"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

Behold, Felix Manalo, the Angel...

Hardliner INC Ministers and its blind followers are quick to defend Felix Manalo’s angelic status while they can easily dishonor and ignore the more obvious Biblical facts about Jesus' Dinivity revealed by prophets of old.

Carefully choosing chopped verses of the Bible, their endless argument-- John 8:40; I Tim. 2:5; Is. 53:3; Ps. 80:17; Col. 3:1; Jn. 10:36 [check the verses in the Holy Bible].

Come to think of how they cheat people. Choosing only verses that suits their argument and connects it to other verses is very unprofessional practice for its ignorant ministers. They’re liars and cheaters and deceivers.

"By its fruit, you will know them," says Christ Jesus (Mat. 7:20). But I say, but its founder you can judge them.

And the “Last Messenger” they so revere deified to an angelic state was just the best liar and deceiver. Using Biblical standards for a divinely envoy would deride their assertions: Zoom this .jpeg file but for now, here’s what’s in the letter:

Mr. Salvador Laspinas,
1535 Felix Huertas, Int. C.,

Dear Bro. Laspinas:

I have your letter of Oct. 7th. You know I am sick. I am not able to give you all the information about Felix Manalo that you desire. He was a student in our mission and I was one of his teachers. We had him employed as an evangelist, paying him a salary. He was minister for the church at Singalong for some time. His wife accused him of cruelty and of adultery. She came to my house and showed the wounds which Felix had made by blows on her back. I called the doctor who is now in Manila to examine her wounds. The church at Singalong had an investigation of Felix. The wife of Felix came andmade complaints, but Felix did not come. The church at Singalong voted that Felix was guilty of the charges of his wife. As a consequence we took away the salary that we were giving to Felix. Then Felix left us.

I do not have further personal knowledge of the life of Felix. There was, however, a Teresa who studied with us. It was proven in court that Felix was the father of her child.

Bro. Baronia has much typewritten information about Felix Manalo and especially about the Teresa case, which he says he will be glad to furnish to any one desiring the information.

I hope you will be able to continue your work and that you will be very successful. I am

Cordially your,

Leslie Wolfe

You must have heard ROSITA TRILLANES. She's a member of the newly founded Iglesia ni Cristo during its early years but later accused Felix of immorality. ExamineIglesiniCristo has its archive copy.

From these extracted facts, for me, the only reason why an INC sticks its nose to Manalo's church is pride and unwillingness to submit himself to Christ's founded church' Authority, although overwhelmingly, historical facts alone can prove that the church which Christ founded is still alive and vibrant. Wikipedia says about the Catholic Church

"[T]he Catholic Church,[note 1] is the world's largest Christian Church representing over half of all Christians and one-sixth of the world's population.[6][7] It comprises 2,782 dioceses grouped into 23 particular rites—the Latin Rite and 22 smaller Eastern rites. The pope, currently Benedict XVI, is the Church's highest earthly authority in matters of faith, morality and Church governance.[8] The community is made up of an ordained ministry and the laity; members of either group may belong to organized religious communities[...]

"With a history spanning almost two thousand years, the Church is one of the world's oldest institutions,[20] and has played a prominent role in the history of Western civilization since at least the 4th century[...]

"The Catholic Church traces its foundation to Jesus and the twelve Apostles.[25] It sees the bishops of the Church as the successors of the apostles and the pope in particular as the successor of Peter, the leader of the apostles[...],
The final proof is its own admission printed in their PASUGO that "the Catholic Church is the true Church of Christ...

    BlockquoteAng 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."

    I don't need to prove it further...
