Cardinal Parolin Addresses UN Security Council on Terrorism

Praise God, CHRIST'S CHURCH stands up against Terrorism!

New York, September 25, 2014 (Zenit.org

Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Pope's secretary of state, addressed the UN Security Council on Wednesday during the summit on foreign terrorist fighters in connection with the agenda item “Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.”

Here is the text of his address.

* * *

Mr. President,

My Delegation commends the United States of America for convening this timely Security Council open debate on “Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts”.

Mr. President,

Today’s debate comes at a time when we face the dehumanizing impact of terrorism fueled by violent extremism. The ongoing, and in some regions, escalating use of terror is a reminder that this challenge requires a shared commitment from all nations and people of good will. Indeed, terrorism represents a fundamental threat to our common humanity.

This institution was founded in the wake of an era in which a similar nihilistic view of human dignity sought to destroy and divide our world. Today, as then, nations must come together in order to fulfill our primary responsibility to protect people threatened by violence and direct assaults on their human dignity.

Pope Saint John Paul II reminded us in the wake of the tragic events of 11 September 2001 that the right to defend countries and peoples from acts of terrorism does not provide license to meet violence with violence, but rather “must be exercised with respect for moral and legal limits in the choice of ends and means. The guilty must be correctly identified, since criminal culpability is always personal and cannot be extended to the nation, ethnic group or religion to which the terrorists may belong.”

International cooperation must also address the root causes upon which international terrorism feeds. In fact, the present terroristic challenge has a strong socio-cultural component. Young people travelling abroad to join the ranks of terrorist organizations often come from poor immigrant families, disillusioned by what they feel as a situation of exclusion and by the lack of integration and values in certain societies. Together with the legal tools and resources to prevent citizens from becoming foreign terrorist fighters, Governments should engage with civil society to address the problems of communities most at risk of radicalization and recruitment and to achieve their satisfactory social integration.

Mr. President,

The Holy See – which is a sovereign international subject that also represents a world faith community – affirms that people of faith have a grave responsibility to condemn those who seek to detach faith from reason and instrumentalize faith as a justification for violence. As Pope Francis reiterated during his visit to Albania last Sunday, “Let no one consider themselves to be the “armour” of God while planning and carrying out acts of violence and oppression! May no one use religion as a pretext for actions against human dignity and against the fundamental rights of every man and woman, above all, the right to life and the right of everyone to religious freedom!”.

At the same time, it should be stressed that to counter the phenomenon of terrorism, achieving cultural understanding among peoples and countries and social justice for all is indispensable. For “whenever adherence to a specific religious tradition gives birth to service that shows conviction, generosity and concern for the whole of society without making distinctions, then there, too, exists an authentic and mature living out of religious freedom.”

Thank you, Mr. President.

Christianity and Islam: A Side by Side Comparison

Source: TheReligionOfPeace

* It is not the purpose of this site to promote any particular religion, including Christianity.
However, we do enjoy refuting nonsense, such as the claim that Muhammad
and Jesus preached a morally equivalent message or that all religion is the same.

"I will cast terror into the hearts of those who
disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads
and strike off every fingertip of them." 
"Allah" (Qur'an 8:12)
"Fight everyone in the way of Allah and
kill those who disbelieve in Allah."  
Muhammad (Ibn Ishaq 992)
"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."
Jesus (Matthew 5:14)
Even though many Muslims regard terrorists who kill in the name of Allah as criminals, they cannot deny that Muhammad also killed in the name of Allah.  What example of Jesus do Christians emulate which has them confused them with terrorists and criminals?

Each year, thousands of Christian homes and churches are torched or bombed by Muslim mobs, and hundreds of Christians, including dozens of priestspastorsnuns and otherchurch workers are murdered at the hands of Islamic extremists.  The so-called justification varies, from charges of apostasy or evangelism, to purported "blasphemy" or "insulting" Islam.  Innocent people have even been hacked to death by devout Muslims over cartoons.

