Newtownbreda Baptist endorses US heretic Rick Warren

1 Peter 5:8: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”.

Around this time last year, we at ‘Protestant Revival’ highlighted Newtownbreda Baptist Church’s membership of the ungodly Evangelical Alliance.

By its affiliation with this group, which boasts members such as Kings Church in Bangor, County Down, whose pastor, Glen Mitchell, denies the Biblical account of creation and Emmanuel Church in the Craigavon area of County Armagh, whose lead pastor Alain Emerson has glorified Ignatius of Loyola, the evil leader of that dreadful Romanist order of the Jesuits, Newtownbreda Baptist Church has yoked itself with fellowships which are determinedly at odds with God and His Word.

Newtownbreda Baptist Church is one of five Baptist churches in Northern Ireland who have tied themselves with this Biblically illiterate organisation.

We warned at that time that this demonstrated that a church simply being part of a denomination which tends to be held in high regard is not a sure indicator that the church concerned is a safe one to attend.

Most would consider a Baptist church to be a sound fellowship simply by virtue of being called ‘Baptist’, but Newtownbreda Baptist Church appears to be determined to make sure nobody remains under that illusion.

Let’s hope that everyone reading this does indeed rid themselves of any such illusions.

Not only yoked with the Evangelical Alliance, whose new UK Director is hardened ecumenist ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, Newtownbreda Baptist Church has embarked on a wrong-headed partnership with four other churches in Belfast.

Among them are Willowfield Parish Church, led by ecumenical compromiser and new Church of Ireland Bishop of Connor David McClay, typical charismatic fellowships CFC (Christian Fellowship Church) Belfast, who hosted a ludicrous ‘prophetic art’ event back in the autumn, and UT Belfast.

The final member of this highly questionable quintet is the easy-believist Crown Jesus Ministries, led by Keith Mitchell (pictured, below), although, in this pathetic, matey age of church, he likes to be known only by the moniker of ‘Mitch’.

He was one of the keynote speakers at the charismatic delusion fest that is the Open Skies festival over the summer and claimed that people were saved by taking a booklet at an event he ran at a Scripture Union event in a school.

These five churches held a joint event last summer entitled ‘Just One’, headlined by the man who decided he would re-write the Ten Commandments because God’s way of communicating them just doesn’t cut it any more, Church of England cleric Canon J John.

And now this same questionable quintet have joined forces to put together a prayer journal which will see you through to April Fool’s Day, rather fittingly, called ‘Awake’.

There are numerous major issues with this prayer guide, which, for any who may seek to try to distract from the manifold problems with it, we have read in depth.

Among these problems are an endorsement of notorious US megachurch preacher and rank heretic Rick Warren (pictured, top), mingling with the ungodly 24-7 Prayer organisation and support for the false prophets of the Rome loving and charismatic deceits propagating Causeway Coast Vineyard.

The document gets off to an inauspicious start as within the first full page of text we are already treading on to dangerous ground.

This is what it says: “In 2010, as the last decade began, Pastor Rick Warren said he believed whatever happened in the next 10 years could determine the state of our culture for the next 100 years.

“When you consider what has happened culturally over the last 10 years, significant changes have occurred in our moral and spiritual landscape, and it seems these changes will indeed impact our culture greatly for many years to come.

“Therefore, we as 5 churches in the great city of Belfast, feel compelled to pray for the first 100 days of a new decade, that God would bring a mighty awakening in our souls, city and land, impacting our land for 100’s of years.”

So Rick Warren’s comments are acting as an inspiration to the people behind this prayer journal.

Notice that no explanation is given as to who he is, it is assumed that everyone would know who he is.

Certainly, if anyone knows who he is, and anyone putting this together certainly would do, as would all the churches signing this document off in their church’s name, that ought to instantly have them running for the hills away from this.

In 2015, Rick Warren paired up with the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Boston, Cardinal Sean O’Malley to speak at a keynote session celebrating the Pope’s visit to the USA as part of the World Meeting of Families event. This is the same Vatican-run gathering which came to Dublin in 2018 and saw Evangelical Alliance leader Peter Lynas fall over himself to support professing Christians scuttling off to the Republic of Ireland to cower before “that Antichrist”.

Of course, none of the alleged Protestants who went to Dublin gave a keynote address welcoming the Pope alongside a Romanist Cardinal, so Rick Warren has gone several steps further in his wicked fellowshipping with Rome.

More than that, the previous year, Rick Warren signed a statement in which he called the Pope “Holy Father”, a blasphemous title the Pope has taken upon himself.

The letter said: “We rejoice that the Holy Father has captured the world’s attention and so much good will for the Christian faith! You have written so powerfully, Holy Father, of the importance of a new evangelisation within the church.”

Not only is he a signatory of a letter calling the Pope by this blasphemous name, but Rick Warren is also writing about him in the most admiring of terms, which is clearly a reprehensible thing to do.

It is also stated in an article on the Pulpit and Pen website that Rick Warren referred to the Pope as “Our Pope”.

Rick Warren is also featured in a YouTube video from the Catholic News Service in which he states that “if you love Jesus we’re on the same team”.

He says: “We have far more in common that what divides us. When you talk about Pentecostals, charismatics, evangelicals, fundamentalists, Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians and on and on and on, well they all would say ‘we believe in the Trinity, we believe in the Bible, we believe in the Resurrection, we believe salvation is through Jesus Christ’.

“These are the big issues.

