The RCC Merchandising Salvation: Cult or Not Cult?

6/06/2015 155 Comments


What is cult? The Oxford dictionary refers to it as: 1) A system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object; 2) A relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister; and 3) A misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing. 

The first point is on directing one’s worship to one that is not God; the second one is focused on its small quantity, and the third is about undeserved worship. 

The Catholic Church clearly satisfies Points 1 and 3, but not Point 2 because of their large number. As we have earlier pointed out, the Catholic Church has many false doctrines; and secondly, true and direct prayer to God is being hijacked by their Rosary tradition of prayer. But we are going ahead of the story. 

The question is, does number indicate whether one’s belief is true or false? The point is that calling one’s group a cult is an easy way out to denigrate another’s group without the benefit of an argued assessment. Hence, whether one is cult or not is not a safe measure at arriving at truth. The best is still to measure one’s beliefs against biblical truth or the word of God. 

But let us disabuse the mind of this Catholic priest who keeps calling the Members Church of God International (MCGI) as cult for the meantime. This was his answer to the many discussions I had, pointing out that the Catholic Church is fake as it is faking Christ and its followers too low. 

I pointed out earlier that the Catholic Church is already a fake church, but it does not mind doing the faking good. To explain, I gave the example of those who might fake Nike products so would try their very best to imitate the product from design, material, flexibility, support to the body, stitching, and sound or looks when used. They would try their very best to approximate the real thing. But this priest was not answering the points I raised. He mainly called the MCGI cult. He even gave his own definition – and later, you will see how he amounts to, because we will be applying his definition against his own church, the RCC. 

Originally and etymologically, the word (cult) has nothing evil to imply, but our present day’s fundamentalists and surprisingly even the Catholic Church, existing beyond the fundamentals of the gospel, are using the word to denote something evil. Steve Shott (@FrShott), whom I want to call a lying priest, implied something evil using the same to describe MCGI.


CULT 
[Early 17th century. Directly or via French (Latin cultus “worship” < colere “cultivate” ] 
Source: Encarta Dictionary

In the beginning, it only pointed to worship. If I, as a writer, were to leave behind for the mean time the etymological meaning of the word “cult” was at work and apply the definition used by this priest, it would not work. 

To give him the benefit of the doubt, he describes the word as “denial of even one central doctrine.” These exchanges can be found in Twitter. Here’s Steve Shott tweeting his own definitions - 


Delving into the preferred meaning of this priest, let us consider our analysis from the Bible. 

The central doctrine of the gospel of Christianity and of Christ is definitely one that is to make known the grandeur of the Father of the Lord!

JOHN 7:17-18 
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 
18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

Nothing else can do. What is clearly to be spoken of is the central doctrine of the gospel of Christianity and of Christ, making known the grandeur of the Father of the Lord! Therefore, if you are a preacher, that is what you must do. You must preach Christ and what He has passed down from the Father. If you are a Church, your doctrines must be of Christ – not of Mary, not of the saints who are also human beings.

MATTHEW 11:27 
All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Since the time of the existence of the first man and woman who inhabited this earth, the Father was unknown to everybody until the time of the preaching of the Lord Jesus Christ whose central intention is to make known the Father Almighty, the Supreme Being, and Creator of the universe and all those things that exist beyond it.

JOHN 1:18 
No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. He made known His being.

JOHN 4:23-24 
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Christ revealed God’s name and told Christians to worship it – and nothing else.

JOHN 17:6, 26 
6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 
26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

MATTHEW 6:9 
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

One sent, like the Lord Jesus Christ, doesn’t seek His own glory. So if you were sent, you should not seek your own glory. You do not perpetuate the practice of people who try to embed their names to be glorified.

JOHN 7:17-18 
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 
18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

Christ wants the glory of the Father to be known unto all creatures.

JOHN 14:28 
Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

JOHN 10:29 
My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

To conclude, the central doctrine of the gospel of Christ and of the entire Bible is built on making man realize the greatness of the Creator.

PSALMS 100:3-5 
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

If a cult is a group or a church that deviates or denies the central doctrine of the gospel (accommodating Steve Shott's definition), then by analysis we will find out which truly is a “cult” among the main religious groups that exist nowadays. 

Claiming primacy since time immemorial is the Catholic Church. Let us put them in our bathtub of hot water first. Does the Catholic Church adhere to the central doctrine of the gospel in acknowledging God as the most powerful Supreme Being that exists? 

