Romanist ‘saint’ beloved by foolish Protestants revealed to be sex abuser

2 Timothy 3:2-5: “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

The Roman Catholic Church has been beset by an uncountable number of revolting sexual scandals throughout the world over the past number of years.

That most sickening of crimes of child abuse has been almost endemic within Romanism, with floods of victims having come forward across the world and some of the most senior priests in the whole rotten system implicated either as child abusers or as having covered up for child abusers.

So vast has the number of reported victims been that numerous Roman Catholic dioceses, particularly in the USA, have filed for bankruptcy in an effort to avoid being liable for enormous sums of compensation to those subjected to the vile abuse of their supposed spiritual leaders.

Those developments, ongoing in numerous areas at present, just succeed in adding financial bankruptcy to the moral and spiritual bankruptcy cancers already rife within the Roman Catholic church.

Of course, Rome may try to avoid court judgments ordering them to pay out money to the victims of the abusers they harboured, in many cases, for decades, but they cannot run from God.

2 Corinthians 5:10 reminds us of this solemn fact: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”

The actions of so many of Rome’s priests are indisputably foul and wicked and what a dreadful judgment they are heading for.

Given not only the proliferation of such priests, but also the proliferation of compromising foolish Protestant ministers all too keen to cosy up with Rome, there is always very much the risk that they can end up embarrassing themselves by fawning over a Romanist who later turns out to have some rather unseemly skeleton in his closet.

And so it would appear to be the case for those who chose to fawn over, promote and recommend Jean Vanier (pictured, top), an ardent Romanist who founded the L’Arche Community in France, an organisation set up to assist people with learning disabilities.

Now certainly we do not condemn the idea of helping those with any form of disability.

However, Jean Vanier was a committed Romanist and remained wedded to the hellish, Christ-denying doctrines of Rome to his dying day.

It was revealed just a few weeks ago in a report by the L’Arche organisation, reported on by the Washington Post, that “Vanier had coercive sexual relationships with six women during his lifetime that left the women hurt and in need of psychological therapy for years”.

The evidence appears to be rather damning, so much so that L’Arche’s executive director in the USA, Tina Bovermann, said in a letter that “we stand today on the side of those who have been harmed ”

Further damning revelations also “found that Vanier was aware of inappropriate sexual conduct by his mentor, the late Rev. Thomas Philippe, possibly as early as the 1950s,” the Washington Post report continued.

“Neither Philippe nor Vanier had sexual relationships with the adults with disabilities whom L’Arche serves, the group said.”

It was revealed that the allegations came to light last April, a month before Vanier’s death.

The article states that at that time “leaders of L’Arche hired a consulting firm to investigate two women’s reports that Vanier had been involved in inappropriate relationships with them.

“During the investigation, the consultants — who interviewed more than 30 people — learned of four more women who alleged harmful sexual relationships with Vanier.

“The women did not know one another or know about each other’s allegations, the report stated. The abuse took place between 1970 and 2005. Some of the women were single, some were married, and at least one had taken a religious vow of celibacy.”

These are the actions of a man who was described before his death last year as a “living saint” by Alpha Course leader and Church of England minister Nicky Gumbel, who said it was “an utter privilege” to have met him.

Stuart Bothwell (pictured, below), lead pastor at Lagan Valley Vineyard Church in Lisburn, County Antrim, took to twitter last year to praise him to high heaven after his death, saying: “We lost a giant today. May we never lose his vision.”

Lead pastor at Causeway Coast Vineyard, Neil Young is far from averse to quoting Jean Vanier on his Twitter page.

Regular readers may remember our previous article highlighting the Presbyterian Herald, the magazine of the Presbyterian Church, dedicating an issue to this man.

No doubt they will rather wish now that they hadn’t.

Vanier used his spiritual authority, as these women saw it, to hold sway over them, the report stated.

L’Arche’s own report says: “The relationships … are described as emotionally abusive and characterised by significant imbalances of power, whereby the alleged victims felt deprived of their free will and so the sexual activity was coerced or took place under coercive conditions.

“One victim said Vanier told her: ‘This is not us, this is Mary and Jesus. You are chosen, you are special, this is secret’.”

