"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

AP News on Iglesia ni Cristo (Manalo)

Head of largest Philippine indigenous church dies
(News Source:
Asia Yahoo!News)

MANILA, Philippines – Erano Manalo, leader of the Philippines' largest indigenous religious sect, has died, his spokesman said Tuesday. He was 84.

Manalo took over Iglesia ni Cristo, or Church of Christ, after the death of his father and the church's founder, Felix Manalo, in 1963. The church is believed to have millions of members but does not disclose the figure.
AP news says, Felix Manalo founded the Iglesia ni Cristo. Certainly, AP sources for news are all based on FACTS.

Manalo died of a heart attack in his Manila home on Monday, the church's spokesman Bienvenido Santiago said.

The church was founded in 1914 when Felix Manalo resigned as minister of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church after questioning the observance of Sabbath on Saturdays. He experienced what he claimed to be a call similar to those of ancient prophets.

Again, AP news repeated the words "FOUNDED" since according to existing historical facts that the INC was actually FOUNDED BY FELIX MANALO IN 1914 (and not Christ).
Iglesia ni Cristo rejects the Christian doctrine of trinity and believes Christ is one of several prophets.

It is considered the largest indigenous church that originated from the Philippines and the largest independent church in Asia.
Where Filipino Foreign Workers are, the INC of Felix Manalo is present.

  2. Emphasis on the word FOUNDER and FOUNDED not on your teachings.

    Fact is, it was founded by Felix Manalo in 1914.

  3. ows??? it is only YOUR OPINION because you want to prove that the INC is not the true church. In our Doctrines, for your info, the INC is founded by Christ after the Catholic church was apostatized because of the FALSE TEACHERS who does the man made doctrines!

  5. Sino kaya ang may "man-made" teachings? Ang Katoliko o ang INC? Pansinin ang nakasulat sa pahina ng inyong PASUGO:

    PASUGO Hulyo 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."

    PASUGO Agosto-Setyembre 1964, p. 5
    Kailan napatala sa Pamahalaan o narehistro ang INK sa Pilipinas? Noong Hulyo 27, 1914. Tunay nga na sinasabi sa rehistro na si Kapatid na F. Manalo ang nagtatag ng INK."

    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."

    PASUGO Nobyembre 1940, p. 23:
    Iisa lamang ang tanging makapagtatayo ng Iglesiang magiging dapat sa Dios. Kung sino? -- Ang ating Panginoong Jesu-Cristo lamang! Sinumang tao-- maging marunong o mangmang-- ay walang karapatang magtayo..."
    Tanong: Ilan ba ang Iglesiang itinayo ni Cristo, at saang dako ng daigdig niya itinayo?

    PASUGO Mayo 1968, p. 7:
    Ang tunay na Iglesia ni Cristo ay iisa lamang, ito ang Iglesiang itinayo ni Cristo. Kung mayroon mang nagsisibangon ngayong mga Iglesia at sasabihing sila man ay INK rin ang mga ito ay hindi tunay kundi huwad lamang!"

    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 mg aral ng hindi sugo ng Dios, ay mula lamang sa kanyang sarili. (Juan 7: 16-18)

    PASUGO Mayo 1961, p. 4, ay gantio ang isang bahagi na nasusulat:
    At sino nga ba ang gumagawa ng mga leksiong itinuturo ng mga ministro, maging sa mga pagsamba, mga doktrina o mga Propaganda? Ang Kapatid na 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 bayan, ay si Kapatid na Felix Manalo lamang ang bumabalangkas at at nagtuturo sa kanila."

    Malinaw mula sa inyong opisyal na MAGAZINE na one-man man-made decision ang mga aral at turo ng INC at tanging si Felix Manalo ang bumalangkas at nagpatupad nito.
