Why Doesn’t God Just Create Robots?

(featured image courtesy of Welt)

I’ve been thinking about this topic for several days now because I wanted to make it different. I didn’t want to just write about the present Church of Christ (Iglesia Ni Cristo) Administration and some of their horrid actions. This is more of an explanation about the Church I came to know and love. This is about what I was taught on how and why we should worship God.

Have you ever wondered why God created us the way He did? No, I’m not talking about our individual odd features like freckles or having wavy hair. I’m talking about why God made us weak and fallible being able to decide things with our own will. The Bible tells us we were created to serve Him:

“Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God.It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture”. Psalm 100:2-3

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

We were created to praise and worship God. But not any kind of worship. It should be done joyfully and with gladness. Keep this in mind. This will be the main issue today.

Unfortunately, man is fallible and committed sin. From Adam to the present day, man is still weak. Anyone acceptable? Nope:

” As the Scriptures say:“There is no one who is righteous, no one who is wise or who worships God. All have turned away from God; they have all gone wrong; no one does what is right, not even one”. Romans 3:10-12

The question then becomes, why doesn’t God create beings that are perfect? He did. Here’s what happened:

You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.”

“You were anointed as a guardian cherub, and so I ordained you.

You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.

 You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you”. Ezekiel 28:12, 14-15

The anointed cherub, the morning star, Lucifer himself was created by God. But because of his beauty and wisdom, he exalted himself and wanted to be like God. God doesn’t want us to be like that.

So if God wants His creations to worship Him why not just make automatons who merely exist automatically praising, bowing, kneeling and serving God? Robots, in other words. Nope. He prefers us to have free will. He allows us to make the choices.

“I am now giving you the choice between life and death, between God’s blessing and God’s curse, and I call heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Choose life.” Deuteronomy 30:19

So with the freedom to make choices, what should mankind learn when it comes to our service to God? Apostle Paul wrote this:

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Paul taught that even if we have faith, even if we can do great, ‘amazing‘ things, (even record breaking feats) 🙂 or even do immense works of charity, giving  (lots and lots of goody bags) to the poor, but if it’s not out of love, it’s all meaningless.

So bottom line? God wants us to have LOVE.

How does one show that love?

“In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome”. 1 John 5:3

What does it mean to love God is to keep his commands? It doesn’t mean that just because we gave to poor people that we already love God. It is when we are living by His commands even if there is nothing to gain. True obedience is when we follow God’s words not because we have to but because we want to. That’s what I was referring to in the beginning. We worship and we serve, not because we must or for fear of punishment, but because we choose to. THAT is serving with gladness. NO ONE has to threaten us or frighten us with expulsion or eternal punishment – – Worship done out of love and joy.

Let’s take a very concrete example. Most people work because they have to put food on the table and pay the bills right? Have you ever heard some people say that they have their “Dream job”? They love the work that they do AND they get paid for it. In other words, they are doing what they want to do, and being paid is just an added benefit.

So if we truly want to worship God, we would do it willingly and joyfully, not because we just want to reap the rewards or to avoid punishment, it’s something in us that says, we want to. We ought to.

What is my point? Actually I partially mentioned it already.  There is no need to harass us to “obey our Beloved Leader”, or “we’d better obey or we will be expelled” and thus suffer eternal condemnation.  THINK ABOUT IT. Is that the kind of worship God wants from us? Simply because we don’t want punishment? Put in other terms: “I’ll worship you. Just please don’t hurt me”.  Is that sincere love?

Let’s take another example. There is a term called “shotgun wedding“. I asked my life partner if there’s an equivalent in Filipino; I am told it is “Pikot”. Whichever one you understand. For clarity, the term refers to a time when (especially in the olden days) when a man was “forced” to marry a girl because perhaps he “dishonoured” her in some way. The father would threaten to use the literal shotgun to pressure the young man to marry the daughter – hence the term shotgun wedding. I have no idea what the origin of Pikot is. But you get the point. Anyway, I am mentioning this because, it feels like these days that the  marriage of Christ to the Church has become like a shotgun wedding. We are being pressured and pushed into action. Is this the true relationship that would please God? Would God be truly glorified when He can see that the people are only worshipping Him to avoid pain and punishment? Certainly not! That would just be selfishness wouldn’t it? What does the Bible say?

“My people come to you, as they usually do, and sit before you to hear your words, but they do not put them into practice. Their mouths speak of love, but their hearts are greedy for unjust gain.”Ezekiel 33:31

God does not want worship that is fake or just lip service. What kind of Christians are being created now if all we are here for are the benefits or to avoid pain? True love of God is when we obey because we want to. So does it make sense that Ministers threaten Church Officials with suspensions and writing affidavits if they don’t attend vow prayers or nightly bible studies? Should these not be VOLUNTARY? And while I’m asking, shouldn’t OFFERINGS be also voluntary? If the answer is YES, then why is one now labeled a DEFENDER or a REBEL if he or she is unable to donate for Africa or for the District Fund?

I remember a minister asked us if we would still serve God even if there was no Holy City. Would we still worship if there were was no salvation, no eternal life; what if there was no heaven? I suddenly thought of John Lennon’s Imagine; “Imagine there’s no heaven and no religion too”. So, the question for us is, would we still love God?

That, my friends, is when we will see those who are true. As they say, no strings attached.


1 Corinthians 13:8-13

“Prophecy and speaking in unknown languages and special knowledge will become useless. But love will last forever!Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! 10 But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless.

11 When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. 12 Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

13 Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

  1. It’s really a nice Topic Bro. Actually I don’t remember when. I and ka Tacio “exchanged views” about your article. Allow me to write it in pilipino ‘coz I will have a hard time to write or rewrite it again if it’s in english. And I don’t remember too kung dito sa site mo o sa site ni ka WS kami nagpalitan ng comment ukol sa sulat mong ito ngayon.
    Ganito ang pasimula ko noon kung di ako ngakakamali: Ito tanong ko,maglilingkod ka ba sa Dios dahil may Gantimpalang KAPALIT at kung wala,maglilingkod ka pa? Sa akin ito ang isinulat ko: Habang “tumatagal ako sa Iglesia,nag-iisip na ako noon,kaya ba ako sumasamba at naglilingkod dahil Takot akong maparusahan sa DDA o dahil Gusto kong maligtas at makarating sa Bayang
    Banal? Unti-unti ito ang naging konklusyon ko: Parehong mali ang mga Naisip kong ito.!!
    Ang Tiniyak ko na sa sarili ko ay: DIOS ang LUMALANG sa akin,may buahy ako at lakas dahil sa KANYA. Lahat ng pangangailangan ko Binibigay NIYA,Inilalayo ako sa kapahamakan at mga karamdaman.Itong mga bagay na ITO ay wala ng Katumbas sa lahat ng Kabutihan at Kagandahang-loob ng Dios.
    Kaya ang naging Pasya ko ay ito: Sa Parusahan ako o Iligtas ako ng Dios,kahit “walang kapalit na ano pa man” Sasambahin at Paglilingkuran ko SIYA sa abot ng Aking Makakaya.!!! Sa Araw ng Paghuhukom,buhayin Niya ako at parusahan,okey lang!! Hindi na NIYA ako Buhayin,Okey lang!!Buhayin Niya ako at tanggapin sa kaharian Niya,maraming Salamat.!! Ito lang ang masasabi ko at NAIPASYA ko na IYAN noon pa mang Bulay-bulayin ko kung bakit ako NILALANG ng Ating DIOS na Makapangyarihan sa lahat.!!!
    Tunay na NILALANG tayo ng Dios para SIYA Sambahin at Paglingkuran UDYOK ng Pag-ibig,Masaya,Banal na Takot at tunay na Bukal sa ating kalooban,puso,kaluluwa ,lakas at pag-iisip.!!! May damdamin na di katulad ng Robot o laruan na de baterya,HIGIT sa LAHAT “hindi TINAKOT o Natatakot o may BANTA sa iyo kaya dapat kang Sumunod!!!


  2. Ka PDC yung sagot ko sa iyo o hiling mong leksyon ukol sa “pangangalakal sa Kaluluwa” ay naroon sa nakaraang article.Tama ka,Kinakalakal o ibinebenta na ang kaluluwa ng mga kapatid pagdating ng Halalan na ayon sa iyo ay nakukuha na sa SUHOL.Binebenta na ang BOTO mo ng mga magagaling na LIDER at mga DM!!

