To A Beloved Brother in the Crusade Against False Prophets

Dear Brother Tim Kurek,

In this dispensation, seldom can I find preachers or religious leaders with the same line of thinking as me. This happened during the time of Paul the Apostle.

20 For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. 
21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.

Most of the time, almost all preachers disagree with me.

2 TIMOTHY 4:16 
At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be laid to their charge. But now, I have found a friend in you.

MARK 9:38-40 
38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbade him, because he followeth not us. 
39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. 
40 For he that is not against us is on our part.

In my country of origin, the Philippines, five famous religious leaders with contradicting teachings and faith once connived to work out my expulsion from a television network where I have been airing the religious program “Ang Dating Daan” or the “The Old Path” — the longest running religious television program in the country, exposing religious frauds, in light of the word of God in the Bible. Incidentally, it is also the most awarded religious show in our country – even in the internet. It won the “Gawad Amerika Award” in Hollywood, United States of America as the “Most Informative Religious Program”.

Here are some of the Recognitions and Awards the religious program “Ang Dating Daan” or “The Old Path” has received for the last two decades:

For the fifth consecutive year, the website of “Ang Dating Daan” has won the Most Popular Website of the Philippines given by Philweb; gaining landslide victory over its closest competitors

These pastors and preachers are irritated by my untiring exposition of their unbiblical teachings and misleading doctrines. Others are even influencing government authorities to suspend or get rid of my program. In the Philippines, our group’s religious freedom and freedom of speech and press are essentially being suppressed by some authorities in government in 2007. No less than the commission on human rights in the Philippines’ National Capital Region (NCR) found after investigation that our human rights were violated by the Chairman of Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB), under the office of the President (2007).

Thousands upon thousands of people gathered in front of the Human Rights Commission in the Philippines to show their support to Brother Eli when the latter was indefinitely suspended by the MTRCB to appear in any television program. The Human Rights Commission later ruled in favor of Brother Eli stating that the MTRCB committed a grave abuse of authority against the famous preacher.

We were being prohibited by the MTRCB and the Kapisanan ng mga Broadkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP) to even mention the name and the erroneous doctrines of the Iglesia ni Cristo ni Manalo (Manalo’s Church of Christ), a group very influential to the then administration. I believe this prohibition is against our constitution and the jurisprudence and doctrines being upheld by the Supreme Court of the Republic of the Philippines. (See Reference Below)

The bedrock of freedom of religion is freedom of thought and it is best served by encouraging the marketplace of dueling ideas. When the luxury of time permits, the marketplace of ideas demands that speech should be met by more speech for it is the spark of opposite speech, the heat of colliding ideas that can fan the embers of truth.

These groups are very much like the group you are trying to expose in your country. They are advocates of their unbiblical “prosperity gospel”, thinking that religion and holiness is a means of gain.

1 TIMOTHY 6:5 
…and wrangling among men who are depraved in mind and bereft of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain.

Their pastors do prosper by their “prosperity gospel” at the expense of their poor members.

ROMANS 16:17-18 
17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

I visited your blogsite and I appreciate your effort in trying to expose also, the deceit being employed by religious leaders in your country. We are one in these crusades of trying to “snatch” people from the hands of these ‘propheteers’, or should I say, profiteers.

JUDE 1:23 (RSV)
…save some, by snatching them out of the fire; on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

These are the common denominators among false prophets: money and gain.

2 PETER 2:1-3 
1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you…

Nowhere in the books of the Old Testament, neither in the New Testament can anybody find that the meaning of prosperity is material wealth as these pastors of doom preach.

‘Shalom’ in Hebrew means safe, well, happy, etc., while ‘euodoo’ in Greek means success in reaching a goal. These words were translated in the English Bible as prosperity and to prosper respectively. They do not necessarily imply material wealth as these pastors and false prophets claim.

In the first century Christian Church, there were members whom we can consider as the poorest of the poor. They are not materially wealthy but are active members of the Church.

What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise the church of God and humiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not.

Most members of the primitive Christian Church are poor and hungry.

God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are… 

LUKE 6:20-21 
20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 
21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.

Their reward is reserved in heaven, not an assurance of wealth on earth.

LUKE 6:23 
Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

Lazarus died a beggar but was saved!

