is for active members to serve God under the banner of Mary by the corporal and spiritual works of Mercy, as mentioned in Chapter 33 of the Legion of Mary Handbook. The main apostolate of the Legion is activities directed towards Catholics and non-Catholics encouraging them in their faith or inviting them to become Catholic. This is usually done by encouraging them in prayer, attending Mass and learning more about the Catholic faith’.”

“So Paddy Monaghan believes in the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, whose teaching is totally contradictory to the teaching of Protestantism.”

This is crystal clear, Rome denies the precious message of the gospel and instead teaches a false system of salvation by sacramental merit.

Despite this, Rev David McClay was more than happy to have this man along to the conference he organises.

Indeed, he has had Paddy Monaghan along in each of the past two years.

At the 2018 edition of New Wine, there was two further Romanists speaking to the poor souls in attendance.

They were a Fodhla McGrane, who is linked with Clonard Monastery in west Belfast and Romanist Bishop of Elphin, Bishop Kevin Doran.

Rev David McClay is a persistent mingler with Romanism and there is absolutely nothing to suggest the Diocese of Down and Dromore of the Church of Ireland will be any better under his stewardship than it was under Bishop Harold Miller (pictured, below).

We would challenge Rev David McClay, even on the night he is instituted as a bishop, or at any other point, to publicly state that he is steadfastly opposed to the lies of the pagan Roman Catholic Church and will be having absolutely no fellowship with Rome.

We challenge Rev David McClay to stand up and loudly proclaim he will make no peace with Rome until Rome makes peace with God.

Let these words of Jude v 3 be ringing in his ears and proceeding from his lips: “ye should earnestly contend for the faith”.

Every mainstream Protestant church in Ulster offers support to Mary worshipping group

Hebrews 4:14-16: “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

A dreadfully sad event took place in Ulster late last month as a large-scale ecumenical convention took place in our little land, blessed so gloriously in times past by God.

The 38th annual ecumenical meeting of the Focolare Movement took place in Belfast, Larne and other venues across Northern Ireland from 21 to 25 October.

The Focolare Movement is a grouping we have previously mentioned on ‘Protestant Revival’.

We did so in April last year when highlighting the blasphemous Ballycastle Prayer Partnership which operates out of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church, on the north coast of Northern Ireland.

At that time we highlighted how Ballycastle Presbyterian Church had, in 2014, played host to a Service of Prayer for Christian Unity as part of the Focolare Movement’s Mariapolis.

This is how we described it at that time: “The Focolare Movement is a Roman Catholic movement whose chief goals are ‘to cooperate in the consolidation of unity in the Christian world, with individuals and groups, movements and associations; to contribute to full communion with Christians of different churches; and to work towards universal brother / sisterhood of all peoples, regardless of religious beliefs’.

“Pope Francis, speaking in relation to the grouping, has said: “The Work of Mary, that everyone knows as the Focolare Movement…”

“It is another method by which the Roman Catholic Church worships Mary and the Focolare Movement’s Mariapolis is a medium by which this is carried out. Mariapolis means “city of Mary” and wherever the event is held, that place becomes a “city of Mary”.

“Therefore, by celebrating this God defying festival, Ballycastle Presbyterian Church made itself part of the “city of Mary”. What utter blasphemy!”

So now, in late October 2019, we had this same Mary worshipping organisation running an ecumenical conference which was cheered on by EVERY major church in Northern Ireland.

Obviously, the Romanists were supporting it as they are ardent practitioners of Mariolatry.

So, too, was the Church of Ireland as the Most Ecumenical Archbishop Richard Clarke (pictured, above) “paid tribute to this important type of dialogue” with Rome, while his comments were “endorsed by the Rev Brian Anderson, President of the Irish Council of Churches, the Rev Sam McGuffin (pictured, top), President of the Methodist Church in Ireland, and the Very Rev Ivan Patterson, present at the meeting on behalf of the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland”.

So there you have it, this article we have quoted from the Church of Ireland Diocese of Connor confirms that the Church of Ireland, Methodist Church and Presbyterian Church have given their endorsement of ecumenical fellowshipping with a group which exists to exalt Mary.

The Focolare Movement organised ecumenical conference featured 30 bishops from 18 different churches in 14 countries and, during their stay here, “the bishops visited Fitzroy Presbyterian Church, Belfast; the Methodist Skainos Centre at the East Belfast Mission; the Corrymeela Community and toured Belfast city.”

Fitzroy Presbyterian Church is the clerical domain of ardent ecumenist Rev Steve Stockman, co-organiser, along with a Jesuit priest, of the ungodly Four Corners Festival in Belfast each year, and it is no surprise to see him hosting such an event.

The Corrymeela Community is the home of ecumenism in Northern Ireland and is an objectionable organisation, specifically set up to destroy doctrinal difference between traditionally Protestant churches and the false religion of Romanism.

And the Methodist Skainos Centre at the East Belfast Mission is also interesting.

The East Belfast Mission’s Chief Executive, Andrew Irvine (pictured, below) was the speaker at an ecumenical Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service in a Romanist chapel in Lurgan in County Armagh in January.

And the East Belfast Mission’s Skainos Centre was the venue a month later for the visit of a Jesuit priest, a ‘Father’ Gregory Boyle, during the aforementioned Four Corners Festival.

