The soon-to-retire Church of Ireland Bishop of Derry and Raphoe, Ken (No) Good (pictured, above), is helping finish off his career in God-defying fashion by addressing two Week of Prayer for Christian Unity services in as many days.
Further demonstrating how he will be unlamented by those who hold the Word of God dear, he was the preacher at St Peter’s Roman Catholic cathedral in Belfast on Tuesday, 22 January before going to St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Armagh, the chief hub of Romanist deceit in Northern Ireland, the following night to promote unity with Rome.
This is the very system which outright denies the truth of the Word of God.
They deny the doctrine of salvation by faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5-7) and they deny that Christ’s sacrifice was sufficient to save us (Hebrews 7:26-27; Hebrews 10:10-12), thus condemning any who follow their twisted theology to an eternity in hell.
Instead, Rome has constructed a perverted system of salvation by sacramental merit, including the creation of the fictional venue of purgatory, which in turn leads to the blasphemous offering of prayers for the dead, while venerating Mary as the ‘Queen of Heaven’ and ‘Mother of Salvation’, among scores of other outrageous titles ascribed to her.
Why any should want to have unity with such outright denial and perversion of Scripture is anyone’s guess.
The Bible clearly states this ought not to be the case.
Ephesians 5:11: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
How much reproving of the unfruitful works of darkness went on in St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Armagh on Wednesday, 23 January? It is highly likely there was none, else Rev Ken No Good would not have been invited.
After all, a report from the event on the Derry and Raphoe website said that Rev Ken No Good was “flanked by the Church of Ireland and Roman Catholic Primates, Most Reverend (Most Ecumenical, more like) Richard Clarke (Church of Ireland) and Eamon Martin (Roman Catholic)”.
We are also told “the service in Armagh included prayers said by members of the Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Church of Ireland churches”.
We have already highlighted how Rome offers prayers to and for the dead, so one wonders to whom were these prayers addressed? Regardless, to engage in a service and offer prayers alongside those who promote pagan corruptions of Christianity is odious to God.
Rev Ken No Good has a track record for Papist compromise, and back in July we highlighted his disgraceful eulogising of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Derry at a Church of Ireland youth event, which you can read about by clicking here.
Speaking of Donal McKeown (with whom he is pictured, above), the Papist bishop who last July excused the vicious sectarian actions of republicans in Northern Ireland’s second city, Londonderry, targeting relentlessly for a week a small Protestant area surrounded by republican strongholds, Rev Ken No Good said: “I think he has a remarkable way with people. His memory of names, his ability to just relate to people – and I saw this in Rome particularly – he’s a real people person and there’s a warmth about him, there’s a ‘down-to-earthness’ about him.
“I actually think he’s a very good bishop – I’m quite serious about that, it’s true – and he has that warm ability to get on and relate to his people.”
How cosy and lovely.
It is noteworthy that this Papal pandering took place at a Church of Ireland youth event, called Summer Madness, thus having the effect of causing the young people in the Church of Ireland to believe aligning with Rome is acceptable and even commendable.
This leads to a situation such as was outlined in Isaiah 9:14-17, which says: “Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed. Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.”
A significant number of the leaders of the Church of Ireland are directly causing the people to err, and those who may disagree but refuse to separate are implicated as well.
“The Lord shall have no joy in their young men,” the Scriptures say, so the likes of Rev Ken No Good and Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke are breeding up a new generation within the church, who need true Christian guidance as to how to live their lives and practice their faith in God but are being led badly astray, who God Himself calls “evildoers”.
What a reprehensible thing that is!
There is a very sad harvest currently being reaped and the seeds currently being sown of another rotten crop within so much of alleged Christendom in this land.
Dear reader, please don’t allow yourself or your children to be swallowed up in the lies and blasphemies of the ecumenical movement.
Don’t allow yourself or your children to be swallowed up in the miry pit being laid by the likes of Rev Ken No Good and Most Ecumenical Richard Clarke (pictured, below).
Separate yourself from those whom God has called evildoers and don’t allow yourself to be compromised by those who trample God’s inspired Word underfoot.
Let us live holy lives, dedicated unto the Lord and wholly given over to His service.
We see even in that ecumenical love-in at Armagh how the Church of Ireland, Methodist Church and Presbyterian Church are offering up prayers beside Mary worshippers, Pope exalters, prayers for the dead sayers and deniers of the all-sufficient sacrifice of Christ at Calvary.
Are you comfortable at being involved with that? Do you want you and your children dragged down by such spiritual treachery?
Separation from corrupt churches and separation in our lives from sin and a devotion to following God in a Biblical manner is the way to revival.
This roadmap to revival is outlined in His Word.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says: “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.”
Let us turn from the wicked ways of ecumenism and religious compromise and separate ourselves unto God, and then we will see the might of God demonstrated in our land again.
