On the ‘Iglesia ni Cristo’ Church

The Iglesia ni Cristo (Tagalog, “Church of Christ”) claims to be the true Church established by Christ. Felix Manalo, its founder, proclaimed himself God’s prophet. Many tiny sects today claim to be the true Church, and many individuals claim to be God’s prophet. What makes Iglesia ni Cristo different is that it is not as tiny as others.

Since it was founded in the Philippines in 1914, it has grown to more than two hundred congregations in sixty-seven countries outside the Philippines, including an expanding United States contingent. The Iglesia keeps the exact number of members secret, but it is estimated to be between three million and ten million worldwide. It is larger than the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a better known sect (which also claims to be Christ’s true Church). Iglesia is not better known, despite its numbers, because the majority of Iglesia’s members are Filipino. Virtually the only exceptions are a few non-Filipinos who have married into Iglesia families.

The organization publishes two magazines, Pasugo and God’s Message, which devote most of their energies toward condemning other Christian churches, especially the Catholic Church. The majority of the Iglesia’s members are ex-Catholics. The Philippines is the only dominantly Catholic nation in the Far East, with eighty-four percent of its population belonging to the Church. Since this is its largest potential source of converts, Iglesia relies on anti-Catholic scare tactics as support for its own doctrines, which cannot withstand biblical scrutiny. The Iglesia tries to convince people of its doctrines not by proving they are right, but by attempting to prove the Catholic Church’s teachings are wrong.

 

Is Christ God?

 

The Catholic teaching that most draws Iglesia’s fire is Christ’s divinity. Like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Iglesia claims that Jesus Christ is not God but a created being.

Yet the Bible is clear: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). We know Jesus is the Word because John 1:14 tells us, “The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.” God the Father was not made flesh; it was Jesus, as even Iglesia admits. Jesus is the Word, the Word is God, therefore Jesus is God. Simple, yet Iglesia won’t accept it.

In Deuteronomy 10:17 and 1 Timothy 6:15, God the Father is called the “Lord of lords,” yet in other New Testament passages this divine title is applied directly to Jesus. In Revelation 17:14 we read, “They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings.” And in Revelation 19:13–16, John sees Jesus “clad in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. . . . On his thigh he has a name inscribed, King of kings and Lord of lords.”

The fact that Jesus is God is indicated in numerous places in the New Testament. John 5:18 states that Jewish leaders sought to kill Jesus “because he not only broke the Sabbath but also called God his Father, making himself equal with God.” Paul also states that Jesus was equal with God (Phil. 2:6). But if Jesus is equal with the Father, and the Father is a God, then Jesus is a God. Since there is only one God, Jesus and the Father must both be one God—one God in at least two persons (the Holy Spirit, of course, is the third person of the Trinity).

The same is shown in John 8:56–59, where Jesus directly claims to be Yahweh (“I AM”). “‘Your father Abraham rejoiced that he was to see my day; he saw it and was glad.’ The Jews then said to him, ‘You are not yet fifty years old, and you have seen Abraham?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.’ So they took up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple.” Jesus’ audience understood exactly what he was claiming; that is why they picked up rocks to stone him. They considered him to be b.aspheming God by claiming to be Yahweh.

The same truth is emphasized elsewhere. Paul stated that we are to live “awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13). And Peter addressed his second epistle to “those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours in the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Pet. 1:1).

Jesus is shown to be God most dramatically when Thomas, finally convinced that Jesus has risen, falls down and exclaims, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28)—an event many in Iglesia have difficulty dealing with. When confronted with this passage in a debate with Catholic Answers founder Karl Keating, Iglesia apologist Jose Ventilacion replied with a straight face, “Thomas was wrong.”

 

God’s Messenger?

 

A litmus test for any religious group is the credibility of its founder in making his claims. Felix Manalo’s credibility and, consequently, his claims, are impossible to take seriously. He claimed to be “God’s messenger,” divinely chosen to re-establish the true Church which, according to Manalo, disappeared in the first century due to apostasy. It was his role to restore numerous doctrines that the Church had abandoned. A quick look at Manalo’s background shows where these doctrines came from: Manalo stole them from other quasi-Christian religious sects.

Manalo was baptized a Catholic, but he left the Church as a teen. He became a Protestant, going through five different denominations, including the Seventh-day Adventists. Finally, Manalo started his own church in 1914. In 1919, he left the Philippines because he wanted to learn more about religion. He came to America, to study with Protestants, whom Iglesia would later declare to be apostates, just like Catholics. Why, five years after being called by God to be his “last messenger,” did Manalo go to the U.S. to learn from apostates? What could God’s messenger learn from a group that, according to Iglesia, had departed from the true faith?

The explanation is that, contrary to his later claims, Manalo did not believe himself to be God’s final messenger in 1914. He didn’t use the last messenger doctrine until 1922. He appears to have adopted the messenger doctrine in response to a schism in the Iglesia movement. The schism was led by Teogilo Ora, one of its early ministers. Manalo appears to have developed the messenger doctrine to accumulate power and re-assert his leadership in the church.