The report on the Diocese of Connor website continues and says: “On the evening of 24 October, the bishops participated at an uplifting Choral Evensong in St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast. Immediately afterwards they walked together to the neighbouring Roman Catholic Church of St Patrick, Donegall Street. There, during a moving ecumenical service, a solemn commitment in the light of Jesus’ New Commandment, to love one another’s church and consider each other’s crosses as their own, so that all may be one.”

They really were taking in the tour of the most notorious and noxious religious venues to God, adding in St Anne’s Cathedral, second only to Corrymeela for its wretched rejection of God’s Word in the ecumenical deceit, and then paid a visit to a Romanist chapel for a “moving ecumenical service”.

Ludicrously and, indeed, wilfully changing the Bible to suit their ungodly ends, the report states that these bishops made “a solemn commitment in the light of Jesus’ New Commandment, to love one another’s church”.

Sorry, but where was that in what Jesus said?

These clerical deceivers are clearly distorting and abusing Matthew 22:39, which says: “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”

Where does Jesus say to love other people’s churches? Where does He say that we are to love a church which rejects His Word? This is deliberate twisting of the Bible.

Indeed, it is more than twisting, it is downright falsehood.

But upon such lies the ecumenical movement has always been built, for God is truth and their schemes are not built on God.

Speaking of the Holy Spirit, Jesus said in John 16:13: “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”

God the Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth and it is clear those behind and supporting such initiatives are not being led by the Holy Spirit, but rather are teaching for doctrines things which are at variance with God’s Word.

1 Timothy 4:1-2 warns of this. It says: “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron”.

These religious leaders have departed from the faith and are speaking their lies in hypocrisy and feel not the slightest hint of guilt about it, as their consciences are seared.

They are giving themselves over to the blasphemies of the Roman Catholic Church and encouraging unity with Rome.

One of the chief blasphemies of Rome is its teaching that we ought to pray to Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus, and this unbiblical exaltation of a saved, yet sinful woman, is a key foundational principal of the Focolare Movement which organised this ecumenical shindig.

There is NO Biblical justification for praying to any other than God.

Indeed, in one of the great prayer meetings of the book of Acts, Mary is recorded as being in attendance. Did any of the 120 or so other attendees address their prayers to Mary? Of course not.

Mary was part of the group addressing their prayers and petitions to God, whom Mary herself called “my Saviour”.

Acts 1:13-14 says: “And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.”

They continued in “one accord”, there was no disharmony, nobody was praying at crossed purposes to different people.

What a blasphemy it is and what a disgrace it is to fellowship with and endorse the ecumenical dialogue being carried out by the Focolare Movement.

Yet this is what Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke, head of the Church of Ireland, has done.

Yet this is what Rev Sam McGuffin (perhaps Rev Sam McBluffin would be better, as he appears to only he purporting to be a minister of the gospel by endorsing such falsehood), head of the Methodist Church in Ireland, has done.

Yet this is what Rev William Henry, head of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, has allowed to be done in his name by one of his denomination’s ministers, Very Rev Ivan Patterson.

Dear reader who may still be caught up in these mainstream churches in Ulster, don’t you see that these men are not putting the service of God first? Rather they are prioritising ecumenical compromise and fellowship with those who blaspheme God and His Word over and above the almighty God of heaven.

Let us be that “peculiar people” as Peter, under the inspiration of God, described it, let us be separated unto Christ.

We are instructed to “go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach” (Hebrews 13:13).

There is no true unity or peace in refusing to separate from churches which have overthrown the Word of God.

Those who deny God and engage in ecumenical sell-out of their glorious Protestant heritage are the schismatics, for they are the ones who are causing the division by dividing themselves from Christ.

Let us then cleave to God rather than to institutions which may well mean much to us, and it is understandable that they may well do.

But let us be so determined to be separated unto Christ that nothing will stop us from cleaving to him.

Paul said in Romans 8:38-39: “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Look at the lengths and the depths of Christ’s love for the believer, do we not owe it to Christ to have a determination to, as much as in us lies, be similarly devoted to Him?

Let us even choose faithfulness to God over familiarity with and fondness to our church, should that be a denomination which has deserted Him and done despite to His cause.

2 Corinthians 6:17: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

Pope exalted by Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson at 24-7 Prayer’s Belfast conference

It is no secret that pagan Romanism and the charismatic 24-7 Prayer movement go hand in hand, yet so many so-called Protestant Christians seem unable or unwilling to see these disgraceful links.

But they were proudly on show for all to see once again at the weekend just gone as the words of the Pope were plastered at the front of their worldwide conference, held in Belfast.

A somewhat sadly credulous attendee posted a message on his Twitter account expressing his tremendous delight at being at the conference.

To go along with his words, he posted a picture of none other than Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, top), one of the lead pastors of the Rome embracing Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area of County Armagh and leader of 24-7 Prayer in Ireland, up on the stage with a quote projected on to the screen behind him as he spoke.

That quote, of course, was from “that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God”, the Pope.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson can be seen standing in front of that quote in the picture below.

Let us not forget the blasphemous titles the Pope takes upon himself, in which he blasphemes all three Persons of the Godhead.

