(With tagalog translation)

Sa Sinugdanan sa Lantugi, nagtuo ang mga Catholic Faith Defenders nga by team ang paagi sa lantugi. Apan human sa unang stand sa Division Minister sa Iglesia ni Cristo- Mateo Liwanag, mipasiatab nga sa ikaduhang barog siya lang gihapon ang mosulti ug pakamangon kuno niya ang lima ka sakop sa Catholic Faith Defenders Team. Tungod niini, nakahukom ang mga Catholic Faith Defenders nga dili nalang usab ilisan si Bro. Atty Marcelo Bacalso sanglit man usab ang speaker sa Catholic Faith Defenders aron dili makaingon ang mga tawo nga gitabangan ang Ministro sa INC. Laktud nga pagkasulti, si Bro. Atty Bacalso ug si Bro. Mateo Liwanag lamang ang mga speaker hangtud natapus ang lantugi.

 

(TAGALOG: Sa panimula sa debate, naniwala ang mga Catholic Faith Defenders na by team ang debate. Pero pagkatapos sa unang tindig ng Division Minister ng INC-Mateo Liwanag, nangungutyang nasabing s’ya parin ang titindig sa ikalawang tindigan (stand) at pagagapangin daw nya ang limang kasapi ng Catholic Faith Defenders Team. Dahil dito, naka-deklara ang mga Catholic Faith Defenders na hindi nalang nila papalitan si Bro. Atty. Bacalso sapagkat sya ang naunang speaker sa panig ng Catholic Faith Defenders team para hindi makapagsabi ang mga tao na pinagtulungan ang ministro ng Iglesia ni Cristo. Sa madaling salita, si Bro. Atty. Bacalso at si Bro. Mateo Liwanag lamang ang mga speaker hanggang sa matapos ang debate.)

 

Aron gayod sa paghatag ng katin-awan sa atong mga kaigso-onan nga wala makasaksi sa maong lantugi among gipanlimbasogan pagpatik dinhi ang resulta kon nahimong sangputanan pinaagi sa nahipos nga mga pahayag kun komentaryo sa pipila ka mag tawo nga dili Katoliko aron maoy mohukom sa walay pagdapig sa usag-usa:

 

(TAGALOG: Para mabigyan ng malinaw na impormasyon ang ating mga kapatid na hindi naka saksi sa naturang debate aming pinag tyagaan ang pagsulat ditto sa resulta sapamamagitan ng pagkuha ng pahayag at komentaryo sa mga kapatid nating hindi Katoliko para huhusga ng walang kinakampihan sa bawat isa:)

 

EULOGIO BUSCA (United Church of Christ in the Philippines) – Dipolog City

“Una ko kadtong higayon nga nakadungog ug naka saksi nga ang mga Katoliko nanalipod pinaagi sa usa ka Formal Public Debate dinhi sa tibuok Mindanao ug nakadayeg ako sa mga Catholic Faith Defenders. Sa maong lantugi gisaksihan sa tulo ngadto sa upat ka libo ka mga tawo nga nagkalain-lain ang tinuhoan, ako moingon sa walay lipod-lipod sanglit dili man ako Katoliko nga ang Division Minister sa Iglesia ni Cristo nga si Mateo Liwanag wala gayud makapabarug ni makapamatuod sa duha ka tema nga gilantugian human dugmoka sa Catholic Faith Defenders ang iyang tanang argumento pinaagi sa mga kasaligan nga referencia nga gigamit ni Atty. Marcelo Bacalso.”

“Sa laing bahin, nakadayig usab ako sa kabugnaw ug tinaw nga manubag ni Bro. Socrates Fernadez sa mga pangutana nga gipasupot sa mga Sabadista sa panahon sa ilang rally. Akong namatikdan usab nga wala nay laing Iglesia ni Cristo nga mibalik aron sa pagpakita sa mga Katoliko human watas-watasa ang ilang banggiitang debater nga si Mateo Liwanag.”

(TAGALOG: Una palang akong nakarinig at naka saksi na ang mga Katoliko ay nag dedepensa sa pamamagitan ng isang Formal Public Debate dito sa buong pulo ng Mindanao at ako ay humanga sa Catholic Faith Defenders. Sa naturang debate nasaksihan sa tatlo hanggang apat na libong taong may ibat-ibang relihiyon o pananampalataya; ako ay nagsasabi na walang pinapanigan sapagkat hindi ako Katoliko na ang Division Minister ng Iglesia ni Cristo na si Mateo Liwanag hindi naka tindig o naka patunay sa dalawang tema ng debate pagkatapos nailampaso (Totally destroyed) ng Catholic Faith Defender ang lahat ng mga argumento(ni Mateo Liwanag) sapapagitan ng mga mapagkakatiwalaang referencia na ginamit ni Atty. Marcelo Bacalso.”

“Sa ibang banda, humanga ako sa magandang at malinaw na pagsagot ni Brad. Socrates Fernandez sa mga tanong sa kanya ng mga Sabadista sa panahon sa kanilang (CFD) rally. Napansin ko din na wala ng Iglesia ni Cristo na bumalik para pagpakita sa mga Katoliko pagkatapos ilampaso ang kanilang pinakamagaling na debater nasi Mateo Liwanag.”)

      o ito po jenny para sa tanong nyo. kahit tingnan pa sa lahat ng dictionary ang pangalang katoiliko ay uneversal bakit? dahil ito ay galing sa greek word nas kata at holos na ang ibig sabihin ay ipinahayag sa at buo, thus, it means that it was proclaimed in the whole world at wala ito sa biblia dahil ayon kay juan hindi lahat ng ginawan ni kristo nong dito pa sya lupa ay nakasulat sa biblia at isa pa ang pangalang biblia mismo ay hindi mo makikita simula genisis hanggang revelation pero aang ibig sabihin parin nito ay universal kahit titingnan mo pa a dictionary.hence, partner na partner ang dalawa diba at bagay na bagay dahil parehong parehoj ang ibig sabihin “UNIVERSAL” THAT IS WHY the catholic church has written tradition(bibilia) at holy tradition(religion).

  6. catholicfaithdefender said

    Dear Jenny,

    Sa hindi pa natin sasagutin ang tanong mo ay dapat nating malaman na si Cristo lang ang nagtatag ng Kanyang iglisya (Mat. 16:18); itoy naitatag N’ya sa kanyang kapanahonan ( Mat. 18:17); itoy Kanyang katawan (Col.1:18); Sya ang manliligtas ng iglisya (Efe 5:23); ito’y itinayo nya sa saligan ng mga apostol (Efe 2:20); itoy sasamahan Nya hanggang sa katapusan ng sanlibutan (Mat. 28:20) at bibigyan Nya ito ng patnubay(Juan. 14:16-17) at ang patnubay, ang Espiritu Santo na magtuturo sa iglisya ng lahat ng bagay at magpapaalala ng lahat ng sinabi ni Cristo (Juan. 14:26)

    Ang tunay na iglisyang itinatag ni Cristo ay magpasahanggang sa ngayon ay narito pa at hindi ito kalian man tatalikod at mawawalang parang bula (Mat. 16:18) (Mat. 28:20) (Juan. 14:16-17,26)

    Sa kapanahunan natin ngayon may mahigit na sa 33000 kristianong denomenasyon (sekta); at lahat nag-aangkin na sila raw ang totoong iglisyang itinatag ni Cristo. Sa 33000 sekta isa lang ang tunay na iglisiang Itinatag ni Cristo. Ang tunay na iglesya:
    -Si Cristo ang nagtatag
    -Naitatag ni Cristo ang kanyang iglisya sa kanyang kapanahonan
    -Hindi ito madadaig ng Kamatayan
    -Sa mga panahon ng mga Apostol hanggang sa ngayon ay existed itong Kanyang iglesya
    -Ang iglisyang ito ay can trace back its origin to the apostles.

    Ang iglisyang that can trace back its origin to the apostles ay ang Roman Catholic Church (Pasugo Magazine –April 1965- page 41) (The World book Encyclopedia-1986 page 580) (The World Alamanac & Book of Facts-1966 page 501).

    Ang Pasugo pa mismo ang nag patunay na ang Roman Catholic Church ay ang isa at tanging makapagpabalik ng dugtong nito sa mga apostol. Narito ang kanilang pahayag “So we don’t question the claim of the Catholic Apologist, that the Catholic Church alone could trace back its origin to the apostles” - itoy inilathala ni Brod. C. P. Sandoval sa Pasugo Magazine –April 1965- page 41.

     SASAGUTIN PO NATIN PONTO-4-PUNTO ANG MGA TANONG MO

    Tanong #1: Mayroon bang nakasulat sa bible na Iglisya Katolika Apostolica Romana?

    Sagot po natin ay mayroon pong mababasa sa Biblia na Iglisya Katolika Apostolica Romana.

    Mababasa natin ang Iglesia (Church) (): Mat. 16:18 “18} And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it (KJV).
    Mababasa natin ang Katolika (Catholic) (): James 1:1 “Catholic Epistles of St. James the Apostles” (Douay Rheims Version).
    Mababasa natin ang Apostolica (Apostolic): Mat.10:39 “Apostolic discourse” (Jerusalem Bible); Act. 1:25 to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs (TNIV).
    Mababasa natin ang Romana (Roman): Rom. 1:1 “The Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Romans” (KJV)

    Kapatid na Jenny baka isipin mo na ang word na Catholic ay mababasa lamang sa Catholic Bible; narito po ang karagdagang ebedinsya sa na mababasa talaga ang word na Catholic sa Bible:

    Catholic or General Epistles (Introduction of the Greek New Testament –Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft- Page 48)
    Catholic Epistles- A term applied to the Epistles of James, Peter, John and Jude. It goes back to the early church father, but how it arose is unknown. The most commonly accepted explanation is that these epistles were addressed, not to individual churches or persons but to a number to the church at large, i.e., the universal church (NIV Compact Dictionary of the Bible, Page 108)

    Kapatid na Jenny kung gusto mo ay sa isang citas lang sa biblia natin babasahin ang na Iglisya Katolika Apostolica Romana; ang sagot parin natin ay MAYROON MABABASA at MAIINTINDIHAN.

    The Jerusalem Bible: ROMANS “The letter of Paul to the Church in Rome” Chapter 1, Verse 7-8 “ To you all, then, who are God’s beloved in Rome, called to be saints, may God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ send grace and peace. First I thank my God through Jesus spoken of all over the world.”
    The Greek New Testament: Roma 1:8 Πρῶτον μὲν εὐχαριστῶ τῷ θεῷ μου διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν ὅτι ἡ πίστις ὑμῶν καταγγέλλεται ἐν ὅλῳ τῷ κόσμῳ,
    Roma 1:8 ………………………he pistis humon KATAggelletai en holo to kosmo,
    Novum Testamentum Latine : Roma 1:7-8 7omnibus qui sunt Romae dilectis Dei vocatis sanctis gratia vobis et pax a Deo Patre nostro et Domino Iesu Christo 8primum quidem gratias ago Deo meo per Iesum Christum pro omnibus vobis quia fides vestra adnuntiatur in universo mundo.
     dito ating makikita na ang Iglisya sa Roma ang may maramin bunga at narinig ang pananampalataya nito sa buong (Universal or catholic) mundo. At mapapansin sa itaas na sa Roma 1:1,6-8 mababasa at maiintindihan natin na may nabangkit na Iglesia, Roma, Universa or Catholic (Paki tingnan sa ibaba ang masusing explanation) at itoy Apostolica dahil si San Pablo ang sumulat nito sa Roma, at si San Pablo ay Apostol.

    ἡ μὲν οὖν ἐκκλησία καθ’ ὅλης τῆς Ἰουδαίας καὶ Γαλιλαίας καὶ Σαμαρείας εἶχεν εἰρήνην οἰκοδομουμένη καὶ πορευομένη τῷ φόβῳ τοῦ κυρίου καὶ τῇ παρακλήσει τοῦ ἁγίου πνεύματος ἐπληθύνετο.
    Gawa 9:31 Mababasa natin sa Grego ang EKKLESIA KATHOLIS (- which correspond to Catholic Church.

    Liban sa Biblia ang KASAYSAYAN ay nag papatunay rin na ang Roman Catholic Church ay ang iglesyang itinatag ni Cristo-Jesus. Dapat malaman ng ating mga giliw na mga kapatid na mga non-catholic na ang HISTORY-is the study of the past particularly the written record of the human race, but more generally including SCIENTIFIC and ARCHAELOGICAL discoveries about the past. At ang Bible mismo ay isang HISTORICAL Books.

    More than 1900 years ago, Jesus Christ the Son of God, come upon earth to save mankind. After His atoning death on the cross He rose glorious and immortal. Before leaving this world to go to the Father, our Lord founded the Catholic Church and gave to that church the command to “teach all nations” (The Old World and America by Furlong-Page 100).
    Grollier Encyclopedia –volume V, page 106: “Catholic Church (Gr. Katholikos, universal, general). Term generally applied to the Divine society founded by Jesus Christ, and endowed by the outpouring of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost.”
    The New Webster’s Dictionary of the English Language (International Edition): Page 155: CATHOLIC- of the original Christian Church before the schism between East and West (ORTHODOXY)// of the Roman or western church after this schism and before the Reformation.
    Information Almanac 1988 –Page 724: Roman Catholics- Traditionally, by Jesus who named St. Peter the 1st vicar; historically in early Christian proselytizing and the conversion of imperial Rome in the 4th century.
    International Encyclopedia Volume 15,Page 520: Roman Catholic Church – there are two equally valid definitions of the Catholic Church comparable to the twofold nature of Jesus Christ its founder.
    At marami pang ibang mga Standard references na nag papatunay na si Cristo talaga ang founder ng Roman Catholic Church tulad ng:
    -World Almanac and Book of Facts –1986 Edition- Page 243-
    -New Book of Knowledge Encyclopedia –Volume 18, Page 287-
    -Young Student Encyclo.–Weekly Reader Book- Vol. 18, Page 2021/2121

    Nasagot po ang tanong #1

    #2: Patunayan nyong hindi bawal kumakain ng dugo

    Noon ang dugo ay ginagamit ng mga Israylita para sa alay dahil sa kanilang kasalanan kayat itoy ipinagbawal kainin (Leviticus 17:10-11 And whatsoever man [there be] of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.)

