John 1:14 - “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

John 5:18 - “For this cause therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God.”

John 8:24 - “I said therefore to you, that you shall die in your sins; for unless you believe that I am He, you shall die in your sins.”  (Note: In the Greek, “He” is not there.)

John 8:58 - “Jesus said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am.’”

Exodus 3:14 - “And God said to Moses, ‘I AM WHO I AM’; and He said, Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

John 10:30-33 - “I and the Father are one.” 31The Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” 33The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.”

John 20:28 - “Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

Col. 2:9 - “For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form.”

Phil. 2:5-8 - “Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, 11and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Heb. 1:8 - “But of the Son He says, “Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever, and the righteous scepter is the scepter of His kingdom.”

Psalm 45:6 – “Thy throne, O God, is forever and ever; a scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Thy kingdom.”

Jesus is worshipped – Jesus said to worship God only, yet He receives worship.

Matt. 4:10 - “Then Jesus said to him, ‘Begone, Satan! For it is written, “You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.”‘”

Matt. 2:2 - “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east, and have come to worship Him.”

Matt. 2:11 - “And they came into the house and saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell down and worshiped Him; and opening their treasures they presented to Him gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.”

Matt. 14:33 - “And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, “You are certainly God’s Son!”

Matt. 28:9 - “And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.”

John 9:35-38 - “Jesus heard that they had put him out; and finding him, He said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?” 36He answered and said, “And who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” 37Jesus said to him, “You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you.” 38 And he said, “Lord, I believe.” And he worshiped Him.”

Heb. 1:6 - “And when He again brings the first-born into the world, He says, ‘And let all the angels of God worship Him.’”

Jesus is prayed to

Acts 7:55-60 - “But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God; 56 and he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened up and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” 57But they cried out with a loud voice, and covered their ears, and they rushed upon him with one impulse. 58And when they had driven him out of the city, they began stoning him, and the witnesses laid aside their robes at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59And they went on stoning Stephen as he called upon the Lord and said, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” 60And falling on his knees, he cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” And having said this, he fell asleep.”

1 Cor. 1:1-2 - “Paul, called as an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, to the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours.” (The phrase, “to call upon the name of the Lord” is a phrase used to designate prayer.)

1 Kings 18:24 - “Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of the Lord, and the God who answers by fire, He is God.” And all the people answered and said, “That is a good idea.”

Zech. 13:9 - “And I will bring the third part through the fire, refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are My people,’ and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”

Rom. 10:13-14 - “for ‘whoever will call upon the name of the Lord’ will be saved.” 14 How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard?” (Paul is speaking of calling upon Jesus. (The phrase “Call upon the name of the Lord” is a quote from Joel 2:32).

Joel 2:32 - “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.” (LORD here is YHWH, the name of God as revealed in Exodus 3:14. Therefore, this quote, dealing with God Himself is attributed to Jesus.)

Isaiah 44:6 - “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, and there is no God besides Me.”

Rev. 1:17 - “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.”

BIBLE SAYS:

Baptism
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”
Gospel of John 3:5
Confirmation
“Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John, who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit; for it had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.”
Acts of the Apostles 8:14-17
The Eucharist
“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever;and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh. The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is food indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so he who eats me will live because of me. This is the bread which came down from heaven, not such as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.”
Gospel of John 6:51-58
Confession
“Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father who sent me, even so I send you.  And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them,”Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven.  If you retain the sins of any, they are retained. “
Gospel of John 20:21-23
Holy Matrimony
He answered, “Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female,  and said, `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?  So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Gospel of Matthew 19:4-6
Holy Orders
“for I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said, “This is my body which is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 
1 Corinthians 11:23-25 
Anointing of the Sick
“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the presbyters of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”

YOU WILL BE DOOMED ONCE YOU ARE NOT A MEMBER OF IGLESIA NI CRISTO. IS THIS TRUE?

Another deception Iglesia ni Kristo planted to its flocks, is that once you are a member of Iglesia ni Kristo kay Manalo, you are automatically saved from the fire of hell.

IT’S CHRISTMAS DAY! Should we celebrate?

It is true that celebrating the Christmas Day is not biblical. Christmas, however, is a form of celebration being created by men to celebrate the birth of Christ.  There’s nothing wrong with it. It is just like assigning a special day (holiday) for us to commemorate  famous people such us Jose Rizal, the Philippines National Hero. Not to mention the celebration of New Year’s Eve, even our own “birthday’ are not in the bible, right?

If Iglesia Ni Kristo (Church of Church), claims that they are “purely bible based” (?) religion, so why they have to celebrate their anniversary or IGLESIA NI KRISTO DAY? And, why these members of Manalo’s flock were participating the celebration of New Years’ Eve? And why they also celebrating their birthdays?

And, how could they explain these pictures?

You can see the SPECK on your friends eye. BUT YOU DON’T NOTICE the log in your OWN EYE” (Matthew 7:2 CEV)

IGLESIA NI CRISTO GUILT OF IDOLATRY

Bible says:

Colossians 3:5 Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, IMPURITY, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is IDOLATRY.

HERE ARE THE PROOFS that indeed, IGLESIA NI KRISTO are GUILTY OF IDOLATRY


“SEXUAL IMMORALITY”

IMPURITY

passion

evil desire

covetousness

ARE CATHOLICS GUILTY OF IDOLATRY?

IGLESIA NI KRISTO continuously accused the Catholic Church of Idolatry, because of the various images of saints displayed on the Catholic Churches.

As the bible says in Exodus 20:3-6You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

But are the Catholic’s statues of Saints can be categorized as an Idols?  According to Webster Dictionary, the word “IDOL” means an “image used as an object of worship.”

The main idea there is OBJECT OF WORSHIP.

Exactly. Catholics DO NOT worship the images of saints curved out of wood or stone.

WHAT THE CATHOLICS VENERATES ARE NOT THE CARVED WOOD OR STONE ITSELF, BUT  THE MEMORY OF THE SAINTS OR HOLY ONE BEING REPRESENTED BY THAT STATUE.

Now, if IGLESIA NI KRISTO insist that merely  possessing a statue of saints is A FORM OF IDOLATRY, how COULD THEY explain the bronze statue of Felix Y. Manalo, ENSHRINED in their Central Office in Quezon City?
