Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible omits any reference to children needing to be converted in the section entitled: “Raising children in the Lord”

In the ‘Christian Living Section’ of ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’, there is an article entitled: “Raising Children in the Lord”.

This article outlines five “means” which Christian parents are to employ in raising children in the Lord. There is first a reference to praying for children. This is expanded to mean labouring to bring our children to Jesus so that He might bless them. Matthew 19:13-15 is included as a reference at this point.

Subsequent “means” of raising children are outlined as: teaching the Bible to your children, disciplining them in love, offering wise counsel, and lastly, living as a godly example before them.

There is something seriously, and sadly, lacking in this section on “Raising Children in the Lord”. There is no clear and obvious mention of the children, of believers, needing to be evangelised and converted to Christ. What is the aim in praying, teaching, disciplining, counselling and setting a godly example before our children? It is that they might be converted to Christ and that at an early age.

Membership of a church — is it necessary??

kilskeeryfpcA word to many who attend Free Presbyterian services. By Rev Ivan Foster

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers, Acts 2:42.

This is an important matter in a day of lawlessness when God’s order is defied, neglected and overthrown in many lives. In order to enjoy the fulness of God’s blessing we must be conformed to all His commandments and laws.

The persons referred to in our text are true converts to Christ. They were the product of Holy Ghost conviction in a day we can only call a day of mighty revival power as it has never been known since. These were a people, doubtless of all ages, who acted upon the Word of God that was preached to them by the apostles that wonderful day. “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized.” They were the glad receivers of the Word of God. They openly professed their faith by being baptised. Furthermore, they were added unto the church, verses 41, 47. That means they “joined the church”, took their place amongst the ranks of the ekklesia, the called-out gathering of people professing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Impartial Reporter” editorial critical of Jim Wells MLA and those who share his views of sodomy

A response by Rev Ivan Foster

I have known Mr McDaniel for a long time. Given his background, I am disappointed that he propagates in the editorial of his newspaper on 30th April, the standard abuse of Christians who seek to obey God’s Word regarding sodomy and even seeks to endorse his comments by ending with a quote from the Word of God, albeit, not from the Authorised Version.

“ALL CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS!!”

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today. By Rev Ivan Foster.

Part 4 : Further illustrations of former manifestations of apostasy.

Examples of the spirit of apostasy at work throughout the ages, recorded within Holy Scripture, are myriad. We may conclude from that fact that the Lord is most desirous of us learning of the dangers of apostasy, the waywardness into which the ‘creepers’ which Jude warns of would have us go. The danger is thus highlighted for us to heed.

Was what Jim Wells said wrong??

Unscriptural home environments are a threat to the wellbeing of children

By Rev Ivan Foster

DUP MLA and former Heath Minister, Jim Wells

DUP MLA and former Heath Minister, Jim Wells

In the wake of the storm over the comments made by Mr Jim Wells, the DUP former Minister of Health who was forced out of office by the concerted campaign of opposition to his comments on sodomite unions and the danger posed to children by such unions, a few comments are required.

It is clear that it was not just what Mr Wells had said at a political gathering in Downpatrick last week that aroused the opposition of the sodomite lobby. No, it was his long-held views of sodomy and sodomite marriage that caused these critics to seize upon what he said in Downpatrick and make it the basis of a vigorous and vicious crusade against him with the objective of having him removed from office.

The rejection of the Bible has opened the floodgates of hell!!

jim_wells

DUP MLA Jim Wells

The advocates of immorality and the perverted lifestyle of the sodomite community have become more vocal, more bold in their promoting of that which the Bible calls “an abomination” and in their denunciations of anyone who dares to contradict their views.

The Jim Wells incident has highlighted that!

At a recent political meeting in Downpatrick, a member of the audience videoed Mr Wells making some remarks about same sex marriages and the raising of children within such arrangements. In the video clip, Mr Wells says “the facts show you certainly don’t bring a child up in a homosexual relationship”. He went on to claim children were “far more likely to be abused or neglected” in “non-stable” marriages.

These words have caused a political uproar!

The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’s article on Regeneration contradicts the Perseverance of the Saints

Within The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible article on Regeneration, the following paragraph is found: The sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper reflect this twofold meaning of regeneration. The one is a rite of initiation, administered only once, as a sign of the new birth that happens only once. The other is a rite of nurture, signifying the way in which our souls are nourished and refreshed by feeding on Christ as the true food and drink of eternal life. It must be administered frequently, because the new life within us is still created, dependent life that will wane and die if not refueled and sustained.

