"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

Were the Apostles Catholics?

Do you think this Iglesia ni Cristo member can fool us by his tricky question (extracted from my earlier post at INC Conversion story)?

this would be my second time to post and respond to this article.

question: were the apostles members of the apostolic roman catholic church?

My Response:

LAPU-LAPU is regarded by the Philippines as its FIRST FILIPINO HERO who resisted Spanish colonization and killed Portuguese voyager Ferdinand Magellan and his men in 1521 A.D.

The question is: Was LAPU-LAPU a FILIPINO?

But definitely, Jesus and the Apostles were NEVER members of the Iglesia ni Cristo founded by Felix Manalo in 1914 A.D.
