Religion in the Philippines is marked by a majority of people being adherents of the Christian It is particularly strong among American and Korean communities, Northern Luzon . Less than half of which still practice indigenous religions which have been used prior . Scholars date it to the late 13th or early 14th century. Eli soriano of the church's beliefs and the identity of schools are interested in religious beliefs and corruption in indian dating daan ay istorya sin daan.
Mind control and mental illness Mind control is a prevalent practice in the Ang Dating Daan. Followers are not supposed to reason on their own. You will also be expected to save as much time as possible to attend indoctrination services at the ADD Coordinating centers to listen to Soriano because the world might end soon and you might lose your salvation while engaged in worldly things. Yes, slavishly devoting their lives to a cult that cares more for their own financial gain than the mental welfare of their loyal followers is something which should enter the minds of ADD members as enforced by the Ang Dating Daan.
Hatred Hatred and religious attacks are an enforced policy in the Ang Dating Daan. You will be expected to hate and loathe those who criticize or expose Soriano and the Ang Dating Daan for being false prophets. Soriano and other ADD leaders will direct you to abuse, loathe, curse and intentionally harass them. If you happen to leave the ADD cult, you will experience the same treatment.

Their Trinity is a different Trinity. According to Brother Eli F. Soriano, Christ has a lower rank than His Father, and therefore is a lesser God. All organization requires position: In the military, each soldier is not the same rank. Some, with more responsibility are officers, while others with less responsibility are enlisted men. These ranks are needed so that individuals with specialized offices or responsibilities can function as a team.
But this does not mean that a Corporal is any less human than the General. Both the General and the Corporal are both fully human. Rank, responsibility, or office has nothing to do with the essence or nature of a person. In our last lesson in Major Doctrines of the Faith, we will see that Christ, as well as the Holy Spirit, are fully God in their Divine nature and essence, based upon their attributes which prove them to be fully God.
Christ is not a personal saviour. But according to Bro. Soriano, Christ is NOT a personal savior and does not save this way. Instead, Christ saves His Church, and the only way you can be saved is by being a member of this church. He bases this on Eph. This is also a text used by INC.
Bible teaches calling only: Many verses teach that a person can be saved by calling upon the Lord for salvation: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
There is nothing here on calling upon Christ through the church to be saved. The NT order has always been, to personally receive Him as savior, and then to publicly demonstrate it through baptism.
Repent and be baptized ACTS 2: If thou believest with all thine heart, they mayest [be baptized] ACTS Saviour of the body: It can also be referring to the church as the full body of believers who have been born of the spirit. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. A believer can go to hell!