The answer is a very big NO! The RCC has placed the Father in equal category with the Son and the Holy Spirit against the central doctrine of the BIBLE. 

Here are excerpts in English - 

The following verses speak of Christ submitting the Kingdom to God at the end. How can Christ now be greater than the Father? The Holy Spirit is sent, so the sender should be greater than the sent one. How can they be equal then? Elementary! But the RCC cannot see that truth.

1 CORINTHIANS 15:24-28 
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

JOHN 13:16 
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

They even call Mary “God almighty” and what a fantastic lie! This Tagalog Catholic prayer translates Mary into God Almighty. 

Translated in English, this is the prayer to Mary: “Have mercy, my Mother, to us to desire to worship you, honor and glorify you with total love above all, because you are God that is merciful and powerful of all. Bestow unto us, O, my God, your protection and blessings of heart and soul in life and death until forever. Amen.” 

Take note that there are two authorities mentioned here, allowing for printing and publication. Take note also of the extreme similarities with extollation of Mary as found in “The True Devotion to Mary” by Saint Louis de Montfort. (We have earlier mentioned this book in relation to rosary). 

The tradition of calling Mary as Mother of God is explained as follows: Two hundred Catholic Priests met at Ephesus at their Frist Council in 431 AD and decided upon calling Mary the Mother of God. Their reason is on account of her son, Jesus who is both God and man, divine and human. (Ref: “The Canons of the Two Hundred Holy and Blessed Fathers Who Met at Ephesus.” ChristianClassicsEtherealLibrary.Org June 1, 2005). See? Only their predecessors said so – not God. 

They didn’t only demote the Father to the rank of the Son, even worse to the rank of Mary, who confessed in the Bible to be a humble servant of the Lord.

LUKE 1:38 (Bible in Basic English) 
And Mary said: I am the servant of the Lord; may it be to me as you say. And the angel went away.

They placed the Father in a situation not found in the gospel in their doctrine that the Holy Spirit is the husband of Mary. 

Here’s an excerpted English version of a Catholic teaching that Mary is the spouse of the Holy Ghost. This was taken from “Introduction “ in the book, “True Devotion to Mary” by Saint Louis de Montfort. The site says the book was translated from the original French by Reverend Frederick William Faber, D.D. The book was originally published in 1863. The book was commended by 8 popes and the Vatican Council (1962–1965). (http://www.ecatholic2000.com/montfort/true/devotion.shtml) 


The Father must be the central figure of worship. Substituting Him for anyone without His permission is a lie that is satanic.

ROMANS 1:25 
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

John 8.44 
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

The RCC worships angels utterly prohibited in the Bible. Angels themselves give this prohibition. Angels of God did not want to be worshipped! If you place honor to angels as if they could do something that God can do, isn’t that a form of idolatry?

REVELATIONS 22:9 
Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

What is worse is to teach that saints, their persons, their image, and their relics must be worshipped also. Here’s part of their Catechism - 


Another truth is that the Father offers salvation without money – and that is at the central doctrine of the Bible.


REVELATIONS 3:17-18 
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: 
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

ISAIAH 55:1 
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

But here comes the Catholic Church that collects money at every turn. The RCC does the opposite of what the Father does. In fact, with the RCC, even forgiveness of sin can be bought by the doctrine of indulgence.

MATTHEW 10:8 
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

2 CORINTHIANS 11:7 
Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

In the cities, even in malls today, you can see people selling Mass Cards. That is because with the Catholic Church, everything is being sold. Salvation is not free. Below are receipts showing that among their rites, baptism is being paid in the Catholic parishes. And yet Baptism to them is with babies – people who have no need of repentance and who do not understand what he or she is undergoing.

PROVERBS 23:23 
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

The RCC is full of general merchandise.

REVELATIONS 18:12-13 
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, 
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.

Those that sell doctrines must not only be called “cult” but are charged by the Bible as “false prophets” and “false teachers.”

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: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

The idea of praying, kneeling down to and worshiping graven images is just one of the most abominable doctrines of the RCC.

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

1 PETER 4:3 
For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

PSALMS 115:4-8 
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not: 
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: 
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat. 
8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

DEUTERONOMY 5:7-9 
7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me. 
8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 
9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

Just consider these few amid the surplus of invented doctrines of the RCC, with the evidences presented. So which really is a “cult,” the MCGI or the RCC? 

