27. DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS BELIEFS (PART 1)

Who founded your church?
About Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) 
Beliefs and Practices
 
Sometime in May 2015, I mentioned that Iglesia Ni Cristo will be imploding from within its closed walls. Soon that implosion will turn into explosion which will have a lasting effect in the whole church that Felix Manalo have founded in July 27, 1914.
The great Corruption inside the Church is unfolding

In the spirit of our successful 2 Million views to date (April 19, 2015 – June 27, 2015: 2 months and 8 days or basically just 68 days old, 82 posts, garnering a total of 2,008,309 Views), commemorating this global phenomenon, let me share this article highlighting the global church, our beloved Iglesia Ni Cristo, and the previously invisible global power of…… THE SANTOS FAMILY, which will now be thoroughly EXPOSED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT.

I will prove to you that in the present day Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ), power is concentrated in the hands of a few individuals, notably in the members of the Advisory Council, but none greater than in the Santos family. I am, of course, referring to Bro. Jun Santos, his wife Annie, his sons Sergie and GP as well as his brother in the United States, Manuel (“Boy”) Santos, also a minister. Bro. Jun’s scope of control has gone way beyond auditing of the finances and activities of the Church, for potential elimination of wastage and inefficiencies — the typical role of a General Auditor, which, by the way, is his official designation in the Church.

In practice, Bro. Jun wears many different hats.

  • He is the chief strategist and major influencer (if not decision maker) in matters concerning the construction of houses of worship and other buildings including the Philippine Arena, sports complex and stadium. 
  • He is the contract negotiator, reviewer, and approver for various construction projects including signing off on contracts for materials and labor. 
  • He decides (or is a major influencer on) which long-term assets to acquire when, and which ones to dispose of, for how much, and through whom. 
  • He is also the master architect behind all the Guinness-motivated, traffic-disrupting Lingap (Aid to Humanity) activities, medical and dental missions, major propagation projects, centennial and closing centennial celebrations. 
  • In addition, he is the brains behind the production, marketing, and forcible distribution of various UNLAD products to brethren as well as the crafting of an effective payment collection scheme. 
  • Co-ministers will attest that he decides on the fate of his fellow ministers, i.e., who gets promoted, demoted, reassigned, taken down, or worse, expelled. 
And lest we forget, he is also the mastermind behind the creation of the never-ending special, special offerings and the corresponding bended-knee style of devotional prayers to guilt the brethren into giving more.

And if you will be able to ask around, every District, every Office, every Section, every Department in the whole of Central and other Bureaus, there is only one name who calls the shots, who makes the decisions, who gives the Go-Signal, who Approves anything and Everything, who has the power to STOP anything and everything, and unfortunately that is no longer the name of our beloved Executive Minister, Bro. Eduardo V. Manalo, ALARMINGLY, IT IS NOW THE RESONATING NAME THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE CHURCH, BRO. GLICERIO B. SANTOS JR. The Phrase: Sa atas ng Tagapamahalang Pangkalahatan or At the instruction of the Executive Minister, is now just a “fine print” for technicality’s sake.

As you will see later in this article, this Santos family has surreptitiously, deceitfully and deliberately injected themselves into almost every facet of the Church, MAKING THE SANTOS FAMILY AN INDISPENSABLE FIGURE IN THE CHURCH. In fact, he and his family are directly involved in the executive and day-to-day management of INC companies notably FYM Foundation, the Subic Bay-FYM Foundation, UNLAD, F. Y. Medical Foundation (New Era General Hospital), Maligaya Development Corp., and New Era University (by extension, also the College of Evangelical Ministry).

Their power extends not only in the Philippines but globally wherever the Church has a presence.


In the United States, Bro. Jun Santos may keep younger sibling Boy on a leash but make no mistake. Bro. Boy Santos is a ruler in his own fiefdom, the Iglesia ni Cristo United States Main Office (USMO). According to fellow ministers in the U.S., he is every bit the tyrant that his older brother is. To those who do not know, USMO “acts as an extension of the Church Administration, assisting in overseeing a vast portion of the globe.” (Ref. http://incmedia.org/usmo-united-states-main-office/). 

Bro. Boy’s equivalent at the Europe Main Office also bows down to Bro Jun. With so much power to wield and a vast resources at this family’s disposal, is it any wonder the Church is plagued by allegations of: corruption among the Church hierarchy, bribery, political wheeling and dealing, harboring a fugitive, unabashed capitalism, furtive business ventures, more and more Church properties being offered for sale, unexplained wealth of those in the Advisory Council, ministers leading an opulent lifestyle discordant with their stipend, “express” expulsions of suspected brethren dissidents and complete disregard for due process and long established procedures ?

In the words of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws”. Or put another way, he who controls the purse strings… makes the rules. Or, in our days, He who bears the name Glicerio B. Santos Jr., controls the Church and everything in it. (On how Bro. Glicerio B. Santos Jr. was able to slowly but surely conquer every facet of the church, please refer to (6 Parts Series) https://iglesianicristosilentnomore.wordpress.com/2015/06/07/part-6-the-unfelt-caring-for-the-flock/ to better understand how this came about after years of planning and assimilation from within the Church Administration. 

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s proceed to our storyboard. At the end of this presentation, I am convinced that even if you are on the fence about some of the allegations above, you will arrive at the ONLY possible conclusion that you can come to — that Mr. Rothschild is correct and what he said applies in this case. First off, why don’t we do a quick search for “Glicerio Santos” in the Open Corporate's database?

Silent Crusader: The true color of Iglesia Ni Cristo is now visible. A wrong cannot be corrected by another wrong. So is Iglesia Ni Cristo truly the church that Jesus founded 2000 years ago? If so why is greed abounds inside the closed chapels of Iglesia Ni Cristo religion. The truth is Iglesia ni Cristo is solely founded by Felix Y Manalo and it is more appropriate to call it Iglesia Ni Manalo for Christ is not their divine God but a man whom they idolized wrongly. No man is to be idolized but INC does it without question. Anything that is not of God is of the devil. The way the minister described Iglesia Ni Cristo, it is pretty obvious it is a corporation disguised as a religion. True religion is not about monetizing it where greed is the norm. Religion is about spirituality not about money.

Felix Y Manalo, the founder of Iglesia Ni Cristo, has a very similar approach and techniques with Herbert W. Armstrong who was the founder and pastor general of the Worldwide Church of God. Read Herbert W Armstrong's "Mysteries of the Ages" and Gerald Flurry's "The True History of God's Church". If you read these two books then you will understand what I mean.

Satan's false church is about to implode within its closed chapel doors. Yes still many members will not look into the truth but insist on their denial and blind obedience to their party leaders. 

INC is nothing but a cult.


Why INC is nothing but a cult.
Characteristics Associated with Cultic Groups - Revised 
Janja Lalich, Ph.D. & Michael D. Langone, Ph.D.

Concerted efforts at influence and control lie at the core of cultic groups, programs, and relationships. Many members, former members, and supporters of cults are not fully aware of the extent to which members may have been manipulated, exploited, even abused. The following list of social-structural, social-psychological, and interpersonal behavioral patterns commonly found in cultic environments may be helpful in assessing a particular group or relationship.

Compare these patterns to the situation you were in (or in which you, a family member, or friend is currently involved). This list may help you determine if there is cause for concern. Bear in mind that this list is not meant to be a “cult scale” or a definitive checklist to determine if a specific group is a cult. This is not so much a diagnostic instrument as it is an analytical tool.

Let us answer YES or NO to each of the following if they apply to Iglesia Ni Cristo:
  1. The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.‪  - YES
  2. Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished. - YES
  3. Mind-altering practices (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, and debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s). - YES
  4. The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, members must get permission to date, change jobs, marry—or leaders prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, whether or not to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth). - YES
  5. The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar—or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity). - YES
  6. The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society. - YES
  7. The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations). - YES
  8. The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members' participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (for example, lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities). - YES
  9. The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt in order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion. - YES
  10. Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group. - YES
  11. The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members. - YES
  12. The group is preoccupied with making money. - YES
  13. Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities. - YES
  14. Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members. - YES
  15. The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group. - YES

As we can see everything applies to Iglesia Ni Cristo, therefore, Iglesia is not really a religion or a church but nothing but a cult. 

They call the leaders' imposed discipline as unity.


According to Bro. Isahel N. Alfonso's Catholic Eternal Truth - Iglesia ni Cristo is an indigenous cult founded on July 27, 1914 in the Philippines, this religious cult was founded by Felix Manalo y Sagun born May 10, 1886 in Barrio Calzada Taguig Rizal. He was born from of Catholic parents and was baptized in a Catholic Church.

Felix Manalo did not understand the Catholic faith, from then on he keep on hopping from one church to another, later on he become a Colorumism, Methodist, Presbyterian, Alliance of Christian Missionaries and lastly Adventist.

Discontented by what he learned from these churches he later on founded his own Church and named it Iglesia ni Cristo. In 1919 Felix Manalo went to America to study theology at Pacific School of Religion however his name does not appear in the list of student who enrolled in the said University, it is also odd that a messenger of God an angel (according to their doctrine) got his theology from a protestant university not from God himself.

The doctrines that they teach are anti-Christian since it goes against the basic tenets of Christianity like that of the Divinity of Christ, and he (Felix Manalo) is an angel sent by God as the last messenger.

Silent Crusader: This explains how Felix Manalo found a way to establish his own doctrines and teachings from his experiences and knowledge he got from these different cult and denominations he joined in his preparation to become a founder of the biggest cult in the Philippines: Colorumism, Methodist, Presbyterian, Alliance of Christian Missionaries and lastly Adventist


Did Felix Manalo really give the world new messages directly from God as he claimed? Nothing. How can a false teacher claim to be an angel and messenger from God when he brings nothing but illusion and false doctrines? It is very clear from own words of an Iglesia Ni Cristo minister who is silent no more - Unless you take the risk of being expelled members are not allowed to investigate much less read the bible freely to understand the true doctrine and teachings of Jesus Christ.

What does Iglesia Ni Cristo says about the Catholic Church?

PASUGO APRIL 1966, P. 6 "...The Catholic Church which from the beginning was the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo)."

PASUGO JULY AUGUST 1988 PP. 6. “Even secular history shows a direct time link between the Catholic Church and the Apostles, leading to the conclusion that the true Church of Christ is the Catholic Church.”

PASUGO March-April 1992, p. 22 "The Church of Christ during the time of the Apostles became the Catholic Church of the bishops in the second century...

What Iglesia Ni Cristo does not want her members to believe

John 10:30 "I and the Father are one." Jesus and his Father are one God in two divine persons. 

THOMAS ANSWERED "MY LORD AND MY GOD" (Not in a surprised manner or expression)
JOHN 20:26-29 "26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. 27 Then he saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see my hands; and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. 28 Thomas answered, and said to him: My Lord, and my God. 29 Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed.
Iglesia Ni Cristo teaches their members that because Thomas was always absent he was surprised to see Jesus alive and uttered a surprise expression as in "Oh my God" similar to expressions like "Oh my goodness" or "Holy mackerel".
But it is very clear he saw Jesus but Judas didn't say a word yet.

In an earlier occasion, Thomas spoke to the other apostles in JOHN 20:25 "The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe."
On this second occasion, when Jesus entered the room, knowing what is going in Thomas' mind, he then asked Thomas to put his hand into his wounded side and Thomas obliged and when he did touch Jesus' side, all his doubts now all gone and finally believed that Jesus is God and so he answered his master "My Lord and my God."
Was Thomas surprised - NO.
Was "My Lord and my God" just a surprised expression by Thomas - NO
.
Watch how Iglesia Ni Cristo's master debater, Jose Ventilacion got clobbered during a debate on "My Lord and my God." 

God My Jesus - the Author of Life you Killed, the Alpha and Omega

Habakkuk 3:18 "But I will rejoice in the Lord: and I will joy in God my Jesus." Even elementary pupils can understand this simple English "God my Jesus". But INC is not better than elementary pupils because they have already been brainwashed and blinded from the truth.

Psalms 61:3 "For he is my God and my Savior: he is my protector, I shall be moved no more." Jesus is our God and savior, mediator and protector.

Acts Of Apostles 3:15 "But the author of life you killed, whom God hath raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses." Jesus is the author of life that Iglesia Ni Cristo says otherwise just because Felix Y Manalo said so. Any member who believes otherwise will be subjected to excommunication. What a scare tactic that the blind ministers imposed on their blind members and cult followers.

Revelation) 1:8 "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord God, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty." The author of life was the beginning and the end who came to save the whole mankind not just the mere 2.5 millions (Iglesia Ni Manalo members).

2.25 Million membership since 1914: 
'The rise of INC: 'Stricter religions grow stronger'?

Is it true that the Iglesia Ni Cristo® membership is rising? Michael Buesa of Rappler.com reported in July 26, 2014 a day before the INC's 100 Year Founding Anniversary the following:

"There are a total of 2,251,941 members of the INC in the Philippines, according to the National Statistics Office (NSO). It is a 28% increase, from 1,762,845 in 2000."

The National Statistics Office (NSO) reported that in 2000 INC's total membership was 1.76 million of which it increased to 2.25 million in 2014.  Translate that it means for 14 long years, the Iglesia Ni Cristo® increased just only 487,155 members only. And for a hundred years, just roughly 2.25 millions?

Rapler's Paterno Esmaquel II reiterated the same data with a catchy headlines saying  The rise of INC: 'Stricter religions grow stronger'

"... the INC, the Church of Christ, a group that has grown to 2.25 million followers from only a dozen when it was born in the Philippines in 1914."

Perhaps, that's the reason why the Iglesia Ni Cristo Administration do not want to divulge their exact members.  But something the INC cannot contradict is the fact that their church, has nothing to do with the original Church of Jesus Christ...

The Founder of Iglesia Ni Cristo® is Felix Manalo, and NOT Christ!





