Successor to Paisley faces first challenge

Friday, February 15, 2008
By Noel McAdam
The church leader who replaced Ian Paisley as Free Presbyterian Moderator is facing his first challenge - from within his own congregation.
A 'petition of concern' is being organised against the Rev Ron Johnstone just over a month after he was elected as Mr Paisley's successor.
It follows a row within the Armagh Free Presbyterian Church which the petition alleges led to a quarrel between senior members at a prayer meeting.
The petition, obtained by the Belfast Telegraph, reads: "We the undersigned communicant members of Armagh Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster request that our Presbytery urgently investigate the overall conduct and workings of our Minister and Church Session.
"Events reached what we believe to be crisis point on Thursday 31st January 2008.
"We find the current tense situation to be untenable and therefore plead for the immediate intervention of our Presbytery.'
Sources said the dispute centres on the involvement by a church elder in a youth outreach project at Armagh Orange Hall which would have involved 'modern' music.
The use of contemporary music is shunned by the church, which encourages members "to lead Godly lives (that) will be testimonies of holiness and righteousness, in a world increasingly plagued by lowering moral values."
Mr Johnstone said: "I could not comment on any matter internal to the church."
He was said, however, to have directly addressed church members at services and spoken of his sadness over the petition.
"It left members of the congregation shocked and stunned. In very emotional terms, he said he had been praying in the middle of the night," one source said.
The petition is being sent to the Church's ruling Presbytery which will have to decide whether to intervene in the dispute, which has lead to some members threatening to leave the church.
One family involved said a member of the church committee had been asked to resign.
"It all came to a head at a prayer meeting last week and things got a wee bit heated and there was a refusal to shake hands which caused bad feeling," an observer said.
The row comes after huge slogans were screwed to the wall of the Armagh church, one referring to 'Ron Johnstone the Protestant Pope'.
Speaking at the time, Mr Johnstone said: "This wasn't the work of children. They were large wooden signs, screwed onto the wall and fascia board high up on the wall and our caretaker had to use a high ladder and a screwdriver to remove them.
"We would not have done it on Sunday, but there was a funeral in the afternoon and we would not have wanted mourners to be distracted by these signs. Some of it was blasphemous, but we were saddened rather than angry that anyone should do this.
"The Free Presbyterian Church is united behind me, and while I'm not speculating, this was obviously the work of cranks."
Mr Johnstone was elected unanimously by the Presbytery last month after Mr Paisley stood down.