Truly yours, 

Brother Eli Soriano

  1. RCC is a cult! Worshipping not only the one that is not the real god, but they worship many others they consider to be worshipped like saints, their persons, their image, and their relics. Where did they base their belief? Definitely not in the Bible! Because as it is written in Deut. 5:7-9 ...you shouldn't have any other gods... RCC is definitely a cult! Not MCGI wherein our belief is based on the Bible I Cor. 4:6. I thank God that He sent us Bro. Eli Soriano, that teaches us to believe and worship the True God of The Bible, and that our belief is not in vain. Thanks be to God.

  5. Shott's definition of cult directly contradicts his claim that MCGI is a cult. His RCC is a good example of a CULT. Teaching their followers to worship God in a manner which is in direct contrast of what is written in the Holy Scriptures.Thanks be to God for using Bro Eli Soriano to clarify this matter of faith for the benefit not only of MCGI members but also of those who is under the deceit of false preachers like Shott.

  6. Bad Shott uses cult as a derogatory remark against Members: Church of God International. But his bad cult meaning actually fits the roman catholic church! This priest is funny. Pathetically funny.
    See how The Truth Caster lays down Biblical evidences and documents that solidifies every statement he makes. While the priest runs on invented accusations. But it is all coming back to him. No score! Bad Shott!

  10. Catholics definition of cult reflects them. No Christian recorded in the Bible kneels down before saints,apostles,Mary mother of Jesus and even angels (Acts 10:25-26 and Rev 22:8-9) in this verses "Kneeling down means Worshiping" unlike their arguments that they were just giving respect to their saint statues and images which is not a Christian doctrine (Act 17:29, Romans 1:21-25)

  18. @ Mr.Steve Shott, (I prefer Mr.Steve than Fr.Steve because your not my father and it will be my fault if I call you Father) with the definition supplied by Mr.Controversy according to Oxford dictionary, it is more fit to refer RCC as Roman Catholic Cult instead of Church. But if we will based in reality it is more fit to refer as Roman Carnal Church. We hope that more Catholic fanatics be enlighten with bible facts exposed by Mr.Controversy.

  27. If people will only pay attention to what Mr. Controversy is trying to show us, they will (with GOD's Help and Guidance) understand the intention of his blog. It is not to malign other people's beliefs but to bring us to a level of thinking that if we are that meticulous when it comes to other things, like buying something, choosing a partner etc.more so we need to apply this meticulous appetite to choosing what kind of religion are we going to join, do we fully know the doctrine that we are going to accept? Does it has a firm basis? Like what we have now in our time, we see many religion "allegedly" preaching the Bible...like the RCC. With this new topic in Mr. Controversy's Blog, it clearly shows how the doctrine of the RCC is utterly different to the teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  44. But as for me those black robes, graven images, idols, huge statues, crucifixes, relics, chants, castings spells and banging bells is an actual-new generation-of paganism. To add insult; I can even imagine the sound tracked of the movie ''Dances with Wolves'' which most likely compliments the entire rituals of this archaic hymn "omnibus luviscum sicular siculorum" With the cup full of blooded colored wine. Well, "Dances with Wolves in Robes'' fits them.

  63. I hope Mr.(Fr.)Shotts can visit or observe our Thanksgiving in any one of our coordinating centers all over the world to see for himself the kind of people that we are, with no hatred in our hearts even to those who ridicule us. May God enlighten his heart and give him wisdom and accompany him to realize the TRUTH.

  67. indi ba ito ang tinutumbok ni Dr. Jose Rizal - ang relihiyong ginagawang gatasan ang kaniyang mga miyembro sa pamamgitan ng mga sari-saring bagay na magliligtas daw sa makasalanang kaluluwa, na wala naman sa Bibliya. mAbuksan nawa ang mga mata ang ating mga kababayan na patuloy na inaalipin ng relihiyong mapagsamantala, ang Katolisismo.

    Bagamat tayo ay nagkaroon ng kalayaan sa tulong ng ating mga bayani, ngunit hanggan sa ngayon ay alipin tayo ng relihiyong ang turo ay mula sa tao at hindi sa Dios. Mag-isip nga tayong mabuti, magnilay.