The INC And The True Church (link)  
Iglesia Ni Cristo's official belief:
  • INC Is The True Church. 
  • Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ in English) is found within the pages of Scripture.
  • Jesus Christ is the founder of the Church henceforth the true Church should also be named after Him thus the name of the true Church is Iglesia ni Cristo or Church of Christ. 
  • Quoted Bible translation of Lamsa to read - "Church of Christ
  • Thus their Church is Church of Christ and concluded theirs is the true Church. 
Their BASIC line of attack on Catholicism:
  • Later on they would ask Catholic apologists where official name of the Catholic Church written within the pages of Scripture.
  • and if he cannot find it the INC minister would conclude that the Catholic Church is not the true Church since its name is not found in the Bible. 
  • Such a line of reason is very illogical since it would imply that the basis of a Church for being the true Church is whether its name can be found within the pages of Scripture and not on the person who founded such Church. 
  • If this is the case then the INC ministers has no reason not to accept those man made Churches as a true Church since they too patterned the name of the Church from phrases that can be found within the pages of Scripture.
The Catholic Church

  • The name of the Church is not basis for knowing whether such church is the true Church or not, the name of the Church is irrelevant in proving for the authenticity of the Church.
  • Regardless whether the name of the Church is found in the pages of Scripture or not, if it is not founded by Jesus Christ then it is not the true Church.
  • Granting without admitting that the name of the church founded by Felix Manalo is found in the pages of Scripture but the mere fact that it is not Christ who founded it then it is not the true Church.
  • Felix Manalo is the true, real and only founder of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, it is not Jesus Christ who founded their Church, but only a man named Felix Manalo. Thus it is futile for his ministers to proclaim that their Church is the true Church.
  • Historically and Biblically speaking the Catholic Church is the only true Church of Jesus Christ. The establishment of the Church as founded by God was prophesied by the prophet Daniel he said;
  • "In the time of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom never to be destroyed or delivered up to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and put an end to them. And it will endure forever". Daniel 2:44
  • There are two important facts that can be deduced from this prophecy of Daniel first is that God will be the one who will established His kingdom here on earth and secondly this kingdom will last forever. These facts point us to the establishment of the Church, the kingdom of God here on earth by Jesus Christ. In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus Christ said;
  • "And now I say to you: You are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church; and never will the powers of death overcome it. I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven: whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you unbind on earth shall be unbound in heaven." Matthew 16:18-19
  • The prophecy of the prophet Daniel finds its fulfillment in the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is the God (John.1:1. Romans 9:5, Titus 2:13) who will establish His kingdom here on earth and His kingdom or Church will endure forever for this Church is no religious building or a group of people professing the same faith rather this Church is His mystical body (Collosians 1:18, Ephesians 1:22), and He is perpetually present in His Church when He said that I will be with you until the end of time (Matthew 28:20). This Church which professed to be the true Church is the Catholic Church. In the early days of Christianity the Church that Jesus Christ founded was called Catholic;
  • You must all follow the bishop as Jesus Christ follows the Father, and the presbytery as you would the Apostles. Reverence the deacons as you would the command of God. Let no one do anything of concern to the Church without the bishop. Let that be considered a valid Eucharist which is celebrated by the bishop, or by one whom he appoints. Wherever the bishop appears, let the people be there; just as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the CATHOLIC CHURCH. . . St. Ignatius of Antioch, Letter to the Smyrnaeans
  • At the early days of Christianity there is only one Christian Church and that is the Catholic Church. Thus the Catholic Church has more legitimate reasons for claiming to be the true Church than the Iglesia Ni Cristo which was founded by Felix Manalo. The Church of Felix Manalo is unheard of prior to 1914 not an iota or even a speck of stain ever points to the Church of Felix Manalo. For the INC to substantiate their claim as the true Church they should provide us with solid historical evidences that their Church is the Church that Christ founded in Matthew 16:18-19 and not some silly name game. But as far as truth is concerned the INC ministers failed to prove their case that their Church is the true Church of Christ. 
To Iglesia Ni Cristo, Jesus Christ is just a mediator and man (heretic doctrine and teaching)
   
According to Felix Manalo, the founder of Iglesia Ni Cristo, Jesus Christ is a just a special man and mediator sent by God the Father. 1 Timothy 2:5  "For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus:" But the bible also state that Jesus is God in the Old Testament besides being a mediator which is also one of his mission in God's Plan of Salvation:  Habakkuk 3:18"But I will rejoice in the Lord: and I will joy in God my Jesus". 

What St Paul was actually telling in his first letter to Timothy is clearly about: Prayers are to be said for all men, because God wills the salvation of all. Women are not to teach. 1Timothy 2:1-5 "I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men: For kings, and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, Who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus: Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times."


Christ is the one and only mediator of redemption, who gave himself, as the apostle writes in the following verse. He is also the only mediator, who stands in need of no other to recommend his petitions to the Father. But this is not against our seeking the prayers and intercession, as well of the faithful upon earth, as of the saints and angels in heaven, for obtaining mercy, grace, and salvation, through Jesus Christ. As St. Paul himself often desired the help of the prayers of the faithful, without any injury to the mediatorship of Jesus Christ. 

1 Timothy 2:5 is not merely just to literally say that Jesus is not divine. Iglesia Ni Cristo just cherry picked this verse alone to change its meaning and context and literally teaches this as a doctrine. This is done to support their own doctrine and teachings that Jesus is just a mere man and not divine.

Felix Manalo also teaches that Jesus was the very first created being not the "Only Begotten Son" thus Jesus is not really Divine as what the Catholic Church believes. This heretic teaching of Felix Manalo is in contrary to what the bible is saying that Jesus Christ is the "Only Begotten Son" of the Father. John 3:16"For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting."

If we go back to the creation of man, the bible says the first created being was Adam. Genesis 1:26-27 "And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth. And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.

Unfortunately for the members, INC ignores yet on the other hand teaches them by way of cherry picking and twisting verses that actually would lead to the true full divinity of Jesus Christ as God and Savior. To stop her members from knowing the truth of Jesus Christ's divinity, they members are only allowed to read the bible but they are not allowed to interpret the bible verses on their own but only as reference. They are instructed strictly to just follow what the ministers teaches. INC enforce its doctrine that only ordained ministers possess the mind that could give true meaning to bible verses and that members do not possess the same faculty. But the real truth behind this is to keep her memberships from finding out the real truth about the falsehood of their doctrines and teachings. 

To prove that Jesus Christ is truly Divine, here are just few of the verses that show the truthfulness of his divinity:

2 Peter 1:1 "Simon Peter, servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained equal faith with us in the justice of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ."

Psalms 61:3 "For he is my God and my saviour: he is my protector, I shall be moved no more." For Jesus is our God and our saviour and protector.

Psalms 61:7 "For he is my God and my saviour: he is my helper, I shall not be moved."

Isaiah 45:21 "Tell ye, and come, and consult together: who hath declared this from the beginning, who hath foretold this from that time? Have not I the Lord, and there is no God else besides me? A just God and a saviour, there is none besides me." Jesus Christ is a just God and a saviour.

Titus 2:13"Looking for the blessed hope and coming of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ,"

Hosea 13:4"But I am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt: and thou shalt know no God but me, and there is no saviour beside me." 

Deuteronomy 32:15"The beloved grew fat, and kicked: he grew fat, and thick and gross, he forsook God who made him, and departed from God his saviour."

1 Chronicles 16:35"And say ye: Save us, O God our saviour: and gather us together, and deliver us from the nations, that we may give glory to thy holy name, and may rejoice in singing thy praises."

Psalms 24:5"Direct me in thy truth, and teach me; for thou art God my Saviour; and on thee have I waited all the day long."

Psalms 84:5"Convert us, O God our saviour: and turn off thy anger from us."

Isaiah 17:10 "Because thou hast forgotten God thy saviour, and hast not remembered thy strong helper: therefore shalt thou plant good plants, and shalt sow strange seed."

Psalms 23:5"He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God his Saviour."

Titus 3:4"But when the goodness and kindness of God our Saviour appeared:"

Luke 1:47"And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour."

Zachariah 9:9
 "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Sion, shout for joy, O daughter of Jerusalem: BEHOLD THY KING will come to thee, the just and saviour: he is poor, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass."  Zachariah speak of Jesus divinity who came as a humble king, the just and saviour Jesus Christ, but not as a proud king or just a mere man. Only Felix Manalo founder of Iglesia Ni Cristo teaches otherwise which is the same as his former church where he learned the doctrine Jesus being just a man (not divine), the Seventh Day Adventist. 


2 Peter 1:11 "For so an entrance shall be ministered to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."

2 Peter 2:20 "For if, flying from the pollutions of the world, through the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they be again entangled in them and overcome: their latter state is become unto them worse than the former."

2 Peter 3:2"That you may be mindful of those words which I told you before from the holy prophets, and of your apostles, of the precepts of the Lord and Saviour."  Here Peter uses the word Lord for God. In the bible, the word "Lord" means "God".

2 Peter 3:18"But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and unto the day of eternity. Amen."

Isaiah 43:11"I am, I am the Lord: and there is no saviour besides me." 

The irony is that if asked, Iglesia Ni Cristo cannot show even in just one verse that Jesus Christ denies he is divine and that he is just a man just like anyone else. Yet members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo will blindly accept their doctrine that Jesus is just a man mediator.

The Bible and Messages (Beliefs, teachings and practices of INC)

SOLA SCRIPTURA - Felix Manalo uses all the Protestant Bible Versions most notable are the Lamsa and  the Moffatt versions. Accordingly the practice of the Iglesia Ni Cristo in using the Bible is to cherry pick up verses from one bible to another each time to discuss a certain topic or doctrine. They say they do that in order to filter and only use those that they believe is truthful and biblical or most appropriate to the teachings of Felix Manalo. Some Iglesia members would explained about cherry picking of verses as dependent on the topic. What is wrong with using just one bible? Why can't they find the truth in just one bible? Or is it because, the rest of the verses in a paragraph or chapter when read throughout will contradict their own teachings and doctrines? The later question is the answer.  

PASUGO - They say they only believe in what is written in the bible and do not believe in any unwritten oral traditions. However, if you read some of their Pasugo or God's Message magazine, you will find some contradicting statements from different minister-authors. Because of this, Erano Manalo, the heir to the Iglesia Ni Cristo leadership issued an instruction that no articles in the Pasugo will be issued with his expressed approval. 

LAMSA TRANSLATION - One of the verses INC avoids while attack the Catholic Church's practice of the Sacrament of Confession is the Lamsa Transaltion (John 20:23) If you forgive a man his sins, they shall be forgiven to him, and if you withhold forgiveness of a man's sins, they are kept. This verse describes the Catholic's practice and tradition of the Sacrament of Confession which Iglesia Ni Cristo denies. INC says confession to a priest, a clergy commissioned by the Catholic Church to hear confessions and give absolution to repentant sinners of their sins is unbiblical yet this is what John 20:23 is all about.  

MY LORD AND MY GOD - When after resurrection, Jesus appeared to His disciples, everyone rejoiced when they saw our Lord. But Thomas, one of the original twelve apostles was not with them when Jesus came. When the disciples told him that they have seen the Lord, 'doubting' Thomas replied to them, "Unless I see in His hands the marks of the nails, and put my fingers in them, and put my hands into His side, I will not believe." But eight days later, the disciples including Thomas were again indoors when Jesus came when the doors were locked and stood in their midst saying "Peace be with you." 

John 20:27 -30 "Then He said to Thomas, "Put your finger here, and see my hands, and reach out your hand and put it into my side, and be not faithless, but believing." Thomas answered, saying to Him, "Oh my Lord and my God!Jesus said to him, "Now you believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen me, and have believed." Many other miracles Jesus did in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.

John 20:28 "...Oh my Lord and my God!" is only one of those real proof of Jesus' Divinity yet Iglesia Ni Cristo denies this and instead will give you other verses that shows Jesus talks about His Father as God. Because their (INC) minds are closed to anything other than what their central administration tells them, there is no way that belief can change, not now or anytime in the future. INC ministers, deacons and members would never attempt to disobey nor to refute what their central administration office says so for fear of being expelled from the church.

According to the heresies of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, Apostle Thomas was always absent and when he entered the room and saw all his fellow apostles, the Blessed Mother, Mary Magdalene and others were gathered, stunned on what he saw, surprisingly uttered an expression of amazement: "Oh my Lord and my God".  

Again this is a false teaching and doctrine of the Iglesia Ni Cristo that Apostle Thomas just simply uttered in a surprised fashion similar to the present day-time when people would expressly say "Oh my God" anytime as often. Let us look at the verses to disprove Iglesia Ni Cristo's doctrine about the Apostle Thomas in chronological order: John 20:24-31 "Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. Then he saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see my hands; and bring hither thy hand, and put it into my side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered, and said to him: My Lord, and my GodJesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing, you may have life in his name.

The true biblical events that took place clearly showed what transpired and not according to the heresies of the Iglesia Ni Cristo. Yet, when they are confronted they would give verses about Jesus saying that there is only one God his Father in Heaven.

What did Lamsa Translation says about John 20:28? "Thomas answered, saying to him, Oh my Lord and my God!" 

So why do Iglesia Ni Cristo ministers avoided teaching this verse John 20:28 to their membership? Is this verse insignificant to them? Or is simply because they will be contradicting their own doctrines or teachings that Jesus Christ is not Divine at all that Jesus Christ is the first creation of God and not adam.



What spirits are of God, and what are not. We must love one another, because God has loved us. According to INC, Jesus is the Jesus Christ that come into the world in the flesh.


1 John 4:1-5 "Dearly beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits if they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. By this is the spirit of God known. Every spirit which confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God: And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and he is now already in the world. You are of God, little children, and have overcome him. Because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore of the world they speak, and the world heareth them.

 According to INC, Jesus is the Jesus Christ that come into the world in the flesh.
Psalms 83:10 "Behold, O God our protector: and look on the face of thy Christ." But the God who protects has the face of Christ. And according to Peter, Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God in Matthew 16:16.
But Iglesia Ni Cristo will cleverly explains, they are not denying that Jesus Christ, God's first create man, has come in the flesh because God the Father sent him but it does not make Jesus Christ divine. Therefore, Jesus is of God in literal point of view only. 

If Jesus was the first created man, then Adam is the second created Man and Eve is the third. But then again Jesus was born in Bethlehem and literally, there thousands upon thousands who were born before him. So how can he be the first born and the first created man? The only truth is that Jesus Christ is the "Only Begotten Son" of God the Father for he is the WORD. the Alpha and Omega...who is to come, the Author of Life, I AM who was sent by God the Father to redeem the world. Therefore those who do not believe and do not confess that Jesus is God who came down in flesh is not of God. What is not of God is of the devil. 

In addition to the above Douay-Rheims version, I have included three more versions of the ANTICHRIST: KJV, LAMSA & MOFFAT because one of the members of INC asked me what version I used.

1) King James Version
1 JOHN 4:1-3 "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world."

