Impossible that the Catholic Church Was Built by Christ!

5/09/2015 68 Comments

How could Christ have built the Catholic Church with all its beliefs mixed with lies, folklore, supposed visions of Mary appearing and disappearing and giving instructions, and idolatry beginning with man-conceived notions of hierarchy where Mary is a negotiator and God an unreachable, unknowable X? Using the Bible as usual, let us start with Peter talking since the Catholic Church makes a mountain of lore about Peter being their first Pope.

MATTHEW 16:16-18 
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

There are delicate matters in the preceding verses a careful student of the Bible must consider. When Peter said, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God,” it is a revelation from the Father. The speaker saying, “Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church” is the Lord Jesus Christ. Behind these verses are biblical truths of antiquity! Let us consider. 

As early as the time of Adam, God foretold the coming of the Messiah or the Christ.

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

This was foretold again in the time of Moses,

I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

To give my readers advanced food for thought which we will clarify later, the Prophet mentioned in Deuteronomy 18:18, being Jesus Christ in reality, will speak the Father’s own words (“my words in his mouth”). When Christ said, “Upon this rock I will build my church,” it is the “Church of God” and not His own church - not the church of Christ that others perceived it to be). It must be understood that the Father will be the one to build and not the Son! The main reason is that Christ is part of the Church being its foundation! 

At the time of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Jews who did not know were rebuked by the Lord Jesus for their ignorance about the “signs of the times.”

MATTHEW 16:1-4 
1 The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would show them a sign from heaven. 
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. 
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather today: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah. And he left them, and departed.

The issue is: Is this person doing things not known among the Israelites the Christ or Messiah? 

The reason they were asking for a sign is that they knew that, in His coming, the Messiah shall fulfill the prophecies concerning Him; but their ignorance of the scriptures deprived them of the understanding necessary to be sure who really is the Christ! Nevertheless, there were a few select people who used biblical analysis and came up with a predictive notion that Jesus is the Christ. Based on prophecy and experience, this woman in these three verses, manifests her discernment that the man she faced was Christ.

JOHN 4:19, 25, 26 
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 
25 The woman saith unto him, I know that Messiah cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 
29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?

But there are side issues to be resolved first. Is Jesus, the son of Mary, the Christ? These exchanges that follow can help us understand the reactions of people finding Jesus and what they thought of him – still leading to the thought that Jesus is the Christ. This time, it is with Philip whom Jesus asked to follow him. (Does commanding to follow one usually happen with ordinary men?).Then Philip tells Nathanael what they found, echoing the woman who found Jesus at a well. Nathanael tests Jesus.

JOHN 1:43-49 
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. 
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 
46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see. 
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! 
48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 
49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

This is a demonstration of Jesus having knowledge that ordinary men do not have. He could tell of the character of men he was dealing with. Nathanael was surprised that Jesus could appraise him as “having no guile” or being honest and not deceitful. “When did you come to know me?” or “Have we met?” was yet demonstrated as Jesus being able to see things before they happen. Nathanael was sitting under a fig tree. Philip called him to show Jesus and Nathanael stood up to go see the Christ. Before Nathanael stood up to go to Jesus, the latter already saw where Nathanael was, and more: He knew what nation Nathanael belonged to and what character Nathanael had! 

There are works that will prove that the Messiah has come. He will come with wonderful works.

MATTHEW 11:3-6 
3 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? 
4 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and show John again those things which ye do hear and see: 
5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 
6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

He will be coming from three (3) distinct places: Bethlehem of Judea, Egypt, and Nazareth. The Chapters in Micah and Matthew point to them.

MICAH 5:2 
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

MATTHEW 2:13-15 
13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. 
14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: 
15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

MATTHEW 2:19-23 
19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, 
20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life. 
21 And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel. 
22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee: 
23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

That time was the appointed time that the Jews should have understood as the time of the coming of the Messiah. But they did not.

DANIEL 9:24-26 
24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. 
25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. 
26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

All available unbiased and written history - biblical or otherwise -points to the son of Mary who lived on this earth 2,000 years ago as the MESSIAH! Jesus Christ lived during the incumbency of the fourth kingdom prophesied in the book of Daniel that is the Roman Empire. 

