Response to What they teach

 

I was a bored a few years ago, so I decided to count the number of times each of the three was mentioned during the sunday and midweek lesson. That was back when I actually listened to their mind-numbingly boring lessons. During the service, the Manalo's or the church administration were mentioned 32 times. God was mentioned 28 times. Christ was mentioned twice. I thought this likely to be an abberation, I mean it is a Christian Church, so certainly they should discuss Christ more than the Manalo's. So I did the same thing during the next service. The numbers were roughly the same. For about 4 consecutive sessions I did this. The numbers were staggering. After four consecutive sessions, it turned out they discussed the Manalo's nearly as much as they did Christ and God the father combined.

In the end, I am an Agnostic, so I don't really care that much anymore. I simply use this as a convenient place to vent my frustrations about this whacky church. But for a church that claims they are followers of Christ, they seem to give more importance to Felix/Erano/Eduardo than they do Christ. They certainly talk about the Manalo's more than anything or anyone else.