“Sometimes Protestants think that Catholics worship Mary like she’s another God. That’s not exactly Catholic doctrine. And people say, ‘what are the saints all about? Why are you praying to the saints?’ And when you understand what they mean by what they are saying, there’s a whole lot more commonality.

“Now there’s still real differences, no doubt about that, but the most important thing is, if you love Jesus we’re on the same team.”

You can see the video for yourself by clicking here.

What a big ecumenical love-in Rick Warren is promoting, bringing in charismatics (which is essentially what all five of these churches are, including Newtownbreda Baptist), evangelicals, fundamentalists, Catholics and so on.

There are so many problems with what Rick Warren says in the above quote, this article would be far too long if we addressed them all, but we will briefly seek to address just a couple of them.

Firstly, Rick Warren tries to claim that all who profess the name of Christian aren’t so different, citing belief in the Bible and salvation through Jesus Christ, among others.

Let us remind Rick Warren, Crown Jesus Ministries, UT Belfast, CFC Belfast, Willowfield Parish Church and Newtownbreda Baptist Church what Rome believes on numerous key issues.

They deny that salvation comes through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone, instead pronouncing their curse on any who believes such.

Canon 9 from the Council of Trent, still the authoritative document of Roman Catholic doctrine, says this: “If any one saith, that by faith alone the impious is justified; in such wise as to mean, that nothing else is required to co-operate in order to the obtaining the grace of Justification, and that it is not in any way necessary, that he be prepared and disposed by the movement of his own will; let him be anathema.”

The Bible says in 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.”

Rome also states that any who claim good works are simply evidence of a person’s salvation, rather than part of their meriting of salvation, are to be cursed.

Canon 24 says: “If any one saith, that the justice received is not preserved and also increased before God through good works; but that the said works are merely the fruits and signs of Justification obtained, but not a cause of the increase thereof; let him be anathema.”

The Bible says in Galatians 3:1-3: “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?”

We could go on, but trust this point is clearly made that Rome does not share the Christian view on salvation but rather propagates a devilish deceit utterly contrary to God’s Word.

Rick Warren also seeks to fend off any concerns over Mariolatry and idolatry of so-called ‘saints’ in his deceitful diatribe, but just mentions them and brushes them off.

He says it is “not exactly” the case that Rome worships Mary, which is hardly a clear statement, nor does he say how they don’t.

Given that Rome offers up scores of blasphemous titles to Mary bestowing honour which can only rightly be ascribed to our Saviour, it is clear she is worshipped by Rome.

These titles include, but are far from limited to Co-Redemptrix, Gate of Heaven, Mother of Divine Grace and Refuge of Sinners.

Rome worships Mary, despite the despicable efforts of Rick Warren to deflect or distract from that fact.

Further cementing the five churches’ endorsement of Rick Warren is the fact that Pastor Tim Robinson (pictured, below), the assistant to Pastor Trevor Ramsey of Newtownbreda Baptist Church, recites word for word the text we reproduced early in this article which directly refers to Rick Warren in a video on their church Facebook page promoting this prayer journal. Mitch makes an appearance in it too.

Newtownbreda Baptist Church has just this week been hosting a 24-7 Prayer week, an organisation headed up locally by Jesuit exalter Alain ‘Ecumenical’ Emerson and whose founder is ABBA prayer dancing supporter Pete Greig.

They will host similar events in February and March, with each of the other churches taking their turn at it as well.

In the latter part of this prayer journal, ‘stories of awakening’ are shared with the reader.

They throw in the 1859 Revival to give the document some sort of air of orthodoxy, while also including stories about Causeway Coast Vineyard.

In it they claim that 3,500 people have been saved as a result of that fellowship, though there has certainly been no reports of revival coming out of that area.

The 1859 Revival was headline news, it swept the country with remarkable stories of people listening for hours to the preaching of the gospel, such was their desire to learn more about God.

Sadly, Causeway Coast Vineyard is not God honouring.

Its former lead pastor, Alan Scott, infamously stated he was “all in” with the Pope and made light of that outrageous blasphemy of Mary worship, while current lead pastor Neil Young is fond of quoting Romanists such as Jean Vanier on social media.

Peter Lynas, mentioned above, is another leading figure at Causeway Coast Vineyard, who on at least two occasions last year alone welcomed in the heretical Bethel Supernatural Ministries to their church.

While some of the intentions behind this prayer journal may well be good, like the Alpha Course, there is more than its fair share of leaven within it and, as we are told in Galatians 5:9: “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”

There is more than a little leaven in this, so just think how much more problematic ‘Awake’ is.

Indeed, it is incumbent upon us if we are saved to ourselves be very much alert and awake to such subtle spirits of error.

1 Corinthians 16:13: “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.”

Proverbs 4:23: “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”

Evangelical Alliance rewarding Popery – Peter Lynas promoted to top UK role

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.”

This is a verse we quoted when veteran Church of Ireland ecumenical cleric Canon David Skuce became Chancellor David Skuce, promoted by that old Romish compromiser the Right Eejit John McDowell, Bishop of Clogher.

What exactly it means for David Skuce’s lofty title now he has moved off to Donegal in the Diocese of Derry and Raphoe we are not entirely sure, but we believed that verse was apt for him and we feel it is equally apt now for Peter Lynas, another who has seen his Romish compromise rewarded by professional elevation, though both may seek to claim it is vocational elevation.

For Peter Lynas, a man whose actions are so synonymous with rank compromise with Romanism that he meritoriously received the moniker of ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas, has been promoted to one of the most senior roles in the Evangelical Alliance.

