The increasing animosity to the gospel in the United Kingdom

Mr. Richard Page

A recent news report gave the details of how a Christian magistrate was sacked and then suspended from his position as non-executive director by Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust.

His crime? Mr. Richard Page was struck off after he told the BBC it would be better for a man and a woman to adopt a child!

That is stating a simple truth, long held sacred in this land, in a very mild manner but for this he was removed as a magistrate.

Speaking about his views he said, “My responsibility as a magistrate, as I saw it, was to do what I considered best for the child. My feeling was therefore that it would be better if it was a man and woman who were the adoptive parents.” Read more

The indifference of men to the agonies of Christ

easter_eggIs it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger, Lamentations 1:12.

(A gospel message preached in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by the then minister, Rev Ivan Foster, on Lord’s Day morning, 17th January 1999)

What a mountain of triviality occupies the interest of mankind! This is never more obvious than at ‘Easter’ time! Bunnies and chocolate eggs take precedence over the glorious events of the Saviour’s sufferings, death and resurrection.

There are those in the scientific world who are renowned for their knowledge of bugs and beetles, lice and leeches. Some men ceaselessly gaze at the stars in order to catch a glimpse of some unbeknown lump of matter. Others sift the soil and the slime of the earth’s surface in order to discover something new about the creatures that once roamed the earth. The activities of bats and birds, of the antelope and the ant, of the leopard and the lizard have all been studied at length by men consumed with an interest in such things.

But no man has a desire of himself to examine the sufferings of Christ on the cross. When an invitation is given to consider Calvary, all with one consent begin to make excuse. Read moreor listen using the player below.

Will the real Joel Beeke please stand up??

beekeBelow is a link to an article by Ralph Ovadal entitled: “The Downward Spiral of Dr. Joel Beeke’s Ministries Continues.”

Pastor Ovadal has once again sounded a faithful, fearless warning to the people of God regarding the false claims made for the ministry of Dr Joel Beeke.

Dr Beeke has surpassed Dr Billy Graham in his heyday of duplicity when the likes of Dr Bob Jones Sn sounded forth a warning against his sinful compromises and cooperation with modernists and liberals. Billy Graham did not show sympathy for, share conferences with or support openly the wicked blasphemies of so-called sodomite ‘Christians’!

Ralph Ovadal shows that Dr Beeke has and continues to do just that.

This is an article every minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ should read and pass amongst their flock.

Ivan Foster (Editor).

THE FOOTSTEPS OF PATRICK

A brief account of the work of God in Ireland over the last 1500 years
by 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.”

The history of the Gospel in Ireland begins, to a very real degree, with the story of Patrick. There is much written about Patrick that is entirely fictitious. We can, however, be reasonably sure concerning his faith in Christ and the doctrines that he preached. There exist today two of his writings accepted by all scholars. One is his Confession. From his Confession we learn that his father was a deacon, the son of Potitus, a gospel minister. Where Patrick was actually born is something of a mystery. England, Scotland, Wales and even France all claim to be the place of his birth. In his Confession he tells us that he came from a village called Bonavem Taberniae. Where that village was is difficult now to say. It would appear that the most likely place was somewhere in Roman Britain. Very possibly he came from a place now called Kilpatrick, that is, the ‘Church of Patrick’, near Dumbarten in the Firth of Clyde, in Scotland. Read more…

Ireland before the 17th century plantation

mistThe text of a lecture given at Bangor Free Presbyterian Young People’s meeting by Rev. Ivan Foster

A knowledge of the history of Ireland is a very beneficial and precious thing and that for a number of reasons.

  1. History displays the merciful dealings of God with our forefathers
  2. Such a knowledge will do much to expose the lie of Rome that has bred the spirit of Irish nationalism based upon the myth of a pure Irish race that has ever been fervently Roman Catholic.
  3. It will go far toward removing the feeling of insecurity and of guiltiness at being in Ulster that many Ulster Protestants suffer from as a result of Rome’s persistent lie.

In or Out? The European Debate

UJ_EUBoth pro-EU and anti-EU spokesmen have referred to this debate as the most important for a generation! If they but understood, it will prove to be the most important decision the nation has ever taken in its long and colourful history, so filled with highs and lows, advances and retreats, shame and glory.

