"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

Millions attended the Iglesia Ni Cristo Grand Bible Exposition in the Philippines

The media said, "Millions attended the Iglesia Ni Cristo Grand Bible Exposition in the Philippines" (Source: iReport/CNN)

But whose Bible did they use for their "Grand Bible Exposition"? Remember, the Iglesia of Manalo do not have a Bible version of their own.

In their desire to appear "Biblical" in their teachings, they couldn't help but relied on CATHOLIC (and other PROTESTANT) versions of the Bible! (History can prove the Bible is Catholic).

In their official magazine called PASUGO, the INC of Manalo stressed that the Catholic Church is not for Christ for for the devil.

PASUGO Agosto 1962, p. 9:
“Kaya ang tunay na anti-Cristo, ang mga Papa ng Iglesia Katolika Apostolika Romana. At ang tunay na ampon ng anti-Cristo ay ang mga Katoliko.”

PASUGO Oktubre 1956, p. 1:
“Ang Iglesia ni Cristo ay nagdaos ng pamamahayag sa Lunsod ng Davao. Nagsalita roon si Kapatid na Felix Manalo at ang kasama niyang mga Ministro. Ipinahayag doon ng mga nagsalita na ang Iglesia Katolika Romana ay hindi itinatag ni Cristo kundi itinatag ng Diablo."


PASUGO Disyembre 1965, p. 5:
“Kaninong Ministro kung ganyan ang mga Paring Katoliko? Mga Ministro ni Satanas na Diablo."

And yet admitted in the same official magazine that the Catholic Church was the original Church of Christ.

PASUGO Abril 1966, p. 46:
“Ang Iglesia Katolika na sa pasimula ay siyang Iglesia ni Cristo."

And to EXPOSE their HYPOCRISY, the CHURCH which they accused of being of the devil and founded by Satan was RESPONSIBLE in giving the ENTIRE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY with the SACRED SCRIPTURES.

At the council of TRENT in 1546, the CATHOLIC CHURCH solemnly defined the Canon of the Bible:

"The council follows the example of the orthodox Fathers and with the same sense of devotion and reverence with which it accepts and venerates all the books both of the Old and the New Testament, since one God is the author of both, it also accepts and venerates traditions concerned with faith and morals as having been received orally from Christ or inspired by the Holy Spirit and continuously preserved in the Catholic Church. It judged, however, that a list of the Sacred Books should be written into this decree so that no one may doubt which books the council accepts. The list is here given.

"The Old Testament: five books of Moses, that is, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy; Josua, Judges, Ruth, four books of Kings, two of Paralipomenon; the first book of Esdras and the second, which is called Nehemias; Tobias, Judith, Esther, Job, Dave's Psalter of one hundred and fifty psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, the Canticle of Canticles, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, Isaias, Jeremias with Baruch, Ezechiel, Daniel; the twelve minor prophets, that is Osee, Joel, Amos, Abdias, Jonas, Micheas, Nahum, Habacuc, Sophonias, Aggeus, Zacharias, Malachias; two books of Machabees, the first and the second.

"The New Testament: the four Gospels, according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; the Acts of the Apostles, written by The Evangelist Luke; fourteen epistles of the Apostle Paul: to the Romans, two to the Corinthians, to the Galatians, to the Ephesians, to the Philippians, to the Colossians, two to the Thessalonians, two to Timothy, to Titus, to Philemon, to the Hebrews; two epistles of the Apostle Peter, three of the Apostle John, one of the Apostles James, one of the Apostle Jude; and the Apocalypse of the Apostle John. Moreover, if anyone does not accept these books as sacred and canonical in their entirety, with all their parts, according to the text usually read in the Catholic Church and as they are in the ancient Latin Vulgate, but knowingly and willfully contemns the traditions previously mentioned: let him be anathema."

The CATHOLIC CHURCH defined that ONLY these books should be found in the Christian Canon of the Bible:

Old Testament
Genesis
Exodus
Leviticus
Numbers
Deuteronomy
Joshua
Judges
Ruth
1 Samuel
2 Samuel
1 Kings
2 Kings
1 Chronicles
2 Chronicles
Ezra
Nehemiah
Tobit
Judith
Esther
1 Maccabees
2 Maccabees
Job
Psalms
Proverbs
Ecclesiastes
Song of Songs
Wisdom
Ecclesiasticus
Isaiah
Jeremiah
Lamentations
Baruch
Ezekiel
Daniel
Hosea
Joel
Amos
Obadiah
Jonah
Micah
Nahum
Habakkuk
Zephaniah
Haggai
Zechariah
Malachi

New Testament

Matthew
Mark
Luke
John
Acts
Romans
1 Corinthians
2 Corinthians
Galatians
Ephesians
Philippians
Colossians
1 Thessalonians
2 Thessalonians
1 Timothy
2 Timothy
Titus
Philemon
Hebrews
James
1 Peter
2 Peter
1 John
2 John
3 John
Jude
Revelation

For the first 1500 years of Christianity, these books were accepted and recognized canons at the Council of Trent (1545-1563) reaffirmd the Canon as approved at the Synod of Rome (382 AD), the local Councils of Hippo (393 AD) and Carthage (397 AD), and the Canon in the Latin Vulgate translation (420 AD) as the HOLY BIBLE.

Until the Protestant Reformation, these books were REMOVED from the present Canon: Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Esther 10:4-16-16:24 and Daniel 3:24-90 and 13:1-14:42.

So whose BIBLE the IGLESIA NI CRISTO used in their "Bible Exposition"?

It's the CATHOLIC CHURCH BIBLE! Therefore what they couldn't get rid of the Catholic Church for its teachings for they OWED MUCH on her for their Bible teachings!

Without the Catholic Church, there is no Bible!

  1. Beware of the Iglesia ni Christi.

    I've debated one of these cult members and he has denied even the very Red Letter Words of Christ Jesus in defending his cults doctrines.

    This vile cult has adopted some very long-ago ancient heresies as part of they doctrines and theologies. Here is a partial list:

    Gnostism
    Arianism
    Docetism
    Sabellianism
    Nestorianism

    They twist scripture to their and yours, destruction.

    Beware of the honey...........it will turn into sour vinegar.
