Translations using the expression "church of God" in Acts 20:28 are wrong!!! For it was not God who purchased the Church by dying on the cross but our Lord Jesus Christ!!! God is spirit and therefore it is impossible for humans to nail Him on the cross:

"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." (Jn. 4:24, NKJV)

"Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God." (Ps. 90:2,Ibid.)

"Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen." (I Tim. 1:17, Ibid.)

Logical and spiritual thinking should prevail that God is an Eternal God, immortal, invisible, and is from everlasting to everlasting and therefore would not die and nor could He be embedded and seen on the cross!!! It was Christ who died on the cross as attested to by the Apostles and not the Everlasting God:

"So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said,'It is finished!' And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.... But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs." (Jn. 19:30,33, NKJV)

WATCH OUT FOR THE COMING "COLOSSAL RACKETS" OF THE SPURIOUS RELIGIONS!!! 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!!!

For the year 2012 alone, the true Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) has added to its list 35 new congregations or locales, 45 new extensions, 32 new group worship services venues, and 4 ecclesiastical districts!!!

But the spurious religions coming from the Catholic and Protestant cults are in stagnation brought about by the so-called "Great Religious Recession"!!!

The public is hereby warned of possible "colossal scams" that these pariahs may commit such as what is stated by a Catholic writer in his book which says:

"It might be as well for the sake of completeness to add just a word about the miracles which throughout the centuries have been witnesses of the holiness of the Church...It is a certain historical fact that holy people within the Catholic Church have, right until the present day, worked miracles of many different kinds. In fact, proof that miracles have been obtained through the intercession of the candidate, is a necessary condition of canonization. That these miracles do occur so regularly within the Catholic Church and only within the Church, is surely a clear proof that the Holy Spirit is within the Catholic Church in a very special way. It is also noteworthy that the Church appears to have a monopoly when the special intevention of heaven by visions and revelations is in question, as at Lourdes and Fatima."

Reference: Ripley, Francis J. This is the Faith, p. 136. England: Birchley Hall Press, 1960.

A Protestant author in his book says:

"Startling things are happening among Christians today. Amazing claims abound that God is doing signs, wonders, and miracles. These claims are being broadcast by word of mouth, the printed page, television, and radio at a rate so prolific that they can hardly be catalogued, let alone verified.

"Fantastic encounters with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are reported as common place. Healings of all kinds are reported. It is not unusual to hear of striking testimonies about how God has corrected spinal injuries, lengthened legs and removed cancerous tissues in response to faith."

The Glorious year of 2013 AFTER the Mid-year Election on May 13, 2013 INC will add 70 new locales, 90 new extensions and 64 new group worship services venues and 8 ecclesiastical districts!!!

Thank you dear HUNGRY POLITICIANS!!!

The moment you have decided to join Iglesia Ni Cristo is the moment you have decided to throw away your right to choose the leaders that you believe can shape up our country. Under the INC administration, upon the decision of the reigning executive minister of Iglesia Ni Cristo, politicians will be dictated to be voted by the INC cult. There are NO clear spiritual criteria being used by INC in picking politicians to support during election. INC once endorsed Joseph Estrada as a president, later; Estrada was convicted of graft charges. INC also supported Gloria Arroyo as president, later, Arroyo was said to be the Most Corrupt President. No divine intervention is being used in choosing political candidates. It is widely believed that INC chooses candidates based on their popularity and surveys to ensure victory. There were some pay-off rumors in exchange of the INC endorsement during election.

That is how dirty the Philippine politics is.
That is how dirty Iglesia Ni Cristo is.

Bloc-voting is one of the basic doctrines of Iglesia Ni Cristo. INC member who shall not comply with the political decision of the INC administration will be expelled. INC members can smoke cigarettes and drink beer but they are not allowed to break the "unity" of INC in elections. This is absolutely crazy. I don't think that by voting Gloria Arroyo will send you to heaven and by not voting for Gloria Arroyo last 2004 elections can send you to hell. The Manalo family even allowed or ordered INC members to march their way in the violent anti-government protest EDSA 3. INC members have died during the EDSA3. I feel sorry for the INC members who wasted their lives in EDSA 3. The Manalo family will be held responsible for the lost lives of the INC members on the Judgment day.