He was already the Evangelical Alliance Director in Northern Ireland but now he is occupying the same position over the whole of the United Kingdom.

It would certainly appear that religious compromise and ecumenical betrayal of your Protestant heritage is a sure way to the top in many allegedly Chrustian organisations.

Among Peter Lynas’ most transparently God defying actions was his criticism of any who opposed supposed Christians running down to Dublin to meet “that Antichrist”, the Pope, his eulogising of ecumenical evangelist Billy Graham and his describing of a Romanist monk and God-defying ‘Protestant’ ecumenists as “incredible company”.

And he also decried any who would have the temerity to challenge him for his God-defiance in compromising with the hellish teachings and practices of Popery as being guilty of harbouring “residual bigotry”.

There are plenty more instances of his demonstrating his utter unsuitability for having any type of spiritual oversight over anyone, such as suggesting that churches introduce “trans” accessible toilets, and you can see some more of them by clicking here.

It shows something is very much out of place with so many who claim to be serving God when they are happy to be represented by such a character.

Did Jesus mingle with false religion? Did He condemn those who came to Him by faith alone? Did He describe as “incredible company” those who teach a false gospel of works-based righteousness?

The answer to all of these is a clear and resounding “no”.

Jesus dined with sinners and spoke with those practising false religion, but He didn’t encourage them on in their sin.

When Jesus spoke with the Samaritan woman at the well, He didn’t sugar coat things with her, He made it clear her current relationship was sinful (see John 4:16-18).

Jesus then made it clear to her that her religion was nothing but a confused, mongrel mess of a religion.

John 4:22-24: “Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

Rome cannot worship God in spirit and in truth, for it blasphemes the Holy Spirit and is built on a lie, yet Peter Lynas is delighted for professing Christians to cower before the leader of that devilish system.

The religion referred to by Christ is that same mongrel mess created after the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel as detailed in 2 Kings 17:25-29,32-33, which says: “And so it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, that they feared not the Lord: therefore the Lord sent lions among them, which slew some of them. Wherefore they spake to the king of Assyria, saying, The nations which thou hast removed, and placed in the cities of Samaria, know not the manner of the God of the land: therefore he hath sent lions among them, and, behold, they slay them, because they know not the manner of the God of the land. Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land. Then one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria came and dwelt in Beth-el, and taught them how they should fear the Lord. Howbeit every nation made gods of their own, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities wherein they dwelt. So they feared the Lord, and made unto themselves of the lowest of them priests of the high places, which sacrificed for them in the houses of the high places. They feared the Lord, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence.”

The descendants of these ungodly forefathers then tried to disrupt the work of rebuilding the temple, doing so under the banner of being co-religionists with the true Jews.

Ezra 4:1-2: “Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the Lord God of Israel; Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esar-haddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.”

The Jewish leaders were wise to these ecumenical advances, unlike many foolish Protestants today, and give us a fine example of separation from religious error.

Note the Scriptures call such characters “the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin”.

When their ecumenical advances are rejected, their true colours quickly shine through.

Ezra 4:3-5 says: “But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the Lord God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us. Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building, And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.”

So it is with Rome, we must not fellowship or work alongside false religion, but Peter Lynas throws himself in headlong with Rome.

Jesus never once told people they were saved by their works, but rather by their faith.

Mark 10:51-52 says: “And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.”

Luke 7:50 says: “And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.”

Rome teaches we are saved by our works and by fulfilling its sacraments, and indeed pronounces its curse on any who teach salvation is by faith alone in Christ alone.

This is despite Ephesians 2:8-9, which 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.”

So why does the supposedly ‘Evangelical’ Alliance leader Peter Lynas not speak out against Rome, but rather call characters involved in it “incredible company”?

Did Christ proclaim that the false teachers of His day were “incredible company”?

This is what He said in Matthew 23:13: “But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.”

He continued in verse 33, saying: “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

Jesus wasn’t mincing His words, was He?

Any true follower of Jesus, and you will know them by their works, will refuse to mingle with false religion, will refuse to praise those who deny the truth of the gospel and will unashamedly speak out against religious error.

As Jesus pointed out, this is a matter of heaven or hell, a matter of life or death.

Those following false religion, such as those dear souls within the Roman Catholic Church, are having the door to heaven effectively bolted in front of them by their false teachers, who, Christ warns, are themselves in grave peril.

He asks them, “how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

Peter Lynas continually cosies up with a church whose priests shut up the doors of heaven to their adherents and goes so far as to condemn those who point out that this is unscriptural as bigots.

Do not be deceived into following his example, regardless of the lofty position he currently occupies.

If you are not saved, ask yourself the same question posed by Jesus around 2,000 years ago – “how can ye escape the damnation of hell?”

There is but one way – through repentance of sins and believing in Christ for salvation.

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

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

We must be saved – won’t you to come to Christ for salvation even today?

John 6:37: “… him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”

Hardening your neck and continuing fellowship with Rome – Ballymoney Church of Ireland

This time last year we highlighted the Romish compromise at large within the Church of Ireland in the town of Ballymoney, County Antrim.

At that point St Patrick’s Parish Church in Ballymoney hosted what was described as an “inter-denominational” Christmas carol service alongside Our Lady and St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in the town.

We highlighted on that occasion the clear reasons why such an event should be consciously avoided by any professing Christian, not least due to the abhorrent veneration of Mary which is a central characteristic of the Roman church and its false doctrine of salvation by sacramental merit.

These are, or certainly ought to be, insurmountable obstacles to sharing in worship with the Roman Catholic Church.

