"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

Eduardo Manalo, Executive Minister of the Iglesia ni Cristo Supports RH Bill if...

“We do not support the natural family planning method and all its variants… These methods are not only unnatural and ineffective but they also are immoral since they contradict the commandment that God has given to married couples…” -Eduardo V. Manalo, Executive Minister, grandson of Felix Manalo, founder of the "Iglesia ni Cristo" (1914).

Remember the Iglesia ni Cristo Manalo is an ANTI-CATHOLIC so we don't expect them to be on our side EVER. What does the CHURCH teachings on Artificial Contraceptives? Here are good articles that explains our Catholic opposition-- What does the Church Teach about Birth Control?, History on the Ban of Birth Control in the Catholic Church and the official Catechism of the Catholic Church #2370

Iglesia ni Cristo Manalo (INC) Executive Minister EDUARO V. MANALO issued an official statement of the Iglesia ni Cristo on RH Bill, received at the House of Representatives in October 14, 2010. The link is here at INC Supports RH Bill but below is the text: See how their highest authority's shifting moral stand against what was believed by early Christians almost 2,000 years before their Iglesia was founded by his "Lolo Felix".

OFFICE OF THE EXECUTIVE MINISTER
IGLESIA NI CRISTO

12 October 2010

HON. ROGELIO J. ESPINA, M.D.
Chairman
Committee on Population and Family Relations
House of Representatives
Republic of the Philippines

Dear Congressman Espina,

We would like to thank the Committee on Population and Family Relations for requesting our position concerning the Bills of Reproductive Health. We are all well aware of the dire situation of our country caused by overpopulation. Many of society’s worsening ills—from homeless families starving in miserable conditions and children not in school but instead begging day and night in nearly every major street to the rapidly spreading problems with drug abuse and rising crime rates—can be traced to families growing so large that an increasing number of parents cannot provide the most basic human needs to their families.

We consider it commendable that our lawmakers care enough for our fellow Filipinos that they are doing what they can do to alleviate the hardships so many of our countrymen are facing. IN what they propose, they can bring about not only an economic good for our countrymen but also a moral one. We are ready to support the Bills on Reproductive Health as long as there would be no immoral elements in them.

What are the moral aspects of the proposed bills that we support? We believe that it is moral imperative for parents to watch over all their children and provide them with food, shelter, and clothing, as well as proper education and religious and moral training. Hence, parents todayhave (sic) a moral obligation to plan the number of their children and keep it under control. The Bible states that a parent who does not provide for the needs of his own household is worse than an unbeliever (I Tim. 5:8). Since modern methods of contraception—by preventing married couples from having any unplanned pregnancies—assist in supporting this Christian principle, we support their use as long as these methods are empirically not abortifacient. Abortion and the use of abortifacients involve the taking of life, which God explicitly forbids (Exod. 20:13).

We do not support the natural family planning method and all its variants. These so-called birth control methods depend upon abstinence on the part of the married couple when the woman is fertile but allows marital relations only when she is not. These methods are not only unnatural and ineffective but they also are immoral, since they contradict the commandment that God has given to married couples. The Bible instructs married couples not to deprive one another of intimate marital relations for long, extended periods of time; further, any abstinence at all for a married couple is supposed to be with the mutual consent of husband and wife and not for the purpose of preventing pregnancies (I Cor. 7:3-5).

We appreciate the Committee’s gesture of soliciting our stand on this timely yet controversial issue.

Very truly yours,

(sgd) EDUARDO V. MANALO
Executive Minister

  2. While your own FOUNDER, ANGEL and LAST MESSENGER raped ROSITA TRILLANES.

    Felix Manalo vs. Rosita trilalne, May Rape ba o Wala.

    Leslie Wolfe against Felix Manalo

    Remember, Leslie Wolfe was rumored to have graced Felix Manalo's ordination.

    That's because your Founder and Sugo was found GUILTY of IMMORALITY... un hombre de baja moral (a man of low morals)

    Forget about the Popes. They never proclaimed themselves as "Last Messengers" but simply servants of the Lord.