1. THE NATION WAS NEVER LESS PREPARED FOR MAKING SUCH A CHOICE
How well prepared is the nation for such a decision? Sadly, it has never been less prepared to decide upon a course to take which will have eternal as well as temporal consequences.
In the past, or at least in the last 500 years, the nation has had the BIBLE to act as its compass and guide and there have been godly men to proclaim fearlessly its TRUTH about the issue that faced the nation. Read more

Editor’s correspondence with ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty

 Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly


Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Back in 2002, I entered into a correspondence in the pages of “The Burning Bush” with a Roman Catholic priest from Belfast. The correspondence arose after I wrote a letter in reply to an article by the priest in “The Belfast Telegraph” of August 24th, 2002.

I was grieved at such a platform being given to the errors and deceptions of Rome and commented on the priest’s article in a letter to “The Belfast Telegraph.”

It will be noted how our two replies to the priest were edited by the ‘Letters Editor’ of “The Belfast Telegraph” before they quickly closed the exchange after two exchanges.

The Word of God was not liked by that ecumenical newspaper back then and it is still the case. Every effort was made to shield and protect the priest of Rome from the rebuke of God’s Word.

We are republishing the correspondence, which continued for eight exchanges, and appeared in “The Burning Bush” from October 2002 until May 2003, because of the publicity given to the ‘warm relationship’ that was manifested between this priest and Pastor James McConnell during the recent trial occasioned by Pastor McConnell’s pulpit statements about Islam. Pastor McConnell asked ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty to speak on his behalf during the trial.

All this “ecumenical camaraderie” between the pastor and the priest may appear to some to give endorsement of the teachings of Rome and it is for this reason we highlight again the errors this priest, like all Roman Catholic clerics, propagates.

Needless to say, it also highlights the folly of James McConnell!

Giving their Kingdoms to the Beast – The Present and Future Course of European Nations

Roman_Empire_Trajan_117ADby Rev. Brian McClung

For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled, Revelation 17:17

Leaving aside the particular details of what David Cameron has negotiated, or not, one overriding truth is very evident, namely, that there is a continuing desire among European nations for the centralising of power. Keeping also in mind that the reality of what has been negotiated will be somewhat different to the ‘spin’ that the Prime Minister and his spin doctors will present to the electorate over coming days, this desire to centralise power will not be given up easily or willingly.

Election of the new moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland

PCI_moderator_2016

Rev. Frank Sellar

An insight into the moral state of that denomination

“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned,” Matthew 12:34-37.

At this time of the year, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, an ecumenical denomination which long has had cordial links to Rome and the other international bodies that make up modern apostate Christendom, holds its annual election to choose the next Moderator of its General Assembly.

Normally, in order to maintain tranquility within its ranks, the office alternates between one who is clearly an ecumenist/liberal and one who is not quite so clearly an evangelical with the emphasis on the ‘jelly’ as Dr Paisley used to say in his heyday! Read more

UNBELIEF and understanding prophecy

bible_image“Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself,” Luke 24:25-27.

I was speaking with a friend the other day about the whole business of prophecy and the opposition mounted against the position held by those of us who simply believe, quite literally, what the Bible teaches about the last days and the return of Christ. In our discussion, I referred to the scene on the “Road to Emmaus” when the two despondent disciples were confronted by the Lord Jesus. As we talked it occurred to me that the Saviour put His finger on the cause of the difficulties the disciples were having with the events surrounding the Saviour’s death and resurrection. He said to them : “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken.” Read more

Rome propagates the devil’s lie ever more brazenly

RC Priest Brian D'Arcy

RC Priest Brian D’Arcy

by Rev Ivan Foster

The British press has been filled with the news of the death of well-known television and radio personality, Sir Terry Wogan. He was born a Roman Catholic in Limerick, in the Irish Republic, in 1938 but he moved to England after a time working for RTE (Raidió Teilifís Éireann) as a newsreader and announcer to work for the BBC in the1960’s. He quickly became a household name, branching into television where he hosted many programmes.

As is invariably the case, there was a rush of people to say how well they knew him, how close they were to him etc, etc. One of those who did so was a Roman Catholic priest from Co. Fermanagh. His name is Brian D’Arcy.

A report of what D’Arcy had to say was given in the “Belfast Telegraph” of January 31st, 2016. The report carried the headline: “Terry Wogan was an atheist but spiritual, says Father Brian D’Arcy”

Why we should love the Jewish people

auschwitzHolocaust Memorial Day 2016.

