"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.)

All spurious religions such as Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestantism are suffering from the so-called "Great Religious Recession"!!!

All faithfuls of these cults must now distance themselves before they will be again victimized by willful fabrications of spurious doctrines!!!

Elias, you dont need to explain to me what Jesus did 2000 years ago...it was YOUR words that said that Jesus introduced God 2000 years ago. In other words, your God didnt exist until Jesus? That's why you have no idea what the F you are talking about! hahahaha

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.

Ozzy,

Christ is a man:

1. A man who speaks God's truth

Christ Himself said: "But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this." (Jn. 8:40, NKJV)

2. A very special Man

Apostle Peter said: "My Jewish brothers, listen to these words: Jesus from Nazareth was a very special man. God clearly showed this to you ..." (Acts 2:22, Easy-to Read Version)

3. The one Mediator, A Man

Apostle Paul said: "For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus." (I Tim. 2:5, NKJV)

Brother Felix Y. Manalo is an angel or messenger:

"The word angel ultimately is derived from the Greek aggelos, which is the translation of Hebrew mal'ak, messenger. The primary significance of angel, therefore, is messenger from God, a significance describing function rather than being or nature."

"Ang salitang anghel sa katapus-tapusan ay hango sa salitang Griyego na aggelos, na siyang salin ng salitang Hebreo na mal'ak, sugo. Ang pangunahing kahulugan ng anghel, kung gayon, ay sugo mula sa Diyos, isang kahulugan na naglalarawan ng pananagutan sa halip na kasiyangaan o kalikasan."

Reference:(New Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 1, Nihil Obstat: John P. Whalen, M.A., S.T.D. Imprimatur: Patrick A. O'Boyle, D.D., Archbishop of Washington, USA: The Catholic University of America, 1967, p. 506)

A Catholic book states:

"They are called 'Angels', from a Greek which word means messenger. The word 'Angel', therefore, does not express the nature of these spirits, but rather the offices...."

"Sila ay tinatawag na mga 'Anghel', mula sa salitang Griyego na nangangahulugang sugo. Ang salitang 'Anghel', samakatuwid, ay hindi nagpapahayag ng kalagayan ng mga espiritung ito, kundi manapa'y ng mga tungkulin...."

Reference: Crock, Clement H. Discourses on the Apostles Creed, p. 72. New York, USA: Joseph F. Wagner, Inc., 1938.)

The word "angel" does not refer to the nature of being but to the task, function, or office!!!

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

Dog Behavior,

It is very easy to identify the true messenger of God from the spurious!!! The true messenger of God suddnely gains recognition for his spiritual endeavor as could be gleaned from what happened historically to Brother Felix Y. Manalo:

"What Felix Manalo and his Iglesia have done demonstrate all over again that Christianity, when practiced in earnest, always succeeds, not only in spiritual but even in material terms."

Reference: Nick Joaquin, National Artist of the Philippines for Literature (As published in his book, Ronnie Poe and other Silhouettes,(c) 1977.

Meanwhile, this is what is gained by the false religion, the complaints about her corruptions and grafts:

"In contemporary history one is reminded again of the scandals in the center of Roman Catholicism. Bank scandals, counterfeiting, laundering of Mafia money from illegal business,(Narcotics, prostitution, kidnapping, etc.) name it you have it, kickbacks, hidden wealth-connections with the Mafia, the CIA, Communists and subtle hypocritical connections within the P2 (Propaganda Due-a secret and powerful Masonic Group headed by Licio Gelli).

"The graft and corruption involves billions of dollars. All these eventually leads to the untimely and tragic death of Pope John 1 (Albino Cardinal Luciani) who occupied the papacy for only 33 days ending on September 28, 1978. Research and formal investigations show evidences to murder!"
Reference:(Fajardo, Reynaldo T. Bulletin Today, April 16, 1986, p. 8.)

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

Dog Behavior,

It is your pedigree that usually drips with saliva!!! Oppps, I forgot history that this probable pedigree had the same image as you!!!

This spurious "VICARIVS FILII DEI" would remind us of Noli Me Tangere wherein the father of Crisostomo Ibarra, Don Francisco, was exhumed from a Roman Catholic cemetery and was transfered to a Chinese cemetery because of his quarrel with priests!!! The corpse ended up at the bottom of Laguna de Bay:

Pope Stephen VI (896 to 897)

Arguably the most unbalanced of this lists' unscrupulous popes, Stephen VI set out to get revenge on his predecessor, Pope Formosus, who he felt had wronged him – in spite of the fact that his nemesis was now dead.
Stephen arranged a court date and ordered Formosus' nine-month-old corpse to be exhumed, dressed in sacred papal robes and propped up on a throne to be tried for his crimes. With a deacon answering on behalf of the deceased, Stephen raged and raved accusations of Formosus having had unfairly receiving the pope title at Formosus' skeleton.
The cadaver lost the trial, and Stephen declared Formosus' rule as pope void. He then chopped off the three fingers used to give blessings and ordered the body to be stripped of its robes and dumped into a cemetery for foreigners. Soon after, an earthquake struck Rome, destroying the papal basilica. The corpse was dug up once again and flung into the Tiber Rover, but a few compassionate people fished it out and gave Formosus a proper burial, according to "A History of the Church in the Middle Ages" (Psychology Press, 2002).

