Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
Four allegedly Protestant ministers have preached at Roman Catholic mass services during the Clonard Monastery Novena on Belfast’s Falls Road.
That’s right, these four individuals gave their endorsement of that “blasphemous fable and dangerous deceit”, as the Church of Ireland’s 39 Articles describes it.
The Westminster Confession of Faith which the Presbyterian Church allegedly holds to, says “the popish sacrifice of the mass (as they call it) is most abominably injurious to Christ’s one, only sacrifice, the alone propitiation for all the sins of His elect.”
The Bible says in Hebrews 9:28 that “Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many”, not that He was to be sacrificed over and over again, which is the purpose of the wretched mass.
But here we have four supposedly Protestant ministers giving credence to that disgraceful act of Christ-rejection so exalted by Rome.
The four allegedly Protestant ministers betraying their glorious heritage are ‘Rev’ Tracey McRoberts (pictured, above), ‘minister’ of St Matthew’s Church of Ireland on the Shankill Road in Belfast, Presbyterian ‘minister’ ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban, who acts as the church’s chaplain at Queen’s University, Rev Johnston McMaster (pictured, below), Methodist minister and professor in the Irish School of Ecumenics and Rev John Alderdice, another Methodist minister.
Rev John Alderdice is also Director of Ministry at Edgehill Theological College, the training school for aspiring Methodist ministers in Northern Ireland.
Rev John Alderdice is an individual who has came to the attention of ‘Protestant Revival’ in the past.
Firstly, he is an ecumenical canon in Down Church of Ireland Cathedral in Downpatrick, being installed on the same night as Rome loving Church of Ireland rector Canon Mark Harvey and Romanist Benedictine monk ‘Brother’ Eric Loisel.
Secondly, he is a member of the Board of Governors at Methodist College in Belfast, known colloquially as Methody. He is one of five Methodist ministers appointed by the Methodist Conference to serve in that capacity.
The school is planning to introduce a transgender uniform and we posed the question as to whether or not those five Methodist ministers would stand up against the catering for such wickedness in the school bearing their church’s name.
It didn’t take long for us to get an answer.
After a reader highlighted our post on Twitter, it was quickly mocked by Rev John Alderdice, ironically saying “fame at last”, with a host of other God-defiers such as ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas and Biblical creation denier Glen Mitchell also joining in to congratulate him on being featured on the page.
Rather bizarrely, at that time, an individual who appears to be called Jim Deeds, perhaps trying to impress the other mockers with his credentials, claimed to have made it on to ‘Protestant Revival’, pictured with arch-ecumenist and Presbyterian minister Rev Steve Stockman.
The fact we have never featured a photograph of Rev Steve Stockman appears to be irrelevant to him. It is a very strange thing to be a wannabe heretic.
However, we digress.
God-defiant attitude clearly demonstrated, Rev John Alderdice was proud to be a preacher at a novena service in Clonard Monastery. The novena was held last month but his involvement has only just came to our attention.
The entire service is still available to view on the Clonard Monastery website.
And anyone who chooses to do so will see Rev John Alderdice happily sitting throughout the entire mass service, watching on as the priest blasphemously lifts the wafer above his head and claims Jesus is truly present in the wafer and in the wine.
Rev John Alderdice is pictured second from left in the image at the top of the article as the wafer is lifted up by the priest.
Rev John Alderdice also happily sits watching on as numerous prayers to Mary and praising Mary are offered up.
Here is an example of such: “We thank you loving father for giving us Mary the mother of your son to be our mother of perpetual help. We are grateful for all the favours we have received through her intercession. We pray that those past favours may inspire us to greater confidence in your loving mercy and to seek the aid of our mother of perpetual help. Amen.”
What a dreadful, evil, Christ-denying, Bible-rejecting prayer to utter. And what a wretched thing it is for any minister who is supposed to stand for the true gospel of Jesus Christ to sit by and allow for such blasphemy to take place.
Mary is not our advocate or intercessor, we have just one advocate with the Father and that is Jesus Christ.
1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.
Does Rev John Alderdice (pictured, above) believe that to be the case? Does he believe there is merit in offering prayer to Mary? If he believes prayer to Mary is blasphemous, does he think it is much more polite to allow Romanists to act in such a disgraceful way than to speak out against it and take a stand for Christ?
All four ministers who took part in this dreadful event were present for the blasphemous offering of the mass and the accompanying veneration of Mary, a wholly unscriptural practice.
The claim is that they practice such ecumenical betrayal in the name of “peace”, but there can be no peace with Rome until Rome makes peace with God.
This peace is nothing but a pretence. Did the children of Israel gain God’s commendation for compromising with His enemies? Of course they didn’t. Did Jesus call a truce with the false teachers of His day, the Pharisees? Of course He didn’t.
Each minister ought to be ashamed of themselves.
Of course, they won’t.
Their attitude will be similar to that of the false prophets in Jeremiah’s day.
Jeremiah 6:14-15 says: “They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.”
‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban (pictured, below, preaching at the novena), ‘Rev’ Tracey McRoberts, Rev Johnston McMaster and Rev John Alderdice have all chosen to reject their Protestant heritage and give credence to the lies of Rome.
Dear reader, please don’t be taken in by the ecumenical duplicity which is rife in our churches in this day and generation.
Let us speak out against the lies of Rome and against the folly of those who cuddle up with Rome’s deceits.
And let us never be afraid to challenge those who bring dishonour to the cause of Christ.
2 Timothy 4:2-4: “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.”
