24-7 Prayer leader Pete Greig helping Roman Catholic Church lure more people in

Leading charismatic figure Pete Greig, a friend of ecumenical groups such as the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area and Causeway Coast Vineyard in Coleraine, has spoken in a Romanist chapel to help advise the Roman Catholic Church how to lure more people back into its clutches.

Pete Greig (pictured, top) is a leading figure in the organisation 24-7 Prayer, an ecumenical initiative openly and unashamedly promoting ecumenical compromise with Rome.

This is the same organisation which Emmanuel lead pastor Alain Emerson heads up in Ireland, something we previously focused on when highlighting Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson promoting the ecumenical ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative, which has the backing of the Pope, under the auspices of 24-7 Prayer Ireland.

Indeed, Pete Greig was one of the ‘celebrity’ speakers at Emmanuel Church’s recent ‘Tobar’ Conference.

And just a few weeks ago, Pete Greig was addressing the diocesan assembly of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna held in St Stephen’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in the Austrian capital.

This was reported on the Roman Catholic news outlet, ‘The Tablet’.

He had been invited at the behest of the Roman Catholic cardinal, Christoph Schonborn, who told the same conference that ecumenical dialogue with churches like those represented by Pete Greig was “imperative”.

The day previously, Pete Greig had been the main speaker at the assembly.

Tweeting afterwards, he said: “Truly wonderful time in Vienna addressing 1,700 bishops, nuns, priests, laity from every church in the Archdiocese. Extraordinary signs of renewal – ‘unthinkable 9 years ago’ says the Cardinal. Not least letting a mug like me loose amongst them.”

Faux modesty aside, though of course many a truth is spoken in jest, Pete Greig has openly admitted to and indeed appears to be rejoicing in helping give the cause of Rome a boost in Austria – what a shameful situation.

The Roman Catholic Church is an anti-Christian organisation which denies the gospel message of salvation by faith alone. How anyone who claims to be a Christian should want to associate with and indeed encourage Rome is truly a mystery.

What is certain is that the Bible rejects such conduct.

2 John v 9-11 says: “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

Pete Greig is making himself a partner of the evil deeds of Rome by acting in the way that he has.

The article from ‘The Tablet’ gives away why the Roman Catholic Church in Astria has enlisted the help of useful idiots like Pete Greig.

It states that, in 2011, Cardinal Schonborn had “invited Free Church (a name given to less traditional so-called Protestant churches) leaders to a meeting at Passau (a German town) as he wanted to know why the Free Churches were growing so fast. It was after that meeting seven years ago that the Cardinal had decided that the Free Churches should be regarded ‘as partners and not opponents’.”

Ecumenism, then, was identified as the route to a reinvigoration of the Roman Catholic Church in Austria.

This is backed up by a further quote in the article from Cardinal Schonborn.

He said: “Catholics and members of the Free Churches must learn from one another without losing their own identity.”

So the same man who describes ecumenism as “imperative” also wants to avoid the Roman Catholic Church losing its own identity.

This is indicative of the attitude of Rome in such matters – they may change their approach but they never change their nature. That is what Vatican II was about, the chief feature of which was a drive towards ecumenical unity.

Jeremiah 13:23 asks, and answers, the question: “Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.”

Rome is so ingrained in its sin that one could as easily change their skin colour as Rome could throw off its evil customs and doctrines.

A week after Pete Greig’s appearance in the home of the papacy in Vienna, the same venue played host to a prayer meeting jointly held by a group called the ‘Loretto Movement’ and what is described in the article as “the Free Church 24-7 Prayer Initiative”.

Pete Greig is called a ‘Team Leader’ in the 24-7 Prayer organisation and is seen as the founder of the organisation.

The Loretto Movement is a Roman Catholic youth organisation currently enjoying significant popularity in Austria and which is inextricably linked with 24-7 Prayer.

Here are a few excerpts from articles on the 24-7 Prayer website.

