‘LGBT service’ in Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church gets approval of homosexual who brought legal action against Asher’s Bakery

Last weekend, we at ‘Protestant Revival’ revealed the shocking ‘LGBT service’ held by All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church and their minister Rev Chris Hudson (pictured, above) on Sunday past.

In a staggering exhibition of defiance to God, the church sought to honour those who are living at open and brazen variance with God’s Word.

Following the service, the church put up a facebook post bragging about its disgraceful activity, which we have placed below.

It attracted a distressingly high number of ‘likes’ from other facebook users, with a total of 139 people or organisations indicating their approval when we last checked.

And there was definitely a few interesting characters expressing their support for such defiance of God.

Unsurprisingly, there was a ‘like’ from 1st Dunmurry Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, the ‘minister’ of which is ‘Rev’ Linda Ballard, who vowed prior to her ordination to base her ‘ministry’ “around gender issues”.

Then there was a ‘like’ from Lesley Macaulay, a woman whom we described back in June as “the previously obscure but suddenly high profile businesswoman (according to the Belfast Telegraph)” when she voiced loudly and repeatedly her objection to the Presbyterian Church, of which she was a member at the time, deciding to limit full communion to heterosexuals and barring the baptism of children in the care of homosexuals.

And then, most intriguingly of all, the presence of a ‘like’ on the facebook post by Gareth Lee, the sodomite who initially kicked up a fuss and pursued legal action against the Christian Asher’s Bakery.

It was Gareth Lee (pictured, below) who placed the order in Asher’s Bakery for what became known as the “gay cake”.

This was a cake he requested from the bakery, which he admitted himself had previously served him quite obligingly, bearing the slogan, ‘Support Gay Marriage’ and emblazoned with the name of a sodomite grouping of which Gareth Lee is a member.

To ice such a message would have gone against the Christian owners’ beliefs, the McArthur family. We are warned in Scripture not to wish evil-doers well in their efforts.

2 John 1:10-11 says: “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

The order was initially taken by another member of staff who was unsure how to react in the situation before Daniel McArthur, the manager, told Gareth Lee they were not able to fulfil the order as it went against their Christian convictions and refunded him.

Unhappy, Gareth Lee took his complaint to the (In)Equality Commission, the Deputy Chief Commissioner of which is a Presbyterian’minister’, the ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll (1 Timothy 2:12), who pursued the Christian McArthur family through the courts.

Disgracefully, the court found they had discriminated against Gareth Lee and ordered them to pay him compensation. Asher’s contested the decision and the matter now sits with the UK Supreme Court, with a final verdict expected later this year.

And it was this individual who indicated their approval for such a God-defying service as this.

Of course, it is no surprise to see a sodomite showing their support for such a church service, but it is very instructive as to the nature of the type of people the minister of that church chooses to align with and draws support from.

The minister of All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, Rev Chris Hudson, is on friendly terms with a character who has hounded through the courts the Christian owners of a bakery because they refuse to fall prostrate at the feet of the sodomite agenda.

It is like unto the dictatorial and blasphemous order from King Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon to bow down before a golden image he had made to worship it.

When the faithful servants of Christ, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to do so, they kindled the wrath of the heathen.

Daniel 3:12-13,16-19: “There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. Then they brought these men before the king. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.”

Notice that the “form of his visage was changed against” these three servants of the one true God when they took their stand.

That is the same for the child of God when they take their stand. People with whom you may have previously been on civil, even amiable terms, when confronted with your beliefs which you have taken from God’s Word, will often change their attitude towards you.

Gareth Lee had previously made purchases from Asher’s Bakery and there had never been a problem. But when they told him they would not bow down to the sodomite agenda, everything changed.

However, this man is pleased by the actions of Rev Chris Hudson, a man who would claim to be serving God.

It is vital that we point out that regardless of his courting of the sodomite agenda, Rev Chris Hudson is in grave error by simply being a part of the Non-Subscribing Church.

This is because that church denies the divinity of Christ, they say he is not God the Son, which means they deny salvation by the cleansing power of the blood of Christ.

That makes it a false church, but still one which is leading poor blinded sinners to hell.

David could gladly say in Psalm 26:4-5: “I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”

Rev Chris Hudson certainly cannot say that. Rather, he has actively sought them out and encouraged them to persist in their wicked ways, claiming that God is in approval of their vileness.

He is playing a very dangerous game indeed with his own soul, as he is warned in Isaiah 5:20.

It says: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

Dear reader, let us reject the “doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1) and instead embrace Christ in all His fullness.

