ANSWER TO “Treason against God” of incdefendernomore.org

I was trying my best to hold my peace, avoid social media, and just concentrate in our EGMs or Group meetings, caring for those who were unjustly expelled, displaced members and silent defenders, until, someone sent me a link on this article. What made me affected after reading it, is the thought that after all that happened in the Church, many have remained blind and have not yet learned their lesson. They still don’t see the real picture or the true source of the problems that beset the Church. They keep on putting the blame on others. I’ll try to make my answer as brief and concise as it can be. I will also limit my answers to issues that are known to both the expelled and many members of the Church.

Out of the six issues they raised against the “defender ministers,” only the last three need clarification because (to use their own words), “the first three are fairly straightforward. It’s the last three that require further discussion.” Indeed, they do, and may I say to them, “Your wish is my command.”

Accusation: “They all rebelled against the current Church Administration” (despite their) “pledge of loyalty to, and undying love for, the current Executive Minister.” To validate their point, they extracted a part of my Editorial of the October 2014 issue of Pasugo/God’s Message which states:

“ ‘The whole staff of Pasugo/God’s Message magazine, like the rest of God’s people throughout the world, extend our wholehearted greetings and undying love to our beloved Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, whose birthday is on the last day of this month. We make this greeting with our solemn vow that we will always be submissive to and united with him in his unceasing effort to present the whole Church to our Lord Jesus Christ “a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish’ at His second coming (Eph. 5:27, NKJV).”

Answer: But it is so noticeable that when they reiterated the quotation from my article, it was limited to or only up to “his unceasing effort to present the whole Church to our Lord Jesus Christ.” They intentionally omitted the ending part of the statement which states, “a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish at His second coming.” I am so thankful to God that despite the fact that I made this Editorial in 2014, He willed that the words I have used were complete and easy to understand, with no room for a distorted interpretation.This statement, when read as a whole in its context, says it all—we should be submissive and united with the Church Administrator in his effort to present the Church to our Lord glorious, not having spot or wrinkle, but holy and without blemish. The reason they intentionally omitted this important portion is in order to deceive the readers that ours was “A broken vow” and we have committed “Treason against God.”

But can they honestly say that the Church is being led to glorious state when it is now involved in rampant corruptions and with billions of peso debts? They say, “NO EVIDENCE!” Oh yeah? How then can they explain the fact that the Convention Center has remained unfinished four years after the construction began. I remember vividly what they used to proudly say before launching these multi-construction and multi-billion infrastructure projects, that the Church has sufficient fund to finish them all. What about the plan to get rid of all unsightly and dilapidated houses of worship and replace them with presentable ones before the Centennial of the Church? Isn’t this a case of a mismanaged offering of the Church or better yet, a disappearing fund? JUST ASKING.

Are the members being led to holiness and to a condition that is without spot and blemish when the doctrines and rules of the Church are grossly violated by those who are tasked to prepare the members for salvation?

Since when did it become a practice to list the names of thousands (millions as they previously claimed) of people as “indoctrinees” yet only came to receive “goody bags” during the Church Aid to Humanity (Lingap sa Mamamayan) activities, or to baptize people who have not yet finished receiving the doctrinal lessons or have not received them at all? Now, Who broke their vow? Who committed treason against God who appointed them?”

ACCUSATIONS 5: “They all created division by taking sides in an internal family dispute that pitted the Executive Minister against the expelled family members of Bro. Eraño.”

                           6: “They all preach a distorted version of the gospel taught by the Last Messenger, one that assures those outside the Church of salvation.”

Answer: Defending the family of Brother Eraño G. Manalo from oppression and pointing out the revision he made in the provisions of the Church’s Article of Incorporation, is no way an act of “taking sides in an internal family dispute.” In the first place, this is not simply a matter of “internal family dispute” but more of an issue of widespread corruption and anomalies in the Church. If only those issues were properly addressed and resolved immediately, the problem would have not escalated. What created division is the utter disregard of the doctrines and rules taught and implemented by God’s last messenger and upheld by brother Eraño G. Manalo. Now, let’s see who the true guilty is?

  1. Who distorted the doctrine that the one who should be expelled is “the evil person” and not the one who obeyed the doctrine to expose the works of darkness (I Cor. 5:13; Eph. 5:11)? I am not questioning the doctrines of the Church and the verses used in their article including the doctrine that those who are expelled will be judged by God. But does God approve of the unjust expulsion of those who took the side of the truth and exposed the works of darkness?

2. Who violated the doctrine that we should love each other even our enemies? Who continuously oppress and harass the expelled especially the family of Brother Eraño G. Manalo, cutting off the electrical and water lines, enclosing their houses with high iron fences and barbed wire, disallowing or limiting to smallest quantity the delivery of water, food and other basic necessities, but at the same time spend a great fortune giving aid to the needy as far as Africa? And they have the temerity to accuse us of distorting the words of God. I believe, they are barking at the wrong tree when they used Matthew 7:5 against us, because it clearly applies to them: You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

They said that instead of “discussing our concerns in social media” we should “offer suggestions and recommendations, always driven by love for the Church and respect for the Administration …” HELLOOO! In making this kind of suggestion, they expose their true color—HYPOCRITES. Why? They are the ones who overused and relied so much in social media. They have formed groups of ministers and warriors (mandirigma ), instructed the ministers to have their own FB accounts to malign and character assassinate the defenders especially the expelled ministers and the family of Ka Erdy.

I am not sure if they are blind, or great pretenders, or simply unaware of what many of us have already done “for the love of the Church and respect for the Administration.” Furthermore, they “suggested” that if we have issues about corruptions in the Church, “let the Executive Minister deal with that. That is his duty, not yours, or ours.”

I myself, at several instances, informed the proper Church authority about the anomalies in the Church hoping for actions that would spare the Administration from blame, and the Church from ruin. To name a few: the case of the most wanted fugitive in South Korea; the $100.00 bills “collection”; the jacked up price of rice for Lingap; the padded number (in the millions) of listed “indoctrinees” issue, and I can name more if need be. I regret to inform you that my loud call for action fell on deaf ears. I was instead accused of being the blogger that exposed the anomalies and corruptions through social media. They interrogated me several times, placed me and my family under house arrest, and when we managed to escape, they expelled and began to harass and hunt us down. With God’s help, we were able to reach the U. S. A., but our ordeal did not end. They continued to harass us (all their actions are in the Police records), and again sued me in the Court of Law, but thank God, they’ve lost.

I do not condone disinformation and mud slinging through social media but they cannot  blame the defenders if they resorted to using social media – FB because no Church authority listens. The least they could have done is to make a transparent and thorough investigations instead of immediately saying “no evidence,” and worse, they showed their being biased by investigating, or more appropriately, interrogating those who made the reports instead of those reported.

Hopefully, you will come to your senses and realize that what you are doing, putting the blame on us, will only force us to answer and reveal the TRUTH (through social media). Its all up to you.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THEIR LIES Part 2 ( Mga Sagot Kay Benito)

ANSWER TO BENITO’s STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART

We are not against sa sinasabi nilang pagtigil sa pagsasagutan sa social media specifically on Facebook dahil noon pa man ay iyan ang aming advocacy. But we believe that the readers, especially the defenders or those who have read postings ng maraming false accusations sa amin should understand o maliwanagan sa totoong pangyayari. Kaya narito po ang kasagutan namin na punto por punto.

