The Powerful Glicerio Santos Jr. of the Iglesia Ni Cristo®, who is he?

Part 1: Who is Glicerio Santos Jr in the Iglesia ni Cristo?

[EXCLUSIVE] The elder Eraño Manalo had advised his son Eduardo, now executive minister, to always listen to the good counsel of Santos, also known as 'Kidlat', because he was 'quick to act'

Rappler, MANILA, Philippines – Who is Glicerio Santos Jr and what is his role in the current feud that’s wracking the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC)? Why has his name been dragged into the controversy?

Those sympathetic to the side of INC expelled minister Felix Nathaniel "Angel" Manalo and his mother Cristina "Tenny" alleged it was Santos who alienated INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo from his family.

This was supposedly part of a power play and struggle that saw several old INC officials being kicked out after the death of the former executive minister, Eraño "Ka Erdy" Manalo.

The elder Manalo was known for his austere lifestyle, resisting calls from concerned Iglesia members for him to seek medication when he got ill. INC insiders told Rappler "Ka Erdy" believed that money collected from members should not be spent by him. "Pera ng Diyos (money of God)," as he called it, was not meant for him.

Not long after Eraño’s death, the Iglesia's Sanggunian or Council under the new executive minister Eduardo underwent a purge. Eraño’s other son Angel and his wife Tenny could not do anything about it because Eduardo had already assumed the post of executive minister. The mother had not spoken with the son since then.

Only one of the 12 members survived the Sanggunian shake-up: Glicerio Santos Jr.

Entrusted

“Pinakabilin-bilinan siya ni Ka Erdy (Eraño) kay Ka Eduardo,” said one INC member. (Ka Erdy entrusted him to Ka Eduardo.)

The elder Eraño had advised his son Eduardo to always listen to the good counsel of Santos, who was also known as "Kidlat" because he was “quick to act” and was able to deliver on difficult tasks assigned to him. “If there’s an impossible task, give it to Santos,” the INC member who has contacts with church higher-ups said.

Santos was appointed treasurer and general auditor of the church’s finances. He held considerable power, but to members, he was simply known to be in charge of “pananalapi” or church funds.

Also described as a "bean counter and bureaucrat" by others who knew him, Santos, now about 76 years old, showed a willingness to "adapt to the new leadership," another INC insider said.

He eventually became more entrenched as his own son, lawyer Glicerio Santos IV, became legal counsel of the Iglesia.

Referring to the elder Santos, the other INC member said, "Everyone knows he's the number 2 guy. He is the second most powerful man in the INC." If he isn’t the second most, he is certainly among the most powerful in the governing Council or Sanggunian.

Iglesia members who want to set their church back on the right path said it was Santos who was behind the recent big-ticket projects of the Iglesia (including the grand $200-million Philippine Arena), the purchases of properties both here and abroad, including the abandoned town in South Dakota which was reportedly purchased for $700,000.

His clout extends beyond the INC. Santos wields enough influence that he was reportedly able to intercede for Ja Hoon Ku, a Korean wanted in his country for allegedly embezzling over $200 million from his company. Ja, who was a contractor for the Philippine Arena, had become an Iglesia convert.

The Korean was detained by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) in January 2014 after the Korean embassy sought his arrest and deportation. But he was granted temporary liberty when Malacañang, through Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa, issued an order on March 19 of the same year allowing Ja's provisional liberty – he would be free until August 31, 2014 or until his appeal was resolved..

A report by ABS-CBN said that the BI placed Ja under the custody of Santos as part of Ochoa's order. In the same order, ABS-CBN said that "Glicerio B Santos Jr, General Auditor of the INC, should be required to execute an Affidavit of Undertaking specifying that he will absolutely be responsible for Respondent's custody."

Family enterprise

For this story, we sought to interview INC spokesperson Edwil Zabala but he could not be reached. But in an earlier interview with Rappler, Zabala said Iglesia may hale to court anyone who makes false accusations against the church.

"Sa tamang lugar, sa tamang paraan, ang Iglesia haharap, sasagot kapagka mayroong ipineprisintang pruweba," he said. (The Church will face the allegations at the proper time and if there is evidence being presented.)

The INC chief has reposed his full trust and confidence in Santos bordering on blind faith such that, he may know more about the finances of the INC than the executive minister himself.

If the Manalos are considered by many as the spiritual heads of the INC, Santos and his family – based on official documents – appear to be controlling vital operations of the church.

Consider the following:


Notes about the entities mentioned above:

  • Maligaya Development Corporation is the management arm of the Philippine Arena
  • Felix Y. Manalo Foundation Inc (FYM Foundation) was founded on February 4, 2011, while the Subic Bay-Felix Y. Manalo Foundation Inc was established on May 7, 2012
  • The F.Y. Manalo Medical Foundation operates the New Era General Hospital
  • Unified Livelihood and Advocacy for Development International Inc (Unlad International) is a Quezon City-based NGO that undertakes livelihood projects. It was incorporated on April 25, 2013.
  • The Eraño Manalo Medical Center Inc will be behind the 11-story modern hospital that will be constructed in Ciudad de Victoria in Bulacan
Santos III and Santos IV are sons of Santos Jr, while Anita Santos is his wife.

