Emmanuel leader Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson chooses ecumenical compromise over God

So there we have it, Emmanuel Church leader Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has chosen the praise and plaudits of men over faithfulness to Christ.

Despite us giving Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson ample opportunity to cancel his ecumenical booking with the apostate Ballymena Church Members Forum, it appears the meeting went ahead regardless.

We tried to reason with Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, knowing this page is monitored by his church, demonstrating through scripture the dangerous nature of the compromise he was carrying out, but he appears to be hardened in his desire to engage in ecumenical conduct, in direct contradiction to God’s Word.

As we pointed out in our previous article, rather than put a halt to his ecumenical activities, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is going deeper into ecumenical compromise, promoting an event in a Presbyterian Church which is on very friendly terms with the nearby Roman Catholic Church.

The event he is promoting is a prayer event, being organised by ’24-7 Prayer Ireland’, of which Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is a director.

The tagline for this event is: “A time for tribes and traditions to join together to seek his face in prayer and worship”.

What do they mean by “tribes and traditions”? If this includes those from the Roman Catholic Church, then how can they join in prayer and worship without ecumenical compromise? The answer, of course, is that they can’t.

As he continues down this road, it is certain that such prayers as will be offered up at that event next month will go no further than the ceiling of May Street Presbyterian Church, itself a hub of ecumenical deceit.

Zechariah 7:11-13 says: “But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the Lord of hosts. Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the Lord of hosts:”

If Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson will not hear the calls for faithfulness, then God will not hear him when he makes his petitions.

The works of Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s hands are unprofitable as he is using them to create a false Christ and as such, God has warned that this will prove to be to his own hurt.

Jeremiah 25:4-7: “And the Lord hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. They said, Turn ye again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the Lord hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever: And go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. Yet ye have not hearkened unto me, saith the Lord; that ye might provoke me to anger with the works of your hands to your own hurt.”

Worse still, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s actions will be to the hurt of many more than himself, as he leads his church down the broad road to destruction.

Lest anyone try to claim this is not the broad road to destruction, let us remind readers of his previous form.

In February, as part of the ecumenical talking shop in Belfast known as the ‘Four Corners Festival’, he addressed a meeting in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Donegall Street in that city (pictured, below). He then endorsed the ecumenical, anti-Christian, ritualistic Taizé form of worship at that same meeting.

Now he has held this meeting hosted by the Ballymena Church Members Forum, an ecumenical grouping which draws its membership from the Church of Ireland, the Presbyterian Church, the Methodist Church and the Roman Catholic Church.

This group has hosted meetings previously in the Roman Catholic Church and a Benedictine Monastery and each year hosts an ecumenical Good Friday walk.

Fellowship with Rome is a craven betrayal of true Christianity, it is as simple as that and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is quite clearly and emphatically engaging repeatedly in fellowship with Rome.

We also note that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson made no mention on his Twitter page regarding this meeting. Perhaps he didn’t want it broadly known to his followers what he was getting up to, or perhaps he hoped we at ‘Protestant Revival’ wouldn’t notice. However, God so ordained it that this work of darkness would be brought to light. As we are told in Numbers 32:23, “be sure your sin will find you out”.

We are calling on anyone associated with Emmanuel Church to separate themselves from it and we are calling on anyone who knows anyone associated with Emmanuel Church to share this with them and implore them to challenge him on his disgraceful actions and separate themselves from this fellowship.

We are living in perilous times where men come “having a form of godliness” and lead people from the truth.

2 Timothy 3 continues in verses 8-9: “Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.”

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s folly is being made manifest and we pray that his followers will separate themselves from his church and those like it and draw nearer to God.

Ten days ago we called on Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson to make the decision Joshua called on the children of Israel to make in Joshua 24:15 when he said “choose you this day whom ye will serve”.

That verse begins with the words: “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord” and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has unfortunately taken that viewpoint.

Please, dear reader, do not follow suit.

Former Church of Ireland Dean of Belfast John Mann glorying in his shame with ecumenical award

Jeremiah 6:15: “Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord.”

Philippians 3:18-19: For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”

It is a most grievous thing to God when we sin, but that sin is compounded still further when those who sin take pride in their iniquitous conduct, those who “were not at all ashamed” when they had committed abomination; those “whose glory is in their shame”.

