Redeemer Central Church introduces the Romanist ‘Stations of the Cross’

The Romeward march by so much of professing Christendom continues at pace, and this is no more evident than in the disgraceful situation whereby a charismatic church in Belfast is celebrating the idolatrous Romanist practice of the ‘Stations of the Cross’.

It is scarcely believable, yet that is what is being carried out this week by Redeemer Central Church, which is based on Donegall Street in central Belfast.

From 14 to 21 April, Redeemer Central is displaying on the outside wall of its building, posters of the Stations of the Cross.

This is an overtly Romanist custom, one which is carried out by devout Roman Catholics under the sad and false apprehension that they will receive a “plenary indulgence” for praying at each of them consecutively.

So the Stations of the Cross are part of the false Romanist gospel of earning your salvation.

And this is what Redeemer Central are holding up as a thing to be copied and applied to the lives of Christians? What an outrage.

For those who are unaware, the origins of the Stations of the Cross come from the Franciscan Order of Roman Catholic monks, and began to be popularised within Romanism during the 15th and 16th centuries.

They were based upon what they believed to be the route taken by Jesus to Calvary in Jerusalem, a route on which many Romanist pilgrimages were held.

In 1686, Pope Innocent XI (a most inappropriate name for any in the position which leads poor lost souls to hell) allowed the Franciscans to erect stations within their churches, a right extended in 1731 to all Romanist churches by Pope Clement XII.

And so the idolatrous practice spread, with the Stations often reproduced on windows in Romanist chapels, although there are often images and idols accompanying them.

This is, of course, an outrage against God and His Commandments.

The second of the Ten Commandments expressly forbids this, though Rome has somewhat conveniently omitted the Second Commandment from its Bible, instead splitting up what Protestants know as the Tenth Commandment into two.

Exodus 20:4-6 says: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

It’s pretty unequivocal, isn’t it? But it doesn’t fit in with Romanist deceit and idolatry so it has to go.

And Redeemer Central is joining in on this idolatry with these posters pasted to their outer wall.

Let’s remember what the Second Commandment says. It precludes the creation of “any likeness of any thing” as part of worship, yet this is exactly what they have plastered upon their walls, proudly displaying their idolatry for all to see.

God hates all sin, but it is also provoking to him for it to be done so brazenly.

This was his condemnation of the children of Israel in the days of Jeremiah, when he said in Jeremiah 2:34: “I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.”

The sin was done openly, no thorough examination to see what faults or sins were prevalent was required, people were brazen in their sin.

And how was God going to repay such behaviour? All their machinations and activities, which they thought they would gain by, would come to nothing.

Jeremiah 2:35-37: “Yet thou sayest, Because I am innocent, surely his anger shall turn from me. Behold, I will plead with thee, because thou sayest, I have not sinned. Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way? thou also shalt be ashamed of Egypt, as thou wast ashamed of Assyria. Yea, thou shalt go forth from him, and thine hands upon thine head: for the Lord hath rejected thy confidences, and thou shalt not prosper in them.”

These are words which Redeemer Central, and in particular its lead pastor, David Armstrong, would do well to heed.

When the Reformation broke out, the shackles of Romanism were overthrown but yet so many churches are throwing themselves back headlong into the superstition and pagan ritual of that anti-Christian church.

Paul warned against such folly.

Galatians 5:1 says: “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

Such unrighteousness and foolishness was also warned against by God in Old Testament times.

Jeremiah 11:10 says: “They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.”

The iniquities of our forefathers are being embraced once more by those who are either ignorant of the past and God’s Word, or who have consciously chosen to reject it, or both.

Romanism is darkness, it is Christ rejection, and David Armstrong and all who help lead at or attend Redeemer Central need to repudiate this grave blasphemy against God.

The posters have been created by USA based artist Scott Erickson, who is quoted on the Redeemer Central website saying: “The Stations of the Cross began as a practice that pilgrims would have when they were retracing Jesus’ final steps in Jerusalem up to the hill where he was crucified. Wanting to share that practice and experience with people who couldn’t make the trip to Jerusalem, they created these stations of meditation that became in itself a tradition. You can find this tradition on the inside of many churches today.”

Sounds fairly similar to the details we provided further up in this article, doesn’t it?

However, there is a crucial difference, neither Scott Erickson nor Redeemer Central explain that it is a Roman Catholic practice and the “they” who “created these stations of meditation” were Papist monks.

This is the deceitfulness behind so many of these practices, because the vast majority of people who attend these charismatic churches are nominally Protestant and these churches are concerned some of those who attend would recoil from this.

It is the same tactic as was employed by Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, below) of Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area when he was busy promoting Jesuit founder and Counter Reformation leader Ignatius of Loyola, which you can read about by clicking here.

These are some of the honeyed, deceitful words uttered by Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson when promoting following the example of such an evil character.

He said: “It’s through him (Ignatius of Loyola) that when he goes to university in Paris and he starts to gather a few friends and they start to pray and get passionate for Jesus together that they start this, what we know as the Jesuits, or the Society of Jesus, which has gone on to send missionaries all over the world.

“So remember this is probably round the time of the Reformation, so they’re all trying to work it out.

“There’s been huge problems with the church of that day. The Reformation has been a reaction to that but also within that there was certain moments and certain men like this who wanted the real thing, who wanted Jesus more than anything else pushed into his heart, pushed into his presence, were changed and transformed and led others in it.”

