The day following the sodomite “Gay Pride” parade in Belfast, (Saturday, 4th August) I went to God’s house much cast down by the news reports of the support given to that evil demonstration! In a land so blessed by God over the last 500 years and more, to hear of children and babes in arms in their hundreds being brought along to such an event and being used to ‘sanitise’ this defiance of the laws of God and of nature, was most distressing.

It was in such a state of mind I went to God’s house. But it was there that God had a word for my soul! Read more

News review Friday August 10th

For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them,” Acts 20:27-30.

News review Friday August 3rd

“If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself,” 1 Timothy 6:3-5.

Wales’ First Minister sets out priorities for new laws

Queen’s University to review theological college link
