All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church holds Transgender Remembrance service

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

2 Timothy 3:13: “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”

When you survey the pitiful state of much of professing Christendom in Ulster today, you cannot help but be reminded of Paul’s caution to Timothy, written under the inspiration of God.

Surely it cannot be disputed that the religious deception is waxing worse and worse in our land.

And no more blatant example of this could surely be found than last week’s ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ service in the reprobate All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church in Belfast.

This church shows such a disregard for the Word of God that it is actually breathtaking.

All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church holds this transgender service every year as it continues to proudly defy God’s Word and the natural order he ordained, which can be seen in the verse at the top of this article.

In addition to this gravely offensive service in the eyes of God, All Souls also held an LGBT ‘Pride’ service back in August to coincide with the sodomite ‘Pride’ celebrations in Belfast.

The Bible is full of condemnations of homosexuality, and just a few can be found in Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:24-27 and 1 Timothy 1:9-10, as well as many other places.

This, however, seems to mean nothing to those in power and those in attendance at All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church.

The service last Sunday, 18 November was described thus on the church’s facebook page: “A special service of prayer, remembrance and communion led by Rev Hudson and Rev Bell alongside other visiting clergy and guests marked the All Souls annual act of reflection and meditation for members of the Transgender Community.

“With thanks to the Focus group for their participation.”

The stated aim of the Focus Trust is as follows: “Supporting transgender and intersex individuals and their families.”

Rev Hudson, meanwhile, is Rev Chris Hudson, a man who in 2015 was named a “transgender champion” for his God-defying work. The picture at the top of this article shows him holding his “transgender champion” award.

And the Rev Bell referred to in that passage is a Rev Alister Bell, assistant minister in that ungodly church.

These are men who are supposed to be ministers of the gospel, but they are instead using their position to spread heresies contrary to the Word of God.

This sort of attitude which distorts and disregards God’s Word is spoken of in Titus 1:15-16, which says: “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”

These men would profess to know God, but in fact by their works they deny him, for holding such services celebrating such rebellion against God is a denial of His Word.

They are teaching doctrines which are nowhere to be found in the Bible.

And for a minister to do such is a direct contradiction of the Bible.

2 Timothy 4:1-3 says: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears”.

Timothy was charged by Paul, under the inspiration of God, to “preach the word”. What is that word? The Bible, as it then was, not yet being quite complete.

He is told to reprove and rebuke those who are straying from the word. Those who seek to condemn this page for taking a stand against sin and rejection of God’s Word would do well to consider this exhortation of Paul.

That passage then informs us that “the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine”.

We will now refer back to verses we mentioned a little earlier, in 1 Timothy 1:9-10: “Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine”.

Those who “defile themselves with mankind”, or those who practice sodomy, are called “contrary to sound doctrine”.

So we have a church which is “contrary to sound doctrine” and which celebrates being so.

What a despicable situation this is.

This church and its ministers, and others like it, are as those warned of by Paul to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:5, which says: “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

Any church which denies the Bible, be it in its stance on homosexuality, transgenderism, separation from apostasy, Romanism or anything else, ought to be turned away from.

Let us remain separate from false religion and its vain sacrifices through the corrupt services it holds.

And let our cry to those caught up in the apostasy be the words of 2 Corinthians 6:17: “…come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing”.

‘LGBT service’ in Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church gets approval of homosexual who brought legal action against Asher’s Bakery

Last weekend, we at ‘Protestant Revival’ revealed the shocking ‘LGBT service’ held by All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church and their minister Rev Chris Hudson (pictured, above) on Sunday past.

In a staggering exhibition of defiance to God, the church sought to honour those who are living at open and brazen variance with God’s Word.

Following the service, the church put up a facebook post bragging about its disgraceful activity, which we have placed below.

It attracted a distressingly high number of ‘likes’ from other facebook users, with a total of 139 people or organisations indicating their approval when we last checked.

And there was definitely a few interesting characters expressing their support for such defiance of God.

Unsurprisingly, there was a ‘like’ from 1st Dunmurry Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, the ‘minister’ of which is ‘Rev’ Linda Ballard, who vowed prior to her ordination to base her ‘ministry’ “around gender issues”.

Then there was a ‘like’ from Lesley Macaulay, a woman whom we described back in June as “the previously obscure but suddenly high profile businesswoman (according to the Belfast Telegraph)” when she voiced loudly and repeatedly her objection to the Presbyterian Church, of which she was a member at the time, deciding to limit full communion to heterosexuals and barring the baptism of children in the care of homosexuals.

