Presbyterian minister new leader of ecumenical den of iniquity, Corrymeela

Ezekiel 13:2-5, 8-10: “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the Lord. Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God. And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord God. Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace”.

A Presbyterian minister has taken over as the new Leader of the Corrymeela Community, the leading hub of ecumenical compromise in our land.

The Rev Alex Wimberly (pictured, top) has taken up the role which pays in the region of £50,000 per year, replacing outgoing Leader, the sodomite Romanist Padraig O Tuama.

Now, if you knew nothing else of the Corrymeela Community, the fact that its previous leader was a sodomite Romanist would tell you all you need to know.

The teachings of the Church of Rome are utterly repugnant to the Word of God.

The Mass, Purgatory, Mariolatry, offering of prayers for the dead, idolatry, relics and, worst of all, denial of salvation by faith alone, all mark Rome out as utterly contrary to Christianity.

Sodomy, meanwhile, is so obviously classed as a grave sin by God that for any to try to say otherwise demonstrates an individual who has rejected the Bible.

For those who perhaps may not be overly aware of the Corrymeela Community, it is an avowedly ecumenical organisation seeking to promote religious unity between Protestants and Catholics.

It has been weaving its web of deceit from its base on the north coast of Northern Ireland, in the town of Ballycastle, for more than 50 years.

Indeed, the supposedly Protestant Presbyterian Church has been instrumental in propagating this anti-Christian organisation from the outset.

Its first Leader and founder was Rev Ray Davey, a Presbyterian minister. He was replaced as Leader by Rev John Morrow, another Presbyterian minister, who had also played a key role in the foundation of the den of deceit in Ballycastle.

It is interesting to note that the centre was founded in 1965, several years before the euphemistically entitled ‘Troubles’ (read, armed Romanist uprising against the lawful rulers of the land) began.

Given Corrymeela loves to position itself as some sort of conflict resolution centre, it is very instructive it was founded before the bloodshed began, further demonstrating this was a place set up to promote ecumenical compromise.

And now we have another Presbyterian minister taking the leading role in rejecting the Word of God.

Rev Alex Wimberly was formerly the minister of McCracken Memorial Presbyterian Church in Belfast, spreading his ecumenical nonsense there for seven years, before taking up a role as chaplain at Corrymeela.

Has he been chucked out of the Presbyterian Church? What do you think?

The Presbyterian Church seems to tolerate all sorts of inappropriate characters in its pulpits and in association with it.

There is Rev Steve Stockman, a brazen ecumenist and organiser of the ungodly Four Corners Festival, who is the long-time minister of Fitzroy Presbyterian Church.

Then you have Rev Lesley Carroll (pictured, above), former minister of Fortwilliam and Macrory Presbyterian Church in Belfast who was Deputy Chief Commissioner of the Equality Commission throughout the Asher’s Bakery saga.

Add to that the likes of ‘Rev’ Liz Hughes and Rev John Dickinson (pictured, below), the great Carnmoney crowd surfer, who both have given their backing to LGBT campaigner and so-called Christian, Vicky Beeching.

There are others we could name, but this is surely plenty to cause serious alarm among any who subscribe to the Presbyterian Church.

There are many warnings in Scripture about refusing to deal with sin.

One of the most clear of these can be found in God’s dealing with the children of Israel in the book of Judges.

They were instructed to utterly drive out those who worshipped false gods.

They failed to do so and God’s judgement fell.

Judges 2:2-3: “And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this? Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.”

By making peace with sin, the Presbyterian Church put itself in this position.

Will the Presbyterian Church make any moves to oppose such wickedness being carried out by one of its ordained ministers at a centre devoted to compromise with Rome?

We would encourage all readers to make their objections to this situation known clearly by contacting directly their own local Presbyterian minister, whether you are a Presbyterian or not, and also to contact the Clerk of the Presbyterian Church, Rev Trevor Gribben.

You can do this in a number of ways:

1. By writing to Assembly Buildings, 2-10 Fisherwick Place, Belfast, BT1 6DW

2. By emailing clerk@presbyterianireland.org

3. By phoning (028) 9041 7208

Don’t let them fob you off by saying Rev Alex Wimberly’s role is independent of the Presbyterian Church, he remains a minister of the Presbyterian Church.