    Kahit na sa panahon ng mga apostolis ang dugo ay ipinagbawal dahil itoy kanilang napanunod sa relihiyong Judaismo ng Kanilang mga magulang (Act 15:29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.)

    Ngunit unti-unti’y namulat o nakita ng mga Apostolis na itong mga PAGKAIN ay walang kaugnayan hinggil sa Kaligtasan bagkus ang nabubuhay sa Grasya ng Dios; “sapagkat ang pag-pasok ng tao sa kaharian ng Diyos ay hindi nababatay sa kinakain at inumin kundi sa pagiging matuwid, pagkakasundo-sundo at kagalakan na pawing kaloob ng Espiritu Santo” (Roma 14:17 Tagalog Popular Version or TPV)

    Ipinagtibay ni San Pablo na huwag hamakin ang kumakain ng kahit lamang gulay, at huwag naming hatulan ng kumakain lamang ng gulay ang kumakain ng kahit ano, sapagkat siyay tinanggap ng Diyos. (Roma 14:3 TPV)

    Ang prinsipyo na ito ay sinimulan ng panginoon… “Kayo man baga’y wala ring pang-unawa? Tugon ni Jesus. Hindi ba ninyo alam na hindi nakapagpaparumi sa tao ang kinakain nya, sapagkat hindi naman pumapasok iyon sa kanayang puso, kundi sa tiyan at pagkatapos ay idudumi. (Sa pagkasabi nito’y para nang ipinahayag ni Jesus na maaring kanin ang lahat ng pagkain) Marcos 7:18-19

    Eze. 39:17-21(KJV) And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, [even] a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. } And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD. And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them.

    Leviticus 10:18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy [place:] ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy [place,] as I commanded.
    Dito malinaw kapatid na Jenny na ang dugo ay ipapakain.

    #3: Hindi bawal ang pagsamba ng dios-diosan?

    At tungkol naman sa mga dios-diosan, siguro ang ibig mong sabihin ay ang mga imahe ng mga santo. Ang mga mga imahe ng mga santo ay hindi dios-diosan sapagkat hindi sila kinikilalang Diyos ng mga Katoliko at hindi ito ang doctrina ng santa Iglesia Catolica na mga Dios ang mga ito.

    Kung may mga katolikong kumikilala na ang mga imahe ay Dios, sila ay nagkasala na tinatawag ng ADOLATRIA ayon narin sa batas ng Santa Iglesia Catolica.

    Ito ang tunay na turo ng Santa Iglesia Catolica hingil sa mga imahen:

    “We honor sacred images in order to show our veneration for the person the represent, not to adore them as gods.” (My Catholic Faith, Page 191)
    “We do not pray to the crucifix, to the images and relics of the saint but to the person they represent” (Catholic Catechism, Number 565)

    Hindi ba malinaw na ang aral ng Santa Iglesia Catolica na ang mga imahe ay hindi sinasamba bilang Diyos.

    At ano naman ang pahayag ng mga protestante tungkol sa pagsamba ng dios-diosan:
    Idolatry –the worship of false gods (NIV Compact Dictionary of the Bible, Page 266)

    At ano ang sabi ni San Pablo 1 Cor 8:4 “So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world”

    Siguro sasabihin ng mga ministro ni Manalo at nang ibang protestante na paggawa ng mga imahe ng mga santo ay pagsamba ng mg adios-diosan ay nagkakamali sila.
    At kung sasabihin rin ng mga ministro ni Manalo mali ang pag gawa ng mga imahe; ang sagot natin jan ay hindi lahat.

    Ang Diyos pa mismo ang nagpagawa ng mga imahe ng mga anghil Ex 25:18-22 “And thou shalt make two cherubims [of] gold, [of] beaten work shalt thou make them, in the two ends of the mercy seat. {25:19} And make one cherub on the one end, and the other cherub on the other end: [even] of the mercy seat shall ye make the cherubims on the two ends thereof. {25:20} And the cherubim shall stretch forth [their] wings on high, covering the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces [shall look] one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. {25:21} And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. {25:22} And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which [are] upon the ark of the testimony, of all [things] which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.

    At sa templo pa ng Diyos ipalalagay ang mga banal na imahe 2 Cron 3:1, 7, 10-13(KJV) “Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where [the LORD] appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite. {3:7} He overlaid also the house, the beams, the posts, and the walls thereof, and the doors thereof, with gold; and graved cherubims on the walls.10 And in the most holy house he made two cherubims of image work, and overlaid them with gold. {3:11} And the wings of the cherubims [were] twenty cubits long: one wing [of the one cherub was] five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing [was likewise] five cubits, reaching to the wing of the other cherub. {3:12} And [one] wing of the other cherub [was] five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing [was] five cubits [also,] joining to the wing of the other cherub. {3:13} The wings of these cherubims spread themselves forth twenty cubits:

    At ang utos ng Diyos na doon tayo sumamba sa kanya, sa lugar na pinili ng Diyos, ito ay ang kangyang templo na may imahe 2 Cron 7:15-16(KJV) Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer [that is made] in this place. {7:16} For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.

    Mailinaw na malinaw kapatid na ipinag utos ng Diyos na doon sumamba sa kanyang templo (structural) na may mga imahe (Ex 25:18-22) (2 Cron 3:1, 7, 10-13) (2 Cron 7:15-16)…….sumunod ba kayo rito?

    #4: Bawal na pag-aasawa ng mga pari?

    Ang aral ng Katoliko tungkol sa Celibacy o ang hindi pag-aasawa ng mga pari alang-alang sa Diyos ay nasa Biblia at turo ito ng Panginoong Jesus.

    Ang sabi ni apostol Pablo sa 1 Cor. 7:8, 32-33 (KJV) “{7:8} I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. {7:32} But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: {7:33} But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please [his] wife.

    At pakakatandaan natin na si Apostol San Pablo ay Pari-Roma 15:16 (Cebuano Popular Version)

    Ang Panginoong Jesu-Cristo ay ganito rin ang itinoro sa Mat. 19:12 (KJV) “For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from [their] mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive [it,] let him receive [it.”

    At pakakatandaan natin na ang Panginoon Jesu-Cristo ay Pari- Heb. 3:1 (Cebuano Popular Version.)

    #5: Hindi bawal ang fiesta?

    Ang Fiesta – ito po ay otos at toru na mababasa natin sa Biblia

    1 Cor 5:8 (KJV) “8} Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.

    Sa katunayan ay namimista ang Panginoong Jesu-Cristo taon-taon Luke 22:1, 78 (KJV) “{22:1} Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover. {22:2} And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people. {22:7} Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. {22:8} And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

    Ang Fiesta ng Santa Iglesia Catolica ay ang pagdiriwang at pag-alaala sa mga Santo, kay Santa Maria at mismo sa Dios.

    At hindi po totoong kami ay nang-uusig sa Iglesia ni Cristo ni Manalo bagkos ang mga ministro ang nang-uusig sa mga Paring katoliko.

    At kapatid kong tongkol naman sa debate ng Iglesia ni Cristo Team VS Catholic Faith Defensers Team, pawing puro makatutuhanan po ang mga isinulat naming.

    Kapatid na Jenny hindi po kami bulag, sa katunayan wala ho kaming kahit isang kosing na matatanggap sa mga Pari, gusto lang namin na maiparating ang tamang aral ng Santa Iglesia Catolica.

Unang-una alamin mo kung sa Relihiyon mo ba makikita ang tunay na kaligtasan?Alam mo ba kung bakit kailangan naming tuligsain? actually ang ginamit mong word na “Tuligsa” ay hindi angkop na salita para sa ginagawa namin, ang tamang katawagan doon ay pagtuwid,pag-agaw sa apoy o pag-aakay sa tamang daan, Kailangan naming ituwid kayo at dalhin sa tamang daan sapagkat isang napakalaking baluktot na daan ang inyong binabagtas…

  9. May tanong po ako..

    Sa isang aklat na isinulat ng PARI by ALBER HUNNI page.59

    ” The epistles has taken from the apocalips,a woman surrounded by the sons splender who is wearing a crown by the twelve star and the moon beniete her feet.Appears to saint john avoice announce that is hour salvation of the kingdom of jesus christ,The application to the IMMACULATE VIRGIN of LORDES is clear.

    So Maliwanag.. Na sabi ng PARI nio na TURO ng IGLESIA KATOLIKA na si VIRGIN MARRY ang BABAE sa Apocalipsis 12:1.”

    Anu nmn ang sinasabi ng catholic bible sa DOUAY RHIMES VERSION sa {FOOTNOTE} ng APOCALIPSIS 12:1 ganito ang sabi…

    A woman,this WOMAN is NOT the BLESSED VIRGIN!

    Ngayon alin po jan ang 22o? ang sabi ng pari sa aklat nio na virgin marry ang bab sa revlation 12:1

    o sa catholic bible ng douay rhimes version na hindi raw si virgin marry ang babae sa revation 12:!?

    pakisagot po..

  10. sayo Eulogio Busca ,ang masasabi ko lang dun sa naobserbahan mong devate between iglesia 1914 at cfd ay kasi yung dalawang nagdebate ay parehong wala sa totoo ..kaya walang linaw doon ..at hindi batayan yun na kung nanalo ang katoliko ay panalo na sila sa lahat ng sekta sa pakikipaglantugi pag na tyempuhan na nila ang tunay na iglesia sa debate tyak talo yan kasi ang mga nakakalaban nila kapwa nila bulaan din paki tanong mo si soc fernandez kung sino ang pentecostal missionary church of Christ (4th watch)na tumalo sa kanya sa public debate sa plaza sa cebu at kung gusto nya pang lumaban ulit sa amin.

    Comment:
    To Mr. Fernandez:

    when christ founded his church in matt 16:18, did Jesus intend His church would have an official name?

    ANSWER:
    Matt. 16:18 is refers to the true church of Christ and it is the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic…

    In my Bible (as of now); Matt. 16:18 does not contains an official name but it can be understood through logical reasoning with the help of the grace of God that it is the Catholic Church.

    We have the proofs that the church (in Mat. 16:18) is the Catholic Church; -these proofs are the following:

    1. It is Biblical
    2. It is Logical
    3. It is Historical

    Biblical –in the sense that the church founded by Jesus Christ (Matt. 16:18) is the Catholic Church (Act 9:31 Greek Bible)
    The Jerusalem Bible: ROMANS “The letter of Paul to the Church in Rome” Chapter 1, Verse 7-8 “ To you all, then, who are God’s beloved in Rome, called to be saints, may God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ send grace and peace. First I thank my God through Jesus spoken of all over the world.”
    The Greek New Testament: Roma 1:8 Πρῶτον μὲν εὐχαριστῶ τῷ θεῷ μου διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν ὅτι ἡ πίστις ὑμῶν καταγγέλλεται ἐν ὅλῳ τῷ κόσμῳ,
    Roma 1:8 ………………………he pistis humon KATAggelletai en holo to kosmo,
    Novum Testamentum Latine : Roma 1:7-8 7omnibus qui sunt Romae dilectis Dei vocatis sanctis gratia vobis et pax a Deo Patre nostro et Domino Iesu Christo 8primum quidem gratias ago Deo meo per Iesum Christum pro omnibus vobis quia fides vestra adnuntiatur in universo mundo.
    CATHOLIC-universal (Webster’s II New Riverside Pocket Dictionary, Page 45)
    CATHOLIC-members of the Universal or Catholic Church (Webster’s New School & Office Dictionary, Page 142)
    CATHOLIC-or Universal (Introduction to the Catholic Epistles of James, Douay Rheims Version)
    Luke 4:14 (Novum Testamentum Latine) -UNIVERSAM
    Luke 4 :14 (Novum Testamentum Graece) -kaq olhV (KATHOLIS)
    1 Cor. 14:23 (Novum Testamentum Latine) 23si ergo conveniat universa ecclesia in unum et omnes linguis loquantur intrent autem idiotae aut infideles nonne dicent quod insanities.
    1 Cor. 14:23 Universa ecclesia or Catholic Church.

    Logical- because Christ is not a liar (1 Pet. 2:22); Christ promise that He is always accompanying His church until the end of time (Matt. 28:19-20) and the power of death shall prevail against the Church (Matt. 16:18). Therefore it is very obvious that the true church from the time of Christ up to nowadays where present and will still exist until the end of time. If we are going to know what is the original church that was founded by Jesus Christ; the first thing should we bear in mind by asking our selves that “that this _____ church can trace its origin back in time of Christ?” Through this question we can easily select the true church out of 33000 Christian denominations – and this church is the Catholic Church. (“So we don’t question the claim of the Catholic Apologist, that the Catholic Church alone could trace back its origin to the apostles” –By Brod. C. P. Sandoval sa Pasugo Magazine –April 1965- page 41.)