This poses a problem for Iglesia, because if Manalo had been the new messenger called by God in 1914, why didn’t he tell anybody prior to 1922? Because he didn’t think of it until 1922. His situation in this respect parallels that of Mormonism’s founder Joseph Smith, who claimed that when he was a boy, God appeared to him in a vision and told him all existing churches were corrupt and he was not to join them, that he would lead a movement to restore God’s true Church. But historical records show that Smith did join an inquirer’s class at an established Protestant church after his supposed vision from God. It was only in later years that Smith came up with his version of the “true messenger” doctrine, proving as much of an embarrassment for the Mormon church as Manalo’s similar doctrine does for Iglesia.

 

Iglesia Prophesied?

 

A pillar of Iglesia belief is that its emergence in the Philippines was prophesied in the Bible. This idea is supposedly found in Isaiah 43:5–6, which states, “Fear not, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you; I will say to the north, ‘Give up,’ and the south, ‘Do not withhold; bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth.’”

Iglesia argues that in this verse, Isaiah is referring to the “far east” and that this is the place where the “Church of Christ” will emerge in the last days. This point is constantly repeated in Iglesia literature: “The prophecy stated that God’s children shall come from the far east” (Pasugo, March 1975, 6).

But the phrase “far east” is not in the text. In fact, in the Tagalog (Filipino) translation, as well as in the original Hebrew, the words “far” and “east” are not even found in the same verse, yet the Iglesia recklessly combine the two verses to translate “far east.” Using this fallacious technique, Iglesia claims that the far east refers to the Philippines.

Iglesia is so determined to convince its followers of this “fact” that it quotes Isaiah 43:5 from an inexact paraphrase by Protestant Bible scholar James Moffatt that reads, “From the far east will I bring your offspring.” Citing this mistranslation, one Iglesia work states, “Is it not clear that you can read the words ‘far east’? Clear! Why does not the Tagalog Bible show them? That is not our fault, but that of those who translated the Tagalog Bible from English—the Catholics and Protestants” (Isang Pagbubunyag Sa Iglesia ni Cristo, 1964:131). The Iglesia accuses everyone else of mistranslating the Bible, when it is Iglesia that is taking liberties with the original language.

 

The Name Game

 

Iglesia points to its name as proof it is the true Church. They argue, “What is the name of Christ’s Church, as given in the Bible? It is the ‘Church of Christ.’ Our church is called the ‘Church of Christ.’ Therefore, ours is the Church Christ founded.”

Whether or not the exact words “Church of Christ” appear in the Bible is irrelevant, but since Iglesia makes it an issue, it is important to note that the phrase “Church of Christ” never once appears in the Bible.

The verse Iglesia most often quotes on this issue is Romans 16:16: “Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you ” (Pasugo, November 1973, 6). But the phrase in this verse is “churches of Christ.” And it’s not a technical name. Paul is referring to a collection of local churches, not giving an organizational name.

To get further “proof” of its name, Iglesia cites Acts 20:28: “Take heed therefore . . . to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood” (Lamsa translation; cited in Pasugo, April 1978). But the Lamsa translation is not based on the original Greek, the language in which the book of Acts was written. In Greek, the phrase is “the church of God” (tan ekklasian tou Theou) not “the church of Christ” (tan ekklasian tou Christou). Iglesia knows this, yet it continues to mislead its members.

Even if the phrase “church of Christ” did appear in the Bible, it would not help Iglesia’s case. Before Manalo started his church, there were already groups calling themselves “the Church of Christ.” There are several Protestant denominations that call themselves Church of Christ and use exactly the same argument. Of course, they aren’t the true Church for the same reason Iglesia isn’t—because they were not founded by Christ.

 

Did Christ’s Church Apostatize?

 

The doctrines upon which all Iglesia’s other doctrines depend is its teaching that Christ’s Church apostatized in the early centuries. Like Mormonism, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and other fringe groups, Iglesia asserts that the early Christian Church suffered a total apostasy. It believes in “the complete disappearance of the first-century Church of Christ and the emergence of the Catholic Church” (Pasugo, July-Aug. 1979, 8).

But Jesus promised that his Church would never apostatize. He told Peter, “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). If his Church had apostatized, then the gates of hell would have prevailed against it, making Christ a liar.

In other passages, Christ teaches the same truth. In Matthew 28:20 he said, “I am with you always even until the end of the world.” And in John 14:16, 18 he said, “And I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you forever … I will not leave you desolate.”

If Iglesia members accept the apostasy doctrine, they make Christ a liar. Since they believe Jesus Christ is not a liar, they are ignoring what Christ promised, and their doctrine contradicts Scripture.