What an evil, blasphemous pretext this man used to engage in such vile behaviour.

Does Nicky Gumbel still consider this man a “saint”?

Does Stuart Bothwell still consider him a “giant “?

Will Neil Young continue to tweet his quotes, thus recommending him to his followers?

Will the Presbyterian Herald apologise for dedicating an issue to a man who sexually abused women?

Let us not forget, too, that Vanier was a Romanist, denying the all-sufficient death of Christ on Calvary.

We should not need reminding that Rome rejects the Bible, rejects Jesus Christ and rejects the means of salvation outlined in God’s Word.

Dear reader, please don’t do that yourself, come to Christ for salvation if you are not yet saved.

Don’t place stock in the men of this world, but rather look to Jesus for salvation.

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.”

Sodomite ‘Pride’ group persists with parade despite coronavirus pandemic

Proverbs 1:29-31: “For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.”

As the spread of Covid-19, the deadly strain of coronavirus, accelerates throughout the world, all sorts of events and social gatherings have been cancelled.

Be it St Patrick’s Day events, major sporting occasions, church services or big and popular events particular to Northern Ireland like the Balmoral Show and all Orange Order marches and band parades, the nation has come to a virtual standstill.

One might have hoped that, amid the numerous onerous restrictions which are sensibly being placed on all of our movements and socialising, the enemies of God would at least forget about their God defiance for this year.

However, not so for the campaigners in the pro-sodomy lobby in the Mid-Ulster area as they have signalled their determination to parade their godlessness in front of everyone this year.

We have previously highlighted the wicked, planned Mid Ulster Pride parade which was due to be held on Saturday, 13 June.

Now, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organisers of this parade have indicated that it will no longer take place on that date.

Great news, the true child of God might say.

However, undeterred in their desire to defy God, Mid Ulster Pride has announced they will hold their parade of rebellion instead on Saturday, 19 September.

They are stubborn in their desire to not only break God’s law but to also rub it in the noses of all and sundry.

Of course, given the warnings that the effects of this pandemic could be felt for anything up to 18 months, it is rather presumptuous to reorganise it for six months time and just further evidence of the pride at work in this LGBT movement.

The good news is that another event, which Mid Ulster Pride had previously titled ‘Blessed are the Queer’, before receiving negative publicity for this outrageous episode in blasphemy, has been cancelled.

It had been renamed to ‘No Fear in Love’ after the initial title had met with public condemnation and was due to be addressed by two ordained Presbyterian ‘ministers’, Rev Laurence Kirkpatrick and ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban (pictured, below).

The launch event of the Mid Ulster Pride group back in January was met with a number of protests from different groups.

However, like the fools referred to in the passage at the top of this article, those celebrating sin have “despised reproof” as they “did not choose the fear of the Lord”.

How sad it is to see that even a global pandemic which has claimed the lives of more than 10,000 people is not enough to cause this sodomite group, whose vice-Chair, lest we forget, is a Church of Ireland minister named Rev Andrew Rawding (pictured, top), to cancel altogether their celebration of sin.

Proverbs 8:13 warns that such pride and evil ways are hated by the Lord.

It says: “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.”

Let us demonstrate the fear of the Lord so clearly lacking in those involved with Mid Ulster Pride and let us be steadfast in our standing up for His truth in this increasingly wicked day.

World’s governments prepare for coronavirus – but are you prepared for eternity?

Romans 8:22: “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.”

Essentially the only story making the news headlines around the world at present is the spread of the deadly coronavirus strain known as Covid-19, a flu-like disease which has left thousands dead across the globe.

Various security measures are being put in place in an effort to minimise the spread of the disease, including cancelling large gatherings, self-isolating if you feel any of the symptoms associated with this modern-day plague, washing hands regularly, disinfecting surfaces and so on and so forth.

It is only sensible in the face of a highly contagious deadly disease for millions around the world to take various measures in an effort to reduce the harm it causes.

However, what precautions are being taken by millions around the world to deal with the effects of that much, much deadlier plague called sin?

It has been said by various experts that many people may experience extremely mild symptoms of coronavirus and it will do them next to no harm, even without any form of treatment from a doctor.