LUKE 16:19-22 
19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried…

Those that preach that to be a true Christian is to be rich and be blessed materially are worldly preachers and not of Christ.

Their end is destruction, their god is the belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.

These are people who love to be called pastor, reverend pastor, very reverend pastor, whose glory is in their shame. The word reverend was used only once in the King James Version of the Bible and was used to define the name of God Almighty.

PSALMS 111:9 
He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant forever: holy and reverend is his name.

Incidentally, you called me pastor in your comment on my last article; and while I will appreciate your constant visiting on my blog, I would appreciate it more if you will call me plainly and simply Brother Eli. Our Pastor or Shepherd worthy of that title is the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 PETER 2:25, 24 
25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls. 
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

There are pastors elected in the Church of God in the first century, but nowhere can you find anyone of them used the title “pastor”.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers…

They were called brethren by repentant sinners.

ACTS 2:37
Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Peter called Paul, a beloved brother — not beloved pastor.

2 PETER 3:15 
And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you…

The reason is simply because it is the teaching of Christ!

MATTHEW 23:8-9 
8 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.

Thank you for your concern, beloved brother. I am praying for you, also.

May God bless you.

For Reasons Right or Wrong, Jesus Christ Is Being Preached About

Christ is real

Another idiotic claim of atheists is that Jesus is imaginary. They even say they can prove it in less than five minutes. Many a times, I have encountered people who lie and deny the truth. But this man is a gross liar, reckless, and therefore, brainless. There are people named Santos (a Spanish word for saints), but in reality are evil. There are people whose name tells that they have brains, but they are brainless. When shall they ever grow brains? Maybe, not anymore.

This fool — not imaginary, but real — claims that he is educated and has college degrees in education. Pretending to believe in things scientific now denies the basis of his attacks towards God and the Bible.

Archeology is a branch of science. It was archeology which discovered a limestone with the name Pontius Pilate, a Roman official in the time of Tiberius Caesar who ordered the imposition of death on the Lord Jesus Christ. He was the same Pontius Pilate in the Roman History (Annals 15:44) recorded by the Roman historian Tacitus, and further confirmed by Josephus, a Jewish historian, in his book “Jewish Antiquities”, who ordered the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. How can a real person like Pilate, whose existence was proven scientifically and historically, order the death of imaginary person? Anybody who says that Jesus Christ is imaginary does not respect science: is a fool — an idiot!

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

A normally functioning ‘BRAIN’, MUST, SHALL declare things consistently. It is abnormal for anybody to stand on a given principle and deny it afterwards. If your basis of principle is science, then, you must stand by it consistently until you have proven your cause.

ROMANS 14:22
Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.

Physical, documentary, testimonial, analytical, and circumstantial evidences surrounding the existence of the Lord Jesus prove that He is not a myth. The discovery of Roman Coins proves the account on Matthew 22:17.

“Tell us therefore, what thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give
 tribute unto Caesar, or not? But Jesus perceived their
wickedness, and said, why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
Show me the tribute money.
And they brought unto him a penny.
And he saith unto them, whose is this image and
 superscription? They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he
 unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which
 are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”

The existence of ancient documents validated by science dating back to as early as 120 A.D. testifies to the works and the person of Jesus. The absence of ancient documents that disproves the existence of Jesus during those times proves that no enemy of Jesus (even the most bitter of them) did have the courage to write anything disproving His existence. In fact, what they have found are, allegedly, ancient documents like: “The Gospel of Judas”, reporting negative things about Jesus: claiming that Jesus married Mary Magdalene; have produced children by her, just to prove further that Jesus really has existed on earth. This, again, testifies to the authenticity of the Bible.

15 It’s true that some preach about Christ because they are jealous. But others preach about Christ to help me in my work.
16 The last group acts out of love. They know I have been put here to stand up for the good news.
17 But the others preach about Christ only to get ahead. They are not honest and true. They think they can stir up trouble for me while I am being held by chains.
18 But what does it matter? Here is the important thing. Whether for reasons that are right or wrong, Christ is being preached about. That makes me very glad. And I will continue to be glad.