2) Lamsa Version
1 JOHN 4:1-3 "My beloved, do not believe every prophecy, but examine the prophecies to find out if they are of God, because many false prophets have appeared in the world. The Spirit of God is known by this: Every prophecy which declares that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is from God. And every prophecy which does not declare that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not from God, but it is the prophecy of the false Christ, of whose coming you have heard and who is even now already in the world."

3) Moffatt Version
1 JOHN 4:1-3 
"Do not believe every spirit, beloved, but test the spirits to see if they come from God; for many false prophets have emerged in this world.You can recognize the Spirit of God by this: every spirit which confesses Jesus as the Christ incarnate comes from God, And every spirit which does not confesses that Jesus [Incarnate] does not come from God. This latter is the spirit of antichrist;"

To all who are marveled and awed by the limelight and the splendor of Iglesia Ni Cristo's buildings and its accomplishment in the Guinness Book of Records, be weary for they are nothing in the eyes of God but man's vanity. Ask why your chapel is always kept closed particularly during the hour of worship. True church of God should always be opened especially during the hour of worship for everyone is invited to worship the Lord our God and this is pleasing to Him. 


God true church is universal and open for all. What is in your heart and the conditions of your souls are what matters to God. 

What good is a soul if there is no Holy Spirit in it. That soul without spirit from God is bound to hell. 

Therefore empty your heart of Felix Manalo and let the Holy Spirit works wonders in you instead. .

"Church of Christ" was established in 1836 in U.S.A. by Warren Stone and Alexander Campbell not in 1914 by Felix Manalo (Facts hidden from members of Iglesia Ni Cristo)


According to Felix Manalo of Iglesia Ni Cristo who since had been using the church name "Church of Christ" as the English meaning of "Iglesia Ni Cristo". But according to the record, the union of two churches of Stone and Campbell formed and registered the name "Church of Christ" around 1836 in U.S.A. about less than a century earlier. 

Therefore the re-establishment of the "Church of Christ" according to the doctrines and teachings of Iglesia Ni Cristo registered in 1914 is utterly a false claim and erroneous. Such claim of of re-establishment or re-emergence of the apostatized "Catholic Church" of the 1st Century that Jesus founded with St. Peter that Jesus founded is not true and only a big lie. If the re-emergence truly happened then it might as well in 1836 instead of in 1914.

The Church of Christ was actually brought to the Philippines in 1901.

Someone here is TRULY LYING here. Would it be the Catholic Church or Iglesia Ni Cristo? Your guess.

Excerpts of Forum Discussion About TRINITY: 

St. John is ordered to write to the seven churches in Asia. The manner of Christ's appearing to him. 

Revelation 1:1-2 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to make known to his servants the things which must shortly come to pass: and signified, sending by his angel to his servant John, Who hath given testimony to the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus Christ, what things soever he hath seen.
Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord God, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.

–that Jesus was the beginning and the end, the Lord God almighty who is (present), who was (the past), who is to come (the future), the Almighty. He was to come and become man to redeem man from sinfulness.

Revelation 22:16 “I Jesus have sent my angel, to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and stock of David, the bright and morning star.”
- Only God can send His angels, not by any man, that He will come in the line of David and He will be the bright and the morning star. There is no word in the bible that Jesus was just a special man nor He claimed He is not God. Only anti-Christs teach this false doctrine.

Revelation 22:18-19 “For I testify to everyone that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book: If any man* shall add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues written in this book.  And if any man** shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from these things that are written in this book.”
 


*And who was this man that added himself to the bible? ANSWER: Felix Manalo

**And who was this man that took away the verses about the Divinity of Jesus and the biblical truth of the TRINITY? ANSWER: Felix Manalo

Is there still a chance for the members of the Iglesia ni Felix Manalo to return to the fold of God? ANSWER: YES. A member has simply walk away from these heresies and follow the real true God – Jesus Christ. Not the man-made Jesus Christ of Felix Manalo. Walk back to the universal church of Jesus Christ. There is no other option.

CONCLUSION:

This site http://www.studyiglesianicristo.com/Verses/comparative-verses-intro.html you provided speaks for itself. The verses that INC made comparison of are true because they are from the bible. However, the truth was changed and corrupted when they began their erroneous explanations misleading and turned people away from God and used these erroneous and corrupted teachings to convert people who are weak in faith to join the Iglesia ni Felix Manalo.

THE BEGINNING

Normally, when you want to study God, you will start from the beginning like the Book of Genesis. What is missing in all their comparative studies of the TRINITY is the beginning of everything. Who is the ALPHA and how did He create man? So now we know in the preceding verse Revelation 1:8 that the ALPHA was God so did He create man? 


In Genesis 1:26 this is how God created man: "And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth."Hold on right here, wait a minute, God is singular isn't He according to INC? But the bible say "Let 'US' make man to 'OUR' image"? So was God alone when He created man or was it three of them? The bible is clear God speaketh here in the plural number, to insinuate the plurality of persons in the Deity and this is biblically true as a doctrine that Catholics believe in. So who did God create at that time in Genesis 1:26? Wasn't he Adam and not Jesus? According to Felix Manalo, Erano Manalo, Eduardo Manalo and all the ministers of Iglesia Ni Cristo as confirmed by +summer21 (Google+) that it was Jesus not Adam who was the first created man. Hmmm.... let's examine what happened before, during and after in next paragraph then.

Genesis 1:25-28

[25] "And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds, and cattle, and every thing that creepeth on the earth after its kind. And God saw that it was good."
So God at this point had already created everything on earth animals, etc... and God wants now to create man in His image and likeness, but the bible did not say that but this is what God said "let US create MAN in OUR image" so who is LET US and OUR IMAGE then???? Aren't they the TRINITY? But according to Iglesia Ni Cristo, there is only one God and that Jesus was not a God but just a "special man". And this is another add-on to the Holy Scriptures, INC said Jesus is not God but only a SPECIAL MAN but where in the bible is this that can show this claim of special man by INC is biblical? Nada, nothing, right? This is because this INC's doctrine is just another add-on to INC's heresies and they added to their own invisible bible version.

So if this what INC says, why then God not just say to Himself, 'now I am going to create man in my own image and likeness'? But again this could not be true for that is not what the bible says. So again INC's claim of one God is truly wrong. Let's see then what happened in verses 26-28 to find out what The TRINITY created.

[26-28] "And he said: Let us make man to our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth. And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth."
 


According to INC, there is only one God, but verse 26 says "Let US make man in OUR image" - so INC really is wrong and perverting the Holy Scriptures. Verse 27 says "to the image of God he created him: male and female he created" so INC is wrong again when they say Jesus was the first created being because the bible says it was Adam and not Jesus for in the bible Jesus was the WORD and the WORD was with God and the WORD is God. He is one of the TRINITY from the beginning of time who created everything, therefore Jesus was not the first created being but Adam that the bible was saying. So again INC is wrong. John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." 1 John 1:1 "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the word of life:" But Iglesia Ni Cristo mislead people and unknowingly is saying that God lied from the beginning.

If INC says Jesus was the first created man so why then Adam was the first created male along with Eve as the first female. INC is truly perverting everything that God does and says. If INC insists that Jesus was the first created man then Jesus would have been the husband of Eve and she would have come from Jesus' rib and not from Adam? Are we all clear at this point yet? So truly INC is not telling the truth.

Additionally, INC has to prove and show verses that "Jesus is a special man". And INC has not done that so far or at least show verses and prove that Jesus said something or similar to "I am Jesus and I am not God but a man or simply a special man sent by God."

But didn't we all know the prophesy that Jesus was to come as the Messiah or the Christ to be born of the virgin Mary? So if INC says Jesus was the first created man then He would not be born in Bethlehem in stead should be in the Garden of Eden with Eve. And if INC will continue to insist that Jesus was the first created man and the first born, then it would be logical then to say that Eve gave birth to Jesus as the first born. But we all know this is not true and correct at all. So Iglesia Ni Cristo's perverted teachings are all teachings from the devil and not words of God at all.

Following more on INC's erroneous belief that Jesus was the first man created by God, if Jesus then was in the Garden of Eden, He would then have been the father of Cain and Abel and not as the redeemer of mankind. So now everything really is pointing to just one thing, that is Iglesia Ni Cristo is truly one of the biggest lying churches in the world today.

So where is Adam in the equation then if INC is saying that Jesus was the first created man? I have to repeat this 'first created man - special man" concept over and over again so that this INC lies about Jesus as being the first special man created by God will be as clear as the sky. Jesus was not the first created special man for Jesus is the one and only begotten Son of God before creation, the WORD in the TRINITY - no more no less.

This Felix Manalo really is something, isn't he? Okay let's cut this short. 
The question is why Iglesia ni Felix Manalo didn't touch this Genesis 1:26 when it is a very important starting event on the history of mankind? What could be the reason?

What is revealing is that all the biblical verses on the TRINITY were disregarded and TRUTH OF THEIR SPIRITUAL MEANING were removed in all INC's teachings and doctrines considering and dismissing them as purely unbiblical and mere inventions of the Church Fathers and the Catholic Church.

***The verses mentioned are original and not to be discarded easily as if they are not worth a dime and don’t mean a thing at all. INC should not pervert those verses just like when they have inserted Felix Manalo as an angel in Revelation 7:1-3

***It is amazing how INC can simply just disregard all these many verses about the TRINITY, the Divinity of Jesus but only delve on the human nature of Jesus Christ. They totally disregarded all the verses about Jesus' Divinity just to support their ideological doctrines and teachings.

When Jesus speaks of Himself as God to "his sheep", they hear and understand Him for they know Him. But when He speaks to his "other sheep", he speaks in parables and speaks of God as His father in heaven who sent Him for they don’t know Him, they don't have the truth yet and they cannot understand. It is hard for them to understand and believe so Jesus speaks to them as a man and this is what those verses were for and also for INC but Iglesia ni Felix Manalo instead of understanding these verses properly, INC uses them incorrectly to prove that Jesus was just a SPECIAL MAN (not found in any bible) and nothing else and that is what INM or INC is all about. INM or INC is still the other sheep up to now as they cannot be "Jesus' sheep" for they are still blind and blind cannot see the truth for all along they were guided by a blind man, Felix Manalo, who made them all blind themselves as well.    

Matthew 13:10-17  
"And his disciples came and said to him: Why speakest thou to them in parables?

Other Sheep
Who answered and said to them: Because to you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven: but to them it is not given. For he that hath, to him shall be given, and he shall abound: but he that hath not, from him shall be taken away that also which he hath. 
Therefore do I speak to them in parables: because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled in them, who saith: By hearing you shall hear, and shall not understand: and seeing you shall see, and shall not perceive. For the heart of this people is grown gross, and with their ears they have been dull of hearing, and their eyes they have shut: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

Jesus's Own Sheep
But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear. For, amen, I say to you, many prophets and just men have desired to see the things that you see, and have not seen them, and to hear the things that you hear and have not heard them"

The Persecutions of Christians since the beginning of Jesus' Ministry and up to now

The Persecution of Christians can be traced historically from the time of Jesus in the first century to the present time. Early Christians were persecuted the Jews lead by the Sanhedrin for their faith whose king Herod the Great went on to order the killing all new born up to one year old children in Jerusalem hoping to kill the new-born Jesus, King of the Jews. 


Then persecution came next from the hands of the pagan Roman Empire which controlled much of the land across where early Christians were spread out. Early in the fourth century, the religion was legalized by the Edict of Milan, and it eventually became the State church of the Roman Empire which converted from paganism to Christianity on the account of Emperor Constantine. Emperor Constantine never knew earlier that his mother, St. Helene, had converted into Christianity many years earlier.

Before Roman Empire converting to Christianity, the early Christian missionaries, as well as the people that they have converted to Christianity, have always been the target of widespread persecution, and many times to the point of being martyred for their faith once caught.
So if Christianity is of the devil, then how come they were being persecuted many times over and over again. Isn't persecution the works of the devil? God is love and those who sinned against Him are taken by the devil. So why will the devil persecute his own people if indeed he already owns them for the reason of apostasy according to the doctrine and belief of the Manalos and his membership?

Thanks to the promise of Jesus: 
Matthew 16:18 "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."

There is also a history of individual Christian denominations suffering persecution at the hands of other Christians under the charge of heresy, particularly during the 16th century Protestant Reformation as well as throughout the Middle Ages when various Christian groups deemed heretical.

In the 20th century, Christians have been persecuted by various groups, and by atheistic states such as the USSR and North Korea. During the Second World War members of many Christian churches were persecuted in Germany for resisting the Nazi ideology. Hitler expressed a desire to destroy the influence of Christian churches within the Third Reich, seeing it as absurdity and nonsense founded on Jewish lies. He planned to do this after the war, and not during it, believing "that suited his immediate political purposes". In more recent times the Christian missionary organization Open Doors (UK) estimates 100 million Christians face persecution, particularly in Muslim-dominated countries such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia
A survey reported in 2010 that at least 75% of religious persecution, reported from 2008-2010, around the world was directed at people of the Christian faith. Yet you will read from Iglesia Ni Cristo blogs that it is the other way around - that the Christians are the ones persecuting Iglesia Ni Cristo which of course is another big lie. 

Everyone knows that there is no day nor pagsamba, tv shows, radio comments or videos that Iglesia Ni Cristo do not attack the Catholic Church and the Divinity of Jesus. From day one of their six months indoctrination program, Catholism and her defenders are relentlessly being attacked left and right. Insults, calling names and invictiveness are just a daily routine. One thing noticeable by outsiders and even members is the hatred and mean attitude that are prevalent among members and the Iglesia itself. No signs of humility whatsoever. If ever there is any, they are just facade. However, there are still many good natured members who simply are not outspoken and merely chose to stay in the background. 

Bottomline, Iglesia Ni Cristo relentlessly continue to mention in her membership that the Catholic Church along with all churches (born again, protestants, etc) are churches of the devil and that Iglesia Ni Cristo is the only true that will be saved from eternal hell. Meaning only 3 million or less members worldwide will be saved. 

Did God sent his only begotten son to be crucified 2000 years ago only to save a handful from 1914? Did God lied about his grand Plan of Salvation for whole mankind? Then why Jesus died 2000 years ago if it will only be relevant for 1914? It does not make sense at all.
According to Iglesia Ni Cristo, the Catholic Church has wholly apostatized after the last apostles died. But Erano Manalo published otherwise.
But the True Church never left Rome at all in the first place. But if he meant the Iglesia Ni Cristo then how come INC's Central Office is still located in Diliman, Q.C. Philippines? Why return to the pagan Rome?