If you are as yet unsaved, it is our prayer that God will speak to you, for it is He alone who can convict you of your sin and cause you to come unto him humbly and penitently for forgiveness.

Romans 10:9-10: “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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

‘Rev’ Liz Hughes latest Presbyterian ‘minister’ to back lesbian ‘Christian’ LGBT campaigner Vicky Beeching

The ‘Thought For The Day’ interlude on BBC Radio Ulster is an opportunity for the airing of fluffy, sentimental, quasi-religious ramblings by fluffy, sentimental, quasi-religious ramblers (which is probably as much as you can expect from such!).

While none at ‘Protestant Revival’ make a habit of listening to it, we were contacted by a reader drawing our attention to the drivel spouted by ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes (pictured, top), the recently retired Presbyterian ‘minister’ who provided the ‘Thought For The Day’ last Tuesday, 31st July. If you are so minded, you will be able to find it on the BBC iPlayer for the next few weeks.

In her soppy soliloquy, ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes becomes the second Presbyterian ‘minister’ of which we are aware who is endorsing the well-known Contemporary Christian Musician Vicky Beeching, who ‘came out’ as a lesbian four years ago.

‘Rev’ Liz Hughes, of course, joins the august company of the crowd-surfer Rev John Dickinson, minister in Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, who repeatedly tweeted his admiration of Vicky Beeching back in June.

Vicky Beeching, a self-avowed “LGBT campaigner” (pictorial evidence from her Twitter page, below), has written a book about her experiences as a “gay Christian”, and ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes was keen to use her moment in the sun to highlight this blasphemous claptrap.

Hundreds of thousands of people listen to BBC Radio Ulster and a supposed ‘minister’ of the gospel, rather than using this opportunity of sharing the gospel message of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone with the masses, decided to give air time to the blasphemous notions of man (or indeed, woman).

Of course, it should be noted that were anyone to actually share the truth of the gospel in their ‘Thought For The Day’ segment, they’d be highly unlikely to be asked to do so again.

In her opening remarks, ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes describes how, when Vicky Beeching was growing up, she had a “feeling that her natural orientation was a source of shame and confusion and embarrassment.”

Firstly, God says there is nothing natural about such an orientation. In fact, the Holy Spirit, moving through Paul, tells us in Romans 1:26-27: “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

So the Bible clearly says that this is “against nature” and that homosexual men are guilty of “leaving the natural use of the women”.

It really is clear cut, isn’t it?

Only not so for Vicky Beeching, and by implication, also for ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes.

Speaking in her ‘Thought For The Day’ segment, ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes said: “I found her book a most compelling read, not only because of her honesty with regard to her own personal journey, but also her setting out of a very different theological perspective and a very different understanding of the Bible texts.

“Although she does not share the traditional church viewpoint, she speaks out of a deep respect for the Scriptures.”

How can one whose life is devoted, as an LGBT campaigner, to advocating that which is utterly repugnant to God’s Word “speak out of a deep respect for the Scriptures”?

Vicky Beeching is as those described in Isaiah 29:13. It says: “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:”

This is a passage Jesus reiterated in Matthew 15:7-9: “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

The fact that Vicky Beeching offers a “very different theological perspective and a very different understanding of the Bible texts” is hardly surprising, seeing as she has consciously chosen to reject God’s Word as it plainly is.

One would imagine the text from Romans is one such text for which she would seek to offer “a very different understanding of”, but the message is crystal clear.

And is not the notion of “gay Christians” merely a commandment of men? It is most certainly not a commandment of God.

In fact, homosexuals are to be saved out of their sinful state, not encouraged to wallow in it.

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.”

“Abusers of themselves with mankind” were saved in the church in Corinth. Did they remain “abusers of themselves with mankind” once they were saved? No, the word “were” is inserted there, as the Holy Ghost says that such vileness was in the past tense for them.

Christians must publicly repudiate sin, such as homosexuality. Christians must ever seek to be more Christ-like, growing in grace, not to be “entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Galatians 5:1).

‘Rev’ Liz Hughes then refers to a story in the book of how Vicky Beeching and her grandfather, who had been a missionary, could not agree on her decision to ignore God’s Word.

However, it is recounted that Vicky Beeching remembered a quote from the hardly to be much admired Billy Graham, whose shameful compromise with Rome you can get a flavour of by clicking here.

He apparently said: “It is God’s job to judge, the Holy Spirit’s job to convict and my job to love”.

That comment is a very neat encapsulation of the deceptive “Judge not” brigade, who think nobody has a right to say anything is wrong.