  3. Thank you for again sharing your wonderful thoughts with us. I am particularly touched by that minister’s question as to whether we will still serve God if there is no promise of the Holy City. It so happened that I had thought about that many years ago and in fact, I think I have shared my sentiments in some of my social media postings somewhere (such as what Bro. Bibliko recalls) that, prior to EVM’s ascension to the position of TP, I felt so blessed and contented (spiritually and materially) with what God had already done for me that, in gratitude, I had decided to spend the rest of my life serving Him even without the promise of salvation or the Holy City. In other words, I considered the latter to be a mere bonus because after overcoming severe trials through God’s unmistakable love while inside His true church, I felt as if I no longer had anything more to ask from Him except to allow me to serve Him in the highest form I had managed to attain. I had felt the Holy Spirit constantly in the worship services and in my own personal life that there was not a tinge of doubt in my heart and mind that I was in the true church and my services were acceptable to God. But now, the present crisis in the INC, centered primarily on EVM’s questionable leadership and behavior, has brought tremendous anguish and confusion to my soul. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that the INC that I loved and revered would be transformed to what it is today under EVM’s leadership. Hence, despite my active participation in sharing experiences and ideas in public forums such as this, albeit anonymously, I have never lost track of my primary concern and now a very big and serious challenge, i.e., how to fulfill my vow of serving God for the rest of my life. Sadly, I grieve for the precipitous drop in the quality of service that I am now able to render to Him. And I am sorry to say that I am no longer as confident as before that I am ready to face death or the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. More than ever, I need God’s mercy and help to guide me in my life choices


    1. INC members (and this includes defenders) might be too complacent. The reality of the Bible is that in Rev 7:4 a specific number are sealed (144,000). Also in Rev 20:4-6 the first resurrection is martyrs (those who were persecuted or murdered).
      The Seattle arson attack that occurred the Thur before the Philadelphia synagogue shooting is evidence we need not to let our guard down.

      There is also the Great Tribulation (Matt 24:21, Dan 12:11) and Rev 7:14-17 mentions the survivors.

      Our faith just might be tested to the point of death.


  4. Ka Tacio and Bros.,basta maghintay lang tayo at magtiyaga,sumasamplataya ako na di magtatagal ay AAYUSIN ng Ama ang lahat ng kaguluhang Nilikha nila EVM.Pagdating o pagsapit ng ARAW na iyon,muling manunumbalik ang Hinahangad nating Mapayapa,Masaya at Maayos na mga pagsamba upang Muli nating Madama ang pag-ibig,awa,pagmamahal at pagkukupkop ng Dios at Cristo sa ating mga kaluluwang sabik na sabik na maranasan natin ang Ama,Cristo at E.Santo sa ating mga buhay–damdamin,puso at kaluluwa.!! Tiis at tiaga lang mga Bro.darating tayo jan sa bahaging iyan ng ating pagka-Iglesia ni Cristo.


  5. BREAKING NEWS,! http://winnipegsun.com/news/local-news/terrible-stain-cbc-sued-by-church-over-fifth-estate-story. Big mistake! They think Canada is like the Philippines where they have strong connections with the government and the courts. Another unnecessary show of force that will boomerang on the INC. Unlike the Catholic church which started to clean its mess, apologize and make restitutions, INC sticks to its mantra that EVM can do no wrong and hence, will further stain its name!


    1. Super minion Edwin V Embry is self-gratifying himself because 2nd District Court dismissed the Chris Brown case. It is a technicality because International civil cases are difficult. Also overjoyed about the Fifth Estate being sued. Wishing bad luck is a sin.

      Job 31:29-30 If I rejoice at the destruction of him that hated me, or lifted up myself when evil found him: Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse to his soul.


      1. The reason why the appeal was dismissed was THEY DIDNT PAY THE FILING FEE. It wasn’t the merit. Mr Embry is gloating because of someone’s negligence.


      1. The INC has already lost two frivolous cases in California:
        1. Restraining order against Liezl Deocampo by Virginio Ramil. Latter ordered to pay lawyer fees.
        2. Libel suit against Isaias Samson by Reggie Delos Reyes. Dismissed with an anti-SLAPP motion.

        Libel suit thrown out against Vincent Florida.

