More Protestant ministers to preach at blasphemous Clonard Monastery Novena mass services

Last year, we highlighted four ministers in what were once Protestant churches preaching at the annual Novena mass services in Clonard Monastery in the overwhelmingly Roman Catholic west Belfast area.

This is an affront to the Word of God as the mass is a blasphemous event, which purports to again and again offer up Christ as a sacrifice for sin.

The Bible is crystal clear that Jesus gave Himself once for all and His work in this matter is finished, as He declared Himself as He gave up the ghost on the cross at Calvary.

We are told this in Hebrews 7:26-27: “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

Again, we are reminded in Hebrews 9:24-28: “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

1 Peter 3:18 tells us: “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit”.

And Romans 6:9-10 says: “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.”

The Roman Catholic mass is incompatible with Scripture, including also the claim that the wafer and the wine offered up is not just symbolic, but it is magically transformed by the priest into the actual body and blood of Christ.

To take part in such a blasphemy is to, at the very least, serve to tacitly endorse such a ritual.

Last year, two Methodist clerics, Rev Johnston McMaster and Rev John Alderdice, Presbyterian ‘minister’ ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban and Church of Ireland ‘minister’ ‘Rev’ Tracey McRoberts all took part on the ecumenical day of the novena, which, as the name may suggest, lasts for nine days.

Despite the restrictions imposed on church services this year as a result.of the coronavirus pandemic, Clonard Monastery is determined to continue its blasphemous ‘worship’ this year and the 2020 edition of the novena will run from Friday, 19 to Saturday, 27 June.

It will be streamed live from Clonard and from another Romanist venue in County Limerick in the Republic of Ireland as an “all-island” venture.

And two more allegedly Protestant clerics will be taking part in this blasphemous novena on the Monday, 22 June on what is called “the Ecumenical Day”.

They are ‘Rev’ Janet Unsworth (pictured, top), who is principal of Edgehill Theological College, the training ground for the Methodist Church’s ministers locally, and Presbyterian minister Rev Jonathan Frazer (pictured, below). He is the minister of Garnerville Presbyterian Church in east Belfast.

‘Rev’ Janet Unsworth (1 Timothy 2:12) has previously came to the attention of ‘Protestant Revival’ in her role as Vice-Chair, now Chair of the Board of Governors at Methodist College in Belfast. The school had been considering implementing a uniform for pupils who consider themselves to be transgender and we had been calling on the five Methodist ministers on the school’s Board of Governors to stand against the catering for ungodliness. We were not encouraged by the responses from the quintet which came back.

Rev Jonathan Frazer, meanwhile, is not an individual of whom we had previously been aware, but he has certainly made some interesting comments in relation to his denomination’s perfectly reasonable moves at its General Assembly in 2018 to forbid full communicant membership to those living in openly homosexual relationships and barring the baptism of children in the care of a same-sex couple.

Quoted in a BBC article from late 2018, Rev Jonathan Frazer said: “I adhere to the laws of the Presbyterian Church and those decisions have already been made, but I still feel a sense of hurt and sadness over how it was all carried out and the results of it.

“Unfortunately for many people, their lasting memory of the church will be of those decisions, but I don’t feel I would be doing my job if I didn’t speak up and show people that there are some within the church who are still thinking about these issues.”

Certainly not a ringing endorsement of the votes made by the church.

Rev Jonathan Frazer is also quoted saying this in the Belfast Telegraph: “This year’s vote on same-sex relationships was passed by a majority, but not all, of the Presbyterian Church. That’s important for people to remember.

“There was a lot of debate, sincere people on both sides who felt they were upholding their biblical principles. But I think you can say we got distracted by our doctrines. We forgot about people. In the church we’re not called to think about doctrine, we’re called to think about people.”

Again, he equivocates over the decisions made but adds another very concerning comment when he says: “In the church we’re not called to think about doctrine”.

I beg your pardon? Are we not? Where does he get this idea from?

The importance of sound doctrine is considered very important in God’s Word.

Paul, who we would say has a rather greater ministerial legacy than Rev Jonathan Frazer, exhorts Timothy, a young preacher, to concern himself greatly with doctrine, warning that many will show their ungodliness by rejecting “sound doctrine”.

2 Timothy 4:2-4 says: “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; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

The importance of understanding doctrine is stressed by God through the prophet Isaiah, while He also points out that such knowledge, properly applied and taken to heart, is “refreshing” and will “cause the weary to rest”.

Isaiah 28:9-12 says: “Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.”

It is a child, indeed so undeveloped a child as one which has only ceased being fed at their mother’s breast, to which God compares those who are ignorant of his doctrine.

Yet, unlike a typical child, who are sponges for new information, ideas and knowledge, they “would not hear” and is this not the attitude espoused by Rev Jonathan Frazer when he says “we’re not called to think about doctrine”.

There are numerous more Scripture passages which can clearly demonstrate this simple truth, but we believe this to be more than sufficient to demonstrate the total fallacy of Rev Jonathan Frazer’s dangerous claim.

Of course, when he unburdens himself from the requirement laid out by God specifically to concern himself with doctrine, it is not difficult to see how he ends up preparing to preach at a novena mass in just over a week’s time.

However, we would call on both ‘Rev’ Janet Unsworth and Rev Jonathan Frazer to do the right thing and cancel their involvement in this exercise of blaspheming our dear Saviour.

There is still time for them to do so and we would urge readers to either bring this article to their attention or to get in touch with either individual themselves and implore them not to take part in this grave blasphemy.

If we are to please God it will not be done by taking part in services which trample over the gospel message of Christ’s all sufficient sacrifice at Calvary.

It will rather be done, if we are first saved, by acquainting ourselves with sound doctrine so that we might know how we might please Him.

Romans 12:1-2: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Ignatius of Loyola fanboy Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson calls Jesuit priest a ‘wonderful man’

2 Timothy 4:3-4: “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; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

If, for some reason, anybody needed further evidence that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, lead pastor of the Emmanuel Church in the Lurgan and Portadown areas of County Armagh, was a Romish compromiser, he has stepped up to the plate once again to show his God-defiance.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson has declared a notable Jesuit priest from Belfast to be a “wonderful man of peace”.

‘Father’ Martin Magill has studiously carved out a niche for himself as a bit of a celebrity priest in Northern Ireland and relished his moment in the limelight last year as he pontificated from the pulpit of St Anne’s Cathedral (still, ostensibly a Protestant church) at the funeral of the, until then, utterly unknown Belfast journalist Lyra McKee, who suddenly, we were told, was actually the best up and coming journalist known to man.

She had been struck by a bullet while reporting from the scene of Irish republican rioting in Londonderry, one of the Romanist thugs striking her with one of their shots, intended for police officers.

An open lesbian, she had sought to use the Bible to justify the sodomite movement and her funeral was a very peculiar affair, bizarrely bordering on the lines of a state occasion as ecumenists and LGBT activists sought to hijack the event to advance their own nefarious causes.

One would have thought she had been shot by that republican because she was a lesbian, given the coverage which followed, as her “girlfriend” and various groups and individuals called for sodomite marriage to be introduced in Northern Ireland (still illegal at that point) as a tribute to her as efforts were made to make her some sort of sodomite martyr.

‘Father’ Martin Magill, who runs the wretched quasi-religious, quasi-political Four Corners Festival each year in Belfast alongside Presbyterian minister Rev Steve Stockman (the man who preaches the gospel according to the utterly ungodly Lady Gaga but hates the preaching of the true gospel of Jesus Christ), spied his chance to get on his ecumenical soapbox and was the preacher at the funeral.

He delivered what was lauded by the ungodly world, and plenty of ungodly ‘preachers’ as a wonderful display of “speaking truth to power” and other such self-important claptrap.

The upshot of his self-indulgent rantings was that it was absolutely critical that the Northern Ireland Assembly, pulled down by the murderers and murderer supporters of Sinn Fein in a huff, get back up and running as part of the pathetic narrative that religious and political ecumenists peddle, which is that blood will flow on the streets unless the poor little republicans are given what they want.

‘Father’ Martin Magill successfully used the occasion to firmly establish himself as the leading ecumenical practitioner of Papal priestcraft in Ulster and will dine out off it for the rest of his days.

Many God-defying pastors were falling over themselves to fawn over ‘Father’ Martin Magill, who is a Jesuit priest, that evil order set up specifically by Rome to counteract the glorious Protestant Reformation.

One such character, unsurprisingly, was Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson, and he was at it again at the start of last week to eulogise a man who has dedicated his life to propagating a false gospel of salvation by sacramental merit.

‘Father’ Martin Magill had originally posted a tweet in which he was promoting what has been called ‘The Irish Blessing’, an ecumenical recording of the hymn ‘Be Thou My Vision’ to apparently show support for healthcare workers during this Covid-19 pandemic, which was jointly organised by ‘Father’ Martin Magill and a Church of Ireland trainee minister called Philip McKinley. This is something we plan to look at in greater depth in a future post, God willing.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson then responded by saying: “Well done Fr Martin – what a wonderful man of peace in this land you are. Thank you!”

So there you have it – a Jesuit priest, a man who blasphemes Christ every day, is a “wonderful man” according to Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson.

This “wonderful man” claims to offer Christ up as a sacrifice day after day, this “wonderful man” promotes Mary worship, this “wonderful man” proclaims the lie of purgatory and this “wonderful man” exalts the Pope, who blasphemes God through the various titles he takes upon himself.

Not so wonderful really, when put in the light of Scripture.

We are told the sacrifice of Christ was once for all.

Hebrews 9:24-26 states this clearly. It says: “For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”

We are told Mary is a sinner, albeit a saved sinner, not some semi deity. In fact Mary says it of herself that she was in need of a Saviour.

Luke 1:46-47 says: “And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.”

Yet ‘Father’ Martin Magill and his church teaches to this day the lies of the mass and of worshipping Mary.

Of course, it should be little surprise to anyone that Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson would take such a stance.

He is, after all, the great Jesuit glorifier and fanboy of that most evil man, Ignatius of Loyola.

Lest anyone should forget, Ignatius of Loyola was the founder of the Jesuits, which led the charge against the Reformation and which led the centuries long murderous, barbarous Inquisition, with the backing of the Papacy.

God’s Word tells us that to hate evil is a sign of being His child, and there can be few more evil men guilty of more evil action than Ignatius of Loyola.

Psalm 97:10 says: “Ye that love the LORD, hate evil”.

And in October 2018, Alain Emerson proved he does not hate evil as he glorified that evil man, disgracefully promoting this devoted adherent to the lies of Rome to his congregation in the Emmanuel Church. Indeed, he taught those in attendance to follow the spiritual practices of that evil Mary worshipper.

You can read significant, disgraceful excerpts of his appalling deceit by reading the article we penned at the time, which you can access easily by clicking here.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson appears to be somewhat enamoured of the Romanist Jesuit order and has an affinity for sharing quotes from such on Twitter, such as Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and, just last Friday, the Jesuit trained priest Henri Nouwen, a favourite of lots of ecumenical charismatics.

Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson is held up as one of the leading lights in the modern charismatic church in Northern Ireland, he runs the 24-7 Prayer Ireland group, is invited to speak (at least in pre-lockdown times) at various other charismatic groups and has close links with ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, a senior figure at Causeway Coast Vineyard, former leader of the Evangelical Alliance in Northern Ireland and now leader of the Evangelical Alliance in the UK as a whole.

He has a certain amount of influence and is, by his actions, normalising ecumenism in the eyes of those who attend his churches and emboldening others to do the same.

Let us take a stand against such mean compromise and continue to speak out and warn others of the treacherous deceit of the gospel being carried out by men who claim to be serving God.

Isaiah 29:13: “Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men”.

Isaiah 58:1: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

Crown Jesus Ministries’ Mitch shows his support for the Pope yet again

2 Corinthians 11:13-15: “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

It really is so brazen, surely nobody can be left in any doubt of the disgraceful, ecumenical nature of the “ministry” of ‘Mitch’, (because his actual name, Keith Mitchell is nowhere near cool enough for his type of ‘church’) of the Belfast based Crown Jesus Ministries.

Yet again Mitch has blatantly, overtly, deliberately endorsed “that Antichrist”, the God blaspheming Romish Pope, on his Twitter page to his more than 3,000 followers.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday past, Keith Mitchell (sorry, ‘Mitch’), posted the following message:

“A Christian, who in these times is not a revolutionary, is no Christian”. POPE FRANCIS

The inclusion of the name of that “son of perdition” in block capitals is what Keith Mitchell (sorry, ‘Mitch’) chose to do, as if he is deliberately drawing attention to his compromise.

That is certainly how it would appear – what is the need otherwise for him to put it in block capitals?

And, to further ensure we got his message of foul ecumenical compromise, his same tweet then includes a little graphic of the same quote, again noted as being from “that Antichrist” himself.

You can see the tweet for yourself, pictured below.

The tweet attracted just a single ‘like’, though so do many of his tweets, but it is very telling to see from whom it came.

It was none other than Keith’s (sorry, Mitch’s) good old Romanist chum Ron Huntley of the Papist grouping, Divine Renovation Ministry.

We previously highlighted how Mitch disgracefully had this avowed adherent of the Roman Catholic false doctrines in his church in Belfast last October to teach his church’s members.

Ron Huntley’s group says, on its website, that one of its key priorities is to see the “power of the Holy Spirit held together by the celebration of the Eucharist”, which, for Rome, is the blasphemous mass, where Christ is blasphemously offered up again and again and again.

Does Keith Mitchell (sorry, ‘Mitch’, because Peter, Paul, Isaiah, Jeremiah and other Biblical figures were keen on giving themselves matey monikers to make themselves look cooler) agree with this blasphemous mass? If he doesn’t, why is he taking anything to do with Ron Huntley of Divine Renovation Ministry and why is he promoting the Pope on his Twitter page?

Both Rome and Biblical Christianity cannot be right and, by acting how he is, Keith Mitchell (sorry, ‘Mitch’) is clearly siding with Rome.

The Eucharist which his pals Pope Francis and Ron Huntley uphold is an outrage against our Saviour and serves purely to deny and denigrate the all-sufficient sacrifice of Christ at Calvary.

There are numerous passages which clearly outline this. We will include just two clear examples.

Romans 6:9-10 says: “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.”

Hebrews 7:24-27: “But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”

Note the latter part of the second passage clearly proves the falseness of the Romish position.

Christ “needeth not daily, to offer up sacrifice”.

What does Rome do? It offers up daily, oftentimes more than daily, sacrifice of their imagined, blasphemous version of Christ.

But Keith Mitchell (sorry, ‘Mitch’) is far too cool to worry about absolutely vital theological points like that, isn’t he?

In addition to the blasphemous mass, Rome falsely teaches of a fictional holding cell between heaven and hell called purgatory, it teaches of prayer to so-called long dead ‘saints’ and to Mary (indeed, May is a month Rome sets aside for devotion to Mary), it teaches that the Pope, Mitch’s hero, is the “vicar of Christ on earth”, among other blasphemous titles ascribed to that old deceiver, and worst of all, teaches that salvation comes through our own works, our own merit and our own earning.

That last point is absolutely crucial as it damns lost sinners to hell, poor lost sinners seeking to merit a place in heaven, something which is absolutely impossible for us to do.

God’s Word could not be clearer on this matter.

Titus 3:5-7 says: “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”

It is “not by works of righteousness which we have done”, but rather God’s “mercy” which has “saved us” who are saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9 says: “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.”

That famous passage from Ephesians is so clear and obvious that one must wonder how any could not see clearly that salvation is NOT earned, yet Rome persists in teaching their blasphemous false gospel and Keith Mitchell (sorry, ‘Mitch’) is happy to walk hand in hand with and promote the teachings of such hellish deceivers and deceptions.

As we have already stated when referring to ‘Mitch’ bringing in Romanist Ron Huntley of Divine Renovation Ministry to his church, ‘Mitch’ has a track record for such Popish pandering.

Indeed, this is not the first time he has quoted “that Antichrist” on Twitter.

Back in June last year, he did the same thing as he supported and encouraged another determined compromiser and ecumenist, Methodist minister Rev John Alderdice as the latter preached at the God-denying Romanist novena mass in Clonard Monastery in west Belfast.

Indeed, pictured above you can see Rev John Alderdice sitting, second left, as the priest blasphemously lifts the wafer above his head and claims Jesus is truly present in the wafer and in the wine.

Mitch’s response? To tell Rev John Alderdice he was “cheering him on” and quote Pope Francis extolling the so-called virtues of ‘church unity’. You can see the exchange for yourself, pictured below.

This is more than a one-off, an aberration, an errant move, this is part of a consistent pattern.

Why is ‘Mitch’ consistently cosying up with Popery? Why is he repeatedly favourably quoting the very man who denies the gospel message of salvation freely offered by grace through faith alone?

Does ‘Mitch’ himself believe that salvation comes through faith alone in Christ alone?

After all, last autumn he claimed that 44 young, impressionable people, were saved from a lost eternity in hell by… taking a booklet.

That is most certainly not the gospel message, despite what ‘Mitch’ may try to say and despite his pathetic efforts to equivocate after the event following a very gentle enquiry by a Baptist lady who felt the need to then tell us we should remove our article based on his risible response.

Indeed, the same lady has also contacted us of late to complain about our mentioning the compromise which is very much visible in the public ministry of Newtownbreda Baptist Church, led by Pastor Trevor Ramsey (pictured, below).

However, Newtownbreda Baptist Church is one of four churches, along with UT Belfast, Orangefield Presbyterian Church and CFC Belfast, which have forged a very close link with Crown Jesus Ministries over the past period of time.

This includes running events together, such as the very aptly named (for an ecumenical venture) Just One conference last year, headline by Canon J John, who was an active part of the charismatic deceits of the Toronto Blessing movement and launching a prayer guide together, in which they have favourably quoted US heretic Rick Warren.

In fact Pastor Trevor Ramsey appeared on a recent webinar with ‘Mitch’ organised by the Ecumenical Alliance, sorry, Evangelical Alliance, of which both churches are members, and stated he was “happy” to be doing so.

Is he happy to be forging such close links with a man who is repeatedly quoting the Pope of Rome in a favourable light?

Is this something which sits comfortably with him and the people who attend his church?

Surely fellowshipping with a man who is “cheering” other ministers on as they take part in a blasphemous mass service and is repeatedly quoting the Pope is something a discerning preacher would cross the road to stay clear of?

Seemingly, such things are not a concern for Pastor Trevor Ramsey.

Dear reader, please raise your voice in objection to this terrible compromise and, if you are involved with Crown Jesus Ministries would you please separate yourself from it.

If you are involved with Newtownbreda Baptist Church, UT Belfast, CFC Belfast or Orangefield Presbyterian Church would you not separate yourself and urge those you know connected with these churches to do likewise.

Such links with a man promoting Popery and unity with Rome are not pleasing to God.

Let us strive to ever be more like Him, to follow Biblical separation and stand foursquare for Christ in this evil day of compromise and apostasy.

Romans 16:17-18: “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

Church of Ireland using Roman Catholic hermit to inspire aspiring ministers

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

The above headline is certainly not a collection of words we had ever been expecting to put together, yet here we are.

Many legacy Protestant churches use many different ways to promote links with Rome in an attempt to blur any remaining, faded lines between them and the blasphemous Papacy.

You can very simply promote joint services with them, such as St Patrick’s Parish Church in Ballymoney, County Antrim and their minister Rev Andrew Sweeney, you can have your culinary skills (a most important sign of a faithful minister) spoken of warmly, a la Canon David Skuce, or you can be appointed leader of the most prominent ecumenical organisation in Northern Ireland, such as Presbyterian minister Rev Alex Wimberly of the Corrymeela Community.

There are other tactics which are employed, but the Church of Ireland Diocese of Armagh is using a most bizarre way to show it has handed itself over to mean Romish compromise.

On their website, they are quoting a man who was a Roman Catholic hermit as a means of motivating those who have an interest in entering the ministry in the Church of Ireland.

This outrageous apostasy is present on their website by first visiting the ‘Ministry’ section and then clicking on to the page, ‘Fellowship of Vocation’.

On this page, after explaining the process by which they choose ministers to go forward for official training, the writer of the text on the website then quotes Charles de Foucauld (pictured, top) by means of inspiring would-be ministers to pursue a career in the, supposedly, Christian ministry. You can see it for yourself in the series of three screenshots, below.

Beneath the quote, would-be ministers are invited to contact a Rev Bill Adair, who is apparently the Diocesan Director of Ordinands. He is also the minister of St Columba’s Parish Church in Portadown, County Armagh, but whether he is behind the message or not we cannot be sure.

Regardless, what we can be sure of is that it is outrageous to be quoting a Mary worshipping, Christ denying Romanist priest as some sort of inspiration to go into the ministry.

Charles de Foucauld was a priest who joined the Trappist order, an offshoot of the Cistercians, living from 1858 to 1916.

He is exalted and lifted up by the Roman Catholic Church and is in the process of being ‘sainted’ by them.

His beatification process saw him re-titled as the “Blessed ‘Father’ Charles de Foucauld” by Pope Benedict XVI in 2005.

Surely all of that would automatically preclude him from being considered an admirable example to follow by any true believer, yet here we have the Church of Ireland seeking to use him as a means of inspiring aspiring ministers.

