cross-examination of Bro. Eli to Mr. Catarinen

“Sa kabila ng mga pang-iinsulto ni G. Catarinen, pinatatawad ko na siya. Kahit sinabi pa niyang masasama ang taga-Dating Daan.” – Bro. Eli Soriano

“Despite Mr. Catarinen’s insulting words and even saying that the members of Ang Dating Daan is evil, I forgive him… “ – Bro. Eli Soriano

Mr. Catarinen had been bashing and throwing hurtful words to his person, thus, saying malicious words to the organizers halfway the event.

The Topic:   I will prove that our Lord Jesus Christ s the founder of the true church and He is also the owner of the true church based on the Bible. 

Bro. Eli implies that the Church is an entity. A group that the Father owns. People around the globe witnessed and definitely learned a lot from the debate, even the moderator, who admitted and understood the essence of who owns the church. The church is an entity owned by the Father.

1 Ped. 2:9 –Datapuwa’t kayo’y isang lahing hirang, isang makaharing pagkasaserdote, bansang banal, bayang pag-aaring sarili ng Dios, upang inyong ipahayag ang mga karangalan niyaong tumawag sa inyo mula sa kadiliman, hanggang sa kaniyang kagilagilalas na kaliwanag.

1 Peter 2:9 — But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;

Ang absolute owner ay ang Ama, ipinagkaloob kay Kristo — ang pangulo sa lahat ng mga bagay sa iglesia. Colosas 1:18   At siya ang ulo ng katawan, sa makatuwid baga’y ng iglesia; na siya ang pasimula, ang panganay sa mga patay; upang sa lahat ng mga bagay, ay magkaroon siya ng kadakilaan.

Colosians 1:18  He is also the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He might come to have first place in everything.

To close the debate, Bro. Eli has this to say: “May God bless us all, and may we continue to quest for the truth as long as we live. Triumph belongs to God. Glory belongs to God.”

Bro. Eli Soriano to give 2 Million Pesos for Congregational Songs

Screen Shot 2019-11-10 at 11.04.52 PM

Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines. [11/10/2019] A Song of Praise (ASOP) Music Festival celebrated its 8th Year Grand Finals Night held at the New Frontier Theater  with its inspiring songs of praises.

The President and CEO of BMPI, Kuya Daniel Razon, thanked everyone for the 8 years of ASOP and shared that every time he finishes composing a song, never will he forget to thank God. “I am a poet. I am one of the undefeated poets in Bulacan. Most of my classmates often called me Andres Bonifacio. I already did 59 songs, one of those of which is Richard Raynoso.”

I am grateful, especially those composers, amateur composers,  and I am thinking that if a person thought of creating songs for God, they believe in God not unlike the Atheist. I am thinking of how to go extend further to reach up until 1 million pesos. We already created songs to almost anyone and anything and totally forgotten to create one for God.

(Naawitan na natin lahat pero maraming nakalimot na umawit sa Dios. Lagi nating isapusong magpasalamat sa Dios. Di natin kayang pantayan lahat ng ginawa niya. )


The panel of judges includes  Mr. Arnel Tipano, Buboy Garovillo, Jackie Lou Blanco, Ms. Lani Misalucha, Ben and Ben, Pambansang Suplado Doc. Mon del Rosario and Prof. Felipe de Leon.

Bro. Eli Soriano also acknowledged the presence of one of the members of Apo Hiking Society, Buboy Garovillo. “To the Suplado ng Bayan, I like the song, with praise and wisdom. Judges, Miguel Benjamin and Arnel Tipano. Also to Jackie Lou Blanco. I remembered your  mom, Pilita Corales, one of my favorite singers. We thought of inviting Ms. Lani Misalucha to Brazil. Singers here are being paid more than 1 million pesos and you are way better than them. We have a show on December, I would like to invite you on the 3rd week of December. Also to Professor de Leon, to the hosts, we are grateful to Richard and Tony Rose, we want to be with you until the end and also to the members of the Members Church of God International.” 

I like to share one thing, the song of Praise came from above. The song is as old as the universe. 4.5 billion years ago, the angels sang. It is older than the earth. In the book of Job 38:4-God showed Job his ignorance. God knows everything.  God himself sings, in Isaiah 5:1-God is speaking, the vineyard in the prophecy is the Lord, God sings, the Christians sings, the angels sings, and multitude of angels, singing is a part of eternity. This gave me hope.

A proposition from Bro. Eli Soriano

“Let us create songs, not only for individual singers, but also for congregational songs.”

For the next creations, I will shed some of my hard earned money, I will come up with a 2 million grand prize to create for congregational songs. Isang kanta na makakakanta ng buong komunidad at international. I want to encourage all people to make a song. I like to thank all singers, supporters, judges. Napakahalaga ng pagkanta.