Will the Presbyterian Church take any stand against Rev Alex Wimberly assuming the role of leading ecumenism in Northern Ireland?

This is a very important question and we can rightly make the challenge to the Presbyterian Church, just as Joshua did to the children of Israel, outlined in Joshua 24:15.

It says: “Choose you this day whom ye will serve”.

Going by its previous track record, this church has chosen apostasy.

Regardless of what the Presbyterian Church does or doesn’t do, let us be determined to serve the Lord and have the same resolution as did Joshua at the end of that same verse.

Let us say, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”.

Presbyterian ‘minister’ preaching at Romanist novena celebrating group of priests

Take a moment to look at and re-read the headline at the top of this article.

That is an utterly factual headline, yet it is hard to believe it is true, isn’t it?

Reading that, surely the question comes to mind, ‘what on earth are they doing that for?’

It’s definitely a good question.

Other more specific questions might also spring to mind, such as:

Why would someone who claims to be a minister of Jesus Christ be celebrating a Romanist grouping?

Why would someone who claims to be a minister of Jesus Christ want to take part in a novena, a prayer event which often includes the invocation of Mary?

These, also, are very good questions, and ones which ought to be addressed to ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson.

It is she who will be engaging in this repugnant betrayal of Jesus Christ and, indeed, of her own ordination vows.

Now, of course, she ought not to be in the position of ‘minister’ as this in itself shows ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson’s utter rejection of God’s Word.

1 Timothy 2:11-12 outlines this very clearly for ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson and all those who likewise seek to overthrow God’s Word in this most important matter. It says: “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

However, even leaving that to one side briefly, this is a very grave offence against God.

‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson will be preaching at the ‘Novena of Hope 2019’ at The Graan, a Romanist chapel near Enniskillen in County Fermanagh which, for a long time, has been the clerical home of noted Romanist, ‘Father’ Brian d’Arcy (pictured, below).

It is being held to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Romanist grouping of the Passionists.

A novena is a nine day prayer event and this one will run from Saturday, 23 March to Monday, 1 April, with ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson to sow her ecumenical, heretical seeds of deceit on Thursday, 27 March.

Wikipedia gives some of the history of the novena, including its links to Mariolatry and its seal of approval from the Papacy. It says: “The practice grew by the Middle Ages to include pious prayers for nine days before a feast in honour of a saint identified on a liturgical calendar. By the 11th century, the Novena practice had become a means in Christianity of praying to petition personal or spiritual favour to a saint, such as Virgin Mary. After the Reformation and Counter-Reformation era, the Catholic Church formally approved Novenas, in particular through the papal approvals of a large number of Novenas by Pope Pius IX.”

When ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson took her ordination vows in 1977, she would have stated her objection to the Pope as “that antichrist, that man of sin and son of perdition” by signing the Westminster Confession of Faith. What a mockery she has made of her vows!

‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson is well known for her ecumenical betrayal of Protestantism and, indeed, in a recent interview with the Belfast Telegraph, conducted by another old ecumenist, Alf McCreary, she indicated her indifference to those who would criticise her in her religious practices.

We don’t expect that, should she read this, it will make the slightest difference to her, though we may pray God will lift the scales from her eyes, but we want to urge Presbyterians or those who are friendly with anyone in that church to separate from this church and urge their friends and family to do likewise.

This is a woman who, despite her years of ecumenical compromise, remains in great standing in the Presbyterian Church, and was handed an honorary doctorate by the Presbyterian Church in 2001, years after she had left full time ministry to launch her anti-Christian Restoration Ministries.

Why does the Presbyterian Church still hold her in high regard?

It truly is confusing to anyone who refers to the Word of God for their spiritual guidance, rather than their own fancies, notions or thoughts.

The Presbyterian Church has emphatically refused to follow the Scriptural command to separate from false religion.

2 Corinthians 6:14-17 is crystal clear on this: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.

The phrase within those verses asking “what agreement hath the temple of God with idols” is most pertinent in this instance.

An article in the Romanist Irish News this past week highlights that a specially created “icon”, or image, has been created to mark this novena.