Kapag natapos na naming sagutin ang lahat ng kanilang akusasyon ay mananahimik na kami pero kung magpapatuloy ang kanilang mga paninira at malisyosong  postings  na ang labis na nasisira ay ang gawain at nagbubunga ng pagkalito sa marami ay mapipilitan kaming sagutin silang muli.

Benito Affleck:                                                                                                      ” Nagsimula ito ng lumabas na ulit si Boyet Menorca II, noong una po ay maganda ang situation between Ka Bob , sa kanila pong dalawa , ako yung “GITNA”.  Ang pangyayaring tumutugon sa “LEADERSHIP” issue ang naging ugat. Well, tama naman, dahil noong hindi pa nakakalabas si Boyet , Itong si Ka Bob ang gumitna, naging maayos naman nabuo ang mga bagay o nagkaroon ng “pundasyon” ang DEFENDERS , tinutukan naman niya ng kanyang panahon ang maraming bagay-bagay. Pero hindi ito naging sapat, dahil yung nagsisimulang “pressure” sa pagitan nila ay naging “friction” na nag start na ng iba’t-ibang usapan. “

 Our Response/ Sagot :

It is true that Ka Bob led the defenders from the beginning, at marami ang nakakaalam nito including the Ministers.  During that time, patuloy si ka Bob na sumasangguni sa nangangalaga sa atin at sa mga Ministrong nangangasiwa.  Lahat ng communication na galing sa nangangalaga ay dumadaan kay Ka Bob and this can be attested to by the Ministers guiding us.  It is also true na kahit maraming pressure noon ay napangunahan and defenders ng maayos.  At ito po ay during the time na hindi pa nakakalabas or “nare-rescue” si  Lowell ‘Boyet’ Menorca II.

But what really happened? Bakit at ano ba talaga ang naging dahilan or simula ng “friction” between Ka Bob and Boyet? (which Benito didn’t mention on her post kaya misleading ang sinabi niya).  One of the reasons po sa “friction” na alam ni Benito ay, noong nakalabas na si  Boyet ay agad niyang sinabi na walang kinalaman si Ka Bob at Benito sa pagkaka rescue sa kanya.  Ang sinabi niyang tumulong daw sa kanya ay si Sherlock at Vina.  The mere fact na alam na alam ni  Boyet na ang malaking bahagi at nanguna sa coordination ng pagkaka rescue sa kanya ay si Ka Bob, and of course with the help of a lawyer, Benito and Ka Jun Samson. This was proven in one of the meetings with the Ministers where Boyet denied Ka Bob and Benito’s help on his rescue.  Sinita si Boyet ng Ministro doon sa meeting na iyon dahil sinabi niyang walang kinalaman sila ka Bob at ka Benito sa rescue. Para matandaan ng mga dumalo sa pulong ay sa pag-uusap na yaon sinabi ni Boyet na, “hindi totoo yan! mamatay man ang asawa ko” at “mamatay man ang anak ko.” It was also during that meeting that Ka Jun said to Boyet na dapat hindi siya labas ng labas sa safehouse for his own security and his family dahil sa sabi niya ay pinatutugis siya ng “taga-Central” at nanganganib daw sila.  At sa pulong din yon napag-usapan kung bakit nag-text si Boyet sa isang defender na “ipadala na nila sa kaniya ang mga evidences against Jun Santos dahil hinihingi na ni EVM” (bakit niya alam? bakit all along may communication pala itong si Boyet kay EVM na para hindi siya mahalata ay sa iba ibinintang lalo na kay ka Bob at siniraan na mole daw?- paniwalang paniwala naman ang mga naloko nila) Bakit kaya hindi ito binanggit ni Benito sa kaniyang post samantalang alam niya na isa iyon sa pinagsimulan ng tinatawag niya na “friction”? Nabura na siguro sa puso niya ang pangyayari. Sayang, “Straight from her heart” pa naman ang mga ipinost niya.

BENITO AFFLECK  :

” Umusbong ang intriga between Ka LM at Ka Bob, totally nahati na, sa original na kasama ni Ka LM , ako lang ang DISTANSYA sa kanya , bakit ? Kasi , nag sticked ako kay Ka Bob. Maraming kumausap sa akin, pero hindi ako naapektuhan. Lalong tumindi ang “isyu” . SIRAAN dito at SIRAAN dun, may nakakarating na mga “negative” isyu sa akin. PINALABAS pa nga na MOLE kami, si IRENE SERRANO, ANITA KURAKOT, si Ka LORNA , ako at si Ka Bob..sige pa rin , hanggang nahati ang EGM at naging 2 flatforms dahil sa isyu.. “

 OUR RESPONSE :

Totoo po na nagkaroon ng gap between Boyet and Ka Bob and that Benito distanced herself from Boyet and his group – pero bakit nga po ba nagkaroon ng gap at bakit nga po ba siya nag-stick kay Ka Bob?  Dahil siya mismo (Benito) ang nagsabi na marami siyang evidences against Boyet at ito daw si Lowell ‘Boyet’ Menorca ang MOLE (tao ni Babylyn? -ayon sa kaniyang intel) at hindi mapagkakatiwalaan.  Dahil sa mga gatong na rin niya kaya lalo kaming naniwala.  And during one of the zoom meetings  na dinaluhan ng maraming mga defenders (ito ang meeting na hinarap ni Ka Bob ang mga kasama ni Louie Cayabyab at Boyet na maraming bintang kay Ka Bob – lahat ng yon lumabas na puro tisimis lamang pala), Benito turned on her microphone and  threatened that she will show all the evidences against Boyet pero maghintay lang daw at may kakausapin pa siyang mga “agents” then lumabas na siya sa meeting  (parang James Bond movie).  Benito also admitted na si Ka Bob ang talagang target na sinisiraan ng grupo ni Boyet.

Hindi lang dahil dito kaya nahati sa dalawang grupo ang EGM (or sabi nga ni Benito nahati sa “2 flatforms” – i think what she’s trying to say is platforms), at hindi gusto ng EGM team na mahati sa two platforms but because Ka Louie Cayabyab was the one who refused to be a part of the EGM dahil sinabi niya sa mga pagpupulong na dapat ay hindi organized” ang EGM na kagaya ng INC kundi dapat ay mabigyan ng autonomy ang bawat grupo.  When Ka Jun Samson was about to officiate EGM for the first time in California ay nagtext si Ka Louie na hihiwalay na sila ng mga taga Northern California (hindi po ang EGM team ang humiwalay para po sa kaalaman ng lahat – sila po ang humiwalay).  That was the time na siniraan si Ka Jun at Ka Bob at tinawag silang mga mole sa social media, and during that time also na ginawan nila ng kwento at pinakalat nila na si Ka Bob ang dahilan ng pagka compromised ng mga umaattend ng EGM at mga tumutulong sa RTC.

