"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's PANDOKTRINA: Anti-Catholic Doctrine of Manalo's Church


Just like hundreds of Catholics, Iglesia Ni Cristo attracted me too, with its uniformity and discipline. Their missionary zeal and hospitality shown to visitors in their churches and locals are praiseworthy! Magnificent churches, which are constructed imitating Catholic Cathedrals of medieval gothic art, also capture our immediate attention. But we were shocked when the minister began to teach us their ‘Fundamental Doctrines’ from a secret but official book called ‘Pandoktrina’. There is a ‘litany of accusations’ in that book against the Catholic faith and their ministers are compelled to teach this to all new ‘converts’ as fundamental lessons and basic teachings of INC! Filled with hatred against the Catholic Church, each and every lesson in the ‘Fundamental Doctrines’ exposes the fundamental character of that religion and the unethical hostility and poverty of spirituality of the one who created it! Even their ministers are ashamed to give its copy to others, as its arguments and criticisms  against Catholics are substandard and mean which can be easily refuted and proven baseless. This book is widely used by ‘Iglesia Ni Cristo’ as a guide to attack the Catholic faith and it gives all tricks and guidelines, how to make a Catholic, an anti-Catholic! (Ref.: Pandoktrina, Serie 1976-77)

Anointed by satanic anger, Pandoktrina bursts out: ‘The Catholic Church is not the true Church.’ ‘The Catholic Church is not from Christ, not of God’ (Lecsion 5, pg 9). ‘There is no salvation in the Catholic Church.’ ‘Convert Catholic people; Turn back from Catholic Church.’ ‘The devil’s lessons are there in the Catholic Church.’ ‘Priests of the Catholic Church are compared to false prophets who wear sheep-like clothing but they are ferocious wolves.’ ‘Take away all the pictures, images, and crosses (pg. 14). Don’t attend Mass, and don’t receive communion, etc…’ The creator of this poisonous work, gives the impression that more than immorality, drugs, prostitution and sin in this world, Catholic Church is the first enemy to be attacked! See, how crookedly Satan is using people to divert the attention from priorities to create his own kingdom!

The 12 lessons of this book, against the Holy Catholic Church, are used to confuse the indoctrinee, who sits in front of the minister, attracted by advertisements of salvation in the TV shows of INC, thirsting to hear the word of God! To make him a victim of these falsehoods, the minister uses different Bible translations! There will be many ‘bibles’ in the table of a minister which are to be changed cunningly, one after another, to get favorable words and interpretations, just for defending the claims of this Pandoktrina! It creates an impression in the indoctrinee that the minister is quoting everything from the Bible! Thus ‘Pandoktrina’ becomes the master, and different bibles, its servants! To make things safe, some Catholic writer’s books will also be quoted out of context! (Those books are not given for further reading; if so, the indoctrinee will become a better Catholic!) When the minister becomes successful in injecting this ‘poison of hatred’ in the mind of the indoctrinee, he becomes worthy to be a member of INC, and taken for baptism. The minister, who is successfully confusing more number of Catholics, gets the title with recognition: ‘The Most Fruitful Minister!’ Thousands of Filipino Catholics are already trapped in this deception!

Most of their converts are nominal Catholics, the rural poor, illiterate and gullible, who does not know much about their faith to defend it. (Ref.: Quo Vadis by Ignacio B.Camello, Imprimatur: Cardinal Sin, 1987, pg. 38)

The Bible warns: “…You are mistaken, not understanding the scriptures, or the power of God.” (Mat. 22:29)

How Felix Manalo died in April 12, 1963 Year of the Lord

Judas Iscariot who betrayed the LORD JESUS with a kiss.
Before that, do you know how JUDAS SCARIOT who betrayed the Lord died?

According to Acts 1:18, Judas died, his body burst, all his intestines spilled out.

He bought a parcel of land with the wages of his iniquity, and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle, and all his insides spilled out...

Now, here is how FELIX MANALO, the INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserve church's founder died, taken from their official magazine called PASUGO May-June Issue by Isabelo T. Crisostomo (Thanks to Pasugo 1914 Blog)

It was only after many years later, in February 1963, that Manalo fell gravely ill. He was rushed to St. Luke’s hospital in Quezon City where doctors decided to remove immediately "an intestinal obstruction". Manalo rejected the surgery, saying, "Doctors can cure only those who are not yet to die, not those whose time has come." By March 21, 1963, his incapacitation was total and he was transferred to Veterans Memorial Hospital. Doctors operated on him but failed to give him relief from pain. On April 2, the doctors worked on Manalo again to sew back part of his intestines which had burst and hemorrhaged. On April 11, they performed a third surgery on him. It proved to be the last.

Coincidence?

Here's what happened to King Jehoram, the wicked King during the time of the Prophet Elijah from 2 Chronicles 21:15-19:

You shall have severe pains from a disease in your bowels, which will fall out because of the disease, day after day.”

Then the LORD stirred up against Jehoram the animosity of the Philistines and of the Arabians who were neighbors of the Ethiopians. They came up against Judah, breached it, and carried away all the wealth found in the king’s house, along with his sons and his wives. He was left with only one son, Jehoahaz, his youngest.

After these events, the LORD afflicted him with a disease of the bowels for which there was no cure. Some time later, after a period of two years had elapsed, his bowels fell out because of the disease and he died in great pain. His people did not make a fire for him as they had for his ancestors...

Coincidence?

Figure it out why God allowed Felix Manalo's intestines to BURST OUT!