However, the disease of sin has a 100% mortality rate for any person who fails to call upon the Great Physician for a cure.

Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

We are all under the curse of sin through our first father, Adam, and without coming to God for salvation we will suffer a dreadful lost eternity in hell.

What has been so evident by its absence from any of our political leaders, including, as far as we can see, the DUP, is any reference to God.

Nobody has stated that we ought to look to God for His mercy and for His hand to be upon us.

Nobody has called for a national day of prayer to petition the Almighty that He might be pleased to wondrously move and curb the spread of this dreadful disease, not just here in the United Kingdom but throughout the globe.

Nobody has reminded the people who are looking to them for guidance that, at a time when we are all being confronted with our own mortality and the precarious nature of life, that they need to be ready to die.

What a dreadful indictment of the state of our country that our political leaders ignore the Almighty God of heaven in our time of need and at a time when so many are fearful of the future.

Often people can be accused of only turning to God when they face difficulties, but our country isn’t even seeking God’s face when confronted by such a crisis.

We are all most likely familiar with the following verses and they seem very apt at this time.

2 Chronicles 7:13-14: “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 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.”

What we, as the people of God, can do is earnestly seek God’s face that He might move in mercy in our land.

We can also pray that God would even be glorified through this time and that many will turn to Him for salvation.

The pride of man has been exposed for all to see, even in the way that they yet refuse to turn to God for help and in the way our leaders fail to urge the general public to cry out to God for mercy.

A supposedly wonderfully civilised society has been built up in the west, but man has forgotten it is only of God we are able to enjoy these many benefits.

Indeed, our land repeatedly tempts God and provokes His wrath.

What wickedness is permitted and indeed celebrated in our country.

Sodomite marriage is now legal in Northern Ireland, our precious land so wonderfully blessed in times past by our Heavenly Father, and new sodomite ‘Pride’ parades continue to spring up throughout our country.

Babies can now legally be murdered in our country, indeed the health service is gearing up to be able to facilitate the slaughter of the unborn in the coming weeks.

How can God not be displeased as He looks down on our land?

And yet the UK still refuses to turn to God.

This was something the children of Israel were warned against when they were about to enter the promised land.

Deuteronomy 8:11-14,17-20: “Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth. But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.”

Even throughout the book of Judges we see the children of Israel repeatedly falling away from Christ, but at times of distress, and sometimes it was only after lengthy periods of distress that they thought to do so, they eventually turned to God for deliverance.

We have a prime example from the days before Gideon was called by God.

Judges 6:1,3-4,6: “And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord: and the Lord delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years. And so it was, when Israel had sown, that the Midianites came up, and the Amalekites, and the children of the east, even they came up against them; And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass. And Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites; and the children of Israel cried unto the Lord.”

Seven years of oppression it took for God’s chosen people to call upon Him.

Let not our land be struck by such dumbness when it comes to calling out to the Lord.

Let us even pray at this difficult time that God would be merciful to us and that through this dreadful time for so many, that people will consider their eternal destiny and will come to Christ for salvation.

2 Corinthians 6:2: “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

Romish compromise rewarded as Right Eejit John McDowell appointed Church of Ireland Archbishop

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.”

We have previously commented in other articles how it appears that the more compromised with Rome a clergyman appears to be, the more likely he is to be on course for the top, especially in the Church of Ireland.

So hand in hand is the Church of Ireland with the pagan perversion of true Christianity that is the Church of Rome that it is to be expected devoted ecumenists will be occupying the top roles.

And so it has proven as one promoter of Romish compromise has been replaced with another in the most senior post of the Church of Ireland.

Right Reverend (or Right Eejit) John McDowell (pictured, top), the current Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, has been appointed as the new Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, replacing Most Reverend (or Most Ecumenical) Richard Clarke (pictured, below).

The Rome compromising, Papal pandering, Apocrypha preaching dyed in the wool ecumenist has been rewarded for his clerical career of compromise by being elevated to this loftiest (and no doubt generously remunerated) of roles.

Let’s have a look at Right Eejit John McDowell’s rather inglorious CV.

He is bosom buddies with former Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher Joseph Duffy, a man who was found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”.

