The tri-media all over the world has confirmed the sickness engulfing Roman Catholic priests, popes, nuns, and Protestant ministers:

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/global-filipino/wo ...

JOHANNESBURG - A South African cardinal who helped elect Pope Francis this week has told the BBC pedophilia is an illness and not a crime.

Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier, the Catholic Archbishop of Durban, told BBC Radio 5 on Saturday that pedophilia was a "disorder" that needed to be treated.

"From my experience, pedophilia is actually an illness. It's not a criminal condition, it's an illness," he said.

Napier said he knew of at least two priests who became pedophiles after they were abused as children.

"Now don't tell me that those people are criminally responsible like somebody who chooses to do something like that. I don't think you can really take the position and say that person deserves to be punished. He was himself damaged."

The Catholic Church has had its image deeply tarnished by a widespread child sex abuse scandal.

Napier was one of the 115 cardinals in the Vatican conclave that elected Pope Francis on Wednesday, the BBC reported.

The first non-European pope in nearly 1,300 years, Francis has signaled a sharp change of style from his predecessor, Benedict, for the 1.2-billion-member Church, which is beset by scandals, intrigue and strife.

He said on Saturday the church should be poor and remember that its mission is to serve the poor.

All Protestants, Aglipayans, Jehovah's Witnesses, United Churches of Christ in the Philippines, Christian Missionary Alliance, Roman Catholics, Atheists, Bereans, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Protestants, "Ang Dating Tumbong Doon" K.Y.J. Eli Fernando Soriano, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, Evangelicals, Charismatics, Spurious Born-again, Presbyterians, Orthodox, 700 Bar Club members, Episcopalians, Methodists, Branch Davidians, members of the American cults, skeptics, agnostics, and those outside of the true Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

IsraelNOTpinas,

The help made or contributed by members of the Iglesia ni Cristo are collected in the Church after worship service and everyone shares!!! Prior to that, the death of a member is announced during worship service including the wake and burial!!!

Therefore, a family in bereavement is fully assured of financial help!!! It is not like your cult wherein nothing is done but lip service only!!!

In the outback of Australia known as Bundaberg, the true Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) recently conducted a massive relief operation in the said community as a result of the massive flooding in the area!!!

Watch INCTV and NET 25 in its telecasts of the said relief operation wherein members of the Church from the Philippines and all over Australia pool their efforts and resources to alleviate the plight of the victims!!!

The volunteers helped in cleaning the community so that it would return to normal and schools including playgrounds which were destroyed by the flood were subjected to immediate repair and beautification!!! The Iglesia ni Cristo also donated cash to schools in the area!!!

"God provided his son, Jesus Christ in the flesh. His ministry to humanity ended with his death on the cross and his resurrection three days later. The Bible teaches that his death provided a bridge back to God for those who have faith."

Lol,

Faith is not enough for it must be coupled with works!!! The Bible states:

"What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?" (James 2:14, NKJV)

Faith whithout works cannot save!!! The command of Christ must be followed in order for faith to have value!!! Christ says:

"Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying,‘Lord, Lord, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you,‘I do not know you, where you are from,’

"Then you will begin to say,‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’ But He will say,‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’ There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and yourselves thrust out." (Luke 13:24-28, NKJV)

Therefore, man must enter or join the true Church to be saved and to attain life everlasting, for by doing so, he is letting God direct his life because he is obeying His command taught by the Lord Jesus Christ.

SPELL SCAM?

PYRAMIDING is a membership GAME in order to GAIN WEALTH you must be a member of a PYRAMIDING SCAM and then recruits member to JOIN. The more members you recruit the higher your commission.

iglesia ni cristo is a membership RELIGION just like a SCAM.

if you give an offering to

100 INC locale of Pag-asa
200 INC Locale of Commonwealth
300 INC Locale of Capitol

600 pesos goes to INC TREASURY

Born-AGAIN group is not a scam,
we are not a membership CULT just like the iglesia NO cristo

1 Cor 3:5-9
5 What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe—as the Lord has assigned to each his task.
6 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.
7 So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. 9 For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.

Methodist planted the seed
and Presbyterian watered it
GOD make it GROW

1 Corinthians 3:18-22
Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written:“He catches the wise in their craftiness”[a]; 20 and again,“The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.”[b]

LOOK very CLOSELY to verse 21 ELIAS might deceive you.

21 So then, no more boasting about human leaders! All things are yours,

22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas[c] or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.

NO MORE BOASTING ABOUT HUMAN LEADERS
of course ELIAS will say

IsraelNOTpinas,

The spurious "Born-again" cults are into the pryramiding scam!!! After so much collection and duping of their members, their chapels remain dilapidated as attested to by one of their writers:

“How is it that the INC has so many palatial-churches and we see them all over the country, while ours… well, sometimes we can't even tell UCCP churches from dilapidated, wooden residential houses.”

"Worse, when we try to find models for church growth, models for church management, models for church planning, we could hardly look at our own, but turn our eyes elsewhere--to the INC."

Reference: Bodegon, Joel L. The Isaiah Paradigm: Recapturing the Role of Laity, p.116)

Just read how one of your authorities has given his adulations about the Iglesia ni Cristo!!! He said, "that we have many palatial churches all over the country"!!! He continued by saying that "Born-again" churches can't be differentiated from dilapidated wooden residential houses"!!! Where is the money coming from your colossal rackets???

Try to understand what Mr. Bodegon said here: "Perhaps, there is something about the INC,... that we are missing. Could it be that their leaders and more important, their members believe--and more than just believing, live out their faith?"

All Roman Catholics, United Church of Christ in the Philippines, Philippine General Council of Assemblies of God, Philippines For Jesus Movement, Atheists, United Methodist Church Philippines, General Assembly of Presbyterian Church in the Philippines, Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, "Ang Dating Tumbong Doon" K.Y.J.