    Historical- Many standard references such us Word History, Church History, Encyclopedia, World Almanac, Dictionary, and many reliable and factual references says that the Catholic Church is the True Church Founded by Jesus Christ.
    More than 1900 years ago, Jesus Christ the Son of God, come upon earth to save mankind. After His atoning death on the cross He rose glorious and immortal. Before leaving this world to go to the Father, our Lord founded the Catholic Church and gave to that church the command to “teach all nations” (The Old World and America by Furlong-Page 100).
    Grollier Encyclopedia –volume V, page 106: “Catholic Church (Gr. Katholikos, universal, general). Term generally applied to the Divine society founded by Jesus Christ, and endowed by the outpouring of the Holy Ghost on the day of Pentecost.”
    The New Webster’s Dictionary of the English Language (International Edition): Page 155: CATHOLIC- of the original Christian Church before the schism between East and West (ORTHODOXY)// of the Roman or western church after this schism and before the Reformation.
    Information Almanac 1988 –Page 724: Roman Catholics- Traditionally, by Jesus who named St. Peter the 1st vicar; historically in early Christian proselytizing and the conversion of imperial Rome in the 4th century.
    International Encyclopedia Volume 15,Page 520: Roman Catholic Church – there are two equally valid definitions of the Catholic Church comparable to the twofold nature of Jesus Christ its founder.
    At marami pang ibang mga Standard references na nag papatunay na si Cristo talaga ang founder ng Roman Catholic Church tulad ng:
    -World Almanac and Book of Facts –1986 Edition- Page 243-
    -New Book of Knowledge Encyclopedia –Volume 18, Page 287-
    -Young Student Encyclo.–Weekly Reader Book- Vol. 18, Page 2021/2121

    It is called Roman Catholic to signify that the said church (local church around the globe) is in communion with the see of the Bishop of Rome the successor of Saint Peter the first Bishop of Rome.

    Even though the name Roman Catholic Apostolic Church did not found in a single sentence in my Bible (as of now) but the name Catholic Church can be found in the Bible (in Greek it is EKKLESIA KATHOLIS) (in Cebuano it is “Simbahang Katoliko”).
    It is universal fact that when we said Catholic Church it is pertaining to the One, Holy, Apostolic, Catholic, and Roman Church.

    bro. pasiones. i asked you who founded the east assyrian church but you replied that they
    were result of the catholic church’s schism.you did not mention the name of the person
    who founded it. question: are you confirming bro. pasiones that you could not find a specific
    person who founded the east assyrian church?
    ———————————————————————————————
    TOPIC 2
    My REPLY

    I asked you whether or not christ intended that his church would have an official name when he founded it.(
    matthew 16;18.) you replied that althougH the noun phrase roman catholic apostolic church did not
    appear in the texts but it could be understood as the RCAC through logical, biblical and historical proofs.

    Don’t expand my original proposition. You’re just thinking way ahead; and the result you turned the topic
    into a chopsuy.

    my original and single proposition was: Resolve whether or not christ intended that his church will
    have an official name.

    If you want to prove that christ was the one who founded the catholic church, therefore it is the church jesus
    founded in matthew 16:18, and name is RCAC that’s another topic. and we can debate about it later.

    first you clarify your position on my first proposition. I will ask you again, did christ intend that
    when he founded his church in matt. 16:18, it will have an official name? If you say yes.Then we can
    proceed to my next proposition. What is the name? It’s obvious however, that you already laid down your
    arguments about my second proposition. but i won’t make a comment about it until you clarify your
    position to my original proposition.
    —————————————————————————————————-
    TOPIC 3: About the marks

    G Pasiones: The One, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic Church are the marks of the true church base on the Bible.
    Some protestant admit that One, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic Church are the marks of the true church (e.g. Seventh Day Adventist Church).
    It is called Roman Catholic to signify that the said church (local church around the globe) is in communion
    with the see of the Bishop of Rome the successor of Saint Peter the first Bishop of Rome.

    My Reply.

    You said the one, holy, apostolic, catholic church are the true marks based on the bible.

    Based on the bible also, the words: jesus, church, jerusalem, god are also there. why did
    you pick the words holy, apostolic, catholic as the true marks over the words: jesus, church, jerusalem, god
    since the words i selected can also be found in the bible?

    if you noticed, i only used your nitpicking scheme to form the phrasal mark: jesus god jerusalem church
    to test the validity of your scheme. Unfortunately, you just rehashed your argument by saying
    it’s the true marks because they are in the bible. the words i picked are also in the bible. So, if you based
    the validity of the marks because they are in the bible, then you will be forced to accept mine as well
    because they are in the bible too.

    another thing, you said the some protestants attested that the words roman, catholic, apostolic church (RCAC)
    are the true marks. So what if they said that? are you suggesting their admission is a proof of
    the correctness of the marks? Protestants said that RCAC doctrines run contrary to the bible, do you
    believe them too because they made such pronouncement?

    As of now I am not aware of the Orthodox Church. It is true that I could not find a specific person who founded the east assyrian church (as of now). But the church says about them:
    SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL –Orientalium Ecclesiarum (Eastern Churches)- Number 25. “If any separated Eastern Churches should under be the guidance of grace of the Holy Spirit, join himself to the Catholic unity, no more should be required of him than what a simple profession of the Catholic faith demands. A valid priesthood is preserved among Eastern clerics. Hence, upon joining themselves to the unity of the Catholic Church, Eastern clerics are permitted to exercise the orders they possess, in accordance with the regulations established by the competent authority.

    MY REPLY:

    I had been answered already that “Matt. 16:18 does not contains an official name but it can be understood through logical reasoning with the help of the grace of God that it is the Catholic Church.” Therefore in Matt. 16:18 Christ did not intend that the church would have an official name because there was only one Christian church at that time when Christ build His church. As a matter of fact from the time of Christ to the 11th century all Christians were members of one church- the Catholic Church.

    The church had marks that we could recognize its genuine identity among other churches (also claiming that they are the true church founded by Christ). These marks are: ONE, HOLY, APOSTOLIC and CATHOLIC.

    In the time of reformation many protestant churches claim that they are the true church founded by Christ. As the result of reformation Christians were divided because there were many churches in almost part of Europe. As the time goes on, the true church must have its official name so that it can be recognized by all people in whole world specially those people that were not aware or recognize Christianity as separate institution with respect to the protestant churches.

    As Christ gives the authority in His disciples the power in administrating the universal church (Mat. 18:18), they exercise this power to give the name of the church “ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC, CHURCH”

    TOPIC 3
    MY REPLY:

    I pick the words one, holy, apostolic, catholic as marks of the true church because:

    -ONE-
    The true church is one and united because the church founded by Christ was only ONE church (Matt. 16:18), and the members of this church were united (“And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd. {10:17} Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.” John 10:16 KJV) ([There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; {4:5} One Lord, one faith, one baptism, {4:6} One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephe. 4:4-5) (“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” John 17:21). Unlike many (majority) protestant churches (fundamental and Evangelicals) they are many (contrary to ONE church) and not united in there governance, doctrines, dogma, etc (contrary to the Universal church).

    -HOLY-
    The true church is holy because its founder Christ is Holy (Luke 1:35, Act. 4:27, 30). “Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” (1 Pet. 1:16 KJV). 1 Cor. 14:33 “For God is not [the author] of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” Some protestant sects were founded by unholy man contrary to the founder of Catholic Church.

    -APOSTOLIC-
    The true church is apostolic because it started (begin) in the apostolic era (“And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone; ]” Efe. 2:20 KJV). And this church still exist nowadays (Matt. 16:18, Matt 28:20). Protestantism was begun in 17th century; therefore all protestant churches are not an apostolic church.

    -CATHOLIC-
    The true church is catholic because Christ wanted that His gospel would be preached in whole world (Matt. 28-19-20) and he (Christ) taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? (Mark 11:17).

    My contention is not only picking a word that can be found in the Bible but also in logical way of reasoning “that the characteristic of the true church founded by Jesus Christ are ONE, HOLY CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC.” I am also using other standard references (encyclopedia, history, etc.) and protestant articles that support my contention.

    These characteristics (ONE, HOLY CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC) of the church are serving as measuring tools to test (compare) all churches that claim to be the true church founded by Christ. If the church (tested church) have all the characteristics of the true church founded by Christ then it is the TRUE CHURCH!

    The protestant attest also that the marks of the true church are ONE, HOLY CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC- this is an evidence of my arguments since they are protestant sects that are independent to the Catholic Church and oppose some of the teaching of the Catholic Church. As the rules of argumentation and debate, it is a valid proof of my contention because there articles (references) are not self serving to the Catholic Church; and it can be countered by the opponent by showing another proof (contrary to the affirmative) serves as a counter proposition.

    I am not suggesting that their admission is a proof (entire evidence) of the correctness of the marks of the true church but it can help (even in a small percentage) to advance my stand of the said topic.

    I am not believed in the protestant teaching when it is contrary to the Catholic Church teaching because the Catholic Church is the pillar and ground of the truth.
    If protestant says that the Catholic Church teaches a doctrine contrary to the Bible, we Catholic Faith Defenders are always ready to combat (debate, dialogue) their (protestant) heresies and false teaching.

    it appears to me that only one man has been doing for the
    work in this website. I wonder if the CFD organization
    has been given support by their beloved church.
    The pattern of the answers look like it came from one source.
    To the defenders of the Catholic faith, did you really believe that your overlords give importance
    to apologetics? Why is it that the underlings are in the frontline during
    debates with pastors and ministers of other religions, who are so fanatical like you.
    Let me guess, the Catholic hierarchy likes to outsource their jobs because they
    have a fetish for call centers.It would be better if the Catholic bishops hire call center agents since they are better equip and well placed in offices over the ragtag, ill-equip and
    antiquated CFD offices if there are any. Or the priests and bishops in this country don’t really have the nuts-and-bolts in their brain when it comes to apologetics.

    Catholic leaders appear seem don’t value your organization very much because your group is usless to their favorite bread-and-butter, politics. Another explanation is that the Catholic hierarchy is so busy in dividing the funds given by PACGOR. Piece of advice to CFD, why don’t you kick the butts of your lazy superiors and tell them to do their primordial job rather than hide in covents where they are competing each other in a largest-bilbil contest.

      nagseselos ka lng cguro dhil may nagbibigay ng gifts.
      Sa inyo kasi pinipilit nyong mga members nyo na mgbigay khit wla ng datung…bka nag cacaroling pa nga cguro kayo eh pra may funds…at pki check na rin sa pastor nyo kung ano ginagawa niya jan..bka he didnt practice what he preached…

    I have a brief exchange through blogs with mr talibong in the catholic faith defender ozamiz chapter. You can see that in the right upper portion of this page. Now, he said that his onfraternity was a 1969 or 1968 edition. Although, Parba’s was also holding a confraternity edition, but they differ in editions.
    so, all you have to do is look for a 1969 or 1968 edition, then
    see for yourself if there is indeed a phrase roman catholic apostolic church” if you can’t find one, ask mr talibong through

    pakisagot po..

    Dear Bro. Jason,

    Salamat sa comento mo sa amin, naway ang Dios ay gagabay sa iyo at sa iyong pamilya sa mga pag-araw araw na Gawain.

    Sa hindi pa natin sagutin ang tanong mo, dapat malaman natin kung ano ang Book of Revelation o Apocalypse. Narito ang mga sumusunod na pahayag hinggil sa Book of Revelation:

    NIV Compact Dictionary of the Bible (The Zondervan Corporation-OMF Literature Phil. Page 504-505 (emphasis added) -REVELATION, BOOK OF THE (Gr. Apokalypsis, an unveiling). Sometimes called the Apocalypse. This is the last book of the Bible and the only book of NT that is exclusively prophetic in character.
    There are four main schools of interpretation:
    1. Pretest- holds that Revelation is simply a picture of conditions prevalent in the Roman Empire in the late first century, cast in the form of vision and prophecy to conceal its meaning from hostile pagan.
    2. Historical view contends that the book represents in symbolic form the entire course of church history from the time of writing to the final consummation, and that the mystical figures describe in it can be identified with human events in history.
    3. Futurist- on the basis of the threefold division given in Revelation 1:19, suggests that “what you have seen” refers to the immediate environment of the seer and vision of Christ (1”9-19), “what is now” denotes the churches of Asia or the church age they symbolize (2:1-3:22), and “what will take later” relates to those events that will attend the return of Christ and the establishment of the city of God.
    4. Idealist or Symbolic school treats Revelation as purely a dramatic picture of the conflict of good and evil.

    The New Jerome Bible Handbook, Page 310. The Apocalypse (Revelation) narrates extraordinary visions that concern things normally unseen and unheard by human beings. It is unique in the New Testament, but not the ancient world… The Revelation has two focuses: Secrets of the cosmos and secret of the future. Secrets are revealed in order to present a particular interpretation of the times and to persuade the hearers or readers to think and live in a certain way.

    Sa nasambit natin sa itaas, mapapansin natin na ang Revelation ay may maraming interpretations batay na rin sa bumabasa.

    Atin pong talakayin ang Revelation Chapter 12 na basihan sa iyong katanungan.

    Kay ALBER HUNNI is Santa Maria ang Rev. 12:1; sa DOUAY RHIMES VERSION (St. Joseph Edition) hindi si Santa Maria ang Revelation 12. Makikita po natin na para pong contradict ang statement ng dalawa (o masasabi ng iba na contrary talaga ang dalawa). Peru bakit po sinabi natin na parang contradict ang dalawa? Narito ang kasagutan:

    Dapat nating malaman na ang Revelation 12:1 ay isang fusion imagery o ang topiko ng Revelation ay may maraming kahulugan at nakadependi ito sa History, Phrase, Sentence, Context, at Interpretation ng mambabasa (Ang reference ay nasa itaas).

