Bangor Church of Ireland holds ‘celebration of LGBTQ inclusion’

Much of the world’s news bulletins are currently being dominated with news of the spread of the coronavirus.

More than 60,000 people have been reported as infected with the disease and over 1,500 have lost their lives.

Such is the danger and fear caused by this disease that rigorous quarantine procedures have been put in place in an effort to curb the spread of the disease.

Sadly, no such precautions are being put in place in many areas of the professing church today to prevent the spread of a deadly virus which is infecting the minds and souls of so many.

That is the bizarre and utterly unscriptural concept that the various violations of God’s established order which make up the LGBTQ acronym and movement are somehow pleasing to God or welcomed by Him.

Never worry that the Bible repeatedly condemns these sins, those involved in this campaign to affirm all forms of wickedness are listening to their own notions rather than God’s Word.

Proverbs 14:12 sums it up rather succinctly. It says: “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

We are all sinful and when we rely on our own wisdom we go astray, and there can be no doubt that such notions as those within the LGBTQ movement are of man’s own wisdom.

And such exaltation of man was on show just a few weeks ago as a Church of Ireland congregation in the Bangor area of County Down held what was titled a “celebration of LGBTQ inclusion”.

It took place in St Gall’s Parish Church, Carnalea, on the Crawfordsburn Road in Bangor.

This wicked event, which celebrated rebellion against God while claiming to be of God, took place on 28 January.

It would appear that the main organiser of this particular event was a Mary Gilfillan, who unscripturally holds office within the church (1 Timothy 2:12).

She is a member of the Select Vestry which runs the church, holding the role of People’s Churchwarden.

In an article about the event she has written for the church’s website, she outlines the various nonsense activities going on, including bringing in a storyteller and an artist, while screening a video about a woman who apparently chose her “LGBTQ daughter over the evangelical church”.

At the top of the article, this Mary Gilfillan states that in September 2019 “our Select Vestry decided to take up an invitation to register with Changing Attitude Ireland”.

For those who haven’t heard of Changing Attitude Ireland, it is a pro-LGBTQ organisation within the Church of Ireland.

This event was their celebration of taking up this membership.

Every single member of the Select Vestry of St Gall’s Church of Ireland, Carnalea, ought to be ashamed of themselves.

The membership is made up of minister, Canon Michael Parker (pictured, above), Christopher Houston, the aforementioned Mary Gilfillan, Brian Waters, William Tennis, Desi Sykes, Noel McKeown, Derrick Conn, Pauline Smyth, Lynne Davison, James Hanna, Gary Ballentine, Janis Dunn, Jim Noble, Bertie Thompson and Angie Orr.

These people and their organisation’s attitude may be changing, but God’s Word is not.

Hebrews 13:8 reminds us of this as it says: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

St Gall’s Carnalea certainly is showing some gall to be seeking to overturn God’s Word and is most certainly acting very carnally.

Of course, a pro-sodomy event in a church would not be quite the same were it not attended by Rev Andrew Rawding (pictured, top), who seems desperate to make himself the patron saint of the sodomite movement.

Accompanied by members of the Mid Ulster Pride group, of which he is the vice-chairman, he was in the midst of it and very excited to share photos of this abominable event online, as you can see, below.

While true saints of God will rightly grieve over such an event taking place, let us take comfort from the knowledge that God is not mocked.

And let us also take comfort from the fact that God can and does overturn the wisdom of men.

1 Corinthians 1:19-20 says: “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”

Even though the sodomite movement appears to be in the ascendancy at present and is certainly gaining ground within what passes for professing Christendom in many places today, we know that God remains sovereign over all things.

We also know that God is able to save the souls of any who attended or supported this horrendous event.

Salvation is available to those who identify themselves under the LGBTQ umbrella if they but repent of their sins and turn their back on the wicked lifestyle they have chosen to lead.

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 has saved the “effeminate” and “abusers of themselves with mankind” and He can do it again.

Let us pray that God will move mightily in Ulster once again, put to flight the enemies of the gospel and wondrously save many thousands of people in our land.

Presbyterian ministers to address blasphemous ‘Blessed are the Queer’ conference

Isaiah 5:20: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”

The march to bring greater acceptance of the ungodly LGBT movement within the church continues at pace and the latest high profile event scheduled to continue this anti-Christian process is a conference scheduled for this April entitled ‘Blessed are the Queer’.

Rather fittingly, it will take place on 1st April – April Fool’s Day – for it is only a fool who would try to claim that an appropriate addition to the Beatitudes would be an endorsement of that which God has condemned as an “abomination”.

