"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

Iglesia ni Cristo's Fundamental Beliefs: Are they Original?

The Pope with African children during his visit (Photo sourc: Times of Malta)
The Fundamental Beliefs of the Iglesia ni Cristo (fouded by Felix Manalo), COPIED by Felix's son Eraño Manalo from different Christian churches.

The Bible : The words of God are written only in the Bible. The Bible should be the only basis of service to God. This is the truth which will teach man salvation from punishment on Judgment Day. Thus, each member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo should give value to the teachings of God written in the Bible by fulfilling them in his life.The Bible Alone: Originally taught by Martin Luther, John Calvin and other Protestant Reformers. It is called Sola Scriptura however this teaching is not found in the Bible yet Luther et al kept that belief in Jesus Divinity. The INC is not!

Although the look at the Bible as their sole authority but the same Bible DIVIDED them, cannot agree on one thing. The Catholic Church remained One- in-tact!
The true God : The Father Who created all things is the only true God. There are no three persons in one God; thus, reject the belief in the Trinity.Christians believed there is ONE true GOD in Three Divine Persons or the Trinity.  Islam taught Tauheed (Oneness of God) which Mohammad founded in 622 AD and directly denies any divinity of Christ.  INC beliefs stemmed from Arius (ca. AD 250–336 AD). But modern adherents directly rejecting the doctrine of the Trinity came from Calvinism, Anabaptism, Adventism, Wesleyanism, Lutheranism, etc. and it's called Unitarianism.INC is never unique in this claim.
The true religion : The belief that all churches belong to God is false. Christ founded only one true Church - the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo). Therefore, we value the Church because herein are we able to do the kind of service acceptable to God and through which we shall be saved.INC Manalo is not unique in this claim.  All religions and newly founded churches in fact claimed to be the "true religions" however only one Church consistently claims historicity of its origins- the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church.

Muslims also believe Islam is the only "true religion". However history proves that Islam was founded by its prophet Mohammad between 622 AD until his death on June 8, 632 AD.

Iglesia ni Cristo was recently founded in July 27-, 1914 AD. It's forthcoming Centennial confirms that fact. Not even the doctrine of "Total Apostacy" to accommodate their "Last Messenger" doctrine was originally. Mormonism founded by Joseph Smith was the first to claim that "heavenly calling" of prophethood. But Islam's prophet claimed to be the "Last Prophet (Messenger)" known by a billion people.
The Church of Christ : The Church of Christ is the Church that Jesus will save (Acts 20:28 Lamsa) because He made this Church His body and heads it Himself - before God, the Church and Christ are one new man (Eph.2:15 NKJV; Col.1:18 NKJV). This is the reason why Christ is able to answer for the sins of His Church without violating God's law, that whoever commits a sin, the same must die for that sin (Dt.24:16). Hence, false is the belief that salvation can be attained by means of faith in Christ alone even without membership in the Church of Christ. The Church is necessary not because it saves but because it is the entity that Christ will save (Eph.5:23 TEV).INC of Manalo is not unique in using this name.  There are other numerous churches which claim to be "Church of Christ" too (Iglesia ni Cristo in Tagalog). And most of them use Romans 16:16 as their basis (only INC of Manalo additionally uses the Lamsa Translation for Acts 20:28. Lamsa is a member of the Assyrian Church, an offshoot church of Nestoriansm). However, upon close scrutiny of Romans 16:16 it only proves that the ROMAN CHURCH is the church that is greeted by all the churches in the world. It has nothing to do with the "Iglesia ni Cristo".  Much to their frustrations, nowhere in the Bible we can find Jesus commanding his apostles to name a church after him nor he commanded them to register it as a Corporation Sole. Such that when we say "Christ's Church" or "Church of Jesus" would no longer be identified with the biblical Church of Christ in the understanding of the Iglesia ni Cristo.

