"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

Iglesia ni Cristo®: Why in Filipino (Tagalog)?

Believed to be “Christ’s” restored Church, members of the Iglesia ni Cristo® boldly proclaim theirs is the real church (with a capital “R”) which Christ founded. If that's the case, then for almost a thousand years, while preaching faithfulness Jesus deliberately had “divorced” his bridegroom (Ephesians 5:25-27) -- the Church and finally re-establish it in 1914. It was only through assigning Felix Manalo as His “Last Messenger”—angel that Christ’s Church had to be restored. For more than 2,000 years, Christ’s followers didn’t know they have been deceived by Christ—and that the same Christ abandoned them when he must have kept his lost sheep for which he was to be their Savior. He didn't even left without any clue.

Christ, according to the Iglesia ni Cristo®’s teaching is an unfaithful Lord, who abandons his people when he has suppose to save them. He came for the sinners but he rejected them and left his own Church just to re-establish it new through Felix Manalo.
However, this claim remains to be ambiguous since there was no single verse to support this argument.

Felix Manalo preached a different Christ and all Iglesia (as they call themselves- never appearing in the Bible) blindly accept these deceptive teachings Manalo himself had formulated. (PASUGO May 1961, p.4 and PASUGO May 1963, p. 27)

Supposed Christ really founded the Iglesia ni Cristo. The question is: Why Jesus contented his Church to be named in Tagalog? Jesus wasn’t a Filipino. Nor he has spoken Tagalog.

Why “Christ” would named his new church to “Iglesia ni Cristo®?” Why limit his Church to Tagalog? Why not in English “Church of Christ”? Or German “Kirche von Christus”? Or French “Eglise du Christ”? Or Spanish “Iglesia de Cristo”? Or Portuguese “Igreja de Cristo”?

Why in Filipino anyway?

I guess the answer is very simple: It’s because Felix Manalo was a Filipino and while he was reading the Tagalog version of the Bible, took the name Iglesia ni Cristo from Romans 16:16. Just like any other registered trademarks such as McDonald's, Jollibee, Nike, Samsung,etc., the Iglesia ni Cristo is a TRADEMARK that shouldn’t be altered or changed. This is its registered name -- The Iglesia ni Cristo®®! This is because a…

“…mark cannot be registered if it constitutes the reproduction, in whole or in part, the imitation or the translation, liable to mislead the public of a well-known mark belonging to a third party. It would run against the interests of consumers if a mark resembling or imitating a well-known mark to the extent of confusion is permitted.” Trademark restrictions

Using other translations, such as the “Church of Christ” in English may bring severe charges to the Iglesia ni Cristo® in violation of the Intellectual Property Rights since the there were registered churches by that name.
Here’s your guide to the truth.

Jesus is a faithful God. He never abandons. He embraces our own sinfulness and pardons us of our guilt. That’s the reason why he came down from Heaven.

Jesus never taught divorce. In fact, he forbids it (Mark 10:11–12). Therefore he would never divorce the Church—his bridegroom

Christ cannot deny himself (2 Timothy 2:11-13). Therefore he cannot deny the Church—which is his body.

Just like in the Old Testament, God didn’t abandon Israel no matter how stubborn they were. He never desired to found another “Israel” replacing the stubborn Israelites. He remained faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9), keeping the promised he made to Abraham, Isaac, Moses and Jacob.

Just like the Father, Jesus will never abandon the Church he founded (Matthew 16:16-19), no matter how stubborn his people were. He never desired to found another “Church” replacing the Catholic Church which he had founded. He remained faithful, keeping the promised he made to Simon Peter and to his disciples in that respect.

Therefore, any sect, cult or church proclaiming itself as Christ’s true Church are fakes. I cannot agree more on what was said in the Iglesia ni Cristo’s Official Magazine called PASUGO (May 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." [There is only one true Church of Christ. This is the Church Christ founded. If there are emerging churches now which are claiming to be Churches of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo), they are not real churches but fakes].

So the next time you see the huge name “Iglesia ni Cristo” on every house of worship, paint a smile on your face and pass on good wishes to yourself because now you know why their cult is limited in the Tagalog version including its founder Felix Manalo which both cannot be translated to any other language. They will always be written in Filipino (Tagalog).

Note: The Catholic Church which is the true Church of Christ (according to INC Pasugo, April 1966, p. 46) can be translated in different languages without any fear of infringement and they mean one and the same including the name of Pope Benedict XVI.

English: Catholic Church (Pope Benedict XVI)
Spanish: Iglesia Catolica (El Papa Benedicto XVI)
Portuguese: Igreja Catolica (Papa Bento (XVI)
French: Église Catholique (Le pape Benoît (XVI)
Albanian: Kisha Katolike (Papa Benedikt (XVI)
Polish: Kościół Katolicki (Papież Benedykt (XVI)
Dutch: Katholieke Kerk (Paus Benedictus XVI)
German: Katholische Kirche ( Papst Benedikt XVI)

Now you know!

  1. tell me Catholic defender, where did you get this statement:

    "Christ, according to the Iglesia ni Cristo’s teaching is an unfaithful Lord, who abandons his people when he has suppose to save them."

