Pete Greig and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s 24-7 Prayer brings in Romanist Cardinal to Belfast Conference

Jeremiah 2:8: “The priests said not, Where is the Lord? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit.”

Within the pagan Roman Catholic system, there is a great emphasis placed on the hierarchy of its most senior priests.

With the Pope, who blasphemously claims to be the ‘Vicar of Christ on earth’, at the top of this structure, the next rank below this is that of Cardinal.

Reaching this position means an individual is firmly entrenched in that Romanist system and is considered one of the most senior and admirable proponents of the false doctrines of Rome.

A Cardinal, more so than almost all other Romanist priests, is responsible for the false gospel of salvation by works which is outrageously taught by agents of Rome.

One would have thought, given that being the case, you would want to steer clear of recommending such characters to others. Indeed, one would have thought you would have warned others to steer clear of such characters.

Not so, however, with 24-7 Prayer and its leader Pete Greig (pictured, top) as they proudly trumpet the fact that Cardinal Christoph Schonborn, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Vienna will be the most important speaker at their upcoming global conference in Belfast, which takes place in October.

It is little surprise to see Pete Greig trumpeting and championing one of the most senior emissaries of Romanist deceit in the entire world.

After all, last autumn we at ‘Protestant Revival’ highlighted the shameful situation whereby Pete Greig was the guest speaker in the Romanist cathedral in Vienna, Austria’s capital, helping advise the Roman Catholic Church on how to lure more people into its grasp.

He is simply returning the favour as he brings the Romanist Archbishop of Vienna to Northern Ireland as the headline act at his conference.

In doing so, of course, he is striving to make the false doctrines of Romanism more acceptable and palatable to those who would be in attendance at this conference.

We will remind Pete Greig and all who read this what Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches.

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches that there is a fictional (well, they claim it isn’t fictional) holding cell between heaven and hell called purgatory. This is despite there being absolutely NO Scriptural warrant for this whatsoever.

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches that we ought to offer prayers to Mary and various other long dead so-called ‘saints’. This is despite the Bible saying “there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5).

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches the foul blasphemy of the Mass, where Christ is sacrificed again and again in every Romanist chapel every day throughout the world. This is despite the Bible saying that Jesus, “after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:12).

Cardinal Christoph Schonborn’s church teaches, worst of all, the hellish doctrine of salvation by works and sacramental merit. This is despite the Bible saying that “by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

This is not even the full extent of the blasphemies of the Roman Catholic Church, but one would have thought it would be sufficient to warn any professing Christian away from it, but here we have Pete Greig and his 24-7 Prayer group recommending taking spiritual guidance from one of its most senior figures on earth.

What a sad and, indeed, dangerous situation this is.

Also due to speak at this conference is another figure who regular readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ will be familiar with – Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, below), one of the lead pastors at the Emmanuel Church based in the Craigavon area.

Alain Emerson is the leader of 24-7 Prayer in Ireland and will no doubt have very strong links to this event, in addition to his preaching at it.

This is an individual who has preached in Romanist chapels (you can see him doing so in the image below) and who has despicably glorified Ignatius of Loyola, the ungodly founder of the Romanist order of the Jesuits, formed specifically to oppose the Counter Reformation and reaffirm the supremacy of the Pope in Europe.

You can read his lengthy ecumenical rap sheet by clicking here.

Why does Pete Greig think it appropriate to promote exceedingly senior practitioners of Papal priestcraft to his followers?

Why does Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson think it appropriate to appear alongside exceedingly senior practitioners of Papal priestcraft, and in doing so recommend it to his followers?

We would encourage anyone reading this to ask these questions of these men by whatever means available to them, whether it be by phone, email, social media or in person and challenge them politely over their refusal to obey the Word of God’s command to separation from falsehood.

While much noise will be made by these men and others about how much they claim to feel God moving and how many lives they claim are being transformed, they are not laying a solid foundation for any who follow them to walk on.

Rather they are encouraging them to, as the foolish man, build their house upon the sand.

What a sad legacy is being left by easy-believists and shallow charismatic leaders.

Dear reader, please do not cover your ears to this warning and let not the condemnation of the children of Israel be yours as well.

Jeremiah 5:31: “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”

Do not “love to have it so” that false teachers are given the pre-eminence in our land, but rather make the break from shallow charismatism and follow wholly the Word of God.

John 6:37: “him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Lisburn church leaders and Presbyterian Moderator give themselves over to Rome

So many church leaders take every opportunity they can find to mingle with the deceits of Rome.

Rather than proclaiming the truth of the gospel message and how we must all come to Christ as a penitent sinner for salvation, they prefer to cuddle up with the representatives of the Church of Rome, which denies the precious gospel message.

The Easter period was no different and, while we appreciate it was some weeks ago, we believed it wrong to let the ecumenical betrayal carried out by the outgoing Presbyterian Moderator, Rev Charles McMullen (pictured, top), go unchecked.

For he was the star attraction as the leaders of all the major churches in the city of Lisburn, near Belfast, cosied up in one great big ecumenical compromise on Good Friday.

The allegedly Protestant clerics in attendance, leading this charade, were Rev John Brackenridge (1st Lisburn Presbyterian Church), Dean Sam Wright (Lisburn Cathedral, pictured, below), George Hilary (Lisburn Christian Fellowship), Archdeacon Paul Dundas (Christ Church, Church of Ireland) and the Rev Mervyn Ewing (Seymour Street Methodist Church).

And they were, of course, accompanied by an architect of Papal deceit, ‘Father’ Dermot McCaughan of St Patrick’s Roman Catholic chapel in the city.

He, according to a report on the Diocese of Connor’s website, read the story of the crucifixion of Christ.

Given that Rome denies the all-sufficient blood atonement of Christ on the cross at Calvary, it is frankly bizarre and indeed outrageous to have such a character reading the story of Christ’s sacrifice at Calvary.

This is what the Roman Catholic Church teaches, and states in the Council of Trent, regarding justification.

“If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law are not necessary unto salvation, but superfluous; and that, without them, or without the desire thereof, men obtain of God, through faith alone, the grace of justification; though all (the sacraments) are not indeed necessary for every individual; let him be anathema.”

Rome pronounces its anathema, or curse, on any who believes that salvation is obtained by faith alone.

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

Titus 3:5-7 reiterates this, saying: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

Rome teaches we must follow their ordained sacraments in order to merit heaven, yet this is clearly contradictory to the Word of God.

It is certainly not what Jesus taught. He taught that we are saved by faith.

Luke 7:48-50 says: “And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also? And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.”

Luke 18:40-42: “And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he was come near, he asked him, Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, that I may receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.”

These people hadn’t earned their salvation by good works, Jesus freely granted them salvation because of their faith, he explicitly states that to be the case.

We can see this, too, through the salvation of one of the thieves beside Jesus on the cross.

Luke 23:42-43 says: “And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.”

This thief most certainly hadn’t had the time to go through the rituals that any church might impose, he placed his faith in Christ and that was enough for him to be granted a place in heaven with Christ.

Indeed, this passage also puts the lie to another false teaching of Rome – that of purgatory.

But there was ‘Father’ Dermot McCaughan being put forward to the people of Lisburn as a commendable religious leader and guide, despite the fact he is a representative of the church which denies the only way to salvation.

Our land cannot hope to see a revival when there is wilful compromise and ecumenical affiliations with that which is repugnant to God.

Indeed, the 39 Articles of the Anglican Church, which supposedly govern the Church of Ireland, state, in Article 19, that “the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.”

It further states in Article 22: “Romish Doctrine concerning Purgatory, Pardons, Worshipping and Adoration, as well of Images as of Relics, and also Invocation of Saints, is a fond thing, vainly invented, and grounded upon no warranty of Scripture, but rather repugnant to the Word of God.”

And in Article 25, it says: “Those five commonly called Sacraments, that is to say, Confirmation, Penance, Orders, Matrimony, and Extreme Unction, are not to be counted for Sacraments of the Gospel, being such as have grown partly of the corrupt following of the Apostles, partly are states of life allowed in the Scriptures, but yet have not like nature of Sacraments with Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper, for that they have not any visible sign or ceremony ordained of God.”

So the 39 Articles state that many Romish teachings are “repugnant to the Word of God” and that the system of sacramental merit espoused by Rome is errant.

So why do the likes of Dean Sam Wright of Lisburn Cathedral and Archdeacon Paul Dundas of Christ Church, who supposedly subscribe to those very articles, mingle with such religious error?

They appear to have forgotten the Biblical charge to be separated from error.

2 Corinthians 6:14-17 says: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

And what of the outgoing Presbyterian Moderator, Rev Charles McMullen?

His compromise, indeed enthusiastic compromise, with Popery is well established.

One of his first actions when it was announced he was to take over as Moderator was to practically invite himself to fawn over that “man of sin”, the Pope at his then planned visit to Dublin.

He then eagerly raced down to Dublin to cower before the Pope in August, though the Pope didn’t even deem him important enough to actually speak to him.

Despite being fully aware of absolutely proper theological objections to his giving credence to the leader of that anti-Christian system, he engaged in ecumenical betrayal of true Christianity.

