Here’s the english version of the open letter addressed to Eduardo Manalo and his family that I found on this site:
OPEN LETTER TO THE EXECUTIVE MINISTER OF THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO AND HIS FAMILY
June 12, 2013
Brother Eduardo, Sis Tenny and children, dear beloved brethren:
We your fellow brethren inside the Iglesia Ni Cristo are going
through sorrow and confusion regarding news that is spreading around
that your family has had division for 5 years since the death of Bro.
The news is spreading that the division of the family is because the
current administration is doing things against the teachings of God and
that there is corruption going on in the administration led by Bro
Hopefully our open letter to you will not go unnoticed. We have been
writing constantly for a long time but we were informed that our letters
aren’t reaching you. That is why we are using this internet as a medium
to reach you because we no longer see you at any activities of the
Church. Is it true that Ka Eduardo is forbidding you to be at these
events because you don’t agree with the corruption happening in the
IT’S SO HARD TO CELEBRATE THE CENTENNIAL OF THE CHURCH IF THESE
QUESTIONS LINGER IN OUR MINDS. WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN OF KA ERDY? WHERE
IS KA TENNY? IS IT TRUE THAT KA EDUARDO IS GOING AGAINST THE TEACHINGS
OF GOD? IS IT TRUE THAT CORRUPTION IS RAMPANT IN HIS ADMINISTRATION?
IF THIS IS TRUE, WE FIND THIS VERY DISTURBING THAT THIS KIND OF
SCANDAL HAS NEVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH SINCE ITS
REESTABLISHMENT BY KA FELIX MANALO TIL THE TIME OF KA ERDY UNTIL NOW.
HOPE YOU DON’T ALLOW THIS CORRUPTION TO GO ON IN YOUR ADMINISTRATION, OUR BELOVED BRO. EDUARDO.
WE DON’T SEE YOUR MOTHER AND SIBLINGS WHICH IS WHY WE ARE SO PUZZLED
AT YOUR ACTIONS AND FIND IT OBVIOUS THAT YOU ARE AVOIDING THEM.
It is with a heavy heart and we find it difficult to truly celebrate
the Centennial and the Church’s achievements when we hear about the deep
division happening in the family. We would be truly happy to see you
united and in harmony because we are hoping you are an example of what a
Christian family should be. We are affected by this division because we
are supposed to be one and united in the Church.
It truly hurts us to read about the division between you and your wife are having against your mother and siblings.
More then anything, it truly disappoints us to hear about the
corruption happening in the Church that is being lead by Glicerio
Santos, his son Sergie Santos, and a number of high ranking ministers
that involve the Church funds and the monetary transactions involving
the projects of the Church.
We hope you don’t disregard this message of ours. It has been the
center of discussion and many brethren are talking about this amongst
themselves from different countries and many provinces in the
Philippines. If you don’t address this issue, scandal in the church will
grow and will bear more talking and division among the brethren
especially when we see the corruption growing and the obvious division
in your family.
We would like to hear you explain yourself regarding these issues
because they deeply sadden and worry us brethren. If this is not true,
we want to hear your voice regarding this matter through a Church
circular. If we hear that these issues are resolved, it will reassure us
and strengthen us because the troubling news weakens our faith. We are
hoping that if this isn’t true that we will see your family united
helping one another serve God. Eversince Ka Erdy passed away we haven’t
seen you all together like when he was alive.
Hopefully you understand why we can’t help but be affected by this
situation because the family of our leader serves as an inspiration to
our families since the time of Bro Felix till the time of Ka Erdy. We
aren’t used to hearing such things that the family of our leader is in
disarray. From a common point of view, this can be classified as part of
your personal life and that we have no business in it since we are not
members of your family. But, any leader of an institution, most
especially a leader of the true Church, the private life isn’t private .
It is important to us that we see you practice what you preach. How can
someone teach about not stealing if he himself is stealing? That’s why
the question remains in our minds is does a true messenger of God and
Executive Minister ever shown that his family all divided? Is there a
verse in the bible how to distinguish a true leader or a false teacher?
What happened to those Executive Ministers or leaders of God’s nation
that didn’t meet God’s expectations? Did God teach what would happen if
the Leader of God’s nation himself was the one to go against His
teachings and isn’t being a good example? What will the members of the
Church of Christ do if they see their very own Executive minister not
obeying even just one of the commandments of God? We remember what Ka
Erdy said in his speech during the 75th Anniversary of the Church in
front of millions of people. “The INC office is open.. and if anyone
sees any document selling the properties of the Church, then let’s
separate.” That’s how brave and transparent Ka Erdy was. Another angle
of Ka Erdy’s message is it’s possible that the church will fall into
division if the Executive Minister does something wrong. What will God
do if this happens? Do you think that disaccord in your family is a
private, separate matter that doesn’t have anything to do with the
performance of your duty to God? Isn’t it that when a Parent, ( a father
or mother) in a family has a duty in the church they are taken out of
their duty if they can’t lead their family properly? Isn’t it that one
quality of a church officer is to lead your family properly?
