Romish compromise rewarded as Right Eejit John McDowell appointed Church of Ireland Archbishop

Malachi 3:15: “And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.”

We have previously commented in other articles how it appears that the more compromised with Rome a clergyman appears to be, the more likely he is to be on course for the top, especially in the Church of Ireland.

So hand in hand is the Church of Ireland with the pagan perversion of true Christianity that is the Church of Rome that it is to be expected devoted ecumenists will be occupying the top roles.

And so it has proven as one promoter of Romish compromise has been replaced with another in the most senior post of the Church of Ireland.

Right Reverend (or Right Eejit) John McDowell (pictured, top), the current Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, has been appointed as the new Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, replacing Most Reverend (or Most Ecumenical) Richard Clarke (pictured, below).

The Rome compromising, Papal pandering, Apocrypha preaching dyed in the wool ecumenist has been rewarded for his clerical career of compromise by being elevated to this loftiest (and no doubt generously remunerated) of roles.

Let’s have a look at Right Eejit John McDowell’s rather inglorious CV.

He is bosom buddies with former Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher Joseph Duffy, a man who was found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”.

Despite that being the finding of a report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children as far back as 2010, Right Eejit John McDowell continues to be fast friends with this Romish deceiver.

In April 2018, he was a joint guest of honour with Bishop Joseph Duffy (pictured, below) in a Church of Ireland event in a congregation in County Monaghan.

Then, in June 2018, Right Eejit John McDowell was a guest of honour at the Romanist blasphemy of the mass, a mass held to celebrate 60 years in the priesthood of that same Bishop Joseph Duffy.

Apart from the obvious disregard he showed towards true religion and God by attending such a wretched event as the mass, he was also showing complete disregard to the victims of child abuse in the Clogher diocese who might have been spared such wicked treatment had Bishop Joseph Duffy not “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

Surely this alone is enough to preclude Right Eejit John McDowell from being elevated to this role?

Right Eejit John McDowell is also a past President of the Irish Council of Churches and was a signatory to a letter begging “that Antichrist” the Pope to visit Northern Ireland when he made his way to the Republic of Ireland in August 2018.

Right Eejit John McDowell was also in attendance in May 2018 when a service was held in the Church of Ireland in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh to celebrate a Jesuit priest in the process of being ‘sainted’ by the Pope.

Then in that same church, St Macartin’s Cathedral, in November 2018 Right Eejit John McDowell preached from the Apocrypha during a Remebrance Day service.

And the following month, in greeting the appointment of Larry Duffy as the new Romanist Bishop of Clogher, he said he was praying for his success.

All that was just in 2018!

Indeed, he added a deal of variation to his wilful rejection of God’s Word late last year as he was in attendance at a pro-LGBT event in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen and indeed closed the meeting “with a prayer of love for our queer brothers and sisters”.

So there you have it. This is the man who is now in charge of the Church of Ireland, the second largest allegedly Protestant denomination in Ireland.

Associating with Romanist priests who “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”, taking every opportunity he can to compromise with the evil false religion of Rome and caving into the campaign for the acceptance of sodomy in the church, this is the trail left by Right Eejit John McDowell.

Are you impressed?

Do you believe he ought to be a spiritual leader?

Do you want him to be your spiritual leader?

Do you believe God smiles upon Roght Eejit John McDowell as a very senior and very public proclaimed representative of Him?

We trust the answer to each question is very clear indeed and we trust that, if you are saved, you will “come out from among them and be ye separate” from the Church of Ireland.

If you are as yet unsaved, won’t you place your faith and trust in Christ, the one Who gave Himself on the cross at Calvary that we might be saved.

1 Peter 2:24-25: “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.”

Christ is a Bishop to be much admired and followed after, Right Eejit John McDowell is a bishop to be rejected.

Choose the gospel of Christ, not the false gospel of Right Eejit John McDowell and his ilk.

Pro-LGBT event in Enniskillen Church of Ireland cathedral

2 Timothy 3:13: “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”

The LGBT influence in the professing church is continuing to gain ground.

One need only look at the recent deplorable situation where a man who had entered a sodomite ‘marriage’, who also happened to be a Presbyterian elder in a church in the Republic of Ireland, was thrown out of the eldership and the consternation this met with from numerous figures in the Presbyterian Church.

