Lol,

Why not tell your fellow Catholics and your popes and priests that your Holy Rosary is being repeated 250 times and memorized!!! It is also a pagan way!!!

Useless repititions will; not lead to salvation!!!

Priests and popes of the Roman Catholic Church actually claim equality with Christ as proven by these references:

"The official title of the pope is:'His Holiness the Pope, Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ on Earth...'"

Reference:[K.E. Skydsgaard,et al.The Church As The Body of Christ, vol. 1, p.7]

"Vicar of Christ: the Pope as visible head of the Church,acting in place of Christ..."

Reference:[Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. Catechism for Filipino Catholics, p.676]

"The priest is another Christ."

Reference:[Richard P. Hire,Our Christian Faith,p.154]

Roman Catholic priests and popes claim equality with Christ when they claim and arrogate unto themselves the following titles:

1. "Vicarius Christi" or Vicar of Christ.
2. "VICARIVS FILII DEI" or Vicar of the Son of God.
3. As another Christ.

Why is it wrong for Catholic priests and popes to claim equality with our Lord Jesus Christ??? It is because the Bible declares that nobody can ever take the place of Christ:

"But He holds His priesthood unchangeably, because He lives on forever.Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost ...those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them."[Heb.7:24-25,Amplif ied Bible]

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." [Heb.13:8, NIV]

The Catholic Church teaches that, as Vicars of Christ, the Popes and the priests act in place of Jesus Christ!!! But the Bible declares that Christ "holds His priesthood unchangeably." He is the same yesterday, today, and forever!!! Therefore no one can ever act in His place or be another Christ!!!

How did Arius describe those who belong to the false religions??? They consider God and Christ as both Gods!!! He said:

"... if God the Father and the Son were both divine, then there were two gods, which meant that Christianity was not a monotheistic religion".

Reference: Magoffin. Ralph V.D and Frederick Duncalf. Ancient and Medieval History: The rise of classical culture and the development of medieval civilization, p. 394. Silver Burdett Company, 1939.

Those who believe that both God and Christ are Gods do not uphold the monotheistic belief of Christianity!!! What is the belief of those who oppose monotheistic Christianity???

" ... maintaining strongly that Jesus Christ was Eternal God in the form of a man and that beliefs to the contrary were heretical."

Reference: Rubenstein, Richard E. When Jesus Became God: The Epic Fight Over Christ's Divinity in the Last days of Rome, p. 56. New York: Harcourt Brace & Company, 1999.

According to those who oppose monotheistic Christianity, our Lord Jesus Christ is Eternal God!!! But what is the true belief of monotheistic Christianity in the first century???

"The New Testament says that Jesus was the Word of God, it says that God was in Christ, it says that Jesus is the Son of God; but it does not say that Jesus was God ..."

Reference:(Robinson, John A.T. Honest To God, p. 70. London: SCM Press Ltd., 1963.)

The first-century Chrsitians 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)

All Bereans, Mormons, Charismatics, Evangelicals, Roman Catholics, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Methodists, Seventh-day Adventists, Protestants, Branch Davidians, members of American and European cults, Methodists, Baptists, Pagans, Spurious Born-again, Orthodox, 700 Bar Club members, "Ang Dating Tumbong Doon K.Y.J.Eli Fernando Soriano", Adnostics, Skeptics, Jehovah's Witnesses, Aglipayans, and all those outside of the Iglesia ni Cristo must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

"Now they (Arians) were convicted inexorably of polytheism and of deifying the creature." (The Formation of Christian Dogma, An Historical Study of its Problems; Martin Werner, p160, Werner is a modernist who also advocates Angel Christology commenting on Arianism)

A technically more accurate term to describe Iglesia ni cristo in general is HENOTHEIST rather than polytheist.

But what INC has ever heard of the term "henotheist". We frankly don't care to educate the iglesia world wide! In a broader sense, in the way they define polytheism, by their own understanding, they are polytheists. We simply used their own measuring stick on themselves!

Is Jesus a mere man to be worshipped because the Father told to do so?

ANGEL CHRISTOLOGY - not God but higher than angels maybe the head of the angels or 2nd in command to Lucifer!

Angel Christology leads to Blasphemy!!!

JESUS Christ and Lucifer are half brothers.
Thor and Loki are half brothers.
Steve Armstrong and Prince Zardoz are half brothers.
Hercules and Perseus are half brothers.

You are all idolaters because your gods is not the God of the Bible!!! You are a "Born-again" minister but you have no knowledge at all about being born again!!! You don't understand the "water and spirit" mentioned in the verses!!!

You are a pseudo-preacher!!! You have no right to preach!!! You and your companions in the cults have no connection to God and Christ!!! You were never called!!!

IsraelNOTpinas,

And who persecuted the Arians??? The Roman Catholic Church and the pagan emperor who converted to Catholicism:

"This is what happened at Nicaea. Some six weeks after the council opened, on June 19, 325, Emperor Constantine insisted that all bishops who had been present should endorse a new creed that confirmed Christ as God and condemned Arius. Anyone who did not sign this document was to be excommunicated and exiled."

"Ito ang nangyari sa Nicea. Mga anim na linggo pagkatapos ng pagbubukas ng konsilyo, noong Hunyo 19, 325, iginiit ni Emperador Constantino na ang lahat ng obispo na dumalo ay dapat iendorso ang isang bagong kredo na nagpapahayag na si Cristo ay Diyos at kumukondena kay Ario. Sinomang hindi lalagda sa dokumentong ito ay ititiwalag at ipatatapon."

Reference: Lehmann, Johannes. The Jesus Establishment, p. 173. Garden City, New York: Doubleday & Company Inc., 1974.

Now, it is clear that you believe in a spurious God fabricated by emperor Constantine and the Council of Nicaea!!!

You are therefore of low I.Q.!!!

"Traditional Christianity also teaches that the return of Jesus Christ is imminent. Throughout the gospels Jesus is quoted as saying that no one, not even he, knows the day or the hour of his return, that his coming will be at a time when he is not expected, and that believers should keep watch and be ready. The imminent return of Jesus Christ built expectation in generations of believers, who were comforted that soon they might be delivered from the cares and tribulations of this world."

FELIX Manalo made a wrong prediction to the birth of His son. ERA NEW (Erano)

But because Felix cheats Eranew's mother Honorata de Guzman during her pregnancy.

On January 1, 1925 Felix abused a Seventh day Adventist Minor

The little boy ERANEW was born on January 2, 1925

IsraelNOTpinas,

The reason why the spurious "Born-again" cults make no headway in the Philippines is due to the fact that you are more engaged in gossipmongerings!!! Thus, you are no matched to the disciplined Iglesia ni Cristo as proven in these statements:


“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?"

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

WATCH OUT FOR THE COMING "COLOSSAL RACKETS" AND GOSSIPMONGERINGS 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:

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.

Stop claiming that you were an Iglesia ni Cristo for if I will ask you a question again, you will not be able to answer for sure!!! It is enough that you claimed that you are a "Born-again" minister for other than that you will be just trashed to pieces and feces!!!

You have to accept that your religion is a fraud!!! You are all built on falsities and the concoctiions of Satan!!! You cannot even bring or coax your ministers to debate with ours!!!
