Fear for One's Life Vs. the Dark Secrets of Others
It is natural for man to fear what could snuff out his life and those of his loved ones. It is also natural that one cannot live long hiding secrets of wrongdoing, especially the dark secrets of others.
God placed the natural feelings of man and his proclivity, and that is why we can often tell what man would do in this and that situation.
Proclivity is defined as a tendency to choose or do something, an inclination or predisposition toward a particular thing. Man would ordinarily act the same when one’s life is in danger. It is the same for having to keep the secrets of wrongdoing.
The thought in the clause "ordinary promptings of man" which is deeply enshrined in the fabric of Philippine Constitution and other nations jive perfectly with the thought of the clause, "common sense".
Recent developments within the confines of the INC prove the power and the truthfulness of God's words.
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
No human wisdom and technology can perfectly discern the intents of the heart but it is revealed by the powerful word of God. Secrets and things hidden cannot remain hidden, the Bible declares.
Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
There are people who keep matters in secret and "guard" them to the extent of committing evil and unlawful acts just to keep their secrets hidden! But what is human's ordinary prompting is to show every good and every perceived good to people and to hide sins and faults!
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
Surely, there are people who will never admit faults publicly, and there are those who are barefaced enough and shameless enough to do every measure even the brazen, unblushing, and stupid just to hide the evil he is doing.
The INC leadership deny that they have abducted and illegally detained members and ministers who came out in the open to reveal the most guarded secrets of the "cult” which revelation started from the blog iglesianicristosilentnomore at Wordpress that became https://iglesianicristoneverkeepsilent.wordpress.com
Why are ministers and members of the INC coming out in the open especially in the social media declaring the same thing? "Our lives are in danger,” they all claim. It is within the "ordinary promptings of man" to fear for one’s life and the lives of his loved ones.
Logic dictates that these ministers, expelled for their revelations, know what is happening within the realm of their organization! The gravity is that even the siblings and the mother of the leader of this religious group confessed publicly that their lives are in danger. The same is true for those that were abducted in their church. (NOTE: I used the term "religious group," but in my mind, such is not a religious group!)
Here are Angel Manalo and Tenny Manalo, brother and mother respectively of Eduardo Manalo, the incumbent Executive Minister of the INC.
There is a pattern of harassment that these ministers and members expelled from the INC are revealing when they exposed “corruptions” and other wrong doings of the administrative body of their church!
First, invention of criminal cases against them.
Second, destroying their reputation.
Third, using the arm of the law, which by the influence of their church can be assessed as both quick and slow against and in favor of the complainant depending on who was complaining. Let me explain.
The same thing happened to me. A case of rape was filed by the INC against me sometime in 2005. From the provincial prosecutor came a request that I be placed in the "watch list" immediately. The Bureau of Immigration granted it quick.
According to my lawyer, the former Solicitor General Frank Chavez, the provincial prosecutor has no constitutional right to request that I be put in the Immigrations’ Watch List. When Atty. Frank Chavez filed a petition against the order putting me in the Watch List, the same officer immediately lifted the order.
That act of putting me in the Watch List by common sense and logic can be inferred to as illegal! After all, I should be presumed innocent in the eyes of the law until proven otherwise in the proper venue!
News circulating from the group calling themselves INC Defenders claim that the leader of the INC and the Sanggunian went out of the country already. Can this mean a preparation for what is expected to happen?
My prayer is that the hand of the law be allowed to move freely within the bounds of the constitution.
Another recent development that may logically be a support to the claim that there are really illegal detentions happening is this. The death of the driver of Angel Manalo inside the compound of the INC who was not given the right to be attended to by a doctor or be placed under medical supervision in a hospital is to my opinion a glaring evidence!
Here’s Samson announcing Arellano's death
This is the Report about Arrellano's death
Even lawyer Trixie Angeles was not allowed to enter to see the condition of the people allegedly being held against their will.

If I were a judge, "ordinary promptings of man,” and logic and common sense would guide me in determining the guilt of the accused.
If I were a prosecutor, these things are enough for me to see a prima facie evidence of the case filed against them by not only two or three witnesses (The number is biblically binding) but many.
He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
II CORINTHIANS 13:1
This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

We can always depend on the words of God. Even the courts can be helped with their decisions through understanding the ordinary promptings of man.
More analysis to come, God willing.