This is, of course, a deliberate distortion of God’s message as we are always to use righteous judgment in setting what we see in front of us in the light of God’s Word.

John 7:24 says: “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.”

And what of God’s Law and His Judgments?

Psalm 19:7-11: “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.”

God’s commandments are pure? Is, in the light of God’s Word, homosexuality?

God’s judgments are “true and righteous altogether”.

How do we know God’s judgments and therefore “judge righteous judgment”? By reading His Word and abiding to it. We have clearly demonstrated that homosexuality is contrary to God’s Word, therefore it is right to say it is so and to endorse such vileness is to reject God.

‘Rev’ Liz Hughes says Vicky Beeching and her grandfather agree that he can still love her despite her “lifestyle” and of course that is quite proper. But to love someone does not mean to condone their sinful actions.

How many of us have family members who are unsaved? How many of us have friends who are not saved? There would be very few who do not. Does that mean we hate them or stop loving them? Of course not. But because we love someone doesn’t mean we tolerate their sin.

After all, John 3:16 tells us that “God so loved the world” that he sent Jesus to die on the cross. Does that mean God will admit anyone to heaven who doesn’t believe on Him? Of course not. Nahum 1:3 tells us the Lord “will not at all acquit the wicked”.

In case we think that our family member or friend isn’t “wicked”, we ought to bear in mind that we are all wicked. Jeremiah 17:9 says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Psalm 14:3 says: “…there is none that doeth good, no, not one”.

Of course, someone reading this who might seek to excuse the comments of ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes might say she is just repeating what is said in Vicky Beeching’s book.

However, she concludes with her own opinion, saying: “I do believe that we all need to listen to each other’s stories, and to learn from those who love Jesus deeply but have in the past felt cruelly excluded from the church family they want to love as well.”

The phrase “cruelly excluded” shows ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes’ position of moving towards LGBT affirmation in the church.

She believes it is cruel to exclude sodomites from full communion and believes it is proper to just ignore fundamental theological differences in the name of unity.

This is blasphemous nonsense.

We are to separate from such works of darkness and “touch not the unclean thing” (2 Corinthians 6:17).

And what of ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes herself?

Well, she has made a career out of rejection of God’s Word. After all, the Bible clearly states she ought not to hold the position she claims.

1 Timothy 2:12 clearly states this: “But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

She was one of the Presbyterian figures who signed an open letter in protest at the Presbyterian Church’s decision to prevent sodomite couples from having children in their care baptised and to limit full communion to heterosexuals.

Indeed, she came perilously close to being named Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland back in 2014, coming up just one vote short.

This was a source of regret for that old ecumenist, the Belfast Telegraph columnist and religious affairs correspondent, Alf McCreary, of whom you can read more by clicking here.

She was the ‘minister’ of Whitehouse Presbyterian Church in north Belfast for the last 17 years of her career, the church which Alf McCreary attends.

When she retired late last year, he lamented her failure to reach the top rung of the Presbyterian ladder thus: “This would have been an historic choice, but the Church had the opportunity to rectify this when she stood again the next year.

“Sadly, however, the members of the male-dominated Presbyteries did not elect her, much to the regret of many clergy and laity who felt that she was an ideal candidate.

“As well as all of this, the ‘Rev’ Hughes and Whitehouse were in the vanguard of ecumenism and mission in the Newtownabbey area.”

So ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes was at the forefront of compromise with the Papacy, she was in a position as a ‘minister’ which the Bible rejects, she wants full communion for sodomites and endorses the blasphemous notion of a “Christian” LGBT campaigner.

What a frightening combination of facts.

Isaiah 30:1: “Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord , that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:”

Belfast Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church holds ‘LGBT service’ to celebrate sodomite ‘Pride’

The depths of apostasy in our land of Ulster seem to continue to increase, as we are grieved to say that tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon a Belfast church will host an LGBT service.

All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church will host the service as it disgracefully joins in the sodomite ‘Pride’ celebrations in our capital city, which has been overrun with this festival of filth for the past week.

Called their ‘Pride Service’, All Souls has been advertising its service on facebook, a screenshot of which we have dropped in below.

As you can see, they have, despicably, placed a table cloth embellished with the rainbow flag synonymous with the sodomite movement on top of the altar. You can also see from the caption in the screenshot we have provided that they advertised their service in the ‘Pride Guide’, a manual listing all the vile events being held to celebrate sodomy.

How much more polluted and perverted can so-called worship be?

When the law was being outlined in Leviticus, all manner of sexual deviancy, including incest and bestiality, as well as sodomy, is outlawed.

After outlining all these grave sins, God explains why they must restrain themselves and the consequences of such sin.

