A ‘New Step’ – DOWNWARD!!!
Further evidence of the DUP’s pandering to that cursed of God!
The headline below, which appeared in the ‘Belfast Telegraph’ of 5th July, was drawn to my attention late last evening.
The article that it adorns illustrates afresh the slide of the DUP away from God’s Word and into the depths of wicked defiance of God.
The movement represented by the initialism, LGBTQ+, is a concoction of moral corruption and deviance, the members of which openly and unashamedly debase themselves by flaunting their spiritual delinquency and in consequence are defined by the Lord as ‘given up’ and given “over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient (fitting).” They are called ‘haters of God’, (Romans 1:26, 28, 30).
Such degenerates the DUP is prepared to more and more embrace and endorse their evil campaign of debauched rebellion.
Now there are those in the DUP who do not agree with such associations. Of this I have no doubt. But when the party leader wholeheartedly welcomes and encourages such an evil alliance, then it has to be said such is the ‘established’ policy of the party and all who are in membership are tainted with this wickedness before God.
It is a Biblical truth that those who remain within a corrupt and evil organisation become guilty before God of the crimes of those with whom they company and will share in the judgment that must follow.
Heed these words as an example of what I say!
“And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double,” Revelation 18:1-6.
The LGBTQ+ is a rapidly growing spectacle that has been welcomed by most political and apostate religious leaders. But this evil spreading plague must be seen as the harbinger of the wrath of God falling upon a godless world! Such a truth as this is mocked at by buffoons and numbskulls and, it must be said, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson and Pam Cameron are but two such rejectors of God’s truth within the DUP.
However, God’s judgment upon wicked sinners is a cardinal doctrine of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is written: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death,” Revelation 21:8.
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead,” Acts 17:30-31.
Those who profess to believe the Gospel and to love and obey the Saviour, cannot escape the judgment of God if they blind themselves to the guilt they bring upon themselves by persisting in remaining amongst those who will be targeted by God.
Feeble excuses in an attempt to wash their hands, Pilate-like, will NOT absolve those who remain faithful to the DUP when it openly, brazenly challenges God by supporting those whom the Lord has repudiated and declared to be ‘given up’ to wrath.
It is time to heed the challenge of the words of Joshua: “Choose you this day whom ye will serve,” Joshua 24:15.
Please Christian, respond to such a challenge as did Ruth to the incitement she faced from her mother-in-law Naomi, to return to her pagan family.
“And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law. And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me,” Ruth 1:15-17.
Follow Ruth and stand on the side of those who believe the Bible and who love Christ and turn away from the company of the Bible-rejectors!
There are no two ways about this matter. Those who love the Lord and are truly His, will break all links with those who hate Him and identify themselves with the ranks of those who genuinely love Him!
“By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible,” Hebrews 11:24-27.
Think on these words please, dear Christian who is yet within the ranks of this rebellious party which is ever more determined to defy God.
Read this newspaper report and be ashamed of having ANY LINKS with those who shout from the rooftops their insubordinate spurning of God’s truth.

DUP’s Pam Cameron to take part in LGBTQ+ event alongside leaders of NI’s other main political parties
July 05 2022.
Representatives from each of Northern Ireland’s five main political parties will partake in an LGBTQ+ media event on Wednesday, including the DUP’s Pam Cameron.
PinkNews, a UK-based online newspaper marketed to the local lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, confirmed the panellists that will be attending its summer reception at Stormont tomorrow. Michelle O’Neill, deputy vice president of Sinn Fein and leader of the party in Northern Ireland, will join the Alliance Party’s Naomi Long, SDLP’s Colum Eastwood and Ulster Unionist Doug Beattie – all leaders of their own parties – alongside DUP South Antrim MLA, Pam Cameron, at the two-hour conference in Belfast’s Parliament Buildings.
While the DUP’s Sir Jeffrey Donaldson appears to be the only party leader to not attend the panel, the inclusion of his colleague Ms Cameron marks a new step for the party, who in the past have often faced criticism from the LGBTQ+ community for their stance against gay marriage in NI. Ahead of the recent Assembly elections, an article published by PinkNews remarked that “a Sinn Fein victory in Northern Ireland could spell much-needed change for the LGBTQ+ community”.
Sinn Fein of course did go on to win the most seats at the election for the first time in Northern Ireland’s history, and the piece noted that “the DUP’s decline probably doesn’t have much to do with the party’s staunch opposition to LGBTQ+ rights – it’s likely more to do with the Northern Irish protocol and Brexit – but the result could still have a positive impact on queer people”. It added that the party has done “little to win support” from the queer community since it was founded by Ian Paisley in 1971, with the late reverend’s “Save Ulster from Sodomy” campaign arguing that homosexuality should continue to be criminalised because the Bible said it was a sin.
In more recent times, the DUP has been seen attempting to make amends, with deputy leader Paula Bradley remarking last week that some of the things said by party colleagues in the past had been “absolutely atrocious”.
The former North Belfast MLA made the comments during an online event which was also hosted by PinkNews and she added that previous views from her party members “fed into the hatred” endured by LGBT people.
Sir Jeffrey Donaldson backed Ms Bradley’s apology during an appearance on the BBC’s Good Morning Ulster programme on Friday.
However, former DUP politician Jim Wells responded that “the vast majority of comments that have been made by public representatives of the Democratic Unionist Party on this issue have been measured, they have been sensible and they have been reflective of the views of a large number of people in Northern Ireland”.
He said he did not believe Ms Bradley was speaking for the whole of the party and insisted that he himself “had nothing to apologise for”. Wednesday’s PinkNews summer reception will see party representatives joined by speeches from the organisation’s CEO, Benjamin Cohen, partners of the reception CitiBank and charity partner The Rainbow Project, which promotes the health and wellbeing of the LGBT people and their families in Northern Ireland.