Firstly, he calls himself the ‘Holy Father’, despite a clear Biblical prohibition, directly from Jesus, on sinful man taking such titles upon himself.

Matthew 23:9 says: “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”

This is a clear blasphemy against God the Father.

Secondly, he calls himself the ‘Pontiff’ or bridge between God and man. This is a position which belongs solely to Christ.

1 Timothy 2:5 says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

This is a clear blasphemy against God the Son.

Thirdly, he calls himself the ‘Vicar of Christ on earth’. This is a position which belongs solely to the Holy Spirit.

John 14:16-18, 26 says: “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

This is a clear blasphemy against God the Holy Spirit.

The Pope is a rotten old blasphemer against almighty God, yet Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is happy to promote this old deceiver to all and sundry.

Let us, too, never forget the blasphemous teachings of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church which he heads up.

Rome teaches of a fictional holding cell between heaven and hell they call purgatory, a false notion with absolutely no Scriptural warrant. One need only read the story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 to see the immediacy of our souls going to heaven or hell when we die.

Rome teaches of prayer being offered up to Mary and to long dead so-called ‘saints’, despite there being not one incident in Scripture when legitimate prayers are offered to any but God.

Rome teaches the blasphemous Mass, in which they offer up Christ as a sacrifice repeatedly each and every day in Romanist chapels across the world, despite the Scriptures teaching that His sacrifice was once for all.

Hebrews 7:22, 24, 27: “By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament. But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

Worst of all, Rome pronounces its curse, or anathema, on any who believe the Biblical doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.

It is so clearly taught in Scripture that salvation is of God, not of ourselves. With Rome, salvation is all doing; with Christ, salvation is all done.

Ephesians 2:8-9 says: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Titus 3:5-7 says: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

These are simple Scriptural truths, yet Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson and everyone else associated with that 24-7 Prayer conference are riding roughshod over the gospel message in their pathetic Popish pandering.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has considerable form when it comes to compromise with Rome.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson spoke in a Romanist chapel in Belfast in February last year as part of the ecumenical Four Corners festival. He is pictured below speaking in that hub of Romanist deceit.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson addressed a meeting of the ecumenical Ballymena Church Members Forum and endorsed the ecumenical charismaniac Healing the Land festival last year.

Most ignominiously of all, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson glorified the evil founder of the sinister Romanist order of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola at his Emmanuel Church in October last year.

He continues to promote Rome to any who are foolish and deluded enough to listen to him and what a fearful condemnation he is building up for himself in eternity.

Proverbs 29:1: “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”

On so many occasions the shameful compromise of Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has been set before his face, but again and again he has hardened his neck.

Will Alain Emerson not repent of his dreadful compromise with Rome, leading the souls of so many astray?

He is, sadly, not on his lonesome in this regard of leading people astray under the pretence that he is a man sent by God.

ABBA prayer dance supporting Pete Greig (pictured, above), who is trying to boost the Roman Catholic Church in Austria and, until last weekend, the overall leader of 24-7 Prayer (replaced by another character all true Christians should be wary of, Mike Andrea), was also a speaker at that conference.

And where was the conference held? May Street Presbyterian Church in Belfast, now ran by Carnmoney Presbyterian Church offshoot Carnmoney Central.

It will come as no shock to any readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ that such a venue hosted such an event.

Carnmoney Presbyterian Church is ran by a minister who is openly opposed to the Bible’s view on sodomy, the crowd-surfer Rev John Dickinson, who endorsed the ‘Christian’ LGBT campaigner Vicky Beeching and openly condemned the Presbyterian Church’s soft efforts to tackle sodomy within the denomination at its General Assembly.

Rev John Dickinson’s son, David Dickinson (pictured, below), is at the helm of Carnmoney Central and was more than happy to fellowship with a Papist priest when his charismaniac collective took over May Street at the start of the year.

Furthermore, Carnmoney Central, or May Street Presbyterian Church, has also played host to the Pope blessed ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer event in each of the past two years.

The home of the Presbyterian Church, Assembly Buildings, located just a matter of yards from May Street Presbyterian Church, also hosted some of the events of the four day conference.

Why does the Presbyterian Church allow this event to be held on its property? It truly is shameful that promotion of Popery is taking place in any of its buildings, but surely much more grievous for it to be done in their headquarters.

Ezekiel 5:11 warns of the dreadful judgment which comes from God when buildings which were at one time used to glorify God are changed into something that does the opposite.

It says: “Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord God; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.”

These buildings are polluted with Popery and religious compromise.

Let any reading this have no part of it, have nothing to do with it, and better still, speak out against it and share this article widely so as many as possible can be warned.

We are called to speak out against error and undoubtedly 24-7 Prayer is replete with error.

And let us never be afraid to take a stand for Christ and speak out against that which claims to be of Him but is so clearly not.

Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

21 October 2019 – a day of mourning in Ulster as abortion and sodomite marriage is foisted upon us

Psalm 139:13-16: “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”

Romans 1:24-27: “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

It is with unspeakable sorrow and grief of heart that we write this post.

In Northern Ireland, a land so gloriously blessed by God in times past, it is now legal to murder unborn infants, ripping them forcibly from the womb of their mother who has decided she simply doesn’t want them.