Yet, there is little if any violent retaliation from religious Christians to he discrimination,kidnappingrapetorturemutilation and murder that is routinely reported from nations with Muslim majorities.  Neither is there is any significant deadly terrorism in the name of Jesus, as there is in the stated cause of Allah each and every day.  Muslim clerics in the West do not fear for their safety as do their Christian counterparts. 

The "Christian world" and the Islamic world contrast sharply in other ways as well, from the disparate condition of human rights and civil liberties to economic status.  An astonishing 70% of the world's refugees are Muslims -  usually seeking to live in Christian-based countries. 

While Western societies take seriously "scandals" such as Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo (where no one has actually been killed), Muslims routinely turn a blind eye to their own horrible atrocities, even those committed explicitly in the name of Allah.  The Muslim world has yet to offer a single apology for the tens of millions of lives consumed by centuries of relentless Jihad and slavery.

These sharp differences are almost certainly rooted in the underlying religions, which begin with the disparate teachings and examples set by Jesus and Muhammad...

Endless Jihad: The Truth about Islam and Violence

[Article Source: CatholicSay]
Mujahideen prayer in ShultanValleyKunar 1987

It was once a word unfamiliar to American ears. But in recent years it has become all too familiar. The actions of Muslim militants and terrorists have seared the word into American consciousness.

Yet even with thousands of innocent civilians killed on American soil by Islamic terrorists, the full significance of the Muslim concept of jihad has not been g.asped by the American public.

In the days after September 11, 2001, American leaders rushed to portray Islam as a peaceful religion that had been “hijacked” by a fanatical band of terrorists. One hopes that these assurances were merely tactical—that nobody was meant to believe them and that they were meant to assure the Muslim world that the inevitable American reprisals were not directed at their religion as a whole.

If the world Muslim community perceived America as attacking Islam in general then the duty of every Muslim to fight for his religion—the duty of jihad—would have been invoked on a broad scale. The war against terrorism, instead of simmering with occasional flare-ups, like the Cold War, would have boiled over into a global conflagration, with the Muslim countries of the world—1.2 billion strong—mobilizing against America and the West.

Muslim apologists also rushed forward to assure the public that Islam was a peaceful religion. They disingenuously declared that the word Islam means “peace.” And they tried to portray the terrorists as a fringe group outside the mainstream of Islam.

These were lies.

The usual meaning of Islam in Arabic is not “peace” but “submission.” And if the terrorists were so far outside the mainstream, why did Muslims all over the world burst into joyful, spontaneous celebrations when the hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? Why are Islamic governments afraid to show “too much” public support for the war against terrorism? Further, why are all the governments that covertly support terrorism centered in the Muslim world?

BLACK MASS ON CITY PROPERTY DRAWS 1,200 PROTESTERS Catholic worshipers outnumber Satanists

THINK ABOUT IT! Out of so many religions and denominations saying they speak for God, why do you think the Catholic Church is specifically targeted and attacked by the Satanic group? Why Satan is so attracted to attack the Catholic Church? -CD2000

A satanic black mass went off as scheduled Sunday at a city-owned civic center in Oklahoma City, but the number of protesters far outnumbered the Satanists who gathered to worship their “god.”

Between 40 and 50 Satan worshipers attended the black mass at the Oklahoma City Civic Center’s smallest theater, The Oklahoman reported. The event was led by Adam Daniels, a self-professed Satanist who said ceremonies included denouncing Jesus Christ and spitting on holy water that meant to symbolize the Catholic Communion host, Fox News reported.

WND reported last month that the city had given the green light for the black mass to be held in the city-owned civic center, claiming that it was a paid-entry, ticketed event and the Satanists would be treated like any other paying client. The city said it was not in a position, legally, to decide which groups are allowed to use the facility and which are not, as long as the bill gets paid and no city laws or codes are violated.

