The lucky person I am: Most slandered me


Remembering Matthew 5:11 specially when I’m alone “makes me happy, makes me feel fine.”  I feel fine because as human being, I will naturally feel hurt and at times angered by accusations from all directions, but realizing the essence of what the Lord Jesus Christ said, such feelings will instantaneously be gone! The verse says:

MATTHEW 5:11

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

To be blessed by God while other curse, revile, persecute and say all manner of evil, falsely against you is luck! Blessings that come from God are priceless. It is the root of all good things that a man may hope for. It cannot be fully described by human tongue or language.

The Lord Jesus Christ was slandered too, and some of those defamations were recorded as follows.

MATTHEW 27:63

Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again. 

JOHN 7:20

The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?

MATTHEW 12:24

But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.

MATTHEW 9:34

But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils. 

JOHN 10:33

The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. 

MATTHEW 11:19

The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. 

Even the apostles were slandered. 

THE ACTS 25:7

And when he was come, the Jews which came down from Jerusalem stood round about, and laid many and grievous complaints against Paul, which they could not prove. 

III JOHN 1:9

I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not. 

III JOHN 1:10

 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church. 

II TIMOTHY 4:14

Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: 

II TIMOTHY 4:15

Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words. 

Even the Christians of the first century were slandered, no different from me. 

I PETER 2:12

Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. 

This is the path that almost all the people of God have walked throughout their sojourn on earth.

Most slandered me 

I believe using mathematical and logical calculations that, I am the most slandered man in the history of Christianity. The defamations being thrown to my person “go beyond borders.” I mean beyond the borders of the land of my birth, the Philippines. By using the most efficient cyberspace technology that is however lenient in terms of charging responsibility and accountability, my detractors were able to popularize these lies beyond borders. One thing I can assure the Members of the Church of God International is, that the lies they are sending beyond borders, if treated in shallowest of equity and justice, will never gain ground. To my God be the Glory forever! And to me and to all that believe in what I preach, His blessings! Amen. 

II TIMOTHY 3:12

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

    Indeed we are also lucky for in our present times there is one person who boldly speaks the truth without hesitation or fear of persecutions.

    Bro. Eli, you are so blessed for the legacy of righteousness and fear of the Lord runs within you.

    THANKS BE TO GOD!

  2. pepjay says:

    AMEN! TO GOD BE THE GLORY! We in the Church of God (MCGI) are so blessed, that God sent you to us so we could hear and understand His Holy Words. Amidst the so many oppressions, false accusations, curses etc, we have faith in you and in all your endeavors to propagate and spread the TRUTH. We pray for your health and we will never tire to wait, to see you again in time. We all love you Brod Eli and we are also thankful that God gave you His Men.

  3. Ericso Herrera says:

    Amen.

  4. Ren Newman says:

    Bro. Eli, I still remember what you once said: SLANDER UNDESERVED IS PRAISE IN DISGUISE.

    And to that I say, AMEN!

  6. Jo Cervania says:

    Dearest Bro. Eli,

    Thanks be to God for so many things we learned from you. Not only from your preaching but also from your advocacy in propagating the gospel of our Lord and doing it. You teach us how to love our neighbors specially our brethren without expecting in return. You teach us humility and so many virtue that we see in you. You are a father and a brother to us. No words can explain this happiness every time we hear you preaching. We learn Biblical truths that we do not hear from our previous affiliation , and we learn the meaning of our existence through you. We learn how to obey God and how to keep the faith to Lord Jesus Christ. We learn what we had learn now only from you, for you are the man of God, and most of all, we learn to thank our Creator.

    Many despise you and the congregation you lead, but despite of that, you and Bro. Daniel keen on doing the task that our Creator gave to you. You did not turn your back to us, you love us more than yourself. You love the ministry more than yourself. We see and we feel, how you give your life and all of you for the sake of the gospel.

    Bro. Eli, we thank our God Almighty for all of these. Having you as our preacher and mentor, is a great blessing from Him. We pray to God to keep you safe and healthy always.

  8. QWERTY says:

    We love you Bro. Eli! Salamat sa Dios sa pagpoprotekta n’ya sa inyo.

  9. megumitch says:

    The more they do these wicked things to you, the more blessed you become. You are lucky indeed Bro. Eli because you are the one being persecuted, not the one persecuting others. This only proves that you are on the side of God.

    We are fortunate as well, to have known you. We strongly believe that you are the preacher sent by God in this dispensation.

    Thanks be to God and To God be the Glory!
    :)

  10. Edmund S Pedro says:

    To God be the Glory brother. Do as you are sent in this world and our prayers are with you. Indeed, this world is full of injustices, but as you have taught us, let us continue to “do good to all men”. If these people will not realize the goodness of what you are doing, the God of heavens, the God of Abraham, of Isaac and of Jacob, will. He knows best.

    May God continue to protect you, and most importantly may He give you the best of health and revelations to continue preaching His gospel in order to gather more souls to His fold.

    Till then and as always, To God be The Glory.

  12. Jeffrey Eugenio says:

    No matter what they say, we know whom to listen to. The more they persecute you, the more they show the vast distance of light and darkness: the more they place themselves in the abyss of lies, and the more the truth shine upon us.

    Desperate are they, poisonous their mouths are! The more they cannot persuade us; for a hero usually suffers strife, but in the end there’s a rainbow after the storm.

  13. Jenn Ji Hyun says:

    “Slander undeserved is praise in disguise.” These wicked people envy the peace that is in you bro. Eli.

