A Response by IRAL ELMAN to an Idol Worshiper Priest Abe Arganiosa and Sese Baluga of Splendor

Galatians 2:14 King James Version

14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?

While I was facing the mirror, thinking about Saint Paul, I remembered a reply comment of one Sese Baluga in Splendor’s blog. You know how I write, if you had read my previous posts. I will tackle about the Lectures, puppetry, and tirades of Priest Abe Arganiosa and Sese Baluga and my answers to them from what I learned from Bro. Eli who utilizes the Holy Bible to teach the Members, Church of God International, MCGI.

And while looking in the mirror, I found myself contemplating, because our Ministers in the Church teach us to contemplate, to look in the mirror and see our reflection. As a Christian, this is one of the biblical ways which we can find out if the Lord Jesus Christ’s faith is manifested in us.

2Corinthians 13:5-8 (KJV)

5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? 6 But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.

7 Now I pray to God that ye do no evil; not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. 8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

Also, as Christians, we should live by our faith and should not be mere observers. We should be obedient to our Lord Jesus Christ by following his commandments, accordingly! We are Christians and not pretenders.

James 1:27 (KJV)

27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

It also came to mind a reminder by one of our Church workers after one of our Worldwide Bible Indoctrinations. He said that all of us in the event could argue and say anything we want to say without a basis and each one will believe he is right. If you really want to measure the exact distance of the ceiling from the ground, you do not get it by mere looking or guessing. Everyone can guess, but at the end of the day, what will you profit from it? And this is not how a dedicated master carpenter, an experienced potter, an engineer and the like, especially a preacher of truth will do or teach their students. As a student myself, I do not need the history Catholics link to Christianity, but an answer from a preacher from God, rightly dividing the word of truth using the Holy Bible.

Psalms 16:6-8

6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places;

yea, I have a goodly heritage.

7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel:

my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

8 I have set the Lord always before me:

because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

2 Timothy 2:15-16 (KJV)

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings:for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

One way of knowing if we are Christians is by looking in the mirror. Our reflections will not lie if we are followers of the Jesus Christ of the Bible. Women are commanded to maintain a long hair, given by nature. While men are the opposite.

1Corinthians 11:14-16 (KJV)

14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her:for her hair is given her for a covering. 16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

How about the clothes to wear? For Christians not only women, this is what the bible say:

1Timothy 2:9 (KJV)

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;

Why do the Catholic Nuns cover their head? It is because they know that the followers of Jesus Christ, the women, has to cover their head, although they thought it is a cloth or veil. Even the old women in Spanish era in the Philippines wore vails, and some Manangs living today. Why do the priests wear such dress?

We will know if we are members of the body, that is, the Church, the Church of God if we are not only hearers, but also doers. Obedience is a reflection of what you had learned.

Jame 1:23-24 (KJV)

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

Sese Baluga

Sese Baluga’s reply comment was intended for me instead of a comment for the author, a priest by the name of Abe Arganiosa. Perhaps he does not want to comment about his priest’s unlearned egotistical laugh, neither of the unlearned message the latter wrote. I pity him for defending the wrong person and group. I know the feeling because I grew up as well in another denomination. Growing up and learning that the teachings by my previous group, Jesus Miracle Crusade, JMCIM, are wrong was difficult to bear. Even when Bro. Eli answered my question about the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, I found it hard to digest. So, I know and feel that he has his own reasons and courage to defend his faith, but the question is, is it the faith of Jesus Christ or even the faith of God? He has spent more than half of his life in his church, and that alone could make it even much difficult to accept the truth that worshiping images is Idolatry.

Abe Arganiosa and Splendor1618

Priest Abe Arganiosa prior to the Splendor website has an old website in blogspot that exhibits the same blog title, posts and tirades, his writing forte, but the difference is, as he transferred to a new website that would not limit his maniacal laugh, he did not include the past comments there and instead limit the number of characters the commentators could write to respond to his posts. If it is a facebook limitation, then it is for his benefit. Being the author, splendor1618, could not hide from his penname. His forte writing suggests whose heart and mind the posts came from, or derived from whose sermon, his. He would write the name of his followers when he posts their articles, and yet when it is his time to malign Bro. Eli, you do not see his name but read his foul mouthed writings.

