The Christian who believes in and practises ‘Biblical separation’ from those who reject the teaching of the Bible and those Christians who maintain fellowship with such rejectors, are labelled unloving, lacking in ‘Christian charity’ by their opponents!

But, as it was with Paul who likewise suffered such abuse from those whose wrongs and sins he rebuked, it is not the ‘separatist’ who lacks love but those who refuse to separate from evil.

Paul says to those who opposed him in Corinth, “O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels,” 2 Corinthians 6:11-12.

There was no ‘narrowness’ in Paul’s love for them but there was a definite ‘straightening’ of their hearts toward him. Read more

A picture of the State Education system!

“And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD,” Leviticus 18:21.

What I am about to say in this article will, I fear, annoy and anger some!

Those who feel displeased at what I say, may I just remind them all that the Lord Jesus in His first sermon recorded by Luke, so irked all of His hearers that they tried to murder Him! “And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. But he passing through the midst of them went his way,” Luke 4:28-30. I am sure that I will not vex all who read this article but I am anxious to appeal to those who may be upset that they evaluate just what it that I have said that annoys them! Read more


A message preached by Rev. Foster on September 5th, 1993.

Why there is a reluctance by many Church of Ireland clerics to affirm their belief in Article 31 of the 39 Articles of Religion.

“Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty,” Judges 5:23

The 39 Articles of Religion form the doctrinal basis of Anglicanism. They were first compiled in 1562, finally replacing the Articles compiled in the reign of Henry VIII. Henry’s Articles grew out of the confusion of doctrine that was being preached in the land at that time of reformation and upheaval. Henry sent a circular to all the bishops on 12th July 1536, forbidding all preaching until Michaelmas (September 29th) by which time articles of religion would be set down as a doctrinal guideline. The king himself drew up the articles which were duly agreed by both houses of the Anglican Convocation. They were anything but Biblical and were filled with popish superstition. Baptismal regeneration, transubstantiation, purgatory, prayers to saints, holy water, the sign of the cross, kissing the cross and images as part of worship were all sanctioned by Henry’s Articles. In 1552, Archbishop Cranmer and Bishop Ridley compiled 42 articles which, after an examination by bishops and learned men, were reviewed by Cranmer and Ridley and ratified by King Edward VII. These articles became the basis of the present 39 Articles. Read more and listen...

“And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment,” John 16:8.

Mr Ronnie McLean, when preaching from Acts 1:8 on the subject of ‘The Infilling of the Holy Spirit’ in Kilskeery on the Lord’s Day morning, 9th September, in his introduction to his subject, referred to John 16:8.

As I looked it up I was struck by what is a declaration of war by the Holy Ghost against the spirit and ethos of this world in which we live.

Holy Ghost holiness is the very opposite to all that is in the world. This idea is totally alien to all those today who claim to enjoy the fulness of the Holy Spirit’s power and grace, but whose way of life is very evidently not opposed to the ways of the world!

The ‘worship’ services, the mode of dress, the general appearance and behaviour of the modern ‘Pentecostalist’ are utterly worldly. Far from a spirit of reverential fear of God in their services there is the air of a circus, a centre for worldly entertainment. This they decidedly promote. It is not something into which they have carelessly declined but rather pointedly advance and nurture! The ‘minister’ is attired in the most casual of clothing – usually jeans and an open neck shirt! There is little order observed during the ‘service’, with people going and coming and drinking coffee etc!

This they would have us know is “Holy Spirit Christianity”!! Read more