And so it is with Very Reverend (Very Reprehensible!) John Mann, the former Church of Ireland Dean of Belfast, who led the ecumenical treachery which is synonymous with St Anne’s Cathedral in that city.

In our picture we can see him grinning proudly next to the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who had just awarded him the ‘Lambeth Cross’ for his ecumenical work in Belfast.

What a dreadful thing to glory in and a shameful thing to reward!

The award citation for Very Reprehensible John Mann reads: “The Lambeth Cross for Ecumenism, for courageous and visionary leadership which affirmed diversity, fostered healing and made Belfast Cathedral (St Anne’s) a place of welcome as a sacred civic space at the heart of a divided city.”

Very Reprehensible John Mann has done many great things in the eyes of sinful men, such as the Arch-apostate of Canterbury, but nowhere in his citation has he been praised for faithful preaching of God’s Word, earnestly contending for the faith or showing sinners the way to salvation.

These are the things that men who claim to be God’s servants are supposed to, but “by their fruits ye shall know them” and the fruit brought forth by Very Reprehensible John Mann is very loathsome indeed.

This betrayal of his Protestant heritage was no more evident than in July 2016 when he installed a Roman Catholic priest, a ‘Father’ Edward O’Donnell, as an ecumenical canon in St Anne’s Cathedral.

What an absolute disgrace!

He installed a Mary worshipping, prayers for the dead saying, Pope exalting, Purgatory believing, salvation by faith alone denying heretic to a position of authority and held him up to the congregation at St Anne’s and all within the Church of Ireland and the wider Anglican movement as an acceptable, nay admirable, figure, worthy of being listened to and in whose hands it was acceptable to place your spiritual welfare.

He also launched an ecumenical youth choir with students from a Protestant school, a Roman Catholic school and an integrated school.

You can be sure that the Roman Catholic pupils wouldn’t have been allowed near a so-called Protestant church were it feared they might be taught the truth of the gospel, rather than the pagan corruption of Rome.

And what Very Reprehensible John Mann has achieved through this is help set a generation of young people on their way to hell by bringing them in to sing at services where he is spewing out his filth and shame.

On numerous occasions throughout his epistles, the Apostle Paul said the phrase “I would not have you ignorant”, but Very Reprehensible John Mann fostered ignorance during his reign of terror and he and his followers have a fearsome price to pay.

Hosea 4:6-10″ My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame. They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity. And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings. For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the Lord.”

That is a powerful passage of God’s inspired Word (no doubt Very Reprehensible John Mann will add to his list of heresies by denying that it is inspired) and no doubt the fans of St Anne’s Cathedral will want to cover their ears when faced with this prophecy of Hosea.

Could there be more apt a phrase, “my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” for the state that apostate clerics such as Very Reprehensible John Mann leave their congregations in?

God has rejected him and there awaits the same fate for his followers (“there shall be, like people, like priest”).

What a fearsome position to be in! Please, dear reader, do not allow some apostate to take you to hell with them.

Just because Very Reprehensible John Mann appears to be doing well right now, do not forget that God’s judgement is awaiting him and one day he will find he can run no further from the God he has claimed to serve but has so blasphemously denied.

Ecclesiastes 8:11-13: “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him: But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.”

God’s judgement is coming on all who deny him and Nahum 1:3 tells us He “will not at all acquit the wicked”.

If you are involved with a church in the ecumenical movement, please separate yourself and, if you’re not saved, look to Christ, who alone can atone for sins.

1 John 1:9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

The clock is ticking for Emmanuel leader Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson

Five days ago we featured the latest step in the ecumenical compromise of Emmanuel leader Alain Emerson.

He will, this Sunday, address a meeting of the ecumenical Ballymena Church Members Forum in Ballymena Methodist Church.

The Ballymena Church Members Forum draws its membership from the Church of Ireland, Presbyterian Church, Methodist Church and Roman Catholic Church.

Previous meetings of this forum include meetings in the Roman Catholic Church and a day retreat to a Benedictine Monastery.

We said five days ago, and it is not our intention to repeat what we said then, that this is a meeting with the stamp of approval of Rome.

We also pointed out this was certainly not the first ecumenical compromise on Alain Emerson’s behalf, as he addressed a meeting in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast in February (pictured, below), which we previously featured and, to compound matters, he endorsed the anti-Christian, ritualistic and ecumenical worship style of Taizé at that meeting, which we also covered.

