The Iglesia Ni Cristo is represented by Brother Jose Ventilacion while the Roman Catholic Church was represented by Jesse Romero, a lay Catholic evangelist and retired Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy from Sylmar.
The debate is organized by the members of Lumen Christi, a men’s Bible study group that meets at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Visalia and the Iglesia Ni Cristo local congregation in Visalia. Each of the two groups paid half of the cost of rent of the 1,200-seat Fox Theatre.
About the La Motte church dedication:
When Holy Rosary Catholic Church was established in 1893, church leaders sprinkled holy water around the sanctuary of the fine brick edifice. Now 119 years later, the church building was dedicated as the newest church for Iglesia Ni Cristo (Filipino for Church of Christ). During the two-hour-long ceremony, church leaders and the faithful shed copious tears of piety, ecstasy and religious fervor. (Read More at Post Crescent)

I was searching the internet for the video of the recently held debate of the Iglesia ni Cristo represented by Mr. Jose Ventilacion and the Seventh Day Adventist Church or Sabadista represented by Mr. Thomson when I accidentally visited your website. In a certain page about you, I learned that you are an Iglesia ni Cristo member. …
Do you have any copy of the said video? Can you please send me the copy of it? …
It is true that I am a member of the Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) but I’m sorry to tell you that I was not aware of that said debate not until I read your email.
I don’t have video of it but I noticed that there’s a series of video clips uploaded to youtube with Brother Joe Ventilacion who represented the Iglesia ni Cristo in a debate with the Seventh Day Adventist Church represented by Mr. Richard Thomson (I don’t if it’s the correct spelling of his name). I am not sure if the debate featured on this video is the one that you are looking for.

I am fond of reading Bible and engaging in informal debate and bible sharing.
Normally, the two persons in debate tried to show proofs or verses of the Bible in different versions just to back up their claims, arguments or beliefs. Then whenever one uses a questionable verse in proving something, the other one tries to show or prove that the verse he used is erroneously translated. I haven’t yet witness a debate that one of the debater tried to deceive the audience, his opponents or the moderator by changing a page of certain version of the Bible, not until I found this video:
The debate was held on August 5, 2006. The Iglesia ni Cristo was represented by Brother Ramil Parba while the Roman Catholic Church was represented by Mr. Talibong. Usually, in formal debates the Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines is represented by one of the members of the Catholic Defender.
What happened is that during the show down, Mr. Talibong argued that he can read a verse that clearly said that Christ build the Holy Apostolic Roman Catholic Church. The verse is Matthew 16:18 in the Confraternity Bible. The only problem is that the Catholic Defenders changed the page where the Matt. 16:18 was printed with the page they wrote by themselves.
The original text of the Matt 16:18 of the Confraternity Version goes: “…. I will build my church…” What the Catholic Defenders did was changed that part to: “… I will build my Holy Apostolic Catholic Roman Church…”
And just like what Brother Parba cried, it’s really a deception!
