Presbyterian minister who excuses prayers for the dead to bring Clonard priest into Protestant church

A Redemptorist priest from Clonard Monastery on the Irish republican Falls Road in Belfast is to be welcomed with open arms into a Presbyterian Church in the city tomorrow night.

‘Father’ Ciaran O’Callaghan will be attending Fitzroy Presbyterian Church alongside the self-proclaimed “most hugged Presbyterian minister in the history of the Catholic Church in Ireland”, the Rev Ken Newell, a former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, this Sunday, 20 May.

Readers may well be familiar with Fitzroy Presbyterian Church as it is a hub of ecumenical compromise and helps host the annual ecumenical talking shop, the Four Corners Festival, jointly led by its current minister, Rev Steve Stockman and ‘Father’ Martin Magill, a noted emissary of Papal deceit.

The Four Corners Festival is a quasi (perhaps queasy would be a better word!) political / religious talking shop, and it’s an event we have previously featured, as it was during that event Emmanuel Church leader Alain Emerson spoke in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast.

Indeed, our photograph at the top of this article of Rev Ken Newell in full ecumenical flow may be familiar to eagle eyed readers of this page. It will certainly be familiar to Emmanuel leader Alain Emerson as it is in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast.

This event tomorrow night (Sunday) is being hyped as part of Fitzroy’s ‘Day of Reconciliation’ to mark Pentecost Sunday.

Reconciliation is a key watchword of the ecumenist and the apostate in Northern Ireland for those keen to take advantage of the bloody, lawless actions of the devil-inspired IRA in our country during what has euphemistically come to be known as ‘The Troubles’.

Those lying preachers who have “a form of godliness” but are guilty of “denying the power thereof” (2 Timothy 3:5) use that strife to trick Protestants into thinking the solution to the problems in Ulster is to compromise with the Papists.

However, nothing could be further from the truth.

God hates paganism and idolatry, which Romanism certainly is, and one only has to look at the records of the kings of Judah to see for whom the highest praise was recorded. It was for those who tore down all manner of false idols and places of worship to their blasphemous gods.

Look at the Holy Spirit’s appraisal of Hezekiah in 2 Kings 18:3-6: “And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father did. He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. He trusted in the Lord God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him. For he clave to the Lord, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the Lord commanded Moses.”

Josiah was similarly praised when he took the throne and carried out a purge of pagan idolatry. Showing an evangelical spirit, he even went into the land outside Judah’s borders to do the same. 2 Chronicles 34:6: “And so did he in the cities of Manasseh, and Ephraim, and Simeon, even unto Naphtali…”

There is no praise for those who, rather than tearing down the altars of paganism, sought to join in with them.

And this is exactly what the likes of Rev Ken Newell and Rev Steve Stockman are doing by their continual compromise with Rome.

Rev Ken Newell is an arch-ecumenist, and had a notoriously cosy relationship with a ‘Father’ Gerry Reynolds, who is the predecessor of ‘Father’ Ciaran O’Callaghan, the Romanist who will be in attendance with Rev Ken Newell at Fitzroy Presbyterian Church.

The pair were nigh on inseparable during Rev Ken Newell’s 32 years as minister in Fitzroy Presbyterian Church (he was succeeded in his post by Rev Steve Stockman).

Of course, one has to wonder why Fitzroy Presbyterian Church has been allowed to go down the broad road of apostasy for more than four decades and the leadership of the Presbyterian Church bears a dreadful burden of guilt in this matter.

Both Rev Ken Newell and Rev Steve Stockman signed the Westminster Confession of Faith at their ordination, which states that the Pope is “that Antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition”.

Clearly, neither man believes that, so why are they allowed to continue to deceive and spread their lies?

Worse still, in 2004 Rev Ken Newell was chosen by the Presbyterian Church to be its moderator – what a grave affront to God.

Indeed, Rev Ken Newell and Rev Steve Stockman are like the false prophets God condemned in Ezekiel 13:10-16: “Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter: Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it. Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it? Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it. So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it; To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord God.”

This is a remarkably apt passage, for “one built up a wall” and “others daubed it”. Is that not exactly what has happened with Rev Ken Newell (the builder) and Rev Steve Stockman (the dauber)? Rev Ken Newell began this ecumenical construction and Rev Steve Stockman now tends to it to maintain the facade of Christianity to keep the people from seeing the truth.

Look at what God says about this wall – He will “rend it with a stormy wind in my fury”; He will “consume it”; He will “break down the wall” and “bring it down to the ground”.

