The Pasugo Vs. Pasugo of Iglesia ni Cristong Tao ni Manalo 1914 ( continuation)

44. Who can understand the Bible (Word of God)?

INC said only the inspired messengers are the ones exclusively given the understanding.

Pasugo, October 1995, page 4
Without being given understanding or revelation, one can never come to know the truth. This compels us to ask further, “Who, then, is given understanding of God’s words and, therefore, can preach them?”

The Lord Himself, further clarified:

“For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure.” (jn 3:34Ibid.)

Those sent by God–His inspired messengers–are the ones exclusively given the understanding of His words: they speak God’s words. On the contrary, those who are not send cannot preach the true gospel. They cannot lead man to the true understanding of God’s words and eventually, to salvation.

Apostle Paul wrote:

“And how shal they preach unless they are sent?…” (Rom 10:15, Ibid)

Only those sent by God can preach His words for to them has been revealed His mystery.

The Bible says otherwise.

They examined the Scriptures every day and God called them noble.

Acts 17:11 “Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.

2 Timothy 2:15 “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

The reason why INC ni Manalo teachings are not of the Bible:

Matthew 22:29 – Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.”

The Sadducees were in error because they did not know the Scriptures. But Jesus did not blame the Scriptures. He blamed the people. They could and should have studied enough to know the truth.”. INC ni Manalo implements their man-made doctrine that only inspired messengers can understand the Bible and not ordinary members nor other people. They are not urging members to bring bibles in their worship services and instead, discouraging them.

45. Ang hindi Sugo, pinagkaitang makaunawa nga mga salita ng Dios.

PASUGO Hunyo 1962, p. 35:”Ang mga sugo ay kusang pinagkalooban ng Dios na makaunawa ng mga salita ng Dios. Ang mga hindi sugo ay kusang pinagkaitan naman na makaunawa nga mga salita ng Dios.”

Salungat sa nakasulat sa Biblia.

*Examining the Scriptures daily are more noble-minded. How can they examine if they don’t understand as what INC ni Manalo claims to be?

Acts 17:11 “Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.

Si Manalo daw ang sugo nila sa huling panahon.

Natatakot ba sila na kapag nalaman at naniwala ang mga miyembro na maiintindihan naman pala nila ang Biblia kung bubuksan nila ang kanilang puso sa tunay na aral ng Dios, ay usisain yung mga maling aral at mga pag-pilipit nila sa Salita ng Dios?

46. Sabi ng INC, Nalipol daw ang tunay na iglesia hanggang 1914

PASUGO Enero 1964, p. 2
“Sa isang paksang mababasa sa nakaraang labas ng Pasugo (Disyembre) ay ipinaliliwanag kung saan naroon ang Iglesyang itinayo ni Cristo noong unang siglo sa Jerusalem. Ito ay natalikod. …Kaya walang natirang tupa si Cristo sa unang siglo, NALIPOL NA LAHAT”

PASUGO May 2009 [Volume 61, No. 5]
[Mula sa tulang Pagsusugo, 1st paragraph, May 2009 Pasugo, p. 23]

“Sangguniin ang mga banal na kalooban,
Saliksikin ang sakdal na kautusan –
Ilahad sa madla ang tapat at tunay
Na mga salita ng Diyos na buhay.
Ngayon, masusumpungan itong tamang daan
Na dapat lakaran sa kapayapaan;
Tanging kaaliwan at gawing sandigan
Ang sagradong tipan, ito’y walang hanggan.”

Bible:

Matthew 16:18
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”

~“Kahit ang kapangyarihan ng Impierno ay hindi mananaig” [ Mt 16:18-19] sa Iglesia Niya.

Ayon sa lathala ng INC: “Ngayon, masumpungan itong tamang daan”. – Nawala ba ang tamang daan? Hindi naman yan nagtago o nawala. Si Cristo ay hindi nawala (Siya ang Daan, ang TAMANG DAAN).

Sabi pa nila; “walang hanggan daw ang sagradong tipan” – Tapos sasabihin nilang nalipol ang mga mananampalataya at walang natira?

Bible:
“Tandaan ninyo Ako’y kasama ninyong LAGI hanggang sa katapusan ng daigdig.” [Mateo 28:20].

47. Pag-ankin ni Felix Manalo na dapat para lamang kay Kristo.

PASUGO Disyembre 1956, p. 17: (patula)

“ANG KAPANGANAKAN NG SINUGO
At sa huling kaarawang nalalapit na ngang ganap;
Ang dakilang paghuhukom ng Dios sa taong lahat;
Sa pagibig ni Bathalang ang tao ay maligtas;
Sa hula ay pinabangon ang Sugo sa Pilipinas;
Siya ay si Kapatid Felix Manalo ang tawag;
Si Elias na paririto bago dumating ang wakas.”

PASUGO Hunyo 1967, p. 11 (patula)

“Alaala natin ngayon ang kanyang kaarawan
Isang sangol na lalaki sa atin ay ibinigay;
Ang araw ay ika-sampu ang buwan ay Mayo naman;
Nang kumita ng liwanag ang sinugong ating mahal;
Sa dahon ng kasaysayan ay hindi na mapipigtal;
Ang kanyang kasaysayang punung-puno ng tagumpay.”