  14. pamy says:

    Brother Eli , to be strong for in telling the truth many shall smite and swallow to keep the truth hidden. Though being slandered by majority , you please God and not man. Many will rise against a preacher like you but with God’s help they will cease .. The truth reigns , the goodness, mercy, and love of God shall shine forever…

  15. Bro. Eli, no matter what they say, no matter what kind of defamation they throw against you and Bro. Daniel, in our hearts one thing will remain – through you and Bro. Daniel I have came to know the truth. I was lost before, no hope, no will power to live on – but because of your preachings I have learned that there is God in heaven, the Almighty One – and now I am here continuing in life, serving God, hoping for the mercy of God.

    Thanks be to God for the persecutions they do to you for this I know that you are truly a man of God.

    Glory be to God forever!

  16. Ramil Tesoro Macaraeg says:

    If for others you are the most slandered person in the history of Christianity, for us who believe in what you preach you are a gift from God. You are the one who is sent by God to teach us the way of salvation. May our God and our Lord Jesus Christ guide and protect you and Bro. Daniel always. We love you Bro. Eli. To God be the glory.

    • R.A. says:

      The assertion of Eli Soriano that “[he is] the most slandered man in the history of Christianity” is a big lie. His religion the MCGI just sprouted like a mushroom in the 1970’s and he has the gall to say “he is the most slandered”. How come? This is another distortion of the truth coming from a false prophet to mislead his followers. In the history of Christianity the most slandered person is the pope and Eli Soriano is one among the slanderers. You know why? Because The Catholic Church is the one true church established by Christ in the bible and any other churches are false. Therefore these false prophets will prove themselves that they are from God is to slander and villify the Catholic Church.

      I bet my bottom peso if your church the MCGI’s interpretation of the whore in book of Revelation will not point a finger to the pope of Rome and the Catholic Church.

      • Jenn Ji Hyun says:

        Sorry mr. catholic but we don’t bet ;) You don’t really need to gamble with the truth, it will always be the same, no matter which side you’re in, or what you say about it. I hope for your enlightenment one of these days…

      • Glenn says:

        @ R.A.:

        Are you DREAMING?? Catholic Church is the TRUE church?? it is better to say that catholic church is the THROW church!!!

        Pope was not slandered because what he did since dark ages were TRUE and he really persecuted the Christians! Wake up my friend, you are fooled by these priests…

        I heartily believe that bro eli is the most slandered man in history of Christianity! Because he was slandered by these pastors, preachers, atheist, “idiots”, “morons” WORLDWIDE! unlike before in the time of the apostles, they were only slandered in the places were they foot-in while bro eli was slandered worldwide since the scope of his preaching covers literally the entire world with the help of satellite and world wide web….

      • Really? says:

        If the pope is the most slandered person in history, does he speak the truth?

      • What do you mean the pope is the most slandered person? who is slandering the pope?! Bro. Eli is just exposing the false teachings of the pope the whole catholic faith. God says do not worship graven images or idols made by man. What does the catholic faith do, the pope and all the priests? They allow people, INCLUDING YOU, to do what is abominable in the sight of God! That is not slander, that is the truth!

        Bambi Says :

        Oh come on… :-) you gotta be kidding me. The pope! who can slander the pope? False prophets? Who teaches worshiping the idols and relics? I was once a catholic, we even worshiped the angels. Which in Revelation the angel of God prohibits. Your somehow like steven (the one who commented below) although steven is worst or even much worst. You can still change if God will allow. Just have a change of heart. Faith comes from listening from the words of God. So listen to the one who speaks the words of God, not from the one who said that there is a purgatory and then suddenly retracted because it can’t be found in the scriptures.

      • Jeffrey Eugenio says:

        R.A. seems to be inconsistent come the rule of testing an argument. He believes that Bro. Eli is not the most slandered man in the history of Christianity; rather, it’s the pope because, for him, MCGI just sprouted in the 1970’s. Thus, he based his calculation to the length of time how much a man was slandered. He means to say the pope was already slandered even before MCGI exists, if we follow his line of argument.

        And R.A said that Bro. Eli is among the slanderers of the pope. How can Bro. Eli slander the pope if the pope existed even before Bro. Eli was born? Who’s the pope R.A. pertains?

        R.A.’s argument appears to be very ambiguous same as his name. His claim is a mere claim and cannot be proven rationally. He seems to forgot that what he’s doing is already a slander against Bro. Eli.

        If the Catholic Church is the one true church, then why is it that all over the world, the most notorious countries are those governed with Catholicism… wake up from your fanatical belief. Please use your coconut shell with unbiased logic. Be very investigative and keen in studying the doctrines of churches, read the bible, and pray to God for enlightenment. Your soul is at stake.

        Be thou not hard-headed.

    people saying bad things about you probably because you are saying bad things about them and their religion as the golden rules says dont do to other what they want do unto you. wag mong duruin ang kapwa mo gamit ang biblya. better yet teach them how God love them and how God save them. Stop comparing other religion may kanya kanyang paniniwala yan dapat respetuhin na lang natin sila. Let us remember that the bible is the Good news of the Lord dont make the Good news the bad news ok thanks

    • roy says:

      @angel

      Good News for everyone especially those who want salvation; but, bad news for those who refuses to accept the truth.

      How will people know the truth and about the evil doers if nobody speaks. Your thinking is also the thinking of corrupt people, even criminals in government uniforms. They have the common thinking of “mind your own business” , “do what you want and i’ll do what i want”. Criminals go around free because people are afraid to testify and tell the truth.

      Listen how a man of God reacted – Acts 13:9-10:

      9-Then Saul, better known as Paul, was filled with the Holy Spirit. He looked straight at Elymas
      10-and said, “You son of the devil! You are a liar, a crook, and an enemy of everything that is right. When will you stop speaking against the true ways of the Lord?

      If you need God in your life, accept his teachings.. everything is in the Bible.

