"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

Evangelical Convert: Renée Lin: Protestants Distort Catholic beliefs

“We distort Catholic beliefs when we presented them so that they would be easier to refute. The classic examples of course, are the Protestant arguments against ‘Mary Worship’ or ‘works-righteousness.’ By raging against two Catholic doctrines which do not exist, Protestant apologists are able to turn their readers against a hypothetical evil, rather than addressing and refuting actual Catholic teachings.” Renèe Lin (Catholic convert, former Evangelical Protestant)
Equally guilty are the Iglesia ni Cristo Church founded by Felix Manalo in the Philippines always presenting distorted Catholic beliefs to its listeners which afterwards they can easily refute.