    Narito ang nakasaad sa Rev. 12:1-2 (KJV) “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: {12:2} And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”

    Ang interpretation ng dalubhasa sa Biblia tungkol sa woman ng Rev. 12:1 ay:

    1. Israel = Mic. 4:9-10; Isa. 66:7; Gen. 37:9–11
    2. Eve = she is part of the three-way conflict also involving her Seed and the Dragon, who is identified with the ancient serpent (the one from Eden) in 20:2. This mirrors the conflict in Genesis 3:15 between Eve, the serpent, and her unborn seed—which in turn is a symbol of the conflict between Mary, Satan, and Jesus. (from James Akin of Catholic Answer)
    3. Church = because, as Rev. 12:17 tells us, “the rest of her offspring” are those who bear witness to Jesus, making them Christians. from James Akin of Catholic Answer)
    4. Mary (Mother of Jesus) = Revelation 11:19- 12:1 it is Mary the Ark of New Covenant

    Narito ang mga sumusonod na references:

    Holy Bible- Douay Rheims Version, Page 295 –Apocalypse 12:1 Footnote -“A woman. The Church of God. It may also, by allusion, be applied to our blessed Lady. The church with the sun, that is, with Christ. She hath the moon, that is, the changeable things of the world, under her feet: and the twelve stars with which she is crown, are the twelve apostles: She is in labor and pain, whilst she brings forth her children, and Christ in them, in the midst of afflictions and persecutions.

    The New Testament of the New American Bible, Page 626- Revelation 12: 1f. 4-6 Notes: “The Woman adorned with the sun, the moon, and the starts symbolized God’s people in the Old and New Testament; Gn 37, 9f. The Israel of old gave birth to Messiah (v 5) and then became the New Israel, the church, which suffers persecution by the dragon (vv 6:13-17).

    Biblia sa Kristohanong Katilingban (Christian Community Bible) Page 485- Revelation 12 Notes: “Ang babaye nagpasabot sa katawhan nga mitabang sa plano sa Diyos, si Maria nga nanganak kang Jesus; siya ang simbahan nga “mikagiw sa disyerto”, sa ato pa, nagkinabuhing espirituhanong layo sa kalibutan, apan giamoma sa pulong sa Diyos panahon sa panglutos. TAGALOG: “Ang babae (ibigsabihin) ay ang mamamayang tomulong sa plano ng Diyos, Si Maria na nagluwal kay Jesus; siya ang simbahan na pumunta (tumongo) sa disyerto, ibigsabihin ay nabubuhay sa espiritual (spiritual way of living) na malayo sa pansanlibutan na buhay (masasamang bagay), peru inaalagaan ng Diyos sa panahon ng kagipitan.”

    Revelation a Divine Message of Hope by: Fr. Bruce Vawter, CM. ((Catholic Information Service, Knights of Columbus Supreme Council, New Haven CT 06521-1971)) – (Imprimatur John F. Whealon, Archbishop of Hartford) Page 44  “The first sign is “a woman clothed with the sun; with the moon beneath her feet and the twelve starts in a crown about her head. As we see from the complete description of this woman (12:1-2, 5-6), she is both the Church and the Mother of the Messiah. The Church is presented both glorified and in her period of trial, all at once… The Child to whom the woman gives birth in v.5 is certainly Jesus, as He is describe in the messianic language of Psalm 2:9.

    Conclusion:

    Kaya kung ang buong chapter sa Revelation 12 ang pagbabatayan natin iyan po ay hindi kay Santa Maria lamang nakabasi o nakatoon peru kung pagbabasihan natin ang Literal na ina ni Cristo na nag panganak sa kanya hindi rin mali na e-apply natin ang Revelation 12:1 kay Santa Maria.

    Ngayon alin po jan ang totoo? ang sabi ng pari sa aklat nio na virgin mary ang bab sa revelation 12:1
    o sa catholic bible ng douay rhimes version na hindi raw si virgin marry ang babae sa revelation 12:!?

    Alin ba ang totoo sa dalawa ang Pari ba (ALBER HUNNI) o ang CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION? Pareho pong totoo ang dalawa SAPAGKAT KUNG TATAPOSIN LANG NATIN ANG PAGBASA SA FOOTNOTE NG CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION GANITO ANG NAKALAGAY:

    CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION, PAGE 272- REVELATION 12:1 FOOTENOTE: A woman: this woman is not the Blessed Virgin, for the details of the prophecy do not fit her. The prophesy pictures the Church of the Old and New Covenants. The beams of the divine glory clothe her, the moon is beneath her feet, she is crowned with a crown of twelve stars, and she must bring forth Christ to the world. By accommodation the church applies this verse to the Blessed Virgin.

    Samakatuwid nais ng may akda ng CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION na hindi lamang dapat nakatoon ang pagkakaintindi (ng mga Katoliko) sa Revelation 12:1 kay Santa Maria sapagkat ang pinag-uusapan na “BABAE” sa boung chapter 12 ng Revelation ay hindi ni SANTA MARIA naka sentro.

    Nasagutan po ang inyong tanong.

    Salamat

    I find your answering very interesting. However, there are some points you need to clarify.

    (1) You mentioned different school of thoughts in interpreting Revelation. In fact, you mentioned at least four ways of understanding it: PRETEST, HISTORICAL, FUTURIST AND SYMBOLIC.
    Are you suggesting that in every verses or chapters in revelation, there is always at least four possible interpretations based on the school of thoughts that you aforementioned above?

    (2) If the Bible is inspired by God, and He is not the source of confusion, since it is possible that there are conflicting interpretations as result of your proposed adherence of how to understand it, did God authorize it so?

    (3) Concerning the conflict between the catholic bible commentaries and the priest’s interpretation, you said that duoay Rhiems commentary just suggested that one should not center his interpretations on the symbolic but also to the literal meaning.

    However, i see that your aesthetic spin doctoring is an understatment if not misleading. Observed the unambiguous comments of the duoay in your quote above.

    It says: “A woman: this woman is not the Blessed Virgin, for the details of the prophecy do not fit her. The prophesy pictures the Church of the Old and New Covenants”

    The commentary was so categorical. It does not say that it is not Mary based on the symbolic meaning. It didn’t even bother to put a caution sign that it the verse suggest other interpretations.

    on the contrary, it makes a simple declarative sentence, so assertive, saying “it’s not mary because the details of the prohecy do not fit her.” If it does not fit, then don’t make it fit.

    Papano po na ang Church of the Old and New Covenants ang binabanggit doon sa rev 12:1? Na ang banggit po roon BLESSED VIRGIN? Sino po ba yang BLESSED VIRGIN sa rev? Di po ba yang si maria na sabi ng pari sa aklat?

    Kasi po sa tingin ko magka kontra tlga ang aklat na isinulat ng pari at catholic bible.

    Kasi kung sasabihin nio sakin na sa Church of the old and new covenants yun eh ka kontra nmn sa aklat nio.

    paki paliwanag po…salamat…

    May tanong po ako..

    Sa isang aklat na isinulat ng PARI by ALBER HUNNI page.59

    ” The epistles has taken from the apocalips,a woman surrounded by the sons splender who is wearing a crown by the twelve star and the moon beniete her feet.Appears to saint john avoice announce that is hour salvation of the kingdom of jesus christ,The application to the IMMACULATE VIRGIN of LORDES is clear.

    So Maliwanag.. Na sabi ng PARI nio na TURO ng IGLESIA KATOLIKA na si VIRGIN MARRY ang BABAE sa Apocalipsis 12:1.”

    Anu nmn ang sinasabi ng catholic bible sa DOUAY RHIMES VERSION sa {FOOTNOTE} ng APOCALIPSIS 12:1 ganito ang sabi…

    A woman,this WOMAN is NOT the BLESSED VIRGIN!

    Ngayon alin po jan ang 22o? ang sabi ng pari sa aklat nio na virgin marry ang bab sa revlation 12:1

    o sa catholic bible ng douay rhimes version na hindi raw si virgin marry ang babae sa revation 12:!?

    pakisagot po..

    SINAGUTAN NI BRO. G-ONE PAISONES

    Dear Bro. Jason,

    Salamat sa comento mo sa amin, naway ang Dios ay gagabay sa iyo at sa iyong pamilya sa mga pag-araw araw na Gawain.

    Sa hindi pa natin sagutin ang tanong mo, dapat malaman natin kung ano ang Book of Revelation o Apocalypse. Narito ang mga sumusunod na pahayag hinggil sa Book of Revelation:

    NIV Compact Dictionary of the Bible (The Zondervan Corporation-OMF Literature Phil. Page 504-505 (emphasis added) -REVELATION, BOOK OF THE (Gr. Apokalypsis, an unveiling). Sometimes called the Apocalypse. This is the last book of the Bible and the only book of NT that is exclusively prophetic in character.

    There are four main schools of interpretation:

    1. Pretest- holds that Revelation is simply a picture of conditions prevalent in the Roman Empire in the late first century, cast in the form of vision and prophecy to conceal its meaning from hostile pagan.
    2. Historical view contends that the book represents in symbolic form the entire course of church history from the time of writing to the final consummation, and that the mystical figures describe in it can be identified with human events in history.
    3. Futurist- on the basis of the threefold division given in Revelation 1:19, suggests that “what you have seen” refers to the immediate environment of the seer and vision of Christ (1”9-19), “what is now” denotes the churches of Asia or the church age they symbolize (2:1-3:22), and “what will take later” relates to those events that will attend the return of Christ and the establishment of the city of God.
    4. Idealist or Symbolic school treats Revelation as purely a dramatic picture of the conflict of good and evil.

    The New Jerome Bible Handbook, Page 310. The Apocalypse (Revelation) narrates extraordinary visions that concern things normally unseen and unheard by human beings. It is unique in the New Testament, but not the ancient world… The Revelation has two focuses: Secrets of the cosmos and secret of the future. Secrets are revealed in order to present a particular interpretation of the times and to persuade the hearers or readers to think and live in a certain way.

    Sa nasambit natin sa itaas, mapapansin natin na ang Revelation ay may maraming interpretations batay na rin sa bumabasa.

    Atin pong talakayin ang Revelation Chapter 12 na basihan sa iyong katanungan.

    Kay ALBER HUNNI is Santa Maria ang Rev. 12:1; sa DOUAY RHIMES VERSION (St. Joseph Edition) hindi si Santa Maria ang Revelation 12. Makikita po natin na para pong contradict ang statement ng dalawa (o masasabi ng iba na contrary talaga ang dalawa). Peru bakit po sinabi natin na parang contradict ang dalawa? Narito ang kasagutan:

    Dapat nating malaman na ang Revelation 12:1 ay isang fusion imagery o ang topiko ng Revelation ay may maraming kahulugan at nakadependi ito sa History, Phrase, Sentence, Context, at Interpretation ng mambabasa (Ang reference ay nasa itaas).

    Narito ang nakasaad sa Rev. 12:1-2 (KJV) “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: {12:2} And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.”

    Ang interpretation ng dalubhasa sa Biblia tungkol sa woman ng Rev. 12:1 ay:

    1. Israel = Mic. 4:9-10; Isa. 66:7; Gen. 37:9–11

    2. Eve = she is part of the three-way conflict also involving her Seed and the Dragon, who is identified with the ancient serpent (the one from Eden) in 20:2. This mirrors the conflict in Genesis 3:15 between Eve, the serpent, and her unborn seed—which in turn is a symbol of the conflict between Mary, Satan, and Jesus. (from James Akin of Catholic Answer)

    3. Church = because, as Rev. 12:17 tells us, “the rest of her offspring” are those who bear witness to Jesus, making them Christians. from James Akin of Catholic Answer)

    4. Mary (Mother of Jesus) = Revelation 11:19- 12:1 it is Mary the Ark of New Covenant

    Narito ang mga sumusonod na references:

    Holy Bible- Douay Rheims Version, Page 295 –Apocalypse 12:1 Footnote -“A woman. The Church of God. It may also, by allusion, be applied to our blessed Lady. The church with the sun, that is, with Christ. She hath the moon, that is, the changeable things of the world, under her feet: and the twelve stars with which she is crown, are the twelve apostles: She is in labor and pain, whilst she brings forth her children, and Christ in them, in the midst of afflictions and persecutions.

    The New Testament of the New American Bible, Page 626- Revelation 12: 1f. 4-6 Notes: “The Woman adorned with the sun, the moon, and the starts symbolized God’s people in the Old and New Testament; Gn 37, 9f. The Israel of old gave birth to Messiah (v 5) and then became the New Israel, the church, which suffers persecution by the dragon (vv 6:13-17).

    Biblia sa Kristohanong Katilingban (Christian Community Bible) Page 485- Revelation 12 Notes: “Ang babaye nagpasabot sa katawhan nga mitabang sa plano sa Diyos, si Maria nga nanganak kang Jesus; siya ang simbahan nga “mikagiw sa disyerto”, sa ato pa, nagkinabuhing espirituhanong layo sa kalibutan, apan giamoma sa pulong sa Diyos panahon sa panglutos. TAGALOG: “Ang babae (ibigsabihin) ay ang mamamayang tomulong sa plano ng Diyos, Si Maria na nagluwal kay Jesus; siya ang simbahan na pumunta (tumongo) sa disyerto, ibigsabihin ay nabubuhay sa espiritual (spiritual way of living) na malayo sa pansanlibutan na buhay (masasamang bagay), peru inaalagaan ng Diyos sa panahon ng kagipitan.”

    Revelation a Divine Message of Hope by: Fr. Bruce Vawter, CM. ((Catholic Information Service, Knights of Columbus Supreme Council, New Haven CT 06521-1971)) – (Imprimatur John F. Whealon, Archbishop of Hartford) Page 44 à “The first sign is “a woman clothed with the sun; with the moon beneath her feet and the twelve starts in a crown about her head. As we see from the complete description of this woman (12:1-2, 5-6), she is both the Church and the Mother of the Messiah. The Church is presented both glorified and in her period of trial, all at once… The Child to whom the woman gives birth in v.5 is certainly Jesus, as He is describe in the messianic language of Psalm 2:9.

    Conclusion:

    Kaya kung ang buong chapter sa Revelation 12 ang pagbabatayan natin iyan po ay hindi kay Santa Maria lamang nakabasi o nakatoon peru kung pagbabasihan natin ang Literal na ina ni Cristo na nag panganak sa kanya hindi rin mali na e-apply natin ang Revelation 12:1 kay Santa Maria.

