Karl Marx’s Unwise Definition of Religion


ask1.jpg

Good evening Bro. Eli,

I have read this blog and is consistently watching your “Ang Dating Daan” (The Old Path) program. I am a Protestant and is currently a member of the opposition in the Philippines, “Bayan Muna” (County First). I am an activist studying in University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman.

I believe in God. However, when a person gets so much involved with activism, they believe in Marxism (Karl Marx) which then believes in materialism and that there is no God.

bayan-muna.jpg I am confused. I would like to continue being a leader of mass organization which caters for the poor. I would like to deliver the wrongdoings of this administration in rallies. I would like to help the workers attain their P125 increase in salary and to defend the farmers from the greed landlords in our country. I know you share the same loving mercy for the poor. But I don’t want to give up my faith in Christ. I know there is God, but I don’t want to stop myself from shouting for justice and peace in our country.

I want to ask you Bro Eli, what is your stand regarding New People’s Army? I know its wrong to kill, but if they kill because of their belief, would it be right? What does your religion say about rallies and demonstrations? If I join your religion, can I still fight for these people’s right: An advocate of God and yet in a leftist group? What is your stand regarding opposition and their programs for the poor.

Please help me Bro Eli, I am confused. My pastor tells me my question is hard and he can’t answer me. I don’t want to trust that pastor anymore, if he can’t answer a simple question, how can I trust him my very own salvation! I trust you Bro. Eli to answer my question. And if I have follow up question, how can we reach you?

Thanks be to God.

Pamela

Dear Pamela,

I respect the idea of the name of your group “Bayan Muna” (Country First). For me, it sounds very patriotic, compassionate, and caring. How I wish someday I will know your organization not just by name, but by principles.

I admire your frankness and appreciate the doubts that springs within you; being caught between two conflicting ideologies. I also respect the rights and freedom of those people who believe in Marxism because my Bible tells me so.

(1Peter 2:17) “Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king.” NIV

I am happy to hear from you that, in spite of your leaning to the ideas of Karl Marx, you said you believe in God.

In this life we have to believe in things beyond the material reality that our material eyes can see. As the saying goes, “there is more than meets the eye”. The material universe is up to now unfathomable and beyond human understanding. There are scientific guesses which are still to be investigated and proven; but humanity, in its long history of existence, even the most intelligent persons who ever lived on earth failed to understand the totality of existing realities.

(Ecclesiastes 8:17) “Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labor to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea further; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it.”

If you have noticed the verse, it speaks of the work of God, which can not be totally understood by man. Our failure to discern and to discover every reality that exists proves the existence of God that Marxism denies. God has a signature authenticating his words in the Bible.

(Isaiah 55:8-9) “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” hubbletelescope.jpg

If the preceding statement came from an ordinary human being that was said and written almost three millennia ago, it should have been proven false by the advancement of human knowledge in every field of science. But advancement in science, like the putting up of the Hubble telescope in space, proves further the vastness of the universe and the heavens confirming what God has said, that His ways and thoughts is higher than ours as the heavens is higher than the earth. This is God’s authenticating signature over His words in the Bible.

If we can find wisdom in simple and small realities in life, and at the same instance there are small things we can not comprehend, everything unexplained by human mind and understanding, confirms the existence of that Someone who created such things and made them existing realities.

(Romans 1:19-20) “Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”

There is no excuse for those who will not acknowledge the existence of a Creator or God. If you are certain that there really is a God who created everything and every human person, you must consult Him if, within you, there is a desire to care for the humblest and the poorest of His creations. The Creator is the absolute authority over His creation. He knows the capabilities and the infirmities of every created being just like the manufacturer of a diesel engine that knows the powers and the limitations of their product. Nobody that exists can be more compassionate and caring for humans than the Creator Himself.

(Psalms 103:14) “For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.”

If your organization really care for the poor and the less fortunate, it is not God’s will to be an activist —which sometimes indulge in violent actions — that sometimes harm the poor policemen whose only perceived fault is to maintain peace and order in society.

I will not argue with you if you believe that there are corruptions in the government. Although being denied, irrefutable informations like, news of journalists disappearing without traces, a host of political detainees, and news about innumerable human rights violations (of which I am also a victim) clearly testify to the fact that there are corruptions and misdeeds in the government; but I have to emphasize that if we believe in God, violence and activism is not the solution to this social ill in our country. Violence begets violence. Hatred begets hatred. Unrighteousness can be conquered by righteousness. Evil can be conquered by good — and not by another evil. If the efforts and the money being spent by activist to voice out their grievances that will only fall on deaf ears, were used to feed the hungry, at least their grief was alleviated for a given hour. Whatever you do, and whatever you say will not be heard by those who are hungry and greedy for power and money; and on situations like these, God, the Creator of the poor, can make an intervention if we trust in what He can peacefully do — sparing the lives of innocent people.

(Daniel 2:21) “And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding…”

(Proverbs 8:14-16) “Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.”

If any ruler or government does not rule with sound wisdom and understanding, God, by the strike of a virus or bacteria, freed His people from the hands of the cruel pharaoh in Egypt — by the death of the king’s first born son: successor to his throne… meaning, the fall of his government.

There is time for every purpose. God is never late. If He allows iniquity and evil to be perpetuated by the evildoers, it does not mean that He is pleased in tolerating them, but is giving them ample time to repent or, if they will not, to satisfy the justice and punishment reserved for them.

(Ecclesiastes 3:1) “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…”

(Ecclesiastes 8:11) “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.”