They are, however, fulfilling Scripture. While Jesus taught that his Church would never apostatize, the Bible does teach that there will be a great apostasy, or falling away from the Church. Paul prophesies: “[Do not] be quickly shaken in mind or excited . . . to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way; for that day will not come, unless the rebellion [Greek: apostasia] comes first” (2 Thess. 2:2–3); “Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by giving heed to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Tim. 4:1); and, “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own liking, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths” (2 Tim. 4:3–4). By falling away from the Church, members of Iglesia are committing precisely the kind of apostasy of which they accuse the Catholic Church.

The Bible tells us in 1 John 4:1: “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” Was Felix Manalo a true prophet? Is his church the “true Church?” If we test the claims of Iglesia ni Cristo, the answer is apparent. His total apostasy doctrine is in flat contradiction to Christ’s teaching. Th

    The problem with Christianity in the Philippines (include all denominations is the lack of foundation yes including Catholics as very few Catholics learned catechism, they’re fundamentalists, benevolent, and simply idiots). There are many interesting subjects when talking about religion and that includes ecumenism.Mas makabubuti sa mga kritiyano kung pag-aralan nila ang ibang relihiyon lalo na ang mga sinauna katulad ng hinduismo, budismo, shintoismo, confucianismo, etc para maintindihan ang pagkakaugnay ng mga relihiyon. Hindi yung kristiyano sa kristiyano nagpapasiklaban kung sinong maliligtas. Punyeta hindi kristiyanismo at judaism ang mga naunang relihiyon sa mundo, so yung mga sinaunang tao ganun na lang ba hindi sila naligtas gayong gumawa rin sila ng mabuti at kabanal-banalan? Isep isep din ng malawak pag may time!

      The word catholic itself means universal. The church does not condemn other religions; we in fact hope that everyone will be brought in union with Christ. In our community, we are not even particular about Catholicism…we even encourage other Christians (INC is not a Christian church) to be faithful to their own traditions. Jesus came so that everyone might be saved…and he came even for those who died before Christianity. It is good to understand and know about other religions…but there is only one Way, Truth and Life. Nobody comes to the Father but through Christ…it is written, and it shall be so.

      1 John 4:1: “Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
      Battle between good and evil won’t end until Our Savior comes again and redeems God’s Kingdom. It is not about what religion has existed first, but which is truly founded by the Lord. We study those religions in order to know their origin, whether their existence is through the Power of the Almighty God. Only one Church is founded by Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church (“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18)), the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. One can be saved if he professes his faith in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as one, true and eternal God and works on it. So what religion teaches this? It’s still the Catholic Church. That’s why the Catholic Church is necessary for the human’s salvation:

      846 How are we to understand this affirmation, often repeated by the Church Fathers? 335 Reformulated positively, it means that all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body:

      Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it. 336 (Catechism of the Catholic Church)

      Lactantius (Church Father)

      “It is, therefore, the Catholic Church alone, which retains true worship. This is the fountain of truth; this, the domicile of faith; this, the temple of God. Whoever does not enter there or whoever does not go out from there, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation. . . . Because, however, all the various groups of heretics are confident that they are the Christians and think that theirs is the Catholic Church, let it be known that this is the true Church, in which there is confession and penance and which takes a health-promoting care of the sins and wounds to which the weak flesh is subject” (Divine Institutes 4:30:11–13 [A.D. 307]).

      In short, the Catholic Church is the universal sacrament of salvation.

      847 This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of their own, do not know Christ and his Church:

      Those who, through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know it through the dictates of their conscience – those too may achieve eternal salvation. 337

      So if one didn’t know Christ and His Church, but sought God through their conscience would also be saved.

      I hope you’ll be enlightened and seek God through the true and universal Church.

      Any religion or denomination claiming that they are the true religion or they are the only one who will be saved, are definitely way out of their heads! Theres no such thing as the only true religion! Nothing in the Bible says so! If somebody will read a passage from the Bible telling you about a SPECIFIC religion to be the only true religion, then congratulations! You officially found a false prophet that God warned us about in the last days! If you believe that God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient, then why dont we just let God decide who will be saved or not! Than claiming that only ur people will be saved! How about the people who lived in the olden days who died not hearing about the word of God? Will they not be judged also? God looks inside every mans heart not by what denomination he is/was with. Religion is only there to guide us not to save us. So before joining any religion, try to attend as many as you can, study them and most importantly, pray with all your heart which religion its gonna be. But be warned of those religions claiming that they are the only one who will be saved…thats all I can say

      The Catholic Church has never taught such a doctrine and, in fact, has constantly condemned the notion that men can earn or merit salvation. Catholic soteriology (salvation theology) is rooted in apostolic Tradition and Scripture and says that it is only by God’s grace–completely unmerited by works–that one is saved.

      The Church teaches that it’s God’s grace from beginning to end which justifies, sanctifies, and saves us. As Paul explains in Philippians 2:13, “God is the one, who, for his good purpose, works in you both to desire and to work.”

      The Council of Trent harmonizes the necessity of grace and works: “If anyone says that man can be justified before God by his own works, whether done by his own natural powers or by the teaching of the Law, without divine grace through Jesus Christ, let him be anathema” (Session 6; can. 1).