Indeed, virtually every day the Belfast Telegraph is replete with letters from some professing Christian or another who is most irate a man whose lifestyle choice is described by God as an “abomination” was ejected from leadership in the church.

It is ironic they have been so critical and, gasp, judgmental about individuals making this decision, when they preach a gospel of “judge not” to any who condemn homosexuality for what it is – sin.

Many have raised criticisms over the process by which the matter was handled, though this is something we are not especially concerned with, asides from the question as to why it took so long to remove Steven Smyrl from the eldership (apparently around six months from the ‘marriage’)?

Also concerning is the fact that he was apparently known to be a homosexual before his ‘marriage’, certainly by his congregation, as he had been in a same-sex relationship for 20 years and obtained a civil partnership in 2011.

Regardless, it is emblematic of the growing acceptance of sodomy within the church that such a circumstance has occurred.

And further evidence of the increasing prevalence of spokespeople for the sodomite movement in the church came on Monday night this week, when the LGBT organisation JustLOVE held what was described as an “LGBT affirming faith event” at St Macartin’s Hall in Enniskillen.

This is the church hall owned by the Church of Ireland’s St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen.

The driving force behind this JustLOVE event was none other than sodomite ‘Pride’ parading Rev Andrew Rawding (pictured, top), who will tonight (Thursday) host in his rectory a meeting of a new LGBT group, Mid Ulster Pride.

We had been made aware of this meeting in Enniskillen prior to its taking place but knew few further details of it.

That was until we received a screenshot of the report placed by Rev Andrew Rawding on his Facebook page and we discovered the event was even more troubling than we had previously feared.

Indeed, the details of Rev Andrew Rawding’s post should be of grave concern to any Bible-believing Christian.

Not only was Rev Andrew Rawding the one behind this event, but he tells of an ordained Methodist minister in County Fermanagh called Rev Steven Foster who spoke of how he is a “gay man” and who called for churches to “provide liturgy which affirms queer people”.

It was also revealed that the Church of Ireland’s Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit (sorry, Right Reverend) John McDowell, closed “with a prayer of love for our queer brothers and sisters”.

This is the text of the post from Rev Andrew Rawding.

It says: “Another amazing and informative JustLOVE evening with Jo McParland of Cara Friend in St Macartin’s Cathedral Hall.

“In particular we need to show so much more unconditional love and acceptance to our transgender brothers and sisters.

“Thanks to Rev Steven Foster (Methodist Church Ireland) for his honesty, talking about praying a ‘suicide prayer’ as he struggled with isolation and loneliness as a gay man in the church.

“Steven challenged and encouraged churches to love (over legalism), listen, learn, be careful about language, show leadership and provide liturgy which affirms queer (LGBTQ+) people.

“Great to have Bishop John McDowell close with a prayer of love for our queer brothers and sisters and asking forgiveness for those times when we have not been loving.”

And, as you can see from the top of the screenshot which we have reproduced, below, Rev Andrew Rawding also ‘tagged’ Kenny Hall in his post, saying he had been with him at the event.

Kenny Hall, or Rev Kenneth Hall, is the Dean of the Clogher diocese and rector of St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen.

He is a rampant ecumenist, having previously held a service in his church in honour of a Romanist Jesuit who is en route to being ‘sainted’ by the Roman Catholic Church, as well as having vowed in a sermon at his church to continue to work “tirelessly and endlessly” with Romish priests in his pursuit of unity.

That is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his ecumenical compromise with the devilish deceits of Rome, but now he has added compromise with the utterly ungodly LGBT movement to his God-defying CV.

It would appear he was in attendance given the fact he was ‘tagged’ by Rev Andrew Rawding (otherwise that was mischief making on his part) but certainly he didn’t stand in the way of such an event taking place on his church’s property.

Indeed, reading back through the article we penned last spring detailing Dean Kenneth Hall (pictured, above) renewing his ecumenical vows, as it were, he points out that he was a minister in Coalisland and Stewartstown, exactly where Rev Andrew Rawding is currently a minister.

How neat and tidy is that?

The group Cara Friend referred to in the post by Rev Andrew Rawding is an LGBT support group, while Rev Steven Foster was, until recently, minister of Irvinestown and Pettigo Methodist Churches in Counties Fermanagh and Donegal respectively. He took up a post in Tipperary in the Republic of Ireland a few months ago.