BENITO AFFLECK  :

Problema, dahil sa sobrang sama ng loob nitong si Ka Bob , umaatake na siya ng “Personal” na never kong hahayaan kung alam ko at sasabihin sa akin sinasaway ko. Kaso hindi lang naman ako ang KINAKAUSAP niya, kahit nag uusap kaming madalas, may iba pa siyang nakakausap. Lalong naging MAINIT si IRENE dahil nga sa isyu na sinisiraan siya ng mga  DEFENDERS so yung personality niya na hindi pedeng pakiusapan ng maayos, bumabanat na sila ng wala kaming alam na iba.” 

 OUR RESPONSE  :

At this time na sobrang dami ng lumabas na paninira sa social media kay Ka Bob at sa Ka Jun Samson, sino po ang hindi sasama ang loob?  They vilified him and ruined character assasinated him not only on the social media, dahil gumawa sila talaga ng paraan na isa -isang tawagan pa ang mga defenders (sa pangunguna ni Louie Cayabyab) para lang siraan si Ka Bob.  Is there  no reason for him to be angry at sumama ang loob? It was that Boyet and Louies’ group that started personal attacks against their fellow defenders on social media? Totoong “naging mainit” si Irene Serrano at siya naman ang umatake ng personal kay Boyet at galit na galit sa grupo nila.

During that time totoong maraming kinakausap na defenders si Ka Bob at natural lang iyon dahil siya ang nilalapitan ng mga defenders sa marami nilang katanungan at ang iba ay sa kaniya humihingi ng advice na binigyan naman agad nila ng masamang pakahulugan.


Abangan pa ang mga sagot  sa iba pang mga akusasyon ni Benito.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THEIR LIES (voice of a true defender) Part 1

(By: Honey Hathaway re-post)

Money Matters

I have never thought of myself writing about MONEY. Because the last thing I want to do is declare on social media about who I helped with financially. However, I am left with no choice as their attack on me and Ka Bob keeps coming. I have to do this for everyone’s knowledge – which I tried to avoid discussing, that I PERSONALLY assisted Benito Affleck financially since the day they tried to escape the Philippines until they decided to leave the EGM team. Ka Bob BEGGED me to help her financially (dahil sa awa sa kanya at sa kanyang pamilya). Begged? Because i do not know her personally. But for the sake of the EGM team and knowing of the danger her and her family was facing – i helped them from the time of their escape, payment to get out of jail, accomodation since they left the Philippines and helped with their day to day allowances. (I will NOT go through it one by one but if needed, I WILL with all the receipts).

I DID NOT collect money from anyone (as Network54 said), it all came from my personal account. I DID NOT borrow any money from anyone to help Benito, or the first payment for the new lawyer for #36 TS, etc. etc.  I don’t intend to itemise or divulge on social media every single financial help I have done because I believe it is not appropriate.

What Bless Grace Hernandez aka  Benito Affleck forgot to say on her latest post involving our photo together is the reason why I was there with them. Let me refresh your memory Benito (before you all judge me for that leaked photo), nakalimutan mo ba that the reason why i was there is to PAY US$5,000+ for you and your family’s (including Henry Cabe) airfare tickets to Paris? And BOOKED/PAID online your Hotel accommodation in Paris? (which were all never used – but I was still charged for it). Remember it now? But before that, I have sent you initial US$5K for your escape, then another US$5K before you fled to Malaysia.

Need i say more here? I will not resort to any kind of accounting transparency here but if provoked I WILL NOT hesitate to come out with all the receipts from the time you tried to leave the Philippines.

Ka Bob supervised your escape as you told our team through Ka Bob that your life is in danger because your safe house was compromised courtesy of Boyet Menorca.  Ka Bob and the rest of the EGM team was so worried and you requested Ka Bob NOT TO TELL anyone your whereabouts at kahit saang lupalop ka pupunta. Ka Bob coordinated with me to seek financial assitance for your escape, we kept it secret. Even the EGM Team DID NOT have any idea where you are because Ka Bob was so worried about you and your children’s lives plus your companion Henry Cabe aka KINCHAY.

I am the ONLY one who knew your exact location as I have been there personally to assist you. But never I have spoken or mentioned to anyone about it. How could you of all people attacked me like that on social media after all i have done?!

After all of these help from us EGM team you have the nerve to rant against us, Ka Jun and Ka Bob?? What kind of heart you have you are talking about? This is what you paid us for?

And for you Evelyn Malveda aka Phina Panyet aka Anita Kurakot  and Network54, you all have the nerve to question me where my MONEY is coming from? Accused me of collecting money or coming from Sanggunian? I DID NOT STEAL IT NOR BORROWED IT FROM YOU, SO DON’T YOU EVER QUESTION ME WHERE MY MONEY IS COMING FROM. All I can say is – IT CAME FROM MY BANK ACCOUNT!

I will NOT go down to your trashy level but don’t you all dare me and question my financial capability again because i will make sure that next time you do that, I will have my lawyer make use of my money so that I can take you all to court.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THEIR LIES (voice of a true defender)

(By: Honey Hathaway)

Introduction

A lot has been said during the last course of time before the year ended in 2016. It created hate, confusion and a great deal of divisiveness once again within the defenders. We were branded by small minded people as “bulong brigade” or mapanulsol, not realising that they speak of themselves or para mas maintindihan nila “ang tinutukoy nila ay ang kanilang sarili” gaya ng mababasa sa kanilang mga postings na punong-puno ng accusations and sarcasm. But of course they wouldn’t understand that because they think they are always right – we cannot argue with the self righteous people, right?

Network54 have said so much LIES and twisted stories from their “unreliable” sources, but you would have thought that they will do their job to get their facts straight so as not to create further confusion to everyone eapecially the brethren/defenders who constantly attends the EGM.  And, for Benito Affleck to come up with a story entitled “Straight From the Heart” – what kind of heart does a person have who bit the hand that fed her/him?        

Benito always use the name of the siblings in Tandang Sora just to gain sympathy and justify her anomalies and because we are against of what she is doing – swindling, deceiving and taking advantage of the defenders financially. She has no difference to those who claim they are also defenders but their actions are contradictory to the aim and perspective of our cause. Their intention is to destroy the EGM but in  order to do that, they have to discredit, malign and assassinate the characters of those individuals and the true Ministers behind the EGM.

They all know we are among the people behind the EGM. For them to use those baseless accusations, only proves that they are low enough and desperate to do anything against us. That is the tactic of the decrepit and the evil minded.  We would not be surprised if their intention is not only to malign us, but to cast doubt on the image of our ministers and destroy our EGM – which only intention is to HELP AND NOURISH THE SOULS OF THE DISPLACED BRETHREN.

Let me quote my friend’s Tomas Gordon Ramos (Mang Tomas) – on one of his early posts :

“When we are ready to stand for what is right, we are eager to fight to the end… yet a good teacher once taught: “Look before you jump, for before you might be  a chasm”…”

Since you’ve started your accusations, you’ve been forcing and challenging us to answer. Well, your wish is our command. We will not only answer but will see to it that the truth comes out. We  are ready to break our silence for the TRUTH’s sake (to fight for our right to tell you the TRUTH).

Stay tuned.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THEIR LIES ( Titigil Na Daw Si Benito ….)