    Is it in the teachings as you said? Show me a photo copy of our doctrine that days that.

    Tell me, in the USA is it not said on the face of the chapel Church Of Christ? Of in any other language.

    Next time you have to use the pasugo please type it, i don't think allot of people who frequent your blog have those issues. i don't even think you have them.

    Again, who said that Jesus left us? You just changed doctrine, thats it.

  2. Where can you find in the Bible that Jesus foretold the apostasy of his Church?

    NONE!

    Felix Manalo lied. Christ's Church remained. Although there were stubborn members of his Church but he NEVER abandoned his Church.

    Between Felix Manalo and Jesus, the former is the liar and you believed.

    Correction please, what is written in your cult houses in the USA is Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo). You never use the phrase Church of Christ ALONE coz you're not original.

    Who said Jesus left us? YOU Iglesia ni Cristo! Jesus left and abandoned his Church only to re-establish it through Felix Manalo...

    What a lie!

  3. I have noticed the defender is good in translation. But no matter how proud he is in translating the name of his church in different languages, the fact remains that the name of his church (in any translation for that matter) cannot be read in any translation of the Holy Bible. So unbiblical. tsk, tsk...

  4. Nor does the Spanish translation of Iglesia de Cristo refers to the Iglesia ni Cristo® in the Philippines.

    No advantage at all.

    The truth is, the Catholic Church which traces its origin from the Fist Century has existed for more than 2,000 years now.

    The truth is, the Catholic Church came first before the Bible.

    The truth is, there is no Bible without the Catholic Church.

    Such as there is no Constitution without a nation.

    Try a better argument next time mr. cursedbat...

  5. tell me catholic defender, where in the bible can you fund the name of the churhc which is the Holy Roman Catholic Apostolic Church.where in the bible can you find that? Why is it not in the bible if you compiled the bible? It was the early Christians whho compiled the bible. That is why we can find the name of the church that will be saved in the last days. In acts 20:28 lamsa translation 'Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of Christ, which he bought with his own blood."

    We use the lamsa because it is what is written in the original writings. Read Me has posted that on his blog.

  6. Mr. Plaridel, you're contradicting youself.

    According to your PASUGO April 1966, p.46, your cult acknowledges that the Catholic Church is the real CHURCH OF CHRIST founded by Christ in Jerusalem.

    Therefore, the "Early Christians" you're referring to are CATHOLICS.

    True, it was the first Christians, who happened to be CATHOLICS (not Iglesia) compiled the Bible.

    The word CATHOLIC dates back from the first century while the word Iglesia comes in a later date in 1914. The word ROMAN which is connected to our Church is not officially our name. It was the Protestants who called us Roman so as to emphasized our devotion to the Pope such as the word popish, romanists etc came out just to bash Catholics.

    You seem to be so ignorant with your history, don't you?

    Lamsa Translation has been doubted by most Bible scholars. Lamsa's affiliation to the Nestorian sect which was long been declared as schismatic sect limits his credibility as a scholar. You love to quote this particulr verse because Lamsa alone translate Church of God (original) to Church of Christ (faked one).

    You have believed in a lie of Felix so its not a big surprise for us if you love to re-echo their own confusion.

    So you are asking me to read readme's blog. In whose authority is he representing the Iglesia ni Cristo?

    unless readme admits he is Conrad J. Obligacion, or a minister of the Iglesia, then maybe I can consider his blog legitimate and worthy of believing..

  7. You do know that Iglesia means Church right? Tell me catholic defender where in the whole bible can you read the words Holy Roman Catholic Apostolic Church? Word for word Cover to cover where? Which verse. I think your going to reach again to the story of you giving the verses in the bible so don't do that please.

    The word CATHOLIC dates back from the first century while the word Iglesia comes in a later date in 1914
    -catholicdefender2000-

    Are you that ignorant? tell me where does the word iglesia come from. It comes from the word church in Greek ekklēsiai. So which one is older?

    right back at you ^___^

  8. Again your double standard two faceted standard is in action.

    So you know the word Iglesia is from the Greek word Ekklesia.

    Did you also know that the word Catholic is from the Greek word KatHolos? Which did come first the Church or the Bible?

    Let me clear your ignorance here. The Catholic Church came first before the Bible. So without the Catholic Church there is no Bible.

    So now you are asking me where in the Bible it is written word by word, verse by verse about the Holy, Catholic Apostolic Church?

    You are becoming funnier.

    The word do not exist like what you have. The word One, Holy Catholic Apostolic Church is not REGISTERED TRADEMARK just as the IGLESIA NI CRISTO is a REGISTERED TRADEMARK like a commodity.

    So again, using your two faceted standards, where can we find word by word, verse by verse the words Iglesia ni Cristo?

    Lastly, the Church is:

    One, for it has one God, one Lord, one Baptism, one Faith. Though we may be speaking different language but our teachings is ONE.

    HOLY, because our founder, Jesus Christ is HOLY. And because of her Holy founder, we have saints who lived a holy lives. The Iglesia ni Cristo haven't produced any like Mother Teresa or St. Francis or St. Damien etc.. your founder was even accused and was found guilty of having lapses in morality. He lived an IMMORAL LIFE.

