More so when he gives Bible Expositions to the public that can be heard worldwide via satellite systems. In a fight therefore between the religions and the atheists, one can find Preacher Soriano with both because he draws the line. He fights the religions, just as he fights the atheists — all for truth. Either side to him has flaws.

When the evangelist says he is the most maligned preacher, it is on account of having to stand for truth that people try very hard to discredit him for making them run for their money. No one and no one had been humiliated through an Interpol Wanted scheme but Soriano. One politically influential church group had made a game out of filing Soriano case after case, making use of church members the latter had excommunicated — either as complainants or witnesses.
The local courts had declared that he is not a fugitive from justice as his enemies would want to put out. This is the work of his enemies as Wikipedia is open to public editing. Soriano happened to chide an actress atheist, Kathy Griffins, for her irresponsible words.
During an awarding inKathy remarked — A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. Suck it, Jesus, this award is my god now! First, it is noted that he quoted John W. Loftus, a leading crusader against Christianity for his definition of faith as evidence-free. Loftus had converted from Christianity to atheism. Such understanding of faith cannot stand for all times, all people, and all places according to Gilson.
Definitions are conventional, are developing through usage and have historic meanings. As such, the definition of faith involves evidence. Many Kinds of Religions Second, there are many kinds of religions. Hinduism, Buddhism, and tribal religions are called religions by some but are not typically theist.
There are important variations in religious beliefs just as there are important differences in non-belief. In fact, not all who claim Christianity can be called Christian, for example. One cannot conclude that religions calling themselves Christians accept each other as true and therefore do not disagree. This is on account of false religions existing. It is these false religions that TruthCaster Soriano is waging war on. Partly because of them, people have turned away from believing — what with their idol worship and many other false practices.
By inference, these false religions have contributed to the hatred of people on the notion of a creator because of how they unfaithfully have stood for God. In short, they had breed atheism some way, such that atheists relish laughing at God and calling him an underachiever — one whose existence they try to disprove at all costs. Naturalism is a theory denying that an event or object has supernatural significance, or is the doctrine that scientific laws are adequate to account for all phenomena.
This ism is what infidels adhere to, as declared in Infidelsdotorg that owns The Secular Web htto: A most familiar name — Richard Dawkins — is a member of the Honorary Board, as one from his country, the United Kingdom http: This organization covets the time spent by the faithful in praying which it says should be better used for gainful pursuits.
To some extent, this is true. However, to God who knows the hearts of men, payers need not be long. A true-faith believer would know God will not appreciate treating him like deaf and dumb with repetitious prayers.
But more importantly, the wrong manner of praying does not void the presence of a creator, and praying to a believer is invoking his rights for help and protection from his maker. Infidelsdotorg claims religious believers waste their money on church buildings. As explained by Infidelsdotorg, an atheist is not looking for meaning or purpose in his life, does not believe in eternal life, is not afraid of death, and if he dies, that is the end of it.
Atheists would not therefore readily turn to the teachings preached by Soriano because the Members Church of God International MCGI believes that man has to be saved from his sins, there is an eternal life, and that life has meaning and a purpose set by the Creator.
The end for man is to be glorious as his creator has set it — ruling over spirits and man that do not conform to the good and order. In the history of the MCGI where Soriano is Presiding Minister to, there were only two converts to atheism, but this was not surprising since the two were found leading licentious lives. As expected, they were excommunicated by the preacher. But notable is the fact that there have not been any liabilities to society among the MCGI members because the church looks after them.
A lot of testimonies claim their lives have changed for the better after knowing the Christ being preached by Soriano. Udyok ni Satanas or Satan-inspired. They are invariably what false religions do and they are what he often calls attention to. To name a few, they include: They only select what they teach for fear of losing members if they strictly teach all. By calling these things Satan-inspired, Soriano recognizes something that naturalism denies. But Soriano teaches that aside from matter that is admittedly living, there is something besides matter in man.
This aspect is important in considering those whose ideas become truth for most of the public, the scientists for example. Soriano goes beyond atheist scientists who do not recognize the existence of ethos as drivers of science and proponents of hypotheses. Ethos, as defined, is the distinguishing characteristic, moral nature, or guiding belief of a person, group, or institution.
A cat playing with a mouse as it dies slowly is hurting to them. There is the ethos of sympathy — for the dying mouse. What about a pupa that kicks and kicks itself to tiredness? Before a pupa becomes a beautiful butterfly, it has to kick and kick inside its cocoon to generate oil in its body. This is needed for its growth to the next phase.
Grant it sympathy and tear the cocoon and see whether it can become a butterfly that it is meant to be. There seems to me too much misery in the world. I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designed the Ichneumonidae with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of caterpillars, or that a cat should play with mice.
Not believing this, I see no necessity in the belief that they eye was expressly designed. On the other hand I cannot anyhow be contented to view this wonderful universe and especially the nature of man, and to conclude that everything is the result of brute force. I am inclined to look at everything as resulting from designed laws, with the details, whether good or bad, left to the working out of what we may call chance.
Not that this notion at all satisfies me. I feel most deeply that the whole subject is too profound for the human intellect.
A dog might as well speculate on the mind of Newton. To a believer however, there is no chance with God. He had created all things — with a purpose, from the beginning to its end. Whatever happens, God has allowed it and it is not by chance Bro. Richard Dawkins, who is looked upon by many as the successor of Darwin, made a pitch against a supposed beneficent creator, referring to the same incident that Darwin spoke of — He wrote this in his book, The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution Where reasoning is involved, there is ethos.
There is no reasoning without speech. So with two people talking about one incident, the ethos can vary. Scientific information is supposedly relayed with care, preserving the original as best as one can, cleaving to truth. Ichneumonidae refers to parasitoid wasps seen as most beautiful and most amazing by some biologists.
As implied, there is a creator who made these insects with a purpose in mind — no matter how we do not like what these insects do. Another Atheist Scientist Lawrence Krauss is on record saying God is not needed for a universe to exist.

