The Real Truthcaster, Eliseo Soriano
The preacher who does the work nobody wants to do. He is the real Truthcaster. Hot within his bowels he has to tell the truth.
You pray to a piece of wood! he says.You pray to something crafted out of cement, and bow down to stones and call them your God! You collect tithes when you should not! You are not Israelites and these are not Mosaic times!
He is a familiar image beating one false preacher after another - exposing their deceits. And because of all these, he gets a load of enemies.
Time after time, cases are being filed against Eliseo Soriano - the man with unbounded understanding of the bible. Time after time, enemies try to twist every true data that pertains to him. And that includes twisting his name or stealing it.
But he has to go on. Somebody knows him better than the courts. Better than media, better than the Interpol. Somebody better than any power on earth.
"My God is more powerful than yours!" he would say. And on this score, he has the faith to go on preaching - for as along as God Almighty allows.
Over the years, many cases have collected to malign him - mostly arising from his work as preacher. A great many also have been the result of his excommunicating members from the fold of the Members, Church of God International where he is presiding minister. One noticeable fact is the participation of the Iglesia ni Cristo where these excommunicated members have joined after being found unacceptable anymore to Soriano's group.
A common feature of Evangelist Soriano's preaching is exposing false preachers. Among those being criticized, it is the Iglesia ni Cristo that stubbornly refuses correction.They have taken pains to humiliate Soriano by whatever method they could avail of. Maligning him through disinformation is one of the ways being resorted to especially after attempting to use the Interpol to display his name and biodata as wanted for "sex crimes."
The Iglesia ni Cristo is quite powerful in the Philippines. For its bloc voting practice, it can make and unmake a politician. Its endorsement is sought for every election time by politicians far and wide.
