Why no similar outcry when the Bible was recently mocked and Christians offended?

Recent days have witnessed an outpouring of condemnation directed towards Pastor James McConnell, minister of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in Belfast, over his comments in a sermon about Islam. We have had the ‘former’ IRA commander and Joint First Minister, Martin McGuinness, along with the moderator of the ecumenical Presbyterian Church in Ireland, Rev Dr Rob Craig, voicing their opposition. An assortment of others from the secular and ecumenical classes, including Alliance’s East Belfast MP Naomi Long; MLAs Anna Lo, Alex Attwood, John O’Dowd and Danny Kinahan; Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary, Ivan Lewis, Northern Ireland Secretary, Theresa Villiers and Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Eamon Gilmore, have all come out to join in the chorus of condemnation as they castigate Paster McConnell for his comments. When you have these types of individuals arrayed against you, what you say must indeed be the truth. A man is known by those who oppose him, as much as by his friends! Read more

Francis the Pontiff Speaks Against the Most High

By Richard Bennett and Robert Nicholson

In keeping with Pope Francis’s identity his upcoming visit to Israel is the perfect vehicle to move forward his objective. The unfolding of this religious drama is intended by the Papacy to present Pope Francis on the real world stage as a great reconciler in promoting peace in a land riven with racial conflict and ideological confusion. The May 24-26 trip to Amman, Jerusalem and Bethlehem will mark the 50th anniversary of a landmark trip there by Pope Paul VI in 1964, the first by a pope in modern times. Subsequently, Pope John Paul II visited in 2000 and Benedict XVI made a visit to the region in 2009.2 However, since Benedict XVI’s visit, considerable destabilizing changes in the region have added incentive to this latest opportunity for the Papacy. Read more

Speaking out against Islam and annoying its allies and sympathisers

There has been quite a stir in the Northern Ireland press, following the publicised statements by Pastor James McConnell of Metropolitan Tabernacle Church in Belfast. While having serious issues with Pastor McConnell’s theology in the past, what he has said in general about the faith of Islam is Biblical and correct. Read more

Will Jean EVER get justice? Gerry Adams goes free after four days of questioning over widow’s 1972 murder – but claims HE’S the victim of ‘sinister British forces’

Sinn Fein boss Gerry Adams warned the son of IRA victim Jean McConville that he faced a ‘backlash’ if he revealed who killed his mother, it was claimed this morning. Michael McConville said he took the Republican leader’s warning as a ‘threat’ and backed off. Mr Adam’s allegedly made the veiled warning as a report was being drawn up into claims Mrs McConville was an informer for the British government. Read more

Plant Worker: Aborted Babies Had Been Incinerated for Years, “There Was So Much Blood”

by Steven Ertelt, LifeNews.com

A former plant worker at the facility found to be burning aborted babies for energy says the practice had been going on for years and he believes plant officials and perhaps even county government officials should have known.

Local officials in Oregon are upset that an energy plant is reportedly burning aborted babies from Canada to generate electricity. As LifeNews reported on Thursday, they launched an investigation into how and why aborted babies were included along with medical waste shipped from Canada to Oregon to be incinerated for energy at a recycling plant. Read more

The first Free Presbyterian Church

crossgarfpcCrossgar Free Presbyterian Church is the first Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster and the congregation out of which the worldwide Free Presbyterian movement originated. It came into being on 17th March 1951 out of evangelistic fervour, which brought it into conflict with the liberal agenda that was gaining ground in many denominations. Early in 1950, the Committee of the Crossgar Mission Hall approached the 24 year old Rev. Ian Paisley to determine whether he would conduct a Gospel Campaign in the town. After careful consideration and prayer, the date was fixed for February 1951. The Campaign Committee, the majority of whom were office-bearers or members of Lissara Presbyterian Church, feeling that the Mission Hall would be too small, decided to ask their Kirk Session for the use of the local Presbyterian Church hall for the campaign. This was unanimously granted at a meeting of Session. Read more

Did Noah pray for revival???

The Saviour clearly tells us that “ . . as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be,” Matthew 24:37-39. Read more

Pastor Joel Beeke, through RHB, Promoting Modern Bible Translations, Corrupt Teachers, and the UBS

Once again those brethren who have clung to Dr Joel Beeke and refused to see any error in his ways or wrong in the company he keeps are challenged by this article by Pastor Ralph Ovadal to consider in the light of God’s Word the behaviour of this brother.

Here in the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster, the Authorised Version of the Bible and its use in our churches have been sacrosanct. The endorsement by Dr Beeke of two modern versions, which have been deemed inferior and untrustworthy by such as The Trinitarian Bible Society, is most alarming.

Surely we are seeing a repeat of the “Billy Graham saga” of some 60 years ago when there were those who blindly clung to his coat-tails and refused to see where his compromises were leading.

“And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother,” 2 Thessalonians 3:14-15. Read the article

A prayer that England should pray in the midst of its present distresses.

floods_England_2014O MOST powerful and glorious Lord God, at Whose command the winds blow, and lift up the waves of the sea, and Who stillest the rage thereof; we thy creatures, but miserable sinners, do in this our great distress cry unto Thee for help: Save, Lord, or else we perish. We confess, when we have been safe, and seen all things quiet about us, we have forgot Thee our God, and refused to hearken to the still voice of Thy Word, and to obey Thy commandments: But now we see, how terrible Thou art in all Thy works of wonder; the great God to be feared above all: And therefore we adore Thy Divine Majesty, acknowledging Thy power, and imploring Thy goodness. Help, Lord, and save us for Thy mercy’s sake in Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer (1662)

A vital question

Can a gospel minister be considered faithful to Christ and His Word who promotes the sale of books by those who proclaim error and associate with the enemies of Christ?

