"The Christianity of history is not Protestantism. If ever there were a safe truth it is this, and Protestantism has ever felt it so; to be deep in history is to cease to be a Protestant." (-John Henry Newman, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine).

"Where the bishop is, there let the people gather; just as where ever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church". -St. Ignatius of Antioch (ca 110 AD)a martyr later thrown to the lions, wrote to a church in Asia Minor. Antioch was also where the term "Christian" was first used.

“But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

"This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic." -CCC 811

The Truth in the HOLY TRINITY

The Dogma of the Holy Trinity is this: There are three Persons in One God–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each Person is distinct from each other but there is only one God. Read the Catechism of the Catholic Church and not any other book, then refute the Catechism line by line. The Trinity is suggested by the baptismal formula taught by Christ:
“Go, therefore, 12 and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit.” (Mt 28:19)
The Father sends the Son (the Son is not the Father):
“Moreover, we have seen and testify that the Father sent his Son as savior of the world. 15 Whoever acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him and he in God.” (1 Jn 4:14-15 )
The Son promises the Holy Spirit (the other Advocate distinct from the Son):
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate 8 to be with you always, 17 the Spirit of truth, 9 which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it. (Jn 14:16-17)
“Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies that people utter will be forgiven them. 29 But whoever blasphemes against the holy Spirit 11 will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin.” (Mk 3:28-29)
