"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

Is Iglesia ni Cristo the Church of Christ?

Article author was Bro. Quirino M. Sugon Jr. from his blog Monk's Hobbit posted under the tag Iglesia ni Cristo

Official flag of the INC Church of Manalo without official explanation
Fr. Daniel J. McNamara, S.J., during one of our walks years ago, told us: “The Iglesia ni Cristo is neither a church nor of Christ.” It is worthwhile to ponder on his words as Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) celebrates its 95th Anniversary last July 27, 2009–95 years after Felix Y. Manalo made the INC into a corporation with him as the executive minister last July 27, 1914.

A true church of Christ has four marks: one, holy, Catholic, apostolic (c.f. Catechism of the Catholic Church Art. 811 ). If one of this does not hold, then the Iglesia ni Cristo is a false church of Christ.

1. Is the Iglesia ni Cristo one? The INC is is united in doctrine and even in voting. No wonder many politicians who wished to be reelected this coming 2010 elections are all congratulating INC in its 95th anniversary. The INC passed the first test.

2. Is the Iglesia ni Cristo holy? The Catholic Church has produced numerous saints: beggars and kings, scholars and soldiers, old and young. Can the INC name at least one–only one–person in all its history whom they consider as a saint, a man or woman worthy of emulation, whose life reflected the radical message of the gospel–a Mother Teresa, an Ignatius of Loyola, a Francis of Assisi? The INC can give none.

3. Is the Iglesia ni Cristo catholic? Catholicity simply means universal. The INC is universal in space: the INC is now found in many countries and its mission is to convert the whole world. But the INC is not universal in time: where was INC in the first centuries of Christianity, when the truths of the Faith were debated and clarified? The INC was not there. It is true that INC proclaims an affinity with the teachings of Bishop Arius (AD 250-336), the founder of Arianism, a heresy which denies the divinity of Christ. But between Arius and Manalo is 1,600 years of absence.

Catholic also means “according to totality” or “in keeping with the whole” (Catechism of the Catholic Church Art. 830):

The Catholic Church is catholic because Christ is present in her. “Where there is Christ Jesus, there is the Catholic Church.” In her subsists the fullness of Christ’s body united with its head; this implies that she receives from him “the fullness of the means of salvation” which he has willed: correct and complete confession of faith, full sacramental life, and ordained ministry of apostolic succession. The Church was, in this fundamental sense, catholic on the day of Pentecost and will always be so until the day of Parousia.

The INC also claims this catholicity, for they also adopt the following catholic doctrine:

Outside the church there is no salvation.

I remembered one of INC’s television show called Tamang Daan, the Right Way in contrast to Eli Soriano’s Datin Daan or the Old Way. In their show, one of INC’s argument to support their doctrine is a quotation from a catholic author: “Outside the Church of Christ there is no salvation.” The two INC ministers–always two since two is the sign of Socratic dialogue for knowing the truth–will tell the readers that the text they are quoting has the imprimatur of the Catholic Church. Then they make a twist of Faith: translate this sentence in Filipino and you will see that “Outside Iglesia ni Cristo there is no salvation.” Oh, what a proof.

4. Is the Iglesia ni Cristo apostolic? To be apostolic, the INC must be founded by an apostle, in the same way as the Roman Catholic Church was founded by Apostles Peter and Paul. But the fact that INC only celebrated its 95th founding anniversary means that INC could never be founded by an apostle. An apostle was a person sent by Christ with the authority to preach the Kingdom of God (c.f. Mt 10). The apostles in turn ordained bishops and gave them authority to govern the church, as Timothy was ordained by Paul through the laying of the hands:

Do not neglect the gift you have, which was conferred on you through the prophetic word with the imposition of hands of the presbyterate. (1 Tim 4:14)

And these bishops in turn ordain new bishops to take their place. The Roman Catholic Church, for example, is apostolic because it traces its apostolic lineage from St. Peter, the first bishop of Rome, to the present pope, Pope Benedict XVI. But who ordained Manalo? Who laid hands on him? No one. He ordained himself. Oh, I made a mistake. Protestant pastors ordained him (full story by Emily Jordan). But INC never recognizes the Protestant faith. Mainline Protestants at least believes on the Divinity of Christ, which the INC reject. This itself poses a question on the validity of the Manalo’s ordination. (The validity of the Protestant minister’s apostolic succession is a separate issue.) So effectively, no one ordained Manalo. He ordained himself.