Lectures

Sese Baluga replied to my comment, and it was used by priest Abe Arganiosa, splendor 1618 as his new post. He wrote a title for it to imply that it meant to lecture. I am open to lectures but why would his follower lecture me instead of him? Is it because they share the same human idea, tradition of men, grass roots knowledge? It is about selective use of verses to suggest that the bible agree with them, and they own them as far as they are the other end of the rope, and at the other end is the Church founded on Peter. Does the bible agree with the claims of Abe Arganiosa in splendor, for crying out loud, the faith he has, the church he goes to, and the position he was given to lead, are all from the biblical Church of God? Or is it nothing but another church that carries another gospel, the Roman Catholic Church; that has another faith, Catholicism; another teaching, Cathechism and Dogma, not the biblical Church, that is, the Church of God? I know someone who offers splendor in exchange of worship and serving him. Please allow me to read you a verse:

Luke 4:5-8 (KJV)

5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them:for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. 8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan:for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

I also remembered the same Church of God worker who reminded us that a person who thinks of himself highly is like a glass full of water – you could no longer fill up a glass of water that is already full. The bible said:

Proverbs 27:7 (KJV)

7 The full soul loatheth an honeycomb;

but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.

Whatever you do, your way of life, it is influenced by lectures, by people who lectured you. Almost twelve years in the Church of God, I learned that I am a child that needs to be taught, to drink milk before I could eat meat. And what is the commandment to children in the Church of God? Abide in Him!

1John 2:27-29 (KJV)

27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you:but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.

2John 1:9-11 (KJV)

9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Puppetry

Going back to the mirror, I see my reflections. Whatever I do, it does the same. And another thing it shown me is not just my movement but also my physique. Am I a puppet then? I have my free will and if I follow the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, then I am secured of my life and salvation. If I could see myself in the mirror, reflection of an obedient member of the Church of God, doing good works, which God had before laid that we should walk in them, am I a puppet then? When I committed mistakes and acknowledged them to God, asked for His forgiveness and from the people I hurt, and tried not to commit them, would that make me a puppet?

Ephesians 2:10 (KJV)

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Sese Baluga and his priest, Abe Arganiosa, what do they see when they look in the mirror? Do they look at the mirror, and see only its frame and glass? If they have a chance, I wish they try to honestly contemplate as well. Do they see a puppet, the way this priest Abe Arganiosa portrayed me in his blog?

If you just try to look at the inhumane predicaments of some Catholics being beheaded this year and what not, you will see a big picture of what Catholicism did towards its enemies in faith in time past. Did the Catholics, headed by their Pope, listen to the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Father God when they burned people at the stake? They listened to their Pope Peter (not the St. Peter the Apostle)! These abominable works that they did are being accused to God and Christians by non-believers and the like. God did not order the Catholic Church to do these abominable things!

Matthew 26:51-52 (KJV)

51 And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear. 52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place:for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

The saddest part is people remembered Catholicism for their unbiblical claims and misdeeds that way and thought they were the Christians in the Bible.

It seems as if every Catholics are being called Christian now a days, but they are not Christians because they do not follow the Lord Jesus Christ. What did St. Paul write to the Romans?

Romans 12:17-21

17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath:for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink:for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Some brethren who came out from INC even testified that cleaving to the Church of God changed their attitude towards people outside the Church, they learned how to be humane and merciful and forgiving. In JMCIM, even little kids know how to cast out their enemies to be petrified.

James 1:23-24 (KJV)

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

You are not a Christian if you do not follow the Lord Jesus Christ’s teachings and instructions. You are not a Christian when you forgot you were redeemed from your sin, that you are human that needed redemption and mercy, and the people around you need the same.

2Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Any man who will follow the Lord Jesus Christ should abide in his instructions. What came first, the verses below or the Catholic Church?

Exo 20:22-23,1-4 (KJV)

22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. 23 Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold.

1 And God spake all these words, saying, 2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

Acts 17:29 (KJV)

29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

How do Catholicism respond to something that they were guilty of in the history in the first place? Unless they forgot already the sins Pope John II asked for forgiveness which priest Arganiosa blamed to the Catholics. And how many saints are there in Catholicism that even the Prophet Daniel belies their claim!

Daniels 12:10 (KJV)

10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly:and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

The Catholic Church leaders ignore the Church of God in the Holy Bible because God prohibited the making and worship of Idols which they are fond of!

Ephesians 4:20-25 (KJV)

20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour:for we are members one of another.

I have written previously how a priest called Abe Arganiosa licensed himself by the gossips of his proselytes to malign Bro. Eli. Now I am taking this opportunity to answer the write up  by one Sese Baluga which he posted at his blog soliciting a lecture to show the splendor of their Catholic Church. But who is Sese Baluga? They shared unbiblical opinions, so let them be.

I remembered my comment to one of his posts in Splendor:

“I am interedted (interested) to know of the current product of the ARCC, Pope Francis, his statements and how you are accepting them. Aug 19”

Priest Arganiosa soon posted his opinion why Pope Francis had that statement and kept on refuting Bro. Eli’s biblical arguments in his post The Greatest Fallacy of the Roman Catholic Church Ever and The Pope Ought to be More Biblical in His Pronouncements

Below was my comment to priest Abe Arganiosa’s post which I wrote there several times because the space to comment is limited that I tried to continue whatever is allowed to be posted to complete my comments using the websites reply option:

” Yes this kind of language is Mr. Abe Arganiosa’s forte if you try to read his earliest posts and comments. He used the verse 1 Tim 2:5 instead of Hebrew 13:8 which states

Heb 13:8-9

8 Si Jesucristo ay siya ring kahapon at ngayon, oo at magpakailan man. 9 Huwag nga kayong padala sa mga turong sarisari at di kilala: sapagka’t mabuti na ang puso ay patibayin sa pamamagitan ng biyaya; hindi sa pamamagitan ng mga pagkain, na di pinakikinabangan ng mga nagabala sa kanila.

ADB (1905)

In the bible, the apostles did not ask payments for baptism neither they baptized children, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven and they do not need to repent. If these children were not baptized and outside the Church what salvation does the ARCC offer them? Paid prayers? Who then is the charlatan when they mouth the verse but not walk it instead invent traditions!

1Co 5:13

13 Datapuwa’t sa nangasa labas ay Dios ang humahatol. Alisin nga ninyo sa inyo ang masamang tao.

ADB (1905).

Given that Priest Abe mentioned 1Ti 2:5, why not give as well the preceding verses

1Ti 2:4

4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

(KJV)

Since he mentioned 1 Tim 2:5 why not give the succeeding verses?

5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 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; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

(KJV)

I would that the readers here read as well Ms. Jane Abao’s words and weigh who really is at the side of Truth. Please read, “Bro. Eli, Pope Francis and the Squid Tactics of Roman Catholic Lackeys” and “Trembling Catholic Defender Warns Members, “Keep Away from Bro. Eli Soriano”” @ http://kotawinters.wordpress.com/

It’s already God who called them fools, those who said in their heart, there is no God. So what kind of conscience Pope Francis expects from Dr. Scalfari whom he claims a prominent atheist? He even claimed the bible is useless for a prominent atheist, but when the Pope writes or answers, does he intend for just one person or those this prominent atheist intend to convert?

The last comment went prior to Priest Abe Arganiosa or splendor1618 implores of his interest to what the present product of ARCC, Pope Francis said, and the feelings of the Catholics about it. So, here is Priest Arganiosa’s squid tactics and name calling, again. Aside from the prophet Jeremiah and Isaiah, St. Mark reiterated,

Mark 7:6-13

6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups:and many other such like things ye do. 9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. 10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death:11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. 12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered:and many such like things do ye.

(KJV)”

After which, a one Sese Baluga replied so I replied the verses from:

Daniel 12:3-4 (KJV)

3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Scatter

When this one Sese Baluga could not relate his Catholic Church to what Daniel wrote, he then deviated by rebuilding an argument how the Catholic Church is Jesus’ Church, by questioning the existense of his Catholic Church daughters and implying these and MCGI are recent Churches. Also claiming that the Catholic Church is the church being scattered by the Protestants. But what CHURCH really was established by God? Thanks be to God that Sese Baluga was forced to mention the verse 1 Corinthians 1:13:

 [“Has Christ been divided up?” 1Corinthians 1:13.]

Since he wrote it, let us read the whole Chapter lest we forget that this was written by St. Paul who also wrote the prior verses and stated the Church of God, not the Catholic Church!

 1 Corinthians 1:1-17 (KJV)

1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; 15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name. 16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas:besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel:not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

It is the Church of God being elucidated here where the divisions can be caused of many things, including the division in mind and judgment! Is it now the Pope of the Catholic Church’s responsibility to preach the Gospel to the gentiles? St. Paul said he was sent by Christ to preach the Gospel by the knowledge in Christ, which are being read and followed by Bro. Eli and the MCGI, accordingly.

What is perplexing is how priest Arganiosa selects verses from St. Paul’s writing and yet did not comprehend that Jesus Christ is the rock whom the gates of hell shall not prevails against. They believe that St. Peter is the rock, which proves that they believe in another Jesus!

2Corinthians 11:4-7 (KJV)

4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

5 For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles. 6 But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.

7 Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

(KJV)

As I have mentioned the payments you need to pay to be a Catholic. But St. Paul does the opposite. He preached the Gospel of God freely and taught the Christians to observe all things whatsoever commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ to them.

Matthew 28:19-20 (KJV)

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Saint Paul wrote to the Romans, but how come the ARCC called their church, Catholic Church? Where is the implementation of the commandments to Christians as well as the obedience in the Church of God by the Roman Catholic Church?