(2 Peter 3:9) “The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”

Karl Marx’s belief about God and religion is not even fit to sound materialism. Sound and sane materialism does not require total equity in volume on everything or on every individual. A ‘material fly’ feeds and enjoy filth, but is hated by a ‘material mosquito’. Mosquitoes sip the priceless blood of a monarch or a royalty; but the bees are content in collecting very small amount of sweet available in every small flower, but they all survive equally. If Marxism is sane materialism, leaders of communist countries should not enjoy the luxuries which their subjects or the common people are deprived of. Thus, a Christian leader said:

(2 Corinthians 12:14-15) “Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children. And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.”

(1 Corinthians 4:8, 11-13) “Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you…”

“…Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling place; And labor, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: Being defamed, we entreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.”

If you have noticed in the verses above, the leaders of the Christian faith experienced hunger, while the members are full — the latter are rich, but the former were filth and were like garbage; while in Marxism, leaders enjoy all the luxuries in life at the sufferings of their subjects.

Karl Marx’s definition of religion is unwise and uncalled for; although in some aspects, I do not fully blame him because, maybe, the religions that he has known in his lifetime are false religions and not true Christianity.

Many pretending religions and monstrous religious leaders really take advantage of the ignorance of their subjects. This was prophesied in the Bible.

(Micah 3:11) “The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? None evil can come upon us.”

No wonder, these are the kind of religious leaders that he observed which made him conclude “that religion is an expression of material realities and economic injustice”. I am very much sorry for him — and his believers. If he said “that religion was used by oppressors to make people feel better the distress they experience due to being poor and exploited”, and concluded “that religion is the opium of the people”, I sympathize with him and with you, because I know that this was due to his ignorance of true religion in the Bible.

True religion cares — especially for the less fortunate.

(James 1:27) “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

In the practice of true religion, nobody will die of hunger and disease being left uncared for.

(1 John 3:17) “But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?”

True Christians do not kill — even the most bitter of their enemies.

(Matthew 5:44-45) “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; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Christians feed and not kill their enemies.

(Romans 12:20) “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”

Karl Marx said that, “religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature” — to this, I vehemently disagree!

I am not oppressed when I embraced Christianity. It is not because of hunger that I believed in God. I am not exploited when I joined the Church of God. I am in control of all my faculties when I received the Christian doctrine. Christianity is the religion of my choice. It is the wisest thing I believe I have ever done. And for these things, I praise and thank God. In my religion, I have learned to care for others — whether rich or poor. I have learned the virtue of self-sacrifice and control. I have learned compassion and pity; and I have accepted to be defrauded and deceived by the opportunistic people of society. Belief in God and His doctrines made me a better person than I was before.

I will suggest something which I think sounds better, “Dios muna bago ang lahat” (God first before everything).

 

May my God bless you.

  1. Whatever topic is being talked about, God always opens the door of understanding for Bro. Eli to feed our thirsty souls.

    May people from the government of the Philippines have a glimpse on this blog and wake up from their seemingly eternal slumber in their luxury which they enjoy while the poor suffers.

    I wish that every man can have the opportunity to hear the unblemished Word of God which can only come, through God’s will, from the ONLY SENSIBLE PREACHER in our time!

    To God be the Glory!

  2. Wise definition of religion:

    Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the King.

    A wise definition of a wise man.

  3. I don’t know why, but my tears fall when I read this article.

    Especially when bro. Eli said:

    “Christianity is the religion of my choice. It is the wisest thing I believe I have ever done. And for these things, I praise and thank God”

    Being a Christian is not that easy… there are lots of sacrifices to be made. As what is written in Peter’s epistle.

    “But if one suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God because of this.” — 1 Peter 4:16

    TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

  4. Marxism?
    Who was Karl Marx?
    The person who writes that “..religion is the opium of the people…”
    http://www3.baylor.edu/~Scott_Moore/texts/Marx_Opium.html
    http://educate-yourself.org/cn/conspiracyagainstGod04ajn04.shtml
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Marx
    According to some writings/books:
    The life of Karl Marx was destroyed by a demon, he was indoctrinated by a personified heretic (G.W.F.Hegel), while he was in his college years; biographies about him present different stories, but the persons whom he have communed tells a shocking discovery; his colleagues are revolutionists, heretics, and Karl himself is an evil priest.

  5. Just finished reading your latest article. This is so true, especially the hard-hitting facts regarding corruption in the government.

    I’m hoping that the letter sender (Pamela) be enlightened, and may the question that bothers her be answered.

    To God be the Glory

  6. Dear Pamela,

    I hope that you are enlighten by the explanation of bro. Eli from the bible. I myself also can relate to what bro. eli’s teaching .I was an Editor before in a student publication of my school, and when I experience the unjust ways of my proffesor to my best friend I went to writting those bad things in rutrn to the student magazine in my column. Yet thinking Im doing good,I harvested hardship in my education because many proffesor doent like what i’ve written,and yes I admit, I wrote it just for revenge. Well right now, bro. Eli teaches us not to make revenge or repay evil by evil,instead he teaches us to endure trials, persevere to do good,and Love our enemy.

    In my own personal openion.God will never luck goodness and goodways to provide his children,even we are treated badly,his will for us is to do good.God bless you bro. Eli and more power..

  7. I was so touched reading the explanations of Bro. Eli about Karl Marx’s definition of religion. It was so briliant and amazing and i am hoping that Pamela who is a protestant will be enlightened by the wordings of God in the scriptures sited by Bro. ELi. Thanks be to God!!!

