Presbyterian quitter Lord Alderdice endorses pro LGBT Non-Subscribing Church

Back in June, we focused on the Presbyterian Church in Ireland taking some very minor, but positive, steps with regards their acceptance of sodomy in the church.

These included barring full communicant membership to homosexuals and not permitting the baptism of children in the care of same-sex couples, as well as loosening ties with their sister church, the Church of Scotland, due to its endorsement of sodomite marriage.

As we commented at the time, this was a case where the Presbyterian Church was ambling a few yards back down the road of compromise when they should have been running a marathon back down it.

In any case, it was all too much for soppy modernists like (Lord) John Alderdice, former leader of the ecumenical Alliance Party and, until the decision by the General Assembly, an elder in the Presbyterian Church.

He resigned his position of authority in protest at the resolutions made by the church, and was very vocal in doing so, as he is, of course, entitled to do.

However, he cannot pretend that such moves are in any way compatible with the teaching of the Bible, but rather he is simply following the precepts of man.

And in a further demonstration of his utter rejection of God’s Word, on Sunday past, Lord Alderdice was the guest speaker in the sodomite ‘pride’ supporting and ‘LGBT affirming’ All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church in Belfast, which you can read about by clicking here.

This is the church which hosts an annual ‘Pride service’ on the weekend of the sodomite parade through Belfast, and which hosts an annual ‘transgender day of remembrance’, two utterly unbiblical events.

Of course, it is precisely because of Lord Alderdice’s anti-Christian views regarding sodomy that he has been invited to speak in All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church. Were Lord Alderdice in support of the Irish Presbyterian Church’s stance, he would certainly not be invited to such a haven of apostasy and most certainly wouldn’t entertain the notion of going near such.

In addition, leaving to one side its utterly disgraceful attitude to sodomy, the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church is a unitarian church, meaning it rejects the precious doctrine of the Trinity of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.

They deny that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and God the Son, thereby they take away the Bible’s method of salvation through faith alone in Jesus Christ.

And this is what God’s Word has to say about those who reject Christ as the Son of God.

1 John 2:22-23: “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.”

John also discusses this theme in 2 John v 9: “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.”

Someone who does not believe in Christ as God the Son cannot abide in the doctrine of Christ, they have consciously rejected it, yet this is the type of church that Lord Alderdice, who until very recently had responsibility as a spiritual overseer for many souls, is fellowshipping with and choosing to endorse.

We will remind Lord Alderdice of the Westminster Confession of Faith, which he vowed he believed and promised to uphold at his installation as an elder.

It says in Chapter 2, Paragraph 3: “In the unity of the Godhead there be three Persons of one substance, power and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. The Father is of none, neither begotten nor proceeding; the Son is eternally proceeding from the Father and the Son.”

What does Lord Alderdice think of this now? Does he actually believe in the Trinity? If not, did he ever believe in it or when did he stop believing in it? If he does believe in the Trinity, then what is he doing as a special guest speaker in a church which outright rejects that very crucial doctrine?

Salvation comes through Christ. This is abundantly clear through Scripture.

Peter, addressing the Jews, said in Acts 4:10-12: “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

There is “none other name” but that of Christ which can save us from a lost eternity in hell.

When you remove Christ then you remove salvation. This is the root of the apostasy of all unitarian churches and, once that is achieved, all manner of other evils can spring forth.

The passage we refer to shows that we MUST be saved and we can do it no other way but through Jesus, therefore All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church denies the basic message of salvation.

And Lord Alderdice is giving credence to and endorsing such a blasphemous church by addressing a meeting there.

We repeat the statement we made back in June – the Presbyterian Church in Ireland can only benefit from the absence of the likes of Lord Alderdice.

Being invited to a Christ denying church which endorses sodomy shows that Lord Alderdice is prioritising backing that which is called an “abomination” in the Scripture (Leviticus 18:22) over the salvation of lost souls.

What an appalling situation.

Certainly the homosexual must be evangelised, but this is emphatically not what happens in All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, whose minister, Rev Chris Hudson (pictured, below), is a ‘transgender champion’.

This church openly endorses and “affirms” sodomy as not only acceptable but admirable. One need only scroll through their facebook page to get that message loud and clear.

In All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, homosexuality is not considered a sin.

Alas for them, the Bible says otherwise.

Romans 1:26-27: “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

Hallelujah, however, salvation is available to homosexuals as is clearly outlined in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

It says: “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 “abusers of themselves with mankind” had been saved in Corinth and they can be saved in Belfast, Londonderry, Enniskillen, Ireland, UK, USA, Canada, Australia, anywhere in the world.

Let us pray for those whose sexuality diverges from God’s established plan for mankind, that they might be saved, rather than encouraging them on in their sin like the Rev Chris Hudsons and the Lord Alderdices of this world.

2 Peter 3:9: “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.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Romans 10:9-10: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Presbyterian ‘minister’ Lesley Carroll gives her backing to transgenderism while helping persecute Asher’s Bakery

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

At ‘Protestant Revival’, we have previously highlighted the shocking ecumenical conduct of the so-called Presbyterian ‘minister’, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll (1 Timothy 2:12).

