Eliseo F. Soriano
...FALSE PROPHET EXPOSED!
Matthew 7:15 and 24:11, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. ...And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”
John 12:43, “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.”
It is heartbreaking to see thousands of people being indoctrinated with the lies of Satan, drawn away from the Lord Jesus Christ by a wayward false prophet. Filipino people are sweet, hardworking and trusting, and are easily preyed upon by religious charlatans and conmen. Eliseo F. Soriano is a false prophet who teaches a false plan of salvation. According to Mr. Soriano, faith in the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is insufficient to save a person; but in addition, Soriano and his cult followers teach that keeping all of God's commandments are required for salvation. This is known as the heresy of “works-salvation.”
Soriano plainly alleges that Jesus is not God...
“The Jesus and Christ of the Bible is not God the Father.”

The Bible calls Soriano a liar. In Isaiah 9:6 we read a prophecy concerning the Messiah...
Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

The Virgin Birth And The Incarnation (by Dr. Arthur C. Custance)
We are taught in the Bible that the Godhead dwelt wholly in the body (flesh) of the Lord Jesus Christ...
Colossians 2:9, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
In Jesus, the Godhead became incarnate. John 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Amen! Although God the Father, God the Spirit and God the Son are three separate individuals, they are also one in the same in the Godhead. 1st John 5:7,“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one” (King James Bible).
By the way, 1st John 5:7 has been butchered and removed from most modern Bibles, because Satan is trying to take away our Bible. The Textus Receptus (or Received Greek) from which our beloved King James Bible was translated contains 1st John 5:7. Amen and amen! God has kept His promise in Psalm 12:6-8 to preserve His Words unto every generation. Here's a helpful chart showing the origin of our modern Bibles.
More About False Prophet Eliseo Soriano
I'm not trying to be unkind, but a false prophet is a false prophet, especially if he has a voice to millions of people. The Filipino people are ripe unto the harvest to be saved with the Gospel, and the need is very great for Christian missionaries there who are Biblically sound in the faith. It is sad that Roman Catholicism and wolves in sheep's clothing like Soriano are afflicting the people with Satanic doctrines of devils. Jesus said that except a man be born-again he cannot enter into the kingdom of God (John 3:5-7).
Soriano is an extremely popular religious teacher throughout the Philippine islands (and around the world on radio). I am not questioning Soriano's sincerity, for that is between him and God; but I do know that the Bible teaches Jesus is almighty God. Anyone who denies the deity of Jesus Christ is not saved, for it is one of the most fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith.
Here's some basic biographical information as quoted word-for-word from WIKIPEDIA.COM...
Eliseo Fernando "Bro. Eli" Soriano (born April 4, 1947) is a Filipino televangelist. He is the current Presiding Minister of the Philippines-based Christian organization Members Church of God International, colloquially known through its radio and television program Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path, Portuguese: O Caminho Antigo, Spanish: El Camino Antiguo). His radio and television program is considered the longest-running religious program in the Philippines.
Soriano is known for his signature method of "Bible Expositions". This live event adopts the symposium format where guests and visitors get the chance to ask Soriano with their questions personally or by live video streaming. In some occasions, he "exposes" the doctrinal errors of various other religious groups. An incident when he used a defamatory word in his television show consequently led to a three month suspension of the program in a case that went to the Supreme Court of the Philippines.

Eliseo Soriano Corrupts The Gospel Message
The following information is from Soriano's church website. Here Soriano errantly teaches that works are required for salvation. According to Soriano's doctrine, a person's sins can hinder them from going to Heaven, regardless of any faith they may have in the Lord Jesus Christ. Soriano says works must be included for salvation and refers to Baptists as producing children of Hell. Well, I'm a Baptist and I resent some fake preacher accusing me and my brethren of producing children of Hell.
