How TRUE is this??? [Sipi mula sa Facebook: Exposing the Iglesia Ni Cristo Cult of Manalo]
The situation with the family of Brother Eraño G. Manalo continues to escalate. A lot has happened since the last entry was posted. The brethren that chose to stay around and help the family are not only harassed and persecuted but are now expelled. Many have lost their homes.
During a very recent video ministerial conference, Brother Eduardo admitted that he doesn't like to get angry and because of this, he delegates people to do it for him. This statement is disturbing especially coming from a religious leader and it confirms that he is allowing these ministers to launch various attacks against Ka Tenny and her children. As we are all witnessing, the results of his decision are detrimental to the lives of his own mother and siblings. He has given authority to a group of high ranking ministers to do as they please to deal with his mother and siblings.
For over three years now, there have been cars and motorcycles that are instructed to follow and harass the family wherever they go. The drivers of the vehicles are becoming more aggressive as to provoke the families into accidents. There are District Ministers that are using their political influence and are now coordinating with outside organizations to follow the family of Brother Eraño G. Manalo in an unfriendly malicious way. This is a serious and very real threat to their lives, and the very people who they would turn to, to help them are the very people behind these events. So they earnestly plead for help from our Almighty God as there is no one else they can turn to. That is why they have no choice but to call on the brethren for help. With the people in the administration having influence politically, they are taking advantage of the teaching that brethren cannot sue brethren. They feel they have the right to do anything they please like for example: stalking, intimidation and harassment. This is abuse of power. God did not put them in their duties to abuse their powers to persecute brethren. He put them there to lead His people to righteousness. This does not mean they have the right to do anything they so desire. We are all under the law of God.
Even brethren that express concern and prayers are now being threatened with expulsion. Who are behind these threats and decisions? Who are the people who benefit most from this schism that is continuously being instigated? There is a group of people that are causing this division and doing everything in their power to make sure the family stay divided. This is not the spirit of Christ.
Are there doubts looming in your minds to the authenticity of these blog postings? Some are saying they want to wait for an “official circular” to confirm or deny these postings. If there is an official response regarding this matter, it will be a sanitized biased response that only defends and reflects the administration in power. They will only tell you their side of the story and of course it will conveniently be in their favor.
It is true, that God did place them to administer the Church, but that does not mean they have the right to violate any rights of the members. It does not mean they have the authority to do anything they want. They should be the first to follow the commandments of God, not abuse their authority.
Please reflect on these words. Ask yourself if all their actions are biblical. Not only the hostile acts against Brother EGM’s family, but the many changes that we are all witnessing in the Church. Are the changes really for God’s glory? Please think hard. We became members of this Church because all our doctrines and beliefs had very clear and concise explanations. Everything was spoken for with transparency. Where is that transparency now?
Brethren, the administration has strayed from God’s teachings. It is becoming undeniably more evident as the days pass. An administration that condones violence is not under the guidance of God. Our almighty God is not a God of division and confusion. Our Almighty God is a God of unity and love. Where did all of that go? Why does the corruption in the Church continue to worsen as more questions are left unanswered? Why are innocent people’s lives being threatened? We should not condone this kind of behavior.
We cannot turn our heads the other way and deny the wrong being done. If we do, we will be held responsible to God for knowing what is right and supporting an administration who continues in their evil ways.
They need your help. You must not allow this kind of abuse to continue:
