‘LGBT Christian’ endorsing Rev John Dickinson adds his support to Jesuit priest

Jeremiah 29:8-9: “For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the Lord.”

Rev John Dickinson, minister of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, seems rather keen to let his Twitter followers know what he is reading.

He has previously informed his nigh on 1,200 followers on Twitter that he was reading the book by so-called “LGBT Christian” Vicky Beeching and how absolutely wonderful it is.

Its unambiguous title, ‘Undivided: Coming Out, Becoming Whole, And Living Free From Shame’, can leave nobody with any doubt as to what it is about.

Rev John Dickinson’s acolytes went into overdrive with their outrage that we should dare to highlight his despicable rejection of the Word of God, with the man himself giving his support to this, liking many of the abusive messages we received on facebook.

Such is the problem with many of these churches given over to charismatism, such as Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, the adherents are placing their faith in the preacher, not in God, so any challenge to the amiable man up the front who they think is infallible will not be met kindly, regardless of whether the Bible shows them to be in the wrong.

It is a form of ‘Protestant’ Popery.

And it is rather apt that Rev John Dickinson is now advocating one of the most well-known advocates of Popery on his Twitter page.

‘Father’ James Martin SJ is the author of the book to which Rev John Dickinson has been giving his endorsement.

Entitled ‘Jesus: A Pilgrimage’, the front cover, which Rev John Dickinson has photographed on his lap (pictured, below), gives the name of the author with the letters SJ, which means Society of Jesus, after it.

This ‘Father’ James Martin is a Jesuit, that order founded by Ignatius of Loyola specifically to fight back AGAINST the Protestant Reformation and which led the centuries long murderous, torturous Inquisition.

Just in case anyone didn’t know what the letters SJ indicated, below his name on the front cover is written “Bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything”, though of course Rev John Dickinson will be well aware of what SJ stands for. He just doesn’t care.

The post received a number of ‘likes’ on Twitter, including from an individual who attends his church and led the abuse of this page on facebook at the time of the Vicky Beeching affair.

It was also ‘liked’ by another Presbyterian minister, Rev Niall Lockhart, minister of Ballyhenry Presbyterian Church, located close to Rev John Dickinson’s domain of clerical compromise and deceit.

And, surprise, surprise, the great glorifier of Ignatius of Loyola, the utter Christ rejecter Alain Emerson of Emmanuel Church in the Lurgan and Portadown areas of County Armagh, was among those to ‘like’ the post.

Birds of a feather and all that.

The Saviour gives us notice of some of the evidences of false prophets in the gospels.

He says in Matthew 7:15-20: “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.”

There can be no doubt Rev John Dickinson is bringing forth evil, corrupt fruit.

He is expressing his support for sodomy in the church and for Romanism, and it is difficult to think of two more evil perversions of the Word of God than those two things.

The Bible is crystal clear on both of these matters.

Rev John Dickinson said on his Twitter page, by way of stating he was reading a new book, having completed his Popish one, that “after a journey in the footsteps of Jesus in the book I finished today…” he had moved on to another one.

What exactly does a Papist priest know about walking in the footsteps of Jesus? And what does Rev John Dickinson know about walking in the footsteps of Jesus if he thinks a Papist priest can show him?

This Jesuit deceiver, James Martin, denies the Lord Jesus Christ.

He denies that Christ’s sacrifice for sin at Calvary was once for all.

He denies that Christ’s sacrifice cleanses those who believe on Him from all sin.

He denies that Christ is the only mediator between God and man (see 1 Timothy 2:5 for a crystal clear lead on this).

He, and all other Papist priests, are liars and deceivers.

The book of Hebrews is a glorious exposition and explanation of true Christian doctrine and deals at length with the abolition of the priesthood which Rome blasphemously upholds its own corrupted version of to this day.

Hebrews 10:1-2, 9-12: “For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 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.”

The Romish blasphemy of the mass makes a repeated sacrifice of Jesus, yet this passage clearly shows Christ’s sacrifice was a one time occurrence.

The Apostle Paul asks the rhetorical question – “would they (the sacrifices) not have ceased to be offered?”

Had the previous sacrificial system been sufficient to wipe out all sin at once then it wouldn’t have had to be repeated.

The point of Christ’s sacrifice was that there might be an all-availing sacrifice for sin for ever. He offered “one sacrifice for sins for ever”.

Yet Rome continues with its repetitive sacrifices, continually claiming to offer up Christ, all the while Rev John Dickinson says he is being led in the footsteps of Jesus by a promoter and practitioner of this hellish lie.

What a rotten, stinking situation this is.

It is also noteworthy that this ‘Father’ James Martin is also a very vocal and prominent voice in the campaign for sodomites to be officially accepted into the Romanist priesthood in the USA (where he is from).

And, of course, as we have already referenced above, Rev John Dickinson’s views on homosexuality is much at odds with Scripture.

Not only has he toadied to Vicky Beeching, he has been a vocal critic of the Presbyterian Church’s entirely proper moves to bar full membership to open sodomites and preclude children in the care of two homosexuals being baptised, which you can read about by clicking here.

Such moves simply sanction sin, but that is what Rev John Dickinson is looking to do – sanction sin.

A true minister of God would be preaching sanctification, a running away from sin and pursuit of holiness, but he preaches the sanctioning of sin and the pursuit of ungodliness.

