Character Assassination: Losers’ FavoriteMarch 15, 2012
As per Wikipedia definition to the term “character assassination”
“- is an attempt to tarnish a person’s reputation. It may involve exaggeration, misleading half-truths, or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the targeted person. It is a form of defamation and can be a form of ad hominemargument.
In practice, character assassination may involve doublespeak, spreading of rumors, innuendo or deliberate misinformation on topics relating to the subject’s morals, integrity, and reputation. It may involve spinning information that is technically true, but that is presented in a misleading manner or is presented without the necessary context.”
the first person who comes to my mind is Bro. Eli Soriano, the Presiding Minister of Members Church of God International or most popularly known as Ang Dating Daan.
Preaching the doctrines coming from the Scripture, that collapses man-made and self-interpreted teachings of other religious denominations, Bro. Eli became the favorite target of character assassination. Envying the wisdom he is preaching to the congregation and exposing Biblical facts to many people through Bible Expositions, he became the nemesis of these false preachers and their greatest nightmare!
While he is just only reading the Scriptures, together with the official statements of other religion whether from their official books or gazettes, to light the truth hidden by grievous wolves for hundred of years, many eyes opened from deep sleep, many souls embraced the light after realizing they were in the gross dark for so long, that conversion made the wolves so angry. So the wolves, instead of facing Bro. Eli in debate to stand the righteousness of their so-called doctrines, fabricated lies against his person. And these lies are not anymore new to us, many who heard it believe without knowing the truth first, without hearing the part of the Bro. Eli, these are the people who live in believing lies and hatred. They hated Bro.Eli, made false accusations, baseless statements they manufactured with the help of their father, the devil. They already killed Bro.Eli by their big mouth of lies. Killers that are still in the open and freely doing their deceitful business.
But if the wolves think they scored, they are wrong. God, who sent Bro. Eli to speak His words to people, is always looking at him, taking care of him, educating him, so that in the battle field of true and false religion, Bro. Eli shines. And yes, he is shining as the sun in the noon, because of the Word of God, the light he carry.
