So many articles to write, so little time…
Bro. Isaias T. Samson Jr., former Editor-in-Chief of Pasugo Magazine, and his wife Myrna, were expelled today, together with Bro. Jerson T. Samson Jr. and his family. Bro. Isaias and Jerson are brothers, both faithful and honest ministers, who have served the Church for a very long time. Bros. Radel V. Cortez and Matt Pareja led the house arrest and the interrogation. Reports have surfaced that the Samson brothers were both tortured and harmed physically in a futile attempt to get a confession.
Another minister, Bro. Arnel Tumanan, has been placed under house arrest. Bro. Arnel was General Secretary, a member of the Sanggunian, during the time of our late Executive Minister, Bro. Erano G. Manalo. He is loved and adored by brethren, including Bro. Erano himself. He is reported to have been kicked and abused during the interrogation led by Bro. Radel V. Cortez.
A truly sad day for the Church when ministers turns against other ministers so that their evil ways are not further exposed. Innocent after innocent ministers who have served the current and past Administrations with all faithfulness, who have given their lives and energy for the Church, are being punished because they are suspected of being me, or helping me, or sympathizing with the family of the late Bro. Erano G. Manalo. All three “crimes” are punishable by expulsion, and worse, DISAPPEARANCE OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH!
As some of you may know by now, 9 of our Ministers, Workers and other brethren suspected of being either me, Antonio Ebangelista, or are helping me, have been dragged from their homes and held captive on orders from the Central Office. The ministers were abducted by armed men, some of them, INC and some not, but all without conscience, animals who cannot differentiate right from wrong. They only see what they hope to gain, financially and otherwise, from this heinous act against men of God.
The 9 others were taken from Sorsogon, Meycauayan, Cebu, and elsewhere and now, believed to have been moved to Camp Karingal in Quezon City. One of the 9 has been identified as Bro. Boyet Menorca, son of the late Bro. Lowell Menorca, former Administrative Secretary of the Sanggunian during Ka Erano G. Manalo’s Administration.
How swiftly the wheels of injustice moved, in this case, only 1 day after the appointment of a new PNP chief in the person of Ricardo Marquez, whom the INC has lobbied hard for.
My heart cries out for these innocent co-ministers, workers and brethren who are being treated worse than criminals — tortured, interrogated, and held against their will. They were arrested without warrants, their homes violated, their properties trampled on, gadgets stolen, their families traumatized, their close friends interrogated and watched. There is no human law to protect them because that law has been bought – yes, suspension of justice in exchange for votes and INC support this coming election.
First, they had Lito Fruto abducted, again without warrant, and then charged with made-up lies. Bro. Lito was expelled in April 2015 for helping the family of Bro. Erano and because he was making noise about his intimate knowledge of corruption inside the Church. Bro. Lito is out on bail but there are orders from the Central Office to “put him away”. It will be no surprise if he sings to their tune due to fear for his safety and his life in no time.
Now these 10 innocent ministers are being made to endure torture and illegal detention inside a government facility. There are overt threats that other brethren suspected of assisting me, will be next.
These reports continue to come my way that after AE, the family of Bro. Erano G. Manalo will be the final target. They are now heavily guarded by men sent by the Sanggunian, not to protect them, but to make sure they won’t be able to escape. What they have planned for them, I cannot begin to describe, so allow me to quote the report in Tagalog.
“Nais po naming ipaalam sa lahat na dumating na po sa sukdulan ang pagpaplano ng kasamaan laban sa buong Iglesia. Ipinagmalasakit po ng isang kapamatok na nakasama sa isang natatanging pulong na ipaalam sa amin ang kasalukuyang plano at ito ay ang mga sumusunod:
Magpapakalat ang Sanggunian ng mga mali, katha at masasamang balita laban sa pamilya ng KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO. Kakasangkapanin nila sa pagpapakalat ng mga maling impormasyon ang lahat ng mga ministro, manggagawa at mga maytungkulin sa mga lokal sa buong mundo.
KAPAG NATIYAK NA PO NILA NA NALILITO NA ANG MGA KAPATID SA KUNG ANO AT KUNG SINO ANG PANINIWALAAN, AY KANILA NA PONG ISASAGAWA ANG SABAY-SABAY NA PAGDUKOT SA LAHAT NG MGA ANAK AT MGA APO NG KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO UPANG WALANG MAGIGING HADLANG SA MGA SUSUNOD PA NILANG MGA PLANO SA IGLESIA.
SA SIMULA, KANILANG DADALHIN ANG PAMILYA NG KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO SA ISANG LIBLIB NA LUGAR NA KANILANG INIHAHANDA NGAYON NGUNIT DOON AY UNTI-UNTI NILANG PABABAYAAN MAGING SA PAGKAIN HANGGANG SA SILA AY MAGKASAKIT AT MAMATAY.
KAPAG KANILA NANG NAIKULONG ANG LAHAT NG PAMILYA NG KAPATID NA ERANO G. MANALO AY ISUSUNOD NA NILA ANG KANILANG HULING PLANO SA IGLESIA”
To those in government who still have a conscience and to members of the press who still respect their obligation to report the truth, free of censorship, I pose this challenge. Help us in our fight for justice. Help us expose these outright violation of human rights. Help us stop these heinous acts. Help us reveal the corruption inside and outside the Iglesia ni Cristo. Insist on a true separation of Church and State.
BRETHREN, NOW, MORE THAN EVER, IS THE TIME TO UNITE. THE SANGGUNIAN HAS REACHED NEW LOWS. WHILE THE LAWS OF THIS LAND MAY BE BOUGHT, FROM THE LAW AND JUDGMENT OF GOD, NO ONE IS EXEMPT. LET US PRAY LIKE WE HAVE NEVER PRAYED BEFORE. PRAY FOR JUSTICE, FOR THE LIVES OF THESE INNOCENT MINISTERS, WORKERS AND OTHER BRETHREN TO BE SPARED, PRAY THAT OUR DEAR CHURCH MAY BE FREED FROM THE CLUTCHES OF THE EVIL SANGGUNIAN, AND PRAY FOR THE SAFETY OF BRO. ERANO’S FAMILY.
Brethren, if you are outraged by these events, you should be! PRAY FOR GOD’S HANDS TO STRIKE DOWN THE EVIL THAT LURKS IN HIS CHURCH! BEG FOR GOD’S MERCY TO DO IT NOW, TO SHOW HIS WRATH NOW, BEFORE THEIR PLAN TO PUT BRO. ERANO’S FAMILY AWAY MATERIALIZES. GOD HELP US ALL.
“They tried to bury us…they didn’t know we were seeds.”
