Heto na naman ang isang komento ng isang kaanib ng INC ni Manalo na nagpakilalang Anonymous sa post nating: Iglesia ni Cristo's biggest dome and the numbers behind it.
Iyan ang buong PAGMAMAYABANG nitong isang kaanib ng INC ni Manalo. Hindi raw nila SINASAMBA si CRISTO.
Tingnan natin ang mga ARAL at TURO ng yumaong ERAÑO V. MANALO sa kanyang aklat na pinamagatang "FUNDAMENTAL BELIEFS OF THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO (CHURCH OF CHRIST)" na NILIMBAG sa Maynila, Pilipinas noong taong 1989.
No. 14: The Lord Jesus Christ, Part I : Christ should be highly honored and worshipped by members of the Church of Christ because this is the will of God (Phil.2:9-11). Christ should be recognized as the Son of God (Mt.3:7), Lord (Acts 2:36), Saviour (Acts 5:31), Mediator (1Tim.2:5), a holy man who did not commit sin (1 Pet.2:21-22). The attributes mentioned here give no indication to His nature which we believe is of a man (Jn.8:40); He is not the true God. (Ezek.28:2) Man should also renounce the belief that Christ is true God and true man (Hos.11:9)
Isa na namang pagmamayabang ng mga kaanib ng INC na nagmamarunong sa kanilang "bagong" pananampalatayang INIMBENTO ng kanilang SUGO at ANGHEL.
Iyan din kasi ang problema kung ang mga ARAL ay NAKATAGO sa CENTRAL ng INC at hindi nililimbag para naman mabasa ito ng mga kaanib nila. Tuloy na-bokya itong nagpakilalang "Anonymous". Aba'y dapat lang siyang mag-"Anonymous" sapagkat baka bukas o makalawa ay TIWALAG na siya sa INC ng mga Manalos.
Kaya't ang katanungan lamang ay ganito: Sino ba ang dapat SAMBAHIN ang NAG-IISANG DIOS or si CRISTO na TAO LAMANG ayon sa pagtuturo ng INC ni Manalo (Fundamental Beliefs No. 15 "...the true God is not Christ...")
Anong sabi ng BANAL na KASULATAN tungkol sa PAGSAMBA?
Heto ang galing sa Luke 4:8
"Jesus said to him in reply, “It is written: ‘You shall worship the Lord, your God, and him alone shall you serve.’”
Na hinango naman ni Cristo sa Jewish Torah Deuteronomy 6:13:
"The LORD, your God, shall you fear; him shall you serve, and by his name shall you swear."
DIOS LAMANG ang DAPAT SAMBAHIN!
John 1:1 -
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
"And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.."
"For this reason the Jews tried all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the sabbath but he also called God his own father, making himself equal to God."
"That is why I told you that you will die in your sins. For if you do not believe that I AM,* you will die in your sins.” Note: In the Greek, "He" is not there.
"Jesus said to them,i “Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I AM.”"
PANSININ, nagpakilala rin ang Dios kay Moses sa pangalang "I AM": Exodus 3:14
"God replied to Moses: I am who I am.* Then he added: This is what you will tell the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you."
"The Father and I are one.”
The Jews again picked up rocks to stone him.s 32Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of these are you trying to stone me?”
The Jews answered him, “We are not stoning you for a good work but for blasphemy. You, a man, are making yourself God.”
"Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
"For in him dwells the whole fullness of the deity* bodily, and you share in this fullness in him, who is the head of every principality and power."
"Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus,
Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped.
Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross.
Because of this, God greatly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
"but of the Son:na hinango naman sa Psalm 45:7,
“Your throne, O God,* stands forever and ever;
and a righteous scepter is the scepter of your kingdom."
"Your throne, O God,* stands forever;
your royal scepter is a scepter for justice.."
Heto naman ang pagsabi ni HESUS na siya'y DAPAT SAMBAHIN. Ang pagkasabi ni Cristo ay "SAMBAHIN LAMANG ANG DIOS" subalit SIYA'Y SINAMBA!
"At this, Jesus said to him, “Get away, Satan! It is written: ‘The Lord, your God, shall you worship and him alone shall you serve.’."’
“Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star* at its rising and have come to do him homage.”
"...and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh." (Ang ibang mga translations ay napapaloob ang salitang "homage" sa "worship".)
"Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, “Truly, you are the Son of God.”
"And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage."
"When Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, he found him and said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” He answered and said, “Who is he, sir, that I may believe in him?” Jesus said to him, “You have seen him and the one speaking with you is he.”q 38He said, “I do believe, Lord,” and he worshiped him."
"And again, when he leads* the first-born into the world, he says:
“Let all the angels of God worship him..'"
Nagdasal ang mga KRISTIANO kay CRISTO:
"But he, filled with the holy Spirit, looked up intently to heaven and saw the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand of God, and he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” But they cried out in a loud voice, covered their ears,* and rushed upon him together. They threw him out of the city, and began to stone him. The witnesses laid down their cloaks at the feet of a young man named Saul. As they were stoning Stephen,q he called out, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.”* Then he fell to his knees and cried out in a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them”; and when he said this, he fell asleep."
1 Cor. 1:1-2
"Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,* and Sosthenes our brother,a 2to the church of God that is in Corinth, to you who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be holy, with all those everywhere who call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours." (Ang mga katagang, "to call upon the name of the Lord" ay mga katagang nagsasaad ng pananalangin.)
1 Kings 18:24
"You shall call upon the name of your gods, and I will call upon the name of the LORD. The God who answers with fire is God.” All the people answered, “We agree!”
"I will bring the one third through the fire;
I will refine them as one refines silver,
and I will test them as one tests gold.
They will call upon my name, and I will answer them;
I will say, “They are my people,”
and they will say, “The LORD is my God.”
"For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach?
SIYA ang ALPHA at OMEGA
"Thus says the LORD, Israel’s king,
its redeemer, the LORD of hosts:
I am the first, I am the last;
there is no God but me."
"When I caught sight of him, I fell down at his feet as though dead.* He touched me with his right hand and said, “Do not be afraid. I am the first and the last,j 18the one who lives. Once I was dead, but now I am alive forever and ever. I hold the keys to death and the netherworld."
John 20:28 Kung mali man si Santo Tomas, bakit hindi ito ITINAMA ni CRISTO sa pagsabing "My Lord and my God!"
(in Greek, Ταῦτα ἐν Βηθανίᾳ ἐγένετο πέραν τοῦ Ἰορδάνου, ὅπου ἦν ὁ Ἰωάννης βαπτίζων. ["Ho Kurios mou kai ho Theos mou"]).
O siguro ay napagtanto na ng mga KAANIB ng INC ng mga Manalo na tama nga na SAMBAHIN si HESUS ayon sa BIBLIA pero ang SUMAMBA sa ISANG TAO LAMANG na HESUS ay isang bagay na HINDI SINASANG-AYUNAN ng BANAL na SALITA.
Sapagkat ang ITINUTURO ng BIBLIA ay:
- Sumamba sa IISANG DIOS.
- Ang DIOS at si CRISTO ay IISA
- Sambahin si CRISTO
- SAMBAHIN si ang DIOS at si CRISTO sapagkat siya ay IISANG DIOS na BANAL
