Presbyterian Church quitters like Lord Alderdice no loss to anyone

There has been much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth by hardened ecumenists and outright apostates over a few rather soft measures by the Presbyterian Church to limit the involvement of sodomites in the church, withdraw from the World Council of Churches and lessen ties with the Church of Scotland.

In truth, the Presbyterian Church has ambled about a yard down the road away from the depths it has reached when it needs to run a marathon.

But any move away from downright apostasy will always be greeted with howls of outrage from the world, especially when it involves the great cause of our day – sodomy.

This is a vile sin and unnatural, that’s what the Holy Spirit calls it in Romans 1:26. He calls it an “abomination” in Leviticus 18:22.

If you don’t like this, don’t take it up with Rev Stafford Carson, the Principal of Union Theological College, the training ground for Presbyterian ministers, and the man behind much of the doctrinal work which has provoked such apostate outrage – take it up with God.

And if you think shaking your puny fist at the Almighty will avail of anything for you, remember what we are told in Psalm 2:4: “He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”

As we have said previously, we ought not to despise the day of small things, but that is all the Presbyterian Church has done – small things.

They will still work alongside the apostate Church of Scotland, which has given its blessing to same-sex marriage, in areas of “mutual benefit”, whatever they are.

They are still in various ecumenical bodies, such as the Irish Council of Churches and dozens of local groupings.

They will still welcome sodomites into the church, despite this being a position whereby they are endorsing open sin in the pews.

They will retain women ministers and continue to teach them at their training college, where the supposedly hardline Rev Stafford Carson is the Principal. In fact he said this week the following: “At the present time the Presbyterian Church in Ireland ordains women to the eldership and to the ministry and that is a settled conviction of the church.”

They will still tolerate various corrupt translations of the Word of God.

They will still enthusiastically engage with what their own governing principles (supposedly), the Westminster Confession of Faith, calls “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

They will still allow despicable old apostates like Martin McGuinness’ mate Rev David Latimer, the Mary worship endorsing Rev John Stanbridge and Roman Catholic publishing house backed Rev Andrew Watson to hold their positions.

They are just three of the apostates we have written about in the Presbyterian Church on ‘Protestant Revival’ thus far.

We are sure there are more issues we could identify, but we trust we are highlighting the depths of the issues at large within the Presbyterian Church.

Despite the nonsensical protestations of Lord Alderdice (pictured, below), who has resigned as a Presbyterian elder and member over the matter, there remains a great gulf between the stance of the Presbyterian Church and the Free Presbyterian Church, which he sought to claim.

He, and others, including the previously obscure but suddenly “high profile businesswoman” (according to the Belfast Telegraph) Lesley Macaulay claim this is a matter of liberty, which is an absolute falsehood.

We will remind Lord Alderdice, a former Alliance Party leader (and what a wretched, God defying party it is), of what the Westminster Confession of Faith says.

Let’s not forget he would have vowed his agreement with what it said and promised to uphold it when he was appointed as an elder. This was clearly a lie, as we will demonstrate clearly now.

These words would also be helpful to Lesley Macaulay, whose daughter is a lesbian, who follows the time-honoured tradition of something being a sin until one of your family members does it.

Chapter 24, paragraph 1 says: “Marriage is to be between one man and one woman.”

Chapter 20, paragraph 3 says: “They who, upon pretence of Christian liberty, do practice any sin, or cherish any lust, do thereby destroy the end of Christian liberty…”

As a Presbyterian elder, Lord Alderdice would have been required to affirm his belief in the Westminster Confession of Faith in its entirety.

Either his view has changed during the years or he was dishonest from the start in order to gain higher position.

Whatever the case may be, he is an utterly inappropriate candidate for the eldership and his church can only benefit from his absence.

We are reminded in John 14:15 that if we love Christ, we will want to do what is pleasing to Him, not ourselves. It says: “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

This same idea is referred to in Acts 5:29, where it says: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

God’s Word forbids gay marriage, but the likes of Lord Alderdice and Lesley Macaulay are fine with it. Who ought we to follow? We trust that is self-evident.

The only way to revival and seeing souls saved and our country transformed (and these are issues which appear to not even feature on the priority lists of the likes of Lord Alderdice and the non-entity of Lesley Macaulay) is through total faithfulness to God’s Word and a confession of sins, not wilful indulgence in still graver sin.

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.”

Please pray, dear reader, for a mighty revival in our land, that souls may be saved in their droves and that our churches will eject the deceivers and the apostates and the ecumenists corrupting religious worship up and down this land.