We shift the scene to where a king was direly in need of someone to interpret his dream – a dream that was not only bizarre but also foreboding and he was much disturbed. 

In Chapter 2 in the book of Daniel, King Nebuchadnezzar dreams of a statue with body parts made of different materials: (1) head of gold, (2) chest and arms of silver, (3) belly and thighs of bronze, and (4) legs of iron with feet of iron and clay.

DANIEL 2:32-35 
32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, 
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. 
34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces. 
35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Daniel, then a prisoner, interprets these body parts as four kingdoms (verses 37-42): The Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar is the head of gold. Chest and arms of silver convey that after Nebuchadnezzar an inferior kingdom shall arise. The belly and thighs of bronze point to a third kingdom that shall rule over all the earth. The legs of iron with feet of iron and clay is a fourth kingdom, strong as iron.

DANIEL 2:36-41 (KJV) 
36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. 
37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 
38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. 
39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. 
40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 
41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

But the feet and toes partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron show it shall be a divided kingdom – this fourth kingdom.

DANIEL 2:42 (KJV) 
And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

This fourth kingdom is foretold that “they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” Why?

DANIEL 2:43 (KJV) 
And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

The Kingdom of Christ is also set up – one that shall break all these kingdoms of men – including this fourth kingdom.

DANIEL 2:44 (KJV) 
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.

The fourth kingdom is the Roman Empire, symbolic of what will be the Catholic Church! Let us go further. 

In Daniel 7 as support to Daniel 2, Daniel receives visions of four beasts coming out of the sea, as well as a vision of "one like the Son of Man" coming up to the Ancient of Days. 

This time the fourth kingdom is more clearly zoomed into. It is a beast of 10 horns. Take note of the terms, “fourth beast,” “horn that had eyes and a mouth that spake very great things,” “the same horn made war with the saints,” and “until the Ancient of days came.”So this fourth beast cum kingdom would be having its field day of great power and glory until “the Ancient of days” will intervene. That is Christ.

DANIEL 7:19-22(KJV) 
19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; 
20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. 
21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 
22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

To be continued. Be patient and you will come to know the true church of the Bible. 

Yours truly, 

Brother Eli


  1. Christ did not built the Church but the Father. Christ is the Foundation of the Church.
    Thanks be to GOD Mr Controversy for another wonderful blog.

  2. Behind the verses are biblical truths of antiquity. Time to know them. It's high time to know the TRUTH. And maybe because I care for the salvation of my Catholic loved ones, friends and acquiantances that's why this blog is worth sharing. Will be waiting for the continuation of this great revelation of truth.

    From Limerick, Ireland supporting your blog. Always with great wisdom & truth. All Bible-based.

  3. its getting more exciting than watching a tele novela.. next episode please brother eli!:-)

  4. Roman Catholic Church feeding people with many lies and claims now being exposed. Can't wait for the next part of this article.

  5. thanks GOD for this wonderful blog ,,it is really impossible that catholic church was built by Christ, proving that all their teaching was falsE...PLS DO READ THE BLOG...

  6. It is impossible that catholic church was built by God because at first place there is no word catholic mentioned in the bible.

    1. I hope you do not have a trinitarian faith--that word is not in the Bible either. Or that Jesus, the Son, is consubstantial or of one being with the Father--that word is not in the Bible either. In fact, you don't even know what is in the Bible from the Bible itself--because the Bible does not say what is part of it. So, good luck with your limiting your faith to the Bible alone.

  7. The TRUTH simply cannot br ignored,

  8. Thanks be to God Bro. Eli for this very profound explanation. It is very CLEAR that Jesus never established the Catholic Church. God was the one who built the TRUE Church bearing HIS NAME- THE CHURCH OF GOD! The foundation of the true Church is Jesus Christ Himself, " The Solid Rock" Thanks be to God!

  9. This blog is worth reading indeed! GRACIAS DE DIOS!

    JESUS CHRIST will never build his Church based in lies and idolatry. Catholic doctrines as noted are contrary to the Bible or to the Christian doctrines. This proves that they are not founded by Christ.

  10. Bro. Eli's assertion (regarding the impossibility that the Catholic church was built by Christ) becomes an undeniable fact considering the biblical basis from where his logical contentions are coming from.

    For those who honestly want to find truth, this article is more than enough basis to believe that the Catholic church is not the one founded by Christ. However, those bible unbelievers who got used to pagan traditional practices would stick to their belief notwithstanding the track record (wickedness tradition) of many of their so-called Popes:

  11. If you're born into a wrong religion, just leave it. It makes perfect sense.

  12. Without a careful analysis and rigid investigation of different events that had transpired in the history. Starting from the time of the prophets, who had prophesied the manifestation of Christ until the time of the apostles who had witnessed the very existence of the Messiah, it would be impossible to come into an envitable conclusion that the Catholic Church was not built by Christ himself. The origin of this church can easily be traced back to the reign of Roman Empire as what was told by a legit Roman historian,Tacitus. These are the things that the Roman Catholic Church would not want their members to know and that's why Mr.Controversy is continually exposing the extraordinary of religious frauds. Your extreme efforts to inform the general public are deeply appreciated we'll surely wait for more controversial expositions!

  13. I thank God for letting me know the truth I'm looking for. Grateful I am because all my doubts about God's existence are totally eradicated. It's because of Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon. Their candidness of exposing the wrong beliefs of various religious organization made me think carefully and logically than before.

    This blog is another excellent piece. It exposes the erroneous beliefs of catholic faith. If you're man of God, you will not die there. Only the spiritually blind couldn't understand this but those who recognize the voice of the Lord will surely listen to His voice.

    So, to my friends, relatives, colleagues as well as enemies in faith: Time to read and be informed. Investigate. Make sure what you believe and follow. It must be BIBLICAL.

    Thanks be to God.

  14. Jesus the Son of God build only 1 Church 33AD not other Church ...
    Jesus did not build the 45,000 protestants denomination!
    Impossible for Jesus to build other church that will only contradict His teachings!

    The is only 1 Church Jesus Build with the following 4 Marks:

    1. One
    2. Holy
    3. Catholic
    4. Apostolic

    If your group has no at least 1 of the Marks ... you are just Pretending Christians ... :(

    1. Nice, OPINION! Bravo!

      BUT my thumbs up to Bro. Eli Soriano. You know why? Investigate more. Read more. If I am not mistaken you have a scientific and logical mind
      (Hey! You don't believe on hearsays nor gossips, do you?).

    2. Is these so-called "marks" that you're claiming somewhat biblical? If so, can you help us find such verses that contains the word "catholic" in the bible. Enlighten us please.

    3. where did you find those marks?
      are we reading the same bible?
      because if the basis of your faith is the bible, there is no such thing as "4 marks"

    4. This comment has been removed by the author.

    5. @Bro. Bodick,

      The Church that follows God's teaching in whole is the church headed by Christ and founded by God. Do you really believe that Catholic Church is headed by Christ wherein its doctrine contradicts the Bible? The time is coming and now is the time to investigate and seek for the church built by God and headed by Christ. Try Bro. Eli Soriano's preaching and the MCGI.

    6. @Bro.Bodick

      While it is true that there is only 1 church built by GOD, NOT ALL of your supposed MARKS will conform with how Catholicism existed particularly of being (2)HOLY. Holiness in catholic church are all hypocrisy. You find it out and you'll see why.

  15. thanks to god for getting me out of that false religion all the teachings is not biblical invented by them.

  16. Always waiting for your new Blog Bro Eli

  17. Panahon para gumising mga kababayan naming Katoliko!!!! #CatholicChurchNotBuiltByChrist

  18. If only the catholic people spend some of their time reading this blog, they will find more knowledge and information about their religion than what they get from the teachings of their leaders. Thanks be to GOD for this blog.

  19. Truly, Bro. Eli Is God-sent preacher our present time. To God be the glory.

  20. A very complicated things in the bible that only a true Messenger of God can explain in our time. Thanks be to God and to our Lord Jesus.