This is quite clearly an expression of idolatry, yet ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson is evidently more than happy to identify with such Christ rejection.

While Rome conveniently omits the Second Commandment from their own Ten Commandments, this doesn’t mean it is not still relevant.

We’ll remind readers and in particular ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson and any who would seek to defend her or her denomination for harbouring her even yet, what the Second Commandment is.

Exodus 20:4-5 says: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”

“Thou shalt not make any graven image”, it says. Perhaps ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson needs to read this closely, although even a cursory examination makes it abundantly clear she is endorsing paganism.

The closing words of 1 John further demonstrate this with utter clarity.

It says in 1 John 5:19-21: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.”

John, in his parting comments, speaks of the discernment given to the child of God to know the difference between righteousness and wickedness. He then continues and says in the next God inspired breath, as it were, to “keep yourselves from idols”.

So we can clearly see the discerning Christian is to stay well clear of idols, yet here is ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson preaching at a meeting which has had a specially commissioned idol created for it.

What a blasphemy!

Again, the Word of God is very clear and critical of these idols and those who make and serve them.

Psalm 135:15-18 says: “The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not; They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths. They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.”

This icon, which is dumb, deaf and mute, created for the novena ‘Rev’ Ruth Patterson is preaching at is an example of heathenism and God says, through the Psalmist, that those who make them and those who trust in them are like those idols.

It is quite the condemnation, and yet here we have a Presbyterian ‘minister’, held in high regard by her church, so much so that on two occasions her name was put forward to be Moderator, joining in with senseless heathenism.

Is there a single Presbyterian minister who will raise their voice against such a disgraceful situation? Even one? Sadly, based on what we have seen over the years, it would seem highly unlikely, though we would be very pleased to be proven wrong.

Better still, will any Presbyterian minister come to their senses and realise the Bible forbids women from being ministers and speak out against it before separating from the Presbyterian Church?

Here, too, is a challenge for any minister in a church which remains faithful to the Word of God, to speak out against such wretched rejection of the Word of God.

Let us speak out for Christ.

Dear reader, won’t you please urge anyone you know who is involved in that church to “come out from among them, and be ye separate”.

Our reward for holding a Biblical separatist position is great, for we are told at the end of that 18th verse of 2 Corinthians 6 that if you do that, God “will receive you”.

Let us separate ourselves unto God, rather than stay compromised and polluted by fellowship with that which has ignored, overthrown and rejected God’s Word.

And, if you are as yet unsaved and perhaps attending a church which fails to preach the gospel, won’t you even come to Christ for salvation.

The way of salvation is simple, we are told that we must repent of our sins and believe on Jesus Christ.

Jesus says in Mark 1:15 that we are to “repent ye, and believe the gospel”.

1 John 1:9 tells us: “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Acts 16:31 says: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”.

It is Jesus’ blood which makes us fit for heaven, not the sacramental system of Rome, not the namby pamby social gospel of so many apostate Protestant churches, not church attendance, not financial contribution to the church, it is nothing but the blood of Jesus.

1 John 1:7: “…the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

Women helping lead ecumenical sell-out to Rome

Jeremiah 9:13-18: “And the Lord saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink. I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Consider ye, and call for the mourning women, that they may come; and send for cunning women, that they may come: And let them make haste, and take up a wailing for us, that our eyes may run down with tears, and our eyelids gush out with waters.”

The Women’s World Day of Prayer is just one of the many events, held largely in what used to be Protestant churches but who have long since let go of any real semblance of Biblical Protestantism, which seeks to promote unity with the pagan Romanist system.

And last Friday, 1 March, we are aware of no less than 55 such outright rejections of God’s Word being held throughout our land.

No county in Northern Ireland remained untouched by this ecumenical compromise as the land was covered with rebellion against God.

Of course, it was done under the guise of Christianity, as the Protestant, Biblical principles of earnest contention for the faith (Jude v 3) and reproving the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11) were thrown out the window, making the whole event nothing more than a sham.

And this sham crying out to God in these prayer events are reminiscent of the professional, false mourners employed in the days of Jeremiah, as referenced in the Scripture passage at the top of this article.

