Vanessa Almoranas,

Reaction of foreigners is to join the Iglesia Ni Cristo:

'Always grateful'

As chief of the Infectious Disease and Epidemiology Department of Windham Hospital, Dr. Clifford Stirba has seen the worst what can happen to people from all walks of life. "I take care not only of general medicine patients but also some of the more unfortunate patients in the world, such as the patients that have HIV, which causes AIDS," he said, "I see a lot of unfortunate young people who get sick and die."

Such experiences have made him appreciate more the good things he is fortunate to have. And it's not just having a stable profession and family that he is thankful for. He professed: "I thank God that He has given me the opportunity to have my profession, to have my family, and my faith. And for this I am always grateful."
Baptized in 1984, Brother Clifford often encounters people who ask him why he joined the Church of Christ.
"My answer would be," said Brother Clifford who is currently head deacon in the Locale of Norwich, Connecticut, "It's the teaching which is the most sensible."

CLIFFORD STIRBA, M.D. American

'A better person'

A former Baptist, Brother Darryl said he had explored different religions in search of a religion "that is consistent with the scriptures" His search ended when he attended an evangelical mission of the Church of Christ in San Diego, California.
"When I heard the gospel preached by the minister, I became interested" recounted this federal prosecutor from Washington, D.C. "I was intrigued when the minister said that there is only a single Church that God intends to save. The minister spoke nothing about believing in the Trinity, and that it was not found in the scriptures."

Concerning how becoming a member of the Church changed him and the way he views life, he said:
"God's teachings about marriage helps me to be a better husband. I have become a better person."

'More humble, understanding, and patient'

Like many others, New Yorker Brother Thomas found the Bible studies in the Church of Christ "very informative" and that they "made a lot of sense." But more than just a learning experience, his study of the teachings of and eventual conversion into the Church of Christ changed him a lot as a person. He disclosed:

"Now, I became a little more humble, a little more understanding, and more patient."

Brother Thomas says he doesn't want to miss the worship service because as he puts it, "if I did I would feel guilty." For him, becoming a member of the Church of Christ is what every person needs in order to be guided "in the right light."

'100% sure'

Her first encounter with the Church of Christ was during one of its worship services. "The first thing that caught my attention/' said Sister Leticia, a former Catholic from Tijuana, Mexico, "was there were no images [for worship] when we entered the worship building. Also, the brethren warmly greeted us."
After she attended the Bible studies and finished listening to all the lessons taught to those who wish to join the Church, she was convinced that she has found what she had been looking for.
She affirmed this when she said, "I am one-hundred- percent sure that this is the true Church. I have proven, in my years in the Church, that ail of its teachings are from the Bible." In my personal life, if I experience problems or have doubts or feel helpless, "I call unto God and, eventually, all my problems are solved."

Vanessa In The Wee Hours of the Night,

Here's more of the positive reactions of foreigners who joined the true Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo):

'We live in peace'
Born and raised in the predominantly Catholic country of Venezuela, Dr. Elvia Garcia remembers how she used to "attend [religion] classes with a Catholic priest" and study the Bible like a history book." So, when she accepted the invitation of her colleague Dr. Daniel Ignacio and saw how the ministers in he Church of Christ preached the Bible, she quickly spotted the big difference.
"It was totally different" she said.''The minister presents questions about a certain subject and the answers come from the Bible. He never gives his own opinion."
A former professor at the Medical School of Zulia University in Maracaibo, Venezuela, she migrated to the USA in 1987 to pursue her career as a medical practitioner. It was in the Locale of Temple Hills, Maryland where she and her late husband were baptized in 1989.
Sister Elvia now lives in Temple Hills with her children, who have likewise become members of the Church. When asked what impact becoming a member in the Church of Christ as had in her life, she replied, "In my home, there is peace. We live in peace. We live in love."
ELVIA GARCIA, M.D.
Venezuelan
XXXXXXXX
'No other Church'
Talking about what he likes about the worship services of the Church of Christ, Brother Low Meng Soon said,''The services and all are conducted very orderly. There's no rushing in or rushing out."
The first time he attended the worship service, he also noticed that the minister would always refer to what is written in the Bible. And so, Brother Low Meng Soon did more than just listen. "I did read up the Bible" he said, "and I found that what the Iglesia ni Cristo [Church of Christ] is doing is exactly what is in the Bible, and nothing else."
Confident that the Church he has joined is the one founded by the Lord Jesus Christ, he asserted, "There's no other church where I want to belong."
LOW MENG SOON Singaporean
XXXXXXXXXXXXX
'More than I ever thought possible'
Much has changed in Sister Melanie's personal and family life since she joined the Church of Christ in 2000 in Fresno, California.
"God has given me more than I ever thought possible" she said. "I feel that He is mending my character, my marriage, and my relationships."
She no longer feels "disconnected and alone" as she did at one point in her life in the past "For almost 50 years, I have searched for a meaning to my life" she said.''Now I have found it."