Bro. Alex Jones says first Century Christians center their worship in the EUCHARIST and not in great sermons or the Scriptures! READ HIS LIPS!

INC adherents make up 2.3 percent of the population, the Philippine Demographic Profile 2012 shows. But that small base is parlayed into political clout by bloc voting. Between 68 and 84 percent of INC members vote for candidates handpicked by its leaders, ABS-CBN surveys reveal.

Baluktot daw na aral-Katoliko? Sapagkat BINALUKTOT ito ng mga pekeng mangangaral!

Another comment from an irate member of the INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved Church of Manalo taken from our earlier post at Iglesia ni Cristo member deceived about Romans 16:16 .

Wake..Up!!Feb 20, 2012 05:19 AM

Basahin mo po kaya ang GAWA 20:28 (Lamsa Translation) ng magising kayong mga KAtoliko.....Eto pa nakalagay sa biblia na bawal kumain ng dugo bakit kayo kumakain??
nakasulat ba sa Bibliya na ang kaarawan ni Cristo ay DEC. 25 gaya ng aral nio...???Kung hindi mo po alam aral po yan ng pagano...kaya pagano po pla kayo.....??
Ilang beses na na pinatunayan ng panginoong Hesus na siya ay tao,bakit itinituro ng katoliko na si Cristo ay Dios..???
sa biblya binigyan ni Cristo ang lahat ng apostle ng tinapay na walang libadura at katas ng ubas....ehh bakit ang pari nio lamang ang umiinom ng kumbaga katas ng ubas sa tuwing magcocomunion kayo...???
rosaryo....may saligan ba sa Bibliya.(wala)...
ipinagbabawal ng ang pagsamba sa mga Diyos diyusan at sa mga larawang inanyuan..ehh bakit may mga rebulto kayong sinasamba...MArami pa po ang kasinungalingang aral ang itinuturo ng simbahang katoliko..SANA'Y MAGISING NA PO KAYO,HUWAG NG MAGBULAG BULAGAN PA NI MAGBINGIBINGIHAN ...PURO BALUKTOT NA MGA ARAL NAMAN ANG INYONG IPINAGTATANGGOL...!!!!PAGPALAIN NAWA ANG BUONG IGLESIA NI CRISTO...PURIHIN ANG AMA,ANG NAG-ISANG DIYOS NA NASA LANGIT.

Ginoong Wake..Up!Sigurado kong tulog na tulog ka sa tanghaling tapat.

Hayaan mong gisingin ka ng KATOTOHANANG nasa IGLESIA KATOLIKA ang Banal na Iglesia ng DIOS.
Basahin mo po kaya ang GAWA 20:28 (Lamsa Translation) ng magising kayong mga KAtoliko.....Eto pa nakalagay sa biblia na bawal kumain ng dugo bakit kayo kumakain??

Bakit kaya ang INCorporated Church ay tanging Gawa 20:28 LAMANG ang kiko-quote nila sa Lamsa Translation?

Idilat niyo ang inyong mga mata at makikita niyo kung bakit tanging GAWA 20:28 LAMANG ang kanilang tanging PABORITO sa Lamsa.

George Lamsa
Ang Lamsa Translation ay gawa ng isang 'dalubhasa' raw sa salitang Hebreo at dahil siya raw ay tunay na Palestinong Aramaica ay alam na alam daw niya ang kahulugan ng Biblia ayon sa"kultura" raw ng mga Palestinong Aramaica.

Halos unanimous, ang mga Biblical Scholars ay hindi tanggap ang Lamsa Translation sapagkat halos binaboy nito ang orihinal na texto ng Biblia.

Si George Lamsa ay isang TAGASUNOD ni NESTOR, isang HERETICONG tagapangaral ng ibang ebanghelyo.

Siya at ng kanyang mga maling aral ay DINEKLARANG HERETICAL noong Unang Konsilyo ng Ephesus noong 431 at ng Konsilyo ng Chalcedon noong 451.

Libong taon bago ITATAG ni FELIX MANALO ang kanyang Iglesia.

Ano kasi ang nasa Acts 20:28 (Lamsa)?
Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood.
At kung isasalin nila sa TAGALOG ay maririnig natin ang KATUNOG na gusto nilang palabasin-- "iglesia ni Cristo..."

Kita niyo?

Pero ano ang sinasabi ng mga ibang salin ng Biblia na siya ring ginagamit ng mga INCorporated Church ministers? Narito ang galing sa NAB Acts 20:28:
Keep watch over yourselves and over the whole flock of which the holy Spirit has appointed you overseers,* in which you tend the church of God that he acquired with his own blood.
Bakit "church of Christ" kay Lamsa samantalang "church of God" naman sa ibang salin?

Sapagkat si George ay hindi naniniwalang DIOS si CRISTO.  Doktrinang KINOPYA ng mga MANALISTAS na sa buong akala nila ay ORIGINAL na nalaman ni FELIX sa kanyang doktrina!

Tungkol sa pagkain ng dugo, nasagot ko na 'yan dito sa Pagkain ng Dugo, bawal ba?

nakasulat ba sa Bibliya na ang kaarawan ni Cristo ay DEC. 25 gaya ng aral nio...???Kung hindi mo po alam aral po yan ng pagano...kaya pagano po pla kayo.....??

Nakasulat ba sa Biblia na IPAGDIWANG ang JULY 27?

Nakakatuwa naman ang mga pinagsasabi mo. Mga IPOKRITO!

Hindi ARAW ang aming pinagdiriwang kundi ang KAGANAPAN sa araw na iyon.

At sinong walang-modo namang tao ang nagsabi sa iyo na nasa Biblia ang December 25? Kahit sa aming opisyal na katuruan HINDI NAMIN sinasabi roon na "nasa Biblia" ang December 25.

Pero SINASABI ng Biblia na may "SANGGOL na ipapanganak sa atin (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6)" at "TATAWAGIN siyang IMANNUEL (Mt. 1:23)" o kaya'y "SUMASAATIN ANG PANGINOON"

Kitam?

Kaya huwag mo nang pagduldulan sa amin na "NASA BIBLIA" ang December 25 dahil WALANG-WALA talaga.

Ang inyong ABULUYAN at malaking PANGONGOLEKTA ng SALAPI mula sa mga kaanib ng INCorporated Church of Manalo-- JULY 27-- wala naman ito sa Biblia bakit naman kayo NANGANGANDARAPANG ipagdiwang ito?

At may INC Arena pa kayong itatayo para lamang sa JULY 27 celebration niyo sa 2014?

Mga IPOKRITO!

Heto at makikita mong MAS PAGANO ang INCorporated sa pagiging IPOKRITO nito sa kanilang mga aral.  Bagamat wala raw silang PASKO pero naku ang mga INCorporated Church of Manalo members ay halos araw araw kung mangaroling sa kapit-bahay, bumabati ng MERRY CHRISTMAS para tumanggap ng regalo, tumatanggap ng CHRISTMAS BONUS at nagbabakasyon sa CHRISTMAS BREAK, nakiki-EXCHANGE GIFT sa offices at schools--

Mga IPOKRITO!

Narito ang galing sa inyong OPISYAL na magasing PASUGO Disyembre 1957, p. 28: (sinulat ni Emeliano I. Agustin) (Patula) Ang KATOTOHANAN Tungkol sa INK-1914
“Ang diwa ng Pasko ay kapayapaan;
Nang mundong naglunoy sa lusak ng Buhay;
Mabuting balita sa kinalulugdan;
Pagsilang ni Jesus sa abang sabsaban."


Basahin ang: May Pasko nga ba ang INC?

Heto pa!



O ngayon mo sasabihing "pagano" ang mga nagdiriwang ng Pasko!!!

Ilang beses na na pinatunayan ng panginoong Hesus na siya ay tao,bakit itinituro ng katoliko na si Cristo ay Dios..???

At saan ba NABABASA na ANGHEL si FELIX MANALO? Saan ba masusumpungan ang mga TITIK ng kanyang PANGALAN na siya'y TINAWAG ng Dios?

WALA! Nangarap lamang si Felix na anghel! Fallen angel nga lang ang labas.

At saan ba MABABASA sa Biblia na sinasabing HINDI DIOS si CRISTO? Kung ilang ulit na pinatunayan ng Biblia na si CRISTO ay nasa ANYONG TAO hindi nangangahulugan na HINDI NA SIYA DIOS!!!

Bagkos ilang beses din sinasabi ng BIBLIA na SIYA NGA AY DIOS!

sa biblya binigyan ni Cristo ang lahat ng apostle ng tinapay na walang libadura at katas ng ubas....ehh bakit ang pari nio lamang ang umiinom ng kumbaga katas ng ubas sa tuwing magcocomunion kayo...???

Ilan ba kasi ang mga APOSTOLES? Dose lamang. Twelve in English. Isang basong alak na gawa sa katas ng ubas ay sosobra pa! May 1.1 BILLION po ang kaanib ng CATHOLIC CHURCH naniniwala kami na WALANG KATAWAN ang WALANG DUGO. Kaya't kung kinakain namin ang TINAPAY bilang KATAWAN ni CRISTO, ang katawan ay may kasamang dugo na ito at sapat na ito upang MAKABAHAGI sa pagdiriwang ng Huling hapunan.

Eh kayo? Paano niyo mauunawaan ito eh CRACKERS lamang at FRUIT JUICE ang inyong kinakain at iniinom. Aba, magbaon lang ako ng SKYFLAKES at Zesto ok na! Baka kahit magdala pa ako ng extra para sa walang dala ok lang.

Sa amin hindi. Alak at tinapay na walang libadura ang kinakain namin! Kami ang sumusunod sa mga sinabi ni Cristo "Kunin at kanin, ito ang aking KATAWAN na ihahandog para sa inyo" (Mt. 26:26; Mk 14:22).

Kayo eh SIMBOLO lamang!

May nababasa ka ba sa Biblia na nagsasabing "Ito ay SIMBOLO ng aking katawan..."? Wala!

rosaryo....may saligan ba sa Bibliya.(wala)...

Meron!

"Hail, full of grace the Lord is with you..." (Lk. 1: 28; 48)

"Our Father, who art in heaven, hollowed be thy name..." (Mt 6:9–13; Lk 11:2-4)

"Holy Mother of God" (Lk 1:41-43)

"Pray for us sinners.." (Revelation 7:9-17)

Eh ang manalangin kay Manalo, nasa Biblia ba?

ipinagbabawal ng ang pagsamba sa mga Diyos diyusan at sa mga larawang inanyuan..ehh bakit may mga rebulto kayong sinasamba...MArami pa po ang kasinungalingang aral ang itinuturo ng simbahang katoliko..SANA'Y MAGISING NA PO KAYO,HUWAG NG MAGBULAG BULAGAN PA NI MAGBINGIBINGIHAN ...PURO BALUKTOT NA MGA ARAL NAMAN ANG INYONG IPINAGTATANGGOL...!!!!PAGPALAIN NAWA ANG BUONG IGLESIA NI CRISTO...PURIHIN ANG AMA,ANG NAG-ISANG DIYOS NA NASA LANGIT.

