According to Minister Manalo, me.
The words of God are written only in the Bible. The Bible should be the only basis of service to God. This is the truth which will teach man salvation from punishment on Judgment Day.
The Father who created all things is the only true God. There is no Trinity, three persons in one God.
The belief that all churches belong to God is false. Christ founded only one true Church - the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo).
The Church of Christ is the Church that Jesus will save (Acts 20:28 Lamsa) because he made this Church His body and heads it Himself - before God, the Church and Christ are one new man (Eph.2:15 NKJV; Col.1:18 NKJV). This is the reason why Christ is able to answer for the sins of His Church without violating God's law that whoever commits a sin, the same must die for that sin (Dt.24:16). Hence, the belief that salvation can be attained by means of faith in Christ alone, even without membership in the Church of Christ is false. The Church is necessary, not because it saves, but because it is the entity that Christ will save (Eph.5:23 TEV).
The Church built by Christ during the 1st century has apostatized (Acts 20:29). It was led away by false prophets which arose in the Church after the time of the Apostles (Mt.24:11 RSV), and those who remained firm in the faith were slain by ravenous wolves (Mt.7:15). The prophesied false teachers who led the Church away were the Catholic priests. They introduced false teachings (1 Tim.4:1,3) into the Church, until the Church became the Catholic Church - a church essentially different from the Church of Christ as described in the Bible.

The apostasy of the Catholic Church from the Church established by Christ in the 1st century took place with their turning away from the teachings of God taught by Christ and His Apostles (Worship of Images, Mass, Popes and Priests as vicars or successors of Christ, Mediator Saints, Purgatory). Therefore, the apostasy takes place whenever there is a teaching of God the Catholic Church violates. In view of this, all the doctrines and practices of the Catholic Church should be rejected.
We should not be surprised at the number of churches today that are not of Christ. It is not Christ who established them but the enemy or the devil (Mt.13:24-30,36-39 NKJV). These churches that do not belong to Christ are the Catholic Church and her offspring, the various Protestant denominations and sects. Only one Church belongs to Christ, the Church of Christ.
Many Protestant groups uphold the belief that faith alone in Christ is sufficient for salvation. They have excluded other conditions such as baptism (Mt.16:15-16), church membership (Jn.10:9,Acts 2:47, 20:28 Lamsa), suffering for Christ's sake (Phil.1:29), works (Js.2:14,17,20), preaching by the messenger of God (Acts 16:32-33), remaining in the true church (Jn.15:5-6), holding firm and obeying the Gospel (1 Cor.15:1-2 NIV) and enduring and remaining until the end (Mt.24:13). Their faith-alone concept of salvation is in direct conflict with the Bible where we can find pronouncements that man is not justified by faith only (Js.2:24).
One should not deny the necessity of one organized church as the Church of Christ.
The Church of Christ which emerged in the Philippines in these last days was established by virtue of the fulfillment of the prophecies of God (Isa.43:5 Moffatt) and of Christ (Jn.10:16;Acts 20:28 Lamsa). This is the third group (Acts 2:39) of people in the Church established by Christ. Even the spread of this Church in the Far West (Isa.43:4-6;59:19 NKJV) is a fulfillment of God's prophecy written in the Bible.
The messenger of God (Rom.10:15 NKJV) in these last days (Isa.43:6) is Brother Felix Y. Manalo (Rev.7:2-3). It was not he who built the Church of Christ but it was Christ Himself (Mt.16:18) by virtue of the fulfillment of the prophecy (Jn.10:16). Felix Manalo was only utilized by God as His instrument to preach the pure Gospel of salvation in these last days. His authority as God's messenger is clearly stated by various prophecies in Scriptures (Is.41:9-10; Is.46:11-13; Rev.7:2-3). Hence, it behooves man to have faith in the commissioning of Brother Felix Y. Manalo.
Persecutions cannot be avoided because overcoming it serves as the basis for inheriting the kingdom of heaven (Mt.5:10-12). Thus, whatever kind or extent of persecution a member of the Church of Christ may face, he should not falter or withdraw. He should instead pray to God for assistance in order to overcome religious persecutions.
The proper way of joining the Church of Christ is that which is done because of faith (Rom.5:2) in God and in Christ (Jn.14:1-2), as well as the recognition and acceptance of the Church and of God's commissioning of His messenger in these last days (Jn.6:29). If the motive for joining the Church of Christ is pure and proper, the man who joins the Church would be able to perform all the commandments and Church disciplines, the performance of which proves that he is a true member of the Church of Christ. He does not easily discouraged and neither does he drew back. Instead, he remains firm in his election.