    CATHOLIC, its because it is UNIVERSAL. Where Christ is, there the Universal (Catholic) Church is. Your cult is present only where there are Filipino migrant workers or immigrants. You are simply local sect, a Filipino church, no more than that. Proudly Philppine made.

    APOSTOLIC, its because only the Catholic Church traces its history back to the times of the Apostles. Yours hardly reaches a hundred years.

    The word ROMAN is not in our official name. It's a name given by the Church of England since the Pope is in Rome and they had serious problems with the Popes in Rome. This is actually intended to humiliate Catholics.

    Today, when we say Roman Catholic, we simply mean Catholics in the Latin Rite. That's because we have numerous other Catholic Rites, more than 21 including various Eastern Rites found in the Middle East and Orthodox Church who are united with the Pope.

    The latest rite that is still on the process for approval is the Anglicanorum whicm is exclusively used by Anglicans who converted to CAtholicsm however CAtholics they are permitted to retain their Anglican Tradition.

    Now, before you lecture me of my Church, why not research first and admit that the word Iglesia ni Cristo is NOT EVEN IN THE BIBLE ITSELF.

    Word by word? FELIX YSAGUN MANALO wasnt even spelled out in the Bible!

  9. i asked you to give me a verse that says that. don't explain here, just tell me a verse I'l look it up and if its not there you aren't the true church. simple.

    If the catholic church is not registered anywhere, who builds it? the individual priests or the pope! The catholic church is the worlds biggest business!!! ^__^

  10. I don't have the burden to prove my religion to you. All historical facts can lead you back to the Catholic Church. Even before the Bible was finally completed, the Catholic Church was there.

    The Church is ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC, APOSTOLIC... find them in the Bible.

    So can i ask you, nasa Biblia ba ang mga saligant "Iglesia ni Cristo"?

    Pakitukoy nga po. Huwag lamang po ang Lamsa Translation.

  15. can we speak English again?

    Who said that the Church Of Christ or Iglesia ni Cristo is a registered trademark. Thats just your assumption. Show me evidence that says the INC is a Corporation Sole or a Registered Trademark. If its true we can file against you for TM infringement for using our mane without permission.

    So who owns the catholic church? Under what country is it registered? THe churches must be registered to a name and that name is the name of the individual priests.

  16. Your records in the Securities and Exchange Commission says that Felix Manalo registered a Corporation Sole under the title "Iglesia ni Kristo" which was changed later on to "Iglesia ni Cristo" and that founder and signatory of this Registered Trademark was Felix Y. Manalo on July 27, 1914.

    Technically, what you are celebrating on July 27 is your Registration Anniversary. Before that date, Felix Manalo already preached his own Gospel to poorly catechized CAtholics like him.

    Thanks heaven, his parents were devout Catholics that they were never "saved" according to the false teaching of the Iglesia ni Cristo de Manalo.

    Why you asked me of a photo copy of a doctrine you have when YOU ACTUALLY HID THEM INSIDE YOUR CENTRAL.

    What we get are portion of those hidden lies published in your Pasugo.

    Your Pasugo articles whether they're old or new are very important. They're printed and they will be used forever against you. That's because Pasugo is your official magazine.

    Again when Jesus left, he never left his own Church. He promised that he will stay until the ends of times, and that neither the gates of hell, or the power of Manalo's lies can prevail against the true and Universal Church of Christ.

    In truth, when Christ left, he warned us of the coming of FALSE PROPHETS who will SOW LIES and that's exactly what's written in the Bible fulfilled in Felix Manalo and the Iglesia ni Manalo for Christ has nothing to do with that Registered Trademark called Iglesia ni Cristo.

    CATHOLID DEFENDER SAID:
    I will repeat, your SEC Registratio says so. Just as other Registered Trademarks, the name Iglesia ni Cristo is reserved to that Corporation Sole registered by Felix Y. Manalo on July 27, 1914.

    The Catholic Church of Christ enjoys freedom from infringement. Because all courts in the world recognizes the historicity of the Catholic Church and that it's called the Church of Christ, Iglesia ni Cristo, Iglesia de Cristo or any other language.

    The original Church of Christ is not confined with any local language, or any Registration. Long before the foundation of great civilization today, the Catholic Church has been there.

    All existing historical facts point to the Catholic Church as the one of the oldest institutions in the World. It's own history predates every Protestant churches today, not even 1914 can match it.

    It's history is an integration of the History of Christianity as a whole. In fact, today it has been its 2,010 years (June 2010 years) of the existence of the Catholic Church... THOSE CALENDARS HANGING in your CENTRAL TEMPLE is the Gregorian Calendar, bearing the year the Catholic Church has existed...

    ILANG TAON NA RAW KAMI sabi ng Kalendaryo sa Central niyo? Two Thousand and Ten Years na po ang Universal Church of Christ or the Catholic Church of Christ o kaya'y ang PANGKALAHATANG IGLESIA NI CRISTO.

    wala na tayong magagawa diyan, FACT yan eh. You cannot change it, nor we can change history itself.
