"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

The Philippine Star: Leader’s wife causing rift in INC?

INFOGRAPHIC: The Manalos of the Iglesia ni Cristo (Rappler)
By Robertzon Ramirez (The Philippine Star) |

MANILA, Philippines - The conflict in the family that leads the influential religious sect Iglesia ni Cristo began even before INC former executive minister Eraño “Ka Erdy” Manalo died in August 2009, an insider said.

The insider recounted that before Eraño died of cardiopulmonary arrest, he allegedly had a misunderstanding with his eldest son Eduardo, the incumbent INC executive minister.

“From what I know, Ka Erdy found out that Ka Eddie’s wife Babylyn was planning to organize a new Iglesia. They were previously evicted from the central office [after the incident],” the source said.

“Ka Babylyn is one of the reasons for this conflict. She is the ally of the Sanggunian (church council) and from what I know, she is their boss,” the source added.

The insider also said that the conflict was one of the reasons Eduardo was rarely seen at the wake of his father.

Eraño died in the arms of Felix Nathaniel “Angel” Manalo, younger brother of Eduardo. Before Eraño died, he told Angel to take care of the INC and all their people, a situation that Angel allegedly thought was his anointment.

There was a rumor that Angel was allegedly trying to take the leadership from Eduardo, but the source clarified that Angel does not want power “because he loves his brother.” Angel only wanted Eduardo to listen to him and “clean the corrupt” practices of the INC council.

But who should be the INC executive minister remains a question.

“We don’t know who would really lead the INC. In 1999, Ka Eduardo was appointed as the deputy executive minister, but Ka Erdy took it away from him when he discovered that his son’s wife was trying to establish a new religious sect,” the source disclosed.

From then on, the conflicts among the Manalo siblings have gotten worse, the insider recounted.

A short video posted on YouTube showed that Angel and his sister Lolita “Lottie” Manalo-Hemedez went to the INC Central Office in February to personally talk to Eduardo through the office of Rene Panoncillo, head of the INC human resource department. But they were told to go home.

“I talked to Ka Gerry and he coordinated with Ka Eduardo. The order of Ka Eduardo was, if you want to obey, you should go home. That’s all he said,” Panoncillo, who was caught on surveillance camera, disclosed.

The source said that Angel had been attempting to talk to Eduardo since 2014, but the “Sanggunian was blocking and doing everything” for him not to see his brother. – With Janvic Mateo

  1. NO TURNING BACK NOW - YOU CAN'T PUT SPILT MILK BACK IN
    THE BOTTLE!!!
    DO NOT ALLOW SANGGUNIAN TO TAKE OVER YOUR CHURCH FOR
    FREE!

    DO NOT GIVE CONTRIBUTION to the church until this problem
    is solved, or else, you are allowing them to continue to
    stay in power, and Angel, Tenny and family are sufffering
    for NO water, NO electricity and NO food.
    Do not allow horrible things to happen to the Manalo
    family, you must act fast enough to save them.

    Let the sanggunian realized that this church belongs to
    all members of the church, and you will not allow the
    family of the FOUNDER to disappear by evil deeds of the
    sanggunian.

    INC members all over the world must
    Demand for Edwardo Manalo to come out and go back to his
    mother and siblings. MOTHER WILL KNOW IF IT IS HIS SON.
    Demand that they all have medical examinations by
    reliable hospitals, not the one at New Era, because that
    is sanggunian hospital, IT'S contaminated!

    When Erdy was sick! and now Edwardo is sick! and Tenny is
    sick! but they do not go to doctors and to the best doctors abroad for
    second opinion, WHY? They can buy airplane for eleven
    billions, but cannot afford hospitals and best doctors for their leaders???
    you must ask WHY??? what are they doing to them???
    Is Manalo bloodline being eliminated? and Edwardo is
    being used so members will remain blind followers.

    THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING, LISTENING, and PRAYING!!!
    FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL.