  8. very well said… Thanks be to God bro. Eli…
    it’s true, and oh it’s true! Christians do not KILL, they even feed those who see them as enemies.. it is Peace that should reign not the hatred in our hearts..

  9. Wowwww!!! Speechless while reading this… Wala akong masabi…. Sarap ng pakiramdam ko… Thank you God for another wonderful wisdom!

    To God be the glory!

  10. As brother Eli said:

    “I will suggest something which I think sounds better, “Dios muna bago ang lahat” (God first before everything).”

    Then we will discuss first about GOD.

    As our lord Jesus Christ said:

    “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.” (Matthew:5:13)

    “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)

    But the questions are?

    Are we now a salt and light of ASIA?

    A nation which is called the only christian dominated country in ASIA.

    which is also called now a number 1 corrupt government in ASIA.

    how foolishness is this!

    Brother, is this can be considered a fulfilment in the prophecy of revelation 17:5:

    “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

    Is the happening now of our beloved Phillippines is considered an ABOMINATIONS of Matthew 5:16?

    look, of whose religion dominating mostly in 3rd world countries.

    what’s the secret brother?

    Did you remember the saying of a certain communist leader in ASIA.

    “To control a man put him in hungry and poverty”

    so we cannot blame Karl Marx accidentally defined that

    “religion is the opium of the people”

    Did you know and aware now brother the extents of the damages.

    1. ) They lead us to a civilized world into a world of slaves, they are pretending that they bring a good news from Jerusalem but sad to say it came from the land of seven hills.

    2.) Chinese slaves came here and now controlling mostly of the land and the original people are now the squatter of their own land but the people of that time are not aware. why?

    But history is history I’m not againts of these people today, but I hope as generation will come they always remember where they came from.

    3.) Koreans are now and we are waiting for next action.

    4.) Filipinos are migrating (how sad and poor)

    5.) Population explosions, but they are not encouraging their member in tree and food planting.

    6.) High ranking officials are not truly residence in the country.
    if they are residence 1/6 of their present age is spending in other land. (how can they feel a love of a country when they taste already the tasty land of milk and honey).

    7.) Look at whose expensive universities, but some of their staff is not paid by salary just an allowance only because they are …….(you know)

    8.) they still not aware. (and they dominating in numbers)

    9.) Too many brother… it takes a pages of the book.

    10.) if GOD is within us, he gives us WISDOM, INTELLEGENT, and JOY.

    EYES

  11. wow! another enlightening article..
    making me more proud of being a true Christian!!!

    Thanks be to God Bro Eli…

  12. Basically, self-defense is everyone’s inborn right. Especially, when being oppressed.

    Thus, many ideologies and policies sprouted since the oppression and injustice were known to man.

    And I was also moved by that same idea of “FIGHT FOR JUSTICE” motto … but I’m a changed man now.

    That was when I discovered about “TRUE” CHRISTIANITY really exists.

    Now, I have learned to WAIT FOR THE RIGHT TIME when the Supreme Judge will act the rightful punishment upon all evildoers.

    These I have found only among the “REAL” CHRISTIANS …. having the VIRTUE OF PATIENCE even though they are suffering in this corrupted world.

    (see these verses: Matthew 10:22; Romans 8:18)

    To God be the Glory!
    Gud day! I know that even I hav’nt read Bro. Eli’s reply to your inquiry yet I am certain that you are enlightened by him with the help of God Almighty. Thanks be to God! I am very happy to find a very frank, straight forward and logical people like you. Just continue your communication with Bro. Eli for I am very sure that your time would not be put into a waste. May the Good Lord Bless you and may you find the right way to salvation.

  15. AMEN! THANKS BE TO GOD…Pamela, i hope you really understand Bro. Eli explanation. Another something sounds better, “Dios muna bago ang lahat” (God first before everything).

  16. A lot of famous people come and go and even leaved their own understand of what they believed in (these are what all of us called.. HISTORY…) but what did it brought to us …. NONE!!!! except for something to study about….to prove, and sometimes …to die for.True, they are universal knowledge and many people suffered and died because of these written books. But where did it took us? are we better now?.Unlike the truth being propagated by Bro. Eli (by the help of GOD) all over the world. The only sensible preacher in our time,who doesn’t mind of persecution and injustice as long us he can can fulfill what is written in Mat 28:19-20… also written in 2cor 12:14-15…And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you;..

    Keep it up Bro Eli!.

    Thanks be to God, Always!

  20. Dear Presiding Minister,

    Almost 70% of the russians hate Karl Marx’s ideas. Most russians are members of Russian Orthodox Christianity therefore majority of us believe in the existence of God. Amen!

    Your articles are very informative except for the following which is very confusing:

    You quoted:

    1 Corinthians 4:8, 11-13) “Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you…” “…Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling place; And labor, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: Being defamed, we entreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.”

    2 Corinthians 12:14-15) “Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children. And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.”

    Question: >>>>Is it true that he suffered the most & labored more abundantly than any of the apostles? If not, I’m still looking for your added information. If yes, Is it proper for him to claim that he labored more than any of the apostles?

    (Romans 12:20) “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”

    >>>>>>Comment: Is it helping the enemy or insulting the enemy? Well, If it is indeed true that we need to feed the enemy, then why did he uttered the ff words in Galatia:

    “If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be ACCURSED.” (Gal. 1:9)

    ……..Feeding an accursed enemy?