Rev Charles McMullen is warned by the words of James 4:17, which says: “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

And he entrenched himself still deeper in this disobedience by speaking at the Good Friday ecumenical ‘walk of witness’ in Lisburn.

Dear Christian, if you or anyone you know is involved with any of the churches specified in Lisburn or if you or your family or friends are involved with the Presbyterian Church, won’t you even share this with them or take this to heart and speak out against such grave departure from God?

2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

ABBA ‘prayer dancing’ Pete Greig and Rome loving Mike Pilavachi for Causeway Coast Vineyard conference

2 Timothy 4:2-4: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

Last week on ‘Protestant Revival’ we highlighted two of the inappropriate characters who will be “preaching” and leading “worship” at Causeway Coast Vineyard’s ‘Encounter More’ conference, which will run from Thursday, 23 to Saturday, 25 May.

They are Havilah Cunnington and Jeremy Riddle, representatives of that frankly frightening hotbed of charismatic deceit, Bethel Ministries, whose blasphemies you can get an idea of by clicking here.

We simply couldn’t go into enough detail in one post to outline all the heretical speakers who will be purporting to offer spiritual guidance to the poor attendees of Causeway Coast Vineyard, but we can reveal that more brazenly ecumenical and God-defying speakers and worship leaders will be held up and exalted by those in charge at Causeway Coast Vineyard Church.

They are Mike Pilavachi (pictured, top) and Beth and Andy Croft of Soul Survivor church and Pete Greig (pictured, below), who runs 24-7 Prayer.

Pete Greig, for any readers who aren’t aware, is an out and out compromiser with Rome and a leading figure in the ungodly charismatic excesses which, sadly, figure prominently in so much of professing Christendom.

Indeed, he is at the extreme end of this.

And that can be seen in the fact that he claims God told him that He, the Almighty God of heaven, the eternal, unchangeable God who cannot abide sin, was “quite enjoying” a group of young women dressed up for a night out on the town coming into a prayer room he was in charge of, turning the stereo up (why it was there in any event is a good question) and proceeding to prayer dance to a song by Swedish pop group ABBA.

They apparently put their own ‘religious’ words to one of ABBA’s seemingly well-known songs, Super Trouper.

This is a blasphemy, yet Pete Greig has the gall to claim, not only that it was an acceptable form of worship, but that it was given the seal of approval of God.

What an outrage!

Furthermore, Pete Greig has played an active role in helping the Roman Catholic Church lure more people in to its evil clutches.

Pete Greig addressed the diocesan assembly of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vienna in St Stephen’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in the Austrian capital.

Tweeting afterwards, Pete Greig said: “Truly wonderful time in Vienna addressing 1,700 bishops, nuns, priests, laity from every church in the Archdiocese. Extraordinary signs of renewal – ‘unthinkable 9 years ago’ says the Cardinal.”

So Pete Greig was rejoicing in helping and seeing an increase in the number of people coming under the pagan influence of Rome.

Not only that, the 24-7 Prayer organisation which he heads up is an indisputably ecumenical organisation.

And its leader in Ireland is none other than Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, lead pastor at the truly Christ-rejecting Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area.

That, in itself, says it all.

The Jesuit promoter that is Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson leads 24-7 Prayer Ireland and indeed had Pete Greig as a celebrity guest at Emmanuel Church’s ‘Tobar’ conference last year, showing the strong links between the pair.

As for Mike Pilavachi and his Soul Survivor church, this man is another confirmed ecumenist.

His Soul Survivor church hosts summer camps each year and every year since at least 2016 these camps have offered the Roman Catholic Mass, a grievous blasphemy against God.

The Roman Catholic catechism says this of the Mass: “Because it is the memorial of Christ’s Passover, the Eucharist is also a sacrifice. In the Eucharist Christ gives us the very body which he gave up for us on the cross, the very blood which he “poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.””

Rome claims they are making a sacrifice of Christ in the Mass, yet the Bible says this in Hebrews 10:11-12: “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God”.

Christ made “one sacrifice for sins for ever”, yet Rome repeatedly claims to be offering a sacrifice of Christ, thus serving to totally reject and blaspheme this most precious and crucial tenet of Scripture.

But Mike Pilavachi, whether he practices the Mass personally or not, serves to do the same by facilitating this blasphemous sacrifice.

But he will be offered an enthusiastic welcome to Causeway Coast Vineyard Church next week.

Mike Pilavachi has also demonstrated his enthusiasm for fellowshipping with heretics by being pictured alongside the Archbishop (read, Arch-apostate) of Canterbury, Justin Welby and Bishop Michael Curry, the sodomy-supporting American heretic who impressed the gullible and fellow-apostates at last year’s Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The trio are pictured together, below.