This is but typical of the mean ecumenical compromise which has permeated virtually every aspect of the Church of Ireland.

It is also somewhat duplicitous to name Charles de Foucauld (though, as you may have noticed, they have spelled his name incorrectly) as the man behind the quote they share without giving any background as to who he is.

This is a common trick we have seen employed by numerous compromisers seeking to gently promote an individual who any true believer ought to reject outright.

It would be highly likely that 99% of people had never heard tell of this hermit who is exalted by Rome, but the writer just plonks his name in there, knowing rightly people won’t know who he is and hoping nobody bothers to check.

What is wrong with using a quote from any number of Protestant reformers or preachers?

There is Luther, Calvin, Knox, you could cite George Whitefield, CH Spurgeon, the Wesleys, John Wycliffe, DL Moody, the list goes on.

All of these men are far better known (and a much better example) than a French Romanist hermit who buried himself away in the north African countryside as some sort of mistaken attempt at devotion to God.

Or, better still, how about using a quote from God’s Word to inspire aspiring ministers?

Matthew 9:36-38 would be pretty apt, given the subject matter. It says: “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”

They could also use Romans 10:13-15, which says: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”

These are wonderful passages from God’s inerrant and inspired Word, but they just don’t cut it for the Church of Ireland Diocese of Armagh, who favour Papist deceivers over the Almighty.

Indeed, the very notion of the ascetic lifestyle adopted by Charles de Foucauld is unscriptural.

Nowhere in the Bible are we told to deliberately cause ourselves pain.

We cannot do anything to earn our salvation, Titus 3:5 reminds us that our salvation is “not by works of righteousness which we have done” and Ephesians 2:9 states clearly that salvation is “not of works”.

Of course, a desire to live a holy and sanctified life is a key sign of being a child of God, but such self-mortification is not a sign of holiness and sanctification.

1 Timothy 6:17 shows us that God “giveth us richly all things to enjoy”.

1 Timothy 4:1-4 clearly condemns two of the chief superstitions and practices of the Romanist religion, the forced celibacy of its priests and the forbidding of eating certain meats at certain times. They are, in fact, described as “doctrines of devils”.

The passage says: “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving”.

It is wholly misguided of the Church of Ireland Diocese of Armagh to be recommending a devotee of Rome as an inspiration to men (and, contrary to God’s Word, see 1 Timothy 2:12, women) interested in entering the ministry.

We would call on the Church of Ireland Diocese of Armagh to remove this at once and indeed apologise for a quote from a man who upheld the false, pagan religion of Rome being used to encourage men into its ministry.

Rome denies that Christ’s sacrifice at Calvary was all-sufficient, it denies that we are saved by faith alone, it claims the blasphemous Pope is God on earth, it claims we can pray to Mary to gain favour with God, it practices the blasphemous mass where they sacrifice Jesus again and again, it venerates idols and statues and it teaches of a fictional holding cell between heaven and hell they call purgatory.

These teachings of Rome are all diametrically opposed to the clear words of Scripture and have the effect of corrupting true religion and sound doctrine to the point where it bears no resemblance to the Word of God.

The Church of Ireland’s own supposedly governing principles, the 39 Articles, has strong words on many false Romish doctrines, yet its ministers repeatedly and determinedly ignore them and the Bible in their efforts to cuddle up with Rome.

Article 22 covers a number of these false teachings of Rome. 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.”

Articles 28 and 31 have further strong words of condemnation of Romish deceit.

Article 28 speaks of the Lord’s Supper, warning against its pollution into the mass ceremony of Rome.

“Transubstantiation (or the change of the substance of Bread and Wine) in the Supper of the Lord, cannot be proved by holy Writ; but is repugnant to the plain words of Scripture, overthroweth the nature of a Sacrament, and hath given occasion to many superstitions.

“The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper was not by Christ’s ordinance reserved, carried about, lifted up, or worshipped.”

Article 31 speaks of the all-availing once for all sacrifice of Christ at Calvary.

It says: “The Offering of Christ once made is that perfect redemption, propitiation, and satisfaction, for all the sins of the whole world, both original and actual; and there is none other satisfaction for sin, but that alone. Wherefore the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it was commonly said, that the Priest did offer Christ for the quick and the dead, to have remission of pain or guilt, were blasphemous fables, and dangerous deceits.”

Oh that the Church of Ireland today would consider the practices of Rome to be “blasphemous fables and dangerous deceits”.

Instead, a man who adhered to all the blasphemies listed above is held up as somebody admirable to the church’s future clergy.

May God move in revival once more in our land, and may we dedicate ourselves to prayer that it might come to pass.

2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Jesuit glorifier Alain Emerson preaches charismatic deceit in another Romanist venue

1 John 4:1: “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

The ecumenical charismatic movement is big business in Northern Ireland (and numerous other places) at present.

Having seen the growth in the ‘fellowship’ type churches, gatherings in other denominations have decided to jump on board the charismatic bandwagon and get a slice of the unbiblical action.

Clanging ‘Christian’ rock music, casual attire, shallow ‘positive vibes’ theology and no requirement for personal sanctification (the ‘God’ they preach is just so chuffed you are doing him a favour by claiming to be his follower) helps draw in the punters, which in turn drives up the revenue and, hey presto, prosperity is a sign that God is working. Isn’t it?

Examples of the more traditional denominational churches who have hopped on board with the modern charismatic movement, which is rooted in the outrageous excesses of the Toronto Blessing, are the like of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church (led by crowd-surfing, ‘LGBT Christian’ affirming, Jesuit priest promoting Rev John Dickinson), Willowfield Parish Church (until recently led by new Archbishop of Down and Dromore and ecumenical New Wine compromiser Rev David McClay, pictured, below) and Newtownbreda Baptist Church (led by Evangelical Alliance supporting, comedy performer hosting, charismatic fellowshipping Pastor Trevor Ramsey, with an honourable mention to his assistant, Pastor Tim Robinson).

Another one of these is 1st Presbyterian Church in Ballynahinch, County Down, led by Rev Dario Leal, a native of Chile.

He is up to his neck in the charismatic tomfoolery which passes for Christianity in many places these days.

The church he currently has charge over runs the leaven-filled Alpha Course, whose overall leader is the Rome lover Nicky Gumbel, and his church’s Clerk of Session is a woman called Jill McKee (pictured, below, 1 Timothy 2:12), who was one of the demonstrators at a ludicrous, unscriptural ‘prophetic art’ event at CFC Belfast (good friends of Pastor Trevor Ramsey and his Newtownbreda Baptist Church) last October.

And, in 2016, Dario Leal ran a conference headlined by out and out heretic and leader in the foul Toronto Blessing (the movement which popularised writhing on the floor, laughing manically and barking like a dog as a manifestation of the ‘spirit’, though certainly not the Holy Spirit), Randy Clark.

It was held in 1st Bangor Presbyterian Church, whose current ‘minister’ is a woman (1 Timothy 2:12) called ‘Rev’ Mairisine Stanfield, who, according to the faithful servant of God, Cecil Andrews of Take Heed Ministries, is the former ‘minister’ of 1st Presbyterian Church, Ballynahinch, Rev Dario Leal’s current stomping ground.