Leviticus 18:24-28 says: “Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.”

The land “vomited” out sodomites and others who perverted God’s natural order, because it had been “defiled” by this sexual deviancy.

What judgment must be awaiting our own land when it is paraded around the streets of our capital as something praiseworthy, as something commendable and as something noble?

This is compounded when so-called Christians are joining in the honouring of that which God has said is abominable.

We must at this point clarify that, regardless of this service, the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church in general, not just All Souls, must be avoided by all as it is a Unitarian church, meaning it denies the precious doctrine of the Trinity.

This means they deny that Jesus is the Son of God and therefore they reject our only means of salvation, which is by faith in Christ.

However, it is most distressing and grotesquely offensive nonetheless to see such vileness offered up as supposed worship of God.

This All Souls church has already been featured on ‘Protestant Revival’ as it is the church which hosts annually a ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ service and its 2015 edition was attended by Presbyterian Church ‘minister’, the ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll.

She performed a reading at the service in her role as Deputy Chief Commissioner of the (In)Equality Commission, the organisation persecuting the Christian Asher’s Bakery.

You can also click here and here for more articles giving an indication of the calibre of ‘ministry’ she provides.

Back to All Souls and their ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ service.

The 2015 edition also saw the minister of that church, the Rev Chris Hudson (pictured, top), being presented with a ‘Transgender Champion of the Year’ award.

A presentation was also made that day to a woman who was soon to become the ‘Rev’ Linda Ballard (pictured, below), and she now ‘ministers’ in 1st Dunmurry Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church. At that time she had stated her “plans to form her ministry around gender issues”, a blasphemous notion and utterly unscriptural precept for any supposed ‘ministry’.

This is the character of the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church and therefore it is no shock to see them holding a blasphemous service such as they are planning for tomorrow.

However, it does not mean we ought to be silent about it or just ignore it or shake our head and move on.

We are clearly told in Ephesians 5:11 we are to take the opposite approach.

It says: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

We are to reprove them, or, as that word can also be rendered, ‘expose’ them.

Sin must be called out for what it is. We must not keep our peace when we see such departure from and rejection of God’s Word.

Dear reader, let us not be silent in this day of great departure and declension.

Let us be as Jeremiah, who could do nothing but tell forth what it was that God would have him to say. Pray that you will be emboldened and strengthened by the Holy Spirit to take your stand clearly for God.

Jeremiah 20:9: “Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.”

The reproach of his neighbours and countrymen was weighing heavily upon Jeremiah, but he could not contain himself, he could do nothing but speak God’s truth.

He was “weary with forbearing”, he had tired himself out with holding his tongue and he could hold it no longer.

Dear Christian, have we as the people of God not been holding our tongues for too long? Have we not been silent for too long in the face of sin when we should have spoken out? Have we not allowed the enemies of God to gain great ground without us so much as trying to hamper their way?

We as a Christian people are expected by God to “earnestly contend for the faith” (Jude v 3).

In this day of deepening apostasy and of rejection of God by all and sundry, let us not be afraid to speak out against such evil, and let us truly be a Protestant people once more.

DUP continues its downgrade by co-sponsoring drag queen event

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

Deuteronomy 22:5: “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

Towards the end of June, we at ‘Protestant Revival’ highlighted the distressing moves by DUP leader Arlene Foster which seemed to be geared towards placating various enemies of God.

First on her schedule of compromise was attending a Muslim religious festival (pictured, below), before she attended a GAA final in County Monaghan on a Sunday, an Irish republican organisation in which many of the clubs, stadia and trophies take their name from IRA terrorists.

And she concluded her whistlestop tour of compromise by speaking at an event celebrating the ‘contribution’ of LGBT people to Northern Irish society.

As we pointed out at that time, all this seemed to be a means of ingratiating herself with the murderers or murderer apologists of Sinn Fein with a view to getting their power-sharing government back up and running. Pleasing God, sadly, particularly for a party rooted in true Biblical Protestantism, did not seem to be high on their list of priorities.

Now we see further departure from the party’s evangelical roots as one of their MLAs (Member of the Legislative Assembly) acted as a co-sponsor to an event at Stormont (the would-be seat of power in Northern Ireland, were our Assembly functioning), entitled Alternative Queer Ulster.

It was being held as part of the ‘Pride’ week, a celebration of all manner of immorality encompassed within the LGBT+ umbrella.

Speaking at the event was an individual who goes by the name of Electra La C*** – a drag queen.

