Of Boring Sermons and Religious Rights


blogbadge.jpg

Bro. Eli,

How dare you to tell us that your church is the real church. You don’t have any rights at all because I was there when you deliver your talks last week and it didn’t convince me at all. You are interpreting your bible in a shallow or literal meaning. All your talks are scripted and I hate to tell this but I find your talks so boring, irritating and nauseating. Sorry about that but i think you need to know this coz you are trying hard and you cannot fool people especially those educated ones and with great faith in our catholic church. Our church is not discriminatory or trying to step foot on others faith. Focus on your own followers. Respect other religion coz we are not a fool to digest all your shallow explanations.

Lillian Fernando

 

Dear Madame Fernando,

I am very sorry to hear from you that I have no right to say that the Church of God is the true Church. For your information, Madame, it is not only the right of a person to think or to believe he is right, but it is of the highest level of sanity. Because, if you believe that you are wrong and you still have the guts to say that you are right that is the highest level of insanity — as far as my opinion is concerned.

(1 Corinthians 10:23) All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

But of course, it is a basic human right — you are entitled to your own opinion; but don’t forget mine.

(Matthew 7:12) Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

The Catholic Church spearheaded the notion and claim that it is the only one true church in the world, and there is no salvation outside of it.

Others followed suit.

The true Church in the Bible never claimed that it is the true church because it does not have any feeling of guilt or insecurity. In fact, with the help of your computer, you can easily type the phrase “true church”, and instantaneously find out that there is no such term in the Bible. If I say that the Church of God is the true church because I believe in the Bible, it is my religious right; and I am not saying — and never will I — that my church is the true church (as you have accused me of), because I do not have any church of my own; only preaching the Church written in the Bible.

If you open your Bible (particularly the official Bible of the Roman Catholic Church), the church in the Bible is the Church of God.

(Acts 20:28) Take heed to yourselves and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the Church of God which he hath purchased with his own blood. DOUAY-RHEIMS VERSION

And because it is the church which is written in the Bible, don’t I have the right to believe that it is the true church?

The official name of your church, “The Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church”, is not written in the Bible. It only acquired its official name in the Vatican Council of 1870. So, it is understandable that it is not the ‘true’ church in the Bible. (See reference below)

romancatholic-edited.jpg

Imagine, a church that claims that it is the original, having its official name only after eighteen hundred long years!

You said “that you were bored listening to me”. I respect your right; but you see, when I also listen to sermons of priests, I am more than bored because they do not teach the Bible — but their own opinion. Want an example?

limbo_large.jpg

The Catholic Church, for centuries, taught its followers the existence of limbo. Millions have died believing in it; but now, your present pope declared that limbo does not exist, so, it is a mere opinion of the past popes, or its non-existence is also an opinion of the present.

Here is another opinion of your leaders, which is blatantly non-biblical. We came from apes? Biblically, we were created directly by God as humans.

(Genesis 2:7) And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Your pope now said “that there is substantial scientific proof of the theory of evolution”, which declaration proves the ignorance of your leaders regarding the Bible.

http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,22136550-5002700,00.html

You said that, I am “trying hard, that I am fooling people”, which you did not substantiate with any evidence — biblical or outside of the Bible. For this I have to say that it is the opposite. I am not trying hard because it is very easy for me to prove that your practices in your church like, kneeling before idols, praying before idol of stones and woods are prohibited by God.

(Deuteronomy 5:7-9) Thou shalt not have strange gods in my sight. Thou shalt not make to thy self a graven thing, nor the likeness of any things, that are in heaven above, or that are in the earth beneath, or that abide in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, and thou shalt not serve them. For I am the Lord thy God, a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon their children unto the third and fourth generation, to them that hate me… DOUAY-RHEIMS VERSION

(Acts 17:29) Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

You said that “I am fooling people”, but I am not the one fooling people because I am reading to them the words of God in the Bible, but your priests do not — as often as I do!

You also said that, “our church is not discriminatory or trying to step foot on others faith.” To this, I say, as a brotherly advice to you, that you must do a little research. Your church does not only trample the rights of other faith, but executes or murders those who do not want to believe in her doctrines. To this, the late Pope John Paul II, I call as my witness.

inquistions1.jpg

The most disgusting of your comment is “Respect other religion coz we are not a fool to digest all your shallow explanations.” You should have said this to your leaders. I respect other’s faith, but I have to follow my God’s instruction to shout and tell people the truth.

(Isaiah 58:1) Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

I am sorry to hear from you that you “can not digest my shallow explanations”. It is your right. But if my shallow explanations can not be digested by you, the more your digestive system will be in trouble if you encounter the deeper things of God in the Bible.

(1 Corinthians 2:10) But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

It is the Spirit that reveals the truth of the word of God in the Bible in the heart of a man, not the explanation of anybody — including Brother Eli.

(Acts 16:14) And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.

I pray to God that He may enlighten you.

 

God Bless You.

  1. To Madame Fernando,

    I cant blame you for not understanding the word from the bible, as it was mentioned in II cor 4:4. But I think your on the right track in listening to Bro Eli’s teaching. I was a catholic for 37 BOOORRRIIIINNNNGGGG YEARS, but I am THANKFUL TO OUR GOD, that my eyes and heart was open to know the truth when I listened to Bro Eli’s program. Furthermore, do a little bit of research in your UNBIBLICAL CATHOLIC BORING DOCTRINES, before you make accusations to what Bro Eli’s teaching, we always have our basis and proof. I hope and pray that our GOD may enlighten you as what HE did to me.

    TO GOD BE THE GLORY

  2. amen!

    ms. fernando, i hope and pray that you search for the truth.

    read the Bible.

    it is in it that you shall find what God wants and what you must do to be saved.

    i was once also a member of the roman catholic church. i have been a member for over 30 years. i even know how to read the “pasyon” in my local dialect. but God has been gracious to me that He has opened my heart.

    seek. you’ve already started. i pray that you continue.

    God bless you.

    To God be all the glory!!!!

  3. To Madam Fernando…
    Most of us also were once catholics and after hearing B. Eli we can distinguish rightfully according to the Bible who is a boring preacher compared to your priest…whenever B. Eli speaks he sees to it that it is Biblical always unlike your priests…
    Well we advise you to be more keen in discerning the Truth…CHILL!…drink enough water…
    READ your Bible and ask for Biblical basis in everything you practice in your faith…
    Hope you are enligthened by the reply of B.Eli…
    Lastly,if we are of God,we listen to the words of God…
    To GOD be the Glory!

  4. To Lilian Fernando,

    For all the things you have said to our preacher, if I will just follow MY OWN will, maybe I will punch or slap your face…

    but since I have to follow God’s law, I will and must forgive you.

    How dare you to say “Respect other religion”? Do you really have the guts to say these words? Do you respect other religions as well?

    Maybe you should know what “respect” really means.

    Anyways, May God enlighten you.

    P. S. For your information, I am also a Catholic before. And may I humbly say that I am an educated person (I am an Engineer)…but does it follow that I was fooled by Bro. Eli?….
    In my opinion, the fools are those “educated persons” who kneels before idols. Those “educated persons” praying before idol of stones and woods (at may fiber glass pa ngayon…).

  5. Amen! The Catholic Chrurch is not the true church.
    They teach doctrines that are erroneous and unbiblical.
    As per evidence laid, Catholic church invents doctrines that are anti christ.

    Priest sermons are often time boring and just mere story telling, few verses are read, and then they give their own explanation. Too bad for that lady, i hope that through these your mind will be opened.

  6. that lady is so pitifull, i cant imagine how did she have this kind of belief in catholic after hearing this shallow explanation of brother eli, madame use your coconut not your hearth, if this shallow explanation cant wake you up
    how much more the deeper things of God that only brother eli could explain to you, tsk…tsk….tsk isa pang ewan at kutakut takut na iling na lang ang pede kong magawa sa ganitong klaseng faith ng isang nag ngangalang “lillian fernando” nood ka rin ng good morning kuya sa untv, hwag kang manatiling plastic dyan sa pananampalataya mo

  7. i hope so too that you will be enlightened, ms/mrs lillian fernando.. i noticed that you did not understand even your own words.. you kept saying such comments and it all kept coming back to you.. however, i wish that brother eli’s answers help you realize that..

    we miss you bro. eli!!!

  8. I don’t think Miss Lillian would be able to get her sleep after reading Bro. Eli’s answer to her comments!

    I suggest that everybody should read it again and again because this can never be boring!

    So sharp, so straight, so powerful, so lawful … so True.

    Thanks be to God!

  9. To Ms. Fernando,

    Read the bible. You will see the great difference of your priests’ teachings from what the bible really says.

    Peace be with thee

  10. Amen!
    Bro. Eli’s answers and replies to all of Ms. Lillian Fernando’s opinions and comments were substantiated with proofs point by point. Bro. Eli’s replies as always, were very biblically explained, very well said or conveyed.

    Thanks be to God and glory be to God for giving us Bro. Eli, His honest minister and the only sensible preacher in our times!

    I hope and pray for Ms. Lillian Fernado’s enlightenment.

    Brod Pete

  11. I hope that Bro. Eli’s explanation in this blog surely enlighten those people who by themselves feel they are on the right track. Feel free without inhibition to thyself the truthfullness of what Bro. Eli wanted to convey. Afterall, the reasoning of which are written in the scriptures.

    I hope that Ms Lilian, not only to her but the others with the same feeling like her, will open up their heart and mind even as little as it can, and compare Bro. Eli to the other preachers in the world.

    No one can you find a true preacher of God in this generation of man but Bro. Eli.

    To God be the Glory!!!

  12. to GOD be the GLORY!!!! Very well said Bro. ELI….

    Ms. Fernando, open your heart… and your mind…
    and you may enlighten… Ask GOD to help you to find the true CHURCH with a true members and a leader..

    GOD BLESS…

  13. To Lillian Fernando,

    Like you I was also a Catholic for 21 years but upon reading your comments I got so upset about your baseless and unsubstantiated accusations about Bro. Eli and the Church of God as a whole. I hope that the latest post by Bro. Eli answering your “insentitive and preposterous” comment enlighten you. The bible verses can speak for itself aside from our “witnesses”countering your words… and its quite surprising that its no less than your two popes in Vatican supplying the evidence.

    Here are your comments… and please allow me to react.

    How dare you to tell us that your church is the real church…
    > The Church of God is the true church.. Its written 12 times in the bible…

    You don’t have any rights at all because I was there when you deliver your talks last week and it didn’t convince me at all.

    > Well “a close mind accepts no new ideas”. My advise to you is that you should take more time listening and studying our doctrine. I think you just attended “once” and yet you are already hastily jumping into conclusion that what you see or heard (?) is not convincing. Well you may visit our website and watch our tv programs and have “more” in-depth observation.