        Libel case thrown out against Canono.

        Oh yes…. Mr Embry, please stop your legalism mumbo jumbo about ordained ministers. It is not that hard to get a “Reverend” card in the US; furthermore, expelled ministers are still licensed by the state to legally perform marriages. Prayer groups are not illegal.

        Ask yourself why Menorca and Canono are in Canada and not dead or rotting in jail. Also ask yourself why an arson attack occurred on Seattle the Thursday before the synagogue shooting.

        Defamation lawsuits are often frivolous.


  6. The Catholic Church is correcting its mistakes. The Jehovah’s Witnesses have been exposed seriously about hiding child molestation by elders and have had two exposes on A & E. There is a class action suit in Canada for $66M. The lawsuits could hit $200M. They have been investigated in Australia (Australian Commission) and are under it for 1700 cases of child molestation not reported to police.



  7. To make the matter worst, palagi nalang ikinakabit ng mga ministro sa tuwing mababangit ang tungkol sa handugan sa mga biyayang material na magiiging kapalit ng paghahandog ng malaki. Kaya madami mga kapatid ngayun ang naghahandog para lang magkabiyaya ng malaki..parang investment ang tingin nila. Eto na ang pangunahing dahilan at hindi na ang papurihan ang Ama. Mahigpit ngayun ang kampanya sa bawat lokal para sa Sa april 27/28 na handugan na ngayun lang daw magaganap sa tanang buhay ng mga INC. Bawat lokal ay my target na halaga. Bawat kapatid ay hahanapan ng target.. kawawa na naman ang pamunuan kasi sila ang unang unang momolestyahin ng mga tagapangasiwa ng distrito na maghandog ng ubos biyaya.


  8. Yep nabalitaan ko nga “gagamitin na naman” ng abuloy para kuno idemenda ang CBC.Ok yan ng magkaharapan ng husto at maglabasan ng mga Ebedensya. Magkaalaman na kung Sino talaga ang Sinungaling.Di ko maubos maisip na ang mga “kapatid” ay para ng mga Protestante na “nahihikayat sa Prosperity gospel na pambulag ng OWE church para sumunod sa gusto nila na magbigay ka ng malaki,para ka pagpalain ng Dios.!! Limot na talaga o walang alam sa aral sa abuluyan na “magbigay ang bawa’t ISA ayon sa pasya ng iyong puso.huag mabigat sa loob o dahil sa kailangan”. Ewan,bulag na bulag at panatiko na ang marami sa mga member,kaya papaano pa mare-restore iyang Iglesia? Kaya dapat Umalis o Iwan mo na sila EVM n Companies.!! Yep,ang tagal ko na sa Iglesia ngayon lang ako nakarinig ng TANGGING HANDUGAN sa o Ukol sa PAMAMAHAYAG!!! Kailan at saan sa Biblia ng mangaral ang Cristo at mga Apostol ay “naghandugan ng pera’ para magmisyon?? Walang KASIYAHAN ang mga IYAN,sobra na ang Katakawan sa SALAPI.!!!Lahat na HINDI ginawa ng Sugo at ka EGM na labag sa Biblia PINAGGAGAWA ng mga Ganid na iyan.!!!


  9. Hey Embry….. since you like to read my comments, read this:

    Revelation 7:2-4 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

    Revelation 20:4-5 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

    What are you doing reading apostate material?

    The train is coming and you’re on the tracks, butthead!


  10. At ginaganit na ngayun ang talatang malakias 3:10 na para sa ikapu. Eto nakasulat

    10 Dalhin ninyo nang buong-buo ang inyong mga ikasampung bahagi sa tahanan ng Diyos upang matugunan ang pangangailangan sa aking tahanan. Subukin ninyo ako sa bagay na ito, kung hindi ko buksan ang mga bintana ng langit at ibuhos sa inyo ang masaganang pagpapala.

    Yung last sentence lang pinaka diindiinan nila para ka magbigay mg malaki..twisted na twisted ang mga salita ng Dios sa mga taong eto.


