"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

PAANO MALALAMAN ANG PEKE SA TUNAY? Ikaw ba'y BIKTIMA?

Minsan akong dumaan sa may Baclaran at Divisoria. Napansin ko na ang dami-daming mga naggagandahang mga gadgets , mobile phones, damit, sunglasses, bags, accesories -- LAHAT ay kuha sa pangalang BRANDED-- Kapangalan ng mga SIKAT at BRANDED na bagay at ang mga ito ay ibinebenta lamang sa mas murang halaga kumpara sa mga department stores.

Ang bansag natin dito ay "MADE IN CHINA" kung PEKE!

Kung papansinin niyo ang mga PEKENG mga produkto, halos sila'y NAGKUKUMPULAN sa mga LIBLIB at TAGONG lugar na dinarayo naman ng mga tumatangkilik nito. At HINDI sila nag-a-advertise ng kanilang mga PEKENG produkto sapagkat ALAM ng gumawa na PEKE nga ang kanilang gawa.

At kapag ginawa niya iyon ay MAPUPUNA sila ng mga taong NAKAKAKILATIS ng TUNAY sa PEKE at MALALANTAD ang kanilang masamang gawain. Ang mga NAMEMEKE lamang ang NAKAKAALAM kung paano nila ginagawa ang PAMEMEKE at PAMBOBOLA sa mga namimiling WALANG MUWANG sa katotohanan.

Hindi naman natin minamaliit ang mga kababayan nating "bagong salta" sa kabihasnan (o "promdi" kung tawagin ng mga taga-kanayunan), sila ang mga kauna-unahang mga BIKTIMA ng mga PAMEMEKE at PAMBOBOLA.

Iglesia ni Cristo Established by Felix Manalo-- owned ONLY by the Manalos!

Extracted from Philippine Embassy, USA (emphasis mine)
Established by “Ka” (Brother) Felix Y. Manalo in Sta. Ana, Manila, on July 14, 1914, INC has grown to become one of the country’s biggest religious denominations.

The church has millions [how many millions???] of members in its more than 5,400 congregations in the Philippines and in 90 countries worldwide [composed of Overseas Filipino Workers]...

"...When Ka Felix Manalo passed away on April 12, 1963, his post was taken over by his son, Ka Eraño G. Manalo. Upon Ka Eraño’s demise on August 31, 2009, his eldest son, Bro. Eduardo “Ka Ed” V. Manalo succeeded him to become INC’s current Executive Minister." [Angelo is next in line when Ka Eduardo dies...]

Iglesia ni Cristo (1914): 98 Years of Unbiblical Pagan Celebration


Since July 27 is NOT found in the Bible (like they use to demonize December 25 as Christ's birth commemoration), does it mean the Iglesia in Cristo 1914 (INC of Manalo) celebration is all PAGAN too?

The INC Church of Manalo has celebrated its 98th Year FOUNDING anniversary last Friday when Felix Manalo, it's founder registered HIS CHURCH in 1914.

The same OUTCOME research of Mr. Damon L. Woods, a visiting professor at UCLA who earned PhD in Southeast Asian History said in his book The Philippines: A Global Studies Handbook, p. 125-127, (emphasis mine):

One of the new religious groups, started by a Filipino who broke away from American missionary authority, was the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), the Church of Christ. It remains a dominant institution in the Philippines today, its churches and chapels with their easily recognizable architecture scattered throughout the archipelago. It was founded by Felix Manalo, who after being raised in a devout Roman Catholic home and having some contact with millenarian groups at Mount Banahaw, declared himself to be a Protestant at the age of sixteen. He first joined the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1904 and then the Presbyterian Church the following year, attending classes for a short time at the Ellinwood Bible School. IN 1908, he joined the Disciples of Christ and served as an evangelist for a year before leaving, having been accused of domestic violence. IN 1912, he joined the Sevent Day Adventists, but was supended a year later for alledged adultery. Manalo decided to start his own church and on July 27, 1914, he incorporated Iglesia ni Cristo. Beginning in Manila, the movement spread out into the provinces. By the beginning of World War II, there were churches of this new group in almost every province on Luzon and in the eastern part of the Visayas.