Regular readers of ‘Protestant Revival’ will be unsurprised to know that a leading figure behind this outrageous event is Rev Andrew Rawding, a hitherto unknown Church of Ireland minister in County Tyrone who has decided to make a name for himself by throwing himself headlong into supporting the sodomite movement.

He is the vice-chair of the recently formed LGBT group Mid Ulster Pride and spent much of last summer marching in so-called Pride parades while carrying a banner pompously ‘apologising’ to the LGBT ‘community’ for how the church has allegedly ‘mistreated’ them.

And at the launch of Mid Ulster Pride last week, Rev Andrew Rawding announced the Blessed are the Queer conference.

Among the speakers are representatives of LGBT groups, unsurprisingly, but there are two very interesting other names on the list of speakers.

They are Presbyterian ministers Rev Laurence Kirkpatrick (until recently) and ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban (pictured, below).

Rev Laurence Kirkpatrick (pictured, top) was a professor at Union Theological College, the training ground of the Presbyterian Church, who was removed from his position by the church when he spoke out against moves made by the church to bar communicant membership to those involved in same-sex relationships and forbid the baptism of children in the care of same-sex partners.

Of course, these are proper decisions which ought not to have been opposed by any true child of God, indeed, the Presbyterian Church is still falling well short of the standards it ought to be setting.

But it was all too much for Rev Laurence Kirkpatrick, who went on BBC Radio Ulster’s Talkback programme to say that he would be horrified if a student at the college was taught that a same-sex, sexually active relationship was sinful.

Imagine that, a professor charged with helping to train up the ministers who will be the future of the denomination says he would be horrified if students were told that something God says is sinful was sinful.

It is hard to think of a more fitting application of Matthew 15:14 than this. That verse says “… they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”

Another ‘minister’ determined to drag as many into the ditch with them as possible is ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban.

Apart from the obvious reason why she is not an appropriate spiritual leader (1 Timothy 2:10-12 gives all the guidance we need), ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban is a devoted ecumenist and appears to demonstrate a less than Biblically faithful view of homosexuality.

She is an advocate of the ecumenical quasi-political, quasi-religious self-important annual talking shop in Belfast known as the Four Corners Festival, and last year she was one of a number of clerics who shamefully preached at the Novena at the Romanist Clonard Monastery in west Belfast. She is pictured, below, speaking at that dreadful event in a hub of Romanist deceit.

And at last year’s Presbyterian General Assembly she joined with the “LGBT Christian” endorsing Rev John Dickinson in reaffirming her opposition to the moves by the Presbyterian Church which had so vexed Rev Laurence Kirkpatrick.

The weakness of the Presbyterian Church was demonstrated as it has raised no opposition to any of her Bible-defying antics.

And, when questioned on ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban’s involvement with the Blessed are the Queer conference, the Presbyterian Church took its typical approach of deflection and using weasel words as they did their best impression of Pontius Pilate in full handwashing mode.

They said: “As a church we continue to affirm that all people are loved, valued and cherished by God. To love someone in Christ does not mean you have to agree with their lifestyle, or point of view.

“For example, PCI’s (Presbyterian Church in Ireland) biblically faithful position that marriage is between one man and one woman, is well known.

“With little knowledge of the event, the format, or topics that the speakers will be addressing, it would be difficult to comment further. Dr Kirkpatrick is no longer a minister in the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and no longer holds a professorial chair at Union Theological College.

“We would assume that Rev Cheryl Meban, who is one of our ministers, will be speaking in a personal capacity.”

What shameful equivocation!

‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban is speaking precisely because of her role as a Presbyterian ‘minister’. Were she an ordinary person on the street she wouldn’t be invited to speak, it is because she is ordained to the role she is that she will be addressing attendees at this appalling event.

Whatever her specific views are, and certainly her very attendance (and past record) at an event with such a clearly partisan title casts a great deal of doubt over how Scriptural her views will be, the Presbyterian Church cannot but be linked to the views of one of its ordained ‘ministers’, particularly on such a fundamental matter of faith.

Is Rev Andrew Rawding, who appears to be trying to position himself as the clerical LGBT champion of Northern Ireland, going to invite someone to his event which seeks to endorse a lifestyle opposed to God’s Word who thinks homosexuality is wrong? It is highly unlikely.

This is but more sad evidence of the utter apostasy of the Presbyterian Church that one of its ministers can speak at such an event without attracting even a hint of public criticism.

