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.

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.

The voice of betrayal from the past which warns us to be on guard against such happening again!!

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.

The following are matters of grave concern when it comes to the use of a crucifix, especially by professed Bible-believing Protestants.

1. The sign of the cross. While the sign of the cross has come to be almost universally accepted as a Christian symbol…

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.

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

By Rev Ivan Foster


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.

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

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

Predictably getting the siege all wrong

ATT2by Australian commentator Bernard Gaynor who has a background in military intelligence, Arabic language and culture and has returned from three Iraq deployments.

The following article, though written for Australian readers in the context of the recent tragic events in Sydney, can be easily understood by readers here in the United Kingdom where the same stupid and blind “head-in-the-sand” attitude is adopted and propagated by the “liberal political elite” in the face of an even greater Muslim threat than that which faces Australia.

It is the spirit of Neville Chamberlain gone mad!!

Australia has woken to the devastating news that two hostages died in the Lindt Café last night. Like all Australians, my thoughts and prayers are with the families of those now grieving. Read more

The birth of Christ . . . WHEN and WHY?

The substance of a sermon preached on Lord’s Day 23rd December 2002, in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by Rev. Ivan Foster.

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief, 1 Timothy 1:15.

This is a timely topic since we are surrounded by the many evidences of the world’s celebration of the birth of Christ. It has to be said that many people have expressed reservations about the nature of the celebrations and whether they really have any relationship to the coming into the world of the Son of God. I suppose you do not have to search very far to see the reasons for such concerns. That the police and the various authorities, linked with safety on the roads, should be required to make special appeals at this time of year to try and curtail people from drinking to excess in celebration of Christmas, does raise the question of whether such activity is in keeping with a marking of the birth of the Redeemer of men from sin. Very obviously, it is not. Read more

Rick Warren – the Champion of Reunion with Rome

By Rev Ivan Foster

Good friends in Australia sent me a link to a video (watch it below) featuring Rick Warren pleading the cause of cooperation and unity with Popery.

As I watched the video I was carried back to the earlier days of Ecumenism when people like the late Dr Michael Ramsey, the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1961 until 1974, was one of the chief apostles of Unity with Rome. Rick Warren fills the shoes of Ramsey very well indeed. Indeed, this so-called “Evangelical Pastor” “out-Ramseys” Ramsey when it comes to promoting the cause of Rome.

He takes upon himself the task of defending Rome’s doctrines of Mariolatry and explaining away the differences that the Reformers highlighted and declared to be marks of a system of Antichrist.

The video, put out by the “Catholic News Service”, not surprisingly, has the Saddleback Church minister attempting to explain away Rome’s idolatrous system. He is clearly seen telling Protestants that they have it all wrong and then going on to claim that Rome and Protestantism hold the same views on the Trinity, the Bible, Salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ and he even defends and seeks to justify the use of prayers to the Virgin Mary and the saints!

How God makes saints: The pope’s way and God’s way compared.

Dec1401a“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins,” Ephesians 2:1.

On Lord’s Day, November 23rd, 2014, the Pope, as arrogant as any that ever went before him, despite the media’s depiction of him as a ‘humble man’, took upon himself the power to ‘make’ some new saints!

These are the words he employed during the ‘ceremony’.

“We declare and define Blesseds Giovanni Antonio Farina; Kuriakose Elias Chavara of the Holy Family; Ludovico da Casoria; Nicola da Longobardi; Eufrasia Eluvathingal of the Sacred Heart and Amato Ronconi to be Saints and we enrol them among the Saints, decreeing that they are to be venerated as such by the whole Church.”

Jerusalem in the news – Now and in the Future

By Rev Ivan Foster.

Jerusalem_Dome_of_the_rock_BW_14The first part of this message was preached in Bangor Free Presbyterian Church, Lord’s Day, 23rd November, in the evening meeting.

The Christian is blessed with a wonderful knowledge of the future, both that which is related to this earth and its affairs and that which is related to eternity.

We are required by the Author of this knowledge – the Lord Jesus Christ – to share it. That is why we preach the gospel and engage in many forms of missionary enterprises. In like fashion we should also engage in the propagation of prophetic truth.


The devil desires to confound, corrupt and distort both aspects of God’s truth. He is the author of the many “alternative gospels” offered to men today. He is also the author of the confusion that surrounds prophecy.

Such is the confusion he has sown that many believers, including ministers, believe that it is a futile and foolish thing to study what the Bible has to say about prophecy. What folly!! Read more

Or listen to the message using the player below

Back to the top

Here we go again!! Another attack on God’s word.

An American television channel which is also networked in the United Kingdom, H2, has announced that it will soon be showing a series of anti-Bible programmes in which “experts” will purport to “prove” that the Bible is full of contradictions, historical inaccuracies, frauds and many other forms of “mistakes’!

Central to the philosophy of the programme makers will be a rejection of the virgin birth of Christ and, of course, the inspiration and inerrancy of the Word of God.

The advert for the programme is vexing and disconcerting enough, so it can be imagined just what the series of programmes will do!

Remember the roaring of Goliath? “And there went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. . . . . And he stood and cried unto the armies of Israel, and said unto them, Why are ye come out to set your battle in array? am not I a Philistine, and ye servants to Saul? choose you a man for you, and let him come down to me. . . . . And the Philistine said, I defy the armies of Israel this day; give me a man, that we may fight together. . . . .” 1 Samuel 17:4, 8, 10.