The doctrines of the church begin with the belief that Felix Manalo was the fulfillment of Revelation 7:1-3, which speaks of the angel from the east. Because Manalo had visited the United States in 1919 and then returned from the east to the Philippines, he proclaimed in 1921 that he was that angel. In addition, the church founded in Jerusalem by Jesus of Nazareth became apostate and did not exist from 70 CE to 1914, but was reborn with the appearance of the angel from the east. In contrast to its Protestant roots, the movement is not Trinitarian and holds the Jesus was not divine.

The movement’s phenomenal growth has been tied to various factors, beginning with the charismatic leadership of its founder, who dominated the church for forty-nine years. Not only an eloquent speaker, he was a master organizer who had absolute control. Only Manalo had authority to interpret the Bible, and he prepared the sermon outlines for his ministers. The indigenous nature of the church also made it popular.

Founded by a Filipino for Filipinos, Filipinos alone have been responsible for its activities, including the construction of its many buildings. The use of Tagalog and other local dialects, rather than English, in the services, hymns, prayers, and sermons is also important. The INC has has provided a sense of community for many. Congregations are close-knit, self-contained, and separatist in nature. Members help each other find work, and the church makes loans to those starting businesses. Members are well-trained in the tenets of their faith and, in contrast to other Filipinos, are able to defend their doctrines by quoting the Bible verses. On the other hand, the fear of excommunication keeps members from straying. One can be cast out of the church for excessive drinking or gambling, disagreement with the policies of the church, apostasy, marriage to someone outside the church, and adultery.

In brief:

  • When Felix Manalo was 16, he had associated himself with cults in Mt. Banahaw and declared himself a Protestant at a young age.
  • In 1904 he joined the Methodist Episcopal Church.
  • In 1907 he joined the Presbyterian Church.
  • In 1908 he joined the the Disciples of Christ where he was accused of domestic violence (see below), and so he left.
  • In 1910 he joined the Christian Mission where he was particularly attracted to Baptism by immersion. He married Tomasa Sereneo of Paco.
  • In 1911 he joined the Seventh Day Adventists founded by Helen G. White which influenced his theology much. The same year he married Honorata de Guzman of Sta. Cruz. According to Mr. Damon he was suspended by the Adventist Church for alledged adultery
  • From 1912 he was an atheist and agnostic, an unbeliever in God or a supreme being.
  • In 1913 he began studying all religious articles he took from former churches he belonged.
  • In 1914 he founded a church and registered his it the Iglesia ni Kristo
  • In 1921 sensing a threat of schism within his church through a scandal of immorality by Felix Manalo, he declared himself "Angel from the East" or "Huling Sugo".
  • In 1922 his fear of schism happened. He was accused of immorality published in newspapers, that resulted in a schism led by Teofilo Ora where Eliseo Soriano, founder of Ang Dating Daan was once a member.
  • In 1963, April 12, 2:35 A.M. he died, his stomach burst like Judas Iscariot's death.

Among the teachings of other protestant churches that Felix Manalo COPIED in his INC Church are the following:

  1. Denial of the Blessed Trinity heavily influenced by Anabaptists and Restorationists
  2. Denial of the Divinity of Christ
  3. Oneness (God the Father)
  4. Pope as the Anti-Christ witten in Revelations
  5. Catholics are damned to eternal damnation
  6. State of Dead people "dead know nothing" (Ecclesiastes 9:5), therefor reject the Doctrine of Purgatory 
  7. Baptism by Immersion

According to Manalo, since 70 AD to 1914 AD Christ was a FAILURE saving NO-ONE except when in 1914 when Felix Manalo "re-establish" what JESUS' FAILED to do.  Obviously FYM DECEIVED million Filipinos of which we- members of the CHURCH OF CHRIST founded by JESUS has the mandate and responsibility to SAVE them from Felix LIES.  While they are counting their FOUNDATION ANNIVERSARY, let's recommend them to our prayers that one day they will see the TRUE LIGHT coming from the TRUE JESUS who founded the TRUE CHURCH-- the ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC, APOSTOLIC CHURCH of CHRIST!