He will do this so that “the foundation thereof shall be discovered”. Just like the foolish man who built the house upon the sand, when the storms come it will all come tumbling down for it is a lie, a deceit, a counterfeit, a delusion, an illusion.

Yet further evidence of the unsuitability of Rev Ken Newell to occupy the pulpit in any place of worship was demonstrated when he said it was “sectarian” to object to the Romish deceit of prayers to the dead.

Showing he has a greater love for Romanism than Protestantism, this counterfeit cleric said that because Orange Order members were advised by the leadership not to use the Papist term ‘RIP’ (Rest In Peace) when paying tribute to those who have died, there was a “reservoir of sectarianism” at large in the Orange Order, a Protestant fraternal organisation.

The term, of course, is utterly unscriptural, not that such a thing would matter to an old compromiser like Rev Ken Newell. We have previously stressed the anti-Christian nature of prayers for the dead. One must only look at the account of David’s child to Bathsheba who died to see that prayers for the dead are a dangerous, blasphemous nonsense. You can read the account in 2 Samuel 12:16-23.

Reader, please pray that God will hasten to tear down the deceitful walls of builders and daubers like Rev Ken Newell and Rev Steve Stockman and please pray that the true reconciliation of sinners repenting and asking Christ for salvation will take hold in our land.

1 John 1:9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Romans 5:10-11: “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.”

Emmanuel leader Alain Emerson continues ecumenical descent by organising prayer event with Rome’s blessing

The leader of the Emmanuel Church, based in the Craigavon area, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, just can’t help himself when it comes to ecumenical compromise.

Not content with addressing a meeting in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast as part of the ecumenical Four Corners Festival in February, at which he endorsed the ecumenical, ritualistic, anti-Christian form of worship known as Taizé, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson then addressed another ecumenical meeting in Ballymena last month with Rome’s stamp of approval.

And now he is throwing his full weight behind organising an ecumenical prayer initiative which has been granted the seal of approval from Rome.

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is the name of the prayer initiative, founded by Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby in 2016.

Any prayer initiative launched by such a Bible rejecter as the Arch-apostate of Canterbury cannot be founded on solid rock.

After all, he was previously featured on ‘Protestant Revival’ for endorsing prayer to Mary (1 Timothy 2:5 clearly demonstrates the blasphemy of this) and encouraging Protestants to join in prayer with the Pope, “that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition”.

We also revealed last week the cosy relationship of the Arch-apostate of Canterbury with the Pope, as well as his close friendship with the leaders of the Vineyard movement, one of whose local leaders declared he was “all in” with the Pope.

So this gives a fine example of the sort of clerical company Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson believes it is acceptable to associate with. As a side note, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson recently spoke at the Causeway Coast Vineyard, where Alan Scott made those disgraceful comments regarding the Pope. It would also appear it was far from his first visit there.

We had previously highlighted this prayer event being so fulsomely championed by Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson as we offered him the opportunity not to engage in his further ecumenical compromise last month, an opportunity which, of course, he did not take.

Then, our chief concern with the event was the venue it was to be held at this Saturday, 19 May in Belfast, May Street Presbyterian Church, a church synonymous with mean compromise with Rome.

However, at the time, we were unaware of how strong the Romanist connections to this prayer initiative were.

In a Church of England article about the launch of the initiative, which is also championed by Archbishop of York John Sentamu, it says: “The campaign’s broad ecumenical appeal led to more than 50 denominations and traditions being involved last year; including the Roman Catholic Church.”

The Church of England is clearly entirely satisfied with Rome’s involvement and, indeed, proud of it, given that of the “more than 50 denominations and traditions” involved last year, it was the very first one they mentioned.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is currently Director of a group called 24-7 Prayer Ireland, which is organising this prayer event, meaning he is one of the leading figures in this ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative.

At the Church of Ireland’s Synod last week, the Irish launch of the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative was held jointly by the so-called Protestant Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke, whose disgraceful Rome loving behaviour we have previously covered, and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Armagh, Eamon Martin.

The pair speak at length in an article on the Church of Ireland Diocese of Derry and Raphoe website, with ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ at least twice being referred to as an “ecumenical” initiative.

As if this was not enough evidence to damn this event already, a quick look at the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ website itself will finish the job.

On its website, there are resources for Roman Catholics to pray a Novena during the celebrations.

Novenas are something we previously dealt with when addressing the apostasy of Antrim Church of Ireland cleric, Rev Stephen McBride.