In Northern Ireland, a land so gloriously blessed by God in times past, it is now legal for two sodomites, whose relationship is deemed an “abomination” by God, to marry one another.

What a dreadful, sad set of circumstances we find ourselves in in this country, which has stood apart for so many years from these two grave wickednesses which have consumed so much of the so-called ‘developed world’.

This wickedness has been forced upon us by evil men and women in the corridors of power at Westminster, led by the likes of Labour MPs Stella Creasy (or Stella Greasy!) and Conor McGinn, who introduced these motions which have now become law.

The utter overthrowing of God’s Law in our land can be seen in these dreadfully sad new laws of men and women.

A last minute effort by the DUP and some others, notably some Ulster Unionists, including, to give him his dues, Maghaberry Elim deacon Robbie Butler, whom we have previously and justly criticised for his Popish compromise, and the TUV’s Jim Allister, to block abortion legislation fell by the wayside.

Sinn Fein refused to turn up to the Stormont sitting brought about by the parties and individuals named above, though it can hardly be a surprise they made no effort to block the murder of the unborn when they to this day act as principal cheerleaders for the sectarian murder campaign of the IRA. Many of their most senior members are convicted terrorists.

Also absent were the quasi-Communist People Before Profit, the Green Party, who are pro-abortion and the ecumenical party known as the Alliance Party.

Many of their senior members, including East Antrim MLA Stewart Dickson and party leader, Naomi Long, claim to be Christian yet are happy to see abortion and sodomite marriage legislation come into being in Northern Ireland, or at least didn’t bother to turn up at Stormont to try to stop it.

Indeed, the Irish News reported earlier this week that Naomi Long had “appeared to offer her support for a 24-week limit for abortions in line with Britain”.

She praised one of her party’s councillors, open sodomite Eoin Tennyson, after he stated his support for abortion up to 24 weeks.The Irish News stated she “could not be contacted for further comment” when they made efforts to reach her, which is bizarre, given she seems to live on Twitter.

As it was, they didn’t necessarily need to turn up for abortion legislation to have been blocked, but DUP efforts were stymied by incumbent Speaker, and elected DUP MLA, Robin Newton, who refused to allow business to proceed to discussing a Bill introduced by the DUP to block abortion.

This, he stated, was because a new Speaker needed to be elected on a cross-community basis, rejecting numerous efforts by DUP leader Arlene Foster and others to get the Bill through.

She and her party said they had legal advice from the Attorney General saying they could suspend Assembly rules to get the legislation through, but Robin Newton rejected this and at that point the efforts to block baby murder were doomed to fail.

Atheist political commentator Alex Kane praised Newton for sticking to his guns despite the pressure applied to him, but Robin Newton (pictured, above) is worthy only of condemnation for not using any legal means in his remit to block the murder of unborn children.

How sad a DUP MLA put the final nail in the coffin, as it were, of any efforts to prevent the unrestricted destruction of children up to 28 weeks in the womb.

A glaring omission, of course, can be seen in all this as not one voice seemed to be raised against the introduction of sodomite marriage.

Perhaps the DUP didn’t make any efforts at the Assembly as they, probably correctly, knew there was no chance of getting the necessary support to block it, but political pragmatism is no substitute for obedience to God and His Word.

The whole sorry mess does not reflect well on anyone involved and it is yet further sad evidence of the general departure from God in our land.

While we rightly bemoan the sinful laws being imposed upon us and the sinful views espoused by so many in our land, all we as Christians must reflect on ourselves in this matter.

Have we done our utmost to share the gospel to make the lost wise unto salvation?

Have we spoken a word for the Lord with those we come into contact with or carried out outreach to try to see people coming to saving faith in Christ?

Have we, as Christians, grown cold or slothful when the fields around us are white unto harvest?

How can we expect the lost to necessarily hold to our Biblical views?

Let us even see this as a catalyst to draw closer to God and strive to live a more Christ-like life and be more fervent in our evangelism and our outreach.

Let us repent of our sins and earnestly seek God’s face that he would revive our land and do a mighty work in Ulster to once again make it a bastion of Biblical Christianity.

2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Crown Jesus Ministries’ Mitch brings Romanism into his church

Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

The great ecumenical lie and deceit continues to be a blight on the religious landscape of Ulster as so many church leaders refuse to be separated from falsehood.

Indeed, more than refusing to be separated from falsehood, they enthusiastically support associating with it and encourage others to do so too.

And that is exactly what is happening at the allegedly evangelical Crown Jesus Ministries in Belfast.

Led by the self-proclaimed evangelist, known only by the matey moniker of Mitch, Crown Jesus Ministries is very much an example of a common or garden variety shallow charismatic fellowship, where posting inspirational quotes online and raising your hands in the air to a ‘Christian’ rock track are the acid tests of godliness.

Don’t worry about whether your practices tally up with Scripture, that is dreadfully old-fashioned and, gasp, judgmental.

Concerns over following the Bible safely discarded (for now, Ecclesiastes 8:11-13), Mitch of Crown Jesus Ministries is proudly trumpeting an event his church will be hosting this Monday afternoon, from 2-4pm.

