I Learned A Lot From Bro. Eli Soriano

Bro. Eli Soriano – I’m not part of his group but I’m a fan. I watch his daily TV show on UNTV. I enjoyed his witty replies to questions.

I learned a lot from Bro. Eli’s practical belief (he based his argument from the Bible). His TV show, “Itanong mo kay Soriano” has (heated) arguments, but, Bro. Eli, a heck of a debater, a fighter in his own right knocked them all.

Watch out other religions and denominations – Bro. Eli can win you over based on substance. Is he a genius? A master of Theology? Whoaa! Bro. Eli was a high school drop-out. He didn’t finish high school (he’s had highest honors waiting) because of an alleged religious debate with the school administrator.

A Question Live!

Not in my wildest dreams I would one day ask a question to Bro. Eli LIVE! But on Nov. 23, I got a chance of a lifetime. I was able to ask one question via live streaming. Whew! What a night!

My question was, “Please explain further the latest craze in the Roman Catholics – the canonization of Pedro Calungsod.” As usual, Bro. Eli answered my question and he hit the nail right.

Confirmed! Bro. Eli can land clean blows, and clear issues with a striking speed.

    anong sagot nya sis dun sa question mo about the canonization of Pedro Calungsod?

    • November 28, 2012 at 12:45 pm

      Told him na ang usual kong sagot is based on common sense pero it’s hard to debate those hard core religious fanatics dahil kailangan ng basis from the bible eh ako hindi naman ganon ka die hard. Eh ano if do not cite verses from the bible as long as I’m doing good and do not step on others toe so be it. So I asked Eli to further explain base sa bible dahil magaling siya doon. To make his long witty, humorous response short, sabi niya, may favoritism yata ang mga RC. Biro mo sa Italy almost 3thousand na ang mga saints tapos ang pilipinas only two then yung isa chinese blood pa (si lorenzo ruiz) ha ha ha! then bakit ang mahal maging santo. Only God can say who’s who. Si Lord lang ang may karapatang magsabi if you deserve to be called a saint AT walang gastos involve. Unlike sa ginagawa ng RC na ginawang negosyo. Noong unang panahhon, ang gasto ay more or less $30,000 (dollars yan ha) ngayon grabe 100% increase yata. So, klaro pa sa lukot na ang roman catholic ginagawang tanga ang mga believers niya…pineperahan…and so on and so forth. Basta ang end result ng sagot niya…convincing. dahil ako mismo I don’t like what roman catholics are doing, preaching…pero it doesn’t mean na sasanib na ako kay soriano. Gusto ko lang ang practical views at wit niya. Basta ako, I really believe na no religion or denomination can save you. Only God knows.

        @jeulyana dapat sana sis tinanong mo rin kay bro. eli kung tama yung belief mo no religion or denomination can save you. Only God knows. sana huwag ka magalit kasi may napakinggan ako kay bro. eli sabi ganito: Kung ang Dios ay nagtayo ng Iglesia niya at nagtuturo Siya ng tamang religion sa tao ,kung aanib ka ba doon sa itinayo niya maliligtas kaba? parang ganon sya something like that..😀 i hope you got the idea. God bless sis..
        James 1:27
        English Standard Version (ESV)
        27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

      • January 5, 2013 at 12:31 pm

        I did not bother to ask about this issue kase narinig ko na from him ang reply. And since I believe in something else kaya I asked another question … very interesting question kase maski ako naguguluhan sa style ng pag pili ng santo..kakatawa ang process eh.🙂
        Dapat si Magellan naging santo rin kase he defended christianity when he was killed by LapuLapu…ang ending, si LapuLapu ang hero, then si Magellan naging Cross na lang dito sa Cebu. Ngekkk!😦 I know may magandang sagot ang mga die hard RC about this issue pero bahala na sila sa kanilang reasons basta ako firm sa belief ko na nobody has the right to choose who is to be a saint … si God lang talaga. Thanks for dropping by.🙂

        I read your answer to the question of a certain rey digol and i beg to disagree on the last part of your reply because if religion is not necessary in salvation, why then JC put up a church: “sa mga batong ito itatayo ko ang aking Iglesia”. I agree with you that religion can not save one’s soul but religion is basic requirement to salvation, why? because true church or true religion teaches the correct way of holiness. In fact, in several verses in the bible shows that Saint Paul & St Thimothy was called in the church, “Si Pablo at ang ating kapatid na si timoteo na tinawag sa Iglesia ng Dios”. Maybe the wording is not accurate, you may read it in I Cor. 1:1-2.

