End of the World Predictions and False Doctrines by False Iglesia Chapels – Common Denominator
Matthew 24:36 KJVBut of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Come tomorrow and in the few hours after, we will know a lot of liars who marked December 21, 2012 with lies, the foolishness of persons interpreting the End of the World using the Mayan Calendar, and the men who had and will predict the same.
The first century Christians were taught that only the Father knows the day and hour. Bro. Eli Soriano taught the same bible based answer to the Members, Church of God International, MCGI and to the enquirers composed of different nationalities to his program, “Itanong Mo Kay Soriano, Biblia ang sasagot” in english, “Ask Bro. Eli, the Bible Will Answer”, in the Philippines and the rest of the world. In his blog, www.esoriano.wordpress.com, he also mentioned that those who predict the end of the world are liars.
Whether it mean the end of the world or as some Mayans’ patrons say that what will happen in 12-21-12 is just a renewal is a blatant lie!

There will be no renewal! Nothing extraordinary is going to happen on such date. Trust in God and not in lying humans! Jer.17:5

The exact day and hour of the end of the world predictions are not the only lies of most of teachers in religions. There are preconceived ideas in religion, even in different denominations who insist they are Christians.
1 Corinthians 4:6 KJVAnd these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
I had received a comment from Moises Mendez. He said he’s an INC, Iglesia ni Cristo founded by Felix Ysagun Manalo. All he said were INC tirades, accusations without proof. He didn’t even let the chance pass to mention what he most likely learned from his INC of Manalo Ministers’ about Bro. Eli. Why can’t Moises Mendez write about what he learned in 15 years? Moises Mendez for example said,
“…Do you know how many times he change his religion’s name? The truth is I gave Bro. Eli a chance to convert me and for 15 years that I monitored him, I didn’t learned anything new from him and some of them are contradiction to the bible…“
Bro. Eli always say, one example he said during his debate with Marcos Cavalcante, a former preacher of Assembly of God, that he was not there to introduce about himself but the Truth in the Bible. Another example which you can watch, “How should a servant of the Lord preach God’s words?” from the official website of The Old Path (TheOldPath.TV). Bro. Eli answered an enquirer on the phone from Europe saying,
“I am not trying to show myself to people, I am trying to show people the glory of God’s Gospel. I want people to understand the glory of God’s Gospel. I debate, I discuss things with opponents of my faith not to show that I am knowledgeable of the Scriptures but to show people what is the true teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.” You see, as the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:5 and we read:
2 Corinthians 4:5 KJV
5For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
“…See, according to Paul, we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. You see that brother? I have not said anything about myself. I am always opening to people what is written in the Scriptures. I do not mind telling anything or any information about myself to people, after all I am nothing. I am nothing. I do not preach myself. I preach the Lord Jesus Christ and we are servants for Jesus’s sake according to the Bible. So, what I’m trying to show to people is the glorious Gospel of Lord Jesus Christ.”
2 Corinthians 4:4-5 KJV
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
“…They are servants for Jesus’ sake. And what is required of them by Jesus? That the glorious gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ be made known unto people because Satan, the god of this world, hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. So, In order for the glorious gospel of Christ to shine unto people we have to unfold the blindness of the people who were made blind by Satan. We have to take that blindfold away from them by preaching the true gospel of Christ. And that is what I want to show to people. I am not concerned about myself, for myself I am nothing. That is what I believe.“
But isn’t it questionable that Moises Mendez failed to know this given that he mentioned spending 15 years monitoring Bro. Eli’s preaching? Can’t he read Bro. Eli’s blog or MCGI’s official website if he’s afraid to be seen in MCGI gatherings or locales by his INC brethren? What’s his intention in monitoring Bro. Eli for 15 years? I wrote in my previous post that in Jesus Miracle Crusade Int’l. Ministry, JMCIM/JMC, we were prohibited to watch other religious programs, and yet I saw in front of the Pastor’s house, inside the compound known as the “Pastoral House”, some prayer warriors and workers set up a colored TV and tuned in to Bro. Eli’s exposition program. Perhaps this was one of those days they would tune in to Bro. Eli’s tv program they’d recorded, to his words uttered for legal cases, I don’t know. Can someone please correct me if I am wrong? They did this one Saturday morning after the Friday Overnight Prayer Meeting in Novaliches after most of the JMC brethren left, while most of the workers cleared the area of rattan chairs and a hundred or more of long wooden benches and tidied the compound up. In comparison, one of Moises Mendez’ former INC ni Manalo ministers testified on TV how he watches Bro. Eli’s TV program in his room, in a compound, quietly as he feared his INC of Manalo brethren finding out what he’s watching! It really depends on the intent of the heart. Sometimes one seek anonymity for fear of peer pressure, and that happens to kids as well. When there is danger in one’s life, fear of retaliation, one will try to do things safely, a rational and logical thing to do. But here comes Moises Mendez telling us what kept him busy in 15 years without hesitations. Will he be frowned upon or regarded in the off chance his INC of Manalo brethren read his confession or report?
Proverbs 20:4 KJV
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
Proverbs 26:16 KJV
The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
For the sake of correct information, you can read some backgrounder about MCGI’s history written in www.elisoriano.com for example:
…In their belief that the group formerly led by Bro. Perez already went astray in the teachings of God, Bro. Eli, together with the elders in the Church, left the group led by Gugulan. Most of the elders who went with him testified that they have heard Bro. Perez preach that it is strictly prohibited in the Bible for a woman to rule over the Church of God.
On March 30, 1977, Bro. Eli registered the group “Mga Kaanib sa Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohanan sa Bansang Pilipinas” (Members of the Church of God in Christ Jesus, the Pillar and Ground of Truth in the Philippines, Inc.). Bro. Eli used the word “saligan” (ground) in reference to the Greek word hedraioma, and not “suhay” (brace), which is used in the group of Gugulan. In the Greek Bible, hedraioma means “ground” and not “brace.”
On January 13, 2004, Bro. Eli registered the name Members Church of God International, the name the Church currently uses, in response to the growing number of members in other countries, both Filipinos and non-Filipinos. Despite the persecution presented by other religious groups, the congregation he leads remains steadfast….
The history is clear! But not to Moises Mendez who also failed to provide concrete examples of contradictions perceived by his INC of Manalo’s mind! What did he write to me? He only wrote a summary of tirades to sow seeds of doubt! The tirades he wrote are what the speakers and Ministers of INC stone to Bro. Eli in TV. Truth is, in NET25, INC of Manalo TV program Ang Tamang Daan, in english, The Right Path, the hosts are the ones who make an ungodly and unprofessional spectacle of themselves, broadcasting mangled videos and words of Bro. Eli, knowing original tapes are existing. So, who is lying? INC of Manalo members should think about that! Can’t Moises Mendez write about it too?
You will also read later how Moises Mendez wrote encouragements for me to go back to MCGI should I decided to listen and be dissatisfied with their INC of Manalo doctrine. But are INC of Manalo doctrines biblical? When I was still in Jesus Miracle Crusade Int’l. Ministry, JMCIM/JMC, I learned to believe that the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit is Jesus, of Oneness; proof of this one can be read on JMC pulpit the embossed, sometimes engraved words, ” The Jesus Church”. But here comes Moises Mendez’ who wanted me to learn from INC ni Manalo that the Lord Jesus Christ is mere man. How can you trust a mere man?
Here’s Moises Mendez’ comment which you can read in my post, “Why Willy Santiago and his cohorts were given to Satan“:
Below was my previous reply to Moises Mendez:
To my INC commenter, if you are impressed with your Chapel more than Manalo’s teachings, that’s your problem.