Just as they were employed to make a show of mourning and lamentation for the judgments of God befalling Judah, so, too, these women are leading a pretence of earnestness and zeal towards God.

However, by their involvement in such an ecumenical affair, both hosted in Romanist churches and advertised in Romanist parish bulletins, they are utterly subverting the gospel of Christ.

The teaching of Rome is so utterly contrary to the teaching of God’s Word that to even try to marry the two together is offensive.

Lest any should try to defend the purity of the Women’s World Day of Prayer, on its own website, it describes itself as “a worldwide ecumenical movement”.

And this is how it refers to the involvement of Romanists.

“It was not until the reforms of the second Vatican Council that Roman Catholic women were able to take a full part in the day of prayer and in 1967 the day was celebrated at a special service in Westminster Cathedral, by invitation of Cardinal Heenan.

“In 1969 the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organisations encouraged Roman Catholic women worldwide to participate in WDP and to make this possible WUCWO moved their own day of prayer from March to May.”

So Roman Catholics were eagerly invited to pray alongside supposed Protestants as soon as the Pope had given them the go-ahead.

Let us reiterate, this is the Women’s World Day of Prayer website saying this, condemning themselves with their own words.

And it is perhaps the subject of prayer which demonstrates one of the greatest contrasts between the teaching of Rome and the teaching of the Bible.

Rome teaches of prayer to Mary and to long dead so-called ‘saints’, despite this being repugnant to the Word of God.

Here is an example of a very common prayer said during the rosary by Roman Catholics.

“Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.”

What a dreadful utterance this is, and one which is made every day by millions of the poor, deluded adherents of Rome.

Where the address of “holy Queen” comes from, we do not know, but it certainly does not come from the Bible. At no point throughout the Scriptures is Mary referred to in this manner. It is a plainly unscriptural title.

They speak of “crying” to Mary and “sending up their sighs” and call her a “most gracious Advocate”.

This is clearly blasphemous nonsense, as the Bible very obviously demonstrates. Our sole advocate is Jesus Christ, we don’t approach the Father through Mary, but it is only through His precious Son.

1 John 2:1: “My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:”

1 Timothy 2:5: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

The prayer also includes the blasphemous phrase “show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus”.

We don’t approach Jesus through Mary, or through anyone else, we can come directly to Him.

Hebrews 4:14-16: “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

This is a very common example of the sort of prayers offered up by Roman Catholics, and as such why would anyone want to join in prayer with those who freely utter such grave blasphemies?

Yet here we have it being encouraged and practised throughout our land.

It matters not whether devotions to Mary were expressed at any of these meetings, this is a very clear demonstration of the rejection of God’s Word on the crucial matter of separation from false worship.

Were any of the Roman Catholic devotees at these meetings clutching rosary beads as they prayed? Some of these events were held in Romanist chapels, meaning all those in attendance were surrounded by the idols and images which are adored by Roman Catholics.

Those Romanist chapels involved were in Limavady, County Londonderry, Glenavy, County Antrim and in Kilmore, County Armagh.

We have compiled a list of churches of whom we are aware of having hosted a celebration of this ungodly festival, which is at the bottom of this article.

If you or anyone you know is connected with any of these churches, won’t you please separate yourself or implore those you know to do so.

We ought to put faithfulness to God and His Word far above some misguided loyalty to a church which ignores and shuns its responsibilities.

Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

‘If hell exists, it is empty’ – disgraceful claim of Presbyterian minister Rev Ernie Rea

Revelation 20:15: “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

There are few more well known aspects of Christianity than the reality of an eternity in hell for those who reject Christ.

There are many who have foolish notions about who actually ends up in hell, the most common of which being a belief that hardly anyone is bad enough to go to hell, and certainly not yourself.

It is almost as if so long as you’re basically not responsible for millions of deaths like Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin then you’ll go to heaven.

This foolish notion is bad enough in those who are not church goers, but it is outright dangerous if it is held by ministers, as is the case in many places today.

Comments along the lines of “they lived their life the best they could” or variants thereof are the frequent refrain of the apostate minister at funerals of the unsaved.

Such ministers ought to be chucked out of the pulpits they are polluting.