      The Council fathers continued by saying, “If anyone says that the sinner is justified by faith alone, meaning that nothing else is required to cooperate in order to obtain the grace of justification and that it is not in any way necessary that he be prepared and disposed by the action of his own will, let him be anathema” (Session 6: can. 9).

      By the way, “let him be anathema” means “let him be excommunicated,” not “let him be cursed to hell.” The phrase was used in conciliar documents in a technical, theological sense, not in the same sense as the word “anathema” is found in Scripture. Don’t let “Bible Christians” throw you for a loop on this one.

      So, far from teaching a doctrine of “works righteousness” (that would be Pelagianism, which was condemned at the Council of Carthage in A.D. 418), the Catholic Church teaches the true, biblical doctrine of justification.

      hope this helps you Pearl

Mass is the highest form of prayer yet may mga tao pa ring nagrorosaryo habang pinagdiriwang ang misa, yun ay dahil nagkulang ang katoliko sa pangaral, kahit man lang basic teachings ng simbahan kulang sa kaalaman.

The Catholic Church has never lacked teachings to her faithful people. it is just there are still people who do not understand the real Catholic Teachings, like you …Have you ever studied the Catholic Doctrine? Try to study the origin and dogma of the Catholic Church entirely and then denounce our faith if you see it against the Scripture.

    I’m one of the living proof on how INC do their teachings. I went through their “Doktrina” – process in which INC teachings was given to any interested individual of becoming an INC member. Napansin ko lang pero never ko pinuna ung ministro (for respect) – na when he’s reading the bible and put into words kung ano ang beliefs ng isang INC – it was done word for word. Meaning kung ano ang basa, ‘yon ang kahulugan. In my opinion, bible was written with holiness. Too deep to fathom and oftentimes, we’re asking blessings and guidance para lubusang maunawaan ang turo nito. A simple word requires deep understanding at hindi ‘yong definition lang based sa mismong salita. At sa hanggang matapos ko ang “doktrina” palaging natitira at nakukumpara ang katoliko. Masakit for me kasi I was born as a Catholic. At sa sarilining pananaw ko, you can teach the words of God without using other religions. ‘Yong parang sila mali at ikaw tama. It was so inappropriate. Nevertheless, nayari ko lahat ng proseso but I was never baptized. I gave up and was never married to my INC fiancee. I was never in doubt at first to become an INC because I loved the person that I’ll be with. But I just can’t be in a religion with these kind of beliefs. In the end, it’s not with the religion but on how you live your life in accordance to God. Kahit INC or Catholic ka, we just need to have “respect” for each other. Salamat po.

    Actually it’s not really about the religion. It is about the word of GOD. The religion(churches) teaches about the word of GOD. But you may be aware if their teachings are right and if it is really stated in the Bible. As a person, ask your self if you believe that the Bible is the Word of GOD. Do you believe? If yes. Open it, Read it and have Faith on it. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).

    Kung ang itinuturo ng Churches nyo ay lihis o lumihis sa Bibliya. Mag isip isip kayo. Bakit ba kayo sumisimba o sumasamba? Ano ba sinasabi sa inyo ng mga churches nyo? Magsimba kayo sa amin para kayo maligtas? Ang kaligtasan ng isang tao ay wala sa mga churches nyo. Nasa inyong pananampalataya.

    (Epeso 2: 8-9)
    8.Sapagka’t sa biyaya kayo’y nangaligtas sa pamamagitan ng pananampalataya; at ito’y hindi sa inyong sarili, ito’y kaloob ng Dios;

      I would argue that Christ’s divinity is revealed in numerous places in Scripture:

      John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
      John 1:14-15 “And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth. John (the Baptist) testified to him and cried out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, “The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.'”

      John 8:58, John 20:28 (Thomas’ proclamation of faith: Ho Kurios mou kai ho Theos mou–or “The Lord of me and the God of me!”)

      Philippians 2:6

      Isaiah 44:6, 41:4, 48:12

      Revelations 1:17, 2:8, 22:12-13 (tying back into Rev. 1:8, where the same title is applied to the Lord God).

      And that’s just to name a few. I’ve got quotes from the Church Fathers also proclaiming the divinity of Christ, if we need to do that, too.

      “We are not playing the fool, you Greeks, nor do we talk nonsense, when we report that God was born in the form of a man.” –Tatian the Syrian [Address to the Greeks 21 (A.D. 170)]