    “I wish those who unsettle you would MUTILATE themselves” (Galatian 5:12 RSV)

    ……..Mutilate themselves?

    “I would they were even cut off which trouble you” (Galatian 5:12 KJV)

    ……….cut off?

    …… to love those enemies in Rome only? just askin!

    Waiting for clarification!

    Spasibo!!!

  21. To EYES:

    I cannot blame you why you said that, it is really true that our country belongs and considered now as the no. 1 corrupt country in Asia. But the real reason why our country suffers oppression and starvation not only in material but also spiritual things is because of the SPIRITUAL CORRUPTION REIGNING IN THE HEARTS OF FRAUD RELIGIOUS LEADERS which can be mirror to the kind of people they are administering. All the people in the government have their own religious group denominations, if they received the true gospel of God and truly Christians in the bible they will not practice corruptions in any ways of their life, but since it is reflected already to the society we are now it means our country is not REALLY A TRUE CHRISTIAN NATION because some practice IDOLATRY and unGodly ways of life. It is better to say that “There are TRUE CHRISTIANS in the Philippines” but not “Philippines is an only Christian Nation in Asia”. Right?……..That’s why real Christian is called in the bible as “Light and Salt of the World” because not all people are like that.

    But Bro. Eli teaches genuine truth from the bible, he teaches charity, kindness and even love for enemies. Which makes him the only sensible preacher in the Philippines, that’s why those corrupt leaders both in religions and politics tried to oppress and outcast him.

    One thing you said this in the last part of your post ” if GOD is within us, he gives us WISDOM, INTELLEGENT, and JOY. …>>>> Yes, its true but this will only be truly experienced by the people where Christ reigns in their hearts, not all people can experience this things…….

    Lastly, we believe in what God said in the bible that there is an appointed time come JUDGEMENT DAY, where all wicked people face the judgement seat of Christ…that’s why we didn’t lose hope if we feel oppress and unjustice now…… well its okay…they will receive their harvest in due time soon….all you have to do now is to follow God’s will and that’ is to obey his laws and do good to all mankind.

    Please continue reading Bro. Eli’s article you will be enlightened more……

    May God bless you!

  22. To Pamela,

    I wish to the Lord that you may spend ample time to think and rethink the preach that Bro Eli has delivered. I don’t know how old are you now but I should say I really missed 45 years of my life before I came accross Bro Eli’s preaching.
    And I Gave Thanks to God he did not deprived me of His Blessings.

  23. I quote, “Christianity is the religion of my choice. It is the wisest thing I believe I have ever done. And for these things, I praise and thank God. In my religion, I have learned to care for others — whether rich or poor. I have learned the virtue of self-sacrifice and control. I have learned compassion and pity; and I have accepted to be defrauded and deceived by the opportunistic people of society. Belief in God and His doctrines made me a better person than I was before.” – Bro. Eli

    True, indeed, and we are witnesses to this. If we may consider (not necessarily accept) what Karl Marx said that “religion is the opium of people”, then I guess we are high with God, and I testify that this is the best feeling ever. Wow! I am addicted with Bro. Eli’s posts!!!

  24. Indeed, being a minister of God for our betterment [Rom. 13:4; Titus 1:13], to brother Eli is given everything that pertains to this life and godliness by the divine power of God [2Pet. 1:3-4].

    Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Acts 5:29

    To God be the glory!

    from saudi with love,
    :-brnrd

  25. A lot of people believed the principles of Karl Marx because they think he’s great… but the wisdom given to you by God is far greater than his!!!! Cool! God bless!

  26. why didnt i leave a message when i first read this.. BECAUSE I WAS REALLY MOVED AND TEARS FELL FROM MY EYES, my heart was overjoyed and thanking God for revealing this..

    PAMELA, your question was my question before..
    I used to be a leader too of mass organization, very active, almost embracing the teachings of Karl Marx, Hegel, Engels and Lenin.. been with Satur Ocampo, and all the top leaders of the leftist group.. but at the same time an active BORN AGAIN.

    My pastor, like you, cant explain too my situation.
    I was left nowhere and cant even pray to God because i dont know if there really is God!

    and then I have listened to Bro. Eli, and now, I am in the Church of God for 1 year.. thanks be to God!

    and I have never regretted my decision to join Bro Eli in his faith. He was able to answer my question and stopped the agony in my heart.

    It is indeed hard to see our people under the control of US, of colonialism and all that. But Bro. Eli have said it all.. Hate begets hate, violence begets violence..

    Join us in the true Church and you will find peace in your heart.. Just like Bro. Eli says, Christianity is the best, wisest decision we can ever make.

    To God be the glory!

  27. 1Co 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

    I thought I was wise for thinking that religion is a waste of time because it does not help the hungry and the oppressed. I’ve always wanted to be of help to these people in any way I can. But with my limited capability and resources, I realized I can’t save the world. I was one step short of blaming God for the sufferings that these poor people are encountering. I ask why? Why do these people need to suffer like this? Can’t we do anything to help them? What is the solution to this problem?

    I thank God for this article, this answers all the questions in my mind. The wisdom in this article is not of man’s. The reasoning is way beyond man’s reasoning. Truly, Bro. Eli is sent by God.

    There is a God who is all powerful. And in His time, all these sufferings will end, and all questions will be answered.

    Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

    I thank God for destroying my belief that I was wise for wanting to help the poor on my own. I should put God first above everything. If we really want to help the poor and the oppressed, be a Christian, a true Christian. Let us join Bro. Eli and help him spread the word of God around the world. Let us concentrate our efforts and our strength in this rather than being violent activists. This is the “real” help we can do for all these people whom we care about. God’s righteousness should rule, not man’s own.

    To God be the glory!

    (I wish this article of Bro. Eli gets published around the world or something…)

  28. To Carmela,

    We hope you are enlightened and satisfy to the answer you’ve got from the LORD through bro eli.

    Let me tell u a chapter of mine life….

    During my college i was once a member of a service-oriented-political organization. I was so very active and enthusiast that before a year of my membership i was appointed as the president of the organization and then elected.We run during Student Council elections. We serve our fellow students, we are also socially and politically aware. We rally if there’s a tuition fee increase. And one of my experience is…. I was one of that thousands who marched to drive the former president Estrada out of the malacañang palace. These were due to the fact that we are connected to Anakbayan( Related to BayanMuna). We know the terms Imperialista, Beurocapitalista, Pasista, Naghaharing Uri, Kasama, “IsangMapagpalayang araw,gabi o hapon sa inyo” In short, what im trying to say is, we’re both on the left side before, am a Leftist too.

    But later that time, when i understood the teachings of bro Eli, that there is a greater fight that we have to conquer, i decided to left that side of my beliefs and go to the other side… The RIGHT SIDE!!! To follow Righteousness, to follow what Bro Eli have said: DIOS MUNA!!!! GODFIRST!!!

    And you know what? this is the very first time i fully understood that matter (the Karl Marx Concept Versus the Bible Concept) but then still even though i didnt heard or known it before i still pursue to do what iv did, To BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE.

    Ephesians 6 :12 – this is the greater fight we have to be engaged, for poor, for rich, for ALL.

    II Corinthians 10 :3-6 – “Sapagkat bagaman kami ay nagsisilakad sa laman, ay hindi kami nangakikipagbakang ayon sa laman; (Sapagka’t ang mga sandata ng aming pakikilaban ay hindi ukol sa laman, kundi sa harapan ng Dios ay may kapangyarihang gumiba ng mga kuta); Na syang gumigiba ng mga maling haka, at ng bawat bagay na matayog na nagmamataas laban sa karunungan ng Dios, at bumibihag sa lahat ng pag-iisip sa pagtalima kay Cristo; At nangahahanda upang maghiganti sa lahat ng pagsuway, kung maganap na ang inyong pagtalima.

    Carmela, its very good to be an activist, but i choose to be active in the CHURCH of GOD in where the Almighty Lord and God works for the true welfare of the poor.

    Bro. Eli,

    Thaks God again for the words on this issue, it edifies on me , im not wrong when i left the Leftside, because i know its for best! ‘ Hope God works to carmela too. WE LOVE YOU PO!

    We are just a strangers in this foreign land, We are not of this world then how can you find Joy & Hapiness in this world? Reading your whole narration proves that you are looking for comfort in the Philippines.

    Happiness is only a temporary ceassation of sorrow! And our so called happiness here is only an Illusion. We are all in sorrow because we are far away from our TRUE FATHER!

    How can you feel comfort in the strange land? The “real self” is always looking for his HOME where he can find eternal rest.

    Once a person realize his true identity and be with his source that’s the only time that he can expereince JOY. The real self finally found his “MATE”.

    Be contented with HIS presence and never look for heaven and paradise. Search for HIM for the sake of HIM.

    May the “Light bearer” open your heart!

  30. To EYES

    so we cannot blame Karl Marx accidentally defined that
    “religion is the opium of the people

    >>>>>Accidentally defined? Almost 30% of russians believes in him that Religion is the Opium of the People.

    Why?

    Because they believe that in spiritual matters authority of religion is evil, and it must cease, it corrupts the mind. In other words poison and corruption begins when you look for a religion as your authority. You become its slave and therefore you are never free, you are never a light to yourself and the worst part of it, You become exploited by them. When our mind is at peace, it needs no authority, but when we are in misery then we look for religion for help. And can religion help? or is there fundamentally no help at all, because the misery is created by ONESELF, and thus must be cleared away by ONESELF. Is it logical or not? Are they rational or not?

    Or in summation: For them if you are already inwardly light unto youself , you will never follow any religion, therefore Religion is only a by-product of miseries & insecurities.

  31. To Pinklady

    Amen Sister! BUT mere emotion is blind, It may take us to the right way, it may lead us astray. If people will find emotion and feeling to be a great help in the realization God, it is THE SAME emotion and impulse of worldly love and attachment that keeps many from seeking the “Light of Truth”

    Emotion is itself blind, IT MUST BE GUIDED BY TRUE KNOWLEDGE. a blind man cannot walk with safety unless he gets “his vision” restored.

    RIGHT?

  32. TO: Vladimir_Sputnik

    you wrote: Be CONTENDED with HIS presence and never look for heaven and paradise.

    answer:

    “………….., Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.”

    I’m not talking here for the contentment of myself but as a whole.

    you wrote:We are just a strangers in this foreign land, We are not of this world then how can you find Joy & Hapiness in this world? Reading your whole narration proves that you are looking for COMFORT in the Philippines.

    answer:

    “……………., The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.”

    have conscience brother, don’t treat this as literal.

    you wrote: You become exploited by them. When our mind is at peace, it needs no authority, but when we are in misery then we look for religion for help

    answer:

    “……………., Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.”

