  • Yakan: “nevertheless for us (incl.), there is only one God, he is our (incl.) Father and he created everything. He is the one who gave us (dual) life so that we (dual) could honor him/make him great as long as we (dual) live. And there is only one Leader of us (incl.), Isa Almasi. Everything was created by Almasi because of his authority from God and Almasi is the reason why we (incl.) are given life.” (Source: Yakan Back Translation)
  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “But in spite of this, as for us (incl.), we by contrast, know that our God is only one, and He is our Father who has created everything.

By means of Him, everything was created, and by means also of Him, we were given new life.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
  • Kankanaey: “we don’t believe it, because as for us by-contrast, there is only-one whom we acknowledge as God. He is our Father who created all that exists and we live to serve and worship/praise him. There is also only-one whom we acknowledge as Lord who is Jesu Cristo. He is the one whom-God -caused-to-create all that exists and through him, we have life that is forever.” (Source: Kankanaey Back Translation)