Novenas are “often used to ask specific saints to pray for us”, says the ‘Pray More Novenas’ website, meaning they involve the invocation of saints, forbidden in 1 Timothy 2:5.

We also recounted at that time how “by the 11th century, the Novena practice had become a means in Christianity of praying to petition personal or spiritual favour to a saint, such as Virgin Mary. After the Reformation and Counter-Reformation era, the Catholic Church formally approved Novenas, in particular through the papal approvals of a large number of Novenas by Pope Pius IX.

“The practice of the Novena is based in early Christianity, where masses were held for nine days with devotional prayers to someone who has died.”

This means the Novena has its roots in prayer for the dead, which is an utter affront to the gospel.

Despite this, the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ initiative is encouraging Novenas to be prayed under its banner.

And the Roman Catholic Church of England and Wales has said on its website: ‘We’re supporting this initiative with our Pentecost Novena”.

What a shameful event this is, and what a shameful event Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured below, speaking in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church back in February) is not only supporting but indeed organising.

We will remind Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson and his ilk of what the Bible has to say.

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

Jude v 3: “…ye should earnestly contend for the faith…”

2 Corinthians 6:14-17: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”

There can be no light fellowshipping with darkness, therefore when Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson and his acolytes gather together they may think they are spreading light but instead they are enveloping themselves in darkness.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is doing this proudly and unashamedly. In a video he has posted on the 24-7 Prayer Ireland twitter page he is encouraging everyone to go along, making a virtue of the Arch-apostate of Canterbury supporting the initiative and claiming an event which is an affront to God is going to be “beautiful”.

He also points out it is not the first time he has led such an anti Biblical meeting, and last year he held it in St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast, probably second only to Corrymeela as the home of ecumenical deceit in Ulster.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson says: “Last year we had an event in St Anne’s Cathedral at the same time of year and it was such a beautiful joy.

“Please come and join us. It’s part of a wider global initiative where people all over the world are going to be praying that night. It’s championed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby himself.

“We’d love to play our part here, it’s going to be beautiful.”

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson would do well to consider what Jesus said in Matthew 12:37: “…by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”

These prayers offered up will not be heard by God, they will go no further than the ceiling. God has already judged and condemned their actions.

Isaiah 1:11-17: “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord : I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.”

However, if Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson and his followers repudiate such God-defying conduct as this ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ initiative and put away the evil of their doings, God is ready to show mercy to them.

Verse 18 of that chapter says: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”

God has called on us to separate from the works of darkness. It is our prayer that anyone reading who has not yet separated themselves will do so and anyone who is not yet saved will call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation today.

Methodist President Rev Laurence Graham attends and preaches at Roman Catholic pilgrimage

The President of the Methodist Church in Ireland has just today further emphasised his love of Popery by being the guest speaker at a Roman Catholic event at a well known Romanist pilgrimage site.

Rev Laurence (or Lawless) Graham (pictured, below) was uttering his ecumenical message of mean compromise at Lough Derg, one of the best known Papal pilgrimage sites in Ireland.

It is located just a few miles over the border with the Republic of Ireland, close to the County Donegal village of Pettigo. Pilgrims travel to what is called Station Island on the Lough and it is there they hold their three day pilgrimage at any point over the summer months.

Due to the conditions over winter time, the island is only accessed between May and October, meaning the supposedly Protestant Rev Lawless Graham has wasted little time this year in making his way over to bring shame on himself and his church.

Rev Lawless Graham in this one action is guilty of many of the abominations specified in Proverbs 6:16-19: “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

The feet of Rev Lawless Graham certainly have proven to be swift in running to mischief and several other of those abominations have been carried out through this despicable compromise with the darkness of Rome.

Courting Romanist favour is nothing new for Rev Lawless Graham as just a few weeks ago it was revealed he was one of the so-called Protestants who co-signed a grovelling letter to the Pope, begging him to come to Northern Ireland during his planned trip to the Republic of Ireland this summer, something we addressed on this page at the time.

The event he addressed today was called a ‘Day of Friendship and Prayer’. It ran from 10.30am through to 3pm, with Rev Lawless Graham delivering his soft soap soliloquy of ecumenical compromise at high noon.

As usual with the Roman Catholic Church, which likes to extract as much money as possible from its deluded adherents, cheerleaders and hangers on, there was a fairly hefty fee of £22 to listen to this drivel. However, that fee did include your boat trip and refreshments. Quite the bargain then!