CNA: Former atheist poet reveals details of her Catholic conversion

By David Kerr

Poet Sally Read
Rome, Italy, Jul 27, 2012 (CNA/EWTN News).- “Until two years ago, I was a really committed atheist and I really hated the Catholic Church,” said poet Sally Read, as she explained how all that dramatically changed during nine months in 2010.

“The whole process took from March to December, and I was received into the Catholic Church at the Vatican in December, so it was a bit of a lightning flash,” she told CNA on July 24.

A 41-year-old Englishwoman, Sally Read is regarded as a rising star within the world of poetry. Her publisher describes the former psychiatric nurse as “one of a new generation of younger poets shaping the future of British poetry.”

Asia News: A Muslim convert talks about Christ

by Bernardo Cervellera
By coming out openly on TV, with the danger of recognition and persecution for 'apostasy,' Mohammed Christophe reasserted the importance of conversion and baptism. In Muslim nations, various bishops and priests refuse to baptise Muslims who want to become Christian. Yet, conversion means a revolution in the relationship with God, the father, and Jesus, who gave his life, for one gives up everything putting one's life at risk.

Rome (AsiaNews) - A few days ago, the website of Notre Dame de Kabylie posted a tape in which a former Muslim, Mohammed Christophe Bilek, talked about his conversion to Christianity. The original broadcast, which focused on the persecution of Christians, first appeared in 'Dieu Merci' (Thank God), a show that deals with religion on Direct 8, a French TV channel.

Mohammed Christophe Bilek was born in Algeria in 1950 and has lived in France since 1961. He is the author of two books: Un algérien pas très catholique (A not very Catholic Algerian), published by Cerf (1999) and Saint Augustin raconté à ma fille (Saint Augustine as told to my daughter), published by Éditions Qabel (2011). In the 1990s, he founded the Notre Dame de Kabylie (in French), a website devoted to evangelisation among Muslims and Muslim-Christian dialogue.

In the video, Bilek highlights the risk Muslim converts face when accused of apostasy, an offence that can be punished by death. Nevertheless, he insists on the importance of baptism, the encounter with Jesus Christ and affiliation with the Church.

His views go against those of priests and bishops in Muslim countries, who prefer to dissuade or even deny baptism to Muslims who want to convert out of fear for the consequences they and Christian communities might face.

Is baptising banned?

By Philip Jenkins: The Myth of Pedophile Priests

Source: By Fr. Dwight Longenecker Patheos Blog

As more pedophile priest scandals blow up across Europe we should be ashamed of the offenders and those who sheltered them and oppressed the victims. The guilty should be weeded out, removed from office and handed over to the civil authorities where they are guilty of crimes. Systems to avoid abuse must be established and rigorously maintained, and victims should be justly compensated for their suffering.

However, Penn State professor Philip Jenkins (who is not a Catholic) has written the most objective book on the subject, and he summarizes his arguments in this excellent article. In light of his work, we should remember some basic facts and principles:

  • Priestly celibacy is not the issue – married men are more likely to abuse children than unmarried
  • Most child abuse takes place within the home.
  • All religious groups have pedophile scandals, and the Catholics (while the largest religious group) are at the bottom of the list statistically.
  • Child abuse is prevalent in all areas of society: schools, youth organizations, sports, etc.
  • Statistically, of all the professions, Christian clergy are least likely to offend. Doctors, Farmers and Teachers are the professions most likely to abuse children–not clergy.
  • Among clergy offenders Catholic priests are least likely to offend.
  • Catholic cases of pedophilia make more headlines because of anti Catholic prejudice and because the Catholic Church is bigger and more lucractive to sue.
  • Pedophilia and Euphebophilia are different problems. The former is sexual attraction to pre-pubescent children. The latter is attraction to teenagers. Most cases branded ‘pedophila’ are actually ‘euphebophila.’
  • Most of the cases of euphebophilia are homosexual in nature, however the politically correct do not want this problem to be associated with homosexuality.
  • The number of Catholic priests guilty of pedophilia is very small.
  • What we now call ‘cover up’ was often done in a different cultural context, when the problem was not fully understood and when all establishment organizations hushed scandals. They did so for what seemed good reasons at the time: protection of the victims and their families, opportunity for rehabilitation of the offender, the avoidance of scandal to others. It is unfair to judge events thirty years ago by today’s standards.
  • When lawsuits are looming people smell money. We must be wary of false accusations.
  • The accused must be entitled to a fair hearing. The church should insist on hard proof of the abuse, and for the sake of justice, ensure that the innocent are not prosecuted.
  • When guilt is established the offender must be punished, not sheltered.
  • Distinctions must be made between types of abuse. Some offenses are worse than others. Verbal abuse or corporal punishment during a time when that was acceptable, while lamentable, is not the same as sexual abuse or extreme physical abuse.
  • Sexual abuse of an adult, or a sexually experienced older teenager is wrong, and damaging, and should be punished, but it is not the same as the sexual abuse of a younger, innocent child.
  • Number of offenses must be considered. One lapse is not of the same seriousness as repeated, persistent and premeditated offenses.