As referred to above, he is a homosexual acting as a minister and has called on churches to “provide liturgy which affirms queer (LGBTQ+) people”.

What a sorry situation this is and what a damning indictment of the state of the Methodist Church in Ireland today.

Right Eejit John McDowell (pictured, below) was also along to sow his seeds of compromise.

Like Dean Kenneth Hall, he is a rampant ecumenist and has now added caving in to the LGBT agenda to his list of God-defiance as well.

Last year on Remembrance Sunday, Right Eejit John McDowell disgracefully preached from the Apocrypha in the supposedly Protestant St Macartin’s Cathedral, while he was also a guest of honour alongside the former Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher, Joseph Duffy, a man found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”, at a Church of Ireland service in County Monaghan.

So it is perhaps not surprising to see this continued degeneration – one compromise tends to lead to another.

And yet in all this there is still cause for the believer to marvel at the gracious mercy of our Heavenly Father.

These individuals have obtained positions of seniority and respect, and little doubt they are at least financially comfortable, and this is a sign of God’s patience with those who disobey Him, as He bears their sin for a long time, giving them the chance to see the error of their way and come to Him in repentance.

Such mercy is referred to in Isaiah 26:10-11, which says: “Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord. Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.”

However, as we can see, it will be reckoned with at last, and we can also rejoice in God’s justice while praying that He will not need to bring down His judgment on those who disobey Him and that instead there will be repentance.

The issue of sodomy is one which is really crystal clear to any who takes even a slightly honest or scarcely cursory view of Scripture, yet so many are deceiving and being deceived in this sinful day.

Numerous Bible passages deal with the issue.

These include, but are certainly not limited to:

Leviticus 18:22: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

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.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10: “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.”

That is certainly not to say we are not to look upon those who fall under the man-made classification of LGBT with concern for their souls or care for their spiritual wellbeing, but we cannot wink at sin, we cannot sit idly by and let sin be endorsed and praised as noble, brave, honest or admirable.

We live in days as those spoken of in Isaiah 5:20, which 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!”

However, let us not be silent or reluctant in still declaring that which is evil still to be evil and that which is bitter still to be bitter.

Let us not sacrifice the goodness of God’s Word to protect the temporary feelings of the unconverted.

Psalm 119:103-104: “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.”

Church of Ireland praying for success of Romanist bishop – Right Eejit John McDowell

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.”

A Church of Ireland bishop has expressed his hope that he will enjoy a strong “friendship” with his new Roman Catholic counterpart in the Diocese of Clogher.

‘Monsignor’ Larry Duffy was named the new Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher earlier this month and the Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit (though he presumably prefers Right Reverend) John McDowell was quick to wish Bishop Larry Duffy well as he takes up his leading role in propagating Romish deceit in the area.

Welcoming the appointment of ‘Monsignor’ Larry Duffy, Right Eejit John McDowell said: “I want to congratulate Mgr Duffy on his appointment and assure him of my prayers and those of his many friends within the Church of Ireland community.

“I look forward to working with the new Bishop in the same spirit of friendship and service as I was fortunate enough to share with his predecessor Bishop Liam McDaid and pray that Mgr Duffy will know the presence of the Lord as he prepares for his episcopal ordination.”

It should not be much of a surprise to see Right Eejit John McDowell wishing his Romish friend success in his new role and making overtures towards him with regards seeking to establish ecumenical relationships.

Indeed, just last month, Right Eejit John McDowell shockingly preached from the Apocrypha in a Remembrance Sunday service in St Macartin’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Enniskillen.

Not only that, but he has regularly cosied up with Larry Duffy’s predecessor as Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher, Liam McDaid, as Right Eejit John McDowell himself attested to in his statement welcoming the new occupant of the post.

He has also established ecumenical links with ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly, a good friend of the brazen ecumenist Rev Kenneth Hall (the pair are pictured together, below, with ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly on the right), Church of Ireland Dean of Clogher. Peter O’Reilly has held the role of Diocesan Administrator of the Roman Catholic Clogher Diocese while a new bishop was sought.

Indeed, Right Eejit John McDowell has just yesterday (Monday) issued his joint Christmas message with his Romish chum. Any mention of how we might be saved in the message, given his message is supposed to centre around the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ? Of course not.