Despite that being the finding of a report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children as far back as 2010, Right Eejit John McDowell continues to be fast friends with this Romish deceiver.

In April 2018, he was a joint guest of honour with Bishop Joseph Duffy (pictured, below) in a Church of Ireland event in a congregation in County Monaghan.

Then, in June 2018, Right Eejit John McDowell was a guest of honour at the Romanist blasphemy of the mass, a mass held to celebrate 60 years in the priesthood of that same Bishop Joseph Duffy.

Apart from the obvious disregard he showed towards true religion and God by attending such a wretched event as the mass, he was also showing complete disregard to the victims of child abuse in the Clogher diocese who might have been spared such wicked treatment had Bishop Joseph Duffy not “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

Surely this alone is enough to preclude Right Eejit John McDowell from being elevated to this role?

Right Eejit John McDowell is also a past President of the Irish Council of Churches and was a signatory to a letter begging “that Antichrist” the Pope to visit Northern Ireland when he made his way to the Republic of Ireland in August 2018.

Right Eejit John McDowell was also in attendance in May 2018 when a service was held in the Church of Ireland in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh to celebrate a Jesuit priest in the process of being ‘sainted’ by the Pope.

Then in that same church, St Macartin’s Cathedral, in November 2018 Right Eejit John McDowell preached from the Apocrypha during a Remebrance Day service.

And the following month, in greeting the appointment of Larry Duffy as the new Romanist Bishop of Clogher, he said he was praying for his success.

All that was just in 2018!

Indeed, he added a deal of variation to his wilful rejection of God’s Word late last year as he was in attendance at a pro-LGBT event in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen and indeed closed the meeting “with a prayer of love for our queer brothers and sisters”.

So there you have it. This is the man who is now in charge of the Church of Ireland, the second largest allegedly Protestant denomination in Ireland.

Associating with Romanist priests who “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”, taking every opportunity he can to compromise with the evil false religion of Rome and caving into the campaign for the acceptance of sodomy in the church, this is the trail left by Right Eejit John McDowell.

Are you impressed?

Do you believe he ought to be a spiritual leader?

Do you want him to be your spiritual leader?

Do you believe God smiles upon Roght Eejit John McDowell as a very senior and very public proclaimed representative of Him?

We trust the answer to each question is very clear indeed and we trust that, if you are saved, you will “come out from among them and be ye separate” from the Church of Ireland.

If you are as yet unsaved, won’t you place your faith and trust in Christ, the one Who gave Himself on the cross at Calvary that we might be saved.

1 Peter 2:24-25: “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.”

Christ is a Bishop to be much admired and followed after, Right Eejit John McDowell is a bishop to be rejected.

Choose the gospel of Christ, not the false gospel of Right Eejit John McDowell and his ilk.

Paganism promoted again by Church of Ireland in County Armagh

2 Timothy 3:13: “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”

In May 2018, we highlighted the abominable and outrageous situation wherein a Church of Ireland ‘minister’ was revealed to be the leader of an organisation called the ‘Centre for Celtic Spirituality’ and was promoting and practising various pagan rituals.

This included holding events which ‘Rev’ Grace Clunie (pictured, top) described as “earthwalks”, with one such event held to mark the pagan festival of Beltane (or Bealtaine).

Curiously, the website on which she promoted such, with other recommendations including “creating an outdoor prayer shrine or befriending a tree to pray / meditate outdoors”, seems to have disappeared since we last wrote about it.

Sadly, the centre itself hasn’t disappeared.

And just three weeks ago, on Wednesday, 12 February a Church of Ireland parish centre in County Armagh was the venue for an event addressed by ‘Rev’ Grace Clunie entitled, ‘Celtic Spirituality and St Brigid’.

The ‘Jethro Centre’ in Lurgan played host to this celebration of paganism.

In our article almost two years ago we highlighted much of what is wrong with the Celtic Spirituality nonsense espoused by ‘Rev’ Grace Clunie and would invite you to read that article by clicking here.

The possibly fictional character of St Brigid is nothing but the subject of pagan folklore hijacked by Rome and given a Chriatian gloss (a particular skill of Rome’s).

Saint Brigid is widely recognised as being a pagan goddess transformed by Rome into one of their ‘saints’.