He was big He was impressive and the army of Israel were intimidated by his size and his boastful arrogance. But not so David, and the rest is history!

Let every child of God bear in mind some simple facts regarding the Bible and the history of its enemies. Read the rest of the article

A vindication of sorts – 27 years on!!!

A29FKH Single remembrance day poppy against white backgroundThe following article on the Enniskillen bombing by the IRA 27 years ago appeared in this week’s “Impartial Reporter”, the local newspaper for the Fermanagh, South Tyrone area.

I have highlighted a very significant section in the middle of the article.

I too remember the Enniskillen bombing very vividly because of those I knew who were murdered and maimed in that wicked, cowardly act by the IRA, the lies and deception of church and state and also because it happened on my 44th birthday!

The significance of the highlighted section is that it goes a little way to vindicating me and the allegations I made, following the bombing, about the ‘powers that be’ seeking to placate Irish Nationalism and the Roman Catholic Church and hide from the public the involvement of elements within the Roman Catholic church in Enniskillen in the steps taken to set up the bomb in one of their properties.

I was most surprised to read in Mr McDaniel’s comments a reference to a statement I issued to his newspaper at the time, for it is not the norm for newspaper editors to acknowledge they might have got it wrong – especially after 27 years.

For that I thank him.

In answer to the question he poses in the title of his article: Yes, we will get answers. When? In that day when “every one of us shall give account of himself to God,” Romans 14:12.

You can read the account I gave of the “Poppy Day Massacre” at the time, using the link below. I have highlighted in it the letter, referred to by Mr McDaniels, that I sent to “The Impartial Reporter” but which he chose not to publish. Read more

Update from Pilgrims Covenant Church

ovadal_reportBelow is a link to the latest report from a brother in Christ, Pastor Ralph Ovadal of Pilgrims Covenant Church, Monroe, Wisconsin, USA, with whom we have had fellowship both in his church and by participating on occasions in his broadcasts.

It is clear that he and his people have a deep desire to share the gospel and also to earnestly contend for the faith against the ever deepening, ever widening departure from the simple path of obedience to God’s Word especially manifested today in the antics of new evangelicalism and the bewildering meanders of the modernising movements flooding Christendom.

I would request prayer for him and his people as they continue to serve the Lord.
Should anyone wish to support this outreach, you may do so by writing to:

“Replacement Theology”: Does God Mean What He Says?

EPSON MFP imageBy Stephen A Toms, Secretary: Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony
Printed copies of this article may be purchased online here

It appears that the philosophy of ‘Replacement Theology’ is becoming more commonly believed amongst professing Christians and, consequently, we consider it right to say something about the issue.

Replacement Theology is the strange notion that the Church (made up of Jews and Gentiles) has replaced national Israel, so that the covenant promises made by God to His ancient people are not really meant for them at all, but were intended for others. Hence, the word ‘replacement.’ In a peculiar way and with great inconsistency, it is thought that the Church replaces the nation in order to receive the promised blessings, but the curses are left for the Jewish people.

The Glory Days of Ian Paisley

Dr. Ian Paisley

Dr. Ian Paisley

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children, Hosea 4:6.

I thought of Ian Paisley or ‘Doc’ as many of us affectionately called him who knew him in the 60s and 70s, when I recently read the words of the above verse during the course of my daily Bible reading, as I followed R. Murray McCheyne’s Bible reading calendar. Read more

Patrick Magee (pictured in Belfast last year) is free and apparently  living a happy and contented life while his victims lie in their graves. While we rage and fret about the terrorist outrages of today, how quickly we forget the horrors of the recent past. Read more

Proposed Changes to Abortion Law in Northern Ireland

David_FordThe case being made for changes to the law regarding abortion in Northern Ireland that David Ford, Justice Minister in the Stormont power-sharing government and leader of the Alliance Party is pushing, is not new.

The Justice Department is asking for the views of the public on whether abortion should be allowed for women carrying children which would die due to defects anyway, and also it is being asked whether abortions should be available to those who conceived due to incest or rape.

It should be remembered that the decision to abort a baby which is alleged to be suffering from defects, from which it will die after its birth, rests upon the views of doctors, based upon their interpreting of medical evidence supplied by scans etc.

That amounts to the doctors supplanting the role of God! Read more

Godless Federations

(A message preached at the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony evening meeting held in New Life Presbyterian Church hall (kindly granted) in West Kilburn, London, on Friday 26th September, 2014, by Rev Ivan Foster)

“Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: the tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah,” Psalm 83:1-8.

The anti-Israel sentiments expressed here in this psalm have long been desired and if anything are stronger today than ever before. How precise and detailed is the information here given on this federation of nations. Prophecy is history written before the event. This amalgam of haters of Israel will indeed come together in their efforts to “cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance” just prior to our Saviour’s return. Read more

The Apostasy

A message preached at the Sovereign Grace Advent Testimony afternoon meeting held in New Life Presbyterian Church hall (kindly granted) in West Kilburn, London, on Friday 26th September, 2014, by Rev Ivan Foster.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God,” 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4. Read more
