THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO FOUNDED BY FELIX Y. MANALO, THE FILIPINO ANGEL WITHOUT WINGS
Q: What are the oneness deceptions of the Iglesia ni Cristo?
A: They are oneness of body, spirit, hope, Lord, faith, and God, as specified in Eph. 4:4-6:
"There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." (Eph.4:4-6 NKJV)
Felix Y. Manalo has been teaching that the Iglesia ni Cristo is a true church based on its alleged conformance with the oneness prescribed in the Ephesian verses. Looking with a magnifying glass, however, what the Iglesia preaches is different from what it practices. Let's look at each of these:
Manalo teaches the one body specified in the verse is the Church of Christ or Iglesia ni Cristo. This is a lie. The one body according to the teaching of Apostle Paul is no other than Jesus Christ's flesh and bones body. Let's read the verse:
"For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones." (Eph.5:30 NKJV)
Manalo is a liar who lives on deceptions. The true one body is not his Iglesia ni Cristo cult, but, Jesus Christ's own body of flesh and bones.
Manalo teaches that the Iglesia ni Cristo has one Spirit. This is a lie. How can the Iglesia ni Cristo has one Spirit when it uses many versions and translations of Bibles whose authors have conflicting spirits of translations? The following are examples of Manalo's Bible versions and the specific verses in which they are used:
1. Acts 20:28 (Manalo uses only Lamsa Translation);
2. Col. 3:15 (Manalo uses the Revised Standard V.);
3. Eph.2:15 (Manalo uses only the New King James V.);
4. Isaiah 43:5-6 (Manalo uses both Moffatt and NKJV. Moffatt for the word, "Far East," and NKJV for the "west" word);
5. Eph.5:23 (Manalo uses the Today's English V.);
6. John 10:9 (Manalo uses the Revised English Bible)
7. Col.1:25 (Manalo uses the Rotherham Emphasized Bible);
8. Heb.10:25-27 (Manalo uses the New King James V.)
In Manalo's Iglesia ni Cristo, for every verse, there is a required Bible Version or Translation to be used.
Manalo has to use different versions in order to easily pervert the Scriptures. This is evidence enough that the Iglesia ni Cristo is of the devil because a true church needs only one Bible version or translation.
Other than practising many spirits in the use of the Bible, what else is another evidence that the Iglesia ni Cristo has different spirit from that which was taught by the Apostles?
"By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God." (1 Jn.4:2-3 NKJV)
Bear in mind that those who are of God confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, meaning, Jesus Christ is not originally human, but when He came to earth, he came as a human. Since the Iglesia ni Cristo categorically fights that Jesus Christ is a man, absolutely and never was he at one time a God, Manalo's cult is therefore not of God. The Iglesia ni Cristo has a different spirit, an evil spirit.
Manalo's demagoguery of Rev. 7:1-3
Manalo teaches that Rev. 7:1-3 is the prophesy portion of his third group. Question is, why would the third, if any, would violate God's Bible presentation? It has always been the presentation of naming first the Jews as the first group, then comes the Gentiles as the second group. If there is a third group such as Manalo's Church of Christ group, it should be presented right after the Gentiles, is it not?
Here are the proofs:
"even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?" (Rom.9:24 NKJV)
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jews first and also for the Greek." (Rom. 1:16 NKJV)
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." (Gal. 3:28 NKJV)
Take note that Jews precede the Gentiles always in the presentation. If there will be third group, it should be found right after the Gentiles.
According to the above three verses, there are only two races that have the promise of salvation namely: Jews and Gentiles (or Greek). The Gentile race covers all other races other than Jews. There is no third group that we can see being included. This means that the Iglesia ni Cristo group is unauthorized, meaning, it was not planted by Christ. Who do you think planted this bad seed tares third group of Manalo? It is planted by the devil! The Iglesia ni Cristo cult is of the devil!
