Feeding the Spiritually Starving People with God’s Word from the Bible

This is a response to the questions posted on: www.godisimaginary.com 

May it be understood by my readers that I am answering questions even of imaginary people,.  to give them the benefit of the doubt, on the presumption that other mislead people who has brain enough to understand, might be having the same question.  Of course, I will be using the Bible as the main authority for my answers, because I believe in the God who said these words.  The questions go like these:  

“Why are there so many starving people in our world?”

“Why would a loving God be worried about someone getting a raise; while at the same time, ignoring the prayers of the ‘desperate’ and the ‘innocent’ children?”

The question is being asked to intelligent and educated Christians.  I do not claim that I am an intelligent, nor an educated Christian having any college degree, but I am a Christian, and I am proud to be one!  As much as they are expecting answers from intelligent Christians, we must presume that these people are also intelligent.  And if they are intelligent, using only 5-15 percent of their brain power, they should have discovered the fact and the true reason why there are so many starving people on our world today.  Is it not foolishness to blame an imaginary God, whom they think does not exist, for the starvation of countless people in the world?  If they are intelligent, which I perceive they are not, and considering that they believe in science and statistics, and they do not believe in God, it will be intelligent, fair, and just to look for scientific reasons and realities, rather than blaming God which they believe does not exist.  Foolish, is it not?  But I do not wonder because there really are foolish people; and these are those that do not believe in the existence of God.

(Psalms 53:1)  The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.”

Statistics tells us that there are now about eight hundred million starving and malnourished people on earth. 

World Hunger and Poverty: How They Fit Together

• 854 million people across the world are hungry, up from 852 million a year ago.

• Every day, almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes–one child every five seconds. http://www.bread.org/learn/hunger-basics/hunger-facts-international.html


Also, more than one billion people who are overfed and obese.


Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with more than 1 billion adults overweight – at least 300 million of them clinically obese – and is a major contributor to the global burden of chronic disease and disability. Often coexisting in developing countries with under-nutrition, obesity is a complex condition, with serious social and psychological dimensions, affecting virtually all ages and socioeconomic groups.      http://www.who.int/dietphysicalactivity/publications/facts/obesity/en/

This simple research (simple because you can just ‘google’ it or you can just even ‘stumble upon’ it) tells us the scientific fact why there are so many children that starve to death.  Instead of blaming God, which to them is imaginary, they should have posted an appeal in the internet to people who, like them, do not believe in God because God said that believers should feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, and be compassionate to the plight of the poor. 

(Matthew 25:32-41) “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels…”

 Even enemies of a believer should be taken care for. 

(Matthew 5: 44) “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you…”

And in Romans 12:20 “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink…”

Had they believed God, not one person on earth would starve to death.  The conclusion is:  Why are there so many starving people on earth?  The answer is:  Because of those people who do not believe in God — like YOU! 

Greed in money, wealth, power, and everything earthly is the cause of all evil in this world.  It is not God’s fault. 

(1 Timothy 6:10-11) “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.”

It is unfair and impertinent to blame God which, for you, does not exist. Why not rather look for reasons behind realities?  It only takes one man, it will not need two (2) to feed and house all these unfortunate people.  The richest man on earth, or even the second richest man, if he acts in compliance with God’s commandment can alleviate the sufferings of all poor people on earth! 


According to recent statistic, the earth can sustain the needs of 10 billion people at a time; and that idea comes from an intelligent and real God.

It is widely agreed that enough food is produced worldwide to feed a global population of 8-10 billion people.  http://www.vegansociety.com/html/environment/land/

 (Genesis 1:27) “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

In conclusion, I appeal to my readers for prayers so that these people may be enlightened, and be more intelligent and smart (more, if they have some) to act and think scientifically with prudence; not to blame somebody which, for them, does not exist and imaginary. And find ways to feed and clothe one of those starving children on earth.


Praise be to God. AMEN.

  1. AMEN!!!!!!!

    There will come a day when all knees in heaven and on earth will bend before the Holy One of God, whether they like it or not! And to them that acknowledge His power now will do it in glorious cheer, but those who choose otherwise, in tears and in trembling. And lo! It’s too late!

    by a believer of the God in the Bible Who Bro. Eli preaches

  2. The best answer I’ve ever heard to the usual questions I heard from my students.
    This site is really of value. We should invite all people to visit this site.

  3. very well said!


    i really believe that Bro Eli Soriano is a messenger of God…


    please dont tell ERANIO MANALO… I might get fired… ok? ssD

  4. Very well written Bro Eli. Praise be to God for giving use someone like you.

    And to those who do not believe in God, I have one question for you … How can you blame someone who, for you, does not exist? Now that is stupid.

