No, they have a horrible reputation of being a murderous cult. Here's a little info on it
Ecleo, Ruben Edera, December 09, 1934-December 20, 1987, a Filipino spiritual leader who founded the Philippine Benevolent Missionaries Association, Incorporated in 1965. He was born from a poor family in the Island of Cabilan (formerly Puyange), Dinagat, Surigao del Norte, in Northern Mindanao. At the age of 8 he started his mission as a transient healer-missioner using different personalities and travelled all over Mindanao Islands and in some parts of the Bisayan Islands. He learned the Aramaic language and taught a different and unique doctrine of a Christian, Hinduism and Akashic combinations. On the early parts of 60's He organized his first group of followers and called it the "First Thirteen" resembling the Twelve Apostles who first received His teachings and instructions. With the power He possessed and through the teachings He introduced to His followers He received the title "Divine Master" which is equivalent to the title of "Grand Master" or "High Priest" of other masonic or missionary groups. In 1965, He organized and established His association, the Philippine Benevolent Missionaries Association, Inc. and registered it to the Securities and Exchange Commission under the Registration No. 28042.
Through his excellent and magnanimous leadership, he was elected as Mayor of the Municipality of Dinagat and hold the record for having the longest term as mayor for more than 2 decades until his death in 1987. He was chosen as the Most Outstanding Mayor of the Philippines in 1985.
After His death the Association's leadership was bequeathed to his eldest son, Ruben Ecleo, Jr. A mausoleum at the top of the hill in Barangay Cuarenta, San Jose, Dinagat Island was built in His honor.
