"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

MANILA - Lawyers of former Iglesia Ni Cristo minister Isaias Samson Jr. on Thursday called INC's response to the illegal detention case they filed at the Department of Justice "irrational" and "non-responsive."

In a statement, lawyers Trixie Cruz-Angeles and Ahmed Paglinawan said the INC leadership reacted "in a manner that speaks of irrationality and non-responsiveness."

"Instead of answering the allegations at preliminary investigation, they immediately call out the Department of Justice officials as being biased, based solely on their perception that the mere docketing of the case at the main office is already proof of said "selective justice," the statement said.

Cruz-Angeles and Paglinawan also called out Glicerio Santos Jr. and the rest of the Sanggunian, a council of ranking INC ministers, for publicly pressuring the DOJ instead of seeking recourse with the courts.

"The investigation has not begun, no evidence has been adduced and neither side has been heard. The complaint was filed on Tuesday 25 August, and no notices for hearings have been sent out. What are they complaining about?" Samson's lawyers said .

Samson's lawyers also described INC's action as a form of bullying, where the church leaders and members ask for special privileges.

"They believe that a massing of people pressuring officials to rule in their favor is a strategy that gets them off the hook. They fail to see that they look like bullies at the gate demanding that the DOJ rule in a certain way - THEIR way. They fail to see that they aren't demanding justice, they are demanding special privileges," the statement added..

Cruz-Angeles and Paglinawan maintained that Samson will not be silenced once more and assured that their client’s legitimate concerns will be aired out.