"Inanyuhang" bagay?

Eh anong tawag dito?



At bakit may PAALALA pang "huwag" raw sambahin? Sapagkat MAY MGA SUMASAMBA NA NGA KAY FELIX MANALO!?

Tulungan pa kitang maghalungkat sa aming OPISYAL NA KATEKISMO ng IGLESIA KATOLIKA at WALA kang mahahanap roon na tinuturing naming "dios" ang mga banal sa langit!

Hungkag lang ang nag-iisip na si Rizal mismo ang rebulto niya sa Luneta! Kung gayon HUNGKAG nga ang mga kaanib ng INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserve Church of Manalo!

BALUKTOT ang aming mga ARAL sapagkat BINALUKTOT ito ng mga BULAANG mangangaral na mga MANALISTAS!  Kaya't ITINUTUWID namin sapagkat PILIT niyong BINABALUKTOT ang TAMANG KATURUAN sa IGLESIANG tunay na kay CRISTO!

Purihin ang Dios na buhay! Purhin si Cristo Hesus na Dios, Purihin ang Dios Ama, Anak at Espiritu Santo!Purihin ang Santatlo!

The Catholic Church leading Christians to Unity

Thanks to Jimmy Akin's Secret Info Club


The effort to restore full unity among the different groups of Christians in the world is known as "ecumenism." There has been a great deal of work done toward this goal in recent years. Some of it has been good; some of it has been bad.

In a recent address to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith--the Vatican department he headed before his election to the papacy--Pope Benedict outlined his thoughts on ecumenism.

Let us learn from his wisdom by reframing his remarks in a Q & A or "interview" format.

Your Holiness, why is ecumenism important?

The division among Christians, "openly contradicts the will of Christ, scandalizes the world, and damages that most holy cause, the preaching of the Gospel to every creature" (Vatican II, Decree on Ecumenism, Unitatis Redintegratio, n. 1).

Unity is therefore not only the fruit of faith but also a means and as it were a presupposition for proclaiming the faith ever more credibly to those who do not yet know the Savior. Jesus prayed: "that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me" (Jn 17:21).

Why is the search for Christian unity important today? How does this relate to the "Year of Faith" that you have called to begin in October 2012?

Sharia’s Global Reach: A Liberal Muslim Extradited to Possible Beheading

Article from PJ Media
By Phillip Smyth

Muhammad Najeeb Kashgari, better known as Hamza Kashgari, is a 23-year-old Saudi writer and the first victim of the global enforcement of radical Sharia by international legal authorities.

After writing several tweets that presented a liberal interpretation of Islam well within the normative boundaries of that religion, Kashgari was proclaimed a heretic by Saudi clerics. Fleeing to Malaysia he was captured with the reported help of an Interpol system and extradited back to Saudi Arabia to face a grim fate. The charge? Apostasy.

For an analysis of his tweets, see Barry Rubin, “Manufacturing Heresy.”

Almost immediately, he faced a social media backlash. In the 24 hours following his posts, around 30,000 responses were received by his Twitter account. By February 17, over 26,000 people joined a Facebook group titled “The Saudi people demand retribution from Hamza Kashgari.” Kashgari apologized online, and deleted his own tweets.

The apology and deletions weren’t enough for Riyadh’s Wahhabist religious establishment. Sheikh Nasser Omar went so far as to cry out on television about Kashgari’s “cursing of the prophet,” saying his apology was “cold” and demanding that he be executed.

Without official doctrinal statements, Iglesia ni Cristo is building its house on sand

From Bro. Quirino M. Sugon Jr's Monks Hobbit Blog

Question: Submitted on 2012/02/16 at 1:24 pm
Mr. Sugon:
First off, the true Christian teachings upheld by the Iglesia ni Cristo are readily available on the Web (e.g. Wikipedia), or via radio and television broadcasts. We have cable channel NET 25 where you can watch and learn the doctrines as well as the activities of the church. We may not have what you call official Web site, but, the FUNDAMENTAL teachings are readily available online. That’s why many of the critics of the INC, such as you, can elicit questions against them.
I am just wondering why you still ask for such official Web site if you are able to create a blog that criticizes our beliefs. If you don’t have the knowledge of the doctrines and beliefs of the INC, then why create an online journal such as this with the intention of challenging the truth of our faith. Just a thought, Mr. Sugon.
Also, the members of the Iglesia ni Cristo are FULLY AWARE of the fundamental doctrines of the church FYI. All of us are being instructed to remain steadfast in our faith through the pure teachings of Christ. That is also why you may find some members who may falter in their faith and eventually face excommunication (pagtitiwalag) due to unbelief or unchristian practices….

Submitted on 2012/02/17 at 3:20 pm | In reply to ivan.
Ivan,
Will INC trust Wikipedia to reflect its true doctrines? Will INC trust Net 25 to explain true doctrine? Humans come and go. If humans can err in grammar and sentence construction, how much more in official doctrines? If there are contradictions in the arguments, INC will just say, “It is not official”. I may make a blog criticizing INC beliefs, but what I am criticizing is what I think INC believes. This may be different from what INC truly believes. Thus, it is important that there is an official teaching that people can scrutinize word for word–a teaching with the seal of approval of the INC hierarchy. As Christ said:
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.j15 Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.” (Mt 5:14-15)
Opinions of men vary in time and place. But since the salvation of men requires that they be taught the truth, it is imperative that truths and doctrines be laid down in written form that will stand the test of time. INC must build its house on rock by writing down its official doctrine. Otherwise, INC builds its house on sand, and when the floods come, the house will be washed away. (cf Mt 7:24-27)

Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) churches, what a redundancy!