Details given on the “Healing Prayer at Northdown CFC” facebook page of the event are included in the screenshot below. We are not sure if “Northdown CFC” is connected with CFC Belfast but would be keen for anyone with information in that regard to get in contact with us.

And it was Rev Dario Leal’s church which was up to its neck in a 24-7 Prayer week in Ballynahinch a little while back, running from Sunday, 1 to Sunday, 8 March.

A group called ‘Grace Fellowship’ were also strongly involved in the event. They are a breakaway group from Ballynahinch Baptist Church, once again according to Cecil Andrews at Take Heed Ministries. You can read his article on this event by clicking here.

And they brought in Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson (pictured, top), one of the leading figures in the wretched ecumenical deceit spreading through our land.

He spoke on the opening night (start as you mean to go on!) in a Romanist primary school in the town called St Colman’s.

Alain Emerson has a track record for speaking in Romanist venues, having preached during the ecumenical talking shop known as the Four Corners Festival in a Roman Catholic chapel in 2018. You can see him, below, doing just that.

And here he is again, showing his lack of concern for any form of Biblical faithfulness.

For five straight days during the 24-7 Prayer week, Lectio Divina sessions were held, a Papist blasphemy. Alain Emerson’s co-pastor at his Emmanuel Church in the Lurgan and Portadown areas of County Armagh, Dave Wylie, told attendees to take part in this ungodly practice.

It really is a sad mess and we would once again issue the call to anyone involved with 1st Presbyterian Church in Ballynahinch, 1st Presbyterian Church in Bangor, Grace Fellowship in Ballynahinch and Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area to separate from these fellowships.

We are reminded in James 1:27 that “pure religion and undefiled before God is this… to keep himself unspotted from the world”. 

These churches are covered in the stains of the world.

Separate yourself even today.

‘LGBT Christian’ endorsing Rev John Dickinson adds his support to Jesuit priest

Jeremiah 29:8-9: “For thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the Lord.”

Rev John Dickinson, minister of Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, seems rather keen to let his Twitter followers know what he is reading.

He has previously informed his nigh on 1,200 followers on Twitter that he was reading the book by so-called “LGBT Christian” Vicky Beeching and how absolutely wonderful it is.

Its unambiguous title, ‘Undivided: Coming Out, Becoming Whole, And Living Free From Shame’, can leave nobody with any doubt as to what it is about.

Rev John Dickinson’s acolytes went into overdrive with their outrage that we should dare to highlight his despicable rejection of the Word of God, with the man himself giving his support to this, liking many of the abusive messages we received on facebook.

Such is the problem with many of these churches given over to charismatism, such as Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, the adherents are placing their faith in the preacher, not in God, so any challenge to the amiable man up the front who they think is infallible will not be met kindly, regardless of whether the Bible shows them to be in the wrong.

It is a form of ‘Protestant’ Popery.

And it is rather apt that Rev John Dickinson is now advocating one of the most well-known advocates of Popery on his Twitter page.

‘Father’ James Martin SJ is the author of the book to which Rev John Dickinson has been giving his endorsement.

Entitled ‘Jesus: A Pilgrimage’, the front cover, which Rev John Dickinson has photographed on his lap (pictured, below), gives the name of the author with the letters SJ, which means Society of Jesus, after it.

This ‘Father’ James Martin is a Jesuit, that order founded by Ignatius of Loyola specifically to fight back AGAINST the Protestant Reformation and which led the centuries long murderous, torturous Inquisition.

Just in case anyone didn’t know what the letters SJ indicated, below his name on the front cover is written “Bestselling author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything”, though of course Rev John Dickinson will be well aware of what SJ stands for. He just doesn’t care.

The post received a number of ‘likes’ on Twitter, including from an individual who attends his church and led the abuse of this page on facebook at the time of the Vicky Beeching affair.

It was also ‘liked’ by another Presbyterian minister, Rev Niall Lockhart, minister of Ballyhenry Presbyterian Church, located close to Rev John Dickinson’s domain of clerical compromise and deceit.

And, surprise, surprise, the great glorifier of Ignatius of Loyola, the utter Christ rejecter Alain Emerson of Emmanuel Church in the Lurgan and Portadown areas of County Armagh, was among those to ‘like’ the post.

Birds of a feather and all that.

The Saviour gives us notice of some of the evidences of false prophets in the gospels.

He says in Matthew 7:15-20: “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”

There can be no doubt Rev John Dickinson is bringing forth evil, corrupt fruit.

He is expressing his support for sodomy in the church and for Romanism, and it is difficult to think of two more evil perversions of the Word of God than those two things.

The Bible is crystal clear on both of these matters.

Rev John Dickinson said on his Twitter page, by way of stating he was reading a new book, having completed his Popish one, that “after a journey in the footsteps of Jesus in the book I finished today…” he had moved on to another one.

What exactly does a Papist priest know about walking in the footsteps of Jesus? And what does Rev John Dickinson know about walking in the footsteps of Jesus if he thinks a Papist priest can show him?

This Jesuit deceiver, James Martin, denies the Lord Jesus Christ.

He denies that Christ’s sacrifice for sin at Calvary was once for all.

He denies that Christ’s sacrifice cleanses those who believe on Him from all sin.

He denies that Christ is the only mediator between God and man (see 1 Timothy 2:5 for a crystal clear lead on this).

He, and all other Papist priests, are liars and deceivers.

The book of Hebrews is a glorious exposition and explanation of true Christian doctrine and deals at length with the abolition of the priesthood which Rome blasphemously upholds its own corrupted version of to this day.

Hebrews 10:1-2, 9-12: “For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God.”

The Romish blasphemy of the mass makes a repeated sacrifice of Jesus, yet this passage clearly shows Christ’s sacrifice was a one time occurrence.

The Apostle Paul asks the rhetorical question – “would they (the sacrifices) not have ceased to be offered?”

Had the previous sacrificial system been sufficient to wipe out all sin at once then it wouldn’t have had to be repeated.

The point of Christ’s sacrifice was that there might be an all-availing sacrifice for sin for ever. He offered “one sacrifice for sins for ever”.

Yet Rome continues with its repetitive sacrifices, continually claiming to offer up Christ, all the while Rev John Dickinson says he is being led in the footsteps of Jesus by a promoter and practitioner of this hellish lie.

What a rotten, stinking situation this is.

It is also noteworthy that this ‘Father’ James Martin is also a very vocal and prominent voice in the campaign for sodomites to be officially accepted into the Romanist priesthood in the USA (where he is from).

And, of course, as we have already referenced above, Rev John Dickinson’s views on homosexuality is much at odds with Scripture.

Not only has he toadied to Vicky Beeching, he has been a vocal critic of the Presbyterian Church’s entirely proper moves to bar full membership to open sodomites and preclude children in the care of two homosexuals being baptised, which you can read about by clicking here.

Such moves simply sanction sin, but that is what Rev John Dickinson is looking to do – sanction sin.

A true minister of God would be preaching sanctification, a running away from sin and pursuit of holiness, but he preaches the sanctioning of sin and the pursuit of ungodliness.

The Bible couldn’t make it any clearer that homosexuality is repugnant to God.