Senior Anglican figures seek to open floodgates of sin on their church

Two dangerous apostates in high ecclesiastic office are among the figures calling for the Church of England to lose its legal protection against being forced to employ all manner of utterly unsuitable characters within the church.

The Bishop of Liverpool, Right Reverend (more like Wrong Reverend!) Paul Bayes and the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral, the Very Reverend (more like Very Apostate) David Ison want the Church of England to be forced to employ people regardless of whether they claim to hold a Christian belief and regardless of their sexuality, marital history or “gender identity”.

Mind you, this pair are utterly unsuitable characters themselves as both men are noted apostates and their views on homosexuality are repugnant to the Word of God.

The comments of Wrong Reverend Paul Bayes (pictured, below) in support of his depraved stance are so at odds with God’s Word it is frightening.

He said: “If we mean what we say about opposing homophobia, if we believe what we say about wanting to include everyone, if we believe that God made every one [the way] they are, then what does that imply for our public policies?

“We will advocate for a greater openness and the implication of that is we may have to re-examine the prohibitions that are there in law at the moment.

“I do think we should continue to advocate for greater freedom and in the end who knows what that will mean? It may mean that one day it will be possible for people in a same-sex relationship to have that relationship affirmed in a way that is now illegal and in that case we would have to change the law.”

Very Apostate David Ison (pictured, below) added to the despicable abandonment of Biblical principles. He said: “We have got to come to terms with the reality of the world we’re in and we’re not doing that. That is why we’re becoming disconnected from society.

“My view is that if there is a price to be paid for what you believe in conscience then you should pay that; you should not make other people pay the price for your conscience. That applies to abortion, to issues of sexuality and gender and right across the piste. If it is legal, decent and honest but you don’t believe it is right, then you have to deal with it.”

Where do you start with those comments? Only men who have no knowledge of Christ could speak in such a way.

The first thing we will emphasise, very simply, is what the Bible has to say about the sins they are endorsing, chiefly homosexuality and the madness of the self-deception many people claim to have regarding their gender.

With regards homosexuality, the Bible clearly states it is completely contrary to the laws of decency and the natural order ordained by God.

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

Romans 1:22-27: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

That is absolutely crystal clear, one would have thought. However, not so for Wrong Reverend Paul Bayes and Very Apostate David Ison, as well as plenty more members of the clergy who would claim to be Christians.

This madness surrounding gender which is engulfing our land is clearly a perversion of God’s Word.

Genesis 5:2: “Male and female created he them…”

There is no in between zone, no gender transition or any of these other trendy terms circulating now. This notion is anti-Christian.

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.”

When Wrong Reverend Paul Bayes refers to the Church of England wanting to “include everyone” and God making everyone as they are, he is on an evil path of apostasy.

The offer of the gospel is open to everyone. We are told in 2 Peter 3:9: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

We are also told in John 3:16 that “whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

However, this does not mean that churches should include everyone, regardless of the type of lifestyle they live. When you become a Christian you turn away from previous sins.

2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Even those who have been guilty of the foulest of sins can obtain forgiveness.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

God doesn’t do business on our terms, we must accept that God is perfect, sinless and hates sin and we must repent of our sin if we are to obtain forgiveness. If we come to Christ as we are, he will forgive us, but if we claim to be a Christian yet remain as we are then that means no true work of salvation has been wrought in our lives. Convincing people to the contrary is the sort of sordid deceit people like Wrong Reverend Paul Bayes and Very Apostate David Ison are propagating.

As for Very Apostate David Ison’s comments, he says that you have to come to terms with the world. However, we are told in Romans 12:2: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

He then says “you should not make other people pay the price for your conscience”. Yet another anti-Biblical comment!

We are called upon to “earnestly contend for the faith” (Jude v 3) and to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them” (Ephesians 5:11).

David Ison has no faith to contend for and he is carrying out the unfruitful works of darkness by endorsing such a diabolical betrayal of his Protestant heritage.

He concludes by saying: “If it is legal, decent and honest but you don’t believe it is right, then you have to deal with it.”

Homosexuality may be legal in the law of the land, but, as we have already stressed, it is a most sinister contravention of God’s law, and it is the furthest thing from decent or honest.

Very Apostate David Ison is on the broad road which leads to destruction.

Further emphasising the despicable perversion of the office of Bishop he is perpetrating, Wrong Reverend Paul Bayes is actually a patron of ‘Gay Pride’ in Liverpool.

This man holds the role of Bishop of Liverpool once held by JC Ryle, one of the godliest men England has ever seen, and it is indicative of how far spiritually the UK has descended that such a character as Wrong Reverend Paul Bayes occupies that position today.