That is the question which must be asked about Dr Joel Beeke’s activities as Editorial Director of “Reformation Heritage Books”. In this transcript of a sermon by Pastor Ralph Ovadal, Pilgrims Covenant Church, that question is asked and details of the character of the books Dr Beeke sells clearly detailed. The answer ought to be all too clear! Read more

Consequences for our children of the influence of the world’s education programme

Text: Nehemiah 13:23-27.

A synopsis of a sermon preached by Rev Ivan Foster at the morning session of the day of prayer for Christian Education held in Bethany Free Presbyterian Church, Portadown, on Saturday 1st February 2014.

After 35 years of involvement in and observation of the Christian Education scene, I am more than ever convinced that it is the will of God that God’s people support a Bible-based system of education. If anything, were I starting out again I would be more radical in my practices, for I have seen the consequences of failure and defiance of God in this matter. Read more

Attack by Congregational minister upon our articles on Dr Joel Beeke

It has been drawn to my attention that Rev Paul Dowling, of Whiteabbey Congregational Church, has attacked me in a sermon he preached on January 19th this year.

He was highly critical of me because of the articles I have written about Dr Joel Beeke and his fellowship with certain individuals whose theology and associations are questionable, to say the least, his promoting of unscriptural writings through his book ministry and his links with highly unorthodox organisations in very recent days.

Free Presbyterians Protest outside theatre hosting blasphemous mockery of the Bible

A protest led by Rev Brian McClung and the elders of Newtownabbey Free Presbyterian church took place outside the ‘Theatre at the Mill’ in Newtownabbey, County Antrim on Thursday evening, 30th January.

About 75 people supported the protest with many FP ministers and elders in attendance. The Moderator, Dr John Greer along with Rev McClung handed in a letter of protest to the theatre.

Recent revelations have exposed the chicanery of some of the Council’s Artistic Board in their actions in cancelling the play. It turns out that it was a cynical manoeuvre to make sure that the full Newtownabbey Council could not outrightly ban the play.

We quote from an article by Rev Brian McClung which appears on his blog

A letter sent out yesterday on behalf of the chair, Councillor Billy Webb, of the Artistic Board, which oversees the Theatre at the Mill in Newtownabbey, makes it abundantly clear that the first vote to cancel this offensive play, on Wednesday 22nd January, was purely a ‘tactical’ move by those determined to press ahead with this offensive production.

In explaining why events took the turn they did, Councillor Webb writes:

On Wednesday 22nd January, the artistic board voted tactically to withdraw the play from the programme. They had been shown a letter from a Councillor and member of the artistic board, which had been sent to the Chairman, appealing to him to stop the production. They were also made aware that, if they voted to keep the play in the programme, the likely outcome would be that, at a scheduled meeting of the council on Monday 27th January, the lay would be pulled.

Had this happened, a media furore would have ensued, similar to what we have witnessed since our original decision to withdraw the production. However, the artistic board would not have been able to reverse the council decision and as a consequence, the performance would not have been staged.

The Chair of the artistic board called a special meeting of the Board on Monday 27th January, prior to the council meeting. At this meeting a proposal was tabled to vote again on the decision made by the artistic board, the previous Wednesday. The vote was carried to reinstate the play by a majority of 9 to 2.

The artistic board have been criticised by some parts of the media, but it should be noted that through their actions, they have ensured that the programme of events for the Theatre at the Mill will go ahead as scheduled and in accordance with their original artistic judgement.

The Board remains committed to providing an artistic programme which aims to offer a diverse range of shows by leading arts performers at a venue we are all very proud of.”

By stopping the play and then rescinding that decision the Council’s Artistic Board hindered the full Council from cancelling the play outright because Council Standing Orders requires a full weeks’ notice of any motion overturning a recommendation by a Council Committee, which the Artistic Board is.

Such underhanded manipulations exposed the true nature of the play, its sponsors and those who connived to have it staged.

A letter of protest was handed in by the ministers who led the protest. Read it here.

Lessons learned from the last 30 years

By E A Foster B.A. Principal of Kilskeery Independent Christian School 1979-2007

(The substance of an address given at the 2010 Annual Education Board Dinner in Lisburn, Friday 28th May, in the presence of Education Board members, teaching staff of the Free Presbyterian Christian schools and their spouses)

It is good to learn lessons from the past. The Bible records the past for our learning, comfort and encouragement. The past thirty years have taught me much about the true nature of Christian Education. Read more


The Return of Christ – Pre-millennial

by Rev Ivan Foster. (This message was given at the first meeting of 2000 of the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony in London.)

 “And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever” (Daniel 2:44).

When it comes to the study of prophecy, this subject is a very elementary one, yet it is a subject to which many give little thought. Many Christians have a general view of the return of Christ, that it is going to happen, but they are not well versed on what the Bible has to say about that glorious event. That ought not to be. It is a subject with which God’s people should be well acquainted. Read more

God making bare His arm in revival power – the need of the hour.

“The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God,” Isaiah 52:10.

The synopsis of a sermon preached in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church, Lord’s Day morning, 1st December 1991, by Rev Ivan Foster.

This strong metaphor or symbolic phrase is used to denote God rising up to the aid of His people. The prophecy primarily refers to that day when the Lord will arise to recover and restore Israel to His favour and the enjoying again of His mercy and salvation. The opening verses of the chapter clearly indicate that. Read more