However, the macabre trial came back to haunt Stephen, as the earthquake's damage was taken as a sign from God. Rioting mobs of Formosus' supporters arrested Stephen and locked him in a dungeon, where he was later found strangled to death, according to "A History of the Church."

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

What's your choice?

To believe in the Holy Trinity which was just fabricated by the councils of the 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)

As to how the doctrine that the Holy Spirit is God came about, Catholic author, the Rev. Clement H. Crock, provides this information:

"In 381, at the Council of Constantinople, it was defined that it is an article of faith that the Holy Ghost is God."

Reference:(Crock, Clement H. Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 206. Nihil Obstat: Arthur J. Scanlan, STD. Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes. New York: John F. Wagner, Inc., 1938)

...Or to stand by what Christ taught?

"Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said:'Father,... And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent'." (John !7:1,3. New King James Version)

Note:

The Roman Catholic and Protestant cults are teaching the doctrine of the Trinity — that Christ is God the Son and He is equally and eternally the one true God.

But the Bible introduces the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God and not "God the Son." God Himself declared in Matthew 3:17 the following:

"And suddenly 'a voice came from heaven, saying,'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased'." (New King James Version)

The apostles also acknowledge Christ as the Son of God:

"Simon Peter answered and said,'You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God'." (Mt. 16:16, Ibid.)

Apostle Peter said it clear that Christ is the Son of the living God, not the living God Himself. Apostle Paul further proves that Christ is not God by distinguishing Him from the one true God. This he states:

"For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus." (l Tim. 2:5, Ibid.)

By biblical definition, history, and by our bearing the name of Christ who is the head of the Church which He established in the first century, the Iglesia ni Crito (Church of Christ) can easily be identified as true Christians:

1. By definition:

"Christian--From the Greek words Christos,'the annointed one': Christ and ian,'like','similar to'. The word refers to one who lives a life like Jesus, the Christ, are generally known."

Reference:[Miethe, Terry L. The Compact Dictionary of Doctrinal Words, p.56. Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA: Bethany House Publishers, 1988.}

2. By bearing the name of Christ who is the head of the Church, a biblical authentication:

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful." [Col. 3:15, NKJV]

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

3. By bearing the name of the Church which Christ purchased with His blood, a biblical authentication:

"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]

4. Historical authentications:

"5. Did Jesus Christ establish a Church? Yes, from all history, both secular and profane, as well as from the Bible considered as a human document, we learn that Jesus Christ established a Church, which from the earliest times has been called after Him the Christian Church or the Church of Christ."

Reference:[Cassilly, Francis B., S.J. Religion: Doctrine and Practice. For Use in Catholic High Schools pp. 442-443. Twelfth and Revised Edition. USA: Loyola University Press, 1926)

5. Authentications from Catholic and Protestants:

"This Church, founded and organized by Christ and preached by the apostles is the Church of Christ....It is the only true Church, and the one which God orders all men to join."

Reference:[Cassilly, Francis B., S.J. Religion: Doctrine and Practice. For Use in Catholic High Schools pp. 329-330. Twelfth and Revised Edition. USA: Loyola University Press, 1926

"....the Church of Christ today must be in nature, in power, in teaching, what it was when it served men through the twelve apostles. It is to this Church that all are obliged to belong in order to be saved. Those people who, though doubtful, deliberately refuse to join it, cannot be saved."

Reference:(Father Smith Instructs Jackson, pp. 60-61)

The "other sheep" of Christ known as the Iglesia ni Cristo is replete with biblical prophecies and testimonies!!! No one else!!!

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!

It is indeed sad to say that a lot of Filipinos today under estimate the power of the Catholic Church over the final outcome on the RH Bill. Time will tell which way will the majority"....but in the case of the inaction of the Supreme Court regarding the existence of Dynasties, there is no doubt that this time the people will be one with the Church in ousting all the Dynasties from our Government service. It is clearly an abuse and an insult to the people that the SC will not protect the rights of the citizen from fighting for their rights Pres. Aquino once said that the People is his boss and they are the servants,.this alone outs him in bad light if he does not act on this immediately just because his cousin is a candidate too.

People,

You should be reminded that the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church are themselves crocodiles according to history!!! This is how an author Peter De Rosa described a Roman Catholic pope, Innocent III:

"In pursuit of his aims, he shed more blood than any other pontiff. He profoundly misunderstood the Gospel, the Church, the papacy, even the distinction between good and evil. His marvelous perversion of all these is evidenced in a single breathtaking statement:'"Every cleric must obey the Pope, even if he commands what is evil; for no one may judge the Pope'."

Reference: De Rosa, Peter. Vicars of Christ: The Dark Side of the Papacy, Page 73. New York: Crown Publishers, Inc., 1988.

All Roman Catholics, Atheists, Protestants, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Bereans, Baptists, Seventh-day Adventists, Evangelicals, Charismatics, members of the American cults, skeptics, and agnostics must improve their low I.Q.s!!!