So why would a Church of Ireland ‘minister’ want to speak in such a manner about a pagan deity turned Papist saint?

Furthermore, why would the Church of Ireland, supposedly a Christian, not pagan or Papist (though paganism and Popery are pretty similar) church, tolerate one of its ‘ministers’ speaking about a pagan deity turned Papist saint?

One likely reason is that the Church of Ireland doesn’t particularly care what goes on under its banner or by those who collect their wages from them and live in their properties.

To see a clear example of this, one must only look at the disgraceful case of Rev Andrew Rawding, Church of Ireland minister in the Coalisland and Stewartstown areas of County Tyrone.

Not only does he appear to be striving to make himself the patron saint of the sodomite movement by attending every ‘Pride’ parade he can find and by taking up the role of vice-Chairman of the utterly ungodly Mid-Ulster Pride grouping, but he has hosted at least one of its meetings in his own house.

Well, we should say he has hosted at least one of its meetings in the rectory provided to him by the Church of Ireland which, unless it is unlike virtually every other Church of Ireland rectory in the country, is provided to him rent or mortgage free.

What does the Church of Ireland do about this? They can’t have not heard about his antics, given he has done his utmost to ensure he has received maximum publicity for his stance in defying God.

Indeed, we know for a fact this was brought directly to the attention of the recently retired Archbishop of Armagh, Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke (pictured, below), the most senior figure in the Church of Ireland.

What did he do about it? Nothing.

Indeed, ‘Rev’ Grace Clunie’s promotion of paganism is carried out within just a few miles of Armagh city, the site of Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke’s episcopal seat.

Job 11:14 gives us sound guidance as to what we should do when we are confronted by sin, be it our own or that under our responsibility.

It says: “If iniquity be in thine hand, put it far away, and let not wickedness dwell in thy tabernacles.”

It is within the power of the Archbishop of Armagh, or was when these outrageous situations presented themselves, to do something about and refuse to let it dwell in the tabernacles of his church.

However, he has very clearly failed to do so, an action (or inaction) which is reprehensible.

This event at the Jethro Centre was promoted by what is called the ‘Community Outreach Group’, according to the Roman Catholic parish bulletin for Lurgan.

The website for the Jethro Centre states this of the Community Outreach Group: “The Community Outreach Group, which comes under the umbrella of SPCA, was formed in 2004 as a result of an initiative by the Rev Dr Maurice Elliott, a former rector of Shankill Parish, and is a partnership between the churches of Shankill Parish, St Peter’s Parish and St Paul’s Parish.”

St Peter’s and St Paul’s are both Roman Catholic churches, so this is an overtly ecumenical group.

Rev Dr Maurice Elliott (pictured, below), referred to in the quote above, is the Director of the Theological Institute of the Church of Ireland, meaning he is in charge of the training of aspiring ministers within that denomination.

Given his clear commitment to mingling with Romanism, it would appear highly unlikely he is a satisfactory individual to entrust with training men whose chief purpose ought to be the fearless preaching of the full counsel of God, which would include denouncing false religions such as that of Rome.

This is but yet further evidence of the weakness of the Church of Ireland in these days of apostasy and departure from God’s Word.

Dear Christian, be wary of allowing yourself to fall under the influence of such dangerous events as this, which mere attendance at will have the effect of damaging your walk with Christ and His cause in our land.

Romans 12:1-2: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Bangor Church of Ireland holds ‘celebration of LGBTQ inclusion’

Much of the world’s news bulletins are currently being dominated with news of the spread of the coronavirus.

More than 60,000 people have been reported as infected with the disease and over 1,500 have lost their lives.

Such is the danger and fear caused by this disease that rigorous quarantine procedures have been put in place in an effort to curb the spread of the disease.

Sadly, no such precautions are being put in place in many areas of the professing church today to prevent the spread of a deadly virus which is infecting the minds and souls of so many.

That is the bizarre and utterly unscriptural concept that the various violations of God’s established order which make up the LGBTQ acronym and movement are somehow pleasing to God or welcomed by Him.

Never worry that the Bible repeatedly condemns these sins, those involved in this campaign to affirm all forms of wickedness are listening to their own notions rather than God’s Word.