With 3 already locked votes, they can easliy control decisions on how to run the businesses and non-profit NGOs of the INC. We have verified at least 8 entities where members of the Santos family have a presence.

Latest 2013 financial statements submitted to the SEC showed that the FYM Foundation declared P128,273,658 in fund balances, while its sister company, the Subic Bay-FYM Foundation reported P1,011,763 for the same period.

FYM Medical Foundation declared P20,956,809 in fund balances in 2013, while Unlad International registered a fund balance of P26,213,599. Based on a video posted on the INC's official website, Unlad International has set up training centers on garment manufacturing and eco-farming for INC members, and indigenous communities in various parts of the country.

Maligaya Development Corporation posted a net income of P1,482,599 for 2013. New Era last submitted a financial statement in 2008, when it declared a fund balance of P172,786,318.

But the listings indicate the involvement of the Santoses only in local corporations and foundations. There are more. – with Chay F. Hofileña/Rappler.com

INC Pandora’s Box: Top 6 allegations against Ka Eduardo

Source: Politics.com

Iglesia Ni Cristo Executive Minister Eduardo “Ka Eduardo” Manalo’s official declaration on 23 July 2015 to expel his mother, Cristina “Tenny” Villanueva,his two brothers Felix Nathaniel or “Angel” and Marco Erano, and sister Lolita or “Lottie” did not come as a surprise to the millions of members of the religious sect founded by Manalo’s grandfather, Felix Y Manalo, in 1914.

The schism and purge at the INC had gripped the INC community for months through the blog site, Iglesia ni Cristo: Silent No More, which is managed “Antonio Ramirez Ebangelista” who the Inquirer described as a “deep throat” in the inner sanctum of the organization which turns 101 years old on the same day the President makes his final State of the Nation Address.

Here are the juicy stuff from the Pandora’s box opened by AE:

1) Alleged abduction and torture

The blog site claimed that three long-serving Iglesia brothers were abducted and tortured to force them to spill the beans on who were behind the group fomenting dissension among the INC faithful. Ebangelista also claimed that at least 9 other INC ministers were picked up by Central Office goons from their homes and brought to Camp Karingal in Quezon City. The INC has denied these as mere allegations.

2) Extravagant lifestyle of INC officials

The blog site exposed how ministers under Ka Eduardo’s watch suddenly living a lavish life with their purchase of bigger houses, luxury cars (such as BMWs and Lamborghini) , and expensive bags and other accessories.

3) Bad investment decisions

The conscience group claimed that the INC acquired two helicopters and an Airbus under Ka Eduardo’s watch. Ka Eduardo also pursued the construction of the mammoth Philippine Arena in Bulacan even when the cost has ballooned to $200 million.

4) Fire sale of INC properties

The blog site enumerated properties sold by Ka Eduardo including rest houses in Baguio and Tagaytay, tracts of land in the United States, and a prime property along Roxas Boulevard close to Pagcor City. The INC has defended the sale of these assets claiming that these were idle and that the money could be used for other needs of the INC.

5) Money-spinning ministers

The blog site also made allegations that members of Ka Eduardo’s inner circle had controlled lucrative contracts in the religious organization including the production of uniforms and exclusive concessionaire contracts in INC events..

6) Creation of political liaison office

When Ka Eduardo took over in 2009, he restored the ‘political liaison’ office allegedly under who allegedly served as the go-between the INC and the politicians who want to take advantage of the sect’s bloc voting members.

Politiko welcomes any response or reaction from the INC leadership.

Manalo Family Feud: Eduardo V. Manalo, INC's present Executive Minister disrespects his own mother and family!

ReadMeINC must be hiding in SHAME now that all of what they are afraid to talk in the open finally burst.

This morning, a video of Ka Angel Manalo (Eduardo's younger brother) and Mrs. Tenny Manalo, widow of the late Eraño G. Manalo and the mother of Ka Eduardo V. Manalo, the present Executive Minister, was posted in YouTube asking for help while they are living under threat.



While the video received a few thousand views in the first few hours when it was first posted, as of 4:00 PM, Thursday, 23 July 2015, it has reached 107, 961.

Soon, Rappler picked up story and made it available online.

At noon, one of the most powerful news media in the Philippines made the BREAKING NEWS announcing of the EXCOMMUNICATION of Mrs. Tenny Manalo and Ka Angel Manalo, mother and brother of the present Executive Minister Eduardo V. Manalo.  The announcement was made by INC™'s General Evangelist Bienvenido Santiago (video below is made available by Rappler)



After the announcement was made, major media outlet circulated the same story.
  • NewsInfo: "INC expels mother, brother of Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo"
  • Philstar: "Iglesia ni Cristo expels leader's mother, brother"
  • Rappler: "Sign outside INC building: 'Tulong, hostage kami'"
  • Rappler: "Iglesia ni Cristo head expels mother, brother"
  • GMA News: "Manalo clan's family feud becomes public as Iglesia ni Cristo marks 101st year"
Outside the building of the Iglesia Ni Cristo® in Tandang Sora, a flashsign was seen onto the window saying "TULONG, HOSTAGE KAMI" (Help, we were hostaged).

