Hello everyone, I just joined the group. This is Dr. Lucia Teen from Quezon City, Philippines.
Before I proceed with my introduction, I would like to clarify that I am a male and I am not a doctor. The log in I use is just some sort of anagram of my real name. This log in or nickname also serves some security purpose…to confuse the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) if ever they decide to track me down.
I was born and raised in the INC. I have professed my faith in its doctrines when I was indoctrinated and baptized.
I have been a very active officer of the INC…from the local level, to the Ecclesiastical Disctrict, to the INC Metro Manila Coordinating Committee and to the INC Central Office.
I have persecuted Catholics wherever I met them…including the internet.
I was very faithful to God, and he must have been the one who held me up high, outside and beyond the INC. I realized that I have been deceived. The INC created a very unreal image of itself and distorted everything about the Catholic Church.
I gradually stopped attending the INC worship services in the year 2000. In addition, I was very interested in knowing what the Jubilee Year was about and my Catholic friends were very kind to tell me.
In January 2001, I joined EDSA People Power 2 and was disappointed how the INC Administration could not declare a position while it was obvious that they are supporting former President Estrada. When the conflict ended, I attended my very first Catholic Mass…the Thanksgiving Mass at the EDSA Shrine officiated by Cardinal Sin.
In March 2001, after declaring to our resident minister that I have stopped believing the teachings of the INC, I left it. I did not want to join any organized religion afterwards, but I was already praying like a Catholic. I began having a devotion to the blessed mother Mary and the Holy Family.
On June 3, 2001, after reading a missallete from a mass we were unable to attend, I was convinced that the Church that Our Lord Jesus Christ established did not perish or completely apostatized. Christ built his church and the gates of hell did not prevail against it. He also promised that he will be with his church until the end of time.
On September 9, 2001, I received the last of the needed sacraments to complete my conversion. I converted to the Roman Catholic Church.
For me, the most powerful and effective way to bring people like the INCs to enlightenment…is prayer.
Pray and let others see Christ in you.
If you have questions about the INC, I may be able to answer them. Please avoid sending private messages or emails as I may not be able to reply. Answering similar questions over and over again would be very inconvenient.
If you want to know more about me, please check out everything that I have written on the following link

I also have my own discussion group. Please visit
There had been initial efforts to gather Catholic Apologists online, please visit the sites above to get acquainted with them. There are priests and other religious who respond to questions on my discussion group.
So far, I have been interacting with at least two group of apologists, the ones at forum/84590 and the Defensoris Fidei.
I have joined this forum to meet others.