“A team from 24-7 Prayer and Alpha recently spent a remarkable weekend celebrating Pentecost with the Loretto movement in Austria. A few years ago the leaders read ‘Red Moon Rising’ (the handbook of 24-7 Prayer, written by, you guessed it, Pete Greig) and 24-7 Prayer Rooms are now at the heart of Loretto’s vision and growth.

“The Salzburg celebration is the big event of the Loretto calendar and is growing year by year. Over 5,000 young people crammed into Salzburg Cathedral. Pete Greig spoke on the Saturday morning on the importance of prayer and the local radio reported that it was the first time for many years that a non Catholic had spoken in the Cathedral” (article dated 29 May, 2013).

“Years ago, one of the leaders of Loretto was given a copy of Pete Greig’s book, Red Moon Rising. Since then, Loretto communities have added weeks of 24-7 Prayer to their rhythms.

“A fast friendship between Loretto Movement and 24-7 Prayer was born and over the last few years we have spent much time with each other, visiting each other’s communities and attending each other’s events.

“We’re so excited for the European Conference in Vienna this October in partnership with Loretto. Catholics and Protestants in the upper room of prayer, glorifying God and bringing forth His kingdom together” (article dated 11 September, 2018).

Roman Catholics and Protestants praying together – to whom are they praying? Rome teaches of intercession being made by Mary and various other saints, the Bible teaches, and true Protestants believe there is “one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).

This is a frightening situation, where a so-called Christian is glorying in aiding the cause of the Roman Catholic Church, which has damned untold millions to hell through its false gospel of works.

And the man behind all this, Pete Greig, is welcomed with open arms into many churches in our land who claim to be Christ exalting and his 24-7 Prayer initiative is followed by so many churches.

As we have stated already, this includes the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area, who had Pete Greig at their Tobar Conference, held in June.

This also includes the Causeway Coast Vineyard, the church whose former lead pastor, Alan Scott, (pictured, above) said during his tenure there that he was “all in” with the Pope. A key backer of that church is Evangelical Alliance leader Peter Lynas, a man who repeatedly engages in ecumenical activity with Rome.

Pete Greig also has spoken in Lisburn Cathedral (Church of Ireland), a church which every Easter takes part in an ecumenical walk of witness with, among others, the Roman Catholic Church in that city.

And it will come as no surprise to long time readers that it was Pete Greig who prompted the pathetic, irreverent, childish crowd-surfing act in Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, where Rev John Dickinson (pictured, below), the man who endorsed the lesbian ‘Christian’ LGBT campaigner Vicky Beeching, was carried out of the church by the poor dupes in the congregation. Pete Greig was the guest speaker on that infamous night.

We would implore all readers to share this article with anyone they know who may be caught up in any church which takes anything to do with the 24-7 Prayer Initiative and anyone they know who may be caught up with any of the churches mentioned above and to encourage themselves to separate from them.

1 Corinthians 15:33: “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”

1 John 4:1: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

Get your Muslim tattoo with Causeway Coast Vineyard

Causeway Coast Vineyard is truly a leading figure in the charismatic, ecumenical and easy-believist movements in Northern Ireland.

And it has taken another remarkable step in its rejection of true Christianity at a recent family “Summer Street Party” it held in Coleraine, as it advertised one of the ‘attractions’ on offer as being “henna and kids tattoos”.

The subject of henna tattoos is one we addressed briefly when we examined DUP leader Arlene Foster’s unChristian diary entries in June as she visited Belfast’s Islamic Centre as part of their Eid celebrations before speaking at an event honouring sodomites in Northern Ireland.

While at the Islamic Centre, Arlene Foster got a henna tattoo, and you can see her smiling as she receives it below.

As we said at that time, the non-permanent marking (an example of which is featured at the top of this article) has its roots in the polytheistic religion of Hinduism, but has more recently been adopted by Muslims.

Also known as ‘mehendi’, it is originally a Hindu practice and its use “is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books”, according to Wikipedia.

So it is something advocated in the Hindu ‘bible’.