INC™ members are quick to throw their bitter judgment to the whole Catholic Church when a Catholic priest is accused of doing what is contrary to the doctrines of the Church. But when this issue among the MANALO CLAN was first been made public by a certain KA ANTONIO EBANGELISTA, INC™ didn't accept it as true. Instead, they hurled insulting words against Ka Antonio and his blog was even hacked (http://iglesianicristosilentnomore.wordpress.com) with the caption "This blog is now silent. No More. Iglesia Ni Cristo remains!!!"


That didn't stop Ka Antonio Ebangelista. Instead, he made another blog (http://incsilentnomore.wordpress.com) in July 19, 2015, enumerating the list of INC™ Ministers who were abducted by ARMED MEN, which he believed are members of the SANGUNIAN (Source: INC Silent No More blog)

1. Bro. Nolan Olarte from Cebu is among the 9 ministers abducted.
Updating our list, so far, we have identified the following ministers:
a. Bro. Boyet Menorca, Sorsogon – handcuffed while officiating worship service, white cloth thrown over his head
b. Bro. Joven Sepillo, Tacloban
c. Bro. Nolan Olarte, Cebu

2. Families of abducted ministers are under strict orders to keep their mouths shut or more terrible fate will befall their abducted minister family member.

3. Some brethren have reported seeing Bros. Arnel Tumanan and Jun Samson at the worship service in Templo yesterday, after we’ve reported Bro. Jun’s expulsion and the two of them being under house arrest. DON’T BE FOOLED, brethren. This is a ruse, a trick. Bros. Arnel and Jun were under strict instructions to act normal, as though it were business as usual, so that the brethren would not suspect anything is amiss. They were being watched the whole time. They will even put them on TV if necessary to deceive you. The Sanggunian wants to make me out to be a liar, after I’ve reported on this blog their true situation.

4. Bro. Arnel Tumanan, and Bro. Jerson Samson (who has been expelled) and the 9 abducted ministers, have been moved to a secret location. Bro. Jun Samson was taken as well but afterward, was taken back to the Central compound housing, where he was seen this morning finishing up on packing their belongings.

5. Radel Cortez (I can’t even call you “Brother” anymore), has led all the interrogations and house arrests, venomous words spilling out of his fuming mouth, while ordering the physical beating of the ministers.

6. Ministers and family members were asked to surrender their passports to the Central Office to ensure that they will not be able to leave country should they decide to escape. This is a violation of Republic Act 8239, THE PHILIPPINE PASSPORT ACT OF 1996, Section 11 which reads:

Sec. 11. Ownership of Passports. — A Philippine passport remains at all times the property of the Government, the holder being a mere possessor thereof as long as it is valid and the same may not be surrendered to any person or entity other than the government or its representative: Provided, That a Filipino citizen may voluntarily surrender his/her passport to a Philippine Service Post for storage and safekeeping for which a proper receipt shall be issued for use when reclaiming the passport at a later date.
Ref. http://www.chanrobles.com/republicactno8239.htm#.VarV8_mqqkp

Many INC™ members, including ReadMeINC, defended the group of Mr. JUN SANTOS and their bully Ministers at SANGUNIAN!


Sa pagsesearch ko sa mga kasamahan ni Antonio Ebanghelista, muli akong kinilabutan sa mga nabasa ko.

Ang grupo ni A.E ay samahan ng mga tisod na kapatid at mga tiwalag sa Iglesia.

At isa nga sa mga kilalang taga suporta ni A.E ay si Lito De Luna Fruto, isang tiwalag na ministro ng Iglesia.

Kasama ang ilan pang mga taga kasamahan nila ay pinag uusapan nila ang tagapamahalang pangkalahatan.

At kung iche check nyo ang mga fb accounts nila, iisa lang mababasa ninyo, kung hindi paninira sa IGLESIA ay ang pagpaparinig patungkol sa Ka Eduardo at sa mga nasa Sanggunian.

Kayo na po ang bahalang humusga kung ANO BA TALAGA ANG KANILANG TUNAY NA LAYUNIN. Hindi man sinasabi ni A.E sa kaniyang blog ang tunay niyang motibo ay hindi na maitatago pa ng mga kasamahan niya ang gusto nila mangyari at ang pananaw nila sa Pamamahala sa Iglesia...

Kaya sa ibang kapatid na unti unting napapaniwala sa grupo ni A.E, ang pagsuporta sa kanila ay ang pagsuporta sa lihim nilang motibo.

ReadMeINC, the hiding INC™ MINISTER was caught unaware that today, his beloved INC™ will be exposed of its deep seated feud between the group of the sitting Executive Minister, bullying his OWN MOTHER and his OWN BROTHERS and SISTERS.

What kind of a SON is EDUARDO V. MANALO? His public display of DISRESPECTING his OWN MOTHER and his blood BROTHERS and SISTERS is a violation of the Fourth Commandment God which is "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the Lord your God gives you" (Ex. 20:13; Deut. 5:16)

How could he, the Executive Minister of a religion VIOLATES the very commandments of God?! He should remember that Felix Manalo, treated his OWN MOTHER even they weren't members of his founded church.  As a matter of fact, members of his church acknowledged that truth.


