The first part of this interesting question of faith — Can the Bible be a tool to prove that God exists? Is there anyone who has measured the distance between the heavens and the earth?
Is there anyone who has measured the distance between the heavens and the earth?
On April 7, 1964, three days after his 17th birthday, Eliseo was baptised in Seneguelasan, Bacoor, Cavite, and became an official member of the Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Suhay ng Katotohanan (Church of God in Christ Jesus, Pillar and Support of the Truth in English) founded by Nicolas Perez where his parents were also members.
In 1969, Nicolas Antiporda Perez, who was then the church's presiding minister, bestowed upon Soriano the title minister making him the only minister in the Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Suhay ng Katotohanan at that time.
Rumors were circulating that Soriano is going to be Perez's successor.
However, after the death of Nicolas Perez in 1975, Levita Gugulan was appointed as temporary Presiding General Secretary of the group.
He is the current "Overall Servant" (Tagalog: Lingkod Pangkalahatan) and de facto 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.
Soriano initially accepted the appointment of Gugulan but subsequently denounced her leadership stating that women should not be leaders of the church according to the Bible.
