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.

Screen Shot 2016-09-09 at 4.41.29 PM.png

I was with President Widodo, what is the dimension of your problem? In Indonesia, we have 4 million drug addicts. Eh, sabi ko, nauna ka lang pala ng ilang thousand! We are really worried. Ganito yan.

I never made a statement here. Do not believe that. There was never any interview here. But kung mag spin itong media, that’s why I said, if you are really, my advice for you, magkaibigan lang, for whatever reason, what can you say, kung ano masabi mo, because they can spin stories several times over and all lies, I never confronted Obama here cause I do not know him. Before taking off from Davao, nagkaroon ng presscon.

Alam mo, ganito yan, itong mga yellow, may jaundice eh, at itong mga taga State Department, mabasa ninyo ang Philippine news that they were trying to crucify me for the extra judicial killing at sabing ganun, I will be investigated by the international court. Di hinayaan ko na lang. Sabi ko, United States, why? Or should I answer them? Eh bakit? So yung ganun. And that there will be a certain time that Obama will ask me about the human rights problem. Sabi ko, I do not answer to anybody except to the Filipino people. I am only responsible to you. Kaya sabi ko, “Who he?” yun ang sinabi ko. if somebody brings it out, and that was in the airport in Davao City, it would be an act of disrespect. Bastos yan. Yun lang ang sinabi ko. and you can review the tapes. Hindi ko sinabing #$%@. May sinabi ako, not in relation with Obama.

He also cited about a live report of Ed Lingao that is immediately picked by the international press.

Ed Lingao’s apology letter

You can review the tape because about yesterday, si Ed Lingao, whom, yung breaking news naglagay doon ng statement na minura ko daw si Obama. Ed Lingao, just also read it from the report from the correspondents in Davao. Ni review niya. Sya yung anchor eh. Then I found out, andiyan, lumabas sa Facebook, he apologized. Because I never made any reference to Obama. Kaya pinapaaway lang.

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.

 

Duterte Silence Foreign Journalist

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‘.

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 12.40.30 AM.png

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”.

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 1.49.14 AM

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.”