This published Pasugo cover state the true Church is back in Rome, but she has never left Rome at all since her beginning. 

Prior to Rome becoming the seat of Christianity Christians were always in constant hiding and are being persecuted everywhere. With the victory of Constantine during the civil war among Romans, the persecution of the Christian were ended....religious freedom for the first time came to the Roman Empire. The Divine message of Love and Hope and Redemption went out joyously to all mankind through out the centuries. 

Christianity never stopped nor apostatised according to Iglesia Ni Cristo but as a matter of record, it never left Rome when Christianity was firmly established in Rome until today and it was made official during the reign of Emperor Constantine. So the so-called apostasy of the Catholic Church after the death of the last apostles as taught by Iglesia Ni Cristo is nothing but an invention concocted by Felix Manalo to support all his claims and primarily to support his biggest lie that Iglesia Ni Cristo is the true church. 

If indeed Christianity apostatised and totally destroyed, then why did Emperor Constantine liberate Christianity in his time and gave them freedom? Then why did Emperor Constantine's conversion to Christianity transformed this formerly small persecuted religion into a formidable superpower of today that soon sweep throughout Europe as Rome crumbled at the hands of the Barbarians, and later left such an imprint on the world that it was changed forever? 

If indeed there was apostasy and total destruction of Christianity after the death of St. Paul, then Christianity would have died and there would be no records or history between that time up until 1914? How come Christianity continued up to the time of Constantine then grew rapidly in leaps and bounds to this day? 

So what is then the Catholic Church that Martin Luther apostatised from that started the birth of protestantism. 

Or how can Satan cast out Satan? Are we listening now? Or are we deaf and dumb still?
Mark 8:18 "Having eyes, see you not? and having ears, hear you not? neither do you remember."

Felix Manalo's claim were all the product of his vanity and ego and imagination which of course were not of God. And what is not of God is of the devil.

The question here now is how come ministers and members of Iglesia Ni Cristo still fanatically hang on to Felix Manalo's invention of apostasy when Ka Erde already said otherwise.

Perhaps Ka Erde truly knew all along that they are lying yet he did not stop his members to continue their fanatical idolation of Felix Manalo and his teachings in exchange for what.... for love of money and power the Manalo's enjoying now. 

Note that Iglesia Ni Kristo was registered as a corporation but never as a church. So why was it not registered as a church from the very beginning?


PASUGO March-April 1992 Finally admitted
that the Catholic Church  is the true church.

           
Erano Manalo is the "Father" of Iglesia Ni Cristo
The hypocrisy of the Iglesia Ni Manalo. Erano Manalo is their Tatay or Father or Ama
This leads us to why Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) is a real cult not a religion nor denomination 

The founder of Iglesia Ni Cristo, Felix Manalo, born on May 10, 1886 in Taguig Philippines, died in 1963, was baptized a Roman Catholic

In his teenage years, Manalo became dissatisfied with Roman Catholic theology. 

According to the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, the establishment of the Philippine Independent Church or the Aglipayan Church was his major turning point but Manalo remained uninterested since its doctrines were mainly Catholic. 

In 1904, he joined the Methodist Episcopal Church,[20] entered the Methodist seminary, and became a pastor for a while. He also seek through various denominations, including the Presbyterian Church, Christian Mission, and finally Seventh-day Adventist Church in 1911. Manalo left the Adventist church in 1913, and associated himself with atheist and agnostic peers. 

[Why do an angel-Felix Manalo entered the seminary to learn about religion to become a pastor? All he has to do is just disappear for 3 days and talk to God in heaven then come back to earth for God's new messages.]

On November 1913, Manalo secluded himself with religious literature and unused notebooks in a friend's house in Pasay, instructing everyone in the house not to disturb him. He emerged from seclusion three days later with his new-found doctrines not messages from God. New-found doctrines from who?


Iglesia ni Cristo's first chapel
in Punta, Sta. Ana, Manila
Manalo, together with his wife, went to Punta, Santa Ana, Manila on November 1913, and started preaching. He left the congregation in the care of his first ordained minister, and returned to Taguig to evangelize. In Taguig he was ridiculed and stoned in his meetings with locals. He was later able to baptize a few converts, including some of his persecutors. He later registered his new-found religion as the Iglesia ni Kristo (English: Church of Christ; Spanish: Iglesia de Kristo) on July 27, 1914 one day before the start of World War 1 at the Bureau of Commerce as a corporation sole with himself as the first executive minister. Expansion followed as INC started building congregations in the provinces in 1916. The first three ministers were ordained in 1919.

In 1922, the INC's first schism, led by Teofilo Ora, one of INC's first ministers, resulted in the loss of several congregations, along with their church buildings, in Bulacan and Nueva Ecija. Ora founded Iglesia Verdadera de Cristo which was later changed to Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus.

By 1924 the INC had about 3,000 to 5,000 adherents in 43 or 45 congregations in Manila and six nearby provinces. By 1936 the INC had 85,000 members. This figure grew to 200,000 by 1954. A Cebu congregation was built in 1937—the first to be established outside of Luzon, and the first in the Visayas. The first mission to Mindanao was commissioned in 1946. Meanwhile, its first concrete chapel was built in Sampaloc, Manila in 1948. Adherents fleeing for the provinces away from Manila, where the Japanese forces were concentrated during the World War II, were used for evangelization. As Manalo's health began to fail in the 1950s, Eraño Manalo started to take leadership of the church after Felix Manalo died on April 12, 1963


Iglesia Ni Cristo says in their PASUGO that all their doctrines are actually all from from God, Jesus Christ or the Apostles

Initially, Iglesia Ni Cristo affirmed that their doctrines were not authored by Felix Manalo as issued below: 

PASUGO Mayo 1952, p. 4 “Kung ang babalingan ng pag-uusapan ay ang nagtatag, dapat na siya ang may-ari ng itinatag, at sa kanya rin manggagaling ang mga aral at turo na ipinatutupad." Felix Manalo was trying to insinuate that since he found Iglesia Ni Kristo, everything, every doctrine and teachings are from him.


PASUGO Nobyembre 1959, p. 20: “Kaninong aral ang itinuturo ng Iglesia ni Cristo? Aral ng Dios, ni Cristo at ng mga Apostol na nasusulat sa Banal na Kasulatan. Walang aral si Kapatid na Felix Manalo na kinatha mula sa kanyang sarili." Here, the Iglesia Ni Cristo says all the teachings from Felix Manalo is not composed by himself but coming from God, Jesus and from the apostles.

PASUGO Nobyembre 1960, p. 26: “Kaya't papaano makikilala ang sugo ng Dios at ang hindi sugo ng Dios: Sa aral makikilala ayon kay Jesus. Ang aral ng mga sugo ng Dios ay mula sa Dios, ang mga aral ng hindi sugo ng Dios, ay mula lamang sa kanyang sarili. (John 7: 16-18) Felix Manalo was saying according to Jesus, a real messenger from God carries the messages from God not of the messenger himself. PASUGO Hulyo 1965, p. 12: “Parehong-pareho ang espiritu ni Cristo sa diwa ni Kapatid na Felix Manalo sa pamamaraan ng pagdadala ng tungkuling tinanggap sa Dios." Here Iglesia Ni Cristo esteemed highly Felix Manalo comparable to Jesus Christ. This is blasphemous as no one can be equaled to Jesus Christ. One can be likened but never equal to Jesus in spirit or in ways. Jesus is very humble, loving, forgiving, compassionate and charitable and he is the Son of God while Felix Manalo is the opposite who is too proud, deceitful, liar, rapist and womanizer. There is no comparison in thought and in ways. What a grieve blasphemous error in the part of Iglesia Ni Cristo.


And here is the revelation - Iglesia Ni Cristo confirmed all their doctrines, beliefs and practices are from Felix Manalo and not by Jesus Christ

Here in these two Pasugos below, in just two years they finally confirmed that all their doctrines were truly authored by Felix Manalo and not of Jesus Christ. Lies and lies so which one now is correct? Talking about consistency. If things are based on lies, then that is when there are no established facts and therefore inconsistent as shown in the following two confirmation of what is actually the real truth. The true facts are that Iglesia Ni Cristo's teachings and doctrines are really composed by the self-proclaimed messenger.
PASUGO May 1961, p.4 “At sino nga ba ang gumagawa ng mga leksiyong itinuturo ng mga ministro, maging sa mga pagsamba, mga doktrina o mga Propaganda? Ang Kapatid na Felix Manalo.” Who composed? Who else but the false messenger Felix Manalo.

PASUGO Mayo 1963, p. 27: “Kaya’t sa katuparan ng hula, ang lahat ng mga itinuturo ng mga Ministro ng INK sa mga pagsamba, sa mga doktrina, sa mga pamamahayag sa gitna ng baya, ay si Kapatid na Felix Manalo lamang ang bumabalangkas at nagtuturo sa kanila.”
And after two years, Iglesia Ni Cristo reconfirmed that all her teachings and doctrines are really of Felix Manalo. And why did they do that? If you will remember, as recorded in the department of justice in the Philippine Courts, Felix Manalo claimed he was the Messiah. In other words he was the Christ who founded Iglesia Ni Cristo in 1914 and he wanted to be consistent to PASUGO Hulyo 1965, p. 12.

Self-proclamation - The great lie.
PASUGO Mayo 1964, p. 1: “Inihandog ng Dios ang kanyang sarili sa kanyang huling sugo upang dumiyos sa kanya. Samakatuwid, ang tanging may Dios na huling araw na ito'y ang huling sugo -- si Kapatid na Felix Manalo." This is a self-proclamation which is unbiblical and therefore just one of those lies.

Iglesia Ni Cristo claimed they are being branded as of the devil which proved that they are the real church of Christ

PASUGO Nobyembre 1954, p. 2, 1:
“Hindi kailangang patunayan pa kung hindi tunay na Iglesia, kung ito'y kay Cristo o hindi. Ang pag-uusig na nagaganap sa INK, na siyang katuparan ng pinagpauna ng Panginoon ay siyang malinaw na katunayan na ang INK ay tunay na Iglesia at kay Cristo. Anu-ano ang mga kinathang kasinungalingan na ipinaparatang kay Jesus an nakasisirang puri! Hindi lamang nila sinasabing siya'y may demonyo, kundi pinaparatangang siya'y nauulol (John 15:20). Kung siya'y inusig tao man ay uusigin din. Ang pag-uusig sa Ulo at tagos hanggang sa katawan. Siya ang ulo, tayo ang mga sangkap, na siyang Iglesia."

Felix Manalo with his ministers condemned the Catholic Church as of the devil
  PASUGO Oktubre 1956, p. 1:
“Ang Iglesia ni Cristo ay nagdaos ng pamamahayag sa Lunsod ng Davao. Nagsalita roon si Kapatid na Felix Manalo at ang kasama niyang mga Ministro. Ipinahayag doon ng mga nagsalita na ang Iglesia Katolika Romana ay hindi itinatag ni Cristo kundi itinatag ng Diablo."
According to Felix Manalo the Catholic Church was founded by the devil not by Jesus. So therefore, the Jesus Christ who appeared to the apostles and commanded St Peter was the devil himself in - Matthew 16:18 "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." When a person like Felix Manalo begins with lies, there will be contradictions to all his teachings. And here is the clincher, he claimed that the church that Jesus founded apostatized which re-emerged in 1914 is actually his church the Iglesia Ni Cristo. Therefore, based on his statement in Davao City, he stressed that the Catholic Church was not founded by the Jesus but by the devil, so that church that apostatized and now the Iglesia Ni Cristo is really of the devil. Are we now clear on this?  

PASUGO Octobre 1959, p. 5“Mga magdaraya at anti-Cristo, ang mga nagtuturong si Cristo ay Dios." Then to nail down his argument, he declared that anyone who teaches that Jesus Christ is God is an Antichrist. Then he again contradicts these two verses: 1 John 4:2-3 [2] By this is the spirit of God known. Every spirit which confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God: [3] And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and he is now already in the world. Verse 2 expressed that those who accepts Jesus is God who come in the flesh is of God but verse 3 otherwise say that anyone who destroys the Divinity of Jesus is of the devil. 

PASUGO August 1961, p. 39: “Kaya sa wakas ng lathalang ito, dapat na nating itakuwil and mga paring katoliko at ang mga pastor protestante, sapagka't sila'y mga ministro ni Satanas. Dapat din nating itakuwil ang Iglesia Katolika at ang iba't ibang iglesia protestante, sapagka't sila'y hindi sa Diyos, kundi sila'y kay Satanas o sa demonyo. Ang pagtatakuwul ninyo sa kanila at sa kanilang mga maling aral ay pagsunod ninyo sa Diyos, kay Cristo at sa mga Apostol.

PASUGO August 1962, p. 9: “Kaya ang tunay na anti-Cristo, ang mga Papa ng Iglesia Katolika Apostolika Romana. At ang tunay na ampon ng anti-Cristo ay ang mga Katoliko.”
 

PASUGO Disyembre 1965, p. 5:
“Kaninong Ministro kung ganyan ang mga Paring Katoliko? Mga Ministro ni Satanas na Diablo."

Take note of what Felix Manalo had taught his members in 
Pasugo August 1961 p. 39 "...sa kanilang mga maling aral...", besides condemning the Catholic Church and her priests and all the protestant churches and their pastors and ministers are of the devil but also all their teachings which were all from the bible (both Catholic and Protestant bibles).  

SYLLOGISM:
Not only Iglesia Ni Cristo condemned both the Catholic Church and all Protestant Churches as of the devil, they likewise condemned the priests and the ministers of these churches. Further, they also condemned all their teachings as of the devil. 

The protestants' bible versions were all translated from the original Catholic bible and both the Catholic Church and the Protestant churches use and have based all their doctrines and teachings from these bible versions and translations, since Iglesia Ni Cristo is also using the Protestants' bible versions, therefore all their teachings are also from the devil

If you will thoroughly read the whole life story of Felix Manalo aka self-proclaimed angel, messenger, worm Jacob, Messiah and King Solomon as well as his womanizing and raping issues, morally you can already tell he has started everything from the wrong foot and has grossly misrepresented Holy Bible's written prophecies as pertaining to himself and therefore everything he taught was not correct and therefore were lies and perversions.  


