Arlene Foster attends ecumenical Remembrance service in Romanist chapel

The DUP’s gradual, yet continual, decline from its former Biblical standards continued even over Remembrance Sunday, which this year also marked the 100th anniversary of the Armistice at the end of what became known as the First World War.

The party’s leader, Arlene Foster (pictured, top), a Fermanagh woman, was in attendance at an ecumenical Remembrance service in the Roman Catholic church in Enniskillen, St Michael’s, on the evening of Remembrance Sunday.

And party MP, Jeffrey Donaldson, was in attendance at an ecumenical service where the Papist Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin was the guest speaker.

That service was held in the second biggest hub of ecumenism (the biggest being the ghastly Corrymeela Community on the north coast) in Northern Ireland, St Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast.

At both meetings the chief preacher was an architect of Romish deceit and Papal priestcraft, with the speaker in the Enniskillen service being ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly.

Among the allegedly Protestant ministers who took part in the service, and who have all been photographed at the front of the chapel beside where the blasphemous Romish Mass is offered up, was Rev Kenneth Hall (pictured, below with ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly), Dean of the Clogher Diocese and minister of St Macartin’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Enniskillen.

He is a habitual ecumenist and you can read of his devotion to compromise with Rome by clicking here and of a service he held in St Macartin’s Cathedral honouring a Jesuit priest in the process of being sainted by the Pope by clicking here.

Also taking part, fresh from preaching from the Apocrypha in a Remembrance Sunday service in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen that morning, was the Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit John McDowell.

Another Protestant traitor added into the mix was Rev David Cupples (pictured, below), minister of Enniskillen Presbyterian Church. Rev David Cupples last year took several months off his duties to complete a Papist pilgrimage called the Camino de Santiago.

And completing the concoction of clerical compromisers on stage was ‘Rev’ Lorna Dreaning (1 Timothy 2:12), the recently appointed ‘minister’ of Enniskillen Methodist Church, wasting little time in laying her ecumenical cards on the table.

Add into the mix reports that other clergy, Orangemen and representatives of the Royal British Legion were in attendance and you have a very confused picture inside that den of Romanism.

This service was trumpeted as a sign of great civility between Protestants and Catholics, but it is in fact a sign of Protestants being deceived by the wiles of Rome and failing to keep themselves unstained from false worship.

When the world at large thinks a Church service is wonderful, one must be very sceptical.

Jesus reminds us of this when speaking in John 15:18-19. He says: “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”

And what of Arlene Foster and her presence?

Given she is a member of the Church of Ireland, her local Bishop, the man who told her it was ok to go to a GAA match on a Sunday, is Right Eejit John McDowell and he was complicit in this ungodly show last week.

However, we are all accountable for our own actions before God, though a minister bears a mighty responsibility for the souls he is charged with providing guidance to.

Arlene Foster continues to eschew fundamental Biblical Christianity, something which her party was founded upon and which many of its members would still claim to support.

The Bible says we are not to share in worship with those who are spiritually unclean, such as the Church of Rome.

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

We have received a few comments in recent months commenting on whether or not Arlene Foster is a Christian. Our understanding is she would say she is and therefore we must take her at her word.

So, given that situation, she ought to know a great deal better than to consort with Popery in such a flagrant way, or indeed in any way.

Rome’s false gospel of works-based salvation and its manifold other blasphemies, such as prayer to Mary and to so-called ‘Saints’, prayer for the dead, the Mass, the titles the Pope takes on himself, idolatry and the fictional creation of purgatory, are vile offences against God and His inspired Word.

It is little wonder Ulster is in the sorry spiritual state it is in when you see representatives of much of the major so-called Protestant institutions in our country participating in such a manner.

The same can be said of Sir Jeffrey Donaldson, though there was nothing distinguishing in his attending a Remembrance service with Eamon Martin taking a leading role.

To attend a meeting in the den of ecumenical iniquity such as St Anne’s Cathedral is bad enough, but when a Papist is taking the pulpit? What a dreadful mess.

Our country will never see revival if Christians continue to look to the likes of Arlene Foster and Jeffrey Donaldson for their help.

In 1921, the Protestants of Ulster were saved from Rome rule by the formation of Northern Ireland.