We don’t actually know what the final word of her name is, as both the Belfast NewsLetter and Belfast Telegraph opted to star it out, so we must assume it is a word not suitable for repetition.

That really says it all about this character, that their ‘stage name’ is so vulgar it cannot be reproduced in a newspaper.

Not only that, this drag queen notoriously wore a tiara dipped in HIV positive blood in a ‘Pride’ parade in Belfast two years ago.

However, the DUP’s Paula Bradley (pictured, top, with Arlene Foster) saw fit to subject our parliament buildings to such depravity.

Not only that, Paula Bradley also saw fit to put her name as a co-sponsor to the sodomite event ran by LGBT news outlet ‘Pink News’ at Stormont; the event which Arlene Foster addressed.

We must state that Paula Bradley, in a fairly recent Belfast Telegraph interview, said she was “not a practising Christian”, so she is not going against any publicly expressed belief.

And we must also clarify the policy surrounding sponsoring an event at Stormont to avoid the accusation of misleading anyone.

For an event to go ahead, three MLAs must sign up to the event. The first is the host, with two further co-sponsors adding their support. There must be cross-community backing for such events, so one nationalist and one unionist must support the staging of each event.

Paula Bradley was not the host, but would have been fully aware that this event was called Alternative Queer Ulster. She would also have been fully aware that such an event would be offensive to a great many DUP voters and a great many DUP members.

However, our concern is with the DUP’s tolerance of such vile events being given the endorsement of one of its elected representatives.

When questioned about the event by the NewsLetter, the DUP said that it was up to the host, Clare Bailey of the Green Party, to ensure the event would “comply fully with all Assembly policies”.

The event may have complied with Assembly policies, drag queens are not illegal after all, but the event certainly didn’t comply with God’s Word.

Their statement said: “DUP MLAs act as sponsor and co-sponsor to many different events held at Parliament Buildings.

“The Primary Sponsor for any event in Parliament Buildings is the person responsible for the event under the Assembly’s guidelines.

“Ms Bradley is one of the co-sponsors and as such was not privy to specific details, including participants. She is acting in good faith that the event will comply fully with all Assembly policies.”

The NewsLetter added the following: “The DUP was not withdrawing its sponsorship, the party added.”

So the DUP, which claimed Paula Bradley wasn’t fully aware of the type of characters attending the event, then says that, despite the utter depravity of this event having been clearly highlighted, confirmed it would sponsor this celebration of sin regardless.

What a disgraceful departure from the old days of the DUP, which campaigned to ‘Save Ulster From Sodomy’. Now it is sponsoring events supporting it!

How this demonstrates how we must stay close to God and His Word, for such situations can come about through nothing other than ignoring the commands of the Almighty.

In the verses at the top of our article, it is clearly demonstrated that a man wearing women’s clothing is an “abomination unto the Lord”.

Likewise, it is clearly demonstrated that people were created either male or female, there is no grey area in this.

And our bodies are to be used to glorify God, and that cannot be done when they are being used to carry out acts which are against God’s natural order.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

The DUP are playing a very dangerous game in provoking God in such a way.

They have definitely gone backward, as the children of Israel did in the days of Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 7:23-24: “But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.”

Let this not be fully said of the DUP.

There is still time for this party, once led by the great man of God that was Rev Ian Paisley, to roll back on its moves towards outright rejection of God and His Word.

However, the time is short, and the days are evil and the pressure will continue to build on them, from both within and without, to cave in to such grave and wicked sins.

What a wonderful promise, though, we are offered in God’s Word, that a heartfelt, earnest and truly penitent return to Him will reap great rewards.

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.”

Joint Anglican and Roman Catholic document seeking full unity under the Pope

The nefarious desire of the ‘Protestant’ heretics within Anglicanism to move into full communion with the deceitful Romanist system has been outlined in the latest agreed statement between the Anglican movement and the Roman Catholic Church.

It is the first statement issued by the third Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC), a body whose aim is to achieve full unity with Rome, including sharing in the Eucharist (or Mass) and having the Pope as the head.

It is jointly commissioned by both the Vatican and Canterbury.

We should not be at all surprised that the Vatican should agree to this, as it costs them nothing to reach the final destination the two churches have agreed on.

However, it is hard to fathom why the senior figures in the Anglican movement, led by the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Justin Welby (pictured, top), should want to hand over power over Anglicanism to the Pope (pictured, below).

Let us not forget that their own church still subscribes in name to the 39 Articles.

These include the very proper statement that the Mass is a “blasphemous fable” and a “dangerous deceit”, yet this Anglican commission is looking to share in the Mass with the Papacy.