And the man who occupied the bishop post prior to Liam McDaid was Joseph Duffy, a man found in a damning report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children in 2010 to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”.

This was reported on in the Belfast Telegraph, with the relevant article still available online.

That same Belfast Telegraph article also reports that 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.”

And back in June, we highlighted how Right Eejit John McDowell was a guest of honour at a Mass celebrating 60 years since the ordination of Joseph Duffy (pictured, below) to the Romanist priesthood.

To attend the Romish Mass as a supposedly Protestant minister, regardless of whether or not (and we know not) Right Eejit John McDowell partook of the elements, is a grave matter and ought to have been dealt with in the strongest possible of terms by the Church of Ireland.

After all, their own 39 Articles, which supposedly govern the church, condemn the Mass as a “blasphemous fable” and a “dangerous deceit”.

However, he remains in situ six months later, continuing to brazenly embrace Rome and celebrate and offer support to various practitioners of Popish priestcraft.

That is leaving aside Right Eejit John McDowell’s honouring of a priest condemned in such terms by that report from the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children.

One can only conclude the Church of Ireland has abandoned its 39 Articles in favour of mean compromise with Rome, a church which, through the centuries long Inquisition and various other means, has sought to silence and destroy the glorious message of the gospel of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Right Eejit John McDowell’s conduct can at best be described as bidding God speed to the workers of unrighteousness and making him a partaker of their evil deeds.

And by the Church of Ireland allowing such a situation to develop and proceed unhindered, the church is implicated in this guiltiness of endorsing Romanism.

Also, this situation with the new Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher provides exactly the same scenario, as this leading figure in the Church of Ireland says he will pray for the success of this new bishop.

Success of course, for Larry Duffy, would be to see the Roman Catholic diocese of Clogher growing and the teaching of Romanism gaining ground.

Yet this is apparently what Right Eejit John McDowell is happy to set his seal of approval to?

What a sad state of affairs.

Dear reader, if you remain tied up among the Anglican movement, which is ran by and large by rampant ecumenists and ecclesiastic compromisers, won’t you even separate yourself from the likes of Right Eejit John McDowell?

This call will be necessary up to the close of this age to God’s chosen people caught up in that which they ought to be well clear of.

Revelation 18:1-4 demonstrates this: “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

Be not partakers of the plagues of apostasy and ecumenism but instead be separated unto Christ.

Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

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).

Church of Ireland bishop is guest of honour at Mass celebrating priest who ‘failed to prevent clerical sex abuse’

The Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit John McDowell, has attended the Romish blasphemy of the Mass being held to celebrate 60 years in the priesthood of a man who was found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

It’s perhaps profitable to pause a moment and take that in.

A senior supposedly Protestant clergyman not only attended the central blasphemous act of Roman Catholic worship, but he compounded that grave act of treachery by attending such a Mass as one that would honour Bishop Joseph Duffy, a man who “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

The Mass was held on Sunday past in St Macartan’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in Monaghan town.

Is this the type of man who anyone should be celebrating, let alone a supposedly God fearing cleric?

It is also a brazen act of defiance by Rome and a slap in the face to any victims of abuse to honour such a character as this former Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher.

Right Eejit John McDowell is no stranger to consorting with Bishop Joseph Duffy, indeed we previously highlighted how the pair were joint guests of honour at a ‘community event’ in a Church of Ireland church in nearby Clones, County Monaghan.

At that time, we highlighted the highly critical report brought by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children.

We said at that time: “Bishop Joseph Duffy was the Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher until his retirement in 2010 and a damning report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children later found that he “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”, a Belfast Telegraph report says.

“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.”

It would not be unreasonable to think even an arch-ecumenist like Right Eejit John McDowell might consider it wise to take a step back from a scandal-hit Papist such as Bishop Joseph Duffy (pictured, above).

However, not a bit of it.

He has carried on regardless, determined to defy God and carry out his own religion, making his own false idols in his religion of ecumenism. He will please himself, as the idolaters of Israel in the days of Amos.

It says in Amos 4:4-5: “Come to Beth-el, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years: And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord God.”

It could be clearly said that “this liketh you”, O Bishop John McDowell.

He has continued to offer up his leavened sacrifices to God and it is a fearful thing to think that God would give him up to his apostasy, as he did with those idolaters and transgressors in the days of Amos.