    TRUE CHRISTAINs

    When our mind is at peace — we thanks to GOD

    but when we are in misery — we ask help to GOD

    ———————————————————–

    You talk about religion? about exploitation?

    Then we hear these from our lord Jesus Christ.

    “Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these?”

    ——- Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. ——-

    “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest:”

    But what this Romans do?

    They give restriction to a young child through baptism which is the start of covenant.

    “but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.”

    But what this Romans do?

    They let their adult member free to go and the situation of our beloved Phillipines is the product of this abomination.

    Yes, you are true sometimes religion/church exploiting us.

    but don’t forget that:

    The church is the pillar and the foundation of the truth.

    and truth is you……… Lo here! or, lo there! ………….

    EYES

  33. Carmela,

    God first, is the best advice. Listen to Bro. Eli’s advice because all of them are very precious for they come from God. Waste nothing of his advice for nobody in this world could
    give you the same teaching.I assure you of this.

  34. To Vladimir_Sputnik,

    Brother, allow me to answer you in this particular portion;

    Your QUESTION:
    (Romans 12:20) “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”

    >>>>>>Comment: Is it helping the enemy or insulting the enemy? Well, If it is indeed true that we need to feed the enemy, then why did he uttered the ff words in Galatia:

    “If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be ACCURSED.” (Gal. 1:9)

    ……..Feeding an accursed enemy?

    “I wish those who unsettle you would MUTILATE themselves” (Galatian 5:12 RSV)

    ……..Mutilate themselves?

    “I would they were even cut off which trouble you” (Galatian 5:12 KJV)

    ……….cut off?

    …… to love those enemies in Rome only? just askin!

    My ANSWER:

    If you will just understand the verse, it is very clear that the enemy to be loved by Christians pertains to their personal enemies. Take note the phrase ” Rom 12:20…thine enemy…”.
    Wherein the latter portion pertains not to their personal enemies but enemies of God. To those enemies of God, it is not the material person that are advised to be accursed but the heresies within himself.. Christians are taught,

    Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

  35. satan pollute the mind of karl. that why he not know the right definition of religion, only bro eli know that meaning by the help of true God

  36. EYES WROTE: TRUE CHRISTAINs

    When our mind is at peace — we thanks to GOD

    but when we are in misery — we ask help to GOD.

    >>>>

    A TRUE CHRISTIANs:

    When our mind is at peace- We thanks to God
    Even when we are in misery- We thanks to God

    There is no distinction both are blessings!

  37. to carmela,

    If you want to grasp the principle of Christ doctrine you have to deny everything you believe that oppose to His teachings because both beliefs are contrasting each other. It’s either you forsake one or love the other. I suggest you start from being a true believer and find out how you can utilize yourself from having all the armors of faith, the breastplate of salvation, the helmet of hope and swords of God’s words to fight the enemies of God in this world because you have to understand that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers in high places whose dominions we can not see by our eyes but can only feel them. I hope you understand me. ssD

  38. Amazing answer…!!! I was so impressed by how bro. Eli enlightened a confused mind.
    Bro. Eli, i truly believe that you are God’s instrument to save souls.

    js

  39. Talks about economics, the speaker nor audience tends to find biblical reasoning as irrational, some will dismiss the facts presented by ignoring what has been said. They already have prepared a lot of studies and observations, but the sad fact is that they lack the one important variable of all, God.

    When they talk about social concerns, they use the Catholic Church teaching. NO wonder until now, instead of the sustainable development, though it might seem that we are developing materially, which is in the sight of the poor- the opposite, our moral development becomes backward.

  40. I too was involved in the leftist movement when I was in College way back 1994-1998. In fact I was teaching Marxism to my co-students and I make it a point they know it by heart.
    Back then when I was totally ignorant to bro.Eli’s preaching.And it came to a point that I was in conflict with myself.I dunno how to resolve Dialectical Materialism to my Spiritual belief. I hated the US-Ramos regime and you just couldn’t help hating the ‘System’ more because you are ‘Socially aware’ of the many evils in society caused by the ‘Greed of the Elite’. As what bro.Eli has replied on your query- there’s nothing more perfect than the undefiable truth in God’s justice. We cannot allow ourselves to be the ‘berdugos'(henchmen) for the corrupt and abusive pests in the government. And no person here on earth can claim that he is a better Judge compared to the Almighty. We may be most of the times in prejudice but God Himself sees through the hearts of men. Read the Bible Pam,you can see for yourself the afflictions and the injustice done to the early Christians…even to the Savior himself. But even on the climax of their persecutions, you’ll never find a single account in the Bible that they took arms and fought the Roman hoards and the corrupt Pharisees and Scribes. We too felt what our early comrades did in the 1st century…but with all of our hearts we never lose our faith in our God. The sufferrings in this lifetime is so short compared to the happiness in the life to come. Look beyond sister. Take bro.Eli’s advise…you’ll never regret it.

  41. ive read a book called “YOU CAN TRUST THE COMMUNISTS”

    Its a very scary book that opens our eyes about the dangers of the communist philosophy. But even so, we should admire Bro. Eli Soriano for giving Karl Marx the benefit of the doubt, for he says he is sorry for him and his followers, for maybe the only reason he stood for those beliefs is because he never had the opportunity to know and have a taste of ” the true religion” Bro. Eli didnt judge them straight out, as he is conforming to what the apostle paul did . . . . .

    “But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.”