  11. Ang may deperensya ka PDC ay ang mga bulag na miembro,Dapat alam nila na sa panahong CRISTIANO wala ng ikapu o ika-sampung bahagi.Nakita NILA jun $anto$ at EVM basta Sinabi nila at may nabasa sa Biblia,kahit HINDI na aplikable,Sunod ang mga walang alam,bulag at panatiko. Sinasamantala NILA ang pagkatakot at pagkamangmang at pagkapanatiko ng mga Nabulag nila.!! Kaya sa totoo lang “kakaunti talaga ang maliligtas” dahil IILAN lamang ang “nagsusuri”!!
    Nais kong ibahagi sa inyo ang nakuha ko sa Utube ukol sa kung papano nagiging BULAG at PANATIKO ang mga “kaanib sa isang Relihiyon”, narito ang turo o paliwanag ng sumulat—-
    The CHURCH’S Greatest Mistakes OCCUR when the People of GOD Honor what a LEADER
    says Without EXAMINING that Instruction in the LIGHT of SCRIPTURE.!! Parang yung sinabi ni
    Dr.Jose Rizal— sunod lang ng sunod at ayaw magsuri lalo na at ibatay ito sa malinis na aral ni Kristo–sulat sa mga dalagang taga- Malolos.!!! Kaya katotohanang SINDAMI ng buhangin sa dagat ang “mapapahamak” at “kakaunti lamang ang maliligtas”!! Tama lang na IPAGYABANG NILA na Global Church o pambuong SANLIBUTAN na SILA Apoc.12:9—Nadaya ng Diablo!!!


  12. Ibahin ko lang sandali topic.Just watched Global Church ni Edong,sawa na ko kasasabi Nila na kaya sila Lumakas at Dumami ay dahil “kasama daw Nila ang Dios”? Kaya napilitan akong check sa internet ang Lakas at Dami ng mga Relihiyon na ITO:
    1) ISLAM—- 1.8 billion
    2) CATHOLIC— 1.3 billion
    3) BUDDHIST— 520 million
    paano ito ngayon mga OWE o EVM church– Lumakas at Dumami ba ang mga relihiyong ITO dahil kasama ang DIOS? Katulad NINYO ngayon? Sagot? Yan ang katunayan na “kayo na mararami at malakas” ang NADAYA—Apoc.12:9 di ba pinagyayabang ninyo,patuloy pa kayong Dumadami at Nagtatagumpay!!! dahil sa dios!!!not DIOS!!


  13. Mga Bro.”mahusay pang magpayo si Jose Rizal kay Edong”,heto mula aklat ni Gat J.Rizal– sa Mga Dalagang taga- Malolos :
    dapat palakihin ang anak na malapit baga sa larawan ng “tunay na Dios”,Dios na Hindi Nasusuhulan,Dios na di Masakim sa Salapi,Dios na Ama ng lahat,na Walang kinikilingan,
    Dios na di tumataba sa Dugo ng Mahirap,na di Nagsasaya sa Daing ng Naruruhagui, at Nambubulag ng Matalinong Isip.
    Gisingin at ihanda ang loob ng anak sa balang Mabuti at Mahusay na akala; pagmamahal sa Puri,matapat at matimtimang loob,Maliwanag ang Pag-iisip, Malinis na Asal,Maginoong kilos, Pag-ibig sa Kapua at Pagpipitagan sa Maykapal, ito ang ITURO sa anak.!!
    Duwag at Mali ang akala na ang Bulag na Pagsunod ay Kabanalan,at Kapalaluan ang Mag-isip-isip at Magnilaynilay. Di Hiling ng Dios,puno ng Karunungan,na ang Taong Kalarawan NIYA ay
    Paulol at Pabulag;ang hiyas ng isip,na ipinalamuti sa Atin,Paningningin at Gamitin.!! Ano ang kabanalang Itinuro sa atin? Bagay na Limos sa simbahan,SANGKALAN ang Dios,may bagay baga sa mundong di ari at likha ng Maykapal?
    walang Binubusog kundi ang sandat at inubos ang Salapi,limos sa simbahan o Fraileng Lumalangoy sa Yaman,samantalang ang Salaping ito ay Pinipiga sa Buto ng Mahihirap at Iniaalay sa Panginoon…. O Kabulagan at Kaiklian ng Isip.!!! Bakit ang mga PARI ay walang Bigong KILOS na di may Hinging UPA? at Gutom pa halos ,NAGBIBILI ng kalmen,cuintas at iba-iba pa?
    SOUND FAMILIAR ba ang batikos ni Gat Jose Rizal “noon”, sa PANAHON natin NGAYON? kayo na ang sumagot mga BRO. ha ha ha ha…may relihiyon ba ngayon na kung ano-ano ang negosyo at kung ano-ano ang Ibinebenta sa mga kaanib….pilitan pa!!! ha ha ha ha…