Directly after Rev Lawless Graham’s cosy message with his Papist fellow travellers, there was a prayer service.

We will repeat the most pertinent question we have asked on numerous occasions here at ‘Protestant Revival’ – to whom were these prayers being addressed? Were they praying to God, or were some of those in attendance praying to Mary or saints, as Rome utterly blasphemously teaches.

It is, we believe, necessary to clearly state the position of the Word of God on this matter. It says in 1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

That is what the Word of God says. It doesn’t matter what some old Romanist tries to say or what some apostate allegedly Protestant rascal tries to say, prayer is to be addressed to God and God alone.

Rev Lawless Graham was there in the company of the Prior of Lough Derg, ‘Father’ Laurence (or La, apparently) Flynn, who himself is a notable friend of Protestants who want to sell out their heritage to Rome.

‘Father’ La Flynn was one of the founding clergymen in the Fermanagh Churches Forum, a God defying ecumenical grouping, the despicable actions of which we have previously addressed.

And this unholy mingling which is being practiced by Rev Lawless Graham has been forewarned to us through Scripture, as have the dreadful consequences.

However, it has been wholly disregarded by apostates like Rev Lawless Graham.

Psalm 106:34-36,39-42 says: “They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them: But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions. Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance. And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.”

There are many points which could be made and comparisons drawn here, but we are told they “mingled among the heathen” before being given into “the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them”.

Rome is ever the same, it hasn’t shifted an inch since the Reformation and it still hates Protestantism virulently. This is why it is so pleased to have so-called Protestant fools falling prostrate at its feet because it has Protestantism where it wants it.

This situation is unfolding in front of us in Ulster and unless Protestants wake up to this sell-out of their heritage, then they that hate Protestants will rule over Protestants.

We need revival in this land desperately today.

We need apostate clerics thrown out of their pulpits today.

We need prayer that God will move again in our land.

We need prayer that God will make his mighty arm bare, uplift this land and cause it to be on fire for Him once more.

Please, dear reader, pray that God will cast down the enemies of the gospel, be they so-called Protestant or Roman Catholic, and send a mighty revival to this land.

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.”

Well said to Clogher Valley Free Presbyterian minister Rev Peter McIntyre – the Mass is most assuredly evil

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

Regular readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ will probably be aware this is a verse of Scripture we regularly quote in our articles.

This is for good reason as it is a crystal clear reminder to avoid staining yourself with the sins of this world, and it is reinforced with a command to not only shun such evil, but to condemn it for what it is.

It is the perfect riposte to those twisters who would misinterpret, be it wilfully or ignorantly, the words of Jesus in Matthew 7 when he says to “Judge not”, carefully ignoring the words of Jesus in John 7:24 when he said: “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”

And it is in this context of reproving the works of darkness that we pay fulsome tribute to Rev Peter McIntyre (pictured, top), minister of Clogher Valley Free Presbyterian Church in County Tyrone, who recently wrote an article describing the Roman Catholic Mass as “evil”.

Rev Peter McIntyre is, of course, absolutely right.

Writing in the Protestant magazine, the ‘Ulster Bulwark’, Rev McIntyre outlined the natural and proper objection all true Protestants should have to the Mass.

He said “there can be no greater assault on the gospel” and it is “impossible” for a Protestant to attend as a “neutral observer”.

Given that a church is a place of worship, he said, it means being present “is to be part of the worship, and as at any Mass, the wafer is translated into Christ, and this becomes the object of worship”.

Rev McIntyre continued: “Do we not owe it to Christ to be separate from such evils which grossly offend the Christ who offered himself for us?

“Many Protestants today, rather than sacrifice reputation, willingly expose themselves to the blasphemy of the Mass.

“Let us object to all that brings shame on the gospel.”

We wholeheartedly commend Rev Peter McIntyre for clearly and unequivocally taking his stand and earnestly contending for the faith, as we are instructed to do in Jude v 3.

The Mass by its very nature is evil and is a most grave blasphemy against God.

Romanist doctrine completely contradicts the Bible and this is most evident in the Mass, which is the central act of Papist worship.

Rome teaches that the bread and wine to be consumed as a symbol of Jesus’ body that was broken and blood that was shed actually becomes the body and blood of Christ.

This is what the Roman Catholic Church has to say about the Mass: “… by the consecration of the bread and the wine there takes place a change of the whole substance of the bread into the substance of the body of Christ our Lord and of the whole substance of the wine into the substance of the blood.”