    Huwag mong "lang langin" ang nasa internet sapagkat mabuti pa 'yan kaysa sa wala.

    To this date WALA man lang OFFICIAL SITE ang INC ni Manalo. Ang mga nakalagay sa internet ay mga kopya hango sa ORIHINAL na nalathala. Kaya kung ano man ang nakasulat tungkol sa inyong PEKENG SUGO ay totoong totoo at sinang-ayunan ito ng Korte...

    Anong tawag sa inyong pekeng anghel? "A man of low morale"...

    Ang Santo Papa namin ay tinatawag sa title na "Holy Father". Kaya siguro ngalngal ka sa reklamo kasi ang tawag sa inyong pekeng anghel ay "A man of low morale."

    At saka siguro akala mo ang pagiging "Holy Father" ng aming Santo Papa ay para sa iyo ay robbing of God's title. Tutal ever since MAKITID na talaga ang pang-unawa ng mga Manalistas.

    Ang kabanalan ng aming Santo Papa ay HINDI nagmumula sa kanyang sarili kundi sa DIOS na siyang puno ng KABANALAN. Siya, bilang KAHALILI ni Apostol San Pedro ay INAASAHANG mabuhay ng may KABANALAN.

    Ang bawat namumuno sa buong mundo ay may KATAWAGAN. Ang Santo Papa ay ganon ang KATAWAGAN sapagkat nararapat lang na siya'y "BANAL" at spiritual father "AMA" ng mga Kristiano sa lupa.

    Ang mga pangulo ay tinatawag sa "YOUR EXCELLENCY" bagamat sila'y puno rin ng kabuktutan. Ang mga hari at reyna ay tinatawag na "YOUR HIGHNESS" na pwedeng katawagan din ng Dios.

    Ang Santo Papa lang ang may katawagan na ganon... may angal pa kayo?

    Imposible namang tawaging "Your holiness" si Felix eh sinabi nga ng korte "A man of low morale".. Taong MABABA ANG MORAL" di ba kahiya hiya ito...

    tutal nasabi mo na rin ang "blasphemous", heto ang blasphemous.

    Galing mismo sa inyong opisyal na PASUGO:

    PASUGO Hulyo 1965, p. 12:
    “Parehong-pareho ang espiritu ni Cristo sa diwa ni Kapatid na Felix Manalo sa pamamaraan ng pagdadala ng tungkuling tinanggap sa Dios."


    PASUGO Mayo 1964, p. 1 ay ganito:
    “Inihandog ng Dios ang kanyang sarili sa kanyang huling sugo upang dumiyos sa kanya. Samakatuwid, ang tanging may Dios na huling araw na ito'y ang huling sugo -- si Kapatid na Felix Manalo."


    Hindi ba kayo kinikilabutan?

    "INIHANDOG" daw ng Dios ang kanyang sarili KAY FELIX MANALO para "DUMIOS" sa kanya!!!!

    Kaawaan ng Dios ang inyong mga kaluluwa!!!!

  5. I noticed that INC has no presence in Makati Business District as of yet. I wonder why. If the church is interested, there is an 8 storey building with a big worship hall sitting on a lot with an area close to 2,000 sq. Meters at Valero St. In Salcedo Village Makati. If you are interested, kindly call me up at 0928-5010499 or email me at sfs1director@gmail.com

    Thanks,

    Gerard Estella

  6. "Spiritual Father" pala nila ang Papa.

    "And DON'T address anyone here on earth as 'Father,' for ONLY GOD in heaven is your SPIRITUAL FATHER."

    Matthew 23:9 NLT

  7. I quote, "Ang Santo Papa... siya'y "BANAL" at spiritual father "AMA" ng mga Kristiano sa lupa."

    It is clear, you believe that the Pope is a SPIRITUAL FATHER.

    Try reading Matthew 23:9

    "And DON'T ADDRESS ANYONE here on earth as 'Father,' for ONLY GOD in heaven is your SPIRITUAL FATHER." (NLT)