He will be bringing in to his church, and recommending him as someone admirable and worthy of emulation, a man called Ron Huntley (pictured, below) of Divine Renovation Ministry.

Probably one of your first questions when you hear these names is, what is Divine Renovation Ministry?

Well, this is how they describe themselves on their own website.

They say: “Divine Renovation was birthed out of a real experience of renewal. Fr. James Mallon along with the team at Saint Benedict Parish in Halifax, Canada transformed their parish into a vibrant community of missionary disciples.”

And how do they do this?

“We believe that there are three keys to parish renewal: the primacy of evangelization, the best of leadership principles, and the power of the Holy Spirit held together by the celebration of the Eucharist.”

So it is a Romanist movement aimed at freshening up the age profile of the Roman Catholic Church.

And one of the keys, as they see it, is to see the “power of the Holy Spirit held together by the celebration of the Eucharist”.

The Roman Catholic Eucharist, or the Mass, is a blasphemy.

Rome claims, each time they hold the Mass, they are sacrificing Christ again and again and again and that the bread and wine literally becomes the body and blood of Christ.

Leaving aside what it makes us if we eat the body and blood of another, this is simply a perversion of what the Scripture teaches.

We are told in no uncertain terms that Christ’s sacrifice was once for sin for ever. There is no repeat, no continuation, it has been done.

Hebrews 10:10-14: “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.”

There you go – we are “sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all”, Christ “offered one sacrifice for sins for ever” and “by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified”.

This is crystal clear stuff.

Where is Christ now? He is “sat down on the right hand of God”.

He is not being repeatedly or continuously offered as a sacrifice for sin by some Romish priest.

That priesthood was abolished, even as the text above states when it says “every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins”.

What a glorious passage this is and what a comprehensive debunking of the lies and deceits of Rome surrounding their perverted Eucharist.

Paul, as the author of Hebrews, was crystal clear on this.

So, too, most inconveniently for the Romanists, was Peter, who they falsely claim was their first Pope, a blasphemous position that Peter would have despised and which any true believer ought to hate as well.

1 Peter 3:18 says: “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit”.

Yet this blasphemy is a central tenet of the work being carried out by Divine Renovation Ministry, who supposed evangelical Mitch of Crown Jesus Ministries is trumpeting as a great and encouraging example to follow.

He ought to be ashamed of himself.

Ron Huntley is one of the leading figures in this Romanist deceit, and he is also a leading proponent of the leaven-filled Alpha Course. The very fact Rome embraces the Alpha Course really tells you all you need to know about it.

In promoting the appearance of Ron Huntley at Crown Jesus Ministries, Mitch said this on his Twitter page (also pictured, below): “We are thrilled to have Ron Huntley from Divine Renovation Ministry with us on Monday, 21st October at Crown Jesus. Ron will be with us all the way from Canada to share his experience of a Catholic Ministry with a heart for developing missional parishes.”

Of course, “Catholic” may give some people a warning but it could equally be used in the actual meaning of the word, which means “all-embracing”, and may be used, grammatically correctly, by any church really.

That is why the term Roman Catholic is useful to help make it clear what we are talking about when we discuss what is generally known as Catholicism.

Regardless of whether Mitch is trying to obscure the “Catholic” aspect or not, he is quite simply promoting a man and organisation who are in open rebellion against God.

Sadly, this is not the first time that Mitch has chosen Romish compromise over faithfulness to God’s Word.

Indeed, when Methodist minister Rev John Alderdice (pictured, above) engaged in his truly despicable ecumenical betrayal of the gospel by preaching at the Clonard Monastery Novena in June (which you can read about by clicking here) and bringing attention to it on his Twitter page, who was quick to comment and cheer him on?

Crown Jesus Ministries’ Mitch, of course.

After asking Rev John Alderdice (pictured, below as the blasphemous Mass is offered) how he got on, with a praying emoji beside his comment, the Methodist compromiser said it was “incredible”.

The response from Mitch? He said he was “cheering you on bro” before quoting “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

The quote was: “Diversity is not a threat to church unity. The Holy Spirit, sent by the Father and the Son, transforms our hearts and enables us to enter into the perfect communion of the blessed Trinity, where all things find their unity.”

Mitch ended his comment with #PopeFrancis. You can see it, pictured below.

So there you go – Mitch is promoting the Pope’s sinful utterances and supporting ecumenical fellowship with those who are espousing hellish doctrines.

Those hellish doctrines, of course, include the blasphemous Mass we have already referenced above, the lie of purgatory, the sinful titles taken upon himself by the Pope, the worship of Mary and prayers to saints and for the dead, as well as, worst of all, its absolute and total denial of the precious doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.

Crown Jesus Ministries, just yesterday (Friday), hosted an event entitled ‘Evangelists Gathering 2019’, with two guest speakers.

The first was David Legge, a formerly traditional preacher who has, for whatever sad reason, descended into the charismatic, easy-believist deceit movement in Ulster, whose antics you can read about by clicking here.

The second was Pastor Tim Robinson (pictured, above) of a church which seems to keep popping up in God-dishonouring events and alongside God-dishonouring characters.

That church is Newtownbreda Baptist Church, based in east Belfast.

Its lead minister is Pastor Trevor Ramsey, a big pal of ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas and enthusiastic member of the Evangelical Alliance.