Sincere ba si Benito sa sinabi niya na titigil na siya sa kanyang ginagawa ?

Bilib ako sa timing ni Benito Affleck. Pagkatapos na maidown ang FB account ko sa minsan ko pa lang na pagpopost ng sagot at katoohanan ay saka siya nagdeklara ng ceasefire dahil daw sa utos ng “nangangalaga” sa kaniya. Salamat po sa nangangalaga sa kanya dahil sa pagtutuwid niya kay Benito bagamat the damage has been done. 

Pero kapansin-pansin na pakitang tao lang, dahil kung tunay ang pagsunod niya at paggalang sa nangangalaga sa kaniya ay hindi na siya bumanggit ng maraming pasaring dahil binawalan na nga siya. Para siyang anak na binawalan na ng magulang at sumagot ng Opo pero tuloy din sa kaniyang masamang ginagawa. Lagi pa naman niyang sinasabi sa mga posting niya na siya ay masunurin sa kaniyang magulang.

Ok na sana sa akin iyong paawa-effect niya  na parang siya ang inaapi at sumasagot lang daw  pero alam niya at ng mga nakabasa na sila nina Benito at Phina Panyet ang nagdala ng isyu nila sa social media FaceBook gaya ng sagutan nila ni Phina Panyet pero humirit pa rin ng mga pasaring at kinagat naman ng mga kasama rin nila.

Sincere ba ang taong nagdeklara ng ceasefire pero patuloy na bumabaril? Nalimutan na ba niya ang katagang BACK FIRE?

HUWAG TAYONG PUMAYAG NA MALIGAW

” AKING IPINAHAHAYAG NA AKO AT ANG AKING MGA KASAMANG MINISTRO SA EGM AY WALANG KINALAMAN SA GRUPONG HUMIWALAY NA SA TUNAY NA IGLESIA. NANININDIGAN KAMI SA NAKASULAT SA BIBLIA NA IPINANGARAL NG KAPATID NA FELIX Y. MANALO AT NG KAPATID NA ERAÑO G. MANALO NA ANG IGLESIA NI CRISTO SA MGA HULING ARAW AY HINDI NA MATATALIKOD (bagamat may mga tatalikod), SUBALIT ITO’Y MAGDARAAN SA MATINDING PAGSUBOK NA ITO NGA ANG MATINDING KASAMAAN NA NAGAGANAP NGAYON SA IGLESIA NA DULOT NG MGA MASASAMANG NANGANGASIWA. ” 

Alam ng nakararami na iniiwasan ko ang paggamit ng social media lalo na kung ito ay tungkol sa pagsisiraan at pagbibintang sa akin. Gayunpaman, may mga tunay na defenders na nagmamalasakit sa akin na nagpapadala ng mga FB screen shot ng mga postings ng paninira sa akin. Sa pagkakatanda ko ay minsan lang akong napilitan na sumagot, at ito ay noong ako ay pinagbintangan na “mole” daw ng Central upang sirain at maghasik ng pagkakabaha-bahagi sa mga defenders. Bagamat may ilan na di tumigil agad ng paninira sa akin ay minarapat ko nang huwag nang sumagot pa sapagkat sapat na sa akin na naihayag ko ang katotohanan at ang pawang katotohanan lamang. Sa awa ng Diyos, marami ang naliwanagan at ang paninira ay unti-unting napawi subalit ngayon ay muling bumangon ang paninira sa akin sapagkat ako naman ngayon ang pinagbibintangan na sumisira sa H20. Marahil, kaya nila ako pinagbibintangan ay sapagkat nagkataon na bago uminit ang isyung ito ay pinagsabihan ko ang mga nangangasiwa sa H20 na huwag itong ikampanya sa panahon ng mga pagpapanata sapagkat ang pakiramdam ng maraming dumadalo ay parang nasa pagsamba sila na walang ginawa ang mga Owe na ministro kundi ikampanya ang abuluyan at handugan. Sinabi ko pa na ang ginagawa nilang paggamit sa 36 TS sa paghingi nila ng donation ay gagamitin ng mga Owe upang pagbintangan at sisihin ang magkapatid na naninirahan doon. Sinabi ko rin sa kanila na bagamat ayaw kong makialam sa pondo ng H20 ay gawin sana nilang transparent ang paghawak nito at makatutulong kung bibigyan nila ako ng information tungkol sa mga pinaggugugulan nito upang masabi ko sa mga nagdududa na maayos ang pangangasiwa sa naturang pondo. Subalit sa halip na sila ay makinig sa payo ay pinag-usapan nila sa kanilang group chat na hindi raw ako dapat humingi pa ng information at pinalabas pa nila ang isang isyu na ang “magkakapatid” raw mismo ang nag-o-audit nito. Gayunpaman, minarapat ko pa ring hindi patulan ang mga paninira manapa ay pinagbilinan ko pa ang mga defenders na huwag nang makisawsaw at sumama sa pagsasagutan. Gayunpaman, ang layunin ng artikulong ito ay hindi upang pahabain pa ang isyu tungkol sa H20 ni upang ipagtanggol ang aking sarili mula sa mga mapanira, manapa ang tatalakayin ko ay ang nangyayari ngayon na lalong malaking panganib sa kaluluwa ng mga defenders.

Sa isang posting ni Liezl Diaz Deocampo ay sinabi niya na, “It’s time for us to leave the OWE Church behind (ang tinutukoy ay ang INC) and (to) move on towards the true service expected from us by our Lord and by our God.” Sa isa naman nilang text blasts ay ganito ang kanilang ipinakakalat: “It is better for the silent defender to leave OWE because their worship service is abomination to God.”

attachment-1-1

Ito na rin ang dati nang ipinakakalat at ngayon ay patuloy na ikinakalat ng mga ministrong nangunguna at nangangasiwa sa kanila sa ginagawa nilang pagtatatag ng mga live na pagsamba (at may Sta. Cena pa), at maging sa ilan nilang FB postings. Sinasabi nila na ang mensaheng ito ay ang mismong nilalaman ng “tagubilin” sa kanila. Kung ito ay totoo ay kapansin-pansin ang isang napakalaking pagkakaiba sa “tagubilin” at sa kanilang ipinakakalat. Sa “tagubilin” ay walang karugtong na “Church” ang “Owe” samantalang sa kanilang ipinakakalat ay na-emphasized nila na dapat ay layuan o iwan na ang “Church” o ang Iglesia. Ang paghikayat na ginagawa ng grupong ito sa mga kapatid na paghiwalay sa Iglesia ay pagtuturo ng pagtalikod. Samakatuwid, ang dati nilang ipinangangalandakan na restoration ay naging separation.