The last sentence of this paragraph makes reference to the Believer’s ‘new life’ waning and dying and needing to be refueled and sustained by the Lord’s Supper to avoid this happening. The sentences states: It [ie. The Lord’s Supper] must be administered frequently, because the new life within us is still created, dependent life that will wane and die if not refueled and sustained. (Emphasis added)

Read the entire article posted on The sound of an alarm site here.

Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible employs a ‘somewhat vague’ and ‘confusing’ definition of the doctrine of ‘Regeneration’. Why?

In ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’ there is a full page article given over to an explanation of the important doctrine of ‘Regeneration’.

This full page article appears on page 1,774 of the Study Bible, in connection with the occurrence of the word ‘regeneration’ in Titus 3:5. This word translated ‘regeneration’ only appears twice in all the New Testament, and only in Titus 3:5 does it refer to the subject of individual salvation. The other place the word appears is Matthew 19:28, where it is used with respect to the coming restitution of all things.

Dr Beeke’s Bible venture begins to unravel

RHB_study_bible“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy,” Proverbs 28:13.

There is something worse than sinning. It is a denying of our sin and a seeking to cover it.

There is something worse than dishonesty. It is the covering-up of a lie and seeking to pass it off as a poorly-stated truth.

Both of these things the producers of the “Reformation Heritage Study Bible” (RHSB) and the editor, Dr Joel Beeke, in particular are guilty of.

The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible justifies drinking alcohol

wineIf Christians were to read the following statement justifying the drinking of alcohol, especially the words underlined, without knowing where they came from, I wonder what their first reaction would be?

This is especially applicable to Free Presbyterians, who hold to a Temperance position on the consumption of alcohol.

The statement reads: Beware of the danger of drunkenness. We personally need to be very careful with strong drink. It is a stumbling block to many. Alcoholic drink is not wrong per se, but the Bible does clearly teach that drunkenness makes one unaware of what is happening. We must not misuse our bodies. Drunkennes is often linked to immorality and unseemly behavior. Therefore, respect the civil laws limiting alcohol consumption and guard yourself against ever becoming intoxicated.

Rev. Brian McClung has posted a series of articles dealing with this important matter on his personal blog “The Sound of an alarm”. Use the links below to read his articles.

The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible Map Section endorses the liberal interpretation of the Bible, with no crossing of the Red Sea

RHB_KJV_mapEditor’s comment.

Yet again Rev Brian McClung has highlighted an example of ‘unorthodoxy’ manifesting itself in Dr. Joel Beeke’s ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’.

It contains in its maps’ section a blatant denial of the Exodus record of God leading Israel through the Red Sea, which He had miraculously divided for them so that they could escape Pharaoh and his host.

The record of God’s inspired Word states:

And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians, And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians. And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them,” Exodus 14:21-28.

That glorious event is wickedly and flagrantly denied in ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’.

May the Lord give grace to those ministers who were involved in this production and who by so doing have encouraged Free Presbyterians to purchase copies of this Bible now to speak out and warn the people of God about the corruptions and errors within this production.

I have no doubts that they do not share such modernistic and God-denying thinking but they must now disassociate themselves from this ’Study Bible’ and not become part of the deceitful cover-up of these wretched denials of God’s truth.

We commend this article to our readers and urge them to pray for those men who have unwittingly aided this unhappy venture that they might take the decisive action required by the Lord in this crucial issue.

“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin,” James 4:17.
“Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking (disregarding) the law dishonourest thou God?” Romans 2:23.

“ALL CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS!!”

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today by Rev Ivan Foster.

Part 3: Remembering the lessons of former manifestations of apostasy.

It cannot be emphasised enough that “the thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun,” Ecclesiastes 1:9

.
The instigator of rebellion and apostasy, the devil, cannot change. He cannot change his tactics, his objectives or his methods.

Therefore, it is very easy to discover both his activities of former times repeated and, to a very large degree, anticipate the form and fashion of his next attack.

It is for this reason that the Saviour tells us, “As it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed,” Luke 17:26-30. The ways of the heart and mind under the control of sin will not alter.

The protest took the form of an open-air service with the preaching of God’s Word.

Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible wrongly teaches that Justification brings about a “change of man’s moral nature”

Comment by the Editor:

As well as teaching the popish doctrine that Peter is the rock upon which the Church is built, it is now evident that Joel Beeke’s “Reformation Heritage Study Bible” also teaches the popish doctrine that Justification brings about a “change of man’s moral nature.”

That is similar to saying that because Gerry Kelly, as was recently disclosed, received a Royal Pardon in the 1990s, he underwent a moral change as well!!

We who live in Ulster know that the man who was a prominent member of the IRA and a convicted murderer, is today the same apologist for the IRA’a campaign of terror and murder as he was when an active gunman/bomber.
A legal pardoning of his crimes did not alter his moral character.

So it is with the Bible’s teaching on “Justification.”

These errors in this most inappropriately named “Reformation Heritage Study Bible” must surely further embarrass those Free Presbyterian ministers, who despite many warnings about the dubious associations and behaviour of the man behind it, Joel Beeke, went ahead and put their name to this publication and those who are presently pushing its sales amongst their members.

We commend Rev Brian McClung’s much-needed exposure of this “Bible” and urge everyone to read and study his article.

Public meeting to show support for Ashers bakery

waterfront_hallA meeting has been organized by the Christian Institute in The Waterfront Hall, Belfast, on Tuesday 24 March from 8.00pm – 9.30pm.

The following is a note from C. I. Director Colin Hart.

Dear supporter,

Christian bakers’ court case has far-reaching implications for Gospel freedom. In less than two weeks the McArthur family, owners of Ashers Baking Company, face trial at the hands of the taxpayer-funded Equality Commission because of their beliefs about marriage.

People from all over Northern Ireland have been talking about the case, and its far-reaching implications for religious liberty and Gospel freedom, ever since the McArthurs declined to decorate a cake with the slogan ‘Support Gay Marriage’.

But people are not hearing the truth about the case from the BBC and many others in the media. That’s why we have included some Q & As below. I hope you will find these useful when discussing the McArthurs’ situation with your friends, perhaps especially with those who do not go to church.

We believe that the overwhelming majority of people in Northern Ireland think that the McArthur family should not be forced to endorse a cause with which they profoundly disagree. We are asking you to show your support for Ashers Baking Company in the week of their trial.

Please join us at The Waterfront Hall, Belfast, on Tuesday 24 March from 8.00pm – 9.30pm where you will hear first-hand from Daniel McArthur, General Manager of Ashers Baking Company. One of the family’s lawyers will speak about the alarming implications of this case for religious liberty and Gospel freedom.

In addition, Christian B&B owner Hazelmary Bull will share her experience of being pursued in the courts over her stand for marriage. We will also share the latest news on the McArthurs’ case and key matters for prayer.

Please bring this event to the attention of your church fellowship and friends, and encourage as many as possible to attend. Please also be remembering the McArthurs in your prayers.

What happened?
In May 2014, an LGBT activist asked Ashers Baking Company for a cake to be decorated with the slogan ‘Support Gay Marriage’ – the order was declined by the owners. The firm is being taken to court by the Equality Commission; it claims Ashers has broken sexual orientation and political discrimination laws.

Did they discriminate?
No. The order was declined because it promoted a campaign with which the McArthur family fundamentally disagree. It was the message they objected to, not the customer.

General Manager Daniel McArthur has publicly stated that the firm is happy to serve any customer. The owners were not aware of the sexual orientation of the customer at the time he placed the order and therefore could not discriminate against him on that ground. Had he been a heterosexual the order would still have been declined because the message clashed with the ethos of the business.

Northern Ireland’s equality laws were intended to protect people, not attack them for their deeply-held religious convictions. We do not believe that Ashers Baking Company has broken any laws.

Has the bakery turned down any other requests?
Yes. It has refused other orders in the past, such as designs incorporating nudity or bad language.

What does the law say about same-sex marriage?
Same-sex marriage is not legal in Northern Ireland. MLAs in the NI Assembly have voted on three occasions to preserve the traditional definition of marriage – most recently in April 2014 by 51 votes to 43.

Does the Equality Commission have a position on same-sex marriage?
Yes. The Equality Commission is campaigning for the introduction of same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland. Its website states: “The Commission supports the introduction of legislation permitting same sex marriage…including sufficient safeguards for religious organisations.”

