Iglesia Ni Cristo - What does Catholics and Protestants say

Iglesia Ni Cristo is a CULT
The INC magazine Pasugo always try to convince their members that the whole world admire Iglesia Ni Cristo. (Pasugo is being sold to INC members on a regular basis. For INC members to be updated with their church' news, activities and teachings, INC members have to buy PASUGO). Different publications are being used by INC fanatics to stop their members from leaving their disintegrating membership. We can never see any press release by the INC administration about their "true" total membership recently neither any news about massive number of new members.

Iglesia Ni Cristo endorses Joseph ERAP Estrada

Iglesia Ni Cristo is a Cult.
Joseph ERAP Estrada is a convicted plunderer.

What is the tie that binds INC and ERAP? EDSA 3.

The report of the reputable PCIJ (Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism) about the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church at the Crossroads is quite revealing and damaging to the INC cult. The report is about how involved the INC was with the violent EDSA 3 and the INC' "closeness" to ERAP. As the report stated...

Iglesia Ni Cristo endorses Noynoy Aquino for President

Does the yellow color of Noynoy Aquino will mix well with INC's 3 color? (Green, White and Red)

Noynoy Aquino is the consistent leader in any survey before the election. Why would INC ignore that? Naturally, INC will pick the one who will surely win. INC Executive Minister Eduardo V. Manalo is basically new to this kind of stuffs since he just took over the Manalo family business since Erano Manalo died last year(2009). As the new INC leader he should first establish his political status and go to the sure-winner. INC do not have the luxury to bet on a political loser like Manny Villar, Gilbert Teodoro and ERAP Estrada. Iglesia Ni Cristo previously endorsed ERAP Estrada as their president in the 1998 Philippine presidential election but INC dropped ERAP like a hot potato when Estrada was convicted of plunder.

Iglesia Ni Cristo and Lea Salonga's Journey

Lea Salonga is an Iglesia Ni Cristo member? No.
It will be a cold day in hell when that happens.
Lea Salonga is a smart world-class Filipina entertainer.
She would not do such a thing, a crazy thing like joining INC.

(Iglesia Ni Cristo did not revealed how much they paid Lea Salonga for her appearance in their 95th Anniversary)

Iglesia Ni Cristo Arlyn Dela Cruz is an INC member

I was really surprised when I have read Arlyn Dela Cruz' report that Iglesia Ni Cristo's total voter membership is at around 8 million [INC claim based on the 2007 national and local elections.]. As far as I know, Arlyn Dela Cruz is an Iglesia Ni Cristo member. Yes, I think she is the one who was kidnapped in Basilan some few years ago. Being an INC member, it is quite understandable that INC members like Arlyn Dela Cruz would use an OVERESTIMATED total number of INC voting members (8 million INC voters is the INC claim.)

Religious bloc-voting in the Philippines

El Shaddai's Mike Velade, Kingdom of Jesus Christ Pastor Apollo Quiboloy and INC minister Eduardo Manalo's decision on whom they are going to pick as the next Philippine president are being sought-after by politicians here in the Philippines. These 3 cult leaders are well known for giving an "alleged" substantial number of votes to the lucky politicians. Based on the recent report from, Quiboloy's followers are 6 million while INC's followers are only 3 million.

This is why I hate religious bloc-voting here in the Philippines. Politicians are falling on their knees in front of these "Church leaders" begging for their votes. It's a good thing that the Catholic Church here in Philippines does not dictates it's members to whom should they vote unlike Quiboloy and the Manalo family. In INC, members who are not following the INC' dictatorship in voting politicians would mean expulsion to their disobedient members.

Iglesia Ni Cristo member tops PMA graduates

Air Force First Class Cadet Eraño Bontilao Belen (left) and Cadet First Class Froilan Pinay-an, who top the Philippine Military Academy Class of 2010.

Well, this is a scary news.

Political Dynasty in The Philippines

The 1987 Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines:
Article 2 - Declaration of Principles and State Policies, Section 26:
The State shall guarantee equal access to opportunities for public service, and prohibit political dynasties as may be defined by law.
prohibit = disallow = forbid

The problem is, the framers of the 1987 Philippine Constitution failed to define the law to implement the prohibition of political dynasty. They left-out the construction of the enabling law on how to implement the prohibition of political dynasty. It means they entrusted the task of making the law about political dynasty in the Congress. Philippine Congress passing a law prohibiting political dynasty? You must be dreaming. You should not expect the 'wise men' of the congress to shoot their own foot and hoofs.