However, as we look at the untold damage the ecumenical churches have done to our country and as we look at the rising tide of voters choosing to back those who to this day support and indeed celebrate the murder of Protestants to advance their evil cause, we can see the judgment of God coming upon Ulster.

If the people of Ulster do not turn back to God with all their heart, if they do not cease to mingle seed with Popery, then this land will be taken from us.

There is much more than an echo of the words of Joshua as he addressed the children of Israel shortly before his passing.

Joshua 23:12-16 says: “Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you. And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, and not one thing hath failed thereof. Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the Lord your God promised you; so shall the Lord bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the Lord your God hath given you. When ye have transgressed the covenant of the Lord your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you.”

Arlene Foster and Jeffrey Donaldson would do well to pay heed to those words of Joshua and so would all who profess Christ in this country.

Where do your first loyalties lie?

Is it with the DUP? The Church of Ireland? The Presbyterian Church? The Royal British Legion? The Orange Order?

Or do your first loyalties lie with the almighty, all powerful, all seeing, all knowing, prayer hearing and prayer answering God of heaven?

He is the one true and living God and we must serve him with all of our being.

We would do well to remember the words of God to Solomon.

1 Chronicles 28:9: “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.”

Church of Ireland Bishop John McDowell preaches from Apocrypha at Remembrance Service

Romans 10:17: “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

One of the chief architects of ecumenical deceit in our country, the Church Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Reverend (Right Eejit!) John McDowell, has further deepened his betrayal of Christ by preaching from the Apocrypha at a Remembrance Sunday service in the Church of Ireland cathedral in Enniskillen.

This outrageous cleric used the Apocrypha, a collection of books rejected by any true Protestant, and indeed many non Protestants, as not being the Word of God and laden with contradictions and historical inaccuracies, as the basis for his sermon in St Macartin’s Cathedral in the Fermanagh town.

The Apocrypha is a totally unreliable set of writings used by the Roman Catholic Church to try to justify such blasphemous teachings as prayers for the dead, the Mass and purgatory.

Yet these writings, which are most assuredly NOT God’s Word, were used as the basis for Right Eejit John McDowell’s message last Sunday morning.

A minister’s job is to point people to Christ, imploring them to have the like precious faith as they.

The verse at the top of this article points out how we are to come to faith in Christ.

We can’t put our faith in Him unless we know who He is and we are to discover who God is through His Word.

However, Right Eejit John McDowell has used that which is not God’s Word to form the basis for his message, preaching from 1 Maccabees.

What this does is serve to endorse the Apocrypha as a whole, with all its false teachings.

It is interesting and relevant to note that none of the books of the Apocrypha are referenced at any stage in the New Testament, despite vast swathes of the Old Testament being referred to.

It was merely a Papish directive which saw the Apocrypha included in their Bible.

For the nitpickers who will seek to point out the original edition of the King James Version of the Bible included the Apocrypha between the Old and New Testaments, they were never accepted as part of the canon of Holy Scripture, but rather it was thought some of the historical detail might be of use to readers.

This view was then changed and the Apocrypha books were removed from later editions.

However, Right Eejit John McDowell clearly prefers the Papist methods, although of course he is no stranger to Romanist sympathising.

Each year he issues a joint Christmas message alongside the Roman Catholic bishop of Clogher.

And he earlier this year was a joint guest of honour at a Church of Ireland event alongside a former Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher, Joseph Duffy, which you can read about by clicking here.

This Papist, in a damning report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children was found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”.

It also says there was “an unacceptable delay” in taking action against one priest, while it was also reported that Bishop Joseph Duffy’s delay came despite concerns being raised of a “credible allegation” in his Clogher diocese.

So this is the sort of company the Right Eejit John McDowell has chosen to keep and thus his abandoning of Biblical values and of God’s Word in favour of the wisdom of men and the Apocrypha will lead many others down the path to destruction.

This situation was seen in the days of Hosea, where the lack of diligence from those in high spiritual roles saw the people suffer.

Hosea 4:6-9: “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.”

Oh how much ignorance there is in the land of Ulster today, where many who would even call themselves Christian believe it is ok to fill themselves with alcohol, believe dressing in any way they please to meet with God is ok, believe sodomy is acceptable to God in any way, and worse still, in the church, believe sharing church services with the reprobate Roman Catholic Church is admirable or believe it is ok to pick and choose which parts of the Bible are to be believed.

These problems are largely attributable to the compromisers, the apostates, the ecumenists and the deceivers like Right Eejit John McDowell.

When the priests err, so too do the people, as can be seen in the passage we have quoted from in Hosea.

But one of the signs of the tremendous Pentecost revival of the New Testament can be seen in Acts 6:7, which says: “And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.”

Were we in an age where “a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith”, Ulster would not be in the wretched spiritual state it is in.

And we wouldn’t have heretics like Right Eejit John McDowell standing in lofty places spewing out his filth and shame.

We would encourage anyone reading this who might have been present at that service or who might be involved with his church to separate themselves from it and to confront your minister, asking him (for the Bible says it must be a man) why they stand by and tolerate such a brazen enemy of the cause of Christ to rule over him and, therefore, have the spiritual rule over you.

It is surely time to separate unto Christ, and to go “without the camp, bearing his reproach” (Hebrews 13:13).

Noted Papist ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy speaks in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church

The well known emissary of papal deceit, ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy (pictured, above), was guest of honour on Tuesday night (13th November) in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church.

The Passionist priest was in attendance at a meeting of the Causeway Coast Peace Group, which sows its ecumenical seeds of compromise on the north coast of Northern Ireland.

Ballycastle Presbyterian Church is a habitual venue for all manner of disgraceful ecumenical activity, and regularly plays host to the outrageous ‘Ballycastle Prayer Partnership’, a monthly gathering of attendees of the Presbyterian, Church of Ireland and Romanist churches in the town.

Not only that, but in 2014 the minister of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church, Rev John Stanbridge, invited in to his church the Papist ‘Focolare Movement’, a group which functions to spread the worship of Mary.

The Service of Prayer for Christian Unity was held as part of the ‘Focolare Movement’s’ Mariapolis.

Mariapolis means ‘city of Mary’, and wherever such events are held that place becomes a ‘city of Mary’ for that time, meaning Rev John Stanbridge (pictured, below) blasphemously made his church part of the ‘city of Mary’.

Given his constant rampant ecumenism and rebellion against God, it should be no surprise to see Rev John Stanbridge facilitating the appearance of a Papist in the church he has the charge over.

However, that makes it no less a grave offence against God and that makes it no less worthy of condemnation.

We have referred to this verse on numerous occasions but that’s because the instruction contained in Ephesians 5:11 remains totally relevant to all professing believers today.

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

We are to condemn and criticise, or reprove, the unfruitful works of darkness, which Rome is, with its blasphemous false gospel of works-based salvation and its manifold other blasphemies.

However, that warning clearly means nothing to Rev John Stanbridge, who repeatedly invites Papists to participate in and lead meetings there in Ballycastle Presbyterian Church.

Lest he should read this or any other apologists for ecumenical compromise and opt to nitpick, we are aware and have stated above the meeting is being held under the auspices of the Causeway Coast Peace Group, an overtly ecumenical grouping.

However, Rev John Stanbridge would be well within his rights to prevent this outrageous meeting taking place, though of course, for obvious reasons, that wasn’t going to happen.

We consider it necessary to clarify who organised the meeting itself, given the pedantry of the ‘Rev’ Nancy Cubitt, so-called ‘minister’ of Bushmills Presbyterian Church, which is not far from Ballycastle.

‘Rev’ Nancy Cubitt contacted us after we highlighted the church she has the charge over hosted an event where attendees went through a smutty study guide of the book of Ruth, put together by the utterly ungodly Corrymeela Community. Splitting hairs, she pointed out that ‘her’ church only hosted the meeting, rather than holding it. You can see the article and the relevant comments beneath it by clicking here.

Bushmills Presbyterian Church was the venue for that meeting. Who held the meeting? Causeway Coast Peace Group.

The Causeway Coast Peace Group also held a disgraceful ecumenical event in Ballintoy Parish Church, another nearby village, back in June, where Papist Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin was preaching.

So this is the calibre of grouping Rev John Stanbridge of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church and indeed ‘Rev’ Nancy Cubitt of Bushmills Presbyterian Church are bringing in among them.

And ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy, a well known Papist and ecumenist, is the calibre of character Rev John Stanbridge of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church is happy to have spewing out his false gospel on the premises of the church for which he is responsible.

Rev John Stanbridge is guilty of failing to protect his church and indeed its inhabitants, or congregation, from the enemies of Christ.

He is emphatically failing to follow the example set by Nehemiah when he was leading the building of the walls of Jerusalem.

Nehemiah 4:6-9 says: “So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work. But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth, And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.”

No watch is being set to protect the attendees of Ballycastle Presbyterian Church, Bushmills Presbyterian Church or indeed Ballintoy Parish Church from the overt ecumenists in their pulpits and in the Causeway Coast Peace Group.

Ministers are to be watchmen but God has a fearsome warning for those who fail to fulfil that solemn duty.

Ezekiel 3:17-18 says: “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”

Dear reader, don’t let your blood be required at the hand of a minister who is failing to warn you of the danger of engaging in conduct which meets with God’s condemnation.

Instead, follow His command to “come out from among them, and be ye separate” (2 Corinthians 6:17) and God promises He will receive you, and how much better it is to be accepted by God than to be accepted by man.

Presbyterian Moderator Rev Charles McMullen refuses to condemn sodomy as a sin

1 Samuel 2:30: “…for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”

The Presbyterian Moderator has refused to state whether or not he believes sodomy is a sin.

When asked in an interview with the Belfast Telegraph if he personally believed that homosexuality was sinful, Rev Charles McMullen said he was “not going to answer that”.

What a craven act of cowardice!

The role of a minister is to tell the truth to the people, regardless of whether he thinks the people want to hear it.

Based on other comments Rev Charles McMullen made during the interview, it would appear he probably does think homosexuality is contrary to God’s Word (how anyone could think otherwise is frankly remarkable), but he clearly lacked the courage to come out and say it.

And what a disgraceful situation that he consciously refuses to take his stand for Christ.

Rev Charles McMullen is utterly ignoring the charge laid down to preachers in 2 Timothy 4:2, which says: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

Condemnation of sodomy, which God has called an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22) is very much out of season in this day of apostasy, but Rev Charles McMullen has a God ordained responsibility to speak the truth.

When he doesn’t do that he consciously chooses to dishonour God.

In addition, as a minister, Rev Charles McMullen has a solemn responsibility to point out sin and to warn of the judgment to come for those who persist in it.

When a minister fails to do that, then the blood of the sinner is on their hands.

Ezekiel 33:2-9: “Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. 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. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. 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. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”

Any homosexual who read that article would not have been caused an uncomfortable moment by Rev Charles McMullen’s non-answer.

How much blood of homosexuals persisting in that which God’s Word has said is “against nature” is on the hands of Rev Charles McMullen?

Indeed, Rev Charles McMullen’s vow of silence on the matter marks him out as the epitome of the dumb dog preachers condemned by God.

Isaiah 56:10: “His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.”

Throughout the course of the interview, Rev Charles McMullen also rejects the Biblical prohibition placed on permitting the unsaved to partake in the Lord’s table.

Rev Charles McMullen said: “Nobody is being prevented from coming into Sunday services or taking Communion as the Lord’s table is open to all.

“And all of our churches need to be welcoming places where no one is excluded from coming forward to worship or to receive pastoral care or to take Communion together.”

Let’s compare this with what the Bible has to say about taking Communion.

1 Corinthians 11:27-29: “Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.”

So not only is Rev Charles McMullen guilty of the blood of sodomites he refuses to warn of the sinfulness of their lifestyle, but he is also encouraging them, and other unsaved people, to be “guilty of the body and blood of the Lord”.

How shameful that is.

Of course, Rev Charles McMullen is well acquainted with associating with those who are guilty of the body and blood of Jesus.

As soon as he was named the new Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Rev Charles McMullen was falling over himself to invite himself to meet “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

The Pope is the man who heads up the utterly evil Roman Catholic system, which in its chapels throughout the world, every day offers up a false, blasphemous sacrifice of Christ in its “dangerous deceit” of the Mass.

Not that that matters to Rev Charles McMullen as he would far rather join in with the leader of the most evil organisation on earth than warn poor lost sodomites bound for hell of the eternal danger they are in.

Praise God sodomites, and indeed anyone can be saved by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

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

The effeminate and the abusers of themselves with mankind can be saved, indeed were saved in Corinth.

However, you won’t hear that positive message from Rev Charles McMullen as he is too busy trying not to offend people, flattering them all the way to hell.

John 8:31-32: “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Emmanuel leader Alain Emerson glorifies Jesuit founder and Counter Reformation leader, Ignatius of Loyola

The lead pastor of the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area, Alain Emerson, has glorified the founder of the notorious Roman Catholic Jesuit Order, Ignatius of Loyola, and led his church’s followers in following his practices.

On this page we have previously described Alain Emerson as Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, due to his repeated association with Romanism.

This is a moniker he has well and truly earned.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has previously spoken in a Roman Catholic chapel in Belfast (the scene of which is pictured below) as part of the ecumenical ‘Four Corners Festival’, at which he endorsed the ecumenical, anti-Christian, ritualistic, Taizé style of prayer.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has organised an ecumenical prayer initiative called ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ under the auspices of the 24-7 Prayer movement, a grouping whose leader, Pete Greig, is helping the Roman Catholic Church in Austria gain more followers.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has spoken at a meeting of the ecumenical Ballymena Church Members Forum, a group comprised of Romanists and whose meetings are advertised in the Roman Catholic parish bulletin for Ballymena.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has endorsed the ecumenical ‘Heal The Land’ prayer initiative, which a Roman Catholic group also endorsed, with a video featuring its leader encouraging Roman Catholics to attend being uploaded on the ‘Heal The Land’ facebook page.

All of those things were disgraceful in their own right for the leader of a supposedly God-exalting church to be engaging in.

However, this latest act of Popery, and it can be called nothing else, is by far the most grievous and anti-Scriptural activity he has engaged in yet.

In fact, we would go so far as to say it is the single worst act of betrayal of true Christianity we have came across yet on this page. It is truly outrageous.

In the meeting, which he held on Sunday night past, 4th November in the Lurgan Emmanuel Church (there are two, the other being in the nearby town of Portadown), he led his followers in practising the ‘Examen’, a prayer ritual devised by Ignatius of Loyola.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson also extolled the virtues of Ignatius of Loyola, who is the founder and original leader of the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits, the order which led the Counter Reformation under the Pope’s authority.

This is the group which sought to snuff out the light of the gospel which God had gloriously unveiled through Martin Luther and many others during the Protestant Reformation.

They did it by any means possible, and the Jesuits were leading figures in the bloody Spanish Inquisition, in which untold millions of Protestants, Jews and Muslims were tortured, maimed and murdered.

It is noteworthy that Bertrand Russell, a Noble Prize winning author and historian, in his ‘A History of Western Philosophy’, stated this of the Jesuits: “Protestant success, at first amazingly rapid, was checked mainly as a result of Loyola’s creation of the Jesuit order.”

So this is the grouping which, responding to the rise of true Christianity, ie Protestantism, acted to ensure the enlightenment of precious, never-dying souls, was restricted as much as possible, and they were noted to be successful in doing so, and thus leading millions of souls to hell.

And Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is teaching his church’s adherents to follow in their founder’s footsteps.

During his sermon (which you can hear online by visiting their website, clicking on the ‘resources’ tab and then on podcasts), he says to his audience about “a dude called Ignatius of Loyola”.

And this is what Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson then says a couple of minutes later about him.

“He had some profound mystical experiences, and it was in those mystical experiences that he wrote what’s called his ‘Spiritual Practices’.

“Now the reason I want to say this is, I feel that we are having some profound times with Jesus these days and I think there’s more profound times with Jesus to come, where He wants to completely undo us with His love.”

We’ll just cut into Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s spiel here and say not to worry if you don’t understand what the previous paragraph means, because it means nothing. It’s gibberish intended to sound deep and spiritual so as to impress those listening, but it really is as deep as a teaspoon of water.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson continues: “And when that happens you have to steward that well and you have to have certain practices in place that don’t take that for granted. That allow us to engage with that and train others to do that and this is what Ignatius is doing.

“He has encountered something fresh of the Lord.

“It’s through him that when he goes to university in Paris and he starts to gather a few friends and they start to pray and get passionate for Jesus together that they start this, what we know as the Jesuits, or the Society of Jesus, which has gone on to send missionaries all over the world.”

We’ll just point out that at no stage has Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson stated that the Jesuits are a Roman Catholic order, and at no point does he even use the words “Roman Catholic”. This is quite deliberate and it becomes clear this is quite deliberate with his next breath.

He says: “So remember this is probably round the time of the Reformation, so they’re all trying to work it out.”

They’re all trying to work it out?!? Is that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s assessment of the Reformation period?

The Reformation was not about “trying to work it out”, the Reformation was when the shackles of Rome’s false gospel of salvation by works and devotion to her was thrown off gloriously throughout large chunks of Europe. It was God moving mightily to the saving of countless precious souls.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson also says there it was “probably round the time of the Reformation”. He knows rightly that it was or he wouldn’t have mentioned it in the first place. In his sermon he points out the year Ignatius of Loyola was born so he knows exactly when he was active.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson continues further: “There’s been huge problems with the church of that day. The Reformation has been a reaction to that but also within that there was certain moments and certain men like this who wanted the real thing, who wanted Jesus more than anything else pushed into his heart, pushed into his presence, were changed and transformed and led others in it.”

Ignatius of Loyola “wanted the real thing?” Ignatius of Loyola determinedly did not want the real thing as his mission from the Pope was to crush the doctrine of salvation by faith alone and all who believed in it.

And so on the heresy goes from Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, as he says: “I love the fact that then he writes the ‘Spiritual Practices’.

“Isn’t it brilliant in that time of, you know, history, that people kind of argued over things like how to become like Jesus. Today we argue over theology, what we believe and what we don’t believe. In that day people argued over what was the best way or practice, or set of exercises to become like Jesus.

“That would be a far better argument, wouldn’t it? It would be a far better argument to go, well, is it this way or is it that way? That was the argument, and while it mightn’t have been nice all the time, at least it was about how to become like Jesus, not about who’s right.”

The Reformation period was precisely about theology and what was right and what was wrong.

The Bible clearly states salvation is “not of works” (Ephesians 2:9) and that is the principle on which the Reformers stood.

Rome states that any who believes in the doctrine of salvation by faith alone are to be “anathema”, pronouncing their curses on such as heretics.

The Reformation was absolutely about what we believe.

Rome had no interest in being like Jesus, it was only interested in its own superiority and hegemony throughout Europe.

And to say “it mightn’t have been nice all the time” is not even an understatement, it’s a disgraceful and wilful effort to mislead his followers.

The Jesuits figured prominently in the murder and maiming of millions during the centuries-long Inquisition held by the Roman Catholic Church.

They struck out against true Christianity and were famed for their torture of those who disagreed with the false religion of Rome.

Yet Alain Emerson wants his followers to copy the ‘Spiritual Practices’ of that bloodthirsty order’s founder. He says “he loves the fact” that Ignatius of Loyola wrote them.

These ‘Spiritual Practices’ contain the worship of Mary, the reciting of the ‘Hail Mary’ as well as instructing people to do the rosary. Perhaps this will be next at Emmanuel Church in Lurgan and Portadown?

Has Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson been preparing the way with all his ecumenical conduct to allow such practices to take place?

He certainly has attendees of Emmanuel taking part in the spiritual practices of one of the most evil men who ever lived.

Perhaps a hint of his admiration of Jesuitry can be seen through his Twitter posting from 21 August, where he quotes a noted Jesuit priest, called Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured, below). Interestingly, the same Papist was quoted by the preacher of error, Bishop Michael Curry, in his wedding ‘sermon’ during the marriage ceremony of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The worship of Mary is nowhere taught in the Bible. In fact, the Bible is clear we are to “have no other gods” in Exodus 20:3.

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

We don’t go through Mary to get to God, despite what Ignatius of Loyola claimed.

Indeed, on a website called ‘Jesuits in Ireland’, his devotion to Mary is clearly stated.

In an article entitled ‘Mary – How she made a new man of Ignatius’, it says: “As for the founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, he had such a lasting devotion to Our Lady that we could say every month was Mary’s month for Ignatius. Mary played a vital role in the calling and vocation of Ignatius. Long before he was ordained a priest or founded the Jesuits, he had already developed a deep affection for the Blessed Virgin Mary”.

Let us state clearly, this is from an article written by Jesuits celebrating Ignatius of Loyola. Mary worship is a despicable heresy and rejection of God’s Word. But it is in the ‘Spiritual Practices’ of Ignatius of Loyola, the practices Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is imploring his followers to adhere to.

If you or anyone you know is caught up in the church ran by this man, we implore you to withdraw from it immediately and for you to implore everyone you know involved in it to do the same.

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

Teaching such falsehoods makes someone a false teacher, such as were warned of in 2 Peter 2:1-3.