    You are interpreting your bible in a shallow or literal meaning.

    > Oh I believe that you should present some proof why did you think that Bro. Eli speaks literal and shallow thing regarding the bible. i don’t know but me as a believer; the topics being discussed by Bro. Eli are so “overwhelming” to the point that it is so hard to contain in our minds anymore. Full of wisdom and I believe those were gift by God to His people. But one thing I will tell you.. I spent most of my life being a Catholic but I really learn nothing there when it comes to biblical matters. But in the Church of God… It will take you just a minute or two to learn something that is not being teached by your priests even if you stay in RCC for a life time. Im speaking from my own experience.

    All your talks are scripted and I hate to tell this but I find your talks so boring, irritating and nauseating.

    >Tell that to your priests… I think its more boring to listen to the homily discussing politics, economics etc etc. rather that listen to the “BORING” discussion of the bible by Bro. Eli that you are telling about. YOU KNOW? I DONT KNOW WHY IM FEELING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM YOU. IBA EH, KASE… IM OBSESSED LISTENING TO THOSE “boring, irritating and nauseating talks” OF BRO. ELI. Iba eh… But wait… you said that Bro. Eli’s talks are scripted… Yeah thats true… It is all in the ” S C R I P T U R E”.

    Sorry about that but i think you need to know this coz you are trying hard and you cannot fool people especially those educated ones and with great faith in our catholic church.

    >I’m sorry but I’m also a professional and once have a great faith in the Catholic Church.. But I was not a “FOOL” why I join this congregation.. You cannot blame me because I just became “WISE”.

    Our church is not discriminatory or trying to step foot on others faith.

    > Oh please scroll the page up and read again the declarations of your beloved church.

    …..NO SALVATION OUTSIDE THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

    -Religion Doctrines and Practices by Francis B. Cassilly page 352

    Focus on your own followers. Respect other religion coz we are not a fool to digest all your shallow explanations.

    > again…..”A CLOSE MIND SIMPLY REFUSES TO ACCEPT NEW IDEAS”

    I’m praying that you too can also be enlightened… Search the truth and ask for Divine guidance…

    • Nice one! Amen! There’s really a big difference when one is guided by God. I pray that Miss Fernando will open her mind and heart to know the truth and nothing but the truth and may God enlighten her as she seeks it. As per Bible ( I just can’t remember the verse) ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING, in ALL YOUR WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM and HE WILL GUIDE YOUR PATH’. To GOD be the glory forever!

  14. @ madame Fernando,
    Kindly elaborate on this statement of yours…. You are interpreting your bible in a shallow or literal meaning.
    @ bro. Eli,
    Thanks be to God for patiently listening and clarifying. may the others waste not the chance to embrace the truth.

  15. Brother Eli does not teach his own but the Words of God in the Bible. (Maybe you find Bro. Eli’s preaching boring because Bro. Eli reads Bible verses from time to time unlike your catholic priests who prefer to read one or two verses then the rest is a beautiful story-telling–I know it because I was a catholic before.)

    But if you reject biblical verses that Bro. Eli reads, then read this verse and then assert yourself.


    Juan 8:47 — He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

    ===
    May the Word be with you!

  16. well, nobody can pls evrybody, she’s intitled to her opinion even if its very stupid. If what she had heard was shallow then for me she is hollow.

  17. Dear Lilian Fernando,

    I am very sorry to hear such comments for our beloved Minister of GOD,Bro. ELI Soriano. You know why?
    I have been 50 years catholic and a catholic nun for more than 10 years. Our priests leaders never taught me things exactly from the bible. Even when I went to Italy for a mission. I have been two years there but never hear from the priests anything about the truth in the bible.
    Now, I happen to come across the programs of Bro. Eli on TV and my burning desire to know about God in truth is kindled. Then I search for his Group and found Him. Now I am at peace and grateful to Bro. Eli because I am fulfilled as a true believer
    and server of GOD.

    Please ponder whatever he says because they come from God. I will assure you will never regret it but you will be forever happy for it.

  18. Lilian Fernando, (aka Tony)

    Sis, what do you mean by shallow or literal meaning?

    do you undertand what’s the real meaning of shallow and literal meaning in the bible?

    can you show it?

    Brother Eli is just only doing what St. Paul done in Athens.

    As Paul version:

    “For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

    As Brother Eli version:

    “For as I passed by your church, and beheld your devotions, I found in your altar with so many statue, TO THE KNOWN SAINT. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you that the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship to the Father in spirit and in truth.”

    what’s the problem on that sister? is there is boring?

    one thing I can say, If you are in love then you are not bored…..

    ” Don’t give me your love for a moment, or an hour, love me always, as you love me (like your mother), from the start (when you are still young), with everything of your heart ( and mind) ……………”

    EYES

  19. @Ms. Lilian

    Ouch!!???

    I was a member of the RCC when I first heard the true teachings in the Bible from Bro. Eli. I was hurt. I was fuming mad!! I ended up believing as what happened to the early christians in Acts 2:37-41.

    There are many who experienced the same thing. I hope it will happen to you too. Well, calling our presiding Minister as BROTHER Eli and attending our activities (“.. .I was there when you deliver your talks last week …”) may be a good start. Happy listening!!!

  20. To Lilian Fernando,
    I am so thankful to God, ’cause I’ve found the true Church of God, (I Tim 3:15) and that I am proud to say I am a Christian, (and not like those pretending to be). For 38 years that I’ve wasted when I was still with the catholic, I’ve never seen any doctrines of your church that are biblical, that includes all your beliefs and traditions which are all just inventions . I came to know and understand that those are just false beliefs when I started listening to bro Eli. I was amazed by his teachings which are all biblically-based, unlike your priest, who bored me to death of his non-sense sermons,etc. I should be cursing you because of your false and unacceptable claims to bro Eli, but I should feel pity on you instead because you have never found the truth yet, you’re just one of the millions of people that were mislead by your false priests and pastors. Just a sisterly advice, be wise, don’t let your priest mislead you, search, look, find, seek open your mind and most specially your heart. See you soon!!
    Thanks be to God for having bro Eli in our midst, to God be the Glory!!!

  21. To Madam Lilian Fernando:

    I could sense the anger in your heart. I could imagine you being hurt (although not really intentional) by what you have heard from Bro. Eli. This might be because you grew up (I presume) as a devout catholic. That’s understandable.

    But what you really have is a “heart” problem as it is fooling you. Do not let your heart fool you or deceive you. Yes! It is deceiving you.

    (Jeremiah 17:9) The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?

    All these deceits and lies you have heard inside your beloved church hardened your heart and darkened your understanding.

    (Ephesians 4:18) being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart;

    Please heed what the bible says and harden not your heart.

    (Hebrews 3:8) Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, Like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness,

    Bro. Eli’s speech may not sound good to you, or maybe even appear shallow, but to us he is not lacking in knowledge and understanding like the Apostle Paul.

    (2 Corinthians 11:6) But though I be rude in speech, yet am I not in knowledge; nay, in every way have we made this manifest unto you in all things.

    Like what had happened to the Lord Jesus Christ, not all can receive what Bro. Eli is saying, except for those to whom it is given.

    (Matthew 19:11) But he said unto them, Not all men can receive this saying, but they to whom it is given.

    Are you not wishing to be one of those privileged people who were given the understanding of the Words of God? Or, you are choosing to continue to be alienated from the life of God?

    Time is not yet lost. Just open your heart.

    (2 Corinthians 7:2) Open your hearts to us: we wronged no man, we corrupted no man, we took advantage of no man.

    I also pray to God that He may enlighten you.

  22. to lillian fernando,

    first of all i am telling you that i came from that religion,roman catholic church…and i am telling you I am very thankful to our GOD that HE has sent a man in the name of Bro. Eli who has make me realized about the true church in the bible…and to GOD be the glory…

    i am now a member of this congregation which is Bro.Eli the presiding minister…and i am very thankful to our GOD that i am now free from that catholic religion who was never instrumental to make me realized how to serve GOD rightfully…

    your comment that bro. Eli is preaching a very shallow or literal meaning of messages in the bible is not true at all…like you i have a very shallow understanding of the bible when i was still in your religion catholic church…

    all priests that i have heard sermons since i was at elementary school level up to the college level, did not make any sense at all…in fact i did not learned anything from any priests of the catholic…

    galit ka lang ngayon kasi, baka tinamaan ka ng mga sinabi ni brod eli…sana wag ka magpadala sa galit…i am advicing you to continue reading the blogs of bro. Eli…

    hindi ka namin pinipilit na maniwala kaagad sa mga sinasabi namin…baka naman nakapag aral ka ng mataas na level..eh pwede mo naman i review lahat ng mga pinagsasalita namin dito…lahat naman meron basehan…pwede mo naman i check kung mga sinungaling kami o niloloko ka lang namin…andyan naman lahat yan nakasulat sa lahat ng libro ng katoliko..at nakasulat naman sa biblia…

    we also care to other people to learned and realized what is the true church of the bible…we always want to serve and follow GOD…by sharing this to you is one way of following GOD doctrines…

    do not hate bro. eli please…because we believe in what he teaches to us…we are millions of brethrens all scattered around the world…and we will not hate you for that…because we know the doctrines…and we care for you…even you do not belong to our congregation…

    i hope you continue viewing this website…

    thank you and i pray to GOD that you maybe one day be enligthened….

    isang bagay po ang nalalaman ko ms lillian fernando….

    “dati akong bulag…pero ngayon nakakakita na ako…”

    sana isang araw maintindihan nyo rin po ang ibig sabihin ng talata na ito sa biblia…

  23. Dear Madame Fernando,

    It is very sad to hear from you and some of your blatant accusation against Bro Eli. You said brother Eli was explaining the Bible very literal. If that was only your own opinion,(not Biblical) are you willing to reveal who tought you that kind of attitude?. As you claimed, there are a lot more educated people who can explained the Bible more accurately than the person you are belittling?. Will you then cite some of them?and their contribution to you present religious affiliation?.To be fair, it is prudent not to talk so much without giving the other person the chance to explained his point Biblically.The way I see it, you have been following Bro Eli’s teaching some time now, but did not learned a thing from it, not even the basic ethics. The more you talked, the more ignorant you became to the eyes of those who reads the Bible and learning the wisdom of God through Bro Eli effort. Lastly if you are that educated, will you then teach you children (if you are married)
    the same attitude?.

  24. To Lillian Fernando,

    I’m so SHOCKED about your message. How FANATIC you are in your NON SENSE religion! Catholic church is very obvious in their idol worship, wrong beliefs, and other wicked things. I am sorry to say this but you are trying to defend your religion who in return don’t CARE about your SALVATION.

    I am once a catholic fanatic before, in fact I’m an ALTAR KNIGHT who helps the priest in his mass service. I realized later (as I constantly watch Bro Eli’s program) that my religion (catholic) is practicing against the will of GOD.

    Please be open-minded to listen and compare the techings of Bro Eli with the techings of your religion or should I say THE TRADITION OF YOUR RELIGION.

    to God be the Glory….. Thanks to Bro Eli…

  25. Lilian Fernando sounds like me when I am still in the Catholic Church.

    I almost shoot my expensive television set with my issued caliber .45 when I heard Bro. Eli Soriano maligning my faith.

    Now I feel very ashame of myself staying Catholic for 50 years without understanding the word of GOD. It is very easy to know who are true or fake pastors.

    He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. John 7:18 King James Version

    You have your Bible. As Bro Ely speaks, look at it and read it. You can always challenge him or ask anything about your salvation and he is always ready to answer you. Can you mention any Pastor at this present dispensation doing that?
    and there is NONE, NADA, AWAN, UWAY…

    My advise to Ms. Lilian is search more or shall I say listen because Catholics are babies/infant as far as deep things of God is concern.

    So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. The Romans 10:17 King James Version

  26. Bro Eli,
    I Think this Lilian Fernando, is not on the right state of Mind. She was blinded by the faith of unbelievers.

    Bro. Chito

  27. Sometimes, people opt to elevate themselve rather than be humble… like her (Lillian) althought educated as she wanted to describe, seems to be dipping herself deeply to truth. I’m very sorry for her, being a fanatic in the Catholism. Some people are blind and still wanted to be blind, because they believe for their own will. Thanks be to God for the sensible preacher we had on us brethrens. Like Bro. Eli only proof that stand a truth. God have mercy on her.

  28. I feel sorry for Ms. Lillian Fernando. If she thinks and feels that the talks of Bro. Eli are boring and nauseating then I cannot say anything more. I am a person who cannot stay in a class or in a meeting if I feel I will not be able to get anything, any intelligent, sensible or even entertaining things from the speaker or my professors back in college. But when I heard Bro. Eli, in his 4-hour program, I can’t seem to get enough of it. I loved it and still loving the things he is preaching from the Bible.

    In all my years of existence, I have never heard of anyone explain the contents of the bible within the bible the way Bro. Eli does. “Nobody does it better….”, as the song goes, more particularly in this dispensation.

    So to Ms. Fernando, we truly hope that the next time you listen to Bro. Eli, please be objective and I am sure you will realize that what he is saying are the words of God, nothing more, nothing less…the way God wants it to be said.

  29. Lillian,

    I once was a catholic too for almost 19 years and I have never found anybody preaching the words of God like Bro. Eli.

    Don’t be so fanatic with your religion, you can never find a priest who will dare to defend your belief.

    The best thing you can do is to open up your mind and search the truth and pray that God will enlighten you.

  30. thanks so much indeed brothers and sisters for sending me this articles about believed of other sect.
    I believed the sender will be enlighten of bro Eli explanation regarding her question about Of boring sermons and religious right.
    Magandang araw po sa inyong lahat kapatid
    thanks poh

  31. Opinions of the catholic priests are are very varied… They don’t have a single explanation because they just get the verse and explain it on their own…
    Ms. Lilian you have a lot of wrong practices in your church which the bible itself prohibits… Bro. Eli is trying to correct it using the bible, which I think is also your reference. I guess, but correct me if im wrong, that the saying “truth hurts” is true and you’re one of those people who can’t just accept the reality of your religion.
    You think, Bro. eli’s explanation is very shallow? THey’re all based on the bible so perhaps that means the bible is very shallow for you. But the bible is not shallow! I am telling you! There a lot of things that you still don’t know….
    You may get angry at me… as i said, truth hurts… But please have an open mind… do not close your heart just because you’ve been offended by a person who’s just telling the truth…

  32. And one more thing… You said You aren’t a fool to digest all your shallow explanations… Fool? perhaps you’re too intelligent that you don’t wanna be corrected… that’s gonna be your problem…

  33. Madame Ferdando,

    What a pity piece of…

    Lillian Fernando: I was there when you deliver your talks last week and it didn’t convince me at all.

    “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.”

    Daniel 12:10

    The mere fact that you do not understand what the bible speaks about, is the proof that your are one of the wicked as to what the prophesy citing about.

    But don’t you worry madame there’s still hope for you…

    “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. ”

    Proverbs 9:10

    Seek the for the truth madame, don’t just rely to what your priests stories and adventures. I know that they are nice in telling stories, they pleasing in the ears, but don’t be fooled madame, THEIR ADVENTURES WILL NOT SAVE YOU!

  34. Wow! This article is a solid punch to those who are “insanely” fanatic to their religion even though the glaring truth in the Bible is shining brightly before their eyes–that their religion does not follow God’s instructions 100%.

    I admire Bro. Eli for being so cool even after those false accusations. He did not say anything personal to the sender of the message. Instead, all his answers were still derived from the Holy Bible.

    Lillian Fernando, I think you were so hurt by the truth that Bro. Eli is preaching. As one famous cliché says, “reality bites”.

    May God open your heart.

    To God be the Glory!

  35. I hope that next time Ms. Fernando will be attending Bro Eli’s Bible Exposition, she will have an open mind and a good digestive system to digest the “…shallow explanations”.

    I also hope that she will be enlightened including her like, who finds the teaching of the bible as “…shallow or literal meaning.”

  36. To Lillian Fernando,
    Thank you for your letter to Brother Eli. It only shows how deplorable the Catholic Religion is because it cannot defend its doctrine that the poor members are forced to do so. As you can see now, Brother Eli does not open his mouth without proof and evidence to support his stand unlike your letter that accuses our leader without a shred of evidence. Everything that he reads comes out of the Bible and yet you do not want to believe. You could be the manifestation of the prophecy in Daniel 12:9. May God have mercy on your soul.

  37. I agree with Bro. Eli, priest Sermons are boring and totally NON SENSE because they do not teach the Bible and just telling stories to their Members.

    Unlike Bro. Eli Soriano, his teaching are all BIBLICALLY BASE
    and from it we can learn so many things about the Bible.

    More power to you Bro. Eli

    From one of your Listener
    Marie

  38. To Madame Lillian,

    You are true that Bro Eli. talks or way of preaching is scripted, because he is reading it from the Scripture! Why not hold the bible everytime you listen to Bro Eli and read there what he preach so you can fully prove that it is really scripted.

    Just keep watching, reading and listening Madame! May God Bless you.

    To God Be The Glory!

  39. i read every word, every line of rebuttal to respond a flaming remarks by a certain fanatic who accused Bro. Eli Soriano in her disturbed state emotion and thinking just to depend her Pope and her wide-spread church (aka catholic).

    the arguments made to negate her baseless accusations is well composed and level-headed.

    it’s really funny how someone can blubber and demand RESPECT TO OTHER RELIGION, while she derogates and curse others religious belief that do not conform with her.

    the word for that is FANATICISM. (yeah, that includes your so-called educated ones with great faith in your catholic church)

    Your fanaticism obliterates all opposing views and opinions, Madam. Thus, you can’t expect RESPECT from your opposers, the same way you you intolerantly disrespects others.

    (by the way, in my honest opinion, i am more sleepy inside a catholic mass and really bores me to death since i have memorized all dogmas and routine practices e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y. yup, “everyday” and not just every Sundays or every liturgical celebrations. and i’m just glad that those were the times in the past. The only thing that somewhat saves me from boredom when inside those edifices is when i entertain myself looking to every beautiful ladies all dressed-up, or when it’s time to sing the Our Father with holding hands, and also exchanging Kiss Be With Yous. Apart those times, sleeping inside that church is really addicting, especially when you know that you’ll not overslept after the mass because a metal stretch-rod with basket will wake you up on the right time and charge you for those minutes you slept.)

    of course, you can argue that my account is only TRUE to me, and not in a general aspect. well, that goes the same way for you. your account of lack of interest to hear Bro. Eli’s preachings is TRUE only to you.

    and that’s the FREEDOM OF OPINION … you can choose to eat ALL AVAILABLE FLAVORS OF CRAP and you really hate to be stopped in what you’re fond of doing …. while you can reject to eat HEALTHY FOODS. (anyways, they all say … EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO HIS OWN OPINION)

  40. how dare you Ms. Lilian F.,

    well, to be fare:

    Mr. Soriano Never said that his church is the real church.

    and by the way…

    This is a fact:

    Fernando is not your real surname.

    Hey Madame! BE FARE!

  41. of blind follower and a blind leader:

    Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

    mat 15:14 (KJV)

  42. What futile and unsubstantiated accusations you brought up, Madame Fernando. You are so deceived by your false leaders and so stone hearted that you do not even understand the very fundamental teachings of the Holy Scriptures. I know why. Because your priests simply bore you with their made-up homilies and irrelevant sermons. They have conditioned your educated mind (at least, that’s what you claimed to be) to believe in unbiblical pronouncements that believe in biblical truths. By the way, Brother Eli speaks of the truth and only the truth, so if that bores you and makes you feel frustrated, then feel free to continue to listen to your lying priests.

    I still pray though that God will open your heart someday to understand His truth spoken by Brother Eli.

  43. To Lillian Fernando

    First, How dare you to accused our preacher like that when you don’t even know him!

    You know what? Your accusations to Bro. Eli is somewhat indirect way of telling us that you are ignorant. I pity you because you have so little knowledge and yet you are so proud. Only insane would do that!

  44. To Lillian Fernando

    “Our church is not discriminatory or trying to step foot on others faith”

    Bro. Eli is telling you the Truth, He is not trying to destroy any churches or any congregations, He just showing to all of us what’s already been destroyed by their own belief or what is false teachings that most all of you do “not know”. You could be mad at him, but that is not his point. He believed in the Bible and He believe that you “deserve” to know the truth behind those false teachings.

    Eph 6:12
    (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.

    For this is the weapon of a Christians.

    2Co 10:4-5
    (4) (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;)
    (5) “Casting down imaginations”, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

    Isa 58:1
    (1) “CRY ALOUD, SPARE NOT, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

    Tit 1:11-13
    (11) Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
    (12) One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
    (13) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

    To God be the glory.

  45. Yet another clever response from Bro. Eli! 🙂

    I loved it when he said

    “It is not only the right of a person to think or to believe he is right, but it is the highest level of sanity. Because, if you believe that you are wrong and you still have the guts to say that you are right that is the highest level of insanity ”

    I beg to disagree about Mrs. Fernando’s statement saying that Bro. Eli’s trying hard and he cannot make educated people believe in his preaching…If she considers herself educated, she better read Bro. Eli’s articles especially this response and if she’ll be honest to herself she’ll find out who is really educated.