Iglesia Ni Cristo Eraño G. Manalo Special Stamps

Iglesia Ni Cristo cult has been very sensitive when the name of a member of Manalo family is at stake. They glorify the Manalo family too much that they would not even consider other people leading their church; their leader should always come from the Manalo family (this topic was already discussed in the Religious Dynasty page on this blog). The Iglesia Ni Cristo cult consider their founder as an angel, Felix Manalo is an ex-catholic. They even erected a bronze statue for their beloved leader to commemorate the life and death of their leader Felix Manalo.

EDSA 3 Colors of Iglesia Ni Cristo is PowerLESS

Please follow the links and read about how the involvement of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) is really evident to the violent protest EDSA 3

Here are some points that needs to be highlighted...

  • One member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo told CNN that followers are being encouraged to join the pro-Estrada demonstrations.
  • Another INC member told ASIAWeek that ..."There was a [church] circular ordering us to go to EDSA. ...When an emcee told us to go [to the presidential palace], we went." 
  • 3 of 4 protesters that have died in the violent protest are members of Iglesia Ni Cristo, many of the 113 people injured were INC members, as reported by Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) 
  • INC media arms net 25 and DZEC, a radio station owned by the Eagle Broadcasting Corporation provided almost a round-the-clock coverage of the EDSA III. notably, other media groups (e.g. ABS-CBN 2 and GMA7) were not welcomed by the protesters to cover the protest.

Iglesia Ni Cristo and the Hacienda Luisita

Noynoy Aquino's popularity raised up after his declaration on running as the next Philippine president on next year's Philippine National election 2010. I think one of the major issue Noynoy had to answer before/during the election campaign is the Hacienda Luisita controversy linked to the Cojuanco-Aquino family. Which makes me think what might be the reaction of the Iglesia ni Cristo organization about this. I think this deserves a historical review between INC and the Hacienda Luisita.

Iglesia Ni Cristo members had a quite bitter experience on the Hacienda Luisita of the Cojuanco-Aquino family in Tarlac. INC members resigned from the union after being prompted by their church circular dated April 1, 1959. Expulsion from the INC church will be given to those who will violate the following circular.

Iglesia Ni Cristo Property in El Cajon California

Owning your own property (e.g. house and lot) in the United States is the American dream. It's because it is worth a fortune to own one. Iglesia Ni Cristo members are mostly poor Filipinos. In the province where I live, some of them are just tricycle drivers, office clerks but some of them are rich folks. Iglesia Ni Cristo chapels are well-known all over the Philippines for its modern-design and being painted with white, red and green color once in a while (so it appears it is always new and properly maintained).

San Diego Business Journal

What surprised me last February 2010 is that a report from San Diego Business Journal said that the Philippine-based Iglesia Ni Cristo cult was able to buy a property in El Cajon (around California USA) worth $1,755,000 (over 79,000,000 Philippine pesos). In a time where people are still suffering the effect of global recession and Filipinos are loosing their job, Iglesia Ni Cristo was able to buy a US church facility with the high cost of $1,755,000 (over 79,000,000 Philippine pesos)!!!

Iglesia Ni Cristo may vote Manny Villar as President in Election 2010

Former Arroyo spokesman broker’s Villar-INC meeting

Possible reasons why Iglesia Ni Cristo would pick Manny Villar
  1. INC cannot pick Noynoy because of their bitter experience in Hacienda Luisita
  2. Manny Villar's poll rating is starting to catch up. INC cult cannot pick a candidate with low survey ratings(To ensure political favor).
  3. Noynoy is a devout catholic.
I think this is also a perfect time to think about what kind of criteria does the Iglesia Ni Cristo leadership is using in picking the president that their whole church will be supporting. I'm assuming that Iglesia Ni Cristo members have no voice in picking candidates, it all depends on the Iglesia Ni Cristo leaders.

Religious Dynasty in the Philippines

With the Catholic Church's doctrine of Clerical celibacy, Philippines was saved from the Religious Dynasty of the Catholic Church. But Philippines were not spared from the Manalo family of Iglesia Ni Cristo. Iglesia Ni Cristo was founded by Felix Manalo during the 1940's. Felix Manalo died and handed down the INC administration to his son, Eraño Manalo. This year, Eraño Manalo died and it is widely believed that Eduardo V. Manalo is expected to take over the INC administration. This is a clear evidence of reasoning that the Manalo family obviously handles the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) church. [I have learned from a catholic blogsite that the INC church is registered by Felix Manalo as a Corporation Sole.]
