"To insist, then, and believe that the Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, is God is clearly to contradict the statement of God Himself, of our Lord Jesus, too, as well as that of the apostles." -PASUGO God's Message, April 2014, p. 5 (by Dennis C. Lovendino)
How could the Iglesia Ni Cristo® be so sure of their teachings when they were not even present during the time of the apostles? Nor they were there when they were martyred? Where were they when the apostles preached the Gospel of Christ to unbelievers without any versions of Bible INC™ Ministers collect? Where were they when these apostles and disciples handed over their apostolic responsibilities to their lawful SUCCESSORS just as how Felix Manalo handed over his legal succession to his ow son Eraño G. Manalo and how Ka Erdy handed over his succession to his very own son Eduardo V. Manalo?
How they are SO HARD on our Catholic teachings on APOSTOLIC SUCCESSION when they themselves teaches to respect, obey and honor the lawful successor of Felix Manalo-Eraño and Eduardo?
That's very hypocritical of them!
PASUGO God's Message, "1st District Ministers' Conference for 2012: Executive Minister Highlights Value of Obedience as Key to Church's Success", p. 12-13 (written by Norman A. Reyes)
"...Brother Eduardo disproved the wrong notion that one can still succeed even if he violates the will of God. He added that all Church workers should also obey the instructions handed down by the Church Administration..."
"Brother Eduardo cited the experience of the first-century Church Of Christ which grew tremendously when all the members submitted themselves completely to God and the Church Administration."
They themselves say that "members (of the First-Century Church) submit themselves completely to God" and their successors, so how could the WHOLE Church completely APOSTATIZED if they had remained faithful and obedient to the Apostles and their lawful successors? And how we are certain that Felix Manalo and his successors are APOSTOLICALLY ordained when Felix Manalo wasn't even a breathe away from the time of the original apostles of Jesus?
Which of the Apostles of Jesus was a member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo®? I wonder how each of the paid Ministers of Manalo would try to justify those lies perpetuated by their fake messenger Felix Y. Manalo that they are the original Church?!
If you believe that Eduardo V. Manalo is the lawful successor of Felix Manalo, why is it so hard for you to believe that Pope Francis is the lawful successor of the Apostle Peter when the proof are all there available for your objective na pagsusuri?
We have unbroken line of successors from the Apostle Peter to Pope Francis, therefore the Catholic Church is a living witness to that apostolic succession which you employed in your doctrine of Tagapamahalang Pangkahalatan!
Any apostle who lawfully appointed Felix Y. Manalo to be as such?