According to its registration the church' name should be the "Iglesia ni Kristo" (Church of Christ), nowhere we read Jesus commanding his disciples a church to be named in exclusively in Tagalog "Iglesia ni Kristo" or "Iglesia ni Cristo".
History of the church built by Christ in the first century : The Church built by Christ during the first century was apostatized (Acts 20:29). This was led away by false prophets which arose in the Church after the time of the Apostles (Mt.24:11 RSV), and those who remained firm in the faith were slain by ravenous wolves (Mt.7:15). The fulfillment of the prophesied false teachers who will lead the Church away are the Catholic priests. They introduced false teachings (1 Tim.4:1,3) into the Church until the Church became the Catholic Church - a church essentially different from the Church of Christ as described in the Bible.Secular history confirms that the Catholic Church is the historical Church founded by Jesus Christ (read History of the Catholic Church). Looking closely at the Timeline of Christianity we find a deafening silence about  "Total Apostasy" as it was being re-taught by the INC of Manalo.  There has been no recorded universal "TOTAL APOSTASY" in the Church but there were recorded apostasy  by certain individuals FROM the Church. INC's Total Apostasy directly contradicts the Bible when Jesus said "the gates of hell shall (future tense) not prevail (Mt. 16:18) against his Church.

In fact, the INC's official magazine confirms that there was NO Total Apostasy and that the Catholic Church is STILL the true Church.:

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."

PASUGO, Abril 1966, p. 46:

“Ang totoo hanggang sa kasalukuyan ay patuloy na ginagawa ni Satanas ang pagpapasok ng mga maling aral sa Iglesia Katolika na sa pasimula'y siyang Iglesia ni Cristo. Sadyang matalino at tuso ang diablo. Hindi niya ginawang biglaan ang pagtalikod sa Iglesiang itinayo ni Cristo noong unang siglo."

The prophesy about the coming of Manalo is being fulfilled in 2 John 1:7

"Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh; such is the deceitful one and the antichrist."

In Philippians 2:2-8 says JESUS is in the FORM of GOD, he came in human likeness, found human in appearance.. yet he is God. (read Deceivers of Faith).

Felix Manalo denied Jesus God coming in the flesh, found human in appearance. Such man is the ANTI-CHRIST, the DECEIVER!

These teachings were originally taught by the Seventh-Day Adventists where Felix was once a full-fledged minister.  He copied and incorporated them in his newly founded church.
Proofs that the apostasy of the first century Church of Christ took place : The apostasy of the Catholic Church from the Church established by Christ in the first century took place with their turning away from the teachings of God taught by Christ and His Apostles (Worship of Images, Mass, Popes and Priests as vicars or successors of Christ, Mediator Saints, Purgatory). Therefore, the apostasy takes place whenever there is a teaching of God the Catholic Church violates. In view of this, all the doctrines and practices of the Catholic Church should be rejected. INC of Manalo is not unique in this claim.  The Total Apostasy doctrine of Manalo was copied from the Mormons which came 94 years before Manalo founded his own church.

True, there has been apostasy who LEFT the fold: Martin Luther is one example and Felix Manalo is another thus fulfilling Biblical prophesies.

People LEFT the Church! NOT the Church leaving the people!

Most of their objections against the Church were not new. Objections against Marian Doctrines, Veneration (dulia) of Saints (Latria), Purgatory, were all copied from mainline Protestantism doctrines.
The origin of other churches : We should not be surprised at the number of churches today that are not of Christ. It is not Christ who established them but the enemy or the devil (Mt.13:24-30,36-39 NKJV). These churches that do not belong to Christ are the Catholic Church and her offsprings, the various Protestant denominations and sects. Only one Church belongs to Christ, the Church of Christ. Including Manalo's church established by the enemy of Christ.Their origin was from FELIX MANALO according to the pages of history.

Felix Manalo having denied Jesus-God coming in the flesh found human in appearance (Phil. 2:5-8) is condemned by the Bible. Such a man is a deceitful and the anti-Christ.

2 John 1:7 "Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh; such is the deceitful one and the antichrist."

The Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) is not for Christ. It's Manalo's and therefore it's FAKE.

PASUGO Mayo 1968, p. 7:
“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!"