The Reasons Why He Cahnged His Name to "Felix Y. Manalo"

The PASUGO tells us that Brother Felix changed his name to "Felix Y. Manalo" because of his great love and affection for his mother. That he grieved his mother's death so much he decided to used his mother's surname. However, there was another reason why he changed his durname - he and his siblings wanted to have only one surname. Yes! It was not only Brother Felix Y. Manalo that changed his surname, but also his brother and sisters. The four siblings have different surnames - Felix and Praxedes were using "Ysagun" and Baldomero and Fausta were using "Mozo." The father of Felix and Praxedes was Mariano Ysagun, while the father of Baldomero and Fausta was Clemente Mozo. Their mother married twice. So, it is unlikely that Felix and Praxdedes use "Mozo" becuase they are not "Mozos," and it is unlikely that Baldomero and Fausta use "Ysagun" because they are not "Ysaguns." Thus, "Manalo" is the most logical and practical because they are all "Manalos." Brother Felix's siblings indeed used the surname "Manalo." Their records and families attested to this.

If their founder Felix Manalo honored his own mother, why is it that his grandson Eduardo DISHONORS his own mother and brothers and sisters? 

Despicable! Unbecoming of an Executive Minister!

I have no other words to describe Eduardo as I myself love my mother with a true son's love. It will be interesting to watch the upcoming INC™ bloggers's articles what would they say after this news has violently erupted like a dormant volcano.

Let me guess. Those who would defend Ka Eduardo's disrespectful gesture towards his own mother are the ones who are SLAVES OF MONEY. They're cowards. They are afraid to defend the truth. They are afraid to stand up for what is morally right and going against the wishes of Ka Eduardo means, kicking them out of the INC™ Church therefore, leaving behind their salaries, housing, allowances. They are afraid to lose their jobs. Oh paid ministers!

To Ka Tenny Manalo, Ka Angel, Ka Marc, and their two sisters, claim what is yours. You have legitimate children of Ka Erdy, you shouldn't be afraid. Be bold. I believe that you have goodness in you. Use that, and find the light of God's salvation, not in a man-made church founded by your late grandfather but a Church founded by God. 

JESUS IS WAITING FOR YOU IN HIS TRUE CHURCH! If your own church dishonored you and disowned you, there is a CHURCH which is ready to welcome you. But you must DECLARE THAT JESUS IS GOD, and you will surely be saved!

UPDATE on the alleged abduction and disappearance of expelled INC™ Ministers

NEWSFLASH: Updates on Abducted and Expelled Ministers
Source: INC Silent No More
A number of things have happened since we posted the last article. https://incsilentnomore.wordpress.com/2015/07/18/the-tyranny-of-injustice/.

We have been busy trying to sort out the truth from the lies being woven and spread by the wily Sanggunian. If you want the truth, this is where you go. This blog is the official source of news updates on this topic.

Here are the facts (verified true and accurate) as of 7/19/2015 early morning, Philippine time:

1. Bro. Nolan Olarte from Cebu is among the 9 ministers abducted.
Updating our list, so far, we have identified the following ministers:
a. Bro. Boyet Menorca, Sorsogon – handcuffed while officiating worship service, white cloth thrown over his head
b. Bro. Joven Sepillo, Tacloban

2. Families of abducted ministers are under strict orders to keep their mouths shut or more terrible fate will befall their abducted minister family member.

3. Some brethren have reported seeing Bros. Arnel Tumanan and Jun Samson at the worship service in Templo yesterday, after we’ve reported Bro. Jun’s expulsion and the two of them being under house arrest. DON’T BE FOOLED, brethren. This is a ruse, a trick. Bros.

They will even put them on TV if necessary to deceive you. The Sanggunian wants to make me out to be a liar, after I’ve reported on this blog their true situation.

4. Bro. Arnel Tumanan, and Bro. Jerson Samson (who has been expelled) and the 9 abducted ministers, have been moved to a secret location. Bro. Jun Samson was taken as well but afterward, was taken back to the Central compound housing, where he was seen this morning finishing up on packing their belongings.

5. Radel Cortez (I can’t even call you “Brother” anymore), has led all the interrogations and house arrests, venomous words spilling out of his fuming mouth, while ordering the physical beating of the ministers.

6. Ministers and family members were asked to surrender their passports to the Central Office to ensure that they will not be able to leave country should they decide to escape. This is a violation of Republic Act 8239, THE PHILIPPINE PASSPORT ACT OF 1996, Section 11 which reads:

Ref. http://www.chanrobles.com/republicactno8239.htm#.VarV8_mqqkp

It is also a violation of international human rights law which considers freedom of movement an indispensable human right. As per Article 13 of the International Declaration of Human Rights:
Article 13.

(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.
(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.
Ref. http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/

This violation has been reported to the appropriate international agencies. We won’t even waste our time with the INC-controlled Philippine government.

Brethren, let us continue to unite in our vow prayers and let us now unite in action to let as many brethren know all over the world about what is going on in our beloved Church today. They may have limited my resources, I may have to move from place to another, hide in caves if I have to but I will never stop telling the truth and exposing the lies of the Sangunian and the District Ministers and Minsters and Workers they have influenced to do evil and stray away from the righteous teachings we have received from our Lord God. Do not loose hope brethen.

