Malachi 3:15: “And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.”
This is a verse we quoted when veteran Church of Ireland ecumenical cleric Canon David Skuce became Chancellor David Skuce, promoted by that old Romish compromiser the Right Eejit John McDowell, Bishop of Clogher.
What exactly it means for David Skuce’s lofty title now he has moved off to Donegal in the Diocese of Derry and Raphoe we are not entirely sure, but we believed that verse was apt for him and we feel it is equally apt now for Peter Lynas, another who has seen his Romish compromise rewarded by professional elevation, though both may seek to claim it is vocational elevation.
For Peter Lynas, a man whose actions are so synonymous with rank compromise with Romanism that he meritoriously received the moniker of ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, has been promoted to one of the most senior roles in the Evangelical Alliance.
He was already the Evangelical Alliance Director in Northern Ireland but now he is occupying the same position over the whole of the United Kingdom.
It would certainly appear that religious compromise and ecumenical betrayal of your Protestant heritage is a sure way to the top in many allegedly Chrustian organisations.
Among Peter Lynas’ most transparently God defying actions was his criticism of any who opposed supposed Christians running down to Dublin to meet “that Antichrist”, the Pope, his eulogising of ecumenical evangelist Billy Graham and his describing of a Romanist monk and God-defying ‘Protestant’ ecumenists as “incredible company”.
And he also decried any who would have the temerity to challenge him for his God-defiance in compromising with the hellish teachings and practices of Popery as being guilty of harbouring “residual bigotry”.
There are plenty more instances of his demonstrating his utter unsuitability for having any type of spiritual oversight over anyone, such as suggesting that churches introduce “trans” accessible toilets, and you can see some more of them by clicking here.
It shows something is very much out of place with so many who claim to be serving God when they are happy to be represented by such a character.
Did Jesus mingle with false religion? Did He condemn those who came to Him by faith alone? Did He describe as “incredible company” those who teach a false gospel of works-based righteousness?
The answer to all of these is a clear and resounding “no”.
Jesus dined with sinners and spoke with those practising false religion, but He didn’t encourage them on in their sin.
When Jesus spoke with the Samaritan woman at the well, He didn’t sugar coat things with her, He made it clear her current relationship was sinful (see John 4:16-18).
Jesus then made it clear to her that her religion was nothing but a confused, mongrel mess of a religion.
John 4:22-24: “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
Rome cannot worship God in spirit and in truth, for it blasphemes the Holy Spirit and is built on a lie, yet Peter Lynas is delighted for professing Christians to cower before the leader of that devilish system.
The religion referred to by Christ is that same mongrel mess created after the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel as detailed in 2 Kings 17:25-29,32-33, which says: “And so it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they feared not the Lord: therefore the Lord sent lions among them, which slew some of them. Wherefore they spake to the king of Assyria, saying, The nations which thou hast removed, and placed in the cities of Samaria, know not the manner of the God of the land: therefore he hath sent lions among them, and, behold, they slay them, because they know not the manner of the God of the land. Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land. Then one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria came and dwelt in Beth-el, and taught them how they should fear the Lord. Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt. So they feared the Lord, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them priests of the high places, which sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places. They feared the Lord, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence.”
The descendants of these ungodly forefathers then tried to disrupt the work of rebuilding the temple, doing so under the banner of being co-religionists with the true Jews.
Ezra 4:1-2: “Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the Lord God of Israel; Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esar-haddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.”
The Jewish leaders were wise to these ecumenical advances, unlike many foolish Protestants today, and give us a fine example of separation from religious error.
Note the Scriptures call such characters “the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin”.
When their ecumenical advances are rejected, their true colours quickly shine through.
Ezra 4:3-5 says: “But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the Lord God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us. Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.”
So it is with Rome, we must not fellowship or work alongside false religion, but Peter Lynas throws himself in headlong with Rome.
Jesus never once told people they were saved by their works, but rather by their faith.
Mark 10:51-52 says: “And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.”
Luke 7:50 says: “And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.”
Rome teaches we are saved by our works and by fulfilling its sacraments, and indeed pronounces its curse on any who teach salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone.
This is despite Ephesians 2:8-9, which 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.”
So why does the supposedly ‘Evangelical’ Alliance leader Peter Lynas not speak out against Rome, but rather call characters involved in it “incredible company”?
Did Christ proclaim that the false teachers of His day were “incredible company”?
This is what He said in Matthew 23:13: “But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.”
He continued in verse 33, saying: “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”
Jesus wasn’t mincing His words, was He?
Any true follower of Jesus, and you will know them by their works, will refuse to mingle with false religion, will refuse to praise those who deny the truth of the gospel and will unashamedly speak out against religious error.
As Jesus pointed out, this is a matter of heaven or hell, a matter of life or death.
Those following false religion, such as those dear souls within the Roman Catholic Church, are having the door to heaven effectively bolted in front of them by their false teachers, who, Christ warns, are themselves in grave peril.
He asks them, “how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”
Peter Lynas continually cosies up with a church whose priests shut up the doors of heaven to their adherents and goes so far as to condemn those who point out that this is unscriptural as bigots.
Do not be deceived into following his example, regardless of the lofty position he currently occupies.
If you are not saved, ask yourself the same question posed by Jesus around 2,000 years ago – “how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”
There is but one way – through repentance of sins and believing in Christ for salvation.
Jesus says in Mark 1:15: “repent ye, and believe the gospel”.
Acts 4:12 says: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
We must be saved – won’t you to come to Christ for salvation even today?
John 6:37: “… him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