Proverbs 14:12 sums it up rather succinctly. It says: “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

We are all sinful and when we rely on our own wisdom we go astray, and there can be no doubt that such notions as those within the LGBTQ movement are of man’s own wisdom.

And such exaltation of man was on show just a few weeks ago as a Church of Ireland congregation in the Bangor area of County Down held what was titled a “celebration of LGBTQ inclusion”.

It took place in St Gall’s Parish Church, Carnalea, on the Crawfordsburn Road in Bangor.

This wicked event, which celebrated rebellion against God while claiming to be of God, took place on 28 January.

It would appear that the main organiser of this particular event was a Mary Gilfillan, who unscripturally holds office within the church (1 Timothy 2:12).

She is a member of the Select Vestry which runs the church, holding the role of People’s Churchwarden.

In an article about the event she has written for the church’s website, she outlines the various nonsense activities going on, including bringing in a storyteller and an artist, while screening a video about a woman who apparently chose her “LGBTQ daughter over the evangelical church”.

At the top of the article, this Mary Gilfillan states that in September 2019 “our Select Vestry decided to take up an invitation to register with Changing Attitude Ireland”.

For those who haven’t heard of Changing Attitude Ireland, it is a pro-LGBTQ organisation within the Church of Ireland.

This event was their celebration of taking up this membership.

Every single member of the Select Vestry of St Gall’s Church of Ireland, Carnalea, ought to be ashamed of themselves.

The membership is made up of minister, Canon Michael Parker (pictured, above), Christopher Houston, the aforementioned Mary Gilfillan, Brian Waters, William Tennis, Desi Sykes, Noel McKeown, Derrick Conn, Pauline Smyth, Lynne Davison, James Hanna, Gary Ballentine, Janis Dunn, Jim Noble, Bertie Thompson and Angie Orr.

These people and their organisation’s attitude may be changing, but God’s Word is not.

Hebrews 13:8 reminds us of this as it says: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

St Gall’s Carnalea certainly is showing some gall to be seeking to overturn God’s Word and is most certainly acting very carnally.

Of course, a pro-sodomy event in a church would not be quite the same were it not attended by Rev Andrew Rawding (pictured, top), who seems desperate to make himself the patron saint of the sodomite movement.

Accompanied by members of the Mid Ulster Pride group, of which he is the vice-chairman, he was in the midst of it and very excited to share photos of this abominable event online, as you can see, below.

While true saints of God will rightly grieve over such an event taking place, let us take comfort from the knowledge that God is not mocked.

And let us also take comfort from the fact that God can and does overturn the wisdom of men.

1 Corinthians 1:19-20 says: “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”

Even though the sodomite movement appears to be in the ascendancy at present and is certainly gaining ground within what passes for professing Christendom in many places today, we know that God remains sovereign over all things.

We also know that God is able to save the souls of any who attended or supported this horrendous event.

Salvation is available to those who identify themselves under the LGBTQ umbrella if they but repent of their sins and turn their back on the wicked lifestyle they have chosen to lead.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

God has saved the “effeminate” and “abusers of themselves with mankind” and He can do it again.

Let us pray that God will move mightily in Ulster once again, put to flight the enemies of the gospel and wondrously save many thousands of people in our land.

Two years of God’s blessing and guidance – ‘Protestant Revival’ celebrates its birthday!

Psalm 115:1: “Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.”

It is hard to believe we have been operating this page now for two full years.

In that time, we believe the Lord has blessed this witness greatly.

We say that not just because of the incredible reach and number of views we have received, not just because of the many messages of support we have received from godly individuals, not just because it has prompted the wrath of those who hate the gospel or those who do their best to pollute or cheapen it, but because we can feel God guiding and directing us as we take up this (at times) onerous task.

We believe it is of God that this page has came into existence to provide a voice of protest against the ongoing, persistent and deepening apostasy and ecumenical compromise in our land.

There is, sadly, a great dearth of individuals who are willing to speak out volubly and uncompromisingly against the shameful goings-on in so many quarters that pass for clerical conduct and practices.

We are thankful, first and foremost, to God for His help and guidance and presence with us over these past two years.

There have been times when the level of abuse we have received has been difficult to handle, and indeed has sometimes come from surprising sources, from people of whom we had expected better, but God has always been beside us, guiding as we strive to find the words to speak for Him (and oftentimes telling us to hold our tongue).

We also want to thank all those who have shown their support in any way, whether it be by their kind messages, their ‘liking’ and ‘sharing’ of our posts, their notifying us privately of any events or comments they believe ought to be highlighted in an article, or their support in any other way.

What we would ask any individual reading this with a burden for the gospel and for earnestly contending for the faith is that you would please continue to ‘like’ and ‘share’ as regularly as possible on our Facebook page please.

Due to changes in the way Facebook operates in the past nine months or so we have had to work harder to try to get the message out as Facebook seeks to push users into paying to promote their content. 

Thankfully this happened only after our page had built up a significant following and has not hurt our views, indeed they have continued to grow despite this, but we are keen to make the most of every avenue by which we can spread the message further and would be very grateful for your continued help in this.

Indeed, we can see in this even God’s hand upon us as he providentially allowed the page to build up a profile before Facebook’s interventions.

And we thank every single individual who has taken the time to read our page, whether they despised or rejected what was written or not. We just trust a seed has been planted in their hearts that may bear fruit in times to come.

We embarked on this page really not knowing what to expect but simply burdened by a desire to highlight and challenge the outrageous apostasy and cheapening of God’s Word in so many quarters today.

Some of those responsible can’t help but try to come back at us, some of them unleash their minions to do it for them (whilst quietly, systematically going through comments abusing us and ‘liking’ them) and some try to pretend they don’t see it.

However, we take tremendous comfort in the vast amount of people who have seen it, something which has frankly amazed us.

There have been views in somewhere in the region of 130 countries and a further 15 to 20 territories.

The bulk of our views are in the UK, USA, Ireland, Canada and Australia, but we have regular numbers of views in Uganda, South Africa, Germany, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Spain, Norway, Sweden, France and Kenya.

We also have sporadic views in the likes of Saudi Arabia, a nation which militantly despises the gospel, Tanzania, India, China, Brazil, Russia and some tiny and far flung places such as Tonga, Fiji, Curačao, Lesotho, Guatemala, American Samoa, Mozambique, Puerto Rico and Haiti.

It is far beyond anything we could have envisaged or hoped for and we thank and praise God He has used this page to reach the ends of the earth with the gospel message and the message of earnest contention for the faith.

Many of our articles have notched up views into the thousands, with our most viewed article having, at present, been viewed more than 6,000 times, which is truly incredible.

What we have discovered is the sad fact that the apostasy in our land is worse than we thought, we have learned of movements and links between churches we didn’t know existed, and we have been perplexed by how few people seem to care.

So few seem to have any interest in what it is to live a sanctified life, so few seem to care that the Roman Catholic Church is ushering untold millions down the road to hell, so few seem to care that the foul charismatic deceits are taking over in so many places.

However, before we start to sound like Elijah at a low ebb and lest any think we are paraphrasing him and saying “we, even we only, are left”, we also are encouraged by the numbers who have supported us.

We have had messages from those prompted to separation by this page, those emboldened to take their stand for Christ and those who are heartened to see a voice raised against the rank apostasy and ecumenical compromise so prevalent in our land.

There is still a remnant in Ulster determined to walk in the old ways.

Indeed, we have seen encouraging signs of late, and while this may be a day of small things, we believe God is beginning to work again in our land.

The voice of protest, so muted in Ulster in recent years, is beginning to be raised again, we are hearing stories of souls being saved (and not by taking a booklet at an SU gathering) and we feel God’s presence more fully than in days past.

Could there be a revival about to sweep this way? Let us pray earnestly to that end, commit ourselves to a holy and sanctified life and do everything we can to spread God’s Word.

Let us declare unashamedly the gospel of Christ, of His shed blood and how salvation can only be received through it.

Jesus saves, His blood cleanses, His Spirit quickens and His mercy endureth forever.

Let us serve Him in spirit and in truth and let us ever yearn to do more for Him and live more faithfully for Him.

Philippians 3:7-10: “But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death”.
