Abortion Referendum in the Republic of Ireland

The government of the Republic of Ireland has confirmed that the national referendum on changing abortion law will be held on Friday, 25th May 2018.

The referendum will centre around the Eighth Amendment of the Irish constitution. Voters will decide if they want to make changes to Republic's strict abortion laws.

Below is a link to a sermon preached in 2007 to mark the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act being introduced in mainland United Kingdom. Thankfully that iniquitous Abortion Act has never been extended to Northern Ireland. 

Also included is a link to an earlier post on this Blog which contains some Scriptural Observations on the issue of Abortion. These form the basis of the sermon.

Mary Magdalene

A film entitled Mary Magdalene has recently been released in the United Kingdom. This film claims to be a biblical drama about the woman of the same name who is referenced a number of times in the Word of God in connection with the life, ministry and death of Jesus Christ.

This film portrays Mary as a fiercely intelligent, resourceful woman who rejected the norms of being married and having children and instead insisted on following Jesus of Nazareth. This was what caused her to be, at least initially, condemned as being possessed with seven devils.

Which is more important - a film depiction of Mary Magdalene or a Scriptural portrait of this woman?

This sermon considers what the Word of God has to say about Mary Magdalene.

Sinn Fein/IRA don't like being questioned about their terrorist past

A RTE* presenter Miriam O'Callaghan is under attack from Sinn Fein/IRA for putting tough questions to the late Martin McGuinness about his links to IRA killings.

The Prime Time broadcaster's work has been described as "utterly repulsive" by the new party leader of Sinn Fein, Mary Lou McDonald.

The attack on the "southern media" comes amid allegations in Northern Ireland that Sinn Fein is trying to censor the media. The party denies orchestrating a campaign to boycott the Stephen Nolan Show on BBC NI, and criticised U105 presenter Frank Mitchell after he indicated his support for the Northern Ireland football team.

The Eulogising of an Unrepentant Terrorist Continues

A portrait of the unrepentant terrorist Martin McGuinness has been unveiled at Stormont, one day after the anniversary of the former deputy first minister's death. It will hang in the same corridors as a painting of former Northern Ireland first minister Ian Paisley.

McGuinness's family attended the unveiling along with unionist leaders such as Peter Robinson and Arlene Foster. 

Read here: BBC News - Martin McGuinness portrait unveiled at Stormont

It is utterly sickening to see the continued eulogising of an unrepentant terrorist. As someone commented about McGuinness "The gravestones are monument enough". 

It is even more grieving when unionist leaders join in with this eulogising of an unrepentant terrorist and defend their attendance. It is little wonder unionism is in such a sorry state when it is led by those so lacking in principle.
Stephen Gault, who was injured himself in the Enniskillen bombing which also killed his father has said he is “sickened by the glorification” of former IRA commander Martin McGuinness.

Another example of Rome's sordid past

Rev McIlveen says the Pope is not welcome in Northern Ireland

Rev David McIlveen, retired Free Presbyterian minister, has spoken out against any proposed papal visit to Northern Ireland. Rev McIlveen said that Pope Francis is “not welcome” in Northern Ireland until he condemns clerical child abuse in the Province. 

Rev McIlveen felt a visit by the Pope to Northern Ireland would not be appropriate in light of the recent revelations regarding paedophile priest Malachy Finnegan, who was accused of abusing 12 boys at St Colman’s College in Newry.

Rev McIlveen told BBC’s The Nolan Show this morning: “It is important at this particular juncture in the Roman Catholic Church, with so much clerical abuse, that the church gets its own house in order.

Free Presbyterian Church statement in light of the Pope's Visit to the Republic of Ireland

“At a meeting of its General Presbytery in March 2018 the Free Presbytery Church of Ulster unanimously approved the following statement should the Pope’s itinerary in Ireland incorporate a visit to Northern Ireland:

‘As reformed evangelical Protestants we totally reject the arrogant and, more importantly, unscriptural titles, claims and teachings of the pope. While, in obedience to Scripture and out of love for the souls of men, we cannot welcome this proposed visit, it will present us with a challenge to highlight the contrast between the teaching of scripture and the false doctrines of the papacy. Our supreme aim and overriding concern is to exalt the only King and Head of the church, the Lord Jesus Christ. To this end we continue to call all people, of all denominations and none, to a personal faith in Christ the Saviour as the only mediator between God and men’.”

Rev. Ian Brown
Clerk, Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster

What Kind of Atheist are You?

There are at least three types of atheist mentioned in the Word of God. This sermon preached in Newtownabbey Free Presbyterian Church explores the question: what type of atheist are you?

It is based upon the words of Psalm 14:1: The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Interesting Corroboration for the Existence of Jesus Christ in the Annals of Imperial Rome

The 'spade of archaeology' often digs up corroborating evidence for the existence of Jesus Christ and reality of Christianity. The Daily Express is currently reporting details that have been unearthed in the annals of the Roman historian Tacitus.

Tacitus who was born around AD54 is regarded as one of the best historians of the Roman era. He mentions Jesus Christ in his Annals which cover the years 14 - 66 AD. These annals record the efforts of Nero to lay the blame for the Great Fire of Rome, which took place in 64 AD, on those called ‘Christians’.

Tacitus then proceeds to give some background history on Jesus Christ, who is called Christus, the Christians and even Pontius Pilate, who had sentenced Jesus Christ to death.

Compromise of Billy Graham

More than 2,000 mourners, including President Donald Trump,  attended the funeral of Dr Billy Graham in North Carolina on Saturday past.

Following his death just over a week ago, at the age of 99, Billy Graham became only the fourth private American citizen, and the first religious leader, in the history of the United States, to lie in repose in the Capitol building in Washington DC.

Below is a link to a sermon preached in Newtownabbey Free Presbyterian Church on Lord's day evening 4th March on the Compromise of Billy Graham, highlighting the truths he no longer wanted to emphasis in his ministry.

Barnardos Ireland rebuked for teaming up with Gerry Adams on ‘lost childhood campaign’

Barnardos Ireland are facing criticism, and rightly so, after teaming up with Sinn Fein’s Gerry Adams to promote its “Lost Childhood Campaign”.

Critics are accusing the charity of gross insensitivity due to the number of children murdered and traumatised by the party’s military wing, the IRA.

World Book Day - Books which push a sinful lifestyle.

During World Book Day, was the 1st March this year, children and young people have the opportunity to obtain and use book tokens to develop their literacy skills.

Sadly this year the organisers have used two authors who are homosexual. One of these authors, Clare Balding, uses the opportunity to condition children to accepting this sinful agenda by including reference to a homosexual couple in the storyline in one of these books available to young children. The book in question is The Girl Who Thought She Was A Dog.

Books that Encouraged Children to Question their Gender

World Book Day was Thursday 1st March. No opportunity is ever to be missed by those who desire to push a sinful lifestyle to influence the young and the vulnerable. 

Books made available for young people in nurseries and primary schools across the United Kingdom in recent weeks and months have encouraged children to question their gender.

Nursery school children as young as three are being exposed to characters who are unsure about their gender by a Government-funded Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender charity.