    No man is perfect and so all kinds of organization in this world including religions that are handled by men, have their own imperfections and flaws. As Christians, we believe in the Holy Bible, not just phrase/s or book/s from it but its whole content. We cannot eliminate any word or phrase and believe only in the phrases that applies to us or we feel comfortable. All its contents must not contradict with one phrase to another. However, there are many lines and phrases in the bible that seems to contradict with each other and from this, we, in our own interpretation and limited understanding, can formulate something or even find lines to prove that the bible or a certain religion or Christian organization is not telling the truth. Our Heavenly Father of course knows our limitations and what it can cause and so He built a Church for us to have a standard. This is clear when Jesus gave his apostles the authority over the Church that He built at the same time. Jesus even gave the “key” to Peter and said that they can forgive sins or not (tie/untie per bible). The authority which Jesus gave to His apostles applies even to their successors for Jesus knows that they will one day depart. The Church Jesus had built will be ONE in faith and in baptism. He also further said that NO ONE CAN DESTROY His Church and will survive until the end of time. There is no other Church that claims and even has historical relevance that can be dated from the time of the apostles but only the Catholic Church. It should be as simple as this. Common sense dictates that there should be a Church that exist from the time of the apostle up to this time otherwise Jesus did not fulfill His promise to His Church. Jesus knows that the apostles and their successors (Pope, Bishops & Priests) are not perfect and of course vulnerable to make mistakes and commit sins. BUT what He promise will remain, that no one can overturn His Church even from within or from the outside. Can we say that Jesus made a mistake in choosing Peter and Judas Iscariot as part of the Twelve who were all identified as His closes followers during that time? Of course not, but still, Peter denied Him three times & Judas betrayed Him for pieces of silver. And surprisingly, Jesus gave the “key” to Peter and made him the leader of the Church, Arguments are unending but we need to have an open mind to the many mysteries of our faith. Pray that Our Father will grant us the Wisdom & the strength to Love one another in Jesus Name.

    The Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) is an independent Christian religion whose primary purpose is to serve and worship the Almighty God. Registered with the Philippine government on July 27, 1914, this Church, which propagates the true Christian faith, is now ardently embraced by millions of people in 94 countries and territories in the six inhabited continents of the world. Its membership, to date, comprises 109 nationalities as it oversees about 5,400 congregations and missions. It also maintains the United States Main Office (USMO) in Daly City, California and the Europe Main Office (EuMO) in London, England. Recently, the Church inaugurated new district office buildings in Washington, DC (Northeastern Seaboard District Office); Toronto, Canada (Eastern Canada District Office); and Tokyo, Japan (North East Asia District Office). Through these and more than hundred other ecclesiastical district offices, the Church supervises its congregations and missions around the world.

    Known also for being active in community services, outreach programs, and projects concerning health, environment, cleanliness, and beautification, the Church has been a recipient of numerous awards and recognitions such as the Santa Clara Country Parks Department Director’s Award (California), the Hong Kong Red Cross Annual Donor Award, London in Bloom Certificate of Excellence, Queens Chamber of Commerce Building Awards (New York), London Best Blooming Public Building Awards, etc. Appreciating its “selfless community deeds and exemplary humanitarian concerns,” the City Council of Daly City, California even proclaimed a week in the month of July as “Church of Christ Week”.

    Contrary to the allegation that its doctrines are “unbiblical”, the Iglesia ni Cristo faithfully adheres to the teachings of the Holy Scriptures as the sole basis of its faith and practice. For instance, it believes in the biblical teachings that the Father, the Creator, is the only true God (John 17:3, 1; I Cor. 8:6); that Christ, the appointed Savior, established the Church of Christ for the salvation of mankind (Acts 5:31; Matt. 16:18; Acts 20:28, Lamsa Translation; Eph. 5:23, 25); that baptism into this Church is necessary for salvation (Mark 16:15-16; I Cor. 12:13; Col. 1:18); that the ones authorized to preach the gospel are the messengers of God (Rom. 10:15); and that congregational worship services, which are for the spiritual welfare of the members, should not be forsaken (Heb. 10:25-27).

    On morality and holiness, the Church regards God’s words written in the Bible as a way of life. It regards marriage as sacred and inviolable (Matt. 19:4-6) and promotes stability of family, Christian parenting, and proper love of children. It helps maintain peace and order in the society by teaching submission to the duly constituted government and obedience to laws (Titus 3:1; I Pet. 2:13) as long as they do not contradict God’s will.

    For people to have a well-informed judgment on our religion which requires substantial knowledge about the biblical tenets and practices we uphold, we do whole-heartedly invite everyone to attend our Bible studies and worship services. Do feel free to contact our brethren and visit our houses of worship near your place.

      John 20:28 – And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

      John 8:58 – Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

      John 10:30 – I and [my] Father are one.

      Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

      these verses attest Jesus Christ being God and being equal to our Almighty Father. please explain this … thank you …

        I do not know where the author gets his information, but the churches of Christ in the US and in the Philippines do indeed believe and preach that Jesus is Deity (John 1:1-4, 14) and we worship Him as such. To teach otherwise would be to twist plain teachings about Christ’s to our own destruction. Since churches of Christ are autonomous, it is possible that some do not believe that Jesus is God, but these would be considered apostate. It is quite unfair to paint all church of Christ with one broad stroke. Such an accusation hurts the credibility of this author, who has not done his research.

    I am not sure of the other Christian Churches and denominations and have no enough knowledge with regards to their doctrines BUT one thing I’m sure, that there is no other Church that originated from the time of Jesus and His apostles but the Catholic Church. JESUS BUILT A CHURCH before He ascended to Heaven. A Church he handed over to His apostles to govern and to lead. The Church will exist from then on until the end of time and no one can ever destroy what He built. If this is not the Catholic Church then tell me what it is. It is as simple as that.