The Bible couldn’t make it any clearer that homosexuality is repugnant to God.

Leviticus 18:22 tells us it is an “abomination”, Romans 1:26-27 state clearly that it is “vile”, “against nature” and “unseemly”.

God’s judgment rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis for this wicked sin, which we are reminded of in Jude v 7, which says: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

Rev John Dickinson, by endorsing this wicked notion, is seemingly happy to sit back and let people “suffer the vengeance of eternal fire” and encourage other people to believe this lie too.

Do you want that type of minister to have spiritual oversight over you? Over your friends? Over your family? Over any soul?

He is like the false prophets in the day of Jeremiah who pretended to be speaking for God.

Jeremiah’s encounter with Hananiah in Jeremiah 28 tells us of the boldness of this false teacher, who voices his lofty, positive but false prophecy “in the presence of the priests and of all the people” (verse 2) before making his grand gesture of ripping the “yoke from off the prophet Jeremiah’s neck, and brak[ing] it” (verse 10) to symbolise, so he claimed, the impending victory of the Jews over the Babylonians who threatened them.

Jeremiah warns him that “when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him”.

And he follows this up by pointing out in verse 15: “Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie.”

Rev John Dickinson is making anyone who believes him to trust in a lie, rather than the truth of God’s Word.

He is promoting Popery and sodomite affirmation in the church.

Dear reader, if you or anyone you know is involved with Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, or Carnmoney / Central, his church’s offshoot in the middle of Belfast, ran by his son, David Dickinson, won’t you separate yourself immediately and urge those you know to do likewise.

Surely you do not want to be associated with Christ rejection, with the supporting of sodomy and the promotion of the evil, false gospel of Romanism.

Obey Christ’s call to separation and come out from among such apostasy and rank rejection of the truth of the Bible.

Revelation 18:4-5: “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

Newtownbreda Baptist persists in fellowshipping with Romish compromisers

Psalm 119:1-4: “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways. Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.”

Regular readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ will be aware that we have previously warned of the dangerous compromise being carried out by Newtownbreda Baptist Church in south Belfast.

Its membership, which continues to this day, of the Evangelical Alliance, led by determined Romish compromiser Peter Lynas and with several less than admirable members, was the first thing which brought it to our attention.

Since then, we have highlighted how Newtownbreda Baptist Church brought in a comedian to tickle the ears (and ribs) of attendees, as well as its joint venture, aptly entitled ‘Just One’, with a number of other charismatic leaning churches, CFC Belfast, UT Belfast, Orangefield Presbyterian Church and Crown Jesus Ministries.

Back in January this year, we also pointed out a prayer guide Newtownbreda Baptist Church was jointly promoting with the four churches mentioned above was using US heretic Rick Warren as part of its inspiration.

We have also pointed out brazen ecumenical compromise within some of the four charismatic churches which Newtownbreda Baptist Church has linked arms with.

This includes Crown Jesus Ministries leader ‘Mitch’, bringing in a leading charismatic Roman Catholic called Ron Huntley of Divine Renovation Ministry to his church and one of CFC Belfast’s groupings holding a retreat at the hotbed of ecumenical deceit and compromise that is Corrymeela.

All these warnings have gone unheeded by Pastor Trevor Ramsey (pictured, top), the lead pastor at Newtownbreda Baptist Church, as well as Community Pastor Tim Robinson and Associate Pastor Jonny Wright.

And just this week Pastor Trevor Ramsey took part in a webinar (combining the words website and seminar) hosted by the Ecumenical Alliance, sorry, Evangelical Alliance, and also featuring Mitch of Crown Jesus Ministries and a Jonny Campbell, the leader of the ecumenical, charismatic Alpha Course in Northern Ireland, who is also heavily involved with Orangefield Presbyterian Church.

Romanist Ron Huntley of Divine Renovation Ministry is a leading figure in the Alpha Course in Canada, showing how that utterly apostate church has bought into it, which should surely send alarm bells ringing for any true child of God. Furthermore, Nicky Gumbel, the man who is seen as the founder of the modern Alpha Course, has previously been highlighted on this page for fawning over a Roman Catholic cardinal from the Philippines because he organised a Papal visit to his country attended by millions of poor, deluded souls being directed to hell by “that Antichrist”.

The webinar, for those who are interested, discussed what those individuals saw as the best way for “the church” to respond to the Covid-19 crisis in terms of evangelism.

In his introduction at the beginning of the webinar, Pastor Trevor Ramsey stresses how “happy” he was to be taking part with compromisers, while Mitch extols the alleged virtues of the Alpha Course and then later on refers to the Lord’s Prayer as the “Our Father”, the term used to describe the Lord’s Prayer by Romanists. Rick Warren also gets a positive name check, again by Mitch.

Pastor Trevor Ramsey is pointing out how “happy” he is to be keeping spiritual company with men who promote a course that Rome has endorsed and who bring Romanists in to speak to their flock.

Indeed, Mitch has previously expressed his delight at a prominent Methodist minister, Rev John Alderdice, preaching at the blasphemous Romanist novena at Clonard Monastery last year, quoting Pope Francis by way of encouragement. The exchange is reproduced below, to demonstrate this beyond doubt.

This is the nature of the people Newtownbreda Baptist Church is mixing with spiritually.

