“I suggest, they should change their name to Adventista Cada Setimo Dia.”
Florianopolis, Santa Catarina Brazil [April 28, 2017] Brother Eli Soriano blast the erroneous teachings of the Seventh Day Adventist in the recent Bible Exposition held at Florianopolis, Santa Catarina Brazil, 28th of April 2017.
A guest prompted this question, is it right to work during Saturdays? Is it important?
Bro. Eli cited the verse in Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. It is foolishness to the Seventh Day Adventist because their hospitals are open and even the janitors are working. Pastors are profiting and even let woman led the church — Ellen G. White, the founder of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. What kind of woman is Ellen G. White?
She prophesied that the world will end in 1843. Bro. Eli Soriano added, “…when they failed the prophecy, they blamed God. At first glace, it is wrong! The name is wrong. I asked why adventist? He said, we are waiting for the Christ. But they should have said, “CADA setimo dia” … every Saturdays. Americans bring these religions here in Brazil. I suggest, they should change their name to Adventista Cada Setimo Dia. I even encourage a debate to prove it. They said that there is only 10 commandments. I said, is baptism a commandment? He said yes, then, it is already 11. It is on the bible.”
Some of the guests diligently listening to Bro. Eli’s explanation based on the Bible.
Bible Exposition or Exposição da Bíblia in Portuguese started in the Philippines via the program Ang Dating Daan, a religious radio and television program that is now airing 24- hour web streaming hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon. For more information regarding the program, click this link.

Although we are of different races and colors, doing good doesn’t have to have barriers. Bro. Eli Soriano, also a supporter of many advocacies, provides a lot of help which he also sees an opportunity for others to make use of their lives by giving something meaningful to our fellowmen. As Kuya Daniel Razon says, “Ang paggawa ng mabuti ay di magbubunga ng masama.”
Davao City, Philippines [9/2/2016] Before 11 in the evening of September 2, 2016, a loud explosion with smoke shaken Roxas, Davao City night market. 14 people had been killed and 60 injured. An on-going investigation is conducted to determine the real cause of the explosion.
In an interview of Sunstar Davao on Director Manuel Gaerlan, Police Regional Officer, they are looking into the possibility that a liquified petroleum gas (LPG) cause the blast. Checkpoints were establish at all exit points in the city. The victims were rushed to the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC), Limso Hospital, Davao Doctors Hospital, and Brokenshire Hospital.
Seeing that the auditorium cannot accommodate more, he thought of buying a larger venue of more than 30,000 seating capacity. A new convention center near the airport is a good idea. Another good news to our fellowmen, a Diagnostic Center will be opening in Metro Manila. It is a 4-storey building with elevator wherein equipment’s and patients will be placed. Scheduled to be operational before the end of this year for the benefit of the brethren and non-brethren.
Kuya Daniel mentioned about what the program Serbisyong Kasambahay is for. “Sa pamamagitan nito ay nakakakuha ako ng tie up sa iba’t ibang hospital at nai-wave ang bayad at nairaraos ang mga pangangailangan ng mga kapatid at di kapatid, para maidulog katulad ng mga sumusukong mga drug addict. Bakit ka sa akin ka sumusuko? Kasi ayaw ko pong mapatay. Sabi ko naman, sir, ito po ay lumapit sa aking buhay. Dati siyang drug addict 5 years ago, nag bagong buhay. Ang problema kasama pa rin sya sa listahan. Kinatok po ako eh. sabi sa akin, di na po ako nag da-drugs.”
Bro. Eli Soriano also expressed his hearts desire in coming back to the Philippines and to meet the brethren in Davao City. But if plans don’t go forward, Bro. Eli has this message to all:
“Sa mga taga Davao, pasensiya na kayo. Sa mga kapatid sa Davao, kaunti lang ang mga nakapagtanong. Gusto ko nga sanang makabalik diyan sa Davao. Nami-miss ko na, sana kung loloobin ng Dios, makabalik ako diyan sa inyo. Pero kung di man ako makakabalik sa inyo mga kapatid, andiyan naman si Kapatid na Daniel. Tulungan nyo siya sa gawain at sa mga pagtataguyod ng mga gawain.”
The time is also perfect as the topic for the Thanksgiving is being delivered in the midst of the congregation. Brethren learned the significance and the limitless love and care of God Almighty.
Apalit, Pampanga Philippines [8/22/2016] After President Rodrigo Duterte had broken all customs of what a politician should be, should sound like, what topics should be discussed, the “morale” of the Filipino people is at its highest. Disgusted from previous presidents, now the tunnel of light is seen for the Philippines’ economical boost and a drug-free country.
In the latest meeting with the media, President Duterte silenced Mr. Miller, a foreign journalist from Asia. He ask the president about ‘unleashing a national death squad‘.
Mr. Miller : At the risk of being shot down, the numbers of people who’ve being killed in the streets of the Philippines since you come into power, 6 weeks ago, has risen into thousand. I know you have been contentious of your critics, but, they are accusing you of unleashing a national death squad. When is this gonna end?
Pres. Duterte: That is a very good question. Because in the past, no political leaders is really willing to work and risk his life. The standard practice in this system of government is that, when they accused, they would always file a counter-charge. They always use that poor leverage against the poor policeman. Remember in this country, no lawyer is provided for the policeman and other security officers when they are in trouble with the law. They are left on the mercy of their own. That was the policy beforehand the previous ones they left behind.
The foreign journalist followed up with the question that pointing out, the president being a lawyer. A simple practice, that a person is innocent until proven guilty.
The president, giving some statistics about how prevalent the drug problem is in the country, describing the current situation as “pandemic”.
Mr. Miller : At the risk of a ‘gun law’ sir?
Pres. Duterte : “It can happen! It happened.”
He cited the United States of America as an example. The policemen in his country also kill blacks on the streets. Another significant issue is that of the boy that was rescued in the rubbles’ bombing in Syria.
“Why US is not doing anything about it! Are we here about the country? Or the basic human rights? Almost the same.”
Apalit, Pampanga, Philippines The UNTV Cup Season 5 Ang Liga ng Public Servants opening ceremony will take place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on August 29, 2016. Biggest surprise is that “Pambansang Kamao” and Senator Manny Pacquiao will be joining the team Senate Defenders. Both senators’ Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara is a fan of the boxing champ.
Setting aside of his boxing gloves, now with the Senate Defenders jersey, will they be the one to beat? Will Manny Pacquiao help to knock other teams?