Five days ago, we advised Alain Emerson and his acolytes, for we are aware they are monitoring this page, that he had eight days in which to cancel this booking and, if he did so, we would be happy to write an item praising him for doing so.

We have been monitoring the situation and it appears he has no such plans to do so.

The Ballymena Church Members Forum continues to advertise this meeting this Sunday night, 22 April, and there is no indication from Alain Emerson himself that he plans to cancel this booking.

Indeed, Alain Emerson has further deepened his commitment to ecumenism, advertising on his Twitter page an event being held by ’24-7 Prayer Ireland’ in May.

It is being held in May Street Presbyterian Church in Belfast, which, we have discovered, is another den of ecumenical deceit.

In March it played host to a Women’s World Day of Prayer event, the danger of which we previously addressed, and in January the church celebrated the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, another event we previously warned against, by attending what they call their “annual” ‘Prayers Around The Cross’ service in St Malachy’s Roman Catholic Church on Alfred Street in Belfast.

According to May Street Presbyterian Church, it was a “most moving” candlelit service and thanks were extended to St Malachy’s for their “kind invitation” into the hub of iniquity.

At the 2017 service, May Street Presbyterian Church’s Clerk of Session Arthur Acheson performed a reading, so we know the senior office bearers in this church are fully behind this apostasy.

Once again, this demonstrates the type of fellowship Alain Emerson is keen to engage in and keen to persuade others to engage in as well.

There may be many who think we ought to remain silent and indeed think it is wrong to challenge Alain Emerson for his ecumenical treachery, but we are set a fine example by Paul as to what stance we should take with those whose actions serve to undermine the gospel of Christ.

Galatians 2:4-5 says: “And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.”

Paul refused to countenance untruths or corruptions of God’s Word for so much as an hour, and by the grace of God, neither will we.

Does Alain Emerson, the leader of a supposedly God exalting church, believe it is OK to mingle seed with Romanists and their chums? Does he believe it is God honouring to associate spiritually with those who would blaspheme against God in so many ways?

By encouraging others to follow him and setting a very poor example, Alain Emerson is guilty of the same crime as those priests in Malachi 2:8, of whom God said: “But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law.”

Alain Emerson is treading a dangerous line and needs to be very careful. God will not tolerate such behaviour.

Matthew 18:7: “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”

Are not these meetings Alain Emerson is leading and advertising an offence to God? They most assuredly are, and God promises a most fearsome punishment to those who bring these offences.

We renew our call once again to Alain Emerson only now he has three days to cancel this booking and again we would encourage readers to share this post to help challenge him on his continued failure to abide by Biblical standards.

Rev John Stanbridge brings Mary worship to Ballycastle Presbyterian Church

On Monday night, Protestantism continued its incremental sell-out to Romanism with the latest meeting of the Ballycastle Prayer Partnership.

Held in the Presbyterian Church in that overwhelmingly Roman Catholic seaside town in North Antrim, the main participants were members of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church, Church of St Patrick and St Brigid Roman Catholic Church and Holy Trinity Parish Church (Church of Ireland).

These three churches are part of the ecumenical grouping, Ballycastle Church Action, one of many such groups which held their blasphemous ecumenical walks on Good Friday, which we previously highlighted. A newsletter from the Church of Ireland in that town also advertised a Women’s World Day of Prayer event in St Patrick’s and St Brigid’s Roman Catholic Church. We have previously addressed the God-defying nature of the Women’s World Day of Prayer.

The so-called Protestant clergymen involved in the ecumenical sell-out are Rev John Stanbridge (Presbyterian, pictured, top) and Rev David Ferguson (Church of Ireland, pictured, below), both committed ecumenists.

In fact, according to a Ballycastle Church Action newsletter from 2013, its author expressed their excitement at seeing the pair ordained in their respective churches so they could lessen the load of running this anti-Biblical grouping which was then on the parish priest, a ‘Father’ Brian Daly.

The Ballycastle Prayer Partnership would appear to meet on a monthly basis or close to it, as we have, scanning back through the Roman Catholic parish bulletins, seen notices for the meetings in three of the four months thus far this year, all of which were in the Presbyterian Church premises.

