"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

The First Church will Apostatize: Where was it prophesied in the Bible?

Please examine that there is a prophecy that the first Church of Christ will be Apostatized,

Good Lord! I am surprised a man coming from the land of the “civilization” (NY, USA- unless he’s just there in New York, Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines) is exposing his tremendous ignorance about biblical prophesies and history.

Sorry for our “inability” to “examine” that “prophesy” in the Bible.

Please be so kind to SHOW US that SINGLE VERSE from the BIBLE which says the CHURCH will TOTALLY APOSTATIZE. Then I can concede!

Just ONE SINGLE VERSE is enough then I will completely renounce my Catholic belief and join Manalo’s Iglesia ni Cristo.

In fact your own OFFICIAL PASUGO confirmed that the FIRST CHURCH never apostatized.

PASUGO Mayo 1968, p. 5:
"Ano ang katangian ng maging Tupa ni Cristo? Sa Juan 10:28 ay ganito ang sabi: 'At sila'y binigyan ko ng walang hanggang buhay, at kailanma'y hindi sila malilipol, at hindi aagawin ng sinuman sa aking kamay'. Isang dakilang kapalaran ang maging Tupa o Tauhan ni Cristo sapagkat sila'y binibigyan niya ng walang hanggang buhay at hindi sila malilipol kailan man."

Says Julian Pinzon in his mini-booklet entitled ANG KATOTOHANAN TUNGKOL SA INK-1914 (INK stands for Iglesia ni Kristo which was their first registration name until the "K" was changed to "C")
“Idaragdag natin dito ang talata 29, bilang susog sa talatang 28 na ginagamit nila, at ganito ang karugtong:

Ang aking Ama (wika niJesus), na sa kanila ay nagbigay sa akin ay lalong dakila kaysa lahat; at hindi sila maaagaw ninuman sa kamay ng Ama." Ito bang nasusulat na ito sa kanilang PASUGO ay mabubura pa nila? Gayon din itong garantiyang sinasabi ni Jesus hinggil [sa] mga magiging tauhan niya? At higit pa bang paniniwalaan natin itong mga maling aral!

At bilang kalakip nito ay sisikapin pa natin ang isang banggit na nasusulat sa PASUGO Hunyo 1940, p. 27:

"Papaano ang pag-aalaga at pag-iingat sa pananampalataya? Wala tayong dapat gawin kundi manatili sa mga aral ng Dios na ating napag-aralan. Ito ang ginawa ng unang Iglesia. Sila'y nanatiling matibay sa aral ng mga Apostol. Ganito rin ang dapat nating gawin."

Do I need to say more than what your official magazine has CONFIRMED? You can’t alter what was written, do you?

Therefore the FIRST CHURCH never apostatized BUT some members did apostatized like FELIX MANALO an ex-Catholic!

That was bibilically prophesied!!!

….and when all the Apostles were dead, the members of the true Church of Christ will be condemned.

You said that the “members of the true Church of Christ” will be condemned when “all the apostles were dead?

Now this is very interesting.

Let us find out who were these “members” of the “TRUE” Church of Christ being “condemned” and persecuted from the year when ALL the APOSTLES were dead?

Let’s take St. John the Apostle who was believed to have died between 80 A.D. to 120 A.D. So let’s TRACE BACK which is this TRUE CHURCH members were persecuted?

Try to CLICK your mouse in the links below to enhance your historical knowledge. If in doubt, please exert more efforts to consult encyclopedias and atlases.

Apostolic Age 47 A.D. to 100 A.D.
Ante-Nicene Period 101 A.D. to 321 A. D.

From 47 A.D to 321 A.D. those years, there has been NO MENTION of other churches but a CHURCH or the CATHOLIC CHURCH. At times the this CHURCH is being referred as “Church of God” .

So right after the death of the Apostles, members of the TRUE CHURCH of CHRIST who were CATHOLICS were persecuted and condemned to death. Many of them were fed to hungry lions and tortured the way Jesus was crucified on the cross.

So if you are trying to associate your REGISTERED church to the FIRST CENTURY CHURCH, please stop fooling yourselves because many people are reading your assertions and it seriously reflect the kind of teachings they taught you in Manalo’s church.

All who did not believe with those false prophets have been tortured to death. Hence what the Catholic Church did to some famous people like Galileo,


Wrong again!

