The question regarding whether the support of the Iglesia Ni Cristo is in the side of the Chief Justice is now in the minds of many, after it was reported in the national TV that there are members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo who participated the rally outside the Supreme Court to show support to the Chief Justice. It was also caught in the camera that the woman who prayed last during the multi-religious prayers is a member of the Iglesia Ni Cristo and that there are people among those in the rally that answered in the prayer the same way the Iglesia Ni Cristo members participate in their prayers.
Is the Iglesia Ni Cristo supporting the Chief Justice?
My Answer: There was no statement from the Iglesia Ni Cristo yet about this. Everyone will know the official stand of the Iglesia Ni Cristo once it will release an official statement to answer the question.
If the Iglesia Ni Cristo is not supporting the Chief Justice then why there are brethren in the Church who participated the rally in support of the Chief Justice?
My Answer: We all know that there are many members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo who are practicing as lawyers. And one of these lawyers, Brother Serafin Cuevas, is acting as member of the defense panel of the Chief Justice. It is normal for the brethren in the Church, especially those who are practicing their profession as lawyers, even if there is no instruction from the Church administration, to support a fellow member of the Church. After all, we members of the Church of Christ or Iglesia Ni Cristo are taught to love one another inside the Church as brothers and sisters, help one another and support each other.