The word "iglesia" means "church" in Spanish, have you wondered why the redundancy? It's because INC is a registered corporation TRADEMARK (INCorporated All Rights Reserved Church of Manalo)! Thank you PhilStar!

MANILA, Philippines - The religious group Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) will hold a grand evangelical mission at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila on Feb. 28 to urge President Aquino and his administration to respect the “rule of law...

Hallucination: The "True Church" is back in Rome?!


QUESTIONS:
  1. Did the TRUE CHURCH LEAVE Rome? Since when?
  2. Was Eraño's visit to Rome means he is the "legitimate" representative of the "true church" the Iglesia ni Cristo®?
  3. Who commissioned Eraño Manalo?
  4. When Eraño was in Rome, was his presence felt? If not then why he's in Rome? Proclaiming nothing?
  5. When Eraño was in Rome, did he "proclaim" his Manalo's version of the "true church" against the Catholic Church which they said has "apostatized completely"? 
  6. Was he brave enough to proclaim boldly the "true Church" among the Romans just like Catholic Missionaries around the world emulating St. Peter (the first Pope) and other apostles BOLDLY proclaiming Jesus amidst threat of persecution? 
  7. Did Eraño have that "pentecostal" experience of "FEARLESS COURAGE" which may lead him to "Christian martyrdom"?
  8. Did Eraño feared "persecution" that his presence in Rome to "bring back" the "true Church" was NOT EVEN FELT?
  9. If he had "boldly proclaimed" the Manalo Church, had anyone believed his father's corporation is the "true Church" to be 'back" and to be "re-established" in Rome?
  10. Did Eraño meet the "anti-Christ" residing in the Vatican and proclaim himself as the "true" representation of God to "re-establish" the "true Church" right in the heart of Rome?
  11. If the "true Church" was indeed "back in Rome" where was  it established?  What's its name? Was it in TAGALOG "Iglesia ni Cristo"® signifying its humble beginnings in Punta SANTA ANA, in Manila and is now in ka-DILIMAN Quezon City? Or was it in Italian? Or Latin? or English "Church of Christ"® WITHOUT those words "Iglesia ni Cristo"® (or the other way around) carefully translated in parenthesis?


ANSWERS:
  1. The CHURCH NEVER left Rome! It was THERE before and IS STILL THERE today! History proves that! And the HUGE ARTIFACTS will speak of that FACT!
  2. Manalo's visit to Rome is for INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved Church a significant milestone.  For them his presence signifies the "true Church" of Manalo  now replacing the Catholic Church.  Of course, everyone is entitled for his own opinion.  They are FREE to DREAM! 
  3. No one mandated Eraño! Only his father and the laws of the republic.  The INC is a corporation sole owned and managed by the Manalo, it's logical that any of the Manalo's will be in-charge. All other companies in the Philippines is protected by that law!
  4. He knew Eraño was in Rome except the few fanatic cult members. Seeing him in person makes others in hysteria.  He's their "little pope" without ecclesiastical authority over anyone except the INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved Church of Manalo. Eraño was in Rome for inauguration of their "locale" there.  His audience? None but 99.9% Filipinos! 
  5. Eraño proclaimed the "true Church" in pure TAGALOG! He knows no Italian! Much more with ancient languages of the Bible. Surely he is AT LOST when it speaking to Greek, Hebrew or Latin. INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved Church of Manalo is a FILIPINO founded CHURCH (but not my church!)
  6. The Holy Spirit didn't descend on him. 
  7. Eraño was never seen in public debates nor he has spoken openly on major issues both local and international.  His concern only is to look after his father's flock the Inc. members!
  8. Eraño NEVER experienced the hardships of being "persecuted" except the fact that his father claimed to be the "Last Mesenger" or an "angel" from the East. Never he have gone a missionary life, NOT EVEN his own ministers were sent to jungles and pagan countries to proclaim God.  They are MOSTLY FOUND in places where Christianity (Catholicism) is WELL ESTABLISHED. There they do their "mission" of deception!
  9. Only few people around less than 10 million strong Filipinos!
  10. Eraño knew he would be put in prison if he would be shouting in the streets of Rome accusing the Pope as the "anti-Christ" and proclaim his father's church to be the "true Church". Because Eraño still KNOWS CONSCIOUSLY the fact that the Catholic Church is NO DOUBT the accepted TRUE CHURCH from history and the Bible!
  11. The "true Church" of Manalo is located somewhere in Via Viguzzolo No. 16 
    Rome 00166 Italy in a RENTED session hall.  The INCorporated 1914 All Rights Reserved Church of Manalo is NOW in Rome rented session hall.  The name is still in TAGALOG according to its registration in the Roman Securities and Exchange Commission.   

Oscars 2012: Mother Dolores Hart, Former Elvis Co-Star, To Walk Red Carpet In Religious Garments

Source: Hoft Post


Nearly 50 years after leaving Tinseltown to become a cloistered Benedictine nun, Mother Dolores Hart, who starred in films alongside the likes of Elvis Presley and Walter Matthau during her acting career, is returning to Hollywood to appear at the Academy Awards next Sunday. And she'll be wearing her religious habit.

