Base Gardiner,I see that no one can address the Bible verses I quoted. LOL!
It is pretty funny that our INC cult clowns conveniently forget that the NT was written over a couple centuries. No credible scholar believes that one man wrote each of the four books attributed to them. They concede that many men took what was told to them and transcribed it. Basic research shows that Mary, the mother of Christ, began to be venerated in the third or fourth century. This would be shortly after the original Bible books were completed. Few can deny that they have displayed reverence for Mary for almost two milennia. How old is the INC cult?
You make me laugh!!! Where did you get the info that the New Testament was written just some two hundred years ago??? Your Tuskegee syphilis is warping your brain!!!
If you cannot write in English, then, just stop posting!!! TOPIX for sure does not like an ignoramus!!!
Only the spurious Catholic religion displayed reverence for Mary!!! Mary was never worshipped by the the first-century Christians or primitive Christianity!!!
The Iglesia ni Cristo worships only one true God and not the Holy Trinity and Mary!!!
And for your info, the Church of Christ is older than the Roman Catholic Church:
"5. Did Jesus Christ establish a Church? Yes, from all history, both secular and profane, as well as from the Bible considered as a human document, we learn that Jesus Christ established a Church, which from the earliest times has been called after Him the Christian Church or the Church of Christ."

"This Church, founded and organized by Christ and preached by the apostles is the Church of Christ....It is the only true Church, and the one which God orders all men to join."