I am very much honored in believing the Lord Jesus Christ. Report that He is good, it is good! Report negative things about Him, it is good! Deny Him and His existence, it is good! Why? Because you are a fool if you deny somebody who did not exist at all.

Imagine, about thirty (30) ancient documents validated by science, written by a doctor, a lawyer, fishermen, and a tax collector of the Roman Empire — most of whom are eyewitnesses to the person, miracle, passion, death, and resurrection of Christ, being contested by a BRAINless man in our time. Tell your lies to the marines; not just to ordinary marines, but to the smartest of them — the American Marines; and I believe they will not believe you. Tell it to Dan Brown, and he will curse you: because he believes that Jesus married Mary Magdalene!

LUKE 1:1-3 (NKJV)
1 Inasmuch as many have taken in hand to set in order a narrative of those things which have been fulfilled among us,
2 just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word delivered them to us,
3 it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write to you an orderly account, most excellent Theophilus…

God Bless,

Brother Eli Soriano

The Dilemma of a Faithful Husband Who Is a Misled Child of God

Dear Bro. Eli,

I’m one of the million followers of your popular radio and TV program for more than 15 years if I’m not mistaken.

I’m a born again Christian for 19 years on September 29 to be exact; and my wife, too, is a volunteer in the ‘tellering’ ministry; We are workers in one of the churches in Quezon City located in front of SM City North Edsa.

Since 2006, I stopped because of the dirty management and what the workers do inside the church. The head pastor knows me very well because I’m one of the pioneers of his church; and even requested me to be a bodyguard every Sunday wherever he goes; But there were times that he couldn’t discipline his workers or co-pastor. Now, I am only a regular attendee every Sunday.

My other concerns:

1. Ephesians 5:21-25 states that: “Wife submit yourself unto your husband; and husband love your wife as yourself.” We love each other even though she couldn’t give me a child. We’ve been married for more than 7 years and that time I’m 31 and she was 36, now she was 45 and now I lost my hope to have a family. Sometimes the devil tries to convince me to find another woman, but I will rebuke immediately because I love my wife and I’m very faithful to her.

(Note: What shall I do if my wife will not submit herself because she has a good job and earn a good income and will have a decision of her own? I gave my life to her since we’ve been married.)

2. We fight sometimes because I asked her to resign in her Ministry because she do not have time for me because she is very busy and over pressured by her job from Monday to Saturday. On Sundays, she is very busy counting money — how much her church have earned (laugh). She loves her ministry. I told her that she is serving the wrong God. She loves her ministry because of her friends — they are the same as her not reading a bible. I said that she worships money and the television scandal showbiz every Sunday.

Bro Eli, I’m willing now to become ‘Ang Dating Daan’ (The Old Path) member. I hope that you will answer my question.

Very Truly Yours,

Brother Loy

Dear Brother Loy,

The right to obey God’s Law is in the Church — the True Church.

But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come…

God’s habitation or ‘house’ is the place He has chosen to put His name into and also the place or jurisdiction where His commandments must be fulfilled.

1 TIMOTHY 3:15
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

It is in the house of God or the Church of God that the real Jesus Christ of the Bible reigns.

And having a high priest over the house of God…

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus…

HEBREWS 3:6 (New International Version – UK)
But Christ was faithful as a Son Who is Head of God’s house. We are of God’s house if we keep our trust in the Lord until the end. This is our hope.

The power of God’s word and commandments works among the faithful in the house or the Church of God.

13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews…

In fact, it is within the jurisdiction of the House of God that holiness and the Commandments must be observed.

PSALMS 93:5 (Revised Standard Version)
Thy decrees are very sure; holiness befits thy house, O LORD, for evermore.

EZRA 7:23 (Douay-Rheims Version)
All that belongeth to the rites of the God of heaven, let it be given diligently in the house of the God of heaven: lest his wrath should be enkindled against the realm of the king, and of his sons.

It is in the house of God or the Church of God that His truth has the power to transform lives.

1 PETER 1:22
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently…

The Spirit instrumental in the purification of souls is in the Church of God.

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling…

The body wherein God’s Spirit dwells is the Church headed by Christ.

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

It is not a thing to wonder that even if you are reading the Bible and your wife hears verses of the Bible the power of God’s word does not effectually work within you because you are in the wrong congregation.

