    MANILA, Philippines — The massive Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) gathering at the Rizal Park Tuesday was not a political rally but purely a religious activity to spread the word of God.

    This was the assurance of INC leadership headed by its Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo, allaying speculations that the mammoth religious activity, known as the Grand Evangelical Mission, had political color and was held as a show of force to influence the ongoing impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato C. Corona.

    Over 3 million INC members and guests attended Tuesday's gathering, paralyzing major thoroughfares in Metro Manila.

    As early as midnight Monday, hundreds of buses carrying INC members from nearby provinces were already seen in the vicinity of Luneta.

    Most of those who joined in the Bible exposition at the Quirino Grandstand came from the local churches in Metro Manila, Southern Tagalog, and Central Luzon.

    This was the biggest Bible exposition this year of the influential religious group, held simultaneously in 18 selected cities and towns nationwide.

    The grand evangelical mission was held as the INC leadership declared 2012 as year of massive propagation of God's words in preparation for its centennial celebration on July 2014.

    Since last week, a circular signed by Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo was read during the INC's worship services, urging all members to invite non-INC members to attend the grand Bible exposition that started at 5 p.m.

    INC lay leader Moises Tolentino said the invitation was sent to all Filipinos, including government officials, justices, and legislators. "This is open to everybody as we want them to hear God's word about the salvation of mankind come Judgment Day," Tolentino said.