Ang nangyayari ngayon, kung sinasabi man nila na sila ay sa restoration pa rin ng Iglesia ay may contradiction sa kanilang sinasabi at nabigyan nila ng ibang pakahulugan ang salita sapagkat ang restoration (na nangangahulugang to repair or renovate) ay dapat sa Iglesia o sa loob gawin at hindi sa labas na gaya ng kanilang ginagawa ngayon. Ito ang dahilan kaya sama-sama tayong lahat sa paglalantad ng mga maling gawain sa Iglesia sa layuning magkaroon ng pagbabago at ito ay maibalik sa kaayusan at kabanalan (restoration). Ang dahilan ng mga nagsusulong ng “separation” ay, “the services they (the OWES) do is an abomination … (thus) members should get out of the untrue and the abominable.” Totoong maraming mga ministro at mga kaanib na OWE ang “untrue” at ang kanilang mga gawain ay “abominable” o kasuklam-suklam, subalit ang Iglesiang katawan ni Cristo ay namamalaging “true” o tunay at hindi kasuklam-suklam sa Diyos sapagkat ito ay nilinis ng dugo ni Cristo. The premise they use to justify their action is extremely faulty, unscriptural and dangerous. Faulty, because the abomination of the OWE ministers and members does not necessarily render the only true Church false. For hundreds of years, Israel was led by many evil leaders and kings many of whom have tried to mislead the Israelites, but they remained as God’s chosen people until the time that the whole Israel turned away from God. Tandaan natin ang doktrina na ang Iglesia ay ang “kulungan” ng mga tupa. Ang kumukulong sa mga tupa ay ang mga aral ng Diyos. Bagamat maraming mga tupa na nailigaw (owe members) ng mga “upahang pastol” (OWE ministers) ay di nangangahulugan na ang kulungan ay wala nang kabuluhan at lahat ng naiwang mga tupa sa loob ng kulungan ay dapat na ring palabasin. Ang itinuturo ng grupong ito na ang buong Iglesia ay naitalikod na ay “unscriptural,” sapagkat ito ay tahasang paglabag sa doktrinang itinuro ng Sugo, ang Kapatid na Felix Y. Manalo, at ng Kapatid na Eraño G. Manalo. Nakasulat sa mga hula ng Biblia na ang Iglesia Ni Cristo ang huling grupo o bahagi ng Iglesia, (wala nang ika-apat), na aabutan na ng Araw ng Paghuhukom kaya hindi na ito matatalikod (Zech. 13:7-9; Gawa 2:39; Apoc. 14:12-15). Ito ang dahilan kaya maging ang grupong ito ng mga tinatawag na mga “defenders” ay dating bukang bibig ang katagang “Restoration” subalit ngayon, sa aminin man nila o hindi, ay hinihikayat na nila ang kanilang mga kasama at ang iba pang mga kaanib na humiwalay (separation). Ito ay “dangerous” sa mga napapaniwala (nadaya) nila sapagkat ang pagsunod sa maling aral ay mangangahulugan ng kapahamakan sa Araw ng Paghuhukom.

Kaya raw kailangan ang live na pagsamba na may kalakip na salaping handog at pagbabasbas ay dahil kulang raw at di maituturing na pagsamba sa Diyos o pagtitipon ang ginagawang EGM ng mga defenders kung wala ang mga ito. Mali ba ang sinabi ng mga apostol sa I Cor. 14:26 at 15 na ang pagkakatipon ay binubuo ng pag-awit, pananalangin, at pagtuturo ng mga salita ng Diyos? Ang nakakatulad ng ating pagsamba ngayon ay ang pagsamba ng mga kauna-unahang lingkod ng Diyos na bagamat walang handog na salapi ay may handog naman sila na mga hayop na susunugin. Ang atin namang handog ngayon ay ang ating sarili na buhay at kaaya-aya “na siyang katampatan nating pagsamba” sa Diyos (Roma 12:1). Hindi man itinataas ng ministro ang kaniyang mga kamay sa pangangasiwa ng EGM ay tinatanggap pa rin ng mga dumadalo ang basbas ng Diyos lalo na sa panahon ng pananalangin at ito’y pinatutunayan ng malakas Niyang kapangyarihan na nararanasan ng mga dumadalo.

Sa pamamagitan ng artikulong ito ay

AKING IPINAHAHAYAG NA AKO AT ANG AKING MGA KASAMANG MINISTRO SA EGM AY WALANG KINALAMAN SA GRUPONG HUMIWALAY NA SA TUNAY NA IGLESIA. NANININDIGAN KAMI SA NAKASULAT SA BIBLIA NA IPINANGARAL NG KAPATID NA FELIX Y. MANALO AT NG KAPATID NA ERAÑO G. MANALO NA ANG IGLESIA NI CRISTO SA MGA HULING ARAW AY HINDI NA MATATALIKOD (bagamat may mga tatalikod), SUBALIT ITO’Y MAGDARAAN SA MATINDING PAGSUBOK NA ITO NGA ANG MATINDING KASAMAAN NA NAGAGANAP NGAYON SA IGLESIA NA DULOT NG MGA MASASAMANG NANGANGASIWA.

Sinasampalatayanan namin na ang Diyos ang magbibigay wakas sa mga masasamang lider nito at sa kanilang masasamang mga gawa upang ang Iglesia ay maibalik sa kaayusan at kabanalan. Sumasampalataya rin kami na itinulot ng Diyos na malagay kami sa ganitong kalagayan na itinakuwil ng kasalukuyang pamamahala upang pangalagaan ang mga  tunay na defenders upang sila ay mamalaging masunurin at namumuhay ng ayon sa mga aral ng Diyos at pagdating ng araw na ang Iglesia ay maibalik na sa kaayusan at kabanalan ay pangungunahan namin ang mga tunay na defenders na itinakuwil ng kasalukuyang pamamahala sa pagbabalik sa tunay na Iglesia upang patuloy na maghanda para sa kaligtasan.

 Sa lahat ng mga “silent defenders,” hindi po namin kayo hinihikayat na kusang humiwalay sa Iglesia. Hinihikayat namin kayong ipagsanggalang ang Iglesia sa paraang manindigan kayo sa tama at huwag sumunod sa maling itinuturo ng mga naligaw na ministro. Kung kayo’y itiwalag at alisin sa talaan ng Iglesia dahil sa inyong paninindigan, so be it. Sampalatayanan ninyong iyon ay itinulot na ng Diyos gayunpaman, hindi Siya ang nagtiwalag sa inyo sapagkat labag sa Kaniyang aral na ang itiwalag sa Iglesia o alisin sa talaan ay ang naninindigan sa tama at sumasalungat sa masama I Cor. 5:13  Ang dapat alisin o itiwalag ay ang gumagawa ng masama. Dahil dito, manalig kayo na hindi Niya kayo pababayaan.

 Sa lahat ng mga defenders, maging matiyaga tayo at huwag mawawalan ng pag-asa. Ang pakikibaka natin sa kasamaang naghahari sa Iglesia ay gawain ng Diyos kaya ilagak natin sa Kaniya ang ating lubos na pagtitiwala. Inaasahan Niya na ipagsasanggalang natin ang Iglesia kaya patuloy natin na ilalantad ang masasamang ginagawa ng mga ministro at mga kaanib na OWE na sumisira sa Iglesia subalit huwag tayong pumayag na ito ay mauwi sa paghiwalay o pagtatatag ng panibagong Iglesia. KAAWAAN NAWA NG ATING PANGINOONG DIYOS ANG ATING MGA KALULUWA.