Alain Emerson neglected to say the Jesuits are a Romanist order and in his deliberately vague references to the Reformation he sought to mislead those in attendance.

Given he and Redeemer Central use the same tactics, it is highly unsurprising to see Alain Emerson retweeting Redeemer Central’s tweet promoting this Papist practice.

And for any who want to see any other issues with Redeemer Central, as if their Papist practices wasn’t enough, we would advise checking out an article by Cecil Andrews of Take Heed Ministries, which you can read by clicking here.

His references to what is known as ‘spiritual formation’ are particularly noteworthy, and he links to an excellent article from there highlighting how this is really a Romanist practice given a very thin veneer of Christianity.

Many of the inspirations behind it are the type whose quotes are often tweeted by those involved in the charismatic emerging church movement, Romanists such as Henri Nouwen and Ignatius of Loyola, both of whom Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is very keen on.

These Papish practices are being reintroduced to churches and all true children of God who have a proper regard for His Word need to speak out and take a stand against them.

The souls of the adherents to these churches are at stake; they are being taught to follow the practices of the founder of the Jesuits, they are being taught there is merit in “meditating” around the Stations of the Cross, they are being denied proper preaching and teaching of God’s Word which would make them “wise unto salvation” (2 Timothy 3:15).

Let us pray with fervour that these people will be delivered from such gatherings and let us be diligent in warning others of the dangers, even by sharing this article or pointing people to the Scriptures which so clearly point out the errors of these churches.

Praise God we have been contacted by people who have spoken of how articles even on this page have prompted them to separate themselves from apostasy and challenge those who are seeking to bring it in to their churches.

May many more be moved by the Holy Ghost to do likewise and may many more be moved to take their stand for Christ outside the camp.

Jude v 22-23: “And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.”

Peter Lynas and Evangelical Alliance join forces with Jesuit promoter Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson

Jeremiah 14:10-14: “Thus saith the Lord unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the Lord doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins. Then said the Lord unto me, Pray not for this people for their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence. Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place. 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.”

Much polluted worship is offered up in our land today and, like the Pharisees of old, those behind it think “that they shall be heard for their much speaking” (Matthew 7:7).

Many believe that simply invoking the name of Christ will be sufficient to ensure their utterances reach the courts of heaven.

However, Psalm 66:18 tells us that “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me”.

And surely such a peril lies before those organisers of the prayer event held at the gates of Stormont, the would-be seat of power in Northern Ireland, were we not held to ransom by murderers and their apologists, on Sunday past, 24 March.

The event was organised by 24-7 Prayer Ireland, which is an ungodly organisation in the first place.

It is headed up by Alain Emerson (pictured on the right of the image at the top of this article), lead pastor of the anti-Christian charismatic Emmanuel Church, based in the Craigavon area.

Alain Emerson’s ecumenical rap sheet is so long it would make your eyes water, hence his richly deserved moniker of Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

You can read his lengthy list of betrayal of the gospel of Jesus Christ by clicking here, which reached its nadir (thus far!) back in November when he engaged in whole-hearted promotion of that wretched Romanist Ignatius of Loyola.

He is, of course, the man who founded the dreadful Jesuit order of priests set up specifically to lead the Counter Reformation, which fought to suppress the glorious light of the gospel, so wonderfully unveiled by God through Martin Luther and others.

Ignatius of Loyola’s Jesuit order led the centuries long, bloody Inquisition, in which untold millions of Protestants, Jews and Muslims were murdered simply for not being Romanists.

But Ignatius of Loyola is a great “dude”, according to Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

And on Sunday past he was leading this ungodly event under the auspices of 24-7 Prayer, which was held to, ostensibly, petition God to intervene and restore working government at Stormont and allow everyone to agree over the interminable ‘Brexit’ saga.

Presumably they believe God wants the murderers and apologists for murder of Sinn Fein to reassume control of our affairs.

Another leading figure in the religious deceit spreading throughout our land, ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas (pictured on the left of the image at the top of this article), was also heartily promoting this event.

‘Papist’ Peter Lynas is another whose ecumenical rap sheet is the length of your arm, and you can read all about that by clicking here.

He is the leader of the Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland and is a senior figure at Causeway Coast Vineyard Church in Coleraine, County Londonderry.

Alain Emerson’s Emmanuel Church is a member of the Evangelical Alliance, and the strong links between him and Peter Lynas were further demonstrated on Sunday past when he publicly expressed his support for, and attended, this initiative.

Peter Lynas tweeted after the event, saying it was “so great to be part of this”.

And indeed, beforehand, he actually appeared in a video alongside Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson or, as he matily referred to him in the video, “Ally”.

Ironically, Alain Emerson is also an ally of Peter Lynas in the ecumenical deceit spreading throughout Ulster.

In that video, and another posted by Peter Lynas afterwards, he talks about people joining with “us”, putting himself as one of the senior figures in bringing this event together.

Now, there is nothing wrong with praying for our country, in fact it is Scriptural, but does Peter Lynas think that fellowshipping with a man who promotes the founder of the Jesuits and has repeatedly engaged with Romanism is going to achieve anything beneficial for Northern Ireland?

Peter Lynas, mind you, doesn’t seem to be too worried about raising a voice against Rome. Instead, he praised professing Christians such as the then Presbyterian Moderator, Rev Charles McMullen, for toddling down to Dublin to cower before the Pope.