It should be abundantly clear to any child of God that this is a wicked event and the only thing any minister should be doing in relation to it is protesting against it.

Yet this is emphatically not the case with Presbyterian clergy and the leadership is busy washing its hands of its duty in the circumstances.

Northern Ireland is being bombarded with the agents of the sodomite agenda and all who profess Christ have to make it very clear if they are on the side of the world, and therefore the god of this world, the devil, or if they are on the Lord’s side.

Which side will it be for you, dear reader?

Exodus 32:26: “Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp and said, Who is on the Lord’s side?”

Joshua 24:15: “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Rev Andrew Rawding leads celebrations as sodomite ‘Mid Ulster Pride’ group is launched

Daniel 4:37: “…those that walk in pride he is able to abase.”

The wicked and shameful descent of Church of Ireland minister Rev Andrew Rawding (pictured, top) was further deepened on Thursday night, 16 January as he led celebrations marking the launch of the Mid Ulster Pride sodomite grouping.

Deputy Chairman of the Mid Ulster Pride group, he will be one of the chief organisers of the pro-sodomy ‘Pride’ parade which these rebels against God plan to hold in Cookstown, County Tyrone on Saturday, 13 June.

We would urge all Christians to pray with sincerity and faith that God would intervene in the coming months to put their plans awry and cause this event never to take place. If we but have faith as a grain of mustard seed, Jesus Himself tells us, this WILL be done.

Matthew 17:20: “If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

We asked a few months ago what the Church of Ireland was going to do about Rev Andrew Rawding marching in not one, not two, but three sodomite ‘Pride’ parades over the summer of 2019, in Belfast, Londonderry and Newry.

The sickening and deplorable response which was revealed was that they were going to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Not a thing – the Church of Ireland was happy to stand by and let this Christ-denying, Bible-rejecting heretic engage in promoting and supporting those involved in the unspeakably sinful lifestyle associated with the sodomite movement.

If any professing Christian doesn’t think this is a motivator to total and utter separation from the Church of Ireland in every single conceivable way, then we really would be concerned about you.

Amidst the sickening scenes being paraded online of the despicable launch event in the Royal Hotel in Cookstown on Thursday night (and you can see Rev Andrew Rawding wearing a ‘Pride’ scarf in this picture from the event, below), there was certainly some comfort to be gained from what was happening outside.

A sizeable band of protesters gathered outside the Royal Hotel, indeed it appeared to be a larger number than those who attended this despicable event.

A letter had been published in the NewsLetter earlier in the week signed by five Free Presbyterian ministers urging for a protest, each of whom deserve the utmost praise for taking their stand against what is very much the in vogue sin of the age, an issue right at the coalface of the Christian battle today.

We understand a number of different groups gathered to hold the protest, not just Free Presbyterians, and we commend every single person in attendance for spending what was a cold and wet night outside the camp, bearing reproach for our Saviour.

The camp, of course, the worldly venue was the Royal Hotel, and we would urge everyone reading this, whether they live in that Mid Ulster area or are ever in that area passing through, to studiously avoid giving them any custom.

Indeed, on the Mid Ulster Pride facebook page, one can see a series of posts if they scroll back just a brief amount featuring various businesses offering sponsorship and prizes for a raffle held at the launch event to this ungodly grouping.

One of these is the Royal Hotel and the list also features a number of salons, a butcher, a tattoo parlour (not that any Christian should be in the latter in any event) and others. We would encourage all readers to acquaint themselves with the list and make sure they do not fund businesses openly supporting sodomy where at all possible.

On the subject of facebook, a number of individuals saw fit to mock the protesters, prompting a chorus of their pals and cohorts to join in with the mockery and vile, vulgar, filthy abuse.

Clearly the irony of their ‘love everyone’ message not extending to Christians is utterly lost on them.

A great many of the comments, claiming that the protesters were all elderly, which was far from the case, going by photographs of the event, stated that they looked forward to those speaking out for Christ dying. Very loving indeed!

Indeed, one went so far as to say that she would like to “give them all ‘meet baby Jesus’ tablets now”.

Again, very loving indeed of these wonderfully tolerant, open minded people. One can only imagine the hysterical response if a Christian had said something a tenth as violent or offensive as that.

We will remind everyone reading this that the Bible is utterly clear on the matter of homosexuality.

It would appear that Rev Andrew Rawding’s conscience is seared with a hot iron, but for anyone else seeing this who supports such rebellion against God, we hope and pray these words will cause you to see this wicked sin for what it is.