LET US NOT BE DECEIVED

” I SOLEMNLY DEPOSE AND SAY THAT WE THE MINISTERS IN-CHARGE OF EGM HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GROUP OF THE SO-CALLED DEFENDERS THAT PROMOTES SEPARATION FROM THE TRUE CHURCH.         WE FIRMLY STAND BY WHAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE AND PREACHED BY BROTHER FELIX Y. MANALO AND BY BROTHER ERAÑO G. MANALO THAT THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO IN THESE LAST DAYS WILL NO LONGER BE TURNED AWAY (although there are members who did and who will), BUT IT WILL UNDERGO EXTREME TRIALS LIKE THE WICKEDNESS THAT NOW PREVAIL IN THE CHURCH BROUGHT ABOUT BY ITS EVIL LEADERS. 

Most of those who know me are aware of the fact that I avoid indulging in social media especially when it involves bashing each other and accusations against me. Nevertheless, there are defenders who truly care and send me screen shots of FB postings that intend to malign me. As far as I remember, there was only one instance that I was forced to answer allegations primarily the accusation that I am a “mole” planted by the Central administration to sow division among the defenders. Although there were bashers who did not stop immediately, I decided to ignore them for I considered it sufficient  that I was already able to expose the truth and nothing but the truth. With God’s help, many were enlightened by my answer and the false accusations slowly died down until the H20 issue became a hot issue, with the same group of the so-called defenders accusing me of wanting to destroy the H20 fund. Perhaps, it is because before this issue came out, I have told those handling the H20 fund not to campaign for it during the online devotional prayers because many attendees feel that as if they are attending the worship services officiated by Owe ministers who relentlessly campaign for monetary offerings. I also told them that using 36 TS in asking for donations will create a ripple among the defenders and will be used by the OWES to accuse the TS occupants of being behind the solicitation campaign. Likewise, I told them that although I don’t want to get involved with the fund raising, there is a need for them to be transparent in handling it and that it would help their campaign if they will at least provide me with the information on how and where the fund is being used so that I can assure the donors that everything is alright. But instead of heeding my advice, they began to question my intention telling everyone in their group chat that I should not ask for a report on the expenses claiming and spreading an issue that the “siblings” themselves are the ones auditing it. Nevertheless, I decided not to answer back and even told the defenders not to get involved with the issue and and answer back the accusations. Thus, the main purpose of this article is neither to prolong the H20 fund issue nor to defend myself from accusations, but to discuss a more pressing subject that once not addressed will truly endanger the souls of many defenders.

In one of the FB postings of Liezl Diaz Deocampo, she said, “It’s time for us to leave the OWE Church behind (referring to the INC) and (to) move on to the true service expected from us by our Lord and by our God.” In one of their text blasts, they said: “It is better for the defenders to leave OWE because their worship service is abomination to God.” This is what the ministers leading them have all along been spreading, be it in their live worship services or in establishing them, and even in their FB postings. They claim that this message is an “instruction” given to them.

attachment-1-1

If what they claim is true, why is there a glaring difference between the “instruction” and what they actually say? Why is there no mention of “Church” after the word OWE in the instruction yet in their postings they emphasize that the defenders and members should leave the Church behind? What they’re doing is equivalent to apostasy. Their long cry for Church restoration has become separation from the Church. If they insist that they are still after the restoration of the Church, then they have given a new meaning to the word. Restoration (which means to repair or renovate) should be done to the Church or inside and not outside it. This is the reason we used to be united in exposing the wickedness in the Church because we all wanted changes for the Church to be restored. The reason they give for openly advocating separation is that, “the services they (the OWES) do is an abomination … (thus) members should get out of the untrue and the abominable.” Indeed, many church leaders, ministers and members are untrue and their works are abominable, but the Church which is Christ’s body remains true and clean in the sight of God having been cleansed by Christ’s blood. The premise they use to justify their action is extremely faulty, unscriptural and dangerous. Faulty, because the abomination of the OWE ministers and members does not necessarily render the only true Church false. For hundreds of years, Israel was led by evil leaders and kings who tried to mislead the Israelites, but they remained as God’s chosen people until the time that the whole Israel turned away from Him. We need to remember the doctrine that the Church is the fold or the sheep pen and what enfold the sheep are the words of God. Although there are now many “lost sheep” (the owes) led astray by their shepherds who are “hirelings” (owe ministers), it does not mean that the fold or the sheep pen has lost its value and that the remaining sheep within should be led or driven outside. What this group claim that the whole Church has been turned away from God is “unscriptural” because it goes against the doctrine of God taught by God’s last messenger, Brother Felix Y. Manalo and by Brother Eraño G. Manalo. It is written in the prophecies that the Iglesia Ni Cristo is the third group or the last of the three groups (no more 4th group) that will comprise the whole Church, thus, it will last until Judgment Day and will no longer be turned away (Zech. 13:7-9; Acts 2:39; Rev. 14:12-15). This is they reason, even the said group of defenders used to advocate restoration but now, whether they accept it or not, promotes separation. “Dangerous” indeed, because the members they have convinced (or deceived) are in danger of eternal destruction on the Day of Judgment.

They say that “Live worship service” with monetary offerings and benediction is needed because our EGMs lack these portions, thus, could not be considered a true worship or meeting of true Christians. Does it mean then that the apostles were wrong in teaching that the true Christian meeting is composed of hymn singing, prayers and preaching of God’s words (I Cor. 14:26 & 15)? Our worship of God now is like the worship rendered by the very first servants of God who did not have monetary offering yet had unblemished animals offered in their worship of God. Because of our present situation and condition, we offer to Him “our bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—which is (our) spiritual worship” (Rom. 12:1). We, the ministers, may have not been raising our hands for benediction during our EGMs but we receive God’s blessings especially during our prayers as evidenced by the outpouring of His immense power felt by the attendees.

Through this article of mine, I SOLEMNLY DEPOSE AND SAY THAT WE THE MINISTERS IN-CHARGE OF EGM HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE GROUP OF THE SO-CALLED DEFENDERS THAT PROMOTES SEPARATION FROM THE TRUE CHURCH. WE FIRMLY STAND BY WHAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE AND PREACHED BY BROTHER FELIX Y. MANALO AND BY BROTHER ERAÑO G. MANALO THAT THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO IN THESE LAST DAYS WILL NO LONGER BE TURNED AWAY (although there are members who did and who will), BUT IT WILL UNDERGO EXTREME TRIALS LIKE THE WICKEDNESS THAT NOW PREVAIL IN THE CHURCH BROUGHT ABOUT BY ITS EVIL LEADERS.

We firmly believe that it is God who will put an end to these wicked leaders and their wicked deeds to restore the Church. We also believe that the reason God allowed us to be displaced by the present Church administration is for us ministers to take care of the spiritual welfare of the true defenders and see to it that they remain obedient and live by God’s teachings so that when the time of restoration has come, we will lead them back to the true Church to continuously prepare for salvation.

To all “silent defenders,” we do not enjoin you to separate from the Church but to defend it by means of standing by what is right and to never follow instructions from evil ministers that go against the true doctrines we have received. If you will be delisted or expelled by them for defending and standing by the truth, so be it. Believe that God allowed it to happen, however, it wasn’t Him who expelled or delisted you because it is against His law to expel those who expose the wicked and the wickedness, but only those who are evil, I Cor. 5:13. Thus, believe that He will never forsake you.  