The same official magazine says INC of Manalo is never for God and Christ but for Manalo:

PASUGO Nobyembre 1940, p. 23:
“Iisa lamang ang tanging makapagtatayo ng Iglesiang magiging dapat sa Dios. Kung sino-- ang ating Panginoong Jesu-Cristo lamang! Sino mang tao-- maging marunong o mangmang, maging dakila o hamak-- ay walang karapatang magtayo ng Iglesia"

PASUGO Mayo 1968, p. 7:
“Ang tunay na INK ay iisa lamang. Ito ang Iglesiyang itinayo ni Cristo. Kung mayroon mang nagsisibangon ngayong mga Iglesia at sasabihing sila man ay Iglesia ni Cristo rin, ang mga ito ay hindi tunay na Iglesia ni Cristo kundi huwad lamang."

As they DENOUNCED Protestants and Catholics, FELIX MANALO was ordained by Protestant Ministers he considered agents of Satan.

Therefore Felix Manalo was ordained by Satan.
Not by faith only : Many Protestant groups uphold the belief that faith alone in Christ is sufficient for salvation. They have excluded other conditions such as baptism (Mt.16:15-16), Church Membership (Jn.10:9,Acts 2:47, 20:28 Lamsa), suffering for Christ's sake (Phil.1:29), works (Js.2:14,17,20), preaching by the messenger of God (Acts 16:32-33), remaining in the true church (Jn.15:5-6), holding firm and obey Gospel (1 Cor.15:1-2 NIV), enduring & remaining till end (Mt.24:13). Their faith-alone concept of salvation is in direct conflict with the Bible where we can find pronouncements that man is not justified by faith only (Js.2:24). Opposition against Sola Fide is not originally INC thing. Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura were intelligently proven to be un-biblical by the Church- not the INC.  INC conveniently copied them from the Catholic Church.

Between INC opposition against "Sola Fide", the Catholic Church has been gifted with much intelligence by her founder, Jesus Christ the Lord. Read sample argument here
One organized church : One should not deny the necessity of one organized church as the Church of Christ.They patterned their church government to the most organized church in the world: The Catholic Church (read Church Hierarchy). Making the Manalos as their little "popes", almost infallible. That everything Eduardo Manalo (the present pope) says should be followed strictly.
The Church of Christ in the Philippines : The Church of Christ which emerged in the Philippines (a country in the Far East) in these last days was established by virtue of the fulfillment of the prophecies of God (Isa.43:5 Moffatt) and of Christ (Jn.10:16;Acts 20:28 Lamsa). This is the third group (Acts 2:39) of people in the Church established by Christ. This arose in these last days after the apostasy of the Church built by Christ in the first century as a result of the work done by false prophets. Even the spread of this Church in the Far West (Isa.43:4-6;59:19 NKJV) is a fulfillment of God's prophecy written in the Bible. There was NO prophesy about having to find ANOTHER "Church of Christ".  There is ONLY ONE CHURCH and this Church was prophesied by Jesus (her founder) "hell SHALL NOT prevail." (Mt. 16:16-18)

If Felix Manalo must fulfill biblical prophesies it is:

Galatians 1:8
But even if we or an angel (MESSENGERS) from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned! (NIV)

Mt. 7:15
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. (Felix Manalo was found guilty of immorality - a man of low morals - God's Last Messenger).

2 John 1:7
Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

Felix Manalo DENIED JESUS-GOD coming in the flesh. He is the anti-Christ and the deceiver!

Felix Manalo indeed FULFILLED biblica prophesies.
Brother Felix Y. Manalo - God's Messenger in the last days : The messenger of God (Rom.10:15 NKJV) in these last days (Isa.43:6) is Brother Felix Y. Manalo (Rev.7:2-3). It was not he who built the Church of Christ but it was Christ Himself (Mt.16:18) by virtue of the fulfillment of the prophesy (Jn.10:16). Brother Felix Manalo was only utilized by God as His instrument to preach the pure Gospel of salvation in these last days. His authority as God's messenger is clearly stated by various prophecies in Scriptures (Is.41:9-10; Is.46:11-13; Rev.7:2-3). Hence, it behooves man to have faith in the commissioning of Brother Felix Y. Manalo. Copied from Mormonism Joseph Smith as "God's Last Prophet".  "Brother" Felix Manalo is NEITHER a "messenger" nor have been appointed by God. No matter what they say, their own registration proves that the INC was founded by him in 1914:

It's own official magazine confirmed that fact too:

PASUGO Agosto-Setyembre 1964, p. 5
“Kailan napatala sa Pamahalaan o narehistro ang INK sa Pilipinas? Noong Hulyo 27, 1914. Tunay nga na sinasabi sa rehistro na si Kapatid na F. Manalo ang nagtatag ng INK."

Felix Manalo is the ANTI-CHRIST! for DENYING Jesus-God (Phil 2:3-8) coming in the flesh found human in appearance.

2 John 1:7
Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh; such is the deceitful one and the antichrist.
The promise for those who endure persecution : Persecutions cannot be avoided because overcoming it serves as basis for inheriting the kingdom of heaven (Mt.5:10-12). Thus whatever kind or extent of persecution a member of the Church of Christ may face, he should not falter or withdraw. He should instead pray to God for assistance in order to overcome religious persecutions. PASUGO (November 1954, p. 2, 1) said, a persecuted church confirms it's truthfulness!

But which among the many churches today is MOST persecuted? It's the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church is persecuted by kingdoms, governments, agnostics, non-Christians, right-wings, left wings, Protestants, INC, governments, secularism, consumerism, communism, moralists etc...

Defending the Church against the errors of Manalo IS NOT persecution! Defending Christ and His Church is not persecution!

In fact, this CHURCH is the Catholic Church which was persecuted from the first century to this day.

That's the reason the CHURCH is still the same today just as PASUGO Mayo 1968, p. 5 said:

"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."
Membership in the Church of Christ : The proper way of joining the Church of Christ is that which is done because of faith (Rom.5:2) in God and in Christ (Jn.14:1-2) as well as the recognition and acceptance of the Church and of God's commissioning of His messenger in these last days (Jn.6:29). If the motive for joining the Church of Christ is pure and proper, the man who joins the Church would be able to perform all the commandments and Church disciplines, the performance of which proves that he is a true member of the Church of Christ. He does not easily discouraged and neither does he drew back. Instead, he remains firm in his election.Since FELIX MANALO was NEVER commissioned by God and that there was NO TOTAL APOSTASY, therefore the INC is FAKE and Felix Manalo is a FAKE messenger too.  Having "membership" to a FAKE CHURCH is tantamount to lose your salvation.

The original Church of Jesus Christ is not confined in a man-made church founded for him and for his family registered in Tagalog only.

Salvation comes through Jesus Christ and following his teachings through HIS CHURCH the "Pillar and Bulwark of TRUTH" (1 Tim 3:15)
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)INC has "Two-Lords" theory which is un-biblical.  Worship is ONLY rendered to God not to a man. Therefore if they encourage their members to worship Jesus, it's because they too recognize HIS DIVINITY that he should be worshipped!  However they command their members to "worship" Jesus -a MAN.

The very reason why the Bible is consistent is saying Jesus is to be worshipped is becaue HE IS GOD!

INC chose Phil. 2:9-11 but simply ignored Phil. 2:5-8 for fear in these verses, it confirms JESUS in the FORM of GOD.. coming in human likeness... found human in appearance...  Read Iglesia ni Cristo's Lies and Deceit

Rather we should CONDEMN Felix Manalo for DENYING Christ God who has come in the flesh:

2 John 1:7
Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ (GOD) as coming in the flesh; such is the deceitful one and the antichrist.

The Lord Jesus Christ, Part II : The clear distinctions of Christ from God are proofs that the true God is not Christ. Our Lord Jesus Christ possesses attributes surpassing the ordinary man but this does not mean that He is God. God has attributes which we do not find in Christ. If Christ can do wonders such as miracles, all these are done by God through Him as God's instrument. On His own powers alone, Christ cannot do anything. Christ Himself states, "I can of my own do nothing."Jesus is true MAN and true GOD! It does not necessarily mean that when he said "I am a man" he denied his very nature as God "coming in the flesh".