    • When people blame God, they do not blame ‘him’, they blame those who justify unrightful things in his name…they blame the problems that his figurative invention has caused people to create…why can’t we all be good people because it’s moral and good? Why do we have to be good because God says so? What are we, 5 year olds behaving because we’re afraid of being punished? If, hypothetically speaking, God was proven to not exist, would you still be a good person? Or would this demotivate you? AKA: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE RELIGIOUS TO BE A GOOD PERSON. There are saints and demons on both sides of the spectrum.

  5. Theres only few people in earth have the heart to feed and clothe the starving children/people who do it heartfully, Some pretenders (i.e. Religios Group) clame that they help this people, but the truth is they just do it for popularity, and that people may know that they are kind and good, but deep inside is a face of clown. Why do i say so? after the program which only last for one day, they go to other places of the same people, but what happen on the previous starving people? they are starving. The only religion i know that really help this people, keeping their hand at reach is Church of God lead by Bro. Eli Soriano. Keep on reaching people all over the earth!!!

  6. There’s really no one who can feed the spiritual starving people with God’s word from the bible, except from bro. Eli Soriano. Why? no other preacher in the word has the way of preaching of bro. Eli, simply because there is only one Gods sent preacher to preach the word of God in one generation, and simply because Gods wisdom accompany him.

  7. Yes Bro. eli is absolutely right and to completely knockdown the story:

    “Why are there so many starving people in our world?”

    Imaginary group please refer to mathew 15:32-39 in which Jesus feeding 4,000 people by using only 7 loaves and a few little fishes but still it accomodate and surpluses through sharing and faith of GOD.

    “Why would a loving God be worried about someone getting a raise; while at the same time, ignoring the prayers of the ‘desperate’ and the ‘innocent’ children?”

    Imaginary group please refer to mark 10:13-16 — whether this children will be dead or alive they have already assurance in heaven.

  8. no one in this whole wide world that has a heart as big as Bro. ELI_ there is only one organization i know in this world that has the courage to help others to reach them, and that is CHURCH OF GOD INTERNATIONAL. even they are lacking in financial support, Bro. ELI is doing the very best that he could offer to mankind with the help of GOD. through the grace of GOD this organization is doing the best of all the best with GOD’S support_

  9. Yes you’re right.
    Here in West Africa I have’nt heard anyone preached like him.
    He’s The Man ,The leader, The One and The only Sensible Preacher in our time sent by God.

  10. He’s the greatest brother and at the same time father to me, whenever he preached I feel that he’s always guiding me…he loved with unconditional love…we miss you so much…uwi ka naman kahit minsan…tapos balik ka na lang uli sa bawat bansa na dapat mo pang i-guide…kahit anong sabihin nila eto na ang malapit na wakas…kung ayaw nilang maniwala…dios pa rin ang magtatakda ng ating wakas…

  11. Had they believed God, not one person on earth would starve to death. The conclusion is: Why are there so many starving people on earth? The answer is: Because of those people who do not believe in God — like YOU!


    God through Bro.Eli is not only feeding the spritually starving world, through God’s help he can make the blind see and the lame walk through the OLD PATHS! modern day miracle!

    • Please come up with your own conclusions before unconditionally taking in those of others. There are starving children in the world not because of people who don’t believe…but because of people who lack MORALITY…and they exist among believers and non-believers. I know many believers who are good because it’s what God says…they me “if you don’t believe in God, why don’t you go around killing people?” Why? Because I’m a good person. If God were proven to not exist, would you still be a good soul? I know I already am and nothing can break my faith in MORALITY…whether it’s God’s existence or lack of it. Can you say the same for yourself?

      I know many non-believers who contribute greatly to humanity’s well-being…as well as many racist, misogynistic people who believe in God. There are good and bad people no matter where you look.

      True goodness is not always correlated to your religious beliefs- it should be a part of you and not be directed by God.

      Please don’t hate on these kinds of comments…I’m just trying to offer insight and take away direct blame people keep putting on one another…

  12. Blame! oh, yes,sad and unfortunate these almost mere human in knowledge,act and think as though they are truly PRO poor, PRO people and ARE NOT! is it not true that you knew THE NAME “GOD” in the Bible? is it true that in The Bible GOD teaches humanity to live a life according to GOD’s LAWS? What right have you to BLAME and say of SOMEONE’s Rights when you don’t have the slightest knowledge of HIM,GOD! is it true that you act against the very law of men speaking evil of someone in HIS absence? Well SHAME on you! The very GOD who “CREATED” man and acknowledge not HIS Divine Authority takes responsibility to BLAME and PUT GOD on TRIAL! i appeal to your almost near human knowledge and ability to comprehend WORDS and VOCABULARY that i know you do have, to please,TAKE RESPONSIBILITY to read THE Holy Scriptures,”THE BIBLE”! not statistics!
    The next time you speak against of SOMEONE’s Rights,have THE FULL knowledge of HIM! Be responsible as you do in your “CASE OF BLAME”!

