In a response to the expose’ of alleged death threats to the Manalo family, the head of Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) decided to expel his mother Tenny and brother Angel Manalo from the membership of the church.
INC Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo made the decision after Tenny ang Angel made the video late Wednesday, July 22 telling viewers that their lives “are in danger” and thus seeking for protection and prayers from the church members.
Eduardo is the eldest son of Tenny with the late Eraño “Ka Erdy” Manalo, and an older brother of Felix Nathaniel “Angel” Manalo.
“Masakit man sa loob ng Kapatid na Eduardo Manalo ay ipinasya nila na itiwalag yung mga lumilikha ng mga pagkakabaha-bahagi sa Iglesia. Kaya sa mga pagsambang isasagawa ng Iglesia ni Cristo, simula sa araw na ito ay ipapaalam iyon sa lahat ng kapatid,” said INC General Evangelist Bienvenido Santiago in a press conference held Thursday, July 23.
(While this is painful for Brother Eduardo Manalo, they decided to expel those creating divisions in the Church. In the worship services of the Iglesia ni Cristo starting today, we will be announcing this to our brethren.)
Santiago also denied the accusations of Tenny and Angel about death threats and abduction of some ministers as posted last night in a Youtube video.