However, even worse still are those who even question or deny the existence of hell, or say that God couldn’t possibly send anyone to hell.

And someone who has managed to combine both of those vexatious lies is Rev Ernie Rea (pictured, top), an ordained Presbyterian minister.

In an interview with the Belfast Telegraph in the latest of the weekly feature on religious figures from Northern Ireland, Rev Ernie Rea propagated his heretical views on hell.

When asked if he had any fears about hell, he said: “If Hell exists, it is empty. A loving God could not condemn one of his children to everlasting fire.”

This statement is so spiritually misleading and theologically heretical that it is truly a disgrace.

One must wonder if he has ever actually read the Bible.

The reality of hell is so prevalent throughout Holy Scriptures that denial of it is frankly remarkable.

Furthermore, denial of the existence of hell is a rejection of the gospel message and indeed has the effect of calling God a liar.

These are the words of Jesus.

Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Now, if Jesus says that hell does exist, but Rev Ernie Rea says it doesn’t, how can there be any other conclusion to be drawn than that Rev Ernie Rea is calling Jesus, Who is God the Son, a liar?

Rev Ernie Rea says that even if hell does exist, then it is empty.

Well, Jesus says we ought to fear him, referring to God, who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

That is certainly not consistent with Rev Ernie Rea and his comments. And if there is nobody in hell, that means God is full of empty threats, and is therefore not a faithful witness and rejects justice.

God forbid that any should teach such lies, but here are the views of Rev Ernie Rea.

Rev Ernie Rea should also read the verses at the top of this article to demonstrate clearly that a great many people sadly are, and sadly will be, cast into hell.

And this vile lie on his behalf will lead more poor lost sinners into an eternity in hell.

If there is no hell then there is no need for forgiveness, according to his twisted theology.

However, in reality, if we do not seek forgiveness, we will die in our sins and we will be lost in hell forever.

Oh what a dreadful lie this man is propagating, and oh what an awful price there is to be paid by those who subscribe to this man’s lies.

This foolish, sinful notion that God couldn’t possibly send anyone to hell is a lie from the pit of hell.

This notion is truly at odds with the Word of God.

In his warnings to the children of Israel, who had the temerity to question the providence and will of God, He said in Ezekiel 18:29-32: “Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal? Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin. Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.”

God says here that death awaits those who reject Him and set their face against His Word.

Rev Ernie Rea also talks of God’s children and he is right in the sense that God certainly will not condemn one of his children to everlasting fire.

The problem with his comment is that by claiming that “if hell exists, it is empty”, he is saying that everyone is one of God’s children, which is a misrepresentation of the gospel message.

Sin has separated us all from God and we can only be with him in heaven if we repent of our sins.

1 John 3 examines the difference between the child of God and the child of the devil.

1 John 3:1-2,8,12 says: “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.”

Cain was “of that wicked one”, yet, according to Rev Ernie Rea’s theology, Cain must be in heaven.

What nonsense!

The book of 1 John also speaks of how there are more people in the world who are sadly heading for hell than for heaven.

1 John 5:19 says: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”

That doesn’t sound much like hell is or is going to be empty.

The passage in 1 John 3 speaks of the sons of God, but what about the children of disobedience whom Rev Ernie Rea seems to think don’t exist.

Yet again, the Bible, which is God’s inspired Word, clearly demonstrates the ungodliness of his view.

Writing to the saints in Ephesus, Paul spoke of the difference in their lives between their ungodly days and after they got saved.

Ephesians 2:1-3 says: “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.”

The course of this world is sinful, the saved were once children of wrath, even as others, meaning many still are the children of wrath.

What a false teacher Rev Ernie Rea is and God has a word for him and a warning to any who might pay heed to what he has to say.

Ephesians 5:6: “Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”

Dear reader, if you are as yet unsaved, won’t you turn to Christ for salvation, put your faith and trust in Him and repent of your sins.

It is the only way you will escape the dreadful reality of hell.

Hebrews 2:3: “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation?”

Presbyterian Moderator Rev Charles McMullen refuses to condemn sodomy as a sin

1 Samuel 2:30: “…for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”

The Presbyterian Moderator has refused to state whether or not he believes sodomy is a sin.