Previous satanic ceremonies have included sex, urine and nudity in many of the rituals, Daniels told the Tulsa World. But Civic Center spokeswoman Jennifer McClintock told WND last month that the devil worshipers would not be allowed to carry out any activities that violated city codes. All nudity, sex and urination would be strictly forbidden, she said.

The Catholic Diocese of Oklahoma, under Arch Bishop Paul Coakley, pushed hard to get the city to ban the satanic mockery of the church’s Holy Eucharist and more than 215,000 people signed petitions against the event. Coakley agreed to drop a lawsuit he filed against Daniels’ cult when a stolen communion Host was returned to the church.

Having failed to convince the city to ban the event, the church decided to protest it.

An estimated 1,200 Roman Catholics converged onto St. Francis of Assisi Church for a holy hour prayer service from Coakley — and another 400 who couldn’t fit into the congregation stood outside the facility, Fox News reported.

Coakley, in his sermon, said “dark forces” had targeted Oklahoma City, but that Christians shouldn’t fear... read more here!

WE WILL CONQUER ROME AND BREAK YOUR CROSSES... -By Shaykh Abū Muhammad al-‘Adnānī ash-Shāmī

'To Kill in the Name of God is a Great Sacrilege! To Discriminate in the Name of God is Inhuman'

"Authentic religion is a source of peace and not of violence! No one must use the name of God to commit violence! To kill in the name of God is a grave sacrilege. To discriminate in the name of God is inhuman".

Source: CNS Facebook page
ZENIT - Pope Francis said these words today at the Catholic University of "Our Lady of Good Council" of Tirana during a meeting with representatives from various religious communities: Muslim, Bektashi, Catholic, Orthodox, Evangelical and Jewish.

The university was establish in 2004 and "Our Lady of Good Counsel" is the patron of Albania. Students from different faiths attend the athenaeum and it is run by a foundation headed by the religious congregation of the 'Children of the Immaculate Conception. Roughly 500 Italian professors teach at the university's schools of Economy, Pharmaceutical Studies and Medicine.

After recalling that Albania has been a witness of the violence and tragedies caused by the " forced exclusion of God from personal and communal life", the Pope added that "when, in the name of an ideology, there is an attempt to remove God from society, it ends up adoring idols, and very soon men and women lose their way, their dignity is trampled and their rights violated".

The deprival of freedom of conscience and religious freedom, the Pontiff added, wounds and conditions "a humanity that is impoverished because it lacks hope and ideals to guide it."

According to Pope Francis, the return of religious freedom in Albania has made it possible for every community to "to renew traditions which were never really extinguished, despite ferocious persecution". He also said that it allowed for everyone to offer, according their own religious convictions, "a positive contribution; firstly, to the moral reconstruction of the country and then, subsequently, to the economic reconstruction."

"Only faith," Pope John Paul II wrote in a message to the Albanian people, "reminds us that, if we have one Creator, we are therefore all brothers and sisters. Religious freedom is a safeguard against all forms of totalitarianism and contributes decisively to human fraternity".

US Home Security: We must tell the truth about ISIS because President Obama won’t"

And the truth is that ISIS’ core appeal is in its Islamic identity, and it is that identity that makes ISIS so dangerous.

FoxNews - In his address to the nation last week, President Obama declared to the nation — to the world — that ISIS (also known as ISIL, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) was not Islamic.

Across the globe, jaws dropped.

It’s not my purpose today to cite chapter and verse why President Obama is wrong. Pundits have been doing that for days. Instead, I want to focus on the deeper question: Why is ISIS’ Islamic identity critical to its appeal to the Muslim world?

The truth is that ISIS’ core appeal is in its Islamic identity, and it is that identity that makes ISIS so dangerous.

After all, if ISIS isn’t “Islamic,” then tens of thousand of devout young Muslims wouldn’t be flocking to its banner.

If ISIS isn’t “Islamic,” then opposing Islamic militias would swell with the ranks of the faithful, eager to root out the apostates in their midst.

