IGLESIA NI CRISTO: A BUSINESS INSTITUTION?

Remember the news report accusing Erano Manalo as the billionaire preacher and the church as his lucrative milking-cow business institution? Well, it might not actually be that way, who knows, but I’m writing this as honest as i possibly can to present factual reality and not a malicious fake news. I’m writing this as my research material how we could perceive INC in a more realistic and biblical way. Here goes…

Has INC any trace of being or at least manifesting some hints of having that anti-poor characteristic in terms of the church as platform for business agenda?

I’m talking about NEW ERA UNIVERSITY, a church run, institution meant as a conduit for glorifying god so as manalo claimed: (source: Click this! )

Let’s have an idea how this church run university works. Source: Click here!

TUITION FEES: (source: Click here! )

As clearly testified, NEW ERA UNIVERSITY, a church run institution is not a free-tuition university yet that as a form of charity for the poor as they seem to imply gives glory and honor to god. Here is more info:

How does it works for students? It say:



Therefore, it admits that it is not a university as a free-education giving privilege for its poor members in the church bec if church members are privileged for free education then it is biased for non-members as apparent discrimination which by its by-laws say, no discrimination on the grounds of religious belief, therefore, it embodies the principle of equality. Therefore, everyone must abide by its requirements, and that includes monetary fees. Therefore, this university was not intended as a charitable institution for its poor members as a compassionate way to alleviate them from poverty. It was obviously as intended for profit perhaps for the poor in Mindanao or the aetas or manobos housing project to the expense of neglecting its poor but mentally qualified members.

Wow! Could it be?

They sacrificed their poor members like how they sacrificed Angel Manalo in need of housing whereas they are apparently very merciful for the others faraway, providing housing projects free of charge so to make itself prestigious?

Could it be?

Manalo said, that set up is for the glory of god. A site said:



I don’t know if this testimony is true. Its for you to validate. Poor members have no privilege for free-education except perhaps in terms of scholarship program. But the mere fact that, there are high charges for those unqualified for scholarship, denigrates the church’s purpose of helping poor members, bec for the church to be as lifesaver, it should have begun by showing compassion for the needy. Noven Belleza, the tawag ng tanghalan champion, was deprived of help. He did it by himself. He was alleviated from poverty not through INC’s caring hands but by his talent. These poor members should have been the frontline recipient of humanitarian aid if so that INC have it. But does it?

Let’s see… This in regards to New Era University’s lack of empathy for the needy.

Firstly,


Secondly, this: the gauge in regards to who is the true church⬇

1 John 3:16-19

[16]Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

[17]But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

[18]My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

[19]And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.

The fact that NEW ERA UNIVERSITY is anti-poor wherein it shut its bowels of compassion for the needy brothers, proves that you lack the love of god in you, and you being, calloused heart, unsympathetic, and without compassion and empathy for your poor brethren while you’re well-off and pampered by their hard earned money, proves that you are gravely handicapped from the truth, thereby, making you a false church, that employed partiality among your members–education for the rich; no education for the poor! Pro-rich? Preference for the one with gold ring? Anti-poor? Feeding the poor, pay first before you learn, hypocrite?

1 Timothy 5:21

[21]I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

James 3:17

[17]But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Now, could the true church be an institution that employs money-making scheme as a business incorporation however the profit is for? Charity or evangelism?

Or

Everything, the church offer as a way for social or spiritual development is free, as how mcgi, as apparently a principle, do?

2 Corinthians 8:9-15

[14]But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want (i.e health, food, clothing, education etc…) that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:

[15]As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.

Maybe, you have a different interpretation of this but if taken at face value, this pauline principle is a christian ethics, therefore, as implied, the church is responsible for the necessary needs of poor members such that if they cannot provide, the church is a helping hand in terms of monetary support  that is for food, health even education!

Therefore, everything the church offers for development, social, educational, spiritual must be free for qualified needy members as much as there must not be any charge for any church service done for its members.

Let’s use logic. Firstly, the church preferred to be defrauded by its members to avoid being negative in the sight of unbelievers.

1 Corinthians 6:7

[7]Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

Secondly, the church lay down its life for a brother in need.

John 15:13

[13]Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 

Giving oneself for the needy, and preferring to be defrauded though in cases of lawsuits speaks of an integral preference for sacrifice. Is there sacrifice when the church as an institution, impose monetary fees for its service such as church run universities? 

Why would the church offer services that has monetary equivalent when in fact, a foregoing principle is, to offer services free of charge as it say,

3 John 1:7

[7]Because that for his name’s sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles.

The church don’t take anything from non-members as necessary fees for anything they offer such as evangelism, charity, housing or education as exemplified by Paul how that they refrain from collecting anything from gentiles in exchange for their services. 

How come? 