    Ngayon alin po jan ang totoo? ang sabi ng pari sa aklat nio na virgin mary ang bab sa revelation 12:1
    o sa catholic bible ng douay rhimes version na hindi raw si virgin marry ang babae sa revelation 12:!?

    Alin ba ang totoo sa dalawa ang Pari ba (ALBER HUNNI) o ang CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION? Pareho pong totoo ang dalawa SAPAGKAT KUNG TATAPOSIN LANG NATIN ANG PAGBASA SA FOOTNOTE NG CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION GANITO ANG NAKALAGAY:

    CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION, PAGE 272- REVELATION 12:1 FOOTENOTE: A woman: this woman is not the Blessed Virgin, for the details of the prophecy do not fit her. The prophesy pictures the Church of the Old and New Covenants. The beams of the divine glory clothe her, the moon is beneath her feet, she is crowned with a crown of twelve stars, and she must bring forth Christ to the world. By accommodation the church applies this verse to the Blessed Virgin.

    Samakatuwid nais ng may akda ng CONFRATERNITY-DOUAY VERSION na hindi lamang dapat nakatoon ang pagkakaintindi (ng mga Katoliko) sa Revelation 12:1 kay Santa Maria sapagkat ang pinag-uusapan na “BABAE” sa boung chapter 12 ng Revelation ay hindi ni SANTA MARIA naka sentro.

    Nasagutan po ang inyong tanong.

    Salamat

    G: One,

    let’s talk about christ dual nature since you are fresh from
    a debate about christ diety.

    unlike nestorious who believed that christ has two separate beings, the catholic church believes that he is a complete being both god and man. when christ said in matthew that he didn’t know the hour and day of his return, was his godhead was left somewhere else? or he was still a god and the same time human contain in a single being?

    REPLY:

    We do our job without any single centavos paid us by our Priest and Bishops, because like them we Catholic Faith Defenders know the truth and must share this truth in all people.

    Bishops and Priest were busy and there office are for teaching..etc.. (with a minor percentage of arguing). So as Catholic lay and Part of the Body of Christ, we Catholic Faith Defenders have duties to defend and teach lay people in the fundamental doctrine of Catholic Church.

    Bro, alam namin ang katotohanan kaya kami ay may mission na magtoro at domipinsa sa Catholic Faith kahit na wala kaming sahod na matatanggap sa mga pari…

  46. delaacecruz said

    To CFD:

    You said that priests and bishops are so busy. Oh common man, tell that do the marines. Priests assigned in different parishes wake up in the morning to celebrate mass from 4 am to 7:am. After that, they just rest the entire day. They only get busy during the months of April and May where there are lots of fiestas. For the bishops, tell me, what makes the bishop busy the entire day aber?

    Another point, is it not that the apostles were in the forefront of defending christ’s faith. They never cowed in any argumentation and they never tired in their work of professing their faith. The priests and bishops said they are vicars of christ, therefore, they should be in the front not in the back.

    I will submit that the underling like you should learn the faith of your overlord. However, when those who claimed to be the direct representatives of christ don’t have the nerve to do your job, then they don’t deserve to go to men’s room.

    Lastly, why is it that the Catholic Church did not assign priests to solely do your job or to work with you side by side in a debate? The answer is simple: They give less priority to your ministry. How many CFDs doing concenterted efforts in answering questions in this website? Do you have different offices nationwide, equip with computers and servers monitoring this website, which is financed by the Church? Tell me? The truth is you work individually or in few groups.

    If you, as a layman does your homework for the faith, the more priests and bishops are obliged to do the same. It’s their primary job to defend their faith.

    Why is it that other religions have the time to do their primordial work defending their faith?

    You explain!

    by the way, don’t forget to answer my questions about the issue brought up by Mr Abalos concerning the conflict between the duoay and the priest’s commentary.

    • catholicfaithdefender said

    For all intents and purposes, i reposted my blog 32 and im asking everyone, who view this site to compare it to CFD’s reply in blog 36 and tell me whether or not his reply is reponsive to my questions and rebuttals.

    I find your answer very interesting. However, there are some points you need to clarify.

    (1) You mentioned different school of thoughts in interpreting Revelation. In fact, you mentioned at least four ways on how to understand it: PRETEST, HISTORICAL, FUTURIST AND SYMBOLIC.
    Are you suggesting that in every verses or chapters in revelation, there is always at least four possible interpretations based on the school of thoughts that you aforementioned above?

    TO CFD: (WHERE IS YOUR ANSWER ON THIS QUESTION IN BLOG 36 HA?)

    (2) If the Bible is inspired by God, and He is not the source of confusion, since it is possible that there are conflicting interpretations as result of your proposed adherence to the different school of thoughts, did God authorize or intend it to be that way?

    TO CFD: (WHERE IS YOUR ANSWER ON THIS QUESTION IN BLOG 36 HA?)

    (3) Concerning the conflict between the catholic bible commentaries and the priest’s interpretation, you said that duoay Rhiems commentary just suggested that one should not center his interpretations on the symbolic but also to the literal meaning.

    TO CFD: (WHERE IS YOUR ANSWER ON THIS QUESTION IN BLOG 36 HA?)

    However, i see that your aesthetic spin doctoring is an understatment if not misleading. Observed the unambiguous comments of the duoay in your quote above.

    It says: “A woman: this woman is not the Blessed Virgin, for the details of the prophecy do not fit her. The prophesy pictures the Church of the Old and New Covenants”

    The commentary was so categorical. It does not say that it is not Mary based on the symbolic meaning. It didn’t even bother to put a caution sign that the verse implies other interpretations.

    on the contrary, it makes a simple declarative sentence, so assertive, saying “it’s not mary because the details of the prohecy do not fit her.” If it does not fit, then don’t make it fit.

    TO CFD: (WHERE IS YOUR ANSWER ON THIS QUESTION IN BLOG 36 HA?)

    THINK AGAIN MR CFD. You are ignoring and ducking my rebuttals and questions.

    really! name me a bishop in the philippines, who has been debating with other religions?

    How about priests? name me priests who are currently engaging in apologetic campaign defending the catholic faith at every fronts?

    But unfortunately for you, their number is just less than your five fingers. In fact, it’s the laymen who maintain this website, not priests and bishops.

    Tell the people, how many priests and bishops blogging this website helping you to defend your faith. You are not even a priest, and you want people to believe that they give so much importance to your cause.

    Did they help you build this website aber?

    You said you defend the faith because it’s in the bible. Aha, then is it not that in the bible the apostles, the direct vicar of christ, were on top of the helm in defending their faith.

    How about the priests and bishops are they at the forefront of the battle just like the apostles? I hope you will answer this question. Instead of posting answer again as if you’re like pre-programmed telephone operator.

        I agree. Bishops and priests are getting fewer and fewer so they are busy and the greatest contribution they can give the Catholic Faith Defender is thru prayer (especially the rosary)- the greatest power on earth (source: Pieta)

        I salute the Catholic Faith Defenders for defending the Catholic doctrines amidst accusations and hate campaigns from other non – Catholic sects who (most of them) doesn’t know how to respect other persons’ religion.

        May God Bless you more Catholic Faith Defender!

    Walang daya dahil hindi lahat ng Confraternity Bible ay mag ka tulad…

    Example: May confraternity Bible na Douay
    May Confraternity Bible na NAB

    Sa mga Bible ng Catolico na spanish may pag kakaiba rin… peru iisang version…

    Sa Latin vulgate ay ganon rin, siguro may apat na klasi ng Latin Vulgate na Bible…

    answer:

    oh sabi mo “May confraternity Bible na Douay
    May Confraternity Bible na NAB

    tanong: jan sa sabi mo na may confraternity biblie na douay at confraternity bible na NAB,ang nakasulat ba jan sa Mateo 16:18 ay HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC APOSTOLIC CHRUCH??? PAKI SAGOT

    at pagnapatunayan ko na wala tlga mababasa jan sa confraternity na pinagsasabi mo,tatanggapin mu bang nandaya tlga kayo sa debate???

    at tungkol sa debate between cfd vs inc dun sa bohol na nangyari nga nun august 2006 tlgang tinatanggi mong di kayo nandaya?

    e bakit nga moderator na nagpasiya na nandaya nga kayo sinuri nga parehong dalang confraternity eh PAREHONG PAREHO nga eh!!! eh kung di nga yon pareho sana sinabi ng moderator na magkaiba ang parehong bible na confraternity tpos sabihin na ndi kayo nandaya.. eh daya tlga eh…

    wag sana kayo magalit mga cfd pero nakikita ko sa inyo na puro nalang kayo palusot eh.. kung baga butata na! humihirit pa! haysss

    siguro nmn kilala nio si talibong na cfd db? sabi kasi sakin nung isa nio kasamahan cfd nakay talibong raw ang video ng debate.

    baka nmn pede nio kausapin si talibong malapit nmn cia sa inyo eh.. ilabas nia ung video ng debate dun sa bohol {talibong {cfd} vs ramil parba{inc}} para nmn malaman rin ng mga tao rito kung may daya nga o wala. im sure! di nio ilalabas yan.

      Bro jason abalos,

      Bakit mo ba ipinipilit na nandaya ang CFD sa debate sa bohol??
      At sinabi mopa na “bakit nga moderator na nagpasiya na nandaya nga kayo sinuri nga parehong dalang confraternity eh PAREHONG PAREHO nga eh!!””

      May ebedensya kaba na sinabi ng moderator yon???

      Ang totoo na sinabi ng moderator ay taliwas sa sinabi mo…..

      Ang Confraternity version ni brad wendell ay hindi tampered…

      at ano ba ang gusto mo jason abalos?? kung hindi ka naniniwala sa resolta ng debate… abay ulitin natin ang debate…

      ano payag kaba na tayo ang mag dedebate???

      Ang tema na pag dedebatihan natin ay ganon rin sa pinagdedebatihan nila Parba at wendell…

      payag ka??

        to: cfd, bakit wala na pong sumagsagot sa tanong ko sa website na ito,cfd kayo db?

    Hmm ang una talagang religion for christ is Catholic. Yong galing sa apostles then pumunta sila sa Rome bakit rome? at that time kasi powerful ang rome subra. Nong na convert ang Rome ayon na ang Roman Catholic.

    Syempre, Roman catholic is steal has a human part. Us. We commit sin. In effect of that sin may umalis yong protestant. (please see history on Medieval times).

    Tapos yong protestant nag ka watak watak may anglican, presbeterian etc….

    Nag ka watak watak kasi naniwala ang isa na tama siya ang isa din feeling tama siya. So yon watak watak hiwalay.

    Okay I admit maraming teaching noon sa catholic church na mali or not suited for the signs of time like the limbo etc. Peru tinama niya eto as time passess by. So marami na siyang an correct.

    Peru yong mga bago dyan, paano na? bago palang kayo, so marami kayong mali mali na isip nyo na tama peru as time passes by babaguhin niyo rin kasi mali.

    To be safe and sure sa Catholic an ako kasi it is already near perfection and kayo mga small sects dyan , cults or small groups. Bago palang kayo.

    Bantay din kayo kasi ang best na business is to create a religious group kasi walang bayad tax.
    Magaling ka mang pursuade or magaling ka man luko kasi magaling ka mag debate , yayaman ka. Please check the history of your group.

    • banson said

      I agree with this post… Sana suriin din ng mga INC ang biography o lifestory ng kanilang lider na si Felix Manalo…. Diba palipat lipat siya ng religion…. So yon ang klasi ng taong walang direksyon sa buhay, confused, at dinadamay ang ibang tao sa kanyang kalituhan…

      Ang problema kasi ng INC ay humiram lang sa bibliya ng mga Katoliko ay binago pa. Okay lang kung humiram basta hindi lang baluktotin ang katotohanan.

      kung ang sinasabi mong iisa ang paniniwala nating lahat, sa freemasonry yan na doktrina. we have one God but because of the way people interpret it, they named it as their own. ang totoo, ang God of Israel ang totoong God at si Jesus ay God. Hindi cla naniwala so ung iba naniwala sa mga maling aral ni Martin Luther.

      protestants were rooted from martin luther and look what he contribute? millions of people were deceived..and look who’s next? it could be you if you don’t stand firm about the real truth…

      just share…

    For those who question the name of the Catholic religion, KNOW THIS: There was only one christian church then, before others turned away from the mother church, di binibigyang pansin ang particular term kasi nga iisa lang e, kaya nga UNIVERSAL church lang yang tinawag dati kasi wala pang Protestants nun at INC at iba pa sa branches ng Kristyanismo… Dun na nagsimula ang mga titles nung may humiwalay na… at ang medyo BOLD mangtugis yung iba dun sa mother church kasi nga gustong tibagin ang original ng mga pirata…

    DELAACECRUZ, bishops, priests are not really into debates, kasi nakalagay kasi ika nga, the more you speak, the more na vulnerable ka sa sin, …

    To all anti Catholic people, Kung si Father Corapi lang din ang madedebate nyo, nakakaawa kayong lahat na mga restless Catholic attackers, i guess waste of time lang… Madaming matitinding Catholic authorities kapatid, si St Augustine, matinding defender yun… By the way, the apostles resolved this long long before. after nilnag pinahayag (nakasulat dun sa bible yung mga naencounter nila’t nakipagdiskusyon sa kanila ay they would describe it) they advised the church to stop doing senseless conversations to those makukulit at walang sense ng tamang pang-unawa… Galing yan sa katataas taasan kapatid… Kaya sana maiintindihan ninyo na iwas sa debate ang may mga katungkulan sa simbahang katolika…

    I am just an ordinary person and will defend my church righteously… I pray to GOD, we all be united once again, if not now, soon… I do not condemn any religion, may we just live as one…

    Kung gusto mong magtanong, lahat ng tanong mo AY AKING SASAGUTIN………………….. isa akong katoliko at iginagalang ko ang relibhiyon ng bawat isa,… pero sa mga nabasa ko sa iyo…… hindi naman na makatuwiranm na siraan mo ang lahat ng mga katoliko……………..

    i-email mo ang lahat ng iyong mga katanungan at ang lahat ng iyan ay lakas loob kong sasagutin…………… sa ngayon.. puro galit ang nasa puso mo para sa BANAL NA ROMANA KATOLIKA AT APOSTOLIKONG SIMBAHAN…..

    isang sagot……… wala sa biblia ang salitang”IGLESI NI CRISTO” mga maling salin ang ipinakalat ng mga tao… dahil ang salita na para sa cristo na griego na “cristo” ay hindi lumitaw sa pangungusap na “alagaan ninyo ang iglesi ni cristo” bagkus ang salitang “theon” ang tunay na lumabas na nangangahulugan na “Diyos” KAYA ANG TAMANG PANGUNGUSAP AY “iglesia ng Diyos”

    kung mapupunta sa impeyrno ang mga hindi nabinyagan sa INC…. ano ang nangyari sa mga magulang ni Felix? hindi ba sila naligtas? at maging si Felix ay hindi nabinyagan ng sarili niyang sekta… kung totoo ang lahat ng kanyang mga sinsabi… sino ang unang mapupunta sa impeyrno??? ang isyu ng dugo? trinidad? lahat ay aking sasagutin sa saligan ng biblia, banal na taradisyon at ng simbahang katoliko….

    sabihin mo sa mga kaibigan mo na itanong na ang lahat ng tanong, pero tuparin mo ang iyong ipinangako na kung mapapatunayan ko… ehhh… magpapaconvert ka sa IGLESYA ROMANA KATOLIKA….

    ang mga sinabi ko ay pahapyaw lamang…………

    The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Sadly the author is contented to some subjective views instead of putting the audio of the debate here to enlighten people. Is the debate anointed these people to be the official judge? INC has never been defeated in public debates.

    lahat ba ng mga aral sa roman catholic chruch ay pawang nakabase lahat sa biblia? ung mga aral nio ba ay sa biblia ninyo kinukuha?

    yan lang po.

    • Julius said

      sa bibliya kinuha kasi ang CATHOLIC CHURCH naman ang gumawa ng bibliya…

    • tokmok said

      yup lahat. Tapos hindi naman lahat nasa biblia lang ah. Di lahat nang aral nandyan lang biblia.

    • jeoff said

      Pareng Jason,

      I just happened to surf this site.I’m also a Catholic and believed that it is the true Church not because I was born a Catholic but because I am convinced.

      The basis of catholic faith is the Holy bible and Holy Tradition(i.e.,teachings of the apostles, passed by word of mouth,from the earliest times up to now). Before the bible was written, there was already the tradition. Then they (the apostles and later their successors-you may search on the works of the fathers of the Church)thought that it would be better to write those teachings,so it won’t be forgotten..then came the bible.
      And so, the answer to your question is YES…What the Church does (The Magisterium)is to expand those teachings (both in the bible and tradition).The Church does not make new doctrines.God’s revelation ended with the death of St. John The Apostle..And as Jesus promised, the Holy Spirit guides the Church so it won’t go astray from the teachings laid down by Christ.
      Thank you.

    • catholicfaithdefender said

      Ikaw Jason Abalos ka… paminsan-minsan ang mga tanong mo is out of topic… i’m just following your post…. sa tanong mong….

      “lahat ba ng mga aral sa roman catholic chruch ay pawang nakabase lahat sa biblia? ung mga aral nio ba ay sa biblia ninyo kinukuha?”

      Ang sagot ko ay malaking “OO”.. Dahil unang-una ang bibliya namin ay hindi binago at klarong klaro ang turo mula sa Old Testament to New Testament…. Ikaw tatanungin kita…”lahat ba ng mga aral sa INC ay pawang nakabase lahat sa biblia? may mga aral pabang makukuha sa bibliyang nabago na?

  74. May napansin po ako sa mga INC sa estilo ng kanilang pagtatanong lalo na kung masagot ang mga ito. Ang kanilang estilo ng pmaratng ay basi lang sa kanuilang opinion o haka-haka at pawang panlilinlang sa mga tao.Ngayon, kung gamitin kaya natin sa akanila ang kanilang formula tingnan nga natin kung kaya nilang sagutin ito?
    1. Sa bi nila ang papa ang 666 at iyan ay kanilang patunayan gamit ang bible. sa haba ng talak wala namang napatunayan… eh kung e-aply natin ito sa kanilang founder na si FELIX YSAGUN MANALO, pakipansin po ang unang pangala niay ay nasulat sa English, ito bay nagkataon lang o sinadya para itago ang kanayang tunay na pagkatao? kung itagalog kaya natin ang pangalang FELIX maging FELIKS O PELIKS YSAGUN MANALO kung bibilangin o sumahin natin ay lalabas na 666 o di ba? take note ayonn sa bible ay ang anti kristo ay makikilala sa bilang ng pangalan di ba? Kung sabagay inamin naman ni Manalo ito kasi sabi niya ang IBONG MANDARAGIT sa isiah, alam niyo ba? para sa mga israelita ang ibong mandaragit ay isang karumal dumal na hayop ang makahipo nito ay itinuturing na marumi ayon sa kaugalian ng mga hudyo…. at sumusimbulo sa demonyo… tama di ba?
    2. Para sa kaalaman po nila ay ibong mandarigit ay si CIRO.HE! HE! galing no?
    3. Sabi ng INC, sinabi daw ba ni cristo na tawaging Iglesia Katolika Aspostolika Romana ang kanyang tinayong iglisia? At saan daw mababasa sa bible and Iglisia Katolika Apostolika RoMana? ngayon gamitin ulit natin yong istilo nila sa pagtatanong:
    a. Sinabi rin ba ni cristo na magtayo kayo ng sarili ninyong iglisia at tawaging iglisia ni cristo at saan mababasa sa bible ang pangalan ni manalo? at kung meron kahit middle name lang nya ay lilipat ako sa kanila..tama po ba?

    4. Sabi ng INC si Panginoong hesus ay “the highest creation of God” Tapos sabi nila mas dakila o higit si manalo kay krsito kasi siya daw (manalo) ay anghel si kristo ay tao lang…ganun?! ang anghel ba ay hindi likha ng diyos? ang tindi ng logi nila ah…kakabilieve..matakot naman sana kayo sa diyos! Sabi ng panginoong hesus ” ako at ang ama ay iisa”, ang nakakita sa akin ay nakakita na sa ama… ang kumikilala sa akin ay kumikilala sa ama na nagsugo sa akin. ibig sabihin kung ano ang pagkakilala mo kay hesus ay siya ring pagkilala mo s diyos ama di po ba…sa madaling salita para sa kanila ang diyos ama ay tao rin lang tama ba yan ang logic nila. hahaha! mga sinungaling! sabi pa nga sa bible “ang demonyo ay naniniwala na may diyos at nangagsipanginig” sila di naniniwala na may diyos..it means masahol pa sila sa demonyo… ang pikon ay talo…pero yan ang totoo…salamat po.

    ang totoo jason my pagkakataon na inaamin nila na my pagsamba sila sa larawan my pagkakataon rin nmn na itinatanggi nila na sila raw ay hindi sumasamba sa larawan,kaya nga hindi mu tlga maintindihan ang paninindigan eh..

    wala raw sila aral na pagsamba sa larawan ginagalang lang daw nila, eh aklat nila mismo nagsasabi umaamin na sila ay my pagsamba sa larawan eh, sa aklat na;

    “catesismo ni padre luis de amezquita p.82 at 85″

    “pagbangon mo sa banig ay agad kang manikluhod sa harap ng isang cruz o isang mahal na larawan.kung maninikluhod ka sa tapat ng altar ay magwika ka ng ganito: SINASAMBA KITA.”

    isang pang aklat:

    “siya ang inyong pakinggan” ang aral na katoliko ni padre enrique demond,p.12

    “kung ating SINASAMBA ang LARAWAN ni KRISTONG napapako sa krus,dinadasal natin:SINASAMBA KITA ar PINUPURI panginoong kong jesukristo”

    hello jason,huwag ka po makinig sa payo ng hindi katoliko kasi lalo ka po mas maguguluhan,. Kausapin mo po ang pari sa parish na kinabibilangan mo at hintayin mo dito ang mga kasagutan ng CFD sa mga tanong mo. Magdasal ka po at tiyak na liliwanag ang iyong kaisipan. Ganito lang pa po ang logic. Kung meron kang mahal sa buhay na malayo sayo. Di ba mas gugustuhin mo na may maitago kang larawan nya? Minsan nga hinahalikan mo pa ang larawan nya pero ibig bang sabihin nito ay sinasamba mo na sya? Paano kung punitin ang larawan na yan? ano kaya po mararamdaman mo? di ba masasaktan ka? Bakit ka masasaktan kung punitin ang larawan ng iyong mahal sa buhay kung iyon ay nasa papel lamang? Hindi naman yun papel na may larawan ang mahal mo kundi yun ne ri represent ng nasa larawan,. Ako bilang isang katoliko alam ko po kung gaano kahalaga ang mga larawan at rebolto sa ating pananampalataya.

    • jason abalos said

      hello sir/mam: Ang dapat po cguro niong sagutin ay ung mga aklat katoliko na DOKTRINA ninyo na nagsasabi UMAAMIN na ang mga KATOLIKO ay SUMASAMBA sa LARAWAN..Ang 22o marami pang aklat KATOLIKO nagsasabi at UMAAMIN na ang mga katoliko ay sumasamba sa larawan kung ipopost ku pa d2 kung gz2 mo hahaba nga lang tayo..

      sabi mu pa po nirerepresent nio lang ang nsa larawan? labag na labag po yan sa sinasabi ng BIBLIA..

      Isaias 46:5 “Kanino ninyo ako ITUTULAD,atIPAPARIS,at IWAWANGIS AKO,UPANG KAMI AY MAGKAGAYA?

      Ang DIYOS mismo ang nagtatnong retorical question,ibig sabihin lang WALA siayang KATULAD,wala siyang KAPARIS,wala siyang KAWANGIS,wala siyang KAGAYA..

      “Ang DIYOS ay ESPIRITU” Juan 4:24″ “Ang ESPIRITU ay walang LAMAN at BUTO” Lucas 24:39″ Kaya tanong? PANO MU SIYA IGAGAWA NG LARAWAN? KANINO MU SIYA ITUTULAD??

      kung nirerepresent nio sa DIYOS NYU PINATUTUNGKOL? labag po uli sa BIBLIA..

      Isaias 42:8 “Ako ang panginoon na siyang aking pangalan at ang aking kaluwalhatian ay hindi ko ibibgay sa iba,o o ang akin mang kapurihan sa larawang inanyuan”

      ang kapurihan at kaluwalhatian ng diyos DI NIYA IBIBIGAY SA IBA,KAHIT PA SA LARAWAN..

      WAG PO SNA KAYO MASAKTAN DATI RIN AKO KATOLIKO AT NAGSURI KAYA WALA NAKO SA CATHOLIC CHRUCH..

Sa napakinggan kong live debate between Soc and INC minister ay kaawa-awa talaga ang inyong ministro dahil hindi lang palaging nasupalpal eh hindi pa nkapagpatayo sa Iglesia na siyay isang kasapi, pro nong itoy ini- replay sa DYFX na isang INC radio station, e tinatanggal ung bahagi na sila ay di makasagot at natatalo. Meron din akong live audio sa Bohol debate, wala talaga ang INC minister Ramil Parba, puro lang pasigaw sigaw, mahilig magpalabas at gumamit ng mga documento subalit puro putol-putol naman at pag ito basahin ng tuloy tuloy mali pala yong sinasabi ng mga INC, puro deception yong ginagawa nila para makakuha ng maraming member at marami silang kikitain sa ABULUYAN. Kaya nga sa SEC naka rehistro ang simbahang ito dahil puro pang pera at negosyo lang sila, eh founder nga nila hindi mismo kasapi sa simbahan nila dahil di nga na bautismohan, talo pa sa Cristo na binautismohan ni Juan. More better to you Mr. Abalos is to start digging and studying the history of the Catholic Church, Wis8:8 you must learn the past to gain new knowledge. Gog bless.

    @JASON ABALOS:
    1. Do not think that you are the first to understand God’s message and that there were no true Christians before you. this would be the way to become a founder of another strange sect.
    2. The word of God is life giving but that does not mean that every word is an instant problem-solver today. Each word was given by GOD to people living under concrete circumstances. Let us ponder what their problem was and what God wanted them to understand. then we may ask: what light does this message shed on the present time and circumstances.
    3.God taught his people for more than 15 centuries from ABraham to the apostles, but he did not teach everything from the beginning. do not wonder, then, that MOses and even the Prophets ignored matters as manifested by the witnesses of Jesus who is the WORD of GOD.
    4.From the very first message which God gave his people, he had in mind the coming of his Son and the mystery of his cross and resurrection. all is to be understood in this light.
    5. in the bible, what is most important is clearly taught. howver, some pages that actually have little to teach us were written in a sophisticated way according to an old literary style. do not cling to some strange sentences to the point of forsaking what is clear and fundamental.
    6. Read your bible continually, not to learn what you do not yet know, but as a proof of your LOVE and FAITHFULNESS to GOD. if you persevere, he will give you the understanding you need. -Excerpt from CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY BIBLE.