NOT ALL!

Below is a list of strongly anti-Catholic bigots who turned history upside down into religious warfare.

  • James Armunus and his brothers died a NATURAL DEATH in 1609 A.D.
  • Theodore Bucer (Butcer) died a NATURAL DEATH in 1551 A.D.
  • Heinrich Bullinger died a NATURAL DEATH in 1575 A.D.
  • John Calvin died a NATURAL DEATH in 1564 A.D.
  • Desiderius Erasmus died a NATURAL DEATH in 1536 A.D.
  • George Fox died a NATURAL DEATH in 1591 A.D.
  • John Knox died a NATURAL DEATH in 1572 A.D.
  • Martin Luther died a NATURAL DEATH in 1546 A.D.
  • Philip Melanchthon died a NATURAL DEATH in 1560 A.D.
  • Meno Simons died a NATURAL DEATH in 1561 A.D.
  • Philip Jakob Spener died a NATURAL DEATH in 1705 A.D.
  • Ulrich Zwingli was killed in a battle 1531 A.D.
(Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protestant_Reformation)

For Galileo he DIED a NATURAL DEATH due to high fever in 1642 A.D. And he remained a Catholic until death. The CHURCH has nothing to do with his death.

…the 3 Filipino priests (GOMBURZA), Jose Rizal and the people that was called the "insidioso" because they fight the beliefs of the Roman Catholic Church...

Who taught you that GARBAGE story? Have you got any proper sense of searching the real issue behind their deaths?

FYI, Frs. GomBurZa were executed in 1872 A.D. by the Spanish Colonial Authorities and the CHURCH has nothing to do with their execution. Similarly Jose Rizal died through a brutal execution by the Spanish Colonial Authorities in 1898. The CHURCH has nothing to do with his death.

In fact, among his best friends who were there with him before Rizal’s execution were priests and his relative Fr. Marciano Guzman. Witnesses saw him kissed the cross before leading him to be executed in Bagumbayan (Luneta).

For the information of all ignorant INC members, GomBurZa and Dr. JOSE RIZAL were NEVER ANTI-CATHOLICS.

They DID NOT attack the TEACHINGS of the CHURCH. Rather they CONDEMNED the WRONGDOINGS of some PRELATES during their times!

And since the TRUTH was held from you, you should turn back to your PAID ministers and ask them why they need to LIE just to assert their SELF PROCLAIMED TRUTH.

Your paid ministers’ gross dishonesty is extremely despicable.

So I won’t be surprised if your iglesia will come up with the story blaiming the CHURCH for the death of Felix Manalo and Eraño Manalo.

Now, God created these "LAST DAYS" to bring up the true church, to be RESTORED on it's original teachings... and bring to it's Salvation that is truly near to come...

God bless this site that can enlighten men with the truth... Giving chance to us to search for our real freedom and reach our salvation...

God DID NOT create the “Last Days”. It was PART of his SALVIFIC PLANS that on the last days there would be coming FALSE PROPHETS and FALSE ANGELS and FALSE MESSENGERS USING the name of JESUS.

Felix ex-Catholic turned Protestants like Manalo et.all fulfilled that Biblical Prophesies.

Did NOT the Bible forewarned us about the coming of the anti-Christ?

According to ST. PAUL, all of the DECEIVER self-proclaimed pastors and ministers who come preaching ANOTHER CHRIST “LET HIM BE ACCURSED”! says in Gal. 1:8.

And since there IS NO NEED of RESTORING the CHURCH, there is NO NEED of having a SUGO. The ORIGINAL CHURCH NEVER APOSTATIZED, proof is that IT’S NOW more than 2,000 years old.

Truly Jesus’ words were fulfilled: “THE GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL” (Mt. 16) and indeed HIS CHURCH is still standing!

Thanks for blessing this site.

Yes, we should be sharers of TRUTH.

Welcome to the CATHOLIC CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST!

  2. Hi. I'm Josh Banate. Great post! Thank you for defending our Church. INC? They're the real anti-Christ! I-glesia N-i anti-C-risto! They said, in order to be saved, you must be baptized in INC. Do these foolish ignorants know that their founder, Felix Manalo, was not even baptized as an INC? If there is someone who will go to hell, then it is their leader!