This includes addressing an ecumenical service in a Roman Catholic chapel in County Tyrone in January, at which she appeared to equate the Pope’s planned visit to Ireland with the birth of Jesus and stated that the Second Vatican Council offered hope to Christianity.

In addition to this heretical nonsense, we then featured her role as second-in-command of the (In)Equality Commission, the body bringing the disgraceful legal action against the Christian Asher’s Bakery, who have been persecuted by the forces of the state for refusing to betray their Christian principles by icing a cake with a message supporting gay marriage, a notion utterly repugnant to the Word of God (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27).

She has not offered one public pronouncement speaking out against the disgraceful treatment of the McArthur family, who own Asher’s Bakery, and continues to hold her position as Deputy Chief Commissioner and enthusiastically support the Inequality Commission’s work.

And now, while refusing to support Asher’s Bakery, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll has instead demonstrated her public support for the misguided and utterly unbiblical notion of transgenderism.

A transgender group called the ‘Belfast Butterfly Club’ recently marked 25 years of promoting its delusion and who was the special guest? The ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll, of course.

According to the Belfast Butterfly Club’s website, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll “congratulated the club on its 25 years of transgender support charity work across Northern Ireland”.

She is also pictured on the right of our image at the top of this article with a leading member of this transgender grouping.

It is most instructive that a supposed ‘minister’ of the gospel, though of course it’s not a position she is entitled to hold, would rather be pictured showing her support to a group utterly at odds with God’s Word than with the Christian owners of Asher’s Bakery.

We would also say at this point, lest anyone reading this should start with the “but Jesus dined with sinners” line they love to peddle, that Jesus didn’t actively endorse sinful lifestyles.

Jesus didn’t endorse the Samaritan woman at the well’s sinful lifestyle. He didn’t say that having had five husbands was ok.

John 4:16-18: “Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.”

These same twisters of God’s Word also love to say about how Jesus ministered to prostitutes. That was an absolutely proper thing to do, everyone has a soul in need of salvation, but did Jesus give his blessing to immorality? Of course not. He sought to save people from their sinful estate.

Had there been an event in Jesus’ time such as this one in Belfast, would Jesus have attended and offered best wishes to the ‘Butterfly Club’? The very notion is utterly blasphemous.

‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll was not there to proselytise, otherwise she would not have been invited.

Indeed, this is not the first time that ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll has offered her support to the anti-Christian notion of transgenderism.

In November 2015, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll offered her support to another transgender grouping, the ‘Focus Trust’. Its tagline on its website neatly sums up its purpose: ‘Supporting transgender and intersex individuals and their families’.

According to the report on its website, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll gave a reading. Whether or not it was from the Bible we are not told, but we can be fairly confident she didn’t read any of the verses already specified in this article.

‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll also attended that event in her role as Deputy Chief Commissioner of the Inequality Commission.

The event was termed as a ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ for those “transgender and intersex individuals worldwide who have lost their lives because of society’s intolerance towards them due to a condition they were born with”.

We are not sure what that refers to, but certainly were they physically harmed or subjected to mental abuse because of their decision to live in the way they have chosen, then that is wrong.

However, the condition they are actually born with, like us all, is sin.

Romans 3:23 reminds us that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Jeremiah 9:11 says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Psalm 51:5 says: “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.”

We are all natural born sinners, from the point of our conception and the notion of ‘changing’ our gender based on our own feelings is an affront to God.

This meeting from 2015 was held in All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church in Belfast.

The denomination takes its name from the fact they refused to subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith at the time Henry Cooke led a great clear-out in the Presbyterian Church.

Among other major issues with the church, it adopts a Unitarian stance, thus rejecting the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity, meaning they reject the truth of Christ being God, making the church heretical and therefore somewhere no Presbyterian ‘minister’ or worshipper should attend, or indeed those belonging to any other denomination.

It would appear, from the report already referred to, this ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ happens in the Church annually, under the auspices of the minister there, Rev Chris Hudson.

At the event, he was presented with a ‘Transgender Champion’ award by the Moderator of the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, the Right (more like Wrong) Reverend Chris Wilson, on behalf of the Focus Trust.

Further evidence of the shocking defiance to God in that church was then demonstrated as a gift was presented to a student ‘minister’ of that denomination, a Linda Ballard (pictured, below). The report explains that this Linda Ballard “plans to form her ministry around gender issues”.

The very basis of her supposed ministry of the gospel is something utterly corrupt and contrary to God’s natural order. That is a truly disgraceful rejection of Biblical Christianity.

Linda Ballard is now the ‘minister’ of 1st Dunmurry Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church.

These are the sort of characters that ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll prefers to associate with.

Proverbs 13:20: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

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

‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll certainly does not heed this advice from the Word of God.

As we stated earlier, were ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll seeking the conversion of these characters, she would not be invited to these events.

Her compromise with the most brazen of sins is obvious, repeated and grave.

And any minister who teaches such error is guilty of the most serious offence in the eyes of God.

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

Reader, if you are as yet unsaved, please do not allow your blood to be on the hands of some apostate preacher, but rather heed the warnings of Christ and take of his free offer of grace.

Repent of your sin to God and ask forgiveness and He will save you.

1 John 1:8-9: “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
