Iglesia Ni Cristo Minister in California ‘Louie Cayabyab’ resigned from his post saying he could not force himself to read circulars expelling the wife and children of Bro. Erano G. Manalo and Bro. Isaias T. Samson Jr.
Here’s is the transcript of Louie Cayabyab’s resignation during service.
Beloved brethren, there are two circulars that are supposed to be read this morning. The first circular is about the expulsion, from the Church, of the wife and children of Bro. Erano G. Manalo. And another circular is the expulsion, from the Church of Bro. Isaias T. Samson Jr., the editor-in-chief — former editor-in-chief of The Pasugo. I decided, brethren, that I won’t read those circulars. You might be asking, “why?” Because in my heart, in my heart of hearts, I can’t take it. It is, it is just so so difficult to betray one’s heart. I know, I know the repercussion of this and i know what will be the consequence. I know that i will be stripped out of my duty. From now on, I will no longer be a minister, probably i will be expelled from the Church, but I will take it brothers and sisters. We admonish you to remain in the Church no matter what happens. So instead of reading the circular, I am — I take this opportunity to thank you. Oh, I cannot thank you enough, brethren here in Fremont for your love and kindness to me and my family. I would also like to thank all the locales that we have been assigned to: the locale of Washington D.C., Temple Hills, MD, Northern Virginia, VA, Baltimore, MD, Elizabeth, NJ, Central New Jersey, Staten Island, NY, Virginia Beach, VA, Livermore, Northern CA. Thank you brothers and sisters. We hope that time will come our paths will cross again. Have a good day to all.
