Another scam is about to be perpetrated although the Catholics in the Philippines had just been battered by the onslaught of nature without priests and nuns extending help to the needy!!!

Sainthood is through Christ's shedding of His blood for the true Church which He established in the city of Jerusalem during the first century!!! This is the Church which He stamped with His ownership by calling it as His own while talking to Apostle Peter!!!

The saints of the Scriptures are so different from the saints of the Roman Catholic Church!!! To become a saint in this spurious religion, sponsors have to pay beatification and canonization fees worth millions of dollars and is opposed to Christ's way of making people right before God and that is the shedding of His blood for the Church of Christ, His body!!!

Though thousands of these saints are scattered all over the world, none of them were able to project salvific power during the numerous floods which battered the Philippines!!!

Instead, members of the spurious religion known as the Catholic Church were seen moving the sculptures to safer places so as not to make these look "cross-eyed" and therefore neutralize the aesthetic effects of the skillful hands of the Catholic craftsmen!!!

Balasubas,

You are correct that the possible Catholic saint will not solve the problem of flooding in the Philippines!!! Pedro Calungsod has no possibility of what the spurious Catholic Church is doing for him!!! The Bible testifies thus:

"For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even the memory of them is forgotten." (Eccelesiastes 9:5, New International Version)

Making a saint out of someone who does not know about it is but a money-making enterprise!!!

Robert,

We have so many problems and one of which is the verdant hills and mountains are removed of its forest covers!!! Trees are being cut at will for the image-carving enterprise of the Roman Catholic Church!!! Inutile saints are mass produced and sold and worshipped everywhere!!! Yet, no miracle was produced during the onslaught of the floods!!!

Priests, nuns, and carved images of the skillful Catholic artists never produce produced one instance of miracle through intecessions for the living!!! Its all a matter of advertised scams!!!

Robert,

Of course there are lots of problems!!! Worshipping something such as carved images which could not do anything is a mental problem!!! Talking, praying, and asking an inutile wooden image which could not hear nor respond is a mental problem!!!

Do not believe in the spurious testimonies of the Catholic priests from Guam!!! They are well-known here for child rapes and molestations!!!

Also, during the Chamorro rebellions against the Roman Catholic Church in Guam, almost the entire male population were wiped out when this religion unleashed their fury against the natives!!! Catholics from the Philippines were used to quell the revolts!!! Catholics kill Catholics!!!

Amc,

The unrest is because of the absence of Padre Damaso!!! He is afraid of the flood though thousands of miraculous graven images were advertised as supporting him!!!

Now, the scam is exposed!!! The "lolong bishops" are now known to the public!!! The tinted pajeros could not hide them!!!

Celebrate a new Saint? They have so many saints and now there is a new one. Well that's what they want anyway.

But don't they ever get confuse with it, those saints they worship? And how on earth do they memorize the names of those saints. It's like they have saints in every integral part or aspects of life. And they are just made of concrete or wood.

Lady every year at Easter I video the whippings and cutting their backs open to bleed. I do it trying to show how dangerous it is as they take one razor and go from man to man lying on the ground and slice their backs open. Aids and God knows what else can be passed from this direct blood contact.

Ladypinkie56,

This is just another scam of the Roman Catholic Church!!! A few years ago, the "Church of Mary Seen Everywhere" had removed from its Vatican Roster of Saints several canonized or declared saints!!! Some of these saints were found to be non-existing, frauds, murderers, and prostitutes!!! But there was no refund to the sponsor countries!!! When asked why there is no refund, the Vatican replied that the money accepted during canonization rites are already Catholic Church money!!!

Wang Dang,

MOST OF US, members of the Church of Christ, were former Catholics. Our minds were even closed to other faiths because we thought that Catholicism is the true religion. We didn't miss the Sunday Mass, for we believed that our worship was accepted by God. We used to believe that to be a Catholic is to be a Christian.

But what prompted us to leave the Catholic Church despite the many years we spent in it as faithful and devoted members is the truth written in the Bible:

"In vain do they worship me, teaching human precepts as doctrines." (Mt. 15:9, New Revised Standard Version)

We didn't want our worship of God to be in vain or useless. This prompted us to listen to and study God's teachings written in the Holy Bible and compare them with Catholic doctrines.