The substance of two school morning assembly messages given in Kilskeery Independent Christian School, by retired minister and school administrator, Rev Ivan Foster, on 27th and 28th January

“Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed,” Genesis 12:1-3.

It is clear from the first words spoken to Abraham, from whom sprang the Jewish people, that he and his descendants would be those about whom there would a division of opinions. There would be those that would “bless” them and there would be those who would “curse” them!

Those that “bless” them would be blessed of God and those that “cursed” them would be cursed of God.

They were, in heaven’s eyes, a very special people….Read more

Editor’s correspondence with ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty

 Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly


Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Back in 2002, I entered into a correspondence in the pages of “The Burning Bush” with a Roman Catholic priest from Belfast. The correspondence arose after I wrote a letter in reply to an article by the priest in “The Belfast Telegraph” of August 24th, 2002.

I was grieved at such a platform being given to the errors and deceptions of Rome and commented on the priest’s article in a letter to “The Belfast Telegraph.”

It will be noted how our two replies to the priest were edited by the ‘Letters Editor’ of “The Belfast Telegraph” before they quickly closed the exchange after two exchanges.

The Word of God was not liked by that ecumenical newspaper back then and it is still the case. Every effort was made to shield and protect the priest of Rome from the rebuke of God’s Word.

We are republishing the correspondence, which continued for eight exchanges, and appeared in “The Burning Bush” from October 2002 until May 2003, because of the publicity given to the ‘warm relationship’ that was manifested between this priest and Pastor James McConnell during the recent trial occasioned by Pastor McConnell’s pulpit statements about Islam. Pastor McConnell asked ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty to speak on his behalf during the trial.

All this “ecumenical camaraderie” between the pastor and the priest may appear to some to give endorsement of the teachings of Rome and it is for this reason we highlight again the errors this priest, like all Roman Catholic clerics, propagates.

Needless to say, it also highlights the folly of James McConnell!

2016-greetings


Christians bearing the consequences of compromise

volcanoGiven the Saviour’s words in Luke 17:28-30 – “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,” we cannot but take note as we see the same evil atmosphere that characterised the evil cities of the plain springing up around us.

What believers may tolerate, God cannot. Lot lived amongst these evil citizens and raised his family there and seemed bent on continuing in the city had not God’s judgment fallen upon it and the other wicked cities.

Exploits for Christ in the last days

bible_image“ . . . but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits,” Daniel 11:32.

The synopsis of a message preached in Kilskeery Free Presbyterian Church by Rev Ivan Foster at the evening service, January 10th, 2016, in which points he was unable to touch upon in the message are given.

Daniel is a book of prophecy. There is a lot of disputing about what it is that Daniel says. Do not be surprised at that. Disputes surround every doctrine of the Word of God – the new birth, assurance of salvation, the doctrine of the Trinity, the deity of Christ, the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures. These are but a few of the Bible subjects that have been surrounded by disputings ever since God sent forth His Word.
The reason why there are such disputings is easily understood. The devil would seek to sow confusion and spread disbelief in order to rob men of God’s truth and the infinite blessing that may be accrued through believing God.

Prophecy is no exception. When the devil has everyone arguing about the subject, he then whispers, “See, this is such a difficult subject, it is a waste of time to study it!”

Merchandising the Gospel

This is a challenging message by Pastor Ralph Ovadal of “The Heart of the Matter” programme and Pilgrims Covenant Church, Monroe, Wisconsin.

He deals with the issue of the growing practice of conferences featuring “celebrity preachers” charging a fee to those who wish to attend and hear the Word of God.

This practice is in startling contrast to the Saviour’s exhortation in Matthew 10:8: “Freely ye have received, freely give.”

Editor’s correspondence with ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty

 Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Pastor James McConnell and the RC priest Patrick McCafferty with whom he is most friendly

Back in 2002, I entered into a correspondence in the pages of “The Burning Bush” with a Roman Catholic priest from Belfast. The correspondence arose after I wrote a letter in reply to an article by the priest in “The Belfast Telegraph” of August 24th, 2002.

I was grieved at such a platform being given to the errors and deceptions of Rome and commented on the priest’s article in a letter to “The Belfast Telegraph.”

It will be noted how our two replies to the priest were edited by the ‘Letters Editor’ of “The Belfast Telegraph” before they quickly closed the exchange after two exchanges.

