"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.

CAIRO (AFP) - An Egyptian military court on Sunday sentenced two Coptic Christians to five years in jail for violence and trying to turn a factory into an unlicensed church, judicial sources said.

The two men, also convicted of possessing weapons, were arrested on May 18 after clashes between Christians and Muslims in Cairo's Ain Shams district as the Copts planned to hold prayers in the building.

A Coptic-led group that took part in a reconciliation meeting between the two sides says the two men are innocent and their lawyers will try to appeal the ruling.

Sameh Abdel Satar, a member of the Egypt Lovers and Peace Society, said the Coptic Church had obtained permission in January to convert the building, which it had purchased in 2006, into a church.

Bravity in Leadership with Honest Truthfulness

"President Abbas must do what I have done. I stood before my people, and I told you it wasn’t easy for me, and I said… “I will accept a Palestinian state.” It is time for President Abbas to stand before his people and say… “I will accept a Jewish state.”

Chinese youth make an appeal for World Youth Day in Madrid

Rome (AsiaNews) – Fifteen young Chinese Catholics would like to participate in World Youth Day scheduled for 16-21 August in Madrid (Spain). Although they work and have saved some money, they cannot sustain the cost of travel and for this reason would like to ask other young people around the world for their help.

AsiaNews received the appeal yesterday, a day before the World Day of Prayer for China, which Benedict XVI has promoted to strengthen the faith and the unity of Chinese Catholics with the universal Church and the pope.

The desire to travel to Madrid for World Youth Day is similarly motivated. “These young people live their faith in a very closed environment,” their parish priest said. “Meeting other young people who share their spirit as well as the Holy Father would be a fundamental experience of communion with the Church and of its universality.”

Iglesia ba ni Cristo ang INC o Iglesia ng mga Manalo?

Paulit-ulit man ang sagot, paulit-ulit din ang tanong ng mga INC na inaralan ng yumaong Ka Felix Manalo na dating Katoliko pero nagtayo ng kanyang sariling iglesia.  Heto na naman po ang isang komento mula sa post natin na Iglesia ni Cristo Symbol, nasa Biblia ba ang kahulugan ng kanilang bandila? Sasagutin natin punto y punto para maliwanagan naman natin si G. Lyndon Domantay na kaanib ng kulto ni Manalo:


Anonymous said...

Iglesia ni Cristo member (Lyndon Domantay):

bakit ba pinipilit niyo na Iglesia Ni Manalo. Kami ay IGLESIA NI CRISTO..wala itinuturong doktrina na Iglesia ni Manalo ang kinaaniban namin at kinikilala namin na ang Panginoong Jesus ang ULO ng IGLESIA (Colosas 1:18)

Maraming salamat po Ginoong Lyndon Domantay sa pagkomento sa aking articulo.  Hindi ko man naising saktan ang iyong kalooban pero kailangan lamang po nating itama at ituwid ang mga mapanlinlang at maling pananaw ng mga kaanib ng INC-1914.

Sa aking pagkaalam, ang sabi po ng inyong INC ay PEKE raw po ang mga "nagsisibangon ngayong mga Iglesia ni Cristo..." Ito po ay mababasa sa inyong PASUGO, Mayo 1968 Pahina 7 po.

At kailan ba naitatag ang INC? PASUGO Agosto-Setyembre 1964, Pahina 5 rin po ang nagpapatunay na ito ay naitatag ni Felix Manalo noong Julyo 21, 1914, AYON NGA sa "sinasabi sa rehistro".  Sa makatuwid ang INC na tatag ni Felix Manalo ay kamakailan lamang "naibangon" kaya ito ay PEKE at HNDI TUNAY.

At bakit naman dapat na IGLESIA NI MANALO ang iglesiang yan ay sapagkat AYON sa Pasugo Agosto-Setyembre 1964, pahina 5, na TUNAY NGA na SINASABI ng REGISTRO na si K. FELIX MANALO ang NAGTATAG ng IGLESIA NI KRISTO.

Kung sino ang nagtatag, marapat na sa kanya ang itinatag!

PASUGO Hulyo 1952, p. 4:
“Kung ang babalingan ng pag-uusapan ay ang nagtatag, dapat na siya ang may-ari ng itinatag, at sa kanya rin manggagaling ang mga aral at turo na ipinatutupad."
Ngayon may angal ka pa?
**********************************************

Tungkol sa INC flag ang topic...>>>mukhang mas Pinapahalagahan niyo ang flag kaysa sa aral..

Kami ba ang nagpapahalaga ng flag? Makipagpustahan ako kung may makikita kang FLAG NG VATICAN sa mga sasakyan ng mga Katoliko! Ang makikita mo ay ang KRUS na simbolo ng KALIGTASAN ng SANLIBUTAN! Huwag mong baligtarin ang pangyayari. Tingnan mo kung paano yabang na yabang ang mga kaanib niyong winawagayway pa ang bandilang at simbulong WALANG PALIWANAG at WALANG IBIG SABIHIN!
**********************************************

Kaya may mga INC symbol sa mga sasakyan ay para maipakita nila ang kanilang kahalalan... pag nakita ang ganyang symbol sa sasakyan, makikilala na siya ay nasa Iglesia ni Cristo...

So anong ibig sabihin ulit ng bandila niyo para naman maunawaan namin kung anong "kahalalan" ito. Baka naman "kahangalan" ang magwagayway ng isang simbolo na walang paliwanag at walang ibig sabihin. Lalabas na walang saysay ang "kahalalan" kung walang paliwanag ang mga bagay-bagay na ginagawa niyo!

ang kulay na Green, White, Red ay maraming kahulugan- nasa tao yan kung paano niya ito papakahulugan..

kung gusto mo talagang malaman kung ano talaga ang tunay na kahulugan niyan, makipag-usap ka ng masinsinan at personal sa ministro ng Igleisa ni Cristo.. sasagutin ka niya,

Alam kong di mo kayang ipaliwanag ang mga kulay na GREEN, WHITE at RED kasi mimong INC Central walang OPISYAL na paliwanag. Mas matalino ka pa ba sa mga nakaupo sa Central offices niyo?

So sige sakyan kita. Depende sa nagbibigay ng kahulugan. Kung ayaw niyo ng paliwanag tungkol sa ITALIAN FLAG bibigyan natin ng kahulugan:

GREEN - BERDE ito, ibig bang sabihin BERDE ang mga namumuno sa INC?
WHITE - BLANGKO, ibig bang sabihin, walang alam ang mga INC?
RED - DUGO, ibig bang sabihin mamatay-tao ang mga INC?

So matatanggap mo ba kung iyan ang pakahulugan ng tumitingin sa bandila niyo? Natural hinde.  Kaya nga dapat may opisyal na paliwanag ang Central ng INC ni Manalo.
************************************************
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE CHURCH OF CHRIST AT FIRST(when the HOLY NAME OF CHRIST IS NOT YET REMOVED IN THE NAME OF HIS CHURCH, when the word "catholic" is not yet invented and when there are NO TEACHINGS THAT ARE NEVER TAUGHT BY CHRIST AND THE APOSTLES but lead to PAGANISM) .....

Ha? Saang hula-hoops mo naman nakuha ang mga information mo? Para naman hindi ka lalabas na MANGHUHULA at MAPANIWALA sa mga SABI-SABI at walang SARILING-BAIT, maglagay ka na lang ng source mo.

Pero tutulungan kita. Heto ang sabi ng WIKIPEDIA kung bakit nagkaroon ng pangalang "KATHOLOS" ang Iglesiang tinatag ni Cristo Hesus!