 1Corinthians 1:1-2 (KJV)

1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

It is very clear that Sese Baluga’s Catholic Church is not the Church of God written from the book where he got his verse to strenghten his elucidations! His selective use of the verses is self serving!

 Matthew 7:26-29 (KJV)

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell:and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Matthew 8:1 (KJV)

1 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

We are talking about the Church God has built. Can it be severed and divided by Protestantism? Or God scattered His people just like that in Babylon to escape the Catholic Church and her daughters? And later on gather them in the last days?

Sese Baluga claimed that Protestanism did the scattering of the Church. As it is the mother, the daughters did scatter. Why? The Catholic Church was built upon the sand, not Jesus Christ who is the cornerstone, the rock which the founders has rejected! The Catholic Church forefathers did not even believe St. Peter who named the stone the builders rejected.

 Acts 4:8-11 (KJV)

8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, 9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole; 10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

How dare Sese Baluga used the writings of St. Paul when his faith rejected Jesus Christ as the rock?

Matthew 21:42 (KJV)

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner:this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Saint Paul was clear about this as well:

Ephesians 2:19-22 (KJV)

19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

Sese Baluga used the definition utilized by the Anti-Christ, I would not wonder if he was referring to his Pope and seeking the “splendor” of his Catholic Church!

 Luke 4:6-8 (KJV)

6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them:for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. 8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan:for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Now what did Jesus Christ say about the deceiver who seek his own glory, like the one who seek the  the splendor of the Catholic Church instead of the owner of the Church?

 John 7:17-18 (KJV)

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. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory:but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

That is why it is important to hear and observe the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ to identify and be learned in this perilous times, when the Anti-Christs proliferate as well as they teach people to bow down on graven images and likeness they refer to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Saints, and what not.

 Isaiah 42:8 (KJV)

8 I am the Lord:that is my name:

and my glory will I not give to another,

 neither my praise to graven images.

In our present era, we will know who cleaved to the Church of God by the Church’s products.

Daniel 12:3-4 (KJV)

3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. 4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end:many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

In the Splendor, my comment remains unanswered:

“This Sese Baluga wanted to lecture me when I was referring to Priest Abe Arganiosa’s forte of writing, and the need for him to post a new one.

Now, why place a photo of free bus ride to insinuate something, when we know and has seen Bro. Eli who continues to preach around the globe, including Bible Expositions online and on television is real. We know it is his face.

But the fact the image the ARCC on this blog (Splendor) of whom they portray as Christ is nothing but one of the faces of many Catholic Christs, including the Idols and statutes, some are black, some as disfigured, and some depends on the face of others who interpreted the face on canvass, stone, wood, ceramics, calendar, plastic, etc.

Does ARCC now claim they saw the Lord Jesus Christ’s face? What was my comment that needed a lecture from this Sese Baluga?

I would that this Sese Baluga reads: “Salvation Outside the True Church” written by Bro Eli http:// (my comment was cut due to facebook limitations)

Dan 12:9-10

9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel:for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. 10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly:and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

(KJV)

Why not this Sese Baluga comment on what his Pope Francis claimed? I rather would read his feelings toward the the Pope Francis claims about Jesus written by Dr. Scalfari just like what his priest Arganiosa wrote referring to Pope Francis “the bible is useless for a prominent atheist”.

So, when Priest Arganiosa’s or splendor1618 squid tactics and name calling, again, didn’t work, he will post Sese Baluga’s lecture? What I could sum up with your lecture is, aside from what the prophet Jeremiah and Isaiah, St. Mark reiterated,

Mark 7:6-13

6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups:and many other such like things ye do. 9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition….”

If we read the verse below, we will be reminded that the Lord, seeing nothing will be restrained from the people during that time, which they have imagined to do, their language was confounded.

Genesis 11:5-9 (KJV)

5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do:and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth:and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth:and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

What is wrong with their imagination that they have to be confounded and scattered?

Genesis 11:1-4 (KJV)

1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

What else could confuse people?

Jer 10:14-15 (KJV)

14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge:every founder is confounded by the graven image:for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.

15 They are vanity, and the work of errors:

in the time of their visitation they shall perish.

As Christians, based on the Holy Scriptures, we should not submit to the vanity of Catholicism, which are the works of errors.

May I invite you to read Bro. Eli’s blogs which include http://www.esoriano.wordpress.com and http://www.elisoriano.com. You can also ask him on his twitter, http://twitter.com/BroEliSoriano and find the Holy Bible answer your deep concerns and questions in regards to your salvation.

Thanks be to God!

I am nothing.

Act 17:26-31 King James Version

26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. 30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
