"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

The Truth About the Iglesia ni Cristo (Fourth Part)

Read the Third Part

All exerpts posted were taken directly from the booklet Ang Katotohanan Tungkol sa Iglesia Ni Cristo, a thorough PASUGO compilation by Julian Pinzon published by Divine Word Publication, Oroqueta Street in Manila. Please buy your copies at Chrirst the King Mission Seminary, E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue, Quezon City (near Quezon City Sports Club; in front of Maryhill School of Theology).

All entries were copied as they are. It was intentionally done for Filipino Catholics's proper information and in particular for Filipino members of the sect Iglesia ni Cristo's own discernment. I hope and pray that with this little effort of typing some from the booklet, our separated brethren may finally come home to the real Church Christ has built on the rock of St. Simon Peter:

ANG SALU-SALUNGATANG PAGSIPOT SA MUNDO NG IGLESIA KATOLIKA NA NASUSULAT SA MAGASING PASUGO

  1. PASUGO Pebrero 1959, p. 1: (sinulat ni Ben Santiago)"Mahigit nang isang libo at limangdaang taon ang Iglesia Katolika sa mundo. Maglilimangdaang taon naman ang mga Protestante. Ang Iglesia ni Cristo ay mag-aapatnapu't limang taon lamang mula noong 1914." (Ika-limang siglo ng Iglesia Katolika)
  2. PASUGO Mayo 1952, p. 5: (sinulat ni Ben Santiago)."Mula sa taong 527 hanggang 565 sa panahon ng Emperador Justinano naging ganap ang pagkatatag ng Iglesiang ito na sumipot sa Pulong ng Nicea." (Ika-anim na siglo)
  3. PASUGO Agosto 1962, p. 3: (sinulat ni Ben Santiago)"Sino ang nagtayo ng Iglesia Katolika Apostolika Romana? Ang Konsilyo Batikano! Kailan? Noong 1870." (Ika-labingsiyam na siglo)
  4. PASUGO Marso 1956, p. 25: (sinulat ni Teofilo Ramos) "Ang Iglesia Katolika'y pinabrika lamang ng mga Obispo noong 1870 sa Batikano."
  5. PASUGO Pebrero 1952, p. 9: (sinulat ni Joaquin Balmores)"Hindi mapapasinungalingan ninuman na talagang ang Iglesia Katolika ang lumitaw sa loob ng Emperyo Romano noong ika-apat na siglo."
PANSININ: Ang mga ito ang Ministrong inaralan at inatasang magpahayag ng pagkatatag ng Iglesia Katolika Apostolika Romana:

  • Si Emiliano Magtuto--PASUGO Nob. 1956, p. 18: -- 44 B.C.
  • Si Benjamin Santiago -- PASUGO Peb. 1959, p. 1: -- 400 A.D.
  • Si Benjamin Santiago -- PASUGO Ago. 1962, p. 3: -- 1870 A.D.
  • Si Teofilo C. Ramos -- PASUGO Mar. 1956, p. 25: -- 1870 A.D.
  • Si Joaquin Balmores -- PASUGO Peb. 1952, p. 9: -- 400 A.D.

Isa ang mga petsang salu-salungatan na napag-aralan ni G. Felix Manalo na pagkatatag ng Iglesia Katolika at inilathala naman ng mga nabanggit na Ministro niya.

Dahil dito lalong lumilitaw na hindi sa Dios at kay Cristo ang itinayong Iglesia ni Felix Manalo alinsunod pa rin sa nasusulat sa Magasing PASUGO Agosto 1951, p. 18 na ganito ang mababasa natin:

"Totoo rin na kung ang Iglesia ay iba-iba ang inaaral sa iba't ibang panahon ay tunay na Iglesia ni Cristo."

Tumpak at marahil sa mukha nila bumalandra ang sinasabi nilang ito:
