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.”

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.
