Who would have thought that the person being belittled by the different pastors in the province of Apalit, Pampanga would made a journey that had been changing and touching lives through his preachings coming straight from the Bible?

Bro. Eliseo SorianoBro. Eli as he is called cannot be mistaken from any other pastors nor his name, per se. It is always in coordinate with as the host of the longest-running religious program, Ang Dating Daan,  and the Presiding Minister of  Members Church of God International.

It is just amazing how God really moves in His mysterious ways. Truly, no one and no other pastor had ever done what Bro. Eli did.  From a small and humble vision for every Filipino to know the truth and to be free from the chains of faith that had been wrangled around our necks for centuries, the shy kid and 7th of eighth siblings, Bro. Eli is delivering the teachings of God into different language-speaking countries all over the globe.

Bro. Eli traveled not in the most flattering way. It’s a rocky one. Rocky to be stepped upon to those who lives in lies and shades away the truth. Rocky to those people who blatantly refuses to see the truth in the clearest thoughts and teachings in the Bible.

One blogger wrote, and I quote,

“Bro. Soriano’s persecution led him into exile but the fruit turned out into something good for the Church.”

Technology Intervenes…

From a man power of just 3, the broadcast of Ang Dating Daan made thru the airwaves. With its minimal airtime, the impact of such powerful and hard-hitting teachings had struck down even the most powerful religious denomination to the point of dragging the whole congregation to stop Bro. Eli in courts.

Despite all intrigues and death threats, communication technology is the only source that cannot be stopped by his accusers. Showing evidences, the undisputed Filipino televangelist had been sweeping awards that acknowledging all his efforts. Not only in radio but also in television programs, and to the most well-known gag show Bubble Gang; the same station that had brought Bro. Eli Soriano to bad light.

Bro. Eli Soriano’s official blog site, Controversy Extraordinary with a total of  4,065,126 page views. Facebook page with over 253, 459 likes, and his Twitter  account with more than 91.4 k  followers. This were just some Bro. Eli’s way of communicating not only to those in the congregation but also to those who were looking for the truth and in most cases, just to seek some “loopholes” in his teachings.

The astounding requests for Bro. Eli to visit different countries to propagate the teachings of  Our Lord Jesus Christ came to realization. Regardless to all the death threats of the influential religions joining forces for Bro. Eli to be put behind bars, specifically, Iglesia ni Cristo of Manalo, Bro. Eli Soriano, setting aside his safety and grant the request of that other side of the globe.

 

 

To those who want Bro. Eli not to be seen in his native country, the Philippines, still, thank you. Half-hearted and the road in this journey facing loneliness, but still – thank you. This may sound silly… absurd to others, but if it wasn’t for that persecutions and death threats, the Members Church of God International had not gone its full bloom worldwide. Never had such a church seeing people who were hungry for the truth and spiritual awakening that had brought this teachings from the Bible like a double-edged sword. Cutting both ways.

 

 

In the eyes of the people, Bro. Eli, not only the most sensible preacher of our times but a philanthropist as well. With most of his works, really, having a heart to do good for others cannot be kept silent – for a long time. Despite the fact that he wanted it to be a secret, gratitude always prevails. With our todays society, old people seems a burden to them. But in the congregation that Bro. Eli Soriano leads, he had placed them in the front. Home for the Elderly is one of them and so many other to mention.

cross-examination of Bro. Eli to Mr. Catarinen
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.”