    • Jenn Ji Hyun says:

      Bro. Eli’s just stating the truth. There is only one Bible so it can’t be that “may kanya kanyang paniniwala yan.” I’m just saying…

  18. If only people would judge TRUTHFULLY and without bias nor prejudice, they would come with a just conclusion.

  19. Toto Onato says:

    The tremendous influence of Bro. Eli’s detractors (particularly Manalo’s INC) over the justice system of the past Arroyo PH government enabled the relentless persecution and harassment against Bro. Eli wherein he had been forced to struggle through. The seeming helplessness of his situation all through those years had become a lingering legal nightmare to his lawyers. They realized the futility of lawyering for a client who, if not being subjected to the reign of terror was being deliberately humiliated and abused, systematically at that by the screwed judicial processes prevailing.

    Eventually, Bro. Eli’s advisers ended up with common suggestion for him to evade the serious threat to his life and freedom by way of an immediate travel abroad. This would enable him to find a foreign home where he could live safer and more freely rather than be unjustly incarcerated or worse, physically eliminated. On that basis did he flee? Not necessarily…but on the basis of sufficient biblical justifications and among others is as follows:

    “…and you will be hated by all because of my name. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. When they persecute you in one city, flee to the next; for truly I tell you, you will not have gone through all the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.” (Matthew 10:22-23)

  20. Kotawinters says:

    I think suffering is part of the package of being a prophet.

    It is painful but it must be borne.

    It is thorny but it must be carried while one is alive.

    And while suffering, one begins to understand more that the physical has to be given up because there is something more lasting:

    The spiritual.

  21. PUMP says:

    If all will be biblical, no one with an intelligent mind would believe those who are accusing bro. Eli as a bad person. The verse DANIEL 12:9-10 is a proof that bro. Eli is not a bad person because he has understanding of God’s words.

    To us, members of church of God, we are proud and thankful to God for having bro. Eli as our preacher!!!!

  22. Jesus Mason says:

    Glory be to God for having you and Bro Daniel, Bro Eli. Your intention to let us understand the words of God in the Bible have cleared our doubtful minds and I thank God for having called me and my wife including my children to the right path going to eternal life.

  23. Steven says:

    “I am the most slandered man in the history of Christianity”

    I am sure this post will be deleted but I feel I have honestly helped you by having you simply read it and reconsidering what you are stating.

    You honestly believe that you are the most slandered man in the history of Christianity?
    You are number one of the millions of Christians that have lived on this planet over the last 2,000 years??

    You place yourself above icons like Copernicus and Galileo?? That’s an extremely egotistical and self-aggrandizing statement to make.

    Perhaps you should re-familiarize yourself with these biblical verses:

    Proverbs 26:12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

    Matthew 23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

    Please reexamine what you have said. I’m sure it was written in the heat of the moment and that perhaps it was just your anger that clouded your judgement.

    • EYES says:

      Dear Mr. Steven,

      I’ve got your point but we must also remember that God judge us by our heart.

      do you believe that even a child needs a glorification from their parents.

      behind of the glorification is a conceit.

      and only understanding can override it.

      Patience which lead to humility is a virtue and it is rare.

      and only love is the catalyst of it.

      therefore no need to examine, only God can tell of what is in our heart.

        ….eyes’ post says it all, and it’s quite rationally clear.

        …bro eli claims he’s the most slandered in the history of christianity because of the technological advances this period in time we’re all in offers. pretty shallow if you ask me. coz Jesus has been slandered since day one, from paper to computer. through just plain chit chat to huge conventions. WITH OR WITHOUT TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES.

        ..i’ve read a similar post like this, pointing out bro eli’s reliance on modern advances which made him absurdly claim about being the most blah blah, but got deleted. i expect this post to be deleted as well.

    • Sol Villamin says:

      @Steven:

      Bro. Eli need not reexamine what he has said or written as you have suggested. Apparently, you are just blinded by your highly prejudicial attitude towards him. You failed to understand the context from where he is coming from with his factual assertion.

      Bro. Eli said and I quote: “I believe using mathematical and logical calculations that, I am the most slandered man in the history of Christianity. The defamations being thrown to my person ‘go beyond borders’. I mean beyond the borders of the land of my birth, the Philippines. By using the most efficient cyberspace technology that is however lenient in terms of charging responsibility and accountability, my detractors were able to popularize these lies beyond borders”.

      You should have been able to analyze, if you are an objective observer, that Bro. Eli is speaking here of unrestricted slander or defamation which is incomparable in terms of dissemination due to modern cyberspace communication. Hence, slander being committed against him “goes beyond borders” as he referred to the scope/reach of a damaging disinformation campaign against his character (via the internet). The effect of defamation against him is worldwide.

      His current predicament is definitely not the experience of people you have cited as examples who might have known slander only in their respective territory.

      Try to understand the facts and please reconsider your prejudicial attitude.

    • bambi says:

      Hey! Blubber mouth steven. Before you judge anyone be sure that you know the person you are judging. Have you known B.Eli since, so that you can say that he is exalting himself. Consider first all the statement above before you blubber your mouth.

      Brother Eli said :
      “I believe using mathematical and logical calculations” that, I am the most slandered man in the history of Christianity. (Don’t cut the statement)

      Go back to pre-school and learn how to count. Search and scan the blogs in here and see how and why B.Eli said what he just said.

      • Michael Murphy says:

        Hey Bambi! I don’t think that Christ would condone how you have been talking to Steven! Go back to manners school and learn how to be nice! Better yet, learn from Christ’s example how to treat those who come against you! Eli IS exalting himself above the Christ he claims to serve. Who but Jesus would be the most slandered person in all of Christian history?? He has over a 2,000 year head start on Eli! Sure Eli has been slandered but he is NOT the most slandered man in all of Christian history!