Despite her claim to apostolicity, the Catholic Church is very much different from the true Church of Christ or primitive Christianity. This, even Catholic writers admit:

"We Catholics acknowledge readily, without any shame, nay with pride, that Catholicism cannot be identified simply and wholly with primitive Christianity, nor even with the Gospel of Christ, in the same way that the great oak cannot be identified with the tiny acorn."

Reference:(Karl Adam. The Spirit Of Catholicism, p.2)

Never in an instance did the appointed apostles taught the early Christian Church that they should practice the rituals of the pagans:

"Here then is my word to you, and I urge it on you in the Lord's name: give up living as pagans do with their futile notions." [Eph. 4:17, Revised English Bible]

"Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, "Do not go beyond what is written'. Then you will not take pride in one man over against another." [1 Cor. 4:6, New International Version]

The Catholic Church has often borrowed from pagan rites and ceremonies. This is a violation of the Apostolic teaching that forbids Christians from living as the pagans do and from going beyond what is written in the Holy Scriptures.

Both Catholicism and Protestantism violate biblical tenets prohibiting the incorporation of teaching coming from pagans!!!

These cults must be rejected by sticking to the pristine biblical teachings of the true Christian Church, the Iglesia Ni Cristo!!!

Those who assume to the papacy of the Roman Catholic Church arrogate unto themselves the title of being the spiritual Father!!! In the Catholic book entitled, The Faith of Our Fathers, which was written by James Cardinal Gibbons, on page 113, this is what can be read:

"The popes were not only devoted spiritual Fathers, but firm and valiant civil Governors."

What these popes were doing were stealing or usurping the office or function of God for He alone possess that kind of title!!! In Matthew 23:9 is our Lord Jesus Christ's pronouncement:

"Do not call anyone on earth your father; for one is your Father, He who is heaven." [Ibid.]

It is forebidden that anyone on earth be called by the Fatherhood of God who is in heaven. There is only one Father who is in heaven, and it is not proper to call anyone on earth by that Fatherhood. What kind of Father is God according to the Apostles? In Hebrews 12:9, this is what can be read:

"In the case of our human fathers, they punished us and we respected them. How much more, then, should we submit to our spiritual Father and live!" (TEV)

There are two kinds of fathers: one is the human father, the other is the spiritual Father. Who are the men who have themselves called spiritual Fathers? The Popes of the false religion known as the Roman Catholic Church as admitted by their own authorities!!!

Get out from the false religion of Roman Catholicism and Protestantism!!! Declare their ecumenism as a falsity and an attempt to perpetrate and perpetuate the lies of the centuries!!!

HELL IS COMING!!!!!!!!!!
Hell Is Coming,

Reject the planetary, galactic, and star readings of the scams known as Roman Catholic and Protestant astrologers!!! Only the true God knows as to when He is going to effect Judgment Day!!! Christ and the angels do not know as to when it is to come and how much more for the astrologers and pseudo-preachers of the said false religions:

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." (Matt. 24:36, NIV)

A good look into the future is to follow this: "Joining the true Church is necessary".

The Lord Jesus Christ admonishes us to seek first the kingdom of God above all. This is necessary for man's salvation. Says the Lord Jesus:

"But strive first for the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." [Mt. 6:33, Ibid.]

During this time of extreme hardship when a great number of people suffer from poverty, many spend most of their time working for a living, earning to provide for the needs of their families. This has been their top priority. But the Lord Jesus admonishes everyone to seek first the kingdom of God, and the rest of his needs--clothing, food, and shelter will be added to him. The kingdom referred to is the kingdom of God's beloved Son wherein redemption and the forgiveness of sins is found [Col. 1:13-14]--the Church of Christ which was redeemed by Christ's shed blood [Acts 20:28, Lamsa Translation].

Therefore, we should not ignore the importance of entering the Church of Christ. Joining the Church of Christ is not a burden. It is the only way for us to be saved.

While the penalty for sin is death [Rom. 6:23], the second death in the lake of fire [Rev. 21:8], how can man attain salvation? The Holy Scriptures says:

"How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to worship the living God!

"Indeed, under the law almost verything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins." {Heb. 9:14, 22, NRSV]

The Bible teaches that the Church of Christ is the one redeemed through the blood of Christ. Hence, membership in the Church of Christ cannot be avoided by anyone seeking salvation.

Since God is giving us the chance, we must strive to enter in the Lord Jesus Christ by becoming members of His body, the Church of Christ.