They were all at the main celebration of the utterly ecumenical ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative, founded by Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby and given the seal of approval of “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the Pope,

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ has devotionals to Mary accompanying it and Mike Pilavachi was the main speaker at the event.

So the Pope and Causeway Coast Vineyard Church have something (plenty of things, most likely) in common – they both promote events headlined by Mike Pilavachi.

That is very instructive.

Having the approval of the Pope is certainly not something any of us should want.

John 15:18-19 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.”

The Pope is undoubtedly “of the world” and will “love his own”. That would include the likes of Mike Pilavachi.

So why would Causeway Coast Vineyard want such characters as Pete Greig and Mike Pilavachi at their conference?

Well, Causeway Coast Vineyard’s previous lead pastor, Alan Scott, infamously said he was “all in” with the Pope during a sermon at Causeway Coast Vineyard.

And one of its leading figures, Peter Lynas (pictured, below), who also heads up the allegedly Evangelical Alliance, has repeatedly aligned himself with ecumenists and Romanists.

While it is little surprise to see a supposedly God-exalting church promote and fellowship with those who bring dishonour to the cause of Christ, it is imperative those who are saved and endeavouring to follow Christ take a stand against such error and compromise.

Psalm 94:16: “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”

God is asking the question and continues to ask it today – who will stand up, who will rise up for Him against those who act contrarily to His will?

Will we speak out against such falsehoods and their propagators? Or will we hold our peace?

Let us be bold and sound the alarm in this evil day and generation and refuse to sit by idly as such blasphemies are being committed in the name of Christ.

Joel 2:1: “Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain”.

Bangor Elim to give hero’s welcome to Pope performers Rend Collective

Acts 5:29: “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”

Amos 3:3: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

The supposedly ‘Christian’ rock band, Rend Collective, who performed for the Pope when he visited Dublin last year, will be welcomed back as heroes to Bangor Elim next week as they perform three concerts at that church.

Rend Collective will be on stage at Bangor Elim for three consecutive nights from Tuesday, 21 to Thursday, 23 May.

Indeed, sadly such was the demand to see this Papal pandering band that initially there was to be just two concerts, but a third was added after the first two sold out. Tickets cost £20 each.

Religious compromise certainly can be financially profitable, it would appear.

It is being billed as a hometown show as Rend Collective was born out of Bangor Elim in 2002.

Let us remind readers of the truly disgraceful compromise carried out by Rend Collective as they seek to please man rather than God.

Last August, during the visit of the Pope, who blasphemously calls himself the Vicar of Christ on earth, to Dublin, the allegedly God-exalting Rend Collective gladly accepted an invitation to be part of the entertainment for the crowds as they gathered in Phoenix Park to celebrate the Papal Mass.

So they have openly compromised with the false religion of Popery.

Then, in September, in a discussion with a transgender individual, they appeared to say it was “a sad thing” that certain churches would not allow a transgender person to lead worship or preach.

So they have openly compromised with the utterly godless LGBT lobby.

They also made a very telling statement at that time, saying that “in an attempt to foster unity we try not to be selective in who we partner with under the banner of the gospel”.

Sadly, they certainly got that right!

And to drive home that ecumenical spirit, we revealed in February that this summer, Rend Collective will perform at supposedly ‘Christian’ summer camps, ran by brazen ecumenist Mike Pilavachi’s Soul Survivor church, at which the Roman Catholic Mass is celebrated.

So they will once more openly compromise with ecumenists and Romanism.

Does Bangor Elim think all of these antics are acceptable?

Does Bangor Elim believe they should be promoting a band, regardless of its links to their church, which repeatedly engages with the pagan, anti-Christian system of Rome and which compromises with the sodomite lobby?

Gary Beattie is the lead pastor of Bangor Elim and has been since 2002, which, perhaps coincidentally, is the same year Rend Collective formed.

So, does Gary Beattie think all of these antics are acceptable?

Does Gary Beattie believe Bangor Elim should be promoting a band, regardless of its links to their church, which repeatedly engages with the pagan, anti-Christian system of Rome and which compromises with the sodomite lobby?

The sad and disgraceful compromise of Rend Collective has already been brought to the attention of Bangor Elim but what have they done?

Rather than rectifying the situation by cancelling the two (at that time) scheduled concerts and publicly repudiating the God-dishonouring actions of Rend Collective, what did Bangor Elim do? They organised a third concert.

