"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 CHURCH: Is it the Catholic Church or the Iglesia Ni Cristo® Church?

According to Pasugo, the Church is the Iglesia Ni Cristo® (INC™)

"...in... 1994... the annals of the Church. The Iglesia Ni Cristo was formally registered with the Tribunale Civile di Roma Cancellaria Provvedimenti Speciali on July 26. Upon completion of the final steps for the registration of the Church in Italy the following day, July 27, 1994, Brother Eraño Manalo signed the document declaring the official establishment of the Church Of Christ in Rome-- the true Church being fully restored in Rome.  (PASUGO God's Message, November 2011, Vol. 63, No. 11, pp. 39-40)
"The official return of the true Church Of Christ to Rome, considered the hub of Catholicism, took place on July 27, 1994, during the Church's 80th anniversary celebration, led by the late Executive Minister himself, Brother Eraño G. Manalo." (PASUGO God's Message, November 2011, Vol. 63, No. 11, p. 38)
"To date, the Church has congregations in all towns and cities of Cavite as 94 locals and 6 extensions of the Iglesia Ni Cristo scatter in the 19 municipalities and 4 cities of the province." (PASUGO God's Message, "The Iglesia Ni Cristo in Cavite: Spiritually Maturing in the Brithplace of Philippine Independence", February 2012, pp. 36-37 (by Jensen DG. Mañebog)
"Many had come to see and hear the denomination's leader, Executive Minister "Brother" Eduardo V. Manalo, who flew in from the Church's headquarters in the Philippines." (PASUGO God's Message, ("Restoring Life", Reprinted with permission fro the Telegraph Herald with Publication Date: January 5, 2012 pages: 1-2, Section: A, by Mary Nevans-Pederson, TH staff writer), p. 17-18)
"Sixty men were added to the Church's global ministerial force, bringing to 1,140 the total of ministers who have been ordained since January 2010-- which translates to roughly 43 ministers per month, or about 10 ministers a week-- quite a welcome in contrast to the mass exodus of priests from the Catholic Church (some 20,000 left the priesthood during the last 50 years in the United States alone), as author Donald B. Cozzens recounted in his book entitled, 'The Changing Face of Priesthood: A Reflection on the Priest's Crisis of Soul'." (PASUGO God's Message, "Ordination Yields 60 New Ministers", p. 14, (by Dennis C. Lovendino)
On the one hand this Iglesia Ni Cristo® blogger is exposing the "Fallacies of the Church"!

Confused??! :)