  46. Madamme Fernando,

    For your information, Bro Eli never ever been claim such accusation of yours that the Church of God is the true Church ….He is just reading whats on the scripture…and you can find the CHURCH OF GOD in various verses in the bible …. How about your church is it written in the scriptures?…..now asked your beloved priest or Pope to depend the basis of Roman catholic doctrines and your faith as well.
    i was a formerly Catholic believer before that is why i could be able to tell the difference.
    Before i was blind from the truth but now Thanks be to God i was called inside His Church by the Leaders He sent us Bro Eliseo F. Soriano.
    Every single words of his teachings basically came from the scriptures…..
    just a piece of advice if you will take it? don’t be a fanatic madame just listen and try to compare the doctrines of Roman Catholic and to the Church of God especialy on how they live with it!!!
    I hope you will be enlightened too same as with me.

  47. To Ms. Fernando

    The only thing that we can say for all the people like you who’s said that Bro Eli is fool or sinner is the same as what the blind man answered to the Jews

    “Joh 9:25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.”

    Before we are also praying repeatedly, worshipping before the idols, believing in purgatory, limbo etc. But because of the Man that for you is fool, our mind and heart was enlightened. Personally, before I was blinded with the false doctrines of my former religion (Catholic) but now I already know the true doctrines of our Lord.

    Thanks be to God for giving us a man that preach the real doctrine of Christ.

  49. LILIAN,

    HOW SHAMEFUL it is for you, who is a FERNANDO, to say something like that.

    I am not surprised, though. My wife was once like you – even saying bad words against Bro. Eli while we were watching his tv programs before. But more than a year back, with God’s help and mercy, she was converted. I am hoping for the same thing for you, too.

    May you find the truth.

  50. To Madame…
    You said

    “All your talks are scripted…”

    That is true…that is because all of Brother Eli’s talks are based on the Scriptures.

    Bro. Eli hasn’t taught anything that he can’t back up with the Bible.

    You say his talks are boring? Oh right, that’s probably because your used to the priest only speaking for 5-10 minutes. Where you learn…hmm in my years of being in the Catholic church…NOTHING.

    Come on, Bro. Eli’s talks are boring? And hearing THE SAME ‘christmas’, ‘easter’ and whatever gospels every year isn’t???

    If brother Eli’s talks are boring, what does that make your repetitive doctrines huh?

    Madame Madame Madame

  51. Ms Lillian,

    I hope You have read or may read these answer of Bro Eli to your letter so as to be enlightened or may think the other way. It is always better to think many times if not twice before going to conclusion. This is only an unsolicited advice, Do not podlock your heart, leave a little opening so that you’ll not to be soffucated. See, it is really painful hearing a truth which is against the tradition we have been taught of. Please weigh what is Bro Eli is reading, it is written in Ecclesiastes, 7:27 – Behold, this have I found, saith the Preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account. And it is also a commandment in the New Testament which we cannot deny in the 1st letter of John, 4:1 that says – Beloved, believed not every spirits, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. These post of Bro Eli is very devastating to people who do not like to accept the truth written in the bible, not the truth to people so please ask God for the old path, where we find the good way, and walk therein and ye shall find rest of Your souls, Jeremiah, 6:16.

  52. GO, GO, GO Kapatid na Eli….

    to ms/mrs. Lilian Fernando – may you be enlightened

    i’ve nothing more to say, good morning po

  53. ms. fernando, maybe your just sleeping the moment Bro. Eli is preaching us. That is the reason why you didn’t understands what he taught us.

    I was a catholic before. came from an exclussive “CATHOLIC” school but never in that fooling years did I understand the teachings of catholics. They taught us how to kneel to idols, pray repeatedly….pretending to be holy. what a shame!!!!

    Since the first day I listened to Bro. Eli, the feeling is different. It really touched my heart. esp. when trials came, listening to the word of God heals me

    I thank God for giving us preacher that enlightens our everyday living. Thanks to Bro. Eli & Bro. Daniel for keeping us on the right track.

    Madame, open your heart and soon you will understand what the real teaching is. Just continue listening and with the help of our God you will soon realize that all you’ve just said to Bro. Eli was wrong. Wag po kayong magsalita ng tapos. Syempre sa una di mo maaabsorb lahat ng yon. try to listen to our doctrines, doon maiintindihan mo lahat. At pagdumating ang pagkaunawa sayo, sundin mo mo ang nasa ng puso mo. Tinuruaan kaming maging mababa sa lahat ng oras. “Ego” lang po yang pinapakita nyo. Di po kayo natutulungan ng ego nyo.

    Salamt po sa Dios sa lahat ng Kanyang kaloob.

    Bro. Eli & Bro. Daniel, ingat po kayo lagi. mahal namin kayo!!!

  54. Thanks for your tackless comments against Bro Eli because through his response, members of your church will now realize that they are being fooled by your leaders. This just proves that Bro Eli Soriano is the most sensible preacher of our times. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.

  55. Ms. Lilian Fernando,

    Educated persons do not believe on “weird” doctrines. Worshiping idols is nothing but a very very super “weird” doctrine. And that’s your practice in Catholicism.

    You should be careful of your words! Open your eyes! Compare! We are not enemies.. We care for your souls.. That’s the very reason why we encourage you to continue listening to Bro. Eli..

    Bro. Eli is the most sensible preacher I’ve ever seen. I was once a Catholic like you but never in my life I’ve seen such a reasonable biblical teachings as Bro. Eli does.

  56. ARMIE,

    Yet another clever response from Bro. Eli!

    >>>>>>>>>>>>

    what do you mean by clever response?

    is Brother Eli talking here about intellegent? or understanding? or knowledge?

    can you clarify this?

    it is written:

    “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.:”

  57. How are you my fellow Catholic Ms. Fernando. How dare you say to respect other religion while you yourself shouts and gets mad to a person who doent conform to our belief.

    I think It’s better for you to become a Freelancer than a pagan Catholic.

    you are just similar to our blind ancestors during the Spanish era.

    FYI, Our priests are the ones deceiving us. I once seeked help from one of them to defend me from ADD workers but they ignored my cry.

    ADD is the real courageous in defending our faith. not our priests.

    so pls. before you post is you should watch your language.

    You are really look a hypocrite when you said to respect other religions while you shouts and get irritated to Brother Eli’s teaching nearly defaming his name!

  58. hey miss lilian, i think catholicism is much more NAUSEATING than listening to bro eli! i was a catholic before but i VOMITTED that ABOMINABLE pagan cult a long time ago since I CANT STOMACH anymore the CHEATS and LIES it spreads very much like a PLAGUE!! WHY WONT YOU ASK PENITENCIARIES AND JAIL PERSONNEL IN THE PHILLIPINES IF WHAT IS THE RELIGION OF MOST OF THEIR PRISONERS? I AM VERY SURE THEY WILL ANSWER “MA’AM, ALMOST ALL OF THEM ARE CATHOLICS”. GOING TO CATHOLIC MASS IS A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME, ENERGY AND MONEY BECAUSE IN MY 23 YEARS OF BEING A CATHOLIC BEFORE NEVER DID I HEARD EVEN CATHOLIC PRIEST TELL ME THAT IT IS A VERY GRAVE AND CONDEMNABLE SIN TO BE AN IDOL WORSHIPER JUST LIKE WHAT CATHOLICS ARE! CATHOLICS HYPOCRITICALLY CLAIM THEY BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE BUT THE TRUTH IS THEY CONDEMN IT! IF YOU, MS. LILLIAN, THINK YOU ARE EDUCATED THEN MAYBE YOU WILL REALIZE THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS MORE OF A CULT THAN A RELIGION AND POLITICAL LEADERS RESPECT IT NOT BECAUSE THEY KNOW IT IS RIGHT BUT BECAUSE THEY WILL EPHEMERALLY BENEFIT FROM IT. I PITY YOU MS. LILLIAN THANK GOD IM NOT AS SHALLOW AS YOU.

  59. Please be careful of your words, do you think all of us here are not educated persons, ok fine, but just to tell you this GOD will not look on what have you attained in life HE will check us if we even care to thank HIM after our attainments.

    If you think Bro. Eli’s preaching is boring, well i think catholic preachings are non-sense since you just have all the same preaches every year. Yes maybe the priest will tell you stories about things and most of them are not based on the bible, and you must notice that what they are preaching is different from what they have read in the misalett (please pardon me if my spelling is not correct). I was serving in a catholic church 20years ago as a Sacristine (female version of sacristan) and I know that Catholic church have their schedules of preaching for the whole year so I think THAT IS THE MOST BORING PART OF YOUR FAITH. Since you have started listening to bro. Eli’s preaches why dont you try it for another week then you will realize how great GOD is to us to have bro. Eli as our minister and you will notice that as you go along listening to bro. Eli’s preaching slowly you will be enlighten (GOD WILLING)

    i understand why are you saying all these things maybe you just got shock and hurt of what you have heard. Try to figure out all the things you have heard from bro. Eli’s preaching dont be so judgemental since you dont have much knowledge about the bible. i understand you because most of the catholic members are not fun of reading the bible.

    May GOD enlighten you.

    CHEERSSSS!!!!!!

    TO GOD BE THE GLORY…..

  60. To Ms. Lillian Fernando,

    KING JAMES VERSION
    GALATIANS 4:16
    Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

    See what the Apostle Paul stated here?

    Telling the truth is not easy because it can make more enemies than friends. But still, Bro. Eli should preach the truth which is written in the Holy Scriptures no matter what.

    KING JAMES VERSION
    GALATIANS 2:5
    To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.

    If you are really an educated person, well, you should think first before you say something that is full of accusations and allegations.

    Always bear in mind that you should be factual and especially biblical.

    We do care for your soul.

  61. Am I too late to post my comment ?!! Now that everyone has said their views( I hope ), does anybody noticed that there’s no Digg button thingy here?! Could somebody explain this to me? And if something can be done, could somebody pls. do something about this?. . . ‘coz HERE’S 73 COMMENTS but ZERO DIGGS!

  62. mis fernando,
    If you’re saying that brother Eli’s preaching is boring, and that he has a very shallow explanations in the teachings of the bible, well, it seems to me that you do not really know the man. Because for your information, bro.Eli is the most sensible preacher in the world today. You want proofs?try to visit the Biography page of this website and see for yourself of how many award giving bodies in the circle of earth had given credits to Bro.Eli’s achievements and faith. Even the most recent Gawad America gave our program The Old Path as the most informative religious program. You see, the most informative religious program is being anchored by such a boring and shallow speaker (as far as your accussations is concern)?If you can find a much better preacher than bro.Eli in the whole earth , then bring him in front and introduce to the world, and we will prove the other wise. Because we know and we believe that no one is greater to the sent preacher of God in this dispensation and he is our very own bro. Eli and we are so proud and thankful to God for giving him to us.

