Dome Construction of The Iglesia Ni Cristo of The Manalos Dooms Commuters in Bocaue and Sta. Maria Bulacan

Manila, Philippines – Irritated commuters complained of the heavy traffic in some parts of Bulacan, particularly in Bocaue and Sta. Maria due to the construction of a $175 million dome of the Iglesia ni Cristo of Manalo, a wealthy religious cult in the Philippines whose central and grandiose palace is situated in Diliman, Quezon City.

Source: Wikimapia

A certain Elias Ibarra, a fanatic of the Manalos, even bragged that the contract was signed on August 4, 2011, “In Cash”.  According to him, their church owns everything and not like the Holy Trinity of the Roman Catholics, Protestants, and the Ang Dating Daan, who goes to the banks for mortgage loans.  

In an interview, commuters, who preferred not to be identified for fear of the Manalos retaliation, was angered because even Policemen and Barangay officials of Bocaue Sta. Maria Bulacan has not done anything to solve the traffic problem which could last for 30 months or more, the allotted period of time to finish the construction of dome.

According to a commuter, it is obvious that the Manalos for sure, have paid “padulas” or grease money as they usually do, to public officials or authorities of the place so that this another grandiose dome, can be constructed in Bulacan.

Sources said that, officials of the Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corporation, a Korean builders and the leader of the Iglesia ni Cristo ni Manalo entered into a contract for the construction of the $175 Million worth dome.

The construction of the dome commenced last August 18, 2011 in Sta. Maria, Bulacan.  Some members of the church of the Manalos sighed, on the thought of the huge amount to be spent in the construction of the dome by their church.  Where could such a huge amount of money have come from?

The Vice-Chairman of Hanwha, Mr. Kim Hyun-chung and Eduardo Manalo were both present during the groundbreaking ceremony.  The dome is said to have a capacity of 50,000 seats and its roof will be 36,000 square meters.  According to the Korean builders, the dome’s construction would last for over 30 months or to be finished until early 2014.

    i just wonder why the author hated the INC much?

    its clear in his bias reporting.

    Is that jealousy? ofcourse.

    beside spreading lies and wrong infos, he is uneducated since calling the church as cult, meaning he do not know how to respect. pity on the author.

    may god have mercy on your soul

    Thanks readme.

    You may be hurt because you’re a supporter of the INCM too. I understand your feelings but for your information, straight and factual news may sound bias but mind you, it’s not, if it’s the truth. Indeed, TRUTH HURTS.

    Besides, how can I be jealous? Even if they gain the whole wide world but lose their souls, they are nothing.

    Go, see it for yourself and make research. I cannot just shut my pen if some people out there is affected.

    Well, you’re still entitled to your own opinion and belief, as much as I am also entitled to air mine.

    Thanks for reading my article, may God enlighten your mind more.

    CEMANES,

    sorry but ive never hurt by the LIES and dumb observation of NONMEMBERS of the INC…

    about the link, only DUMB people will really made it as a “source” by quoting anti-INC articles. I will believe you if you will quote these alleged “TRUTH” in my blog. Even just a phrase. Because all the TRUTHS in the INC are posted there.

    http://www.readmeinc.blogspot.com

    Why you are jealous?

    Is it not obvious?

    is it normal for you to make rude name calling to other religions? if that so then you really are not EDUCATED. Do you just create this article just to attack the church?

    readers KNOWS the answer.

    they are not so DUMB like someone here is.

    traffic is normal when a construction is happening, what is not normal or ABNORMAL here is complaining about it.

    thanks also for having time on reading on my comments.

    FYI readme,

    Who’s fond of giving rude name calling? Is it not your Iglesia ni Cristo of Manalo (INCM)? Try listening to your pastors on how they persecute Bro. Eli, calling him all the negative, below the belt dirty words which are not supposedly fit to come out from the mouth of your pastors.

    Your unusual and negative reaction to the word “cult” could be a manifestation that you do not really understand the definition of the word.

    For your information, according to Merriam Webster dictionary, a “cult” is a formal religious veneration or worship or a system of religious beliefs and rituals usually by a small group of people characterized by such devotion.

    Now, don’t you know that your INCM fits in to that definition? Is it not true that INCM is a religious organization with a system of worship or belief FAR DIFFERENT from that of the Members Church of God International (MCGI)?

    Is it not also true that your INCM fits in to the definition of a SMALL GROUP of people characterized by devotion BUT the smallness in number of their membership is just camouflaged by their big buildings and grandiose edifices?