        Salamat sa Dios at may bro Eli na nagtatyaga sa buong buhay nya na maliwanagan ang lahat ng naghahanap ng katotohanan. isa sa natutunan ko kay bro eli ay maging direct to the point,be specific,be inclosed to the fact, must be based on evidence scientifecally,historically and biblically. INVESTIGATE…if in doudt, “ITANONG MO”. One issue that I ask is about RELIGION, Ito sagot ng biblia ayon kay pablo;

        GAWA 25:19
        Kundi may ilang mga suliranin laban sa kaniya tungkol sa kanilang sariling relihion, at sa isang Jesus, na namatay, na pinatutunayan ni Pablo na ito’y buhay.

        GAWA 26:5
        Na napagtatalastas nila mula pa nang una, kung ibig nilang magsisaksi, na alinsunod sa lalong mahigpit na sekta ng aming relihion ay nabuhay akong isang Fariseo.

        GALACIA 1:13
        Sapagka’t inyong nabalitaan ang aking pamumuhay nang nakaraang panahon sa relihion ng mga Judio, kung paanong aking inuusig na malabis, at nilipol ang iglesia ng Dios:

        GALACIA 1:14
        At ako’y nangunguna sa relihion ng mga Judio ng higit kay sa marami sa aking mga kasing gulang sa aking mga kababayan, palibhasa’y totoong masikap ako sa mga sali’t-saling sabi ng aking mga magulang.

        SANTIAGO 1:26
        Kung ang sinoman ay nagiisip na siya’y relihioso samantalang hindi pinipigil ang kaniyang dila, kundi dinadaya ang kaniyang puso, ang relihion ng taong ito ay walang kabuluhan.

        SANTIAGO 1:27
        Ang dalisay na relihion at walang dungis sa harapan ng ating Dios at Ama ay ito, dalawin ang mga ulila at mga babaing bao sa kanilang kapighatian, at pagingatang walang dungis ang kaniyang sarili sa sanglibutan

        Salamat sa Dios at natutunan ko ang tamang religion na makapagliligtas hindi lamang sa kadiliman,karumihan at sa kasalanan ng mundong ito, kundi
        sa pagdating ng final judgement. Katulad nang ginawa ni pablo..nilabanan nya ang religiong sa Dios,hindi lamang nya inusig, kundi nililipol pa nya. kinaawaan sya ng Dios at ginawa pa syang apostol. kaya sabi nya;II CORINTO 9:15
        Salamat sa Dios dahil sa kaniyang kaloob na hindi masabi. AMEN.

    I watched that portion of Bible Exposition you say. Together with my friends, we’re monitoring the question and answer and we also learned a lot from Bro. Eli’s answer. Too sad there are those who still devote to that certain Calungsod.

    • December 1, 2012 at 11:53 am

      Thanks for dropping by Jeffrey. Watching those die-hard rcs carry the image of that saint sends me goosebumps and shivers. Remember the old testament (I don’t know the exact verse; picture the exodus scene), its a “repeat performance”, tsk tsk tsk. Where’s God there now? It’s Calungsod style. Again, common sense dictates what they are doing is not right in the eyes of God. I should know, I read the bible (though I’m not used to memorizing the verses).

    I like the person of Bro. Eli, very frank, straight-forward and of course his all answers is directly from the Bible.

    • December 7, 2012 at 10:32 pm

      You hit the nail straight Abel. Bro. Soriano is great unlike the other religious defendants. Thanks for the visit.🙂

  10. April 19, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Good day. Please be informed of the following exposition:

    The following is a short overview from the Bible revelations of Teacher Eraño Evangelista in the link:
    http://www.thename.ph/thename/revelations/jesusreal-en.html

    There is a Word of God about Jesus-the descendant/offspring of King David that we should know:
    2 Samuel 7:12-14 (NIV)
    12 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. WHEN HE DOES WRONG, I WILL PUNISH HIM WITH A ROD WIELDED BY MEN, WITH FLOGGINGS INFLICTED BY HUMAN HANDS

    In the said verses: 2 Samuel 7:12-14 – we can read that God speaks of a coming offspring of David and not a literal “son of God” as what the religions preach.

    Is it really true that Jesus was a descendant of David?
    …to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. Luke 1:27 (NIV)
    Jesus’ true father is Joseph who belongs to the house of David. So if we are to believe the teaching of the religions that Jesus is the “son of God,” then it should be Mary who should belong to the house of David.
    And in:
    You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.
    Luke 1:31 (NIV)
    And who was Jesus’ father?
    He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David. Luke 1:32 (NIV)
    “will be called” – As you have read it, Jesus was only a son or a descendant of David not a real son of God;” he was just a man.

    Is it true that Jesus is a son of David? Let us read in:
    A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham- Matt 1:1(NIV)
    Now we can see that the prophecy in 2 Sam7:12-14 about a coming descendant of David and not a son of God has been fulfilled.
    Considering the prophecy in II Samuel 7:12-14 that if the descendant of David commits a wrong or an iniquity, he will be punished with the rod of men. Was Jesus-the descendant of King David punished by the rod and floggings of men?