Are homosexuals united against the bakers?
Not at all. Leading gay rights campaigner Jeffrey Dudgeon, for example, has called for the court action to be dropped and accused the Commission of twisting discrimination law. Many others have also spoken out in support of free speech and united in their belief that, whilst they may disagree with the McArthurs on same-sex marriage, the family should not be forced to endorse a campaign with which they profoundly disagree.

What can I do?
Come to our meeting at The Waterfront Hall, Belfast, onTuesday 24 March from 8.00pm – 9.30pm where one of the family’s lawyers will speak about the alarming implications of this case for religious liberty and Gospel freedom. Daniel McArthur and B&B owner Hazelmary Bull will also be speaking, and we will share the latest news on the case and key matters for prayer.

Talk about the case to your friends, especially those who do not go to church, using some of the important points above.

Pray for the McArthurs and their legal team, and for a just outcome to the case.

THE FOOTSTEPS OF PATRICK

slemishA brief account of the work of God in Ireland over the last 1500 years

Rev. Ivan Foster.

The Gospel of Christ came to Ireland over 1500 years ago. Despite many attempts by Satan and his agents God has been pleased to maintain His truth in this land. Following its first planting the Gospel was carried by men whose hearts the Lord had touched into many neighbouring countries: Scotland, England, Wales, France, Germany, Switzerland and further.

God has been pleased, in some measure, to do again in these latter days what He did in those distant days. May the land, now associated with terror and strife, become known again by the title it was then given, “The land of Saints and Scholars.”

Peter is the Rock upon which the Church is built…

RHB_study_bibleAccording to The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible!

Strange to observe that the “Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible” teaches in its footnotes that Peter is the Rock upon which the church is built, in Matthew 16:18: And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

This is most incredible indeed for this is Romish teaching. The Roman Catholic church teaches that Peter is the rock upon which the church is built and bases her doctrine of the papacy upon this teaching.
That this should be found in the “Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible” serves to show just where compromise will take us, no matter how innocuous that compromise may appear at first.

Read more (Link to article by Rev. Brian McClung on his Sound of an Alarm blog)

Some of those brethren who have given their name to this production were warned that there was danger in this venture given Joel Beeke’s record of compromise.

Did they know that the Study Bible contained this footnote and if they did, why did they go along with it since it teaches that which has historically been rejected by Protestantism?
Furthermore, if they did not know about this footnote, is there not here evidence of treachery amongst those who promoted this work and are they now going to declare themselves opposed to the inclusion of this footnote?

Ivan Foster.
12th March 2015.

Dr Paisley on who was the ‘rock’ upon which the Church was built
This quote is taken from Dr Paisley’s Concise Guide to Bible Christianity and Romanism.

Question 27: What text in Matthew’s Gospel does the Church of Rome use to support her claims for St. Peter being the first Pope?

Answer – Matthew chapter 16 and verse 18: ‘And I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ The meaning of this text is obvious. Jesus having heard from the disciples the various notions which were entertained of Him, asked them: ‘But whom say ye that I am?’ and Peter, always more forward than the rest, replied: ‘Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.’

Jesus, having pronounced him blessed, as every believer is (Psalm 32:1), said: ‘Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.’ Christ in addressing Peter said: ‘Thou art Peter,’ using the word ‘petros’, which signifies a stone, but in referring to the rock He used the word ‘petra’, which means properly ‘an immovable rock’. He does not say: ‘Thou art Peter, and upon thee I will build my church’, but ‘upon this Rock.’ The Rock he had confessed was Christ the Son of the living God, as though He said: ‘Thou art Peter, a living stone in this spiritual edifice, but upon this immovable foundation I will build my church.’

This is where the Free Presbyterian Church once stood united on this issue. However, Beeke’s Bible with its false and deceitful teaching on this matter sides with Rome.
Is this matter going to be silently ignored by the leadership of the Free Presbyterian Church???

It is time for men to be men and stand up for the truth of God in order to preserve the gospel heritage of our denomination.

Why Christ stopped the devils speaking the truth

Johnny_Cash1“And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ,” Luke 4:41.

Today, there is a brand of Christianity which would deem the Saviour’s action in this verse as both wrong and unwise!