Another of the webinars was held two days after the one involving Pastor Trevor Ramsey, Mitch and Jonny Campbell, this time featuring Owen Crane, lead pastor of CFC Belfast and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, the man who glorified the evil founder of the Romanist order of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola, which led the centuries long murderous Inquisition.

We have faithfully, as best we can and with God as our help and guide, sought to warn Pastor Trevor Ramsey and all those connected with Newtownbreda Baptist Church of the dangerous links being formed.

We would urge everyone reading this to contact anyone you know within this church and to contact any of the three pastors mentioned above to once more bring this to their attention.

You can ask anyone you know or those pastors are they happy with the links they are forming?

Are they happy that Peter Lynas, Alain Emerson (pictured, below), Owen Crane, Mitch, Jonny Campbell, etc are appropriate characters to be mingling with spiritually?

Are they happy that Mitch is quoting the Pope as encouragement to a compromising minister preaching at a blasphemous Romanist novena and their church is then joining in events and prayer guides with him?

If anyone reading this is a member or even a regular or occasional attendee, can you ask yourself if you are content with these links being formed? Are they God honouring? Are they consistent with the Word of God?

The Bible says in Ephesians 5:11 that we are to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them”.

There can be no dispute that Rome, which denies the all-sufficient death of Christ at Calvary, which exalts and worships Mary, which offers the blasphemous Mass, which teaches of a fictitious place they call purgatory and which claims the Pope is God on earth, can justly be called the “unfruitful works of darkness”.

Do you want your church to be associated with such? Do you want your loved ones associated with such?

Let us follow the Scriptural command to separation, as clearly given to us in 2 Corinthians 6:17, which says: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord”.

Note that this call to separation comes from the Lord.

Man may tell you it is better to stay in, not to cause a fuss, to look at the good deeds being carried out in the church, to try to change things from within, perhaps, but look against what the Lord says: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate”.

Let us all rather listen to the Lord and follow the words of Peter, when he said in Acts 5:29: “We ought to obey God rather than men”.

CFC Belfast links up with ecumenical, LGBT affirming Corrymeela

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

Today, more than ever, the charismatic movement offers two primary problems.

The first is the traditional problem associated with charismatism, the preoccupation with signs and wonders, things like speaking in tongues and their so-called ‘prophecy’.

The second, more recently prevalent problem is that of its growing links with the ecumenical movement.

We have seen that in the likes of the Emmanuel Church based in the Craigavon area of County Armagh, where one of its lead pastors, Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, above), glorified the founder of the anti-Christian Romanist order of the Jesuits, Ignatius of Loyola, while another of its lead pastors, Dave Wylie, called a Papist monk a “hero of church history”.

We have seen that in the likes of ‘ABBA prayer dancer’ Pete Greig, founder of 24-7 Prayer, offering his advice on gathering a crowd to the Roman Catholic Church in Austria.

We have seen that in the likes of Keith Mitchell, or Mitch (pictured, below), as he matily likes to be known, pastor of Crown Jesus Ministries in Belfast, inviting in a Roman Catholic charismatic, Ron Huntley of Divine Restoration Ministry, to speak at his church last autumn.

And it is one of Keith’s, sorry, Mitch’s pals in his charismatic pentarchy in Belfast (Crown Jesus Ministries, UT Belfast, Orangefield Presbyterian Church, Newtownbreda Baptist Church / Comedy Club and CFC Belfast) which is the latest we have discovered to have shown its ease with the ecumenical movement.

It is the latter of the five we specified which has demonstrated its disregard for the Word of God in this most important matter.

CFC (Christian Fellowship Church) Belfast has a number of campuses, as it were, with meetings taking place at CFC East, CFC Inner East, CFC South, CFC Holywood, CFC Antrim and CFC Sign Language. Its overall leader is Owen Crane (pictured, top).

The idea of having regular meetings (twice a month they meet separately and twice a month they join in with CFC East) for those with hearing difficulties is certainly a very good, and indeed thoughtful and noble one.

We want to make that very clear before we say anything else – this is a fine thing to do.

However, sadly, we have discovered that CFC Sign Language held a retreat at the ecumenical den of iniquity known as Corrymeela.

Regular readers or those who observe religious matters generally in Northern Ireland will be well aware of the nature of Corrymeela, it is the home of ecumenism in this country, set up specifically to ignore and minimise the very clear and vital differences between the Reformed Protestant and Roman Catholic faiths.

Its leader until last year was an open sodomite and Romanist, Padraig O’Tuama, and it holds each year a conference celebrating sodomy called ‘Blessed are the Brave’.

The reality of this retreat is revealed on the Corrymeela Facebook page in a post published back in February, while it appears, going by the CFC Sign Language Facebook page, that the retreat took place last October.

Corrymeela reveal this retreat took place in their Facebook post dated 11 February as they publicise a video encouraging other groups to book retreats with them.

The post says: “We’d love to welcome your group to our beautiful Ballycastle home to support you as you bring change in your lives and communities.

“In our inspiring new film, our friends from CFC Deaf Community and Lower Shankill Methodist have shared how welcomed and renewed they felt by their stay with us.”

The message then ends with a number of “hashtags”, including #change, #peace, #reconciliation, true ecumenical watchwords.

As we have said already, and cannot stress enough, for we know how those who despise this page’s witness will be eager to lay a false charge against us, we believe it is a very good thing to make church more accessible for those with hearing difficulties, but all this is doing is serving to create a positive image in the minds of more people of this ecumenical pit.

