Dízimos / tithes

Bro. Eli noticed how generous Brazilians is in giving tithes to their pastors. Questions about “dizimo” is always brought up in every exposition and through the Mass Indoctrination, he crushed that practice. Brazil is a big country with vast lands but there are many families remain poor after years and years believing miracles will soon come and by giving in to the pastors every wish.

Pastors getting rich collecting tithes while its members getting poor giving tithes.” 

Importance of Baptism

“Let us study the power of the holy spirit,” says Bro. Eli. He shared his experience when he was young and had been suffering from asthma. “I’ve learned how to live with the difficulty of breathing.” After his baptism he continued preaching even though the doctors forbid him to do strenuous works.

He is known in the Philippines as the walking Bible” because he can answer questions based on the Bible, even without opening it. “You have seen me answering questions without notes. Because of this, I believe in the power of God and what it can do for us.” He finished up the statement by this words.

“Submit ourselves in the power of God.”– Bro. Eli Soriano

Bro. Eli Soriano’s plea to the Filipinos, Don’t blame it all to the government

Apalit, Pampanga Philippines. [10/12/16]  “My plea to the Filipino people, don’t solely blame the government”.  This is Bro. Eli Soriano’s statement regarding the killings of drug addicts in the Philippines. He reiterated that the government of President Duterte is doing its best to eliminate rampant drug addiction. Adding to the presidents’ problem is the media, paid by the rich men behind these drug traffickers to go up against him.

This plea is prompted by Belinda Era, a Catholic from Tunasan, Muntinlupa City asks about “freewill”. Also, as a mother, she is concerned about the safety of her children and to the lives of the innocent ones at the Ang Dating Daan Worldwide Exposition held on October 7, 2016.

“Kaya lang po ako naging concerned ay dahil isang magulang din po ako. Lalong lalo na sa mga inosenteng nadamay sa ganito.” (I am a parent and concerned of what is going on, especially to the innocent ones being killed.)

Screen Shot 2016-10-07 at 9.25.20 PM.png

It is inevitable that innocent ones are also affected because of unpredictable circumstances. He cited an example about a recent raid that killed a 5-year old in a drug operation. Bro. Eli pointed that it is important to keep an eagle eye on our children. An example of keeping a safe environment is at the school premises. La Verdad Christian College is implementing strict ordinance against a possible drug activity. The school prohibits cigarettes and beers making drug dealers impossible to even sneak in a drug inside the campus. Fraternity is also prohibited because it leads to physical violence against human lives. The school is being monitored and strictly guarded.

Bro. Eli, point by point shows how it is unfair to easily pinpoint the government as the culprit in extra-judicial killings in his blog Controversy Extraordinary.  (Click here to read more)

DOHA, QATAR  Who should we worship?

Screen Shot 2016-10-07 at 7.37.11 PM.png

God, Christ and the Spirit should be worshiped. Christ’ crucifixion represents our sins. His death redeemed our sins. Christ should be worshiped because he is the son of God. “I will prove that Baptist is not true. Its name is not in the Bible and even call their members Baptist, when in fact they are not even officiating baptism. In the Bible, the term baptist is a name given to a baptizer like John who is a baptizer. You will discover gold mines if you listen to the word of God. Christ should be worshiped in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24) Jesus Christ became the redeemer. His death redeemed our sins. (Hebrews 2:14)

Who is Joseph Smith? Is he a true prophet?

Screen Shot 2016-10-07 at 7.39.11 PM.png

Joseph Smith is a liar, swindler, deceiver, many concubines, all sort of foolishness he’s done it. He is a false prophet with 40 wives. Another doctrine of the Mormons is that they believe that the dark-skinned or “negro” is cursed by God. It is only on June 9, 1978 that black skinned is allowed to Mormon priesthood since its foundation on April 6, 1830.

I thank God that you are zealous in propagating the word of God.- Merle Coguia

What is the difference between the Church of God’s doctrine to other religions? What is the status of a person that prioritize material things? How about the pretentious? They say that they are of God but it is clearly not seen through their works and attitude. What will be the judgment for these kind of faith?

Screen Shot 2016-10-07 at 8.12.13 PM.png

There is a big difference. There is no other church in the Bible but the Church of God. Some people think that they know better than God. They changed the name, commandments that the apostles wrote and also the commandments of God. We strictly adhere what is written in the Bible. Purely Biblical. The doctrine, name, integration, good deeds written, we conform. We preach freely. The manner of clothing, we do not let our members dress up in garish.

Where did Cain get his wife?

Iglesia ni Cristo’s teaching is that Adam and Eve has only 2 sons. That is not true. When Cain killed Abel, the process of pro-creation did not stop.

Other places like Apalit Pmpanga,  San Joaquin Ilo-ilo and Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam also joined in.

Perilous times

Bro. Eli Soriano began the exposition by pointing out the current situations in our times.He cited one line in Balagtas’ poem Florante at Laura, “Sapagka’t ang mundo’y bayan ng hinagpos,mamamaya’y sukat tibayan ang dibdib;lumaki sa tuwa’y walang pagtitiis…anong ilalaban sa dahas ng sakit.

It is normal for a person to fear death. But sad to say, now, people took his own life because of prevalent drug use and they know what will be their ending. Mayors, government officials and simple citizens were victims of drugs. Worrisome and alarming. that is the description that Bro. Eli describe at our society.

Fear of God

Bro. Eli looked back at how and when he started to accept the teachings of God. “I am always observant and curious. When I was young I have an asthma. What motivates me is that I feared dying without knowing the truth.        The teachings. I recommended to fear God. It is the start of knowledge. In Proverbs 9:10 it says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

The program is hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano, this is his message to our fellowmen.

Sa pamamagitan ng sulat, kung sa pamamagitan na ng sulat ay nangyayari na ang espiritu ni Apostol Pablo ay makarating doon sa mga unang Kristiano, di lalo pong sa pamamagitan ng satellite, sa pamamagitan ng livestreaming sa internet, sa Facebook at sa iba’t ibang medium na ating ginagamit ay makakarating kami sa inyo spiritually. Kaya nagsisikap tayo na makapag establish ng mga iba’t ibang lugar sa mundo kung saan pwedeng mag monitor ang ating mga kababayan at ang ating mga kapwa tao.  — Bro. Eli Soriano

(Apostle Paul reached the first Christians through letters, much more through satellite, livestreaming, Facebook and other mediums to reach you spiritually. We are trying our best to establish a monitoring centers for our fellowmen in all parts of the globe.– Bro. Eli Soriano  )
