A core teaching of the Iglesia ni Cristo (1914) is their doctrine that their present and past Executive Ministers, from Eduardo Manalo all the way back to Felix Manalo, is God’s Administration. This is truly a blasphemy towards God and His Son and has become the moving spirit on their members’ veneration and idolization of their present and past Executive Ministers. How unscriptural is their view towards their Executive Minister as being God’s Administration?
God’s Administration is the same Government prophesied to be placed on the shoulder of God’s Son, The Lord Jesus-Christ:
6 For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
It is the same Authority that The Christ Jesus received even while He was still on earth:
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
The Christ Jesus, having been made the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, reign with this Government or Authority of God. His reign with God’s Government or Authority has become the Kingdom of God that He preached and shared with all of His true disciples, His subordinate Kings and Lords. Thus, NOT JUST ONE PERSON could have God’s Administration (Government or Authority) at any given time. Otherwise, as one saying goes, "ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY."
