Introduction Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new: However, upon further study of its history and of the corpus of Mr.
Rather, it is more ironic than absurd, because it really is an old path, simply not in the sense that Mr. Soriano thinks it is.Ang Dating Daan Bible Study - Bakit may Ikatlong Langit
A bit of background first. Schisms are the plague of all schismatics. Once a group of factious men splits off from the Mystical Body of Christ to follow winds of doctrine more to their liking, little remains to bind them to each other. Hence, whenever someone comes to an irreconcilable doctrinal disagreement with the leadership of the schismatic church, or simply wants power and authority that they have but are not willing to give him, the first schism is followed by further schisms, and factions proliferate.
This is the principle which underlies the history of Ang Dating Daan. The story starts with a man named Felix Manalo, who left the Catholic Church as a teenager. He dabbled briefly in a cult called Colorum which claimed direct communication with God, and then joined the Methodist Episcopal Church and became a minister.
He left them as well after deciding they were wrong about observing a Saturday Sabbath, and briefly flirted with atheism and agnosticism. In any case, in started a church for himself, which would later claim Protestants to be apostates, and itself to be the one true Church of Christ outside of which there is no salvation.
On December 25,ministers of the Christian Mission honored Felix Manalo as an outstanding evangelist. The affair, held at the Gloria Theater in Tondo, Manila was attended by Church members and several Protestant pastors… In August Manalo visited all local congregations before departing for the United States to advance his Bible studies. He advised the brethren to keep united and protect one another in his absence.
One day in September that year he sailed for the U. True to the nature which this schismatic church inherited in its genesis, it soon begat the father of Ang Dating Daan with another schism.
The day before Eliseo Soriano turned seventeen, his parents took him to hear one of his sermons; the topic was, not surprisingly, the true Church of God according to the Bible, and Soriano was convinced.
Perez baptized him, and made him a minister, the only other minister in the whole church. For Soriano to apply it to his little group years later is wholly erroneous.
Consider how mild the persecutions Soriano has endured really are compared to what the early Church went through. The early Christians were torn to pieces by lions while crowds of heathens laughed at them; Soriano got sued, and lost. They were crucified; Soriano got briefly kicked off television.
Soriano in fact has not endured any more persecution than Mohammed endured, whose persecution consisted of verbal abuse, a boycott, family pressure, and juvenile pranks like people dumping trash on his porch.
In any case, Bro. Not surprisingly, Gugulan sued him, and the Philippine Supreme Court ruled in her favor. And somehow, in spite of his ignominious origins, legal troubles, and self contradiction, Soriano has managed to draw a rather large following to himself, including many former Catholics.
He apparently has an extraordinary memory, and amazes his listeners with his ability to regurgitate Scripture passages off the top of his head. Soriano must be very charismatic as well, given the way his followers fawn over him. As noted above, Soriano claims to be the only sincere evangelist. Everyone else, besides his underlings, is a charlatan, according to him. Naturally, he also claims that he has been predicted by Scripture, specifically Ecclesiastes 9: He is, as he styles himself, the poor wise man who saved his city from destruction.
A poor and wise man saved his city from being destroyed by the army of a great King, but afterwards no one remembered his name. This may be a parable, or it may refer to a real event Scripture records similar occurrences in Judg 9: But in either case, it is narrated as an event which was completed in the past. Moreover, Soriano has yet to turn aside any armies or save any cities, and given the way he dresses, he clearly is not poor, and given the way he preaches, neither is he wise.
Clearly, if he were to preach his gospel to the entire world, his name would not be universally forgotten. In sum, no passage of Scripture refers directly to Mr. He is simply one of the many false prophets contributing to the great apostasy predicted thereby. But he impedes his followers from discovering this by forbiding them to interpret the Bible. God did not give anybody the right to interpret the Bible! Do not interpret it.
Doing this is a clear act of deception. Soriano is clearly inconsistent with his own rule. We will see again and again that Soriano breaks his own rule and interprets the Bible, and does a poor job of it at that. And of course, the idea that the Bible is so clear that no one needs to interpret it is itself unbiblical. One would think, then, that Soriano would avoid this passage. However, he does not, for in a later article Soriano teaches that yes, the Bible does need to be interpreted after all.
He quotes 2 Peter 3: We really should know how to use the bible. We should not perceive it as something so simple that anybody can readily interpret. In fact, it is the opposite! The Bible is not a plain as it may seem to be. The Holy Scriptures has the highest degree and the utmost quality of words and wisdom any book could offer that a man can read in his lifetime…. The Bible is unique and more special than any other book essential to our salvation.