These are the new heroes of emerging atheists today. Understandably, since communicating about existence or anything carries ethos, there is the need to be careful least one pick up the ethos of another. Ethos acts to level the playing field this way: Its English version www. It has more than 4. Print media The church distributes print and digital materials for free.
Soriano's online blogs are also compiled and printed as "The Blog Magazine". The church has also been acknowledged by the Philippine Bible Society as a regular donor and major distribution partner of Tagalog Bibles.
The church rejects the traditional doctrine of trinity mainly on its concept that there is "one God in three co-equal persons", which for them, is against the Bible. They also consider the Father is greater than Jesus Christ, the head of Christ and greater than all. He is the only savior of mankind and the only way to the kingdom of God in heaven Acts They believe that Christ descended on earth from the bosom of the Father, suffered for the redemption of sin, died on the cross, resurrected after three days, ascended to heaven and sat on the right side of God.
All church gatherings, either spiritual or socio-civic, begin and end with prayers. The church believes that it is a commandment of God to live a prayerful life based on 1 Thes 5: As a discipline, they refrain from showing the act of praying on their television broadcasts, either live or recorded, in public. However, only the audio of the community prayer is being aired, to encourage non-brethren to join and participate in praying to God, without necessarily being seen publicly.

It is where the true religion and worship is being practiced. The people of God will offer incense, not a literal incense, but "prayers" Rev 5: Prophet Isaiah mentioned about people giving glory to the Lord God of Israel in the "coastlands of the sea in the east" Revised Standard Version and "isles of the sea in the east" King James Version. They "will start from few", but God promised that "I will multiply them" and "they shall not be small".
They believe that only the church can teach the wisdom of God for the salvation of mankind citing Luke 8: They strongly believe that Christ came to the earth in many occasions already and his return will not be the "second" citing 1 Cor Those righteous who are still alive will be caught up together with the resurrected saints in the clouds, to meet Jesus Christ in the air citing 2 Thes 4: The church believes that Jesus Christ will reign with his saints for another one thousand 1, years citing Rev Satan will be imprisoned during this period.
The remaining people on earth who are still alive, those who were not caught up in the air to meet Christ, will be given a chance to salvation. After the 1,year period, another resurrection will occur. God will then judge all people, the living and the dead, according to what they have done. This will happen on God's appointed "day", the "judgment day" or the "last day" citing Acts Those who will not merit salvation will be thrown into the "lake of fire" Tagalog: After the judgment day will be the earth's destruction.