Instead, however, ISIS grows, its various jihadist rivals shrink and the U.S. is under the greatest threat since 9/11.

Understanding ISIS’ Islamic identity is critical to understanding the true dimensions of its appeal to Muslims and its growing international power.

This summer, as the ISIS challenge was just beginning to emerge, I traveled to Oxford University’s Harris Manchester College, along with key members of our American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) “law of war” team. There, we launched an in-depth study of ISIS, its motivations and its capabilities. We turned the papers we created into a book, "Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can’t Ignore."

We combined our academic study with on-the-ground experience in Iraq and years of international legal experience combating jihadists in international tribunals to tell the truth — the whole truth — about ISIS.

And the truth is that ISIS’ core appeal is in its Islamic identity, and it is that identity that makes ISIS so dangerous... continue reading

Muslims are Killing Christians in Middle East

Unreal-Muslims students Wants to remove Jesus from Catholic Schools

Vatican responds to Islamic State threat

IrishTimes - The Vatican has played down renewed reports of a death threat against Pope Francis by Islamic State (IS) militants.

On the eve of the pope’s one-day trip to Albania next Sunday, the Iraqi ambassador to the Holy See, Habeeb Al Sadr, on Saturday told the online version of Rome daily Il Messaggero: “Our intelligence and our analysts suggest this [attack on the pope] could happen.

“We all know how these terrorists think. Their targets are known. I would not rule out them managing to attack him (Pope Francis) . . . I have warned senior people in the Holy See and they know the dangers represented by these terrorist groups.

“After all, the Vatican supports the Iraqi state in its efforts to stop IS.”

However, papal spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told The Irish Times yesterday that the Holy See was unworried by these reported threats, adding: “There is nothing special, nothing extraordinary in this report, nothing new.

“For that reason,” he said, “we will carry on as per normal, we are not worried”

Three weeks ago, Rome daily Il Tempo, citing unnamed Israeli and Italian secret service sources, claimed that Pope Francis hadbecome a target of the Islamic State, within the context of its war on the west.

That speculation was probably sparked by comments made by the Pope on his flight on the way back from a pastoral visit toSouth Korea last month.

Asked if he “approved” of US bombardment of IS forces in Iraq, he replied: “In cases like this, where there is an unjustaggression, then it is licit to halt the aggressor. But I stress ‘halt’. I don’t say bomb, or make war, but rather stop him.”

"I am not the only one suffering from this problem. There are many Meriams in Sudan and throughout the world.” -Meriam Ibrahim

MANCHESTER, AP News- New Hampshire — The Sudanese woman imprisoned for refusing to reject Christianity said in a televised interview airing Monday night that she was resolved to keep her faith even if it meant death.

Meriam Ibrahim, who now lives in Manchester, New Hampshire, was sentenced to death over charges of apostasy, the abandonment of a religion. Her father was Muslim, and her mother was an Orthodox Christian. She married Daniel Wani, a Christian from southern Sudan, in 2011. Muslim women in Sudan are prohibited from marrying non-Muslims, and children must follow their fathers’ religions.

In an interview on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” Ibrahim said she was given three days to recant her faith after being found guilty.

“While I was in prison, some people came to visit me from the Muslim Scholars Association,” she said, according to a transcript provided by Fox ahead of the broadcast. “These were imams that created an intervention by reciting parts of the Koran for me. I faced a tremendous amount of pressure.

“I had my trust in God,” she said. “My faith was the only weapon that I had in these confrontations with imams and Muslim scholars, because that’s what I believe.”

Sudan initially blocked Ibrahim from leaving the country even after its highest court overturned her death sentence in June. The family took refuge at the US Embassy in Khartoum. The family returned to Manchester on Aug. 1.

Manchester, a city of 110,000 residents about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Boston, has been a magnet for immigrants and refugees for decades. There are about 500 Sudanese living in the city.

