Base Gardiner,Is this Iglesia ni Cristo member speaking for his cult when he says that Pedro Calunsgod didn't live Christ's message?
Wow. I would have thought that a cult which studied the Bible would not be so quick to attack those who follow Christ, their savior. The Iglesia ni Cristo is in full attack mode. They are jealous of being second rate, even in their homeland.
How could we be jealous when all biblical prophecies and testimonies regarding the Iglesia ni Cristo are all fulfilled??? It is Adrian Hastings "Church of sinners and fools" which are jealous!!! For after confiscating the properties of others, Catholic landgrabbings came to halt!!!
The pope's medieval pretensions to supreme and absolute power was violently ended when the United Kingdom of Italy seized the Papal States in 1870. A minute part of this was returned to the pope when Italian dictator Benito Mussolini signed the Lateran Agreements on February 11, 1929:
"By the Lateran Agreements the Italian State renounced all claim to Vatican Territory in Rome; and the Vatican City became an independent sovereign state with an area of 108.7 acres (a little bigger than St. James's Park). In return for a money payment, the Vatican for its part renounced all claim to the previous Papal States.
"It stipulated that the Vatican should receive 750 million lire in cash, and 1000 million lire in Italian five percent consolidated stock."