With this constant rejection of God’s Word, can there be any excuse for being involved with the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church, or indeed any Vineyard Church, Emmanuel Church in Lurgan or Portadown in County Armagh, or any church which is a member of the Evangelical Alliance?

Scripturally, there is no excuse.

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 says we are to “earnestly contend for the faith”.

We cannot do that when we are wrapped up in churches who very clearly set themselves up in opposition to the Bible.

Let us not forget, as unfortunately so many in our country seem to have done, that Rome, to this very day, denies the all-sufficient death of Christ at Calvary and pronounces its curse on those who believe that precious doctrine.

Rome teaches of a fictitious holding cell between heaven and hell called Purgatory, it teaches of prayer to Mary and long dead so-called saints, it teaches of the worshipping of idols and images and practises the blatant blasphemy of the Mass, in which they offer Christ up as a sacrifice again and again and again.

All of these teachings are Biblically illiterate and repugnant to the Word of God.

So why do ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson so willingly and gleefully work alongside them?

Dear reader that is a question we would love you to put to them, particularly if you or some connection of yours is in any way linked to any of the churches they represent, and that includes any whose church is in the Evangelical Alliance. You can find out which churches are members of the Evangelical Alliance by clicking here.

Won’t you even challenge your religious leaders about their involvement in such an organisation, if they are in the Evangelical Alliance, and won’t you even contact these men directly to challenge them on their persistent, repeated unscriptural activities and alliances?

You can contact Alain Emerson by emailing alain@emmanuel-church.co.uk and you can contact Peter Lynas at nireland@eauk.org and mark your correspondence for his attention and no doubt it will reach him.

Let us not be afraid to speak out in this day of apostasy to challenge those who serve to undermine the cause of Christ in our land.

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

Newtownbreda Baptist joins ‘intoxicated’ evangelist and the charismania delusion

Joshua 23:16: “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.”

It is always sad to see a church engaged in activities which are utterly at odds with the Word of God, but it is especially distressing when it happens in a church which is part of a denomination many expect more from.

It is distressing for two key reasons; the first being simply that it is sad for any church to bring dishonour to the cause of Christ and the second is that denomination’s name offers it protection against automatic suspicion from the average child of God.

This is the case with Newtownbreda Baptist Church, based in east Belfast, as it continues to reject the Biblical command of separation from falsehood.

Indeed, not only that, but Newtownbreda Baptist Church, whose minister is Pastor Trevor Ramsey (pictured, top), is actively engaged in promoting those who teach and themselves engage with falsehood.

In recent months we have highlighted Newtownbreda Baptist Church’s membership of the Evangelical Alliance, headed up by that ecumenical cheerleader Peter Lynas, whom you can read about by clicking here.

Not only is the leader of that grouping in Northern Ireland a fan of liaising with Popery, but many of its members stand proudly in open defiance of God.

Not least among these is the Emmanuel Church, based in the Craigavon area, whose lead pastors, Alain Emerson, Philip Emerson and Dave Wylie are all open Bible rejecters.

Alain Emerson promoted the teachings of Counter Reformation leader Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Romanist Jesuit order, among many other anti-Christian actions, while Philip Emerson and Dave Wylie were guest speakers at the ungodly New Wine Conference and Dave Wylie described a Papist monk as one of the “heroes of church history”.

King’s Church in Bangor is another inappropriate member of any grouping which would claim to be Christian, given its leader, Glen Mitchell, denies the Biblical account of creation.

This was brought to Newtownbreda Baptist Church and Trevor Ramsey’s attention, yet they chose to cover their ears rather than address the sin in the camp.

Indeed, Newtownbreda Baptist Church responded by bringing in Peter Lynas just a few weeks later as a special guest speaker, and he held a meeting where he promoted the document he produced about what he recommends be the church’s response to transgenderism and sodomy. His ill-advised, to put it generously, suggestion was the provision of “trans” accessible toilets in churches.

And since then Newtownbreda Baptist Church has brought in a stand-up comedian to “preach” at another Sunday night service, a concept utterly at odds with the Word of God, which you can read about by clicking here.

Now, Newtownbreda Baptist Church is proudly advertising another God-defying event they have lined up, involving a host of churches, none of which are in any way appropriate to be linking up with.

The event is entitled, ‘Just One’, which is certainly a fine name for an ecumenical venture, and involves Crown Jesus Ministries, Christian Fellowship Church (CFC) Belfast, Willowfield Parish Church, Orangefield Presbyterian Church and UT Belfast, a Pentecostal grouping, as well as, of course, Newtownbreda Baptist Church.

It is scheduled to take place on Sunday, 2 June in CS Lewis Square (another inappropriate spiritual guide) in east Belfast.

And the special speaker at this charismatic nirvana is a man called Canon J John (pictured, below), a celebrity preacher who is an honorary canon in the utterly apostate Church of England.

According to his Wikipedia page, Canon J John has spoken in such churches as Hillsong Australia and Hillsong New York, as well as Holy Trinity Brompton.

Hillsong, of course, preaches a false gospel, which you can read some more of here. Additionally, one of its leading figures, Joel Timothy Houston, posted his endorsement of the Christ-denying Big Bang Theory on Twitter.

Holy Trinity Brompton, meanwhile, is the clerical domain of Alpha Course leader Nicky Gumbel, who back in January we highlighted fawning over a Romanist Cardinal and congratulating him on organising a Papal visit to the Philippines.