  63. baffled,

    U right bro, no DIGG button here.how can we DIGG this one.
    Anyway, Salamat sa Dios we have internet in our vessel(inside the cabins too) where i work which is very unusual.i spent most of my free time here and i always look forward and very eager for Bro Eli’s next sermon, which is very far from being “boring”.

    Now, i think i should go back to previous articles and start DIGGING.

  64. To Ms. Lillian Fernando,

    Bro. Ely is not fooling anybody, infact he is just doing hi job on what God commanded him to do..

    “To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me”.
    Acts 26:18

    I am a former Catholic member for 21 years, I thought I was doing good on that time before I heard Bro. Eli and from that moment I realized many things and I have learned many things that I did not realized and did not learned from my past 21 years from former religion. For this I thank God for giving me a change to hear Bro. Eli’s preaching and I may say with all my heart that it is the most memorable and one of the happiest moment of my life when the first time I heard the true word of God, and that is not boring.

    Thanks be to God.

  65. Miss Fernando,

    Before uterring a word, please be cautious. The devil has blinded minds of people even the very elect. If you think you are one of those ‘educated’ or ‘elect’ persons, why do catholics rub the wooden feet of an image of their saints? And you call yourself EDUCATED? EDUCATED by whom? By God or by the devil???

    Open your mind and your heart and you will see the light.

  66. to madame fernando,

    plz read dis verses…Isaiah 44:9-20, open & read your bible and hope that u will be enlightened, open yor mind & heart 4 u to be save!!!

  67. to mrs.fernando

    and please after reading that verses from Isaiah, will u plz read a verse from Daniel 12:10…hope that u will understand what the bible says and hope that u will believe… stoooop!!! from learning of many fools belief from your teacher, paulit ulit na panalangin, pagluhod sa mga kahoy at npakarami pang mga maling mga gawa na kinasusuklaman ng Dios. cguro naman marunong po kayo mag basa at umunawa ng binabasa,simple lng po yan at napakadali intindihin.

  68. Madame Lillian Fernando I was once like you before, once I heard something different from catholic belief I felt angry. But what I heard from bro Eli remains in my mind that cause me to go back and listen again to his program… until such time that I cannot sleep without listening to his program. All I can say to you, you can say what you want to say, but one thing I recommend to you keep on listening to bro Eli’s program, someday you can experience like never happen to you before. Good luck and may God Bless you.

  69. Have enough Ms Fernando ? I hope you’ve read all these replies. You’ll be amazed how many of us are educated. ( By the way ,I’m a Physician by profession )
    I was a former catholic for almost 37 years and during those years everytime I go to a catholic church I get frustrated because I could’nt find peace, real meaning of life , truth about the bible, among other things..i only have a shallow grasp of the bible then … And now that I was called in the Church of God I’m thankful that finally I have found innerpiece, stability spiritually, the answers to all of my queries, and now I understand and enjoy reading the bible .
    Just keep on listening to Bro. Eli, jot down all the verses and confirm all in the bible and I hope that you’ll come to realize what religion really make sense .

  70. Dear Mrs. Fernando:

    God loves people and He wants us all to be saved. what hinders however is our own beleifs brought by false teachings being taught and fed unto us while we were still young. The bible clearly tells us that it is wrong to kneel unto idols. That alone makes the catholic church overly erroneous .

    All of us commit sins, but if we repent and humbly bow down before God, then He will lead us to the right path. It happened to me and it will also happen t to you if you subject yourself to HIM.

  71. thanks bro. eli for giving the bible and the word of GOD more enlightment. i mean true meaning of every word spoken by GOD. if only people understand the covenant of GOD, there will be no sinners in this world. the ten commandments of GOD is the whole essence of the holy bible. every commandment written is equal to times 10x10x10x10…..so on, of every passages in the bible. understanding the true meaning is somewhat pagan in every culture unless otherwise you have to hit the nail on his head. we have a lots of nail lying around and get rusted. somehow a carpenter like you must redirect it and nailed it in the proper place to build the house of our lord. you are a true carpenter of the house of God and finish it before the endtime begin. you are also a fisher of GOD for fishing those lost fishes in the vast ocean of wilderness to put them in the ponds and river of paradise and a sheppered who collected the lost sheep in the vast wooden mountain of wrongdoing to put them in the plain proper right of attitude and faith. lastly, continue every effort to guide every soul who are asleep in slumbering cold of evil darkness to awaken to the call of salvation in the true word of GOD and jesus christ…..amen

  72. erratum
    to these comment.. #29

    I should say ms. Fernando was dipping deeply from the truth,, not “seems to be dipping herself deeply to truth” thanks for posting. let’s educate her… she didn’t know what kind her church belongs to.

  73. You must not seek the defect or infirmity of a preacher if you are seeking the truth.

    Amos 5:14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.

  74. to Ms. Lilian Fernando

    alam mo noong wala pa akong pagkakilala sa katuwiran sa Biblia, ipinagtatanggol ko pa ang Catolisismo; pero sa pakikinig ko kay Bro. Eli nangabuksan ang mata ng puso ko matagal na pala akong niloloko ng mga paring Catoliko kaya ngayon ipinagmamalaki ko na ako’y kaanib na sa IGLESIA NG DIOS sa loob ng anim (6) na taon. Mangabuksan din nawa ang mata ng iyong puso sa mga salita ng Dios.

  75. lilian fernando,
    i was a catholic then and through research,i submitted my self to Church of God International under the ministry of Bro.Eli. i fully realized that the teaching of Bro.Eli not came from himself but from the spirit of God. i knew what’s in your heart of being a catholic believer but opening your heart will lead you to the truth which the bible offer inbehalf of Bro.Eli.
    I pray to God Almighty that your stony heart will be changed to a flesh heart so that you will realized the right from wrong and the truth and untruth.

  76. To Miss Fernando,

    You are saying that you are educated but you judgeth as if you are not an educated person. Maybe this will wake you up:

    The Bible speaks:

    1Co 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
    1Co 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
    1Co 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
    1Co 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

    No wonder you are so bored of listening ..

    I hope God enlighten your mind.

  77. “Wla sa masasama ang makakaunawa…”

    Everything is said… written!

    Thank God that we are pulled out of that cruel church, the

    catholic, where all abominations reside.

    TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

  78. Ms. Fernando,

    just keep on listening to bro eli. At the moment , I could say that you are a bit confused and HURT because of the TRUTH you’ve just heard from our bro eli. And i know there are many among our breathren who have experienced the way you do. JUST KEEP ON LISTENING AND OBSERVING, YOU’RE ON YOUR FIRST STEP TO SALVATION.

  79. may God enlighten your heart ms. fernando.

    i heard the preachings of bro eli at the young age of 17. at that time, i was studying in a catholic university and active in attending Roman Catholic church services, from a regular mass to even novenas and holy hour…spending hours and hours kneeling in front of an idol, saying rosaries, attending processions and the like… hoping that i might find peace. to no effect… never did i… i still felt incomplete. so i prayed to God to show me the true church… then i started finding myself biblically educated everytime i hear the programs hosted by bro eli…

    unlike you, my first time to attend a gathering of the Church of God, i felt like i was brought to the day like what is described in the bible. by just hours of listening live to the preaching of bro eli was way beyond those 17years spent in the Roman Catholic Church. i learned alot. and the teaching is not shallow… there are mysteries revealed every time we are gathered and we thank God for giving those to us through our beloved bro. eli

    madame, search and ye may find. open your heart. We’ll pray that you really maybe enlightened. 🙂

  80. EVERYONE,

    I think LILIAN FERNANDO is just one of the victims of ADVENTIST777 and his COHORTS. I for one am their victim. So is Dimitri, Elman, UK member, and many others.

    I have read one of her earlier posts dated 06 Aug 2007 at 7:51. Read post #141 of this site:

    https://esoriano.wordpress.com/2007/07/17/the-roman-catholic-church-is-not-the-true-church-of-god/

    This email above ONLY came 2 days after.

    NAPAKAWALANG HIYA TALAGA NITONG MGA ADVENTISTANG ITO!

    They are really of their father – the devil.

    John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    …creating confusion among all of us. NAPAKASINUNGALING TALAGA NITONG MGA ADVENTISTANG ITO! MGA MALULUPIT!

  81. we were once BLINDED catholics like u ms lilian…..
    plz open ur heart nd mind…bro eli only wants everyone to be SAVED… his words may hurt you and ur religion but that is the TRUTH….

    bro eli…..

    we miss you…
    ingatan po sana kau ng PANGINOON kung saan man po kayo naroroon….SSD po sa lhat!

  82. To Ms. Fernando:

    Loobin po, after reading all the articles posted by Bro. Eli… your heart will be opened. I sympathized with your peredicament because we were raised in a religion (me, for 32 years) where the Bible were used by the our FALSE preacher as theIR front (nagpapanggap na mga banal) to deceive us but actually them, not heeding to, even to the most BASIC teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ… please read:

    Matthew 23:8-9 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

    9 And CALL NO MAN YOUR FATHER upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

    It is also a provision in the bible for (unlearned) woman to keep silent if she doesn’t know what is talking about.

    Ma’m, WE LOVE YOU,so please… open you mind, open your eyes, especially…. your HEART.

  83. For you ms. Fernando we pray and hope someday you will be enlighten. coz some of our borther and sister when we heard fisrt time brother eli preaching the Word of God, we ged mad, but after that, I am THANKFUL TO OUR GOD, that my eyes and heart was open to know the truth when I listened to Bro Eli.
    Good luck and may God Bless you.

  84. Ms. Lillian Fernando,

    We pray that you’ll be enlightened by Bro. Eli’s answer which came from the Holy Scriptures as always…

    TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

  85. to Ms. Fernando and other Catholic foLLowers,

    Thank God, I’m able to make this coment…

    Please, before you type what you wanted to type and accused Bro. Eli about what we believe, please read your bible first. Can’t you see, you’re the one who’s not respectful here, you whose claiming to be “religious” or in the “true church”, How come your mother church didn’t teach you to read bibLe?.. Coz if you do, you wiLL know that Jesus reaLLy do not wear a Long hair just Like what cathoLic portrays about Him, that the word “REVEREND” is only for God and not for man, that women have a dress codes, that there’s salvati0n 0utside the Church, that neither the w0rd n0r any glimpsE in the bibLe saying that CATHOLIC IS THE TRUE CHURCH???!!!..

    And pLease, if y0u want discussi0n, caLL y0ur leader, Bro. ELi would love to debate ab0ut this, for the saLvati0n 0f y0ur s0uLs..