Wikipedia continues by saying they are “intended to be a symbolic representation of the outer and the inner sun. Vedic customs are centred on the idea of awakening the ‘inner light’.”

So it is something used as part of sun worship, an utterly unbiblical pursuit which is a key part of Hindu worship and which is condemned in the strongest possible terms by God.

God pronounced the most fierce of judgments on such blasphemy and apostasy by the children of Israel.

Jeremiah 8:1-3 says: “At that time, saith the Lord, they shall bring out the bones of the kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves: And they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all the host of heaven, whom they have loved, and whom they have served, and after whom they have walked, and whom they have sought, and whom they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried; they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth. And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue of them that remain of this evil family, which remain in all the places whither I have driven them, saith the Lord of hosts.”

The practice has been adopted by some Muslims and is now used fairly widely. Islam is of course a pagan religion and denies the deity of Christ, saying he was just another prophet like Muhammad.

This denies the gospel of the Bible and removes the hope of salvation from its adherents as the only way to heaven is through the blood of Jesus Christ.

Isn’t it then a strange thing for Causeway Coast Vineyard, supposedly a Christian fellowship, to be specifically advertising (see below)? Indeed, isn’t it a strange thing for them to be doing at all?

The Bible warns against the marking of the body in any event, though the tattoos on offer for children at the event will undoubtedly be those which are easily washed off.

This is what the Bible has to say about the marking of the body.

It says in Leviticus 19:28: “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.”

That is fairly straightforward, isn’t it?

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 instructs us that our body belongs to God and we ought not to mar or mark that which belongs to God. Those verses say: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

So why is the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church advertising not just tattoos, but henna tattoos, markings synonymous with pagan religions such as Hinduism and Islam?

That, of course, is a question for Causeway Coast Vineyard to answer.

It would not be the first pagan religion to be embraced by Causeway Coast Vineyard as its former leader, Alan Scott (pictured, below), said he was “all in” with the Pope of Rome. You can see our article on the matter by clicking here.

Then of course you have Peter Lynas, the leader of the Evangelical Alliance and a senior figure in Causeway Coast Vineyard.

Just last week he was bemoaning the fact there are still actual Protestants in the country who are opposed to compromise with the pagan corruption of Christianity which is the Roman Catholic Church.

He dutifully jumped to the defence of Ulster Unionist Party MLA Robbie Butler, a deacon in Maghaberry Elim, saying it was “sad” that Protestants declared the outrageous decision of that professing Christian to meet with the Pope during his recent visit to Dublin.

Peter Lynas also previously stated how interested he was to hear what the Pope has to say on moral matters and issued a soppy valedictory statement following the death of arch-ecumenist Billy Graham, the man who told Roman Catholics coming to him for guidance to stay in the darkness from which they were seeking to break free.

And it was Peter Lynas, among others, who sought to promote this ‘Summer Street Party’ on his Twitter page, saying “this should be awesome”.

Mimicking paganism may be “awesome” to Peter Lynas, Causeway Coast Vineyard and the Evangelical Alliance, but it is most assuredly not in the eyes of God.

Deuteronomy 12:29-31: “When the Lord thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land; Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Thou shalt not do so unto the Lord thy God: for every abomination to the Lord, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods…”

Let us strive to remain faithful to God and avoid any practices which are opposed by His Word and remain a truly separated people.

Vineyard Church and Hope Community Church – more easy-believists back ecumenical ‘New Wine’ Conference

We have previously featured on ‘Protestant Revival’ numerous characters taking part in the ecumenical ‘New Wine’ Conference, which kicked off yesterday (Sunday) and runs through to this Friday, 13 July.

These have included Philip Emerson and Dave Wylie, two of the lead pastors of the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area and confirmed Church of Ireland ecumenists, Canons Henry Blair and Mark Harvey.

On the Conference’s website, they have listed literally dozens of speakers, and while we cannot focus on them all, for obvious reasons, there are some more individuals taking part of note.