Like Pharoah in the days of Moses and like the children of Israel in the times of their disobedience and apostasy, Bangor Elim stiffened their necks, and not only continued in their error, but added to it.

This is great foolishness.

Proverbs 12:15 says: “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.”

Proverbs 17:10 says: “A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.”

Proverbs 26:11 says: “As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.”

Had Bangor Elim not been deaf to the calls to dissociate themselves with Rend Collective, this ecumenical, compromising, people pleasing rock band, they would have been wise.

As it is, they have made it clear they are happy to reject what God has to say, through His Word, on matters of ecumenism, Romanism and transgenderism.

We are told, in Ephesians 5:11 that we are to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

Jude v 3 instructs us that we are to “earnestly contend for the faith”.

Yet here is Bangor Elim enthusiastically endorsing ecumenism by bringing in a band which seemingly, by their own admission, refuses to practice any form of spiritual discernment in whom they fellowship with.

We will also remind Bangor Elim, and Rend Collective, of what the Bible has to say regarding the teachings of the false religion of Romanism in the titles the Pope blasphemously takes upon himself.

The Pope calls himself the “Holy Father”, despite Jesus saying in Matthew 23:9: “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”

The Pope calls himself the “Pontiff”, meaning “bridge”, claiming he is a bridge between man and God, despite the Bible saying in 1 Timothy 2:5 that “there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

The Pope calls himself the “Vicar of Christ on earth”, despite that role belonging to the Holy Ghost, as evidenced in John 14:26, which says: “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

So the Pope blasphemes all three Persons of the Godhead, yet Bangor Elim is happy to welcome in Rend Collective, who have given credence to the Pope and his evil claims, as well as his church’s evil teachings, by performing at an event where the Pope was exalted and lifted up.

The notion of transgenderism is also clearly spoken of and rejected in God’s Word.

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

Deuteronomy 22:5: “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.”

The very notion, like that of sodomy, is an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22) in the eyes of God, yet Rend Collective said, in response to the previously referred to Twitter comments by a transgender individual that they wouldn’t be allowed to lead or preach in certain churches, that it was “very sad”.

What is “very sad” and indeed downright dangerous, is the influence held by Rend Collective over so many young (in particular) professing Christians.

The same minds which think it is “very sad” those whose lifestyle choices God describes as an “abomination” cannot lead or preach in some churches are conceiving the lyrics which many Christians, perhaps brothers and sisters, sons and daughters or grandchildren of readers, are singing away merrily in their spare time.

The same minds which think it is absolutely fine to give credence to the blasphemous claims and teachings of the Pope of Rome are conceiving the lyrics which are influencing the minds and Christian walks of brothers and sisters, sons and daughters or grandchildren of readers.

What a sad and, as we say, dangerous situation this is.

James 4:4: “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

It is difficult to imagine that everyone who attends Bangor Elim would concur with Rend Collective’s assessment that it is “very sad” that sodomites and transgender people cannot lead and preach in certain churches, their own included.

It is difficult to imagine that everyone who attends Bangor Elim would be content with religious association with the blasphemies of Rome.

We would encourage anyone who attends Bangor Elim who is reading this to make their voice heard loud and clear in opposition to this fearful compromise being carried out by Rend Collective and by their church.

And we would also encourage anyone reading this who knows anyone involved with Bangor Elim or knows anyone who listens to Rend Collective’s music to share this article with them and warn them against attending or supporting these concerts.

We ought to be separated from error, but Rend Collective have brazenly ignored the Scriptural call to do just that, but do not let yourself be caught up in both their and Bangor Elim’s disobedience to God.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

Isaiah 58:1: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

Canon David Skuce continues Romish compromise in his new church

A leading Anglican cleric in County Fermanagh has now exported his enthusiasm for ecumenism across the border into County Donegal.

Canon David Skuce (pictured, top), formerly the rector (or wrecker!) of Inishmacsaint Parish Church, near Derrygonnelly in west Fermanagh, has been instituted as the new rector of the grouped parish of Dunfanaghy, Raymunterdoney and Tullaghobegley (quite the mouthful!).

Canon David Skuce was a big fan of walking hand in hand with Rome during his time in Fermanagh, as we have previously highlighted.

In January last year, Canon David Skuce was the speaker at a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service in a Romanist chapel in Monea, a village in Fermanagh near to his previous clerical domain.

He then led an ecumenical service between Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in another nearby vilage, Boho, and Boho Parish Church on Good Friday last year.

Quite how anyone could jointly celebrate Christ’s “one sacrifice for sins for ever” (Hebrews 10:12) with the Roman Catholic Church, which denies this clear Scriptural precept with its blasphemous Mass and denies the all-sufficient blood atonement of Christ, is frankly outrageous.