Right Eejit John McDowell was certainly keeping company with idolaters and transgressors on Sunday, as, among a crowd of 500, the Catholic Diocese of Clogher website reports, there were 30 Romanist priests.

This included ‘Monsignor’ Joseph McGuinness, the Papal mouthpiece for the blocking of the erection of a memorial to 13 Protestants murdered by Roman Catholic terrorists in a bombing in Enniskillen. The bomb had been planted in Roman Catholic Church property.

As an aside, it is interesting to note the Church of Ireland Clogher Diocese website has a very clear and prominently placed link on its homepage directing you to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Clogher website. There is no such reciprocation on the Roman Catholic website. We believe that is very telling.

Back to Sunday’s service and no doubt Right Eejit John McDowell will have been delighted to be name-checked by not one, but two priests of the pagan corruption of Rome.

First to do so was the man giving the homily to Bishop Joseph Duffy, a ‘Father’ Paddy McGinn.

He said, referring to Bishop Joseph Duffy: “His work in the area of ecumenism has been outstanding and noteworthy and it is great for us to have Bishop John McDowell, Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, with us here today.”

Right Eejit John McDowell had his ego still further massaged when Bishop Joseph Duffy himself took the stage.

He said: “I especially welcome Bishop John McDowell of the Church of Ireland who is here present.”

So there you go – a special welcome from Rome to the so-called Protestant minister in attendance.

Were Right Eejit John McDowell truly preaching the gospel and earnestly contending for the faith, he wouldn’t be darkening the door of that chapel, and what’s more, the Roman Catholic Church wouldn’t let him near the place either.

The 39 Articles which are supposed to govern his church, the Church of Ireland, state that the Mass is a “blasphemous fable and dangerous deceit”.

Clearly, Right Eejit John McDowell does not believe that.

Such deceit on his behalf is strongly condemned by God. God speaks on numerous occasions of the bloodguiltiness of the preacher who neglects to shepherd the flock in the manner He has so ordained.

Such men speak only of peace, but their notion of peace is faulty for they make peace with sin, rather than imploring sinners to be at peace with God through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 59:3-4,8 says: “For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.”

This deception not only leads to the destruction of its propagator, but also of its followers.

We received correspondence some weeks back from a Church of Ireland minister who serves under Bishop John McDowell in the Diocese of Clogher.

This gentleman said, among other things, in one of the more polite messages we have received, the following: “I am not saying that I agree with everything that every clergy member in my church does but I do believe that God will be the judge if they have erred in any way and that they will have to give an account for their actions.”

He is, of course, absolutely right that God will judge and the likes of Bishop John McDowell will have to give an account for his actions.

However, Christians ought to challenge actions like these as they are such blatant departures from the Word of God. The damage is being done now, sinners are being told lies now and we must speak up now in God’s name to call out the actions of Right Eejit John McDowell for what they are – utter apostasy.

If you are involved with the Church of Ireland, we would implore you to break from clerical traitors such as Right Eejit John McDowell and separate yourself from them.

We would also encourage anyone who knows anyone in that Clogher Diocese area to share this article with them in the hope that they will “come out from among them” and instead fellowship with a Christ honouring church, not one for whom many of its leading figures glory in their links with the Romanist deceit.

Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

Church of Ireland clerics help lead prayers to Mary to celebrate Pentecost

The jolly ecumenical relations in County Fermanagh were further developed last weekend at an ecumenical prayer service on the shores of Lower Lough Erne.

It was held at Carnagh Bay to celebrate Pentecost Sunday and was led by two ecumenical chums, the Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit (though his official title is Right Reverend) John McDowell (pictured, far left of our photograph) and Roman Catholic Diocesan Administrator of Clogher, ‘Monsignor’ Joseph McGuinness (pictured, far right of our photograph).

Lest anyone forget, ‘Monsignor’ Joseph McGuinness was the Papist mouthpiece for the Roman Catholic Church disgracefully refusing victims of an IRA bomb planted on Papal property permission to place a memorial on the site of the blast which took the lives of 12 Protestants.

So of course it makes perfect sense for a so-called Protestant like the traitorous Right Eejit John McDowell to continue to cosy up with him.

There were other Protestant Lundys there as well, which should surprise nobody.