Going further than making this absurd claim, they then say that anyone opposed to this is a liar and should be excommunicated, though of course being excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church would be a step forward.

It says such a thing of anyone who “denieth that in the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist are contained truly, really, and substantially, the body and blood together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ”. It then says that anyone who “denieth that wonderful and singular conversion of the whole substance of the wine into the blood, let him be anathema” or cursed.

In the 39 Articles which are supposed to govern the Church of Ireland’s doctrine and beliefs, it is stated that the Mass is a “blasphemous fable and dangerous deceit”.

It is blasphemous because it is taught in the Mass that Christ is being sacrificed again and again. However, the Bible says in Hebrews 10:12: “But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.” Christ was only sacrificed once, he only had to be sacrificed once. His single sacrifice cleanses us from all sins.

It is dangerous because it leads people astray from the true gospel of Christ and as we are told in Galatians 1:9: “If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed”.

Making their blasphemy even worse, Rome uses that language used in Scripture under the inspiration of God to pronounce its anathema against anyone who preaches the true gospel of Christ.

This is why Rev Peter McIntyre is wholly justified in saying it is evil, grossly offensive to Christ, blasphemous and shameful to the gospel.

We must reiterate the message of Galatians 1:9: “If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed”.

The proponents of any other gospel, the Holy Spirit says, are “accursed”. Rome is a church whose cup is full to overflowing with “damnable heresies” and Protestants must not drink of that cup by attendance at the Mass.

What this also means is dear Roman Catholics are being damned to hell by the disgusting deceits of Rome.

Vexatious emissaries of Papal deceit and Romish subterfuge such as ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty and ‘Father’ Sean McManus, two papists of County Fermanagh heritage, have attacked Rev Peter McIntyre for the stand he has taken, labelling it anti-Catholicism, which is apparently a bad thing.

However, there is a world of difference between being anti-Catholicism and anti-Catholic.

We, like Rev Peter McIntyre, who made that clear in response to the criticism he received, are resolutely the former, but resolutely not the latter.

Every soul needs saved, be it the soul of someone from the Protestant tradition, the Catholic tradition, or any other tradition.

Rome knows only how to lead souls to hell with its blasphemous, tyrannical system of works.

Only Biblical Protestantism, which is true Biblical Christianity, can lead a lost soul to heaven.

True Protestantism teaches of salvation by faith alone and that is what God’s Word teaches.

Ephesians 2:8-9: “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.”

Dear sinner, be you Protestant, Catholic or any other faith, please “consider your latter end” and turn to Christ for salvation by faith alone.

Romans 10:8-9: “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

Coleraine Church of Ireland welcomes in Roman Catholic Mass music

The focus of ‘Protestant Revival’ continues to be on the north coast of Northern Ireland and indeed Coleraine in particular.

Having highlighted the blasphemy of the leader of the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church, Alan Scott, in his declaration of unity with the Pope, we have been informed of more mingling with Romish deceit in that area.

This time the ecumenical compromise can be seen in St Patrick’s Church of Ireland in Coleraine, as the church boasted a celebration of the music of the central, blasphemous act of Roman Catholic worship, the Mass.

Gregorian chant is known as the music of the Roman rite, and it was part of a special musical service on offer in St Patrick’s Church of Ireland recently, on Friday, 27 April.

At the Mass, Rome claims that Christ is sacrificed again, meaning they claim He has been sacrificed again and again and again in every chapel across the world repeatedly for centuries.

This is blasphemous nonsense, as the Bible clearly demonstrates in Hebrews 10:11-12. It says: “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”.

Gregorian chant also includes what are known as ‘Marian antiphons’, or ‘hymns to Mary’, meaning this form of music is also used to worship Mary, which is a blasphemous rejection of God’s Word.

Again, the Bible is clear that we are to worship none other than God. 1 Timothy 2:5 says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

The music was brought by a choir called Counterpoint, which, as far as we can see, appears to be a choir based in the Coleraine area.

They have practices in both St Patrick’s Church of Ireland and also First Coleraine Presbyterian Church, and indeed First Coleraine Presbyterian’s website carries an advert for the event, meaning both churches and their ministers, are complicit in such betrayal of Biblical Christianity.

The ministers at fault are Rev Roger Cooke of St Patrick’s Church of Ireland (pictured, above) and while First Coleraine Presbyterian Church currently has no minister, Rev Eddie Dorrans (pictured, below) currently has the charge there. Indeed Rev Eddie Dorrans is a veteran ecumenist, having been one of the three clergymen who set up the ecumenical grouping, Ballycastle Church Action, which we previously featured taking part in a God defying Good Friday walk which included the Roman Catholic Church.