This is compounded by the fact that Canon David Skuce’s church, the Church of Ireland, is supposedly governed by its 39 Articles, which call the Mass a “blasphemous fable” and a “dangerous deceit”.

Then, Canon David Skuce was promptly rewarded for his ecumenical betrayal of God’s Word and, indeed, his own church’s allegedly governing principles, by being promoted by the Bishop of Clogher, the Right Eejit John McDowell, another brazen Rome lover, to be the Chancellor of the Chapter of Clogher Cathedral.

He followed that up by then attending an ecumenical service in County Fermanagh on Pentecost Sunday last May at which “prayers of intercession” were offered by an emissary of Papal deceit, ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips.

And there he was in Dunfanaghy last week continuing his anti-Scriptural ministry.

Not one but two Papist deceivers took part in the service, the aforementioned ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips, whom Canon David Skuce had clearly brought along with him as he set his ecumenical stall out early in Donegal, and ‘Father’ Martin Doohan, the Parish Priest in Canon David Skuce’s new patch. No doubt the two will become fast friends.

‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips apparently read the gospel, even though his church denies it, and a further reading was made by that other practitioner of Papal priestcraft, ‘Father’ Martin Doohan.

This is, incidentally, also the parish which we previously highlighted on ‘Protestant Revival’ back in September following the departure of the previous minister in Dunfanaghy, Raymunterdoney and Tullaghobegley.

‘Father’ Martin Doohan was also centre stage on that occasion, praising the “great bond of friendship” in the town between himself, Rev David MacDonnell (pictured, above), the former rector there, and Dunfanaghy Presbyterian Church minister Rev Andrew Watson, a character whose Romish alliances you can read about by clicking here.

So it appears, sadly, that Canon David Skuce will be a good fit in his new home, bringing his brand of clerical compromise and religious treachery to a receptive audience.

At Rev David MacDonnell’s departure from Dunfanaghy, Churchwarden Patrick Knowles, who performed a reading on this occasion, had praised Rev David MacDonnell’s “inspirational” ministry, the highlights of which included the repointing of the church’s exterior and the installation of a new tiled floor inside the church.

So Canon David Skuce certainly has big shoes to fill. We hope he’s brought his toolbox!

It would appear his recipe book is another essential piece of luggage for Canon David Skuce as he crosses the border, as ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips told the congregation at his institution that Canon David Skuce is “an amazing cook”.

Other skills outlined during the service included his “caring attitude, his generosity with his time, his ability to listen and not to judge, his compassion, his sound advice, his calm nature, his friendship, his pastoral care”.

All very admirable in their place, but not one mention throughout the article on the Diocese of Derry and Raphoe website of a desire to make known the gospel of salvation through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.

Not one mention of a desire to see sinners saved and God’s name lifted up and glorified.

Sadly, this is not uncommon among so much of the professing church today and this refusal or failure to preach the need of salvation is causing so many people to be led astray.

Those in lofty positions bringing judgment on those whose best interests they ought to have at heart is spoken of in the Bible.

Isaiah 9:15-16 says: “The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.”

We are all under judgment of God for our sins, but we can be forgiven if we repent of our sins.

Romans 3:23-27: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say , at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.”

Sadly this message is all too often neglected, ignored or rejected in so many churches, never mind among the general populace, and this is a sign of a minister who was not sent by Christ.

Jeremiah 14:14: “Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.”

Fellowshipping with the pagan idolatry of Rome comes from the deceit of the heart of any minister who practices or encourages it, it is a thing of nought and will be shown to be so.

And what a fearful judgment awaits any minister who fails to warn of the judgment of God for sin.

Ezekiel 33:6: “But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”

If anyone reading this is involved with a church caught up in ecumenical activities or even is a minister who is helping lead such, won’t you even heed this warning now?

What a fearful thing it would be to fall into the hands of an angry God.

Psalm 7:11 says God is “angry with the wicked every day”.

We are all wicked, Jeremiah 17:9 tells us that “the heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Not one of us is without sin and if we say we are, then we “deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8).

There is no other way to heaven than by asking for forgiveness of our sins.

It is not achieved by good works, kind words, a listening ear, church attendance, tithing, fulfilling the sacramental demands of a church, it is simply by praying to God for forgiveness of sins in true repentance and placing your faith and trust in Him and the blood of His precious Son.

Won’t you do that even today?

1 John 1:9: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Blasphemous bishop teaches salvation by baptism in Londonderry Church of Ireland

Romans 3:24-25: “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God”.

