Of Boring Sermons and Religious Rights

Respecting other people's faith

Bro. Eli, 

How dare you to tell us that your church is the real church. You don’t have any rights at all because I was there when you deliver your talks last week and it didn’t convince me at all. You are interpreting your bible in a shallow or literal meaning. All your talks are scripted and I hate to tell this but I find your talks so boring, irritating and nauseating. Sorry about that but i think you need to know this coz you are trying hard and you cannot fool people especially those educated ones and with great faith in our catholic church. Our church is not discriminatory or trying to step foot on others faith. Focus on your own followers. Respect other religion coz we are not a fool to digest all your shallow explanations. 

Lillian Fernando

Dear Madame Fernando,

I am very sorry to hear from you that I have no right to say that the Church of God is the true Church. For your information, Madame, it is not only the right of a person to think or to believe he is right, but it is of the highest level of sanity. Because, if you believe that you are wrong and you still have the guts to say that you are right that is the highest level of insanity — as far as my opinion is concerned.

I CORINTHIANS 10:23
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

But of course, it is a basic human right — you are entitled to your own opinion; but don’t forget mine.

MATTHEW 7:12
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

The Catholic Church spearheaded the notion and claim that it is the only one true church in the world, and there is no salvation outside of it.


Others followed suit.


(This was taken from Iglesia ni Cristo’s (Church of Christ by Felix Manalo) official magazine called “Pasugo” (God’s Message)


(Jose Luis Miranda, leader of the group “Growing in Grace”)

The true Church in the Bible never claimed that it is the true church because it does not have any feeling of guilt or insecurity. In fact, with the help of your computer, you can easily type the phrase “true church”, and instantaneously find out that there is no such term in the Bible. If I say that the Church of God is the true church because I believe in the Bible, it is my religious right; and I am not saying — and never will I — that my church is the true church (as you have accused me of), because I do not have any church of my own; only preaching the Church written in the Bible.

If you open your Bible (particularly the official Bible of the Roman Catholic Church), the church in the Bible is the Church of God.

DOUAY-RHEIMS VERSION
THE ACTS 20:28
Take heed to yourselves and to the whole flock, wherein the Holy Ghost hath placed you bishops, to rule the Church of God which he hath purchased with his own blood.

And because it is the church which is written in the Bible, don’t I have the right to believe that it is the true church?

The official name of your church, “The Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church”, is not written in the Bible. It only acquired its official name in the Vatican Council of 1870. So, it is understandable that it is not the ‘true’ church in the Bible. (See reference below)


Imagine, a church that claims that it is the original, having its official name only after eighteen hundred long years!

You said “that you were bored listening to me”. I respect your right; but you see, when I also listen to sermons of priests, I am more than bored because they do not teach the Bible — but their own opinion. Want an example?


The Catholic Church, for centuries, taught its followers the existence of limbo. Millions have died believing in it; but now, your present pope declared that limbo does not exist, so, it is a mere opinion of the past popes, or its non-existence is also an opinion of the present.

Here is another opinion of your leaders, which is blatantly non-biblical.We came from apes? Biblically, we were created directly by God as humans.

GENESIS 2:7
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Your pope now said “that there is substantial scientific proof of the theory of evolution”, which declaration proves the ignorance of your leaders regarding the Bible.


(God’s gift … Pope Benedict has been given reason enough lately to believe in the theory of evolution / Reuters / Reuters)

Pope Benedict admits evidence for evolution
Herald Sun Australia / July 26, 2007
POPE Benedict has said there is substantial scientific proof of the theory of evolution.
http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,22136550-5002700,00.html

You said that, I am “trying hard, that I am fooling people”, which you did not substantiate with any evidence — biblical or outside of the Bible. For this I have to say that it is the opposite. I am not trying hard because it is very easy for me to prove that your practices in your church like, kneeling before idols, praying before idol of stones and woods are prohibited by God.

