Bro. Eli Soriano puts an end to Brazilian pastors’ exploiting the law of ‘tithes’

Palmas, Brazil (10/20/16) The Presiding Minister of the Members Church of God International (MCGI) Brother Eli Soriano, his zealousness in conducting live Bible Expositions (Exposição da Bíblia ) and Mass Indoctrinations (Doutrinação Em Massa) in different parts of Brazil like Belo Horizonte, Divinopolis and Palmas produced 15 newly baptized brethren. Most of which, Catholics and Evangelicals and other religious denominations.

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

A bigger place of worship

Because of the ever growing number of Brazilians attending and getting baptized, there is a need for a bigger venue.

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.

 (Article regarding shabu raid in Pampanga, click here)

Screen Shot 2016-10-07 at 7.09.36 PM.png

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?

screen-shot-2016-10-07-at-8-25-00-pm

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.

The Philippine government is currently on its transformation, battling different issues like poverty, corruption and a lot more that includes prevalent drug problems. The Ang Dating Daan Worldwide Bible Exposition is a venue for our fellowmen to take time and focus on their spiritual needs, doubts, questions or anything regarding religious matters.

Ang Dating Daan program has been airing since its first episode in 1983 answering peoples queries anything and everything. Now the program can be seen and heard through different languages such as English (The Old Path Channel ), in Spanish (El Camino Antiguo ), Portuguese ( O Caminho Antigo ), Swahili (IDHAA YA UKWELI) and of course, Tagalog (Ang Dating Daan).

“Ito pong ginagawa ng UNTV, mga public services, napakarami po nito. It will not be possible without the help of the Almighty, the Members of the Church of God International, lahat ng mga team na lumahok, kasi naniniwala kaming bayani kayong lahat. You sweat.. para ikaw ay mapagod para makagawa ka ng tulong sa mga charitable institutions kagaya ng mananalong team, ido-donate nila yung kanilang mapapanalunan doon sa mga charitable institutions of their choice, naniniwala akong it’s a kind of sacrifice. Salamat sa ating mga senador, mga pulis, sa government agencies na lumahok, patunayan ninyo na sa paglahok pa lang ninyo, inyong pagnanais na makatulong sa kapwa Pilipino. Kailangang kailangan kayo ng bayan. Samahan nawa kayo ng Panginoon mga kapatid, mga kababayan, mga kaibigan at sana palawakin pa ang magagawang charitable works ng UNTV sa pamamagitan din ng UNTV Cup.

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.”