Leviticus 18:22 tells us it is an “abomination”, Romans 1:26-27 state clearly that it is “vile”, “against nature” and “unseemly”.

God’s judgment rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis for this wicked sin, which we are reminded of in Jude v 7, which 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.”

Rev John Dickinson, by endorsing this wicked notion, is seemingly happy to sit back and let people “suffer the vengeance of eternal fire” and encourage other people to believe this lie too.

Do you want that type of minister to have spiritual oversight over you? Over your friends? Over your family? Over any soul?

He is like the false prophets in the day of Jeremiah who pretended to be speaking for God.

Jeremiah’s encounter with Hananiah in Jeremiah 28 tells us of the boldness of this false teacher, who voices his lofty, positive but false prophecy “in the presence of the priests and of all the people” (verse 2) before making his grand gesture of ripping the “yoke from off the prophet Jeremiah’s neck, and brak[ing] it” (verse 10) to symbolise, so he claimed, the impending victory of the Jews over the Babylonians who threatened them.

Jeremiah warns him that “when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him”.

And he follows this up by pointing out in verse 15: “Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie.”

Rev John Dickinson is making anyone who believes him to trust in a lie, rather than the truth of God’s Word.

He is promoting Popery and sodomite affirmation in the church.

Dear reader, if you or anyone you know is involved with Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, or Carnmoney / Central, his church’s offshoot in the middle of Belfast, ran by his son, David Dickinson, won’t you separate yourself immediately and urge those you know to do likewise.

Surely you do not want to be associated with Christ rejection, with the supporting of sodomy and the promotion of the evil, false gospel of Romanism.

Obey Christ’s call to separation and come out from among such apostasy and rank rejection of the truth of the Bible.

Revelation 18:4-5: “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

Blasphemous Archbishop of Canterbury praying for the dead!

2 Samuel 12:16,18-23: “David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth. And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead? But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the Lord, and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat. Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. 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.”

This example of King David ceasing to petition God for the recovery of his child when he knew the child had died is not only an instance of common sense, but it also teaches us a clear Scriptural truth.

It is common sense because when someone dies then we know they aren’t going to get any better and the clear Scriptural truth is that after we die we go straight to heaven or hell, depending on whether we had placed our faith and trust in Christ for salvation and had our sins washed away.

David states of his child that “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me”.

There was no question in the mind of the man who we are told was a man after God’s own heart that there was no value in praying for his son once he died.

Yet the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, or more aptly the Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby, stated brazenly on his facebook page that he was doing just that – offering prayers for the dead.

On Saturday, 4 April, the old Arch-apostate posted on Facebook the following: “Tonight I am praying for those who have died. Loving God, may they know the comfort of your presence.”

Such an act is nothing but a wretched Romanist superstition with absolutely no grounding in the canon of Holy Scripture.

There is no merit in prayers for the dead. If a person is saved when they die they go to heaven and, sadly, if they aren’t saved they are lost for all eternity in that awful place called hell.

This is spelled out clearly for us again by the Saviour, who, to put it mildly, knows an awful lot more about eternity than the Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby, in Luke 16.

Recounting the story of the rich man and Lazarus, Jesus tells us in Luke 16:22-26: “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.”

The rich man woke up in hell when he died, he didn’t lie in a state of nothingness for a while, he didn’t go to purgatory as the Romish lies would say, he didn’t have a chance of getting from hell to heaven – “they which would pass from hence to you cannot, neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence”.

There is no benefit whatsoever in praying for the dead, nothing could save the rich man from his eternal destination.

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby would do well to read these passages and appreciate the blasphemy of what he is doing, and then, in sorrow and distress, cry to God for mercy and for Him to save his soul from a lost eternity like that rich man.

The second part of Arch-apostate Justin Welby’s disgraceful comment on Facebook continues the blasphemy and takes the form of a prayer, when he says: “Loving God, may they know the comfort of your presence”.

As we have previously alluded to, those who have passed from this life into eternity cannot know the comfort of God’s presence unless they were saved when they died.

If they are in God’s presence then they are assured of much, much more than just comfort.

Psalm 16:11 tells us: “Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.”

God’s presence gives us “fulness of joy”, or an abundance of joy, a complete and utter satisfaction and delight, indeed a joy that passes all earthly understanding is the reward of those who “love his appearing”.

We don’t need to pray that those who have left their mortal frames on earth and have “put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:53) would be comforted, we know they are in the presence of God, experiencing that “fulness of joy” and “pleasures for evermore”.

This is a wonderful assurance for the believer and for Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby to seek to denigrate the wonderful inheritance we have in Christ is nothing short of despicable.

Equally, it is vain and pointless to pray for those dead who have denied Christ in their life as they are in hell for evermore.

Arch-apostate of Canterbury Justin Welby says he is offering prayers for “those who have died”, he didn’t try to make any distinction, not that he should have been praying for anyone who was dead anyway.

An unsaved individual, we are told in Luke 16, is separated from the saints of God by a “great gulf”.

This gulf, we are told, is “fixed”, it cannot move, and furthermore, it is final – “neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence”.

There is no way back for the person who dies in their sins – their eternal destination is sealed, there are no second chances.

That is why, dear reader, it is so important that we are ready to die.

2 Corinthians 6:2 reminds us that “now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation”.

God tells us in Genesis 6:3 that “My spirit shall not always strive with man”.

If God is speaking to you, don’t ignore Him, He may never speak to you again.

When we die our fate is sealed and no amount of prayers from Justin Welby or any other allegedly Protestant apostate or any earnest but blinded Romanist will avail us anything.

Come to Christ today for salvation, repent of your sins, and spend all eternity in His presence, experiencing that wonderful “fulness of joy”.

Church of Ireland canon preaches at Roman Catholic Novena

Religious compromise with Rome appears to be almost compulsory in the previously Protestant Church of Ireland, certainly if you want to achieve any sort of exalted rank.

There is scarcely a bishop who isn’t on friendly terms with their Romanist counterpart, with the new Archbishop of Armagh, John McDowell, a prime example of someone completely given over to Romish compromise.

We have previously written about other recently retired bishops, including the former Archbishop of Armagh Richard Clarke, former Bishop of Derry and Raphoe Ken Good and former Bishop of Down and Dromore Harold Miller, who were ever keen to betray their own church’s 39 Articles and link arms with the promoters of the pagan falsehoods of Rome.

We have previously written about plenty of canons and archdeacons who have similarly shown their true religious colours by rejecting God’s Word and siding with the enemies of Christ, such as Canon David Skuce, now a rector in County Donegal and formerly in County Fermanagh, Canon Mark Harvey, rector in Lurgan, County Armagh and Archdeacon Stephen McBride, rector in Antrim town who previously spoke at a Romanist novena.

And that same act of apostasy was sadly committed just last month by another Church of Ireland canon, this time Canon Ian Ellis (pictured, top), rector of Rossorry Parish Church, near Enniskillen in County Fermanagh.

His actions live up to the second part of his church’s name as it is very sorry indeed.

This Canon Ian Ellis is not to be confused with the man of the same name and rank who was formerly editor of the Church of Ireland Gazette and is now a rector in Newcastle, County Down, although he too is fond of Romish compromise.