I am in no way wishing to be soft of pedophiles and those who covered for them, however justice and truth demand an objective analysis of the facts.

The Myth of Pedophile Priests

By Philip Jenkins
Source: Zenit.org

Every day, the news media have a new horror story to report, under some sensational headline: Newsweek, typically, is devoting its current front cover to "Sex, Shame and the Catholic Church: 80 Priests Accused of Child Abuse in Boston." Though the sex abuse cases have deep roots, the most recent scandals were detonated by the affair of Boston priest John J. Geoghan.

Though his superiors had known for years of Geoghan´s pedophile activities, he kept being transferred from parish to parish, regardless of the safety of the children in his care. The stigma of the Geoghan affair could last for decades, and some Catholics are declaring in their outrage that they can never trust their church again.

No one can deny that Boston church authorities committed dreadful errors, but at the same time, the story is not quite the simple tale of good and evil that it sometime appears. Hard though it may be to believe right now, the "pedophile priest" scandal is nothing like as sinister as it has been painted -- or at least, it should not be used to launch blanket accusations against the Catholic Church as a whole.

Nag-iisa lamang ang Iglesia ni Cristo

Banal na sambahan ng Iglesia ni Cristo sa Vailankanni, Sumatra, Indonesia. Ito ay ang Annai Velankanni o Our Lady of Good Health (Source: Elisasjourney)
Ito ang TUNAY na IGLESIA NI CRISTO!

May mga nagsusulputan pong mga ibang iglesia at nagpapakilalang mga "Iglesia ni Cristo" raw sila o "Church of Christ", ano pa man ang wikang gamit sa pagpaparehistro, mapa-Ingles o Tagalog o ibang wika, hindi po sila maaaring Iglesia ni Cristo sapagkat IISA lamang po ang itinatag ni Cristo na Iglesiang para sa kanya.

Ang sabi po ng nagtatag sa Mateo 16:18:

"Ikaw ay Pedro at sa ibabaw ng batong ito itatayo ko ang aking iglesia at ang pintuan ng Hades ay hindi magsisipanaig sa kaniya."
Sa mga pahayag ng nagtatag na si Cristo, malinaw at tahasan niyang sinabing HINDI ITO MATATALIKOD dahil hindi magsisipanaig ang kapangyarihan ng Hades dito.

Samakatuwid ang lahat ng mga nagsusulputang mga Iglesia rin daw sila ay hindi mga tunay kundi mga huwad o peke.

Narito ang ilang sa mga nagsisulputang parang mga kabute na nagpapanggap na Iglesia ni Cristo:

  • The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (Mormonism) itinatag noong 1820 ni Joseph Smith  at sinabi niyang siya ay "Huling Propeta" ng Dios.
  • Iglesia ni Cristo (INC o INK) itinatag ni Felix Y. Manalo noong 1913 at nirehistro sa Pilipinas noong 1914. Ipinangaral ni F. Manalo na siya'y "Huling Sugo" noon lamang 1922.
  • Kabanalbanalang Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus itinatag ni Teofilo D. Ora noong 1922 na dating kaanib ng INC ni F. Manalo.
  • Iglesia ng Diyos kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Suhay ng Katotohanan itinatag ni Nicolas Perez na dating mga kaanib ng INC tatag ni F. Manalo at dati ring kaanib ng iglesiang tatag ni T. Ora. Nirehistro niya ang kanyang iglesia noong 1936
  • Iglesia ng Diyos kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohanan na tatag naman ni Eliseo Soriano ng "Ang Dating Daan"
  • Ang mga Kaanib sa Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohanan sa Bansang Pilipinas, Incorporated tatag ni Eliseo Soriano noong 1979
  • Bayan ng Katotohanan Incorporated tatag ulit ni Eliseo Soriano noong 1993
  • Iglesia ni YHWH at ni YHWSA HMSYH, Inc. tatag ulit ni Eliseo Soriano noong 1994
  • Members Church of God International o ang mas kilala sa pangalang "Ang Dating Daan" ay kay Eliseo Soriano rin, itinatag noong Enero 13, 2004
Ngunit ang Iglesiang tatag ni Cristo ay nanatiling NAG-IISA at tumatawid na po ito sa IKATLONG SIGLO!  At ang mga TUMALIKOD ay siyang mga nagsipagtatag ng kanilang mga iglesia gamit ang pangalan ni Cristo o ang Dios na ngayon ay UMAANGKING sila raw ang orig.

Ang IGLESIA po ni CRISTO ay maaring tawagin sa ano mang sinasalita ng tao, mapa-Tagalog, Ilocano, Bisaya, Ingles, Intsik, Koreano, Arabic, Pranses, Niponggo, etc, ng wala pong pagbabago sa kanyng pagkakakilanlan.

Hindi po mahirap ang pagkakakilanlan nito dahil laganap po ang Iglesia ni Cristo sa buong mundo. Ang kanyang pagpapakilala ay may KRUS sa kanyang mga bahay sambahan (maliban sa Gitnang Silangan na kinokontrol ng mga Muslim).

IGLESIA KATOLIKA - tangi at nag-iisang IGLESIA NI CRISTO at kailanman ay HINDI mananaig ang kapangyarihan ng Hades sa kanya.

    Christian Convert Beheaded on Egyptian TV

    GodReports have this terrible story.

    Video footage of a convert from Islam to Christianity being murdered by Muslims has been shown on Egyptian TV, according to the Barnabas Fund.

    The graphic incident, which is reported to have taken place in Tunisia, was aired on a program called Egypt Today.

    The footage shows a young man being held down by masked men with a knife to his throat. One man chants a number of Muslim prayers in Arabic, mostly condemning Christianity. The man holding the knife to the Christian convert’s throat begins to cut, slowly severing the head amid cries of “Allahu Akbar” (“god is great”).
    \

    Please say a prayer for this man, his family and all the Christians in danger because of their belief in Christ.

    CNA: Catholic faith moves man to forgiveness after murder of wife and daughter

    Arturo Martinez-Sanchez and one of his sons.
    Las Vegas, Nev., Jul 18, 2012 / (CNA).- Arturo Martinez-Sanchez says he had no choice but to forgive the man suspected of sexually assaulting and killing his wife and young daughter in an April 2012 attack that also left him seriously wounded.

    “I have to forgive him, to go the way of life,” the Las Vegas resident told CNA in a July 17 interview. “It's in the Bible … I forgive him because I believe in God.”

    “The Bible says: You forgive this gentleman, and you are forgiven yourself. That's the way it is,” said Martinez-Sanchez, a lifelong Catholic who said his upbringing and education in the Church impressed on him the need to forgive Bryan Clay.

    Martinez-Sanchez recently held a press conference to declare that he forgave the 22-year-old Clay, who is accused of raping Arturo's 38-year-old wife Yadira and their 10-year-old daughter Karla. Both were beaten to death with a hammer by the attacker, who also inflicted severe head injuries on the father.

    Clay and Martinez-Sanchez did not know each other before the home invasion, described by a Las Vegas police lieutenant as “a random, savage act.” The 39-year-old father and his wife also had two sons, Christopher and Alejandro, who were spared in the attack.

    Again SunStar said Felix Manalo Founded the Iglesia ni Cristo

    RESIDENTS of Antonio J. Montalvan Street are mulling to stage a protest at City Hall if the street will be renamed to “Felix Y. Manalo St.”

    Eduardo Montalvan, a direct descendant of Dr. Antonio J. Montalvan, said he will join the protest along with his family once the City Council will approve the resolution filed by City Councilor Alvin Calingin.