INC does not know Jesus well. That's because they are FAKE church.

2 John 1:7
Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ (GOD) as coming in the flesh; such is the deceitful one and the antichrist.

Jesus is simply a GOD who was made FLESH (John 1:1-10)
The Lord Jesus Christ, Part III : Teachers of the "Christ is God" doctrine also use the Bible. But we should not allow ourselves to be deceived by them because we cannot read any text in the Bible where Christ says He is the true God. If that is the case, why do they have biblical texts to prove their contentions? Those biblical texts have been given erroneous interpretations (Jn.1:1,14; Isa.9:6) or wrong meanings (1 Jn.5:20) or even based on verses wrongly translated (Rom.9:5).
2 John 1:7
Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ (GOD) as coming in the flesh; such is the deceitful one and the antichrist.

 Read Iglesia ni Cristo's Lies and Deceit
Leading a new life : It is not enough for man to join or become a member of the Church of Christ to be saved. He should lead a new life, too. Members who lead a new life are truly of Christ and of God. Thus, all sinful ways should be renounced and he should live by the teachings he has received.All religions teaches 'good'. This is not unique to the INC. However many INC do not reflect the "Love Commandments" of God.  Comments coming from its members proved them otherwise. Their blogs are full of bigotry, hatred and anti-Catholic agenda. Such that one member has blog solely dedicated to RETRIBUTION or RETALIATION (RESBAK.com) which is un-Christian and un-biblical. That is their new life, to retaliate!
Worship services : Each member of the Church of Christ believes that constant attendance in worship services is one of his obligations. Great blessings accrue to those who constantly attend worship services while great sins are committed by those who disregard this responsibility.According to INC in a Nutshell, the INC worship is for money. Their services comes with different collection of money. (Read IGLESIA NI CRISTO: Why A Multi-Million Sect is Without a Website?)
Our voluntary contribution : The Church of Christ believes that it is God who gave the command to contribute and give thanksgiving offerings to support the needs of the Church. To fulfill these obligations is to lay up a good foundation for the attainment of eternal life.According to INC in a Nutshell, and average yearly amount that a single INC member submits to Erano Manalo (now Eduardo) to the Philippines is $3,681.

Not much, right?

But translating that figure to peso (multiplied with the current exchange rate of 48.4 per US dollar), it would sore up to 178,160.40 pesos—a huge amount for an ordinary wage earner.

But this is just the estimated amount from a single member.

The breakdown?
Worship service offerings ($5.00x52x2)....$ 520.00

Local offerings ($10.00x40)............... 400.00

District offerings ($10.00x12)............ 120.00

Thanksgiving deposits ($25.00x49)........ 1,225.00

Supplemental Thanksgivings............... 500.00

Anniversary offerings.................... 700.00

God's Message offerings ($2.50x2x12)..... 60.00

EGM offerings ($3.00x52)................. 156.00

TOTAL $3,681.00 (roughly 153,000.00 Pesos)
That is their "voluntary contribution" plus contributions that are not voluntary. MANALO is really a MILLIONAIRE preacher! There's no doubt about it!
he brotherhood : The Church of Christ believes that it is the will of God for us to love one another as true brothers and sisters. Hence, if anyone has sinned against us, we should forgive him and we should reconcile with those who are mad at us.That's why the INC of Manalo have housing projects EXCLUSIVE to wealthy member. They unite and support even their members do evil things. Felix Manalo raped women of his church but was never condemned. That is "brotherhood" making them more of a CULT than a "church".
Other prohibitions : The members of the Church of Christ believe that it is God who forbids the eating of blood and prohibits marriage with those of other faiths. Elopement is an act of disrespect for parents and this is a sin in the eyes of God."It is not what enters one’s mouth that defiles that person; but what comes out of the mouth is what defiles one.” -Mt. 15:11

“What God has made clean, you are not to call profane.”
Acts 10:15
On baptism : The Church of Christ believes that baptism is necessary for one to become a disciple of Christ and for the attainment of eternal salvation. But this should be done in accordance with the teachings of the Bible."Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit" -Mt. 28:19  (TRINITY - Three in ONE God)!