Children being Confirmed in the Church of Ireland in Londonderry and Donegal have been blasphemously told they have received “a new life in God” after being baptised.

The children were told they would be transformed by the experience of baptism and would “never be the same”.

These dangerous blasphemies came from the mouth of the American Bishop of Central Florida, the Right Reverend Greg Brewer (pictured, top).

He was speaking at Confirmation services in Conwal Parish Church in Letterkenny, County Donegal and Glendermott Parish Church in Londonderry.

Right Reverend Greg Brewer was a guest of the Bishop of Derry and Raphoe, Rev Ken (No) Good (pictured, below), so you could be sure the poor children were going to get a bum steer in any event.

After all, Bishop Ken (No) Good is a devoted ecumenist, spending much of his career openly courting and liaising with the deceits and deceivers of Rome.

Bishop Ken (No) Good places great emphasis on his cosy relationship with the Romanist Bishop of Derry, Donal McKeown, and you can read of their mutual appreciation by clicking here.

You can also click here to read of his outrageous leading of not one, but two God-defying Week of Prayer for Christian Unity services in Romanist chapels back in January.

And there he was on Sunday, 8 April recommending that young children believe the heresies espoused by Right Reverend Greg Brewer that they are transformed by baptism.

The Scripture quotation at the top of this article very clearly articulates the truth of the gospel that we are justified, or made right in the sight of God, through His grace and by faith in the blood shed by Christ at Calvary.

We are further reminded in Ephesians that our salvation comes by no means other than by faith in Christ. There is no merit in any of our works.

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

Baptism is a worthwhile symbol of a devotion of our life to God, publicly stating we have renounced our sin and the temporary pleasures of the world to live a life separated unto Him, but baptism is worthless without a true devotion to God.

John the Baptist even bears the name of the process in the title popularly given to him, but what was the message he preached?

We are told this in Mark 1:4, which says: “John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.”

John preached that we had to repent of our sins, that was the baptism he preached. He didn’t preach of special merit in the water, that is a Papist deceit and one which the Church of Ireland itself has done much to propagate.

This is the official teaching of the Roman Catholic Church on baptism, as stated in its Catechism.

“Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God.”

This is a wretched lie, but this is the same lie that this Episcopalian compromiser was telling the poor young children in Letterkenny and Londonderry.

So many people today believe that being confirmed and baptised in the church will help get you into heaven, this is a sad deceit and one which Bishop Ken (No) Good is, at best, helping propagate and one which this American Bishop, Greg Brewer, is actively promoting.

Does Bishop Ken (No) Good believe in baptismal regeneration? If he doesn’t, then he is a coward for failing to speak out against it, for there is certainly no record of him doing so in the report on the Diocese of Derry and Raphoe’s website.

Indeed, the report speaks in glowing terms of both pontificating pastors, saying the young children being Confirmed were “doubly blessed” by the presence of both men.

That is certainly a “blessing” we could all do without!

These are the quotes attributed to Right Reverend Greg Brewer, who is apparently currently on sabbatical in the UK.

He said: “We believe deeply, with all our hearts, when we do these very simple things like pouring water on the head of a child or laying hands on these people that God is doing something bigger – far better – than anything you could ever conceive or imagine.

“One thing I do know: you’ll never be the same, but – given the possibilities – why would you even want to be, when what is in front of you is freedom, joy and a new life in God?”

A new life in God comes through repentance of sins and placing our faith and trust in Him.

Have these 30 young people done that? It would certainly not be a surprise if they hadn’t, given they are being taught here there is no need for them to do so.

What a dreadful harvest has already been reaped and will continue to be reaped by the apostasy of so much of mainstream Protestantism.

And what a fearful thing it is to think of all the people who were told as children that baptism and confirmation would be enough for them who are now in hell or are on their way there.

There is coming a day when many, taught lies, will hear the words of judgment from God contained in Matthew 7:21-23 when Jesus said: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Dear reader, don’t let you, your children or even your grandchildren fall victim to the lies and deceits of clerical compromisers and religious reprobates, don’t let them send you, your child or your grandchild to hell.

Just follow the simple words of Acts 16:31 and “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”.

And for those ministers who fail to speak of the need for every soul to come humbly in penitence to Christ, there is a fierce warning contained within God’s Word.

Ezekiel 33:6 says: “But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”

Don’t let some old wolf in sheep’s clothing send you blindly on your way to hell, come to Christ for salvation.

We are told in John 6:37 by Jesus Himself that “him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out”.

Won’t you repent of your sin even today and be saved?

Presbyterian minister new leader of ecumenical den of iniquity, Corrymeela

Ezekiel 13:2-5, 8-10: “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God. And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord God. Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace”.