Felix Manalo not only destroyed the Divinity of Jesus but branded Him as liar: 

Matthew 16:18 And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

PASUGO Mayo 1961, p. 21: “Maliwanag sa pag-aaral nating ginagawa sa unahan nito na ang Iglesiang itinayo ni Cristo noong unang siglo ay natalikod o ganap na nawala sa ibabaw ng lupa. Inagaw nila sa pagsunod sa hulihan ni Cristo." 

In this message by Felix Manalo and his INC claims that it is very clear in their studies they found out that the universal church that Jesus founded upon Peter, the rock has turned her back from Jesus and totally was wiped out from the face of the earth. 

They did not believe Jesus when He said: "...and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." This is why they insist that Jesus was just a man and not God because God cannot lie. Yet they worship Jesus as "Lord".

Felix Manalo discredit and disregard St. Peter:

St. Peter said that no prophecy of scripture is made by private interpretation. But Felix Manalo did exactly otherwise to discredit St. Peter - the rock upon whom Jesus founded His church. He established his own church - Iglesia Ni Cristo on the basis of his own interpretation of bible prophecies to match his own plan of salvation for all the members of his church -INC.

2 Peter 1:20 "No prophecy of scripture is made by private interpretation: This shews plainly that the scriptures are not to be expounded by any one's private judgment or private spirit, because every part of the holy scriptures were written by men inspired by the Holy Ghost, and declared as such by the Church; therefore they are not to be interpreted but by the Spirit of God, which he hath left, and promised to remain with his Church to guide her in all truth to the end of the world. Some may tell us, that many of our divines interpret the scriptures: they may do so, but they do it always with a submission to the judgment of the Church, and not otherwise."

This part of the verse "For prophecy came not by the will of man at any time" is explained: but the holy men of God spoke, inspired by the Holy Ghost. 

Only holy men are inspired by the Holy Spirit.

So if a man interprets scriptures without being under submission to the judgment of the Church, could he be holy still? So if any messenger had been accused a rapist, was he holy? If a man sired children from other women not of his wife, was he holy? If his ministers and deacons killed innocent people inside INC's own chapel while they pleaded for their lives, where they doing the teachings of their founder-teacher, so is the founder of INC holy? If one usurped prophecy to himself was he holy? If this messenger who died with burst intestine like Judas Iscariot was he holy?

The Iglesia ni Cristo says that the official name of the true church is "Church of Christ or Iglesia ni Cristo (in Filipino)"

Church of Christ has already been registered and founded by Warren Stone and Alexander Campbell in 1836 in U.S.A. therefore Iglesia Ni Cristo's claim on this is just a big lie.

The two passages often cited by INC to support this are Romans 16:16 "Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you" and the George Lamsa translation of Acts 20:28: "Take heed therefore . . . to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood" The Catholic's bible (original) version:  [Acts 20:28] "Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood."

Notice how the original texts were change to pervert the teachings and doctrines in the Bible:
  • Romans 16:16 "churches of Christ" to "Church of Christ" from a descriptive to a proper noun.
  • Acts 20:28 "God" was changed to "Christ" to change the meaning of the verse when read literally...though Jesus is also God but the Iglesia Ni Cristo used this protestant bible to invent the "Church of Christ". This is perversion or corruption of the bible.
Iglesia Ni Cristo do not worship Jesus Christ as God but worship him as a man only (no Divinity). . What a perversion? Isn't worship of man an idolatry? Worship is only for God, right? Therefore Jesus is truly God.

George Lamsa's translation of Acts 20:28 ".....church of Christ......." literally is talking about the church that Jesus Christ have founded. It was not meant to denote as a name of a church. Jesus Christ's church is one, holy, universal and apostolic church. So in essence Acts 20:28 is talking about the one, holy, universal and apostolic church of Jesus Christ. Definitely has nothing to do with the name Iglesia Ni Cristo 1914 by Felix Manalo. Any attempt to change the meaning and changing "church of Christ" into "Church of Christ" from descriptive to a proper name is purely a corruption and perversion.

Iglesia Ni Cristo teaches Felix is the 5th angel in Revelation 7 

Many members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo had actually confirmed in forums or attested one way or another that Felix Manalo was indeed the angel as prophesied in Revelation 7.


However, PASUGO in 1940 p.12-13 says otherwise: "Ang tao ay talagang tao at ang anghel nama'y talagang angel. Ang tao ay hindi anghel at ang anghel ay hindi tao... Kaya't huwag ninyong hintayin patunayan namin na ang tao ay maaaring maging anghel, sapagka't iya'y hindi maari. Hindi kami naniniwala na ang tao ay Anghel -Walang taong anghel."

But Jose Ventilacion, INC's main debater specifically mentioned in his debate Iglesia Ni Cristo Vs Roman Catholic Church Full Debate in Cebu 2014 (click to watch part 6:00-7:20 minutes) with Catholic Faith Defender, that "in Revelation 7, Felix Manalo was mentioned as the angel descending from the East" meaning the 5th Angel on verse 2

It seems that all the teachings of Manalo and the actual words of his ministers are at times disagree with each other. The only logical reason is that there is no real truth and therefore their words, teachings and doctrines are not and never will be consistent with what are in the bible - the biblical truth.


Iglesia Ni Cristo's angel-Felix Manalo taught his ministers wrongly so that his ministers don't really know which one is true or false, they wrote them anyway:   

PASUGO Hulyo 1953, p. 15: (sinulat ni Joaquin Balmores)
“Kami raw na mga Iglesia ni Cristo ay nagtatangi ng mga tao. Sinasarili raw namin ang kaligtasan. Iyan ay hindi totoo, at kung may nasasabi niyan sa amin sa kasalukuyan, iyan ay bunga ng malaking kadiliman na naghahari sa kanyang buong pagkatao. 

Minister Balmores belies that Iglesia Ni Cristo sole claim that salvation is only for members of their sect and that it was just a product of darkness that envelops his whole being. Question: Who is this person that minister Joaquin Balmores is mentioning? Could he be Felix Manalo? 

But 13 years later, minister Tomas C. Catangay wrote that anyone who worship God but do not belong to Iglesia Ni Cristo truly will not be saved. So Minister Catangay contradicting Minister Balmores. Are we seeing the real picture now of what really is going on inside the Iglesia Ni Cristo sect? Both ministers were claiming differently. Minister Balmores claimed based on what he probably knew from the beginning before or even during his time with INC. Minister Catangay was simply following along the line where Felix Manalo taught that there is no salvation outside INC. 

Here is what minister Catangay wrote 13 years later.   

PASUGO Agosto 1966, p.13: (sinulat ni Tomas C. Catangay)
“Totoo na kailangan ng tao ang pananampalataya upang maligtas, ngunit kung siya'y hindi Iglesia ni Cristo, tiyak na hindi siya maliligtas’



This statement is full of ignorance of God's Plan of Salvation for whole mankind not only for Iglesia Ni Cristo members. This is the lie concocted by the Devil and being taught by the devil's cohorts. Jesus Christ died to save whole of mankind.

The Truth about Iglesia Ni Cristo 1914

The True Church is the Catholic Church according to INC.

PASUGO Mayo 1968, p. 7:
“Ang tunay na INK ay iisa lamang. Ito ang Iglesiyang itinayo ni Cristo. Kung mayroon mang nagsisibangon ngayong mga Iglesia at sasabihing sila man ay Iglesia ni Cristo rin, ang mga ito ay hindi tunay na Iglesia ni Cristo kundi huwad lamang."
Pasugo July August 1988 pp. 6.
“Even secular history shows a direct time link between the Catholic Church and the Apostles, leading to the conclusion that the true Church of Christ is the Catholic Church.”
PASUGO Nobyembre 1940, p. 23:
“Iisa lamang ang tanging makapagtatayo ng Iglesiang magiging dapat sa Dios. Kung sino-- ang ating Panginoong Jesu-Cristo lamang! Sino mang tao-- maging marunong o mangmang, maging dakila o hamak-- ay walang karapatang magtayo ng Iglesia"

PASUGO Mayo 1954, p. 9:
“Alin ang tunay na Iglesia? Ang Iglesiang itinayo ni Cristo sa Jerusalem."


The Catholic Church's Contribution to Iglesia Ni Cristo 1914


There may be friends from the Iglesia Ni Cristo (originally Iglesia ni Kristo) who will be jovially celebrating their sect’s 100th Anniversary this weekend. This marks their church’s 100th year of thriving from July 27, 1914, the date their sect has been registered in the Securities and Exchange Commission during the American rule. Along with your chatter with your INC friends about their sect’s achievements and assets, let us also share to them some of the significant contributions that our Holy Mother Church had unselfishly endowed to them for their use. (read more....)     

Is Iglesia Ni Cristo a cult?

What is the meaning of "cult"? according to dictionary, here is what the word signifies:
  • a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister. "a network of Satan-worshiping cults"
    synonyms:
    sect, denomination, group, movement, church, persuasion, body, faction
    "a religious cult"
  • a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.
    "a cult of personality surrounding the leaders"

There are two kinds of cult: of God and of the Devil.
A good cult is a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object. "the cult of St. Olaf"


A bad cult a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister. "a network of Satan-worshiping cults"



A bad cult is misplaced or with excessive admiration for a particular person or thing. "a cult of personality surrounding the leaders" There is obsession with, fixation on, mania for, passion for, idolization of,devotion to, worship of, veneration of the leader.

Learn more about the: Truth Behind Iglesia Ni Cristo (link)

A member who has witnessed the delusion speaks
  • Members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, unlike the rest of us Filipinos, are not allowed to think for themselves when it comes to interpretation of the Bible.
  • They must submit to the official interpretation of Scripture from the Central Administration of the Iglesia Ni Cristo. 
  • If any member disagrees with the interpretation of the Scriptures as taught by the Central Administration of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, they are cast out and told they are damned into the flames of hell.  This is a frightening and extremely traumatic experience, so devastating to a person's life, employment, and careers, few can escape and live a normal life.
  • The force by which members of INC are intimidated to stay in the membership is tremendous, especially those who are second, third, and fourth generation.  By now they are brainwashed in the cult's teachings and convinced they are in the true Church of Christ.
  • Membership in this group has increased in recent years due to the lack of public information that would exposed the INC as a cult group and its doctrine and teachings non-biblical.
  • The internet may serve as the only means a person can find information about the cult they are in and doctrinal information that may set their minds free from the religious bondage associated with INC.
  • Many feel scared and threatened by the manner the group is held so tightly in the grip of such few men and women of power. Add to this religious fear that there may be a hit squad (religious mafia), authorized to enact the death penalty upon those who depart, and members become prisoners of conscience in a nation where there is supposed to be freedom of religion by all citizens protected by the government.
  • In the Philippines it is well known that different levels of government have given the INC use of military, police, and other enforcement bodies the power to persecute, arrest, and abuse anyone who openly opposes INC.
  • The infiltration of the Philippine government by INC members on all levels makes it dangerous to confront the false doctrines being taught in INC churches.
  • Even the Catholic church and its priest and bishops are intimidated by the power of the INC in the Philippine offices of government. 
  • Eventually, there may be open conflict where Catholics and INC members battle it out.  Only time will tell if there will be great bloodshed. 
  • Does the Philippine Republic already have a shadow government in the hands of Erdy son of Felix angel?  Many think so! Why do so many politicians and presidents go to this group and lobby for the millions of votes in their block balloting, and then once in office seek counsel at INC headquarters before making serious national decisions?  Is this not evidence of a shadow government?
  • What is the solution of protecting the future civil rights of Philippine citizens and freedom of religious expression including making converts? Government reports seem to say all is well in the Philippines except for the Islamic unrest and a few Communist still trying to level the economic playing field between the poor and the rich.
  • INC does not like other religious groups trying to convert its members. Splinter groups of INC and their leaders are constantly harassed, threatened, and openly abused by government agencies.
  • The national government in the Philippines must enact and enforce laws that prohibits officials of the government from discriminating against and abusing religious groups.
  •  Any religious group whose members carry out directives using government offices and police powers must be denied existence in the Republic.
  •  Such individuals and religious groups should upon indictment and found guilty, be denied property ownership and all existing property subject to taxation commencing the year in which such acts or violations occurred.
  • Any employee or official on any level of government, from the President down to the Barangay Council, who in any way allow any religious leader to persuade them to perform any act not authorized by a court order, should be removed from office or employment immediately.
  • Any denial of any civil right of a Citizen or Guest (those legally in the country by visa), because of religious expression should be guilty of a crime.  Such should be removed from employment or office and banned the rest of their life from all government employment or political positions.
  • Any government contracts held by any business entity guilty of complicity in such activity should be canceled and such business closed down.
  • It is wrong for any religious group to have preference over others and given the right to execute vigilantism using employees and political office holders of the Philippine government on all levels. 
  • It is reported that the INC has infiltrated employment positions containing power and authority on all levels of the Philippine government. 
  • It is reported that these employees have used their positions for the benefit and power of INC staff and leaders. 
  • It is also reported that INC has also infiltrated all levels of Government and these public servants have used their offices and power for the benefit of the INC and its staff and leaders. 




WARNING!
  • While there may not be wide-spread executions and death squads searching for fleeing members of INC or those who publicly disagree with INC policy and doctrines, just one such case of torture, beheading, burning and killing, the knowledge of which is spread from province to province, is enough to keep members and dissenters not to question practices of INC or its doctrines. 
  • Anyone who challenges the INC is currently in danger of limb, body, and life!
Watch this and find out how four (4) Deacons murdered hapless victims inside the church compound shown below in the presence of their church Pastor  (Minister) and the night security guard on duty who was supposed to protect anyone from harm and crime. This was witnessed by a lady church member who had to tell the truth about what she saw the night of the murder. 



  • That is why such writings as this must be done anonymously so as to escape retaliation and maybe death.
  • This kind of religious power should not be enjoyed by any religion upon the earth in any nation.
  • When any religion has a licence to eradicate whom it will, the world is not safe and there will be no people who have a free conscience and the liberty of free speech. 
  • Such religion deserves to be wiped out and all property confiscated.
  • When any religion needs or uses the power of civil government to enact penalties against dissenters, it is no longer religious.
Warning!


Memorandum of Instruction


(Translation) 
Main Teachings of the Beliefs of Iglesia Ni Cristo for the glory of God.

  • Do not destroy the unity of the church even when voting or other works for it is a sin that could lead to expulsion (excommunication )from the church.
  • About our keeping our hope, continue to be within the Iglesia Ni Cristo who is following to the end....
     

Since When voting for other candidates other than what INC's chose a sin? This is not only heretical and unbiblical but a real sign of invented doctrines of the Iglesia Ni Cristo cult.  This is not a sin against God. This is only disobedience against Iglesia ni Cristo central administration's memorandum of instruction but never a sin against God.


No matter what everyone is instructed to stay inside the church but did not say 
anything about being sinless in the eyes of God nor to obey and live God's 
Commandments.

There are more things to hidden secrets behind the Iglesia Ni Cristo's facade.
How can a church like theirs claim they are the true church when ministers and deacons commit heinous crimes like rapes and murders? 
More Secret Lies - How many more lies are secretly (LINK) covered up and archived?   



Unbiblical Beliefs of Felix angel and INC
 
One of the biggest lies of the 20th Century!
The last sentence denotes that INC 
truly claimed it was Jesus who 
established INC's church. 
  • Believe Jesus returned in some manner to set up his end time church on July 27, 1914, the INC was founded as the Church of Christ.  If asked by an INC member what other Church was born on the day Jesus returned, the answer will be none.  Aha they will say, this proves Felix angel is the last messenger and the Iglesia Ni Cristo is the true Church.  But wait!  Did Jesus return on July 27, 1914?
  • Believe that the Jehovah's Witnesses were right, Jesus returned to earth in 1914, and this is the year Jesus re-activated his Church, the Iglesia Ni Cristo by the agency of Felix angel, the angel of Rev. 7:2-3

  • Felix Manalo wrote "This I asked
    of you not to turn back from your
    faithful service  and love of God,
    to Jesus who is our Lord,
    the Word of God written in the Bible
    ,
    the  Church of Christ in the Philippines
    and the messages of God at the End of Days."

  • Believe Jesus is not God, only a man created by God: Manalo said Jesus was no more God than he was. (Comment: YET MANALO TEACHES TO WORSHIP THE MAN JESUS  - PLAIN IDOLATRY TO ANOTHER MAN. WORSHIP IS FOR GOD ALONE. MAN CAN HONOR AND RESPECT ANOTHER MAN BUT NEVER WORSHIP OTHERWISE THAT IS IDOLATRY.) 
  • Believe that Jesus being a man needed salvation also and saved himself by the merits of his own death, the same merits that saved others.
  • Believe the Holy Spirit is not God, but a created spirit-being sent by God.
  • Believes the Word of John 1:1 and John 1:14 is the mind or foreknowledge of God about Jesus but when it says "God was the Word, or the Word was God" this is false.
  • Believes Jesus, a created man, must be worshiped as God, because the Father said so.
  • Believes the Church of Matthew 16:18 is the Iglesia Ni Cristo denomination which Felix Manalo allegedly restored because he discovered the Catholic Church and all other Protestant groups were of the devil. The false angel (Felix Manalo was not told by God but only discovered after joining several Protestant churches and learning from their different 66 books Bible versions and translations. a true angel need not study different religious beliefs before declaring something based on his own discovery. Is this discovery biblical? Did God the Father said so? Far from it!
  • Believe a person must hear the Gospel from Central Administration and an INC minister only.
  • Believe a person must be a member of only an INC church, membership in any other will send a soul to the flames of hell.
  • Believe a person must accept and believe what is preached in an INC church, or they cannot be saved.
  • Believe salvation is only found in the INC denomination. 
  • Believe the INC churches can save just as much as Christ saves. (???)
  • Believe the INC church is the only one with the Holy Spirit in it, which Holy Spirit is not God but some other created spirit being sent to help members understand the Bible.
  • Believe the Biblical name of the Christian Church is "Iglesia Ni Cristo" while other names are false.
  • Believes the official Biblical name of the church is "Iglesia ni Cristo" while other names are not (did not know the words "Iglesia Ni Cristo" are not Aramaic or Hebrew and cannot be the ORIGINAL words or name of the New Testament Church).
  • Believes baptisms are only valid if performed by a minister of INC.
  • Believes baptisms can be performed invoking the titles Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • Believes in Acts 2:38 baptism for the remission of sins, but denies baptisms are to be into the name of Jesus Christ, rather interpreting "in" (EIS) to mean by the authority of Jesus Christ.
  • Believe in "no name" baptismal formula: meaning they do not believe  it is essential to invoke the titles Father, Son, or Holy Spirit; or the name of Jesus Christ over a baptismal candidate for the act to be valid. Baptism can be done with nothing said or repeated to or over the baptismal candidate. (Then it is not Baptism of the Holy Spirit rather of the devil.)

"Graven images of Bro. Felix? Seriously? Where? Give me a single photo or source to back up your statement. Never have we bowed before a graven image of Bro. Felix, NEVER!" (Says one of the members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo) 






Erano Manalo - The head of Iglesia Ni Cristo

is disgruntled about INC's workers (Ministers

and Deacons) for stealing from the church coppers.

And he did not single out a few but he mentioned all.

  • Believe a person must obey all church rules. Church rules have the effect of being the Word of God by being an abridgment to the New Testament Cannon, and commanded of God for salvation because Felix angel said so.  INC officials have the authority to make God accept their adopted or revised rules as essential elements of salvation (they can make up salvation as they go along).
  • Believe Church members should not belong to labor unions.
Freemasons
  • Believe it is ok for members and officials to have membership in secret societies such as the Masonic lodge
  • Believe Church attendance is compulsory and if a person is not faithful they should be excluded from Communion.
  • Believe all members should give demanded offerings or be excluded from church activities and religious worship.
  • Believe good deeds and works specified by the INC are salvational and add to one’s safety and chance to have eternal life.  Those who refuse to do these INC good deeds and works are damned into the flames of hell.
  • Believe members should not eat "dinuguan" (pork blood stew with pork meat and other spices).  They cite no scripture.


Erdy Manalo (in circle - the head of Iglesia Ni Cristo after his 
father Felix Manalo the founder of the church), Benjamin Santiago, 
Teofilo C. Ramos, Cipriano Sandoval and other brothers in church 
were one of those who attended the wedding anniversary of Bro. 
Teofilo C. Ramos and wife. At the background is the Christmas 
decors (in circle) they despised as being a pagan practice. Then
 why is there such a decor in this very important event if they 
despise paganism? 


What Iglesia Ni Cristo preaches is not what 
they do in real life! - the HYPOCRACY beyond doubt.























"Ang Aking Pang-Aginaldo" is about "Pasko" or Christmas
He said "PASKO na naman" means "It is Christmas time again." 


Another Pasugo about Christmas. When things they say are not true that 
is when they are not consistent because action speaks louder and visible. 
These are just one of those untrue things about Iglesia Ni Cristo.


















"MERRY CHRISTMAS KA ERDE AND INC"
Iglesia Ni Cristo denounced Christmas 
as pagan practice but they practice it anyway. 
Who is the lying here?
  • Believe Christmas is pagan, more so because of being anti Catholic, but celebrate the pagan new year’s eve with great ceremony, pomp, and parade. INC never tells its members that it was Pope Gregory who changed the date of the New Year from the month of March to the first day of the month named after the Roman god Janus (god of time and opener and closer of doors).
  • Believe members should avoid court actions against other members, but court actions against non-member is acceptable.
  • Believe the Church has the right to tell its members how to vote and members are expected to vote exactly how the Church tells them (block voting to control elections and election outcome). (They are more of being politicians and debaters than being religious.)
  • Believe a person can take Communion only if they are paid up.  If a person is not paid up they can buy their salvation and the ransom of their souls by putting cash into the Church in those offerings they have missed. With these cash offerings they are allowed to take Communion and buy their salvation. (So salvation is now for sale and Communion cannot be received if not paid? No wonder Iglesia Ni Cristo is accumulating a lot of money. Are non-members allowed to buy in salvation without joining Iglesia ni Cristo - Buying salvation (the error of one of the priest in his Parish in Germany) was the very reason Martin Luther went against the Catholic Church that led to his excommunication and the birth of Protestantism. Yet Iglesia Ni Cristo is very much into it - this is simply 'love of money' to which Jesus explained is 'idolatry'. )
  • Believes Felix Y. Manalo is the fulfillment of Isaiah 43:5-7 (bring thy seed from the east is not the Israelites to whom Isaiah wrote, but Manalo claims this is the Philippine people in his Iglesia Ni Cristo Church; those called by "my name" Manalo means the name "Christian" although God was speaking of his own name); 46:11 (the ravenous (unclean) bird is Manalo, and "east" here is said to mean the "far east" or the Philippine Islands); and Rev. 7:2-3 prophecies (the angel ascending is Felix Y. Manalo and he, by the preaching and acceptance of his doctrine are sealed in their forehead, that is their mind.  Thus the members of the INC churches are sealed by Manalo to be the people of God saved out of the tribulation time).  Yet Manalo was a pre-trib rapture believer, holding that the church, his Iglesia Ni Cristo, will not see or suffer tribulation but will be quick-snatched as taught in the dispensationalism of John Darby, Clarence Larkin, and C.I. Scofield.

After 30 years they finally realize no one is buying on their lies & that they can no longer prove their claim about "Far East" they have to retract. What happen to the words of their angel-messenger-god Felix Manalo? Truly they really have no doctrine, they just based their teachings from corrupted & perverted protestant bibles e.g. Lamsa and Moffatt versions. - Silent Crusader
  • Believes in a pre-trib any second rapture (this false doctrine scares INC members to stay in their cult, being told there is salvation no where else). (Is this INC's scare tactic approach?)
  • Believes the millennial as found in Revelation 20 as a literal 1,000 years is false.  Manalo and INC do not believe in the millennial.  They spiritualize the millennial to be the church age of Iglesia Ni Cristo. ???
  • Believe in soul sleep when a person dies: that is a person's soul upon death dies and there is no consciousness, and the soul is resurrected with the body at the coming of Jesus (stolen from the doctrine of the Seventh Day Adventists Church and women preacher Ellen G. White).
  • Believe the modern receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues is of the devil.
  • Believe speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance as in Acts 2:4, ceased in the life-time of the Apostles and is not to be continued after the first century.
  • Believe all the gifts of the Spirit are abolished and ended as a result of the finish writing of the Bible and the collection of such into one volume called the Cannon of Scripture.
  • Believe (Jesus') miracles of healing and deliverance are all of the devil, that these ceased and ended when the Bible was fully a completed book.
Iglesia Ni Cristo claimed and believed Felix Manalo is (6):
1. Ravenous Bird
2. Messiah
3. Worm Jacob
4. 5th Angel (wingless)
5. Last Messenger

6. A.k.a King Solomon 

Manalo = 6 + 66 Books Bible versions he used = 666.

(womanizer & rapist)
Can Felix Manalo the man below claimed all his title above as biblical?
Are members of his church blind or enlightened believers?
The Last Messenger of God Until The End of the World
  • Believe Felix Manalo is the Shepherd of John 10:16. He is the one to go bring sheep not of the fold and bring them in. These sheep not of the fold are the Philippine people and those the INC will win from different Gentile nations.
  • Jose Ventilacion on the other hand unknowingly and actually admitted indirectly that Jesus Christ is God during his debate with a Catholic Faith Defender in Cebu City Philippines on July 11, 2014. He specifically mentioned as one of his major points in his arguments that: Felix Manalo is the messenger utilized by Christ, the messenger the instrument used by Christ in order that he could again establish the church of Christ in the Philippines. Please listen to the part in between 0:06:00-07:30 minutes of the debate (click this link). Iglesia Ni Cristo says Felix Manalo is the "Last Messenger of God" and it was Jesus Christ who sent him. Are we clear on this?
Felix Manalo claimed with firmness "MY CHURCH" hmmm not 
Church of Christ? So it should be Manalo's Church. Right?
Notice how arrogant Felix Manalo his words are. 
Felix Manalo is urging his members not to be afraid of know one
short to say fight or murder them .... as in the murder cases
shown here.

  • Believe Felix Manalo is the seven (angel) church age messenger of Revelation 10:7.  It would be Felix Manalo then who would finalize all doctrine, faith, and practice and after his finished work no one would have authority in matters of salvation but the Iglesia Ni Cristo church. [MANALO'S CHURCH AND HERE WERE HIS VERY WORDS.]
  • Believe Felix Manalo is the messenger of the covenant of Malachi 3:1.
  • Believe in several forced offerings and object to tithing, claiming tithing was under the law and a person is obligated to give more under the New Testament.
  • Believe the name of the Church according to the New Testament is "Iglesia Ni Cristo" when in fact this name is not found in the Bible at all!  The nearest a person will find to this is in Romans 16:16 "Churches of Christ".  Here "Churches" is plural and is the collective group of congregations and not one organization.  This "Churches of Christ" was never intended to mean or was used by the Apostles to be the name of the New Testament Church.  Elsewhere the Church is called the "Church of God" (Acts 20:28); "My Church" (Matthew 16:18); "Church of the living God"(1 Tim 3:15); "Church of the firstborn" (Heb 12:23); "Church of the Laodiceans" (Col 4:16, Rev 3:14); "Church of the Thessalonians" (1Thes 1:1); and "Church of Ephesus" (Rev 2:1).  Manalo was a deceiver about the name of the New Testament Church.  The word "Church" is the Greek "ekklesia" Strongs 1577 and means: "called out ones, a congregation, a synagogue, an assembly, and a community of members." In Romans 16:16 the word "Churches" refers to the congregations plural with whom Paul was Minister and Apostle. These were the Gentile Churches who saluted the Roman Gentile Church, all being grafted branches into the Olive Tree original Jewish Church.  These Gentile branch Churches were NOT THE ORIGINAL JEWISH CHURCH of Jerusalem, but of the same body by grafting in.  Manalo thinks he can deceive the Philippine people that his Iglesia Ni Cristo is the original Jewish Church and he has restored that: when in fact, he has a Gentile Philippine Church that has no connection to the New Testament Olive Tree body at all. He is not connected to it by doctrine of salvation, by water baptism, or by name! His false doctrines on salvation, the name of the Church, the formula and practice of baptism, his denial of Holy Spirit baptism as the first Church had in Acts 2:4, his claim of being the Christ-Shepherd of John 10:16, a Messias (according to court records of his fornication with girls and women), a prophet Charlton, a fraud, a wolf-man who has deceived many sheep; and last, ...he is a Judas!  He betrayed his own people for their cash and deceived them to believe Jesus was no more God then he was.
  • Believe Manalo's private interpretations and accept his rejection of the King James Version being authoritative, seeking out any perversion translation that might prove his heresies true.
(Translation of PASUGO August, 1961 page 39) At the end of this issue, we must now condemned all Catholic Priests and Protestant Pastors, because they are the ministers of Satan. We must also condemned the Catholic Church and the many other Protestant Churches, for they are not of God, because they are of Satan or the devil. When you condemn them and their wrong teachings you obey God, Christ and the Apostles.

