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?
