Many brethren are asking for an english translation of bro. Antonio Ebangelista’s accounts. Let us not be ignorant by disregarding the message. (Translation by: Sister Nina Agiluz)
Accounts of Bro. Antonio Ebangelista
My beloved brethren,
First of all, thank you to all who sent me private messages of thanks for the informations i shared in this thread. Many admired my courage in speaking up about the things I know, things they noticed themselves but could not speak of in fear of retribution. There were also those who were very angry accusing me of causing division by spreading rumors and wrong information, and they are forcing me to retract all that I have said. They told me to deactivate my account and some threatened me of expulsion.
For the information of all, I would like to express my thoughts and convey them according to my personal experience, what I witnessed and continue to witness because this is the reality the Church is facing now. Everything that I will communicate can be proven and many brethren are already aware of these but do not have yet the courage to ask about the many unusual things they are witnessing.
I am and have been a Minister of the gospel for a long time and through God’s grace and mercy I was a living witness to the life of brother Eraño Manalo and brother Eduardo V. Manalo. I am currently serving in one of the delicate departments inside the Central Office which is why I am aware of many private information especially regarding a few of those trusted by our beloved Executive Minister brother Eduardo Manalo.
This thread began when I received criticism regarding my comments on sister Lottie Hemedez’s post asking for assistance from the brethren because of the danger their family was facing from those always following and oppressing them. Because of this, sister Lottie was forced to break their silence after many years and for the first time reveal to the Church that the family of our brother Eraño Manalo are harassed, oppressed, abused and profaned. Here are a few things I want to clarify before I go on…
This has been going on for so long, even before the passing of bro. Eraño Manalo
They were in many ways oppressed after the passing of Ka Erdy.
The helpers were removed from the family of Ka Erdy.
The drivers and security personnels were removed.
Although the drivers, helpers and security wanted to stay and help the family, they were stripped of their financial assistance in order to force them to leave. Those who refused to leave were stripped of financial help, removed from their housing, and were threatened of expulsion so that they had no choice but to leave the family. This may be hard to believe but ask about those who were expelled last month. You will discover that those brethren were loyal to the famiky of Ka Erdy who wanted to remain in service for they have considered it a Duty in their life. Those who stood their ground were all expelled. To be continued…
Because there was no longer any Tulong/allowance for the family, where will they get sustenance of their daily needs such as food, gasoline and other necessities including that of their children….? They endured. They endured for a long time. They did not complain although they had to sell some of their belongings to provide for their necessities.
Many brethren know of the situation of Ka Erdy’s family and they wanted to assist in their primary needs, but when this was discovered, they were expelled by the Administration. Many families were expelled so that some had to secretly help in fear of the expulsion of their family.
If you are wondering why we do not see Brothers Marc and Angel officiating the worship services, this is because they have stopped attending the ministerial classes as they could no longer stomach the many years of oppression and callous indifference of District Ministers and Ministers in the Council. There was spreading news that Ka Marc and Ka Angel were suspended from being ministers. To suppress the issue instead of clearing it, brother Radel G. Cortez instructed all District Ministers to conduct a meeting of all Ministers and Workers to relay a message according to him, coming from the Executive Minister.
This is what they are doing to kill the issue:
They say that the siblings of Bro. Eduardo are the biggest headache of the Executive Minister, specifically Ka Angel and Ka Mark.
They say they are in opposition to the administration and they do not want to submit under bro. Eduardo.
They say that bro. Eduardo is only waiting for his brothers to approach him but they are not doing so.
They say that the brothers are roaming around spreading issues and asking for sympathy and pity.
They say that the Executive Minister ordered the ministers in the locals to call the District and ask for security if the siblings are seen attending the worship service, to contain them in a room after the service until all the brethren are gone. This is to prevent them from shaking hands with the brethren who are very eager to see them and talk to them, thus preventing brethren from gathering wrong information.
We were prohibited to entertain any conversation from the brothers of Ka Eduardo and if we receive any information about them such as news, phone call, text, etc., we must report it to the Administration for investigation of where the information came from and an R2-10 must be filled for the immediate expulsion of rumor mongers.
We were told not to believe in stories like these because it is impossible for Ka Eduardo not to provide care and shelter to his own family especially to his siblings and mother.
