In a series of unprecedented ridiculous Guinness World Records and other superficial money-induced achievements of the One-With-EVM Church, its Church Administration, Council Ministers, and District Ministers, have now all begun to drink the deadly OWEE Kool-Aid
(http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=drink%20the%20kool-aid). So one by one, they start to tell the lie that everybody has been telling…until EVERYBODY believes it to be TRUE and when I say everybody, I am ofcourse referring to the brethren who are either blindly One With EVM or just plainly, in denial. But what these people fail to grasp is the fact that the TRUTH will always be the TRUTH no matter how much you cover it up with lies.
And when S**t hits the fan… this is what it looks like.
This is now what the Iglesia Ni Cristo holy gathering (Pamamahayag ng Salita ng Diyos) has been reduced to.. CULTISH THEATRICS! Sooner or later they will be no different from the faith healers and body-shaking, epileptic-seizure-ridden, body-collapsing stage shows, that we see on TV. Why? Because the OWEE Ministers have to outdo themselves every time they “stage” a milestone achievement to bedazzle the unsuspecting brethren who are still hoping that the Church Administration is still inspired by the Holy Spirit. Since this Church Administration is no longer guided by God, the only thing they can do is to “simulate” or “fabricate” the HSE (Holy Spirit Effect). Unfortunately for them, those who have been truly enlightened by the Holy Spirit during the pristine years of the church (FYM and EGM Years), know exactly the difference.
But wait, “It looks so convincing…”. Just look at him… wouldn’t you believe him and follow “suit”?
But how exactly did they stage this “miraculous transformation” of the so-called Orthodox Priest, John Ngalon Collado. According to the OWEE Ministers, it was because he was inspired by the preaching of Bro. Glicerio “Jun” Santos Jr., the dubiously notorious General Auditor of the INC. So they went on with the show, allowed this “fake” Orthodox Priest to step on “the holiest of the holy ground“, the TRIBUNA, a place designated for the holy function of delivering the divine words of God, and THEY BLATANTLY DESECRATED IT by allowing an impostor to enter and proclaim LIES for the crowd to swallow with cheer and applause. What used to be holy grounds for the church, is now a commonplace for crooks and liars. Do you even remember how we used to regard the TRIBUNA with so much respect and reverence that not just ANYONE can step foot on it? But I guess, with the One With EVM Era (OWEE), a lot of things, really do change, even the doctrines and church procedures and disregarding the sanctity and holiness of the church. And thanks to Bro. Glicerio “Jun” Santos Jr., the INC under the administration of Bro. Eduardo V. Manalo, has once again sunk to a whole new LOW, something worthy for a new Guinness World Records.
Unfortunately, as much as the brethren would like to believe in the “Jun Santos” Miracle, all false things must come to an end, in this case, A VERY HUMILIATING AND EMBARRASSING END.
This is the Official Statement of the Philippine Orthodox Church
OFFICIAL STATEMENT REGARDING MR. JOHN COLLADO
On September 25, 2016, during the Philippine sect “Iglesia Ni Cristo”’s event in Lagao Gymnasium, in General Santos City, they are boosting that infront of their 50, 000 members, a priest of the Orthodox Church in the person of JOHN NGALON COLLADO take off his priestly vestment and converted to their sect. The video, photos and statements were attached on their post on social media. To shed light on this, we would like to correct the false claim of the Iglesia ni Cristo sect as well as the crime commited by Mr. Collado by declaring the following FACTS:
1.) MR. JOHN COLLADO IS NOT (AND NEVER HAS BEEN) AN ORTHODOX PRIEST
2.) MR. JOHN COLLADO HAS NOT BEEN ORDAINED EVEN IN THE LOWEST RANK WHICH IS AN ORTHODOX READER
3.) MR. JOHN COLLADO IS A FORMER PRIEST OF THE PHILIPPINE INDEPENDENT CATHOLIC CHURCH (PICC) ALSO KNOWN AS AGLIPAYAN CHURCH WHO GO ON SCHISM FROM PICC TOGETHER WITH OTHER AGLIPAYAN PRIESTS AND CREATED THE INDEPENDENT CATHOLIC CHURCH OF MINDANAO (ICCM).
4.) MR. JOHN COLLADO TOGETHER WITH OTHER ICCM CLERGIES CONVERTED VOLUNTARILY THEMSELVES TO THE ORTHODOX CHURCH (MOSCOW PATRIARCHATE) AND WE KNOW HIM ONLY FOR 2 1/2 YEARS.
5.) HE FORFEITED HIS AGLIPAYAN PRIESTHOOD IN AUGUST 2015 AND WAS BAPTIZED AS AN ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN AND BECAME AN ORTHODOX LAYMAN.
6.) SINCE HE IS A NEW CONVERT, WHOSE EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND IS ONLY A HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE (WHICH IS ALLOWED IN AGLIPAYANISM FOR ORDINATION), AND HE NEVER ENTER INTO A PROPER SEMINARY EVEN IN HIS AGLIPAYAN TIMES, AND UPON CONSIDERATION OF THE NATURE OF HIS UNSTABLE CHARACTER, HE IS NOT EVEN AMONG OF THOSE CANDIDATES FOR ORTHODOX PRIESTHOOD.
7.) HIS STATEMENTS THAT HE NOW FORFEITS HIS ORTHODOX PRIESTHOOD ARE FRAUDULENT. HE IS MISLEADING THE PUBLIC BY LYING PUBLICLY AND HAS COMMITTED A CRIME OF MISREPRESENTATION AGAINST THE ORTHODOX CHURCH.
8.) THE VESTMENT WHICH HE IS WEARING AND TAKEN OFF AS SHOWN IN THE VIDEO IS NOT A VESTMENT OF AN ORTHODOX PRIEST BUT OF A CATHOLIC ONE AS COPIED BY THE AGLIPAYANS.
9.) THE RUSSIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH MISSION IN THE PHILIPPINES TO WHICH MR. COLLADO HAS BELONGED, IS ONLY MORE THAN TWO YEARS SINCE WE STARTED OUR MISSION AND WERE NOT ORDAINING YET NOT EVEN A SINGLE FILIPINO ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN TO ANY RANKS OF PRIESTHOOD AND HAVE NO PRIEST YET AS OF THIS TIME IN THE PHILIPPINES.
Having said the above facts, we reproach the leaders and members of the so called “Iglesia Ni Cristo” for spreading lies publicly WITHOUT verifying first the background of Mr. Collado. This only proves that this sect is IRRESPONSIBLE and NOT preaching the Truth as they even unable to do a background check to verify the claims of Mr. Collado, OR knowlingly facilitates the fradulent activity. We know the “Iglesia Ni Cristo” has a capacity to do verifications or background checks as they have members who work in many government agencies, yet they opt to just spread lies on their evangelism activities, a proof that their “evangelization” is accompanied with LIES.
We are calling all people of goodwill, including public media and government authorities not to be mislead by the lies propagated by Mr. Collado, and to refrain from further publicizing these lies.
To all Orthodox Christians, let us pray for Mr. Collado’s soul and for his repentance.