    Catholic means universal. The Catholic church is founded by Jesus Christ and handed to His apostles before He ascended to Heaven. I died before and after 12hours i live again. During my death, it was then i found out that going to heaven is not so easy. I passed by a lot of obstacles: rivers of boiling water, bridge with fire, fields with a lot of thorns, etc. I passed by a lot of spirits of dead people suffering asking me for a help. Some are crying, some can’t see and some are hungry. When i reached heaven with the help of my angel, i saw soo many saints and Our Lord Jesus shining like a sun, a lot of gold around in every place you go. I saw the priests, the catholic priest leading a prayer in front of the Lord. They make sign of a cross before prayer. I saw many angels and saints. Somebody told me to go back to earth coz it is not yet my time of death. So an angel guided me to go out of heaven. During my long trip going to earth, i passed by a lot of spirits suffering around. They asked me to help. I asked them if they are catholic and said they don’t. Some told me they are ministers, pastors but told me why are they not accepted in heaven since they are ministers, pastor. The angel told them that they don’t believe in Jesus Christ, the divine trinity, they don’t make the sign of the cross. And there that i discovered that only has a catholic belief can enter the kingdom of heaven.

      he can’t have resurrection because he is suffering in darkness. why? because he fooled people to believe in him as prophet but not.

      I agree with you. Masigasig kasi yung iba na mag-recruit sa Catholics kaya doon napapatuon ang pansin ng mga may hinahanap, imbes na sa pari sila o sa mga layko na maaaring makausap nila. Before they know it, ayun, na-recruit na sila at ika nga ng iba ay na-“brainwash” na. It’s also a matter of knowing who to turn to.

    -they don’t believe that Jesus is God but a mere man.
    -I’ve tried one of the sermons or teachings of this INC but they really insisted that catholic people are not to be saved, if who ever join their sect you will be automatically saved, always making some things that of other religion’s mistake and besides, no religion can save you.

    when I was about 10 years old, I had a best friend who was INC.. Her dad preached every time he seen me about the INC and all this and that.. So, just to satisfy our curiosity, my friend and I decided to check each others church.. I went with her to her church and was very uncomfortable through the whole thing.. Then, she went with me to attend Mass and she did not made any comment… She ended marrying a catholic but stayed with her church and I ended marrying a Protestant who got baptized in the Catholic faith.. We kept our friendship going till she passed due to breast cancer.. Sometimes, children acts better than the adults.. I am a Catholic and will stay forever faithful..

    Additional information, it was President Quezon who sponsored Manalo his Freemason “brod” financing him and used the Iglesia to counter Aglipayan church. Look at the logo of the INC in every chapel they have the distinct marking of the Freemasons, Compass and Square, the letter G replaced by a lamb and adding a bible.

    It’s very inspiring to hear from my Catholic bros/sis defending our Church. We truly are intolerant when it comes to our doctrine, we will never allow anyone to discredit or make false accusations in which they truly never understand or wouldn’t accept. However, we must be tolerant with them, who are non-catholics and respect them and what they believe in. Apparently, we never even have to argue with them if in the first place they don’t believe or STILL deny and disregard what is very clear in the Gospel that JESUS built a Church from the time of the apostles which He also said will exist until the end of time. It is the ONLY church given direct authority by Our Lord Jesus Christ. No reason to argue not because we disrespect them but they always try to prove that Catholic Church is NOT the ONE that originated from the time of the apostles BUT cannot likewise prove any other church, so there’s no point of argument at all. I suggest to read this article by Bishop Fulton Sheen: http://www.fisheaters.com/forums/index.php?topic=2340953.0

    The conversation is so intense. Let us try to calm ourselves and reflect. The response on the question about INC is good. In fact it gave a precise explanation and a good apologetic. But it seems that the reaction is not as it is suppose to be. Yes we understand that there will be a lot of negative comments and reactions. It is given. But we should not forget the truth about the faith that the apostles received from Christ and handed down to us through the apostles themselves with the Pope and the bishops as true and authentic successors. That is why everyone is encouraged and all baptised has the obligation to learn about the faith. Most of those who leave and attack the catholic church are those who did not learn the truth about the faith but instead finds time to learn on attacking the faith. The Pharisees did it. Christ Himself showed them the way to salvation, but instead of accepting and learning from it they exert more effort on stopping him and finding ways to kill him. Let’s try to reflect on this point. Another point is on the heart of what Jesus taught us. He taught us to love God and neighbor. Let us try to look at what the catholic church is doing. Everything that the church teaches us is to grow in the love of God and neighbor. What does the other religion preach to their members? If we look at their television shows everything they talked about is an attack to the catholic church. is this an act of love? Why not preach about love which Jesus himself showed us? Is attacking ones faith more important that teaching the ways of love?

    The Catholic Church just expresses the truth directly from her groom, our Lord Jesus Christ, equal to the Almighty and Eternal God. All the attackers of the evil will not stop denouncing the truth until our Saviour comes back and redeems God’s Kingdom. When that time comes, all His true believers will go to the paradise and worship God forever in joy and love. God has given us the longest length of time to repent and profess our faith in Him. Everyone must come back to the real church founded by Christ (the Catholic Church) and have faith that works …

    nabasa ko ang inyong pagtatalo bilang magkakapatid bakit hindi ninyo tanungin ang inyong ama .o kulang lang k u sa pagsusuri .una ang sabi ng isa catholic means universal other meaning also general so ibig sabihin pangkalahatan, kabuuhan,kaya ang lahat nang mananam palataya pueding sabihin na katoliko.Pero kapag ginamit ninyo ang tunay na pangalan ng inyong reliyon na romano katoliko iba naman po ang ibig sabihin nito.itoy isang organisasyon ng reliyon na pinamumunuan ng papa sa vatican na may roong ibat ibang pananampalataya at doctrina. at binigyan nang ibang kuhulugan at pag unawa ang ibang talata sa biblia.Gawa 4:12 sa silong nang langit walang ibang pangalang ibinigay sukat sa ikaligtas ng tao. Mahirap ba unawain ang salitang walang ibang pangalan,ANG PANGALANG JESUS.bakit kayo gumagamit nang maraming pangalan na hindi naman itinuturo ng biblia.JUAN 14:6 ang sabi ng PANGINOONG JESU CRISTO AKO ANG DAAN ANG BUHAY AT KATOTOHANAN walang makaparoon sa AMA kundi sa magitan ko.Bat ang dami nyong dinadaanan, hindi ito tulad ng isang lugar na nais ninyo puntahan ,halimbawa nais ninyong pumunta ng America puede kayong manggaling sa ibat ibang bansa basta t america pa rin ang punta nyo. Ang DIOS ay di tulad ng isang politiko na kailangan mo pa ng ibat ibang kakilalal na malapit sa kanya para pakinggan ka.Tandaan ninyo ang salita nang Panginoong Jesu Kristo AKO hindi (SILA).ang sabi pa christ founded catholic church. sorry for that, Jesus Christ not founded a church full of idolatry.That’s why you rejected the second commandments in EXUDOS 20:4-6 to defend the doctrine of your church.Thus nullify the words of GOD for the sake of your tradition. MARK 7:8-9 .IGLESYA ni Manalo di ko na pahabain pa, sa di nyo palang pagkilala sa Panginoong JESU KRISTO bilang DIOS sapat na sa inyo na di kayo sa tunay na DIOS.Napakaraming patotoo sa Biblia na syay tunay na Dios ayaw ninyong tanggapin.at ayaw ninyong bigyan nang laya ang mga meyimbro ninyo na magbasa nang Biblia dahil natakot kayong mabuking.Paliwanag ninyo ang mga talatang ito. 1 JUAN 5:20, ISIAS 9.6 , roman catholic in ISIAS 9:6 you can read PRINCE OF PEACE NOT QUEEN OF PEACE, bagay malikhain kayo santambak na kahoy at bato ang ginawa ninyo upang sambahin at paglikuran.ILLUMINATI kayo na ang mag search ang tungkol sa inyong samahan at makikita ninyo maliwanag pa sa sikat nang araw kung sino kayo at sino ang tatay nyo kayo din mga romano catholiko dyan lang sa you tube o googles para kayo mismo ang makakita buksan ninyo lahat ang tungkol sa inyo at makikita ninyo magkakapatid nga kayong tatlo.Pagpaumanhin ninyo pero sa tagal kong pagbabasa ng Biblia nakikita ko kung paano kayo dinadaya ni satanas itakwil ninyo ang masamang turo ng tradisyon at tanggapin ang katotohahan .upang di ninyo abutin ang kaparusahan sa mga ayaw tumanggap ng katotohanan.JUAN 8:32

      Sino ba ang nagtatag ng protestantismo? Tao, hindi ba? Nagkamali sila sa paglisan sa Simbahang itinatag ni Kristo. Bakit maraming protestanteng simbahan? Dahil sa Sola Scriptura na doktrina ni Martin Luther. Ito ay nagsasabi na ang bawat isa sa natin ay may karapatang i-interpret ang Biblia. Anong nangyari pagkatapos? Maging ang mga tagasunod ni Luther ay tumiwalag sa kanya dahil sa hindi sila nagkakasundo sa kami lang mga sariling interpretasyon. Yung mga tumiwalag kay Luther ay nagtayo ng kani-kanilang simbahan kung Saan tumiwalag din ang ibang miyembro dahil iba rin ang interpretasyon nila. Ayan ang pinagmulan ng libo-libong sekta. Bakit nananatiling buo ang Simbahang Katolika? Dahil mayroong tagapagturo na pinapatnubayan ng Espiritu Santo, ang Santo Papa at ang mga obispo na successors ni Pedro at ng iba pang apostol. Hindi natin maikakaila na kailangan natin ng tagapagturo. Maging ang Simbahan, sa mga unang panahon nito, ay umasa sa turo ng mga apostol at hindi sa sarili nilang interpretasyon.