When asked in an interview with the Belfast Telegraph if he personally believed that homosexuality was sinful, Rev Charles McMullen said he was “not going to answer that”.

What a craven act of cowardice!

The role of a minister is to tell the truth to the people, regardless of whether he thinks the people want to hear it.

Based on other comments Rev Charles McMullen made during the interview, it would appear he probably does think homosexuality is contrary to God’s Word (how anyone could think otherwise is frankly remarkable), but he clearly lacked the courage to come out and say it.

And what a disgraceful situation that he consciously refuses to take his stand for Christ.

Rev Charles McMullen is utterly ignoring the charge laid down to preachers in 2 Timothy 4:2, which says: “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

Condemnation of sodomy, which God has called an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22) is very much out of season in this day of apostasy, but Rev Charles McMullen has a God ordained responsibility to speak the truth.

When he doesn’t do that he consciously chooses to dishonour God.

In addition, as a minister, Rev Charles McMullen has a solemn responsibility to point out sin and to warn of the judgment to come for those who persist in it.

When a minister fails to do that, then the blood of the sinner is on their hands.

Ezekiel 33:2-9: “Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. 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. So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. 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. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”

Any homosexual who read that article would not have been caused an uncomfortable moment by Rev Charles McMullen’s non-answer.

How much blood of homosexuals persisting in that which God’s Word has said is “against nature” is on the hands of Rev Charles McMullen?

Indeed, Rev Charles McMullen’s vow of silence on the matter marks him out as the epitome of the dumb dog preachers condemned by God.

Isaiah 56:10: “His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.”

Throughout the course of the interview, Rev Charles McMullen also rejects the Biblical prohibition placed on permitting the unsaved to partake in the Lord’s table.

Rev Charles McMullen said: “Nobody is being prevented from coming into Sunday services or taking Communion as the Lord’s table is open to all.

“And all of our churches need to be welcoming places where no one is excluded from coming forward to worship or to receive pastoral care or to take Communion together.”

Let’s compare this with what the Bible has to say about taking Communion.

1 Corinthians 11:27-29: “Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.”

So not only is Rev Charles McMullen guilty of the blood of sodomites he refuses to warn of the sinfulness of their lifestyle, but he is also encouraging them, and other unsaved people, to be “guilty of the body and blood of the Lord”.

How shameful that is.

Of course, Rev Charles McMullen is well acquainted with associating with those who are guilty of the body and blood of Jesus.

As soon as he was named the new Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Rev Charles McMullen was falling over himself to invite himself to meet “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

The Pope is the man who heads up the utterly evil Roman Catholic system, which in its chapels throughout the world, every day offers up a false, blasphemous sacrifice of Christ in its “dangerous deceit” of the Mass.

Not that that matters to Rev Charles McMullen as he would far rather join in with the leader of the most evil organisation on earth than warn poor lost sodomites bound for hell of the eternal danger they are in.

Praise God sodomites, and indeed anyone can be saved by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

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.”

The effeminate and the abusers of themselves with mankind can be saved, indeed were saved in Corinth.

However, you won’t hear that positive message from Rev Charles McMullen as he is too busy trying not to offend people, flattering them all the way to hell.

John 8:31-32: “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Ballymena Presbyterian church invites Papists to ecumenical prayer meeting

The High Kirk Presbyterian Church in Ballymena has held an ecumenical prayer meeting to which practising Roman Catholics, who offer prayer to Mary and to dead so-called ‘Saints’, were warmly invited.

Entitled ‘Prayers of Blessing for Ballymena’, the event hosted by the allegedly Protestant church was advertised in the Roman Catholic parish bulletin in the County Antrim town.

Demonstrating the continued unchanged nature of the Church of Rome, the Roman Catholic faithful in the town are also advised in the same bulletin, just a couple of lines down, that they can gain a “plenary indulgence” between the 1st and 8th of November by “visiting a cemetery or church and praying for the dead”.

The issue of indulgences was the proverbial “straw that broke the camel’s back” for Martin Luther 501 years ago and prompted the then Roman Catholic monk to nail his 95 Theses to the door of the Church in Wittenberg.

And over half a millennium later, Rome is still offering its false gospel of works-based salvation to its poor, deluded adherents.