Hence, not anybody can just stand up and explain, elucidate, or even interpret the words of the Almighty Himself! But I will make a brief digression first. Soriano illustrates his point with an example: Reproached of men, and despised of people. Still, in 1 John 5: Is He a worm, a man, or a God?
This is one of the greatest debates in the religious world; but how can we, in our humble being, be able to understand this seemingly complicated issue? Is it possible for us, human beings, to comprehend complexities such as these?

Soriano, that is why Jesus established a Church against which the gates of hell would not prevail Matt For although almost anyone could see that Psalm God guided the successors of the apostles, the bishops of the early Catholic Church, men like St.
Ignatius of Antioch and St. Athanasius of Alexandria, to explain to their flocks the mystery of the Incarnation of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, true God, as the true man Jesus Christ, and this understanding, received from the apostles and transmitted and developed by the same bishops of the early Catholic Church, was finally codified at Catholic ecumenical Councils such as Nicaea and Chalcedon.
Christendom has never been without authentic Christian teachers, the successors of the apostles. Incidentally, this is the same logic that Dan Brown uses in The Da Vinci Code to argue that Jesus was a mere man who taught peace and worshiped the sacred feminine. This is how Soriano convinces his followers to believe that his doctrines, so foreign to Christian history, actually represent authentic apostolic teaching.
Soriano concludes this article by relating the means of properly interpreting the Bible. First, one must have the Spirit of God, which requires one to fear the Lord and keep His commandments.
He reconciles his statements thus far with his dictum that no man may interpret the Bible by insisting that the Bible interprets itself, and that if one has the Spirit of God and searches the Scriptures diligently, one will find the explanation of the passage one does not understand in some other passage somewhere else.
Tremendous insights can be gained into biblical interpretation through historical, grammatical, and linguistic analysis, and this often requires reference to non-biblical literature. Try figuring out what archegos means, for instance, without referring to extra-biblical Greek writings it is used only once in the entire New Testament: Archeology and geography also throw light on much of what is obscure in Holy Scripture.
Finally, the Church Fathers, who held on to the traditions which they received from the apostles 2 Thess 2: But Soriano would cut off his flock from these tools, and from education in the methods of biblical exegesis, and leave them adrift all by themselves to try to interpret these ancient texts, written in a language and culture far removed from their own, and expect them to just be able to read and understand. And naturally, they will fail.
Then, they will have to turn to Bro. This is where his self-contradiction reaches its consummation. All of these show the need for a teacher who has the Spirit of God so that one may understand the Word of God.
Nothing less would be able to lead one to truth and guide one until the end. And God is faithful that he would not leave his people alone without one. Fortunate, indeed, is one who has found that true preacher.
As attested to by many, God is really with Bro.
He can see what others do not and has the understanding of the Word of God not found in anyone even among sages. And for that, how blessed is the Philippines! And if you truly care for truth, you must make sure you are being led by someone with an understanding given by God, and teaching things of God — like a spring that never runs dry. There is no secret in the Bro. The Bible gives its own explanation in John 3: Eli preaches, he makes distinctions between quantity of the word, its quality, its direction, time, construction of meaning, and extent of meaning.
He goes as far as explaining the source and the intended receiver to place the message in proper context… Truly, none can compare with the understanding that Bro. Eli has that symbolisms in the Bible are effectively expounded to his congregation and to his hearers in bible expositions.
While he has not formally studied so-called hermeneutics that are the fare of secular schools, his level of understanding shows an awesome depth that each topic — unheard of before from all corners of this world — is as valuable as his next topic would be. Foremost, he unlocks mysteries from the Word of God like nobody. Before, anyone who feared the Lord and patiently worked at it could interpret the Bible. Now, only he can. The contradiction could hardly be clearer.
Now I am eagerly awaiting Mr. For he has left them utterly dependent on him to learn anything at all about Sacred Scripture. Indeed, how dare they question he who is receiving direct revelation from God.
How dare they think to read what competent Bible scholars and exegetes have to say about Sacred Scripture! Soriano is the only faithful preacher! All who oppose him are charlatans! Do not listen to this man. He is incompetent to interpret the Bible, and he contradicts himself.
But if that still is not enough, let us examine his repeated appeals to his allegedly exemplary character as proof of his divine commission.
Let us even grant that what he says about his life is true. Even so, do not the Catholic saints far exceed him in holiness, sacrifice, labor, and love? Has he stared down a barbarian at the head of an army of the same, as St.