To Radel Cortez and the rest of the corrupt members of the Sanggunian, let me tell you now… BRO. ARNEL TUMANAN IS NOT THE MAN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. NEITHER IS BRO. JUN SAMSON. OR ANY OF THE MINISTERS YOU HAVE ABDUCTED. You have, once again, manifested to everyone your STUPIDITY, RECKLESSNESS, AND DESPERATION. You are scrambling to take anyone, ANYONE at all, whom you suspect might be AE. Well, I AM HE, and you have NOT and will NEVER be able to get me. I am protected by God Almighty, shielded from your evil and murderous clutches. Your days are numbered. God’s patience with you has worn thin!

INC SILENT NO MORE! After INC™ ACTIV department shut down Mr. Antonio Ebangelista's other blog (Pasugo's Former Editor-In-Chief Sacked)!

Finally the Sanggunian of the Iglesia Ni Cristo® shut down the blog of Mr. Antonio Ebangelista at http://iglesianicristosilentnomore.wordpress.com with this caption:

Now, Mr. Antonio Ebangelista is back! INC Silent No More!


PASUGO's Former EDITOR-IN-CHIEF et. al. was allegedly SACKED (?)
Source: INC Silent No More


Bro. Isaias T. Samson Jr., former Editor-in-Chief of Pasugo Magazine, and his wife Myrna, were expelled today, together with Bro. Jerson T. Samson Jr. and his family. Bro. Isaias and Jerson are brothers, both faithful and honest ministers, who have served the Church for a very long time. Bros. Radel V. Cortez and Matt Pareja led the house arrest and the interrogation. Reports have surfaced that the Samson brothers were both tortured and harmed physically in a futile attempt to get a confession.

Another minister, Bro. Arnel Tumanan, has been placed under house arrest. Bro. Arnel was General Secretary, a member of the Sanggunian, during the time of our late Executive Minister, Bro. Erano G. Manalo. He is loved and adored by brethren, including Bro. Erano himself. He is reported to have been kicked and abused during the interrogation led by Bro. Radel V. Cortez.

A truly sad day for the Church when ministers turns against other ministers so that their evil ways are not further exposed. Innocent after innocent ministers who have served the current and past Administrations with all faithfulness, who have given their lives and energy for the Church, are being punished because they are suspected of being me, or helping me, or sympathizing with the family of the late Bro. Erano G. Manalo. All three “crimes” are punishable by expulsion, and worse, DISAPPEARANCE OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH!

As some of you may know by now, 9 of our Ministers, Workers and other brethren suspected of being either me, Antonio Ebangelista, or are helping me, have been dragged from their homes and held captive on orders from the Central Office. The ministers were abducted by armed men, some of them, INC and some not, but all without conscience, animals who cannot differentiate right from wrong. They only see what they hope to gain, financially and otherwise, from this heinous act against men of God.

The 9 others were taken from Sorsogon, Meycauayan, Cebu, and elsewhere and now, believed to have been moved to Camp Karingal in Quezon City. One of the 9 has been identified as Bro. Boyet Menorca, son of the late Bro. Lowell Menorca, former Administrative Secretary of the Sanggunian during Ka Erano G. Manalo’s Administration.

How swiftly the wheels of injustice moved, in this case, only 1 day after the appointment of a new PNP chief in the person of Ricardo Marquez, whom the INC has lobbied hard for.

My heart cries out for these innocent co-ministers, workers and brethren who are being treated worse than criminals — tortured, interrogated, and held against their will. They were arrested without warrants, their homes violated, their properties trampled on, gadgets stolen, their families traumatized, their close friends interrogated and watched. There is no human law to protect them because that law has been bought – yes, suspension of justice in exchange for votes and INC support this coming election.

First, they had Lito Fruto abducted, again without warrant, and then charged with made-up lies. Bro. Lito was expelled in April 2015 for helping the family of Bro. Erano and because he was making noise about his intimate knowledge of corruption inside the Church. Bro. Lito is out on bail but there are orders from the Central Office to “put him away”. It will be no surprise if he sings to their tune due to fear for his safety and his life in no time.

Now these 10 innocent ministers are being made to endure torture and illegal detention inside a government facility. There are overt threats that other brethren suspected of assisting me, will be next.

These reports continue to come my way that after AE, the family of Bro. Erano G. Manalo will be the final target. They are now heavily guarded by men sent by the Sanggunian, not to protect them, but to make sure they won’t be able to escape. What they have planned for them, I cannot begin to describe, so allow me to quote the report in Tagalog.

“Nais po naming ipaalam sa lahat na dumating na po sa sukdulan ang pagpaplano ng kasamaan laban sa buong Iglesia. Ipinagmalasakit po ng isang kapamatok na nakasama sa isang natatanging pulong na ipaalam sa amin ang kasalukuyang plano at ito ay ang mga sumusunod:

Magpapakalat ang Sanggunian ng mga mali, katha at masasamang balita laban sa pamilya ng KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO. Kakasangkapanin nila sa pagpapakalat ng mga maling impormasyon ang lahat ng mga ministro, manggagawa at mga maytungkulin sa mga lokal sa buong mundo.

KAPAG NATIYAK NA PO NILA NA NALILITO NA ANG MGA KAPATID SA KUNG ANO AT KUNG SINO ANG PANINIWALAAN, AY KANILA NA PONG ISASAGAWA ANG SABAY-SABAY NA PAGDUKOT SA LAHAT NG MGA ANAK AT MGA APO NG KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO UPANG WALANG MAGIGING HADLANG SA MGA SUSUNOD PA NILANG MGA PLANO SA IGLESIA.