    • bambi says:

      Steven you’re included as one of the many people who slander B.Eli by words and by works. And I thank God for that, because you have been a part of what was said in : MATTHEW 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

      That is why B.Eli is truly blessed because of people like you. I thank God for you being a living proof of Gods words.

      How many people are there during the time of Galileo or whoever you can think that was slandered religiously? Was there a world of cyberspace before? Start counting.

    [DANIEL 12:9-10] And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND; BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND.

    Whatever others throw to this man, it’s still all clear that the teachings he understand in the Bible that he preaches are uncontested. The Bible is a witness to who the wicked really are. And just like Jeremiah whose teachings the wicked cannot prevailed to, this is all they could do:

    [JEREMIAH 18:18] Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.

    Some disagree, but they follow closely to disagree.

    Because at the back of their mind, they check that the world must still stick to lies and lies, and lies.

    When Jesus returns, everything will be revealed. See for yourself if the Roman Catholic faith with all its idol worship will survive.

    …i thought Jesus taught about humility. ‘you’re the most slandered in history?’ geez, so much for being humble….

    • Geline says:

      What Bro. Eli is trying to say here is that he is lucky for being slandered as it is going to happen to those people who wants to serve God. It’s not intended to exalt himself. What do people use to exalt themselves? Isn’t it power? Money? Glory from men? Popularity? Will you tell people that you were being defamed and insulted in every way possible to bring glory to your name? Will you tell people that “hey, i have criminal cases and is now being prosecuted and oh, I also have an anti-fan club!” to lift yourself up? This blog is to prove that what the Holy Scriptures is true. Try to see it.

      • juan dela cruz says:

        ..thanks.

      • Michael Murphy says:

        Nonetheless by calling himself the most slandered man in all of Christian history he has exalted himself above Christ and he DOES sound arrogant and proud.

    Brother Eliseo F. Soriano is the best scientist and mathematician I have ever knew.

    Scientist and mathematicians manipulate formulas and equations in order to
    derive a solution for a problem.

    about salvation.

    “May the Lord rebuke you all!”

Eli has said that he’s the most slandered person in the history of Christianity I do not blame you for you are not aware on what is happening in the religious arena most especially in our country. If other Christians were persecuted during the time of Christ and Apostle Paul, the persecution Bro. Eli has been receiving is more than what they have experienced. The pope is not the most slandered person just like what R.A. said. Who is slandering the pope by the way? Bro. Eli is merely telling the whole world that the teachings of the catholic church which is preached by the pope, priests and ministers is not Biblical and therefore not of God. To Steven, Bro. Eli is not saying he is better than the Christians who lived in the time of Jesus Christ and Apostle Paul. Who is Copernicus and Galileo by the way? Do they have a part in any religious matters? They are astronomers not religious leaders.

    My advice to all who do not believe and even hate Bro. Eli, try to listen to what he’s preaching and you will learn wisdom and teachings that NO OTHER RELIGIOUS LEADERS can. Try to have an open mind and pray to God that He may help you understand and see the truth.

    • Michael Murphy says:

      How can you say Eli is experiencing more slander/persecutions than Christians in the time of Christ and Paul? Were you there?? JESUS has received more slander than Eli ever will, as Jesus continues to receive it to this day! I don’t hate Eli but when he exalts himself above Christ I must speak up. Interestingly enough, i see my previous post did not survive the “moderation” process. And Oh, Copernicus and Galileo were both Christians who received heavy persecution for their faith and ideas.

      • The preacher clearly wrote “I believe using mathematical and logical calculations that, I am the most slandered MAN in the history of Christianity.”

        He is referring to his being a human being. This statement does not include Jesus Christ, who is clearly not a human being, but a God who came to earth in human form. I do not believe that Bro. Eli is exalting himself above Christ but rather, following Christ’s examples. He has started preaching at the young age of 18. From then to now, he has experienced not just slander but also physical harm from those who hate him.

        Unless you consider Christ as not a God, then that statement would definitely set off alarms.

        Bro. Eli, will not be the one to exalt himself over Christ. He has been defending Christ’s doctrines ever since he was a young lad.

    GONE ARE THE DAYS:
    – When I used to kneel in front of lifeless images, pictures, statues, of so called saints – that have eyes but cannot see; that have ears but cannot listen; that have mouth but cannot speak; that have feet but cannot walk, etc.
    – When I used to carry a rosary in my pocket, thinking it will keep me safe from troubles or accidents.
    – When I used to go with processions where people carry the lifeless images that cannot walk.
    – When I used to listen sermons from priests who read few verses the whole year round; I doubt if they read and especially understand the teachings in the Bible most esp. the popes – http://www.ewtn.com/library/papaldoc/jp2heavn.htm#Heaven.
    – When I used to make the sign of the cross before praying, every time I pass by churches; the same sign of the cross I made to drive away evil.
    – When I used to wonder which of the many different images will listen to my prayers.
    – When I used to pray the rosary when there is earthquake, in order pass to pass examinations, in order to find a job, in order to stay healthy, and anything.
    – Etc., etc., etc., ^_^.

    May the Peace of God be unto us all in this blog, to Bro Eli and Bro Daniel who are painstakingly doing their best to help spread God’s truth. Truth that is a pain to some, including R.A. , steven, and many others who can not understand the bible’s mystery. Your likes steven and company, are stone hearted by your own choice. People who slander Bro Eli are instruments of the devil who are out to do their worst in stopping the Christian efforts to repent, and embrace God’s teachings.

