"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

Dr. Daniel B. Wallace Finally Confronts the Iglesia Ni Cristo®-1914 Deceptive Literature

"The Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) is a Filipino-based group that rejects the major tenets of the historical Christian faith.  InC, in particular attempts to deny that the deity of Christ is a biblical doctrine.  And although they view themselves as the only true church, they freely use several bona fide academic works to support their views -- in spite of the fact that the authors of such works would be appalled to learn of the abuse of their own writings. I was shocked to learn that InC members had used my Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics in support of their heterodox beliefs.  Duane Cartujano, a Roman Catholic apologist, has investigated their views.  He supplies plenty of documentation -- both quotations of the secondary literature and an exposition of the biblical text -- to refute the InC. I, for one, am glad that he has exposed this group for what it really is.  His book will serve as a welcome corrective to the deceptions of the Iglesia ni Cristo. -Dr. Daniel B. Wallace, Author of Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics, Senior Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