5. Thus, the Iglesia ni Cristo posesses only one mark of the true Church of Christ: it is one, but it is not holy, nor catholic, nor apostolic. Let us not be deceived. Not all those who are named Manny Pacquiao can box like the real Manny Pacquiao. Not all those who calls themselves the Church of Christ or Iglesia ni Cristo is the true Church of Christ. Only the Catholic Church is. The Church of Iglesia ni Cristo is a false church, an Anti-Church. The Christ of Iglesia ni Cristo is an Arian idol, an Anti-Christ. Let us not be deceived.

  1. There is no way the INC is the Church of Jesus Christ. Not one of the Apostles, if they were alive now, can testify that INC is the Church erected by Jesus. NOT ONE.

    1. Just one thing: The original CHURCH which Christ built never apostatized. Therefore all other claims by Manalo's INC Church will not stand strong in people hearing them are gifted with intelligence, knowledge and wisdom.

      Delete
    2. To claim that the Church established by Jesus Christ apostatized would make the Lord a liar. Jesus said: "I will build my Church and the power of the netherworld will not prevail against it" and in other occasion, he said "I will be with you until the end of time." If these statements were true, how can the doctrine of "Church Apostasy" fit in? Well, perhaps, it will fit in Manalo's hallow nutshell. ahehehehehe

  4. that's your illness!!! you always interpret the words of the bible literally... on the bible, God commanded Saul to design his temples and altars with carved angels beside his tabernacle and the ARC OF THE COVENANT., in order to symbolize the holiness of his temple.. now, explain the historical basis of your church.. is your church present when Christ still lives? Explain. if you reject CHRIST as GOD, then, WHY are you using CHRIST'S name on your church an entitled it as IGLECIA NI CRISTO?!!.. who is Christ then?

    1. Alam n'yo ba na ang Iglesia Ni Cristo noong unang siglo ay NATALIKOD dahil sa mga bulaang propeta? At kung sasabihin mo na ang Iglesia Katolika ay ang Iglesiang tinayo ng mga Apostol noon unang siglo, masasabi kong ang IGLESIA KATOLIKA ang IGLESIANG NATALIKOD dahil sa mga maling aral.

      1. Pagsamba sa diyos-diyosan o rebulto. Tunay na ito ang labag sa kaluuban ng Diyos. At kung sasabihin nyo na hindi ninyo sinasamba ang mga rebulto. Sino ang inyon sinasamba? Pwede namang sambahin ang Panginoon kahit wala ang mga rebultong iyan.


      Ang Kawan Ni Cristo noong unang siglo ay natalikod dahil sa maling pangaral ng mga bulaan propeta. At kung ang Kawan Ni Cristo noong unang siglo ay natalikod, nasaan na ang tunay na Kawan/Iglesia na tinatag ng Panginoong HesuKristo?

    1. Felix Manalo is one of the greatest deceivers of the 20th century. His coming was prophesied in the Bible such that many FALSE PROPHETS and FALSE TEACHERS would come to DECEIVE. Many would APOSTATIZE (but not the CHURCH). Felix Manalo apostatized first by leaving the CHURCH of JESUS CHRIST and then led many to his own apostasy.

      For the INC Jesus was a LIAR while Felix Manalo was the one preaching truth. If they (INC) accepts that, then their have drank condemnation to their souls by denying JESUS while making FElix Manalo as their new shepherd as Ventilacion admitted in one of his debates with a Catholic apologists.

      Let's pray for them that they will come back to the TRUE FOLD Jesus had founded.

  7. It is all good that INC claims to be the true church. And to substantiate this claim, it backs up the argument with phrases from the Bible which, to put it mildly, appear to be taken out of context as is not suprising if one does not read the context of particular verses as they appear in the Bible. I hope the members will come to realise that the basis of INC is baseless and stems from verse hopping in the Bible, without fully comprehending the context in which those verses appear. I do however pray that they will examine the following verses below and ask themselves if they genuinely believe that God really sent Felix Manalo as the last messanger. If they have a look for themselves, it is clear that God did not intend that. And to say that God did would be blasphemous. So I hope they will go through the verses as follow and examine for themselves, the teachings that are imparted to them by INC and determine if they are true or not.

  8. In Isa 41:2 , the conqueror from the east that God is proclaming about, whom God will make triumphant and give victory over kings and nations is clearly Cyrus of Persia ( Isa 45:1). He was the one to free the Jews, who were in exile in Babylon, to return to Jerusalem. This is documented in the book of Ezra. Thus, Cyrus was the instrument used by God to free the Jews who were in exile at that time and he did just that as documented in the book of Ezra.

    This alone should prove that the teachings that the man from the east refers to Felix Manalo is baseless and contradictory to God's words.

    Further examination of the verses that supposedly lay credence to Felix Manalo being the "last messanger" of these last days also reveal that the verses have been twisted and taken out of context. Let's look at Isa 46:11 for example which states that God is calling a man to come from the east; and that this man will swoop down like a hawk and accomplish what God has planned. The INC claims that it refers to Felix Manalo. While it can clearly be seen that it refers to Cyrus as already mentioned, reading on to the next two verses (Isa 46 :12-13), one can see that God is referring to saving JERUSALEM. With God clearly indicating this, it is clear that the people being referred to are the Jews. This is the consistent theme of the book of Isaiah, that Isaiah was chosen by God to deliver His message to the people of Israel at that time. Even if one were to say that the future tense is used in Isa 46:11, that is a very shallow argument that again doesn't take into context that as of that time, the Jews had not been freed from Babylon yet. It is a prophecy that Cyrus will be the one to save the people of God at that time, the Jews, from Babylon. This is God's words and God's plan. It is not a single verse that indicates God's plan to have Cyrus save his people. It is also mentioned in Isa 44:28, 45:1, 45:13, 48:14-15.

    Also, the alluding of "ends of the earth" to the last days of earth is also baseless. In Isa 5:26, the Lord gives a signal to call a nation from the ends of the earth. Of course, reading this verse in isolation and combining it with other verses in this book or other books in the Bible could be used to string together a convenient explanation for Felix Manalo's alleged coming as the "last messanger". However, a look at Isa 5:27-30 would clearly indicate that this nation from the "ends of the earth" would "come to roar over Israel as loudly as the sea." That is, this nation from the ends of the earth, is NOT "God's chosen people in the last days" as INC claims but rather, the enemies of Israel who would come to conquer them.

    God chose Cyrus as the man from the east to save his people from Babylon. This is clearly stated in the Bible in the book of Isaiah and documented in the book of Ezra. To take isolated verses and string them together conveniently to distort God's words is blasphemy, as I am sure you would all agree too. Hence, I'm not sure if lack of understanding or blind faith/allegiance is chaining you to this wrong belief.

    I hope you will read the Bible and understand the context of these verses, that Isaiah was an instrument of God to communicate to the people of Israel at that time. And it would be good if you opened your eyes and examine other teachings likewise.

    I mean well and I hope you will choose to believe what God truly intends.
    God bless you.

    1. Arnel, ang PASION ay hindi po DOKTRINA. Ito po ay isa sa mga maraming DEVOTIONAL PRAYERS sa loob ng Iglesia.

      Alam mo ba kung bakit sinabi kong Debosyon lang ito at hindi doktrina? Sapagkat HINDI naman itinuturo sa buong IGLESIA ang pasion. Sa pampangga lang yan. O sa mga karating Maynila. Sa Visayas ay hindi po nila ginagawa ang Pasyon.

      Kung gusto mong malaman ang DOKTRINA ng IGLESIA KATOLIKA ay doon ka sa OFFICIAL. Ang tawag po rito ay The CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH o sa tagalog ay Ang KATESISMO NG IGLESIA KATOLIKA. Ito ay nakikita sa INTERNET, sa PRINT at mabibili sa major bookstores INTERNATIONALLY at printed po in different languages.

      Tandaan mo, ang setting ng iyong question ay sa PINAS lang. Ang IGLESIA KATOLIKA ay hindi lang sa PINAS kundi sa buong mundo... hindi kami tulad ng IGLESIA NI MANALO na central ay Pinas at at kung nakatawid man ito sa ibang bansa ay PINOY pa rin ang laman nito.

      Ang tunay na IGLESIA NI CRISTO ay ang IGLESIA KATOLIKA. Iyan ang pagpapatibay ng INYONG PASUGO.

    1. Ang mga katuruan ng INC ni Manalo ay hango sa MALING INTERPRETASYON ng Banal na Kasulatan at MALING PANG-UNAWA.

      Halos LAHAT KAYONG MGA PROTESTANTE ay nagsasabing "NASA BIBLIA" ang inyong mga katuruan at tanging ang BIBLIA lamang ang inyong kinikilalang AUTHORITY. Pero kayong lahat ay NAGKAKAWATAK-WATAK at hindi NAGKAKAISA sa inyong mga katuruan kaya't hanggang ngayon ay WATAK ang Iglesia Protestante, KASAMA na kayong gma IGLESIA NI MANALO.

      Ang Biblia ba ay aklat ng PAGKAKAWATAK-WATAK? O PAGKAKAISA?

      Ang BIBLIA ba ay aklat na nagbibigay LIWANAG o KADILIMAN/

      Ang Biblia ba ay NAKAKA-AKIT ng TAO o nagwawatak?

      Ang KASAGUTAN ay nasa IGLESIA KATOLIKA!

