Paraphrasing in English, the article above says: Rosita Trillanes, an expelled Iglesia NI Cristo member is accused of vindictive measures against Felix Manalo through a documentary testimony of being Manalo’s rape victim. The court convicted Rosita of libel after Felix retaliated with a court case. Rosita appealed and was acquitted. After 10 years, Rosita retracted from his accusation of rape and asked for forgiveness from Felix. She became a diakonesa after another 10 years and died as an INC member.
Now, let us look at the Tenny-Angel Manalo excommunication case. Why were they expelled from the church?
The news report say, Angel and Tenny were interfering in the church administration affairs through the you tube agenda of uploading anti-INC allegation of abduction and security threat to gain sympathy which logically, would jeopardize the church harmony or unity, thus the necessary remedy of expulsion. Thus they were expelled.
Looking at both cases: The Rosita Trillanes case vis-à-vis Angel-Tenny case, similarly both were either slanderer or blasphemers against the church administration. One by an allegedly false accusation of rape implicating the leader which naturally was a divisive force within the church. The latter in like manner–divisive liars. In essence, both have identical aspect of slander. Yet Rosita Trillaness was reinstated as a member after penance. The question is, would it be the same case for Angel and Tenny and all other expelled members having the same magnitude of offense? Would expelled members be reinstated provided they resort to sincere penance?
Logically, they would be so to be fair, in like manner, how a grave offense of a rape accusation by Rosita Trillanes was forgiven and the accuser Rosita Trillanes reinstated in the church.
Biblically, is it allowed for a validly convicted and expelled offender to be reinstated to the church?
Nope. There is no law allowing the reinstatement of validly expelled members. They would be placed under god’s judgment as it say:
1 Corinthians 5:12-13
For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
But is it not church obligation to snatch those destined to hell?
And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Yes. But obviously this is for those who were never Christians and never repented. Once you’re a christian, there is no more second repentance for mortal sins as it say:
2 Corinthians 7:10
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of…
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Therefore, snatching from the fire is applicable only to those that never had christian baptism, or in short, was never christian bec a true enlightened christian once he backslide with mortal sins can never be redeemed anymore and as the verse above implied, has no more acceptable second repentance. Therefore, snatching from the fire is inapplicable for expelled backsliders, bec there is no acceptable second repentance from mortal sins for backsliding Christians. You cannot snatch backsliders from the fire anymore as they cannot be redeemed anymore. Therefore snatching from the fire is applicable for non-baptized, and never-been-christian entities, logically speaking. Implying, Rosita Trillanes reinstatement to the church is an evangelical blunder. Why?
Bec there is no christian law allowing the reinstatement of a validly expelled members. And it is gross misconduct, to go beyond where the bible is silent. We do not do things beyond the limits of biblical sanctions. Where the bible is silent, there must not be any attempts of doctrinal addition as it say:
I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
But why does INC persisted on this doctrinal blunder–the reinstatement of validly expelled offenders–unmentioned in the bible?
