QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path), the longest running religious program in the Philippines, celebrated its 34th anniversary through orderly Worldwide Bible Exposition on October 30, 2014 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
The no-cause-heavy-traffic event of the Ang Dating Daan reflects the discipline taught to the Members Church of God International (MCGI). Unlike other religious groups who play with city traffic resulting to congestion in different parts of the country (especially in Mega Manila by blocking driveways whenever they have “celebrations”), the MCGI celebrates peacefully without giving worries and difficulties to other people. Although MCGI, led by Bro. Eli Soriano (MCGI – Presiding Minister) and Bro. Daniel Razon (MCGI – Vice-Presiding Minister), has various everyday public services here and abroad, never did they cause any trouble or distress to the public. And that shows the kind of discipline the Members Church of God International maintains and practices.
“Kasi ayaw naman nating gumaya roon sa mga nag-ca-cause ng trapik.. ayaw naman nating mamerwisyo ng ganun mga kapatid. Ang sa atin po ay gusto nating magawa yung ating mga obligasyon but at the same time ay ma-maintain natin na tayo ay makipagpayapaan sa lahat at tayo po ay mabuhay ng mayroong kapayapaan at hindi tayo nagiging cause.. at hindi tayo nagiging dahilan o maging liability ng atin pong lipunan, kundi sa tulong at awa ng Panginoon ay makilala ang ating pagsasama-sama bilang isang samahan na masikap sa mabubuting gawa. Yan ang itinuturo sa atin mga kapatid,” said Bro. Daniel Razon, Vice Presiding Minister to the MCGI, during the Thanksgiving.
Ang Dating Daan Worldwide Bible Exposition
The highlight of the 34th anniversary celebration of the Ang Dating Daan was the question and answer portion, a program which is popularly known as “Itanong Mo Kay Soriano, Biblia Ang Sasagot.” Through Itanong Mo Kay Soriano’s program, visitors from various religious denominations from different parts of the world were given the chance to ask spiritual questions and obtain answers based on the Bible answered Bro. Eli Soriano.
Soriano is indeed the only religious preacher in our time who is able and more willing to answer all questions purely from the Bible and had satisfied every person who seeks answers from the scriptures. Evidently, even those who came from different country are thirsty and hungry to his biblical knowledge, a God-given knowledge and wisdom of the scriptures. Despite having their own pastor in their religion, still, they have chosen and trusted Bro. Eli as the one who can answer and resolve their biblical queries.
Here are the testimonies of some people who have enlightened and seen hope to Bro. Eli’s preaching:
