"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

INC: They can never crush the Church which Christ built!

St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City (Source: Introduction to the Roman Catholic Church)
Can the INC of Felix Manalo CRUSH the Church which Christ have built?

Title: Simple WAY to CRUSH the term “CATHOLIC”

From Net54 Forum

If Catholic Religion was founded by Christ, why is it that there was no mention in of the term Catholic in the bible?

Catholics must have questioned themselves why Christ being the founder of true religion did NOT use or HAS NO IDEA with the term Catholic as part of the Official Name of the group which He started.

Findings:
Catholic therefore is neither from Christ nor from the Apostles.

Catholic Violations:
1. The All or None Rule, if is from God it must be purely from the bible and nothing mans own speculative teachings. The adding of the word Catholic to the official Name of the true religion and the subtraction of the most important Name which is "Christ".

2. There is no implication in the bible that after the death of Christ and the Apostles Church of Christ the Official name of the true religion be replaced by the Holy Catholic Apostolic ROMAN Church.

By the way, having less than 10% holy mass attendees even in a religious country like the Philippines is a clear fact HOW BROKE CATHOLICISM IS. Imagine how worse it is in North America, Europe, and even in Latin America.

Result:
Catholic Properties being sold and some of it were bought by the Iglesia Ni Cristo.

First of all, our Lord made an everlasting assurance that HIS CHURCH can NEVER be crushed. He promised that "the gates of hell shall not prevail." (Mt. 16:16-18), indeed HIS CHURCH is still resounding and stirring up nations and peoples in the 21st century to the Third Millennium!

This INC trying to fool himself is going against the will of Christ.

Kingdoms and empires tried crushing the CHURCH but now they are all in history. And the CATHOLIC CHURCH is still standing, vibrantly breathing for this CHURCH is CHRIST'S and not man's.

Do not allow yourselves to be TRICKED by these DECEIVERS of FAITH. Always remember, that the BIBLE is OUR BOOK! It is a CATHOLIC BOOK and not Manalo's.

In fact, the Iglesia ni Cristo DO NOT have Bible of their own. What a SHAME!  They RELIED heavily on our Bible and and Protestant versions of the Bible.

Wala silang sariling kanila! NAKIKIHIRAM lang!

And be assured that the CHURCH is the "pillar and bulwark of truth." (1 Tim 3:15).

If Catholic Religion was founded by Christ, why is it that there was no mention in of the term Catholic in the bible?

The word "CATHOLIC" is from two Greek words "kata" and "holos". Thus our English word "CATHOLIC" comes from those two Greek words.

That's what we call "ETYMOLOGY" or the origin of words. These words are there in the Greek translation!


Using their own set standards, how could they believe in a BIBLE when the word "bible" is NOT even found in the Bible itself?

The same with the words "Felix Manalo", "Eraño Manalo", "Eduardo" and "Angelo"?

They might be surprised even the word "Pilipinas" is not even mentioned there? How bout "Diliman"? or "Quezon City"? Surely you will never find these words in the Bible. Not even the words "Iglesia ni Cristo" is found in any translation except in the TAGALOG!

For Manalo's INC, surely, they will agree with me.  They do believe even these words are not even mentioned in the Bible.

So why they are so much fretting out with the word "catholic" when most of what they hold dear to their faith are NOT even found in the Bible?

However before they rejoice in the words "Iglesia ni Cristo" read my earlier post Alin nga ba ang "binabati ng lahat ng mga Iglesia ni Cristo: Iglesia sa Pinas o Iglesia sa Roma?

Catholics must have questioned themselves why Christ being the founder of true religion did NOT use or HAS NO IDEA with the term Catholic as part of the Official Name of the group which He started.

INC members should ask themselves: Why Christ would specifically name a Church after himself when in fact there was ONLY ONE CHRIST which HE founded?

If HE is the ONLY one who has the SOLE AUTHORITY to build a CHURCH, it's futile and unncessary to name to him.  

That would be very "stupid" thing to do.  (Alam mo nang IKAW lang ang tanging makapagtayo eh ilalagay mo pa ang pangalan mo?)

Unless there were Christ II or Christ III or IV or V or LIV etc that the ORIGINAL CHRIST should put emphasis on "ME-church".

But there was ONLY ONE CHRIST and HE ALONE built this ONE CHURCH-- no more!And what is written in Romans 16:16 was never a command. It was implied that THERE EXIST a CHURCH which is CHRIST's!

Therefore, whether it is named as "Church of Christ" or "Church of God" or "Church of the Living God" or "Church of the Savior" etc, it will not change the FACT that this CHURCH in many names is the same ONE CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST which is now known as the ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC CHURCH having 22 different RITES but belonging to ONE CHURCH-- the CATHOLIC CHURCH!

On the other hand, we should be thanking the INC's own Official Magazine because they too confirms that truth when it says:

“Ang Iglesia Katolika na sa pasimula ay siyang Iglesia ni Cristo." (PASUGO Abril 1966, p. 46)

And that there is ONLY ONE who CAN build a church, no one but Christ:

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 Nobyembre 1940, p. 23).

And because they too know very well that THERE IS ONLY ONE CHURCH Jesus built, they also believed that all other churches claiming to be "churches of Christ" (iglesia ni Cristo)  are far from being true. Therefore they are but ARE FAKE churches:

“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 Mayo 1968, p. 7).

As a proof of that PERPETUAL EXISTENCE of the Catholic Church as the true "Church of Christ" (Pasugo April 1966 p. 46) the same official magazine confirms that they need to imitate this SAME CHURCH whose FAITH remain STEADFAST:

"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." (PASUGO Hunyo 1940, p. 27)

Findings:

Catholic therefore is neither from Christ nor from the Apostles.

On the contrary, here is what secular historical on the Catholic Church:

Wikipedia confirms the HISTORICITY of the Catholic Church as the CHURCH being identified in the Bible-- founded by Jesus Christ.

In the History of the Catholic Church it says that the Catholic Church was "founded by Jesus Christ at the Confession of Peter".

Online Britannica Encyclopedia: "The The Roman Catholic Church traces its history to Jesus Christ and the Apostles. Over the course of centuries it developed a highly sophisticated theology and an elaborate organizational structure headed by the papacy, the oldest continuing absolute monarchy in the world."

About.com: "The New Testament disciples of Jesus Christ provided the beginning origins of the Roman Catholic Church."

By the way, having less than 10% holy mass attendees even in a religious country like the Philippines is a clear fact HOW BROKE CATHOLICISM IS. Imagine how worse it is in North America, Europe, and even in Latin America.

Result:
Catholic Properties being sold and some of it were bought by the Iglesia Ni Cristo.

Once again let's EXPOSE these LIARS and DECEIVERS of FAITH!!!


In NORTH AMERICA: Out of 448,587,847 total population, there are about 173,212,640 Catholics (38.61% of the total population).

In EUROPE: Out of 750,072,510, there are about 283,916,457 Catholics, around 37.85% of the total population.

In SOUTH AMERICA (Latin): Out of 371,363,897, there are about 299,570,011 Catholics, around 80.66% of the total population.

In fact, out of 6,442,583,922 total population in the world, 17.18% of it are Catholics. Which means there are 1,181,368,942 Catholics in the world.

And how about the POPULATION of the INCorporated Church of Manalo?  Any number??!!!

The truth is: Manalo's INC paid ministers should DOUBLE-TIME doing their "Pamamahayag", because just for the past year, there are about 15,000,000 (15 million) new members added to the Catholic Church.

Yes you heard me right, 15 MILLION Catholics were added!!!!

So how many were new converts to the INC of Manalo? Any statistics?...

According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, members of the INC of Manalo makes up only 2.3% of the Total population of the whole Philippines

This might frustrate this WISHFUL INCorporated Church of Manalo member.  There is no way that the CATHOLIC CHURCH OF CHRIST would fall.

In one of my posts at "Ang Iglesia Katolika ay Tuluyan ng Bumagsak sa Kanluran" ayon sa kaanib ng Iglesia ni Cristo a certain INCorporated Church of Manalo member came up with another LIE.  Only to be caught off-handed ASKING MORE DONATIONS!!!!

With those arrogance that the INC is buying properties abroad (and even building it's Centennial Arena), it only proves one thing!

That the Iglesia ni Cristo founded by Feilx Manalo in 1914 is a BUSINESS INCorporated 1914 All Right Reserved Trademark-- disguising as a Church.

Therefore, this article IGLESIA NI CRISTO IN A NUTSHELL is just exposing that secrecy.  Thanks to this "libelous" article! (Read my earlier post: Why a multi-million church without an official website.)

So can Manalo's Iglesia ni Cristo crush the CHURCH Jesus built in Jerusalem?

Impossible!

Thanks to their Official Magazine: 

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."

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."

Therefore, we encourage members of Manalo's Church to heed what their Official Pasugo is saying. They should hold STEADFAST to the FAITH of the FIRST CHURCH.

And what is this FIRST CHURCH?

Thanks to INC's official magazine PASUGO:

PASUGO Abril 1966, p. 46:

"Ang Iglesia Katolika na sa pasimula ay siyang Iglesia ni Cristo."

YES!

The CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST is no other than the CATHOLIC CHURCH!!!  And this CHURCH will never be crushed!!!!

PASUGO Mayo 1968, p. 5:
"... hindi sila malilipol kailan man."