"The term "Catholic", derived from the Greek word καθολικός (katholikos), which means "universal" or "general", was first used to describe the Church in the early 2nd century. The term katholikos is equivalent to καθόλου (katholou), a contraction of the phrase κατὰ ὅλου (kata holou) meaning "according to the whole". Thus the full name Catholic Church roughly means "universal" or "whole" church."
Panis ang INC ni Manalo diyan. Second Century, walang wala pa ang INC ni Manalo so dream on, libre naman!
***********************************************
Dahil sa sinabi mong : "Purihin si Cristo Hesus. Narito po SIMBOLONG makakapagligtas sa atin!"-- tunay ngang mali ang aral niyo, at mukhang ito na nga ang nagawa ni SATANAS.--- NAPANIWALA KA NIYA NA ANG SIMBOLO ANG MAKAKAPAGLIGTAS SA ATIN..

*SA TOTOO LANG, HINDI ANG SIMBOLO ANG MAKAKAPAGPALIGTAS SA BAWAT TAO KUNDI ANG KATOTOHANAN- ANG MGA DALISAY NA ARAL.

PURIHIN ANG DIOS AT ANG PANGINOONG JESUS! -Lyndon

Sa lugar ng mga Muslim, BAWAL na BAWAL ang magsuot ng KRUS. Maaaring mahatulan ka ng pagkakulong kapag nakitaan ang isang tao ng KRUS.

Bakit kaya?

Sapagkat para sa mga Muslim, ang KRUS ay simbolo ng pagwawagi ng KRISTIANO. Hindi lang yan, HINDI sila naniniwalang si CRISTO ay namatay, lalo na sa pamamagitan ng kahiya-hiyang kamatayan sa Krus. Para sa kanila, propeta si Hesus at hindi papayag ang Dios na mamatay si Hesus ng nakakahiyang klase ng kamatayan.

Ang mga Hindu, Bhudists, Hudyo, alam nilang ang KRUS ay simbolo ng mga MANANAMPALATAYA kay HESUS. Bakit ba hindi niyo matanggap na ito nga ay simbolo ng kaligtasan AT  HINDI ANG BANDILA ng ITALIA!

The Christian cross, seen as a representation of the instrument of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, is the best-known religious symbol of Christianity. -Wikipedia

Ang KRUS ay pagwawagi ng DIOS laban sa kasalanan! Ito'y PAGLILIGTAS niya sa atin (kasama ba kayo kaya?).
Panghuli. Tingnan niyo ang larawan sa ibaba, "The True Church is back in Rome!" sabi ng Pasugo. Ang tanong eh "SI MANALO BA ANG CHURCH"?

 Pinapatunayan lang ng Pasugong ito na ang INC ay PAG-AARI ng mga MANALO dahil si Erano ang di umano ang pumunta sa Rome at hindi ang INC.

Note: nagpa-picture lang si Eraño at ginawang background ang Vatican dahil alam naman niyang ang "Sulat ni Pablo sa mga taga-Roma" ay patungkol sa mga gusaling nasa background niya!!!!

Masakit ang katotohanan ng HISTORY at nangungusap kay ERAÑO!

Forming a religious identity "without antagonism" in young Christians and Muslims

The Catholic Church is Reaching out to non-Christians and in particular the Muslims.  In Amman, Jordan the two faiths concluded a meeting between the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialouge and the Institute for the real inter-religious studies in the Jordanian capital city.  As concluded, both faiths have much values in common that should be highlighted and differences that must be respected.  -CD2000

Vatican City (AsiaNews) - Education, religious in particular, should not form identities in antagonism or in conflict, but on the contrary, while helping the youth to be well rooted in their own religious identity, it should favor the formation of identities open to other identities. This appears to have been the main focus of discussions in a meeting between the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and the Institute for the Amman based Royal Institute for Interfaith Studies (R.I.I.F.S.), held in Rome on "Human and religious values shared by Christians and Muslims for a common education. "

"Christians and Muslims - reads a statement released after the meeting - share basic human values like the sacred character of human life, human dignity and the fundamental inalienable rights deriving from it."

As for the religious values, “some of them are common to Christians and Muslims, meanwhile others are specific of each community. It is therefore important to point out commonalities and to identify differences. Respect for differences is in fact an important condition for an authentic dialogue”.

