INC on Instagram posts 'The Message': 'If you’re not on my side, you’re the enemy'

INC Media News, the official Instagram account of, is apparently sending a strong message against the enemies of the church.

"This is war, and there is no neutral ground. If you’re not on my side, you’re the enemy; if you’re not helping, you’re making things worse," is a verse from Matthew 12:30.

Members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo have been holding vigils and rallies since Thursday, August 27. INC members flocked to the Department of Justice (DOJ) building in Padre Faura, Manila to protest justice secretary Leila de Lima's alleged meddling in the affairs of the church.

Leaders of the politically influential religious group reportedly accused de Lima of railroading an illegal detention case filed against them by expelled minister Isaias Samson Jr.

From Padre Faura, the protesters moved to EDSA to stage rallies that caused heavy traffic on Friday, August 28.

The INC apologized after receiving tons of criticisms from affected commuters, saying that they will not occupy the area permanently. The group is expected to hold activities in the historical site until September 4.