Canon J John’s fame really took off when he took it upon himself to rewrite the Ten Commandments, something which he claims was “a God idea”.

So, “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain”, has become “take God seriously” and “Thou shalt not steal” has been changed to “prosper with a clear conscience”, and so on.

What a disgrace that is. Not only has he changed God’s Word and have the cheek to say God told him to do it, he has taken away from it and created a meaningless, vague mess.

Canon J John and every church which is inviting him to Belfast in June would do well to remember these words.

Revelation 22:18-19: “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

Indeed, Canon J John has previously described himself as being “intoxicated” after attending an event led by arch-heretic Rodney Howard-Browne, who describes himself as the “Holy Ghost bartender”, back in the late 1990s, whom you can read more about by clicking here.

In an article on the ‘Take Heed Ministries’ website (which you can read by clicking here), it is pointed out that a July 1997 edition of a magazine called ‘Charisma’ outlines Canon J John’s involvement in the sham that is known as the ‘Toronto Blessing’.

“In his pursuit of God, J John had acquired a yearning for more. Eager to go forward at Toronto-style revival meetings he was disappointed to find that everyone but him – even those praying for him – seemed to be falling over.

“Then evangelical bible-teacher and friend R T Kendall introduced John to Rodney Howard-Browne, one of the pioneers of the renewal movement. Later John was invited to one of Howard Browne’s camp meetings in St Louis. It was the fourth meeting before he saw a breakthrough. After speaking from the platform John suddenly felt ‘intoxicated'”.

So Canon J John actively sought to be filled with the delusions of Toronto, desiring to “fall over” under the influence of some practitioner of deceit like Rodney Howard-Browne.

And he delighted in being “intoxicated”, which surely would send out alarm bells to any true child of God.

So this gives us an idea of the character and message, and indeed the destiny if he doesn’t repent, of the man headlining this charismatic festival.

And what of the churches besides Newtownbreda Baptist Church who are involved?

Well, Orangefield Presbyterian Church is currently running the Alpha Course, which is of course replete with leaven, polluting the purity of the gospel message. UT Belfast is also currently running the ungodly Alpha Course.

Crown Jesus Ministries and Christian Fellowship Church Belfast are typical charismatic fluff preaching churches, with CFC Belfast actually hosting a conference last June headlined by Paul Manwaring of the infamous USA based Bethel Church, practitioners of all manner of distressing exercises, some of which you can read about by clicking here.

And Willowfield Parish Church is one of the terribly modern Church of Ireland fellowships, which has copied the pleasing to the senses style of the charismatics to draw in the punters.

Its minister is Rev David McClay, the man behind the wretched New Wine Conference, to which he invites Papists each year to spread their Romish deceits and make the anti-Christian machinery of the Vatican more palatable to undiscerning so-called Protestants.

These are the churches involved, this is the man involved, so why oh why is a Baptist Church throwing itself headlong into such an ungodly mess?

That is a question for Newtownbreda Baptist Church and its leadership, not least Pastor Trevor Ramsey.

Will they or he answer it?

In our experience with this church and many others, they are not interested in directly addressing the issue, instead choosing to deflect.

Of course, there is coming a day when all ministers who fail to honour God will have to answer for their actions.

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.”

In the meantime, let us even now turn our attention to warning everyone we know, both by sharing this article and by word of mouth, about this shameful event which is planned by these churches in east Belfast.

‘Who cares if you’re Protestant or Catholic? Rome is an inspiration’, says Arch-apostate of Canterbury

Jeremiah 2:8, 11-13: “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. Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the Lord. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.”

Such is the rotten nature of so much of the professing church today, it is difficult to be truly surprised by what religious leaders say.

It can certainly be shocking, but rarely is it surprising.

However, the Archbishop (though Arch-apostate would be more accurate) of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has managed to do just that after he said how wonderful it is if Church of England clerics switch to be servants of Rome.

It may perhaps not be especially surprising that this is his view, given his disgraceful ecumenical track record, but what is surprising is how he has chosen to publicly articulate that view.

In a shocking rejection of the precious gospel heritage the entire UK is blessed to have, when asked his opinion on Church of England vicars switching to Rome, the following is what this reprobate had to say:

“Who cares? I don’t mind about all that. Particularly if people go to Rome, which is such a source of inspiration.

“I had an email from a very old friend, an Anglican priest who has decided to go to Rome. I wrote back saying: ‘how wonderful! As long as you are following your vocation, you are following Christ’.

“It’s just wonderful. What we need is for people to be disciples of Jesus Christ. I don’t really care whether it’s the Church of England or Rome or the Orthodox or Pentecostals or the Lutherans or Baptists.

“They are faithful disciples of Christ.”

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby, let us say this now – you are a disgrace.

Rome, to this very day, outright rejects and places its curse (not that we care one iota about Rome’s curse, we’d be more concerned by its blessing) on any who teach or believe the precious Scriptural doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

They cannot be “faithful disciples of Christ” when they deny his all-sufficient sacrifice on the cross at Calvary. They are Christ rejecters and so is Arch-apostate Welby by saying what he has said.

It is strange that any church leader should applaud his ministers for leaving.

It is stranger still that he should say it is “particularly” wonderful if they go to Rome.

Why should that be so?

Romanism is totally at odds with true Christianity, it is a pagan corruption.