    “Ikapito. Pagnilayan ninyong maigi kung ano ang relihiyong itinuturo sa atin. Tingnan ninyong mabuti kung iyan ba talaga ang utos ng Diyos o ang pangaral ni Kristong panlunas sa hirap ng mahirap, pang-aliw sa dusa ng nagdurusa. Alalahanin ninyo ang lahat ng itinuturo sa inyo, ang pinatutunguhan ng lahat ng sermon, ang nasa kaibuturan ng lahat ng misa, nobena, kuwintas, eskapularyo, larawan, milagro, kandila, sinturon, at iba’t iba pang iginigiit, inihihiyaw at idinidiin araw-araw sa inyong loob, tainga, mata. Hanapin ninyo ang puno’t dulo at ihambing ninyo ang relihiyon sa malinis na relihiyon ni Kristo. At tingnan kung ang inyong pagka-Kristiyano ay kapareho ng inaalagaang gatasang hayop o kaya ng pinatatabang baboy, na pinatataba hindi dahil sa pagmamahal sa kaniya, kundi upang maipagbili nang mas mahal at nang lalong pagkakitaan.”

  86. (1 Timothy 6:10) For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

    RCC can have all the money and control the world but in
    Matthew 16:26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?

    So everyone please beware not just catholic, investigate, analyze about what really is in the doctrines of your religion, if its not written in the bible and if u are being fooled to pay for these and those that is not written in the bible either then you are in the wrong religion. Investigate for your soul and for your salvation.

    Thanks be to God in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  91. The RCC has the most perverted doctrines . Namely: 1. Idolatry 2. Purgatory 3.Limbo
    4. Rosary 5. Trinity ..among many other things. Their priest are addressed as FATHER which defies the teachings of the bible and they refer to their POPE as the MOST HOLY FATHER which is far superlative in rank with GOD. The members of the RCC practices witchcraft, fortune telling and rituals like exorcism and so on. Dating the birth of Jesus on a December 25 was one of their outrageous deception. Halloween , valentines day, christmas and fiestas are some of their most celebrated occasions. Aside from selling graven images in forms of wood, gold, silver, jade, metal, plastic and paint... the RCC also invest on marriages (even of the same sex), baptism, prayer request and deaths. The RCC should be the TOP and number one in FORTUNES TOP CORPORATION...not Walmart. A church who claims to have the plentiest members and the right doctrine. Ironically, the Romans crucified our Lord Jesus Christ and here they are claiming to be the true church.

    A fame thirst priest from North Carolina USA by the name of Steve Shott bullies Bro.Eli Soriano as if he knows the facts. A shame to the already shameful church on the face of the earth. A non-prominent priest who wants to make name by interjecting himself through lies and hypocritical remarks. A No-No who wants to be recognized in any way possible to ride with Bro.Eli's popularity.

    Steve, you ought to read this blog . That way, it would shed some senses to your insensible and pathetic beliefs.

  92. Kung sila na nasa maling pananampalataya ay matapang na ipinaglalaban ang kanilang iglesia at doktrina...... hindi ba lalo na tayong nasa TOTOO ay dapat maging mas masigla at matiyagang ipagbunyi ang katwrirang naituro sa atin ng ating mga mangangaral sa sinugong tunay sa ating panahon para sa ikaliligtas ng marami?
    KULTO kung tayo ay paratangan ng imPASTOR at PARI sa ngalang STEVE SHOTT na umaangkas sa popularidad ng ating punong tagapangasiwa sa si Kapatid na Eli Soriano. Halina po at makibahagi sa labang ito. Ipaglaban po natin ang katotohanan ng hindi tuluyang yurakan ang mabuting samahan na ito .

    Ang RCC ang pinakamayamang korporasyon at kumpanya sa buong mundo na sa maling pangangalakal sa mga salita ng DIOS ay ginamit ang maling doktrina na panghikayat at pangliligaw sa maraming kaluluwa. Ituloy po natin ang laban at ipagwagi ang katwiran ng hindi makapagpatuloy sa panliligaw ng marami ang RCC . Nakatakdang gumuho ang Babilonya . Ipaglaban ang tunay na iglesia.

  93. How could a religion make its followers buy their individual salvation? Have Catholics ever asked this in their minds? I doubt it. I was once a Catholic and as a little girl, I've always wondered, always asked my granny, my mom and myself why must we pay for the mass, for the the rosaries, for the little booklets of novena, and a whole lot more. Those masses, those sermons, those processions, those people who use their hankies to wipe the idols (statues of angels included) as if cleaning them, those communions, those gigantic crucifix (not to mention those nazarenos) which I've always tried to avoid, those confessions to their parish priests which I've always tried to run away from (sorry grandma I just honestly felt that way), everything felt insanely UNCOMFORTABLE and back then I've never known the answer. But now, I've finally found the TRUTH, the real answers to the LIES of the Catholic church. All those traditions of the RCC aren't and must I say, shall never be in the Bible. Well folks, these are hard truths that we must accept. And with all of these being presented to us by Mr. Controversy X, RCC is the CULTprit. I hope Catholics would just open up their hearts, just read on and think. But before that, pray and ask for God's guidance to guide your heart and your mind. ^____^ To GOD be the glory!