    Yes, like you we learned from our universities that there are always opposite opposing forces in this world. There is light versus darkness (for those who cannot understand the Truth), bad versus good. This principle of opposites exist and is a proof that because of Bro Eli’s crusade that has helped and save the many drunkards, gamblers, fornicators, criminals, and many sinners, the advocates of darkness, and all form of vices, will never stop maligning and scheming to put Bro Eli always in the bad light.

    We however, also big sinners before, but cleansed by baptism, know by heart that the forces of evil will go on maligning and trying everything to permanently ‘silence’ and kill Bro Eli. This we will never allow also. As a brotherly advice to you non-believers, just keep in touch and we will pray to God to give you the same chance given to most of us, May you wake up one morning, already changed, and one with us, Bro Eli and Bro Daniel in spreading God’s word.

    Thanks a lot of our mighty God because through preaching of brother Eli HIS Love manifest… we have hope in eternal life promised by God, what we need to do is to keep the commandments by means of listening of brother Eli’s preaching through the Bible we can attain the promised… Ecle. 12:13-14

  44. rqcemanes says:

    As Bro. Eli takes a stand for Christ, as a consequence sufferings is along the way, for a servant is no greater than his master.

    Surely, Christ feels the pain Bro. Eli feels while being persecuted by his wicked detractors.

    The early Christians was forced to leave Jerusalem because of persecution, thus, this is history that repeats itself. This is the reason why Bro. Eli is experiencing the same.

    But as Christians, we instead have to be thankful to God about it. God allows difficult circumstances in our lives so we can see God’s hands and sense His power.

    It is indeed working in Bro. Eli. Thanks be to God. All I wish for these days is that, may God keep Bro. Eli with us until Christ comes that we may be able to be with Him together and forever.

  45. Rams says:

    Bro. Eli, I hope you will survive the persecutions from wicked people nowadays…I pray that God will give you more strength to convince unbelievers about God’s existence..

    Because of your way of feeding us God’s words…we became more aware
    the importance of GOD’s words….the time come when I am hungry more for
    more understanding of these…

    Before, I hardly understand the bible and never enjoy reading
    but having known your way of presenting these words on us
    give me desire to seek the wisdom out from it… my favorite book now is the bible….
    every words in it is as precious as gold….and is worth dying for…thanks God
    for sending you in this world…..I believe that your ministry is as strong as
    God’s words though many people will push it down but there is
    always one that pull you Up and that is the True God…: )

The “Mr.Soriano” thing :-) makes me smile, for it sounds same as those person who slander B.Eli and weren’t able to succeed. You know why? Because B.Eli is truly a blessed man and God is with him.

      King James Version (KJV)

    You POOR PEOPLE…You all think and claim that Eli Soriano tells the TRUTH? Mr.Soriano is an Absolute Liar, he’s no different with the Pope, Manalo, E. Villanueva, Pat Robertson, Velarde at iba pang Religious Leader kuno..You didn’t even ask how the bible or the books of the bible were selected & compiled according to the interest of certain people who wanted to establish Jesus as a Deity. Also, there were so many ancient scrolls, gospels & books that were hidden, destroyed and concealed. That’s why we have “APOCRYPHA”, these were ancient writings or papyrus that were written the same time as probably the Dead sea scrolls or even the same time as the Gospels. If we are to believe the bible, Jesus had 12 apostles, but look at the new testament, you would see 4 gospels only..authors are: Matthew (some say he & Levi the tax collector are the same person), Luke (who also wrote Acts of the Apostles is not even an apostle & he just wrote his gospel because he felt good & he wants to inform Theopilus..Luke 1:1-4), Mark (his gospel is probably the oldest among the 4 gosples, but when you see Mark 16:9-20 it says that the oldest & most reliable manuscripts don’t have Mark 16:9-20—Gawa-gawa na lang ng kung sinong Demonyo ang last chapter ng Mark)..tsk tsk tsk..You should know that the people who selected the “Bible Canon” that you claim are catholics..There are so many books, gospels, papyrus, manuscripts that were destroyed & are hidden at the Vatican..Nung pinag-uusapan ng mga Early Church Fathers ninyo na mga Katoliko, gaya ni Origen, St.Augustine, St.Jerome, Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria, Eusebius, Athanasius atbp. kung anong mga libro ang isasama sa Canon, wla pa Dati Daan noon, wala pang Protestante at mga Born-Again Christians at kun ano-ano pang sekta ng Kristiyano noon..

    To hear Bro. Eli’s preaching is such a great fortune and to have him preaching in your own country is surely God’s way of visiting the people who seeks his salvation ! No one in the world has preached the words of God as sincere as Bro. Eli without fear of persecution !

    Thanks Be To GOD for sending someone like Brother Eli!

    but eliseo soriano does the same to other religious leaders. he’s calling them false prophet, gago(stupid), tarantado(fool), manloloko(deceiver), demonyo, anak ng diablo, gluttonous dogs and other slanderous name. these religions are just fighting back mr. soriano. do you think soriano, if you shut your foul mouth, you’d get sued and critizized by these religions?

    • Bro. Eli is clearly following the examples of Christ, therefore what has happened before is happening to him again. Christ warned the Jews about the hypocrisy of the Pharisees that’s why He was made to appear in a jury with false witnesses saying false accusations against him which is clearly a ploy to have him killed by Roman Law. Today, the enemies of true Christianity are doing the same.

    • Really? says:

      Please..do you really even know what you are saying?

      Tell us how do you call those preachers who preach that doesn’t even have any basis from the BIble?

      Bro Eli is just telling the truth. They slander him because they cant even think of anything what to throw back at him. Instead they tell LIES.