Pastor Trevor Ramsey (pictured, below) has also invited in a comedian to Newtownbreda Baptist Church in an attempt to laugh people into heaven and promoted a venture called ‘Just One’, headlined by ‘intoxicated’ evangelist Canon J John.

A host of churches took part in that venture, including ‘prophetic art’ promoting CFC Belfast and, of course Mitch’s Crown Jesus Ministries.

We are forced to ask the question yet again of Pastor Trevor Ramsey and Newtownbreda Baptist Church – are they supporters of ecumenical compromise with Rome?

Previously Pastor Trevor Ramsey has claimed he isn’t, but actions speak louder than words and his church is repeatedly linking up with Crown Jesus Ministries and Mitch, a man who is continually promoting and supporting ecumenical fellowship with Rome.

It would certainly appear to be a situation of trying to have his cake and eat it.

Matthew 6:24 warns: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Which is it for Newtownbreda Baptist Church and Pastor Trevor Ramsey?

Is prioritising faithfulness to God’s Word his priority, or is fellowshipping with churches bringing shame to the church of Christ his main objective?

It cannot be both.

We would encourage anyone reading this to share this article widely to ensure these characters are challenged and questioned for their continually damaging the cause of Christ in this land.

And we would urge separation from Crown Jesus Ministries, Newtownbreda Baptist Church and the Evangelical Alliance, as well as any meeting led by David Legge.

In this increasingly sinful age, where a lax attitude has swept through so much of the professing church, we need to be ever-vigilant and ever-ready to speak out against falsehood and error.

1 Peter 5:8: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”.

Isaiah 58:1: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

‘Prophetic art’ – Belfast church teaching people to paint your prophecy

There are some bizarre events led by churches within the charismaniac movement, but one that was held at Christian Fellowship Church Belfast (or CFC Belfast) on Saturday past will take some beating in that regard.

This church, which is based on the Belmont Road in east Belfast, played host to a ‘Prophetic Art Conference’.

What exactly prophetic art is we are really rather unsure, though we have visited a few online pages showing some pictures, including someone who had written down ‘Be still and know that I am God’ and coloured in the individual letters.

This was, apparently, prophetic.

The website Prophecy Through Art tries to justify such nonsense by saying that “Our Father is a creative God” because He made the world.

Well, yes, of course He did but it is scarcely equivalent to writing out a Bible quote or drawing a picture of a heart and somehow labelling it prophetic.

Throughout the entirety of the prophetic books, of which there are rather a lot, and the various prophesies in other books of the Bible, of which there are rather a lot as well, there is a notable absence of prophets pulling out an easel and doing a watercolour to explain the situation in the land.

We don’t have Elijah delivering a picture of dried up rivers to Ahab at the start of 1 Kings 17 or Ezekiel sculpting his impression of the vision of the dry bones in Ezekiel 37.

Of course, were they to have done so, they were prophesying of future events, whereas the examples of prophetic art are simply drawings people take to mean something to them, an artistic version of a fortune cookie or horoscope.

The event at CFC Belfast was ran by a group called Acts Ministries International (AMI) who claim it “equips you in hearing the voice of God through art”.

Acts Ministries International was born out of Phoenix Vineyard Church, and certainly the Vineyard Church name is a leading figure on both sides of the Atlantic in all manner of charismatic nonsense.

Andrew Montgomery (pictured, top) is a leader of AMI Ireland, a local branch of this charismatic organisation which, like so many others, is obsessed with “signs and wonders”.

He is also an Associate Pastor of another charismatic church, called Destination Church Belfast, based in the Newtownabbey area in the north of the city.

Andrew Montgomery apparently gave an “introduction to prophecy” at the event, while another member of his church, a Diane Latimer, helped lead one of the workshops, which we will elaborate upon shortly.

Another session was led by a Jill McKee (pictured, below), who is the Clerk of Session at First Presbyterian Church, Ballynahinch in County Down.

She ought not to hold the position she does, of course.

1 Timothy 3:1-2, 12 says: “This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.”

First Presbyterian Church, Ballynahinch is certainly not a church which anyone should wish to associate themselves with.

It is currently taking part in an Alpha Course initiative, that leaven-filled scheme which is ran by that Rome lover Nicky Gumbel and also recently held a line dance in its church hall in yet another example of worldly pleasures being introduced to the church.

As an aside, the Methodist and Baptist churches in Ballynahinch are also taking part in that Alpha Course.

While, generally speaking, Methodist churches are to be studiously avoided, the Baptist Church is a rather mixed bag in Ulster.

It would appear Ballynahinch Baptist Church is one to be wary of.

Lynsey Grierson of Cadence House of Prayer, an inter-denominational grouping in Bangor, County Down, was also leading a workshop.

While we had not previously heard of Cadence House of Prayer, their website states it was set up by a husband and wife duo (the charismatics do love those) called Denise and Frederick Hayward, who met apparently “when they were both in full-time ministry as part of a worship and healing dance team”.

Of course they were. We believe that says it all.

Also helping lead sessions were a Victor Mitchell of the Journey Community Church in Antrim, who enthusiastically promoted the disgraceful, heretical Bethel Supernatural Ministries earlier this year, an Erin Charteris of another CFC branch in Strandtown, also Belfast, and a Claire Fair of King’s Church in Bangor.