I am referring to those who believe that they can further Christ’s cause by employing the “singing” of men such as Johnny Cash. His singing is deemed popular amongst many who would make no profession of religion and because his repertoire contains that which some would consider gospel “songs”, pushing his name and songs to the fore in a “gospel” gathering is considered a wonderful way of getting unconverted souls under the gospel.

Principles abandoned – God’s Truth Betrayed

storey_cross_3The Corrymeela Community objectives have been defined so: “The Corrymeela Community is a Christian community whose objective is the promotion of reconciliation and peace-building through the healing of social, religious, and political divisions in Northern Ireland. It runs programmes aimed at establishing a shared society defined by tolerance, where differences are resolved through dialogue in the public sphere and where there is equity, respect for diversity and recognition of interdependence.”

In one word CORRYMEELA means ECUMENISM with its old objective of REUNION with ROME.

bible_imageAn outline study of the Book of Jude by Rev. Ivan Foster

Part 2: The fight we must engage in

There never was a time when the ‘FAITH’, that is the doctrines of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, has not been under attack!

Every generation since Adam has witnessed the devil’s assault upon God’s truth. The assault has taken many forms and many strategies have been employed by that Master of Wiles, the devil. Paul said that “we are not ignorant of his devices,” 2 Corinthians 2:11. Of course this is perfectly true, since the wicked mind of Satan and his unceasing efforts to overthrow God’s Kingdom are fully revealed in the Holy Scriptures. We have no excuse for ignorance or unpreparedness but, sadly, such is our carelessness and slackness, our deafness and heedlessness of God’s Word that we fail to take due notice of the information given us. Read more

BillyGraham_PopeAt the beginning of his preaching career, Dr Billy Graham had the endorsement and support of Fundamentalist leaders such as Dr Bob Jones and Dr John R Rice.

Indeed, he had the support and prayers of millions of Bible-believers around the world.

But then came departure on his part in the form of his entering into fellowship with those whose theology was deemed liberal. He incorporated such men into his organisation and they became a prominent part of his crusades. Read more

A conference of confusion

G3-2015-1024x558We commend to our readers Pastor Ralph Ovadal’s clear exposure of those who masquerade as defenders of the Bible when they are in fact those who have long carried on a campaign to undermine the Word of God by promoting modern Bible translations.

Pastor Ovadal examines the 2015 G3 Conference on the theme of “Battle for the Bible”, planned for January 22nd – 24th, at Pray’s Mill Baptist Church, Douglasville, Georgia, USA.

It is sad that this exercise in hypocrisy is supported by many who ought to know better and who formerly stood with those who upheld the Authorised Version of the Holy Scriptures.
Click here to see a list of those organisations which are “Exhibitors” at this conference.

Doubtless it will disappoint and grieve many who “tremble at His word” (Isaiah 66:5), to read the names listed. Today, the “evangelical camp” contains those who are known for their Neo-evangelical and New Calvinist views as well as those who are noted for their support for and promotion of so-called “Contemporary Worship”, “Holy Hip-Hop” and “Reformed Rap”

It is sad to see that Sermonaudio heads the list of “Exhibitors”!!

May God intervene to prevent another Billy Graham debacle with the resultant shame and reproach brought upon the cause of Christ and confusion and defeat visited upon faithful Christians who have once again been misled and betrayed.

The Editor.

“CHRISTIANS TO ACTION STATIONS!!”

roman_soldierAn outline study of Jude – an important little book for today.

By Rev Ivan Foster

Introduction.

When this book was written is not readily ascertained. However, it is widely believed to have been written at least 30 years into the apostolic age – somewhere around 65 AD. It was likely written before the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

The reason why it was written is easily seen from the verses 3-4. “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The epistle greatly resembles the 2nd chapter of 2 Peter. This in itself indicates the concern there was amongst the first generation of apostolic preachers and pastors regarding the inroads of false teachers and false teaching. Paul’s warnings in Acts 20:28-30; 1 Timothy 4; 2 Timothy 3 as well as numerous other warnings scattered throughout the New Testament epistles serve to highlight this threat facing the early church.

We are inclined to think of those days of Holy Ghost power as somewhat idyllic days. They were in truth no such thing. Persecution and satanic attacks through false teachers were the norm. Read more

What the Bible says about drugs and terrorism

2473024500000578-0-image-m-18_1420549779168 (1)The article below comes from the Daily Mail of January 6th. It highlights a link between drug-taking, wickedness, violence and terrorism.

