Paul Forrest wrote: pastor of a large congregation?
The problem Paul is that none of the very 'large congregation'have made any complaint and many of them profess their Salvation through Ian Paisley as the preaching instrument. I didn't hear any Free Presbyterian Ministers complaining until recent times, never about his workload and skirting any Pastoral issues, nor complaining about the quality of his preaching.
How does he differ from some other Reformed ministers...you usually see them on a Sunday in the pulpit and the midweek bible study. No more.
It is easy to be a critic, but may I ask why those who are his friends seem to have taken little trouble to contact him? If you want to critique his politics that is one thing, but I prefer some evidence to show his preaching ministry has suffered or is suffering?
The sad thing is he is being treat as though he is some apostate by some, or others say he has lost the plot. What do the elders of Martyrs Memorial have to say about that? Or members of that church? Why not ask Kyle Paisley and he might get some facts, he can be contacted via sermonaudio.
Let brotherly love continue..especially in our posts on a public website.