      Dahil sa LIWANAG ng katuruan ng Iglesia Katolika halos 1/6 ng buong mundo ay NAHALINA rito. At dahil PAGKAKAISA nito ay mayroon siyang SINUSUNOD na LEADER, siyang nangangasiwa na ang mga kaanib nito ay HINDI NAPAPARAYA sa MALING ARAL.

      Kaya't kami ay NAGPUPURI sa DIOS at NAGPAPSALAMAT sapagkat ginagabayan ni HESUS ang KANYANG IGLESIA.

      Anong SINASABI ng MEDIA tungkol sa IGLESIA KATOLIKA?

      Ito ay may halos mahigit kumulang na 2,000 years na history! Saan nila nakuha ang pahayag na ito? Sa kasaysayan!

      Therefore WALANG APOSTASY na nangyari!!! kaya't lalabas na PEKE ang INC ni Manalo kahit sabhin pa nila na galing sa Biblia ang kanilang aral. Di na bago ang mga ganyang mga claims. Ganyan na ganyan din ang sinasabi ng halos may 7,000 different Protestant churches around the world...

      MABUHAY ANG IGLESIA NI CRISTO-- ANG IGLESIA KATOLIKA!

    2. Una po sa lahat kung paanong respeto ng INC sa Iglesia Katolica sna galangin din ntin ang Iglesia ni Cristo, dahil ang paninindigan ng INC ay Iglesia ni Cristo hindi Iglesia ni Manalo, Wala po akong nabalitaang natatag na ang pangalan ay Iglesia ni Manalo.

      Ang tunay pong pagkaka-isa ay iisa ang diwa, Halimbawa ang INC kapag nagbigay ng leksyon sa pag-samba mula sa Pilipinas hangang sa mga bansang natatag nito iisa ang leksyon,

      Sa pagboto nagkaka-isa

      sa puso at isip ng bawat kaanib alam nila kung sino ang susunod na Leader dahil iisa ang diwa ng mga INC, hindi na dumadaan sa botohan gaya ng conclave na hindi iisa ang diwa ng mga namumuno dahil sa kanilang sariling mga opinion kung sino ang dapat mamuno.

      Yan ang katangian ng Iglesia ni Cristo "Nagkaka-isa sa puso at damdamin.

      Ang kasaysayan ng Iglesia ni Cristo lahat nkasulat sa Biblia hindi sa aklat ng kasaysayan ng tao.

      In all your TV programs, and PASUGO, and in Erano Manalo's FUNDAMENTAL BELIEFS of the IGLESIA NI CRISTO were all ANTI-CATHOLIC in nature.

      Lahat po yan OFFICIALLY PUBLISHED by the Iglesia ni Cristo.

      Sample na lang nitong old issued ng inyong OFFICIAL MAGAZINE.

      3- PASUGO Agosto 1962, p. 9:
      “Kaya ang tunay na anti-Cristo, ang mga Papa ng Iglesia Katolika Apostolika Romana. At ang tunay na ampon ng anti-Cristo ay ang mga Katoliko.”

      4- PASUGO Oktubre 1956, p. 1:

  12. Arianism is the Heresy that teaches Jesus is just a man and not Divine he is a human mode of God of Father.. They reject the Trinity and Sacraments.. This teaching was came from Arius a Priest..

    Arius was condemned and labelled as Antichrist by Athanasius..

    Athanasius (c. 293 – 373), writes that Arius of Alexandria is to be associated with the Antichrist, saying, "And ever since [the Council of Nicaea] has Arius's error been reckoned for a heresy more than ordinary, being known as Christ's foe, and harbinger of Antichrist.

    And this teaching of Arius was adopt and modified by Felix Manalo of INC.. Well what is worst is their Doctrines regarding on Cristology (Nature of Christ) and Nature of Christ.. It seems that they adopt Neo-Arianism denying the Divinity of Jesus Christ.. But wala nang hihigit pa sa isang blasphemy when Felix Manalo declared and elevated as Angel and Messenger of Last Days and Christ is just purely Human.. That is a Blasphemy..

    1 John 2:18
    Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that Antichrist cometh, even now there are become many Antichrists: whereby we know that it is the last hour.

    1 John 2:22
    Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son.

    1 John 4:3
    And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and he is now already in the world.

    2 John 1:7
    For many seducers are gone out into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh: this is a seducer and an antichrist.

    Antichrist- The word "antichrist" is made up of two roots: αντί (anti) + Χριστός (Khristos). "Αντί" can mean not only "against" and "opposite of", but also "in place of",[3] "Χριστός", translated "Christ", is Greek for the Hebrew "Messiah". Both literally mean "Anointed One", and refer to Jesus of Nazareth[4] within Christian, Islamic and Messianic Jewish theology.

    These are people who denied Christ is a Messiah and its divinity..