    All the people answered, “Let his blood be on us and on our children!” Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. Matthew 27:25-26 (NIV)
    Indeed, Jesus was flogged by men which when we read again what God stated in the prophecy in 2 Sam 7:14: “I will be his father, and he will be my son. WHEN HE DOES WRONG, I WILL PUNISH HIM WITH A ROD WIELDED BY MEN, WITH FLOGGINGS INFLICTED BY HUMAN HANDS”
    We can discover for ourselves that based on what God said in the prophecy that the real reason why He allowed Jesus -the descendant of king David to be beaten by men was not for our sins but for his (Jesus) own wrongdoing.

    We know that the son who succeeded David was Solomon (I Chronicles 22:9-13) and although the house (with God’s Name) was built, Solomon failed to show his people the Name of God during his time (I Kings 11:1-13). Jesus came to continue the mission of making his people know the Name of God. Read this link: http://thename.ph/thename/testimony/jes07-en.html and http://thename.ph/thename/testimony/jes08-en.html
    More importantly Solomon wasn’t flogged by men when he committed sin against God. It was Jesus -the offspring of David – who was flogged and beaten by the rod of men.

    Isaiah 53 was never a prophecy about Jesus but a recollection of what Moses did, for Moses was the man to whom God revealed His Arm of Power(Exo.32:11) Read this link:http://www.thename.ph/thename/revelations/suffvant-en.html.

    To know what wrongdoings Jesus had done which the apostles had hidden from us- read this link:http://www.thename.ph/thename/revelations/greatestdeception-en.htm

    What you are reading now about Jesus as only a son of David who was punished by God by the floggings of men and not a son of God is what Jesus wants all of us to know about him as this is his testimony in Revelation 22:16

    “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
    Revelation 22:16 (NIV)

    Jesus said in Revelation 22:16 that he has sent an “angel” or a messenger who will testify or show to us that he is only a root and offspring of David and the bright morning star- When Jesus said “he is a root and offspring of David,” this means he is not a literal son of God; but only an offspring or descendant of David. Jesus also said he is the “bright morning star” which means he was the man described in Isaiah 14:9-20 as the man whom the whole world will shockingly know as one who was punished by God for claiming to be god (Isa.14:12-16)

    As to why Jesus said that he was the bright morning star in Rev.22:16 kindly read this link:http://www.thename.ph/thename/testimony/jes10-en.html

    This testimony about Jesus as only a son of David (2 Samuel 7:12-14 NIV) who was punished by God with the floggings of men for claiming to be god thus becoming the “bright morning star” (Isa.14:9-20) was revealed through the Bible by Maestro Evangelista inwww.thename.ph which proves he is the “angel” or messenger sent by Jesus to deliver his testimony or HIS ADMISSION that he is not a son of God and as the “bright morning star “to all churches (or believers of Jesus) thus proving the “antichrist” as a lie made by the apostle John.
    Also,the writer of the book of Revelation is not an apostle but a prophet whose name is also “John.”

    I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me. But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book. Worship God!”

    Revelation 22:8-9 (NIV)

    “your brothers the prophets “-The book was written by John of Patmos, who was also a prophet of God. If the apostles had testified the truth about Jesus and his works then why did Jesus say in Rev.22:16 that he has sent an “angel” or messenger who will TESTIFY about him (Jesus) that he is the “root and offspring of David” and the “Bright morning star?”
    It only clarifies that what the apostles had written and testified about Jesus as Son of God, as God, and as one who had died for the sins of mankind, who was raised to life and will return literally in this world in their writings ARE ALL FALSE TESTIMONIES about Jesus, which means the apostles had presented to us a false ‘Jesus’, for Jesus still says in Rev.22:16 that he will send an ‘angel’ or messenger to testify about him (Jesus).

    Is it true that the apostles are false witnesses?

    I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance.
    I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have
    tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false.
    Revelation 2:2 (NIV)

    Maestro Evangelista says: If Jesus had successfully fulfilled his mission from God as written in the prophecy then there would be no need for a book of Revelation. Since he failed his mission, was deceived by Satan and later followed Satan and taught its teachings, the book of Revelation has to be written so that the deception of Jesus and his apostles may be exposed!

    Disastrous events will continue to happen and even worsen as long as the world calls on the name of ‘Jesus ” and on the names (Yahweh, Jehovah, YHWH, Allah etc) taught by the religions and not on the true name of God in the Bible (that Jesus failed to make known) that was revealed by Teacher Evangelista in http://www.thename.ph

    All your questions may be answered if you complete reading all the revelations in the said website. Whether you choose to open your mind to accept the said Bible revelations in the said website or not is not important- what is important is that you were informed. Thank you.