If Rome is inviting you to attend a supposedly religious gathering, then you can be confident it’s not worth attending.

We have posed the question on numerous occasions previously on ‘Protestant Revival’, and it remains entirely relevant – to whom are the attendees at these gatherings praying?

Rome blasphemously teaches of prayer to Mary and saints, but the Bible teaches only of prayer to God, through Christ.

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

Hebrews 7:25: “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”

John 14:6: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

There is no other person we approach God through but His Son, who shed His precious blood at Calvary that we might be saved.

The idolatry of Mary worship practiced by Roman Catholics is expressly forbidden in the Bible.

Exodus 20:4-5 tells us to steer clear of idolatry. It says: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:”

This message is reiterated in Leviticus 26:1: “Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God.”

Exaltation of and prayer to Mary can be found absolutely nowhere in the Bible, so why does Ballycastle Presbyterian Church play host to a ‘prayer partnership’ with a church which teaches this blasphemy? And why does the Church of Ireland in Ballycastle also engage in it?

Is one person in the gathering praying to Mary and the person beside them praying to God? What confusion, and we can say with assurance that “God is not the author of confusion” (1 Corinthians 14:33).

Of course, their prayers are not getting beyond the ceiling of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church because God will not hear the prayers of such people as are gathered there.

Proverbs 28:9: “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.”

Those in attendance at this ‘prayer partnership’ have ignored God’s law, and that means every prayer offered up there on Monday night was rejected by God as an abomination.

Abominations are no new thing at Ballycastle Presbyterian Church, sadly.

In the summer of 2014, the Church played host to a Service of Prayer for Christian Unity as part of the Focolare Movement’s Mariapolis.

You may ask, what is that?

The Focolare Movement is a Roman Catholic movement whose chief goals are “to cooperate in the consolidation of unity in the Christian world, with individuals and groups, movements and associations; to contribute to full communion with Christians of different churches; and to work towards universal brother / sisterhood of all peoples, regardless of religious beliefs”.

An ecumenical nirvana then, where religious beliefs are left at the door.

Pope Francis, speaking in relation to the grouping, has said: “The Work of Mary, that everyone knows as the Focolare Movement…”

It is another method by which the Roman Catholic Church worships Mary and the Focolare Movement’s Mariapolis is a medium by which this is carried out. Mariapolis means “city of Mary” and wherever the event is held, that place becomes a “city of Mary”.

Therefore, by celebrating this God defying festival, Ballycastle Presbyterian Church made itself part of the “city of Mary”. What utter blasphemy!

That same meeting was also addressed by the Roman Catholic Bishop of Down and Connor, Noel Treanor, while a recorded video greeting was sent by the Church of Ireland Bishop of Connor, the Right Reverend (another Right Eejit in actual fact!) Alan Abernethy.

Ballycastle Presbyterian Church also, in 2015, played host to an ecumenical ‘Songs of Praise’ event celebrating the Moyle District Council, which was at that time absorbed into one of the new larger councils.

Among the utterly unacceptable participants was a representative from the Corrymeela Community, the home of Northern Irish ecumenism which is based in Ballycastle, and the closing prayer was performed by the already-mentioned ‘Father’ Brian Daly.

Rev John Stanbridge, and Rev David Ferguson will have to answer to God for their heresy and betrayal of His Word.

They are supposed to be proclaimers of God’s truth and ought to point the way to salvation but they cannot when they endorse Romanism, which is a pagan corruption.

Ezekiel 33:6: “But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”

Oh the blood on the hands of so many alleged religious leaders in Ballycastle.

Please, dear reader, don’t allow some apostate preacher to have your blood on their hands, but look to Christ and ask Him to cleanse you in His precious blood so that you might be saved.

1 Peter 1:18-19: “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”

Church of Ireland cleric Canon David Skuce cosies up with Rome and gets a promotion

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.”

It should come as no surprise in this wicked, fallen world that those who defy God are elevated to the highest positions in society, be it in political, social or ecclesiastical spheres.

And it should come as even less of a surprise that such elevation can be assumed by the beneficiaries to be an endorsement of their actions and by the uncritical onlookers to be a template to follow in order to obtain success (they “call the proud happy”).

Meanwhile, for the true child of God, sometimes it can be dispiriting to see those who set themselves at odds with God, as Asaph in Psalm 73, prosper.

