Newsflash!!! Head of the Toppled Churches in the Philippines Surrounded By Homosexual Priests:

Swiss Guard veteran: Gay 'secret society' in the Vatican a security problem for Pope Francis

"A former commander of the Swiss Guard, the small force of men whose job it is to protect the pope, has said there is “a network of homosexuals” within the Vatican, the latest in a series of claims about gay priests working at the heart of the Roman Catholic church.

Elmar Mäder, who was commandant of the Guard from 2002 until 2008, said that his time at the heart of the Vatican had given him an insight into certain aspects of life there.“I cannot refute the claim that there is a network of homosexuals. My experiences would indicate the existence of such a thing,” he told the Swiss newspaper Schweiz am Sonntag.

Famed for their striking uniforms of blue, red and orange, recruits to the Guard swear to protect the pope and his successors with their lives."

Compared to the banyan trees covering the belfries of Roman Catholic and Protestant chapels, the Iglesia ni Cristo chapels are well-maintained:

'Distinctive, imposing, dynamic'

" ... the INC each year dedicates approximately 100 church buildings that bristle with magnificent spires, feature concrete soaring arches, are painted in distinctive pastel colors, and display high standards of maintenance. Enclosed by imposing fences and carefully manicured grounds, each church dominate the local skyline. The imposing sacred structures of this dynamic religion have thus imprinted both urban and rural landscapes of the Philippines."

Reference:(Reed, Robert. "From local to global: The expanding mission of the Iglesia Ni Cristo in the Philippines and throughout the world." Retrieved April 21, 2003 from http://www.ethnicstudies.ucsd.edu/html/spring ...)

Have you noticed something in what he said??? He said that our chapels "are painted in distinctive pastel colors, and display high standards of maintenance."

Here's another comparison that will elevate more the glorious stature of the Iglesia ni Cristo when compared to the false religions Of Roman Catholicism and Protestantism:

“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."

"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?"

Not only are there Roman Catholic tragedies in her doctrines, rubbles, and cross-eyed images, she also have tragedies which have just started to come out into the open:

Newsflash!!! Those Wanting To Be Catholic Chihuahua Priests Are Also Declining

EMPTY SEMINARIES

Beyond a vague understanding of a need for "more vocations," most Catholics are perhaps unaware of the disaster facing the American priesthood. After skyrocketing from about 27,000 in 1930 to 58,000 in 1965, the number of priests in the United States dropped to 45,000 in 2002. By 2020, there will be about 31,000 priests--and only 15,000 will be under the age of 70, according to a study conducted by Dr. James R. Lothian of Fordham University.

The shortage of priests has created a problem previously unknown to modern Catholics: the priestless parish. Only 3 percent of the parishes in the US--a total of 549--were without a priest in 1965. In 2002 there were 2,928 priestless parishes, about 15 percent of all US parishes. By 2020, a quarter of all parishes, 4,656, will have no priest.

As one would expect, the priest dearth has been fueled by a collapse in the seminarian population. There were 16,300 seminarians in 1930 and 49,000 in 1965. By 2002 the number had plunged to 4,700: a 90 percent decrease. Without any students, countless seminaries across the country have been sold or shuttered. There were 596 seminaries in 1965, and only 200 in 2002.

And empty seminaries result in declining ordinations. While there were 1,575 ordinations to the priesthood in 1965, in 2002 there were 450, a decrease of 350 percent. Taking into account ordinations, deaths and departures.

One of the tragedies of the Vatican Compound is the pregnant nun from El Salvador!!! She insinuated the fatherhood responsible for her pregnancy by not naming her infant after a dog!!! She called the child infant as Francis!!!

There was a frown from the bearer of the spurious title known as "VICARIVS FILLI DEI" and whose title is equal to the number "666" in the Book of Revelation!!! He said, "No, not Me!!! The priests did it their way."

If you would just closely examine the Roman Catholic Church with its plagues eating her slowly but surely, you will be able to discern as to where her faithfuls will go comes Judgment Day!!! Into the lake of fire, the second and eternal death!!!

Woe to the sands of the sea!!! For the false and fabricated purgatory is not a solution to your problems!!!

A native who has witnessed the delusion speaks

Members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, unlike the rest of us Filipinos, are not allowed to think for themselves when it comes to interpretation of the Bible.

They must submit to the official interpretation of Scripture from the Central Administration of the Iglesia Ni Cristo.

If any member disagrees with the interpretation of the Scriptures as taught by the Central Administration of the Iglesia Ni Cristo, they are cast out and told they are damned into the flames of hell. This is a frightening and extremely traumatic experience, so devastating to a person's life, employment, and careers, few can escape and live a normal life.

The force by which members of INC are intimidated to stay in the membership is tremendous, especially those who are second, third, and fourth generation. By now they are brainwashed in the cult's teachings and convinced they are in the true Church of Christ.

Membership in this group has increased in recent years due to the lack of public information that would exposed the INC as a cult group and its doctrine and teachings non-biblical.
Many feel scared and threatened by the manner the group is held so tightly in the grip of such few men and women of power. Add to this religious fear that there may be a hit squad (religious mafia), authorized to enact the death penalty upon those who depart, and members become prisoners of conscience in a nation where there is supposed to be freedom of religion by all citizens protected by the government.

In the Philippines it is well known that different levels of government have given the INC use of military, police, and other enforcement bodies the power to persecute, arrest, and abuse anyone who openly opposes INC.

The infiltration of the Philippine government by INC members on all levels makes it dangerous to confront the false doctrines being taught in INC churches.

INC does not like other religious groups trying to convert its members. Splinter groups of INC and their leaders are constantly harassed, threatened, and openly abused by government agencies.

It is reported that the INC has infiltrated employment positions containing power and authority on all levels of the Philippine government.

It is reported that these employees have used their positions for the benefit and power of INC staff and leaders.

It is also reported that INC has also infiltrated all levels of Government and these public servants have used their offices and power for the benefit of the INC and its staff and leaders.

WARNING!
While there may not be wide-spread executions and death squads searching for fleeing members of INC or those who publicly disagree with INC policy and doctrines, just one such case of torture, beheading, burning and killing, the knowledge of which is spread from province to province, is enough to keep members and dissenters not to question practices of INC or its doctrines.

Anyone who challenges the INC is currently in danger of limb, body, and life!

4 Deacons murdered hapless victims inside the church compound shown below in the presence of their church Pastor (Minister) and the night security guard on duty who was supposed to protect anyone from harm and crime. This was witnessed by a lady church member who had to tell the truth about what she saw the night of the murder.

Pretoria: The Catholic priest accused of making sexual advances was released on bail Monday.

PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA - The Catholic priest accused of making sexual advances towards a 17-year-old boy was released on R2 000 bail on Monday. Once known as one of Pretoria’s most-loved priests, he appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court wearing dark tracksuit pants and a bright green T-shirt. He kept his head bowed throughout his 30-minute bail application, only looking at the magistrate when directly addressed. The priest – who cannot be named for legal reasons – was arrested on Friday, although it appears the allegations stem from some time ago. It is alleged he made sexual advances towards the teenager who had come to him for...

Damasyang,

This is the explanation, the Roman Catholic Church has lots of fabrications:

“Saanman sa Bagong Tipan ay walang tuwiran o tahasang binanggit na si Cristo ay Diyos...”

“The New Testament nowhere says tout court that Christ is God.”