To all defenders, be patient and never lose hope. Our struggle against the wickedness in the Church belongs to God, thus, we should put our complete trust in Him. He expects us to defend the Church which is why we should continue to expose the works of darkness that destroys the Church committed by the OWE ministers and members but we should never allow our actions to lead us to separation or to establishment of a separate Church. MAY OUR LORD GOD HAVE MERCY ON OUR SOULS.

SAGOT NI KA JUN SAMSON SA IPINOST SA IGLESIA NI CRISTO FACEBOOK ACCOUNT

Kapansin-pansin na nitong nakaraang ilang araw ay isang “lumang recording” tungkol sa naging sagot ko sa isang nagtanong sa meet and greet portion ng EGM ang ipinakalat ng isang Iglesia ni Cristo facebook account. OK na po sana kung ang record lang ng tanong at sagot ang kanilang inilabas, subalit ang kapansin-pansin ay ang kanilang paunang komentaryo na ang layunin ay dayain ang makababasa lalo na ang hindi na mag-aabalang makinig sa mismong recording. Sa timing pa lang ng pagpo-post ng naturang recording ay kaduda-duda na. Ang ini-record nilang pag-uusap kung hindi ako nagkakamali, ay noon pang September 2015 subalit pagkalipas pa ng maraming buwan nila ito inilabas. Sa ugali nilang mapang-espiya at mapanira, kung noon pa man ay may napuna na silang mali sa aking naging sagot, ay tiyak na hindi na nila pagtatagalin pa ang paglalabas nito. Marami akong maaaring banggitin na katunayan ng ugali nilang pagbaluktot sa katotohanan, subalit sa pagkakataong ito, ay dalawang halimbawa  na lamang ang aking ibibigay. Una, bagamat alam na alam nila na ang RTC fund ay para sa gastusin ng mga gawain ng mga defenders ay pilit nilang itinanim sa isipan ng mga kapatid na ito raw ang katunayan na nagtatag na kami ng sariling Iglesia. Ikalawa, ang pagbulusok ng abuluyan sa Iglesia ay dahil daw sa pinagbabawalan namin ang mga kapatid na mag-abuloy ng malaki kahit alam nila at ng nakararami na ito ay isang uri ng “protesta” ng mga kapatid dahil sa nakikita nilang mga anomalya sa Iglesia.

Ngayong nakapag-isip na sila (ang bagal naman) kung paano nila babaluktutin ang kanilang ini-record na usapan ay ipinasya nilang ilabas na ito. Isa-isahin po natin ang kanilang pandaraya:

  1. Nang tanungin daw ako “ukol sa mag-asawang natiwalag na sa INC pero gustong maihandog ang kanilang anak ay hindi (raw ako) makasagot, bagkus ang ginawa (ko) na lamang ay tumawa at magbiro.”
  1. Nang ako ay tanungin kung ano ang batayan sa Biblia, sinabi ko na hindi pinagtitibay sa langit ang pagtitiwalag sa mga defenders subalit wala daw akong maibigay kundi “nagpalusot” na lang daw ako na basahin na lang ang isang artikulo sa incdefenders.org. Ito raw ay nagpapatunay na ang aming mga sinasabi ay “batay lamang sa opinyon o kuro-kuro at hindi sa nakasulat sa Biblia.” Kung hindi raw pinagtitibay sa langit ang pagkakatiwalag sa akin ay dapat daw na pangasiwaan ko ang paghahandog sa bata? Ito raw ay katibayan na hindi na kami bahagi ng tunay na INC.

SAGOT: Kaawa-awa po ang mga nag-post ng mga ito dahil dalawa lang ang kahulugan nito: Hindi sila marunong umunawa o ayaw talaga nilang unawain ang kanilang mga ipino-post dahil labis na silang nakubabawan ng kanilang “amang” sinungaling at ng kanilang layunin na patuloy na dayain ang mga kapatid.

Totoong ako’y nagbiro sa layuning pagaanin ang damdamin ng mga kapatid na labis nilang inapi subalit ito ay hindi nangangahulugan na “hindi ako makasagot.” Kung pinakinggan lang nilang mabuti at inunawa ang recording ay hayag na hayag na sinagot ko ang katanungan. Ang pagsasabi ko na basahin na lang ng mga kapatid ang isang artikulo tungkol sa expulsion na ipinost sa Incsilent Nomore na sinundan ko pa ng pagsasabing naroroon ang mga sagot na talata, ay katunayan na nasagot ang katanungan sa maikling kaparaanan upang mabigyan ng pagkakataon ang iba na makapagsalita. Kaya ang aking sagot ay hindi isang opinyon o kuro-kuro. Ang OPINYON ay ang sinabi nilang hindi ko raw nasagot ang katanungan.

Ang hamon nila na ihandog ko ang bata kung totoong hindi pinagtitibay sa langit ang pagkakatiwalag sa akin (at sa mga kasama kong ministro), at kung hindi raw, ito ay katibayan na hindi na kami bahagi ng tunay na INC, ay isa pa ring uri ng pagliligaw sa mga inosente at isa  na namang pain o bitag na gusto nilang gamitin laban sa amin. Isa itong pagliligaw sa mga inosente sapagkat kung ginagamit lang nila ang kanilang isip ay naunawaan sana nila na ibang-iba ang situwasyon ng mga defenders ngayon sa dati nilang situwasyon noong sila ay hindi pa itinitiwalag at pinag-uusig. Kung bakit ay sapagkata ang EGM ay ginagawa sa pamamagitan ng ZOOM meeting at hindi namin kilala kung sino-sino ang dumadalo roon at kung nasaan silang bahagi ng daigdig. Ang hamon nila ay isang pain o bitag laban sa amin upang kung gawin namin ito o ang iba pang mga gawaing pang-Iglesia ay magamit nilang “patotoo” sa kanilang paratang na kami ay humiwalay na sa INC o nagtatag na ng sariling Iglesia.

Katunayan, ang ginagawa naming EGM na pilit nilang binabantayan at sinisira ay matagal na nilang ginagamit na “patotoo” na nagtatag na nga raw kami ng sariling Iglesia dahil may sarili na kaming “pagsamba” na “katulad” ng ginagawa sa loob ng Iglesia. Ito ay sa kabila ng katotohanan na ang EGM ay walang kalakip na handugan, doxologia, pagbabasbas, at iba pa, kundi pag-awit lamang ng ilang bilang, pananalangin, at pagpapaala-ala sa mga dumadalo ng mga aral na tinanggap ng tunay na Iglesia mula sa Sugo ng Diyos sa mga huling araw.

Bakit hindi ang pag-ukulan nila ng pansin at puna ay ang mga itinuturong leksiyon sa EGMs? Dahil ba sa alam nilang walang mali sa mga itinuturo sa EGM sapagkat ang mga yaon ay nakasalig sa mga aral ng Diyos na nakasulat sa Bibilia na itinuro mismo ng Sugo ng Diyos sa mga huling araw?