The truth is that Eliseo Soriano is a two-fold child of the Devil, once because he is not saved, and twice because he is conceited in his false views. Proverb 26:12, “Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.” I didn't say that, God did! That is, God says there's more hope of a fool getting saved than a conceited man who is filled with arrogance and sinful pride which has blinded that man to the truth of God's Word. The hardest part about getting religious people saved is first getting them lost! ...
“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.”
This is the verse most misinterpreted by Baptists and (allegedly) Born Again preachers! They teach that obedience to the commandments is not necessary for salvation, followed by a blatant misconception that if you are of Christ whatever happens and whatever you may do, even to the extent of sinning grave sins, will not affect your salvation!
All these misinterpretations and misconceptions sum up to a satanic process of producing children of hell!
SOURCE: Eli Soriano - Producing Some Children of Hell
Here once again, Soriano perverts the meaning of the Scriptures. Soriano is woefully ignorant concerning the grace and mercy of God. Biblical salvation is a free gift that is rooted in God's unconditional love for mankind (which sent Christ to the cross to bleed and die for OUR SINS). We don't deserve eternal life. We can't earn it! Eternal life is ours simply for the taking, by faith, and only by faith in the precious name of Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God.
Mr. Soriano is wrong! Perhaps sincere, but nevertheless wrong. Eli Soriano is working for the Devil by teaching a false plan of salvation. As we read in our text verse at the beginning of this article, Jesus warned about wolves who would come to us disguised in sheep's clothing. Soriano has convinced many people that he is a true Christian, yet he is clearly of the Devil because Soriano denies Christ's deity, rejects the Godhead and denies salvation by grace through faith in Christ. The Bible commissions every Believer to expose false prophets.
Titus 1:10-13, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.”
Soriano Denies The Deity Of Jesus Christ!
Eliseo Soriano also openly denies Christ's deity and the Godhead. One of the most hated doctrines of the Bible is Jesus' claim to deity, that is, that Jesus walked this earth as God in the flesh. Eliseo F. Soriano is a false prophet who teaches a false plan of salvation. According to Mr. Soriano, faith in the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ is insufficient to save a person; but in addition, Soriano and his cult teach that keeping all of God's commandments are required for salvation.
Just as the Jehovah's Witnesses, Soriano openly teaches the damnable heresy that Jesus is a mighty God, but not Almighty God. Here is what Soriano teaches...
“The Jesus and Christ of the Bible is not God the Father...
Bro. Eliseo F. Soriano
...The interest of many people in our society is focused only on the material and physical matters. Many seem to have neglected and forgotten matters that pertain to salvation. Although there are some who talk about God and salvation, the fact remains that the greater number of our people are preoccupied on worldly things and other forms of wickedness. While the number of religious organizations increases, the rate of criminality and other heinous acts likewise increase. This study aims to bring to light the fundamental doctrines of God, and how we can find peace of mind especially in this times when wickedness is all around us.
This is our invitation to you. Most of the Born Again Christian groups, particularly the so-called “Onenessgroup” teach that Christ is also the Father, and they use John 10:30 as their basis. The verse says, “I and my Father are one.” Simply because they read Jesus saying, “I and my Father are one”, they already concluded that Christ is also the Father. But if we are going to ask the Bible, we will find out that this is an incorrect interpretation. The Jesus and Christ of the Bible is not God the Father." [emphasis added]
Blasphemy! The Word of God is abundantly clear that the Godhead became incarnate in the earthly body of the Lord Jesus Christ. We read in Colossians 2:9, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Soriano corrupts the Scriptures through his woeful ignorance. We also read in John 10:33, "The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, MAKEST THYSELF GOD." Who would dare say that Jesus didn't profess to be Almighty God. In Revelation 1:8 Jesus even claims to be GOD ALMIGHTY, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, THE ALMIGHTY.” Oh, listen my friend, Jesus accepted worship as only God is entitled to (Matthew 8:2; Isaiah 42:8). Jesus forgave sin as only God is able to do (Mark 2:5-7; Luke 5:21).
