Why we are not so picky in cleaving with religion?March 30, 2012
When you are studying the word of God written in the Bible in Members Church of God International (MCGI) or most popularly known as Ang Dating Daan. and your teacher is Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, many things were revealed to you, things you have not heard nor learned from your any religious affiliation as an ordinary member.
Studying the Bible is not new to us, many have done this, and continuously studying, but the question is, have they learned already? Many said, Mary is the mother God (Lord Jesus Christ), is this correct? They even believed that Mary until death is a virgin? Is this Scientific and Biblical fact? We (in MCGI) believes that Lord Jesus has biological brothers and sisters while others do not? These is just few of many questions Bro. Eli had revealed to us, and even to the inquirers/listeners of Ang Dating Daan TV Program, and those who attended some Bible Exposition Worldwide. My point is, we do not have to go to university and learn these things, spend money to learn theology, just simply open your television or surf the internet, and presto Bro. Eli is there talking sensible things about salvation, about the words of God, that many preachers do not know.
Listen before you speak.
While others are freak in accusing Bro. Eli and his teaching is not-Biblical, why not try to listen first before you reprove. Attend the mass indoctrination or listen to worldwide Bible exposition before you speak badly to our preacher. The Bible said,
James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
Investigate before you reprove.
As consumer of so many commodities, we have this instinct to investigate first, check first things before we purchase. We are very clever in buying things, right!. But why not in religion, why not picky on this? Because if we made mistake in choosing the religion we are going to follow, our souls is at stake. We will lose our souls and never get it again once evil got it. The Bible says,
1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
Try to use discernment, your instinct.
Yes, we heard many false prophets are gone out into the world, specially on the last days, but God gave us His word how we can discern the true one from false. God said:
Joh 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
So if the teachings or the doctrines you heard from your religious pastor/priest/evangelist is not from the Bible or not from God, he is speaking from himself, that made his doctrine man-made, false, fabricated doctrines, worst term is doctrines of devils!
Mar 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Of course we do not want to be deceived by devil, right? We do not want to follow the devil and be devils’ advocate. We do not want to be called son of the devil, right? Lord Jesus said to the Pharisees and scribes who do not follow God’s nor hear Lord Jesus Christ’s word,
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
It’s high time to wake up on long sleep.
Are you really satisfied on what you are hearing every time you go to your place of worship? You know the commandment, you read it straight from the Bible, do you follow it or you just ignore? God said,
Col 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
Are you following this commandment? God said,
Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
Ephesians 6:2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
As children of God, to our beloved parents, are we following these commandment? Or we do whatever we want to do and respect not the feelings of our parents? God said as well to women:
1Ti 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
1Ti 2:10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
Women, do you follow this? Are you wearing modest apparel or the other way around, that make men sin?
Just ask yourself friends, be true to your self. If we really saying we “LOVE” God, and follow not His commandment, we are fooling ourselves. And if that happened, we are also able to fool others as well.
Invitation to all.
We do not know when and where our earth time will end. Today we are strong but tomorrow, we will not know. And this is my encouragement to all of you, if you really believe in God, you must also believe that He sent someone to teach us, for us to repent and come back to His reproof.
Pro 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
We will be having a Worldwide Bible Exposition today, March 30, 2012, 7:00 PM at all Ang Dating Daan Coordinating Centers. Please come and learn things that you heard not before.
While on April 16, 2012, 6:30 PM, Ang Dating Daan Mass Indoctrina tion will be held in all ADD Coordinating Centers, wherein Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon will teach us the doctrines of Lord Jesus Christ that we need to know and to follow to have everlasting life.