However, not so, clearly, for St Patrick’s Church of Ireland in Ballymoney and its minister Rev Andrew Sweeney (pictured, top).

Last year they hosted part of the carol service festivities and this year they went along to the home of Romanism in their town to take part in what is presumably the annual carol service.

A note in the Roman Catholic parish bulletin for the town, under the heading ‘Carols Together’, states: “Once again the festive season begins with Christians from the Ballymoney Church of Ireland, Methodist and Presbyterian congregations coming together with us to sing carols. This year’s event takes place on Monday, 2nd December and it begins at Our Lady and St Patrick’s at 7pm.”

So there you have it, not just the Church of Ireland in Ballymoney is given over to fellowship with the blasphemies of Rome, but all three of the mainstream so-called Protestant churches in Ulster.

The minister of Ballymoney Methodist Church is Rev Stephen Woods, who appears to be a man given to ecumenical compromise with Rome.

A report on the Londonderry Sentinel website from during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2017 states that he was in attendance at what was described as an ecumenical service in Loreto College in Coleraine, County Londonderry, a Roman Catholic school, not so far from Ballymoney, along with a Romanist priest.

As for the Presbyterian Church, there appears to be two in Ballymoney, First Presbyterian Church and Trinity Presbyterian Church.

We cannot be sure which, or perhaps, if both were taking part, so we will not name the ministers in either church lest one or other should be a faithful servant of God in this matter and repudiate all religious fellowshipping with the evil Romish church.

Of course, if they have such a view, they ought to have long since followed the Biblical command to be separate (2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

One wonders what the alleged Protestant attendees made of the pagan idolatry they were surrounded by on Monday night past, with images of Mary and Jesus around them and no doubt various other items which are forbidden in God’s Word.

The Second Commandment is very clear on that, though of course Rome conveniently ditches the Second Commandment from its version of the Bible.

Exodus 20:4-6 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.”

What do the like of Rev Andrew Sweeney and Rev Stephen Woods think when they look around them at these monuments to disobedience and Christ rejection in a church named after Mary (Our Lady is one of the ludicrous names Rome ascribes to her)?

Do they congratulate themselves on what great fellows they are for chumming up with the Roman Catholics, that ultimate test of decency (in the eyes of the ecumenist) in Northern Ireland?

Do they have any hint of uneasiness at being surrounded by idolatry and paganism which rejects the Christ they claim they represent?

God’s Word clearly states that Rev Andrew Sweeney and Rev Stephen Woods are making themselves as guilty as the priests of Rome who teach their false gospel which damns its poor deluded adherents to hell.

2 John 1:9-11: “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

After we highlighted Rev Andrew Sweeney’s ecumenical betrayal of his Protestant heritage last year, he was most affronted.

After stomping his feet, he has decided to do the same again this year, hardening his neck and persisting in his disobeying of God.

We will remind him and any other minister persisting in engaging in Christ-dishonouring religious events of what the Bible has to say.

Proverbs 29:1 says: “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.”

Oh that ministers would think so much more deeply about what it is they are doing and what it is they are risking when they fellowship with Rome.

Of course, in his complaints, Rev Andrew Sweeney failed to give a Scriptural reason for his fellowship with Rome, which to this day pronounces its curse on any who believes the precious Scriptural truth of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

The reason for that, of course, is that there is none.

Some may foolishly, and mischievously, offer up the “love thy neighbour” line, apparently a silver bullet to quell any dissent to their ecumenical conduct.

However, it is not love to flatter someone into hell, which is what any compromising Protestant minister does when he fellowships with Rome.

The Roman Catholic Church wouldn’t want anything to do with them if they were saying their doctrines are erroneous and dangerous.

Therefore compromise is essential, any such minister must be a “dumb dog” (Isaiah 56:10).

Don’t be misled, dear reader, by any dumb dog of a minister but rather take your stand for Christ, reject fellowship with a church which denies our Saviour and, unlike so many ministers polluting pulpits today, open your mouth wide and follow the command of Isaiah 58:1, which says: “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.”

Saved by taking a booklet – the shoddy ‘salvation’ of Mitch and Crown Jesus Ministries

Ezekiel 33:7-9: “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.”

On numerous occasions we have highlighted the easy-believist movement at large in many churches in our land, particularly prevalent in charismatic / Pentecostal type gatherings.

For many of these churches, simply stating that you believe there is a God, attending whichever charismatic, seeker-friendly fellowship is all the rage at the time and saying you want to do things for God is enough to have you classified as being saved (a word being increasingly abused by the charismatic movement).

Indeed, were all the people truly saved at all these meetings ran by charismatics then we would be living in a time of revival. Alas, we are not.

However, rarely is the nakedness of such easy-believist hyperbole exposed so clearly and admitted so openly as by the man known by the matey moniker of Mitch of Crown Jesus Ministries in Belfast.

Rather excitingly, we discovered following his recent appearance in Alf McCreary’s ‘What I Believe’ series with religious figures each Saturday in the Belfast Telegraph (which, with a few exceptions, might have been better titled ‘Heretic of the Week’), that good old Mitch’s real name is Keith Mitchell. Well worth the purchasing price of the paper alone!

Mitch took to Twitter during the week to highlight the shameful depths that so many church leaders go to in an effort to make it seem like they are bringing so many people into the fold of Christ.

He claimed that 44 pupils were saved at a Scripture Union event he spoke at by… taking a booklet.