Such traitors ought to be thrown out by the scruff of their neck from the Church of England, Church of Ireland, Episcopal Church of the USA and all other branches of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Instead, these are the figures in the top positions and perpetuating such a despicable state of affairs by appointing their own like to the highest positions as they become vacant.

We have read this ‘agreed statement’, as they have entitled it, and will reproduce just some of the content now (it extends to 77 pages of drivel, deceit and departure from any accepted standard of loyalty to God’s Word) for readers to digest.

It is truly a sickening document.

It says: “We do not yet, however, share partnership in the eucharist. What we as yet lack drives us on in search for deeper reconciliation and fuller unity at [all] levels of the Church. While we do not yet fully share in the eucharist, we are already in a real yet imperfect communion which impels us towards deeper and fuller reconciliation at [all] levels of the Church.

“We are pilgrims together walking on the way of penitence and renewal towards full communion.”

They then misapply Ephesians 4:1-3, which says: “I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Blasphemously applying this to seeking communion with evil, which the Roman Catholic system undoubtedly is, they conclude this God-defying document by saying: “These characteristics capture the necessary spirit of our ecumenical journey, and offer us a vision of how we are to continue walking together on the way towards full communion.”

This is exactly what this document says, and you can click here to take you to the page where you are able download the document and read it for yourself. You can do so by clicking on the final word of the first paragraph of the article.

Dear member of the Church of Ireland or any other part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, are you “walking together” with the Pope “on the way towards full communion”? Your church leaders say you are.

Are you a “fellow pilgrim” with the Romanists? Are you walking with them on the “way of penitence”? Let’s not forget that penitence in the Church of Rome includes all sorts of works based sacrifices, from mortifying your body to saying Hail Mary’s. Your church leaders say you are sharing that path of penitence.

Are you sharing in a “real communion” with the Papacy, the church which still to this very day teaches, in their communion service, known as the Mass, that they are sacrificing Christ again and again and again, and this despite the Bible clearly teaching His sacrifice at Calvary was once and for all? Your church leaders say you are.

Remember what Hebrews 10:10-12 says: “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 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”.

Do you, as a member of the Church of Ireland, Church of England or any other part of the Anglican Communion, believe you are travelling towards full communion with Rome, under the authority of the Pope? Your church leaders believe you are.

Do you want to travel towards full communion with Rome, under the authority of the Pope? If not, then surely you must speak out against this despicable betrayal of Biblical Protestantism, which is true Christianity.

If you are still unconvinced of the intentions of the leadership of the two churches, we will quote further from this document by ARCIC III, as it is known.

They say, in their introduction: “The goal of the Anglican – Roman Catholic dialogue, established in 1966, during the visit of Archbishop Michael Ramsey to Pope Paul VI, has been successively reiterated by subsequent Popes and Archbishops of Canterbury in the series of Common Declarations issued at important meetings together.

“This goal has been succinctly expressed as ‘the restoration of complete communion in faith and sacramental life and visible unity and full ecclesial communion’.”

That is the goal of all ecumenical conduct throughout the Church of Ireland, Church of England or elsewhere in the Anglican Communion with the Church of Rome.

Any time there is an ecumenical service with the local priest popping in to say a prayer; any time your minister drops into the local chapel for one of their services; any time a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity event is held; any time a Women’s World Day of Prayer event is held in your church, or your friend’s church, or your neighbour’s church, THAT is the goal.

We will repeat their goal and give it the same prominence as it is given in the ARCIC document by reproducing it in the same style as they have done. It is on page 10 of the document, if you want to see it for yourself.

Their goal, by this ecumenical dialogue, is:

“the restoration of complete communion in faith and sacramental life
and
visible unity and full ecclesial communion”

Again, you can view that document by clicking this link and downloading the document there.

Here is another quote from the document.

“Popes and Archbishops of Canterbury have successively recommitted Anglicans and Catholics to the goal of unity, with increasing clarity and frankness”.

There you go, dear member or attendee of the Church of Ireland, Church of England or elsewhere in the Anglican Communion. The leadership has continually, for 50 years, been “recommitting” you, as an Anglican, to “the goal of unity” and they are getting more brazen about it.

This whole document is brazen, it is an overtly God rejecting statement from start to finish, and it has been done in your name, if you attend any church within Anglicanism.

The Reformation remains an event despised by Rome, for it seized many millions from its control and undermined its deceitful, utterly unscriptural gospel of works, thus depriving it of an incredible amount of money it had been successfully extorting from the public as they purported that financial generosity to the church would help ease their passage into heaven.