  21. God of heaven set up a kingdom which is the church through Christ which is the foundation and it shall stand forever never the catholic built it. To the catholic people spend time reading the bible you will find the truth and if cannot fully understand ask Bro Eli and he answer's you biblically, this is a very complicated issue follow the blog and learn more. To God Be The Glory.

  22. Our Lord warns us not to think more than what is already written through Saint Paul's letter ( I Cor 4:6), so it is very impossible to claim that a church is built by God and headed by Lord Jesus Christ if they practice the other way around - doctrines that are not written in the Scriptures but merely added by their leaders for their own interests.

    This blog of Mr. Controversy is getting deeper and deeper for able us to understand that Catholic Church is not of God. The Scriptures and the history is pointing in one direction that this church is man-made.

    Thanks be to God we have Mr. Controversy to expose Catholic Church's long-period of deception. We just pray that our friends and relatives be open-minded on these things. May God help them to understand.

  23. Why take sides and argue when we just have to talk to the Holy Spirit and let him guide and reveal the truth. God bless everyone on this blog that the truth be revealed to you

    1. @gerard roch,

      it is the Bible who told us to investigates and takes good side (Romans 12:9) . Arguments make things clearer, help to reveal the truth among false doctrines. If nobody will argue about things we see and practice without basis, we will fall under blind-followers category. And we do not want to be that way, do you?

      There are too many spirits out there, how can we differ the one Holy if we do not know how to discern if its the truth or not? The Bible will guide us through the Holy Spirit via the preacher sent by God. Many preachers out there use the Bible but they interpret it in their own understanding. Even understanding must came from God, given to the preacher He chose to preach His words.
      Hear these preachers you knew and Bro. Eli Soriano of Members of Church International (The Old Path Program) and for sure you will see their differences.

  24. thanks be to God for mr. controversy this will be a wake up call to all catholics

  25. Don't be ignorant and foolish while reading the blog. Its for the good of everybody caught in this false religion with their fraud doctrines! There is so many of them but yet they are too unknowing.. Thanks be to God for this wonderful blog!

  26. thanks be to God because He sent a man like you Bro. Eli. To God be the Glory

  27. God don't resides in your heart punong puno ng Hatred sa Catholico ika nga ni Kristo wag kang mang husga dahil ikaw huhusgahan din lang ng Diyos wala tayo sa position para laitin ang ibang relihiyon kung may mali sa paniniwalang katoliko let the lord be judge not you. ni hindi mo nga alam kung ilang books ang nakapaloob sa bibliya because bible is a summary of many books and how many are they if you can answer that?, atsaka ni hindi mo maisummarize ang bibliya sa iisang salita lang. ramdam ko rin na nilalalamon ka na ng iyong galit kagaya ng iyong leader na si Bro. Eli Soriano na punong puno ng kayabangan sa harap ng Diyos huh!. now if you can answer my questions I will be with you and we will build a relegion and Titled "Ang Dating Saan" kasi hahanapin natin ang tunay na Diyos ang tunay na makadiyos ay mapagkumbaba sa tao, at ipinakita ito ni Jesus Crist sa kanyang pagparito sa lupa. hindi iyong mag yabang at puno ng hatred sa kanyang kapawa nakuha mo ang ibig kong sabihin.

    1. @Mikel Bubble,

      Kung may mali dapat itama ng nakakaalam ng tama. Kung alam mong lason ang iinumin ng kapatid mo na nakakubli sa isang sugar-coated wrapper, anong gagawin mo? Hindi ka ba kikilos?

      Si Bro. Eli Soriano, nakakaalam kung ano ang tama, pagdating sa Bibliya mayroon siyang karunungang wala sa ibang mangangaral, at sa palagay ko kung nakikinig sa kaniyang pangangaral mapapansin mo iyon. Kaya naman itinuturo niya ang tama sa lahat ng maaabot niyang mga tao, sa awa at tulong Dios, kahit mahirap para sa kaniya at maraming paninirang ibinabato sa kaniya, sige pa rin siya sa pangangaral. Handa siyang sumagot sa mga tanong ng mga tao patungkol sa relihiyon at pananampalataya.