He also helped lay the groundwork in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church for Mary worship to be endorsed by his successor, Rev John Stanbridge, which we also previously covered.

By facilitating the singing of the music of the Roman rite, which is blasphemous in its nature, these men are failing to guide their congregations as they ought to.

Ezekiel 3:18-19: “When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”

If ministers fail to warn their congregations of their wicked actions, and indeed in this case they are at best indulging them and at worst encouraging them, then there is a fearsome price to pay.

We need to have clean hands from the church of Rome and its blasphemies and deceits, not be indulging in its wicked practices.

Deuteronomy 22:9: “Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled.”

This verse, while referring to agricultural best practice, also has a clear application in the life of the Christian. Worship is not to be mingled with that of Rome, otherwise it is defiled. Just like Cain, who thought his offering would meet with God’s approval, it will be rejected.

When the children of Israel received the promise of entry to the promised land, God told them to utterly drive out the heathen living there at that time and to take nothing to do with them.

However, they failed to do so and, when they began to depart from God, they started to indulge in the religious practices of the heathen.

Judges 2:12-14: “And they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the Lord to anger. And they forsook the Lord , and served Baal and Ashtaroth. And the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel”.

We can justly say the Lord’s anger would be hot against the partakers in and supporters and attendees of such an event in a supposedly Protestant church as one that features the very music used in the “blasphemous fable and dangerous deceit” of the Roman Catholic Mass and which is used to blasphemously worship Mary.

Psalm 7:11 tells us that “God is angry with the wicked every day.”

If you are not saved, God is angry with you right now. The next verse of Psalm 7 tells us if you are in that position, God is readying Himself for judgement.

Psalm 7:12 says: “If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.”

Vineyard Church leader Alan Scott says Mary worship is fine and that he’s ‘all in’ with the Pope

The lead pastor of the Causeway Coast Vineyard church in Coleraine has declared his solidarity with the Pope, saying he is “all in” with that man of sin, and son of perdition.

Alan Scott (pictured, top) is the leader of the charismatic grouping and he has firmly nailed his colours to the Romanist mast with his shameful comments.

In the message he delivered at a meeting in the Causeway Coast Vineyard last year, which has only recently been brought to our attention, he said he could “journey” spiritually with the Pope, the man the Westminster Confession of Faith describes as that “Antichrist” as he blasphemously sets up himself up in the place of God.

In the message, Alan Scott recounts a meeting of the leaders of the Vineyard Church with the Pope. They are John and Eleanor (or Ele) Mumford, who, for the easily impressed, are also the parents of Marcus Mumford from the pop group Mumford and Sons.

He speaks of the meeting as if it is something pleasant to be in the company with the leader of the church which has led millions, perhaps billions, to hell.

While walking in to meet the Pope, John and Ele bump into their good friends who have just met with the “Antichrist” themselves, “Justin and Caroline”, who happen to be Justin and Caroline Welby, the Arch-Apostate of Canterbury, whom we have previously mentioned endorsing the Romish practice of prayer to saints, and his wife.

This shows that, even beside the Pope, their company is unbecoming those who would profess Christ as they are pals with a leader of the apostasy in the UK like Justin Welby.

As Alan Scott, who has recently moved to America to spread his deceit further, continues his drivel, which is still available online (though we wouldn’t advise listening to it – we have subjected ourselves to it so you don’t have to), one begins to wonder if he’s telling a bedtime story or supposedly preaching to people’s souls.

He then blatantly issues a defiant challenge to God. Alan Scott continues: “John and Ele went in to meet the Pope. Are the Proddies OK?”

Cue uproarious laughter from the dupes in the congregation.

What Alan Scott is saying is: “Did the two Protestants suddenly spontaneously combust when they went into the presence of the leader of Romanism? Were they struck down by God in that very second? No, they didn’t and they weren’t, and that’s because they did nothing wrong in socialising with the Pope.”

That’s what he is saying. He is directly challenging God with a breathtaking arrogance, irreverence and ignorance of His power and His anger at sin.

Quite often sin goes unpunished for a long time, quite often sinners don’t seem to be punished in this life. However, judgement will surely come, whether it be visibly on earth, or whether it be in eternity.

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13: “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.”

The heart of Alan Scott is fully set in himself to do evil, such as causing members of his congregation to laugh at the notion that God could possibly judge sin. He needs to bear in mind those nine words in verse 13: “But it shall not be well with the wicked”.