DOUAY-RHEIMS VERSION
DEUTERONOMY 5:7-9
7 Thou shalt not have strange gods in my sight.
8 Thou shalt not make to thy self a graven thing, nor the likeness of any things, that are in heaven above, or that are in the earth beneath, or that abide in the waters under the earth.
9 Thou shalt not adore them, and thou shalt not serve them. For I am the Lord thy God, a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon their children unto the third and fourth generation, to them that hate me,

KING JAMES VERSION
THE 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.

You said that “I am fooling people”, but I am not the one fooling people because I am reading to them the words of God in the Bible, but your priests do not — as often as I do!

You also said that, “our church is not discriminatory or trying to step foot on others faith.” To this, I say, as a brotherly advice to you, that you must do a little research. Your church does not only trample the rights of other faith, but executes or murders those who do not want to believe in her doctrines. To this, the late Pope John Paul II, I call as my witness.


The most disgusting of your comment is “Respect other religion coz we are not a fool to digest all your shallow explanations.” You should have said this to your leaders. I respect other’s faith, but I have to follow my God’s instruction to shout and tell people the truth.

ISAIAH 58:1
Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

I am sorry to hear from you that you “cannot digest my shallow explanations”. It is your right. But if my shallow explanations cannot be digested by you, the more your digestive system will be in trouble if you encounter the deeper things of God in the Bible.

I CORINTHIANS 2:10
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

It is the Spirit that reveals the truth of the word of God in the Bible in the heart of a man, not the explanation of anybody — including Brother Eli.

ACTS 16:14
And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul.

I pray to God that He may enlighten you.

God Bless You.

Brother Eli Soriano

  4. Just be open minded. If we use logic and sense in our day to day lives, much more must we use in Religion for our souls are much more important. Thanks be to God for this enlightening blog.

  5. The Roman Catholic as a religion cannot be the true religion because its teachings are not in conformity with the teachings of the Holy Bible. Its members are misled by the catholic priests because such members either don't read the bible or do not understand the bible because they are blinded by blind faith brought about by the invented teachings of men. Righteousness cannot be in a person possessed by evil spirit and if such person is possessed by evil spirit, there is no way for him or her to understand the bible correctly. Thanks be to God!

I CRIED AND THANK GOD THAT THERE IS SOMEONE WHO PREACHES THE TRUTH !!! BIBLBICAL UNLIKE CATHOLIC TEACHINGS WHICH IS CONTRARY TO THE TEACHINGS OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST .. ONE EXAMPLE IS IN MAT 23:9
    KING JAMES VERSION
    MATTHEW 23:9
    And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
    ..BUT SAD TO SAY THAT IN CATHOLIC CHURCH ..THE LEADER IS CALLED " POPE " LATIN WORD MEANING FATHER ..EVEN THE PRIEST ARE CALLED FATHER ..CONTRARY TO THE TEACHINGS OF CHRIST ..
    just one of the many doctrines of man by Catholics ..
    KING JAMES VERSION
    MARK 7:7
    Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

  14. Yup...she's blinded and possessed. I have been a devout catholic but when I've heard Bro. Eli Soriano's preach the "Church of God" in the Bible I never hesitated to follow this "path". But this woman accusing Bro. Eli of teaching shallow faith without even substantiating any evidence, she's a bigger blind and a fool, possessed by evil and an idolater who believes that her prayers will be answered by those graven images...may God open her mind

  24. As a former catholic, I know what its like to be deluded into believing that the catholic church is the repository of the deepest mysteries of the Christian faith. Catholics are so proud of the "wisdom" they get from their priests who spent so many years in the seminary learning theology and catholic dogma that came straight the Vatican that they fail to appreciate to truth clearly contained within the letters of the scriptures. Catholics, especially those who had the privilege of learning theology in catholic schools are numb to the fact that some catholic doctrines are clearly against the teachings in the bible. To assert their feeling superiority, they accuse those who rely on the scriptures as being shallow.
    Instead of using their God-given intellect to sort what is right from wrong, they cling to sentiment.