Corrymeela is a site wholly given over to religious compromise, and it is a site wholly given over to the utterly repugnant to God’s Word notion of LGBT affirmation within the church.

God pronounced His curse on this sin repeatedly through Scripture.

He called it an “abomination” in Leviticus 18:22, He called it “vile”, “against nature” and “unseemly” in Romans 1:26-27 and we are reminded of His judgment on such sin in Jude v 7.

That verse says: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

What a fearful judgment awaits the unrepentant homosexual, yet Corrymeela encourages such individuals on in their sin, calling the practitioners of that which God deplores “brave”.

We should be praying that homosexuals, like all others who know not Christ, are saved by the blood of Jesus, even as were “some” in the church of Corinth.

CFC Belfast as an organisation needs to apologise and repent for such an appalling form of compromise as this and we would urge anyone reading this familiar with any of the CFC branches mentioned above to challenge them for what is, at the very best, a ghastly error of judgment.

It also raises questions once again for the other four churches on such particularly cosy terms with CFC Belfast.

What does Mitch and Crown Jesus Ministries think of Corrymeela and LGBT affirmation?

What does Rev Gareth MacLean (minister), Gary Ball (Associate Minister) and Orangefield Presbyterian Church think of Corrymeela and LGBT affirmation?

What does UT (Ulster Temple Elim) Belfast think of Corrymeela and LGBT affirmation?

What does Pastor Trevor Ramsey (Senior Pastor, pictured, below), Pastor Tim Robinson (Community Pastor), Pastor Jonny Wright (Associate Pastor) and Newtownbreda Baptist Church think of Corrymeela and LGBT affirmation?

These are major questions as these five churches continue to be linked closely.

Of course, previous major issues we have pointed out previously have been utterly ignored and disregarded, but we are faithfully, as God leads us, doing our best to draw this to their attention and then pray God will speak to hearts and cause people to wake up and separate from the workers of compromise and deceit in our land.

You, dear reader, can do this too by contacting any of the churches above, urging them to disassociate themselves with CFC Belfast or urging CFC Belfast to publicly declare what they did was utterly contrary to Scripture and repent for it.

Do not concern yourself with whether or not your message will get through to them, but rather follow the advice God gave Ezekiel when He called Him into His service.

Ezekiel 2:5-7: “And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them. And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.”

Let us simply sow the seed and let God give the increase.

Coronavirus ‘certainly not’ a punishment from God, say the DUP

Surely any true child of God cannot fail to see the judgment of God at work during this coronavirus crisis.

As this world grows ever more rebellious against our Creator, it is tempting Him more and more.

God is patient, we are reminded of this in 2 Peter 3:9, which says: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

However, God’s patience does not last forever.

He gave Sodom and Gomorrah every chance to turn from their sin, but eventually He visited judgment upon them.

He let Saul hold the throne of Israel for 40 years, but eventually He took him away.

He let many other evil kings hold their positions of power for lengthy periods, such as Ahab, who reigned 22 years, Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, renowned for making Israel to sin, reigned the same period of time, while the second king called Jeroboam reigned for 41 years.

God bears with evil men sometimes for not long, but often He bears with them for a long time.

It can seem there are no consequences for wilful and persistent sinning.

Ecclesiastes 8:11 touches on this, when it says: “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.”

This is no slight on God in allowing wicked men to carry on in their sin, but rather a condemnation of the totally depraved heart of man.

We bear the guilt of our own actions, as the Saviour even outlined in 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!”

However, we are sure that, whether it be immediately, as was the case even for some of the evil kings of Israel and Judah, or whether it be “in the long grass”, as we might say, God will reckon for sin.

And are we not seeing that even now in the death, misery, sorrow, isolation and financial ruin being caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic sweeping across the world?

So much of this world has turned its back completely on the Lord.

Throughout the world now there are moves to celebrate that for which God destroyed the aforementioned cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, with ‘Pride’ parades polluting so many city centres.

Throughout the world now, infanticide, known euphemistically as abortion, is so commonplace, it is the biggest killer worldwide. At the time of writing, there have been nearly 12.7 million abortions carried out globally this year so far. That is an average of about 117,000 every day.

So far, coronavirus has claimed the lives of somewhere in the region of 160,000 people worldwide.

Roughly that same number of unborn babies have been done away with in the past 33 hours.

Due to the threat posed by coronavirus, the world has came to a virtual standstill out of fear over how many lives will be lost, yet babies continue to be murdered en masse with a callous disregard for their lives.

Indeed, baby murder campaigners have been howling with outrage that Northern Ireland’s health minister, Robin Swann, didn’t seem to be prioritising the implementation of the new wicked abortion laws in our country enough for their liking. Apparently his preoccupation with a global pandemic was an unsatisfactory explanation for his mind being elsewhere.

The Alliance Party MP Stephen Farry intervened to state his belief abortion pills should be made available for women to conveniently kill their own flesh and blood from the comfort of their own home, showing once again for all to see what a wicked group the Alliance Party is.

Northern Ireland has, of course, recently had the foul, retrograde laws forced upon us to allow baby murder on demand and facilitate sodomite marriage.

And it is in this environment that a DUP Councillor took to social media to express his belief the coronavirus pandemic was a punishment from God.