Rome teaches of prayers for the dead and to so-called ‘Saints’, it teaches of the exaltation of the Pope, it teaches of the fictitious holding cell between heaven and hell they call purgatory, it teaches of the blasphemous worship of Mary, it teaches of the idolatrous adoration of relics and statues, and as we have already said, it teaches of a works-based salvation.

These are all utterly repugnant to any true Christian.

If Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby doesn’t find these repugnant, there is a clear conclusion to be drawn.

Let us remind Arch-apostate Welby of the 39 Articles which are supposedly the governing principles of his church and which he, as the most senior figure worldwide of the church, is supposed to be foremost in upholding.

Article 11, on the justification of man, says “we are accounted righteous before God, only for the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith, and not for our own works or deservings.”

Rome outright denies this, so how can Arch-apostate Welby support such heresy or those who switch to a church teaching such heresy?

Article 19, speaking of the church, has this to say regarding Rome. It says: “As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, have erred, so also the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.”

Arch-apostate Welby clearly doesn’t believe Rome has erred, otherwise he would mourn the loss of ministers to Rome. Instead, he calls Rome an “inspiration”.

Article 22, speaking of purgatory, says the following: “The 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.”

Prayer to saints, the adoration of relics and images and purgatory are all, by Arch-apostate Welby’s churches governing principles, “vainly invented” and “repugnant to the Word of God”.

How can Justin Welby remain in his position? How can it be deemed proper that such a character remain in situ?

He truly is like the prophets in the Scripture passage at the head of this article, he has “walked after things that do not profit”.

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby is a broken cistern which can hold no water.

He is the encapsulation of the Saviour’s warning regarding the false teachers of his day.

Matthew 15:14 says: “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

Christ told His followers to stay well clear of the false teachers as they will lead those who follow them into the ditch.

And that is where Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby is heading headlong for.

You may say you are not in the Church of England and you do not support this man, but are you in the Church of Ireland? If so, your church is implicated by being part of the Anglican communion.

Even if not, does your church or church leader consider Justin Welby an admirable man to follow?

How can you know, you might ask?

Well, does your church take part in the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative started by Justin Welby just a few years ago? It is an overtly ecumenical event for which the Roman Catholic Church is fully on board, so much so they have devised ‘Novenas’ to accompany the festival.

One such church heavily implicated in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area.

Their lead pastor, Alain Emerson, organised the largest ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ gathering in Northern Ireland, which was held at the hub of ecumenical deceit of May Street Presbyterian Church in Belfast, which you can read about by clicking here.

We need to be separated from those who work iniquity in our land and from those who have rejected the truth of the Bible to cosy up with the likes of the Church of Rome, which knows only how to send its poor deluded adherents to hell.

Revelation 18:4-5: “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. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

Alpha Course conference and Nicky Gumbel celebrate Papal Mass

The Alpha Course has for some years now been a favoured method by which many churches seek to attract in new people.

‘That’s fantastic’, some might say. ‘Who wouldn’t want to see churches growing and attracting in new people?’

The problem, of course, is that the Alpha Course, while offering much that is perfectly orthodox, thus enticing the unsuspecting, is also contaminated with a significant amount of leaven.

And, as we are told in Galatians 5:9: “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”

What is that leaven? Well, it very much relies on emotionialism and puts an over emphasis on the Holy Spirit to the detriment of focusing on the blood of Jesus Christ, which alone can atone for sin.

This is a common feature of much of the charismatic movement and the Alpha Course’s leader, Nicky Gumbel (pictured, top), falls very much into the charismatic category.

A 1994 Time Magazine article entitled “Laughing for the Lord” says:

“It’s Sunday evening in London’s fashionable Knightsbridge neighborhood. Though pathetically tiny flocks of Londoners attend many Anglican services, Holy Trinity Brompton has a standing-room-only turnout of 1500. After the usual Scripture readings, prayers and singing, the chairs are cleared away. Curate Nicky Gumbel prays that the Holy Spirit will come upon the congregation. Soon a woman begins laughing. Others gradually join her with hearty belly laughs. A young worshipper falls to the floor, hands twitching. Another falls, then another and another. Within half an hour there are bodies everywhere as supplicants sob, shake, roar like lions, and strangest of all laugh uncontrollably. This frenzied display has become known as the ‘laughing revival’ or ‘Toronto Blessing’. After first appearing at Holy Trinity only last May, laughing revivals have been reported in Anglican parishes from Manchester to York to Brighton.”

Does that sound much like true worship of the almighty, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God?

How can roaring like a lion and laughing like a hyena be in any way pleasing to God? Where is such nonsense found in the Bible?

The answer of course is that it is not found in the Bible.

Nicky Gumbel would claim this was a sign of the Holy Spirit coming upon his congregation.

However, any look at the Bible would see that those who were filled with the Holy Spirit acted in a manner so far removed from laughing like a hyena and roaring like a lion that to even make the comparison is rendered blatantly ludicrous.

Acts 13:6-12: “And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Bar-jesus: Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.”

Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, reproved the worker of iniquity and his expounding of doctrine led to the conversion of Sergius Paulus. No mention of him rolling on the floor like an eejit.

Acts 11:24: “For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.”

This passage speaks of Barnabas, who was “full of the Holy Ghost”. Nowhere is he recorded as being in some sort of trance like state. His infilling of the Holy Ghost was demonstrated through his faith.

Exodus 31:1-3: “And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship”.