  14. I’ve attended a worship service in the Local of North Diversion last December 2018 & they campaigning about a very special offering to be held on Feb. 23 & 24, 2019 for the renovation of all the chapels in the District of Metro Manila North. The minister emphasize that the District of Central have managed to collect Php50M pesos for the 2 days campaign of special offering they propose for the dynamic leadership of the ‘great’ last year. Then the minister told if you divided the serial no. of the members of the District of Central to the Php50M being collected an average of Php4K have been given by each members. Then the minister pause and said “were not saying that all of you must give Php4K each, we just want your cooperation on this matter to succeed what our administration have planned for the sake of our souls & our salvation.” Only the innocent, insensible, senseless, impassive, unaware, naive, ignorant, unmindful, etc. will be fooled by those opportunist who used the pulpit.


    1. That is the same game and computation they do. They say that the last 3 weeks of 2018 Year end pasalamat generated X millions, so how much more now that the preparation is about 3 months for the april 27/28 TH.So in our local, the target is increased by 3 folds from the already bloated initial target. Walang kabusugan ang kanilang tiyan!


    2. Remember how the church laughed at Eliseo Soriano when he appealed to his brethren to “ease him of his burdens” several years ago. In the video clip, he intimated that if the members could just donate a certain amount, then his problems will be solved. Funny how things play out now for the OWE church.


    3. last Thursday pagsamba in one of MME local, the minister is compelling again the members for the march 30/31 malakihang abuluyan. This is again different gimic to rake in cash. Kawawa ang mga kapatid


  15. Tunay na Tama si Rizal,”sinasangkalan ang KAPILYA” para Gatasan ang mga miembro!! Di pa rin makita ng mga Bulag ang Malaking pagkakaiba ng Sugo at ka EGM kay Evilman!! They have to cooperate to received the Salvation of their Souls?? Yun lamang ngalang Lingap Pamamahayag na Inimbento Nila ngayon,naniniwala jan ang mga bulag at panatiko na sunod ng sunod!! Siguro PERA na ibibigay nila sa mga Tao (kasi Handugan na,pera) sa halip na bigas at de lata,derechaan ng SALAPI para masilaw yung mga bisita at sumama sa kapilya.!!!


  16. Heto ang HINDI ginagawa nila evm n sangoons—sa 2 Corinto 1:24 at 2:17

    Hindi sa Kami ay may pagka-Panginoon sa Inyong Pananampalataya,kundi kami ay mga Tagatulong sa inyong katuwaan:…Sapagkat HINDI Kami gaya ng Karamihan na KINAKALAKAL ang “salita ng Dios”:.!! Napakalinaw ano mga Bro.ang mga Apostol MATUWID at di ginagamit ang Salita ng Dios para “ululin ang mga kapatid”.!! Iyan ang salita ni Rizal–inuulol ang mga miembro ng simbahan para sa kapakanang pansarili.Tulad na “sila ng mga Frayle”!!!


  17. Katatapos ko lang nood ka Dizon bstudy 2-13-19.yung hamon niya kay cantor,sinagot.Sinagot naman ni ka Dizon at napakalinaw.tunay na wala ng patnubay ng E.Santo ang mga OWE na ito.!!


  18. Heto mga Bro.napaisip lang ako.Sabi ni ka Ger “balak” makalikom ng 50milyon pesos para”daw” renovation ng mga kapilya sa metro-manila? Duda ako jan,kc ilan pung beses sila naghandugan sa Templo,Bago-Bantay,Quiapo at iba pa,pero inabot ng Siyam-siyam bago “napapintahan” ang mga lokal na nabanggit ko? Baka iyang “planong iyan PAMBAYAD lang ng INTERES sa mga UTANG sa banko!!! Kunwari pang-repair ng kapilya (sanay na magsinungaling ang mga iyan) pero sa Katotohanan PAMBAYAD lang ng interest sa BILYONG UTANG,ano sa palagay nyo mga Bro.? Ito ang opinion ko,freedom of expression di ba? Mahusay magsalamangka si J$,remember?
    noon ISANG Hudas lang nagkanulo sa Cristo,ngayon buong Sangoons at OWE ipinagkanulo si ka ERDY.!!! Kaya nagkaluko-luko ang Pamamahala daw ni EVM.!! Kunwari panay kuno sa kapakanan ng Iglesia,ngunit ang totoo sa kapakanan nilang LAHAT na lapastangan at Suwail.!!!