    Ang masasabi ko sa INC – Incorporated lang na isang pamilya lang sang namamahala isang pamilyang nagpapalaki ng kanilang pondo sa banjo name kunwari sa Diyos Pedro sapilitan ang ikapo ng iyong buwanan, o arawan mong kita at kung titinginan nyo sa process ng pagsamba nila kapag hindi nagsasamba may pataw na regulasyon agad eh, sa Katoliko or sa Ibang religious group may kalayaan hindi sa pilitan ang pagsamba at may fine kaya ka nga pumapasok sa simbahan para lumapit sa Diyos eh kung sapilitan naman ang pagsamba Hindi na ako aanib.

    Diba nga po binigyan tayo ng kalayan na sumunod ayon sa kalooban ng Diyos, bakit po ganun marami po akong kilalang INC na daw Sila dahil sa pabahay at kabuhayan kapalit ng pagtiwalag sa KATOLIKO, BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN etc FOR SALE na pala ang paniniwala kasama na dun paninira sa Ibang grupo…

    Kung totoo silang tagpaglingkod ng Diyos dapat walang FAITH FOR SALE…. maraming gustong bumalik kaso dahil sa utang na loob Hindi na kayang umalis pa….

    Diba Gawain Lang iyon ng kumpanya ang manira ng Ibang Company para sa kanila na ang mga tao ng siniraang company ?

    Kaya ANG INC (IGLESIA NI KRISTO) DAW? Dapat INC – Incorporated owned by one family.
    At diba dapat ang isang namumuno ng isang grupo ay dapat hindi iisang pamilya kaya nga binago ng simbahang Katolika ang patakaran ng pagpili ng mamumuno para maiwasan ang monopoly kaya Hindi Sila ang tunay na Iglesia ni KRisto Silva ay Inc. Hindi INC.

    mga low i.q. kayo!kung Hindi naman po si jesus christ ay di natin makikila ang tunay na panginoon na maliligtas.cguro kung di sya dumating hayop ang sinasamba natin.di ba?!kaya nga sya pinadala dito para iligtas tayo sa kasalanan at gumawa ng mga kababalaghan.example,buhayin yung patay,ura mismo pag may sakit ka gagaling ka.iyan ang mga ilang patunay na dyos sya.di naman kayang gawin ng ordinaryong tao yun.di ba!kung di dyos lang!akalain mong patayuin mo yung patay….hindi pa ba sapat yun para paniwalaan sya…minsan kc palalimin din ang utak..im proud catholic.

    …jesus said to simon peter: with this rock i will build my church and the gate of hell could not prevail it’.

    I cannot hold myself not to comment. Praise the people of God defending their faith. We should always do so in front of lies against our Mother Catholic church. That’s why we need to learn more and grow in faith. Learn and discern the truth. And continue to pray and praise God for the gift of faith. Not everyone will be save. Although Jesus tried but not everyone will accept him. Be humble but firm in your faith. Be vocal but learn the truth. Research and contemplate. If God is with us who can be against us. Praise be to God. Mabuhay ang Simbahang Katoliko. Spread the truth.

    NO RELIGION CAN SAVE A SOUL. MAKE IT SIMPLE, BELIEVE IN CHRIST AND HIS TEACHINGS INTERNALIZED IT, PRACTICE IT THEREBY CREATING A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST. 100% YOU ARE IN THE RIGTH TRACK TO HEAVEN!!! REMEMBER SATAN IS THE GREAT DECIEVER HE WILL GIVE YOU TEACHINGS THAT WILL CONFUSE YOU IN THE END YOU WILL FIGTH EACH OTHER. AND THEN WAHT?
    WHO IS THE WINNER? BE VIGILANT!!!

    You should all stop this bickering, division is caused by the evil one and he is in our midst, instead pray pray that christ will come quickly. That our division will be healed. That we shall love one another.

    You mention about Trinity, can you find verses in the Bible about this ?, This is a man-made teachings. God says ” don`t add nor don`t subtract “

    For Christ said, “I am the door, anyone who comes into the fold through me will be safe…”

    The fold or flock is the Church of Christ which He (Christ) redeemed with His blood.

    One of the truths written in the Holy Scriptures.

    If we fight against each other, we are letting the enemy win. People, theres no such thing as TRUE religion and the only denomination that will be saved! The only thing that will save us is Gods grace thru Jesus Christ! Its written! If you truly and i really mean TRULY, surrendered yourself to God then everything else will follow (good works, love, compassion, etc).

    Illuminati, ang galing mo! Latin is a dead language & mga pokpok na pari at baklang seminarista lang ang gumagamit! The word “Illiminati”is Latin! So, alin ka sa dalawa, yung baklang seminarista or yung pokpok na pari?