Ibrahim was pregnant during her imprisonment and said her daughter, Maya, was born under difficult conditions.

“I was supposed to give birth at a hospital outside of prison but they denied that request as well,” she said. “When it was time to give birth, they refused to remove the chains from my ankles. So I had to give birth with chains on my ankles.”

She said in the Fox interview that she refused to bend to her captors’ demands.

“If I did that that would mean that I gave up,” she said. “It’s my right to follow the religion of my choice. I am not the only one suffering from this problem. There are many Meriams in Sudan and throughout the world.”

Muslim: Alak Masama ... Pero Bakit sa Paraiso ng Muslim ay ILOG pa ang Alak?

Muslim: Alak Masama ... Pero Bakit sa Paraiso ng Muslim ay ILOG pa ang Alak?

MAHILIG MANIRA sa Kristiyano ang ilang MUSLIM.

Itong MUSLIM na nagpapakilalang Accept Islam ay nag-post sa Facebook kung saan pinupuna niya ang "PAG-INOM" ng beer ng PARI at MADRE. (tingnan ang SCREEN GRAB)







Basta lang MANIRA ay GAGAWIN ng ilang MUSLIM ang LAHAT.




Anyway, kung MASAMA ang ALAK, BAKIT sa PARAISO ng ISLAM ay UMAAGOS PA na parang ILOG ang ALAK?

QURAN 47:15
The description of Paradise which the Muttaqun (the pious. See V.2:2) have been promised (is that) in it are ... RIVERS OF WINE delicious to those who drink ...



Sabi ng SKOLAR na MUSLIM, ang ALAK sa PARAISO nila "will NEITHER cause them giddiness nor AFFECT THEIR SENSE."

Pero SABI rin ng TAFSIR ng Muslim, ang ALAK ng DIYOS ng ISLAM "will only GIVE PLEASURE and DELIGHT."

Nasaan si Cristo sa loob ng samahang Iglesia Ni Cristo-1914?

Larawang nakatambad sa kanilang website sa http://inc.kabayankokapatidko.org/introduction/. Si Felix Manalo, ang taga-pagtatag; si Eduardo V. Manalo, apo ng tagapagtatag; at si Eraño G. Manalo, anak mismo ng tagapagtatag ng INC. Mula ng itinatag ito ni Felix Manalo noong 1914 ay puro Manalo po ang namumuno rito.

  • NEW ERA ay binaliktad na ERA-ÑO para sa New Era University bilang pagpupugay kay Eraño G. Manalo, na anak ni Felix Manalo
  • EVangelization Mission nila ay pagpupuri kay EVM na si EDUARDO V. MANALO
  • CIUDAD DE VICTORIA naman ay wikang Kastila. Sa tagalog ay LUNGSOD NG MANALO patunay na ang mga MANALO ay may sarili nang lungsod sa probinsiya ng Bulacan.

Muslims Hack and Torture Christian, Demand He Convert. His Response Will Give You Chills

...and these Christians are NOT members of the "true church" - the Iglesia Ni Cristo

NIGERA [MadWorldNews]- Although some unbelievers are lucky enough to simply pay a hefty jizya or receive jail time, many minorities aren’t as fortunate, often suffering agonizing torture before their death.

If you haven’t already guessed, we’re speaking of Islamists and their jihad against “those who Allah hates.”

Such was the case for John Yakuba, a poor Christian in northeastern Nigeria.

After a devastating attack from over 100 Boko Haram insurgents, the streets of Attagara were lined with the bloody bodies of children, most of them carelessly tossed into a ditch.

Churches and children are primary targets. When an elder saw the opportunity to save a 6-year-old boy who was mangled and clinging to life, he picked up the child and fled to a hospital. However, Muslim terrorists stopped him on his way, grabbing the boy from his arms and beheading him. The insurgents then turned on the man and attacked him, leaving him for dead.

Next on their list of victims was Yakuba.