The Muslim terrorists, ISIS, have shocked the world with their displays of barbaric cruelty toward innocent victims, kidnapped in order to induce appropriate responses to their demands from Western nations not to mention those they deem their enemies.

The act of cutting someone’s throat in such a cold-blooded manner as the ISIS terrorists have done, can be done only under the influence of drugs, satanic possession or both!

The Word of God, always ahead of the events unfolding in these days, prior to the end of this age, refers to the use of drugs in three places.

  • “Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,” Galatians 5:20.
  • “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts,” Revelation 9:21.
  • “And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived,” Revelation 18:23.

Mervyn Storey, Minister for Social Development in the Northern Ireland Executive, tried to distance himself from funding of sodomites

1280757771-free-presbyterian-protesters-demonstrate-against-belfast-gay-pride_400328In answer to questions regarding the squandering of £3 million “on many undeserving projects” by the Department of Social Development, tabled by Mr Jim Allister MLA, an unnamed department official sought to shield Mr Storey from all blame regarding the funding of sodomites organisations.

Here is what was disclosed in an article in the Belfast Newsletter in its report of the Department of Social Development’s reply to Mr. Allister.

“The answers received revealed that amongst the spend: £1,064,546.17 was spent on GAA clubs, with £273,000 spent on one club alone in Strabane, Strabane Sigerson’s Club; £1,134,100.33 was spent on Irish language groups; £138,997.78 was spent on a republican ex-prisoners group, Tar Anall; £83,176.18 was spent on the Bloody Sunday Trust; £259,087.93 was spent on Carrick Hill Residents Association; and £231,681.00 was spent on LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transexual) projects, including £170,000 to support the Strabane & Lifford LGBT group alone, and annual subventions to Belfast Pride.” (See a full news report here)

We want to emphasise the fact that “£231,681.00 was spent on LGBT projects, including £170,000 to support the Strabane & Lifford LGBT group alone, and annual subventions to Belfast Pride.”

While Free Presbyterians denounce and protest against the “Belfast Gay Pride” parade, Mr Storey, a Free Presbyterian elder, is engaged through his Department in funding the same wickedness!

His unnamed official did seek to shield Mr Storey. It was reported in the Belfast Newsletter: “Political considerations do not form any part of the assessment and the minister does not have, and does not wish to have, any role in funding decisions.”

That is patent poppycock! Read more

The Islamic Religion of Peace Destroys a Thousand Churches

crescent-200When we see “Christians” referred to in many articles quoting from figures obtained from worldly organisations, we should bear in mind that few agencies or organisations distinguish between true Biblical Christianity and those who claim to be “Christians” but who embrace doctrines and practices which are entirely unscriptural and therefore unchristian.

The term embraces Roman Catholicism, Eastern and Greek Orthodox churches and many other branches of Christendom. Here is an example of the breakdown of those who would come under the term “Christian” taken from Wikipedia’s analysis of Nigeria’s religious community and it illustrates what we are saying. “Nigeria is a society with Christianity, Islam and Traditional African religion being professed. According to recent estimates Christianity is practiced by 50.5% of the population. (19.9% Protestantism, 12.3% Churches of Christ, 10.1% Anglicanism and 8.2% Catholicism). Islam is the second greatest religion by 43.5% consisting of 95% Sunni Islam and 5% Shia Islam. 6% of the Nigerian people practises Traditional African religion.”

However, having said that, the wicked cruelty of the Muslim slayers of those who profess Christianity is in no way diminished. They are of those referred to by the Saviour in John 16:2. “They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. ” Theological differences matter not to these evil, devil-inspired killers. Anyone remotely linked to the worship of the God of the Bible is anathema to them and worthy of death.

The following article, which was sent to us by friends in Australia, is worthy of close consideration.Read more

“GOD SAVE THE KING”

crownA look at God’s means of rescuing and reviving the cause of Christ amongst us as it is suggested to us in 2 Chronicles chapters 22 and 23.

by Rev Ivan Foster.

It is sad to realise that the lasting impact of the life of that good man, Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, was one so contrary to the overall testimony of the man. At the beginning of the divine record of his life it is recorded of him.

“And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not unto Baalim; but sought to the LORD God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel. Therefore the LORD stablished the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honour in abundance. And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD: moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah,” 2 Chronicles 17:3-6. Read more