Leo the Great did?
Did he resist a threat to be boiled in oil when he was but nine years of age, as the Fatima children did? Has he reduced his sleep to three hours a night to attend to the spiritual needs of his children, as St. Until he has, he cannot claim the holiness of his life as a reason why anyone should embrace his doctrine instead of the doctrine of the Catholic Church.
In sum, to all followers of this old path, I want you to know that Soriano is not the only one who loves you. The Catholic Church loves you, and wants you back. Moreover, she will welcome you back with open arms. Soriano and the Stinkblossom Art thou a master in Israel, and knowest not these things? In fact, if I were to write a book about every blunder in history that was larger than this blunder, it might still be a shorter book than Leaving Behind the Fundamental Doctrines of Christ.
He somehow completely misreads Hebrews 6: Paul is telling his readers to forget about or ignore these fundamental doctrines: But why did Paul admonished the first Christians that they including Paul himself must leave behind these fundamental doctrines of Christ? The fundamental is more on the material! Jesus wants us to attain, not only physical, but spiritual blessings. The fundamental purpose of laying on of hands is to heal the physical or material body of the subject person.
But Christ, in his capacity, wants us to seek for the spiritual significance of His teachings because this is the way to learn more of Him… Why then do we have to stop or leave this fundamental doctrine of Christ on the laying on of hands? It only displays their total ignorance of what Saint Paul have said almost two thousand years ago that perfection can be attained by leaving the fundamental doctrine of the resurrection of the dead.
Paul is saying that once his audience has sufficiently mastered the basics of the Christian religion, it will be possible for his discourse to advance to more lofty themes. Analogously, a math teacher might tell his students that once they have mastered arithmetic they can move on to algebra. The foundation can never be forgotten. To risk mixing metaphors, once the new Christian has been nursed to a certain degree of maturity on spiritual milk, the teacher can then begin to give him solid food Heb 5: Once we learn how to read, write, and do basic math, we can move on to history, philosophy, engineering, etc.
But that does not mean we can forget about reading, writing, and basic math, or the more advanced subjects will become impossible. So too, should a Christian forget about repentance, faith, baptism, the laying of hands, and the resurrection of the dead, he will turn his religion into nonsense. Soriano, that learning the meaning of a few words of Latin, whether prima facie or dominus vobiscum is really not that hard? In any case, following his opening harangue against false preachers, a feature almost ubiquitous in his works, Soriano quickly jumps into a fairly odd theological disputation: But as one who is so famed for his ability to memorize the Bible, he should know that both concepts are present in Scripture.
Jesus has an intimate and direct relationship with each individual soul consecrated to His service, and jealousy need not ensue. That Soriano thinks jealousy would ensue from such a relationship merely demonstrates once again that he is incompetent to interpret Scripture.
He has projected his own erroneous presuppositions onto the Word of God, and his exegesis has been clouded accordingly. One wonders if he is reading the same Bible as the rest of us. Scripture frequently records that the Apostles laid their hands on persons in perfect bodily health, in order to confer a spiritual gift. Paul likewise urges St. Timothy to kindle afresh the charisma, the spiritual, supernatural gift which he received through the laying of hands 2 Timothy 1: That gift was his ordination to the episcopacy.
The Apostles, through the laying of hands, also ordained St. Stephen and six other men to the diaconate Acts 6: So, one sees that in Scripture the laying of hands is ordered primarily to supernatural and spiritual realities, not mere bodily health as Soriano says. And the Catholic Church is ever faithful to the Bible. Moving on, it does not take Soriano long to make another obvious mistake: Hebrews 11 is about the era before the Cross, the era of the Old Covenant.
Men like Abraham and Noah died in faith, but did not go immediately into heaven.
Paul says in Hebrews Paul informs us, watch over the lives of Christians. Should we die in a state of grace, we will follow them. We will not lie senseless in our graves until the general resurrection on the last day. We will be judged immediately and sent to either heaven, purgatory, or hell; on the last day this judgment will merely be publicly declared.
Felix Manalo, for teaching that outside of it there is no salvation. However, excepting his provision for the salvation of those who never hear the Gospel, Soriano in effect makes the exact same claim, for while he does reject any form of extra ecclesiam meam nulla salus outside my church there is no salvation in theory, this is essentially what his doctrine amounts to in practice.
Although he teaches that the true Christian church existed before him, that he joined it, and did not create it, and is emphatic that it is forbidden for preachers to create their own churches, on the other hand he teaches that the only means of joining the true church is to assent to the whole body of apostolic doctrine as recorded by the Bible.
