History Without the Humbug – Countering the Re-Writing of History
The Media Myth and Global Cult of Nelson Mandela,
by Shaun Willcock
The ugly truth about the world’s favourite terrorist-turned-politician, Nelson Mandela, has been buried deep beneath the media-created myth of the man, who for decades was given such a whitewashing by the liberal/Socialist media that the real Mandela disappeared from the world’s eyes, and in his place appeared a messiah, a saviour, a demigod, whose only resemblance to the real Mandela was the outer shell. The man who emerged from prison and became president of South Africa was at heart the same man who had gone into prison so many years before, a Communist revolutionary, much older but just as committed to the ideology and the revolution as he had been when the prison gates slammed shut on him. Yet by the time he emerged from prison, the worldwide liberal/leftist media had repackaged him, presenting him to the world as a wise, big-hearted, moderate, decent man, who had been unjustly imprisoned for his stand against apartheid, and who would, when he became president of South Africa, govern this complex and diverse country with wisdom and magnanimity, creating a wonderful earthly paradise where all would live happily ever after.

What is ‘Christian Rap’ & ‘Holy Hip Hop’ music?
An article by Rev Brian McClung of Newtownabbey Free Presbyterian Church.
‘Christian Rap’ is a form of music that comes from the ‘Holy Hip Hop’ music culture. ‘Holy Hip Hop’ in turn comes from this secular ‘Hip Hop’ music culture. ‘Rap’ music is closely associated with the ‘Hip Hop’ music culture.
This particular style of music came out of the gangland culture of New York city in the 1970s, when ‘Block Parties’ became increasingly popular, particularly among African American youth residing in the Bronx. Click here to read more…
“Failing to protect Sunday as non North West race day erodes Christian principles”
Letter by Free Presbyterian minister on the subject of the further desecration of the Christian Sabbath.
“As a Christian Minister I am saddened that many within our government, some of whom are professing Christians themselves, have not actively sought means to safeguard a fundamental principle which is based solidly in the Word of God.” Read more…
The NCFIC and a Firestorm of Controversy over Rap
Recently a firestorm of outrage, including even charges of racism, erupted over the remarks made against rap “music” during a panel discussion at a conference of the National Center for Family-Integrated Churches (NCFIC). The controversy prompted a flurry of apologies, including one from Dr. Joel Beeke.
Pastor Ovadal gives some perspective on those apologies, but perhaps even more importantly, sounds a warning concerning the unfaithful, corrupt nature of the NCFIC. This is the issue which has truly been neglected in the recent controversy.
The Church of Rome is in truth a pagan system with a thin veneer of “Christianity” as the following incident illustrates adequately
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration (wonderment, astonishment, amazement),” Revelation 17:4-6.
Free Presbyterian supporters of Dr Joel Beeke – Its time to waken up!!!!
The following article is taken from Pastor Ralph Ovadal’s website. It should alarm every believer who has a concern for the honour of God and the truth of the gospel. It should especially send a shiver down the spines of those who have stubbornly refused to give any credence to the alarm calls issued for some time now regarding the direction taken by Dr Joel Beeke.
It is pretty clear that Dr Beeke cares very little for those few “loyal” supporters from the United Kingdom, and others like them across the world, who are insignificant when compared to the very much larger and financially lucrative “rapper”, “new Calvinist” bloc out there in “New Evangelical land”!!
Surely the end of the garden path has been reached and it is time for a humble turning around!!
“ . . . . having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage,” Jude 1:16.
The substance of a sermon preached on Lord’s Day 23rd December 2001, 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…

Has Dr. Joel Beeke Finally Left Refo500?
A Response by Pastor Ovadal and Rev. Foster
We have been asked by more than one person if we know that Dr. Joel Beeke has left Refo500. To our knowledge, Dr. Beeke has not publically uttered a single word to that effect, though it does not mean that he has not left Refo500. Read more…
What is apostasy and how should we react to it?
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not,” 2 Peter 2:1-3.
The Lord’s battle against apostasy is of long standing. It is almost as old as time itself. Many Christians tend to believe that the controversy with “apostasy” began with the emergence of the modern “Ecumenical Movement” and its campaign for church unity which metamorphosed into a movement for the unity of all religions.
In truth, the Lord’s controversy with apostasy began with the devil’s rebellion in heaven when he sought to establish himself as a rival, a conqueror of the Lord, overthrowing Him and replacing His rule with his own. Read more…
Pope Francis tells of hopes for ‘a better world’ – (What saith the Scriptures? “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. . . . evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived,” 2 Timothy 3:1, 13.)