Psalm 73:2-3 says: “But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.”

Of course, the happy outcome of that Psalm is Asaph’s realisation God is on the throne and rules over all, and their prosperity is but for a season.

Late last week the Church of Ireland Diocese of Clogher revealed it had promoted noted ecumenist Canon David Skuce (pictured, top), whom we have featured previously leading an ecumenical service from Boho Parish Church in West Fermanagh to Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in that same village on Good Friday. We had also previously reported the fact that he was the guest speaker in an ecumenical service in the Church of the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in the nearby village of Monea during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

And Canon David Skuce’s reward is that he is now a Chancellor (more like Chancer!).

He has been named as Chancellor of the Chapter of Clogher Cathedral and, while we are not overly familiar with the intricacies of the various ornate roles within Anglicanism, we understand this means he is the leading figure in the panel, or Chapter, of Clogher Cathedral, and is a leading adviser to the Bishop of Clogher, who granted him this promotion.

We will remind you at this juncture who the Bishop of Clogher is – the Right Eejit (though we believe he prefers Right Reverend) John McDowell, the man who described a Roman Catholic bishop as his “brother in Christ” and the man who just last Monday night was a joint guest of honour at a Church of Ireland service in County Monaghan with a Romanist bishop who was found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

Right Eejit John McDowell (pictured, above) has called it a “most senior appointment” so here we can see the setting up of “they that work wickedness”, which ecumenism undoubtedly is.

However, Chancer Canon David Skuce is not the only Rome loving apostate to be elevated this past week by Right Eejit John McDowell.

Canon Henry Blair (now there’s a surname which automatically prompts distrust!) Is to take the role of Prebend of Kilskeery, on the Tyrone / Fermanagh border, a position now vacated by Chancer Canon David Skuce. A Prebend, we understand, is an honorary Canonical role, and sees him also help Right Eejit John McDowell oversee the Clogher Chapter.

His promotion is, according to Right Eejit John McDowell, “an important recognition of his contribution”.

We investigated Canon Henry Blair’s contribution and discovered he is another noted ecumenist who loves nothing more than cuddling up with the paganism of Rome.

In fact, on Easter Sunday this year, he, as rector of Magheraculmoney Parish Church (also seemingly known as Ardess Parish Church) in County Fermanagh, held an outdoor dawn service at which there was invited several other clergymen, including a Papist.

The ecumenical so-called Protestants who joined with Canon Henry Blair (pictured, above) were Rev Paul Thompson (rector, grouped parishes of Derryvullen North and Castle Archdale Church of Ireland), Rev Steven Foster (minister, Irvinestown Methodist Church and Church Hill Methodist Church, Derrygonnelly, County Fermanagh) and Rev Philip Bryson (curate, Magheraculmoney Parish Church).

Also among the company was ‘Father’ Frank McManus, parish priest at St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church, Ederney, which is near Magheraculmoney Parish Church.

These are the ecclesiastical figures enjoying advancement, they are being “set up”, but God has warned He will also tear them down.

We return to Malachi and to the first verse of chapter 4, which says: “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.”

What a fearful judgement awaits those who reject God and His Word, and the architects of this ecumenical movement must repent or face this judgement.

The previous time we wrote concerning Chancer Canon David Skuce, the post received a phenomenal level of interest and was read by many in the heart of that small Protestant community in West Fermanagh.

There were those who showed their support for the stance we took and we commend them wholeheartedly, particularly as they bore reproach from the committed ecumenists who attacked them and us at ‘Protestant Revival’.

This page is not an attack on ecumenism for the sake of it, it is not due to a dislike for Roman Catholics, as those who would deliberately misrepresent us would try to claim. This is an effort, under God, to reprove the works of darkness and set the path of salvation clearly before all who read this page.

We reject Romanism totally and utterly because of the blasphemous titles the Pope takes on himself, because of the idolatry of worshipping Mary and saints, the blasphemy of the Mass, the lie of purgatory and because Rome rejects the one true way to salvation, which is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

That pagan system, which is a descendant of Babylonianism, cannot be accepted by any true child of God and any so-called Protestant cleric who endorses Romanism is guilty of the most awful of sins – bloodguiltiness of lost sinners.