The Word of God was not liked by that ecumenical newspaper back then and it is still the case. Every effort was made to shield and protect the priest of Rome from the rebuke of God’s Word.

We are republishing the correspondence, which continued for eight exchanges, and appeared in “The Burning Bush” from October 2002 until May 2003, because of the publicity given to the ‘warm relationship’ that was manifested between this priest and Pastor James McConnell during the recent trial occasioned by Pastor McConnell’s pulpit statements about Islam. Pastor McConnell asked ‘Father’ Patrick McCafferty to speak on his behalf during the trial.

It is timely also since the decision of the judge in that trial is be announced early in January.

All this “ecumenical camaraderie” between the pastor and the priest may appear to some to give endorsement of the teachings of Rome and it is for this reason we highlight again the errors this priest, like all Roman Catholic clerics, propagates.

Needless to say, it also highlights the folly of James McConnell!

Read Part 1 of the exchange here.

CHRISTMAS – The Facts and the Fiction

xmasA look at what many believe to be a ‘Christian Festival’
by Rev. Ivan Foster

Scripture makes clear why the Son of God was born of a woman in Bethlehem nearly 2000 years ago. “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” I John 3:8.

He came to destroy the very works which are the chief means used by the majority in Christendom to celebrate His birth.

‘Christmas’ – a Roman Catholic term referring to a celebratory Mass in honour of Christ – is that section of the year in which pagan activities are freely and unashamedly indulged in and all in honour of the incarnation of the Son of God.

The ambiguities of Pastor James McConnell

Patstor_mcconnellIt is a little disconcerting to say the least to watch Free Presbyterians taking a prominent role in supporting Pastor James McConnell, as he appeared in a Belfast court on the charge of making “grossly offensive” remarks about Islam in his pulpit back in May 2015.

Undoubtedly, ‘Free Speech’ is on trial at this time but that vital issue will be subverted and any support given will be seen as an endorsement of James McConnell and his rather dubious beliefs and practices.

HOW AND WHAT CHRIST WOULD HAVE HIS MINISTERS PREACH TODAY

Reflections on Revelation chapters 2 and 3.

By Rev Ivan Foster (Retd).

bible_imageThe book of the Revelation was penned by John under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost at the end of the 1st century AD i.e. some 1900 years ago.

The essential character of Christianity, its message, its philosophy and its code of conduct, NEVER CHANGES for its “author and finisher” is Christ the unchanging and unchangeable One.

As we briefly consider something of these two chapters in Revelation it is essential that we, and preachers especially, bear this in mind.

These two chapters contain messages to the seven churches in Asia: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea. These churches were all in the area which we now call Turkey.

The messages were direct communications from the ‘Great King and Head of the Church, the Lord Jesus Christ.’

They were intimate and detailed, indicating the knowledge the Saviour has of His people.

That in itself should cause us to tremble. The favourite lie of the devil is that “The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it,” Psalm 94:7. These chapters show that to be a great deception!

I have but three main points which I desire to make and they are directed chiefly at ministers today.

Can Mervyn Storey’s actions in heading a Stormont Department which funds sodomy and blasphemy be defended or excused?

stormontMervyn Storey remains an elder in the Free Presbyterian Church, despite his links with recent controversies regarding the funding of ungodly activities, activities which are deeply offensive and blasphemous.

That would suggest that there are those who believe that what he did was without sin and involves no transgression of God’s Word.

There has been no public response by Storey to criticisms of his actions in these matters. Nor, indeed, have any of those who have gone “from house to house” tattling out empty, spurious excuses for the man, had the courage to openly answer the case made against him.

Of course, this was the pattern adopted by those who sought to defend poor Dr Paisley’s decision to enter a power-sharing government with Sinn Fein/IRA back in 2007.

Such a tactic is in itself an unwitting admission of the weakness of their case.

“TOUCHING THE UNCLEAN THING”

dirty_handsWhy does Dr Joel Beeke’s Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary share accreditation with Roman Catholic colleges??

An interesting fact regarding Dr Joel Beeke’s Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary has just come to light, thanks to research done by the Editors of “Banash” website, Sharon Kirker and Marie O’Prey.

The Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary has received accreditation from ‘The Association of Theological Schools’.

The Association website has this ‘blurb’ by way of introduction to just what it is.

“More than 270 graduate schools of theology in the United States and Canada form The Association of Theological Schools. Member schools conduct post-baccalaureate professional and academic degree programs to educate persons for the practice of ministry and for teaching and research in the theological disciplines.