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

Romans 1:24-27: “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.”

Jude 1:7: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

This is but a brief snapshot of the, contrary to the claims of the pro-sodomy movement, NUMEROUS examples of God’s Word outright, categorically, unequivocally condemning same-sex relationships.

It is dishonest or Biblically illiterate to try to claim otherwise.

Rev Andrew Rawding has previously been quoted stating that he had, at a time, considered homosexuality to be wrong, but has changed his mind. God’s Word hasn’t changed though!

Deep down, of course, he knows it is wrong but has allowed himself to believe his own lie and is as those in Romans 1:32 who “have pleasure in them” who commit such grave sins.

That verse says: “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

He is cheering on those who are engaged in a lifestyle utterly contrary to God’s Word and will.

Rev Andrew Rawding ought to be doing the exact opposite, imploring them to turn from their sin.

What a fearful judgement awaits all who fail to warn the wicked from their way.

Ezekiel 3:18: “When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”

There are those who try to claim that Christians who speak out against sodomy are guilty of thinking themselves better than those who support or partake in that lifestyle.

This is categorically not the case.

It is out of a deep love for God’s truth and the souls of all men that we speak out, for we do not wish to see any perish in a lost eternity in hell.

Man is God’s creation, but his sin is not God’s handiwork, salvation is available to any who call upon Christ for it and He is quick to save us if we but seek after Him, as Paul told the Athenians.

Acts 17:26-28 says: “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.”

We owe our breath to God and it is our responsibility to use our fleeting time on this earth to His honour and glory, not to dedicate our time to open defiance of Him.

God has already determined “the bounds of (our) habitation”, He knows how long He will choose to let us live.

People die young and in unexpected circumstances all the time, or are cut off even at bigger ages when it appears all is well with regards their health.

We do not know what lies ahead, we cannot be sure of tomorrow.

Turn from your sin, turn from your lifestyle of rebellion against God, turn to Christ for salvation, seek Him with all of your heart and ask for forgiveness, and He will save you.

Jeremiah 29:13: “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”

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.”

1 John 1:9-10: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”

For the believer, we would urge you once more to pray all the more earnestly for our land.

Let us pray that God would indeed, in wrath remember mercy and that God would be pleased to visit us again with an outpouring of His Spirit in a Holy Ghost revival, and let us pray against this planned LGBT ‘Pride’ event in Cookstown and indeed all such planned events in our country.

Let us have that faith that would move mountains.

New sodomite ‘Pride’ group meeting in Church of Ireland minister’s house

1 Corinthians 6:9-10: “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.”

The great cause of the increasingly godless society in which we live is that of the sodomite agenda and the sodomite’s so-called rights.

It is bad enough and sad enough that much of civic society has first cowered before the sodomite steamroller trying to crush all dissent in its path before then jumping on board the steamroller, but when the professing church does this then it truly is despicable.

Yet that is emphatically what is going on in County Tyrone as Church of Ireland minister Rev Andrew Rawding (pictured, top) has leaped head first into the pro-sodomy movement.

We previously highlighted on this page the fact that Rev Andrew Rawding had arrogantly taken it upon himself to “apologise” to the sodomite movement movement for the church’s alleged mistreatment of those who choose to live their lives in open defiance of God’s Word. When he will apologise to God for his betrayal of His Word is another matter.

Not only that, Rev Andrew Rawding joined in on three sodomite ‘Pride’ parades over the summer, in the cities of Belfast, Londonderry and Newry.

And, worse still, the Church of Ireland, in a despicable, Pontius Pilate-esque act of washing their hands, pathetically stated that official church teaching is that marriage is between one man and one woman but any minister who disagrees with this fundamental Biblical tenet “may continue to hold their point of view”.

How risible is that stance? Does the Word of God mean so little to the Church of Ireland generally and the Diocese of Armagh specifically that they should refuse to take any action against a minister who is acting so openly contrarily to what the Bible teaches?

Secure in the knowledge that he will not be reprimanded in the slightest by the church, Rev Andrew Rawding is further bringing shame and disgrace to the Church of Ireland by hosting a meeting of a recently formed sodomite group in his area.

Mid Ulster Pride has formed in recent months and appears to be based in the Coalisland area, where Rev Andrew Rawding is a minister.

Rev Andrew Rawding has the charge over three churches in that general area, Holy Trinity Church, Brackaville, St Patrick’s Church, Ballyclog and St Patrick’s Church, Donaghendry. It would appear the first of those three is based in Coalisland.

