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.”
