ADD Worldwide Bible Exposition hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano

May 29, 2012

UNTV37  catered the latest Ang Dating Daan Worldwide Bible Exposition through its program “Ang Dating Daan” (The Old Path) wherein people from different remote places can ask the host, Bro. Eli Soriano, the presiding minister of Members Church of God International (MCGI).

I was about to sleep that night but since I am not yet sleepy, I tune in (as always do every night) to UNTV 37 and watch Ang Dating Daan program.  The man with his colleage, in Navotas,  is asking series of question to Bro. Soriano about  “tithes”   and claiming that tithing at present is still part of God’s law and Christians must follow it. Bro. Eli give him ample time to discuss his side. As I remember, the man from Navotas cited Mathew 28:20 as he is claiming that all laws including tithing as law of Moses and law of God shall be taught in all the world.

Mat 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (KJV)

The man from Navotas mentioned different verses that I already forgot. Anyway it will be shown to the program again.  What made me excited is the responses made by Bro. Eli in his claims.  To those who do not yet hear Bro. Eli and his preaching, laws of Moses including tithing, according to Bible is not the law that Christians must be followed, but the laws of Christ. Bro. Eli said that
member “per se” can give ten percent (10%) , or less or more than ten percent, which was according to the purpose of his heart. Bro. Eli read II Corinthians:

II Co 9:7  Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. (KJV)

Bro. Eli explains that what is unlawful today is for the pastor or preacher to collect tithes from his members, because the authority to collect tithes is given to Levites and to Israelites alone and not to anybody. And the ten percent of the ten percent collected from the chidlren of Israel will be offered as well to God.

Num_18:26  Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.

And that was law of Moses and to the children of Israel must obey.  Bro. Eli said, we are not Israelites and pastors today are not Levites. Thats was very true. Those greedy pastors even uses Bible verse to extort their members.

Mal 3:8  Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
 
These pastors told their members that they rob God when they did not gave their tithes to them. What a trick?! The reason why there are many pastors who are very rich and even have they own jet plane and airport. In the Philippines, greedy pastors who love tithes very much have big mansions and millions of pesos, while their members are poor as the word poor implies.

Bro. Eli further explained that law of Moses will not justify anymore. We will justify by the law of Christ.

Act 13:39  And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

To refute furthermore the claim of the man in Navotas saying that tithing as law of God given to Moses should be taught to all nations by citing Mathew 28:20, Bro. Eli boldly read the verse and pointed out that what will be taught to all nation as Lord Jesus Christ said to his apostles is HIS COMMANDMENTS.

Mat 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (KJV)

Wow, that was very clear indeed!!! (clap clap clap)

Truly, the word of God written in the Scripture is as clear as crystal if its explain by the messenger sent by God himself.

For that, thanks be to Him and to God be the glory forever!!!