Christ should be highly honored and worshiped by members of the Church of Christ because this is the will of God (Phil.2:9-11). Christ should be recognized as the Son of God (Mt.3:7), Lord (Acts 2:36), Saviour (Acts 5:31), Mediator (1Tim.2:5), a holy man who did not commit sin (1 Pet.2:21-22). The attributes mentioned here give no indication to His nature which we believe is of a man (Jn.8:40); He is not the true God.(Ezek.28:2) Man should also renounce the belief that Christ is true God and true man (Hos.11:9)
The clear distinctions of Christ from God are proofs that the true God is not Christ. Jesus possesses attributes surpassing the ordinary man, but this does not mean that he is God. God has attributes which we do not find in Christ. If Christ can do wonders such as miracles, all these are done by God, through Him as God's instrument. On his own powers alone, Christ cannot do anything. Christ Himself states, "I can of my own do nothing."
Teachers of the "Christ is God" doctrine also use the Bible. But we should not allow ourselves to be deceived by them because we cannot read any text in the Bible where Christ says He is the true God. If that is the case, why do they have biblical texts to prove their contentions? Those biblical texts have been given erroneous interpretations (Jn.1:1,14; Isa.9:6) or wrong meanings (1 Jn.5:20) or even based on verses wrongly translated (Rom.9:5).
It is not enough for man to join or become a member of the Church of Christ to be saved. He should lead a new life, too. Members who lead a new life are truly of Christ and of God. Thus, all sinful ways should be renounced and he should live by the teachings he has received.
Each member of the Church of Christ believes that constant attendance in worship services is one of his obligations. Great blessings accrue to those who constantly attend worship services while great sins are committed by those who disregard this responsibility.
The Church of Christ believes that it is God who gave the command to contribute and give thanksgiving offerings to support the needs of the Church. To fulfill these obligations is to lay up a good foundation for the attainment of eternal life.
The Church of Christ believes that it is the will of God for us to love one another as true brothers and sisters. Hence, if anyone has sinned against us, we should forgive him and we should reconcile with those who are mad at us.
The members of the Church of Christ believe that it is God who forbids the eating of blood and prohibits marriage with those of other faiths. Elopement is an act of disrespect for parents and this is a sin in the eyes of God.
The Church of Christ believes that baptism is necessary for one to become a disciple of Christ and for the attainment of eternal salvation. But this should be done in accordance with the teachings of the Bible.
The Church of Christ believes that each member should do missionary work or share his faith with others. Each one should learn how to pray to God so that he would not weaken in faith and thus be able to resist temptations.
Each member should submit to the Administration placed by God in the Church by means of total agreement with the teachings and rules observed in the Church of Christ.
The Church of Christ believes that unity is God's teaching and that division within the Church is an evil thing. This unity is implemented by the Church of Christ not only during election time but also in all its works in the service of God.
The Church of Christ believes that God has determined the Day of Judgment which will take place at the second coming of Christ. This is the great day when the Church of Christ will receive the reward promised by God—the everlasting home for God's chosen people.

The church also believes that we are in the last days and the world will end. Also that any other church is evil and people are doomed to destruction. The only people who will survive the last days are members of the church I copied.

Basically we are the militant Jehovah's witnesses. I just stole everything from them and mormons and then returned to the Philippines so I could get rich and have sex with all the 16 year old girls I wanted. But it was chicks! only chicks! Not all INC are gay!! The founders were strictly into raping women thank you.

1 Ex Kiwi,
Yes, his first two posts are correct!!! But the third is already a distortion!!! It is already a mixture of half truths!!! The Iglesia ni Cristo does not celebrate Christmas!!! December 25 is not celebrated as the birth of Christ by our religion!!! For that is the feast of the pagan god Sol Invictus!!! There is no record that Christ was born on that day and we don't engage in falsities!!!
The Passover is the means by which we celebrate the birth of Christ!!! It is the daily renewing of our lives by sticking to God's commandments!!!
We do celebrate birthdays in accordance with biblical tenets!!! We consider birthdays as the time to thank God for giving us life and all His support as we struggle from day to day existence!!!
It is the Jehovah's Witnesses who do not observe birthdays but not the Iglesia Ni Cristo!!! Their reason was because John the Baptist's head was severed because of the celebration of a birthday!!! But when you examine fully the bible, the heavenly hosts were singing praises to God when Christ was born!!! So, birthdays are times for giving praises to the Most High and it should not be avoided but observed by giving praises to the Supreme Creator who added us daily to the body of His Son, Jesus Christ!!!

We do not celebrate Christmas for we believe that December 25 is not the exact birth date of Jesus Christ!!! It is but the celebration of a pagan god, Sol Invictus!!!
Birthdays are however celebrated in the Church of Christ [Iglesia Ni Cristo]!!! Stop lying and distorting the pristine biblical teachings of the true Church of Christ which He purchased with His own blood [Acts 20:28]!!!

Yes, the true Church of Christ is the right religion in these last days and those who are outside of it will be judged by God!!! Why??? Because they are the goats!!! The true worshippers which are the members of the Church of Christ will be separated from the goats on Judgment Day!!! The goats will stay on Christ's left and are destined for the everalsting fire while the members of the Church of Christ will stay on the right to enjoy the promised Holy City, the New Jerusalem!!!

And always remember For opposing the Administration of the Church is tantamount to opposing not only Christ but also God" (Pasugo, Jan 1976, p. 190).

Follow the commandments in your daily life or face damnation apostate.

Anyone inclined to spend a few minutes for a laugh at Rizalino's expense can Google the scandals which plagued Felix Ysagun (Manalo). Yes, he committed adultery on his pregnant wife. Yes, he raped a teen in his ministry and was caught. Yes, he was accused of multiple rapes upon returning to the Philippines only to have his thugs threaten those who publicized his crimes.

Beyond the need for INC cult leaders to employ multiple Bibles to justify their deceipt begs a huge problem they cannot dismiss. Felix claims that he was told by God to be his messenger. Yet, Felix, knowing that God had told him what to do, chose to embrace not one but multiple faiths - even becoming a minister in one! He ignored the directive of God yet claims to be God's messenger. Hmmmm. His God must be confused more than INC cultists. LOL!

Enjoy the dinuguan, Rizalino.