Mother Dolores, 73, is the focus of "God Is the Bigger Elvis", an HBO documentary nominated in the best documentary short category.

The film documents Hart's unusual journey from starring in dozens of Hollywood films to becoming Prioress of the Benedictine Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Conn., where she acts as spiritual counselor to 38 cloistered nuns, Sojourners reports.

"It will be so nice to be back at the Oscars. It's such a fun night," Hart told USA Today. "The last time I was there was in 1959, when I was a presenter. This will be different."

Any Iglesia ni Cristo ® locale in Doha Qatar?


INC Answer: "It is my advice that you visit the Foreign Mission Secretariat Office at our Central Office for they could give all the information that you would need and more.."

My Answer: Iglesia ni Cristo® is never considered as a "church" by the Kingdom. They are among the other religious groups that are "illegal".  But the TRUE CHURCH is found in Doha.  Among the recognized main Christian Churches are the Catholic Church which has the biggest space alotted (see map below), followed by the Orthodox, Anglicans and some other Protestant churches-- all located in one place.


The STATE of QATAR has a diplomatic ties with the HOLY SEE in the VATICAN CITY.

In various cities, there are small group of Filipino Overseas Workers and members of the Iglesia®, thus being known to other nationals as the "Filipino Church".

The Catholic Church of Our Lady of the Rosary is a Roman Catholic church in Doha, Qatar, and the first Christian church in Qatar. In a simple function on March 15, 2008, the ₤7.5M saucer-shaped church was opened by Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Energy and Industry, by way of cutting a ribbon[1] in the presence of Archbishop Mounged Al Hachem, Ambassador of Vatican to the Gulf; Bishop Paul Hinder, Apostolic Vicariate of Arabia, Archbishop Giuseppe Andrea, former nuncio of Vatican to the region and several Qatari officials.

The church is on the outskirts of Doha, on land donated by Emir Hamad bin Khalifa.[3] The church aims to be discreet, and has no cross, bell, steeple, or signboard. (Source: Wikipedia)

Any Iglesia ni Cristo ® locale in Lebanon?


Answer:  The INC® of Manalo is NEVER known in Lebanon.  Therefore there is NO Iglesia ni Cristo® there!

If there are members of this cult in Lebanon are those coming from the Philippines working as Overseas Filipino Workers.

Confirmation comes from a blog of an INC® minister:



FACT: Lebanon Christian population is believed to be above the 39% of all the total population. Among the Christian churches, the Catholic Church has the largest number of believers, the Maronites which is both spiritual and politically influential.

Lebanon has a DIPLOMATIC TIES with the HOLY SEE of the VATICAN STATE!

Churches found in Lebanon (source Wikipedia) are:

  • Maronite Syriac Church of Antioch (belonging to the Catholic Church maintains close communion with the Bishop of Rome) 
  • Assyrian Church of the East (Nestorian -- INC® will find their doctrines to be copied from the Nestorians) 
  • Melkite Greek Catholic
  • Antiochian Greek Orthodox
  • Protestants (Mostly Americans and Westerner missionaries) 
  • Armenian Orthodox or Gregorian
Sorry, NO Iglesia ni Cristo!

List of Cathedrals in Lebanon are listed but NONE belongs to the Iglesia of Manalo® or commonly known as the INC (Iglesia ni cristo).

A BRIEF HISTORY of CHRISTIANITY in LEBANON  is helpful to those deceived by false preachers!

PAMBUBUKING SA PANGGOGOYO NG IGLESIA NI CRISTO TUNGKOL SA MGA LARAWAN PART V

Ni Bro. Marwil N. Llasos, OP
Read, PART IV, PART III, PART II, PART I

Inaalayan ng bulaklak si Felix Manalo at ang Pangulong Diosdado Macapagal at binibigyan ng parangal

            PAMBUBUKING SA PANGGOGOYO NG IGLESIA NI CRISTO TUNGKOL SA LARAWAN PART V
           
            May isang nauto ang mga ministro ng Iglesia ni Cristo na ang pangalan ay ALLAN JOSE DIGIDI. Buong akala ng natansong miyembrong ito ng INC na nagpaskel sa wall ng Facebook account ko ng isang video mula sa Youtube na ang pamagat ay “Kung Bakit ang IGLESIA NI CRISTO Walang Imahen o Rebulto.”[1] Makailang ulit na po nating nabuking ang mga kasinungalingan at pangloloko ng mga ministro ng INC sa pag-gamit nila ng mga pekeng referencia para lamang mapatunayan ang paborito nilang paratang na sumasamba ang Iglesia Catolika sa mga larawan.

Si Felix Y. Manalo ang tagapagtatag at ulo ng Iglesia ni Cristo

            Isa po sa mga referenciang ginagamit ng mga sinungaling na ministro ng INC ay ang diumano’r Catecismo na isinalin sa Tagalog ng paring si Luis de Amezquita. Sinisipi nila ang diumano’y makikita sa pahina 79 at 82 ng nasabing aklat. Anila, mababasa sa mga pahina ang mga sumusunod:

"Sabi ni Fr. Syndicus at Fr. De Amezquita ay dapat sambahin ang larawan.

"Pagbangon mo sa banig ay agad kang manikluhod sa isang Krus o mahal na larawan.

Kung maninikluhod ka sa tapat ng Altar, magwika ka ganito: "Sinasamba kita,"

Catesismo: Tinagalog ni Padre Luis de Amezquita p. 79 at 82."

