Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey suggests slight increase in support for Irish unity and cross-community support for abortion reform

Here is a link to data, send to me by a Christian friend, that clearly suggests that the DUP are moving more and more to a secular position on moral matters and rejecting what the Bible teaches on abortion – which is in truth, the ‘murder of unborn children’!

May the Lord in mercy awaken Free Presbyterian supporters of this increasingly anti-Bible political party and cause them to obey God and no longer deny the stand of the FPC and the teaching of the Word of God.

The DUP and Ulster Unionists have missed numerous opportunities to point out that republican conduct made power sharing indefensible

This letter, which appeared in the “Belfast Newsletter” of January 3rd, touches upon the matter which is assiduously avoided by the two ‘unionist’ parties.

Both have ceased to treat Sinn Fein/IRA for what they are – enemies of Northern Ireland who will use any means to destroy it and bring about a united Ireland.

The DUP representative, ’Sir’ Jeffrey Donaldson, was recently interviewed on television in the presence of sinn Feiner and convicted IRA terrorist, Gerry Kelly. Despite Kelly’s blatantly deceitful republican propaganda, spouted automaton-like when he was interviewed, Donaldson made no attempt to confront his lies. To do so, of course, ‘might cause a split’ so ‘doormat’ Donaldson remained silent!!

May the Lord save us from enemies and traitors!

The fires in Australia and its laws on same-sex marriage and abortion – Is there a link?

The Bible throughout its divinely inspired pages states most clearly that there is an indissoluble link between sin and God’s judgment!
An Australian footballer, Israel Folau, was the subject of much abuse for stating that there was a link between the bush fires which have devastated large areas of Australia and caused the deaths of an increasing number of people, and the nation’s adoption of same-sex marriage laws and the legalising of abortion.

He was absolutely correct in this matter! The Bible states and history shows that sin is ALWAYS followed by God’s judgment! Read more

Is ‘sodomy’ just another sin????

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly,” 2 Peter 2:6.

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire,” Jude 7.

It has been said by members of the Democratic Unionist Party, in an effort to defend and excuse the Party’s decision to support and endorse a sodomite as one of their candidates in the Local Government elections in May 2019, that ‘sodomy is just another sin and if we are to throw out all who sin in the DUP we would be left with no one!’

This sounds very plausible, especially when stated by a lawyer! However, like the ‘lawyers’ whom Christ encountered, this one also comes under the condemnation He issued against them. “But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God . . . ,” Luke 7:30. Read more