Who is the only preacher who properly understands the Bible and teaches all its commandments without addition or deletion?
Who is the only preacher who uses only the Bible to interpret the Bible, without referring to other books? His literature reminds his followers: Not all preachers can save, however. Only the faithful one used by the Lord as vessel can save — himself and those that hear him. As former President Joseph Estrada once said, nobody will care for the Filipinos but the Filipinos themselves. Many foreigners have come to our country but they only deceived us. We can have no other ally except our fellow Filipino… a Filipino, who speaks clearly… a Filipino who knows every righteous thing that the Bible says.
I am extending you whatever I can offer, my countrymen. That is what I am here for. Whenever they use the Bible, they employ deception.
Errors abound in this sermon. More on this below. But in addition to the standard Protestant fare, he also says something so uniquely absurd and incompetent that I have to mention it here. Tower of ivory, pray for us. House of gold, pray for us.

Ark of the covenant, pray for us. Gate of Heaven, pray for us. Even towers, which are without tongues, are petitioned to pray for them. Even the house of gold, even the tower of ivory, even the Ark of the Covenant, even the tower of David! Where did you get those ideas? Why are you also urging the gate of heaven to pray for you? They could perhaps produce a squeaking sound, but to pray to… that is impossible! The gate of heaven could not pray!

That is not found in the Bible. Why are you calling on so many things to pray for you? How did Soriano miss this? Is it because of ignorance, dishonesty, or spiritual blindess that he cannot grasp the obvious meaning of these prayers? Should he not be able to infer, given that the previous 27 lines of the prayer invoked Mary under a different title, that this is the meaning of these lines as well?
And could he not at least have asked a Catholic to explain this prayer to him before he started expatiating with such ridiculous pronouncements? And it does not take Soriano long to ram his foot even deeper down his throat. Filipino apologist Marwil Llasos explains: In fact, our national hero, Jose Rizal a true-blooded Tagalog from Calamba, Laguna wrote to the women of Malolos Malolos, Bulacan, also a tagalog-speaking town.
Soriano, in his ignorance, does not understand classical language. When Soriano is in ignorance, instead of having the humility to ask someone more knowledgable to enlighten him, he just assumes he is right and merrily blunders his way along.
He quite confidently makes his bombastic pronouncements on all manner of subjects, and it never quite dawns on him what a fool he is making out of himself, that he does not know what he is talking about, that he is the proverbial Emperor who has no clothes.
Eli Soriano’s quotes
Pray God some day he will look at himself and realize he is naked. Has Soriano not read this verse? Third, in another sermon35 he quotes Proverbs John, Eliseo, Jude, Elizabeth. Perhaps he should have let the Bible interpret the Bible, and read Proverbs Their reputation will remain foul forever. See also Ecclesiastes 7: This is really quite simple! Literally every competent, published biblical commentator understands this passage.
Jew and Christian, Catholic and Protestant, conservative and liberal: And if you combine two molecules of hydrogen with one molecule of oxygen, the result is water. Put some ice in a glass. After a while, there would be moisture outside the glass. That is because the molecules of hydrogen had combined with the molecule of oxygen. The reason water condenses on the outside of a glass of ice water is not because new water molecules are being formed through the combination of atmospheric hydrogen and oxygen.
The true explanation is as follows: If the air becomes saturated with more water vapor than it can hold, some of the water will precipitate out as moisture. He is equal to the Father as God but not greater than the Father because He was sent. Greater than the Holy Spirit. He believes the Father who is the Living God was the overall Savior who must be given credit for all the things He has done by sending saviors during the times past Hebrews 1: Does not believe that He is the only Savior of humanity.
The two kinds of salvation that Jesus will do: Moses was also sent by the Father to become an instrument of salvation and savior to the Israelites Acts 7: The pillar and the ground of the truth. He is judged by God according to his conscience. It is difficult to document every doctrine that Soriano holds because they usually do not put everything into writing. Doctrinal teachings of Soriano may vary from worker to worker. According to one Filipino pastor and author, Soriano is in the process of constructing his doctrine.
His beliefs are yet to be develop in the future. May I ask you something? From my many years of experience, a number of cultist tend to lend a listening ear when I tell them that I usually encounters inconsistencies in their groups doctrines when it does not square with the teachings of the Bible. This becomes my springboard to an open discussion. If possible, have someone intercede for you while you discuss with them or you can pray and listen at the same time while they are talking so the Holy Spirit would move on your behalf.
