Allow Me to Correct a Reader

For the sake of justice, fairness, and truth, I oblige myself in this venue and even in my Tweeter account to correct comments that purport to favor me. I disagree with what Bro. Bennieson posted:
“Bro. Eli Soriano, is the true son of God. He preach the words of God in every details of the bible. To God be the Glory”
Brother, allow me to correct you: I am not the “true Son of God”, but the Lord Jesus is.
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
So also Christ glorified not himself to be made a high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee.
Notice that God the Father did not pronounce this even unto one of all the angels!
For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
Let me say that I may be considered “a” son of God through adoption.
THE ROMANS 8:15-16
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
But I am not “the” true Son of God.
The true Son of God is the Lord Jesus Christ!
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elijah; and others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
Anyone who claims that he is the Son of God with the definite article “the” is a liar. Let us look at this claim.

• Official turnover of power from the Father to His Son
When the Bible said that love of money is “a” root of all evil, it is precisely true because love of money is not “the” root of all evil.
I TIMOTHY 6:10 (ASV)
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil: which some reaching after have been led astray from the faith, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
It is true that love of money can be “a” root of all evil, but it will not be precisely true to say that love of money is “the” root of all evil.
Satan became evil not because of love of money, but because he coveted power that does not belong to him! He wanted to be equal with God.
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
When he became evil, money was not yet in use. If money can be a root of all evil, the truth is there are other roots of evil aside from love of money. When the Bible said that money is “a” root of all evil it is an irrefutable truth. My point is, even the use of articles in a sentence greatly affects the truth!
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Someone claiming to be the Son of God like Apollo Quiboloy is not telling the truth, but is deceiving people.
The Lord Jesus, according to the Bible, is the only begotten Son of God. For anyone to claim such an honor, their glory is not glory but shame.
It is not good to eat much honey: so for men to search their own glory is not glory.
In view of the foregoing, may I advise Bro. Bennieson, and all the others who complement me, to be careful in their choice of words.
Brother Eli will remain to be an unprofitable servant!
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
To God and His Son Jesus Christ be the glory!