    @JASON ABALOS,

    Sa amin ay tinuturo na huwag makipagdebate kung hindi kinakailangan sapagkat ito ay nagdudulot ng galit, pagkamuhi at pagkawatak watak. tinuturo saming simbahan na PAGMAMAHAL ang siya dapat namamayani sa ating mga puso.. alam ko marami kang katanungan at ako ay natutuwa dahil sa ganitong paraan ay nalalaman mo ang tungkol sa aming pananampalataya bilang KATOLIKO.. Iglesia ka man o protestant man, lahat tayo ay magkakapatid sa piling ng ating Panginoon..

    all of your commentaries are within the text but all I have to say is that.. The other religion is trying to be hypocrite.. They tried to debate to the Catholic church without even trying to reflect the true message o the bible.. they only comprehend that the bible is a worldly measure of the true church.. The true meaning of the bible is LOVE.. We are just blinded for seeking the truth even though the truth that we are searching is already on our front talking to us face to face… the true meaning of the bible is.. “LOVE”..

    • jason abalos said

      really?? how did u know that? ikaw na my sabi “they only comprehend that the bible is a worldly measure of the true church.. thats right! lam mu rin ba na ang bible ang MAGPAPABULAAN sa MALING ARAL? na ang BIBLE ay MAGAGAMIT sa PAGTUTURO ng KATOTOHANAN {2 Timoteo 3:16} kung my tunay na pagmamahal ka kapwa mo tao,di ka papayag na sya ay mapahamak.di ka papayag na nanatili sya sa MALING ARAL at wala sa KATOTOHANAN,Di masama makipag debate kung my issue na nililiwanag..ang masamang debate yung walang kabuluhan ung pagmumulan lang ng away..

    to mr. g-one pasiones, i have a question:

    sa aklat katoliko na isinulat ng pari na ang pamagat ay:

    “The externals of the catholic church” by: John F. Sullivan,p.226

    “It is interesting to note how often OUR CHRUCH {Catholic Chruch} has availed herself of practices which were in common use among PAGANS,and which owed their origin their aproriateness for expressing something spiritual by material means.The CHRUCH and her clergy are ‘all things to all men,that they main gain all for christ.And she has often found that it was well to take what was PRAISEWORTHY in other forms of WORSHIP and adapt into her own purposes,for the sanctification of her children.”

    Thus it is TRUE,in certain sence,that some CATHOLIC RITES and CEREMONIES are a REPRODUCTION OF THOSE OF PAGAN CREEDS;…”

    Sa Pilipino:

    “Kasiya siyang mapuna kung gaano kalimit pinakikinabangan ng ating {Iglesia Katolika} ang mga kaugaian na karaniwang ginagamit ng mga PAGANO,at nagmula ang mga ito sa kanilang kaangkupang magpahayag ng isang bagay na ukol sa espiritu sa pamamagitan ng praang panglaman.Ang iglesia at ang kanyang mga pari ay ang lahat ng bagay sa lahat ng tao,upang kanilang makamit ang lahat kay kristo at madalas niyang matagpuan na mabuting PULUTIN ang mga KAPURI PURI sa ibang mga uri ng PAGSAMBA at ilapat ito sa kanyang sarilng mga layunin para sa pagpapakabanl sa kanyang mga anak,”

    “Kaya TOTOO sa isang kahulugan na ang ilang sa mga RITOS at CEREMONYA ng KATOLIKO ay HINANGO DOON sa mga PANANALIG PAGANO;….”

    Ayon po sa pari na sumulat ng aklat; ang Iglesia Katolika po NAMULOT KUMOPYA ng mga ARAL sa PAGANO.

    Ang Relihiyon po ba na may ARAL ng PAGANO na ITINATAGUYOD ay IPAGIGING sa DIYOS po ba ng tao at ikaliligtas?

    salamat po…

        isa ako sa mga dinodoktrinahan.. nag simula ako nuong 2011 january.. at ang sabi sa akin ng diakono ay isulat q kung anung mga talata at verses ang mga sinasabi sa bibliya pra kung sakaling ako ay usigin kaya kong depensahan ang aking sarili gamit ang bibliya na ginagamit namin sa bahay.

        Nakapakinig ako minsan sa Iglesia ni Cristo chronicles.. at habang nakikinig ako, hinahanap q sa bibliya namin ang mga sinasabi sa palabas. Ang bibliyang aking ginamit ay ang karaniwang bibliya na nabibili sa bookstore.

      • catholicfaithdefender said

        Serizawa…. ngayong na doctrinahan kana sa INC(Manalo) dapat rin dimo isasara ang pintoan sa pag-aaral mo sa mga aral ng Katoliko… sapagkat hindi nagsisinungaling si Cristo na hindi madadaig ng Kamatayan ang Iglesia(Mat. 16:18) taliwas ito sa itinotoro ng mga ministro ni manalo na nawala na ang unang iglesiang itinatag ni Cristo…

    Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) logo: Christian or Masonic symbol?
    I found an interesting article from Pinoy Catholic on the meaning of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) logo:
    The interlaced square and compass denotes Freemasonry
    The crown at the center denotes the Order of Amaranth, a fraternal organization of master masons and their properly qualified female relatives
    The compass, inverted triangle, and legs denotes the Order of the Eastern Star
    The light rays at the background denotes the sun god.
    The scales of justice denotes the Scales of Maat, the Egyptian goddess of truth, order, balance, and justice
    The bible inside the inverted triangle and compass refers to the use of the bible in masonic lodge for swearing oaths
    The dove and the color white denotes purity and innocence
    The color red denotes courage, zeal, and blood of life–the color of Royal Arch Masonry
    The color green denotes spiritual initiation into the high mysteries of life and god
    The color blue recalls the dome of the heavens which denotes universal brotherhood and friendship
    The inverted triangle points to the 22nd ray which probably signifies a 22nd degree mason–Knight of the Royal Axe.
    To be fair to INC, I’ll try to provide a biblical meaning to the INC logo, with their doctrines in mind:
    The dove is the dove of Noah. Just as the evil world was washed away by the flood and a new world was born, so was the apostate Catholic Church was abandoned by God and He established a new church, Iglesia ni Cristo, at the end of time.
    The sun’s rays and the bible denotes the Prologue of John: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (Jn 1:1-5) Surprisingly, this passage proves the divinity of Christ, which INC does not believe.
    The lamb and dove denotes the Baptism of Christ: “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. He is the one of whom I said, ‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’ I did not know him, but the reason why I came baptizing with water was that he might be made known to Israel.” John testified further, saying, “I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from the sky and remain upon him. I did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain, he is the one who will baptize with the holy Spirit.’” Surprisingly, the INC also does not believe on the divinity of the Holy Spirit.
    The Triangle denotes the Dogma of the Holy Trinity, which states that there are three Persons in one God. Christ himself gave the following Trinitarian formula for Bapstism: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Mt 28:19-20). Surprisingly, INC does not believe on the Trinity.

    Thus, INC uses Christian symbols, but does not believe on the meaning of the symbols. (The INC has not still provided an official interpretation of their logo).

  101. Noon sa aking kabataan, mga nasa elementarya pa lang ako, ay madalas akong nakakarinig ng mga pang-uusig sa “Iglesiang Laganap na Makaapostol at ang Puno ay nasa Roma” o “The Roman Catholic Apostolic Church.” Inaamin ko noon na nasasaktan ako noon, palibhasa ay wala akong alam sa biblia.

    Ang kalimitan nilang sinasabi sa akin ay ito, “Hindi ba gawain ng mga pagano iyan? Bawal ang ganyang pagsamba.”

    Isang araw, ay dinoktrinahan ako at binasa ang talatang ito, “…Pumunta si Jesus kasama ang kanyang mga alagad sa liblib na lugar. Nakita nila ang mga paganong Hintil na nagsisisamba. Sa kanyang paglapit ay agad siyang nagsalita nito ng malakas, “bakit ninyo sinasamba ang mga dios-diosan na Iyan? Ang Ganyang Pagsamba ay Nararapat lamang sa Ama.”

    Pagkatapos ay nagpaliwanag ang ministro ng ganito “Hindi ba mga kapatid na bawal ang pagsamba na ginagawa ng mga pagano lalong-lalo na kung gawin sa Dios? Napakalinaw ng sinabi ni Jesus. Kaya, hindi namin ginagawa ang pagsamba ng mga pagana gaya ng pagpapausok, prosisyon, kandila, altar, mag-alay ng mga bulaklak, paulit-ulit na dasal, at nga kung anu-ano pa. Subalit, ang lahat ng mga ipinagbabawal na iyan ay siyang ginagawa ng Iglesia Katolika.”

    Nabigla ako sa paliwanag na iyan ng ministro. Dahil, ang inaasahan kong paliwanag ay ito, “Ang mga ritwal o pagsamba ng mga pagano ay bawal gawin sa mga dios-diosan, sa halip ay sa Amang Dios o tunay na Dios lamang gawin ang ganyang pagsamba. Kaya, tama ang ginawa ng Iglesia Katolika, na ginagawa lamang nila ang pagsambang nararapat lamang sa tunay na Dios.”

    Sa pagkakataong iyan, ay nagliwanag sa akin na ang ginagawa nila sa Iglesia Katolika ay paninira lamang. Napagtanto ko na iba ang kanilang paliwanag at sinasabi doon sa talatang pinagbabatayan.

    Lalo pa iyang tumindi nang sabihin niya na huwag gamitin ang sariling pang-intindi dahil malaki ang posibilidad na manatili at maakay pa kami ng mga paring Katoliko.

    Sa kabuoan, ay hindi ako umanib sa kanilang iglesia.

    Sa kabuoan, ay nagliwanag sa akin na ang Iglesia Katolika Apostolika Romana ang tunay na iglesiang itinatag ni cristo.
    At higit sa lahat, ang aklat ng kasaysayan at ang hatol ng Wrld Justice ay pumanig sa iglesia katolika.

    Kaya, Hinding-hindi ako aalis sa iglesia katolika, dahil ito ang tunay na iglesia ni cristo.

  102. Castigo said

    Seeing the posts above, especially the that one testimony on indoctrination, parang pinipili lang ng mga diakono ng Iglesia yung mga ibibigay sa mga dinodoktrinahan. Maybe, nobody disagree if I say that the Bible is written by men that are inspired by the Holy Spirit. And God cannot contradict Himself. So, bakit kelangang piliin ang mga bagay na dapat tandaan ukol sa Bibliya? Its either hindi na kailangang ipaliwanag o hindi makakatulong sa pagpapatunay ng katotohanan ng mga doktrina nila ang pag-konekta ng bawat salita sa Bibliya. Hindi ba’t mas nakakasupil ng katotohanan ang ginagawa nila?

    Maari po ba akong magtanong kay Ginoong Abalos?

    Isaias 44:6
    “Ang sabi ni Yahweh na makapangyarihan sa lahat, Hari at Tagapagligtras ng Israel
    Ako ang Simula at ang Wakas, walang ibang Diyos maliban sa Akin.”

    Pahayag 1:17-18
    “Pagkakita ko sa kanya, para akong patay na nalugmok sa paanan niya. Ngunit ipinatong niya sakin ang kanyang kanang kamay at sinabi: “Huwag kang matakot! Ako ang Simula at ang Wakas, at ang Nabubuhay! Namatay ako ngunit masdan mo, ako’y buhay ngayon at mananatiling buhay magpakailanman. Nasa ilalim ng kapangyarihan ko ang kamatayan at ang daidig ng mga patay.”

    Sinabi po ni Kristo ang mga katagang iyan kay Juan sa Pahayag. Kung si Kristo po ay isang tao, ano po ang karapatang mayroon siya para sabihin niya ang mga katagang sinabi mismo ng Diyos sa Isaias? Hindi po ba kalapastanganan iyon sa Diyos? Si Moises ay naging dakila man din, gayun din si Elias. Ngunit si Kristo lamang po ang nakapagsabi ng mga parehong kataga. Paulit ulit po iyang nangyari sa Bibliya.

    idaragdag ko lang po ang link na ito para po inyong mabasa.

    Ano po ang masasabi niyo ukol dito?

    a blessed afternoon to everybody! :)

    being a Catholic, we are basically not “lectured” or “trained” to scorn the beliefs of others and does not focus on criticisms and degradation of non-Catholics. Nonetheless, the homilies are grounded on CHARITY, MODESTY, HONESTY, ETHICS, MORALITY, PEACE, SERVICE, COMPASSION and the like.
    yes, you may argue that you are SUPPOSED to spread your subjective truth, or else, we will end up in the fires of hell and so on.
    BUT why, WHY is the bulk of your TV programs, sermons and journals are sooo passionate about despising other religion, especially of the Catholic Church, labeling our faith as work of demons with conviction and your loud voices.

    well, tell me, since when did CHARITY, MODESTY, HONESTY, ETHICS, MORALITY, PEACE, SERVICE, COMPASSION, FORGIVENESS, LOVE and the like became demonic? your grounds? what? our devotion to images? the fact that we allow ingestion animal blood? our claim that Christ is God? celebrating feasts? the celibacy of the priests? the importance that we give to the Saints and our Mother Virgin Mary? Seriously? Well all of these had been defended by our good Catholic faith defenders biblically and historically. But just by simple LOGIC, HAD ANY OF THESE PRACTICES DONE OR CAUSED HARM TO YOU? BECAUSE THE FACT THAT YOU KEEP ON CURSING OUR FAITH, SEARCHING AND SEARCHING FOR MISTAKES, BRAGGING YOUR SO-CALLED ANALYSIS as you keep on using magsuri at magsuri (is it really your own analysis or that of Mr. Manalo?), i guess YOU GUYS ARE CAUSING HARM TO THE RELATIONSHIPS OF CATHOLICS AND INC FOLLOWERS.

    simple, you guys are fighting over bible verses. QUESTION: SAAN BA NAGMULA ANG BIBLIYA NA PINAGTATALUNAN NG KUNG SINU-SINO CONTAINING BOTH THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT? HINDI BA SA SIMBAHANG KATOLIKA NA ITINATAG NI HESUKRISTO?