New bishop of Yanzhou ordained with Holy See approval

Bishop John Lu Peisen is the second legitimate pastor ordained since the beginning of the year. Two days ago the Pope's call to pray for the bishops who "suffer and are under pressure in exercising their episcopal ministry." Bishop Lu was a long time teacher at the seminary in Jinan.

Msgr. John Lu Peisen
Yanzhou (AsiaNews) – Msgr. John Lu Peisen was ordained today as bishop of Yanzhou (Shandong). Bishop Lu, who was a long time seminary professor is approved by the Holy See and the Chinese government. He is the second legitimate bishop ordained in China since the beginning of the year after Msgr. Liang Jiansen of Jiangmen. But just days ago, the honorary chairman of the Patriotic Association, Anthony Liu Bainian had promised ten episcopal ordinations without papal consent.

Bishop Lu’s ordination came two days after Benedict XVI’s call to observe the World Day of Prayer for the Church in China on May 24. In the appeal the Pope mentioned his “brother bishops” in China some of whom “suffer and find themselves under pressure in the exercise of their episcopal ministry.”

Bishop Fang Xinyao of Linyi, chairman of the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association, was the main celebrant. Bishops Zhao Fengchang of Liaocheng, Li Mingshu of Qingdao, Yang Yongqiang of Zhoucun and Zhang Xianwang of Jinan concelebrated. All bishops present were legitimate.

Ongoing killing of Christians in Iraq

The recent murder of a Christian in the north-Iraqi town of Kirkuk has again instilled terror in the small community.

Bp. Bashar Warda
Source: Air to the Church in Need - Ashur lssa Yaqub, a 29 year old working class citizen, was found dead by the police on Monday morning after being kidnapped Friday night. His body was badly mutilated and his hear severed after his poor family failed to pay the close to $100,000 ransom demanded by the kidnappers.

Violence against Christians is part of everyday life in Iraq. According to the Catholic Church, since 2004 a series of churches have been bombed, 7 priests killed and several bishops kidnapped.

Talking to the international Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), the Chaldean-Catholic Archbishop of Kirkuk, Louis Sako, said that he admires the endurance and strong faith of the Christians in his parish despite the continued violence.

“In all these years I never heard of one single Christian who converted to Islam,” Sako stressed.

In contrast, Muslims often came to his church and asked to be baptized. “But I´m not allowed to baptize Muslims,” Sako said. “That´s no freedom of religion!”

Syria: Increasing pressure on Christians

SYRIA, Inspire - As demonstrations against the Syrian government intensify, Christians are coming under increasing pressure to join the uprising - or leave, reports Barnabas Fund.

In one Christian village outside the southern city of Deraa, a home came under fire by a group of masked men on motorbikes, while Muslim residents in the village of Hala have issued an ultimatum to their Christian neighbours – to join the demonstrations against President Bashar al-Assad's regime or to leave.

Their demands are making life difficult for the Christians, who have closed their shops and are considering what course of action to take. Churches have also received threatening letters.

Barnabas Fund is one of the very few Christian agencies working to assist the Christians in Syria, and has done so for many years. They are in particular need of humanitarian help now, with food prices rocketing as the country's economy is affected by the unrest.

Patriotic Association threatens 10 episcopal ordinations without papal mandate

Hong Kong (AsiaNew) - The honorary chairman of the Patriotic Association, Anthony Liu Bainian has demanded that the Vatican “not interfere with the self-election and self-ordination” of bishops, [ie without papal mandate-ed] and recognize and support the elected bishops in their work of evangelization. " Liu Bainian, nicknamed "the Pope of China" as a result of his claiming to lead the entire Chinese Church, said there are still at least 10 candidates for the episcopate who will soon be elected according to the method of " self-election and self-ordination”, a method he says is "wanted by the Church in China."

Bishops: We would rather go to jail than give up promoting life

Manila, Philippines, PhilStar - Some Catholic prelates yesterday said that they would rather go to jail on charges of sedition than give up their campaign to promote life.

The statement was made in reaction to President Aquino’s threats that the anti-Reproductive Health (RH) bill groups who encourage civil disobedience through non-payment of taxes may face sedition or rebellion charges.

He can put us all in jail. We are willing to pay the price to save the unborn from modern Herods and save the executioners from the grasp of the evil one, Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles told CBCPNews, the official news service provider of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).

Cotabato Auxiliary Bishop Jose Collin Bagaforo said Amen! We obey God rather than man while Sorsogon Bishop Arturo Bastes said, Let him (President Aquino) charge all of us bishops, priests, religious, all the faithful with sedition because it is better to obey God rather than men and immoral laws.

Meantime, former CBCP president Archbishop Angel Lagdameo called on the Catholic faithful to wait and see as he emphasized the need for both sides to be calm, reasonable and consider the moral aspect of the issue.

In the end, we must obey God and not man, he said.

Turning the Tables on Atheists (Part 1)

Author Patrick Madrid Discusses "The Godless Delusion"

By Karna Swanson

GRANVILLE, Ohio, MAY 12, 2011 (EWTN/Zenit.org).- What would happen if Christians turned the tables on atheists and challenged them on their belief that God doesn't exist?

This is the premise of the book "The Godless Delusion: A Catholic Challenge to Modern Atheism," written by Patrick Madrid and Kenneth Hensley (Our Sunday Visitor), in which the internal contradictions of a non-belief in God, as well as the various incoherencies in the atheistic worldview, are exposed.

According to Madrid, "atheists are not accustomed to Christians subjecting atheism to a rigorous critique on its own merits. This is why our primary goal was to take a different approach by providing a philosophical critique of atheism itself."

Madrid is the author or editor of 16 books, the director of the Envoy Institute of Belmont Abbey College, the publisher of Envoy Magazine, and host of the Thursday edition of EWTN Radio's "Open Line" broadcast (3-5 p.m. ET).

The committee was tasked with "studying the project of unifying laws for the construction of places of worship, to be completed within 30 days."

Ex-Muslims Converted to Christianity face Death Threats





Ex-Muslim, Now Christian, HAMAS Leaders son warns the West against Islam

While I look unfavorably towards any primitive mythological sect, I truly believe in the underlying, fundamental right of free individuals to worship whichever divinities,as they wish, regardless of how absurd they may appear to enlightened Secular Humanists... HOWEVER, the monstrous, dangerous, murderous religious sect called Islam represents an enormous threat to LIBERTY and to the the freedom loving citizens of the CIVILIZED WESTERN WORLD, as outlined by this video where a courageous former Muslim (the son of the most dangerous fundamentalist groups - HAMAS), who, after risking the Islamic so-called crime of Apostasy, has now the courage to speak out in public, proclaiming (loud and clear) about the extremely dangerous nature of ISLAM. Consequently, I take a step forward by stating that ISLAM SHOULD BE CRIMINALIZED in the West, for it must be seen for what it truly is: A SECT OF HATRED and BRUTALITY, and thus a major threat to peace, security & civility.

This Easter the Archdiocese of Anchorage welcomed 83 converts into the Catholic Church. Some of these men and women hail from backgrounds that were hostile to the teachings of Catholicism.

THE CHALLENGE

As they tell it, Nicholas Myhre, Jason Yonk and Vanessa never pursued Catholicism. Rather, they were stunned at how their quests for spiritual truth led them to the very church about which they’d been warned.

Myhre’s mother, an agnostic Lakota Sioux, rejected organized religion and taught him that the Catholic Church forcibly indoctrinated the Natives in early America.

Catholic leader fears Islamic takeover in Egypt

Photo Source: Jesus of Nazareth
Egypt, Catholic Culture - A spokesman for Egypt’s small Catholic community has appealed to international leaders to support the country’s existing military regime, in order to prevent a takeover by Islamic fundamentalists.