These include several representatives of the Vineyard Church, including two who are or were heavily involved with the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church in Coleraine, County Londonderry.

This is of course the church whose former leader is Alan Scott, a man who, during a message he delivered at the Causeway Coast Vineyard, said he was “all in” with the Pope.

The other participant we wish to highlight is Rev Craig Cooney, minister at one of the new charismatic Church of Ireland plants springing up in numerous locations, this one called Hope Community Church, based in Craigavon.

Indeed, Rev Craig Cooney, prior to taking up his role in Craigavon, held the position of ‘Teaching Pastor’ for a year at the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church.

Before we go any further, we will demonstrate beyond contention the ecumenical nature of this event.

At the ‘New Wine’ Conference there will be at least three speakers from the Roman Catholic Church. They are Bishop Kevin Doran, the Bishop of the Elphin Diocese; Dr Fodhla McGrane of Clonard Monastery in west Belfast and Paddy Monaghan of the Evangelical Catholic Initiative.

The Roman Catholic Church is an anti-Christian organisation, and teaches numerous falsehoods, not least of which is its blasphemy of salvation by works and sacramental merit.

The Bible, however, teaches of a far simpler, greater salvation – through faith.

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

We cannot earn our salvation, which Rome still to this day teaches. One must only look at the Pope’s offer of plenary indulgences to those who attend his planned visit to the Republic of Ireland next month to see Rome has not moved one iota since the Reformation.

The matter of the Romanist deceit regarding salvation is the most grave of its manifold blasphemies, for they attempt to erect a bar between its followers and eternal glory in heaven.

And this is the key reason why so-called Protestant preachers and supposedly God-exalting church leaders should remain separate from perpetrators of such papal deceit.

God’s curse is on the Roman Catholic system, with its false gospel of works. Galatians 1:9 says: “As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

We are not to fellowship with or even extend good wishes to those who preach another gospel.

2 John 1:9-11: “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

By associating with such messengers of “that man of sin”, the Pope, Rev Craig Cooney and those representatives of the Vineyard Church are made partaker of their evil deeds.

Most observers of religious affairs in Northern Ireland will have probably heard of the controversy at Knocknamuckley Church of Ireland a few years ago, where the ludicrous conduct of Rev Alan Kilpatrick grabbed headlines in the country’s regional papers.

His highly irreverent style of dress in church, his abandonment of traditional worship, his bringing in of an interpretive dance troop on Easter Sunday 2015 and his links with the extreme Pentecostal movement, Bethel Supernatural Ministry, eventually led to him leaving the church, located between Portadown and Lurgan in County Armagh.

Given his list of transgressions, one would have expected a supposedly God-exalting church to have washed their hands of Rev Alan Kilpatrick.

However, the local diocese of the Church of Ireland instead allowed him to set up a new fellowship, which became Hope Community Church, based in Craigavon.

Rev Alan Kilpatrick left in 2017 and was then replaced by Rev Craig Cooney.

At his installation, a report on the Church of Ireland’s website quoted Rev Craig Cooney as saying he planned to “build on the great foundations laid by my predecessor, Rev Alan Kilpatrick”.

1 Corinthians 3:8-11 outlines the only sure foundation to God’s work.

It says: “Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Can it be said that Rev Alan Kilpatrick laid foundations in Jesus Christ? Based on the activities he supported and those he disregarded, we do not believe it can be said that he did.

Therefore the foundations Rev Craig Cooney is building upon are like the sand the foolish man built his house on.

On a side note, who was it who preached the message at Rev Craig Cooney’s installation in Hope Community Church? Rev David McClay, the leader of the ‘New Wine’ movement in Ireland.

Rev Craig Cooney, in his previous charge in Dublin at St Catherine’s Church of Ireland, also demonstrated his ecumenical desire by helping raise funds for the nearby Roman Catholic church, also called St Catherine’s.