Those verses say: “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”

Is not Alain Emerson privily bringing in damnable heresies? How many people in Emmanuel Church on Sunday night were wise to his deceits? We would venture to say there were very few, if any.

Alain Emerson carefully refused to say the words “Roman Catholic” throughout. He deliberately misled those listening about the Reformation and Loyola’s inextricable links to opposing it. This is because he knows there would have been those present most likely for whom alarm bells would have been going off.

Mind you, the word Jesuit should surely have been enough to sound alarm bells in people’s minds. The current Pope is a Jesuit, something which was dwelled upon at the time the current Pope took over that blasphemous position.

But those in attendance are the many following his “pernicious ways” and this is leading those who follow it to one place – damnation.

What a frightful thought that is.

We would encourage everyone reading this to go back to our Facebook page and share this to warn as many as possible of the dreadful heresy being preached in that church to try to pull the attendees as brands from the burning out of the clutches of this grievous false prophet.

This is an urgent matter, and one not to be delayed upon, for the precious souls of men and women are at stake.

Ezekiel 12:21-28 highlights how we don’t know when God will move in judgment against those prophesying lies and those who choose to believe them.

“And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth? Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord God; I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision. For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I am the Lord: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord God. Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times that are far off. Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord God.”

Let us not be too late in our warnings to those who are under the influence of church leaders teaching such damnable heresies as the practices of an evil, bloodthirsty, Mary-worshipping, Papist.

Ballymena Presbyterian church invites Papists to ecumenical prayer meeting

The High Kirk Presbyterian Church in Ballymena has held an ecumenical prayer meeting to which practising Roman Catholics, who offer prayer to Mary and to dead so-called ‘Saints’, were warmly invited.

Entitled ‘Prayers of Blessing for Ballymena’, the event hosted by the allegedly Protestant church was advertised in the Roman Catholic parish bulletin in the County Antrim town.

Demonstrating the continued unchanged nature of the Church of Rome, the Roman Catholic faithful in the town are also advised in the same bulletin, just a couple of lines down, that they can gain a “plenary indulgence” between the 1st and 8th of November by “visiting a cemetery or church and praying for the dead”.

The issue of indulgences was the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back” for Martin Luther 501 years ago and prompted the then Roman Catholic monk to nail his 95 Theses to the door of the Church in Wittenberg.

And over half a millennium later, Rome is still offering its false gospel of works-based salvation to its poor, deluded adherents.

Not only that, they are still teaching the blasphemy of offering prayers for the dead, something which is utterly contrary to the Bible’s teaching.

As we have said in previous articles, there is a fine Scriptural example in the story of David and his adulterous child with Bathsheba.

Remember, that David, despite his sin (and we are all sinners), was called a man after God’s own heart.

His view, when his child died, as articulated in 2 Samuel 12:22-23, was: “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.”

David ceased to petition God for his child when he died, as he knew there was no point, yet Rome is to this day blasphemously claiming, and this particular indulgence is coming from the Pope himself, that prayers for the dead are profitable both for the deceased and for the person offering the prayer.

And this is what High Kirk Presbyterian Church in Ballymena is seeking to associate themselves with. Shame on them.

The ecumenical prayer meeting they hosted was held on Thursday, 1 November, the day after Reformation Day, and the 1st of November just so happens to have been the first day of the week of indulgence granted by “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

So there could well have been those practising Romanists who had offered prayers for the dead in a Papist graveyard before heading across town to High Kirk Presbyterian Church to offer prayers there.

What a dreadfully confused situation this is.

Adding to the confusion is the question of to whom were the prayers offered in High Kirk Presbyterian Church? Rome encourages the praying to Mary and to dead ‘Saints’.

The Bible teaches in 1 Timothy 2:5 that “there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

“No man cometh unto the Father, but by me”, says Jesus in John 14:6.

But here we have Romanists, who are told by their religious leaders to offer up all manner of polluted worship, coming into a so-called Protestant church and being encouraged to take part in what is clearly an ecumenical prayer meeting.

There will be no true blessing in Ballymena while church leaders reject the Biblical principle of separation from the workers of evil.