Ayon sa Bibliya:

Si Cristo ang sinugo ng Dios
Juan 4:9,16: “At nahayag ang pag-ibig ng Dios sa atin, sapagkat sinugo ng Dios ang kanyang bugtong na Anak sa sanlibutan upang tayo’y mabuhay sa pamamagitan niya, at ating makilala at sampalayatanan “ang pag-ibig ng Dios sa atin…”

48. According to INC ni Manalo, Can we Enter Christ?

Yes we can:

Pasugo, July 1998 Page 2
.. the Church of Christ is necessary for salvation, far from being a selfish claim, is a biblical truth.

The Lord Jesus Christ Himself declared:
“I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved.” (Jn 10:9 NKJV)

Man, therefore, must enter Christ to be saved. Those who have entered in Him find themselves in the fold or flock which is the Church of Christ.

No we can’t.

Pasugo September 1974 Page 3
That is the command of Christ Jesus our savior. What does He require to be saved? He says, “by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved.” He who wants to be saved must do something — he must enter in, “by me,” says Christ. There is, therefore, something which a man must find himself in. Could it be Jesus in Whom a man must enter? We would at once say, No. Why? Because it would be an attempt at doing the impossible. Why? Because Christ is in Heaven. And even if Christ were on earth, it would be impossible for a man to enter Him, much less the countless number of people who want to be saved.

49. Unreachable Christ?

Because Christ is in Heaven:

Pasugo September 1974 Page 3
That is the command of Christ Jesus our savior. What does He require to be saved? He says, “by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved.” He who wants to be saved must do something — he must enter in, “by me,” says Christ. There is, therefore, something which a man must find himself in. Could it be Jesus in Whom a man must enter? We would at once say, No. Why? Because it would be an attempt at doing the impossible. Why? Because Christ is in Heaven. And even if Christ were on earth, it would be impossible for a man to enter Him, much less the countless number of people who want to be saved.

Bible says Christ is omnipresent:

Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”

Revelation 3:20 ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me.

Matthew 28:20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

John 14:20 “In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you”

John 14:23 “Jesus answered him, “If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him”

50. Good Works Can Save? or not?

Good works will save people in the Church

Pasugo, December 1969 page 11
To those who have already been blessed with the call of God into the Church of Christ or Iglesia ni Cristo, we remind you of God’s admonition well documented in the Scripture: “The saying is sure, I desire you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God maybe careful to apply themselves to good deeds; these are excellent and profitable to men.” Continue with the good deeds we have began as Iglesia ni Cristo members, and we will profit by them. The profit that we will accrue unto us is eternal life, as the Apostle Paul points out: “So that we might be justtified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life. (Titus 3:8, 7) That is the inestimable value of the Iglesia ni Cristo. It is in this Church where your works, even your sacrifices will surely usher you into eternal life.

People will be saved not because of good deeds

Pasugo, September/October 1986 page 21
Salvation depends on hearing God’s words from the true preacher commisioned by God.
Cornelius like so many people today who embraced the true Church will be saved not because of the good deeds he had done, but through God’s merciful act of commisioning messengers entrusted with words of reconciliation.

*Not only contradicting, but lifting up their church & preachers instead of Christ..

51. Kanino daw Iglesia?

Iglesia ni Manalo

FREE PRESS
February 11, 1950

When we expressed shock at such censorable language, Manalo said:
“Why, who is Quirino? He is a man just the same as I am. I am not afraid of him. SHow fear to no man-that is the best way to defend your rights. Members of my church were beaten up. some killed because they refused to vote for Quirino.

Ano daw kahulugan ng “MY” sa salitang “My Church”?

Pasugo, January 1974 Page 8
… My Church.” Note His words “My Church.” “MY” is a possessive pronoun that denotes possession and ownership.

Conflict ito sa pangalan ng kanilang iglesia.

52. Eraño Manalo, “father figure”, INC members call him TATAY (FATHER)

Inquirer Headlines / Nation
Title: Iglesia ni Cristo leader Eraño Manalo dies
By Arlyn dela Cruz
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 03:07:00 09/02/2009

Father figure
Ka Erdy was not just a church leader but also a “father figure” to millions of INC members who lovingly call him “Tatay,” who like a father only wanted the best for his children.
He had stressed the constant unity and preservation of the family living and guided by the teachings of God.

Even members of Ka Erdy’s family are like brothers and sisters to many members of the church. The family members consoled some members who were given the opportunity to view Ka Erdy’s remains ahead of the public viewing at Templo Central.

The Bible says;

Matthew 23:9 “And do not call anyone on earth father, for you have one Father, and he is in heaven”

Ito ding talatang ito ang binabasa nila patungkol sa pagtawag na “Father” sa mga paring Katoliko.

53. Felix Manalo: Matitinag O Di Matitinag?

Hindi Daw Matitinag

PASUGO, Oct. 1965
“Ang inyong kapatid kay Kristo na hindi matitinag sa pananatili sa Dios at sa paglilingkod. Felix Manalo”

Matitinag naman din pala.

PASUGO, Oct. 1965
“Sa kasalukuyan ang Kapatid na Prudencio Vasquez ang namamahala sa Iglesia. Ito ang gusto ng Japon. Tayo’y sumunod.” Huwag kayong mabalisa sapagka’t sila ang may kapangyarihan sa ating bayan. …

*Sa iisang lathala, nagkontrahan ang mga pahayag. Natinag at Ipinaubaya sa iba ang pamamahala sa kanyang iglesia dahil sa takot sa Japon!