Felix Manalo was NEVER baptized in his church. Therefore he did not attain 'salvation'! They likened him to St. John the Baptist. But Felix Manalo was baptized in the Catholic CHURCH and gave him the name "Felix"-- a name given not in the INC which Felix used until his death-- thus sealing his life with his Catholic baptism.
Missionary work and praying : The Church of Christ believes that each member should do missionary work or share his faith with others. Each one should learn how to pray to God so that he would not weaken in faith and thus be able to resist temptations.INC do not have missionaries outside locations already Christianized.  They infested our Christian communities with Overseas Filipino Workers (turned 'missionaries'). INC "missionaries" harvest what they did not plant; cock what they did not harvest and eat what they did not sweat out. They use Catholic (and Protestant copied Bibles) yet they bite our hands. They are useless PARASITES!
The church administration : Each member should submit to the Administration placed by God in the Church by means of total agreement with the teachings and rules observed in the Church of Christ.The idea of "church administration' was taken directly from Catholic and Protestant administration which Felix Manalo was very much aware while he was members of different Protestant churches.  Thus in Manalo's church, they are enjoying total obedience to their little "pope" following everything he says 'infallibly" 
Unity : The Church of Christ believes that unity is God's teaching and that division within the Church is an evil thing. This unity is implemented by the Church of Christ not only during election time but also in all its works in the service of God."Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.' - Mt. 12:25 (even hell is united).

Unity according to the understanding of Manalo's church is SAMENESS. The same HEADS without body, hands, fingers, eyes..

But the UNITY in the CHURCH of JESUS is like a LIVING BODY-- having eyes, nose, mouth, head, legs, fingers, hands, heart etc, FUNCTION DIFFERENTLY but ACTING in ONE BODY.

The CHURCH of JESUS is composed of different cultures, language, rites, traditions, but having THE SAME belief, having ONE baptism, ONE faith, ONE Lord (not two), ONE God! (Eph. 4:5)
Judgment Day : The Church of Christ believes that God has determined the Day of Judgment which will take place on the second coming of Christ. This is the great day when the Church of Christ will receive the reward promised by God -- the everlasting home for God's chosen people.Get away from these false prophets:

2 John 1:7
Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh; such is the deceitful one and the antichrist.



    1. Proudly CATHOLIC FOREVER!

ROMANIST is not the original church,Roman Catholic was started by emperor Augustine of Rome in 3rd century,thats why your religion is called "Roman" Catholic,the rest of the stories and claims are all lies and false teachings,you are anti-Christ as you worship Mary,Angels and Saints,all false teachings,be careful,hell is eternal and purgutory another false teaching.Look at INDULGENCE,how many centuries RC believe in that teaching and now your pope say it is a wrong teachings,how many RC are already in HELL because of this false teaching of Indulgences.How about the other false teachings,many are on the road to the big barbecue pit,come out of her,they are many churches with correct teachings.

    1. Dear Gregory Tan,

      Nakakaawa ka. Nangopya ka nga nga lang eh mali pa. WALA pong "Emperor Augustine" sa kasaysayan ng mundo. Baka ang ibig mong sabihin ay si Emperor Constantine (I) or mas kilala sa pangalang "the Great".

      Di bale MAGKATUNOG naman di ba? Tulad ng "iglesia ni Cristo" at "Iglesia ni Cristo" ay MAGKATUNOG din. Mahilig kayo sa mga magkakatunog pero kung papansinin niyo ay MAGKAKAIBA naman talaga.

      Pakisabi sa mga bayarang Ministro niyo na mag-research naman po ng maayos. Pakisabi na wala pong Augustine na emperor. At alam kong malulungkot ka sapagkat si Emperor Augustine este Emperor Constantine I po ay NAGING KATOLIKO at never pong naging kaanib ng INC ni Manalo? (Read more here

      Bakit kamo? Eh sapagkat noong 312AD eh wala pang Felix Manalong isinilang at lalong wala pang Biblia at lalong wala pang umuusbong na KOKOPYA ng pangalan ng Santa Iglesia.

      At sa kaalaman po ng mga kaanib mong TALIWAS sa katotohana at SALAT sa turong tama, ang salitang ROMANIST po ay SUMULPOT lamang sa English language mula sa mga taga-sunod ni King Henry VIII. Si Haring Henry po ay hari ng Englatera na umalis sa pagka-Katoliko dahilan lamang sa TAWAG NG LAMAN. Gusto niya ng deborsiyo at pakasalan si Anne Boleyn pero di pumayag ang Papa kaya umalis siya sa pagka-Katoliko at marami siyang pinapatay ng mga Katoliko at dineclare niya na siya na ang HEAD OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND.

      Lahat dahil sa tawag ng laman.

      Dahil SALAT NA SALAT ka sa totoong kasaysayan kaya mas PINILI mo pa si Haring Henry VIII na malibog kaysa kay Emperor Constantine na naging mabuting emperor. Isang hari na tumaliwas at isang Emperor na tumalima.

      Di bale, alam na alam naman sa kasaysayan ng INC ni Manalo na ang kanyang TAGAPAGTATAG na si FELIX MANALO ay kilala sa pagiging HAYOK sa laman tulad ni Haring Henry VIII. Magkatulad na magkatulad ang kanilang hilig kaya't hindi na po bago sa amin kung bakit mas pinili niyo pa si Haring Henry kaysa kay Emperor Constantine.

      Pangatlo, mahigit-kumulang na 1,500 years po namuhay ang IGLESIA KATOLIKA at ng kanyang mga turo ngunit KAHIT isa sa kanila ay wala kang masusumpungan na "DINIDIOS" si MARIA. Sumulpot laman ang mga paratang na iyan noong 16th Century at kinopya ng mga MANALISTAS 414 years later.

      Kaya't masama man ang loob mo pero mahigit 2,000 YEARS na po itong nasagot! Kulang sa iyo ang MAGBASA para naman sulit ang talinong binigay sa iyo ng Dios.

      INDULGENCE? Baka naman mali-mali na naman ang nakarating sa iyo kaya't himutok mo ay ganon ganon na lamang. Tutal SALA ka na sa una pa, sure ko SALA rin ang alam mo tungkol sa INDULGENCE hehehe.

      At ang panghuli, BAKIT ALAM mong maraming mga Katoliko ang nasa HELL? Aha alam ko na. Si FELIX MANALO kasi ay nauna na roon. Siya ang ama ng kasinungalingan at pandaraya kaya't kung barbeque lang ang pag-uusapan, naron na po ang inyong PEKENG SUGO.

      At kung gusto niyo ng CORRECT TEACHINGS, doon lang po tayo sa TURONG LANTAD at hindi TURONG NAKATAGO SA CENTRAL.

  5. Sad to say that INC member are still in trance and delusional about their belief that christ is only human but manalo is divine what a hoax .Is the INC minister studied the Bible or just merely conniving with their founder Mr felix Manalo a Messenger of the demon himself ........I pity on your souls brethren

    1. I doubt if any INC Minister do understand the Holy Scriptures. First, they do not have the intellectual tool to understand it. Secondly, none of their Ministers is a Bible Scholar-- N.O.N.E.

      Finally, their own "Last Sugo" hardly knew English, much more ancient languages such as Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin and/or Greek. He even registered his church as INK (Iglesia Ni Kristo) but later was changed to INC (Iglesia Ni Cristo). Then followed by his son ERAÑO G. MANALO then the greedy grandsom EDUARDO V. MANALO (ang Iglesiang MINAMANA!).

      So, yes junix89 you are right in your observation. INC founder, siblings, heirs, ministers, followers-- NONE of them understands well of the Scripture-- even it's origin, they're not even well informed of the Bible's history!