Naturally, this was met by a huge outcry from the same easily offended people who are not in the least offended by the notion of murdering a baby in their mother’s womb.

His horrendously offensive Facebook post said: “I said when abortion was legalised that our nation would be judged by God because of its departure from his word and the legalisation of the murder of the unborn child as well as same-sex marriage.

“You reap what you sow and our nation is now reaping the judgment of God because of an immoral and corrupt government.”

Not a thing wrong with what DUP Councillor John Carson, who represents the Ballymena area in County Antrim, said there.

However, sadly he then issued a craven apology to anyone he may have offended.

He said: “…anyone who knows me will know that l would not intentionally set out to cause hurt or offence to anyone and if l did then for that l humbly apologise.”

John Carson went on to say he would not apologise for standing up for his Christian beliefs but he already effectively had.

The enemies of the gospel are loud and proud in their rejection of God’s Word, yet Christians seem reluctant to share God’s Word and apologetic if they do.

Matthew 5:13-16 gives us the words of the Saviour when He speaks of how we are not to be ashamed of Him.

He says: “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

While John Carson backing down was sad, it was much sadder still to hear the view then expressed by his party, the party founded by Rev Ian Paisley, a man who, in his heyday, was a fearless preacher of God’s Word, used mightily of the Lord in our land.

Diane Dodds (pictured, top), recently parachuted back into Stormont after a number of years as a Member of the European Parliament and promptly landed into the vaunted (and generously paid at £87,500 per annum) role of economy minister (no doubt her being married to the party’s deputy leader, Nigel Dodds, is in no way a factor in her abrupt promotion), said “it certainly does not reflect the views of the DUP”.

What a long way the DUP has fallen that they shun the view that God’s hand is in the affairs of men, but rather that God is detached from the world we live in.

Worse still, when asked if John Carson would be disciplined, Diane Dodds said she was “presuming it will go to party officers”, a euphemistic way of saying “yes”.

So the DUP is at the very least threatening a councillor who took a Biblical view (before his cowardly backtracking) with censure or punishment of some kind.

How far this party has fallen.

If you are as yet looking at the DUP with any type of hope, believing they might just be willing to take a stand for God, we would urge you to reconsider.

The DUP has a lesbian councillor, the DUP has allowed one of its MLAs (Paula Bradley) to sign off on allowing a disgusting ‘drag queen’ act be held at Stormont, the DUP has funnelled thousands of pounds to sodomite groups and one of its senior MLAs, Mervyn Storey (pictured, below) met with and congratulated the leader of the utterly God-defying Corrymeela Community on 50 years of its existence.

This is the direction of travel within the DUP – the number of born again Christians within the party, both elected representatives and party officials, continues to dwindle.

How often do we hear a Biblical case put forward by the DUP any more for anything?

John Carson, who, despite his backtracking, is better than those who stay silent, was pushed back into his box very quickly by the DUP party machine.

May God save us from relying on any political party for succour, but rather let us look always to Him.

Let us keep our eyes firmly fixed on the Saviour and not on man.

Psalm 118:8-9: “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.”

Blasphemous Archbishop of Canterbury praying for the dead!

2 Samuel 12:16,18-23: “David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth. And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead? But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the Lord, and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat. Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

This example of King David ceasing to petition God for the recovery of his child when he knew the child had died is not only an instance of common sense, but it also teaches us a clear Scriptural truth.

It is common sense because when someone dies then we know they aren’t going to get any better and the clear Scriptural truth is that after we die we go straight to heaven or hell, depending on whether we had placed our faith and trust in Christ for salvation and had our sins washed away.

David states of his child that “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me”.

There was no question in the mind of the man who we are told was a man after God’s own heart that there was no value in praying for his son once he died.

Yet the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, or more aptly the Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby, stated brazenly on his facebook page that he was doing just that – offering prayers for the dead.

On Saturday, 4 April, the old Arch-apostate posted on Facebook the following: “Tonight I am praying for those who have died. Loving God, may they know the comfort of your presence.”

Such an act is nothing but a wretched Romanist superstition with absolutely no grounding in the canon of Holy Scripture.

There is no merit in prayers for the dead. If a person is saved when they die they go to heaven and, sadly, if they aren’t saved they are lost for all eternity in that awful place called hell.

This is spelled out clearly for us again by the Saviour, who, to put it mildly, knows an awful lot more about eternity than the Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby, in Luke 16.

Recounting the story of the rich man and Lazarus, Jesus tells us in Luke 16:22-26: “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.”

The rich man woke up in hell when he died, he didn’t lie in a state of nothingness for a while, he didn’t go to purgatory as the Romish lies would say, he didn’t have a chance of getting from hell to heaven – “they which would pass from hence to you cannot, neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence”.

There is no benefit whatsoever in praying for the dead, nothing could save the rich man from his eternal destination.

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby would do well to read these passages and appreciate the blasphemy of what he is doing, and then, in sorrow and distress, cry to God for mercy and for Him to save his soul from a lost eternity like that rich man.

The second part of Arch-apostate Justin Welby’s disgraceful comment on Facebook continues the blasphemy and takes the form of a prayer, when he says: “Loving God, may they know the comfort of your presence”.

As we have previously alluded to, those who have passed from this life into eternity cannot know the comfort of God’s presence unless they were saved when they died.

If they are in God’s presence then they are assured of much, much more than just comfort.

