"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

Felix Manalo was compared to Moses and Circulated Lies he was never been ordained!

The ORDINATION of FELIX MANALO by Protestants pastors he considered “APOSTATES” is undeniably shameful episode in the life of Felix Manalo, founder of the Iglesia ni Cristo cult in the Philippines. Kept hidden for many years, in today’s digital world, this topic was brought out which caused many members unable to answer their critics when being questioned about Felix Manalo’s reprehensible ordination (read HERE and HERE).

Believed to be caused by the INC Central office’s silence on the issue, nasty comments became rampant in forums, blogs or in social networks. There were those who were very kind enough to invite anyone of its critics to see one of their paid ministers for an answer.

Among the very detailed and pressing revealed truth exposing this disgraceful ordination of Felix Manalo is found in (see EMILY JORDAN: The Secret Behind Felix Manalo's Ordination), carefully researched by a member the Ang Dating Daan (ADD), one of INC’s fiercest critics, founded by Eliseo Soriano who is now hiding from an arrest warrant.

From that BLOG, Ms. Emily Jordan supported her claims by providing official memos, letters, excerpts from their official magazine Pasugo and old news clippings which caused severe damage for their “Last Sugo”. A silence for an answer is not anymore its best option.

In an attempt to appease their critics, an die-hard INC member posted a supposedly “official” pronouncement from the INC, not explaining but denying there was no ordination ever happen just as the great prophet Moses needed no one to ordain him.

Taken from an INC blogger at http://readmeinc.blogspot.com/2011/02/who-ordained-bro-felix-manalo.html, this man who can’t reveal his identity in an utmost secrecy rejoiced upon stumbling on that article. The letter reads:


Straight from the pasugo, here it is: [meaning it’s OFFICIAL!]

Ordination is the investiture of ministerial or sacerdotal function through the laying on of hands. The first ordination mentioned in the bible was when Moses laid his hands on Joshua to be his successor.

Moses, however, had no need of anyone to ordain him because his commissioning was mandated by God himself—this is also why Bro. Felix Manalo had no need to be ordained. 
No man has the right to ordain another unless he is sent by God to preach his words Rom.10:15). Bro. Felix Manalo was directly appointed by God through the prophecies recorded in the bible fulfilled in him.

Through prophecy, God commissioned his chosen servant from the “ends of the earth” refers to the period of when Judgment day is near signified by the outbreak of the First World War on July 27,1914. (Mt. 24:3,33,6-8). God chose Bro. Felix Manalo to proclaim his righteousness which is the gospel of salvation (Rom. 1:16-17). Concomitant with this right to preach was the authority for him to ordain would-be ministers.

From Pasugo September 1999
Since that article denies the fact that Felix Manalo received his “ministerial” ordination from Protestant pastors and ministers he consider “APOSTATES”, let us therefore find out why Felix Manalo has the least right to be compared to Moses. That’s heavy stuffs to digest.

In fact, comparing Moses to Felix Manalo is not even fair. The prophet Moses is obviously a HEAVY-WEIGHT VIP in the Bible while Felix Manalo is nothing but a dreamer in the middle of the day.

Moses was directly called by God “Moses! Moses!”Never was called by God—not even indirectly.
Moses talked with God like a man talking to a friend "face to face"Felix Manalo, only wished he had!
Moses was appointed by God to be his people's leader witnessed by huge throng of people.Felix Manalo appointed himself and proclaimed himself angel and “Last Messenger only 6 years after he founded his iglesia; him alone can testify.
Moses's name is clearly spelled out in the Bible numerous times.Not once the name of Felix Manalo was mentioned elsewhere in the Bible.
God worked miracles through Moses as a sign that he was CALLED by God for a mission.No miracle was recorded performed by Felix Manalo, a sign that God detested him!
Moses interceded between God and the Chosen People.Felix Manalo was considered not an intercessor but an “Angel—Last Messenger” making himself greater than a prophet.
Moses received the 10 Commandments for his people.Felix Manalo received mandate to confuse people by his false gospel and a lying Christ doctrines.
Moses is revered by three Great Religions-- Judaism, Christianity, IslamNone except INC members and Philippine politicians revered him

Biblically speaking, Moses’s enjoyed a prominent esteem among great prophets of old that even during His Transfiguration, Jesus was found conversing with Moses and Elijah. Did Felix enjoy that prophetic distinction too? Did Manalo converse with the Lord? Of course not!

But to prove to you once again that their official response to Felix Manalo’s ordination confuses more than enlightening. In fact, in December of 1918, INK Circular Letter dated December 1918, strongly suggest an event where Felix Manalo (before he proclaimed himself their “Last Sugo” and “Angel”) invited agents from apostate churches to lay hands on him—thus he’s ordained. And he allowed himself to be laid-hands by APOSTATE PASTORS? Was he not the “Last Sugo” that he must have been informed by “god” about these pastors as apostates?

In fact that ordination only suggests that he wasn’t even considering himself as the “Last Sugo” for allowing himself to be ordained by pastors he considers apostates.

So, how could he confer “ordination” to his successors if his own ordination was coming from “APOSTATES”? If INC considers Felix’ own ordination genuine, it only follows that their ministerial ordination is APOSTASY and that their ministers too are APOSTATES themselves. And according to their official magazine, apostates are doomed to be burned in hell for eternity.

"Kaya sa wakas ng lathalang ito, dapat na nating itakwil ang mga paring katoliko at mga pastorprotestante, sapagka't sila'y mga ministro ni Satanas. Dapat din nating itakwil ang Iglesia Katolika at ang iba't ibang iglesia protestante, sapagka't sila'y hindi sa Dios, kundi sila'y kay Satans o sa demonyo. Ang pagtatakwil ninyo sa kanla at sa kanilang mga maling aral ay pagsunod ninyo sa Dios; kay Cristo at sa mga Apostol."

And who were these “apostates” who conferered “ordination” to their “Last Sugo”? From their invitation letter, they were named as follows:

Bishop Alejandro Reyes (Iglesia Evangelica Metodista en las Islas Filipinas or IEMELIF)
Bishop Victoriano Mariano (Iglesia Evangelica Metodista en las Islas Fililpinas or IEMELIF)
Rev. Guillermo Zarco (Presbyterian pastor)
Nicolas Fajardo (Unknown)
Pastor Emiliano Quijano (Christian and Missionary Alliance) who officiated Felix Manalo and Honorata de Guzman's marriage
Roque Bautista (Methodist)

And before anyone believed that there were Catholic pastors who agreed to his apostate “ordination” the list proves that assertions otherwise.

Therefore, we have proven three things:

  1. That FELIX MANALO was ordained so he cannot be compared to the prophet Moses! 
  2. That FELIX MANALO was ordained by pastors he considered “apostates” therefore his ministerial ordination and his successors inherited “apostasy”. 
  3. So who is the apostate church now? It’s not the Catholic Church but it’s the Iglesia ni Cristo for having a “Last Sugo” ordained by apostates thereby having apostate ministers down to the last minister they will be ordaining in the future.

That may lead us to final conclusion that still the Catholic Church is the only Church Christ built as stated by their own official magazine called Pasugo:

PASUGO Setyembre 1940, p. 1:
“Dapat malaman ng lahat, ayon sa Bagong Tipan, ang tunay na INK ay si Cristo ang nagtatag nito."
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 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 1954, p. 9:
“Alin ang tunay na Iglesia? Ang Iglesiang itinayo ni Cristo sa Jerusalem."
PASUGO Abril 1966, p. 46:
“Ang Iglesia Katolika na sa pasimula ay siyang Iglesia ni Cristo."