“The Outburst Arts Festival made an application for funding from the Belfast City Centre Event Grant Scheme for a festival that is running from the 13 – 21 November 2015 with events taking place in various venues across the City. The application was assessed by Departmental officials against set criteria and an offer of funding was made. The grant was not specific to any particular event within the festival programme.”

Here is an admission by the Minster that his Department did fund the ‘Festival’ which included the blasphemous ‘Gospel according to Jesus Queen of Heaven’!!!

The Minister for Social Development is Mervyn Storey MLA, a Free Presbyterian elder!!!

Thus we have the tragic situation of the Free Presbyterian Government and Morals Committee condemning this wickedness while a member of that Presbytery heads a Department in Stormont that is helping to finance that very wickedness!

This is the situation that compromise, silence, fear and a ‘stick your head in the sand’ attitude toward the sin of power-sharing with the IRA has brought us.

It is time for ordinary Free Presbyterian members to make their views known to Presbytery on this shameful situation.

“Howbeit I sent unto you all my servants the prophets, rising early and sending them, saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate,” Jeremiah 44:4.

Rev Ivan Foster (Rtr)
18th November, 2015.

UPDATE

Below is a response to a further question asked by Jim Allister MLA of the Minister for Social Development, Mr Mervyn Storey.

Subject: Written Answer AQW 50866/11-16 – Outburst Queer Arts Festival

To ask the Minister for Social Development (i) what funding his Department and its arm’s-length bodies have provided to Outburst Queer Arts Festival; (ii) to outline the purpose of such funding; and (iii) what funding went towards the staging of The Gospel According to Jesus Queen of Heaven.

In response to the three questions you raised in relation to the Outburst Queer Arts Festival I would advise as follows:
My Department has provided grant funding of £3.5k towards the cost of the 2015 festival.
This grant was a contribution towards the overall costs for venue hire and artists fees for the festival.
This grant was not offered for any specific event within the festival programme.

So, £3500 of public money was paid by Mr Storey’s department to aid a festival which included the wicked depiction of the Lord Jesus Christ as a “transexual”!!! It is beyond belief that a professing Christian can be guilty of such a betrayal of the Lord Jesus by aiding to any degree this vile, unspeakable blasphemy.

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty,” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

Protest at blasphemous play

The letter below is from the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster Government and Morals Committee protesting against a blasphemous play in Belfast.

The newspapers to which it was sent did not print it!!

Dear sir,
Your paper on Monday contained the details of a theatre production. This production is a blatant blasphemous attack on the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ and deeply offensive to the Christian community.
Blasphemy is defined as the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God.
The Bible declares in Revelation 17:14 that Jesus Christ is “Lord of lords and King of kings” but the title of this play links the name of Jesus with the phrase “queen of heaven”. This deliberate inaccuracy is irreverent and, as such, blasphemous.

The content of the play displays the Lord Jesus Christ as being transgender while the teaching of the Bible leaves no doubt that this view is false.
The Lord Jesus Christ is eternally named the “Son of God”, we think of the well known text of Scripture in John 3:16 and we read of the “only begotten Son”.
In regard to the incarnation of Christ, words are often quoted from Luke 1:35 when Mary is told “that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God”.
At the time of the crucifixion, we read that the title “King of the Jews” was displayed by Pontus Pilate.
To invent another Jesus is an attempt to present another god and another way of salvation. Christ clearly stated in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

In an interview with “The Scotsman” in 2009 the writer of this play stated that the production was “about rescuing Jesus from the fundamentalists”. The Lord Jesus Christ does not need to be rescued. He came to “seek and to save” those who are ensnared in a life of sin. This is a universal condition but the same means of salvation is available to all, for we read in Romans 10:13 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Festival director Ruth McCarthy states, “the christian values of love, tolerance and understanding are at the forefront of this piece.” However, she is deeply mistaken in that view.
When the Lord Jesus Christ spoke of love, He said “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.” You cannot love God if you blaspheme His name and person. Rather, we should live in obedience to His commands.

To display such a production is grievous in the sight of a holy God and shows no regard for the many Bible-believing Christians in this land. Therefore we call upon the organisers to stop this event.