The love of money is the root cause of so many misleading teachings of churches which are not of God but founded by men.

1 TIMOTHY 6:10 (The American Standard Version)
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil: which some reaching after have been led astray from the faith, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

I am happy to have read that you are a faithful husband to your wife. I believe that you are a child of God being misled only by false prophets. What you have observed in your church — mismanagement and wrongdoings of pastors and workers — is a clear indication that the church where you belong is not of God. Allowing wrongdoings in the church disqualifies your head pastor of his claim that he is of God.

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Regarding your desire to have a child, remember that God is the only Person that can give you what you wanted. Old age is not a hindrance for God to give a faithful servant like Abraham a son.

GENESIS 18:10-14
10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.
11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

HEBREWS 11:11-12
11 Through faith also Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

If it is not God’s will for you to have a child, so let it be — His will be done. Thank God for He knows best.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

I am personally inviting you and your wife to be workers for the Church of God in the Bible, and you are most welcome. God bless you.

Sincerely in Christ,

Bro. Eli Soriano

The Revelation of the Great Mystery of Husband and Wife

the wisdom of marriage

Question #10: Why do Christians get divorced at the same rate as non-Christians?


A Christian is defined in the Bible as a disciple or follower of Christ.

JOHN 12:26
If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

Further, a true disciple is someone who continues in Christ’s words.

JOHN 8:31
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

Watched or alone, a true disciple continues to follow the ‘word’.

Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

A Christian couple is admonished by God to live under God’s law ‘until death do them part’.

For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

The preceding verse is a very equitable and sensible law coming from a wise Lawmaker that knows the caprices of man’s flesh. Whosoever will say that He is imaginary, is indecent, vulgarly lewd, and deprived of normal and common sense. Whosoever will say that God is imaginary because somebody did not obey His sensible laws is senseless, numb, and void of reasons.

A Christian couple is commanded to keep marriage undefiled.

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for God will judge the immoral and adulterous.

True Christians do not intentionally divorce their partner.

10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

It is clear that the Almighty God teaches Christians to live a responsible moral life. It is not God’s fault if somebody given the free will (because we were not created robots like these imaginary people) disobeys God’s sensible laws. Granting, without conceding, that the rate of Christian divorce is the same as non-Christians who do not believe in God, it does not mean that God is imaginary. This is not a rational way of thinking and analyzing things. Does your being an atheist make you a better person than a Christian? Tell that to the marines! My God tells me otherwise.

The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

Belief in the Almighty God of the Bible has created innumerable law abiding, responsible, peace-loving and compassionate citizens of the world. Unbelief thereof has produced ‘monsters’ like Hitler. I firmly believe that real Christians will not divorce their partners. The statistics that these imaginary people have used to malign the Christian God was not conducted among true Christians!

I have been a minister of the gospel in the Church of God for more than 50 years, and the divorce that I have known and witnessed among our peers does not even account to one percent of all the marriages performed in the Church.

Let me tell you something: There are many professing Christians, but not real Christians!

TITUS 1:16
They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

A wise and an educated person looks at statistics with wisdom, prudence, and reservation. Maybe the reason why atheists’ rate of divorce is lower than alleged Christians’ rate of divorce is that if a Christian’s partner is found to be an infidel, you have to put her away!

11 But rather I wrote to you not to associate with any one who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber — not even to eat with such a one.
12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?
13 God judges those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.”

Perhaps, for atheists, like these imaginary people, you can just let your partners go unfaithful, and stomach the immoral acts of you both: After all, there is no God that disciplines your actions.

I do not want to deprive my readers of one important truth! When God said that, “…whatsoever God has joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:6), it does not only mention of the relationships of a husband and a wife. There is even a greater mystery in this, that God wants us to understand.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

Christ and the true Church are inseparable by God’s will!

Do you want to study statistics? Divorce? Learn it from a reliable source. There is no circumstance that will separate the Church from Christ!

ROMANS 8:35, 37-39
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Not even the 10 idiotically invalid questions of these imaginary people can separate me from my God!

It does make sense, doesn’t it?