    On Tuesday, Calingin filed three resolutions, one of which is to rename Montalvan St. as “Felix Y. Manalo St.” in honor of the founder of Iglesia ni Cristo (INC)...."[emphasis mine] -SunStar

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    CAGAYAN de Oro City councilors argued Tuesday over a proposed resolution renaming two streets in the city in honor of the founder and the former minister of Iglesia ni Cristo (INC).

    Councilor Alvin Calingin authored three resolutions declaring July 27, 2012 and every year thereafter as INC Day in Cagayan de Oro City, renaming the Montalvan St. as “Felix Y. Manalo St.” in honor of the founder of INC [emphasis mine]; and naming the road from the junction of Concordio Diel St. and Villarin St. in Barangay Carmen to the landfill in upper Dagong up to the boundary of Barangay Canitoan as “Eraño V. Manalo St.” in honor of INC’s former executive minister.

    With the large population of INC in the city, Calingin wanted the immediate approval of the resolution, citing that INC’s anniversary is fast approaching..." -SunStar

    Tom Cruise's ex-wife returned to the Catholic Church

    Tom Cruise's ex-wife Katie Holmes has returned to the Catholic Church since she left for her husband's Scientology sect.  Tom Cruise is said to have enjoyed second highest position in the hierarchy of Scientology.
    "(Katie Holmes)who renounced her Catholic upbringing for Scientology when she married Cruise in 2006 – has registered as a parishioner at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York City not far from her Chelsea apartment. That presumably means she'll be taking Suri along with her to Mass. “Everyone is thrilled to have Katie join us,” a member of the church's choir told The Huffington Post on Monday. “She has not yet attended a service, but when she does she will be welcomed with open arms.” -Yahoo!News!

    Salvation Between two Symbols

    In all Catholic Churches in every corner of the earth, a CROSS is hoisted high above its houses of worship (except in Islamic controlled states of Qatar, UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait).  All throughout our history, Christians and non-Christians knew that the CROSS symbolizes the CHRISTIAN FAITH and the CATHOLIC CHURCH (that explains why Muslims consider the cross as unlawful or haram and other quasi-Christian groups consider it the "sign of the beast" in the Book of Revelations.)

    Source: TexasEscapes
    Why it is our SYMBOL?

    "For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with the wisdom of human eloquence, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning.

    "The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

    The MEANING of the CROSS on top of our HOUSES of WORSHIP is the "POWER of GOD" because we are being SAVED by the POWER of this CROSS!

    How about those who REFUSED to recognize the "Power of God" in the Cross of Christ and replaced it with pointed pillars or buildings with empty meanings?

    How about this symbol?  Where can we find it in the Bible that this symbol is the "Power of God"?


    See how they STRIPPED the CROSS and replaced the symbol with INC Church of Manalo's un-Biblical symbol?

    Purchased former Catholic Church in La Motte, Iowa, USA by the Iglesia ni Cristo founded by Felix Manalo in 1914. (INC's symbol on top of the building was product of edition.)
    So who are afraid (hated) of the CROSS of CHRIST?
    •  Islam and the Muslims (founded by Mohammad through a "revelation" in 610 AD). They do not believe in the power of the cross because they do not believe Jesus, as a prophet didn't die-- less on a humiliating death on a cross.
    • The Seventh-day Adventists (founded by Helen G. White in 1863 AD). They consider the cross as the "Sign of the Beast."
    •  The Iglesia ni Cristo (founde by Felix Manalo in 1914 AD). Felix Manalo copied this doctrine from Helen G. White for he was once a full fledged Minister of Gaud's church.
    • The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (Mormons-founded by Joseph Smith 1820AD) who considers the Bible less important.  Their official book is the Book of Mormon 

    For us CATHOLICS who are saved, the Cross is the symbol of the Power of God! (1 Cor 1:17-18)

    AMEN!