Psalm 16:11 tells us: “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

God’s presence gives us “fulness of joy”, or an abundance of joy, a complete and utter satisfaction and delight, indeed a joy that passes all earthly understanding is the reward of those who “love his appearing”.

We don’t need to pray that those who have left their mortal frames on earth and have “put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:53) would be comforted, we know they are in the presence of God, experiencing that “fulness of joy” and “pleasures for evermore”.

This is a wonderful assurance for the believer and for Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby to seek to denigrate the wonderful inheritance we have in Christ is nothing short of despicable.

Equally, it is vain and pointless to pray for those dead who have denied Christ in their life as they are in hell for evermore.

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby says he is offering prayers for “those who have died”, he didn’t try to make any distinction, not that he should have been praying for anyone who was dead anyway.

An unsaved individual, we are told in Luke 16, is separated from the saints of God by a “great gulf”.

This gulf, we are told, is “fixed”, it cannot move, and furthermore, it is final – “neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence”.

There is no way back for the person who dies in their sins – their eternal destination is sealed, there are no second chances.

That is why, dear reader, it is so important that we are ready to die.

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

God tells us in Genesis 6:3 that “My spirit shall not always strive with man”.

If God is speaking to you, don’t ignore Him, He may never speak to you again.

When we die our fate is sealed and no amount of prayers from Justin Welby or any other allegedly Protestant apostate or any earnest but blinded Romanist will avail us anything.

Come to Christ today for salvation, repent of your sins, and spend all eternity in His presence, experiencing that wonderful “fulness of joy”.

Degrees from Rome, ashes from priests and Corrymeela’s sodomite celebration – yet more rebellion against God

Psalm 12:8: “The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.”

This post is a slightly unusual one as we intend to cover a few matters at once.

We have been struggling to find the time to keep the pieces coming regularly of late, though maybe the government ordered lockdown might help with that!

We plan to cover a little ground here with regards events or news items we maybe didn’t notice at the time or just didn’t get round to highlighting.

Corrymeela hosts conference for LGBT affirming faith groups and leaders

If anyone were in any doubt of the wretched nature of the God-defying Corrymeela Community, the title above would surely be enough to copper fasten such an impression.

Corrymeela has long been a hub of ecumenical deceit, but over the past decade or so it has very clearly added its endorsement of the God hating LGBT lobby to its inglorious CV.

That process would certainly have accelerated during the period when its leader, handsomely remunerated at £50,000, was open sodomite Padraig O’Tuama.

However, given this was the eighth annual holding of this event, the first one must have been held in 2013, a year before Padraig O’Tuama became leader.

The conference, held back in January is entitled ‘Blessed are the Brave’, although what is brave about open defiance of God is hard to fathom.

A description Corrymeela have made of their event in the form of a Q&A says this:

“‘LGBT affirming Faith leaders’ – what’s that?

“This retreat is for Christian faith leaders who believe that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people should rightly enjoy full membership and leadership in all aspects of society.

“We chose the term ‘faith leader’ because it is a broad term – you might lead a congregation, lead a small group, be involved as a chaplain, have faith responsibilities in your work, or be a part of a group of another group of faith-oriented people. Upon application we will ask you to outline your faith involvement.

“Is it a weekend to discuss if the bible affirms LGBT people?

“Blessed are the brave weekends are for people who read the bible in a way that affirms the lives, stories and gifts of LGBT people in faith and society.”

So there you have it, this is for people who choose to twist Scripture into something unrecognisable from reality to suit their ungodly beliefs.

It is also interesting that they choose to capitalise the words “lesbian”, “gay”, “bisexual” and “transgender” (you will notice that we most certainly haven’t) but deliberately, twice in the small excerpt we have quoted above, refused to use a capital ‘B’ for the Bible.

This shows what they think is more important, the God accursed sodomite movement.

Jude 1:7 reminds us of this when it says: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

Eternal fire awaits those within the sodomite movement and Corrymeela seeks to put a religious gloss on this awful truth to pretend it is not the case.

Everyone who organised this conference is guilty of the blood of sodomites and their so-called “allies” and so are the self-proclaimed “faith leaders” who were in attendance.

The title “faith leader” would carry a strong suggestion they have some form of spiritual oversight of others, making them just as guilty as the wicked minds behind this conference.

The current leader of the Corrymeela Community is an ordained Presbyterian minister, Rev Alex Wimberly (pictured, top).

Has the Presbyterian Church moved to remove him as a minister, thus depriving him of his ‘Reverend’ title? What do you think?

The sorry stink arising from that apostate denomination grows ever stronger and more putrid.

Presbyterian ministers to get their degree from Rome

Speaking of the Presbyterian Church, it has decided the best way forward is to move from cuddling up to Rome to officially becoming its subservient little lap dog.

After its training ground for ministers, Union Theological College (UTC), fell foul of the thought police at Queen’s University because the church moved ever so tepidly against the sodomite movement and saw their undergraduate courses ditched by Queen’s, the Presbyterian Church has been scratching around to find an alternative.

And now it thinks it has its solution – a link up with probably the most famous Romanist university in the United Kingdom, St Mary’s in Twickenham in London.

Under the planned arrangement, St Mary’s University would “validate” undergraduate degrees offered by UTC.

So trainee ministers will not be able to attain their degree without getting the seal of approval from an educational establishment set up to promote Popery.