For instance, we believed then, as many Catholics still do, that our worship of God, especially those that lead to self-imposed piety and severe treatment of the body, is pleasing and acceptable to Him. There are even devout Catholics who would do severe acts of penance such as self-flagellation as an act of worship. But this is what the Bible says:

"All these regulations refer to things that perish with use; they are simply human commands and teachings. These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-imposed piety, humility, and severe treatment of the body, but they are of no value in checking self-indulgence." (Col. 2:22-23, Ibid.)

Any form of worship rendered according to doctrines and precepts of men, is of no value to God. Roman Catholicism is simply a false religion because it is "promoting self-imposed piety, humility, and severe treatment of the body, but they are of no value in checking self-indulgence."

Don,

Indeed, lots of Roman Catholics do practice severe acts of penance such as self-flagellation and cutting their backs open during the Lenten season!!! This kind of ignorance by members of the Roman Catholic Church are being taken advantage of by priests for this would draw large crowds during the mentioned season and therefore add lots of money to the coffers of this bogus church!!!

The Iglesia ni Cristo has been constant in denouncing this barbaric treatment of one's self for this may cause serious implications upon the health of the practicing individual!!!

Don,

To convince its members to effectively live holy lives, the Catholic Church has what it calls as sacramentals, supposedly designed to increae piety or holiness. A widely-used texts stated thus:

"This sign and other acts and objects because of their association with the sacraments, are called sacramentals... These are of many kinds. The Church includes among them many rites, actions, prayers, and objects, many things both great and small, whose proper use may drive away temptations, remit venial sins, and increae piety.... and many specially blessed objects, such as rosaries,scapulars, medals, and pictures, which either are used in or are reminders of prayer and devotions. Such symbols, such small and familiar gestures, such objects in themselves insignificant, placed, by direction of the Church, at the services of religion and regarded with proper devotion to God, constitute the sacramentals." (Whereon To Stand: What Catholics Believe And Why, pp. 300-301)

Signs and other acts like rites and prayers, and objects such as rosaries, scapulars, and others which in themselves are insignificant, under the direction of the Catholic Church, are thought to be able to drive away temptation and increase piety. Penance, such as fasting (depriving oneself of food) and abstinence (not eating meat on certain days), which are forms of neglecting the body, were also imposed (The Visible Church, p.254). Yet, despite the Catholic's extensive use of these sacramentals, the Catholic Church acknowledges that they are not necessary for salvation nor were they instituted by Christ (My Catholic Faith, p. 373). The truth is, the Bible does not say anything about sacramentals because they were but instituted and imposed by men. Apostle Paul gave an explicit warning on this thus:

"Which all concern things which perish with the using--according to the commandments and doctrines of men?

"These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgence of the flesh." (Col. 2"22-23, NKJV)

Clearly then, the kind of holiness taught by the Catholic Church is not in accordance with the Holy Scriptures. Even the ways of attaining holiness it prescribes are also unscriptural.

A person becomes only a saint when he is in the Church of Christ!!! Why??? It is because the Iglesia ni Cristo is the one purchased with the blood of Christ:


"Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Christ which he has purchased with his blood." [Acts 20:28, Lamsa Translation]

What is the improtance of the blood of Christ??? The Bible states:

"In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness." (Hebrews 9:22, NIV)

Our Lord Jesus Christ shed His blood only for the Church of Christ!!! She is the one purchased by the blood of Christ and no one else!!!

And the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood for without the shedding of the blood there is no forgiveness!!!

Therefore beatification and canonization rites would not bring man to salvation but by joining the Iglesia ni Cristo which is purchased by the blood of Christ!!!

Catholic scams are not the way to salvation but the blood of Christ purifies us if we listen to Him who commands us to enter His body, the Church of Christ!!!

Balasubas,

Even the "Mary Seen Everywhere" could not alter the punishment of God on Roman Catholics who worship graven images!!! How much more with regards to the person who came to Guam and made himself as an instrument in duping the Chamoros!!!

The history of the Chamorro people would attests of the numerous murders committed by the Roman Catholic Church in the whole Marianas!!!