And then, most intriguingly of all, the presence of a ‘like’ on the facebook post by Gareth Lee, the sodomite who initially kicked up a fuss and pursued legal action against the Christian Asher’s Bakery.

It was Gareth Lee (pictured, below) who placed the order in Asher’s Bakery for what became known as the “gay cake”.

This was a cake he requested from the bakery, which he admitted himself had previously served him quite obligingly, bearing the slogan, ‘Support Gay Marriage’ and emblazoned with the name of a sodomite grouping of which Gareth Lee is a member.

To ice such a message would have gone against the Christian owners’ beliefs, the McArthur family. We are warned in Scripture not to wish evil-doers well in their efforts.

2 John 1:10-11 says: “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

The order was initially taken by another member of staff who was unsure how to react in the situation before Daniel McArthur, the manager, told Gareth Lee they were not able to fulfil the order as it went against their Christian convictions and refunded him.

Unhappy, Gareth Lee took his complaint to the (In)Equality Commission, the Deputy Chief Commissioner of which is a Presbyterian’minister’, the ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll (1 Timothy 2:12), who pursued the Christian McArthur family through the courts.

Disgracefully, the court found they had discriminated against Gareth Lee and ordered them to pay him compensation. Asher’s contested the decision and the matter now sits with the UK Supreme Court, with a final verdict expected later this year.

And it was this individual who indicated their approval for such a God-defying service as this.

Of course, it is no surprise to see a sodomite showing their support for such a church service, but it is very instructive as to the nature of the type of people the minister of that church chooses to align with and draws support from.

The minister of All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, Rev Chris Hudson, is on friendly terms with a character who has hounded through the courts the Christian owners of a bakery because they refuse to fall prostrate at the feet of the sodomite agenda.

It is like unto the dictatorial and blasphemous order from King Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon to bow down before a golden image he had made to worship it.

When the faithful servants of Christ, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to do so, they kindled the wrath of the heathen.

Daniel 3:12-13,16-19: “There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. Then they brought these men before the king. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated.”

Notice that the “form of his visage was changed against” these three servants of the one true God when they took their stand.

That is the same for the child of God when they take their stand. People with whom you may have previously been on civil, even amiable terms, when confronted with your beliefs which you have taken from God’s Word, will often change their attitude towards you.

Gareth Lee had previously made purchases from Asher’s Bakery and there had never been a problem. But when they told him they would not bow down to the sodomite agenda, everything changed.

However, this man is pleased by the actions of Rev Chris Hudson, a man who would claim to be serving God.

It is vital that we point out that regardless of his courting of the sodomite agenda, Rev Chris Hudson is in grave error by simply being a part of the Non-Subscribing Church.

This is because that church denies the divinity of Christ, they say he is not God the Son, which means they deny salvation by the cleansing power of the blood of Christ.

That makes it a false church, but still one which is leading poor blinded sinners to hell.

David could gladly say in Psalm 26:4-5: “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.”

Rev Chris Hudson certainly cannot say that. Rather, he has actively sought them out and encouraged them to persist in their wicked ways, claiming that God is in approval of their vileness.

He is playing a very dangerous game indeed with his own soul, as he is warned in Isaiah 5:20.

It says: “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!”

Dear reader, let us reject the “doctrines of devils” (1 Timothy 4:1) and instead embrace Christ in all His fullness.

If you are as yet unsaved, it is our prayer that God will speak to you, for it is He alone who can convict you of your sin and cause you to come unto him humbly and penitently for forgiveness.

Romans 10:9-10: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”

Presbyterian ‘minister’ Lesley Carroll gives her backing to transgenderism while helping persecute Asher’s Bakery

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

At ‘Protestant Revival’, we have previously highlighted the shocking ecumenical conduct of the so-called Presbyterian ‘minister’, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll (1 Timothy 2:12).

This includes addressing an ecumenical service in a Roman Catholic chapel in County Tyrone in January, at which she appeared to equate the Pope’s planned visit to Ireland with the birth of Jesus and stated that the Second Vatican Council offered hope to Christianity.

In addition to this heretical nonsense, we then featured her role as second-in-command of the (In)Equality Commission, the body bringing the disgraceful legal action against the Christian Asher’s Bakery, who have been persecuted by the forces of the state for refusing to betray their Christian principles by icing a cake with a message supporting gay marriage, a notion utterly repugnant to the Word of God (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27).

She has not offered one public pronouncement speaking out against the disgraceful treatment of the McArthur family, who own Asher’s Bakery, and continues to hold her position as Deputy Chief Commissioner and enthusiastically support the Inequality Commission’s work.

