Catholic Fiction Special Edition: Are Catholics Christians?
February 19, 2010 by GADEL
A response to those who ask any of these questions:
* Are Catholics Christians? * Are you a Christian or a Catholic?
St. Irenaeus of Lyon:
“…the Catholic Church possesses one and the same faith throughout the whole world, as we have already said.” (Against Heresies 1:10 [A.D. 189]) (emphasis added)
“The truth is to be found nowhere else but in the Catholic Church, the sole depository of apostolical doctrine. Heresies are of recent formation, and cannot trace their origin up to the apostles.” (Against Heresies 3:4 [A.D. 189])