    Again, Please read the bibLe, aLL the answers t0 y0ur queti0ns are written, just ask f0r God’s guidance.

    May God heLp y0u..

  86. TO MS. FERNANDO: (Hoping this is your true identity)

    MS. FERNANDO: How dare you (EFS) to tell us that your church is the real church. You don’t have any rights at all because I was there when you deliver your talks last week and it didn’t convince me at all.

    DOM: Specifically, what particular message of Bro. Eli that didn’t convince you at all? It’s easy to say “I am not convince” . I’m sure you will not be able to elaborate any unconvincing message of Bro. Eli. We challenge you. Be honest to yourself, Ma’m

    MS. FERNANDO: You are interpreting your bible in a shallow or literal meaning.

    DOM: What particular part of the Bible that bro Eli interpreted in a shallow literal manner? Identify please… I’m sure, you will not be able to.

    MS. FERNANDO: All your talks are scripted and I hate to tell this but I find your talks so boring, irritating and nauseating.

    DOM: Scripted? Can you prove that, ma’m? And what particular message of Bro. Eli that is boring, irrtating and nauseating to you? You will have a hard time, Ma’m!

    MS. FERNANDO: Sorry about that but i think you need to know this coz you are trying hard and you cannot fool people especially those educated ones and with great faith in our catholic church.

    DOM: You we’re taught to WORSHIP graven images made of stones, wood, paper, plastic, metal even to the point of kissing them. TALK TO DEAD PEOPLE… all these actions are ABOMINABLE TO GOD. Aren’t you AFRAID of God’s vengeance?
    Now, be honest, Ma’m… WHO FOOLED WHO?

    MS. FERNANDO: Our church is not discriminatory or trying to step foot on others faith. Focus on your own followers. Respect other religion coz we are not a fool to digest all your shallow explanations.

    DOM: Read Bro. Eli’s post Ma’m… WITH OPEN HEART!

    We understand your fuming reactions Ma’m… TRUTH HURTS YOUR FALSE BELIEF. THERE’S NO WAY YOU CAN PROVE IN THIS POST THAT YOU BELONG TO A GROUP THAT IS… OF GOD! Sorry but WE CAN PROVE IT! THE ONLY WAY FOR YOU TO FIND OUT IS TO TAKE THIS CHALLENGE… CIVILY!

    We have nothing against your person, ma’m… we love you!

    Salamat po sa Dios.

  87. to Ms. Lilian Fernando,

    Perhaps, If Im still with the RCC I might hate you for your comments because it’s an uneducated response, your not using your simple understanding and logic.
    but since Im with the CHURCH OF GOD and with the True Doctrines of Christ, I’ve learned to LOVE, that’s why I want you to feel my LOVE, please open up your mind, your heart and soul we are here to help you,
    Bro. Eli is much willing to share with you the Blessing that we have now. just listen and pray to God, he will enlighten you. you know you were in the right path, go on asked Bro. Eli he is the only person that you can rely on nowadays when it comes to your spiritual salvation. If you still have a doubt use yor Bible as REFERENCE.
    Thanks be to God.

  88. VERY WELL WRITTEN!!!

    I agree with everything written here because it’s all true – I haven’t heard a priest say a single verse in the Bible during a homily or any part of the mass! Although, I really do not know any other thing about limbo but if the pope’s conception of limbo is right, shouldn’t it still be in use – the use of that doctrine is harsh too because I read that people or even children who were outside of the Catholic church are sentenced to limbo? Then when pope Benedict restated this claim, only young children could go to heaven? How about the others???!!!

    Anyway, with God’s help and mercy, she may come to understanding. =)

  89. To madamme fernando:

    Madame you are very very wrong of what you said, before my religion was ROMAN CATHOLIC…I frequently attend
    masses..THE priest teaching was very boring, and very self expanatory…Im sorry to tell you that catholic church is NOT the church in the bible…catholic church is of the DEVIL side..
    Pls read bible madame, just open your mind and get interest in the words of God

    wilmer from cebu city

  90. Lilian,

    I have felt the same way the first time I heard Bro Eli preach the words of God. Perhaps I was even worse than you are but God gave His mercy on me that through listening to Bro Eli I have realized the truth that indeed the catholic church is of the devil. I would say that what you feel is just a normal reaction but you have to think it over and repent because all your aspersions against Bro Eli are the irony of the truth. Continue listening to Bro Eli and in reading all his blogs, we pray for your enlightenment. You are always welcome in our worship services.

    P.S.
    I was a former member of the “Knights of the Altar” a.k.a. “Sakristan” who have served several catholic priests in my 10 years of service in the archdiocese of San Fernando. No priest, not even the pope can equal the wisdom and knowledge that Bro Eli preaches, think about it ! ONLY FOOLS DON’T CHANGE THEIR MINDS, it hurts to accept the TRUTH but we have to.

  91. Lilian,

    You can find a lot of verses in the Bible the name of the Church of God. unfortunately, your so called church is not written anywhere in the Bible.
    You can easily ask our preacher or accuse Bro Eli anytime and he will answer according to the Bible. But I doubt if you could ask your Pope questions about faith and expect an answer.
    claiming that your church is the true one, needs explaination. but the Church of God can be read in the Bible.
    that is very simple and true. the truth really hurts doesn’t it.
    It is obvious that you cannot contain the truth in your heart. that is why you resort in accusing somebody who told you the truth.
    you just didn’t get it. your soul is at stake here. one wrong move, and you’re in jeopardy. forever.
    read the bible. ask bro eli.
    have a nice day

  92. Well, it happens to the people who never understands the truth. Believe it or not that I’ve been w/the catholic church since childhood but i never really understand how to serve God. But w/ God’s help and Bro. Eli., I know how serve and love him as well. For sermons of the priests, Nah, i tried to understand but it doesnt make sense at all.

    So my advice to you is to read the bible and you’ll know who tells the truth or not.

    Godspeed!

  93. Madame Lilian,

    Please read Proverbs 1:7
    “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instructions.”

    ..as far as i can reckon, when i was still a catholic, and almost turned my back in believing the God i’ve known (catholic portrayed), because of discovering the deepest truth preached by Bro ELi, this verse started it all. thank God, when i showed fear, he had guided me to know His truth.

    Proverbs 1:23
    “Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, i will make known my words unto you.”

    because, even the wisest man wouldn’t understand the words of God if he is not God-fearing, if the Holy Spirit will not be poured unto him, but God has ways for man to understand his Truth and be saved (1 Tim 2:4). if he allowed it, even the dumbest of men, can understand the wisdom, as He wills.

    they are right, you’ve just started listening to the TRUTH, best is to continue. who knows, what you had felt after listening to Bro Eli, can be the way of God’s calling to you. because, admit it or not, you showed interest in it (regardless of your mood or comments), you wasted time just to comment on bro eli. a thing which one would not do, unless he is interested. one may ignore bro eli, if he’s attention is not caught by the gospel he heard. but you devoted time. think, allow God to do things on you.

    anticipating on what can happen next, waiting for God’s will to be done on you, too. just like us (former catholic members, not to mention, educated ones).

    God Bless!!

  94. To ms. Lillian

    We hope to hear your response to this…

    Most Catholic members (not saying all) like you regard their education very highly that it becomes so hard for them to accept that they had been fooled into believing the Catholic doctrines.

    Why don’t you put your education to the test and start wondering why Catholic schools teach numerous CATHECISMS etc, and not base CHRISTIAN LIVING EDUCATION or CLE in the Bible?

    You may start by comparing your 10 commandments to the 10 commandments written in the Bible. There is a very apparent difference that kept me quizzical in high school when I was still a Catholic myself. I am stating this because this was the start of my questioning if Catholic religion was for real…

    When I heard bro. Eli and the way he teaches, I had never looked backed again to the Catholic doctrines… It only takes to swallow your little pride (just what I did) to confess that I had been believing the wrong doctrines. In return? Endless truth revealed through the person of bro. Eli.

    To God be the glory

  95. Ms. Lillian:

    While we exercise our rights to state our OPINION, let us not forget that that right is equally available to bro. Eli. And while we say our OPINION, we must be responsible about them too… Such as backing up our views with evidences and references, in this case, the most appropriate is the Bible.

  96. I don’t know about ms. Lillian but when I was still in catholic, one hour of mass seemed like a whole day already! Not that it was so packed with a whole day of knowledge but because it was so boring. It’s like waiting for the time when you have nothing to do… Read a few verses here and there, and the priests’ sermons! Really, it was as if they had been reading the newspaper/tabloid (celebrity section) and not the Bible before presiding the mass! Or maybe tabloids are what they really read in their ministries.

    If you really are the type of person who’s so into show business, you probably would enjoy every word of the sermon.

    On the contrary, in the Chuch of God, we celebrate Thanksgiving for a whole day but it doesn’t feel like it! Sure we get physically tired, but the hours pass without us even noticing it! It’s like spending time with your beloved partner or friend. You enjoy so much that when it’s time to separate, you say to yourself “How time flies!”

    It’s raining verses here, and to people who are into Bible and God’s words, they’d never complain it’s boring at all…

  97. for your info LILIAN FERNANDO, majority of our brethen came from that religion that’s why we can really compare the teachings of your church to ours. How dare you to say that the explanation of bro. eli about our doctrine is boring! What can you say about the teachings of your priests?! How about that repetition prayers?! Did you learn anything from your priests? I pity for your soul.

  98. Ms Lilian Fernando!

    to begin with i was once catholic, my family is catholic, and i graduated college from san beda college, one of the prominnent catholic schools in manila. with God’s Grace and mercy he willed that i finish my graduate school degree and blessed me with the opportunity to teach in college. coincidentally in the same institution.

    the reason why i am saying this is to let you know that i am educated. thanks to God.

    now, lets do some ELEMENTARY Englsih with you, you being an eduated person like you claim, i know you will understand. pick up a bible and turn to (Deuteronomy 5:7-9). it actually states:

    (Deuteronomy 5:7-9) THOU SHALT NOT have strange gods in my sight. Thou shalt not MAKE to thy self a GRAVEN thing, nor the LIKENESS OF ANYTHING that are in heaven above, or that are in the earth beneath, or that abide in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, and thou shalt not serve them. For I am the Lord thy God, a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon their children unto the third and fourth generation, to them that hate me.

    what do you mean by thou shalt not? if you have other ways of interpreting this phrase or any other phrase that you will see here, please feel free to provide us with it and explain why it is correct.

    thou shalt not means do not do such. dont insult your intelligence by rejecting this.

    thou shalt not MAKE ANy GRAVEN IMAGE means, it is prohibited to MAKE OR CREATE any graven image. of what? of ANYTHING that are in the heavens above or under the sea or that are in the earth.