Ezekiel 33:8 says: “When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”

Trying to find common ground is a futile exercise. 2 Corinthians 6:14 says: “what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”

If ecumenists are happy to stand idly by and let their neighbours go to hell so as to avoid offending them on earth, that blood is on their hands but by the grace of God we cannot be silent.

Indeed, we would have to raise serious questions of these ecumenists as to whether they are truly saved themselves. The diet of ‘God is love’ ecumenism, neglecting the fact God is also a God of vengeance who “will not at all acquit the wicked”, fed them by their pastors and willingly and gleefully imbibed has left them drunken and senseless to the danger they are in.

They are like those referred to in Job 12:25, where it says: “They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.”

And what is their end? We are told this in Isaiah 9:16: “For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.”

The broad road of ecumenism, always widening to let more on, leads to destruction.

If you are a supporter of the ecumenical movement, please consider your latter end (Deuteronomy 32:29).

The path of ecumenism leads to hell, the path of Romanism leads to hell, it is only the path of faithfulness to God’s Word which will lead to salvation and as 1 John 1:9 says: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Emmanuel leader Alain Emerson prepares to renew fellowship with Rome once again

In February, we highlighted the leader of the Emmanuel Church, a liberal gathering in the Craigavon area, Alain Emerson, addressing a meeting in a Roman Catholic church in Belfast as part of the annual ecumenical talking shop in the city called the ‘Four Corners Festival’.

Not only did he do that, but Alain Emerson also led the practising of a ritualistic, ecumenical anti-Christian form of worship called Taizé, something which we also covered.

Now we can reveal that Alain Emerson will be leading another ecumenical meeting involving Romanists, this time in Ballymena Methodist Church.

You may ask, how is that so? Well, it is a meeting organised by the Ballymena Church Members Forum, an ecumenical group which includes the Church of Ireland, Presbyterian Church, Methodist Church and Roman Catholic Church.

Previous meetings organised by the forum have been held in the Roman Catholic Church and indeed a meeting last year consisted of a day retreat to the Holy Cross Benedictine Monastery in Rostrevor, County Down.

They also jointly held an ecumenical Good Friday walk through the town, something we also highlighted on this page.

This gives you a flavour of the type of grouping Alain Emerson, the leader of a supposedly God exalting church, is endorsing by his presence.

As was the case with his appearance at St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast on 10th February, Alain Emerson (pictured, above, speaking in the chapel in February) is plugging a book he’s written, called ‘Luminous Dark’.

We will now repeat exactly what we said on this back in February: “It addresses the loss he suffered when his 23 year old wife sadly passed away, and, while we have not read the book, we certainly have no issue with the principle of anyone trying to help others coping with bereavement.

“What we do have issue with is a leader of what claims to be a God glorifying church giving legitimacy to the deceit of Rome.”

That is what we said and we reaffirm that statement in its entirety still today.

We ought not to associate ourselves with such anti-Christian practices as those within the Roman Catholic Church. Giving them any type of a hearing can lead to the situation God warned of in Deuteronomy 12:30.

It says: “Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.”

There is a risk of assimilating improper worship styles by doing such a thing (although if Alain Emerson practises Taizé worship then perhaps that’s a lost cause already) and that is why God was ordering His people to be separated from the heathens round about them and their pagan practices.

Many people may claim to serve the same God as we do but Jesus said “by their fruits ye shall know them”.

Look at the example of Jeshua and Zerubbabel in the book of Ezra, when they set about, under God’s will, to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem.

Those who claimed to serve the same God as the children of Israel returning from the captivity were looking to take part in the restoration work and claimed to serve the same God as them, but the Israelites’ leaders saw through their deceit and told them to stay away.

Their response after being knocked back showed their true colours and their evil fruit. It is the same with Romanists, apostates and ecumenists; they will be your friend and claim to serve the same God as the true child of God until you speak out against them, and then you’ll feel their fury. Rather than being reproached and repentant, they more often than not lash out.

This is how these false Christians and true ecumenists acted in Ezra 4:1-5: “Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the Lord God of Israel; Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esar-haddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither. But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the Lord God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us. Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.”

The Bible rightly points out they were Judah’s adversaries and Zerubbabel and Jeshua, and the other leaders, took the absolutely proper approach, declaring: “Ye have nothing to do with us.”

Any true child of God must have the same viewpoint. 2 Corinthians 6:17 says: “be ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing”.

