"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

Salvation Between two Symbols

In all Catholic Churches in every corner of the earth, a CROSS is hoisted high above its houses of worship (except in Islamic controlled states of Qatar, UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Kuwait).  All throughout our history, Christians and non-Christians knew that the CROSS symbolizes the CHRISTIAN FAITH and the CATHOLIC CHURCH (that explains why Muslims consider the cross as unlawful or haram and other quasi-Christian groups consider it the "sign of the beast" in the Book of Revelations.)

Why it is our SYMBOL?

"For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with the wisdom of human eloquence, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning.

"The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

The MEANING of the CROSS on top of our HOUSES of WORSHIP is the "POWER of GOD" because we are being SAVED by the POWER of this CROSS!

How about those who REFUSED to recognize the "Power of God" in the Cross of Christ and replaced it with pointed pillars or buildings with empty meanings?

How about this symbol?  Where can we find it in the Bible that this symbol is the "Power of God"?


See how they STRIPPED the CROSS and replaced the symbol with INC Church of Manalo's un-Biblical symbol?

Purchased former Catholic Church in La Motte, Iowa, USA by the Iglesia ni Cristo founded by Felix Manalo in 1914. (INC's symbol on top of the building was product of edition.)
So who are afraid (hated) of the CROSS of CHRIST?
  •  Islam and the Muslims (founded by Mohammad through a "revelation" in 610 AD). They do not believe in the power of the cross because they do not believe Jesus, as a prophet didn't die-- less on a humiliating death on a cross.
  • The Seventh-day Adventists (founded by Helen G. White in 1863 AD). They consider the cross as the "Sign of the Beast."
  •  The Iglesia ni Cristo (founde by Felix Manalo in 1914 AD). Felix Manalo copied this doctrine from Helen G. White for he was once a full fledged Minister of Gaud's church.
  • The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (Mormons-founded by Joseph Smith 1820AD) who considers the Bible less important.  Their official book is the Book of Mormon 

For us CATHOLICS who are saved, the Cross is the symbol of the Power of God! (1 Cor 1:17-18)

AMEN!

  2. "so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning..." I'm a member of the Church of Christ (Iglesia ni Cristo) and AS FAR AS I KNOW, we used the term "cross" to symbolize the burden and difficulty of the Lord Jesus Christ to purchase His church with His blood. I often hear during our worship services a certain song with lyrics, "Pasanin mo ang iyong KRUS at sundin ang Panginoon."

    ...And AS FAR AS I KNOW AS A MEMBER, the official seal of Iglesia ni Cristo has a BIBLICAL SYMBOL... Holy Spirit, Equality, Justice, Bible, The Lamb, Old and New Testament, The Light, etc.

    SO ABSOLUTELY, YOU ARE TELLING LIES. HOW COULD A DEFENDER DO THOSE KINDS OF LIES? SIMPLE... BY BEING A CATHOLIC. BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME... AND MAY GOD CALL YOU TO BELONG IN THE CHURCH :))