Not only that, they are still teaching the blasphemy of offering prayers for the dead, something which is utterly contrary to the Bible’s teaching.

As we have said in previous articles, there is a fine Scriptural example in the story of David and his adulterous child with Bathsheba.

Remember, that David, despite his sin (and we are all sinners), was called a man after God’s own heart.

His view, when his child died, as articulated in 2 Samuel 12:22-23, was: “And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

David ceased to petition God for his child when he died, as he knew there was no point, yet Rome is to this day blasphemously claiming, and this particular indulgence is coming from the Pope himself, that prayers for the dead are profitable both for the deceased and for the person offering the prayer.

And this is what High Kirk Presbyterian Church in Ballymena is seeking to associate themselves with. Shame on them.

The ecumenical prayer meeting they hosted was held on Thursday, 1 November, the day after Reformation Day, and the 1st of November just so happens to have been the first day of the week of indulgence granted by “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

So there could well have been those practising Romanists who had offered prayers for the dead in a Papist graveyard before heading across town to High Kirk Presbyterian Church to offer prayers there.

What a dreadfully confused situation this is.

Adding to the confusion is the question of to whom were the prayers offered in High Kirk Presbyterian Church? Rome encourages the praying to Mary and to dead ‘Saints’.

The Bible teaches in 1 Timothy 2:5 that “there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

“No man cometh unto the Father, but by me”, says Jesus in John 14:6.

But here we have Romanists, who are told by their religious leaders to offer up all manner of polluted worship, coming into a so-called Protestant church and being encouraged to take part in what is clearly an ecumenical prayer meeting.

There will be no true blessing in Ballymena while church leaders reject the Biblical principle of separation from the workers of evil.

This is clearly commanded in Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

This church, whose minister is Rev Norman Cameron (pictured, top), has a track record for ecumenical compromise, with last year’s Christmas service featuring a performance by the choir of a local Roman Catholic primary school, St Brigid’s, while in 2013 they hosted an event called ‘City Changing Unity’, with that event description saying its target was “transforming communities through inter-church partnerships”.

This is brazenly ecumenical activity.

As the week of plenary indulgences proves, Rome has moved not one iota from its anti-Scriptural stance of more than 500 years ago.

Sadly, so many formerly Protestant churches have departed from the true faith and have rejected God and His Word.

We don’t see practitioners of other faiths, and they false faiths, conceding ground the way these lily-livered alleged Protestants are.

Let us fearlessly take our stand, hold fast our glorious Protestant heritage and never give in to the enemies of the gospel.

Jeremiah 2:11: “Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit.”

Jeremiah 2:32: “Can a maid forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without number.”

Presbyterian moderator running into the arms of the Pope

The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, Rev Charles McMullen (pictured, above) has got his wish and will fall prostrate at the feet of the anti-Christian Roman Catholic system this weekend when he meets with the Pope.

As soon as it was announced that the Bangor based Presbyterian would take over as Moderator this year, Rev Charles McMullen indicated his great eagerness to meet with the man he vowed at his ordination was “that man of sin, and son of perdition”.

What does Rev Charles McMullen make of his ordination vows now having previously subscribed to the Westminster Confession of Faith?

It is hard to see how this act can be seen as anything other than a betrayal of them.

This is what Rev Charles McMullen said back in February when it was revealed he would become the new Moderator (you can read our article at the time by clicking here).

He said: “We don’t know for certain if the Pope is coming and if he is there would need to be some invitation extended to us.

“If an invitation was extended, our two churches would work out the basis on which that meeting would occur.

“As far as I am concerned I would relish the opportunity to meet the Pope” (pictured, below).

There you go then, Rev Charles McMullen, the leader of the largest so-called Protestant church in Ireland as a whole, is relishing the opportunity to meet the man he vowed was “that Antichrist”.

If he believes what he vowed so as to make what one would certainly assume is a very comfortable living from the ministry, then he is certainly choosing some very dodgy company to keep.

If, on the other hand, he doesn’t believe the Westminster Confession of Faith, what is he doing in a Presbyterian pulpit or with a clerical collar round his neck, much less leading the Presbyterian Church?

