IQ-04 On exposing erroneous doctrines by contrast BEING ALWAYS ON THE ROAD, it has become my hobby to tune in to your radio station (DZEM 954 khz) I must admit that I learn a lot from your programs especially with regards to various religious beliefs. In your attempt to be fair and objective, I also noticed that you quote from books written by authorities of other religions. However my wife once quipped why your speakers at times deal with the beliefs of other religions instead of just confining yourselves to the doctrines you uphold. Is that approach not against the Bible?

IQ-22 Is Adam's sin inherited? ROMANS   5:12   STATES    that  "through one man, sin entered the world/'  Am I correct in  my understanding that the "one man'' being  referred to is Adam? if so, is there any way we can be set free from  inheriting Adam's sin?  Are we and the next generations after us doomed to carry the curse of Adam's sin?   It just seems so unfair that I or my children have to pay the price for a mistake that was made by someone else.

IQ-107 No to superstition

I COME FROM a family of die-hard Catholics. I've noticed that superstitious beliefs have already been part of our life. It is as if no move was without a bearing from superstition . Let me give you a few examples. 
On attending a night vigil for a dead relative or a friend, babies up to five or six years of age are crossed over the coffin three times. This is administered by two adults who stand on opposite sides of the coffin. This the old folks say, is for the child not to be afraid of the dead and not to be visited by the spirit of the dead.
On New Year's eve, all lights must be turned on and all windows, doors, and drawers must be left open from midnight to one o'clock in the morning. This is for good fortune the whole year round.
We also have to turn the plates when someone leaves and the others are not yet finished eating; are not allowed to sweep at night, and many more. Do we really have to be governed by these beliefs?

IQ-117 Did God create Satan?

I HAVE READ your magazine and I find your teachings quite interesting and enlightening. I wrote  to ask these questions that have been bothering me for some time: What is the purpose of God in creating Satan? If God is a God of love, why did He create such an evil being?

spirit guides and channeling

I FREQUENTLY CONSULT psychics on important matters in my life.  I have proven many times that what they say is accurate, especially the things they say will happen in the future. I even had a chance to communicate with a dead relative through them.  But a friend told me to stop what I was doing. What can you advise me regarding psychics, spirit guides and channeling?

IQ-135 On psychics, seers,   fortunetellers and astrologers

I RECEIVED AN e-mail   saying that the recent terrorist bombings in the United States were foretold by the French astrologer, Nostradamus.   I  was so intrigued that I rented the video- tape, The Man Who Saw Tomorrow, which featured Nostradamus' different predictions. According to the videotape, Nostradamus had many other predictions that came true.
My questions are, what does the Bible say about people who predict the future, specifically seers, psychics, fortune-tellers, and astrologers like Nostradamus? Can they really tell the future? Should we believe them? And what if their predictions come true?

IQ-157 On putting other religions down

WE ARE SEVEN in the office adhering to different religions. During our break-time periods we often discuss religion and my attention was struck by what one of my co-workers said, that only the Iglesia ni Cristo members will be saved by Jesus Christ on Judgment Day. To satisfy my curiosity, I attended the worship services held on Thursdays by the Iglesia ni Cristo with the help of Virginia Sangre, one of my officemates who is a member of your religion. I was impressed at the way discipline and commitment were shown when I attended worship services at the local Church of the Iglesia ni Cristo at Pondol, Balamban, Cebu through the courtesy of Ms. Sangre’s family.

I asked for a copy of the PASUGO to satisfy my growing curiosity. I read the “Letters” column and this encouraged me to write this letter. My question is, “Why does the Iglesia ni Cristo claim that only its members will be saved on Judgment Day? Did not Christ say ‘not all people calling me Lord, Lord has the assurance to enter the kingdom of God’?”

Secondly, I appreciate the article of Mr. Pedrito B. Placio entitled, “Whom to believe and why” (May-June 1992) but what turned me off is his tendency to put his previous religion, which is Catholicism, down. This seems to be the standard procedure of the Iglesia ni Cristo—putting other religions down. I would like to stress that if we understand and respect each other and teach our doctrines without putting others down, then we altogether celebrate the word of God. He will be happy if we do this. And if we as the church of God share love, then all of us will be saved.