YET IGLESIA NI CRISTO IS USING THE PROTESTANT
BIBLES FROM THE CHURCHES THEY CONDEMNED AS
OF THE DEVIL, THEREFORE THEIR TEACHINGS
AND DOCTRINES WHICH THEY QUOTED FROM
PROTESTANT'S BIBLE TRANSLATIONS AND
VERSIONS ARE OF THE DEVIL AS WELL.
  • Believe the Catholic Church is of the devil and the pope is the antichrist, yet Manalo did not see himself as a quasi-pope of INC.
  • Believe all Protestant churches are of the devil.
  • Believe the Seventh Day Adventists (SDA) Church is of the devil and Ellen G. White was false on Sabbath keeping (The Great Controversy).
  • Believe the Church of Christ (USA doctrine type) and the Disciples of Christ (Christian Church) are of the devil


  1. Manalo was however successful to take the large number of Church of Christ (American style) and members of the Disciples of Christ and convert them to his anti-Christ religion. 
  2. While Felix Manalo condemned the CHURCH OF CHRIST and the disciples of Christ as churches of the devil, yet he recruited members from these two churches to grow his own Iglesia Ni Cristo sect. 
  3. This allowed him fast growth not needing to make converts of sinners to enlarge his organization. 
  4. He also recruited both Catholics and Protestants whom he already condemned as of the devils. 
  5. By conversion of Ministers from these groups there was no need to educate, train, or financially support them.  Conversions gave Felix Manalo & his new ministers ready income source from medium to wealthy individuals who pumped in the pesos by the billions. 
  6. Love of money is idolatry according to Jesus. 
  7. With insider connections and power, faithful church members were selected and given employments by other Iglesia Ni Cristo members in positions where they refused to hire non Iglesia Ni Cristo candidates.  This practice is used even in governmental hiring where there are individuals in power position who make policy and final decisions on hiring.  
  8. When two people are candidates of equal education and experience, the job will fall to the one who is a member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church.  This not only allows members jobs and positions others do not have available to them, it guarantees the church bigger offerings and enormous cash flow increases.  
  9. Many Filipinos know this and so they join the Church for financial reason, the financial doors that will be opened to them. 
  10. Business owners join to expand their influence and capture more market share, even to obtain loans from banks where other Iglesia Ni Cristo members hold positions and authority to float business opportunity loans.

  • Believe Felix Manalo was ordained to subdue kings and with a sword turn them to dust (Iglesia claims Manalo fulfills Isaiah 41:2).  No one shows he did this. [MAYBE HE CLAIMED AS WELL THAT HE DID.]
  • Believe God took hold of Manalo's hand as found in Isaiah 41:13-14. By claiming this for himself he mistranslated and likewise called himself the worm Jacob as well using these verses thereby disregarding and replacing the real Jacob of the old testament. [13] For I am the Lord thy God, who take thee by the hand, and say to thee: Fear not, I have helped thee. [14] Fear not, thou worm of Jacob, you that are dead of Israel: I have helped thee, saith the Lord: and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel. Little that the next generations did not know for Erano Manalo had downplayed and covered up was Felix Manalo declaration at the court of law in the Philippines (duly recorded), worst that a man can do at the present times, that he also was the messiah - Jesus Christ who re-established the church of Christ (supposed to be the apostate Catholic Church) in July 27, 1914. 
  • But like Judas the self-proclaiming Felix Manalo died with bloated stomach that burst inside when he died just like Judas who jumped to hang himself from a tree burst his belly out and spilled all over. When Judas left the Last Supper, the devil took over him... in similar passion, evil must have taken over Felix Manalo.
In this video are three self-proclaimed Messiah, 
no different than another self-proclaimed Messenger.
They are all birds of the same feathers, just different colors. 
  • Believe Manalo was to thresh the mountains and crush them and reduce them to chaff as found in Isaiah 41:15       
The self-proclaimed
Felix Manalo as the Fifth Angel
 
  • Believe the fifth angel crying to the first four angels and rising from the east in Revelation 7:2-3 is Felix Manalo rising to power in a restored Church in the Philippines.
  • Believe Manalo as the fifth angel is the one to seal the servants of God, his new cadre of Ministers with the seal of God and these Ministers will in turn seal other converts and members of Iglesia Ni Cristo.  Actually the fifth angel does have a seal but tells the first four angels not to hurt the earth til "WE HAVE SEALED THE SERVANTS OF GOD IN THEIR FOREHEAD.  We can now uncover the deception of Manalo, when he claims it is the ordained Ministers of INC who will do the sealing of the servants.  The text says five angels will do the sealing.  As we read further we discover the sealing is of 144,000 of the tribes of Israel and not of a Gentile Philippine Church membership.  Manalo never did prove the 144,000 were servants of Iglesia Ni Cristo and these Philippine sealed could trace their ancestry back to the twelve tribes.
  • Believe the words "angel and angels" in the Revelation text refers to a man or men, and not spirit beings of the heavenly realm.  Their argument is that the word is symbolic and that not all angels wear wings.  Of course we know this, there being two angels who came to the tent of Abraham with Adonai, they did not have wings.  There are other visitations of angels without wings.  To claim these were men and not heavenly beings borders in insanity.  For ministers and members of INC to make this argument shows they are not honest and they are willing to pervert to have it their way.
 




  • Nothing in the world or US history that Pres Woodrow Wilson was indicated or recorded as an Angel. He is a Presbyter therefore a Protestant. But Felix Manalo had condemned all Protestants and Catholics as of the devil including all teachings and doctrines. Therefore, according to Felix Manalo, Pres. Wilson would be an angel of the devil. 
  • David Lloyd George of UK is likewise a Protestant, therefore he is also from the devil according to Felix Manalo's condemnation. Prime Minister Vittorio Orlando of Italy has no religion or unknown - so how can someone without a religion be God's Angel? So he is a devil angel too according to Felix Manalo's allegation and teaching.
  • France leader Georges Clemenceau was an Atheist who never believed in God, so how can he be an Angel?

Therefore Felix Manalo is totally wrong again in his allegations the Big 4 leaders of big nations were angels like him. Fact is he never met them at all. Fact is nothing ever recorded in the annals of WWI or world history only in Felix Manalo's teachings within his circle of members. Unfortunately, this allegations came out in the open. 


The present day Iglesia Ni Cristo simply says this was based alone on prophecy. And so the Big 4 died without them knowing they were in fact angels themselves along with Felix Manalo.
  • Believe the appearance of Felix Manalo at the time of World War I was predicted by prophecy: They quote Matthew 24:6-7 and piggyback this to Revelation 6:12-15, claiming the troops hiding in fox holes was the prediction of men hiding in caves and the rocks of the mountains.  How devious and lying can a man get.  The Revelation 6:15 text concerns the actions of men at the appearing of our Great God and Saviour Jesus Christ at his second advent.  This text has nothing to do with war and men hiding in fox holes to escape enemy bullets.  Manalo and his followers then try to piggyback Revelation 7:2-3 and Manalo as the fifth angel to their erroneous interpretation.
  • Believe that since Christ is the head of the Church in Eph 5:23, the Church should then be named Christ, thus Church of Christ or Iglesia Ni Cristo.  Fact of the matter is, Christ is a title and an office of Jesus in Messianic prophecy concerning the seed of David (Daniel 9:25). To be scriptually correct Jesus was never called the Greek title Christ in his life time. This was applied when the Hebrew word Messieh was translated into Greek.  Manalo did not recover the name of Christ for that name is JESUS!  We know this because this is the name given to him at birth and carried down from heaven on the lips of an angel (Luke 1:31).  To be scriptually correct the name of Christ is Jesus and this is the name of his body.  Felix angel was a little nuts to claim the name of the body was the Greek Christ without reference to his name Jesus. Should we apply the name of the body (Jesus), to the Church we would then have its name as Church of Jesus Christ or Iglesia Ni Hesus Cristo, or something on that order.  We can say, the Church was not named after a Greek title that was not the name of Jesus during his life time when he set up and established the Church. In the name on the churches of Iglesia Ni Cristo the saving name JESUS is never ADVERTISED. No Iglesia Ni Cristo Church has the name of JESUS upon the body of it on the inside or the outside as its identity. Manalo again used deception and his followers and ministers continue that evil. Felix angel was blind as a bat and the succession of leaders are following the blind and all will fall into the ditch of destruction.
  • Believe in Acts 20:28 the words "Church of God" should be translated "Church of Christ" or Iglesia Ni Cristo. Manalo and other INC ministers cannot document this "Church of Christ" from the original Greek text, so they found salvation for their false doctrine and perversion of the Greek text by claiming the translation of George M. Lamsa of the Aramaic is correct.  The fact is, Lamsa claims the New Testament was completely written in Aramaic and he was wrong. Scholars believe Matthew was written in Hebrew, Mark was written in Greek or Hebrew, John was written in Greek or Hebrew, but Luke, Acts Corinthians and the Greek letters are in Greek, Romans in Latin, and so forth.  Lamsa's claim of Aramaic is simply false. It is possible all the Gospels but Matthew were written in Greek.  Acts was written by a Greek named Luke and we have no proof he could even read or speak Hebrew.  The text then in Acts 20:28 should carry its weight in Greek and not as Lamsa renders from the Peshitta Aramaic.  Now what are the variant renderings according to true textual criticism?  Here is a look:
Acts 20:28 Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

COMMENTS (edited): 

While it is possible that the phrase "the church of the Lord" (found nowhere else in the New Testament) was replaced with the more familiar "the church of God" (found eleven times in the writings of Paul), it is more likely that "church of God" is original but copyists took offense at "his own blood" and changed "God" to "the Lord" in an attempt to show the blood of Jesus came from his body and not God prepared and created in the body.

When the two words God and Lord are abbreviated, as they often were in manuscripts, there is only one letter difference between them.

The reading "the church of the Lord and God" is a combination of the two readings, as is "the church of the Lord God" which is read by many of the Byzantine manuscripts. 
There is not a single MSS that has Church of Christ.

Such Church of Christ renderings are a fraud and Lamsa's translation of the Peshitta Syriac Aramaic is not translation of first century Aramaic, and no evidence it is a correct copy.

Thus, the doctrine of Manalo and INC ministers that Iglesia Ni Cristo is the correct name of the Church in Acts 20:28 is false. 


Click (here) this link (and read all the way) to connect with the many different bible versions that shows their translation or version of Acts20:28 "Take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood."

The Peshitta is hardly the MSS on which we claim infallibility!

Now we ask the question: is there a Jesus Christ in the Iglesia Ni Cristo denomination? 

The answer is no! The name of Jesus is missing on the building. What is substituted there?  The title "Christ" or "Cristo" is written upon the building. 

Since Felix angel claimed he was the messias, as contained in the 1941 court action ruling, then the title "Cristo" would have been a code to mean Felix angel in his role as messias. Thus, in 1914 when Jesus was alleged to have returned, and Felix angel took the identity of Jesus upon himself, hailing himself to be the messias, Church of Christ or Iglesia Ni Cristo is really in code Iglesia Ni Felix Messias!

There are thousands in the Philippines who will never accept Felix angel and his perversions. That is why millions of Filipinos translate INC to "IGLESIA NO CRISTO." 
Felix Manalo is worshiped and venerated in the place of Jesus Christ.

Examine the following words of Ka Erdy, son of Felix angel: "We must have fellowship with the messenger (FELIX MANALO)...in these last days. 


IDOLATRY! (False God)
Iglesia Ni Cristo believed
Felix Manalo is the Ravenous Bird.

Study 1
Study 2

The movie "The Books of Daniel" if watched in its full entirety will confirm the THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT ISAIAH 46:11. Unfortunately the movie has been removed by the owners for now. However you can study the truth about ASAIAH 46:11 by watching the whole books as narrated in above Study 1 & 2 videos - Was Felix Manalo the prophesied ravenous bird of prey or was it really Cyrus of Persia who was given the task by God to conquer and bring down the proud kingdom of Babylon and rebuild Jerusalem to her full glory?

I dare you to find out the truth about: Isaias (Isaiah) 46:11 for Felix Manalo is not the ravenous bird he said he is. "Who call a bird from the east, and from a far country the man of my own will, and I have spoken, and will bring it to pass: I have created, and I will do it. Hear me, O ye hardhearted, who are far from justice." If you do not watch the movie we will understand that you are not ready to seek the truth. 


Felix Manalo and his ministers.... connected the words 'east' and 'far' and made it 'far east'. This is what we call corruption of the third kind the bible. 
Now who changed the truth to lies? [Romans 1:25] "Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen." The Iglesia Ni Cristo began worshiping Christ as the first creature-the man - of the Creator.


Ka Erdy asked to have faith in his father Felix Manalo than in Jesus Christ

We must have faith in...Brother Felix Manalo..." Ka Erdy's father Felix angel is the center worship of INC. 

What do we have here?  We have the son of the angel telling the world that faith in his father produces some kind of saving grace. 

What kind of faith are followers to have in the Felix angel? 

They are to believe he is just as much a god as Jesus was, and to believe the Felix angel and his message is just as important as believing anything Jesus said. 

In fact, laying stress on predestination, INC and Ka Erdy must conclude that Felix angel is just as much the Word of John 1:1 as Jesus was. 

After all, is it possible that Jesus was in the mind of God as the Logos, the Word (John 1:1) as INC ministers interpret John 1:1, and Felix angel was not? Felix angel is greater than Jesus in INC. 

He got to do something Jesus did not get the favor of God to do and that is seal 144,000 in their foreheads and ordain them to be INC ministers. (Felix' invention)

Will it be possible to convert many INC members away from the falsehood of Felix angel's false doctrines? 

My personal opinion is that there will not be many conversions.  Why?  Because the Word of God tells us many will believe lies and be damned. 

Most members of the INC have the mentality of Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses and are there because they want to believe Felix angel's lies and they do not care to prove he was a false prophet and an immoral fornicator and rapist. 

These are those who love the ritual of religion and INC gives them an alternative to the Catholic Church.  It does not matter to them which deceptions they follow, they are not going to live holy with either choice. 

INC in its holiness is no better than the Catholic Church. There is no difference in the worldly mindset of members of INC then there is in the mindset of a Hindu or Buddhist. 

Once a person trods underfoot the Word of God and brings Christ to an open shame, they have crucified to themselves the Son of God afresh and there is no salvation for them. 
Why then is this page on the internet?  It is for the elect, the true Church of the Living God who want information on cults and religious disorders who have perverted the right ways of God.

With this information we will be able to keep our own family members, sons and daughters, from falling down before the chair of Felix angel and giving him the glory, the power, the honor, and the kingdom. 

Yes, it is written so that our Filipino family will not be led into the abyss where Felix angel awaits with the rich man and Judas for the day of judgment.

To my family and friends, do not bow to Felix angel for he is the false god of the INC and its members.  Worship Jesus Christ for he is God! (John 1:1).

Would God use a man who was a fornicator, a rapist, an adulterer, and use him to set up his "restored Church?"
Would God use a man who perverts the Word of God to make himself into an angel from heaven? Would God use a man whose interpretation of Scripture was primarily self-serving and for self-glory and exaltation? 

Would God use a man who claimed he was the messias and like Solomon he had the right to have unlimited sexual partners?

Would God use a man that the high courts of our nation rebuked for his deceiving of women to have relationships with him? Felix angel is in the same genre as Joseph Smith, both were philanderers and panty chasers. Both religious groups pervert the Word of God to make it testify for their own sexual predator leader.

May God save the Republic and grant many Philippine citizens the beauty of true Bible salvation. 

It is not in Felix angel or the INC, it is all in Jesus, the one who died on the Cross. Is Felix angel equal to Jesus? INC wishes, but Felix died and is dead, his body rotted and saw corruption. But the tomb of Jesus is empty. Jesus resurrected with His own body uncorrupted.

Felix angel just as much God as Jesus?

Felix did not raise himself from the dead, Jesus did! Skin worms ate the body of Felix angel, Jesus saw no corruption. Felix angel is still in his hole in the ground whereas Jesus resurrected and sits on his throne in heaven.

I asked one of the members of INC a fanatic supporter of Felix Manalo where could he be right now and he answered that Felix Manalo is in his grave waiting for Jesus Christ second coming. 


Well, if Felix Manalo is really an angel as every member of INC believes then how can he be an angel if he is still waiting in his grave? His body must have already rotten and turned to dust so he is not really an angel. Angels are spirits and surely don't need for the 2nd coming to be judged. Are we talking sense here? Yet every member of INC is blind on this reality. They believe Felix Manalo more than Jesus Christ. And why is that? 

Those who are clean will escape from INC bondage and those who seek Christ will never find him in an Iglesia Ni Cristo church. He is not there.  Never was in one and in every Iglesia Ni Cristo structure which is full of every foul spirit and sinful abomination.  


Is any of INC chapels 
truly holy place or holy ground? 


When you are inside any of the INC's chapelsjust you, all alone either daytime or nighttime,  what would you feel - emptiness? Scared? Serene? Peace and joy? Safe? What would you see - empty walls and chairs? Would you feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, the Angels or the devil? Would you feel emptiness with all the empty walls and chairs around? Will you feel safe, peaceful, feel holy and encourage you to pray? Would you kneel in silence? Would you feel walking out fast in order to leave the place? 
What would you feel really?  

***

But go inside a Catholic Church (daytime or night time and all alone), in silence you will feel serenity, peacefulness,  joy, feel very safe and never scared, but most of all you will feel the special presence of the Holy Spirit around you in your heart. You can imagine the Angels around you making you feel serene and peaceful. You can set anywhere inside and you will always feel so safe and secured. You would want to kneel and pray in the silence of your heart. And when you leave the church you will bring with you in your heart and mind the feeling of joy and peace. This I do whenever I feel sad and lonely or empty.

Acts 2:38 is the plan of grace-faith salvation, and remember the promise is to as many as the Lord (Jesus) our God shall call! But Peter said to them: Do penance, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins: and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.



QUESTION: Who underwent 4 centuries of purification?

ANSWER: The 12 Tribes of Israel who were scattered abroad.

NOTE: We all know that Jews are all over the world and that is why Jesus was saying to the Ends of the EarthFilipinos only started to go abroad in the 18th centuries but in very small numbers only. Only perverted minister will teach such a nonsense of making the other sheep as the Filipinos and the ends of the earth as the Far East composed of several countries and definitely not the Philippines.

NOTE: Again please review the Nature of Angels. They are spirits never in human flesh. This is a very simple logic that you all try to evade. It’s like turning your face to your left away from the truth on your right.

We Are Catholic


What does it mean to be Catholic in today's world? There are many lies and distortions placed upon the Church by the world and the evil spirits that prowl it. So we must proclaim the truth loudly!

We must be a people of joy, a people of faith, hope, and love. We must proclaim our faith not only in words but in who we are and what we do, each and every day.

We are Catholic, and that means taking up our crosses, walking in the path of Christ, and loving one another while conforming our hearts to God's.

PERSONAL MESSAGE 

Iglesia Ni Cristo members would say "show us the verses in the bible that says said He is God? Many times Jesus as God had been described here.


When I went back to Catholicism after years of listening (INC was one of them) and going to other denominations Jesus gave me a special message during one of my deep meditations (in original tagalog) which I would like to share with everyone.

“Anak, huwag kang lumingon sa paligid, sa akin ka lang tumingin, makakaraos ka rin sa taglay mong hirap at liwanag ko anak sa iyo’y darating. Ang bigay ko sa iyo ay pagibig, sana anak sa puso mo ay itanim, pagingatang lubos ang bigay kong punla upang anak sa puso mo ito’y lumago. Tunay na tunay kitang mahal, o anak tanggapin iyong mga pasanin, manatiling tapat sa iyong mga hanggarin dahil anak sa itaas doon kita dadalhin, upang anak ang langit ay iyong marating.”

Right after receiving the message.. I grabbed a pen and paper and wrote them without thinking nor trying to remember how He said it…it flowed effortlessly and done in just few seconds without stopping even half a second. I share this message to anyone who is ready to receive this. I did not dare to translate into English for fear that I may translate it wrongly.

Today - May 16, 2014 I am going to translate the message for everyone's understanding:

"Son, do not look around you, just look at me, you will be able to go through all your hardships and my light will come to thee. What I gave you is my love, I hope my child in your heart you cherish and plant, take good care of this seed I gave you so that in your heart it will grow. Truly truly I love you, oh my child accept all thy burdens, be true to all your good intentions for my child I shall take you up above, so that my child in heaven you shall be there."

THE PROBLEM WITH INC is that they use their mind to rationalize every word they read in the bible instead of using their hearts and try to meditate the real spiritual meaning of the scriptures they read. If only they search and read the Bible in all entirety, their is a good chance they will be able to connect with verses that are related in meaning. The danger is when you translate the Bible into the Filipino Language there is always a chance that translations will be accorded to the capacity of whoever is doing the translation of the Holy Scriptures. 

The most complete and perhaps void of errors is the Catholic Bible as the scriptures written where taken from the original books carefully studied and transcribed by many holy persons (not by few) not in months or years but centuries to make sure there were no errors during transcription. 

The Catholic Bible is the result of many minds (holy and mystics) who gathered together to put together all books done in centuries not days or months and transcribed them into one Bible for all Christians and Gentiles. When the protestant wants to translate the bible according to their needs that was the beginning of the advent of many religions to come and they come and go. 

Most non-Catholic bible were the translations of only few people and done in shorter times. Felix Manalo did his own thorough studies and comparison of different bibles in 3 days only though may have developed the rest of INC’s bible as the sect grew and progress of the years. 

Catholic Bible has been reviewed and re-reviewed by many theologians and bible scholars for one purpose only to ensure that there are no errors, additions and omissions. In other non-catholic bible there are additions and omissions of books and scriptures. This is what the Book of Revelation has been warning everyone not the mere addition or omission of some words or verses as other verses can cover them but they are the omission of books. Like Islam, they have omitted several books and added some to the original books of scriptures from the Genesis thru Revelation. 

When I read King James Bible several times, I decided to just keep and use the complete original and error free Catholic Bible that was originally translated into English not in Tagalog as I am having an issue on they way the were translated which not all can fully grasp (too wordy).

I maybe wrong in my initial studies of INC but this is only my opinion on how Felix Manalo developed the INC. If I do please correct my understanding. I have read some Pasugos but not INC’s bible as i don’t have a copy to compare with the Catholic Bible. With the Pasugo I am already having a hard time trying to get the real spiritual meanings of each statement. For there is none I can feel. But I do not intend to go deeper to study INC as I already found so many errors. 

While it is true the INC’s method of doing things exactly as what the scriptures say has brought meaning to others but to my opinion, there is a problem, the biggest problem when some original verses were omitted in justifying to convince new converts why they should be with INC

Woe to the converts who failed to research more from the real Bible before they decided to be baptized as INC. INC’s minister are well trained to do exactly just that. To follow Jesus is to deny oneself and to carry own cross…there will be many thorns along the way and life will not be that easy. The only way to serve God is serve with humility not even with slightest of vanity or pride.

It took me 8 years of searching for the real true Church of God. I was searching so far away that Jesus my God was within me in my heart. When I stopped using my mind that was the time I found what I was looking for and Jesus led me back to his one and only universal church – the Catholic Church which He himself founded. Jesus, being God equal to the Father and the Holy Spirit never and will never ever makes mistake as He already declared that even the gates of hell will not prevail. 

I was a prodigal who went astray away from my home and my God only to find my way back. Going home was the sweetest moment of my life and my family. And I promised to Jesus I would never ever leave again. Though inside the Home of my Father, I would still stumble and fall but I will continue to learn more of Him, love Him and serve Him with all my heart with all my soul and with all my might avoiding to offend nor hurt anybody. 

Whenever I listen to INC’s ministers I would always find some offensive things perhaps the speakers are too proud of their knowledge that they don’t realize when they are doing it for God or Christ, they should be always aware they are following the will of Him and His ways not their own least they offend God. When you seek to destroy others you always do it unto you. Whenever you shame others you shame yourself. Instead of throwing stones why not throw bread instead. Instead of slapping others face why not offer your own face to be slapped.

We have to remember, humans are the members of every religion and churches…as Jesus implied as long as we live we will continue to sin and commit errors, shortcomings and failures and will continue to offend God. Priests, bishops, cardinals and popes inside the Catholic Church are all humans and so pastors and brothers. INC cannot claim solely ever that only those inside the INC will be saved as this is an outrageous lie. And lie comes from the father of all lies – the Devil. Continuously attacking other religions especially the Catholics is ungodly, offensive to God and not the ways of Jesus who teaches only humility, love, understanding, forgiveness, charity, compassion, and all good virtues. 

I stopped listening and watching INC’s worships on TV years ago because they would never fail to end their worships without criticizing and judging others especially the Catholic Church whom Jesus founded as the universal church. So when you attack Jesus’ church you offend Him and when you offend Jesus, you offend the Father and the Holy Spirit. Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is abomination and unforgivable sin. 

Real church would refrain from vanity and pride when conducting sermons. It is best just to keep watch of your tongue and teachings within the congregation. If you delve on judging others you are already judging yourself. Ministers, say only good things not offensive things as God is watching all your tongues and deeds. Keep watch your heart of any slight vanity as vanity is the devil’s favorite sin and pride is the father of all sins.

Jer 50:6“My people have been a lost flock, their shepherds have caused them to go astray, and have made them wander in the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place.”

- Take heed of God’s warning….INC don’t be proud that you are already doing what the scriptures say but be ever watchful that you don’t offend God nor lead God’s people astray for you have already earned God’s judgement. I have seen INC’s ministers committing errors with their vanity.

Remember John 8:7 “When therefore they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them: He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

- INC If you truly believe you are sinless, then you can cast your stones to Catholics and other denominations for you have already earned God’s judgement. Unless you are sinless and have no errors then you can cast your stones as Jesus asked of everyone. Otherwise, get rid of your stones away from anyone and walk away just like the Jews during the time of Jesus. Judge and correct only yourself before even trying to judge and correcting others.

I shall continue to pray for you as we are all God’s children and Jesus came to save all of us.

In another time, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said: "Continue the good things you are doing for I have good plans for you." 

Perhaps doubters will say that was the devil who spoke. But why will the devil wants me to continue to the good things I am doing? Aren't devils against good deeds? The only things they want from us is to sin, to commit errors lots of them and to offend our God.

DEBATE: Which Is The One True Church
According To The Bible?

Part 1

With Jesse Romero, M.A.
On Fire Evangelization

Jesse Romero (Catholic-Christian apologist) vs Jose Ventilacion ("Iglesia ni Cristo" apologist)

Watch as a popular Catholic apologist/evangelist Jesse Romero defends the Catholic Church in a debate with Jose Ventilacion (a well known apologist, theologian and debater for "Iglesia ni Cristo").

The Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), which is Tagalog for "Church of Christ", claims to be the true church established by Christ, and Felix Manalo, its founder, proclaimed himself God's prophet. Regrettably, Iglesia ni Cristo i one of may groups today that claim to be the true Church, and Manalo is one of many individuals claiming to be God's prophet.

However, as John Henry Cardinal Newman said, "If ever there were safe truth, it is this.. And Protestantism has ever felt it so... To be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant" and as Scripture instructs, "He who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him." (Proverbs 18:17)

In this 2 videos (derived from DVDs), Jesse Romero clearly and effectively outlines why Iglesia ni Cristo does not stand the test of time and cannot be the Church that Jesus Christ founded.

Using copious amounts of sacred Scripture to prove his position in the debase, Jesse offers a verse-by-verse explanation of the Catholic Church's authrity as given from Jesus to St. Peter.

After you watch this debate, you will thank God that you are a Catholic (a member of the True Church founded by Jesus Christ)!

In this 2-Video presentation, you will learn:
- Why the "New Evangelization" requires that we learn the art of "explaining the Catholic faith intelligently, defending it charitably and sharing it effectively"
- Why the challenge to stand for the truth has never been greater
- How apologetics anchors us to the rock-solid truths of 2,000 years of Christianity
- Why the Christianity of history is not Protestantism
- Why the INC is just one of the many garden variety, anti-Catholic, fundamentalist denominations that cropped up in the 20th century
- And much, much, more!