  95. I agree. Aren't most of us catholic once? It's not like we are making up stories, fables and fairy tales. I was a very religious catholic boy who studied at a private catholic school from elementary and highschool. Have had yearly retreats and regular weekly mass , not including novenas and the 9 day evening mass from Dec16 to 25 every year. Possessions and Fiestas as often as every month. I was even one of the 8 seminary exam passers of the 800 who took the test at Genazeret immaculate conception seminary or ICS in Guiguinto Bulacan in 1982 and was sponsored by the late priest Reggie Asuncion of Malolos Bulacan Barasoin Diocese, a secular group. In my early days, I was being sponsored by the Sto.Domingo sponsored by the celebrated priest Sonny Ramirez to join the seminary under the dominican order. Is this something I brag about? Not anymore. It's something I would have regret. What's the pertinence of mentioning it is to establish the fact that I once wanted to be like Steve Shott, minus the masters degree in European theology. Because the wisdom Bro.Eli Soriano teaches us will always be a mystery to many priest . Even to the Pope.
    I must say the the most gratifying religion when it comes to the flesh is in the RCC. Now who is the real cult? Isn't it the one that has too many rituals like the RCC?

  96. the RCC acknowledged the central doctrines of Christ but pursuing a more dominating way of belief that Mary a mediatrix - a woman who is a mediator
    go-between, intercessor, intermediary, intermediator, mediator - a negotiator who acts as a link between parties is some what called an occultic practise and an unbiblical doctrines of RCC...

  98. The Catholic Doctrines were "enforced" by the Spanish Forces during their Philippine occupation for more than 300 years. Filipino people were made to believed and obey their doctrines otherwise, they will have to face the consequences.

    Dr. Jose Rizal was executed not because of being a part of the Philippine Revolution but simply because he rejected the Catholic Doctrines. Dr. Jose Rizal read the entire Bible during his time.

    If only the leaders of the Catholic Church will read the Bible, they may also understand what Dr. Jose Rizal understood about the Doctrines of Christ.

    Thanks be to God for having someone like Bro. Eli who continuously exerting his effort in propagating the true and spiritual Doctrines of the Lord.

  112. This Blog will open the eyes of catholics who have been deceived by popes, priests, and their dogmas. The Bible should always be the foundation of our belief. If catholics believe in God, then they should believe in the Bible. For God's words and his loving kindess and His intentions to share His kingdom is written in the holy scriptures. Its a pity that this priest shott keeps a deaf ear and a blind eye and being proud of his ignorance to the holy scriptures. Shame on this priest who allows his followers to call him "reverend". The word is not fit for people like him. Thank God to this blog for providing us with tools that we need to understand the truth in the Bible. To God be the Glory

  117. To Priest Steve Shott, please read this blog of Bro. Eli & may God enlighten your mind. MCGI is not a cult for we follow the doctrines of God exactly as it was written in the bible & we practiced them. If you want to really serve God,You must preach Christ and His teachings. The doctrines you should teach your followers must be the doctrines of Christ – not of Mary, not of the saints who are also human beings.

  118. to priest Steve Shott, us Members of Church of God International doesn't have to please all of you to read the blogs of #TheTruthCaster bro. Eli Soriano because of I know you're always making time to read these blogs. All I know is I hope that you can accept that the doctrines of your church are all wrong and might change your beliefs to go for the truth. if you can't, sorry not sorry, you're not an infant anymore. It's too painful to be there.

  120. Steve Shott is claiming that MCGI is a cult as he would be define as “denial of even one central doctrine.” I'm afraid he's not reading the whole context of the real definition of a cult; the scholars knows it even from the root word which is to "worship". But they could never deny the fact that they worship "Mary" as God the redeemer of sin. In order to be clear in this issue which is which worship truly to God the RCC or the MCGI?

  122. I was once a catholic,thanks be to God for his highest calling and now realizing every teachings of RCC are false thru bro eli soriano.

    In Deut.5-8,9 .

    Deut 5-8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image,or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above,or that is in the earth beneath the earth

    Deut 5-9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them,nor serve them:for I the Lord thy GOD am a Jealous GOD , visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

    This verses proves that catholic are only using the Bibles as a front.