    INC Comment: Iglesia Katolika ang tunay na Iglesia ni Cristo

    Comment hango sa post natin sa Unexplained Centennial Logo of the INC:


    Anonymous July 5, 2012 12:22 PM

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

    oo sila nga ang unang iglesia ni cristo at sila rin ang tumalikod.... batay yan sa pahayag ni cristo.. dapat sana hanggang ngayon ay iglesia parin ni cristo ang pangalan at hindi katoliko. dahil nagbago lahat sa kanila lalo na ang mga aral nagka malimali na ang tinuro at hindi ang aral ng panginoong jesucristo.

    kaya ayun... tuluyan nang natalikod sa pananampalataya..

    pero wag mag alala dahil hinulaan naman sa bibiliya na sa mga wakas ng lupa o sa malapit ng dumating ang panginoong jesus ay babangon muli ang tunay na iglesia ni cristo na tinayo nya noon at sa pilipipinas magsisimula. dala nila ang tunay na aral ng Dios.

    dati po akong katoliko na sumasamba sa mga rebulto at nagpapasalamat ako ng naliwanagan ako ng ang Dios ay espirito (walang laman at buto) sa makatuwid hindi pwedeng gawan ng larawan.

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

    Salamat naaman at TANGGAP niyo pala na ang IGLESIA KATOLIKA ang siyang TUNAY na IGLESIA ni CRISTO.   Salamat sa opisyal na pahayag ng Pasugo.

    Kaya kung kami nga ang TUNAY sa PASIMULA pa, kami pa rin ang TUNAY hanggang sa wakas.  Ito'y sinabi ni CRISTO na siya MISMO ang NAGTATAG ng kanyang Iglesia!

    In ANTIOCH we were called Catholics and Christians!

    The termCHRISTIAN were first used by people from Antioch (Act. 11:26)

    The termCATHOLIC was first recorded in the letter of St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD) in reference to the Christian Church which existed there. St. Ignatius was martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor.

    The Church was never referred to as the "Iglesia ni Cristo". It was frequently called the "church of God" or simply the CHURCH.  And this Church is the only Church that Christ built.  Romans 16:16 highlights the CHURCH in ROME where all "churches of Christ" were sending their greetings to her.

    The FAITH of the CHURCH of ROME was known "throughout the world" (Kata Holos - Catholic)):

    "First, I give thanks to my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is heralded throughout the world." (Kata Holos -  Catholic) -Romans 1:8

    Truly, the CATHOLIC FAITH is heralded "throughout the world"!

    Will you allow yourselves to be deceived by a church called the "Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ)"?

    Published on the SOLEMNITY FEAST of STS. PETER and PAUL, two pillars of the CHURCH! - CD2000


    Christ's Church should never be tricky. But the INC makes it more complicated to you.  Let us simplify it!

    When Felix Manalo founded his Church he REGISTERED it and named it the "Iglesia ni Kristo" (INK.)


     Then sometime later it was RENAMED the "Iglesia ni Cristo" (INC) -- that is what we read in all their houses of deception all throughout the Philippine archipelago.



    And since Manalo's Church is now present in many countries (through massive Overseas Filipino Workers), the INC or INK of Manalo  introduced his church AIDED with the international language English-- the "IGLESIA NI CRISTO (Church of Christ)"(now with two names-- one in its original registration name and in English).


    ...so as not to CONFUSE Manalo's "Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo)" from many other "Church(es) of Christ" founded by other Protestants in English speaking countries



    Just to make sure that the "Church of Christ" is what F. Manalo founded in the Philippines in 1914, their unexplained LOGO will serve as its GUIDING LIGHT.


    And just in case you wanted to know who their friends are? They have secret code known by this tri-color (copied Italian Flag) SYMBOL!


    And when they're dead, they are also identified with those magical and mysterious, unbiblical (copied Italian Flag) TRI-COLORS

    Maybe the sepulturero was confused with the colors-- it appears now to be of FRANCE FLAG!

    or their graves were MARKED with the accronym I.N.C. or simply INC.


    So that when the CHURCH is introduced with other (unregistered) names, the CHURCH would cease to be the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) according to their understanding.
    • The Church
    • The Catholic Church
    • Universal Church
    • Universal Church of Jesus Christ
    • Universal Church of Christ
    • Christ's Church
    • Apostolic Church
    • Church of the Lord
    • Church of God
    • Church of the Living God
    • Church of the Savior
    • Church of the Messiah
    • etc... etc.
    The name of the CHURCH should be EXACTLY as how it was REGISTERED by Felix Manalo -- the IGLESIA NI CRISTO (Church of Christ)! Period!