God Bless,


Love Is Lovelier the Second Time Around — with God

Forgiveness between husband and wife

Hello Bro. Eli, 

I know for a fact that anyone who commits adultery or concubinage commits a grave sin against God and the espouse of that person. My question is how evil is this sin? Can it be forgiven by a human being? How can someone move on from this devastating situation? Can the victim of this sin truly forgive and forget? How can the trust and confidence be brought back if lost by deceit and betrayal? Please give pieces of advice as I have been badly hurt by this trial. 


Dear Mara,

There are things done which are impossible to be undone, but what is impossible with man can be possible to God. God, through His power, can undo what man has done. This was the faith of Abraham.

HEBREWS 11:17-19 
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 
18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 
19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

Speaking of human emotion, infidelity of a beloved partner is one of the bitterest situations which some can not bear, resulting most of the times in crimes and the destruction of a family. This is the work of satan the devil. The family is the basic unit of society, and satan is up to destroy the whole human society. So, our first line of defense against the caprices of satan is to keep the family intact.

Wounds, physical or emotional, can be healed by time, as an old song says “…but time can bring a change of heart; and love can make another start. Someday you may comeback to me to stay; but who can say how soon?” But by God’s power a wound can instantaneously be healed the soonest possible time.

How? Faith in God’s word can erase bitterness, anger, hatred, jealousy, and the likes. Remember the prayer “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us”?

MATTHEW 6:14-15 
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Committing adultery and fornication is not only a sin against God and against the spouse, but a sin against the body of the offender.

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

You may ask why a person can sin against his own body. The answer is simple. Smoking, drinking intoxicating liquor, abuse of eating (gluttony), and the use of prohibited drugs is against one’s own being. Gluttons practically kill their own body, plaguing their bodies with cardiovascular diseases because of uncontrolled consumption of foods. Gluttony is evil, biblically speaking.

LUKE 21:34 
Take heed to yourselves, that your hearts be, at no time, stupefied by gluttony and ebriety and worldly care; and so that day come upon you unaware.

PROVERBS 23:20-21
20 Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:
21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

The spread of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) to so many millions around the world is mainly due to infidelity and disregard of God’s Law.


Today, there are 37 million people worldwide living with HIV/AIDS. In the past 25 years, 20 million people have died from AIDS. By 2010, 44 million children will have been orphaned by the disease. Despite recent gains in medicine, 3 million people with AIDS died in 2003. (

We must consider surrounding circumstances before we can say that adultery and fornication are grave sins. This is the guide I will give you: Any sin committed by humans outside of the knowledge of the truth can be forgiven by God; and if God can forgive such, the more we must forgive.

1 TIMOTHY 1:13 
Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

We must also consider the situation surrounding the commission of such acts. Was it intentionally done by your partner; or was he or she forced by someone who initiated the act. Whatever the case may be, my belief is that God can undo things that were done by humans.

A torn garment can be mended; but “how can you mend a broken heart”? Here’s how:

And no one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch tears away from the garment, and a worse tear is made.

The patch that can be used to cover the tear or repair the damage done by infidelity is fidelity. The patch of fidelity is love. If you really love your partner, you have all the reasons and courage to forgive, especially, if he or she has not yet received the knowledge of the truth.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

David had committed infidelity when he took the wife of Uriah, but he repented, did not repeat it again, and was forgiven.

PSALMS 32:5 
I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

To forgive and to forget is attainable by the human mind and heart. God, with an eternal memory, can forgive and forget our sins that we committed against him.

For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

The only advice I can give is the advice given in the Bible, which states:

But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

I believe in the song “Love is lovelier the second time around”, especially if that second time is coupled with faith and trust in God’s word that can instantaneously heal the wound in your heart.

May God help you.

Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor


First of all, I want to make it clear to everybody that it is not my goal and never will it be to disgrace or humiliate anybody personally. I am not against any human person, but on the spirit of wickedness that is in him;

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.

And my weapons are not ammunitions or mortars, but the wisdom of God that I have learned from the Scriptures.

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) 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;

I preach not myself; not my goodness nor my infirmities (because I am nothing), but the glory of my God and His Son Jesus Christ.

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.

When I preach and speak, I speak for Christ — His truth; not minding what will be its adverse effect on my person. I know that telling the truth will reap, for me, more enemies than friends; nevertheless, I must speak for Christ.