SA SIMULA, KANILANG DADALHIN ANG PAMILYA NG KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO SA ISANG LIBLIB NA LUGAR NA KANILANG INIHAHANDA NGAYON NGUNIT DOON AY UNTI-UNTI NILANG PABABAYAAN MAGING SA PAGKAIN HANGGANG SA SILA AY MAGKASAKIT AT MAMATAY.

KAPAG KANILA NANG NAIKULONG ANG LAHAT NG PAMILYA NG KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO AY ISUSUNOD NA NILA ANG KANILANG HULING PLANO SA IGLESIA”

To those in government who still have a conscience and to members of the press who still respect their obligation to report the truth, free of censorship, I pose this challenge. Help us in our fight for justice. Help us expose these outright violation of human rights. Help us stop these heinous acts. Help us reveal the corruption inside and outside the Iglesia ni Cristo. Insist on a true separation of Church and State. (Read More)

Alleged abduction and disappearance of some INC™ members (?)

I, as a Catholic, am not rejoicing in what's allegedly happening within the INC™ of Felix Manalo. But justice in the spirit of our common humanity have to share with my readers what we can do to cast LIGHT wherever there is DARKNESS.

CHRISTIANS may become ONE -- SOON!

Non-Christian churches who professes another "Jesus" such as the Iglesia Ni Cristo (founded by Felix Manalo), the Mormons (Founded by Joseph Smith) and the Jehovah's Witnesses (founded by Charles T. Russel) should be very worried if this UNIFICATION of CHRISTIANS will be realized. Although still some Protestants vehemently oppose to this plans, it's only a matter of TIME when the HOLY SPIRIT will move and make us ONE, under the VICAR OF CHRIST on earth - the POPE! 
Rick Warren meeting Pope Francis at the Vatican; and a Muslim (Shiite) Imam praying with the Pope
Protestant Leaders Declare Reunification of Churches Under the Holy See

VATICAN CITY (24/7 News)– Following more than five hundred years of separation, American and European Protestant leaders met with Pope Francis last week to finalize the reunification of the two churches under the Holy See. The historic agreement is the result of a year’s worth of unpublicized talks between Protestant leaders and the Vatican.

Prominent American pastors Joel Osteen and Rick Warren, respectively, as well as Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, were among the Protestant delegation that met with Pope Francis last week. Pastor Warren, founder of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, spoke with members of the international press in St. Peter’s Square, saying, “Protestants, as a people, have a long history of heresy. The time for reconciliation is now in order to ensure a full and dogmatic transition into the folds of the Church.”

Moments before meeting with reporters, the entire Protestant delegation, for the first time ever, entered the confessional to take part, individually, in the Sacrament of Penance. “It’s important that we participate in these sacred rituals before asking our congregation to do the same,” Pastor Osteen said, adding that his time in confession was “an immensely moving experience.”

As Protestants around the world make the transition to Catholicism, many are wondering what, exactly, that means for them. “First and foremost we acknowledge the Pope’s infallibility with regard to universal moral declarations, the authority of Church magistrate, faith, and ex cathedra,” said Father Cliff Brogan, a former Protestant pastor who was the first of the delegation to be ordained as a priest at the Vatican. “Secondly, we participate in the sacrament of the Eucharist by accepting the actual body and blood of Christ, an event known as Transubstantiation, at the conclusion of the holy mass.”

As part of their induction into the Catholic faith, all Protestants above the age of fifteen are required to undergo a Catholic Confirmation, one of three sacraments of initiation, out of seven total, which Catholics can receive. “Most, if not all, of us have been baptized,” said Father Brogran. “However, without formal Confirmation, our Protestant baptisms will be null, thus preventing us from entering the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Additionally, during the transition period, American Protestant families whose children attend Sunday School are to receive vouchers allowing them to participate in CCD programs at area Catholic churches.

In a show of support for the reunification under the Holy See, the United Kingdom announced Wednesday that it is taking steps to reunify Northern Ireland with The Republic of Ireland. The government of the UK has acknowledged the stark differences between the two countries, but according to one official, “We are, for the first time, one people, united under the Bishop of Rome, acting together as the bride and servant of Christ.”

Kanino nga ba ang Iglesia Ni Cristo® sa Pilipinas?

Simpleng tanong at simpleng sagot.

Ayon sa rehistro nito sa SEC (Securities and Exchange Commissions) ang Iglesia Ni Cristo (o Iglesia Ni Kristo) si Felix Manalo ang nagparehistro ng Iglesia Ni Kristo, Inc, at saka nilagdaan.


Ayon sa mga Journalists or Mamamahayag, si Felix Manalo raw po ang nagtatag ng Iglesia Ni Cristo®!

And PASUGO confirmed it!

PASUGO Agosto-Setyembre 1964, p. 5
“Kailan napatala sa Pamahalaan o narehistro ang INK sa Pilipinas? Noong Hulyo 27, 1914. Tunay nga na sinasabi sa rehistro na si Kapatid na F. Manalo ang nagtatag ng INK."

Kaya dahil diyan, hindi kataka-taka na ang mga gusaling tinatayo, o mga tanggapan, o opisina ay nakapangalan sa kung sino ang MAY-ARI ng Iglesia Ni Cristo®!