  25. That is the faith of the rich, the oligarchs, the intelligent of the world, the super rich, the one controlling economy of a country, you are all blinded by evil spirits. But i believe some day, these peole soon realize what they are doing is not in accordance with the bible. Madam Lillian may God bless you and your family.

  31. Madame Fernando kindly practice to be fair and just cause you my hurt other feelings,especially me.Because through Bro.Eli I learned about honesty and integrity that the truth matters without any shortcut.not like your belief your priest play by there own set rules. My GOD enlighten your heart.

  32. Seriously madam, you were conned by your priests... I'll bet even the vulgate will agree with bro Eli. Repent!

  33. To Mrs. Lillian Fernando: you are fortunate to have been given such a detailed and biblical response. No other preacher would invest this much time and effort in giving you the rightful answers and explanation, despite your very short and biased comment. This just goes to show that this preacher cares about his fellow men so much that he is willing to allot some of his precious time to hopefully enlighten you, with God's help and mercy. This is a great response and I, myself, am in awe of what I have learned reading this today.

  34. To madame Lillian i hope one day you will realize that your religion is not the right one because of the many traditions or rituals not biblical as mentioned by brother eli that catholics do, keep on attending bible expositions, from the internet or thru untv37. Its not easy to accept the teachings of the bible at first but sooner or later you will realizes that your faith now is contrary to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. May God bless you sister.

  40. I was also maade to believe that catholic church is the true church until I have known a preacher that opened my interrest and love for the word of God which the so called "educated" as ms. Lilian calls them hid for centuries. May God have mercy to these people. God's enemy uses the highest form of deceit and hides in the face of a false religion. Imgine "educated" people kneeling before graven images? Are they educated? But i am thankful theres someone that exposes foolishness in religions even to the extent of being maligned his person in public. I thank God for bro eli,I am not a catholic anymore. Million thanks to God.

  43. Hi Ms.Lillian Fernando, your mind, tongue and heart are still in the darkness, thus the reason you said those words to Bro. Eli. It is not yet your time to hear the voice of God, you are not yet chosen to be called no matter how you try to listen to Bro. Eli's speech. Suggest, that you pray for yourself so God will have mercy to save you from your wrong FAITH. If you are one of those educated person that you have mentioned, you have to be open minded,and research more.Because a true educated person is the one who loves wisdom and knowledge and is witty to learn more and truth seeker.

  52. Ms.Fernando is lacking of knowledge,she doesn't have the right to give a comment as she is ignorance about the Bible.No read no write about the Bible.Read the Bible even once Ms. Fernando.

  53. Ms Lillian Fernando.

    Have you ever seen anyone like this man, Brother Eli Soriano? Have you noticed how he addressed your statements, point by point? Can you not appreciate the knowledge ( Biblical Knowledge ) imparted by Brother Eli to enlighten on of his critics? Don't you feel how courteous and polite this man who you bash? All of his answers are from the Bible and reality which are backed up by proofs. If anyone won't be enlighten with these things presented here, he / she has a problem. We wish you well, ma'am. God bless you.

  54. Sermons are boring because it is a testimony of man and not of God...Let us listen to Bro. Eli talking about the testimony of God all in the bible..."enjoyable D ba?" Always hungering for more..."at sana PBB na"

  55. Any activity of man under the sun becomes boring especially when it is not meaningful...'Attend tayo sa PBB dahil sasamahan tayo ni Jesus".

  57. King Solomon said that every thing under the sun is vanity meaning despite his enormous resources and God given wisdom the word bored or being bored was experienced by him but eventually he said in Ecclesiastes 12:13
    "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." So, now I am inviting you all to read the blogs of Bro. Eli and you find educating yourselves with the word of
    God never boring.
