The following links will take you to videos of two talks I gave in Braehill Baptist Church on 24th and 25th May 2018. The preceding night a guest speaker had given a talk on “perilous times” and on the Sunday after my talks another guest speaker spoke on the coming ‘one-world religion’. In context, my two talks were very relevant as they certainly illustrate the “perilous times” we are living in and show how Rome is very much to the fore when it comes to ‘one-world religion’.

This is the link to my talk on ‘ECUMENISM’

NB When listing certain churches, I inadvertently referred to ‘Lisbellaw Baptist’ – I should have said ‘Lisbellaw Methodist’ whose minister at the time was a good friend, the late Tom Bodel.

This is the link to my talk on ‘THE PAPACY’

Since around the mid 1990’s it would appear that Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) has become increasingly ambivalent (indecisive) where Roman Catholicism is concerned. 

An article posted on

gives helpful information on how DTS reacted to the 1994 ‘Evangelicals and
Catholics Together’ document and it could be described as ‘wishy-washy’.
The relevant portion is found under the heading
‘Institutional Issues’.

The same section also draws attention to the invitation by DTS to a Roman Catholic, William Bennett, to be a guest speaker at their 75th anniversary celebrations held in 1999.

The Reformation Talks


Last year I spoke in quite a number of churches/fellowships to mark what many considered to be the 500th anniversary of The Reformation on 31st October 2017. This short article will give links to the talks I gave in Newbuildings Independent Methodist Church on Friday and Saturday, 27th & 28th October 2017.

The first talk dealt with

(1) Reasons for The Reformation
(2) Reaction to The Reformation.

The second talk dealt with

(3) Reversal of The Reformation
(4) Rejoicing in The Reformation.

Cecil Andrews – ‘Take Heed’ Ministries – 23 January 2018




Many years ago, friends and fellow-contenders living in The Netherlands sent me videos of a large 1998 gathering held by Rome in Holland to celebrate ‘Mary: Lady of all Nations’. This is just one of the many baseless and unscriptural titles ascribed by the Roman Catholic religion to Mary. In this article, I want to focus upon a claimed ‘Eucharistic Miracle’ that is detailed in the opening portion of the first video and so to begin with here is a link to enable you to watch that portion of the video –

Having watched the video, you perhaps now understand why I included the phrase ‘Hard to stomach!’ as a subtitle to this article. This supposed ‘miracle’ centres totally around the claim that a sick man, who had received a Roman Catholic ‘consecrated wafer’, later vomited it up and, despite having been thrown in the fire, it refused to be destroyed but instead was ‘reconstituted’ and ‘danced’ above the flames of the fire next morning.

Back in 1998 when ROB ZINS was my guest here to take part in various meetings that I had arranged for him we were also joined for a few days by a friend of Rob’s called TIM KAUFFMAN. Tim, like Rob, had been raised as a Roman Catholic but he like Rob had been gloriously saved and converted. Tim and Rob had co-operated in the publication of books by Rob under the ‘auspices’ of ‘White Horse Publications’.

During his years as a practising Roman Catholic TIM had been particularly drawn to ‘Marian Devotion’. In 1993 Tim published his own book called ‘Quite Contrary: A Biblical Reconsideration of the Apparitions of Mary’ and on the back cover we read this –

Was Mary ‘Immaculately Conceived’?


Each year, in the Roman Catholic ‘calendar’, on the 8th December, ‘The Feast of the Immaculate Conception’ is observed. Helpful information on what this feast relates to can be found on this Roman Catholic web site link

Just a few lines from the item on that link will give understanding as to who and what the term ‘Immaculate Conception’ refers to – there we read –

‘the Blessed Virgin Mary “in the first instance of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace granted by God, in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Saviour of the human race, was preserved exempt from all stain of original sin.”’

J I PACKER – ‘Double-Minded’ and ‘Unstable’



From time to time over many years now I have had occasion to issue warnings about the gospel-compromising actions and words of J I Packer who is regarded by many as a ‘stalwart’ proponent of Evangelicalism and the Reformed Faith position. 

These links will take you to items I have written about him

Perhaps the greatest ‘shock waves were felt when he endorsed the 1994 “Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Christian Mission for the Third Millennium” document. Not only did he endorse it but when challenged as to how he could have come to endorse it he wrote a defence of what he had done. My own assessment was that Mr Packer had totally betrayed what he claimed to believe about core matters such as ‘justification’. There is a good assessment of this matter and Mr Packer’s role in it by Iain Murray and you can view it on