  13. Imagination is never considered an evidence and never will it stand in any case. However it will in IMAGINARY TRIBUNAL! Insisting PERVERTS persevere in doing what is contrary in nature. Nothing shall come out pure from a defiled subject!

  14. isn’t it great to hear the real reason behind what is happening these days. it is my first to be fulfilled with such simple explanation. bro. eli is right that there is God.

    and to those people who does not believe in God imagining his not real this is a message for you!!
    for a man blame a God whom he considered not in existence is crazy!! for them to accuse someone they didn’t even know i think they must consult a physician immediately.


    • Once again….non-believers don’t blame God….they blame the hate and problems people have caused by believing in him….For example…an non believer would blame God for your insulting comments of them as a non-believer because had you not believed in God, you and the non-believer would be getting along just fine while focusing on being good people for the sake of HUMANITY and not GOD.

  15. this is the very first time i’ve seen the straight answer to the questions i had since childhood it is very striking and very clear to all people who are smart and atleast know how to use common sense but may be nonsense to all those stupid, impertinent and imaginary people like the one who was mocking and blaming God(which for them is imaginary) for all those bad things that happen on earth, funny thing is, he’s blaming someone who, for him does not exist hahahahha whoever you are…. your a total freaked!

  16. and now we are enlightened…
    thanks be to God in the heavens.
    i still up to now is caught in awe by how God really works amazingly through the answers i have just read.
    these biblical and scientific facts that coincide with each other are absolutely right. and why have not anyone ever thought of this?
    it only goes to show one glaring truth again: GOD is with us.

  17. many has tried to answer that question and i think that the points raised are almost similar.
    what strike me is the way the answer was presented. i find it vividly clear and straight to the point. something that will tickle the brain and strike the soul.
    Thanks be to God!

  18. This particular person forgets or maybe because of his nature it is never in his mind that whatever those intelligent or fortunately rich, capable people have like money and everything on earth that those things they have all came from the imaginary GOD they are blaming. He might never realize why computers and all high technology are used by God to reach out hard-hearted people like him! I pray that someday you’ll open the Bible and discover everything wonderful thing for yourself… Thank God for giving us a sensible preacher and for the blessings you gave Bro Eli in building this site ..



  19. i hadn’t head, read, known such INTELLIGENT,SCIENTIFIC ANSWER.. and surprisingly this Man,from whom i heard/known the most sensible answer said that he is not educated nor had a college degree..huh! then whose words would those be? where in his brain cell did he get his answer? Anyway whatever.. i believed this mr.ELi Soriano, betting on him to destroy the mountain of trash, that these people behind the “god is imaginary”, is spreading the net…
    More Power Mr. Soriano!!
    que DIOS te bendiga!

  20. i’m a new bible reader and its good i have read such article from bro.eli soriano.
    mabanganib ang kanyang ginagawa dahil tiyak masasaktan ang mga masisibang mayayaman lalo na mga taga malalaking organisasyon at simbahan

    sana dumami ang tulad ni bro. eli soriano
    Sa Dios lamang ang ating pag-asa para maibsan ang kagutoman na ito.


  21. The conclusion is: Why are there so many starving people on earth? The answer is: Because of those people who do not believe in God — like YOU!
    This is BRO ELI’S answer….to those stupid question of a fools..
    as the bible says in PSALMS 53:1….FOOLS do not beleive in GOD..that’s why they don’t even know the meaning of the word LOVE,and that includes FEEDING THE POOR…as Bro Eli said,if only all the people in the world beleive in GOD and obey His WORD….HUNGER will be absent in this planet….
    To you Bro. Eli Soriano,I thank God for sending you in our time,…… GOD BLESS!!!!!!!