The Ballymena Church Members Forum is most certainly an unclean thing and Alain Emerson cannot use the excuse that the meeting is being held in a so-called Protestant church to justify his actions. This is a meeting with the stamp of approval of Rome, a corrupt anti-Christian pagan system that knows only how to lead its poor deluded adherents to a lost eternity in hell.

If Alain Emerson were likely to come close to saying something like that or if there was even a hint of suspicion from any of the four churches involved in this forum that he might do so, never mind the Roman Catholic Church, then he would not have been invited anywhere near the place.

It grieves us to see such ecumenical corruption taking place and grieves us further still to receive the responses we had of many a number of weeks ago trying to justify Alain Emerson’s actions. There is no justification and, based on the tone of the comments we received in support of him, they appeared to be worshipping the creature more than the creator (Romans 1:25).

We will continue to highlight betrayal of true Biblical Christianity, which is true Protestantism, and to shine a light on the works of darkness.

This meeting is due to take place in eight days’ time on Sunday, 22 April and we are giving Alain Emerson eight days in which to cancel this booking.

If anyone reading this happens to know him or any of his connections or adherents at Emmanuel Church, please share this with him. We believe this page is being monitored closely by the most senior members of the Emmanuel Church, so we expect this will reach Alain Emerson.

We are absolutely prepared to write an item praising Alain Emerson for cancelling this meeting and refusing to touch “even the garment spotted by the flesh” (Jude v 23). However, if it goes ahead, we will not be silenced by the chorus of creature worshippers we were contacted by when we previously spoke out.

To Alain Emerson and all his adherents, be they Emmanuel Church attendees or part of the wider charismatic, easy-believism movement, we will leave you with the opening part of Joshua 24:15: “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve”.

To everyone reading this, that is a decision we all must make. We trust that all reading this will follow the words and grab hold the promise of Romans 10:9, 13, which say: “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 whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

‘Peace, peace, when there is no peace’ – lying Protestant clerics mark 20 years of having sold Ulster down the river

Jeremiah 6:10-14: “To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the Lord is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it. Therefore I am full of the fury of the Lord; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days. And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the Lord. For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; 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.”

Could there be a more accurate assessment of the situation in Ulster today than that phrase: “Peace, peace when there is no peace”?

When one looks at the shabby so-called peace we have in Northern Ireland, eulogised so fulsomely this week by the same old liars, deceivers, ecumenists and apostates who greeted the ‘Good Friday Agreement’ with such enthusiasm 20 years ago, one can only but see how much it would displease God when he looks upon this land of ours.

Any principles of justice were thrown out the window when that dreadful document was signed.

Murderers were let out of prison in the name of peace, and still 20 years on we have the likes of Tony Blair, a closet Romanist at the time, telling us it was absolutely necessary to release all the terrorists in order to achieve peace. What lies and nonsense!

We also have this week had ecumenical cheerleaders of clergymen this week hailing the agreement such as the Rev Harold Good (For Nothing!), whom we have previously discussed failing to contain his excitement at the planned visit of “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the Pope, to Ireland, and another old friend of this blog, Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke, who led his parishioners into the clutches of Rome to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

In Job’s disputings with his friends, he is asked two rhetorical questions by Bildad. Job 8:3 says: “Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?”

While Bildad and his companions were unduly harsh on Job, Bildad here posed very pertinent questions and ones which self-evidently require no answer. Of course God does not pervert justice.

However, this is an area in which there seems to be a specialising in our province, where murderers and would-be murderers, be they Romanists or so-called Protestants, are allowed back on the street long before their sentence has expired. It is a complete affront to justice.

Leaders are put in power to see justice done in their land, as is demonstrated for us in 1 Kings 10:9 when the Queen of Sheba addressed King Solomon. It says: “Blessed be the Lord thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the Lord loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.”

This is further emphasised in Romans 13:3. It says: “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.”

Our leaders were by no means a terror to evil works. In fact, those same killers released under the terms of the ‘Good Friday Agreement’ are now occupying many of the most important and influential positions in our land.

And we are told by apostate clerics such as Rev Harold Good For Nothing and Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke that this is a praiseworthy thing? As the Apostle Paul said, under the divine inspiration of the Holy Ghost, on many occasions in his letters: “God forbid”.

Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke (pictured, below on right of picture with Eamon Martin) did what all good little Romanist patsy Church of Ireland Bishops and Archbishops seem to do these days and issued a joint statement with his Papal counterpart, Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin.

In addition to the usual woolly nonsense one would expect from soppy ecumenists, Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke talks about “the Christian tradition we share” and mentions how he and his Romanist mate have a “sincere shared prayer” for peace.

Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke cannot share a “Christian tradition” with a Papist, for the Roman Catholic Church is not a Christian church, it is a pagan corruption.

His own 39 Articles, which supposedly govern his church, call the Roman Mass a “blasphemous fable” and a “dangerous deceit”, yet he is hand in hand with this architect of delusion which leads lost souls to hell.

If Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke shares a tradition with Eamon Martin then he can most assuredly not be called a Christian.

As for his “sincere shared prayer”, to whom is this prayer being addressed? The Roman Catholic Church teaches falsely of prayer to Mary and saints, yet the Bible says we can only pray to God. In 1 Timothy 2:5 we are told: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”. Does Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke believe there is a legitimacy in praying to Mary and saints?

Another apostate who was key in foisting the deceit of the ‘Good Friday Agreement’ upon Ulster’s Protestants is former Methodist President Rev Harold Good For Nothing (pictured, below).

He, along with ‘Father’ Alec Reid, a Protestant hating Romanist based at Clonard Monastery in West Belfast, played a key role in tricking Protestants into accepting this betrayal of their heritage.

Indeed, at ‘Father’ Alec Reid’s funeral a few years ago, Rev Harold Good For Nothing couldn’t have been more glowing in his praise to that architect of delusion who had helped corral countless numbers of poor benighted Roman Catholics into hell.

Rev Harold Good For Nothing called him a “very personal friend and brother in Christ”. As we discussed earlier this week regarding Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, Right Eejit John McDowell, they may well have served the same god and been brothers in that religion, but they certainly weren’t serving the God of heaven.

They “felt very secure in each other’s company”, he said. The attitude of a true child of God would not be so. It would be the same as the view of David as expressed 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 Harold Good For Nothing felt “very secure” in the company of the wicked. We believe that speaks for itself.

In his eulogy to a servant of the devil, Rev Harold Good For Nothing concluded: “May I offer you my blessing? Go forth my friend – in the name of the Father who created you; in the name of the Son who has redeemed you; in the name of the Holy Spirit who has sanctified you, may your journey now bring you to a place of real and lasting peace, the peace that you so richly deserve.”

What despicable words! Rev Harold Good For Nothing must believe there is salvation in the Roman Catholic Church, with its blasphemous denial of the precious Biblical truth of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

Ephesians 2:8-9 says: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Rome flatly denies this precious precept and therefore cannot show people the way to salvation.

‘Father’ Alec Reid hated Protestants and yet Rev Harold Good For Nothing felt “very secure” in his company.

At a meeting in Fitzroy Presbyterian Church (yes, a so-called Protestant church!), ‘Father’ Alec Reid said: “You don’t want to hear the truth. The reality is that the nationalist (read, Roman Catholic) community in Northern Ireland were treated almost like animals by the unionist (read, Protestant) community. They were not treated like human beings. They were treated like the Nazis treated the Jews.”

He later apologised for this disgraceful, utterly unfounded and deceitful diatribe, but qualified it with typical weasel words and said the IRA were “a violent response to the suppression of human rights” – yet another lie from Rev Harold Good For Nothing’s spiritual brother.

Indeed, there is a most interesting article discussing Clonard Monastery, ‘Father’ Alec Reid’s hangout for many years, on the ‘Irish Peace Process’ website, which can be viewed here, and its alleged links to the IRA.

Two decades on from the delivery of this shabby ‘peace’, we are two decades further away from God.

The numbers of those who faithfully cling to the old standards continues to decline in this land of ours which has so often benefited from the blessing of our glorious Saviour.

However, there is a way to see revival in our land once again, even though the day is evil.

It is laid out clearly for us in 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.”

Dear Christian, please cry to God for revival and that he might heal our land and bring true peace, which can come only through Christ.

If you are not saved, then you can have no peace in your heart until you submit yourself to God, repent of your sins and call upon Him for salvation.

Cling to the precious promise of John 6:37 today: “and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out”.