For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

I have invited to take a ‘U-turn’ and dig deeper to find the roots of all the fraud and deceit that now dominates almost all sectors of society — even the religious helm of it.

In my search, I have found that there are so many irrational views, erroneous teachings, evil ideologies, and misleading information, wherein deceit and fraud are always in essence, but hidden.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses, a worldwide religious activity teaching that ‘Jehovah’ is the real and personal name of God, claiming more than 16 million adherents, has no less than the common denominator of all the false religions prophesied in the Scriptures.

1 JOHN 4:1 
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

A very noticeable example is their belief of the name ‘Jehovah’. According to a 1950 edition of the “New World Bible Translation” of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, they are inclined to view the pronunciation YAHWEH as more correct, but retained the word Jehovah because it was popular among people. Meaning, adopting the word Jehovah is not for the sake of truth, but of popularity.

But there is a deceit!

After a few years of exposition in radio and television, wherein I extensively tackled the topic about the word Jehovah, I have noticed that deceit was employed in the next editions of the same Bible translation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. (See the difference below) In the 1950 edition, they (the Jehovah’s Witnesses) were the ones inclined to view that YAHWEH is more correct than Jehovah. In the 1985 edition, after realizing that my criticisms are rational, they deliberately changed the preface that they were not the ones “inclined to view” that YAHWEH is more correct, but “many”; throwing their garbage to other people’s backyard. Read the reference below very carefully.

Granting (without accepting), that “YAHWEH” is more correct than “Jehovah”, how can there be any pinch of correctness in the word Jehovah to compare it to YAHWEH when their own book says that Jehovah is a later invention and not present in the Hebrew nor the Greek original language used in the Bible? It was not known to all ancients whether Jews or Christians, according to their own book. (See reference below)

And if it is true that YAHWEH is more correct than Jehovah, as they have said, why can’t we find (all over the world) a single kingdom hall bearing the name “Kingdom Hall of Yahweh’s Witnesses”? Can you imagine the deceit being employed by these people?

It has been habitual to the Jehovah’s Witnesses to change their teachings every now and then. They prophesied the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as early as 1914. When it did not happen, they changed it again and again until scores of members left the society of these “false witnesses”.

Quick Facts: 

1914 was one of the more important estimates of the start of the war of Armageddon by the Jehovah’s Witnesses (Watchtower Bible and Tract Society). They computed 1914 from prophecy in the book of Daniel, Chapter 4. The writings referred to “seven times”. The WTS interpreted each “time” as equal to 360 days, giving a total of 2520 days. This was further interpreted as representing 2520 years, measured from the starting date of 607 BCE. This gave 1914 as the target date.

1914, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, 1975 and 1994 were other dates that the Watchtower Society predicted. 1975 looked likely as it was computed as the 6000th anniversary of the creation of Adam in the Garden of Eden in 4026 BCE. They interpreted Psalms 90:10 as defining the length of a generation to be 80 years. Since 1914 plus 80 equals 1994, they predicted Armageddon would occur around that year. The latest estimate was 6000 years after the creation of Eve, for which no date can be determined with any accuracy.

To the Jehovah’s Witnesses and my readers, remember that the ninth of the Ten Commandments says, “Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor” (Exodus 20:16); it will be a greater sin against God if somebody will be witnessing something false about God.

Maybe you will ask why I said in my previous article that my taste buds have been deceived. Well, it’s a side trip along our ‘U-turn’ as we continue traveling. I ask you to be patient.

Who started all these lies being witnessed by the “false witnesses” of a false name: JEHOVAH? I invite you to read my next article.

God Bless You!

Perfect Justice in God's Perfect Time

The God of justice

Dear Bro. Eli,

Please help me. I don’t know what to feel anymore. It seems like something is attacking my belief in God.

It all started when I read an article about children and women, lots of them, being sold as prostitutes all over the world. Most of the children don’t even know what sex is yet. These women and children are constantly raped, until they won’t pass as a virgin anymore, according to the article I’ve read. And when the children grow up, they don’t know anything but to sell sex so they have no choice but to do it to survive. The numbers of the victims are plenty, Bro. Eli. They are innocent children but they have been dragged into this kind of business. I believe you’ve also heard of this kind of thing, sex trafficking which is a big business done by many countries, especially in the third world.

