Church of Ireland clerics Canon David Skuce and Rev Sampson Ajuka mark Easter by running to Rome

Fermanagh appears to be an active hub of ecumenical compromise and treachery, and Easter appears to be a popular time to indulge this sinful lust, and the West Erne Churches Forum will celebrate Christ’s glorious victory at the cross by blasphemously running into the arms of the Roman Catholic Church, which denies the power of His precious, atoning blood.

The West Erne Churches Forum previously attracted our attention when it hosted an ecumenical meeting in a Roman Catholic Church, and it will do the same again tomorrow (Good Friday) in a nearby chapel, Sacred Heart in the village of Boho.

This ecumenical meeting will begin in the Roman Catholic chapel before attendees walk to Boho Parish Church for a service. At its conclusion, everyone will make their way back to the chapel for “a second service of reflection” (more like genuflection!). Refreshments will be served afterwards (how lovely – Proverbs 23:6-8).

As was the case with the meeting we highlighted during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the three members of the clergy involved in this disgraceful activity are so-called Protestants Canon David Skuce (pictured, top) of Inishmacsaint Parish Church, Rev Sampson Ajuka (pictured, below) of Devenish and Boho Parish churches and Roman Catholic priest, ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips.

We are not especially concerned with ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips as, to use an Ulsterism, ‘what do you expect from a pig, only a grunt’.

However, these Protestant apostates are the subject of our attention and of God’s wrath.

Ecumenism is not a part of God’s gospel, as ecumenism necessitates compromise and we are not to compromise on the gospel of Christ. It is a dilution and degradation of God’s Word.

We are told in the final chapter of the Bible, Revelation chapter 22, that God has pronounced His curse to anyone who adds anything or takes anything away from His Word.

Verses 18-19 say: “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.”

These Protestant apostate ecumenicals are trying to take away the power of God’s salvation by their chumming up with emissaries of Papal deceit like ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips.

The meeting itself is a rather apt picture of what is happening in Ulster and has already happened in large parts of Europe.

It will start in Rome’s den of deception before moving to the Protestant church, reminiscent of when the gospel light was switched on and people deserted Romanism in their droves, but, when mainstream Protestant churches had diluted their message, it returned back to the pit from which it had come, the Church of Rome.

One of the chief drivers of ecumenism is ignorance of the Word of God. If ministers such as Canon David Skuce and Rev Sampson Ajuka had a proper appreciation of God’s anger at such blasphemy, they wouldn’t be doing it.

Jeremiah 8:7 says: “Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the Lord.”

Another major reason for this betrayal of Protestantism, which is true Biblical Christianity, is a desire for these clergy to feel good about themselves as they believe it to be a noble thing to mingle the seed with a Papist. How wrong they are!

In Northern Ireland, we are expected to believe we are living through a ‘peace process’, and this in part means pretending many figures within the Roman Catholic Church didn’t play a prominent part in encouraging IRA men in their bloody terrorist campaign. Homilies at the funerals of murderous republicans are indication enough of many priests’ true views of their Protestant neighbours as little more than cannon fodder for their own anti-Christian ends. Of course, the likes of David Skuce is a subtly different type of ‘canon fodder’ for Papists seeking to undo the Reformation and destroy Protestantism.

We must state clearly that we are speaking generally in relation to priests and we have absolutely no idea of ‘Father’ Jimmy McPhillips’ views on such matters. It is certainly also true that a not insignificant number of priests were opposed to such sectarian violence.

What is certain is that Protestants in areas like Boho were ethnically cleansed by the IRA during the so-called ‘Troubles’ in Northern Ireland. Protestants living in border areas in County Fermanagh were particular targets of murderous Romanists and now we have characters like Canon David Skuce leading his parishioners in that very area into the arms of Rome? It is outrageous.

We will return to Jeremiah, a great book with quite stunningly similar parallels to be drawn to our situation today.

It says in Jeremiah 6:13-16: “…and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord . Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”

Canon David Skuce and Rev Sampson Ajuka have rejected God’s call to separate themselves from the workers of iniquity and instead “they be blind leaders of the blind” (Matthew 15:14).

The conclusion of that verse reveals for us the outcome of this ecumenism: “And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

If you are a member of the Church of Ireland or another church practising ecumenism, please challenge your minister on their views and please separate yourself from it that you may not be partaker of their evil deeds.

1 Samuel 2:30: “…for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”
