Catholic Member, Self-proclaimed Greek Linguist: Real or Geek?

May 28, 2015

I thank God on this.

The more they pull the string and accuse Bro. Eli of no-basis- language illiteracy, this time it seems it turns around, the real ignorant in language of Greek reveals. Thanks to internet!

In one of many post of Bro. Eli Soriano in his blogsite, he once more refuted the Catholic teaching of calling the head of their church “pope” or “father”, which Biblically contradicts Christ’s teaching as written in,


And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.


According to Bro. Eli, the Roman Catholic Church authorities used the other English version of the Bible to suffice their false doctrines, despising the prohibition of using other English version. The phrase they referred as basis of their doctrine is “I became your father” wherein the Catholic Bible is translated as “I begotten you”:




On Bro. Eli’s blog, referring to interlinear Greek translation of “begotten”, Greek text 1080 is translated as;




From a variation of G1085; to procreate (properly of the father, but by extension of the mother); figuratively to regenerate: – bear, beget, be born, bring forth, conceive, be delivered of, gender, make, spring.


Unacceptable to RCC followers, one self-claimed Greek expert contested Bro. Eli and accused him of Biblical Greek ignorance. He said Bro. Eli did not understand Greek word ἐγέννησα (egennēsa) and just only understand γεννάω (gennaō) of Greek Lexicon. According to this self-claimed expert, the Greek translation of the verse is:


Greek nT



Is Bro. Eli incorrect in using the Greek word “γεννάω (gennaō)”?

Or only the fault-finder mind thinks of it.


Referring to e-sword,,




By pointing to G1080 to look for meaning of , it will shows,




Do we have problem on this?

Or again for the mind who only thinks is to bring the good man down – things are gone wrong always. Tsk. Tsk.

Lets back to this geek self-proclaim.

So what is ἐγέννησα (egennēsa) in Interlinear Greek New Testament?


interlinear greek1  1 cor 4.15


By clicking G1080,


interlinear greek2  1 cor 4.15


Let’s click G5656 now,


interlinear greek3  1 cor 4.15


What is an AORIST TENSE?

The aorist tense is characterized by its emphasis on punctiliar action; that is, the concept of the verb is considered without regard for past, present, or future time. There is no direct or clear English equivalent for this tense, though it is generally rendered as a simple past tense in most translations.

The events described by the aorist tense are classified into a number of categories by grammarians. The most common of these include a view of the action as having begun from a certain  point (“inceptive aorist”), or having ended at a certain point
(“cumulative aorist”), or merely existing at a certain point (“punctiliar aorist”). The categorization of other cases can be found in Greek reference grammars.

The English reader need not concern himself with most of these  finer points concerning the aorist tense, since in most cases they cannot be rendered accurately in English translation, being fine points of Greek exegesis only. The common practice
of rendering an aorist by a simple English past tense should suffice in most cases.


We are not an expert here but we know how to read.   Thanks to Mr. Google. Thanks be to GOD. Even they boast how good they are in Greek language, the concept of the Bible is still shaded to them. Their eyes are covered with veils unless they accept the light.



It is saddening that intellectual people as they claimed they are, is use by evil spirits to admonish the truth written in the Bible. It is very clear that we should not call any men as our spiritual father but only our Father in heaven. If we are true Christians, we should follow our Christ, he calls every man who do the will of God as brothers, sisters and mothers – never father.


Mat_12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.



Now, it is up to us who to believe for our soul’s sake.


Palatino’s Bill binawi na

June 26, 2012

Okay na sana ang bill na isinumite ni Kabataan Partylist Rep. Raymond Palatino, ang House Bill 6330 entitled “Religious Freedom in Government Offices Act” kung saan naglalayong ipagbawal sa mga government offices at sa mga paremeters nito ang pagco-conduct ng mga religious rites at ang paglalagay ng mga religious images.

Ang kanyang proposed bill ay sumasang-ayon daw Section 5 ng Philippines Constitution’s  Bill of Right – ang Freeedom of Religion.

Ngunit nito lamang, napag-alaman kong binawi na rin ni Rep. Palatino ang nasabing proposal bill. Paano ba naman, 85% ng populasyon ng bansa ay Katoliko, at sila lang naman ang may pinakamaraming images na inilalagay kung saan-saan, kasama na nga ang mga opisina ng gobyerno.

Ang masasabi ko lang dito, SAYANG! Sabi ni Dr Jose Rizal, nasa mga kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan.  Kung sa mga ganitong bagay walang “say” ang mga kabataan na isa namang magandang panukala, isang pagbabago, na sa palagay ko’y wala namang masasagaang paniniwala, dahil hindi naman na-violate ng bill na ito ang paniniwala ng mga katoliko una sa lahat.

Palagi natin kasing nakakalimutan na ang Simbahan ay dapat hiwalay sa Gobyerno natin. Hindi dapat nakikialam ang simbahan (anomang relihiyon iyan) sa gawain ng gobyerno o sa pagpapatakbo nito.  Ang bawat isa ay may karapatan makialam sa ating gobyerno sa tamang paraan ng pakikialam.At hindi lang mga katoliko ang may transaksyon sa gobyerno, maraming religious denomination ang nakikipagtrasact dito.  Kung makakita ang sinomang hindi member ng Roman Catholic ng isang relics/images dito, iisipin kaya niyang, pag-aari ba ito ng simbahang katoliko?

Ang bawat isa ay may karapatang maniwala, nirerespeto ko ang karapatang iyon. Pero ang hindi ko nirerespeto ang ang mismong paniniwala nila, tulad ng mga images/rebulto na niluluhuran at tinitirikan ng kandila kahit tanghaling tapat.  Pasensiya na mga kaibigan katoliko, pero sana naman po ay magmulat na tayo ng mga mata, matagal na po tayong inaalipin ng relihiyong iyan, apat na raang taon na po tayong inaalipin, na pati si Dr. Jose Rizal ay nasaksihan ang pang-aalipin na iyan.