      Ang pagsasabi ng totoo hindi po kayabangan iyon. Ang ipinagyayabang namin sa MCGI/Ang Dating Daan ay ay aming Dios na sinasampalatayanan, we are also proud na kami ay may mangangaral ma katulad ni Bro. Eli at Bro. DAniel na handang magsakripisyo alang-alang sa gospel ng Panginoong Hesus.

      Pingkakamalian ninyo na naghahasik kami ng hatred lalo na sa Katoliko, samantalang wala ka namang mababasa dito na hate namin ang mga Katoliko. Ang mga comments na nasa ibaba at nasa itaas ay pawang encouragement sa lahat na mag-investigate! Huwag magpadaya sa mga pastor at pari na ang itinuturo ay walang basehang Biblical.

      Sana magkaroon kayo ng sapat na lakas ng loob na makinig sa doktrina na aming sinasampalatayan. Sana rin, basahin mong maiigi ang blog at mga comments para hindi ka po nagkakamali, sa palagay ko kayo po ang nanghuhusga ng kapwa hindi ang mga commenters dito.

  28. such a pity that millions of people are mislead by Roman Catholic!
    a religion which doctrines are diametrically opposed to the biblical teachings!
    " ' vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’
    You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” (Mark 7:7-8 ESV)

    thank God for the men He used to open our eyes!
    To God be the glory!

  29. Poor people who have died believing with the catholic teachings on purgatory, limbo and so many other things of faith that cannot be found in the Bible.

  30. Im always amaze how Bro. Eli explain things of the bible. Wow !!
    Even the Jews that claim they knew the scriptures about the coming of the Mesiah but in reality have ignorance of the scriptures did not really know for sure who really is the Christ but as for Bro. Eli, he carefully even prove the Three (3) distinct places where he will be coming from.
    1. Bethlehem of Judea, 2 Egypt, and 3. Nazareth
    By using the Bible and not by words of mouth only or dictionaries.
    Truly God-sent so we can learn & understand the scriptures.

  31. The biblical truth of antiquity; hidden to the unbelievers but shiny and bright to the Christians. More power to you, Brother Eli. Thanks be to God and to His Son Jesus Christ.

  32. Ang kayabanagan ay ang pagtuturo ng ibang aral na hindi nakasulat sa biblia 1 Timoteo 6:3-4, Lumalabas kasi na mas magaling pa tayo sa kaniya.....

  33. wow. just wow! I have not understood the book of daniel like this!

  34. catholic church is demonic, They pray to the virgin mary and saints, that is idolatry at itis finest. They confess thier sins to a priest, a human being as opposed to the creator God, calling on God as the mediator, that purgatory crap is straight nonsense.

  35. The Romans crucified The Christ. How could they, who crucified him build the Roman catholic church to worship him? That is not a sound logic. Insanely, why would I teach you to believe in something I didn't believe at, in the first place?

  36. Salamat sa Dios at patuloy nyang binibigyan ng kaalaman upang magising na ang mga tao,lalong lalo na sa mga makakabasa ng blog na ito. To God be the Glory.

  37. Trully Bro Eli Soriano is God-sent, no mistake about it! :)

  38. It is impossible to that the Catholic Church is built by Christ because, the Catholic Church have lots of false beliefs & lies saying Mary is the mother of God , Peter as the rock or foundation of the Church & etc. It must be understood that the builder of the Church is the Father and not the Son! The main reason is that Christ is part of the Church being its foundation not Peter.The Catholic Church was again telling a lie saying, they are built by Christ & Peter is the foundation.

  39. Catholic Church is not built by Christ. Their church is built with lies, folklores and myths.

  40. Thanks be to God. Di n ko ignorance for believing the teaching of RCC!!!Glory to God

  41. hindi po naninira si bro.eli sa katoliko... ang ginagawa po nya ay ipakita sa tao ang Aral na mali at labag sa biblia. ay tawag po doon, PAGMAMAHAL, ...PAGMAMALASAKIT . ang Totoo... madalas masakit, pero isipin nyo kung walang bro.eli Soriano... dati rin ako RCC, salamat sa Dios at may bro.eli Soriano, sa Dios ang lahat ng Kapurihan ..!