And so it is telling that, in an act of arrogance and as a slap in the face to all Reformed Protestants who hold the Word of God and its precious gospel of salvation by faith alone so dear, they concluded the work on their agreed statement in Erfurt in Germany.

Erfurt, of course, was where Martin Luther studied and was ordained as an Augustinian friar in the Church of Rome.

For supposed Protestants to negotiate what is in reality a surrender to the Church of Rome in a city synonymous with the story of the man seen to have kickstarted the glorious Protestant Reformation compounds their betrayal of the goodly heritage that so many men and women fought and died for over the past 500 years.

Also highlighting their betrayal is the pre-eminence given to the Pope, “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, within this agreed statement.

Referring to the “Bishop of Rome”, they say: “In this, as in previous ARCIC Agreed Statements, the Pope, variously referred to as the Supreme Pontiff, the Servant of the Servants of God, the Holy Father, and other historic titles, is normally styled Bishop of Rome.

“It is because the particular church of Rome is where both Saints Peter and Paul laboured and were martyred, that the See of Rome and its Bishop, enjoy a pre-eminent authority and honour in the universal Church.”

Of course, Peter never went to Rome and indeed wrote at least one of his epistles from Babylon, many thousands of miles from Rome.

And any acceptance of any type of authority of the Pope of Rome is utterly repugnant to any true believer due to the blasphemous titles he takes upon himself.

One of the names ascribed to him in their own documents is that of “Supreme Pontiff”, with ‘pontiff’ meaning ‘bridge’.

He is saying he is a bridge between man and God, when that role belongs solely to our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 2:5 says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

Any fellowship with the corrupt system of Rome is a betrayal of the Bible and must be resolutely fought against and opposed.

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

If you are a member of the Church of Ireland we would encourage you to express your disgust with this dreadful document to your minister and question him as to his view on the matter.

If you are friends with anyone within the church, we would certainly advise you to share this with them so they can be fully aware of the betrayal of Christ the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is carrying out in your name (click here for an indication of his rejection of the gospel).

Please remember, dear Christian, we are to be faithful to Christ and not to any particular church.

Separation from error, and this is indeed grave error, is a fundamental tenet of Christianity.

2 Corinthians 6:17: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

Quakers in Ireland give their backing to sodomite ‘marriage’

The apostasy in our land is deepening day by day and this has been shouted out loud and clear by the Quakers in Ireland, who have voted to hold ‘gay weddings’ in their meeting houses.

At their yearly meeting in County Limerick in the Republic of Ireland they decided to make the disgraceful, God-defying step of holding ‘gay marriage’ ceremonies in their churches.

Quakers Ireland covers the entirety of Ireland, both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

While gay marriage remains illegal in Northern Ireland, and we ought to earnestly pray this will remain the case, it means Quaker meetings in the Republic of Ireland will hold sodomite ‘wedding’ ceremonies, in absolute defiance of God’s own established order.

For our readers’ information, the Ulster division of the Quakers, or the Religious Society of Friends, boasts the largest number of congregations of any in Ireland.

In addition to two fellowships in Belfast, there are also gatherings in two further cities, Londonderry and Lisburn, as well as Coleraine. The rest, bar one near Dungannon in County Tyrone, are all in County Armagh.

The issue of homosexuality in the church is one we have had to address on numerous occasions of late, as so-called Christians and so-called Christian churches continue to compromise with this evil world on the sin of sodomy.

As we have previously stated, the Bible is utterly clear on the matter.

We will remind readers what God’s Word has to say.

Leviticus 18:22: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

Romans 1:22-27: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

Genesis 2:24: “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

At absolutely no point in God’s Word are same-sex relationships endorsed or even tolerated, yet even so-called Christians today, demonstrating the distressing apostasy of our age, are actively supporting such flagrant rejection of God.

The Quakers, in their statement on the matter, made no referral to what they see as being the justification for such a retrograde step, nor did they offer any Biblical support for their decision.

That is entirely unsurprising, as there is none, and apostates tend not to be able to use much by way of Scripture to support their stance.

Instead, all they said was that “If any Quaker Meetings, solemnisers or members do not wish to participate in meetings for worship for same-sex marriages as a matter of conscience, there is no obligation to do so.”

They said this was “to facilitate the range of views held within the society”.

And they concluded their shoddy statement by saying: “Quakers have a diversity of views on marriage between people of the same sex taking place in a meeting for worship because of the range of their theological, spiritual and biblical approaches but we are united through love for one another.”

This really is a dreadfully sad statement from the Quakers in Ireland.

There are issues on which we may disagree as Christians, but the issue of gay marriage is truly a fundamental point of faith.

