Manila Philippines - I don't think it's a good idea for a cult leader not to use the last name of his father. It is like disowning your own father. I would have been angry if my kid will not use my last name. It is so disrespectful for a father. I cannot find any valid reason why Felix Manalo opted to use the last name of his mother MANALO instead of his father's YSAGUN. Again, it’s disrespectful and ungrateful to his father not to use the lawful last name YSAGUN. Is Felix YSAGUN Manalo an illegitimate son of his father? (Anak ba sa labas si Felix Manalo?) Certainly, with Iglesia Ni Cristo's main doctrine that all non-INC members will be going to hell, Felix Manalo's father and mother will anyway burn in hell so I think the last name of Felix Manalo does not mean anything that much to Felix.
(Note: It is a very well-known fact how Jose Rizal love his mother. But our National hero still used the last name of his father. Jose Rizal is a hero. Felix Manalo is a traitor who turns his back to his own flock. Read this. INC during the Japanese occupation Felix Manalo is not only a coward and disrespectful son but also a traitor to his flock.—this is strictly speaking of faith)
The catholic parents of Felix Manalo will go to hell.
(INC members are well-known catholic attackers in the internet)
Iglesia Ni Cristo cult also firmly believes that Felix Manalo is an angel. Too bad that Felix Manalo's parent died without knowing that their son is an angel.
Felix Manalo was a former catholic. Yes, the same catholic religion that the INC members whom they always attack. Felix also joined Methodist and then Seven Day Adventist until he realized that he has a 'calling' and established his own church and preached to everyone that he is actually the angel being prophesied by the Holy Scriptures. It is also INC's claim that there is no other true church aside from Iglesia Ni Cristo. All non-INC members will rot in hell, including all the people who lived before INC establishment on 1913. That is how naive these clowns are.
Manalo is a tagalog word for "to win". I don’t know about YSAGUN. If Felix Manalo decided to use his mother's last name because of marketing strategy for his cult, i don't care. With the INC's current status of wealth and power to the Manalo family, I seriously doubt that any offspring from Manalo family will refuse to use the last name Manalo. Inside the INC church, Manalo is already worthy of respect, glory and prestige among the cult members. After Felix Manalo's INC leadership, there are already 2 generations of INC head that bears the MANALO name. The Manalo dynasty inside INC is undeniable. Felix Manalo, Erano Manalo and now Eduardo Manalo. It's like a family business, a mafia style, organization clothing as a religious group.
Many atrocities have already been contributed by the INC cult to the Philippine society. Politically, Judicially and even in street crimes, Iglesia Ni Cristo followers are often involved with things such as murders, rape, sexual molestation and others. I seriously doubt that the correct Christian message is being discussed in the INC pulpit. Do you know or have any INC friends in your area? Well for me, I am not impressed on how INC behaves toward their fellowmen. INC cult members are often bitter and inconsiderate to others. INC members drink liquors, smoke cigarettes and others. As if they have no good changes you can see on their way of living. I am not impressed.
Philippines would have been better without Felix Manalo. Philippines would have been better without Iglesia Ni Cristo. The violent EDSA 3 would have not occurred if there's no Iglesia Ni Cristo. EDSA 3 has embarrassed the peaceful legacy of EDSA1 (btw, INC supported Marcos instead of Cory during the 1986 EDSA1) that is how menace the INC in the Philippine politics.
The death of Erano Manalo is a curse to Iglesia Ni Cristo.
And kamatayan ni Erano Manalo ay sumpa sa mga Iglesia Ni Criso.
