IGLESIA NI CRISTO – THREAT OF APOSTACY AND REFORMATION

I was approached  by some INC family members, asking me  why I’m blogging about a Church I have no affiliation with.  Good question!  Reasons dictate that if you are sick, you go to a doctor.  When you have a legal issue, you go to a lawyer. Does the doctor or lawyer have to be your family or friend to be credible or worthy of merit?  How often does a dying person ask someone who is trying to save his life if he’s an INC?  Or a Muslim? Or, perhaps, an Atheist?  Do you reject your teacher’s instructions or your chef’s food for the mere lack of affiliation to your Church?

I started taking a keen interest on the issues surrounding the Iglesia Ni Cristo when I participated in Jun Castillo’s Facebook Page.  For a brief introduction, Mr. Castillo was the Head of Legal Department of the INC under Ka Erdy.  He is a lawyer and a Minister.

My presence in his threads was not well received by members of the church, due to the fact that I hold the status “EXPELLED,”  a word most often capitalized by the few self-righteous and judgmental members. I was hurled some unkind and un-Christian words, but  Mr. Castillo, a true Minister,  welcomed me in his wall. His Editorials are so mind boggling that one has to apply good analytical skills in solving his puzzles.  Neither I, nor Mr. Castillo made claims that the conclusions are the absolute truth.

Who is the real Antonio Ebangelinsta aka AE?  For lack of solid proof and evidence, I can not identify him, but I can only speculate who he is by uncovering his motives.

In the Editorials, Jun Castillo used the famous Broadway Show, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, to uncover who is playing the PHANTOM role, and identify his motives.  From there, we concluded that PHANTOM is deeply embedded in the organization, and his motive is to introduce reforms by splitting the church (separate the followers from the resistance), eliminating the ranks of succession and oppositions, and eventually eliminating the Church Council.  

Antonio Ebangelista publicly admitted in his writings that he is not just one individual.  They are seeds, and one can safely assume,  these seeds had already sprouted and have already proliferated relentlessly like weeds.   Like new seeds, they represent new growth and new ideas.  In AE’s  own words, A.E. is ‘ANOTHER ERA.”  Doesn’t that sound like someone is trying to fix a bridge that is not broken? Or someone needs to break the bridge first, so they will have reasons to fix it?

AE is the threat to the Church that is already divided.  Further failure to reunite the Church will allow these seeds to flourish and introduce new disciplines, as already evidenced by what we are witnessing today –  it’s OK to take your protest in public against the government, cause civil unrest, dance in public, humiliate and use profanities, etc.  Whoever follows him will be the REFORMISTS.  As many already know, these are the members who will follow this group to the deepest and darkest valleys.

There will be members who will uphold the traditional disciplines and resist reforms. These member will be persecuted, and subsequently, expelled.  There’s also a possibility that these members will unite, and declare ‘THEY ARE AFRAID NO MORE.”  and renounce their faith.

      1. Why are you still following us if you hate us so much. Channel your energy into something productive, if you don’t mind me advising you. Sorry for my grammar. I’m not a journalist or a Juris Doctor who can write very good arguments. I reach out to simple and exploited people.

    1. Me too, me too! Done with the corruption, the mind games, the threats, and the manipulation… Yay for those of us who can think freely! Sad for everyone else…

  1. @Elisia – wake up! The thumbprint is the mark of the beast. Any INC member that went through Confirmation as a Catholic had the sign of the cross made on the forehead with the right thumb.

    The score in court is even. The plaintiffs have lost all court cases (INC for libel vs Fruto/Samson and the latter for illegal detention vs the former; Anaheim resident minister had restraining order turned down vs DeOcampo, and Lilibeth Rose had her suit to recoup offerings rejected).

    Ask yourself why the Manalo and Menorca cases are still continuing if the so-called “fallen angels” are of Satan. At this point, the INC is behind (2 court orders to remove the guard house and the petition for habeas corpus from Abegail Yanson’s parents withdrawn). I assume you agree with Rom 13:1-7 (NIV) that implies the courts are of God and that we obey laws and pay taxes.

    Do you condone that children are in the compound and the hate speech from some of our more fanatic members.

    The expulsions were a judgment by men. Rom 2:1 states those who judge others do so according to their own sins. The judgment by God occurs in Rev 20:12 and that is 1000 years after Christ’s 2nd coming (Rev 20).