A table quiz called ‘St Catherine’s United’ was held. We are told that, “at the end of the evening, the Rev Craig Cooney, minister of CORE, presented Father Niall Coughlin with a cheque for €2,000”.

We are further told that, speaking after the event, Rev Craig Cooney said: “Not only was a large amount of money raised, but more importantly, friendships have been forged which can be developed in the months and years ahead.”

Rev Craig Cooney was avowedly stating his desire to press ahead with ecumenical relationships, and he is certainly fulfilling that most unbiblical vow by speaking at the ‘New Wine’ Conference.

‘New Wine’ would also be a rather appropriate event for the Vineyard Church to be represented at and they are up to their necks in this conference.

Two people with significant links to Causeway Coast Vineyard, Scott McNamara and Colleen McSorley, are to address the conference and two leaders in the ‘Desert Vineyard’, Jonathan Rue, who appears to be a celebrity draw to the event, and Joshua Miller.

The fact all four of these characters are attending this event with Papists seems to be consistent with Alan Scott’s shameful declaration that he is “all in” with the Pope.

Indeed, Colleen McSorley regularly retweets the ramblings of Alan Scott on Twitter, as he follows the time-honoured tradition of the charismatic of sharing something he believes to be profound, but is in fact as deep as your fingernail.

For those looking true meaning and depth, we can look in just one direction, and that is to Christ.

Romans 11:33: “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!”

Vineyard Church leader Alan Scott says Mary worship is fine and that he’s ‘all in’ with the Pope

The lead pastor of the Causeway Coast Vineyard church in Coleraine has declared his solidarity with the Pope, saying he is “all in” with that man of sin, and son of perdition.

Alan Scott (pictured, top) is the leader of the charismatic grouping and he has firmly nailed his colours to the Romanist mast with his shameful comments.

In the message he delivered at a meeting in the Causeway Coast Vineyard last year, which has only recently been brought to our attention, he said he could “journey” spiritually with the Pope, the man the Westminster Confession of Faith describes as that “Antichrist” as he blasphemously sets up himself up in the place of God.

In the message, Alan Scott recounts a meeting of the leaders of the Vineyard Church with the Pope. They are John and Eleanor (or Ele) Mumford, who, for the easily impressed, are also the parents of Marcus Mumford from the pop group Mumford and Sons.

He speaks of the meeting as if it is something pleasant to be in the company with the leader of the church which has led millions, perhaps billions, to hell.

While walking in to meet the Pope, John and Ele bump into their good friends who have just met with the “Antichrist” themselves, “Justin and Caroline”, who happen to be Justin and Caroline Welby, the Arch-Apostate of Canterbury, whom we have previously mentioned endorsing the Romish practice of prayer to saints, and his wife.

This shows that, even beside the Pope, their company is unbecoming those who would profess Christ as they are pals with a leader of the apostasy in the UK like Justin Welby.

As Alan Scott, who has recently moved to America to spread his deceit further, continues his drivel, which is still available online (though we wouldn’t advise listening to it – we have subjected ourselves to it so you don’t have to), one begins to wonder if he’s telling a bedtime story or supposedly preaching to people’s souls.

He then blatantly issues a defiant challenge to God. Alan Scott continues: “John and Ele went in to meet the Pope. Are the Proddies OK?”

Cue uproarious laughter from the dupes in the congregation.

What Alan Scott is saying is: “Did the two Protestants suddenly spontaneously combust when they went into the presence of the leader of Romanism? Were they struck down by God in that very second? No, they didn’t and they weren’t, and that’s because they did nothing wrong in socialising with the Pope.”

That’s what he is saying. He is directly challenging God with a breathtaking arrogance, irreverence and ignorance of His power and His anger at sin.

Quite often sin goes unpunished for a long time, quite often sinners don’t seem to be punished in this life. However, judgement will surely come, whether it be visibly on earth, or whether it be in eternity.

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

The heart of Alan Scott is fully set in himself to do evil, such as causing members of his congregation to laugh at the notion that God could possibly judge sin. He needs to bear in mind those nine words in verse 13: “But it shall not be well with the wicked”.