    Ma’m with all due respect, Graven would mean sculpted, do i have to explain what ANYTHING means to you? i am afraid if i do i will insult your intelligence in the process.

    now? what does THOU SHALT NOT MAKE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE IN ANY LIKENESS means to you? and the rest of the verse?

    english grammar and simple word definitions were taught when i was in Grade 4-5, what educational attainment did you achieve ms Fernando?

    by the way, Brod Eli never Graduated college, but i will rather follow him in Christ than any of your priest. i have been a catholic before, i surely can make an OBJECTIVE comparison.
    when this verse was first shown to me, i never rejected it. besides, i am not sure if God Gave me real intelligence, but he sure provided me with common sense. thanks be to God!

    now let me ask, does your religion have GRAVEN IMAGES, which was prohibted to be MADE to begin with?

    P.S

    i hope and pray that you understand this, remember all you need is to go back to what you learned in your times when you were in GRADE 5

  99. To: Ms. Fernando,

    I am listening to many preacher in the world, and i’m telling you the truth, there is no preacher like bro. eli soriano who explained well about people questions specially in faith.

    You have the right to doubt but until when? your doubt cannot relieve unless you search for the truth as i did, just open your heart and accept the facts. I understand your feelings if youve been hurted on what bro. eli said, but it’s not his intention to hurt you or attack you personally, he’s just reading and following the instructions of God.

    I am a former drunkers at street bars club etc. am a former catholic and also involve to some religious activities before like in jehovahs witnesses, born again, protestant & mormons but no one of them could change my lifestyle my attitude, and mentality. At that time i felt that there is no true religion at all.. and religion was only a fairy tale something like that. There was a certain time that i push my self not to believed in God.

    But when i first heard this preacher and the teachings he spread, “i cried and i dont know why” and i open my heart and listen seriously very carefully and i set aside my religious fanatic side, the time that i was convinced is when i saw that bro. eli “DEFEAT” one of the preacher i known in a debate who studied for so many years about bible.

    He was defeated by a high school graduat and i was amaze by that, and that is bro. eli soriano. Now, i am a member to this organization, only this religion change me that others cannot do to me for a long time. Thanks to Bro. eli and thanks to God. To God be all the glory!!!

  100. Whaaat?

    What is boring to you LILIAN FERNANDO? Maybe your own life is boring? With all the stuffs that you wear, those fancy clothes and jewelries and all the food that you eat, they are all boring. In fact, all you wanted in life is for you to be pleased by others.

    In the Church of God, we are not pleasing anybody, not even you. We are pleasing our God and no matter how much time we spend inside the church listening to Brod. Eli exploring the Words of God and teaching us further is not boring to our own God. Who u 2 say that!

    Anyway, i thank you for listening to brod. eli even for just a little while. Listen again… and again and make it a habit in listening to brod. eli and in the end you will find out why we have been listening to him.

    Dios ti aggina.

  101. To all Members of this church whowere once Catholics,

    How i’m sorry for what happened to you. I hope you should research the Bible first. You are all victims of confusion! They come to you and they told you that the bible is the SOLE SOURCE OF TRUTH! Pls, dear brothers and sisters. We have some traditions that you can trace back when the bible was not yet created!

    JESUS DID NOT FOUND A BOOK AS THE SOURCE OF ALL TRUTH! IT IS THE CHURCH!

    My hearts cries for you dear brothers and sisters.

  102. you know miss lilian fernando, i frankly tell you that the roman catholic churh is the main entrance going to hell, other religion (not to mention first) are only side doors. if you see the church or the edifice of your religion the front door are wide but the side door are smaller one. if you want to contest to what i am saying e-mail me to my address. you are just disturbing. . . . . but if you accept the truth well….thanks be to God.

    comment now!!!!!

  103. …there is nothing in this world that can compare to our faith… there is nothing that i would trade it off to anything else…

    … may this be the start of something that will enlighten you…

  104. ms lillian fernando..

    amen!…
    if that’s what u thought of bro.eli…then so be it…but then… know this.., that even the educated ones has to know the truth..that sometimes.. the educated ones are not blessed to understand whats about GOD’s gospel.. sometimes we need to be broad minded to know what the REALITY is…
    in fact, i pity you so much!… ur ignorance about the scripture is pretty obvious…. i’m really sorry to tell u this…
    anyway, we still thank u for listening..^_^

    remember…

  105. ms. lillian fernando,

    amen!…

    if that’s what u tought about bro. eli..than so be it!…

    but then we thank u for listening…

    however, i pity u for being innocent in the scriptures in the bible… it only shows that your church hasn’t enlighten you…

    i’ve also been a R.Catholic for my last 17yrs… but then as others have already said, i found no truth in there..

    honestly..the catholic members are still blinded with what the truth really is…

    remember… we only live once on this earth..but we have to live wisely to use it well….

  106. Ms. Fernando:

    Being educated is no proof that we can’t be fooled by clandestine pastors of the devil!

    I graduated cum laude, have a masters from UP.. But when an INC officemate asked me where we (catholics) got our Roman Catholic Church name, I group for words.. I was dumb founded. Nyet.. Awan.. Wala me naisagot…

    See? That’s how stupid I was when Im wd ur church. Dont tell me I did not research.. Should I be the one to look for it or should it be our priest who should have taught us??

    Sadly we were not even told for 30 years by the priest to read the bible…

    And mam be reminded, our earthly knowledge is entirely different from the knowledge given by God to brother eli.

    For now I know that even if I will top all the Board and the Bar Exams, everyday as I listen to Bro Eli I will continue to be just a kinder garden.. Yes just a kid….

    I submit to the Wisdom of God..

    We miss you bro Eli.. Continue the fight..

  107. To Ms Lillian,

    Just like the many brethren who have responded to your “opinion”, i myself was brought up catholic and have remained one for 25 years and THANKS be to GOD, i have found the truth!!

    Tell you what? In the past, attending 1 hour in the roman catholic church, i get sleepy halfway already! But on a day Bro Eli speaks of truth in the Bible, 3 hours is not enough and we even crave for more!! WE are all very attentive and he even welcomes questions.

    I am just so proud in the sense that we have the most sensible preacher and i hope and pray you can have the ears like ours to listen it right.

    Try listening with your heart.

    Will pray for you.

  108. To Miss Fernando.

    I wish that you find a true church and a true preacher of God I thanks the Lord that Im not enter the catholic church and Im not bow down my knees in the idols that made by the hand of man.

    Please read your bible and keep listen to Bro.Eli teachings I garant you that the teachings of Bro.Eli it is not of his on self.Im not find like Bro.Eli teachings preach the true gospel of God thats not like the others preachers that claiming they only save this like of teachings is a crazy teachings they have no verses read.This kind of preachers is not of his self this is a liar preachers.Thanks to be God for giving us Bro.Eli
    TO GOD BE THE GLORY.

  109. To Miss Fernando

    Dont close your heart the truth is hurt but if you truly a believer of our Lord you have no reason to ignore the truth.

  110. Ms. Fernando,

    Please watch our programs hosted by Bro. Eli, sa UNTV at sa internet…

    There’s so much more Ms. Fernando, I was also once a “Roman Catholic” You know why I quoted it? Watch and listen as the most Sensible Preacher of our time explains the most sensible of things Biblically…

    Just as my brethren had just said ” I also am submitting my self to God’s Wisdom”.

    Bro. Eli… we miss you….

    To God be the Glory!!!

  111. No such thing as devil huh? now here am I hahaha!!
    Mr. Engineer sorry for me to ask you if do you have a philosophy subject when you were in college years? faith wont keep you alive.. use those AEIO’s and Fallacies, gain knowledge and you’ll live.

  112. all i wanna say to you ms. fernando is just keep ur ears in listening to Bro. Eli’s preaching and let the words of God in the Bible enlighten ur heart…and just ask Bro. Eli Soriano..coz i know for a fact that you won’t be able to ask your Pope abou it…

    grachie mille!

  113. im confused to this lillian fernando, on the other blog of brother Eli “roman catholic church is not the true church of God”, this Lillian fernando answered to ma rosario (a catholic) on 142th message and telling her she was a former catholic, how come this lillian fernando is now turning against brother eli this time?

  114. Hi there.

    Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam- To God Be the Glory. This was used by Jesuits and now being used by this cult’s member. You hated the Catholic Church but you’re still using one of our greatest mottos.

    Who said that mass is too long? Maybe your time for Christ is too short.

    Bro Eli, Bro Eli…You are not the FIRST Christian who interpreted the Bible. Look at our Church Fathers. Do you have the authority from the apostles (by laying of hands- it is in the bible)? Your cult is now on its 43rd year but RCC is more than 43 years.

    Are you angry with us? Then why are you still using Gregorian calendar? Devise your own! Did you create Bible? Who compiled it, anyway?

    It seems that your cult’s purpose is to make war with the Catholic Church. You just attack without any basis. Like for example, you accuse us of worshipping images. So, why does Elli’s pictures are on the homepage? Please be logical.

    Pls email your answers to me.

  115. To MAYHISLOVESHINE,

    MCGI a cult? Well, mam/sir, Definitely YOU ARE WRONG!!!

    Examine your religion, that must be the cult you should refer to because most of your decade-long beliefs are all inventions i.e rosary, limbo, purgatory,etc etc..

    On the other hand, MCGI teaching as preached by Bro.Eli are all written in the bible.. How come that it is a cult? Compose yourself m’am/sir. Study further before you accuse another!!

  116. To hoyaoy,

    Peace!

    Please tell me where did God commanded to believe or to use the Bible as the sole source of truth. Remember that the Bible includes the Old T, NEw T.

    YOu are accusing us of invention? Think again. Who compiled the books of Bible? Then, whay are you using the Gregorian Calendar? Don’t tell me you are not using it.

    Read 2Peter 1: 20.
    Before all else, however remember this; no one can, by himself, explain a prophecy in the Scriptures.

    First of all, he limited God by saying he cannot be present everywhere. Reading Psalm 138: 7-10

    >>>There are lots of unbiblical teachings.

    Jesus said “My father and one are one” John 10: 28-39. Paul said “Butyou are not in flesh, but in the Spirit” Romans 8:9
    Rejects the Trinity doctrine and believe the following: Father – Almighty God and over-all Savior. Greater than the Son and the Spirit.

    Son – Mighty God but not the Almighty God like His Father. He is equal to the Father as God but not greater than the Father because He was sent. Greater than the Holy Spirit.

    Holy Spirit – part of the Father and the Son and also called God but not a Person. Aside from believing these “three Gods,” he also insists that there exist “many gods” because of 1 Cor. 8:5.