How was the infilling of the Holy Spirit of Bezaleel, who played a key role in the construction of the tabernacle, manifested? Through his wisdom, understanding, knowledge and workmanship. None of these are consistent with laughing uncontrollably while rolling around the floor and roaring like a lion.

And given the unholy nature of this charismatic campaign waged by Nicky Gumbel and the practices and he behaviours he espouses, it should make us very wary indeed of the Alpha Course.

Sadly, it has gained much ground and has elevated Nicky Gumbel to essentially the position of the Pope of what is known as the emerging church, the non-denominational, charismatic, easy-believist fellowship type churches which have sprung up in the past 25 years, with the Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area and Causeway Coast Vineyard Church two of the most prominent examples in our land.

Each year, Alpha hosts a leadership conference and the most recent one, which took place last May but whose speakers we have only recently became aware of, included a lengthy, fawning interview with a Roman Catholic cardinal.

Cardinal Luis Tagle is the most senior Roman Catholic churchman in the Philippines, a devoutly Roman Catholic country.

And a major theme of the saccharine interview was a Papal Mass, at which 6 million poor deluded people were in attendance, which Cardinal Luis Tagle organised.

He received a warm round of applause from the congregation in attendance for enabling so many people to be misled by “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

This is how Nicky Gumbel introduced that practitioner of Papist priestcraft to the audience: “Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle is Archbishop of Manila in the Philippines, where there are 82 million Catholics. He serves as president of Caritas International, the Catholic relief organisation, which is the largest charity in the world. He is president of the Catholic Biblical Federation, which operates in 126 countries around the world. In January 2015, he hosted Pope Francis’ visit to the Philippines which included the fourth largest ever gathering of people in history, when 6 million people gathered in a Papal Mass. We are very honoured to have him here, would you give a warm welcome to Cardinal Tagle.”

Cue much whooping and cheering and clapping from the audience.

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

It is an appalling situation.

The love-in of an interview saw the perma-smirking Nicky Gumbel gush over the wonderful skills of this incredibly senior emissary of Papal deceit.

And such sycophancy towards a representative of the evil Romanist system has the very clear and obvious effect of making the dupes in attendance believe that Rome is not so bad and the Pope is someone to at least be faintly admired, rather than treated with revulsion.

Nicky Gumbel then asked Cardinal Luis Tagle about the spiritual disciplines he follows, and Cardinal Luis Tagle revealed he is a follower of the ‘Examen’, the meditative prayer ritual created by the Jesuit founder and leader of the Counter Reformation, Ignatius of Loyola.

Interestingly, it is also the same ritualistic spiritual practice which was disgracefully espoused by Emmanuel Church leader Alain Emerson at a service he led there back in November.

Discussing the spiritual disciplines he follows, Cardinal Luis Tagle says: “I have learned from my seminary mentors, who are Jesuit priests, to do the examination of consciousness.”

That sounds very much like meditation, doesn’t it? Also, Cardinal Luis Tagle is very open about his influences from the Jesuits, the order which led the Counter Reformation in which untold numbers of Protestants were murdered for defending the doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.

Nicky Gumbel, as the minister of Holy Trinity Brompton, an Anglican Church, would know this, but he has clearly decided to ignore it and reject that knowledge which would make any minister worth their salt put clear water between them and Rome.

And it makes his response all the more appalling and reprehensible.

He says: “Explain that for us who haven’t had the benefit.”

Nicky Gumbel chooses to encourage an emissary of Papal deceit to spread false practices, holding him up as someone to follow.

This is the action of the man behind the Alpha Course and we would encourage anyone who attends a church which runs the Alpha Course or advocates it to challenge them on why they are running it.

We would certainly implore you not to submit yourself to this course or any who promote it.

Let us be separate from all such error and manifestations of compromise with the lies of Rome.

2 Corinthians 6:17: ‘Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

Baptist and Congregational churches yoked with creation deniers and Jesuit cheerleaders in ‘Evangelical Alliance’

2 Corinthians 6:14-17: “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”.

A vitally important Biblical principle is that of separation.

However, that principle has been increasingly abandoned throughout professing Christendom and is indeed the subject of mockery from many who would claim to be Christians.

On ‘Protestant Revival’, we repeatedly and unashamedly highlight the absolute necessity for separation from Rome and its manifold blasphemies.

However, it is not just enough to be separate from Rome, we must also be separated from all those who help to propagate error and would deny the Word of God.

We can, as individuals, and as churches, be tied up with that which is dishonouring to God by alliances made within and among churches.

Organisations such as the Irish Council of Churches, which has the Presbyterian Church, Church of Ireland, Methodist Church and Salvation Army, among others, as its members, are such examples.

The Irish Council of Churches is an overtly ecumenical organisation and prides itself on being so.

While such brazen ecumenism is repugnant to the Word of God, it is easily discernible and as such we can be clearly warned of engaging with such organisations.

However, there are other organisations whose ecumenical nature and agenda are much less clear and whose membership comes largely from individual congregations, making it difficult to establish its bona fides.

One of these is the Evangelical Alliance, headed up in Northern Ireland by a man who has come to be known as ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas (pictured, above), a leading figure in the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church.

‘Papist’ Peter is a habitual ecumenist, having praised so-called Protestants for meeting the Pope, eulogised the ecumenical evangelist Billy Graham and endorsed the ecumenical prayer initiative ‘Healing The Land’.

And the former lead pastor of his church, Alan Scott, notoriously said he was “all in” with the Pope.

So this is the man at the head of this supposedly God-honouring organisation.