Job, in his disputations with his friends, looks at the lack of judgement there appears to be on the wicked, and indeed they often prosper, but it will not last and they are as chaff blown away in the wind. It says in Job 21:13-18: “They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave. Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? Lo, their good is not in their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me. How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger. They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.”

Temporarily safe from God’s judgement, John and Ele persist in their defiance of our Saviour by referring to the Pope as “His Holiness”, when there are few, if any, less holy people on this earth.

Ele then, Alan Scott relays to us, asks the Pope a question. She asks him, “What do you think the Holy Spirit is doing on the earth today?” As if the Pope has any idea what the Holy Spirit is doing.

However, the Holy Spirit knows what the Pope is doing. He is blaspheming His name by claiming to be the ‘Vicar of Christ on earth’, a role which was taken by the Holy Spirit after Christ had finished His work on earth.

However, Alan Scott gushes: “That’s a brilliant question for the Pope.” He then goes on to say the Pope replied by saying you can do three things with the Holy Spirit.

Alan Scott says the Pope said you can ignore him, grieve him (the Pope knows all about that one!) or you can “let the Holy Spirit have His way”.

And then Alan Scott confirmed his disgraceful blasphemy and sell out of God’s Word.

He says: “Now here’s the deal. John and Ele and Justin and Caroline and Francis, they will disagree on lots of things, but I can journey with anyone who’ll let the Holy Spirit have His way.

“If we’re agreed on that, I’m all in. If that’s your conviction of faith. Like we can talk about beads and flags, or we can just say, ‘Holy Spirit you’re welcome here’. It’s beautiful, right? And that’s the unity we aspire towards.”

We’re afraid, Alan Scott, that is the furthest thing from beautiful and it is certainly not the unity anyone should be aspiring towards.

What he is saying is that doctrines aren’t important, faithfulness to God’s Word is an irrelevance, we are all to be part of one big ecumenical gang as long as someone makes one single glib statement that they’ll let the Holy Spirit have His way.

Jesus said, “by their fruits ye shall know them” and the Pope grieves the Holy Spirit by his blasphemy, which will not be forgiven.

Matthew 12:31: “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”

Alan Scott and his followers in the Vineyard church and its friends need to remember that. The Pope’s sin will not be forgiven. He is damned already.

That must also cause you to question whoever wants to associate with the Pope and whoever says they are “all in” and can “journey” spiritually with the Pope. Any spiritual journey with the Pope leads to hell.

As for his comments about beads (representing Roman Catholicism) and flags (supposedly representing Protestantism), that is just absolute nonsense.

Alan Scott is clearly referring to rosary beads, a Romanist blasphemy used to pray to Mary for intercession, (1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”), but he is stating he does not have a problem with that and is endorsing worship of Mary. What utter blasphemy!

As for the reference to flags, a comment which drew foolish laughter from his audience, since when were flags a part of Protestant worship? There is no equivalence between the two. This is just silly nonsense from someone in a position as a church leader, which demands far more from its occupant.

2 Timothy 2:16-17: “But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. And their word will eat as doth a canker”.

That word “canker” can be rendered “cancer”, and it equates such foolish talk to be like a cancer in the way it spreads, and that is what Alan Scott is doing, he is spreading another gospel which will eat up people’s souls until they are entirely consumed and cast into hell.

Reader, please be wary of such utter departure from God’s Word. Be aware too that the leader of the Evangelical Alliance, Peter Lynas, is a leading figure in that church.

We previously featured Peter Lynas’ pathetic, glowing tribute to Billy Graham, a man who walked hand in hand with Rome and turned souls yearning for salvation back into the clutches of Rome. Peter Lynas has also previously stated his interest in hearing what the Pope has to say about moral issues, such as abortion.

True Christians shouldn’t want to hear what that “man of sin, and son of perdition” has to say on anything.

Luke 11:28: “But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”