Panggogoyo ng INC: Binabanggit daw sa pahina 79 at 82 ng Catecismo na tinagalog ni Padre Luis de Amezquita ang mga salitang "Sinasamba kita."

            Bago nating pasambulatin sa pagmumukha ng mga ministro ng INC ang kanilang mga kasinungalingan, iwawasto natin na ang tunay na pamagat ng Catecismo ni Padre Luis de Amezquita ay “Catecismo: na pinagpalamnan ng mga pangadyi at maikling kasaysayan na dapat pag-aralan nang taong cristiano.” Ito po ay inilimbag noong 1933 ng Libreria Y Papeleria de P. Sayo vda. De Soriano, sa Rosario No. 225, Binondo y Azcarraga, No. 552, Tondo, Manila, I.F.[2]

            Doble-doble kung magsinungaling ang Iglesia ni Cristo. Palibhasa manang-mana sa ama nilang Diabo na walang ni isang katiting na katotohanan. Dalawa po ang pangloloko ng mga ministrong halang ang kaluluwa.


 
Pansinin po na walang binabanggit sa pahina 79 ng Catecismo ang mga katagang "Sinasamba kita"

            Una po, ayon sa TV screen, makikita na hinango daw ang halaw mula sa aklat ni Padre Amezquita sa pahina 79 at 82. Ngunit pansinin po natin ang mga nalalahad sa pahina 79 at 82 ng Catecismo.

            Narito po ang matutunghayan sa pahina  Pahina 79:[3]

            Narito naman po ang matatagpuan sa po ang matutunghayan sa pahina Pahina 82.[4]

            Sadyang mga illiterate ang mga ministro ng INC. Mga hindi marunong magbasa. O talagang sadya lamang na mapanlinlang at singungaling. Basahin po ninyo at suriing maigi kung makikita ninyo sa mga pahinang binabanggit ng INC na wala ang kanilang binabanggit na halaw. Eh nasaan?


Wala rin po sa pahina 82 ng Catesismo ang mga salitang "Sinasamba kita."
           
            Nasa Pahina 96[5] po ngunit sadyang may DAGDAG-BAWAS na. Sumipi ng kakapiranggot at dinagdagan ng kasinungalingan. Ang sabi po ng mapanira ang sinungaling na ministro ng INC:

"Pagbangon mo sa banig ay agad kang manikluhod sa isang krus o mahal na larawan.

"Kung maninikluhod ka sa tapat ng Altar, magwika ka ganito: "Sinasamba kita,"

            Ano naman po ang aktuwal at tunay na nasasaad sa Catecismo? Tunghayan po natin: 


"Pagbangon mo sa banig ay agad kang manikluhod sa harap ng isang Cruz o ng isang mahal na larawan. Mangyaring mag Ang tanda ka muna at saka magdasal ng tatlong Ama namin sa Santisima Trinidad. Sa Dios Ama, ay hihingi ka ng pananampalataya ..."


Sa pahina 96 po ng Catecismo matatagpuan ang pamagat na "Sa pagbangon." Pero saan po dito nahablot ng mga ministro ng INC ang mga salitang "Sinasamba kita"? 

            Suriin po natin ang talamak at walang hiyang panggagantso ng mga ministro ni Manalo. Pansinin po ninyo ang mismong sinabi ni Padre Aezquita. Wala pong binabanggit na Kung maninikluhod ka sa tapat ng Altar, magwika ka ganito: "Sinasamba kita…"

            Wala ho, walang wala. Sadyang nagdagdag na naman po ang mga dalubhasa sa “dagdag-bawas” na mga ministro ng INC. Hindi na po talaga tinatablan ng hiya ang apog ng mga tampalasang ito. Nuknukan talaga sila ng kasinungalingan palibhasa kasi manang-mana sa ama nilang Diablo (Jn. 8:44).

Desperadong idinadagdag lang ng mga mapanirang ministro ng INC ang mga salitang “SINASAMBA KITA” para lamang maipalabas niya na dinidiyos ng mga Katoliko ang mga rebulto. Walang magawang matino sa buhay ang mga halang ang kaluluwang  mga ito. Salamat sa Dios at walang lihim ang hindi nabubulgar. Pansinin po ninyo sa tunay at orihinal na referencia ay walang binabanggit na “Sinasamba kita.” Gawa-gawa o imbento lamang ng nga ministrong alipores ng kadiliman na bihasang-bihasa sa pagsisinungaling at panggogoyo sa kapwa. Husto na ang katampalasanang ito. Bistado na kayo!                                                                                         

Sino ang may katha ng kasinungalingan at panglolokong ito? Walang iba kundi si Felix Y. Manalo sapagkat ayon sa Pasugo, lahat ng mga itinuturo ng mga ministro ng Iglesia ni Cristo ay si Felix Manalo lamang ang bumabalangkas at nagtuturo sa kanila. Tunay nga na kung ano ang puno, siya ang bunga. Puro kasinungalingan at panlilinlang lamang ang binalangkas at itinuro ng pekeng anghel na si Felix Manalo. Ganyan ba ang "Sugo" ng Dios na sinungaling? Hindi po kundi sugo ng kanyang amang Diabo (Juan 8:44).

Tumbukin Natin: Mga Pinekeng Reperensiya ng Iglesia ni Manalo

Ni Bro. Cenon Bibe ang may akda ng "TUMBUKIN NATIN BLOG"

MAY MGA BINTANG po itong X-CATHOLIC na TUMALIKOD NA sa IGLESIA KATOLIKA at UMANIB NA sa IGLESIA NI CRISTO na ITINATAG ni FELIX MANALO noong July 27, 1914.

