The well known emissary of papal deceit, ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy (pictured, above), was guest of honour on Tuesday night (13th November) in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church.
The Passionist priest was in attendance at a meeting of the Causeway Coast Peace Group, which sows its ecumenical seeds of compromise on the north coast of Northern Ireland.
Ballycastle Presbyterian Church is a habitual venue for all manner of disgraceful ecumenical activity, and regularly plays host to the outrageous ‘Ballycastle Prayer Partnership’, a monthly gathering of attendees of the Presbyterian, Church of Ireland and Romanist churches in the town.
Not only that, but in 2014 the minister of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church, Rev John Stanbridge, invited in to his church the Papist ‘Focolare Movement’, a group which functions to spread the worship of Mary.
The Service of Prayer for Christian Unity was held as part of the ‘Focolare Movement’s’ Mariapolis.
Mariapolis means ‘city of Mary’, and wherever such events are held that place becomes a ‘city of Mary’ for that time, meaning Rev John Stanbridge (pictured, below) blasphemously made his church part of the ‘city of Mary’.
Given his constant rampant ecumenism and rebellion against God, it should be no surprise to see Rev John Stanbridge facilitating the appearance of a Papist in the church he has the charge over.
However, that makes it no less a grave offence against God and that makes it no less worthy of condemnation.
We have referred to this verse on numerous occasions but that’s because the instruction contained in Ephesians 5:11 remains totally relevant to all professing believers today.
It says: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
We are to condemn and criticise, or reprove, the unfruitful works of darkness, which Rome is, with its blasphemous false gospel of works-based salvation and its manifold other blasphemies.
However, that warning clearly means nothing to Rev John Stanbridge, who repeatedly invites Papists to participate in and lead meetings there in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church.
Lest he should read this or any other apologists for ecumenical compromise and opt to nitpick, we are aware and have stated above the meeting is being held under the auspices of the Causeway Coast Peace Group, an overtly ecumenical grouping.
However, Rev John Stanbridge would be well within his rights to prevent this outrageous meeting taking place, though of course, for obvious reasons, that wasn’t going to happen.
We consider it necessary to clarify who organised the meeting itself, given the pedantry of the ‘Rev’ Nancy Cubitt, so-called ‘minister’ of Bushmills Presbyterian Church, which is not far from Ballycastle.
‘Rev’ Nancy Cubitt contacted us after we highlighted the church she has the charge over hosted an event where attendees went through a smutty study guide of the book of Ruth, put together by the utterly ungodly Corrymeela Community. Splitting hairs, she pointed out that ‘her’ church only hosted the meeting, rather than holding it. You can see the article and the relevant comments beneath it by clicking here.
Bushmills Presbyterian Church was the venue for that meeting. Who held the meeting? Causeway Coast Peace Group.
The Causeway Coast Peace Group also held a disgraceful ecumenical event in Ballintoy Parish Church, another nearby village, back in June, where Papist Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin was preaching.
So this is the calibre of grouping Rev John Stanbridge of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church and indeed ‘Rev’ Nancy Cubitt of Bushmills Presbyterian Church are bringing in among them.
And ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy, a well known Papist and ecumenist, is the calibre of character Rev John Stanbridge of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church is happy to have spewing out his false gospel on the premises of the church for which he is responsible.
Rev John Stanbridge is guilty of failing to protect his church and indeed its inhabitants, or congregation, from the enemies of Christ.
He is emphatically failing to follow the example set by Nehemiah when he was leading the building of the walls of Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 4:6-9 says: “So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work. But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth, And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.”
No watch is being set to protect the attendees of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church, Bushmills Presbyterian Church or indeed Ballintoy Parish Church from the overt ecumenists in their pulpits and in the Causeway Coast Peace Group.
Ministers are to be watchmen but God has a fearsome warning for those who fail to fulfil that solemn duty.
Ezekiel 3:17-18 says: “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 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.”
Dear reader, don’t let your blood be required at the hand of a minister who is failing to warn you of the danger of engaging in conduct which meets with God’s condemnation.
Instead, follow His command to “come out from among them, and be ye separate” (2 Corinthians 6:17) and God promises He will receive you, and how much better it is to be accepted by God than to be accepted by man.
