INC in prayer rally: ‘Si Hesus ang iisang Pangulo’

The Iglesia ni Cristo's 'grand evangelical mission' has no explicit references to President Aquino, but makes references to genuine leadership

MANILA, Philippines – The huge Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) gathering on Tuesday, February 28, had no explicit political references but included speeches citing disobedience to or non-allegiance with INC, as well as genuine leadership.

Ang gusto ng Diyos, nakasulat sa Bibliya: matipon ang tao at pailalim sa isang Pangulo – ang ating Panginoong Hesukristo,” an INC preacher said. (This is what God wants, according to the Bible: to gather all people and place them under one Head  – our Lord Jesus Christ.)

The INC’s Grand Evangelical Mission and Bible Exposition at the Quirino Grandstand was earlier seen to be a show of support for impeached Chief Justice Renato Corona, and of dismay toward President Benigno Aquino III.

The program, which started at 5:00 pm and ended at around 6:30 pm, had no high-profile politicians onstage. Earlier during the day, Corona declined the INC’s invitation to join the event. –
