The footsteps of Patrick
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.” Read more…
Ireland before the seventeenth century plantation
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.

There are times when as Christians we look around and wonder. The state of the church and nation is so weak and we ourselves are little better. What can we do but cry out to God? The UK presently faces one of the most serious challenges to our society, the re-definition of marriage to turn it into an abomination. The Government proposes to allow the attempted joining together of two men or two women to be called a marriage. Read more…
Is there a way for terrorist murderers to obtain “forgiveness for their past”?
A recent news story in the Belfast “News Letter” (29th February) carried the headlines: ‘Former IRA men ‘seeking forgiveness for their past’. It featured a report on the work of the ‘Crossfire Trust’ in South Armagh. It is funded by The International Fund for Ireland, an organisation set up by the British and Irish governments in 1986. It would be correct to say that it is an ecumenical organisation which has the objective of combatting sectarianism.
The article also featured a lengthy statement by a man the newspaper termed “a south Armagh peacemaker”, Mr Ian Bothwell. He has been involved in community work in south Armagh since the late 1970s. Mr Bothwell’s “Crossfire Trust” website makes reference to his desire to remind the people of South Armagh of “God and His love for them”.
However, in the “Newsletter” article, Mr Bothwell’s proposal for “a new way forward between paramilitaries and victims in the area” is clearly a social and political solution to the murderers’ anxiety. Read more…