And now, while refusing to support Asher’s Bakery, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll has instead demonstrated her public support for the misguided and utterly unbiblical notion of transgenderism.

A transgender group called the ‘Belfast Butterfly Club’ recently marked 25 years of promoting its delusion and who was the special guest? The ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll, of course.

According to the Belfast Butterfly Club’s website, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll “congratulated the club on its 25 years of transgender support charity work across Northern Ireland”.

She is also pictured on the right of our image at the top of this article with a leading member of this transgender grouping.

It is most instructive that a supposed ‘minister’ of the gospel, though of course it’s not a position she is entitled to hold, would rather be pictured showing her support to a group utterly at odds with God’s Word than with the Christian owners of Asher’s Bakery.

We would also say at this point, lest anyone reading this should start with the “but Jesus dined with sinners” line they love to peddle, that Jesus didn’t actively endorse sinful lifestyles.

Jesus didn’t endorse the Samaritan woman at the well’s sinful lifestyle. He didn’t say that having had five husbands was ok.

John 4:16-18: “Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.”

These same twisters of God’s Word also love to say about how Jesus ministered to prostitutes. That was an absolutely proper thing to do, everyone has a soul in need of salvation, but did Jesus give his blessing to immorality? Of course not. He sought to save people from their sinful estate.

Had there been an event in Jesus’ time such as this one in Belfast, would Jesus have attended and offered best wishes to the ‘Butterfly Club’? The very notion is utterly blasphemous.

‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll was not there to proselytise, otherwise she would not have been invited.

Indeed, this is not the first time that ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll has offered her support to the anti-Christian notion of transgenderism.

In November 2015, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll offered her support to another transgender grouping, the ‘Focus Trust’. Its tagline on its website neatly sums up its purpose: ‘Supporting transgender and intersex individuals and their families’.

According to the report on its website, ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll gave a reading. Whether or not it was from the Bible we are not told, but we can be fairly confident she didn’t read any of the verses already specified in this article.

‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll also attended that event in her role as Deputy Chief Commissioner of the Inequality Commission.

The event was termed as a ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ for those “transgender and intersex individuals worldwide who have lost their lives because of society’s intolerance towards them due to a condition they were born with”.

We are not sure what that refers to, but certainly were they physically harmed or subjected to mental abuse because of their decision to live in the way they have chosen, then that is wrong.

However, the condition they are actually born with, like us all, is sin.

Romans 3:23 reminds us that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

Jeremiah 9:11 says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

Psalm 51:5 says: “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.”

We are all natural born sinners, from the point of our conception and the notion of ‘changing’ our gender based on our own feelings is an affront to God.

This meeting from 2015 was held in All Souls Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church in Belfast.

The denomination takes its name from the fact they refused to subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith at the time Henry Cooke led a great clear-out in the Presbyterian Church.

Among other major issues with the church, it adopts a Unitarian stance, thus rejecting the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity, meaning they reject the truth of Christ being God, making the church heretical and therefore somewhere no Presbyterian ‘minister’ or worshipper should attend, or indeed those belonging to any other denomination.

It would appear, from the report already referred to, this ‘Transgender Day of Remembrance’ happens in the Church annually, under the auspices of the minister there, Rev Chris Hudson.

At the event, he was presented with a ‘Transgender Champion’ award by the Moderator of the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church, the Right (more like Wrong) Reverend Chris Wilson, on behalf of the Focus Trust.

Further evidence of the shocking defiance to God in that church was then demonstrated as a gift was presented to a student ‘minister’ of that denomination, a Linda Ballard (pictured, below). The report explains that this Linda Ballard “plans to form her ministry around gender issues”.

The very basis of her supposed ministry of the gospel is something utterly corrupt and contrary to God’s natural order. That is a truly disgraceful rejection of Biblical Christianity.

Linda Ballard is now the ‘minister’ of 1st Dunmurry Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church.

These are the sort of characters that ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll prefers to associate with.

Proverbs 13:20: “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”

Psalm 26:4-5: “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.”

‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll certainly does not heed this advice from the Word of God.

As we stated earlier, were ‘Rev’ Lesley Carroll seeking the conversion of these characters, she would not be invited to these events.

Her compromise with the most brazen of sins is obvious, repeated and grave.

And any minister who teaches such error is guilty of the most serious offence in the eyes of God.

Ezekiel 33:8 says: “When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”

Reader, if you are as yet unsaved, please do not allow your blood to be on the hands of some apostate preacher, but rather heed the warnings of Christ and take of his free offer of grace.

Repent of your sin to God and ask forgiveness and He will save you.

1 John 1:8-9: “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