That’s right, 44 young people were saved by sticking their hand out and accepting a booklet he handed to them.

Well, if it were that easy we would be getting on the main street of every town in Northern Ireland and prising people’s hands open to get them to take a booklet off us.

This is what he said on Twitter (which you can see for yourself, pictured, below):

“The Gospel still works.
44 pupils took booklets as their way of saying YES to Jesus.”

That might be their way of saying yes to Jesus, or perhaps to phrase it better, Keith’s (aka Mitch’s) way of saying people say yes to Jesus, but it’s not the way the Bible says we are to come to Jesus.

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.”

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

1 John 1:7-9 says: “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

There are countless other examples we could give but that surely offers a flavour of the way by which we are saved.

Ephesians 2:8 says we are saved by grace through faith, not by taking a booklet.

Romans 10:10 says that by our mouth “confession is made unto salvation”, not by our hand reception of a booklet is made unto salvation.

1 John 1:9 says we can be cleansed of all unrighteousness by confessing our sins to God, not that we can be cleansed by taking a booklet off Keith (aka Mitch) or any other easy-believist.

Keith’s (aka Mitch’s) doctrine of salvation is not to be found anywhere in the Bible but is rather a figment of his own imagination.

The passage at the top of this article speaks of how the blood of the unsaved is on the hand of the watchman who fails to warn them of the danger they are in.

If Keith (aka Mitch) is preaching that accepting a (presumably) religious pamphlet makes you fit for heaven, then he is most definitely not speaking to warn the wicked from his way.

To do such to young people, who are generally more impressionable and easily influenced, makes it all the more reprehensible.

Of course, Keith’s (aka Mitch’s) previous form means we should not be too surprised when we see him propagating a false gospel.

Only last month we highlighted his disgraceful promotion of another false gospel, that of Romanism.

He brought in a Ron Huntley of Divine Renovation Ministry to spread his false message.

And over the summer he was one of the headline speakers at the charismatic Open Skies festival where the ungodly prayer brainwashing technique of ‘sozo’ was taught.

This is a man who is as those warned against in Ephesians 4:14, which says: “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”.

Separation from Keith (aka Mitch) and Crown Jesus Ministries ought to be practised by all discerning believers.

We have previously faithfully warned Newtownbreda Baptist Church against its association with Crown Jesus Ministries and Keith (aka Mitch).

Will Newtownbreda Baptist Church and its minister, Pastor Trevor Ramsey, heed this warning and disassociate themselves from a church whose leader preaches salvation comes from accepting a booklet?

We hope and pray that they and he will do just that and we pray that all who hold the Word of God dear in our land will do likewise and be unafraid and unashamed to take their stand for Christ in this wicked day and generation.

Jeremiah 6:13-14: “For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.”

Crown Jesus Ministries’ Mitch brings Romanism into his church

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

The great ecumenical lie and deceit continues to be a blight on the religious landscape of Ulster as so many church leaders refuse to be separated from falsehood.

Indeed, more than refusing to be separated from falsehood, they enthusiastically support associating with it and encourage others to do so too.

And that is exactly what is happening at the allegedly evangelical Crown Jesus Ministries in Belfast.

Led by the self-proclaimed evangelist, known only by the matey moniker of Mitch, Crown Jesus Ministries is very much an example of a common or garden variety shallow charismatic fellowship, where posting inspirational quotes online and raising your hands in the air to a ‘Christian’ rock track are the acid tests of godliness.

Don’t worry about whether your practices tally up with Scripture, that is dreadfully old-fashioned and, gasp, judgmental.

Concerns over following the Bible safely discarded (for now, Ecclesiastes 8:11-13), Mitch of Crown Jesus Ministries is proudly trumpeting an event his church will be hosting this Monday afternoon, from 2-4pm.

He will be bringing in to his church, and recommending him as someone admirable and worthy of emulation, a man called Ron Huntley (pictured, below) of Divine Renovation Ministry.

Probably one of your first questions when you hear these names is, what is Divine Renovation Ministry?

Well, this is how they describe themselves on their own website.

They say: “Divine Renovation was birthed out of a real experience of renewal. Fr. James Mallon along with the team at Saint Benedict Parish in Halifax, Canada transformed their parish into a vibrant community of missionary disciples.”

And how do they do this?

“We believe that there are three keys to parish renewal: the primacy of evangelization, the best of leadership principles, and the power of the Holy Spirit held together by the celebration of the Eucharist.”

So it is a Romanist movement aimed at freshening up the age profile of the Roman Catholic Church.

And one of the keys, as they see it, is to see the “power of the Holy Spirit held together by the celebration of the Eucharist”.

The Roman Catholic Eucharist, or the Mass, is a blasphemy.

Rome claims, each time they hold the Mass, they are sacrificing Christ again and again and again and that the bread and wine literally becomes the body and blood of Christ.

Leaving aside what it makes us if we eat the body and blood of another, this is simply a perversion of what the Scripture teaches.

We are told in no uncertain terms that Christ’s sacrifice was once for sin for ever. There is no repeat, no continuation, it has been done.

Hebrews 10:10-14: “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; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.”

There you go – we are “sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all”, Christ “offered one sacrifice for sins for ever” and “by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified”.

This is crystal clear stuff.

Where is Christ now? He is “sat down on the right hand of God”.

He is not being repeatedly or continuously offered as a sacrifice for sin by some Romish priest.

That priesthood was abolished, even as the text above states when it says “every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins”.

What a glorious passage this is and what a comprehensive debunking of the lies and deceits of Rome surrounding their perverted Eucharist.