What a sorry indication of the state of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.

For the sake of a letter or two after their ministers’ names, the largest allegedly Protestant church on this island will go cap in hand to Rome.

There will be no following of Ephesians 5:11 in this instance.

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

It is certainly hard to imagine a Romanist university taking too kindly to a Presbyterian minister reproving the unfruitful works of darkness which make up Rome (though it is also hard to imagine any of them doing it too volubly) when they are tied to them for their qualification.

Yet more compromise is not the answer to the Presbyterian Church’s problems.

Presbyterian minister takes ashes from Papal priest at ecumenical Ash Wednesday service

Here we have yet more wretched compromise from the Presbyterian Church with Rome.

On Ash Wednesday, a day traditionally only celebrated by Papists to mark the first day of Lent, retired Presbyterian minister Rev Ken Newell (pictured, above) continued the pattern of a lifetime by ignoring the Bible and his Protestant heritage by cuddling up with Rome.

Rev Ken Newell, along with ‘Rev’ Elizabeth Hanna, a retired Church of Ireland ‘minister’ and Rev Robin Waugh, the Methodist minister at Sydenham in East Belfast, attended the service at St Mary’s Roman Catholic chapel in Belfast.

Indeed, Rev Ken Newell delivered the sermon at this service, led by Papist priest ‘Father’ Tim Bartlett, with leading ecumenical priest ‘Father’ Martin Magill applying the ashes to the three God-defying ‘Protestant’ ministers’ foreheads.

‘Rev’ Hanna said: “I thoroughly enjoyed being here, and history has been made. It was great being a part of it.”

Rev Ken Newell said: “This will be a symbolic service of healing and reconciliation, of togetherness and not of division. It is another opportunity for the churches to walk side by side, and to move on towards a better future for everyone.”

Rev Ken Newell is a very prominent part of the ecumenical movement, his Romish compromise over many years at Fitzroy Presbyterian Church in Belfast now being carried on by Rev Steve Stockman, who runs the wretched Four Corners festival each year alongside the aforementioned ‘Father’ Martin Magill.

Rev Robin Waugh (pictured, below) seems to make a habit of ecumenical actions, blasphemously being the speaker at a novena mass at Clonard Monastery in west Belfast as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity back in January 2018.

And ‘Rev’ Elizabeth Hanna is on record as being highly critical of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland distancing itself from the Church of Scotland over the latter’s support for sodomite marriage.

So there is a clear pattern of abandonment of the Word of God here with all three.

Jude v 3 reminds us that “ye should earnestly contend for the faith”.

Such a notion is these days, in many quarters, considered to be evidence of an absence of Christianity when it is the very opposite.

Let us not be fooled by these “certain men (and some women) crept in unawares” who serve to deny the “only Lord God” with their actions.

Rather, let us test the spirits, use spiritual discernment and shun those who serve to dishonor the cause of Christ, be it by endorsement of the sodomite movement, compromise with Rome or any other way.

2 Corinthians 6:17-18: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

Church of Ireland canon preaches at Roman Catholic Novena

Religious compromise with Rome appears to be almost compulsory in the previously Protestant Church of Ireland, certainly if you want to achieve any sort of exalted rank.

There is scarcely a bishop who isn’t on friendly terms with their Romanist counterpart, with the new Archbishop of Armagh, John McDowell, a prime example of someone completely given over to Romish compromise.

We have previously written about other recently retired bishops, including the former Archbishop of Armagh Richard Clarke, former Bishop of Derry and Raphoe Ken Good and former Bishop of Down and Dromore Harold Miller, who were ever keen to betray their own church’s 39 Articles and link arms with the promoters of the pagan falsehoods of Rome.

We have previously written about plenty of canons and archdeacons who have similarly shown their true religious colours by rejecting God’s Word and siding with the enemies of Christ, such as Canon David Skuce, now a rector in County Donegal and formerly in County Fermanagh, Canon Mark Harvey, rector in Lurgan, County Armagh and Archdeacon Stephen McBride, rector in Antrim town who previously spoke at a Romanist novena.

And that same act of apostasy was sadly committed just last month by another Church of Ireland canon, this time Canon Ian Ellis (pictured, top), rector of Rossorry Parish Church, near Enniskillen in County Fermanagh.

His actions live up to the second part of his church’s name as it is very sorry indeed.

This Canon Ian Ellis is not to be confused with the man of the same name and rank who was formerly editor of the Church of Ireland Gazette and is now a rector in Newcastle, County Down, although he too is fond of Romish compromise.

This Canon Ian Ellis was a preacher at the annual so-called “Novena of Hope” held at The Graan Monastery in County Fermanagh, although the “Novena of No Hope” would be a better name for it, given it is utterly contrary to the Word of God.

What is a Novena? It is a Roman Catholic ritual and according to the ‘Pray More Novenas’ website, “a Novena is made up of nine days of prayer and meditation, usually to ask God for special prayer requests or petitions. Novenas are often used to ask specific saints to pray for us”.

So a Novena involves the invocation of saints, despite the Bible’s teaching in 1 Timothy 2:5, which says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

Wikipedia continues and says: “The practice grew by the Middle Ages to include pious prayers for nine days before a feast in honour of a saint identified on a liturgical calendar. By the 11th century, the Novena practice had become a means in Christianity of praying to petition personal or spiritual favour to a saint, such as Virgin Mary. After the Reformation and Counter-Reformation era, the Catholic Church formally approved Novenas, in particular through the papal approvals of a large number of Novenas by Pope Pius IX.”