There would be no ecumenical show without the apostate Punch of Chancellor (Chancer!) Canon David Skuce, rector (or wrecker, perhaps) of Inishmacsaint Parish Church, which takes its name after the island this ecumenical prayer service was overlooking from the shores of the lough. He is pictured third from the right of our photograph at the top of this article.

Another clerical sell-out in attendance, and again another character whose disgraceful ecumenical conduct we have previously highlighted, was Rev Sampson Ajuka, rector of Boho and Devenish Parish Churches. Rev Sampson Ajuka is pictured third left in the photograph with this article.

There remains a key question, and one which we have put forward on numerous occasions at ‘Protestant Revival’, and that is – to whom were the prayers uttered at this service offered up to?

Rome blasphemously teaches of prayer to saints and to Mary, however, the Bible teaches of prayer to God alone, through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

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

Intercession is made on our behalf by Jesus, not by Mary or any other of the copious saints Rome falsely proclaims to have power to intercede on our behalf.

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

Indeed, a report of the event states that the ‘prayers of intercession’ were led by ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips, Parish Priest for that area. He is pictured second left in the photograph with this article. His parish includes the Church of the Immaculate Conception in the village of Monea and Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in the village of Boho, both close to where this service took place.

The Church of the Immaculate Conception was the site for a God-defying service marking the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in January, at which Chancer Canon David Skuce and Rev Sampson Ajuja took part, while the same pair were up to their necks in an ecumenical Easter service which took place in Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Boho.

To whom was ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips offering up his prayers of intercession? Not that God would have regarded them anyway had they been offered to Him as the prayers of ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips and his ilk are a blasphemy.

Right Eejit John McDowell, Chancer Canon David Skuce and Rev Sampson Ajuka are together guilty of forming what Matthew Henry called a “mongrel religion”, and that is articulated for us excellently in 2 Kings 17.

It says in verses 32-34 and verse 41: “So they feared the Lord, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them priests of the high places, which sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places. They feared the Lord, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence. Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the Lord, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the Lord commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel; So these nations feared the Lord, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children’s children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.”

This is what such apostate characters are doing right unto this day.

They claim to be serving God but in truth they are serving man-made idols and man-ordained dogmas and precepts.

When talking about Pentecost in his message of ecumenical compromise, Right Eejit John McDowell said that God “gave us gifts and one of our vocations is to be peacemakers”.

Not one mention of 3,000 souls being wonderfully and gloriously saved in a single day and the wonderful knock-on effect that had of those new converts, ablaze for Christ, spreading the gospel abroad and many more being added to the Church of Christ.

No, instead Right Eejit John McDowell somehow, blasphemously, turns one of the greatest days in human history into a pretext for ecumenical compromise.

How shameful!

We at ‘Protestant Revival’ have faithfully sought to highlight the ecumenical compromise practiced by Chancer Canon David Skuce, Right Eejit John McDowell and Rev Sampson Ajuka and have sought to faithfully set out what God has said in His Word to demonstrate the appalling betrayal of Biblical Protestantism these men are guilty of.

While they and so many other apostate preachers are guilty of failing in their solemn duty as watchmen, we are determined, with God’s grace, not to be similarly bloodguilty, be it with any reader of this page or, indeed, of the apostate ministers we have highlighted throughout the past number of months.

Indeed Canon David Skuce has no excuse as we know for a fact he has viewed this page and indeed, accidentally (we presume) liked one of the posts on our Facebook page. It just so happened to be the next post up from the one concerning him and bearing his picture we posted a couple of days before Easter.

By persisting in his disgraceful ecumenical blasphemy despite viewing our faithful warning, he is piling up greater judgement for himself.

Chancer Canon David Skuce knows this ecumenical path he is treading is wrong, but he refuses to turn around.

James 4:17 reminds him: “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

It is bad enough to sin, but to do it consciously, knowing it is wrong, is worse still.

If Chancer Canon David Skuce will refuse to turn around, then, dear reader, if you are a part of the ecumenical movement, won’t you turn around before it is too late?

Genesis 6:3 reminds us that God’s Spirit “shall not always strive with man”. 2 Corinthians 6-2 reminds us that “behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation”.

Please do not leave it until it is too late. Come to Christ, confess your sins, ask for forgiveness and place your faith and trust in Him today.