    1 Corinthians 5:13

    Not like other “IGLESIA’S” in the Philippines who are trigger happy in judging others! click here to see!

    Thanks to God bro Eli for another enlightening article!

  42. Thanks to our God for the answer of Bro.Eli.it was also enlightened my mind..in my college time i also amazed with this kind of ideology of the activist group in my university.But there is something bothered me to join those group that is the time when i remember the teachings of brother Eli(high school time).Just as simple as…”Maganda ang Layunin pero Mali ang Paraan”…SsD…

  44. #48 RONALD

    Brother Ronald Thank you for your response but kindly elaborate MORE your answers. What do you mean by “latter portion? what is the former portion?

    Again, here is the verse in trial:

    Romans 12:20) “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”

    And kindly explain the connection or relation between Romans 12:20 and Eph 6:12

    “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places”

    In RELATION to my Query: Did you mean: If those principalities & powers, those rulers of the darkness & spiritual wickedness in high places becomes hungry you will feed them? if they become thirsty you will give them drink? for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire on his head?

    Just asking! Thanks!

    And can you comment also on the remaining verses because it is inter-connected as presented. let me quote again:

    “I wish those who unsettle you would MUTILATE themselves” (Galatian 5:12 RSV)

    ……..Mutilate themselves?

    “I would they were even cut off which trouble you” (Galatian 5:12 KJV)

    ……….cut off?

    …… to love those enemies in Rome only?

    Spasibo!!!

  45. when im reading this article, i have told my self… how lucky i am, i found bro eli….by the grace of God,,, and suddely my tears dropped in my eyes and i cried, and i whispered and i told God Thank U very much, for the preachers that U sent to us,,,,, more power bro eli and bro daniel, we are praying that

    Agreed brother! Be it done to us according to THY will! Jesus came not to do his will But to do the will of the Father!

  47. Thanks be to God,

    The answer of Bro. Eli is fantastic.. Talagang maliwanag na maliwanag… at talagang nauunawaan… talagang sugo siya ng Diyos.. Lalong tumibay ang aking pag-ibig at paniniwala. Salamat sa Diyos.

  48. to vladimir,

    Good day brother, your questions will be surely answered. always watch “ang Dating Daan ” and read more articles of Bro. Eli. It is nice you are interested on knowing the truth. Keep it up. Ask God to let you see the truth and for sure you will, as Jesus said in

    Mat 7:7 – 8 “Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.

    For each one who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, it shall be opened.”

  49. AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST INTRODUCED US WHO THE TRUE GOD IS……………..OUR FATHER….
    AND BRO.ELI INTRODUCED TO US WHO THE TRUE CHRIST IS , THRU THE LETTERS OF THE APOSTLES AND THE PROPHETS!AND WITH THAT WE HAVE KNOWN OUR FATHER,OUR GOD.!!!

    SALAMAT SA DIOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. I really believe God has answered Pamela’s quesrions thru Bro. Soriano. Well explained, another demonstration of God’s power!

    I have been an activist during my college days and that is the reason why i’m still studying. I was expelled from my school for my being radical. Now I am still an activist- a Greenpeace volunteer. I am so blessed and contented with what I have right now.

    Pamela, I do not believe that expressing your ideas is against the law. it is every man’s right. but Like what Bro. Soriano said, “Diyos muna bago ang lahat.”

    Gob bless you!

  51. to karl@hsbc,

    i really the part that you said, “The sufferrings in this lifetime is so short compared to the happiness in the life to come.”

    Thanks be to God for all of us, once activists, now turned Christians, and with our brethren in the true Church of God.

    I always go back to this page hoping there would be more activists who see this page and comment on it.

    And I am so glad that I am not the only EX-activist, that was once feeling the confusion, but many of us are now here with in the true church!

    Cheers to all of us and hopefully one day, God willing, we will all meet together and offer Thanksgiving to the Lord! That will be nice, right?

  52. While I’m reading how Bro. Eli answered those question in his BLog suddenly my tears start to fall.. i feel the same as i read the letters of St. Paul to his brethren.. maybe because i felt the love by reading those letters of him, just the same while I’m reading Bro. Eli’s Blog..!! i am so thankful to God that he sent a sensible preacher in our time that really concern to our salvation.. I’m with your God.. I’m with you Bro. Eli..!!

  53. GOD is always in His throne in Heaven. HIS eyes may be everywhere but HIS BEING is not. Believe in Bro. Eli because He is GOD’s messenger.

  54. to pamela,

    alam ko matalino ka…continue seeking for the thruth..minsan ang totoo masakit..pero kailangan natin ma accept..kasi its the thruth..

    Madalas pag nagbasa tayo ng ibang libro maliligaw at mapapahamak pa tayo..pero pag binasa muna natin una sa lahat ang Biblia..hindi tayo mapapahamak..kagaya ng libro patungkol kay karl marx…ililigaw ang paniwala mo..

    keep asking Bro. Eli if you still have some doubts..so it will be open to your understanding with the mercy and help of GOD..

    kila ceejay and people like you..magpakatibay po kayo..alam ko nasa tamang katwiran na po kayo…

    it never stop the amazing feeling that we have a person in our lifetime to have someone like Bro. Eli….

    Panginoon marami pong salamat!! sa INYO po ang kapurihan!!

  55. this is a reaction to post #43 posted by a certain “Vladimir Sputnik” in which he said and i quote him saying:”Because they believe that in spiritual matters authority of religion is evil, and it must cease, it corrupts the mind. In other words poison and corruption begins when you look for a religion as your authority. You become its slave and therefore you are never free, you are never a light to yourself and the worst part of it, You become exploited by them.