Job, in his disputations with his friends, looks at the lack of judgement there appears to be on the wicked, and indeed they often prosper, but it will not last and they are as chaff blown away in the wind. It says in Job 21:13-18: “They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave. Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me. How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger. They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.”

Temporarily safe from God’s judgement, John and Ele persist in their defiance of our Saviour by referring to the Pope as “His Holiness”, when there are few, if any, less holy people on this earth.

Ele then, Alan Scott relays to us, asks the Pope a question. She asks him, “What do you think the Holy Spirit is doing on the earth today?” As if the Pope has any idea what the Holy Spirit is doing.

However, the Holy Spirit knows what the Pope is doing. He is blaspheming His name by claiming to be the ‘Vicar of Christ on earth’, a role which was taken by the Holy Spirit after Christ had finished His work on earth.

However, Alan Scott gushes: “That’s a brilliant question for the Pope.” He then goes on to say the Pope replied by saying you can do three things with the Holy Spirit.

Alan Scott says the Pope said you can ignore him, grieve him (the Pope knows all about that one!) or you can “let the Holy Spirit have His way”.

And then Alan Scott confirmed his disgraceful blasphemy and sell out of God’s Word.

He says: “Now here’s the deal. John and Ele and Justin and Caroline and Francis, they will disagree on lots of things, but I can journey with anyone who’ll let the Holy Spirit have His way.

“If we’re agreed on that, I’m all in. If that’s your conviction of faith. Like we can talk about beads and flags, or we can just say, ‘Holy Spirit you’re welcome here’. It’s beautiful, right? And that’s the unity we aspire towards.”

We’re afraid, Alan Scott, that is the furthest thing from beautiful and it is certainly not the unity anyone should be aspiring towards.

What he is saying is that doctrines aren’t important, faithfulness to God’s Word is an irrelevance, we are all to be part of one big ecumenical gang as long as someone makes one single glib statement that they’ll let the Holy Spirit have His way.

Jesus said, “by their fruits ye shall know them” and the Pope grieves the Holy Spirit by his blasphemy, which will not be forgiven.

Matthew 12:31: “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”

Alan Scott and his followers in the Vineyard church and its friends need to remember that. The Pope’s sin will not be forgiven. He is damned already.

That must also cause you to question whoever wants to associate with the Pope and whoever says they are “all in” and can “journey” spiritually with the Pope. Any spiritual journey with the Pope leads to hell.

As for his comments about beads (representing Roman Catholicism) and flags (supposedly representing Protestantism), that is just absolute nonsense.

Alan Scott is clearly referring to rosary beads, a Romanist blasphemy used to pray to Mary for intercession, (1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”), but he is stating he does not have a problem with that and is endorsing worship of Mary. What utter blasphemy!

As for the reference to flags, a comment which drew foolish laughter from his audience, since when were flags a part of Protestant worship? There is no equivalence between the two. This is just silly nonsense from someone in a position as a church leader, which demands far more from its occupant.

2 Timothy 2:16-17: “But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker”.

That word “canker” can be rendered “cancer”, and it equates such foolish talk to be like a cancer in the way it spreads, and that is what Alan Scott is doing, he is spreading another gospel which will eat up people’s souls until they are entirely consumed and cast into hell.

Reader, please be wary of such utter departure from God’s Word. Be aware too that the leader of the Evangelical Alliance, Peter Lynas, is a leading figure in that church.

We previously featured Peter Lynas’ pathetic, glowing tribute to Billy Graham, a man who walked hand in hand with Rome and turned souls yearning for salvation back into the clutches of Rome. Peter Lynas has also previously stated his interest in hearing what the Pope has to say about moral issues, such as abortion.

True Christians shouldn’t want to hear what that “man of sin, and son of perdition” has to say on anything.

Luke 11:28: “But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”

Best of friends: Church of Ireland’s Dean Kenneth Hall and Romanist ecumenical buddy blocking memorial to IRA victims

This time last week, we at ‘Protestant Revival’ highlighted Dean of Clogher Rev Kenneth Hall hosting a service in his clerical domain, Enniskillen Church of Ireland cathedral, at which he and other traitors of Protestantism celebrated a Jesuit priest and endorsed the Romish practice of prayer to saints.

Now this week we must once again turn our attention to Dean Kenneth Hall as he remains silent in the light of the disgusting insult levelled at the community he is supposed to represent and defend by the Roman Catholic Church in Enniskillen with whom he is on such cosy terms.