You are not??? You make me laugh!!! For the true Church of Christ is composed of members (body or church) and head (Christ):

"And He is the head of the body, the church..." [Col. 1: 18, NKJV].

"For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation,; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness." [Rom. 12: 4-8. NKJV]

EXPOSE AND BEWARE OF THE COMING "COLOSSAL RACKETS" OF THE SPURIOUS RELIGIONS SUCH AS THE "BORN-AGAIN" CULTS!!! DRIVE THEM AWAY FROM YOUR HOMES!!!

IsraelNOTpinas,

Mr. Lamsa is not alone in correctly translating Acts 20:20 and in using the expression 'church of Christ' for others too have the same translation:

"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]

"Therefore, take care of yourselves, and of all the congregation in which you have been appointed through the holy Spirit as bishops, to shepherd the church of Jesus Christ, that which he established by his blood." (Disciples New Testament)

"Take heed therefore to yourselves, and to the whole flock over which the Spirit of Holiness hath constituted you the bishops; to pasture the church of the Meshiha [Christ] which he hath purchased with his blood." (Etheridge Translation)

"Take heed therefore to yourselves, and to the whole flock over which the Spirit of Holiness hath constituted you the bishops; to pasture the church of Christ which he hath purchased with his blood." (Peshitta)

IsraelNOTpinas,

This is a partial listing of the cults which believe that Christ is God or deity:

Spurious "Born-again", Roman Catholics, United Church of Christ in the Philippines, Philippine General Council of Assemblies of God, Philippines For Jesus Movement, Atheists, United Methodist Church Philippines, General Assembly of Presbyterian Church in the Philippines, Convention of Philippine Baptist Churches, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, "Ang Dating Tumbong Doon" K.Y.J. Eli Fernando Soriano, Baptists, Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches, Seventh-day Adventists, Evangelicals, Charismatics, Spurious Born-again, Presbyterians, Orthodox, Aglipayans, 700 Bar Club members, Episcopalians, Methodists, Branch Davidians, members of European and American cults, Skeptics, Agnostics, and those outside of the true Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo).

The first-century Christians never had the belief that Christ was God!!! Which religion fabricated the false doctine??? The Roman Catholic Church:

"Thus, for example, it was not until 325 A.D., at the Council of Nicaea, that the [Catholic} Church defined for us that it was an article of faith that Jesus is truly God."

Reference:(Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206)

Did the Protestant cults swallowed or accepted the fabrication of the Roman Catholic Church that Christ is God??? A BIG YES!!!

Did the first-century Christians believe that Christ is God??? A BIG NO!!! How did the Apostles teach about Christ??? According to the Bible:

"Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son Of God, God abides in Him, and he in God." (l John 4:15, Ibid.)

Christ is the Son of God!!! This is not equivalent to saying that He is "God the Son." To believe in the truth that Christ is the Son of God is a great blessing because such a believer abides in God and God abides in him!!! Hence, it is of vital importance that the Father alone is the true God while Jesus Christ is the Son of God, whom the Father had sent!!! This belief is the right understanding that will lead man to eternal life!!!

As stated earlier, Christ is the Son of God and not "God the Son"!!! Therefore, He is not God!!! Whom then did Christ recognize and introduce as His God??? He Himself said:

" ... Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them,'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God'." (John 20:17, NIV

The Lord Jesus Christ deified the Father as His God!!! His teaching that the Father is the one and only true God is also the truth that the apostles preached:

"Praise be to God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Those who uphold this biblical teaching concerning the Father will not be lead away from the truth, they will not fall into the error that there are other gods besides the Father!!!

The Bible introduces the Lord Jesus Christ as God's dear Son:

"While He was talking, a shining cloud came over them, and a voice from the cloud said,'This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased--listen to him!'" (Mt. 17:5, TEV)

God Himself declared that Christ is His Son!!! This truth proves that Christ is not God!!! He is God's Son and not "God the Son"!!!

BEWARE AND WATCH OUT FOR THE COMING "COLOSSAL RACKETS" OF THE SPURIOUS RELIGIONS KNOWN AS "BORN-AGAIN"!!! DRIVE THEM AWAY FROM YOUR HOMES!!!

WORKINGMEN OF ALL COUNTRIES UNITE!!! PEASANTS AND PROFESSIONALS UNITE!!! SMASH TO IGNOMINY AND DEFEAT THE EVILS OF THESE SPURIOUS RELIGIONS!!! YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT THEIR FALSITIES!!!

Nyg,

The real historical rapist with a usurped title as "VICARIVS FILII DEI":

Pope Benedict IX (1032 to 1048)

Gaining power and wealth from an early age as a result of his family's ties to the church, Benedict IX essentially inherited the title of pope since he was the nephew of both Pope John XIX and Pope Benedict VIII. He was only 20 years old, but quickly developed a reputation as being "cruel and immoral," according to "The Rise of the Medieval World, 500 – 1300" (Greenwood Publishing Group, 2002).

In fact, in his third book of dialogues, Pope Victor III wrote of Benedict IX's "rapes, murders and other unspeakable acts. His life as a pope so vile, so foul, so execrable, that I shudder to think of it," according to "The Spirit."

Saint Peter Damian had similar things to say of Benedict IX, describing him as "feasting on immorality" and "a demon from hell in the disguise of a priest," who sponsored orgies and routinely partook in bestiality, according to "The Spirit." In his final act of corruption as pope, Benedict IX decided that he wanted to pursue marriage, so he sold his holy title to his godfather for 1,500 pounds (680 kilograms) of gold.

All Roman Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Atheists, and Protestants must improve their low I.Q.s!!!