This Canon Ian Ellis was a preacher at the annual so-called “Novena of Hope” held at The Graan Monastery in County Fermanagh, although the “Novena of No Hope” would be a better name for it, given it is utterly contrary to the Word of God.

What is a Novena? It is a Roman Catholic ritual and according to the ‘Pray More Novenas’ website, “a Novena is made up of nine days of prayer and meditation, usually to ask God for special prayer requests or petitions. Novenas are often used to ask specific saints to pray for us”.

So a Novena involves the invocation of saints, despite the Bible’s teaching in 1 Timothy 2:5, which says: “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”.

Wikipedia continues and 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.”

So the Novena has the stamp of approval from the Pope, “that man of sin, and son of perdition”, the man who blasphemously sets himself up in God’s place.

Wikipedia goes on to say: “The practice of the Novena is based in early Christianity, where masses were held for nine days with devotional prayers to someone who has died.”

So the Novena has its roots in prayer for the dead, which is a reference to the Romanist lie of purgatory, an absolutely anti-Biblical construct of the Roman Catholic Church. When we die we either go straight to heaven or straight to hell. There is no in between.

Look at the rich man in Luke 16. We are told in verses 22-23: “…the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments…”

There was no in between for the rich man. He died and went straight to hell.

And the lies and deceits of Rome will take all who adhere to them there as well.

Canon Ian Ellis’ betrayal of his church’s heritage took place on Thursday, 5 March when he spoke on the topic “Hope is… Reaching out the hand of fellowship to our brothers and sisters who come from other traditions”.

And there we were thinking that hope lay in salvation which comes alone by faith alone in Jesus Christ.

We are to place our hope in the triune God.

Romans 15:13 says: “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

We are to place our hope in the word of God.

Psalm 119:114 says: “Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.”

Hope is at the root of faith in Christ.

Hebrews 11:1,3: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

That is where hope lies, not in ecumenical jollies and soft soap words designed to make the speaker and the hearers feel nice about themselves and congratulate themselves on being so wonderfully tolerant and open-minded.

Where the undiluted gospel of Christ is not preached then there is no value in it and Canon Ian Ellis could not have preached the undiluted gospel of Christ at that novena as it is an event designed to contradict the gospel of Christ.

Last summertime we highlighted the truly despicable situation whereby four different allegedly Protestant ministers spoke at the novena at Clonard Monastery, a hub of Romanist deceit in Irish republican west Belfast.

The four were ‘Rev’ Tracey McRoberts, ‘minister’ of St Matthew’s Church of Ireland on the Shankill Road in Belfast, Presbyterian ‘minister’ ‘Rev’ Cheryl Meban, who acts as the church’s chaplain at Queen’s University, Rev Johnston McMaster, Methodist minister and professor in the Irish School of Ecumenics and Rev John Alderdice, another Methodist minister, who is also Director of Ministry at Edgehill Theological College, the training school for aspiring Methodist ministers in Northern Ireland.

On recordings of the services from the novena, all four can be seen happily sitting throughout the entire mass service, watching on as the priest blasphemously lifts the wafer above his head and claims Jesus is truly present in the wafer and in the wine. Rev John Alderdice is pictured below, second from left, sitting contentedly as the blasphemous mass is offered up.

And, unless the novena at The Graan is very different from any other novenas held everywhere else, Canon Ian Ellis was happy to sit and watch our Lord Jesus Christ being offered up once again blasphemously by a God-defying Romanist priest.

We are reminded in Hebrews 10:11-12 that Christ’s sacrifice was once for all.

It says: “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God”.

The mass is an accursed blasphemy which denies the God it falsely claims to honour and Canon Ian Ellis, as a Church of Ireland minister, is outrageously doing a disservice to his most important role by sitting back and letting such blasphemies go on without raising his voice against them.

Worse still, he is encouraging those who attend and partake in the mass to continue on in their sin by giving credence to the Roman Catholic Church.

Canon Ian Ellis certainly has a track record of chumming up with Rome, as it is reported on the website of a newspaper local to his current church that, at his institution as rector there in March 2015, two senior Papists were in attendance.

One was ‘Monsignor’ Peter O’Reilly and the other was well-known Romanist priest and media personality ‘Father’ Brian D’Arcy, who formerly served in The Graan.

We will remind Canon Ian Ellis and any other compromiser within the Church of Ireland what the 28th of their 39 Articles of faith says regarding the Lord’s Supper.

It says: “Transubstantiation (or the change of the substance of Bread and Wine) in the Supper of the Lord, cannot be proved by holy Writ; but is repugnant to the plain words of Scripture, overthroweth the nature of a Sacrament, and hath given occasion to many superstitions.”

The 31st Article adds that “the sacrifices of Masses, in the which it was commonly said, that the Priest did offer Christ for the quick and the dead, to have remission of pain or guilt, were blasphemous fables, and dangerous deceits.”

How much better are the standards of their Anglican forefathers than what we see polluting pulpits throught Northern Ireland and so many other places today.

The 39 Articles call the mass a “blasphemous fable and dangerous deceit” and say the Romanist doctrine of transubstantiation is “repugnant” to the Word of God.

What a shameful situation it is to see Canon Ian Ellis engaging with such an event as this.

Once again we appeal to any involved with the Church of Ireland to separate themselves fully from this apostate denomination and urge any who are as yet unsaved to come to Christ for salvation.

Our only hope for an eternity in heaven lies not in the observance of sacraments or sacrifices, but in the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Come to him today, do not delay.

Proverbs 27:1: “Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”

Acts 4:12: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

Romanist ‘saint’ beloved by foolish Protestants revealed to be sex abuser

2 Timothy 3:2-5: “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

The Roman Catholic Church has been beset by an uncountable number of revolting sexual scandals throughout the world over the past number of years.

That most sickening of crimes of child abuse has been almost endemic within Romanism, with floods of victims having come forward across the world and some of the most senior priests in the whole rotten system implicated either as child abusers or as having covered up for child abusers.

So vast has the number of reported victims been that numerous Roman Catholic dioceses, particularly in the USA, have filed for bankruptcy in an effort to avoid being liable for enormous sums of compensation to those subjected to the vile abuse of their supposed spiritual leaders.

Those developments, ongoing in numerous areas at present, just succeed in adding financial bankruptcy to the moral and spiritual bankruptcy cancers already rife within the Roman Catholic church.

Of course, Rome may try to avoid court judgments ordering them to pay out money to the victims of the abusers they harboured, in many cases, for decades, but they cannot run from God.

2 Corinthians 5:10 reminds us of this solemn fact: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”

The actions of so many of Rome’s priests are indisputably foul and wicked and what a dreadful judgment they are heading for.

Given not only the proliferation of such priests, but also the proliferation of compromising foolish Protestant ministers all too keen to cosy up with Rome, there is always very much the risk that they can end up embarrassing themselves by fawning over a Romanist who later turns out to have some rather unseemly skeleton in his closet.

And so it would appear to be the case for those who chose to fawn over, promote and recommend Jean Vanier (pictured, top), an ardent Romanist who founded the L’Arche Community in France, an organisation set up to assist people with learning disabilities.

Now certainly we do not condemn the idea of helping those with any form of disability.