Tuluyan nang NAGPAALAM ang tagong-Ministro ng INC Ni Manalo na si ReadMeINC

Bahagi ng artikulo ng taong Ministro ng INC ni Manalo kung saan siya'y tuluyang namaalam na

Nagpapasalamat din ako dahil naging daan kayo para masagot ang mga tanong ng marami sa INC. Sa bawat pagtuligsa nyo at paghanap sa kasagutan, lalo kong napapatunayan na ang Iglesiang ito ay tunay na sa DIYOS. Maniwala man kayo o hindi, wala po akong personal na galit sa inyo. Kahit pa kay Mr. Abe Arganiosa na madalas gumawa ng kasinungalingan sa Iglesia, at sa iba pa. Kahit pa magkakaiba tayo ng paniniwala, pare pareho parin tayong Pilipino, kaya dapat walang personalan at siraan na nagaganap sa atin. Ipakita natin ang pagiging KRISTYANO natin, sa bawat kasamaan na ating ginagawa tandaan po natin, may ganti dyan ang Diyos, antayin na lang natin.

Talo! Kung baga sa isang laban ay sumuko siya agad!

'Yan lamang ang maaaring nag-impluwensiya kay ReadMeINC isang TAGONG MINISTRO ng INC Ni Manalo.  

Sabi niya wala raw siyang personal na galit kay "Mr. Abe Arganiosa" pero patutsada naman niyang inakusahang "nagsisinungaling" daw si Fr. Abe laban sa Iglesia ni Manalo.

Ang lakas ng loob niyang sabihing "wala po akong personal na galit" kay Fr. Abe.  

Sa katotohanan, sila, sa pagkatao ni ReadMeINC ang may PERSONAL NA GALIT kay Fr. Abe at sa iba pang mga CATHOLIC DEFENDERS sapagkat PERSONAL nila silang inaaway at GUMAGAWA pa nga ng mga BLOGS na gamit ang PERSONAL NA PANGALAN ng mga Catholic Defenders.

Gustuhin man ni Fr. Abe na MAMERSONAL sa mga kaanib ng INC ni Manalo pero NAGTATAGO naman sila sa mga PSEUDONYM tulad ni READMEINC.

Eh si CONRAD J. OBLIGACION, na may-ari ng RESBAK.COM, matapos MABUNYAG ang TUNAY niyang pangalan eh NADUWAG siyang mag-post ng kanyang PERSONAL NA LARAWAN samantalang pinagpipiestahan niya ang mga larawan ng mga kilalang mga Catholic Defenders.

Ang pagbubuking ng mga kaanib ng ADD sa pagkatao ni "Truthcaster" na si Conrad J. Obligacion

May KARUWAGAN ang mga "defenders" ng INC Ni Manalo sapagkat lumalaban sila ng PATAGO at PAILALIM.

Salamat naman sa pamunuan ng INC Ni Manalo at napagtanto niyong patahimikin ang inyong MINISTRO nagre-represent sa inyo ng PATAGO.

Sana, bigyan niyo rin ng leksiyon si CONRAD J. OBLIGACION na may ari ng RESBAK.com. Si ReadMe at si Conrad ay mga kahihiyan ng inyong samahan!

Paalam. Sana ang iyong pagpapaalam ay isang pagninilay na BABALIK KA SA IGLESIANG TATAG NI CRISTO-- ang IGLESIA KATOLIKA!

Canadian Islam teacher with extremist views arrested, recommended for deportation from the Philippines

Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips was entered into the list of people denied entry into the Philippines only on September 5. He is also banned from entering Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Kenya, and the United States.
DAVAO CITY -- The Bureau of Immigration (BI) has blacklisted and recommended the deportation of a Canadian Islam teacher who was arrested for alleged terrorist links.

Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, the imaam and khateeb at Abu Hurairah Center where he teaches five free university-level classes weekly and counsels Muslim families two days per week in Qatar, has been charged for violation of Section 37a2 of the Commonwealth Act No. 613 also known as “The Philippine Immigration Act of 1940.”