  56. Kotawinters says:

    R.A. shows in his post of June 4, 2011 at 1:09 am that he is confused. He is assuming that the older estalished religion must have pre-eminence in having the most slandered personality and that should belong to the Catholic church. Non sequitor. It doesn’t follow that length of time is equal to intensity or quantity of slander. The fact that the Roman Catholic Church was established earlier than MCGI doesn’t prove that.

    In saying “I bet my bottom peso if your church the MCGI’s interpretation of the whore in book of Revelation will not point a finger to the pope of Rome and the Catholic Church.” He/ she himself/herself accepts this fact, in the back of his/her mind perhaps.

    Truth to tell, better argue with a full name, a legit name, and your credibility will increase.

    Sorry, I agree with Bro. Eli Soriano’s claim: that he is the most slandered person today among all preachers. It is because he preaches the whole truth, cutting nothing out from the Bible. That is how brave he is; and that is also why people – mostly the false prophets and their minions – love to slander him.

    • Michael Murphy says:

      Kotawinters…Eli said he is the most slandered person in ALL OF CHRISTIAN HISTORY, not today among all preachers. The following is his quote: “I believe using mathematical and logical calculations that, I am the most slandered man in the history of Christianity.”
      I guess that means he thinks he is slandered more than Jesus himself, whom Eli claims to serve.

      • realidad... says:

        @murphy:

        i’ve been making the same explanations weeks/months ago, exactly the same thoughts as you have. and yes, i dont hate bro eli too, coz i really like the way he preach. but when he absurdly claimed about being the most slandered, it just went downhill from there. unfortunately his bigoted followers will just keep straying away from our main complaint, which is bro eli’s claim of being ‘the most’. they just ignore that part. i dont know mike, maybe they think bro eli is always right. nuts, indeed.
        …and moderators will delete posts if it does’nt serve them well.

  57. rqcemanes says:

    From the moment I’ve known Bro. Eli, I’ve learned that the justice of God indeed, is not hampered by the evil of men.

    Despite all the hardships, persecutions and solitude Bro. Eli is experiencing and even if he is mistreated by the world, the works of propagation continued to flourish and have let souls return to God’s fold because they were enlightened by Bro. Eli’s preachings.

    Thus, no amount of slanderous and libelous accusations that they throw towards Bro. Eli’s person could hinder the spread of God’s truth.

    For sure, many false preachers and leaders of fake churches will be adversely affected especially those who are only using the Bible to enrich themselves.

    Bro. Eli is the only person I’ve known today that knows what to say and when to say it. He always put his words and open his mouth in the right perspective.

    As a consequence, while many believes and repents, the children of Satan are worsened that they are now in all out demolition to prevent Bro. Eli in speaking the truth.

    I believe, the truth always prevail and Bro. Eli may suffer now, but he will be comforted by God. Go on Bro. Eli, we’ll always look up to you and pray for your safety always. We LOVE you.

  58. Michael Murphy says:

    Funny how my earlier post did not survive the moderation process…perhaps the truth hurts? Eli is exalting himself above the Lord Jesus Christ, whom he claims to serve. Jesus was attacked and slandered from the time of His birth and is still slandered today! With over a 2,000 year gap between Jesus and Eli, how can Eli be so arrogant as to say he is more slandered than Jesus??

    • rqcemanes says:

      You’re WRONG Michael Murphy.

      Bro. Eli is NOT exalting himself above the Lord Jesus Christ, it is YOU who DO NOT understand what you are saying. Try to pray for wisdom and understanding. Else, you will be blinded and deaf with what the truth really is.

      If you only know the true person of Bro. Eli, you will even love him for his humility. Bro. Eli believes that he is nothing compared to Christ. He always submits himself to God and the Lord Jesus as shown in his works and deeds.

      In fact, because of his wholehearted dependence on God, wisdom and knowledge are being poured on him incessantly and abundantly by the Holy Spirit which is very much manifest in his life. He is submissive and dependent only to God’s will.

      I bet, you may have recognized it but just ignored it because of pride, or you cannot accept that there is a Bro. Eli to touch your ego.

    • kotawinters says:

      Michael, it only goes to show that your Jesus is not the real Jesus of the Bible.

      You are full of many falsities feed you by false preachers.

      I think it is high time you listen to Bro. Eli and learn from him about the real Jesus, the powerful Son of God and not of the stone or wooden images of the Catholics. He was only MANIFESTED in the flesh for just a short time for a purpose. But HE is not a human being.

      From there, you will see that the population concerned in Bro. Eli’s talk of being most slandered does not include spirit beings.

      • Michael says:

        Kotawinters:
        re: September 10.
        it appears your understanding of the Bible is flawed since, of Christ, it says: Acts 4:10
        let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead…” How does a spirit being get physically crucified and raised from the dead?
        Also:2 John 1:7
        For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.
        2 John 1:6-8 (in Context) 2 John 1 (Whole Chapter)
        1 Timothy 2:5
        For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
        1 Timothy 2:4-6 (in Context) 1 Timothy 2 (Whole Chapter)
        Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. 8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

        Jesus was God but He was also man. He had the form of a man, got hungry, tired, thirsty, angry, frustrated, tempted by Satan and needed His quiet time to renew His relationship with His Father. This is not some sort of spirit being as you say but the Holy Son of God IN THE FLESH, thus subjected to the desires of the flesh. This is what the BIBLE says, not me.

        Incidentally, you intimated I am a Catholic or at least follow some Catholic dogma. (“I think it is high time you listen to Bro. Eli and learn from him about the real Jesus, the powerful Son of God and not of the stone or wooden images of the Catholics” your quote) I am not and do not.

      If you use realidad as your name, you should try to equal it.

      Jesus was only manifested in the flesh, but He is God, not a human being.