  22. People who are physically and spiritually starving need not fear. GOD thru HIS Messenger Bro Eli and Bro Daniel are doing everything to show to others how to help the less fortunate and the poor. Inspite of the big financial burden, the MCGI leadership has maintained its feeding programs in the slum areas of Payatas, Quezon City, Baseco in Tondo, Manila, and in many other rural and urban areas. Bro Daniel has personally managed free medical clinics for the poor, free legal assistance for the oppressed and the poor , and recently has embarked on a free bus ride for the poor within metro manila. Tru Bro Eli’s guidance Bro Daniel has more programs designed for the poor. On the spiritual side, among the many churches and congregation, it is only in the MCGI that the prophecy in JEREMIAH is fulfiulled. JEREMIAH 30:19-AND OUT OF THEM SHALL PROCEED THANKSGIVING AND THE VOICE OF THEM THAT MAKE MERRY; AND I WILL MULTIPLY THEM, AND THEY SHALL NOT BE FEW; I WILL ALSO GLORIFY THEM, AND THEY SHALL NOT BE SMALL. Even with the continuous vilification drive by leaders of fake churches in connivance with some ‘captive’ and beholden government officials,to discredit and malign Bro Eli and the church; harrassment, filing of false and ‘manufactured’ criminal cases, to the extent of hunting Bro Eli for liquidition, the church continue to grow almost everyday. Bible Expositions in many places in the Philippines and arround the world is a daily occurrence. As prophesied, THANKSGIVING every week is offered to the LORD worldwide, with PRAYER MEETINGS, and WORSHIP Services. These are but few of the proofs that THE CHURCH OF GOD is doing its mission of FEEDING THE SPIRITUALLY [and the Physically] STARVING PEOPLE WITH GOD’S WORDS. Just last September 29 and 30th, the two days THANKSGIVING TO GOD celebration was again held worldwide with success and joy. Lets all help to the best that we can do for Bro Eli and Bro Daniel to overcome the difficulties , and continue with GOD;S instruction to them. GOD IS GREAT, GOD IS ALMIGHTY.

  23. God have been continually and adequately provided for man’s need, but it is not enough because of man’s greed.
    The poor in the eyes of many are pityful…… but in truth when the time comes… they are more blessed as the balance of God’s Justice tilts more towards them for on earth they have already suffered and if they persevere till the end…. salvation is theirs… no more hunger and thirst, no more tears and pain…as promised by Our Heavenly Father. AMEN

    • Does God give birth to you, feed you, clothe you, give you shelter, encouragement, sacrifices so you can have what you “NEED”? Thank your parents for all this….and thank yourself for your achievements and strength in life.

    • Exactly! However there were still times that I can’t help but question God why such painful things or hardships is happening to me, I know that I don’t have any right to question God because I always believe that He will not allow such things to happen for no purpose and that purpose is for my own sake. God works in mysterious ways, sometimes it is much better to just let Him take care of our lives than to live the other way around. Because God’s promises cannot be broken. This is the core reason why everytime I tend to question God or feel unfair about what’s happening to me, I hold on to his words, and believe that He’ll not forsake me.

  24. 05 Sept. 2007

    Dear Bro. eli,

    You are really a true messenger of God – the almighty Father.

    The world needs you! … Please keep on telling the world that they need to turn and grasp the word of God while there’s still time little time left for this world.

    We thank God the Father for letting you to be our messenger.

    To God be the glory!

  25. Just show mercy & no one will starve to death.

    He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.

    Proverbs 19:17

  26. Ministering to the world is the most important task we have been given as christians, and tackling questions like these is difficult but vital. However, insulting the intelligence of nonbelievers is only going to shut them off to the message of Christ. I would hope that as a community Christians would act more like Christ, after all, isn’t that the point! WHy don’t we try embracing others as we minister to them rather than insulting them? WE ARE ALL SINNERS…WE HAVE ALL FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD…INSULTING NONBELIEVERS IS A SIN.

    • One question…if non-believers agreed to ‘cooperate’ with believers for the sake of morality and humanity without the notion of God ANYWHERE…would you agree????? Are you being good just because it’s good or because you want to convert non-Christians?

    • (Psalms 53:1) “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.”

  27. Let me start out by saying that I am a Christian and I don’t think you answered the question very effectively. That is, if I were not already a Christian you wouldn’t have swayed my opinion. By saying non-Christians are responsible for world hunger because God’s command is to feed the hungrey insults the hundreds of millions of non-believers who work to fight hunger as well. To supposed Bill Gates could single-handedly fix world hunger is a laugh. He could for perhaps weeks or months and then he’d be broke as well and hunger would rage on.

    The information on the vegan website is more effective. If people ate grains and veggies instead of meats, the land used to craze cattle for meat ingestion could feed the world. But you left that out.

