Proverbs 27:20: “Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”
The Church of Ireland’s Dean of Clogher and Enniskillen rector, Rev Kenneth Hall, has an insatiable appetite for ecumenical compromise with Romanists.
At almost every turn, there he is pictured and partaking in yet another ecumenical service, smiling alongside some emissary of Papal deceit.
He took his latest opportunity a couple of weeks ago as he engaged in an ecumenical service to celebrate the 100th anniversary of an agricultural show.
It would appear that Rev Kenneth Hall just can’t help himself.
If there is an opportunity to betray the Bible, the 39 Articles of the Anglican faith, both of which he is supposed to uphold, and to reject his Protestant heritage, then he’ll be there, often ensuring there’s someone with a camera present to capture him grinning like a Cheshire cat next to some old deceiver of a Papist priest.
By his own admission, Rev Kenneth Hall has devoted his ministry to abandoning the truth of the gospel and instead chooses mean compromise with Rome, an anti-Christian system which knows only how to lead its adherents to hell.
We recently highlighted his comments in a sermon in which he said he would continue to work “tirelessly and endlessly” with Romish priests in his pursuit of unity.
He also proudly stated this courting of Rome was the very basis of his ministry, saying: “Everywhere I have moved to since my clerical life began… I have sought to do likewise. My message has not changed…”
Not only that, he is joined at the hip to a leading Romanist in the Fermanagh area, ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly, with whom he is very much an ecumenical partner in crime.
He remains his bosom buddy, despite ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly acting as the Romanist mouthpiece who wrung his hands as he rejected permission for a memorial to the victims of the Romanist IRA bombing of those paying their respects on Remembrance Sunday 1987.
The reason he had the power to reject it? Because the bomb which claimed the lives of 13 Protestants was planted in Roman Catholic Church property. Rev Kenneth Hall was utterly silent on that.
Rev Kenneth Hall, a few months ago, held a service in his church honouring a native of Enniskillen, John Sullivan, who was born a Protestant but became a Jesuit priest and is now in the process of being sainted by the Pope.
And now he has taken part in yet another ecumenical service, this time to mark the 100th anniversary of the Clogher Valley Show in County Tyrone.
It was held on the Sunday prior to the agricultural show, which itself took place at the end of July.
He was joined on the occasion by ‘Father’ Noel McGahan, the Papist priest in Clogher, and the ‘Rev’ Olivia Downey, a female ‘minister’ recently appointed to the Clogher Group of Parishes. They are pictured in our below image, with ‘Father’ Noel McGahan on the far left, next to Rev Kenneth Hall, with ‘Rev’ Olivia Downey second right. The other individual appears to be an official at the show.
The gathering was apparently “a thanksgiving for everything that has taken place and [been] accomplished by the Clogher Valley Agricultural Society during the past 100 years”.
Quite why the priest had to be in attendance when this was clearly a Church of Ireland initiative is anyone’s guess.
We will remind Rev Kenneth Hall and indeed ‘Rev’ Olivia Downey of what their 39 Articles have to say. In ‘Rev’ Olivia Downey’s case, she will have presumably recently reaffirmed them, having just taken up her post in the springtime.
Article VI has this to say regarding the “Sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures for Salvation”: “Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation: so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed as an article of the Faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation.”
Rome teaches that ‘Sacred Tradition’ is just as important as the Bible and reject that crucial article of faith. Where does Rev Kenneth Hall stand on that?
Article XI speaks of the “Justification of Man”. It says: “We are accounted righteous before God, only for the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by Faith, and not for our own works or deservings.”
Rome teaches that we are justified by our works, despite Ephesians 2:8-9 clearly demonstrating that is not the case. Those verses say: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Rome says it is of works, God says it isn’t. Who do you believe? Who does Rev Kenneth Hall believe?
In Article XIX, speaking of “The Church”, it says: “As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria and Antioch, have erred, so also the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.”
The Church of Ireland’s own supposedly governing principles say that Rome has erred both in matters of faith and ceremony, yet Rev Kenneth Hall is cuddling up with an errant church.
Colossians 2:8 advises us to “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Rev Kenneth Hall is both associating with and therefore as a minister helping propagate “vain deceit” which is “not after Christ”.
Article XXII speaks “Of Purgatory”. It says: “The Romish Doctrine concerning Purgatory, Pardons, Worshipping and Adoration, as well of Images as of Relics, and also Invocation of Saints, is a fond thing, vainly invented, and grounded upon no warranty of Scripture, but rather repugnant to the Word of God.”
The 39 Articles, which Rev Kenneth Hall claimed to subscribe to when he began to make a living from the ministry, say that Purgatory, images, relics and invocation of saints have no Scriptural warrant and, further than that, they are “repugnant to the Word of God”.
We referred earlier to Rev Kenneth Hall hosting a service honouring a man being sainted by the Pope, yet the invocation of saints is “repugnant”. So why does Rev Kenneth Hall assist in something so repugnant? When he has publicly vowed that these things are repugnant, why is he associating so enthusiastically with them?
We have reminded Rev Kenneth Hall of what the 39 Articles say, now let’s remind him what the Bible has to say.
2 Corinthians 6:17: “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you”.
Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
Jude 1:3: “…ye should earnestly contend for the faith…”
Rev Kenneth Hall is in open and brazen disobedience of these commands. Were he contending for the faith he would not be on such friendly terms with the propagators of Papal deceit.
If you attend a church where ecumenical activities are going on, please take heed to these words from 2 Peter 2:1-2: “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”
The false teachers will bring destruction upon themselves. Do you want them to bring destruction upon you as well?
If you know anyone with any connection to the Church of Ireland in Enniskillen, we would earnestly encourage you to share this with them or if you know anyone whose church is engaging in ecumenical conduct, please share this with them to alert them to the danger they are being put in by ministers who are betraying their souls.
And if you are reading this and are swept up in the ecumenical folly in our land, won’t you please turn away from it and place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
Acts 16:31: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”.