However, Jean Vanier was a committed Romanist and remained wedded to the hellish, Christ-denying doctrines of Rome to his dying day.

It was revealed just a few weeks ago in a report by the L’Arche organisation, reported on by the Washington Post, that “Vanier had coercive sexual relationships with six women during his lifetime that left the women hurt and in need of psychological therapy for years”.

The evidence appears to be rather damning, so much so that L’Arche’s executive director in the USA, Tina Bovermann, said in a letter that “we stand today on the side of those who have been harmed ”

Further damning revelations also “found that Vanier was aware of inappropriate sexual conduct by his mentor, the late Rev. Thomas Philippe, possibly as early as the 1950s,” the Washington Post report continued.

“Neither Philippe nor Vanier had sexual relationships with the adults with disabilities whom L’Arche serves, the group said.”

It was revealed that the allegations came to light last April, a month before Vanier’s death.

The article states that at that time “leaders of L’Arche hired a consulting firm to investigate two women’s reports that Vanier had been involved in inappropriate relationships with them.

“During the investigation, the consultants — who interviewed more than 30 people — learned of four more women who alleged harmful sexual relationships with Vanier.

“The women did not know one another or know about each other’s allegations, the report stated. The abuse took place between 1970 and 2005. Some of the women were single, some were married, and at least one had taken a religious vow of celibacy.”

These are the actions of a man who was described before his death last year as a “living saint” by Alpha Course leader and Church of England minister Nicky Gumbel, who said it was “an utter privilege” to have met him.

Stuart Bothwell (pictured, below), lead pastor at Lagan Valley Vineyard Church in Lisburn, County Antrim, took to twitter last year to praise him to high heaven after his death, saying: “We lost a giant today. May we never lose his vision.”

Lead pastor at Causeway Coast Vineyard, Neil Young is far from averse to quoting Jean Vanier on his Twitter page.

Regular readers may remember our previous article highlighting the Presbyterian Herald, the magazine of the Presbyterian Church, dedicating an issue to this man.

No doubt they will rather wish now that they hadn’t.

Vanier used his spiritual authority, as these women saw it, to hold sway over them, the report stated.

L’Arche’s own report says: “The relationships … are described as emotionally abusive and characterised by significant imbalances of power, whereby the alleged victims felt deprived of their free will and so the sexual activity was coerced or took place under coercive conditions.

“One victim said Vanier told her: ‘This is not us, this is Mary and Jesus. You are chosen, you are special, this is secret’.”

What an evil, blasphemous pretext this man used to engage in such vile behaviour.

Does Nicky Gumbel still consider this man a “saint”?

Does Stuart Bothwell still consider him a “giant “?

Will Neil Young continue to tweet his quotes, thus recommending him to his followers?

Will the Presbyterian Herald apologise for dedicating an issue to a man who sexually abused women?

Let us not forget, too, that Vanier was a Romanist, denying the all-sufficient death of Christ on Calvary.

We should not need reminding that Rome rejects the Bible, rejects Jesus Christ and rejects the means of salvation outlined in God’s Word.

Dear reader, please don’t do that yourself, come to Christ for salvation if you are not yet saved.

Don’t place stock in the men of this world, but rather look to Jesus for salvation.

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

Romish compromise rewarded as Right Eejit John McDowell appointed Church of Ireland Archbishop

Malachi 3:15: “And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.”

We have previously commented in other articles how it appears that the more compromised with Rome a clergyman appears to be, the more likely he is to be on course for the top, especially in the Church of Ireland.

So hand in hand is the Church of Ireland with the pagan perversion of true Christianity that is the Church of Rome that it is to be expected devoted ecumenists will be occupying the top roles.

And so it has proven as one promoter of Romish compromise has been replaced with another in the most senior post of the Church of Ireland.

Right Reverend (or Right Eejit) John McDowell (pictured, top), the current Church of Ireland Bishop of Clogher, has been appointed as the new Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, replacing Most Reverend (or Most Ecumenical) Richard Clarke (pictured, below).

The Rome compromising, Papal pandering, Apocrypha preaching dyed in the wool ecumenist has been rewarded for his clerical career of compromise by being elevated to this loftiest (and no doubt generously remunerated) of roles.

Let’s have a look at Right Eejit John McDowell’s rather inglorious CV.

He is bosom buddies with former Roman Catholic Bishop of Clogher Joseph Duffy, a man who was found to have “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse and did not remove suspected paedophile priests from the ministry”.

Despite that being the finding of a report by the Irish National Board for Safeguarding Children as far back as 2010, Right Eejit John McDowell continues to be fast friends with this Romish deceiver.

In April 2018, he was a joint guest of honour with Bishop Joseph Duffy (pictured, below) in a Church of Ireland event in a congregation in County Monaghan.

Then, in June 2018, Right Eejit John McDowell was a guest of honour at the Romanist blasphemy of the mass, a mass held to celebrate 60 years in the priesthood of that same Bishop Joseph Duffy.

Apart from the obvious disregard he showed towards true religion and God by attending such a wretched event as the mass, he was also showing complete disregard to the victims of child abuse in the Clogher diocese who might have been spared such wicked treatment had Bishop Joseph Duffy not “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”.

Surely this alone is enough to preclude Right Eejit John McDowell from being elevated to this role?

Right Eejit John McDowell is also a past President of the Irish Council of Churches and was a signatory to a letter begging “that Antichrist” the Pope to visit Northern Ireland when he made his way to the Republic of Ireland in August 2018.

Right Eejit John McDowell was also in attendance in May 2018 when a service was held in the Church of Ireland in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh to celebrate a Jesuit priest in the process of being ‘sainted’ by the Pope.

Then in that same church, St Macartin’s Cathedral, in November 2018 Right Eejit John McDowell preached from the Apocrypha during a Remebrance Day service.

And the following month, in greeting the appointment of Larry Duffy as the new Romanist Bishop of Clogher, he said he was praying for his success.

All that was just in 2018!

Indeed, he added a deal of variation to his wilful rejection of God’s Word late last year as he was in attendance at a pro-LGBT event in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen and indeed closed the meeting “with a prayer of love for our queer brothers and sisters”.

So there you have it. This is the man who is now in charge of the Church of Ireland, the second largest allegedly Protestant denomination in Ireland.

Associating with Romanist priests who “failed to prevent clerical sex abuse”, taking every opportunity he can to compromise with the evil false religion of Rome and caving into the campaign for the acceptance of sodomy in the church, this is the trail left by Right Eejit John McDowell.

Are you impressed?

Do you believe he ought to be a spiritual leader?

Do you want him to be your spiritual leader?

Do you believe God smiles upon Roght Eejit John McDowell as a very senior and very public proclaimed representative of Him?

We trust the answer to each question is very clear indeed and we trust that, if you are saved, you will “come out from among them and be ye separate” from the Church of Ireland.

If you are as yet unsaved, won’t you place your faith and trust in Christ, the one Who gave Himself on the cross at Calvary that we might be saved.

1 Peter 2:24-25: “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.”

Christ is a Bishop to be much admired and followed after, Right Eejit John McDowell is a bishop to be rejected.

Choose the gospel of Christ, not the false gospel of Right Eejit John McDowell and his ilk.