More importantly still, he clearly doesn’t believe the Bible, which says to “come out from among them, and be ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing” (2 Corinthians 6:17).

Ephesians 5:11 must have passed him by as well. It says: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

There hasn’t been too much by way of reproof in the past few days as it has been announced that Rev Charles McMullen will charge headlong down the road to Dublin to metaphorically kiss ‘Papa’s’ feet.

In a pathetic sop to any Presbyterians who are rightly dismayed and outraged at such a move, and as a scanty fig leaf to cover the nakedness of their compromise, Rev Charles McMullen and the Presbyterian Church’s clerk, Rev Trevor Gribben, have mentioned “theological differences”.

What are these theological differences? They haven’t mentioned them.

Could it be because they are so vast that it would highlight how disgraceful and traitorous their decision is?

While we have on various occasions on this page highlighted the major differences, though far from exhaustively, we will quickly run through a few.

Rome teaches of a holding cell between heaven and hell called Purgatory. You can search from now until Christ’s return, should you live to see it, but you’ll never find that in the Bible.

Rome teaches of prayer to Mary and to saints of its choosing. The Bible teaches of prayer to God alone (1 Timothy 2:5).

Rome teaches the blasphemy of the Mass, whereby they sacrifice Christ again and again in every chapel in the world every day of the year. The Bible teaches that His sacrifice was once for all (Hebrews 10:11-12).

Rome denies salvation by faith alone, instead pronouncing its anathema, or curses, on any who teach or hold to that view. The Bible teaches salvation by faith alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

There are many more issues we could dwell on, but that is surely sufficient to demonstrate the utter corruption of the anti-Christian Roman Catholic system.

Despite that, Rev Charles McMullen will attend Dublin Castle this Saturday, 25 August for a reception to be attended by Pope Francis and the Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, at which it is understood that the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin, will introduce the Presbyterian Moderator to the Pope himself.

After that, Rev Charles McMullen and his wife Barbara will attend a concert at Croke Park, at the invitation of Archbishop Eamon Martin. The Pope will be the chief guest at the concert.

Isn’t that all just lovely?

Rev Charles McMullen is certainly taken with the whole notion, as he himself said last week.

“As a church we recognise this Papal visit would bring great joy to our Roman Catholic neighbours and friends, and it was something we wanted to welcome.

“I am pleased our church has been able to accept the invitation to the reception and I am looking forward to it.

“Should there be an opportunity to meet Pope Francis I would very much welcome that in the context of building good relations.”

The Word of the Lord through Isaiah would be very applicable in the context of Rev Charles McMullen “looking forward” to meeting the Pope.

Isaiah 59:7-8 says: “Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.”

Of course, “peace” is a big part of the pretext for such flagrant disregard of God’s Word, as evidenced by Rev Charles McMullen’s weasel words for excusing his betrayal of Protestantism when he says his consorting with the Papacy should be viewed “in the context of building good relations”.

Rev Charles McMullen is seeking to be on friendly terms with the Pope, a servant of the devil responsible for overseeing the damning of untold millions to an eternity in hell.

James 4:4 says: “…know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”

Given that Rev Charles McMullen’s conduct is a grievous betrayal of his Protestant heritage, of the Westminster Confession of Faith and, above all else, God’s Word, one would hope there was an uproarious outcry from those Presbyterian clergy who would hold a more traditional line.

However, such hopes would prove to be unfounded, as was evidenced by the statement of Rev Trevor Gribben, who referred to the tepid protests of the sparse voices of concern on the General Council.

“We are a large Church and there will be people who believe sincerely that this would be a step too far, on theological grounds.

“A small number of people on our General Council made this point, but did so graciously.”

There was no fearless denunciation of sin, there was no earnest contention for the faith, just a lily-livered aside.

Has any member of the General Council publicly proclaimed their disgust at the move and articulated why the Bible considers consorting with the man they officially call “that Antichrist” to be repugnant? We are not aware of any and are happy for anyone to inform us of any member who has done so.

On Saturday, there will be so many members of the great and the good of Irish society, so-called, both north and south, but God will not be part of that crowd.

Rev Charles McMullen and any other clerical traitor would do well to keep that in mind.