A Presbyterian minister has taken over as the new Leader of the Corrymeela Community, the leading hub of ecumenical compromise in our land.

The Rev Alex Wimberly (pictured, top) has taken up the role which pays in the region of £50,000 per year, replacing outgoing Leader, the sodomite Romanist Padraig O Tuama.

Now, if you knew nothing else of the Corrymeela Community, the fact that its previous leader was a sodomite Romanist would tell you all you need to know.

The teachings of the Church of Rome are utterly repugnant to the Word of God.

The Mass, Purgatory, Mariolatry, offering of prayers for the dead, idolatry, relics and, worst of all, denial of salvation by faith alone, all mark Rome out as utterly contrary to Christianity.

Sodomy, meanwhile, is so obviously classed as a grave sin by God that for any to try to say otherwise demonstrates an individual who has rejected the Bible.

For those who perhaps may not be overly aware of the Corrymeela Community, it is an avowedly ecumenical organisation seeking to promote religious unity between Protestants and Catholics.

It has been weaving its web of deceit from its base on the north coast of Northern Ireland, in the town of Ballycastle, for more than 50 years.

Indeed, the supposedly Protestant Presbyterian Church has been instrumental in propagating this anti-Christian organisation from the outset.

Its first Leader and founder was Rev Ray Davey, a Presbyterian minister. He was replaced as Leader by Rev John Morrow, another Presbyterian minister, who had also played a key role in the foundation of the den of deceit in Ballycastle.

It is interesting to note that the centre was founded in 1965, several years before the euphemistically entitled ‘Troubles’ (read, armed Romanist uprising against the lawful rulers of the land) began.

Given Corrymeela loves to position itself as some sort of conflict resolution centre, it is very instructive it was founded before the bloodshed began, further demonstrating this was a place set up to promote ecumenical compromise.

And now we have another Presbyterian minister taking the leading role in rejecting the Word of God.

Rev Alex Wimberly was formerly the minister of McCracken Memorial Presbyterian Church in Belfast, spreading his ecumenical nonsense there for seven years, before taking up a role as chaplain at Corrymeela.

Has he been chucked out of the Presbyterian Church? What do you think?

The Presbyterian Church seems to tolerate all sorts of inappropriate characters in its pulpits and in association with it.

There is Rev Steve Stockman, a brazen ecumenist and organiser of the ungodly Four Corners Festival, who is the long-time minister of Fitzroy Presbyterian Church.

Then you have Rev Lesley Carroll (pictured, above), former minister of Fortwilliam and Macrory Presbyterian Church in Belfast who was Deputy Chief Commissioner of the Equality Commission throughout the Asher’s Bakery saga.

Add to that the likes of ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes and Rev John Dickinson (pictured, below), the great Carnmoney crowd surfer, who both have given their backing to LGBT campaigner and so-called Christian, Vicky Beeching.

There are others we could name, but this is surely plenty to cause serious alarm among any who subscribe to the Presbyterian Church.

There are many warnings in Scripture about refusing to deal with sin.

One of the most clear of these can be found in God’s dealing with the children of Israel in the book of Judges.

They were instructed to utterly drive out those who worshipped false gods.

They failed to do so and God’s judgement fell.

Judges 2:2-3: “And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this? Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.”

By making peace with sin, the Presbyterian Church put itself in this position.

Will the Presbyterian Church make any moves to oppose such wickedness being carried out by one of its ordained ministers at a centre devoted to compromise with Rome?

We would encourage all readers to make their objections to this situation known clearly by contacting directly their own local Presbyterian minister, whether you are a Presbyterian or not, and also to contact the Clerk of the Presbyterian Church, Rev Trevor Gribben.

You can do this in a number of ways:

1. By writing to Assembly Buildings, 2-10 Fisherwick Place, Belfast, BT1 6DW

2. By emailing clerk@presbyterianireland.org

3. By phoning (028) 9041 7208

Don’t let them fob you off by saying Rev Alex Wimberly’s role is independent of the Presbyterian Church, he remains a minister of the Presbyterian Church.

Will the Presbyterian Church take any stand against Rev Alex Wimberly assuming the role of leading ecumenism in Northern Ireland?

This is a very important question and we can rightly make the challenge to the Presbyterian Church, just as Joshua did to the children of Israel, outlined in Joshua 24:15.

It says: “Choose you this day whom ye will serve”.

Going by its previous track record, this church has chosen apostasy.

Regardless of what the Presbyterian Church does or doesn’t do, let us be determined to serve the Lord and have the same resolution as did Joshua at the end of that same verse.

Let us say, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”.