Speaking after the announcement of his patronage of that festival of filth, he said: “I am privileged to identify with our Pride’s contribution to tackling prejudice and promoting awareness of the richness of our LGBTI+ community.

“I myself have been advocating in the church for LGBTI+ inclusion. At the recent meeting of the General Synod the Church of England made some clear and positive statements exploring services of welcome for trans people who want their true identity recognised before God.”

God does indeed recognise their true identity – as sinners who need to come to Him for forgiveness. God makes no mistakes, He didn’t accidentally create someone who is really a man as a woman or vice versa and to suggest anything else is a grievous slur on our God.

In order to counter them, we have had to repeat the vain babblings and blasphemies of unsaved clerics such as Wrong Reverend Paul Bayes and Very Apostate David Ison, who have created a false god to fit around their sinful notions, but we will finish with a quote from a true man of God, the aforementioned JC Ryle, and this also has a clear application for those ecumenical traitors sprinkled throughout churches up and down our United Kingdom.

“Beware of manufacturing a God of your own: a God who is all mercy, but not just; a God who is all love, but not Holy, a God who has a heaven for everybody, but a hell for none; a God who can allow good and bad to be side by side in time, but will make no distinction between good and broad in eternity. Such a God is an idol of your own, as truly an idol as any snake or crocodile in an Egyptian temple. The hands of your own fancy and sentimentality have made him. He is not the God of the Bible, and beside the God of the Bible there is no God at all.”

The Bible alone – the only ‘gay conversion therapy’ required

The politically correct brigade have been getting awfully worked up over an event held in a Belfast Church of Ireland fellowship dealing with so-called ‘gay Christians’.

Of course, LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) rights are all the rage at the moment, so any voice of dissent from the accepted wisdom, no matter how low or squeaky, will be howled down instantly by a chorus of intolerant ‘liberals’.

Willowfield Parish Church ran an event yesterday called ‘Is Your Church Biblically Inclusive?’ It is part of what is called the Living Out Course and is “designed for those who are, or want to be, a committed Christian but identify as homosexual”. It is operated with the support of the Evangelical Alliance, which took a rather foolish viewpoint on Billy Graham two weeks ago.

The church’s minister, Rev David McClay (pictured), said this was not tantamount to a ‘gay cure therapy’ session, and claimed that his congregation contains homosexuals every week.

It is good that Rev McClay is at least acknowledging that the homosexual lifestyle is far from desirable and is incompatible with God’s Word.

However, it is most odd that any professing Christian should consider it appropriate for other Christians to identify themselves as a ‘gay Christian’. And it is stranger still that anyone should consider themselves a ‘gay Christian’.

When a person is saved, they publicly reject and repudiate sin in all its forms and strive each day to become more Christ like. They don’t continue to identify themselves with a vile sin such as homosexuality. Would anyone identify themselves as an ‘adulterer Christian’ or a ‘thieving Christian’? We would think not.

The most important comments to be made on the matter are, as always, to be found in the Bible.

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

Romans 1:22-27: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

Genesis 2:24 “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

These verses clearly establish the natural order set by God and leaves no room for same-sex relationships, never mind same-sex marriage.

Why would a professing Christian want to associate themselves with something so profoundly contrary to God’s will? God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of the sin of homosexuality and God is “the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Hebrews 13:8), so why should anyone think God actually doesn’t mind it now?

There is a cure for homosexual urges, just like there is a cure for any other sinful desire, and that is the Word of God, where God’s great Salvation is revealed to us.

In the Corinthian church, we are told that some of the Christians there had previously practiced homosexuality, but had been gloriously converted.

It says in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”

Some of the Corinthians had been “effeminate” and “abusers of themselves with mankind” but they had been wonderfully saved through the atoning work of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shed His blood on Calvary to wash away our sins.

This clearly states such as those listed, including the homosexuals, shall not inherit the Kingdom of God. Why, again, would professing Christians then want to associate themselves with this practice?

We are told in the Bible of God’s transformative power, how when we are saved then we become a new person. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

If this should happen to be read by any who are experiencing issues over sexuality and Christianity and are afraid to get saved as they are unsure whether they can remain faithful to God, the Bible reminds us it is He who, once He transforms us, then preserves us. It is our natural disposition to sin in so many different ways since the Fall of Man in the Garden of Eden, but, if we are saved, God will strengthen us.

1 Peter 1:3-5 says: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

Perhaps Rev McClay and the Evangelical Alliance would do well to stress these things with any homosexuals professing to be Christians they encounter from here on.