Brenda Vanessa,

The Iglesia Ni Cristo is powerful and influential and history negates what you have been falsely imputing against the Iglesia Ni Cristo and Brother Felix Y.Manalo!!! A lot of good things have been said and written about the Iglesia Ni Cristo over the years. Indeed, the Church's successes have made quite an impression to people of other faiths from the past to the present. What follows is just one of what they said that the true Church of Christ is 'Strong and well-managed':

"Why is it that everytime we get to talking about a strong and well-managed, disciplined and powerful church, we invariably point to the Iglesia Ni Cristo?

"We would even heave a sigh and wonder what makes the INC so influential. What makes its members so committed and disciplined that they attend services twice a week without fail?"

Reference:

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

Members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo are impeccable in their discipline for they attend services twice a week!!! Thus, the Central Administration is leaving no coral unturned in providing the needs of those who converted to the true Church by purchasing, renovating, and constructing for them grandiose and beautiful houses of worship!!! And these recently dedicated houses of worship in the United States are as follows:

What I will tell the public is about the new building costing $8 million dollars which was recently purchased by the Iglesia Ni Cristo and which will serve as the United States Main Office (USMO) of the Church!!!

The acquisition of a new and bigger building is one of the palpable proofs of the rapid growth and expansion of the Church of Christ [Iglesia Ni Cristo]. From its former headquarters in Daly City, California, the transfer to a more strategic location in the city of Bulingame [a few miles from the San Francisco International Airport and accessible from major freeways] underscores the Church's desire to all the more intensify its work of propagating the gospel and catering to the spiritual needs of its members in that part of the world!!!

Get out from the false religion of Roman Catholicism and Protestantism!!! Declare their ecumenism as a falsity and an attempt to perpetrate and perpetuate the lies of the centuries!!!

Of crosses and saints

by Pasugo Mailbox on Friday, July 6, 2012 at 11:09am ·

I HAVE HAD many religious discussions with various Church Of Christ members through whom I learned that you do not subscribe to having crosses and pictures or statues of saints in religious activities like praying and worshiping... What others fail to understand are the sound doctrines we Catholics uphold beyond these images. Cross, for instance, represents Christ and images signify the saints. So the more vital questions should be: Should you not believe in the saints when the Bible clearly teaches about them? Don't you believe in and pray to Jesus Christ?...

Editor's reply:

Thank you for writing us.

Indeed, the Iglesia Ni Cristo does not and will never use crosses and graven images in our religious activities like praying and worshiping. To do so is a blatant offense against the one true God, Who is spirit, without flesh and bones (John 4:24; Luke 24:39). God declared:

"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God ..." (Exod. 20:4-5, King James Version).

God's prohibition concerning this continues up to our time, the Christian Era:

“Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone—an image made by human design and skill”(Acts 17:29, New International Version)

Nowhere in the Bible can we find any servant of God who has used the image of the cross to worship or pray to Christ. The cross was an instrument of execution—a fact that is supported even by Catholic authorities who stated that:

Like the guillotine, the noose, or the electric chair", the cross "was the instrument for the execution of worst criminals" and thus "was the symbol of shame, ignorance and dishonor" (Discourses on the Apostles' Creed, p. 16).

The Almighty God, through the apostles, commands that every knee should bow at the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Phil. 2:9-11)—not before the instrument used by His executioners who crucified Him to death.Concerning saints, the Iglesia Ni Cristo explicitly believes in them—though not in the same way Catholics do, but as the Bible teaches about them. Caholic authorities define "saint" as "a title properly given to those human members ... recognized by the [Catholic] Church, either traditionally or by formal canonization, as being in heaven" and act as "intercessors with God for the living and for souls in purgatory" (New Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. 12, pp. 852, 962). Small wonder, then, that Catholics pray to their so-called saints.

The Holy Scriptures, however, differently define "saints" as "those who are sanctified in Christ Jesus" (I Cor. 1:2, New King James Version). Those who were sanctified, redeemed or purchased by Christ's blood are inside the Church Of Christ (Acts 20:28, Lamsa Translation). All faithful members of the true Church, therefore, are referred to as saints by the Bible.The Catholic definition of saints as "intercessors with God" to whom one can pray is unchristian and unbiblical. Simple and clear is the teaching of the Bible that there is just one intercessor or mediator:

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

The Bible also disproves that the holy who have died are already in heaven. Except for Christ, all who have died lie in the grave (Ps. 88:4-5). These include the holy—they do not ascend to heaven right after their death (Acts 2:29, 34; Ps. 86:2) but will remain lying in their graves until Judgment Day (Job 14:10-12; II Pet. 3:10, 7). Apparently, others have failed to understand these sound doctrines enunciated by the Holy Scriptures.