    But think about this:  How would you register the CHURCH of Christ when it was founded before every existing government on earth came to be?

    The CHURCH is authentically CHRIST's.  It is HISTORICAL yet NOT REGISTERED in any existing government today.  That's because when  the FAITH spread rapidly and the CHURCH grew bigger and became UNIVERSAL the same members of the CHURCH formed GOVERNMENTS, COUNTRIES, KINGDOMS, EMPIRES. So how could the CHURCH be registered when IT EXISTED FIRST before them?

    "To be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant" says Cardinal Newman, a Catholic Convert from protestantism.

    That's the very reason why Protestants including the INC of Manalo DO NOT want to talk history by all honesty.  If they would, they'd carefully choose those dark history of the Church and IGNORE the rest of it.  They couldn't even talk about HOW THE BIBLE came to be.

    Whether we name the CHURCH as
    • The Church
    • The Catholic Church
    • Universal Church
    • Universal Church of Jesus Christ
    • Universal Church of Christ
    • Christ's Church
    • Church of Christ
    • Apostolic Church
    • Church of the Lord
    • Church of God
    • Church of the Living God
    • Church of the Savior
    • Church of the Messiah
    • etc... etc.
    It's the SAME CHURCH -- ONE, HOLY CATHOLIC, APOSTOLIC CHURCH which JESUS founded upon the ROCK of ST. PETER (of which the Church celebrates their solemnity with St. PAUL today -- June 29).
     
    Having said that I am perfectly sure just as the sun rises from the east and sets in the west, members of the INC Church of Manalo  would say "the name was taken from Romans 16:16" (and (only) in Lamsa Acts 20:28)....

    English: "...greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you."
    Tagalog: "... magbatian kayo sa banal na halik. Lahat ng mga iglesia ni Cristo ay bumabati sa inyo."

    They would boast: "See our church name is there in the Bible"?

    Upon CLOSE SCRUTINY, the letter of St. Paul to Christians in ROME (not in Diliman) clearly says that "ALL THE CHURCH OF CHRIST" were SENDING their GREETINGS to the CHURCH of ROME."

    ROMANS 16:16 does not talk about the INC of Manalo but it talks about the CHURCH of ROME  "all the churches of Christ" sending their greetings to HER.

    Manalo's Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) in my memory NEVER HAD SENT any greetings to ROME!

    In fact, they wanted to CONQUER the eternal CITY for the MANALOS!

    Member of INC Church of Manalo waving an Italian Flag as their symbol!

    Published in their official magazine called Pasugo, ERAÑO's faked photo at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican shows their intent!

    Faked photo of the late Eraño Manalo at the Vatican, son of INC's founder with the TRI-COLOR (copied Italian Flag) pin on his barong.

    That TRUTH in Romans 16:16 is the proof that the Vatican City State where the SUCCESSOR of PETER resides has DIPLOMATIC TIES with every government and churches belonging to Christ in the world!
    Wikipedia

    So if "ALL THE CHURCHES of CHRIST" are supposed to SEND their greetings to the CHURCH of ROME, why is it that the "Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo)" in the Philippines DOES NOT send any greetings to the CHURCH of ROME? Just think about it!

    See how different peoples, races, and language flock to ROME not in (ka)Diliman!



    And kings, presidents, other christians and non-Christian recognize that OFFICE of the Successor of Peter and the CENTER of CHRISTIAN UNITY-- the eternal city of ROME!

    And because the CHURCH pre-dated their governments, world leaders were humbled enough to ADMIT that FACT and that without the CHURCH civilization of the western World couldn't be possible.  Vatican City State now considered the smallest state-- yet a sovereign country-- a FACT recognized by the world-- the Pope governing 1.2 billion believers!


     ROMANS 16:16 TALKS about the CATHOLIC CHURCH in ROME, which is GREETED by all the CHURCHES of CHRIST around the world.

    The CHURCH of CHRIST? -- it is the CHURCH -- it is the CATHOLIC CHURCH!