Paul, as the author of Hebrews, was crystal clear on this.

So, too, most inconveniently for the Romanists, was Peter, who they falsely claim was their first Pope, a blasphemous position that Peter would have despised and which any true believer ought to hate as well.

1 Peter 3:18 says: “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”.

Yet this blasphemy is a central tenet of the work being carried out by Divine Renovation Ministry, who supposed evangelical Mitch of Crown Jesus Ministries is trumpeting as a great and encouraging example to follow.

He ought to be ashamed of himself.

Ron Huntley is one of the leading figures in this Romanist deceit, and he is also a leading proponent of the leaven-filled Alpha Course. The very fact Rome embraces the Alpha Course really tells you all you need to know about it.

In promoting the appearance of Ron Huntley at Crown Jesus Ministries, Mitch said this on his Twitter page (also pictured, below): “We are thrilled to have Ron Huntley from Divine Renovation Ministry with us on Monday, 21st October at Crown Jesus. Ron will be with us all the way from Canada to share his experience of a Catholic Ministry with a heart for developing missional parishes.”

Of course, “Catholic” may give some people a warning but it could equally be used in the actual meaning of the word, which means “all-embracing”, and may be used, grammatically correctly, by any church really.

That is why the term Roman Catholic is useful to help make it clear what we are talking about when we discuss what is generally known as Catholicism.

Regardless of whether Mitch is trying to obscure the “Catholic” aspect or not, he is quite simply promoting a man and organisation who are in open rebellion against God.

Sadly, this is not the first time that Mitch has chosen Romish compromise over faithfulness to God’s Word.

Indeed, when Methodist minister Rev John Alderdice (pictured, above) engaged in his truly despicable ecumenical betrayal of the gospel by preaching at the Clonard Monastery Novena in June (which you can read about by clicking here) and bringing attention to it on his Twitter page, who was quick to comment and cheer him on?

Crown Jesus Ministries’ Mitch, of course.

After asking Rev John Alderdice (pictured, below as the blasphemous Mass is offered) how he got on, with a praying emoji beside his comment, the Methodist compromiser said it was “incredible”.

The response from Mitch? He said he was “cheering you on bro” before quoting “that Antichrist”, the Pope.

The quote was: “Diversity is not a threat to church unity. The Holy Spirit, sent by the Father and the Son, transforms our hearts and enables us to enter into the perfect communion of the blessed Trinity, where all things find their unity.”

Mitch ended his comment with #PopeFrancis. You can see it, pictured below.

So there you go – Mitch is promoting the Pope’s sinful utterances and supporting ecumenical fellowship with those who are espousing hellish doctrines.

Those hellish doctrines, of course, include the blasphemous Mass we have already referenced above, the lie of purgatory, the sinful titles taken upon himself by the Pope, the worship of Mary and prayers to saints and for the dead, as well as, worst of all, its absolute and total denial of the precious doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone.

Crown Jesus Ministries, just yesterday (Friday), hosted an event entitled ‘Evangelists Gathering 2019’, with two guest speakers.

The first was David Legge, a formerly traditional preacher who has, for whatever sad reason, descended into the charismatic, easy-believist deceit movement in Ulster, whose antics you can read about by clicking here.

The second was Pastor Tim Robinson (pictured, above) of a church which seems to keep popping up in God-dishonouring events and alongside God-dishonouring characters.

That church is Newtownbreda Baptist Church, based in east Belfast.

Its lead minister is Pastor Trevor Ramsey, a big pal of ‘Papist’ Peter Lynas and enthusiastic member of the Evangelical Alliance.

Pastor Trevor Ramsey (pictured, below) has also invited in a comedian to Newtownbreda Baptist Church in an attempt to laugh people into heaven and promoted a venture called ‘Just One’, headlined by ‘intoxicated’ evangelist Canon J John.

A host of churches took part in that venture, including ‘prophetic art’ promoting CFC Belfast and, of course Mitch’s Crown Jesus Ministries.

We are forced to ask the question yet again of Pastor Trevor Ramsey and Newtownbreda Baptist Church – are they supporters of ecumenical compromise with Rome?

Previously Pastor Trevor Ramsey has claimed he isn’t, but actions speak louder than words and his church is repeatedly linking up with Crown Jesus Ministries and Mitch, a man who is continually promoting and supporting ecumenical fellowship with Rome.

It would certainly appear to be a situation of trying to have his cake and eat it.

Matthew 6:24 warns: “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Which is it for Newtownbreda Baptist Church and Pastor Trevor Ramsey?

Is prioritising faithfulness to God’s Word his priority, or is fellowshipping with churches bringing shame to the church of Christ his main objective?

It cannot be both.

We would encourage anyone reading this to share this article widely to ensure these characters are challenged and questioned for their continually damaging the cause of Christ in this land.

And we would urge separation from Crown Jesus Ministries, Newtownbreda Baptist Church and the Evangelical Alliance, as well as any meeting led by David Legge.

In this increasingly sinful age, where a lax attitude has swept through so much of the professing church, we need to be ever-vigilant and ever-ready to speak out against falsehood and error.

1 Peter 5:8: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”.

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.”

A sorry harvest – ‘Rev’ Lorraine Capper preaches in Romanist chapel

Hosea 8:7: “For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: it hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal: if so be it yield, the strangers shall swallow it up.”

“Sowing the wind” could easily be the description of a sad event which took place at the end of September in a rural townland just over the border in County Monaghan.