Although it was with conviction that our District Ministers conveyed this message, we felt the pain in their voice and their disbelief on how the situation of Ka Erdy’s family has gotten out of hand just because Ka Eduardo doesn’t want to talk to them to mend things and for the truth to come out. All of us who received the message kneeled down in prayer to plead for the change of heart and mind of the siblings of Ka Eduardo to put an end to the destruction of the Administration’s reputation. Almost all of us could not answer in agreement to the prayer because we could not believe the information we have received- we have seen the history of Ka Erdy’s children in the holy Ministry. But we have all been prohibited to discuss the instructions we received whether in secret or in the open.
To those who know Ka Angel, Ka Mark, Ka Lottie and their other siblings, and mommy Tenny as well, we know from the depths of our hearts that there is absolutely no truth to the things that they are accused of and not once did they speak anything against the Administration and the Church. They are a portrait of humility, submission, and love to the church and the Administration. If anyone was brought up in love and concern to the church, it is no other than the clan of the Sugo. They never wished for affluence, wealth, or power unlike the present extravagant and overly indulgent officials around the administration. They are drunk in power, money and luxury, with no regard to others, tarnishing the Ministry and the Church. Watch our programs in INCTV and incmedia.org and you will see whose face aside from our Executive Minister is often featured. Ka Glicerio Santos has extolled himself to the level of the Executive Minister. He is the one who summons the District Minister, he approves the release of Church funds, the purchase of properties, the selling of properties, making the lessons for the worship services, programs for Missionary and Edification, talking to politicians and placing brethren in government positions, Ministerial and Worker assignments, placing the ministers who are close to him in good destinations or in the Finance, while others are placed in remote and difficult destinations. He makes the call on delicate decisions for the Church without regard to its reputation. All these powers are under the “blanket authority” of Ka Jun Santos who is supposedly the GENERAL AUDITOR of the Church. But he has daringly overtook and controlled all Council and Departments just like an Executive Minister. He is branded by Ministers and Workers in Manila as “FEELING EXECUTIVE MINISTER”. The auditor of the Church should be checking whether the expenses of the Church are properly spent, he should not at anytime handle or approve money matters in the Church. This is why there is no longer a check and balance in the Church- the Auditor is now over all and everything in the Church.
Until now, many are wondering why the Philippine Arena is used for any kind of event such as concerts that are demoralizing the holiness of the Church known to have established it. How impressive it is to own the earth’s largest domed arena, but what now? We are only scrambling for events to say that it is being put to good use. In the hopes that funding will flow into the Philippine Arena, overseers have become sales agents selling tickets for arena events. This was never done in previous Church history. The cancelled appearance of Chris Brown during the New Year’s Eve Celebration was fully paid for by the Church. Many asked for a refund, especially non-members. Brethren who also asked for a refund were referred to their pastors who appealed to them to no longer request for a refund, instead to consider it as an offering. The employees at Central had an “automatic deduction” from their financial help/ Tulong whether they attended the event or not. Why is this not investigated? This has been turned into a “cover up” so that those who instigated it will remain in power. How about the news on TV regarding ka Glicerio Santos harboring one of the contractors of the Philippine Arena? You may research or Google about Ja Hoon Ku, who is wanted with a warrant of arrest from Korea due to the embezzlement of $200 Million from his Korean company. He was arrested by Police but he was released by Malacañang and was given to the custody and care of bro. Glicerio Santos Jr. This was broadcast on ABS-CBN. Many denounced the arm twisting done by Ka Jun Santos to Pnoy’s Government to set the charged criminal Ja Hoon free. This is an embarrassment on the members of the Church because it tainted the unblemished name of the Church. They forcibly killed off this issue so that Malacañang was unable to further comment about it. These are just a few of the very many incidents in the Church nowadays in which we can say that God is allowing them to fall into their own wrong doings so that their abuse of power and contempt disrespect to the Administration may be revealed.