Distorted History by Muslims: 1001Islamic Inventionss??? And how Muslims destroyed classical civilization!

Why We Are Afraid, A 1400 Year Secret, by Dr Bill Warner




Islamic Inventions were Roman, Greek and Persian.

Uploaded by Ralph Ellis

According to conventional wisdom Islam was a civilized and enlightened creed during the Dark Ages, while the Christian world was wallowing in depravity and ignorance. Islam was, therefore, the guardian and savior of all ancient science, knowledge and wisdom. But that is not true in the slightest. Islam took over many highly educated and highly advanced regions of the Byzantine Empire, at the point of the sword, and forced whole populations to convert to Islam. There were many sects in those times, just like the Alawi, Alevi, Ahmadiyya, Su, Druze and Ishmailis of the modern era, who adopted a cloak of Islam to avoid persecution and death. Those who refused to change their beliefs were forced to live as dhimmis - they were effectively reduced to serfdom in their own lands. The Jewish, Christian and Sabaean dhimmis of the East did the work and paid the taxes, while their Muslim overlords ran the administration and army, and lived in comparative luxury. This is how dhimmi unbelievers have to live in a Muslim controlled society, as the long-suffering Christians of Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey fully understand. Christians don’t bother complaining that their Muslim neighbour has wronged them, because the social and legal system will not help them in the slightest. Even in supposedly modern and Westernised Turkey, a friend of many years whispered that he was not really Muslim but had to say that he was to keep his job. He made me swear not to tell anyone, that his family had been secret Christians for generations. (Read more here)

Kawani ng INC™ Central, sumulat kay G. Antonio Ebangelista upang isiwalat ang nalalamang di umano'y anumalya


Noong nakaraang taon lamang ay nagdaos ng magarbong ika-100 Foundation Anniversary ang Iglesia Ni Cristo® sa kanilang "Philippine Arena" sa Santa Maria-Bocaue Bulacan sa tinawag nilang  "CIUDAD DE VICTORIA" (Español ng "LUNGSOD NG MANALO") na dinaluhan ng kanilang mga kaanib.

Heto's wala pang isang taon ay kabilaan na ang mga paratang ni G. Antonio Ebangelista sa kanilang General Auditor ng pagmamalabis sa pananalapi.  Proyekto rito proyekto roon. At dumadami ang kanilang mga "fund raising" activities.

Ayon pa kay G. Antonio Ebangelista, may 40 Milyong Piso pang utang ang Philippine Arena sa Meralco dalawang buwan na ang nakalilipas.

Nariyan ang pagbebenta raw ng mga ari-arian at lupain, dito sa Pilipinas at sa ibang bansa na pag-aari ng INC™ ni Manalo-- lahat sa desisyon ng isang tao-- walang iba kundi ang Ka Jun Santos (Glicerio Santos Jr) na ayon sa nagtatagong Ministro ay utak sa mga anomalya sa loob ng Iglesia Ni Cristo® (basahin ang blog ni G. Antonio Ebangelista mula sa simula -- ang "Iglesia Ni Cristo Silent No More" blog).

Bakit kaya napakalakas ng impluwensiya ng Ka Jun Santos sa loob ng Iglesia Ni Cristo®? Bakit hindi man lang siya nabibigyan ng sanctions ng Executive Minister? Hindi ba't nakakapagtataka kung bakit nga "untouchable" siya?

Sino nga ba ang Ka Jun Santos?

Ayon sa blog na Philippine Taxpayer, kung si Ka Jun Santos na sinasabi nilang General Auditor at si G. Glicerio Santos Jr. ay iisa, malamang na siya raw ang tinutukoy sa bulung-bulungan na "illigitimate son" daw ni Felix ManaloKung magkagayon, ang Ka Jun Santos ay tiyuyin pala ng Ka Eduardo? Pero, wala pa namang  patunay na totoo ang mga usapin na 'yan kaya hindi maaaring bigyan ng mabigat na dahilan.

Narito na naman ang panibagong pagbubunyag ng isang kaanib ng INC™ ni Manalo na hindi na natatahimik ang konsensiya sa kabi-kabilaang anomalya "VOICE OF THE BRETHREN: PHP 19.95 MILLION UNPAID TO A SUPPLIER FOR THE INC MUSEUM PROJECT"


Ito po ay sulat ng isang kapatid na nagtatago sa pangalang “Lovely Rose”. Siya po ay isang kawani sa Tanggapan ng Central. Makikita nyo po sa ibaba nito ang actual na email na ipinadala niya kasama na po lahat ng supporting documentation sa kaniyang isiniwalat.

Time to Roll-up our sleeves for the Crusades!

Just as how the first Crusades were initiated, we need another Crusades to drive out the soldiers of Satan from advancing in our lands killing all our men and raping our women.  Christ battled with Satan so must we battle with his minions-- the Muslim terrorists!

hristian militia that is now rising in Iraq to attack ISIS, all wearing wooden crosses.
Hundreds Of Christians Form A Huge Militia And Are Now About To Attack ISIS And They Will Continue To Attack ISIS Until They Retake Their Homes And Towns And Until They Retake The Whole City Of Mosul

By Ted on July 2, 2015 in Featured, General


A large and valiant militia, consisting of hundreds of Christians, has been formed to fight against the Islamic persecution and invasion of Christian lands in Iraq. They number in the dozens, they adorn themselves with crosses hanging from their necks, they have denied the self, they are filled with contrition, they are ready to fight the enemies of God, their hearts are prepared to endure holy war, their minds are set on the precepts of Heaven, their very beings are taken by the Word of God, “piercing even to the division of soul and spirit” (Hebrews 4:12). They call themselves the “Ketaeb Babylon.”

