And the INC said they were spared from the earthquake...

A shoutout to Ric Anthony Reyes for the photos of the cracked chapels, ala GULP style.  :)


Because they are the "true" religion, as they reasoned.


Cracks in the Manalo Starship Enterprise are obvious.

One of the rocket ships lost its antenna.  Guess the "true religion" insurance policy failed, no?

And my favorite one of all...

Crash landed even before it could leave Planet Earth.

"Houston we have a problem"
"Kapatid, nasa Commonwealth ang homebase!"

PS:  This is no joke.  INC ministers preach that come Judgment Day, salvation will be in their chapels and these chapels with the "saved"  INC members will be transported to heaven during the Rapture.

Yup.  Seriously.

It's in their own Bible....unpublished.


  1. Lesson learned for both religious: Hire a good structural engineer.

  2. The first two pictures are the photos of INC church here in Cebu City. Actually, the INC church here in Cebu City has 4 antennas. Nabali yung tatlong antenna (yung dalawang antenna ay nasa likod, hindi lang makita sa picture), yung isang antenna sa right side ay may crack sa gitna, kaya kung titingnan mo sa picture, inaayos nila yun.

    But INC's neighboring Catholic Church - THE REDEMPTORIST CHURCH (Our Mother of Perpetual Help Church) which is Cebu's equivalent to the BACLARAN CHURCH in Manila has no damage. Nagsimba po ako doon last Wednesday, wala po akong nakitang cracks. Yung Redemptorist Church ay nasa likod ng INC church, just a little behind to the right side, mga 2 to 3 blocks away from the INC church.

    There are so many Catholic churches here in Cebu City na wala pong damage or cracks. Ang na highlight lang po ay yung Sto. Niño Church dahil yun po ang pinakasikat.

    1. Sorry, Ric. Someone sent it to me and claimed it is theirs. I'll put your name on the post.

  4. True Catholics do not engage in a debate with the aim of winning that debate. We do not engage in it anymore because we are not insecure with our Church. We enter in these conversations because of charity, with hopes of letting the other person embrace their salvation, and not to score some imaginary points.

    So don't be angry and answer back when people bash your Church. Remember, it was in persecution that our Church flourished.


    may reply na sila. I'm not a member of INC, btw :D

  8. The Inquisition was an ecclesiastical court and process of the Roman Catholic Church setup for the purpose towards the discovery and punishment of heresy which wielded immense power and brutality in medieval and early modern times. The Inquisitions function was principally assembled to repress all heretics of rights, depriving them of their estate and assets which became subject to the ownership of the Catholic treasury, with each relentlessly sought to destroy anyone who spoke, or even thought differently to the Catholic Church. This system for close to over six centuries became the legal framework throughout most of Europe that orchestrated one of the most confound religious orders in the course of mankind.

    Inquisition Procedure
    At root the word Inquisition signifies as little of evil as the primitive "inquire," or the adjective inquisitive, but as words, like persons, lose their characters by bad associations, so "Inquisition" has become infamous and hideous as the name of an executive department of the Roman Catholic Church.

    All crimes and all vices are contained in this one word Inquisition. Murder, robbery, arson, outrage, torture, treachery, deceit, hypocrisy, cupidity, holiness. No other word in all languages is so hateful as this one that owes its abhorrent preeminence to its association with the Roman Church.

    In the Dark Side of Christian History, Helen Ellerbe describes how the same men who had been both prosecutor and judge decided upon the sentence of heresy. Once an Inquisitor arrived to a heresy-ridden district, a 40 day period of grace was usually allowed to all who wished to confess by recanting their faith.

    After this period of grace had finished, the inhabitants were then summoned to appear before the Inquisitor. Citizens accused of heresy would be woken in the dead of night, ordered, if not gagged, and then escorted to the holy edifice, or Inquisition prison for closer examination.