ILALAHAD po NATIN sa IBABA ang mga BINTANG NIYA at SASAGUTIN na rin po NATIN AGAD.
Ang isa sa mga utos ng Dios na nilabag/tinalikuran ng Iglesia Katolika ay ang utos po na nagbabawal sa pagsamba sa mga larawan at rebulto.

Exodo 20:3-5

"Huwag kang MAGKAKAROON ng ibang mga dios sa harap ko."
"Huwag kang GAGAW para sa iyo ng LARAWANG INANYUAN o ng kawangis man ng anomang anyong nasa itaas sa langit,o ng tubig sa ilalim ng lupa:"
"Huwag mong YUYUKURAN sila,o PAGLINGKURAN man sila;

CENON BIBE:
SORRY po pero MALI po ang AKALA NINYO dahil MALI po ang UNAWA NINYO sa PANINIWALA ng KATOLIKO at sa SINASABI ng EXODUS 20:3-5.

NAIPALIWANAG KO na po ito pero UULITIN KO dahil tila po HINDI NINYO NAALALA.

Una, ang IPINAGBABAWAL sa EXODUS 20:3-5 ay mga "LARAWANG INANYUAN" ng mga "IBANG MGA DIYOS."

Pangalawa, WALA pong GANYAN ang mga KATOLIKO.

Ang MAYROON ang mga KATOLIKO ay mga IMAHEN na PAALALA sa DIYOS o sa mga BANAL na LINGKOD NIYA.

MAGKAIBA po IYAN.

KATUNAYAN, kahit ang mga ISRAELITA ay GUMAWA at NAGKAROON ng mga LARAWANG INANYUAN. HINDI po NINYO NATUTULAN YAN, di po ba?

Kaya KUNG IYAN ang BATAYAN NINYO na "NATALIKOD" ang UNANG IGLESIA ay MALI po ang INYONG BATAYAN.

X-CATHOLIC na INC NA said:
Sa isang Aklat Katoliko..Ang Pananampalataya ng Ating mga Ninuno,p.200 ni James Cardinal Gibbons.,

"Sa ganitong kahulugan,sa pagkakilala ko,bumabanggit ang mga manunulat na escolastico hinggil sa gayon ding PAGSAMBANG iniuukol sa mga LARAWAN ni Kristo na parang kay Kristong Panginoon natin narin ;sapagka't ang gawang kung tawagin ay PAGSAMBA sa isang LARAWAN ay tunay na PAGSAMBA kay Kristo na rin,sa pamamagitan ng PAGYUKOD sa harap ng LARAWAN na parang sa harap ni Kristo na rin,.."

Inaamin po mismo ng Iglesia Katolika ang ginagawa nilang PAGSAMBA at PAGYUKOD sa mga LARAWAN o REBULTO....ITO PO AY PAGSAMBA SA dios-diosan na mahigpit po na ipinagbabawal ng Dios!

CENON BIBE:
NALOKO PO KAYO ng NAGTURO sa INYO ng BAGAY na IYAN. BINALUKTOT at PINEKENG REPERENSIYA po kasi YAN.

Una po, HINDI po SI CARDINAL GIBBONS ang NAGSASALITA sa SINIPI NINYO kundi ang PROTESTANTENG si LEIBNITZ na SINIPI rin lang ng CARDINAL.

Diyan ay IDINIDEPENSA ni LEIBNITZ ang PAGKAKAROON ng IMAHEN ng mga KATOLIKO, KABALIKTARAN sa ITINURO sa INYO.

MALIBAN po sa MALI-MALING SALIN sa SINIPI NINYO ay SADYA ring BINAWASAN ang mga SINASABI sa LIBRO para po MALOKO ang mga TULAD NINYONG WALANG MALAY sa BUONG KATOTOHANAN.

OUT OF CONTEXT po kasi ang SINIPI NINYO.

NARITO po ang SADYANG PINUTOL ng GUMAWA ng SINIPI NINYO:

"Though we speak of honor paid to images, yet ,this in only a manner of speaking, which really means that we honor not the senseless thing which is incapable of understanding such honor, but the prototype, which receives honor through its representation, according to the teaching of the Council of Trent."

MALINAW po riyan na ang tinutukoy na "honor paid to images" ay "only a manner of speaking" o SA SALITA LANG. HINDI TOTOHANAN at HINDI AKTWAL.

Eto pa po, "we honor not the senseless thing ... but the prototype"

HINDI raw po yung WALANG KWENTANG BAGAY ang DINADAKILA kundi yung IPINAPAALALA NIYON.

IYAN po ang KONTEKSTO ng SINABI sa SINIPI NINYO na "Sa ganitong kahulugan,sa pagkakilala ko, bumabanggit ang mga manunulat na escolastico hinggil sa gayon ding PAGSAMBANG iniuukol sa mga LARAWAN ni Kristo na parang kay Kristong Panginoon natin narin ..."

KITA po NINYO?

Nung INILAGAY NATIN sa KONTEKSTO ay NAKITA NATIN na HINDI TALAGA PAGSAMBA sa IMAHEN ang TINUTUKOY kundi "only a manner of speaking" LAMANG.

Ang LAKI ng PAGKAKAIBA, di po ba?

Kaya po NALOKO TALAGA KAYO ng KINUNAN NINYO ng SIPI.