That’s why we have this open letter to you to put an end to all the
news going around because these issues confuse us. Aside from all the
news spreading around about these matters, we are also wondering why all
of KA Erdy’s children were removed from their duties in the church and
we don’t see them in your administration when they used to be some of
the most trusted of our Beloved Bro. Erano G. Manalo till the day he
To the wife of Ka Erdy, our beloved Ka Tenny: Why do we never see you
at any of the Church events? We never see you with our Executive
Minister? Is it true that your security was removed? Is it true that Ka
Babylynn, the wife of Ka Eduardo is persecuting you?
To all the children of Ka Erdy: Ka Angel Manalo, Ka Mark Manalo, Ka
Lottie Hemedez, Ka Eileen Alcantara, and all your families: Did you do
something wrong against Ka Eduardo? Is it true you aren’t united with
him and don’t agree with the way he is administering the Church?
To Ka Babylynn ( Ka Eduardo’s wife): Is it true that you keep
meddling in administering the Church? Is it true that you are the reason
why there is division among Ka Eduardo and his mother and siblings? Is
it true that you are now in charge of the Security Officials of the
Church? Is it true that you are resentful towards Ka Tenny and her
To Our Executive Minister:
You mentioned in your sermon in London that there are many people
talking bad about the Church. Is the schism in your family a part of
this? Did you take their security away? Why do we never see them at any
of the church events? Did they wrong you in any way that they were taken
out of their offices in the Church? For example, Ka Beth Manalo
replaced Ka Pilar. Is it true you took her out of her duty?
Is it true that you took Ka Bien Manalo out of his office as
Department Head of Engineering that was so trusted by Bro Erdy? Did he
wrong you in any way?
Is it true that you forbade your mother and siblings to visit the
grave site of Bro. Erdy? Is it true that you didn’t attend the funeral
of your Brother in law, the husband of Ka Lottie Hemedez? That you
didn’t send flowers and that you only found out he died when he was
already buried? Is it true that Ka Jun Santos and his son, Sergie stole
from the offerings of the church through the various projects of the
Is it true that you are ignoring the reports of corruption going on in the Church?
Is it true that when Bro Erdy was still alive but getting weak that
the Filipino American bem students formed a group called the STF because
they wanted to replace Ka Erdy and change some doctrines of the church?
and that this angered Ka Erdy and became the reason why he dismantled
the STF organization and expelled some of these STF members including
one of your son in law? Is it true that when you became the Executive
Minister that you brought back the STF organization and all the BEM
students who were expelled?
Our Beloved Brethren,
All these questions were formed from all the things we been reading
concerning the current situation of the Administration lead by Bro.
Eduardo V. Manalo. We have never experienced this from the time of the
Messenger, to the time of Ka Erdy, which is why we are very concerned
about the things we are hearing. What is clear to us is that Ka Tenny
and her children are not at any of the Church events. Aside from this,
we don’t know the truth of the stories circulating.
Hopefully, you don’t allow this confusion to remain regarding these
matters. Please don’t allow our minds to be confused and be filled with
worry and sadness. We are hoping you strengthen us and make this sadness
go away from the rumors we are hearing. It is hard to truly celebrate
the Centennial of the Church if the family of the Executive Minister is
It’s hard to set this issue aside when it comes to our service to the
Lord because the family of the Sugo and all the members of the church
are like one big family. If there is no unity in the the family, this
will not do any good to us members inside the Church and the division
this will cause. Most especially it’s not right that there are people
who are stealing and doing wrong things that are done by those who
belong in the Administration of the Church of Christ.
Hope you will understand that we used social media to communicate
this to you, for this is the only way we are sure that this message will
reach you. For a long time, we have been writing the Administration
concerning this matter and we are told that these letters are being
hidden from the Executive Minister and Ka Tenny’s family.
We also hope you understand we can not put our names for the sake of our membership in the Church and peace in our lives.
We pray that that our Lord God inspire the Executive Minister, the
family of His messenger, the whole administration of the INC, and all
the officers and members around the world. May God guide us all and may
He be with us until we die or until the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
It is hard to celebrate the Centennial if we don’t see your family
Beloved Bro. Eduardo, hope you can make the family united, in the way
the Sugo maintained unity and in the way KA Erdy maintained unity
within the family, hope you can continue that. If you allow this
division to continue in your administration, the Church will experience
division like how Ka Erdy forewarned when he was still alive.
Ka Eduardo, Ka Tenny, and children of Ka Erdy, we we are hoping you
don’t disregard this open letter. We will wait for your answer, and if
we don’t get our answer we will wait for the time we can ask you
We are having a hard time focusing on celebrating if we we are always
thinking of the division of the family because of all the corruption
happening in the Church.
We are having a hard time and this is causing us grief. Hope you
don’t disregard this letter because it will just worsen the division in
the Church and hope the worsening rumors stop. Hopefully this will be
the answer to the 99th anniversary of the church.
If this doesn’t reach you and our messages to you keep getting
hindered, we will make a way to find out the truth and put an end to the
anomalies if we find out that what we hear is true.
Thank you very much.
