"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

Eraño Manalo Avenue (Formerly Commonwealth Avenue)

Politician lawmakers, not religious leaders who still believe in the mythical Iglesia ni Cristo "bloc vote" came up with a suggestion to rename the Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City to Eraño Manalo Avenue.

Is this politicking?!

Housebill 6785 proposes to rename one of the busiest streets in Quezon City to the Iglesia ni Cristo heir (son of the founder Felix Manalo) in recognition of his "spiritual contribution" to the Filipino people.

What kind of spiritual contribution these Congressmen and women are saying? This same Iglesia ni Cristo denied Christ and accused the Catholic Church and Protestants of being "sons of perdition."

Let's not forget these "Traditional Politicians (trapos)" lawmakers who are very much influenced under the INC mythical "bloc vote" spell. They are Reps. Candido P. Pancrudo, Jr. (Bukidnon), Diosdado “Dato" M. Arroyo (Camarines Sur), Pedro P. Romualdo (Camiguin), Yevgeny Vincente B. Emano (Misamis Oriental), Jose S. Aquino II (Agusan del Norte), Antonio F. Lagdameo, Jr. (Davao del Norte) at Rommel C. Amatong (Compostela Valley).
If there's any religious leader who truly united our people, it should be the late Cardinal Jaime Sin even without his being Archbishop. No one doubts about that!

Commonwealth Ave nais ipangalan kay 'Ka Erdy' Manalo ng INC

MANILA (
GMANews)– Nais ng ilang kongresista na ipangalan kay Eraño “Ka Edy" Manalo, ang pumanaw na punong tagapamahala ng Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC), ang Commonwealth Avenue sa Quezon City.

Sa isang pahayag mula sa Kamara de Representante nitong Sabado, inihayag ng mga kongresista na ang pagpapalit ng pangalan ng Commonwealth Avenue bilang Eraño G. Manalo Avenue ay pagkilala sa kanyang “spiritual contribution" sa bansa.

“House Bill 6785 sought to convey Ka Erdy’s idea of Filipino ingenuity by sculpturing a religion that originated in the Philippines, which has expanded around the world," nakasaad sa pahayag.

Sa ilalim ng pamamahala ni Manalo lumaganap ang kapatiran ng INC sa iba’t-ibang bahagi ng mundo. Tinatayang mayroong simbahan ang INC sa 60 bansa.

“Ka Erdy also piloted the spiritual and moral well being of the Filipino people," ayon sa mga kongresista.

Dapat din umanong kilalanin ang malaking kontribusyon ni Ka Erdy sa paghubog ng kultura ng mga Pilipino sa kanyang mga tagasunod sa pamamagitan ng kanyang mga pangaral sa pinapaniwalaang relihiyon.

“With Eraño G. Manalo’s religious leadership that transcended over political and social boundaries, Ka Erdy is worthy to be lined up with great Filipino leaders and other great Filipino achievers," idinagdag sa pahayag.

Sa ilalim ng panukala, inaatasan nito ang Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) na magpalabas ng kautusan at alituntunin upang ipatupad ang pagpapalit ng pangalan ng highway.

Ang Commonwealth Avenue ang itinuturing ng Metro Manila Development Authority na isa sa mga pangunahing lansangan sa Metro Manila at buong bansa na may pinakamaraming kaso ng aksidente.

Bagong tawaging Commonwealth Avenue, naunang pinangalanan ang highway bilang Don Mariano Marcos Avenue, na may habang 12.4 km simula sa Quezon Memorial Circle hanggang Quirino Highway sa Novaliches.

Kabilang sa mga may-akda sa panukala ay sina Reps. Candido P. Pancrudo, Jr. (Bukidnon), Diosdado “Dato" M. Arroyo (Camarines Sur), Pedro P. Romualdo (Camiguin), Yevgeny Vincente B. Emano (Misamis Oriental), Jose S. Aquino II (Agusan del Norte), Antonio F. Lagdameo, Jr. (Davao del Norte) at Rommel C. Amatong (Compostela Valley).

Pumanaw si Ka Erdy, 84-anyos, noong Agosto 31 sa kanyang tahanan dahil sa cardiopulmonary arrest. – GMANews.TV


If these lawmakers wanted to do that, let them do it in their cities, not in Quezon City. If they wish, they could name our kantos and esquinitas to him. In terms of number, the El Shaddai of Mike Velarde is more than tha affiliates of the Iglesia ni Cristo.

Stop playing politics and religion together. Keep our street names from any religious influence.

  2. Thanks for your reaction. It only proves that I've wrote something that stirred you up, although you said this post was stupid.

    Kung katangahan lang ito, bakit ka affected? (lol)

    Someone is more stupid to react to a "stupid" post such as this.

    God bless.

  3. If you think about it Theres no problem with renaming a major street after Erano Manalo. If you see, out cities are littered with Names of deceased bishops, priests, and cardinals. And only the renaming of a street after an INC minister Can bring up a stir or what they call a controversy? And only a stupid person would think that There are no streets named after priests.

  4. Yes, these Catholics contributed for the welbeing of the whgole country, not only CAtholics...

    What contribution did Felix and Erano did for the country? It's frustrating that only members of his the cult or their corporation did benefited from them.. but the rest of the Filipinos?

    N-O-T-H-I-N-G!

    Read my lips.

  5. Im laghing right now at how angry you are getting after this post. hehe

    now seriously, Let me see what did cardinal Rosales do for our country?
    i ask this because there is a street here in Cebu that is named after him.

    Why do you say that there were no contributions that Ka Erdy do for the rest of the country? is there anything else that catholic priests have done for a country that cannot be applied to this man?

    N-O-N-E

  6. You are comparing Eraño Manalo to Catholic priests?

    Bakit anak ba sila ng sugo? lol.

    Eraño Manalo was the son, heir to the throne of Felix Manalo whom you believed to be the Last Sugo, Angel, Shepherd while Catholic priests were not.

    So what did the Cardinal do for the rest of the Philippines? They safeguarded our Republic's Democracy which you almost ruined in the faked (bayarang) EDSA 3.

  7. Dear blog readers, if you noticed catholic defender did not answer my question.

    i asked if there is anything that catholic priests did that Ka erdy dint or our ministers in general.

    Can i ask you( now im asking you this not to prove something but just to teach me something) what is bayarang because i dont know.

    ReplyDelete
  8. You didn't like my answers but I answer right? So don't fret out.

    Bayarang is a two tagalog words conjugated bayaran+na = bayarang which in english would mean PAID.

    So what Manalo didn't do that priests have done? To love even those who don't love his Iglesia business.

  9. so your accusing us of faking edsa 3?
    How can you say such a thing? If it is true What about edsa 1? YOur cardinal sin told on the Radio Veritas urging the people to rally on the streets. Its just thesame as what you accuse us of supporting edsa 3

    Who said he did not love those people who hate (what you call business) the church?

    Primary and secondary schools 125,016Universities 1,046Hospitals 5,853Orphanages 8,695Homes for the elderly and handicapped 13,933
    Dispensaries, leprosaries,nurseries and other institutions 74,936

    with all that you call us a bussiness? Tsk. Tsk.

  10. Who believed that there existed an EDSA 3? There were poor folks paid to rally behind Erap and that the INC were behind.

    You compare EDSA1 and 2, you can see no one hitting street lights or vandalizing? It was in the faked EDSA 3 that our poor folks were used for self preservation and pride.

    Look, the Iglesia ni Cristo® is compared to the Catholic Church as an institution. Why compare it to a mere Orphanages and Universities?

    Are you implying that the Iglesia ni Cristo is just the size of one of our run orphanages? That's contrary to the wishes of your founder.. to be the state religion of the Philippines lol..

  11. Is it the job of a priest to teach science? Example of that is Mendel.
    Is it the job of priest to run schools for the monetary value of it? I don't think so.

    Yes, the inc does have schools but our teachers are not our ministers. we hire teachers. yes our ministers teach in BEM but it is for the propagation of the word.

    We do have a hospital but yet again , the ministers are not doctors or nurses.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Our priests are trained to be priests, teachers and doctors.

    Obviously you don't know. We have priests who were gifted with knowledge on medicine and science for glorifying the AUTHOR of all KNOWLEDGE.

    Some of our priests were doctors, nurses, teachers, lawyers, philosophers, before they were called to the priesthood.

    Yes, they preach yet they too share their knowledge which comes only from God.

    On the contrary, your ministers have no background in Philosophy, much more in Theology. You have none to match our priests in terms of knowledge.

  13. it's not nice to fight.
    And please, cite your source? The Church never, ever claimed Brother Erano as the "heir" of the Church.

    If you were really of the Christian faith, you would just keep things at peace. Not fight. No one likes fighting.

    If our Church was so fake, then God wouldn't have allowed it to grow so well.

    BTW, I noticed that you have a quote claiming "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."
    This article, ask yourself, is it really peaceful or peacemaking? Are your comments peaceful or peacemaking?
    In my humble opinion, they kinda of aren't. So. . . does that mean you are not a child of God?

    good day to you~ cheerio~ annyeong~^^

  14. Thanks Anonymous for the comments.

    First, let me correct your terminologies. The CHURCH is never be the Iglesia ni Cristo.

    If you consult wikipedia for correctness of the term, the Catholic Church rightfully is the "Church" you are referring to read here and your cult as the "church" see HERE.