Any church which is a member of the Evangelical Alliance has made themselves subject to ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas.

Sadly, there is a significant number of churches affiliated formally with the Evangelical Alliance.

There are a number of what might be considered the usual suspects, such as King’s Church in Bangor, County Down, whose pastor Glen Mitchell (pictured, above) has rejected the Biblical account of creation and bemoaned a decision by his local council to block the lighting of a town hall up in support of sodomite ‘Pride’. Sadly, that decision has since been overturned, although Glen Mitchell is yet to comment publicly on the matter, perhaps for fear of it being highlighted on this page once again.

Another member of the Evangelical Alliance which will not surprise any regular readers is Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area of County Armagh.

So numerous are its flaws and so blasphemous are the actions of its leaders, we won’t go into them all in this article, but the most recent disgraceful developments there include Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson glorifying Jesuit founder and Counter Reformation leader Ignatius of Loyola and another lead pastor, Dave Wylie, describing a Roman Catholic monk as a “hero of church history”.

The fact these two churches, and, needless to say, Causeway Coast Vineyard Church, are members is enough to set alarm bells ringing.

You might say to this so far, ‘well, so what? This is a case of birds of a feather flocking together’.

Indeed, there is some justification in adopting that attitude.

However, there are other churches tied up in this God-defying organisation who casual observers might mistakenly think are ok, not knowing the links they have forged with eager promoters of error such as ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas and Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

This includes several Baptist congregations and even one Congregational church in Northern Ireland.

And the Baptist churches we can confirm are members of the ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas headed Evangelical Alliance, according to the Evangelical Alliance’s own website, are Newry Baptist Church, Portstewart Baptist Church, Strandtown Baptist Church, Finaghy Baptist Church and Newtownbreda Baptist Church, the latter three in the Belfast area.

Newtownbreda Baptist Church is interesting as their pastor, Trevor Ramsey (pictured, top), leaped to the defence of ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas on our facebook page when we dared to criticise his ungodly supporting of Maghaberry Elim deacon and Ulster Unionist MLA ‘Roman’ Robbie Butler scuttling down to Dublin to do obeisance to “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

Strandtown Baptist Church as well has a lengthy association with the Evangelical Alliance, who in turn appear to have a lengthy association with consorting with Rome.

In a report from the ‘Burning Bush’ website from 2002, it is recorded that a Romanist priest was an invited guest at the installation of a Gordon McDade as the new pastor of Ballynahinch Baptist Church.

Gordon McDade had previously held the role of Associate Pastor of Strandtown Baptist Church and the meeting was closed in prayer by a Stephen Adams, the former Chairman of the Evangelical Alliance.

Perhaps most interesting of all is Portstewart Baptist Church.

This is a church inextricably linked with ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas as he grew up in it and his father, Norman Lynas, founder of the Lynas food company, remains a key figure within it.

While sadly the previous pastor in Portstewart Baptist Church, John Lewis, passed away fairly recently, the fact remains this is a church heavily involved in ecumenism and associating with ecumenists.

Indeed, in the Portstewart Roman Catholic church magazine, called ‘Stella Maris’, a title often used in devotion to Mary, a 2016 edition features a photograph under the headline ‘Interchurch celebration’, of Pastor John Lewis along with the Church of Ireland minister in the town, Rev Stephen Fielding and Portstewart Presbyterian Church minister, Rev Billy Wilson.

Cosy ecumenical relationships all round then, but our focus is on Portstewart Baptist Church and the Evangelical Alliance at present.

A scan of their Facebook page of late will give you a good idea of the nature of Portstewart Baptist Church as well.

Speakers who came along within the last three or four months include the aforementioned advocate of ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, Pastor Trevor Ramsey of Newtownbreda Baptist Church, along with another member of that church, its Community Pastor, Tim Robinson.

Gavin and Anne Calver of the Evangelical Alliance have also taken the stage there. That husband and wife pairing will also be performing, sorry, speaking at the ungodly, shameful ‘New Wine’ Conference in Sligo later this year. You can read about that festival of ecumenical compromise by clicking here.

And the main organiser of the ‘New Wine’ Conference, Rev David McClay (pictured, below) of Willowfield Parish Church in east Belfast, was another guest speaker in Portstewart Baptist Church in the past few months too.

All were, naturally, according to Portstewart Baptist Church’s facebook page, simply wonderful.

The Congregational Church which has formally aligned itself with ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas and his mean ecumenical compromise is Cregagh Congregational, in the east of Belfast.

Both the Baptist and Congregational churches would be considered by many to generally be fairly sound, but this demonstrates clearly that such assumptions are far from safe.

Why are these organisations formally joined with that which is acting contrary to the cause of Christ?

What is their justification for such God-dishonouring conduct?

Pastor Trevor Ramsey of Newtownbreda Baptist Church has already demonstrated his determination to abandon the Word of God when he backed ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas when he supported so-called Protestants running to Dublin to cower before “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the Pope.

What do members and attendees of Newtownbreda Baptist Church make of such God defiance on behalf of their pastor? Does it sit well with them?

As for the other Baptist churches, in Finaghy, Strandtown, Newry and Portstewart, what do members and attendees there think of their formal alignment with that which is happy to work alongside Popery?

We would strongly encourage, indeed implore, readers to share this article widely so such rejection of a Biblical viewpoint can be challenged and force church leaders to address well founded concerns over their links with an organisation whose leader is habitually engaging in ecumenical conduct and consorting with others who do the same.

In this day of deepening apostasy, we must follow the words of the Apostle Paul and “be not moved away from the hope of the gospel”.

Colossians 1:21-23 says: “And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel”.

Ecumenists, hiding under the banner of evangelicals, are moving people away from the hope of the gospel to an ungodly concoction of emotionialism, rock and roll music and wafer thin theology which seeks to please people rather than God.

Don’t allow yourself to be swept away by it and don’t allow churches in your area to get away with it unchallenged.

The people of God ought to be ever ready to follow the words of God spoken through Isaiah: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” (Isaiah 58:1).

Let us not be silent when we see and hear the march of the armies of the ecumenical evangelicals, but rather let us cry aloud and challenge them for their ungodly deeds.

Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

Emmanuel leader Dave Wylie calls Papist monk a ‘hero of church history’

The Romanist connections of Emmanuel Church, based in the Craigavon area, continue to be strengthened and expanded upon by its lead pastors.

This is so much and so clearly the case that justifiably its best known figure has earned the moniker Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

In addition to speaking at, leading and organising a host of events in full agreement with Rome, last month we revealed the truly disgraceful, heretical message he preached in the Emmanuel Church in which he glorified Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Romanist Jesuit order and leader of the Counter Reformation.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, below) then led the poor people in the congregation in getting them to engage in the ‘Spiritual Exercises’ of that evil man.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is ably assisted in his ecumenical compromise by fellow lead pastors, Philip Emerson and Dave Wylie.

Both of those men took part in the ecumenical, charismatic ‘New Wine’ Conference in the summertime, at which three Romanist speakers were invited. Next year’s conference has already agreed to bring back one of those Papist deceivers, which you can read about by clicking here.

And we have now discovered that, in the same series of meetings held by Emmanuel Church, entitled ‘The Practice’, Dave Wylie has led the congregation into practicing what is today considered a Benedictine ritual meditation called Lectio Divina.

The Benedictines are an order of Roman Catholic monks.

This is another instance of Romish practices being taught and encouraged in what is allegedly a God-exalting church.

Speaking in the service from 7th October, which you can access by going to the Emmanuel Church Lurgan website, Dave Wylie introduces the Lectio Divina process thus: “There were four steps given by this monk called Guigo Carthusi I think is his name in 1173 and there’s been other heroes of church history that have used this”.

He is referring to a man known as Guigo II, a Carthusian Roman Catholic monk, who was a Prior of the Carthusian Order.

So Dave Wylie is holding on a pedestal an emissary of Papal deceit, describing him as a “hero of church history”.

It certainly is a bizarre thing for someone in his position to consider a leading figure in the Roman Catholic Church to be a hero of church history.

Which church is he referring to? Does Dave Wylie consider himself to be of the religious lineage of a Roman Catholic monk?

It certainly is interesting that Emmanuel Church leaders appear to be engaged in a repeated campaign to eulogise and promote architects of Romish practices and deceitful spiritual exercises.

Indeed, they are promoting that which is and those who are absolutely opposite to Biblical Christianity.

Lectio Divina, the practice espoused by Dave Wylie and which he claims has changed his life in his message brought to the Emmanuel Church, is a contemplative meditative method of reading the Bible.

It is essentially another form of mysticism, and that word is something which cropped up in Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson’s extolling of the leader of Protestant persecution, Ignatius of Loyola.

This is what Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson had to say: “He had some profound mystical experiences, and it was in those mystical experiences that he wrote what’s called his ‘Spiritual Practices’.”

All this is leading the church’s adherents into mystical experiences, an emptying of the mind, akin to the Popish practice of Taizé, which Alain Emerson led the practicing of in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Belfast back in February of this year. The picture below shows him leading the service in that hub of Romanism.

And Lectio Divina is a process heartily recommended by the previous Pope, Benedict XVI, who said: “I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of lectio divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about that intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking, and in praying, responds to him with trusting openness of heart.”

What Lectio Divina teaches is of some new revelation from God to the reader, despite the fact we have a full revelation in the Bible, which God’s Word itself attests.

Revelation 22:18-19 says: “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”

We are not to add to or take from the Word of God, but this is what Lectio Divina does, often encouraging the reader to boil down the passage they are reading to one or two words or a single phrase, repeating it over and over to help enter a trance like state.

As well as there being no new revelation from God, we need no new revelation from God as His Word is perfect.

Look at Psalm 19:7-14: “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord , my strength, and my redeemer.”

David yearned for the meditation of his heart to be acceptable to God, but the meditative practices espoused by Romish monks, Pope Benedict XVI and Dave Wylie are most certainly not acceptable unto God.

There appears to be consistently polluted worship being offered up in Emmanuel Church and we would implore all readers to warn their friends, family and neighbours to stay clear of this and other churches where such blasphemy is taught.

Such polluted worship is condemned in very strong terms by God, and a great example of this is in the prophecy of Amos, when he, under God’s instruction, said in Amos 5:21-23: “I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.”

Such churches are notable for the emphasis on ‘praise’ music, where as loud a racket as possible is made in the name of worship of God, but is in fact more akin to a rock concert.

Dear reader, please turn away from churches which are teaching such mysticism and Romanism, and instead focus on what the Bible actually has to say, and not what some would-be theologians prattle on about, leading many poor souls astray.

1 Timothy 4:1: “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”.