An ecumenical harvest service was held in a Romanist chapel on Friday, 27 September in St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, Glennan, a small townland between Emyvale and Glaslough, just across the border into the Republic of Ireland.

The preacher for the occasion was a Church of Ireland ‘minister’, a Rev Lorraine Capper.

She is presently the ‘minister’ of a grouped parish in the area, being appointed to lead at St Salvator Parish Church, Donagh in County Fermanagh, St Sillian Parish Church, Tyholland and St Muadhan Parish Church, Errigal Truagh, both in County Monaghan.

Apart from the obvious fact that she ought not to be a ‘minister’, as 1 Timothy 2:12 clearly outlines, ‘Rev’ Lorraine Capper ought not to have been there at all.

To be in St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, Glennan, or indeed to be in any house of Papist worship, is to reject the Bible.

We are told in 2 Corinthians 6:17 that we are to “come out from among them, and be ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing”.

Rome is undoubtedly an unclean thing, in fact it strives to make a virtue of its uncleanness and encourages its adherents to lay up piles of filthy rags to produce to Christ when it comes to the day of judgement.

Isaiah 64:6 tells us that all of our own works and our own efforts to be righteous in of ourselves are nothing but “filthy rags” in the eyes of Christ.

It says: “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”

Despite the fact that “our righteousnesses are as filthy rags”, Rome teaches its followers to keep piling them up, telling them they can earn a place in heaven.

The Catholic Catechism states that all manner of things other than faith alone in Christ alone gets us to heaven.

It says that “baptism is the first and chief sacrament of forgiveness of sins” (paragraph 977) and that “baptism is necessary for salvation for those to whom the Gospel has been proclaimed”.

So Rome teaches that baptism is something we can do to attain salvation.

Not only that, they say our good works through observance of the Ten Commandments merits us a place in heaven.

The Roman Catholic Catechism says that “all men may attain salvation through faith, Baptism and the observance of the Commandments”.

We cannot observe the Ten Commandments properly, it is impossible to meet the requirements of the Commandments, that is why we need the Grace and mercy of Christ for salvation.

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

Not only does Rome say all these extra things are necessary for salvation, it also pronounces its curse on those who believe faith alone is sufficient for salvation.

The Council of Trent, still the authoritative document of Roman Catholic Church teaching, says in Canon 14: “If any one saith, that man is truly absolved from his sins and justified, because he assuredly believed himself absolved and justified; or, that no one is truly justified but he who believes himself justified; and that, by this faith alone, absolution and justification are effected; let him be anathema”.

“Faith alone” is “anathema” to the Roman Catholic Church.

Yet the Bible teaches we are saved by faith alone and not by our good works, so-called.

Galatians 2:16 says: “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.”

There is no salvation through the works of the law, we are told here.

But what does Rome say? It says you “may attain salvation through the observance of the Commandments”.

Yet there was ‘Rev’ Lorraine Capper leading an ecumenical harvest service, as it was described on the Church of Ireland Diocese of Clogher’s website, in a church set up specifically to teach a false gospel and deny the all-sufficient death of Christ on Calvary.

‘Rev’ Lorraine Capper serves only to do spiritual damage to all those who attended that service.

Not only is ‘Rev’ Lorraine Capper endorsing the false teachings of Romanism by being there, which means the Roman Catholic faithful in attendance go unwarned about the false teachings of their church, but she is also causing so-called Protestants who attended that service to think there is nothing wrong with mixing with false religion.

Furthermore, while any person bearing the title of minister ought to be not only preaching the true gospel, they ought also to condemn the false gospel others are teaching.

A Romanist priest is teaching a false gospel of salvation by good works and sacramental merit, and ‘Rev’ Lorraine Capper is offending God by encouraging that Romanist priest on in his false teaching.

What a shameful situation that is.

‘Rev’ Lorraine Capper was most assuredly “sowing the wind” and she, too, will “reap the whirlwind”, as will all those who follow her compromising ways.

No good fruit will come of it, but rather this service attempts to make a mockery of God and His Word.

However, we have a wonderful assurance in Galatians 6:7 that “God is not mocked”.

The verse continues, though, and says that “whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”.

As we are in the harvest season, what seed are you sowing in your life? Are you mocking God, as it were, by defying Him and His offer of salvation by His free grace?

Have you came to Christ for forgiveness, for salvation?

To be saved, you do not need to be a fully paid-up member of a church, you do not have to follow a set of man-made rules, you need only to repent of your sins and call on Chirist for salvation.

Romans 10:13: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

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

Great ‘evangelical’ Bishop Harold Miller praised for being ‘unswerving ecumenist’ by his Archbishop

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.”

There is a bizarre perception which appears to have built up that Bishop Harold Miller, the recently retired Church of Ireland Bishop of Down and Dromore, is a true ‘evangelical’.

His opposition to same-sex marriage and attendance at the supposedly conservative Anglican movement, GAFCON (Global Anglican Future Conference), seems to have been enough to see him carve out an ill-deserved reputation as an ‘evangelical’.

It would appear that by simply saying sodomites should not marry and babies ought not to be massacred in the womb you obtain such a reputation.

Certainly, it is good that anyone should hold to these views (though any Anglican cleric opposed to sodomite marriage would probably be in need of some smelling salts to revive them were anyone to use the Biblical word, ‘sodomite’ in their presence) but all it proves is they aren’t a complete reprobate.

This is a general observation we made back in January when highlighting Bishop Harold Miller’s disgraceful addressing of a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity service in Bangor.

