Religion is NOT a Basic Requirement to Salvation

January 5, 2013 2 comments


I’ve been hooked on keeping a lot of deadlines alive. That explains my long absence to this blog.

I appreciate those who took time to reply to my post about Bro. Eli.

Anyway, here’s my reply to bro. Rey Profeta “…but religion is basic requirement to salvation..”

I believe in salvation but not within the context you just mentioned.

I won’t hang with a specific group because I believe in freedom of choice. Salvation is not enclosed in the four corners of a church and religion can’t save a soul. Salvation comes from my own effort.

If my actions are out-of-bounds or morality-wise they are not acceptable, it’s my loss. Sorry guys, but we are all living in a world where religions ‘kill’.

I was raised a roman catholic, but totally in defiance for most of its doctrines.

I like the way Bro. Eli explains his belief. He is witty enough to sort out facts from fallacy.

Just to correct: Rejecting a religion does not mean rejecting morality or salvation. 

A thought for inspiration:
All the world’s major religions, with their emphasis on love, compassion, patience, tolerance, and forgiveness can and do promote inner values. But the reality of the world today is that grounding ethics in religion is no longer adequate. This is why I am increasingly convinced that the time has come to find a way of thinking about spirituality and ethics beyond religion altogether.” – Dalai Lama

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.

Do You Know How Angels such as Cherubim and Seraphim Actually Look Like?

What are Angels?

cherubimAngels are spiritual beings called by God to protect His people. Unlike cellular phones, angels can only stay in one place at a time according to the Bible.

How Do Angels Look Like – Biblical Descriptions?

Angels are permanent residents of heaven. They are beautiful spirits who are picture perfect, no flaws, wearing white and have wings. But did you know that angels are described the opposite in the Bible?

Angels True Image

The Bible mentioned several kinds of angels. They have different jobs. Some of the very popular angels are cherubim, archangels and seraphim.

Cherubim

Resurgence of new sculptors created new descriptions for cherubim. They depict those angels as cute babies with little wings, bow and arrow and a leaf to cover the gender part. John Milton added a harp to totally complete the cute makeover.

Sad to say, cherubim are not cute in the Bible. They are fearsome and monstrous looking. In the Bible, cherubim were half-human, and often with lion’s body and wings spread like that of an eagle (Ezekiel 10:14.) King Hiram’s throne was guarded by cherubim.

Seraphim

seraphimThe seraphim were described in the book of prophet Isaiah as heavenly beings with six wings (instead of two). Two of the wings are used for flying while the rest are used to cover their whole body. They also used those wings to cover their faces once they come near God. Seraphim are positioned flying above God’s throne.

Contrary to popular belief, angels never got a chance to sing in the Bible, though there are lots of singings going on in there. Maybe they can sing, however, the bible says nothing about them belting beautiful songs.

Now you know how angels actually look like, do you think you still want to have them by your side?