Father Rafic Greich, the press officer for the Egyptian Catholic hierarchy, told the AsiaNews service that the situation for all Christians is “very critical” in the wake of widespread sectarian violence in Cairo. Police have closed down the capital, hoping to curb the violence, in which militant Muslims have attacked Coptic Orthodox churches. While no Catholic churches have yet been attacked, all Christians face an unsettled future, as Islamic fundamentalists show their rising power.

The “Arab spring” uprising that led to the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak was primarily a secular movement, Father Greich says, but the leaders of that movement have not made any subsequent impact on the national political scene, while Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood have moved to augment their power.

Don't encourage Arab revolutions, Melkite patriarch tells Western leaders

Patriarch Gregorios III
By Benjamin Mann
Damascus, Syria, (CNA).- Patriarch Gregorios III, the Syria-based head of the Melkite Greek-Catholic Church, is warning Western leaders not to encourage the revolutions currently shaking up the Middle East.

“Our Arab countries are not ready for revolutions, and not even for democracy of the European kind and model,” the patriarch explained in a recent letter to Western leaders. “I am asking the West not to encourage revolutions unconditionally here and there in the Arab world.”

In the patriarch's native Syria, government forces have killed hundreds of protesters in response to continuing mass demonstrations.

Muslims Attack Christians in Egypt, 12 Killed, 232 Injured

By Mary Abdelmassih
(AINA) -- Christians Copts in the area of Embaba were attacked Saturday evening by Muslim Salafis. The attacks lasted for 14 hours. The Muslims fired guns and rifles and hurled Molotov cocktails at Coptic churches, houses and businesses. 12 Copts were killed and 232 injured.

The church of Saint Mina church was the first to be attacked. According to its pastor Fr. Abanoub the attack started at 5.30 PM on Saturday May 7, when church parishioners noticed a large number of Salafis, estimated at 3000 men, congregating near the church. Anticipating trouble, the army was called. The Salafis went to the church and asked to search it because they believed a Christian girl named called Abir, who had converted to Islam, married a Salafi and wanted to revert back to Christianity, was hiding inside the church. The Muslims circulated a rumor that the husband of Abir received a call from her asking him to save her as she was being "tortured" inside the church.

The governor of Giza said that there are no girls hiding in St. Mina Church. He falsely claimed that things were under control and a "reconciliation" meeting will be arranged for tomorrow. The army later cordoned off the entire district of Embaba.

At least 6 dead in Egyptian sectarian violence

Egyptians gather as firefighters extinguish a blaze at a church following clashes at another church between Muslims and Christians in Cairo on Sunday.
Cairo, Egypt (CNN) -- At least six people were killed and 120 injured in sectarian clashes outside a church in Cairo on Saturday, officials said.

A group of Muslim Salafists attacked the Saint Mena Coptic Orthodox Church. Gunfire rang out as people sprinted for cover.

"With my own eyes I saw three people killed and dozens injured," said Mina Adel, a Christian resident. "There's no security here. There's a big problem. People attacked us, and we have to protect ourselves."

Egyptian Interior Ministry spokesman Alla Mahmoud said in a statement that six people were killed and 120 injured.

He said the clashes were sparked by reports of a Christian woman who married a Muslim man and was allegedly being held inside the church.

"church of Christ" or "Church Of Christ"?


"iglesia ni Cristo" or "Iglesia Ni Cristo"?
"church of Christ" or "Church Of Christ"?


Many of the detractors of the INC always say that the phrase "church of Christ" written in the bible in any translation and to other books written by protestant/catholic authors mentioned, is that the phrase do not mean the "Church Of Christ/Iglesia ni Cristo" as it is written and starts in capital letter.

Is it true?

that the true church or the church established by Christ is not the "Church Of Christ/Iglesia Ni Cristo"?

Let me show you.

The Bible says it's "iglesia" NOT "Iglesia".

I thought Muslims say Osama bin Laden is NOT a Muslim..why they're Coming out to Support his cause??

Why now, Muslims (at least in the Philippines) are coming out supporting Osama bin Laden who was responsible in killings non-Muslims and "misrepresenting" Islam.  Why hail someone whom they accused of having "Hijacked Islam" of its truest meaning a "Peaceful Religion"?


Maybe I am confused or maybe I do not understand.  But precisely I don't have the answers. May the God of peace, the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses protect us infidels!

John Paul II to be listed in Guinness Book of Records





He's a man who has every right to enter the Guinness Book of World Records. During his pontificate, John Paul II, quickly broke all the records set by his predecessors. In fact, just a few months after being elected Pope, he was nicknamed Hurricane Wojtyla. He visited 129 countries. He made 104 trips abroad and another 146 within Italy. He traveled over 1,200,000 kilometers, which is more than three times the distance from Earth to the Moon or the equivalent of going around the world 30 times. -Xt3.com

DEAR BLUE STAR,
LET US CHECK THE VERSES:
[hi po father,Mateo 16:18-19 di po ba eto yung church na itinatag ni Pedro, the "Catholic Church" pero sinasabi din po ng INC na sila daw po yan]
IMPOSIBLENG SILA YAN KASI ANG TUNAY NA IGLESIA AY ITINATAG NI JESUS KAY SAN PEDRO AT HINDI KAY FELIX MANALO.
SI ST. PETER ANG KAUSAP NG PANGINOONG JESUS SAMATTHEW 16:18-19 AT HINDI SI FELIX MANALO. ANG KAPAL NAMAN NG MUKA NI MANALO E NI HINDI NGA NABANGGIT SA TALATA ANG PANGALAN NIYA, KAHIT ANG BUHOK NIYA SA KILI-KILI. E SI SAN PEDRO ANG TAHASANG PINATUTUNGKULAN NG TALATA. HE HE HE...
ISA PA, SA HOLY LAND ITINATAG ANG SANTA IGLESIA SAMANTALANG ANG IGLESIA NI MANALO AY SA PUNTA STA. ANA, MANILA. NAKU, ANG LAYO NON. HA HA HA... MANGARAP NA LANG SILA NG GISING. HA HA HA...
[at natalikod daw po tayo sa aral ng tunay na iglesia,]
KAHANGALAN LANG YAN NI MANALO. ANG SABI NGA NI CRISTO SA TALATA E HINDI MANANAIG KAHIT NA ANG KAPANGYARIHAN NG IMPIERNO SA SANTA IGLESIA:
Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
TIGNAN MO HINDI RAW MAGWAWAGI ANG MGA PINTUAN NG IMPIERNO LABAN SA SANTA IGLESIA TAPOS ANG MGA MANALO AY MAGTUTURO NA NATALIKOD ANG SANTA IGLESIA. YAN AY TAHASANG KASINUNGALINGAN. WALANG TALATA SA BIBLIA NA NAGSASABI NA NATALIKOD ANG SANTA IGLESIA. WALANG WALA.
[at eto pa po daw ang patunay nila 1 timoteo 4:1-5,]
E DI USISAIN NATIN AT TIGNAN ANG SINASABI NG TALATANG IYAN. BASAHIN NATIN ISA ISA:
1 Tim 4:1 Nguni't hayag na sinasabi ng Espiritu, na sa mga huling panahon ang iba'y magsisitalikod sa pananampalataya, at mangakikinig sa mga espiritung mapanghikayat at sa mga aral ng mga demonio,
HA HA HA... WALANG SINASABI DYAN NA ANG IGLESIA AY MATATALIKOD. WALANG WALA. KITA MO ANG KASINUNGALINGAN NG MGA MANALO. HA, HA, HA... ANG SABI ANG "IBA"... IT MEANS "SOME"... ANG ILAN LAMANG. HINDI LAHAT. HINDI ANG IGLESIA.
TAPOS, SINABI PA NA ITO AY MAGAGANAP SA MGA HULING PANAHON. ANG TANONG: SINO ANG LUMITAW SA HULING PANAHON? DI BA SI FELIX MANALO AT ANG IGLESIA MANOLISTA. SILA YON. SILA ANG LUMITAW SA HULING PANAHON.
ANO ANG TAWAG NG MGA MANOLISTA KAY FELIX MANALO? ANG SUGO SA HULING PANAHON. HA HA HA... E DI SIYA ANG TINUTUKOY NA BULAANG PROTETA SA HULING PANAHON NA MAGLILIGAW SA IBA. HA HA HA... MALIWANAG DI BA? KITANG KITA. AKMANG AKMA SA KANILA.
ANG IGLESIA CATOLICA BA E LUMITAW SA HULING PANAHON? HINDE. KASI SIMULA PA NUONG UNA, HINDI PA UMUUTOT ANG LOLO AT LOLA NI FELIX MANALO E MAY IGLESIA CATOLICA NA. MAS NAUNA PA NGA TAYO SA GOVIERNO NG PILIPINAS. HA HA HA... LUMITAW TAYO SA MGA UNANG PANAHON HINDI SA HULING PANAHON. KAYA SILA ANG KAMPON NG DEMONIO HINDI TAYO.
1 Tim 4:2 Sa pamamagitan ng pagpapaimbabaw ng mga tao na nagsisipagsalita ng mga kasinungalingan, na hinerohan ang kanilang mga sariling budhi ng waring bakal na nagbabaga;
AKMA YAN SA KANILA. IMAGINE MO E NAMATAY SI MANALO DAHIL SUMAMBULAT ANG BITUKA TAPOS NAGKE CLAIM SILA NA "ANGHEL" DAW SI FELIX MANALO. YAN AY DALISAY NA KASINUNGALINGAN.
GALIT SILA SA MGA TAONG NASA BIBLIA TULAD NI MARIA AT JOSE AT PEDRO AT PABLO SUBALIT UTO-UTO SILA SA MGA MANALO.
1 Tim 4:3 Na ipinagbabawal ang pagaasawa, at ipinaguutos na lumayo sa mga lamangkati, na nilalang ng Dios upang tanggapin na may pagpapasalamat ng mga nagsisisampalataya at nangakakaalam ng katotohanan.
HINDI TAYO NAGBABAWAL SA PAG-AASAWA DAHIL PINAKA MARAMI ANG IKINAKASAL NATIN. HE HE HE...
HINDI RIN NATIN IPINAGBABAWAL ANG LAMANG KATI KASI KUMAKAIN TAYO NG KARNE. PAG PIESTA NGA NATIN E MARAMING MGA LECHON. HE HE HE... SARAP. PABORITO KO ANG LECHON DE LECHE AT LECHONG KAWALI. YUMMY!!!! HA HA HA...
ANG SA ATIN LANG AY FASTING ON CERTAIN OCCASIONS. AT NASA BIBLIA ANG FASTING. HE HE HE... SI CRISTO NGA NAGFASTING E.
1 Tim 4:4 Sapagka't ang bawa't nilalang ng Dios ay mabuti, at walang anomang nararapat na itakuwil, kung tinatanggap na may pagpapasalamat:
ANG MGA MANOLISTA ANG NAGBABAWAL SA PAGKAIN. TAYONG MGA CATOLICO AY HINDI NAGBABAWAL SA PAGKAIN.
1 Tim 4:5 Sapagka't pinakababanal sa pamamagitan ng salita ng Dios at ng pananalangin.
KAYA NGA KAPAG ANG PAGKAIN AY NADASALAN NA ITO AY PINABANAL NA AT HINDI NA DAPAG IPAGBAWAL PA.
[ Father paki paliwanag nyo po kung may time po kayo, mas maganda po kasi kung kayo po na nakakaunawa nag mag explain kysa self-understanding lang po. thanks again father...]
I HOPE NAKATULONG ITONG PALIWANAG KO.
[Taga SJDM po ako pero bicolana... may kapatid po ako na naconvert sa mormons isama nyo po nawa sya sa prayer nyo na mag balik loob...]
SURE... GOD BLESS YOU.