And further evidence, were it needed, of his utterly unscriptural and dreadfully misjudged compromise with Rome has been offered in the hearty tributes paid to him by his Archbishop, the Most Ecumenical (though he, presumably, prefers Most Reverend) Richard Clarke.

Paying tribute in a statement, which is on the Church of Ireland website, Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke (pictured, above) said: “I would thank him for his wonderful contribution to the life of the Church of Ireland, both in his priestly ministry, and as Bishop of Down and Dromore over the past 22 and a half years.

“Bishop Harold has never “held back”, whether in terms of commitment, energy, enthusiasm or creativity.

“A fine liturgist and an unswerving ecumenist, he has given great service to the Church of Ireland, and for this we must indeed thank God.”

So there you go, the great ‘evangelical’ Bishop Harold Miller is in fact, as vouched for by his senior colleague, an “unswerving ecumenist”.

Certainly, given he himself is an experienced and determined compromiser with the pagan corruption of true Christianity that is Rome, Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke would know what an ecumenist looks like when he sees one.

Further evidence of this “unswerving” ecumenism can actually be seen by the second most recent post on Bishop Harold Miller’s Twitter page from 13 August, in which he has retweeted a post by the Benedictine Monks based in Rostrevor, County Down.

A brief scroll further down his Twitter page shows that on 26 March this year he congratulated a Papist monk, Mark Ephrem-Nolan, on becoming the leader of that same order of monks in Rostrevor, describing him as a “great friend and Christian brother”. The tweet is pictured, below.

How can a Romanist monk be described by any true evangelical as their “Christian brother”?

Rome and its adherents deny the Christian gospel message of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone which the Bible teaches.

It denies that the blood of Christ is all-sufficient for salvation. This is a totally unChristian religion.

So if Bishop Harold Miller considers a Romanist monk his spiritual “brother”, one must wonder what he truly believes.

He is certainly not being faithful to God’s Word in so doing and, given evangelicals are supposed to emphasise the crucial role of Scripture, he is very clearly showing himself to be anything but an evangelical.

A true evangelical would act the evangelist when confronted with someone like Mark Ephrem-Nolan.

Agents of Rome who teach its false doctrines of salvation by works, Purgatory, Mary worship, prayers to saints, idolatry and prayers for the dead, among many others, need to be saved, they need to be evangelised.

By calling Mark Ephrem-Nolan a “Christian brother”, Bishop Harold Miller is saying that such people do not need to be evangelised.

And that, dear reader, is a Christ- dishonouring disgrace.

Bishop Harold Miller has chosen to flatter the likes of Mark Ephrem-Nolan and many other Romanists into hell rather than implore them to turn from the hellish deceits of Rome and place their faith and trust in Christ alone for salvation.

We are clearly shown in the Scriptures that salvation is not of our own works or efforts.

The verses at the top of this article are ones which Bishop Harold Miller should be quoting to the likes of Mark Ephrem-Nolan.

Here are some more from God’s inerrant and inspired Word.

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.”

Romans 4:16, 20-25 says: “Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.”

The righteousness of Christ is imputed, or assigned, to us by grace through faith in Him.

It doesn’t come by being raised in the church or through baptism or through paying your way or attending Mass every day or saying ‘Hail Marys’, it is by placing your faith alone in Christ.

Rome teaches that our original sin, the sinful nature we are all born with through Adam, is washed away at baptism.

This is a filthy lie.

Rome’s catechism says this: “Baptism, by imparting the life of Christ’s grace, erases original sin”.

They claim sins are cleansed by the sprinkling of water, however, sin cannot be cleansed except through the blood of Christ.

Hebrews 9:22 says that “without shedding of blood is no remission”.

Let’s repeat that – there is “no remission” to be had for sin “without shedding of blood”.

It doesn’t say that some remission can be had through other means, it doesn’t say that water can be used to clear away some sins, it says that “without shedding of blood is no remission”.

That chapter continues and puts the lie to the blasphemous continual sacrificing of Christ through the Mass.

Hebrews 9:24-26, 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. 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.”

We are told Christ does not “offer himself often”, but rather “once… hath he appeared to put away sin by sacrifice of himself” and “Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many”.

This is repeated again and again for our clarity, yet Rome refuses to accept this crystal clear exposition of how we can be saved.

Mark Ephrem-Nolan is a promoter of this devilish doctrine, but Bishop Harold Miller, the “unswerving ecumenist”, considers him a “Christian brother”.

If this is the conservative wing of the Church of Ireland, then that truly shows the utterly apostate nature of that church.

We quite purposely omitted a verse from the close of Hebrews 9 above, and we will finish this post by highlighting it.

Hebrews 9:27 says: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”.

We will all die unless Christ returns first, whether we attend a Protestant church, a Roman Catholic church or follow another faith or none.

More than that, we will all be judged.

Revelation 20:11-15: “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Are you ready to meet God and be judged by Him?

Will your name be found in the book of life? Or will your name be absent and you will instead be “cast into the lake of fire”?

Hell is a real place, hell is a dreadful place, hell is forever – will you spend all eternity there or will you come to Christ for salvation?

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

If you are saved, will you warn others who are unsaved, whether they be Roman Catholic, so-called Protestant or whatever, that they face an eternity in hell if they are not saved?

Or will you follow the example of Bishop Harold Miller and flatter those believing in a false hope of salvation into that awful place called hell?

We pray that you will be a true evangelical and seek to see poor deluded Roman Catholics saved from their false religion.

Mark 16:15: “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel”.