And a post on the Mid Ulster Pride facebook page by one of its members states: “I have been made aware of a new LGBTQ community based in Coalisland for the Mid Ulster LGBTQ community aiming to find support and equality.

“The next meeting is on 28th November in Rev Andrew’s house in the rectory in Coalisland at 7.30pm.”

So there you have it, a Church of Ireland rectory is being used as the base for a sodomite ‘Pride’ grouping.

What an absolutely outrageous situation this is.

What will the Church of Ireland do about it? Will they wring their hands and wash their hands once more? Or will they take swift action to stamp out such wretched abuse of their property and such rank apostasy from one of their ministers?

We would hazard a guess that it will most certainly not be the latter.

Such is Rev Andrew Rawding’s giving over of himself to promoting and supporting that which God has called an “abomination” and “unnatural” that he is providing a base for a sodomite group and, indeed his facebook page profile picture is currently the Mid Ulster Pride logo (pictured, below).

He is doing all that he can to promote something which God has pronounced His curse on.

One need only look at the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah to see just how gravely God looks upon sodomy.

God said their “sin is very grievous” in Genesis 18:20, while Genesis 13:13 says “the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly”.

God considers such wickedness to be “exceedingly” sinful.

Jude 1:7 further demonstrates for us how God’s wrath fell because of their sexual sins, notably their “going after strange flesh”, ie sodomy.

That verse says: “Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

To disregard the clear commands of Scripture in this regard is frankly blasphemous.

Rev Andrew Rawding’s job as a minister is to guide the sheep and point them to the way of salvation, which is through Jesus Christ alone.

Instead, he is leading any under his charge into sin by his voluble support for sodomite marriage.

Rev Andrew Rawding cannot possibly be teaching his three congregations (allowing him to do triple the damage!) the truth of God’s Word when he is, as those who practised and supported sodomy in Romans 1, “chang[ing] the truth of God into a lie”.

Rev Andrew Rawding is putting “bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).

A preacher leading others into error is a most grave thing.

Ezekiel 3:17-19 says: “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”

We are told in 1 Corinthians 6 that, among several other sins, the “effeminate” and “abusers of themselves with mankind” shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

However, we are then told that some of the converts of the church in Corinth had been such sinners, but they were now washed, sanctified and justified “in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God”.

There is salvation available for the homosexual, we are told in 2 Peter 3:9 that God is “longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”.

We know that it is not God’s desire for any to go to hell, but, because He is also a God of justice and will not look upon sin, He will not permit sinners, including the “effeminate” and “abusers of themselves with mankind” to enter the kingdom of heaven.

However, Rev Andrew Rawding is refusing to preach this, in fact he is creating his own, opposite gospel message.

It could rightly be said to Rev Andrew Rawding that “thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life”.

There are two grievous consequences of this.

Firstly, “the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity” and, secondly, “his blood will I require at thine hand”.

There is a sobering thought.

Rev Andrew Rawding may think he is being so loving and gracious, open and tolerant, even Christian, but he is encouraging sodomites on in their sin and condemning them to the fate of dying in their iniquity.

On top of this, he is guilty of the blood of that same sodomite whom he refused to warn, but rather affirmed him in his sin.

Dear reader and, if there is any with any kind of homosexual desires reading this, do not listen to the likes of Rev Andrew Rawding.

They may make you feel better now and pat you on the back, but they are ripening you for a lost eternity in that awful place called hell.

Instead, turn to Christ, He can transform you by the “renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2), he replaces our old desires with new desires, He changes our whole outlook on life and His blood cleanses us from all sin.

Won’t you call on this wonderful Saviour even today? We are told in Acts 16:31 that “whosoever calleth upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”.

If you are saved and reading this, won’t you please share this article widely to help warn as many as possible against the shameful ministry of Rev Andrew Rawding?

Also, we would encourage as many as possible to contact the Diocese of Armagh and the Church of Ireland to ask them what their view is on Rev Andrew Rawding hosting a sodomite ‘Pride’ meeting in the rectory, a property owned by the church?

Do they endorse such use of their property to promote that which the church proclaims to be opposed to?

Or will they sit on their hands and let Rev Andrew Rawding continue to defy God and His Word and bring shame down upon their church?

May even someone in the hierarchy of the Church of Ireland speak out against it and take a stand for Christ to oppose such outrageous apostasy.

Will the Church of Ireland face the same condemnation as Judah?

Ezekiel 22:30: “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”