Yours sincerely
Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster Government and Morals Committee

“Prophetic Truth maintained from the Apostles until now”

Synopsis of a message preached at Kilskeery Annual Conference on Saturday 31st October, 2015,

by Rev Brian McClung (Newtownabbey Free Presbyterian Church)

“Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus…But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them.” 2 Timothy 1:13, 3:14

There were ‘things’ which Paul taught Timothy which he wanted this young man to ‘hold fast’ and to ‘continue…in’.

Among these ‘sound words’ or doctrines, that Paul preached and taught, are references to the second coming of Jesus Christ to this earth. “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come,” 2 Timothy 3:1. See also 2 Timothy 4:1,8. “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom, . . . . . . Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”

Remember, remember the 5th of November!

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.” Isaiah 54:17

This day is notable in English history for two great deliverances wrought by God for us. On this day the plot of the Papists to destroy our Houses of Parliament was discovered, 1605.

“While for our princes they prepare
In caverns deep a burning snare,
He shot from heaven a piercing ray,
And the dark treachery brought to day.”

And secondly-to-day is the anniversary of the landing of King William III, at Torbay, by which the hope of Popish ascendancy was quashed, and religious liberty was secured, 1688.

This day ought to be celebrated, not by the saturnalia of striplings, but by the songs of saints. Our Puritan forefathers most devoutly made it a special time of thanksgiving. There is extant a record of the annual sermons preached by Matthew Henry on this day. Our Protestant feeling, and our love of liberty, should make us regard its anniversary with holy gratitude. Let our hearts and lips exclaim, “We have heard with our ears, and our fathers have told us the wondrous things which thou didst in their day, and in the old time before them.” Thou hast made this nation the home of the gospel; and when the foe has risen against her, thou hast shielded her. Help us to offer repeated songs for repeated deliverances. Grant us more and more a hatred of Antichrist, and hasten on the day of her entire extinction. Till then and ever, we believe the promise, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.” Should it not be laid upon the heart of every lover of the gospel of Jesus on this day to plead for the overturning of false doctrines and the extension of divine truth? Would it not be well to search our own hearts, and turn out any of the Popish lumber of self-righteousness which may lie concealed therein?

Same-sex marriage statement

Statement from the Government and Morals Committee of the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster on the Northern Ireland Assembly debate on “Same-Sex Marriage.”

(As it appeared in the ‘Belfast Newsletter’ of November 2nd, 2015)

“For the fifth time in the space of three years the redefinition of marriage is to be debated in the Northern Ireland assembly, under the guise of it being a matter of equality.

It is very interesting to note the comment made by the NIHRC in their submission to the Legislative Consent Motion in 2013. They said:

“The jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights (ECt.HR) and the United Nations Human Rights Committee (HRC) has confirmed that the restriction of the institution of marriage to opposite sex couples is not in violation of international human rights standards.”

So here are two international bodies mentioned and they say it is NOT an issue of equality, it is NOT a right!

Some would also say that we are falling behind the rest of the world and are dinosaurs but according to the statistics less than 10% of the member states in the UN have redefined marriage.

What we are witnessing is part of a liberal agenda to force Northern Ireland into redefining marriage despite the view of its people. Gerry Adams described equality as the “Trojan horse” and the Labour’s Ivan Lewis, the Shadow Northern Ireland Secretary said, “my party believes the government should give serious consideration to introduce legislation at Westminster to extend same-sex marriage to Northern Ireland”, in other words it should be forced upon Northern Ireland.

These views have little to do with rights or equality, rather it is one group wanting to ride rough-shod over everyone else with a differing opinion, regardless of the impact that it may have on children, families or society.

When we consider the treatment of Ashers Baking Company and any who challenge the LGBT agenda, Bible believing Christians are left feeling that they dare not express their dearly held opinions or they will be accused of hate crimes or will become the subject of a media witch hunt.

As a Denomination we hold to the Scriptural definition of marriage as that of one man and one woman for as long as they both shall live (Genesis 2:24, Mark 10:6-9). We believe that this is God’s pattern for the well-being of family life, in the bringing up of children and for the good of society at large. A deviation from this godly pattern has no benefits but rather will be the forerunner of more broken homes and broken lives.

Any sexual relationship outside of the marriage bond is contrary to the law of God and is sinful. This is not to be construed as hatred against the individual rather it is love that warns them of the consequences of such conduct for by the words of Paul we learn that there were those in his congregation who had been saved and changed from such lifestyles. (1 Cor 6:9-11).”