Jesus performed miracles, even healing amputees (like when Peter cut the servant's ear off and the Lord restored it). Jesus performed miracles which no man has ever done before nor since. “If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father” (John 15:24). Only Jesus can make the lame to walk, and the blind to see, and the deaf to Hear, and the amputees to have their limbs and function restored. This is one way that we know Jesus is truly the Son of the living God and the Christ.
These frauds today like Benny Hinn, Peter Popoff, Mike Murdock and Pat Robertson cannot heal anyone; yet they make hundreds-of-millions of dollars by exploiting people's hopes of being healed from their illnesses and disabilities. 2nd Peter 2:1-3 tells us “their damnation slumbereth not,” that is, they're already damned... it's just a matter of time until Hell comes to get them, just as the Bible warns the wicked in Isaiah 14:9, “Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.”
Soriano's Dangerous, Unbiblical, False Cult Teachings
Eliseo Soriano is a false prophet who teaches Satanic lies...
- Soriano rejects the Godhead (Trinity) doctrine (i.e., the Godhead) and believes the following:
- Father - Almighty God and over-all Savior. Greater than the Son and the Spirit.
- Son - Mighty God but not the Almighty God like His Father. He is equal to the Father as God but not greater than the Father because He was sent. Greater than the Holy Spirit.
- Holy Spirit - part of the Father and the Son and also called God but not a Person. Aside from believing these “three Gods,” he also insists that there exist “many gods” because of 1 Corinthians 8:5.
- Soriano believes the Father, who is the Living God, was the overall Savior who must be given credit for all the things. He has done by sending saviors during the times past (Hebrews 1:1-2).
- Soriano believes Jesus is a "Mighty God" but not the Almighty God. Soriano does not believe that Jesus is the only Savior of humanity. Soriano teaches two kinds of salvation that Jesus will do: (1) He was sent primarily to be the savior of the house of Israel (Matthew 15:24) during his humanity (Matthew 1:21), but he is just one among the sent ones to be the savior. (2) On his Second Coming, he will save the faithful (i.e., members of Soriano’s group). Soriano teaches that Moses was also sent by the Father to become an instrument of salvation and savior to the Israelites (Acts 7:35-37), and the Apostle Paul (Acts 13:46-47) was a savior to the Gentiles up to the ends of the earth. According to Soriano, Timothy was to be the next savior after the apostle Paul’s death.
- According to Soriano, Jesus the Son of the Living God also needs a savior who is his Father, the Living God as allegedly stated in Hebrews 5:7-9.
- According to Soriano, the meaning of the “house of God” in Psalms 127:1 during the Old Testament is “Church of God” (Iglesia ng Dios), and the name of that church is: Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohanan (Church of God in Christ Jesus. The pillar and the ground of the truth. Philippines). They do believe that a person may be saved even though he has not heard of Soriano’s teachings. He is judged by God according to his conscience. Soriano believes not everybody can preach the Bible, but must therefore be a “sent one” (who is none other than the founder, himself).
Christian pastors and leaders who are concerned about the spiritual welfare of the Filipinos must be vigilant to expose this cult, so that they can address the spiritual hunger of a growing population. It is our responsibility as genuine born-again Christians to WARN Filipinos about false teachers like Soriano, Apollo C. Quiboloy and "Brother Eddie" C. Villanueva, who come as wolves in sheep's clothing (Matthew 7:15). These men pervert the Word of God and deceive Filipinos.
AuthorityAlthough ADD members claim to believe the Bible as their only source of authority, this is half-true. They also believe Eliseo Soriano is the “sent one” or “sugo” the reason why he alone does the Bible explaining. In other words, an individual member could not just explain the Bible out of his own personal study. This can be observed by watching his TV program, “Ang Dating Daan,” and “Itanong Mo Kay Soriano” a bible exposé program wherein he is always the main speaker concerning Bible interpretations. I have also talked to many ADD regulars (i.e. manggagawa) and tried to ask them some Bible questions but they declined and directed me instead to their founder.