      If you have read closely the claim of this pastor, Bro. Eli, he is not claiming something other than that among all people now, he is most slandered.

      Place your eyes on the word SLANDERED, as your words have just added to the statistics.

      Your challenge >let’s see if this post gets deleted< can only mean you are not just highly opinionated, but that you jump to conclusions that only you want.

      It is better that you keep to yourself alone if you cannot tolerate truth. Go join the ranks of liars if that is your choice.

    • mateopage says:

      although the topic of the blog is all about the beauty of being slandered in the name of Lord Jesus Christ, you insinuated that Bro. Eli is comparing himself to Lord Jesus Christ, WHICH IS NOT! None on the post you can read that he exalted himself over Jesus. try to read again the post realidad.

      Is it not Bro. Eli is comparing himself (which is very odd- “slandered”) to Christians who lived from apostles’ time to present? Is Lord Jesus Christ, a christian? Or he is the one being followed that’s why the word “christian” begin? How come you came up that Bro. Eli is comparing his defame to Christ?

  60. roy says:

    Normally, when a person is being maligned, reviled, and persecuted, his enemies will say “good for you; you deserve it”.

    Imagine during the time of Jesus Christ and his apostles – his enemies feel offended hearing his name and his followers being out-cast or being looked down.

    Do you feel proud when someone accuses you?

    People, especially his enemies maybe laughing when Christ prophesied by saying:
    (Mt 24:24 [NKJV]) 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders …
    (Matthew 7:22 [NKJV])22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

    Who would have thought from among those people that in the future many will be proud using the name of Christ, and especially his enemies?

    Now, the detractors feel that Bro. Eli is exalting himself… and maliciously injecting into the minds of people by comparing Jesus Christ.

    To the detractors, what do you understand by:
    1. “using mathematical and logical calculations”?
    2. “go beyond borders”; “beyond the borders of the land”?
    3. “using the most efficient cyberspace technology”?

    • kotawinters says:

      roy, It would require one to be true to oneself when one asks questions needing to be answered also with what is true. The way you constructed your comment already jumps to a conclusion that does not come from the blog of Bro. Eli.

      Bro. Eli comparing himself with Jesus Christ? He was saying that Christ was slandered too. That is where the comparison was, if at all there was a comparison. You fail to grasp the intended meaning perhaps from failure to correctly appreciate the nature of Jesus Christ. Christ is God, not human being, and therefore no true comparison was being made. The author of the blog mentioned that Christ too was being slandered. Therefore, Bro. Eli was not saying in effect that he is greater than Christ.

      By mentioning Christ being slandered, Bro. Eli was finding comfort in that, although that was happening to him (the slanders), even a God was being slandered too.

      Refer to the title of the blog again and try to get the intended tone: The author, instead of sulking, finds comfort that even Christ, a God, was being slandered. So, what is that to him now that he is just a human being? That is the meaning of the author, if you can grasp the whole thing.

      • mateopage says:

        Bro. Eli said: I believe using mathematical and logical calculations that, I am the most slandered MAN in the history of Christianity.

        Just like Kotawinters explanation above, Bro. Eli compared not himself to Lord Jesus Christ in terms of slandering as Michael Murphy insinuated. Michael sees Lord Jesus as a MAN, yet he is not. Is it logical to compare a GOD to a MAN? I do not think so.

        Mathematically and logically speaking, who among you can cite a Christian that is slandered more than Bro. Eli Soriano, slandered beyond his birth land? Certain R.A. says the pope. Are popes true Christians? They are untouchables! Galileo? Copernicus? A catholic and a Lutheran, although great-mind they are but not slandered as Christ followers.

        The fact is Bro. Eli understands that what is happening to him is also happened to Jesus and to people of God. The slandering thing that he experience as follower of God is LUCK and BLESSINGS and he should worry not.

        And this is our luck as well.

      • Michael Murphy says:

        The Bible says that Jesus was indeed a man…the God-man. Philippians 2:5-8 clearly states that. “Being born in the likeness of men, and being found in human form…”Jesus became a man in order to be he perfect sacrifice for our sins. If you say Jesus was only God, then you deny His humanity. Jesus was born on this earth, was hungry, thirsted, was tired, felt sadness, died, bled, all these things that humans experience. Christ took on all the essential attributes of humanity (Heb. 2:14, 17; 4:15)
        I’m really not sure where “luck” plays into this, since we are told to trust God for all things and nothing happens by chance or “luck” as you would say. It is simply arrogant to think that one is the most slandered person in the history of Christianity. Has Eli been around for all of Christian history? NO! Thus he has no real basis to work from, since he has no idea how many times Christians throughout history have been slandered.

      • Michael Murphy, how could a mere man be a perfect sacrifice for equally human beings? You should have asked that from the very beginning so that you wont come to a faulty conclusion. Unless you settle that, you cannot advance in your reasoning to attempt to solve for other issues.

      • mateopage says:

        Hi Michael Murphy,

        I’m sorry you misunderstood my point in using the word “luck” that misled you of thinking of such. Actually if your going to get the context of my comment it would be meant “gain” or “profit”. Slandered in the name of Christ is a profit (luck) and blessings for Christ’s follower for it was written that they were blessed. Luke 6:22

        You said and I quote “It is simply arrogant to think that one is the most slandered person in the history of Christianity. Has Eli been around for all of Christian history? NO!”.

        Bro. Eli may not around for all the Christians history, but the defamation he got that you can count and still counting is a fact. Try to search the net and you will see why he said that.

        Anyway, I hope you see also not the numbers in this blog, but the truth that he is trying to explain to God’s followers, that defamation for Christ sake in this dispensation is a blessing.

        Thanks be to God.