Ang bawat hakbang na kanilang ginagawa ay pawang desperate move. Ang katulad nila ay taong nahulog sa kumunoy na habang kumikilos ay lalong lumulubog. Idalangin na lang natin sa Diyos na wala na silang mahila pang mga kapatid sa kinalugmukan nilang kumunoy.

Narito ang bahagi ng naturang artikulo tungkol sa pagtitiwalag

EXPEL THE WICKED PERSON FROM AMONG YOU

All members of the Church dread the thought of being expelled, because to us, it is equivalent to death sentence and worse. What with all the expulsions, left and right being imposed by the members of the Sanggunian, who will not be scared and intimidated? Although I have touched on this subject in the past and in my very recent blog, let me remind you of what is truly written in the Bible. The Bible says in I Cor. 5:13, “Remove the evil person from your group.” No doubt that the “evil person” expelled from the Church are also expelled in heaven as Christ Himself testified to in Matthew 18:18. We also believe that he who does not remain until the end will not be saved, instead, will suffer the eternal condemnation. Unfortunately, like what the false prophets did after the death of the apostles, the members of the Sanggunian began to distort the implementation of this doctrine to sow fear in the hearts of the faithful. Anyone accused of questioning the rampant corruption they commit will readily be punished and expelled, reminiscent of the dark ages when any person accused of heresy, was readily sentenced to die at the stake. Well, at least many of those who were sentenced to die undeniably went against the ruling faith during that time. But how about now?

Many of those who were expelled did not go against any of the doctrine of the Church. Many of them were officers (like the Vasquez family in Long Beach, Ca.), very active members and supporters of the Church until the time they were expelled. For what reason were they expelled? For asking questions about the corruptions they hear and sometimes witness being committed by the Sanggunian members today. Since when, and where in the Bible does it say that asking questions for the purpose of knowing the truth, thus, avoid weakening in the faith, became a grievous sin punishable by expulsion? As ministers of God(?) administering the Church, they are commanded and expected by Him to lovingly and patiently show their concern for His people. In Ezek. 34:16, God requires the leaders of His people “to look for those that are lost, bring back those that wander off, bandage those that are hurt, and heal those that are sick.” But sad to say, the only portion of this divine instruction that the Sanggunian members consistently and are so eager to execute is “to look for those that are lost.” They do it not to bring the lost back by explaining and proving to them that the alleged corruptions are not true, but to interrogate and intimidate them, then force them to admit their “guilt” to serve as basis for their expulsion. What these Sanggunian members are doing are obviously against the teachings of God. THEIR ACTIONS AND DECISIONS ARE NOT SANCTIONED BY GOD because His doctrine is crystal clear: “Remove theevil person from your group.”

“REMOVE THE EVIL PERSON FROM YOUR GROUP.” To ask question and look for an answer is not evil. Even King David asked questions to God as if he was blaming Him for his predicaments, but his questions were not counted against him by God. To point out and report the corruptions committed by the Sanggunian members is not evil in God’s sight. It is not an act of going against the Church Administration as the Sanggunian members allege and insist. Rather, it is an act of protecting and defending the Church and the Administration from ministers who are not serving Christ but their own belly. Ministers who are in high places and powerful, corrupting not only the finances of the Church but even the doctrines and rules taught and implemented in the Church from the time of Brother Felix Y. Manalo. Like the lying spies sent by Joshua to Jericho, these conniving ministers are not truthful to our beloved Executive Minister. They are trying to keep him in the dark by telling him that everything is alright when in fact they know that ministers and members of the Church are now heavy ladened and complaining because of the heavy yet unnecessary weight they continuously placed upon their shoulders such as selling tickets, t-shirts, and other forms of memorabilia. They tell our beloved leader that there are millions of people joining the Church when in reality those whom they claim are joining the Church were told to sign the R3-01 forms in exchange for goody bags and their number is far from millions.

THESE ARE THE MINISTERS WHO ARE EVIL AND MUST BE REMOVED NOT ONLY FROM THEIR POSITIONS OF POWER BUT FROM THE CHURCH ITSELF. They are the true cause of the troubles being experienced by the Church today.

 

OUR HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES TO THE LOVED ONES OF SISTER AIDA “TITA AYDS” VILLANUEVA VIÑA

 

tita_ayds

We feel your deep sadness for the passing away of TITA AYDS. Many of us have known her for quite sometime. How can we ever forget her kindness, her being shy, and her controlled but genuine smile? What will linger most in our memory is the fact that she never failed to be on the side of Mommy Tenny assisting her wherever she goes. Although equally many are those who do not know her personally, yet “Tita Ayds” as she is fondly called by many has became a very familiar name because of the good things they hear about her.

We have no doubt that God willed that she be laid to rest, to spare her from further sufferings caused by the miseries that beset the Church and you, her loved ones. We pray to God that her demise will not be used by your oppressors to increase the pain and persecution you are now experiencing, instead, you’ll be given the opportunity to mourn her death. May our loving Father console your grieving hearts. PLEASE ACCEPT OUR HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES.

“For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” (II Timothy 4:6-8)

FROM THE DEFENDERS


TAOS-PUSONG PAKIKIRAMAY SA MGA NAULILA NG KAPATID NA AIDA ” Tita Ayds ”  VILLANUEVA VIÑA 

Dama po namin ang inyong kalungkutan sa pagpanaw ni TITA AYDS. Marami sa amin ang nakakakilala sa kaniya. Hindi namin malilimot ang kaniyang kabaitan, ang kaniyang pagiging tahimik, at ang tipid subalit mula sa puso niyang mga ngiti. Higit sa lahat na mananatili sa aming ala-ala ay ang sa tuwi-tuwina’y pag-alalay niya kay Mommy Tenny saan man sila magtungo. Marami rin ang bagama’t hindi siya kilalang personal ay familiar na sa kanila ang pangalang “Tita Ayds” dahil sa pawang magagandang naririnig nila tungkol sa kaniya.

Wala kaming alinlangan na itinulot na ng Diyos na siya ay pagpahingahin upang di na madagdagan pa ang paghihirap ng kaniyang kalooban dahil sa mga nakikita niyang kaganapan sa Iglesia at labis na paghihirap at pagpapahirap sa inyong mga mahal niya sa buhay. Dalangin namin na ang kaniyang kamatayan ay hindi magamit sa lalong panggigipit sa inyo kundi mabigyan kayo ng pagkakataon na ipagluksa ang kaniyang pagpanaw. Nawa ay aliwin ng kapangyarihan ng Ama ang namimighati ninyong damdamin.

TANGGAPIN PO NINYO ANG TAOS PUSO NAMING PAKIKIRAMAY.

“Sapagka’t ako’y iniaalay na, at ang ang panahon ng aking pagpanaw ay dumating na. Nakipagbaka ako ng mabuting pakikipagbaka, natapos ko na ang aking takbo, iningatan ko ang pananampalataya: Buhat ngayon ay natataan sa akin ang putong na katuwiran, na ibibigay sa akin ng Panginoon na tapat na hukom sa araw na yaon; at hindi lamang sa akin, kundi sa lahat din naman ng mga naghahangad sa Kaniyang pagpapakita.”  (II Timoteo 4:6-8)