    He believes the Father who is the Living God was the overall Savior who must be given credit for all the things He has done by sending saviors during the times past (Hebrews 1:1-2).

    Believes Jesus is a Mighty God but not the Almighty God. Does not believe that He is the only Savior of humanity. The two kinds of salvation that Jesus will do: (1) He was sent primarily to be the savior of the house of Israel (Matthew 15:24) during his humanity (Matthew 1:21) but he is just one among the sent ones to be the savior. (2) On his Second Coming, he will save the believers (members of Soriano’s group). Moses was also sent by the Father to become an instrument of salvation and savior to the Israelites (Acts 7:35-37), while the Apostle Paul (Acts 13:46-47) was a savior to the Gentiles up to the ends of the earth. Timothy was to be the next savior after the apostle Paul’s death.

    Jesus the Son of the Living God also needs a savior who is his Father, the Living God as allegedly stated in Hebrews 5:7-9. They also believe that Jesus is God and man (though not fully man but just “like” man) quoting Philippians 2:6-7.

    The meaning of the “house of God” in Psalms 127:1 during the Old Testament is “Church of God” (Iglesia ng Dios) and the name of that church is: Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohanan (Church of God in Christ Jesus. The pillar and the ground of the truth. Philippines). They also believe that a person may be saved even though he has not heard of Soriano’s teachings. He is judged by God according to his conscience. Believes not everybody can preach the Bible but must therefore be a “sent one” who is none other than the founder himself.

    Hve time to reflect. Eli is a human being. He is not GOD. HE doesn’t know what GOD knows. if he knows what God knows, then, you will have 2 Ggods.<<<

    Genesis 3: 5
    “No, God knows well that the moment you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be LIKE GODS who know what is good and what is bad”

  117. To MAYHISLOVESHINE,

    Let’s define first the meaning of the word cult. According to WIKIPEDIA:

    In traditional usage, the cult of a religion, quite apart from its sacred writings (“scriptures”), its theology or myths, or the personal faith of its believers, is the totality of external religious practice and observance, the neglect of which is the definition of impiety. CULT IS LITERALLY THE “CARE” OWED TO THE GOD AND THE SHRINE. The term “cult” first appeared in English in 1617, derived from the French culte, meaning “worship” or “a particular form of worship” which in turn originated from the Latin word cultus meaning “care, cultivation, worship,” originally “tended, cultivated,” also the past participle of colere “to till”. Thus in French, for example, sections in newspapers giving the schedule of worship at Catholic churches are headed Culte Catholique; the section giving the schedule of protestant churches is headed culte réformé.

    By extension, “cult” has come to connote the total cultural aspects of a religion, as they are distinguished from others through change and individualization. Well-known global cults include Islam and CHRISTIANITY.

    So based on the explanation above, even the catholic church is a cult!

    Sis/Bro, we are not angry with you. It is against our belief to be angry with anybody. According to the Bible on Luke 10:27 — And answering, he said, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.

    And if we point out the incorrect traditions and practices in other religions, it is done to inform you, to warn you that you are doing something wrong. Its not done out of spite, but again out of love of your neighbor..

    And according also to the Bible, Ephesians 4:25 — Therefore putting away LYING, let each man speak TRUTH with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.

    Is it not right to tell the truth? Will you let your loved one be left in the dark? You’ll do your best to steer him towards the right path, wouldn’t you?

    So before pointing fingers at whose doing what, perhaps you might want to LISTEN first..

  118. your not against our faith? “It is against our belief to be angry with anybody” so let’s see…Iglesia Ni Cristo oooops, Iglesia ni Manalo…then…ow! The Law Suits!

    First explain to me your unbiblical beliefs ON THE COMMENT 138.

    “Bro Eli, Bro Eli…You are not the FIRST Christian who interpreted the Bible. Look at our Church Fathers. Do you have the authority from the apostles (by laying of hands- it is in the bible)? Your cult is now on its 43rd year but RCC is more than 43 years.

    Are you angry with us? Then why are you still using Gregorian calendar? Devise your own! Did you create Bible? Who compiled it, anyway?” Who said that the Bible is the sole source of truth?

    Ok, to make this discussion clean, answer this question first: Who compiled the Bible? Who said that the Bible is the sole source of truth.?

    AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM
    -St. Ignatius of Loyola

  119. I read Mr. Sorianos blog. Our official Name is

    HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH not The Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church

  120. where did God said that the Bible is the sole source of truth, mr. soriano???

    I’ve been posting this question for many times but the moderator seems to be afraid of this question. I told a friend about this and he said nowhere in this earth you can find that the bible is the sole source of truth.

  121. hahaha, don’t fool yourself someonewhosnew. You know what i mean.

    Christian cults is one designation used to distinguish between two types of “mind control cults”: those having an apparent Christian basis, and those with no such basis. This definition is based on the secular cult opposition definition of “cult”.

    According to this schema, a Christian cult would be defined as any religious tradition that has the following characteristics:

    1. A body of doctrine that is at least nominally based on the Christian Bible.
    2. A societal organization that includes the totalitarian thought-reform and life-control tactics normally considered characteristic of a cult.

    Some Christian authorities extend the definition to include any organization based on nominally Christian doctrine that is aberrant from some benchmark definition of Christianity, but this definition is not accepted outside certain conservative and evangelical circles as being overly slanted and inflammatory.

    The “Christian” qualifier distinguishes these groups from groups such as Scientology, which critics say fit the classic cultic pattern but are not based on Christian doctrine

    Another definition of Christian cults might be those Churches and Religious organisation not accepted by “mainline Christian Churches”. The reason for non acceptance might be doctrinal. All “mainline Christian Churches” for example accept the doctine of the Holy Trinity. Some classifications of Christian Cults would include those groups which reject that doctrine

    Ex.:Church of Bible Understanding

    Iglesia Ni Cristo (Manalo)

    The Body of Christ- also known as the Attleboro cult, was a small religious group founded in Attleboro, Massachusetts, which began as a BIBLE STUDY GROUP in the late 70’s. It was broken up in the late 1990s after the beliefs of the group directly caused the death of two infant children, who were then secretly buried in Baxter State Park in Maine.

  122. to MAYHISLOVESHINE’s reply number 140,

    you asked is the bible the sole source of truth? …

    you are implying it is not, let me ask you then, from which encyclopedia did you get the Virgin Mary that you so worshiped? or you got her from the bible?

    next, what do your priest read in the church’s mass? the bible?

    if it is not the sole source of truth for you, you’re Virgin Mary came from something that is not the truth, your mass every sunday is false because you read from the bible which according to you is not the sole source of the truth.

    i pary that you understand, but you are contradicting you’re own church, argue with your self first.

    to be honest with you, you are placing your self in an embarassing situation. you are stating arguments that contradicts your own logic.

    make some sense … please.

  123. Answer, where did god said that the bible is the sole source of truth?

    USS_BIGD,
    i think you should research wo compiled the bible. The Catholics compiled the bible, not Eli Soriano. I think this answer is enough why our priests is reading the bible. You didn’t answer my question.

    WHERE DID GOD SAID THAT THE BIBLE IS THE SOLE SOURCE OF TRUTH?

    We so not worship the Blessed Mother. Our veneration of the Blessed Mother started from the Apostolic Times.

    The ‘Bible alone’ is not the basis of faith

    Jesus in His life never mentioned about a Bible. He never commanded us to believe in a book! We cannot see He ordered apostles to write a Book. During the time of apostles there was no Bible at all! Jesus founded, not a book as the basis of faith, but the Church as the “pillar and foundation of the truth” (2 Tim 3.15) and He promised not that book, but He Himself will be with his Church till the end of the age (Mt 28:20) and the Holy Spirit will lead the apostles and the successors in to the’ fullness of truth’ after his ascension to heaven (Jn. 14:16-17). He even said,” If anyone refuses to listen to the church, treat him as if you would a gentile or tax collector”

    Well, why you can’t answer my question? Kung ano ano ang sinasabi niyo pero di yo agawang sagutin ang tanong ko.

    Moderator, if you don’t post this question/answer/comment, it means you are guilty.

  124. Your are a liar and a deceiver it only takes a second to see the false straw man arguments you put forward as evidence. Quoting mass media to learn the doctrine of the catholic church is simply irrational when for 2000 years the teaching of the church has been published in the ecumenical councils and the catechisms.

    Limbo was never taught as doctrine of the church, 300,000 killed by the inquisition pure poppycock. Stop reading lies and go to the source documents and learn something before you open your wicked mouth in blasphemy. The truth is available to all.

    This website is full of the half truths and fabrications of the pharisees, may God have mercy on your soul for these vicious lies against his Holy Church. Shame on all who believe your anti-catholic drivel.

  125. Bill, how can you call your church as God’s church when you call it The Roman Catholic Church?

    Why didn’t your Pope pursue a libel case about those who wrote the evidences prepared here by Bro Eli, including your 2000 years of terror which was admitted by your Pope John Paul II!

    NO! Even your Pope can’t do it now because of the liberalism in the 21st Century! Are you still leaving in the Era where Filipinos are being punished reading the Holy Bible or in Era where Popes are very good to rich people who can pay for their soul so that when they die, they can go to heaven, regardless of the sins they committed up to death? Which one so you will know if you are in your right senses!

    How can you be called Christian and Catholic at the same time, you do not even acknowledge the Holy Bible. What, did Peter give your Popes, additional Bibles?

    Do we care if you call us Anti catholic teachings? But we are not anti catholic per se, we care for the catholic members so they will know the truth!

    Your Popes are anti Christ, anti Bible! Can’t you see that? You very well do.

    • how can you say that… have you ever been a member of the roman catholic church???… your’e a fool if you keep on dfending your issue…. we r.c dont need to answer your questions.. and f.y.i your argument’s evedences are not sufficient enough…. bill..

  126. To Ms Lillian Fernando;

    I was amazed to your comment to Bro Eli’s preaching. You said that you were bored listening to Bro Eli but your were able to digest every details. That’s a good sign of attentive listener just keep on listening to Bro Eli and to your priest you’ll find out later whose boring and nonsense preacher.

    I believe that Bro Eli is the most sensible preacher in out time.

    Jebroa

  127. Brother Eli, your teaching is very informative especially those who seek the truth,and i really appreciate your doctrine.But my question is if Jesus is the power and wisdom of god,then why you said that the Lord Jesus Christ is not equal with the father? This is why i am not really believe in your teachings esp, the TRINITY divinity.Please prove me brother Eli because this one that i cannot accepted,and I want you to prove this that Jesus is the word made flesh- THE ALPHA AND OMEGA.Amen.My second question is.Who is Jesus and the father? if Jesus is separate from the Father as you have said in your teachings,then ,Is God is two? because if god is two HE is not god.