According to another Ketaeb Babylon commander, there are “hundreds of Christian fighters located now in various areas of Salaheddin… in addition to others responsible for protecting churches in Baghdad province.” As hundreds have already been recruited, the numbers of volunteers to “fight the Daesh (ISIS) terrorist organization” is continuing, he said.

They hang around their necks wooden crosses, just as the Crusaders of old did when — in the old relic of Christendom — the Christians placed the Cross on their chests and on their shoulders, beautifully manifesting the words of Christ: “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” (Mark 8:34)

They are training to retake their homes that were captured by ISIS in areas in like Mosul which was captured last year. When the heretic Muslims overtook Christian neighborhood and areas, they were given the choice to convert, leave, pay the tax, or die. Most of them fled, but some wanted to fight back, and these are the men who are determined to take up the whip and the Cross, to strike the thieves of lives and those who prey upon souls, and drive them away from the holy Temple of God, that is, the Body of Christ, “the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you” (1 Corinthians 6:19). In fact, the majority of the “Ketaeb Babylon” unit are from Mosul.

The militia trains in a military base near the Baghdad airport, and some Muslims are actually training them on how to use the AK-47, and how to utilize basic combat maneuvers. But this does not mean that they forget Christianity, for as they present themselves in their military parades, they cry out to the mother of our Hope, chanting Ya Mariam (Oh, Mary!).

Now, why would they do this? The wife of Ahasuerus, Esther, commanded the death of Haman, Jael, the mother of Barak, “blessed be she in her tent” (Judges 5:24), struck the head of Sisera with a nail, and Deborah exhorted Barak to fight the enemies of God, and Mary, whose Seed — Jesus Christ — shall bruise the head of the old serpent (Genesis 3:15), and whose image was hoisted above the ship in the Battle of Lepanto, when the Christians crushed the Muslims, told our Lord, “They have no wine.” (John 2:3)

And as Christ transformed the water to wine, ocean of peoples who are His enemies “shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation” and they shall be thrown “into the great winepress of the wrath of God.” (Revelation 14:19-20)

So as Mary was the one who requested more wine, so shall she be with Christ in the day when He makes the oceans of His enemies into blood. For the Scripture says, “the Lord my God will come, And all the saints with You.” (Zechariah 14:5) And the Apostle speaks of “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.” (1 Thessalonians 3:13). Would not Mary be among the saints, and would she not — by her very actions and Faith — have a great position amongst the saints, having gathered so many treasures in Heaven? So then these Christian militants, as the Christian warriors of old, express their honor towards Mary, the mother of our Salvation.

One of the Christian soldiers, 17-year-old Chaldean Christian Frank Samir, made it every clear that this battle against the Muslim terrorists is a holy war:

"We heard that the Christians had an opportunity for jihad (holy war), and we all came and volunteered… Our children are dying; our Christian families were displaced. How do we ourselves accept that people say the Christians are not fighting? On the contrary, we want to fight everywhere"

Notice how they use the word “jihad.” Now, this does not mean that the Christians took a Muslim word, or that they adopted the Islamic concept of holy war. No. It is only another indication that the Muslims took the idea of holy war from Christianity, and applied it to themselves. The original jihad (or the idea of holy war or struggle against the enemies of God) was a Christian concept. Islam, being a Christian heresy, took this concept and gave it an Arabic word, and advanced their own heresy through the use of holy war. Christianity has holy war, but it is for righteousness. Islam has holy war, but it is for evil.

Fares Issa, aged 38, said:

"I did not hesitate to volunteer with my brothers to fight Daesh (ISIS) …I will continue fighting (them) until the liberation of Mosul and their expulsion from all the areas of Ira"

In their training center the Christians display a large Cross, and alongside the Cross are the words: “God is greatest” and “There is no god but God.”

There are nine training courses, and each course is two weeks. Rayan al-Kaldani, the secretary general of Ketaeb Babylon, said:

"The main aim of forming our forces is the liberation of Mosu… We took part in the operations to liberate the city of Tikrit and other operations, including Baiji, in Salaheddin provinc"

According to Kaldani, the Christian soldiers are under the command of Abu Mahdi al-Mohandis, who is amongst the top commanders in the “Popular Mobilisation” forces, which consists mainly of Shiite fighters.

One commander who calls himself Hajji Ali, a leader of one of the Shiite units said that the training “focuses on close-quarters combat, unconventional warfare and war inside the cities. …Their eyes are on Mosul and the areas occupied by Daesh”.

The volunteers say Mosul is the main goal, but their fight is not limited to that city.
Mosul “is our first aim,” said 16-year-old Raymoun Salwan, who was displaced from the city.
But “I will continue to fight terrorism wherever it goes in Iraq and every place,” he said.

We have to prepare our minds and intellect for this spiritual war that we are in. This is why I made a 2-disk DVD series on teaching the warring spirit of the Christian Faith.