My problem is that, I don’t know what to think anymore. Something is lingering in my mind, telling me not to believe in God anymore, although I’m really, really trying hard to disregard this thought inside my mind but whenever I think of what’s happening to these innocent children and poor women, it really makes me sad. Why does God allow this to happen to many innocent Children? It makes me wonder also if God exists (although I really try hard to fight this thought) because of things like this that happen. I’m sorry if it seemed I’m questioning God’s authority, but I don’t really know what to do and think anymore. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for being so weak at this time but I really need your help in this. 

What should I do? Please help me Bro. Eli. 


Dear Marcus,

Evil is everywhere. The whole world now “lieth in wickedness”.

1 JOHN 5:9
And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

The root cause of all evil is the rebellious Satan, that now deceives the world.

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

There are religions or faith which do not believe in the existence of the devil. One good example is one of the false Christs prophesied by the Bible in the person of Jose Luis Miranda, which was interviewed by NBC, and said in international television that the devil or Satan does not exist.

Some of the teachings of Jose Luis De Jesus Miranda, leader of Growing in Grace are:

…Sin no longer exists
…There’s no such thing as “the devil”
…Prayer is a waste of time
…All religious leaders are liars

The Bible never speaks of vain things or things unreal.

Do ye think that the Scripture saith in vain…

Every word of God conveys truth and wisdom.

PSALMS 119:160
Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever.

All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.

The word of God speaks of the devil and demons. They are realities, although not seen by the human eyes. Their works and devices are manifested among human beings.

For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

The devil is not only concerned about the leaders of the world, but also to judges, magistrates, and religious leaders. Their victims are the innocent, the ignorant, and the poor.

JOB 9:24
The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

2 CORINTHIANS 11:13-15
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Some of their victims are the unsuspecting.

ROMANS 16:17-18 (ASV)
17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them.
18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent.

They even show miracles to deceive people.

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

These are some of the tangible realities proving the existence of the devil and demons in this world. Anybody who will say that the devil and demons do not exist is showing their utter ignorance of God’s word and realities.

The evil that you are mentioning about children and women being exploited as sex slaves of the opportunistic, abusive, rich, and powerful people in society are works of the devil.

JAMES 3:15-16
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

The evil that you see and hear makes you doubt of the existence of God. I am sorry to hear this from you. This is the common thinking of people who spend a little effort — or none at all, in searching for realities in life. They say that if God exists and is real, why does He allow these things to happen? But this thinking is neither logical nor scientific.

Scientifically, chaos is opposed to order. Mutation is opposed to the regular characteristics of a gene or a chromosome. It is an alteration of the normal process.

Do you believe that we have things, traits, and characteristics of every existing thing in this world which we may consider normal? I believe you do. Normally, a parent cares for his or her child. Normally, a hen cares for its chicks. Normally, a dove feeds its young. Normal people have in them the feeling of love, care, compassion, and respect for others. This is reality. But there are those who murder and rape their own children. There are those who have no pity towards others. These are things abnormal. All these things are caused by the influence of a reality that exists: the devil.

The existence of the devil proves the existence of God. God hates evil. He does not want evil to happen to anyone; but there is another reality to consider. He has given His creatures the power to choose between good and evil. He made us with the power to decide for ourselves, to choose, to dislike — making us better than a robot. I will — and perhaps you, also — not want to be a robot. The greatest gift of God in our being is the power to decide for ourselves. He wants us to obey Him at will and not by force.

If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

The cause of evil is the improper use of our free will. But we must not doubt God’s justice. Victims of evil will be rewarded justice in God’s perfect time. The question with some of us is we only consider what is ‘now’ and what is ‘seen’. God is eternal; and there is eternity that comes ahead. Surely, every evil act will be punished and every victim will be comforted.

ISAIAH 13:11
And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

He is not slow or slack about His promise, but is long-suffering for He waits for sinners to repent and realize their mistakes; and does not want anybody to perish.

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

This is being abused by many, but it will satisfy God’s justice for them when they are punished with eternal damnation.

Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

God is a God of perfect justice. Hope in your heart that there is a time — a perfect time for God’s intervention… and it is coming soon!

May God enlighten you.

God Bless you.
