Blasphemous bishop teaches salvation by baptism in Londonderry Church of Ireland

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Church of Ireland bishop’s love letter to Romanist excusing republican thugs in Londonderry

Psalm 1:1: “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

The Church of Ireland Bishop of Derry and Raphoe has expressed his great admiration for the Roman Catholic Bishop of Derry at a major Church of Ireland youth event.

As part of their attempts to normalise compromise with the papacy with the youth of the Church of Ireland, Bishop Ken Good (Church of Ireland) and Bishop Donal McKeown (Roman Catholic Church) “talked and joked before an audience of Christians about their friendship and ministry”, according to a report on the Church of Ireland Diocese of Derry and Raphoe website.

The report stated that the “close rapport” between the pair “was on display at the Summer Madness festival”, a major gathering for the youth of the Church of Ireland.

Speaking at a seminar entitled ‘Our Journey Together’, Bishop Ken Good, (pictured, right of the image, below) was gushing in his praise for Bishop Donal McKeown (pictured, left of the image).

He said: “I think he has a remarkable way with people. His memory of names, his ability to just relate to people – and I saw this in Rome particularly – he’s a real people person and there’s a warmth about him, there’s a ‘down-to-earthness’ about him.

“I actually think he’s a very good bishop – I’m quite serious about that, it’s true – and he has that warm ability to get on and relate to his people.”

Bishop Donal McKeown continued the adulatory ecumenical exchange.

He said: “We do complement one another as well. I can bring a certain amount of energy but you can bring the focus to it, the structure to it, so together we’re blessed having each other by being different, because we recognise the skills that the other has – which is a wonderful way to have a relationship.

“We’ve been blessed in having each other to complement one another.”

It also appears to be the case that they have each other to compliment one another.

And Bishop Donal McKeown, in recent days, has excused the vicious sectarian actions of republicans in Northern Ireland’s second city, Londonderry, targeting relentlessly for a week a small Protestant area surrounded by republican strongholds.

Referring to the thugs, he said: “Some communities that suffered much in the past are still suffering disadvantage.

“There are young people who feel life is passing them by and looking down on them.”

Therefore, presumably the natural reaction in that circumstance is to, with violent intent, target Protestants simply because they are Protestant. What utter nonsense!

However, this is the type of character that the supposedly Protestant Bishop Ken Good has opted to cosy up with.

Back to their little get together and the Papist bishop then also pointed out that many of their ecumenical ventures were thanks to the determined efforts of the so-called Protestant bishop.

Referring to a number of “Columban pilgrimages” the pair had engaged in together, he said: “I may have my strengths but Ken, all those walks came from you calling meetings in your office; you were the organiser.”

So Bishop Ken Good was the driving force behind the Columban pilgrimages, a Papist practice.

He certainly has not followed the example set by David, as he stressed in Psalm 26.

Verses 4-5 say: “I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers. I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.”

The Roman Catholic system is a wicked one, as it expressly tries to robs its adherents of salvation by denying the precious truth of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

Instead it preaches a corrupt system of works, which can never offer salvation.

It does not go well when we make alliances with those who are at odds with God.

One must only look at the sorry example of King Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah who aligned himself with the notoriously wicked king of Israel, Ahab.

The husband of the evil Jezebel, Ahab was that man whom Elijah had boldly told was the one who had troubled Israel with his blasphemous idolatry (1 Kings 18:18).

He had not changed by the time he made an alliance with Jehoshaphat, who, to that point, had pleased God.

However, he very nearly paid for his folly with his life.

First, Ahab made friendly overtures towards him, seeking to win his confidence, which he did.

2 Chronicles 18:2-3: “And after certain years he went down to Ahab to Samaria. And Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance, and for the people that he had with him, and persuaded him to go up with him to Ramoth-gilead. And Ahab king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Wilt thou go with me to Ramoth-gilead? And he answered him, I am as thou art , and my people as thy people; and we will be with thee in the war.”

Is that not even the spirit of the ecumenical movement? Do its cheerleaders not say that we’re all really the same, we are all Christians and all serve the same God?

This is a lie and a deceit from the pit, just as it was in the day of Jehoshaphat.

Ahab presided over an evil kingdom and enforced blasphemous worship of Baal in the land, yet Jehoshaphat foolishly sought to team up with this reprobate.

Jehoshaphat equivocated for a time, but eventually gave in to this ecumenical alliance with the idolater, Ahab, and went into battle with him.

However, Ahab sought to protect himself and expose Jehoshaphat to the most danger in their battle with the Assyrians.

2 Chronicles 18:29,31: “And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and will go to the battle; but put thou on thy robes. So the king of Israel disguised himself; and they went to the battle. And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, It is the king of Israel. Therefore they compassed about him to fight: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the Lord helped him; and God moved them to depart from him.”

Were it not for God’s mercy, Jehoshaphat would have been killed by those assuming he was in fact Ahab.

This is typical of the ecumenical process, whereby it is the Protestant who must compromise themselves to align with the Roman Catholic. It was the same for Jehoshaphat, whose kingdom was much closer to God, as he put himself literally in the firing line to aid the God rejecter, Ahab.

However, God made the plans of men to come to nothing when he caused Ahab to die in the battle, regardless of his efforts to disguise himself.

2 Chronicles 18:33-34: “And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: therefore he said to his chariot man, Turn thine hand, that thou mayest carry me out of the host; for I am wounded. And the battle increased that day: howbeit the king of Israel stayed himself up in his chariot against the Syrians until the even: and about the time of the sun going down he died.”

While God intervened on behalf of Jehoshaphat and spared him, He was displeased by his actions, as he told Jehoshaphat through Jehu the prophet in the next chapter.

2 Chronicles 19:2: “And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the Lord? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the Lord.”

Jehoshaphat lost out through an unholy alliance with someone who was at variance with God.

We ought to take heed to such a warning, rather than supporting the ecumenical efforts of the likes of Bishop Ken Good.

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”.