The pastor of King’s Church is a character we have featured previously, Glen Mitchell (pictured, above), due to his rejection of the Biblical account of creation in favour of the Christ denying blasphemy known as the Big Bang Theory (his endorsement of this heresy is pictured, below), as well as his expression of disappointment when a vote to light up the town hall in his nearby town of Newtownards in honour of sodomy was overturned by local councillors.

So there certainly was an encouraging pattern to follow for those in attendance.

Indeed, rather ironically, it was something of a painting by numbers collection of charismatics and Christ deniers posing as religious leaders.

The workshops within the ‘Prophetic Art Conference’ certainly were unusual.

First among these was entitled ‘Art Reach’ – this taught attendees “how God communicates through art for reaching to your community”.

That really does sound illuminating. The individuals running that workshop were a Kadie Hooley and Brianna Robinson of Youth With A Mission (YWAM). What that mission is, going by that workshop synopsis, is anyone’s guess.

Workshop two was entitled ‘Painting His Heart’ and was brought by Jill McKee of First Presbyterian Church, Ballynahinch. This workshop taught you “how to grow in intimacy with God connecting with Him for others”.

Again, answers on a postcard from anyone who knows what that means.

The third workshop is perhaps the most outrageous and ludicrous of the lot.

It was entitled ‘Corporate Prophetic Art’ which allowed attendees to “be equipped to spontaneously draw and clearly communicate the prophetic gift in a worship setting”.

This truly is nonsense.

Lynsey Grierson of Cadence House of Prayer, Diane Latimer of Destination Church Belfast and Victor Mitchell of Journey Community Church in Antrim were responsible for that exercise.

And the fourth, and, on the face of it, least ludicrous workshop was called ‘The Secret Place’, in which you could “experience how art and writing can deepen your personal relationship with God through journaling”. Claire Fair of King’s Church Bangor and Erin Charteris of CFC Strandtown led the way on that one.

After these four sessions, there was then a cup of tea before engaging in worship and ministry, which would apparently include “opportunities to engage in prophetic art”.

This truly is a sad event, tricking those in attendance into thinking they have some prophetic gift, when all they are doing is drawing little pictures.

It most emphatically meets the bar of that which is warned against in 2 Timothy 4:4, which says: “And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

The idea that someone drawing a heart, as we have seen on some websites we have viewed discussing so-called ‘prophetic art’, could possibly be construed as prophetic is, in fact, pathetic.

As we have said before when discussing the outrageous so-called prophecies of the likes of Bethel Supernatural Ministries’ Havilah Cunnington, such vague generalities are not the currency that prophets dealt in in the Bible.

Look at the prophecy Jeremiah disclosed to King Zedekiah in the closing days of his reign.

Jeremiah 37:17 says: “Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took him out: and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said, Is there any word from the Lord? And Jeremiah said, There is: for, said he, thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon.”

Did Jeremiah speak obtusely or abstractly? Did he sketch a drawing which Zedekiah was free to interpret whichever way he saw fit? Or did he clearly set forth the actual message of God?

Of course, this was a negative prophecy for Zedekiah which Jeremiah gave, and that is certainly not the sort of “prophecy” you would get from people taking part in these events.

It always seems to be a mindlessly positive prophecy, replete with the amazing plans God has for their life and the wonderful way in which He is going to use them.

If we look at what might be termed a positive prophecy from the Scripture, we will see once more that it was spoken plainly.

Jeremiah 29:10-14 says: “For thus saith the Lord, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.”

Here is a prophecy of the deliverance of the children of Israel from oppression and that they would return to their own land after 70 years of captivity.

Is this the sort of thing that these people are prophesying of? Of course it isn’t.

They couldn’t prophesy an event happening next week, never mind in 70 years.

Dear reader, do not be taken in by such an outrageous event, but rather be steadfast in your opposition to such gimmicks and nonsense.

Also, be careful not to associate yourself with churches involved in this outrage, such as First Presbyterian Church, Ballynahinch, Destination Church Belfast, King’s Church, Bangor, Journey Community Church, Antrim as well as any church promoting the Alpha Course.

Let us be even bold as Jeremiah was in the prophecy above to Zedekiah, when he said “thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon”.

Speaking to a man who had the power to put him to death, Jeremiah told him the one thing which he wanted to hear the least.

Those in these churches and in the wider charismatic or ecumenical movement hate to hear what the Bible has to say on their unscriptural antics.

However, to be faithful, we are bound by God to say these things.

And let us strive to put the pleasing of God above the pleasing of man.

Acts 5:29: “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”

Wrightbus apparently saved, but Green Pastures criticism should focus on its heretic promoting

Colossians 3:1-2: “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”

While the whole sorry saga surrounding the future of the financially stricken Wrightbus, and the Green Pastures Church so closely linked to the owners which has benefited from around £16 million of donations in recent years from the struggling firm, has played out, there is an even greater shame than the mess which has filled newspapers for the past number of weeks.

It is absolutely tragic that the jobs of so many people, affecting so many families, could be left hanging by a thread.