Nyg,

What I had posted are the latest happenings from within the Catholic and Protestant cults undergoing the so-called "Great Religious Recession" for the year mentioned is year 2012:

"The first decade of the 21st century is characterized by a "Great Religious Recession". Making matters worse, the economic recession in 2007 "did not drive people to religion; instead, it drove religion farther into irrelevance." (p. 82)

"In the United States for example, the Willow Creek Community Church---one of America's famous megachurches---"has suffered membership stagnation and a lack of enthusiasm among the faithful".(Ibid. p.73.)

"Even the Catholic Church has barely maintained its share of the population, mostly because immigrant Catholics offset the massive loss of U.S.-born members".(Ibid. p.20)
Reference:(Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of New Spiritual Awakening, pp. 82, 73, 20.)

An Italian weekly magazine, Sette, which boasts of a circulation reaching 483,000, vivvidly illustrated this rapid decline in Catholic members' enthusiasm in their religion. In an article written by Cesare Fiume in its April 5, 2012 issue, the publication made this observation:

"The number of Catholic marriages and that of priests and nuns are lessened (beaten). To bring religion to the members they must go to the malls ...Here is the 'spiritual X-ray' of Italy. The church was reopened Sunday for Palm Sunday, after months of closure. It was closed from Christmas and remained so until the day before yesterday--unless for some funeral host--due to lack of offerings. The alms were no longer enough to pay the bills for electricity and heating, so the pastor has barred the door ..."

The author likened the Catholic Church to a "candle that is consumed at the base," lamenting that the churches (are) empty, no more odor of frankincense ..." The magnitude of this problem is underscored by the fact that Italy is the seat of Catholicism---yet the "spiritual recession" among her adherents there is strikingly evident. This general atrophy in people's zeal for God is precisely the fulfillment of Christ's prophecy that in these last days, the love of many will grow cold.

Church of Christ (INC)= The Church of the DEAD

John 10:“What my Father has given me is greater than all else, and no one can snatch it out of the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one”

In these verse we can see the word SNATCH...

FELIX MANALO is the ravenous bird who snatch? isn't he?

Noah sent out a dove and a raven from the ark. The dove returned the raven had plenty to eat of dead carcases and did not return.

It was the ravens who came and tried to steal and eat the sacrifice of Abraham in Genesis 15:11.

The word "fowl" in Genesis 15:11 is the Hebrew word "ayit" (Strongs #5861), the very same Hebrew word for RAVENOUS in the text Manalo claims identifies him.

Look at Ezekiel 39:4 where God says he will give the dead bodies of Gog unto the RAVENOUS birds.

There is only one purpose of God calling for a RAVENOUS bird from the east country to come into the land of Israel and that is to eat the dead bodies of the idolaterers among the Israelites.

Manalo applied this bird identity unto himself?

The central administration and members of INC apply this bird to their prophet and founder?

Is this not a good reason to suspicion that the entire deceived mass of the membership of INC are not in their right mind. They do not know or have not been taught to rightly interpret the Word of God?

Manalo claims he is the ravenous bird from the east, from the far east, from the Philippines. And he is the "man" to execute the counsel of God in the Philippines.

This claim if it was not so serious would be funny!

Does Isaiah 46:11 apply to Felix Manalo? If it does, then he has identified the membership of the Iglesia Ni Cristo as dead people. Maybe God allowed Manalo to make this claim so those who did have their right mind would get up out from among dead people and come among the living who are in Christ's true body.

Any Filipino who falls for the perversion that Manalo is the RAVENOUS BIRD is seeking a religions delusion. Do not be so anti-Catholic you will accept a religion and a false prophet who has created a religion far worse then the Catholic Church.

Why believe lie on top of lies and remain in the captivity and mental prison of Manalo and the central administration?