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

This church, whose minister is Rev Norman Cameron (pictured, top), has a track record for ecumenical compromise, with last year’s Christmas service featuring a performance by the choir of a local Roman Catholic primary school, St Brigid’s, while in 2013 they hosted an event called ‘City Changing Unity’, with that event description saying its target was “transforming communities through inter-church partnerships”.

This is brazenly ecumenical activity.

As the week of plenary indulgences proves, Rome has moved not one iota from its anti-Scriptural stance of more than 500 years ago.

Sadly, so many formerly Protestant churches have departed from the true faith and have rejected God and His Word.

We don’t see practitioners of other faiths, and they false faiths, conceding ground the way these lily-livered alleged Protestants are.

Let us fearlessly take our stand, hold fast our glorious Protestant heritage and never give in to the enemies of the gospel.

Jeremiah 2:11: “Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.”

Jeremiah 2:32: “Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.”

Arlene Foster congratulates lesbian Scottish Tory leader and her ‘partner’ on birth of child

Genesis 1:27-28: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

Genesis 2:18, 21-22: “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”

It is a foundational principle of God’s creation that we should “be fruitful, and multiply”.

It is also a foundational principle of God’s creation that he made man and woman to be different from each other, and that he made them for each other.

It is a biological fact that two people of the same gender CANNOT “be fruitful, and multiply” in the natural way. Therefore, unnatural methods must be sought.

And that is just what has happened in the case of Scottish Conservative Party leader Ruth Davidson and her ‘partner’, Jen Wilson.

We are not intimately aware of how the process was worked out, nor do we desire to know. However, what we do know, and what any sane person would concede, is that two women, or two men, cannot create new life.

Yet DUP leader Arlene Foster (pictured, top), a professing Christian, has seen fit to congratulate two lesbians, acting wholly outside the will of God, on such an occasion as this.

Taking to Twitter to express her delight at and support for such ungodliness, Arlene Foster said: “New life is wonderful. We can all remember our first cuddle. Many congratulations.”

As we said before, the natural order created by God is a foundational principle of the Bible. It is contained in the first two chapters of the Bible in the creation story.

There should be no professing Christian who is not fully aware of this, and you can be certain Arlene Foster is indeed absolutely aware of this.

Yet she has chosen to publicly act in a way that repudiates this most basic Biblical tenet.

Of course she has previously chosen to do the same.

Back in June, we highlighted her attendance at an event celebrating the ‘contribution’ of various sodomites to society in Northern Ireland, while she also attended a Muslim religious celebration, even receiving a Muslim henna tattoo on her hand. She attended a GAA match, an organisation which to this day boasts many trophies and grounds named after Irish republican Roman Catholic terrorists, on a Sunday, claiming she had received the permission of her bishop. Given she is a member of the Church of Ireland and lives in County Fermanagh, that would presumably mean her bishop is the enthusiastic ecumenist, the Right Eejit John McDowell, hardly a great person from whom to take direction.

One of her party’s MLAs, Paula Bradley (pictured, above with Arlene Foster), co-sponsored the same sodomite-exalting event that Arlene Foster addressed and went one further by adding her name as a sponsor to a reprehensible drag queen event at Stormont, with no apparent condemnation from her leader, ie Arlene Foster.

And now she has given her blessing to the ungodly notion of a same-sex couple having children together.

We will remind Arlene Foster again of what the Bible has to say about this.

Matthew 19:4-6: “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

A man shall leave his father and his mother, Jesus said, and shall cleave to his wife.

Jesus did not countenance or allow for a union between two people of the same gender, nor did he countenance or allow for an individual having two parents of the same gender.

We have seen many comments from the deluded, the deceived and the deceivers who would try to claim that Jesus would have been ok with, nay, supported same sex unions, despite there being not one shred of evidence to support such a bald assertion.

Here we have a concrete case of Jesus indicating that the only true and proper marriage union and parental arrangement being that of a man and a woman.

He then follows that comment up by saying: “What God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Jesus, in this instance, was talking about divorce, but it could as easily and as well be applied to this situation with regards the union of man and woman. That which God has instituted ought not to be disregarded, changed or trampled over at the whim of the currently trendy opinion.

Why Arlene Foster felt the need to even comment on the birth of this child is not entirely clear, perhaps she is too keen to cosy up with the Conservative Party as they are political allies in Westminster.

However, Arlene Foster, as a professing Christian, ought to have her first alliance to God.

1 Samuel 12:24: “Only fear the Lord, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.”