Mercifully, it appears these jobs will now be saved following an announcement of a deal in principle having been struck.

A lot of ire has been focused on Green Pastures, the church ran by self-proclaimed “visionary” Jeff Wright, who also happens to be the majority shareholder of the Cornerstone Group which owned Wrightbus.

This has included peaceful protests at Green Pastures these past few Sundays, and much of the anger surrounds the frankly eye-watering level of financial support the church has received.

£16 million could pay for a lot of hymn books and pews, not that a church like Green Pastures would favour such old-fashioned items like that.

The generosity of Wrightbus seemed to fly in the face of conventional wisdom as well, given they made a “charitable donation” of more than £4 million to Green Pastures in the same year as Wrightbus recorded a pre-tax loss of £1.15 million.

We are far from being financiers or hot shot business leaders, but surely even a child would understand that doesn’t make a great deal of sense?

The anger and frustration of workers was further exacerbated by what seemed to be the glacial pace discussions over a rescue deal for the business from an English investor seemed to be progressing, with the “visionary” Pastor Jeff Wright again drawing a great deal of criticism.

The reason for this was due to the seemingly rather bizarre arrangement whereby the Wrightbus premises are owned separately from the manufacturing business and held in a company called Whirlwind Property Two, which is not part of the Wright group and is therefore not under the control of the administrator.

That property company is controlled by Pastor Jeff Wright.

Pastor Jeff Wright is one of the most senior figures, if not the most senior figure in Green Pastures and his church issued a statement on their Facebook page on 27th September, two days after it became apparent just how much of a hole Wrightbus was in.

Given his status, it is hard to imagine how he didn’t play a role in the composition of the statement, which could merely state how grateful Green Pastures was for the eye-watering donations it has received.

They said: “As any church would be, we are devastated by the huge number of job losses at the Wright Group and we are especially heartbroken because of the impact this will have on so many individuals and families in our local towns and communities.

“We understand the hurt, anger and confusion felt by so many, as many within our own congregation have been personally affected by these job losses and we are doing all we can to support them at this time.

“As with any donation we receive as a church, we are incredibly grateful for the support the Wright family have offered us. They, along with many others, chose to be generous when their family business enabled them to do so.

“The leadership, staff and people of Green Pastures Church will continue to love and serve people in our community in and through these challenging times.”

Cold comfort was the theme of the more charitable responses by those responding to the statement on Facebook.

And while Green Pastures and Pastor Jeff Wright have been on the receiving end of scathing criticism throughout this saga, we want to address something else about Green Pastures and Pastor Jeff Wright.

That is the leading role that Green Pastures and Pastor Jeff Wright are playing in the increasingly prominent charismania movement in Northern Ireland.

Green Pastures is typical of such churches in that services are more akin to rock concerts and where all forms of traditional worship are eschewed in favour of worldly entertainment.

And they welcomed into their midst in the spring one of the leading characters in the wretched American megachurch, Bethel Supernatural Ministries.

There are so many issues with Bethel it is hard to know where to start, but some of its dreadful charismatic excesses can be seen by clicking here.

Havilah Cunnington (or Havilah Cunning-one, pictured, below) of Bethel Supernatural Ministries performed at Green Pastures and claims to be a “prophet” and even sells a “Prophetic Personalities” course for $49 which apparently leads people to be “unleash[ed] into a bold life of hearing from heaven”.

Colossians 2:8 bears a warning for us of falling for the nonsense spewed out by the like of Havilah Cunning-one. It says: “Beware lest any man (or woman, in this instance) spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

We have highlighted her outrageous claims and ludicrous excuse for prophesy previously, which you can read about by clicking here.

To recommend Havilah Cunning-one to anyone as a spiritual guide is reprehensible and yet that is what Pastor Jeff Wright has done by having her at Green Pastures.

While there may well be justifiable criticism of both Pastor Jeff Wright and Green Pastures over their role in Wrightbus’ collapse, there is much more fault to be found in promoting such disgraceful nonsense in the name of Christ.

The elevation of so many characters with no theological training in so many churches, particularly those in the charismaniac movement, is reminiscent of the religious situation in the days of the evil king of Israel, Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

1 Kings 13:33: “After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way, but made again of the lowest of the people priests of the high places: whosoever would, he consecrated him, and he became one of the priests of the high places.”

“Whosoever would” became a priest, and that appears to be the chief qualification to become a ‘pastor’ in so many of these churches.

Such a selection process was considered a symptom of Jeroboam carrying on in his “evil way” and the result was the dreadful pollution of religion in the land and the promotion of paganism and idolatry.

This is what we are seeing in Ulster today, sadly.

And what this does is leads to widespread ignorance, an environment in which all manner of false teaching can flourish as the listener is stripped of the power of discernment.

Hosea 4:6: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”

Creating such an environment at Green Pastures where so many people are taken in by the bright lights, loud music and razzmatazz is what this church should be receiving most criticism for.

Dear reader, make sure your voice is heard audibly and continually sounding forth against such churches as that of Green Pastures.

Let us never be afraid to speak out against any fellowship which fails to abide by Biblical standards and any church which promotes heretics like those who find their home within the likes of Bethel.

Let us guard our separation diligently.

2 Corinthians 6:17: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.