  42. Before I am a Catholic follower, when I know that most of the doctrine of the catholic church is against the Holy Bible I changed my religion. Now I am proud to be a member of the Church of God International. Amen.

  43. catholic church pretending to be holy by praying rosary,kneeling before images of the what they proclaimed saints who are now in heaven as what they believe. They pretend to be one and united, but is obviously divided because of the greed of power and honor. There membership multiplied by millions not because of God's way,,but of there way by baptizing infant. They can't be the real church.

  44. It is very impossible because all the doctrines of Catholics are all against the doctrines that Christ and all apostles taught us.

  45. Thank God that there is a man who knows the bible and uses it to correct the fallacies of this religion

  46. Thank God that there is a man who knows the bible and uses it to correct the fallacies of this religion

    1. How do you know what he is saying is true?

  47. Boasts of the Roman Church about Sunday

    The Catholic Church claims responsibility for the change from seventh-day to first- day Sabbath. Here is an explanation from The Catechism of the Catholic Church Section 2 Article 3 (1994):

    Sunday – fulfillment of the Sabbath. Sunday is expressly distinguished from the Sabbath which it follows chronologically every week; for Christians its ceremonial observance replaces that of the Sabbath... The Sabbath, which represented the completion of the first creation, has been replaced by Sunday which recalls the new creation, has been replaced by Sunday which recalls the new creation inaugurated by the Resurrection of Christ... In respecting religious liberty and the common good of all, Christians should seek recognition of Sundays and the Church’s holy days as legal holidays.

    And here are various Catholic sources claiming the change was the doing of the Roman Catholic Church:

    Cardinal James Gibbons, The Faith of Our Fathers (Ayers Publishing, 1978): 108:
    But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify.

    The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine (1957): 50:
    Q. Which is the Sabbath day? A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
    Q. Why Do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday? A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

  48. Sunday actually made very little headway as a Christian day of rest until the time of Constantine in the fourth century. Constantine was emperor of Rome from AD 306 to 337. He was a sun worshiper during the first years of his reign. Later, he professed conversion to Christianity, but at heart remained a devotee of the sun. Edward Gibbon says, “The Sun was universally celebrated as the invincible guide and protector of Constantine.”i

    Constantine created the earliest Sunday law known to history in AD 321. It says this:
    On the venerable Day of the sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. In the country, however, persons engaged in agriculture may freely and lawfully continue their pursuits: because it often happens that another Day is not so suitable for grain sowing or for vine planting: lest by neglecting the proper moment for such operations the bounty of heaven should be lost.ii

    Chamber’s Encyclopedia says this:
    Unquestionably the first law, either ecclesiastical or civil, by which the Sabbatical observance of that Day is known to have been ordained, is the edict of Constantine, 321 A.D.iii

  49. To all Catholic friends out there, have a patience to read this blog. It is indeed an eye opener.

  50. From its ancient roots to the present world, the roman catholic church remains disconnected from the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and continues to wander astray from the Bible.

  51. Mr. Eli,tanong lng po. Sabi mo kasi si God that Father ang nagsalita nung sinabi ni Jesus na "though art Peter and onthis rock..." Ang tanong ko ngayon po ai eto. Pano mo nalaman na at that point or verse si God the father ang nagsalita? How about yung mga verses na Jesus ang nagsalita. Sya ba talaga ang magsalita o si God the father? Pano mo nalalaman na si Jesus ang nagsalita o Si God the father? Naka indicate ba sa bible kung sino nagsasalita at that point of the conversation?

  52. this blog is filled with heresies. Eli Soriano's invented opinions. Dont fall for the trap. Jesus said "I will build my church". " The gates of hell shall not prevail against it". Do you beoieve Eli Soriano's twisted interpretation? Or Jesus when He said " I will build my church"?

  53. Why should I believe the fallible biblical interpretation of this guy?