If you know anyone working at the Receiving office of Central, you may ask them about the things I mentioned in this message. A few moths ago, brothers Angel and Mark went to Central. They were mobbed by employees, Ministers and Workers who were very happy to see them. They shook their hand, talked to them and asked how Ka Tenny was doing. Do you know that everyone who shook their hand and greeted them were summoned to the office of the HRD and were talked to by brother Rene Panuncillo who strictly prohibited them to shake the hand or talk to the brothers because they will be monitored by CCTV, and they were asked to write a statement that they will not do it again. Many of them cried when they found out that shaking the hands or greeting Ka Erdy’s children are prohibited and anyone who will do these will be disciplined, stripped of financial help, fired, or expelled as we see happening nowadays. Inquire about the recent expulsions, most if not all were related to having fellowship with Ka Erdy’s family. Ministers who were monitored on CCTV were interrogated and warned. Many of them were sent to far districts as a form of punishment. Is this how it’s going to be in the Church? Is the love of brotherhood only applicable to lay members of the Church and not to the family of Ka Erdy? And those who will show love to them are harassed and punished? Many officers at the receiving office of Central are witnesses to the many unusual changes in the Church nowadays but are very afraid to speak up or ask questions. They can only cry in silence about the disrespect and disdain they are witnessing toward the family of Ka Erdy.
You may be wondering why I am bringing up these issues here on fb when this is not our usual way of correcting what is wrong. That we should all just pray and follow the protocol in fixing whatever misunderstanding there is in the Church. My answer to you is this- Allow me clarify that the owner of this account who started this thread, sister Lottie Hemedez has been silent for so very long. Not once did she speak nor complain in their holy aim to preserve the reputation of the Church and the Administration. Although they have been oppressed for more than five years, they did not ask for any kind of help…EXCEPT NOW. They endured everything, and went through the process. They presented the problem to those concerned in an effort to resolve it. But how was a resolution possible when the people you consult with and ask for help are the same people that oppress you? You may say that it is impossible for the Administration not to offer them provision and simply neglect them. Their very own brother could not defend or assist them…?
How could Ka Eduardo help them when he hasn’t spoken to them for more than five years? How will Ka Eduardo speak to them if he has been angry at them because of false reports that he received from the primary Ministers he entrusted to care for them? How will Ka Eduardo not be angry with them when all he receives from the council is news that ruin their reputation? Why would they do this? Simply because the Ministers in the Council fear that Ka Eduardo V. Manalo would trust his brothers in different aspects of the church, and it would threaten their positions of power. And so to protect their personal interest, they so chose to destroy the family so that bro. Eduardo would ignore them completely while they remain in their powerful posts and continue in their indulgent ways.
Others are thinking, they are brothers and sisters in the flesh, why aren’t the siblings directly talking to Ka Eduardo and tell him everything that was done to them? That would have been nice if it was that easy, and if the situation they were in was that simple. How could they talk to Ka Eduardo when all means of communication between them and their beloved brother were cut off? They couldn’t call him directly and when they call through the Central Telephone Operator, the operators are prohibited to connect any calls directly to the Executive Minister. A wall as tall as the roof of their home was even built to make them feel like prisoners in their own compound. All the guards were changed so that they may not be permitted to enter the compound of Bro. Eduardo. They are slowly deprived of electricity and water and driven away from their home inside the Central compound. All letters and mail addressed to the family are Intercepted and screened at VCO as to who the senders are. Mommy Tenny is heart broken and became ill because she couldn’t even talk to her own son, while her son chose to listen to the charge, accusations and lies of other people against them.
Every other way of trying to communicate to Ka Eduardo has been done by the family of Ka Erdy. But it all came to nothing due to the strict constraint that they are not to directly contact the Executive Minister. They have tried to write, call, personally see him, wait for him at the gates, and every other means, but the people close to Ka Eduardo has a very close grip on him that the family failed in every way to speak to Ka Eduardo and let him know the real situation of his family.
For over five years now, bro. Eduardo has not spoken to his beloved mother, Mommy Tenny.
The family of Ka Erdy is truly going through severe tribulations. If you are in doubt, look at all the pictures and videos featuring our beloved Executive Minister since the death of Ka Erdy.
Search for even one photo wherein he is together with his brothers and sisters and his mother. You may also visit incmedia.org and look for pictures and videos of Ka Eduardo together with his siblings and Ka Tenny in any of the worship services he officiated here in the Philippines and abroad. You will not find a single one, unlike during the time when Ka Eraño Manalo was still alive, Ka Erdy took his family with him every time he officiated a worship service. He sheltered his brothers and sisters as well as his relatives.
We can no longer ignore the painful truth that deeply affects the Administration and the Church as a whole, and it is the fact that there is no peace in the very household of Ka Erdy.