        Mateopage I appreciate your courteous reply and the explanation of your context for the word “luck”. In my context luck has never been attributed to anything spiritual. I agree with you (as we both do with the Apostle James) that it to be a joy when we encounter various trials. The Gospel of Matthew records Jesus saying that if the world hates you, it is because they hated Me first…I have no doubt that Eli has been slandered much (I have read much of it) but my difficulty is with him broadcasting that fact. Just let the works speak. I feel Eli could have encouraged people without seemingly have put himself on a pedestal. You have to understand that is how it looks from “outside” if you will.
        Thank you again for your friendly reply. One of the few I have received.

        Michael Murphy,

        Bro. Eli have many things to boast for if he want to (achievements for examples), but because he knew the doctrines he did not do that, the virtue he is also teaches to the congregation. If he boast for his achievements (which is Biblically wrong), most probably i will also ask ‘why’ but he did not. I cannot understand why people like you is seeing this article in a negative view despite of the facts that he is the most slandered person in Christian’s history, all over the net.

        You said: I feel Eli could have encouraged people without seemingly have put himself on a pedestal.

        By following Bro. Eli, more probably you will learn that he indeed encourage people because of the ‘good news’ he brought to them. This article gives inspiration and not putting himself to pedestal. I hope you see the deeper meaning of this blog- inside and out. The ‘good news’ he announces in every places he could reach with God’s help is the main factor of many converted souls nowadays. And the works speak. His works speak (God’s work) that is why there are too many slanderers he encountered.

        Moreso, as others said in here – Lord Jesus is not a ‘man’. He is God that was made flesh. (John 1:13-14). There is no such thing as ‘God-man’. What is this, a half-god and a half-man’ like Hercules of Greek mythology? We can always debate (negate) something that we cannot grasp using our own understanding, but we also should understand that we must do further investigation and let us be open-minded to weight in things. Have you tried to investigate and weigh in things (preachers and the doctrines they taught for examples)?

        Unsolicited comment for you that will lead you to understanding with God’ help: Try to listen to Bro. Eli, forget your pride.

        Michael Murphy,

        YOU SAID: “And I DON’T believe Eli is the most slandered man in the history of Christianity because there is no objective way to PROVE it!”

        I SAY: That is expected if you don’t know Bro. Eli Soriano well. But for people who witnessed his manner of living, we testify, it’s true. It breaks our heart to see or hear people crafts false statements against him. And all those comes from deep angst against the truth that he preaches.

        I wish you know him well. I wish you listen to his preachings. I wish you peace.

        Michael,

        Jesus is not a man He is God! Your ignorance led you to blaspheme against the nature of God’s Son.

        You quoted Phil 2:5-8 but only emphasized on 2:7 with a wrong interpretation which makes all your succeeding pointless phrases worst!

        It is not arrogant to think that Bro. Eli is the most slandered man in the history of Christianity. You have to think that relatively speaking he really is. The advent of technology and the prophesy that the wicked shall do wickedly should suffice you to believe what he claims he is.

        @ “the Whit” I did NOT blaspheme and I am not speaking in ignorance. Let me then use Scripture again to show my point. If Christ was not also man, how was it he was born in human flesh? (Matt 1:18, Luke 1:31) Matthew 26:38 says Jesus had a human soul, as does Luke 23:46. John 1:14 clearly says Jesus became flesh and dwelt among us.
        Jesus never ceased to be God but became God in human flesh and thus willingly bound Himself to the limitations of the human body, (hunger, fatigue, sorrow, thirst) which included death. Hebrews 2:17-18 tells us that Jesus had to be made like His brothers in every respect. Jesus had to die as a sinless sacrifice in order to secure our salvation. He needed to shed His BLOOD for the forgiveness of sins. Hebrews 2 also says that Jesus suffered when he was tempted,so he is able to helo those who are being tempted. How does Jesus get tempted if he is not wearing the mantle of human flesh? His flesh was human, His spirit Divine and thus He was able to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins. Plus He was resurrected in a body (Acts 3:15; 2 Tim 2:8).
        How does one get resurrected without a body? How could Thomas have put his fingers in Christ’s wounds if they were not in a body? Read your Bible, “the Whit” and you will see what the Bible says on this. I am simply giving you the verses: here are some more for you to search out and examine: Gal 4:4-5; Rom 6:15; Luke 2:52; Matt 8:20, 16:13; John 19: 34; 1 John 4:2; Luke 2:21; Luke 24:39-43. The last passage is Jesus talking to His disciples asking them why they doubt their senses. “For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.” From Jesus’ own mouth. There are many more Scriptures that show Jesus was God made flesh in order to be the perfect sacrifice for sins.
        You need to clear up your ignorance of the Word fo God before accusing others of such a thing a blasphemy!
        And I DON’T believe Eli is the most slandered man in the history of Christianity because there is no objective way to PROVE it!

    Michael,

    You have to understand Michael where I am coming from, your previous post said “The Bible says that Jesus was indeed a man…the God-man” is there a verse in the bible where we can read that “Jesus was indeed a man” and “the God-man? indeed means undeniably, without any question.

    My apologies for calling you as such because I based my response from your previous post since my clear conscience could not fathom that Jesus was undeniably a man.

    So here, in your recent post your stand as “Jesus never ceased to be God” is correct then you followed it with “but became God in human flesh” is wrong, Why? wasn’t He God yet when he came in human form? that He has to wait to be in human flesh before he became God is how it looks from the outside.

    In the end, all the verses that you mentioned implicitly states that Christ is “indeed a man”… Study the bible Michael, so you’ll know that Christ is God even before the world began.

    We are not forcing you to believe that Bro. Eli is the most slandered man in the history of Christianity because this blog is the objective way to prove it.
