Ephesians 5:11-14 (NKJV)

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.  For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.  But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.  Therefore He says:  

“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”


Antonio Ramirez Ebangelista is a pseudo name for a Minister working in a high-level secured Office in the Iglesia Ni Cristo Central Complex. He regularly writes articles aimed at exposing the alleged corruption inside the Church Administration perpetrated by high-ranking Ministers of the Sanggunian down to their equally-corrupt cohorts. He is perceived to be other persons or group of people, yet none have accurately identified who he really is. For the sake of anonymity, he will remain incognito to the rest of the world. Read the articles at your own risk, free will and conviction, then you decide. Who A.E. is, is not important, THE MESSAGE is. 


Welcome to this blogsite IGLESIA NI CRISTO: From the Edge. This site was born out of sadness. Sadness out of what is happening to my Religion.  I am a member of the Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo, in Filipino) I have been in the Church for many years, faithful and devoted, like so many. But in the last several months, there have been issues that have emerged which have caused many of my friends and loved ones to be expelled (excommunicated).

The Title, from the edge is referring to this author. I am not an outsider. I am in the Church. I am not a “Defender” as they call it. I am not in the middle of all this controversy. I am simply a member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo observing not from the center, but from the edge.

From the edge means, I am also at a precipice. I am on the edge of my faith, hanging on for my dear life and soul. I could easily fall off from the edge.


I will never compel anyone to act against the will of their heart, or against their own beliefs. But, I also hope I’m not condemned for acting in unity with my own heart. I believe in free will. I’m not here to change your mind. You have to determine for yourself if you want to change your own. I’m not here to force anyone to act. You have to determine for yourself which specific actions or inactions will define your life. 

This is my choice, which I believe is in alignment with the will of God. And if you don’t agree with me, I understand. I’ve been there.

However… If you’re ready to stand up to wolves and giants and accept the costs, let’s stand together, sing together, pray together and resist in peace.