    Or in summation: For them if you are already inwardly light unto youself , you will never follow any religion, therefore Religion is only a by-product of miseries & insecurities.”

    MY QUESTION TO YOU VLADIMIR SPUTNIK ARE:
    1. HOW DO YOU DEFINE CORRUPTION OF THE MIND?
    2. ARE THERE REALITIES IN OUR LIVES THAT WE CANNOT CONTROL?
    3. DO YOU KNOW OF ANY PERSON WHO IS ABSOLUTELY FREE OF ANY MISERY?
    4. WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE CAUSE OF MAN’S MISERIES AND INSECURITIES?
    5. IS IT POSIBLE THAT THERE IS A QUESTION WITHOUT ANY ANSWER?
    6. ARE WE REALLY CAPABLE OF SOLVING OUR INDIVIDUAL LIFE’S PROBLEM ALL BY OURSELF AND DOES NOT NEED ANY EXTERNAL COUNSEL OF SORTS? ARE WE REALLY THAT ALL KNOWING? IS THAT POSIBLE?

  56. GLORY TO GOD ALMIGHTY. Peace be with you Bro Eli, Bro Daniel, ministers, workers, members of the CHURCH OF GOD International, and all of you fellow bloggers here. Any topic presented to Bro Eli is surely answered and explained biblically, and it is true and very satisfying always in the end. Many of us have that ‘inner love’ for our country whether we like it or not. It is for this reason that many intelligent, and courageous youth of their own time and generation lost their lives, were imprisoned, and suffered injustices for denouncing the abusies, corruption, and the evils committed by those in power. Along the ‘left’, in the early ‘storms’ and up to this day, Marxism, always is mentioned. It was needed, and must be done, lest true religion and true Christian doctrines will stop the violence and conflict necessarry for rebellions, coup d ‘tat, or any means to topple a government [which has always been more corrupt and abusive anyway]. Bro Eli is right, Karl Marx was against religion because it was not the true religion that he saw, it was the false Christian church that Marx saw. If he lived to see and hear Bro Eli now in our times, it would have been differrent. While we will always continue to harbor in our heart that love of country and fellow men and to fight injustice, and corruption; now that GOD has shown us the TRUTH and HIS WORDS thru Bro Eli, we must temper that love of country with FAITH, LOVE, PEACE ,WISDOM, and KINDNESS in a way that there will be no more room for hatred, violence and revenge. Anyway, Bro eli has always reminded us that VENGEANCE belongs only to GOD. The greed for riches and power will always be in this temporary life. In our country, there is a long silent conspiracy among some corrupt high Philippine government officials and leaders of fake churches out to enrich and perpetuate themselves in power. These are the same people who want to silence Bro Eli at all cost, kill, malign, and charge him with invented crimes, and use all the dirty tricks of Satan. Same tricks used against the early men of GOD like Jeremiah, Stephen, Paul, and many others, including JESUS CHRIST himself. We are with you Bro Eli, and we will always fervently pray for your safety, health, and success in spreading the TRUTH OF GOD.

  57. i admire both karl marx and eli soriano. and i even think of it that false religion is merely a true opium of the people rather than the true religion what god told us. and thus, it calls for a complete review in the bible to help those people not to end up being poisoned by the opium made by the false prophets and its believers. as well as integrate with the masses just like what Jesus Christ and his men, to the masses he used to heal and teach! for these people, like christ is imbued with a guiding principle based on the ideals of love of one’s neighbor, equality and justice under god!

    and to those whom used to criticize religion by another-criticize first your own before criticize others. (Criticism and self criticism).

  58. Karl Marx was ethnically Jewish. So was Lenin and the majority of Soviet power holders following the Bolshevik revolution. Keep that in mind peeps.

  59. Excerpt from Chapter Two of the book, El Comunismo Ruso

    The real objectives of communism are revealed by its “spiritual father”, Marx, in a letter written to his co-religionist, Baruch Levi:

    [i]In this new organization of Humanity, the children of Israel, scattered to all corners of the earth, will be transformed, with no opposition at all, into the ruling class, above all, they will gather the working masses under their exclusive control. The Governments of the nations composing the future universal Republic will fall, without force, into the hands of the Israelites, thanks to the victory of the proletariat. Private property then will be eliminated by governments of the Jewish race who will administer, everywhere, the public funds.

    Thus the promise of the Talmud will be realized, according to which, when the time of the Messiah comes, the Jews will possess all the riches of all the peoples of the earth.

    This Confession of Marx is of enormous importance. The workers, for him, are no more than instruments which the Jews must use to make themselves masters of the world and, as the author of Das Kapital says cynically, administer its riches. Marx, the son of a usurious moneylender, grandson and heir of a rich rabbi, and married to a bourgeois German woman, was not a “pariah of the Earth, slave without bread”. On the other hand, he was certainly a Jewish patriot.

    • So what will it do if Marx is Jewish? If that is so, then he is contradicting himself by saying stupid things about religion. What is clear here is that Karl Marx is ignorant of true religion and he is commenting on false religions that he is aware of. He also wasn’t able to realize the very great potential that true religion can do to bring this world in positive track, which communism can achieve, in dreams.

  60. very enlightening Bro. Eli. I am so thankful to God for calling me to the right faith… May God continue to bless you with wisdom, courage and strength…
