After the worship service held at the Philippine Arena, the members of the Church wanted to show their support to the family of Brother Eraño G. Manalo by holding a peaceful vigil in front of brother Angel Manalo’s residence, but due to the gridlock in NLEX, they were unable to do so. I have also received reports that large groups were not allowed by the Police authorities to enter Metro Manila because of the SONA the following day. But most of those who were able to come were apprehensive and worried that they will be charged by the Sanggunian members of going against the Church “Administration” which will result in their expulsion from the Church.
All members of the Church dread the thought of being expelled, because to us, it is equivalent to death sentence and worse. What with all the expulsions, left and right being imposed by the members of the Sanggunian, who will not be scared and intimidated? Although I have touched on this subject in the past and in my very recent blog, let me remind you of what is truly written in the Bible. The Bible says in I Cor. 5:13, “Remove the evil person from your group.” No doubt that the “evil person” expelled from the Church are also expelled in heaven as Christ Himself testified to in Matthew 18:18. We also believe that he who does not remain until the end will not be saved, instead, will suffer the eternal condemnation. Unfortunately, like what the false prophets did after the death of the apostles, the members of the Sanggunian began to distort the implementation of this doctrine to sow fear in the hearts of the faithful. Anyone accused of questioning the rampant corruption they commit will readily be punished and expelled, reminiscent of the dark ages when any person accused of heresy, was readily sentenced to die at the stake. Well, at least many of those who were sentenced to die undeniably went against the ruling faith during that time. But how about now?
Many of those who were expelled did not go against any of the doctrine of the Church. Many of them were officers (like the Vasquez family in Long Beach, Ca.), very active members and supporters of the Church until the time they were expelled. For what reason were they expelled? For asking questions about the corruptions they hear and sometimes witness being committed by the Sanggunian members today. Since when, and where in the Bible does it say that asking questions for the purpose of knowing the truth, thus, avoid weakening in the faith, became a grievous sin punishable by expulsion? As ministers of God(?) administering the Church, they are commanded and expected by Him to lovingly and patiently show their concern for His people. In Ezek. 34:16, God requires the leaders of His people “to look for those that are lost, bring back those that wander off, bandage those that are hurt, and heal those that are sick.” But sad to say, the only portion of this divine instruction that the Sanggunian members consistently and are so eager to execute is “to look for those that are lost.” They do it not to bring the lost back by explaining and proving to them that the alleged corruptions are not true, but to interrogate and intimidate them, then force them to admit their “guilt” to serve as basis for their expulsion. What these Sanggunian members are doing are obviously against the teachings of God. THEIR ACTIONS AND DECISIONS ARE NOT SANCTIONED BY GOD because His doctrine is crystal clear: “Remove the evil person from your group.”
“REMOVE THE EVIL PERSON FROM YOUR GROUP.” To ask question and look for an answer is not evil. Even King David asked questions to God as if he was blaming Him for his predicaments, but his questions were not counted against him by God. To point out and report the corruptions committed by the Sanggunian members is not evil in God’s sight. It is not an act of going against the Church Administration as the Sanggunian members allege and insist. Rather, it is an act of protecting and defending the Church and the Administration from ministers who are not serving Christ but their own belly. Ministers who are in high places and powerful, corrupting not only the finances of the Church but even the doctrines and rules taught and implemented in the Church from the time of Brother Felix Y. Manalo. Like the lying spies sent by Joshua to Jericho, these conniving ministers are not truthful to our beloved Executive Minister. They are trying to keep him in the dark by telling him that everything is alright when in fact they know that ministers and members of the Church are now heavy ladened and complaining because of the heavy yet unnecessary weight they continuously placed upon their shoulders such as selling tickets, t-shirts, and other forms of memorabilia. They tell our beloved leader that there are millions of people joining the Church when in reality those whom they claim are joining the Church were told to sign the R3-01 forms in exchange for goody bags and their number is far from millions. THESE ARE THE MINISTERS WHO ARE EVIL AND MUST BE REMOVED NOT ONLY FROM THEIR POSITIONS OF POWER BUT FROM THE CHURCH ITSELF. They are the true cause of the troubles being experienced by the Church today. If they truly love the Church Administration, then they should voluntarily step down from their position to restore peace in the Church and protect the Executive Minister. I, AE, will keep the promise I made before—like a hawk, I will keep my eyes on every step that you Sanggunian members take and will not rest exposing your corruptions until such a time that God stops me because the time is ripe for Him to punish the evil persons.
Here is what God wants the Sanggunian members to know:
“Do you rulers ever give a just decision? Do you judge everyone fairly? No! You think only of the evil you can do, and commit crimes of violence in the land.” Ps. 58:1-2
To the brethren oppressed by the Sanggunian members, may this prayer of a servant of God in distress inspire you to remain strong in the faith holding on to God’s power:
“Save me from my enemies, my God; protect me from those who attack me! Save me from those evil people; rescue me from those murderers! Look! They are waiting to kill me; cruel people are gathering against me. It is not because of any sin or wrong I have done … Rise, Lord God Almighty and come to my aid” Ps. 59:1-5. “O God, declare me innocent, and defend my cause against the ungodly; deliver me from lying and evil people!” Ps. 43:1.
Beloved brethren, I am not asking you to go against the Church Administration, I will not do that. But we need to, and let us not be scared to express to him through whatever peaceful way, that we are very much aware of, and many times are witnesses to the corruptions committed by the Sanggunian members led by brother Glicerio B. Santos Jr., his family, and his cohorts. Let us not allow them to oppress the family of Brother Eraño G. Manalo who wholeheartedly and unselfishly served the Church for almost half a century. We all love the Church and for this reason, we are willing to make sacrifices and are even ready to die for it. There may seem to be division now among ourselves, but with God’s help and mercy, after everything has been brought to open and the smoke screen has completely disappeared, unity will replace diversity, and understanding will prevail over misunderstanding. God bless the Church and the Administration!