Philips has written, translated, and commented on over 50 published books on various Islamic topics and he has also edited and published the 56-book Eemaan English Reading Series for children and Muslim schools.

Dr. Philips has also presented Islamic programs for a number of years on Riyadh Channel 2TV, Sharjah TV, Peace TV, Huda TV, Islam Channel, UK, and the Deen Show, Chicago, USA and GuideUS TV, from Washington USA.

Philips was arrested by the Philippine National Police (PNP XI) on Sunday while he was conducting a lecture in Barangay Maa, this city.

The agency will deport him as soon as the order of the BI Board of Commissioner is issued.

Philips was entered into the list of people denied entry into the Philippines only on September 5. He is also banned from entering Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Kenya, and the United States.

However, he has managed to enter the Philippines particularly Davao City on September 4, 2014 with his family.

Philips is now in the custody of BI. Phillips, who was born Dennis Bradley Philips in Jamaica, is a Canadian Muslim teacher, speaker, and author. Although he’s been based in Qatar, Philips is married to a Filipina from Cotabato City.

Police Regional Office (PRO) XI Chief Supt Wendy Rosario said Philips is a national security threat.

Rosario said Phillips has been reported to have links with a terror group and has been noted for his radical extremism.

According to Rosario, Philips came to the Philippines on an invitation from a certain individual to do lectures.

After Davao, Phillips is also scheduled to conduct a lecture in Zamboanga.

Rosario said three more persons of interest have been invited by PRO XI to answer some questions.

Davao City Police Office (DCPO) Officer-in-Charge Marvin Pepino said Davao is on heightened alert status with Philips presence in the city.

Pepino said security measures are in place to prevent reactions from Philips followers.

Meanwhile, 10th Infantry Division spokesperson Lewellyn Binasoy said Philips is considered a person of interest. He said he could be a threat because his views are heard by others.

While Philips is police case, Binasoy said the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is collaborating with authorities to step up intelligence gathering for reaction on Philips’s arrest.

An Iglesia Ni Cristo Minister Ramil Parba Deceiving their followers

[Mula sa The Splendor of the Church]
Mapapanuod po natin sa videong ito na si Ramil Parba, isang ministro sa Iglesia ni Cristo 1914 ay gumamit ng isang reperensiya para lang tutulan ang isa sa mga talatang ginagamit ng mga naniniwalang ang Panginoong Jesu-Cristo ay Diyos, ang Juan 1:1.


Napanuod po natin na sinipi ni Ramil Parba ang librong, “The Fourth Gospel: Its Significance & Environment at nasa pahina 99 daw…

Ang tanong meron ba talagang nakasulat na ganyan sa pahina 99 ng nasabing libro?

Ito ngayon ang libro…

Tignan po natin sa pahina 99 kung totoo nga ang sinasabi ni Ramil Parba…

Malinaw po na wala sa pahina 99!

So, alam nyo na kung ano ang ibig sabihin nyan. :-)

A Messenger of God is EXPECTED to live a SAINTLY LIFE.. must have a SUPERIOR character

One who claims to be a messenger of God is expected to live a saintly life. He must not be given to lust, he must not be a sexual pervert, and he must not be a rapist, a highway robber, a war criminal, a mass murderer or an assassin. One who claims to be a messenger of God must have a superior character. He must stand above the vices of the people of his time. Yet Muhammad’s life is that of a gangster godfather. He raided merchant caravans, looted innocent people, massacred entire male populations and enslaved the women and children. He raped the women captured in war after killing their husbands and told his followers that it is okay to have sex with their captives (Qur’an 33:50). He assassinated those who criticized him and executed them when he came to power and became de facto despot of Arabia. Muhammad was bereft of human compassion. He was an obsessed man with his dreams of grandiosity and could not forgive those who stood in his way…"