The Roman Catholic Church has refused to allow a memorial to be placed on the site of where the IRA bombing of a Remembrance Day service took place in the town in 1987, murdering 11 Protestants instantly and a 12th a number of years later. Many more were injured as they gathered to pay their respects to the gallant fallen during two World Wars and other conflicts. The site where the bomb was placed just so happens to have been on Roman Catholic Church property, hence why they are able to stop the memorial being placed there.

The Romanist mouthpiece who has publicly stated his church’s opposition to the placing of this memorial to honour these unsuspecting victims of Irish republican barbarity is none other than Dean Kenneth Hall’s bosom buddy in ecumenical deceit, ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly, with whom he is pictured at the top of our article.

This practitioner of Papal blasphemy was in attendance in Enniskillen Cathedral a couple of weeks ago to cheer on the Protestant fools who gathered to exalt the man Rome calls ‘Blessed’ John Sullivan.

Always eyeing up an opportunity to pretend to be concerned about Protestants, he also had his nose poked into the events marking the 30th anniversary of the Enniskillen Bombing when Dean Kenneth Hall should have been chasing him.

And on 21 June Enniskillen Church of Ireland is organising an event at which ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly will speak, alongside another allegedly Protestant reprobate, the Bishop of Clogher, Right Eejit John McDowell. It is a meeting of the ‘Cathedral Men’s LIFE Group’ at which Enniskillen Presbyterian minister, the Romanist pilgrimage loving Rev David Cupples, spoke earlier in the spring.

The double speak of the deceiver was evident when ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly spouted his weasel words in an effort to justify this disgraceful action.

The BBC reports that the emissary of Papal deceit said this slap in the face “was not about rejecting any memorial or the content of the memorial, but this particular memorial and its proposed location”.

There is a lot of Romish hand-wringing about the siting of the memorial and the St Michael’s Diocesan Trust gave the lame excuse of “health and safety”.

They said: “The sheer size of the memorial, taken together with the high volume of footfall on the public footpath in front of the [nearby] Clinton Centre, and the connected issues of access to the school at the side and rear of the building, would make the proposed location unsuitable from the point of view of the health and safety of the public.”

This is nothing but a fig leaf to cover the true reasons for their objections – the fact that Rome hates anything it sees as being connected to Protestantism, which is why it uses ecumenism to lure in gullible Protestants and thus damage the Protestant people.

They are like the enemies of King David, himself a type of Christ, who said of the like in Psalm 5:9: “For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.”

Men may say nice things but “by their fruits ye shall know them” and they are certainly bringing forth rotten fruit.

However, Rome has set itself squarely against God and we know, or ought to know, what to expect from her; it is the conduct of weak ecumenical so-called Protestants that is the real issue at play here.

We spoke of ministers remaining silent last week in reference to ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll, and once more we are presented with another “dumb dog”, as Isaiah 56 puts it, in the shape of Dean Kenneth Hall.

Has he expressed his disgust with Rome’s insult to Protestants? Of course not, his tongue has been firmly cleaving to the roof of his mouth for fear of offending his Papal pal, not that ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly is too worried about causing offence in the other direction.

This just further demonstrates the one way nature of ecumenism, the Protestant dupes give and the Romanists take.

Unfortunately this is the result of failing to separate yourself from the heathen practices of others in your land.

Prior to the children of Israel going into Canaan, God warned them not to suffer many of the heathen tribes in the land to stay there and outlined the consequences of such compromise. We, of course, are not to employ the tactics used here, but the same principle applies that we are not to compromise ourselves when we are serving the one true God.

Deuteronomy 7:2-5: “And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them: Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly. But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.”

We are then informed in Judges chapter 1 repeatedly of how the tribes of Israel failed to cast out the heathen among them.

The consequences are told us in Judges 2:1-3: “And an angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you. And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this? Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.”

This is what’s happening in Ulster as we speak as ecumenists mingle with Rome.

We would implore Dean Kenneth Hall to come out publicly and castigate in no uncertain terms the conduct of the Roman Catholic Church and tell ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly their chummy days of ecumenism are over.

We would implore Dean Kenneth Hall to actually subscribe in spirit, and not just with his signature, to the 39 Articles of the Anglican faith.

We would implore Dean Kenneth Hall to repent of his ecumenical compromise, call Rome out for what she is and to shepherd his flock as God would have a minister to do.

1 Samuel 2:30: “…for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”