Ordinary members if at all necessary and possible would give our lives for the sake of Ka Erdy’s family because they too have given their lives as a sacrifice in serving the Church. And so our respect and love for brother Eraño Manalo transcends to his whole household. It is indeed very painful to know that there is a burdensome problem in the midst of the family of the Sugo that has lingered for so long and hasn’t yet been resolved.
So when we see that for the first time ever, the family is asking for our assistance in prayer for the safety of their family, and when we see and hear that they are in danger and are oppressed and experiencing hardship, are we going to turn a blind eye?
Our doctrine states that we are to help our brethren who are in need especially if we are able and the bible states that the love of God does not abide in those who do not help their brother in need. If we are moved by our faith and love to help ordinary brethren, we should all the more help the family of the Sugo. However, because our goodwill we may experience oppression, persecution, and cruelty as experienced by those who ultimately paid with expulsion because of helping the family of Ka Erdy.
Many have sent me messages saying that they have been talked to by their resident ministers and were ordered to close their fb accounts. They were warned that if they didn’t obey it would cause them to be expelled. This is why many brethren are wondering why these strange things are happening in the Church today. The former way and channels of communication have changed, all our letters and communications are being blocked and many brethren who tried and are trying to get through the administration regarding this issue is being threatened and oppressed. Because of the failure of communicating through proper channels, the family of Ka Eraño had no choice but to take their case using Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. They no longer have a choice!
Instead of embracing transparency and clearing the issue, the Administration decided to prohibit all Ministers, Workers and their families to have social media accounts such as Fb, iG and Twitter. They instructed us to deactivate all social media accounts! What’s next? We fear that they may also prohibit us from using email, Viber, text messaging, cellphone and Internet to stop the influx of the number of brethren who now know the truth!
I am also aware that many of you reading this message are angry in disbelief of what you are seeing and your initial reaction may be to refuse to believe it, or you doubt my credibility as a witness or author and you may ask me to stop and just rely on prayer. All of us believe that the Church is true and will no longer apostatize and it will lead us to our salvation. True and perfect are the words of God and the doctrines we have faith in in the Church but remember that the Sugo and the bible also teach that we must not be guards who are silent, dogs who cannot bark in the face of danger or evil, and blind followers. There is a need for cleansing in the Church all the way from the Ministers very close to the Administration who unfortunately are abusive and are taking advantage of the goodness and trust of the Executive Minister. So if we are to keep silent, we will only allow the evil ones to continue with their evil schemes, and allow them to tarnish the Church and the Administration.
Brethren, let us all set a devotional prayer. Join us ministers who have been praying for five years now, everyday at 10:00 in the evening as a plea to our Lord God to reveal the perverse and lustful for gain among the Administration. Many of us ministers can no longer stomach the abuse that we are witnessing from our comrades in the Ministry. Never in the aim of fighting against or insubordination to the Executive Minister, but in ardent prayers and in doing what we can so that God will reveal those who are evil and are tarnishing the Ministry. God is merciful and they will be revealed and only then will the true cleansing be done in the Administration for the attainment of peace and tranquility in the nation of our Lord God in these last days.
Let us spread this information so that many more brethren will wake up and know the real truth and hinder those who are against the teachings of God and are abusive of their power.
My brethren, after you read these messages, may it be that we all pray for our Executive Minister, our beloved brother Eduardo V. Manalo, that he may be persuaded by our Lord God to examine closely what is happening in the Church and may he not easily believe perverse reports brought to him by the Ministers who surround him. It will make way to a complete cleansing within the Administration of the church, and the misunderstanding within his family may be remedied. May he once again open his heart and feelings, endear and draw near his mother, Ka Tenny and his brothers and sisters so that a very heavy burden may be removed from his heart due the long absence of love for his siblings. This way, the whole Church will once again perceive serenity and peace and will be unanimous in complete renewal of life that will result into its spotless stature, unblemished and pure. Only the Executive Minister can lead us in this cleansing and not the Council because they are the ones that need cleansing first, from their addiction to power and perverse gain. It is true that out most powerful weapon to realize this is prayer and the words of God that teach us that it is not enough to simply have faith, work or effort is also important for the good or according to the will of God. For the bible teaches that in the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead (James 2:17). May God move all the brethren toward a positive renewal and unanimity. May God help us all.
Your brother in Christ,
They tried to bury us…they didn’t know we were seeds.”