    So please DO NOT confuse yourself and stop believing in a MYTH of the Manalos. The CHURCH never apostatized except for a few bunch of hypocrites who left the CHURCH and APOSTATIZED like your own "Last Sugo" Felix Manalo. He was a baptized Catholic, became a Protestant Minister of various denominations, been agnostic and atheist before he founded his own church, registered it in 1914.

    What else can we extract from its registration at the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission except that the registration says FELIX MANALO is the FOUNDER of the IGLESIA ni KRISTO (INK) later was changed to IGLESIA ni CRISTO (INC). As the FOUNDER, it follows that his founded organization belongs to him, and in his death, that organization which is called the Iglesia ni Cristo should automatically be referred to his next kin of generation.

    Like many multi-billion dollar companies, the Lopezes own ABS-CBN and in his death, the founder and owner of the Lopezes group of companies rightfully belongs to the clan of the founder.

    That's why common sense would dictate that when FELIX MANALO YSAGUN changed his name to FELIX YSAGUN MANALO, the INC administration knows where to tap the Manalos. Chismis lang ang sinasabi nilang may votation daw. When Felix died, his son ERAÑO took the office of being the EXECUTIVE MINISTER. When Eraño died, there is no need of speculating who'd be the next Executive Minister. 100% WE all knew it would be EDUARDO who would be taking the vacated position of his father. And I bet, 100% another MANALO will take the position of the Executive Minister when Eduardo dies.

    Now tell me, do I have to rely on Official INC document that says the Manalos AREN'T making MANA of the INC?

    Instead, I am basing my judgment on what's stipulated in your SEC registration, not your INC document, (if there are any) since NONE has been published so far to the PUBLIC, not even an official teaching or a website on that matter.

    Yes, blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the Children of God. I am fighting falsehood from the truth. And I vowed to exult the LORD JESUS and his CHURCH over an rapist angel Last Messenger kuno and his founded Iglesia.

    I am suppose to ask why you chose to be Anonymous but now I understand. Just like the rest of the INC bigots in the internet who sow hatred, lies, deception, stealing names and identities, with the desire to BRING DOWN THE CHURCH CHRIST FOUNDED, for the sake of RESBAKing, this is the anti dote.

    Oh, if your INC is fake why it's still striving? Coz Satan is still there, deceiving many through your cult!

  15. I tried to add my name, but it wouldn't work. seriously, i did try ^^

    -The Deputy Excecutive Minister is next to be Excecutive Minister.

    -If the Church of Christ never claimed to have "heir"'s of our Church, What right does anyone have to call the next Excecutive Minister the "heir"?

    -LOOOOL, really? You're citing from wikipedia? I don't even... lol ur funny^^

    -You claimed that the INC is an "organization which is called 'Iglesia ni Cristo"
    and then, you compared it to "multi-billion dollar companies".
    that doesnt even make sense TT^TT.

    -Now tell me, do you have any official documents claiming the INC is making MANA? [that means like inheitence right? lol]

    -"... blessed are the peacemakers. . . I am fighting. . ." quote from youu. nuff said.

    -as a founder, it means HE FOUNDED IT. It doesn't mean he owns it TT^TT

    -you are basing your judgement?? good grief... okay, you judge, have fun. see where that gets you.

    seriously, this is kinda weird. it seems like you spent so much time studying about the INC. wel, not really seeing as you hvnt learned much.

    getting so hyped up about a street sign, gawsh TT^TT

  16. Don't be silly INC member. Blogger has only few options for posting so please don't make lame excuses. No one is buying that line anymore.

    Well, I really have no problem with a corporation having kins inherit their companies but hey, yours is a "religion" kuno so that's the reason why I am AMUSED about.

    I really have no "offificial" document to support my claim but I am basing my conclusions from what we have seen. Two Manalos could be acceptable but THREEE MANALOS? Can we speculate more than having Felix Manalo, then his son Eraño Manalo, then to Eraño's son Eduardo... I can conclude that another Manalo will take the position of being the Executive Minister once Eduardo goes back to dust.

    Well, I'm citing wikipedia because it's a public encyclopedia where billion people believe on its accuracy. If not then you are always PROTEST but first you must CHALLENGE the credibility of your FACTS. You don't even have any WEBSITE to counter that, so stop discrediting WIKIPEDIA for that matter.

    Yes, the INC is a CORPORATION owned by the Manalos. Do you want to know? Read it here completely, then come back and tell us your assessment.

    You said:"-as a founder, it means HE FOUNDED IT. It doesn't mean he owns it TT^TT"

    Well, it's your PASUGO saying:


    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..."


    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 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."


    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."

    And according to your OFFICIAL MAGAZINE which is the TRUE CHURCH OF CHRIST?

    PASUGO Abril 1966, p. 46:
    Ang Iglesia Katolika na sa pasimula ay siyang Iglesia ni Cristo."

    Do you want to challenge your own OFFICIAL MAGAZINE?
