I Am Not Competing with Anybody

Bro Eli preaches the truth

There are those that preach Christ out of envy and contention.

15 Some indeed even preach Christ because of envy and strife, and some also of good will.
16 Those, indeed, preach Christ out of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds.
17 But these others preach in love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel.

If there is both an intent and will to preach, they must come from God.

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good purpose.

To preach the Godly way is to preach and speak in a manner that God wants a preacher to speak.

3 For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile: 
4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 
For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of covetousness; God is witness:
6 Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. Chances are, in preaching the truth, a preacher sent by God may unwittingly make enemies.

Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

But whatever the consequences may be, a faithful preacher will preach the truth and nothing but the truth.

THE ACTS 20:24
But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Frankness and boldness are qualities unappreciated by many in a true preacher!

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

Since my childhood, I have tried my best to please as much people as possible. I was loved as a son, as a brother, as a classmate, as a friend, and as a student to my mentors. But when I started preaching the Gospel, I was hated, humiliated, charged maliciously, beaten physically and maligned by almost all sectors of human society, save those who believe in God and in the Gospel that I preach.

Once, I was hospitalized for almost a week after a debate wherein I took the stand that Jesus Christ is God. Here is a doctor’s certificate:

10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Experiencing such extraordinary treatment from those who are enemies of the Gospel is not very easy to bear, but I delight in recalling the word of the Lord Jesus Christ that says:

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.


I am not competing with anybody when I say that Peter is not the rock but the Lord Jesus Christ.


  1. Thanks be to God for using you Bro Eli and Kuya to spread the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. To God be the Glory! 🙂 💝

    - Amen!

  3. Thanks for sharing this Mr. Controversy! dont mind those people who dont want accept what is right in terms of preaching the true gospel. May God continue to use u as an instrument for all the people.

  4. On a personal note, God's instrument for salvation is incomparable to any of the self-appointed preachers in all manners so therefore I agree that Bro. Eli never competes with anybody. What for? His faith, fate, teachings and the kind of congregation he is leading is one of a kind. Purely biblical. His existence is part of God’s plan for salvation for these last days. Thanks be to God.

  5. But whatever the consequences may be, a faithful preacher will preach the truth and nothing but the truth.

  6. Amen. Thanks be to GOD for this article.

  7. God prepared us to expect remorse and reproach from perverted beliefs done by other churches but as He always say that we are not alone in this fight. He is indeed with us. Thanks be to God for all of these.

  8. We love you Bro Eli and Bro Daniel. I cried after reading this blog. God bless you. 💝

  9. God's Word is so powerful to change a man's life.

  10. Frankness, boldness, honesty, logical reasoning, scientific, and truthfulness, are among the qualities of a true preacher. Brother Eli Soriano possesses those qualities because he is a true preacher and he preaches the Gospel of God faithfully. He preaches the truth and nothing but the truth as written in the Holy Bible unmindful of whatever the consequences as the case maybe resulting from his telling the truth about the true Gospel of God. Thanks be to God!

  11. Truth hurts. That's why ungodly people do not like to hear the truth 'coz these people are the exact opposite of what Mr. Controversy Extraordinary is preaching.

    Indeed, because of Bro. Eli's telling the truth it almost cost him his life. This is a fulfillment of what Jesus hath said in Mat. 5:11

  12. You're right Bro.Eli your not competing with anybody and no one can ever compete a person like you,cause your teaching came from GOD. Thanks a lot to all the useful information that can save my soul.TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

  13. Thanks be to God for a very sensible blog.

  14. To God be the Glory forever!!! God bless you more Bro. Eli (:

  15. lagi rin akong nagsasanay upang magkaroon ng isang budhing walang kapaslangan sa Dios at sa mga tao.Acts 24:16 #BroEliPreachesToPleaseGOD

  16. o pit against a bearer of divine wisdom is a sheer exercise in futility. Certainly, Bro. Eli cannot compete with anybody as nobody is fit to do it, not even the leaders of the most influential religion and renowned atheists nowadays.

  17. Thanks be to God for letting me know Bro Eli, a faithful preacher that preach the truth and nothing but the truth. No matter what the other people says about him, mockeries or doubts, I don't care about that, because I know deep within my heart that this preacher teach me to know the true meaning of life and how to love purely. Thanks be to God and I wish this blog could reach more people.

  18. True Preacher Sent By God Has A Clean Conscience and Only Seek to Preach The Undefiled Word Of God and Doesn't allow People Who Want to Twist The Word Of God To Succeed...And That is In The Person Of Bro. Eli Soriano and Kuya Daniel Razon!

  19. Tnx for the enlightenment that are base in the words of God.....to God be the glory!

  20. Definitely not this race that everyone is familiar with! Brother. Eli is involved with another race. A more excellent one that anyone will like to get , a crown of righteousness!, that God will give in the end. We are behind your effort. May God also consider ours. This is my prayer.

  21. Upon reading the blog of brother Eli, i felt that i was riding on a time machine, as if i feel the humiliations implicated to brother eli when he started to preach the words of God then my tears started to fall. We are lucky brethren beacause brother eli never gave up and up to this very moment still teaching us the knowledge written on the bible which no other religious pastors could do.Thanks be to God im lucky enough to hear the preachings of brother eli.Wala man akong maitutulong financially sana ang aming panalangin magkakapatid para s iyong kalusugan ay ipagkaloob ng ating Panginoon Ama.Salamat sa Dios.

  22. Gracias a Dios por tener un predicador que siempre habla la verdad, con franqueza y audacia.y más importante agradar primeramente a Dios que al hombre. La amistad con el mundo es enemistad con Dios.

  23. ...Jesus Christ advocated the truth showing us, false Jesus Christ is(are) around misleading people and even competing with each other...

  24. Thanks Be To God For all The Teachings in the Holy Gospel of Christ To God Be The Glory

  25. Competition is a word used by people to justify their ignorance of the truth..."the truth has no room for competition".

  26. Si Bro. Eli Ang Nag Iisang Tapat Na Mangangaral Ngayong Panahon Ngayon! Wala Ka Nang Makikitang Gaya Nya Kahit Maghanap Ka Pa Sa Lahat Ng Relihiyon!! Hindi Sya Nangangaral Para Manira Ng Kapwa Kundi Sa Budhing Malinis Ay Pagsasabi Ng Totoo!

  27. Brod Ely is not competing with anybody, he is just voicing out the ignorance and lies behind the truth. He will feel guilty if his quiet and let these preachers misleads the People. Soul is precious, must be taking care of.

  28. This world is full of competition and people have learned to accept defeat only to look for another strategy to defeat other people but look at Bro. Eli, no one competes with him. Why? He is holding the truth. Need I say more?

  29. Competition bounded with legal obligation in true commerce is healthy but competition even bounded with legal obligation in true religion is unhealthy.

  30. This satan is clever promoting competition to confuse people and even uses the bible which is suppose to be the basis of truth is distorting the word of God by this satan to really confuse people.