Bizarre And Unscriptural Teachings...
- Teaches God of not capable of doing everything (i.e., omnipotent).
- Eli Soriano teaches that God doesn't know everything.
- Teaches God of not present everywhere (i.e., omniscient).
- Teaches that God is not alone in being God.
- Eli Soriano introduces himself as a god.
- Christ as the Saviour of men was not an original plan of the Father; but rather, a voluntary gesture or self-will of the Son after a supposed “caucus in heaven took place involving the three, i.e., God the Father, Son, and the Holy spirit.
- Teaches Christ of being sinful at one time.
- Teaches the Apostles of being prone to error when teaching the Gospel; yet Soriano claims he can answer any question.
- Believes there is only one Apostle with the name of James, instead of two as described in the Bible.
- Ladies are not created in the image of God but only men.
- Ladies will not enter Heaven unless she becomes a man, and a man a god.
- Personal insults, badmouthing and any other form of human degradation to fellow men is freely practiced and encourages at anytime, even during their worship service, just as long as it is what they personally think of that person, young or old alike.
- At one point he forbade his members to marry (see 1st Timothy 4:1-3).
- Practices speaking to the dead as well as spoke with God.
Beware Of Eliseo Soriano's Religious Cult
Eli Soriano is an imposter. Just as the Catholic Church (which Soriano criticizes), so also is Soriano's teachings straight out of the pits of Hell. Just as the Jehovah Witnesses cult, Soriano denies that Jesus is Almighty God. Instead, he teaches that Jesus is only a god, but not THE GOD. Soriano denies the Savior, teaching that only members of his religious group will be saved at the Second Coming. So anyone else outside of his group believes the Gospel, they are out of luck. Soriano denies the Godhead.
Tragically, I have read many words of praise towards Mr. Soriano from online forums, i.e., from deceived victims. This is why Jesus commanded for believers to SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES (John 5:39), instead of listening to a man. Eli Soriano is leading multitudes of people into Hell, fire and damnation. The Filipino people in particular are falling victim to demonic deception, because they are sweet people and trusting of others who are kind and nice. This is their greatest downfall. Sadly, the average Filipino is woefully ignorant of the Bible, God's Word, because the Catholic Church discourages people from studying the truth in the Bible.
I recently conversed with an unsaved Roman Catholic Filipina woman who spoke high praises of Benny Hinn, a damnable false prophet who speaks LIES. Woe unto the naive, for the Devil wants to kill, steal and destroy your family. Romans 3:4 plainly warns... “Let God be true, but every man a liar...” I explained to the woman that Benny Hinn was an imposter and a liar. Benny Hinn is also a Catholic. She sincerely said, “Whatever the Bible says, that's what I believe.” Since she is Catholic, and said she believed the Bible, I gave a her a book to read titled Understanding Roman Catholicism by Rick Jones, who uses the Bible to expose the damnable lies of the Catholic religion. So many people today, especially the Filipino people, have been deceived by the lies of Catholicism and other heretics like Benny Hinn and Eli Soriano.
The problem is that people “say” they believe the Bible; but then don't study the Bible at all. The average person doesn't know anything about the Bible, except what they've been taught by MAN. You need to read the Word of God for yourself. Get you a King James Bible (all other modern Bible versions are corrupt). Only read and study the King James Bible. That's the only Bible I'll ever use. I don't even use the other versions for comparison and study. They're too polluted with lies. Get you a King James Bible (and not the New King James version either, it's corrupt too). The Bible is not a version, it's God's Word. God only wrote one Book!
Listen to what Jesus said in John 5:19... SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES! Have you searched the Scriptures? No, you just like Eli Soriano and believe what he says, because he seems like a nice person and mentions the name of Jesus. Woe unto the ignorant! Don't trust your soul to someone just because they smile and seem like a nice person. You obey the Word of God. Jeremiah 17:5, “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15).