    To the writer,

    Stop on commenting badly about our religion you don’t have the right’s, if you don’t care about us, about our feelings WE DON’T NEED YOUR NEGATIVE THINKING! The intention of this project is not only for the members of INC its clearly noted that it is open FOR ALL.I recomended you to visit one of our churches to listen a bible study so your mind be more knowledgeable about out religion and your mind be at peace. may our almighty god touch your mind and soul for you to realize everything you done. may i correct you its IGLESIA NI CRISTO NOT iglesia ni manalo…. IM PROUD I AM IGLESIA NI CRISTO, GODBLESS YOU!

    You are one bitter Ampalaya! Crab Mentality has no cure and medicine…

    Why can’t you be happy that the Iglesia Ni Cristo is building a world-class facility for the Philippines that even the government can’t afford to build?! Don’t you have a nice and positive report about it or you’re just trying to oppress this religion? INC is a “cult”? Define religion and cult and please check or consult encyclopedia and dictionary para hindi ka nagiging mangmang, utak talangka ka talaga….GROW UP!! Magsuri sa Iglesia Ni Cristo ng hindi ka nagmumukhang bobo!!

    Sa pananalita mo pa lang, nagpapatunay na isa kang ADD, no wonder, tinawag mong Iglesia Ni Cristo ni Manalo ang Iglesia Ni Cristo. Ipinapakita lang sa artikulo mo kung gaano ka kainggit sa INC at kung gaano ka hunghang at kamangmang sa relihiyong nilalait mo. UTAK TALANGKA!! Ang samahang Ang Dating Daan (ADD), at ang mga taong katulad mo ang siyang dahilan bakit kung minsan ay ikinahihiya kong maging isang Pilipino. UTAK TALANGKA!!

    To All who were hurt by this article,

    “Truth really hurts.”

    I suggest, you take this constructively. During the time this was written, commuters really experienced inconvenience in their travel.

    At least, the attention of those concerned were called to take necessary and appropriate action to minimize giving burden to travellers.

    ung pinaka bago ngayon ay kailangan ng $1,000,000 ni Bro Eli para sa bayarin ng satellite broadcast…

    ung ASOP kumita ng Todo dahil ung mga Ticket ay pwersahang ibinenta sa mga Miyembro, kahit taga mindanao hanggang apari ay binentahan ng sapilitan o konsinsyahan para hindi malugi…galing sa mga Miyembro ang pang premyo? kawawang mga Bulag na miyembro ng MCGI…

    Noong Sept 28,29, at 30… idinaos ng MCGI and kanilang PBK…

    ang isa sa mga Topic nila…

    “Ang Tanong na Hindi masagot ni Bro Eli pero Masasagot ng Bibliya”

    ang tanong na iyon ay kung saan nagmula ang Diyos…

    pansinin ang programa na nagpasikat sa kanila ay tinatawag na Dating Daan…Itannong mo kay Soriano Bibliya ang Saasagot…

    ngayon bakit nagkaroon ng ganyang topic? dahil ba sa Si Soriano lang ang Sumasagot ng lahat ng tanong at hindi talaga Galing sa Bibliya?

    ang tanong na Hindi nya Masagot ay Kung saan nanggaling o nagmula ang Diyos?

    Kaya sinabi rin ni Baklitang Soriano na Hinid daw Kumpleto ang Bibliya dahil hindi daw nakasulat kung saan nanggaling o pinagmulan ng Diyos…

    Oct 20, Pasalamat

    Topic:

    “Ang Sinalita ni Solomon na Hindi Kinasihan ng Diyos na pero kinasihang maisulat…”

    sa Topic na ito ay Kumpleto ang bibliya at Hindi nagkukulang… sinang ayunan pa ni Donya Luz Cruz…

    ngayon Kumpleto nga ba o Kulang sa Contradictions si Baklitang Soriano at Parroteng Daniel Rason ng Rason…

    To the Author,

    Before you start dishing out your haphazard observation and partial opinion, you might want to consider proofreading your article. Brush up on your subject and verb agreement as your abuse of the English language is mortifying beyond belief.

    I don’t know which is more amusing, your abundant insecurity or your syntactically incorrect sentences. In any case, it would be in your best interest to stick to something you’re actually good at, writing isn’t one of them (evidently).

    Ang mga hindi matuwid ay hindi magmamana ng paghahari ng Diyos. Hindi ba ninyo alam iyan? Huwag kayong magpadaya. Ang mga nakikiapid, ang mga sumasamba sa diyos-diyosan, ang mga mangangalunya, ang mga bakla, ang mga gumagamit sa kapwa lalaki ay hindi magmamana ng paghahari ng Diyos.