God has already pronounced his curse on such a sin, having destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, and he has called it in His Word an “abomination”, “unseemly” and “against nature”.

For such an action to be carried out by the Quakers, regardless of whether individual members have the right to opt out of such events, is truly a separation matter and we would encourage anyone involved in that movement to withdraw themselves.

If you know anyone involved with the Quakers, we would ask you to share this with them and urge them to separate themselves.

1 Timothy 4:1: “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.”

2 Corinthians 6:17: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”

Enniskillen Church of Ireland’s Rev Kenneth Hall vows to continue compromise with Rome

The Dean of Clogher, Rev Kenneth Hall, has announced his desire to continue to betray his church’s Protestant heritage by compromising with Rome.

Rev Kenneth Hall’s appalling ecumenical conduct has previously been highlighted on ‘Protestant Revival’, as he previously held a service in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen celebrating the ‘Blessed’ John Sullivan, a man who converted to Catholicism, became a Jesuit priest and is now in the process of being made a saint by the Pope.

Not only that, we highlighted his close association with ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly, the Papist mouthpiece for Rome as they refused permission for a memorial to be placed on their land to the Protestant victims of an IRA bomb planted on Roman Catholic Church property as they gathered in Enniskillen on Remembrance Sunday.

Rev Kenneth Hall remained silent at that time, making no criticism of the Roman Catholic Church or his ecumenical pal, ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly, with whom he is pictured, below.

However, Rev Kenneth Hall has not remained silent in expressing his desire to continue down the ecumenical road he is on.

In fact, in an excerpt of a sermon preached last month on his church’s website, he has stated his ambition to continue to “work tirelessly and endlessly” with “clergy from all denominations”, including, of course, Rome.

Addressing the fact that many Protestants, especially in an area like County Fermanagh which suffered so horrendously at the hands of the Roman Catholic IRA, might be unhappy with his conduct, Rev Kenneth Hall simply says that he and other betrayers of Protestantism, which is Biblical Christianity, “are perfectly capable of defending our faith”.

It is a bald assertion with no evidence to back it up, no demonstration of how he has done so and no Biblical warrant disclosed for mingling with the manifold blasphemies of Rome.

There is, however, crystal clear warrant from Scripture for steering well clear of the corrupt system of Rome.

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

2 Corinthians 6:14-17 says: “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”.

Religious separation from propagators of error, which Rome undoubtedly is, with its lie of purgatory, prayer to Mary and saints, blasphemy of the Mass and corrupt gospel of salvation by works, to name a few, is absolutely necessary.

However, Rev Kenneth Hall repeatedly and consistently refuses to do this and indeed is making a virtue of his rejection of the Bible.

Not only has he made a virtue of it, he has made a career from it as well, as he has himself attested.

Rev Kenneth Hall says: “Everywhere I have moved to since my clerical life began twenty years ago in Cookstown through my days in Dungannon, Coalisland and Stewartstown and now here in Enniskillen, I have sought to do likewise. My message has not changed…”

From the outset of his ministry, Rev Kenneth Hall says he has sought to engage in ecumenical compromise with Rome.

The root of his ministry is in disobedience to God’s Word, therefore the fruit cannot but be corrupt.

Matthew 7:15-20 says: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

Like many ecumenists, Rev Kenneth Hall uses the pretext of what is euphemistically called ‘The Troubles’ in Northern Ireland to justify his conduct.

He says: “We want bitterness and hatred and the gun and the bomb removed for ever.”

So do all right thinking people, but to think that compromising with the Papacy can bring lasting peace is a nonsense.

The architects of murder, the IRA, are now represented in the highest levels of political life in Northern Ireland through their political wing and cheerleaders to this day, Sinn Fein.

The gun and the bomb were only largely put down the back of the sofa by republicans because they got forgiveness without repentance.

Hundreds of murderous Romanists were released from prison, where they still ought to be, as part of the political deal the likes of Rev Kenneth Hall championed, and they still refuse to apologise for the murder campaign they unleashed on the Protestants of Ulster.

That is not peace, regardless of what Rev Kenneth Hall likes to say.

We are reminded of the false prophets in the time of Jeremiah who claimed all was well.

Jeremiah 6:13-14: “…and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.”

While Rev Kenneth Hall renews his ecumenical vows, let us draw near to Christ and pray earnestly that ecumenists and apostates scattered through our land are removed from their pulpits or else gloriously converted by Christ.

Let us have the same vow as that faithful servant of God, Joshua, when he said in Joshua 24:15: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