    “Being conscious in the first place that NO MAN by himself may give a special sense to the words of the prophets.” 2 Peter 1:20

    and we all know, that Saint Peter is the rock of the Holy Catholic Church. those who wants to argue can sue the authors of our history.

    i guess that people who keep on flaming negative comments here, are just pissed because the Catholic defenders are defeating them in a field where they “believe” to be good at: siting Biblical scriptures to let others down.

    You’re hurt because you’re labeled as Manalista and we are not supposed to judge INC? WOW. NOW LOOK WHO’S TALKING?

    as i may seem to nullify my statement that we are not trained to argue the beliefs of others, we are not really, it is INC, who provoke and started this. INC started the attacks. we’re merely DEFENDING.

    and i apologize if i may have hurt INC with my words.

    at the end of the day, Christianity is not supposed to cause human separation. There are but more problems of humanity these days. this surely is not the time for us Christians to be separated.

    please do visit this video of saint jose maria escriva when a Jewish girl tell that she wanted to convert to Catholicism

    Sa lahat ng tao dito,

    I want you to know na naniniwala ako na ang lahat ng relihiyon ay may pag kakamali..

    sa katoliko meron..( my mga tao kcng pasaway talga pero sa sobrang daming katoliko sa mundo o sa isang bansa hindi kakayanin ng 1 tao ang 100 tao na itama ang mga maling gawa)hindi lahat ng tao open minded sa lahat ng bagay!

    sa iglesia hindi ko lang matanggap na sasabihin nilang sila lang mag maliligtas sa araw ng pag huhukom .. panu nila nasabi yun? nakausap ba nila ng DIYOS?

    gusto kong malaman nyo na katoliko ako! kayang kayang kong paunayan na ang doctrina ni manalo ay hindi makatao!

    hindi man ako mapagbasa ng word of GOD .. i know na sinbi nya na ” iligtas mo ang katabi mo bago ang sarili mo”

    ipagpalagy na tin na ang INC ako at ung katabi ko katoliko?

    kung mahuhulog si Katoliko sa bangin at ang tanging kasama nya lang sa lugar na yun ay isang iglesia.. aasa ka ba na ililigtas ka nya? syempre hindi kc alam mong nicclaim nila na sila lang ang maliligtas ..

    sa tingin mo INC kung gaagwin ng katoliko sayo yun hindi sasama ang tingin mo sa kanya! yun ung ibg kong sabihin..

    if GOD wants us to save, Only GOD knows that.. you cannot judge his words after all.. right? panu kung hindi ka nya iligtas?

    kala ko ba kayong mga iglesia .. nabubuhay sa salita ng diyos?
    eh bkit nyo sinsabing kayo lang ang maliligtas?
    “MAKASARILI ang tawag jan”

    nasa salita ba ng DIYOS ang maging makasarili.. si GOD ba nagclaim na xa lang ang maliligtas ? no! he sacrifices despite of all heartaches that He gain from us! ryt?

    eto pa..bkit my mga sector INC bkit my audit kayo sa lahat ng perang nakukuha nyo sa mga tao.. bkit hindi na nagttrabaho ang mga ministro nyo? tingin nyo saan ila kinukuha ang pang araw araw na w na gastos n buong pamilya nila?
    “sa Iglesia ni cristo”

    ang iglesia ba tumutulong sa mahihirap?

    hindi man lahat ng pera ng katolikong tao ang nappunta sa pagtulong alam nmin na nakakatulong kame hindi lang sa mga kauri nming relihiyon kundi sa lahat ng taong nangangailangan ng tulong..

    kayo nappunta ang pondo nyo? saan? sa pagpapagawa ng bagong church para makalikom ng bagong pagkakakitaan…

    naniniwala ba kyong ang pakikipagrelasyon sa ibang relihiyon ay isang kasalanan?

    malaking kalokohan..
    my freedom ang tao kung sino ang mamahalin at magmamahal sa kanila…pero kung sarado ang utak mo sa maling paniniwala.. wala nang magagawa…

      Ang karaniwang kamalian ng mga kapatid nating mga protestante ay ang pagtatanong na may kasamang conclusion – ito po ay tinatawag na Fallacy of Assumption. Sa tanong sa itaas na “saan mababasa sa Biblia na dapat sambahin ang mga larawan?” ay isa sa mga halimbawa ng Fallacy of Assumption”. Dapat linawin natin na HINDI DOCTRINA NG SIMBAHANG KATOLIKO ANG PAGSAMBA (BILANG DIOS) SA MGA IMAHE O LARAWAN; narito po ang mga ebedensya:

      -Denzinger; The Sources of Catholic Dogma; Documents of the Roman Pontiffs and of the Councils; Council of Nicea II 787; Ecumenical VII (against the Iconoclasts)

      Definition of the Sacred Images and Tradition *; ACTION VII

      302 (I. Definition) . . . We, continuing in the regal path, and following the divinely inspired teaching of our Holy Fathers, and the tradition of the Catholic Church, for we know that this is of the Holy Spirit who certainly dwells in it, define in all certitude and diligence that as the figure of the honored and life-giving Cross, so the venerable and holy images, the ones from tinted materials and from marble as those from other material, must be suitably placed in the holy churches of God, both on sacred vessels and vestments, and on the walls and on the altars, at home and on the streets, namely such images of our Lord Jesus Christ, God and Savior, and of our undefiled lady, or holy Mother of God, and of the honorable angels, and, at the same time, of all the saints and of holy men. For, how much more frequently through the imaginal formation they are seen, so much more quickly are those who contemplate these, raised to the memory and desire of the originals of these, to kiss and to render honorable veneration to them, not however, to grant true latria according to our faith, which is proper to divine nature alone; but just as to the figure of the revered and life-giving Cross and to the holy gospels, and to the other sacred monuments, let an oblation of incense and lights be made to give honor to these as was the pious custom with the ancients. “For the honor of the image passes to the original”; * and he who shows reverence to the image, shows reverence to the substance of Him depicted in it.

      – Harmony Media, Inc.; 1995; P.O. Box 138; Gervais, OR 97026; Church History; “St. John Damascene (c. 675-749), monk and priest, was the great doctor of the Church of the period. His “Three Discourses On images” made the points that: (1) though God cannot be represented by an image, Christ, the Blessed Virgin, and the saints could be depicted with approximate fidelity; (2) it is licit to revere images, provided that the veneration transcends the material icon to the prototype; (3) it is profitable to revere images, which can instruct, inspire, and exercise a certain intercession with God; and (4) that to avoid error one ought to distinguish between strict worship paid to God alone, and veneration of a person or thing as related to God

      -Fr. M. Guzman; Catholic Catechism; 1995: #563 “It is right to show respect to the statues and pictures of Christ and of the saints, just as it is right to show respect to the images of those whom we honor or love on earth.”

      -Fr. M. Guzman; Catholic Catechism; 1995: #564 “We honor Christ and the saints when we pray before the crucifix, relics and sacred images because we honor the persons they represent; we adore Christ and venerate the saints.”

      -Fr. M. Guzman; Catholic Catechism; 1995: #565 “We do not pray to the crucifix or to the images and relics of the saints, but to the persons they represent.”

      -Atty. Teofilo Tumulak; Dili Ang Tanan; 1985; Page 113 “Hinoon ang idolatry (Exodo 20:3) nagapadayon, apan dili sabton nga ang mga Katolico nakasupak niini kay ang pag-ampo nila sa gilarawanan dili man ingon nga Dios.” (Datapuwat ang idolatry (Exo. 20:3)ay nagpapatuloy; peru hindi ibig sabihin na ang mga Katolico ay nakalabag nito dahil sa pagdadasal nila sa nilalarawan ng imahe (ng mga Santo) ay hindi bilang isang Dios.)

      Napatunayan napo natin na hindi sinasamba ng mga Katoiko ang mga larawan bilang Dios; kaya mali po ang tanong ng ating mga kapatid na protestante. Kung gayon tayo bang mga Katoliko ay hindi sumunod sa utos ng Dios sa Exo. 20:4-5? Mga kapatid sumunod po ang Katoliko sa utos na yan; eh kung sumunod ang mga Katoliko sa Exo. 20:4-5; eh bakit may mga larawan o emahi sa kanilang simbahan (marahil yan ang susunod na tanong ng ating mga kaibigan)???

      Dapat mo nating malaman na kung tayo ay magbabasa ng Biblia; hindi po natin dapat limitahan ang ating mga pananaw sa mga bagay na inaakala natin na tama. Tulad nalang sa argumentong ito:

      Bawal ang mga imahe (Exo. 20:4-5)

      Ang mga Katoliko ay may mga imahe

      Therefore; Ang mga imahe ng katoliko ay bawal

      Sa itaas ay ang halimbawa ng fallacy of generalization ng mga kapatid nating mga protestante dahil, ang Biblia bagaman ay nakasaad ng mga talata na bawal ang mga emahi; ay may roon ding mga nakasulat na utos ng Dios na pagpagawa ng mga imahi; narito po ang mga ebedinsya:

      Exo. 25:1, 18-22 (RSV) “The LORD said to Moses; 8 And you shall make two cherubim of gold; of hammered work shall you make them, on the two ends of the mercy seat. 19 Make one cherub on the one end, and one cherub on the other end; of one piece with the mercy seat shall you make the cherubim on its two ends. 20 The cherubim shall spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be. 21 And you shall put the mercy seat on the top of the ark; and in the ark you shall put the testimony that I shall give you. 22 There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak with you of all that I will give you in commandment for the people of Israel.”

      Ano ba ang mga cherubim? Ito po ay mga anghil; at utos ng Dios na magpagawa ng mga statwa ng mga anghil; narito po ang mga ebidensya:

      Exo. 25:18-22 (Living Bible) “Then make images of angels, using beaten gold, and place them at the two ends of the lid of the Ark. They shall be one piece with the mercy place, and shall have wings spread out above the gold lid. Install the lid upon the Ark, and the place within the Ark the tables of stone I shall give you. And I will meet with you there and talk with you from above the place of mercy between the cherubim; and the Ark will contain the laws of my covenant. There I will tell you my commandments for the people of Israel.” (Emphasize added)

      At saan pa ilalagay ang mga imahi ng mga anghil? Eh ang Biblia po ang ating papasagutin:

      2 Cron:3:1; 7-14 (RSV) “3:1Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where the LORD had appeared to David his father, at the place that David had appointed, on the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.” “3: 7-14 “So he lined the house with gold–its beams, its thresholds, its walls, and its doors; and he carved cherubim on the walls. And he made the most holy place; its length, corresponding to the breadth of the house, was twenty cubits, and its breadth was twenty cubits; he overlaid it with six hundred talents of fine gold. 9 The weight of the nails was one shekel* to fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold. In the most holy place he made two cherubim of wood* and overlaid* them with gold. 11 The wings of the cherubim together extended twenty cubits: one wing of the one, of five cubits, touched the wall of the house, and its other wing, of five cubits, touched the wing of the other cherub; 12 and of this cherub, one wing, of five cubits, touched the wall of the house, and the other wing, also of five cubits, was joined to the wing of the first cherub. 13 The wings of these cherubim extended twenty cubits; the cherubim* stood on their feet, facing the nave. 14 And he made the veil of blue and purple and crimson fabrics and fine linen, and worked cherubim on it.

      Ano po ang nakalagay sa Biblia??? Sa templo ng Dios ilalagay ang mga imahi ng mga anghil!…

      Tingnan po natin kung ano ang nakasaad sa ibang version ng Biblia:

      2 Cron. 3:7 (The Living Bible) “All the walls, beam, doors, and the thresholds throughout the Temple were plated with gold, with angels engrave on the walls.”

      2 Cron. 3:10 (The Living Bible) “Within the innermost, the Holy of Holies, Solomon placed two sculptured statues of angels, and plated them with gold.”

      APAKALINAW NA TAYONG MGA KATOLIKO AY SUMUSUNOD LAMANG SA BIBLICAL TEMPLE OF GOD SA OLD TESTAMENT!!!

      Eh, sumunod kaya ang mga protestante ditto?????????????????

      At tungkol po naman sa paratang na tayong mga Katoliko ay Binago raw po natin ang sampung utos ng Diyos… Abay napakalinaw na talagang walang alam itong mga kapatid nating mga protestante sa Biblia; dahil dalawa po ang nakasaad/version ng sampong utos ng Dios diyan sa Biblia. Ang isa po ay makikita sa Exo. 20:4-17 at ang isa naman ay makikita sa Deut. 5:6-21; at pakaalaman natin na tayong mga Katoliko ay sumunod sa Deut. 5:6-21 na version. At dapat rin nating tandaan na ang sampong utos ay walang insaktong talaan ng bilang o numbers kaya may pagkaka-iba ang 10 commandments ng mga protestante; sa Katoliko/Luteranismo version.

      Nasagutan po ang tanong at abangan po ang susunod na mga bahagi…….

      Salamat pos a inyong pagbasa…… Abangan po ang pangalawang bahagi….

    Tanong ko sa mga palagi na lang nagbabato ng certain issues sa CFD.

    To all INC. Kung totoo ang inyong religion, Bakit mismo ang leader niyo ay nang galing sa Catholics? Yun muna? Siguro kasi kaya niyo nasasabi na sobrang ayos ng religion niyo kasi? MR MANALO already knew lahat ng kamalian ng church. If you claim that your church is perfect? LET’s all laugh then? Yung mismong leader niyo nga hindi perfect e? And tanong ko din? Diba kaya siya gumawa ng bagong religion kasi ayaw niya sa catholics? Nagets niyo ba yung sentence na AYAW? Parang in the sense na ayaw na ng isang bata sa isang brand ng lollipop kaya gumawa siya ng sarili niyang lollipop? Hindi na kaialangang idefend ng cfd ang catholicism. Tanungin niyo na lang kung bakit lumipat yung LEADER niyo. :) Kasi diba nakita niya yung mali? So in short? nakita niyang mali si Jesus christ ganun ba yun? :D