    The question in everyone’s mind is if God promises that you don’t have to worry about clothing or food, yet millions starve to death each year, then why? Obviously God knows that Bill Gates and you and I aren’t going to give up all our possessions to feed the hungrey, yet he promises that none will go without their basic needs. The godisimaginary website doesn’t blame this on God, but they do say if you believe in the word of God in the bible he clearly isn’t fullfilling it.

    In the old testament he sent manna from heaven to feed his flock. They truly didn’t have to worry about their next meal (of course they did anyway). Why not a similar program today? The poor Ethiopian kids with swollen stomachs would probably love to wake up to some food.

    What about healing? The bible says if anyone among you is ill, have the priest pray for him and the elders sprinkle you with oil and you will be cured. Guess what? Millions have tried it and it didn’t work. Why? I’m not trying to make a mockery of Christianity, but these are the hard questions I get asked everyday as a Christian and would love to see some decent answers apart from blaming the non-believers. I know very few “vegan” Christians. We’re no more part of the solution than the non-believers.

    Anyway, I’m sure you can do way better than to put the blame back on the non-believer for world hunger. The last non-Christian that asked me that question worked for the food bank.

    • then what about the free education – where tuition, uniform , books, dorm room is given for free?can other congregation provide it? yes others can provide but with
      limitation you still have to pay.

      How about the transient center that gives free stay and free food to both and accept non-members and non-believers? can other congregation provide provide it? maybe there is/are but limited only to members –

      how about the daily free medical mission? can others provide it? yes, but not daily.

      how about the home for the aged and for the widows and widower? can other congregation provide for their members? yes maybe — i wont talk about this i might get busted by someone :p

      how about the free educational bus and the free bus ride? can other congregation provide? there is but it’s own by a school and not by a congregation, maybe there are others out there but i haven’t heard of it

      then the payment for the worldwide use of the transmission broadcasting — too expensive scary — the amount to be paid is sooo oh my God will make you faint

      the free bible and free meal to everybody who attend the exposition? can other congregation be able to feed such numbers of people??? if there is they wont give free meals they wont give free bibles they will just let then in but never feed them, and even ask them ka-ching!

      the church of God was able to maintain providing for all of it’s members and to others who are in need — can other congregation do this? i don’t think so! they will get bankrupt in a blink of an eye

      Bro. Eli’s congregation was threathened, him falsely accused — i was surprise to read that there’s a report from the net that the interpol has issued warrant of arrest to Bro Eli. funny..
      they will do everything just to shut him up T_T how persistent….

      Bro Eli started the those free stuffs in the philippines and soon to the world ^_^

  29. Bro. Eli
    Keep up the good work, even though I’m not yet a member of the Church of God I believe that you say is true and biblical. There is no other preacher like you keep up the good work and finish the fight. May God Bless you more & more.

  30. Man, you are an example of a false prophet, leaves the scene before Jesus (Yeshua) come and let ‘you burn in the lake of fire and brimstone

  31. Why are there so many starving people in our world?”

    “Why would a loving God be worried about someone getting a raise; while at the same time, ignoring the prayers of the ‘desperate’ and the ‘innocent’ children?”

    I believe that this two questions are signs that they (the person who make the question and the people he/she is referring to, the starving and that “desperate and innocent children”) believe in God and they are just looking for truthful answers. They are all hungry and thirsty for truth… We are all loved by God and are blessed equally… People who are abundant in money and food and everything in this world are there; these starving, desperate and innocent children are there… to build, to share, to give LOVE, JOY, HOPE… Richness is made, poverty is made for us all to learn and realize the PURPOSE of God WHY both are made… God works in mysterious ways! There is no one to be praise but the Higher Power! We are all made with love… Let us be thankful that we have feeling about both, and merciful love we can offer to those BOTH… because both rich people and hungry with material things to exist on Earth needs love and prayers from us all who understand and believe that there is God!

  32. One reason why world peace is absolutely impossible is believers always condemn non- believers as fools and pervert because even if they do the same charity and humanitarian works, just because you’re not of the same christian sect or religion, you are not reliable as human to be righteous as them…i still believe, God knew who has a good heart and good deeds regardless of your religion. Bro. eli is a humble preacher, but i find his followers more than him arrogantly speaks against people whose not of their same faith. Just because you’ve learn a lot from him, please at least, don’t act or try to speak like a too perfect converted human being. It doesnt show being christian at all.

  33. people seemed to be deaf with their own feelings,, they are just pretending themselves even though they were hurt. trials make man to be matured enough,, they help man to look for a solution of there problems. they were blaming God for the bad things happen on them because they have luck of faith to God. god, never left us He just test us how dept was our faith to Him. never get bored nor surrender because God never surrender us. he offer His life for us in order that we will save from our sins.