So the Novena has the stamp of approval from the Pope, “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the man who blasphemously sets himself up in God’s place.

Wikipedia goes on to say: “The practice of the Novena is based in early Christianity, where masses were held for nine days with devotional prayers to someone who has died.”

So the Novena has its roots in prayer for the dead, which is a reference to the Romanist lie of purgatory, an absolutely anti-Biblical construct of the Roman Catholic Church. When we die we either go straight to heaven or straight to hell. There is no in between.

Look at the rich man in Luke 16. We are told in verses 22-23: “…the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments…”

There was no in between for the rich man. He died and went straight to hell.

And the lies and deceits of Rome will take all who adhere to them there as well.

Canon Ian Ellis’ betrayal of his church’s heritage took place on Thursday, 5 March when he spoke on the topic “Hope is… Reaching out the hand of fellowship to our brothers and sisters who come from other traditions”.

And there we were thinking that hope lay in salvation which comes alone by faith alone in Jesus Christ.

We are to place our hope in the triune God.

Romans 15:13 says: “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

We are to place our hope in the word of God.

Psalm 119:114 says: “Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.”

Hope is at the root of faith in Christ.

Hebrews 11:1,3: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

That is where hope lies, not in ecumenical jollies and soft soap words designed to make the speaker and the hearers feel nice about themselves and congratulate themselves on being so wonderfully tolerant and open-minded.

Where the undiluted gospel of Christ is not preached then there is no value in it and Canon Ian Ellis could not have preached the undiluted gospel of Christ at that novena as it is an event designed to contradict the gospel of Christ.

Last summertime we highlighted the truly despicable situation whereby four different allegedly Protestant ministers spoke at the novena at Clonard Monastery, a hub of Romanist deceit in Irish republican west Belfast.

The four were ‘Rev’ Tracey McRoberts, ‘minister’ of St Matthew’s Church of Ireland on the Shankill Road in Belfast, Presbyterian ‘minister’ ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban, who acts as the church’s chaplain at Queen’s University, Rev Johnston McMaster, Methodist minister and professor in the Irish School of Ecumenics and Rev John Alderdice, another Methodist minister, who is also Director of Ministry at Edgehill Theological College, the training school for aspiring Methodist ministers in Northern Ireland.

On recordings of the services from the novena, all four can be seen happily sitting throughout the entire mass service, watching on as the priest blasphemously lifts the wafer above his head and claims Jesus is truly present in the wafer and in the wine. Rev John Alderdice is pictured below, second from left, sitting contentedly as the blasphemous mass is offered up.

And, unless the novena at The Graan is very different from any other novenas held everywhere else, Canon Ian Ellis was happy to sit and watch our Lord Jesus Christ being offered up once again blasphemously by a God-defying Romanist priest.

We are reminded in Hebrews 10:11-12 that Christ’s sacrifice was once for all.

It says: “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”.

The mass is an accursed blasphemy which denies the God it falsely claims to honour and Canon Ian Ellis, as a Church of Ireland minister, is outrageously doing a disservice to his most important role by sitting back and letting such blasphemies go on without raising his voice against them.

Worse still, he is encouraging those who attend and partake in the mass to continue on in their sin by giving credence to the Roman Catholic Church.

Canon Ian Ellis certainly has a track record of chumming up with Rome, as it is reported on the website of a newspaper local to his current church that, at his institution as rector there in March 2015, two senior Papists were in attendance.

One was ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly and the other was well-known Romanist priest and media personality ‘Father’ Brian D’Arcy, who formerly served in The Graan.

We will remind Canon Ian Ellis and any other compromiser within the Church of Ireland what the 28th of their 39 Articles of faith says regarding the Lord’s Supper.

It says: “Transubstantiation (or the change of the substance of Bread and Wine) in the Supper of the Lord, cannot be proved by holy Writ; but is repugnant to the plain words of Scripture, overthroweth the nature of a Sacrament, and hath given occasion to many superstitions.”

The 31st Article adds that “the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it was commonly said, that the Priest did offer Christ for the quick and the dead, to have remission of pain or guilt, were blasphemous fables, and dangerous deceits.”

How much better are the standards of their Anglican forefathers than what we see polluting pulpits throught Northern Ireland and so many other places today.

The 39 Articles call the mass a “blasphemous fable and dangerous deceit” and say the Romanist doctrine of transubstantiation is “repugnant” to the Word of God.

What a shameful situation it is to see Canon Ian Ellis engaging with such an event as this.

Once again we appeal to any involved with the Church of Ireland to separate themselves fully from this apostate denomination and urge any who are as yet unsaved to come to Christ for salvation.

Our only hope for an eternity in heaven lies not in the observance of sacraments or sacrifices, but in the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Come to him today, do not delay.

Proverbs 27:1: “Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”

Acts 4:12: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Does Stuart Bothwell still consider him a “giant “?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sodomite ‘Pride’ group persists with parade despite coronavirus pandemic

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Great news, the true child of God might say.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 Chronicles 7:13-14: “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

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

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

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

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

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

What wickedness is permitted and indeed celebrated in our country.

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

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

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

And yet the UK still refuses to turn to God.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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