Bec the possibility of sheep outside yet the fold, the brothers of jesus who were needy in terms of income, food, clothing, necessities, hospital fees, etc…that must necessary the church’s obligation to care for and bec we do not know who are these brothers of Christ outside the church thus the necessity for free charge of all the humanitarian programs meant for the masses, so to cater for any possible brother of Christ in need.

Matthew 25:41-45

[41]Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 

[42]For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 

[43]I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 

[44]Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 

[45]Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 

These least of Christ brethren are the children of god including those outside who before becoming christian is already predestinated as children of god.

Romans 8:29-30

[30]Moreover whom he did predestinate (as children of god), them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Bec we dont know who are these other sheep outside the church, the children of god, as by predestination, the church must be impartial to all people, so as to be good to all, in terms of humanitarian efforts to help the needy, the sick, the poor and in all sector of humanitarian need as our obligation of doing these for christ. 

Galatians 6:10

[10]As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

You do charitable housing projects for the poor, free of charge. But your education program (NEW ERA UNIVERSITY) is of charge? What’s the difference between charitable housing project with the New Era education program? Are they not both for charity?

1 Corinthians 16:14

[14]Let all your things be done with charity.

The mere fact that New Era University lacks the christian principle of compassion for the needy and possible other children of god outside the church  and likewise exhibiting anti-poor characteristic even for members is vehemently a testimony of INC’s falsehood. Let me repost:

1 John 3:16-19

[16]Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

[17]But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

[18]My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

[19]And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.

This as Erano Manalo said, the New Era University’s apathy and discredit  of giving free education to its poor qualified members, is for the glory of god so as it seem,

By these, though limited, is sufficient proof to say, everything the church as an institution must offer as developmental project for the people in humanitarian terms, must be free of charge such as schools, hospital, etc…and that as principle is the abiding rule that pervades in our church, mcgi, as testament of our lifelong dedication of love, for god and man, the core aspect reminiscient of how the true church was and ever will be–

Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 

But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
➡ I will delete this post though if you could show that MCGI has anything of this sort, humanitarian programs, schools, hospital if any, transient house, buses etc…given with monetary charge. 

Lastly, I ask: is not Iglesia NI Cristo a business institution?

THE INC’s PICK-ONLY-SORIANO “ATAPANG DAHIL IGLESIA KAMI” LAWSUITS

As we all know, Iglesia ni Cristo, as an institution attacked its religious archrival, mcgi, through unprecedented 10+ libel court cases against our minister, bro eli soriano. 

I am just wondering. Is there consistency with this kind of treatment as necessary responses from allegedly offensive statements even from shallow, superficial invectives such as in the case of bro eli saying, a whore prostitutes through her organ while you prostitutes through your mouth being a verbally bad mouth, referring to a lame-minded minister? Though it was not a court case but a retaliatory action through MTRCB to halt eli’s TV program, it was still, in like manner how libel cases were made, that is bec of shallow and minor offenses. 

Was there consistency, that INC always resort to this kind of lame and diversionary religiosity suing apparently malicious attackers of their church, even pointlessly, towards overkill? If none, how come bro eli was abused with multiple senseless lawsuits? Was it bec they were trying to prevent him from totally demolishing their doctrinal integrity? Thus the need to make desperate measures in desperate times through prejudice?

Its overkill. Who else did INC sued in like manner, an overkill™?

If none, apparently, its a transparent and clear testament that reflects the seemingly implication: INC resort to prejudicial self-preservation. They cannot tackle doctrinal damage thus resorting to unfair damage control.

In short, its a testament of abuse and evasion from doctrinal issues.

Why do I say so?

They did not sue this one that lambasted their church, maliciously, more than the nature of bro Eli’s alleged offense. 

Let’s think for awhile folks! Only soriano was charged with 10+libel cases? But this one, who abused them beyond the scope of Eli’s alleged offense, was never sued?

Or if it was, let us know!

It say,

  • INC IS A MONEY MAKING BUSINESS INSTITUTION
  • ERANO MANALO IS THE GREEDY, “GANID, DAYUKDOK”, EXPLOIT-MONEY-MAKING-PROFITTER OF THE CHURCH

Now, tell us, if there was no premeditated plan to persecute and destroy or even kill bro eli soriano as he claimed, how would you justify the 10+libel cases he was distinct to endure while those that negatively highlighted erano manalo as exploiter and, profiteer scheming from a business institution with the guise of a religion was never been touched?

Now tell us, am I correct?

Were they charged or prosecuted? Or were they silenced?

Vindicate yourselves but does it matter?

If not, it would always be doubtful how come 10+libel cases, an overkill, was charged against eli soriano while a more serious offense was apparently bypassed?

Lastly, whoelse did you charged in like manner, an overkill?