  19. Tama ka rin ka RAVEN,kaluluwa ng mga kapatid “naisangla” na nga pala sa mga UTANG sa banko.Pareho kayong tama ni ka PDC– Naibebenta sa HALALAN sa mga pulitiko ang Kaluluwa at Naisasangla sa mga Banko.Malupit pa sila sa mga FRAYLE ng panahon ni Rizal!! Matindi ano mga BRO.!!!


  20. Last weekend WS is via webex again. Same old topic from our beloved EVM. Wala yata alam na talata na iba..paulit ulit lang ang turo..compared that to ka Dizon..ang dami baging talata na now ko lang nadinig. Minsan naiisip ko sana noon ko pa nadinig ang mga talatang yun.

    Going back sa webex last sunday, indirectly they are admiting that if you will read or listen to those “rebel” or ” lumalaban”ay for matatalikod ka nga…ay naku…kung totoo ba naman na may nararamdaman pa na ES ang kapatid bakit ba naman sya maniniwala ky dizon? Nqgiisip na kasi ang mga kapatid kaya madali nilang macompare kung alin ang tama at mali


    1. Tama ka Ka PDC, ang daming talata sa biblia na ngayon ko lang narinig at naunawaan mula kay Ka Jon Dizon. Gaya na lang ng sa Juan 15:1-9 TLAB
      “..Ako ang puno ng ubas, kayo ang mga sanga: Ang nananatili sa akin, at ako’y sa kaniya, ay siyang nagbubunga ng marami: sapagka’t kung kayo’y hiwalay sa akin ay wala kayong magagawa..”

      Tumanda na ako sa Iglesia, ang buong akala ko, ang bunga na tinutukoy dito yung bungang kaluluwa. Sa mga pagsambang napanood ko sa Small Remnants na pinangasiwaan ni Ka Jon, ang bungang tinutukoy pala ay yung “Fruit of the Spririt” sa Galatians 5:22-23:

      22 Datapuwa’t ang bunga ng Espiritu ay pagibig, katuwaan, kapayapaan, pagpapahinuhod, kagandahang-loob, kabutihan, pagtatapat,
      23 Kaamuan, pagpipigil; laban sa mga gayong bagay ay walang kautusan.

      Napakaganda ng mga paliwanag ni Ka Jon tungkol sa Fruit of the Spirit. Sayang lang at kulang ang na-download ko mula sa youtube, wala yung iba. Ito lang ang available:

  21. Mga Bro. di nyo pala alam na ang bunga na tinutukoy ay BUNGA ng Kabanalan o Katuiran.Kasama rin jan yang pagmimisyon o pagbubunga ng kaluluwa.Ngunit HINDI lamang iyan ang “bunga” na sinasabi ng Cristo.Kapag sinikap natin na gawing lahat sa abot ng ating makakaya na TUPARIN ang mga utos o kalooban ng AMA–“pagbubunga iyon” at Hindi ka mahihiwalay kay Cristo bilang Sanga.Iyan ang talagang kahulugan ng sinabi ng Cristo na “pagbubunga ng Marami at manatili ka sa Kanya para di ka Mahiwalay.!!! bibliko
    Wala na “talagang ituturo si EVM kundi panay sa mga Kalaban daw niya/nila.Takot na ang mga Iyan dahil nahahayag na ang mga gawa nilang MALI!!! Lalong lumalalim ang HINUHUKAY nilang balon na kung saan doon SILA lahat mahuhulog.!!! Sa totoo lang,HINDI sila makakalaban ng HARAPANG debate sa mga tiniwalag nilang ministro—mapapahiya sila,hindi nila gagawin iyan,sa Tribuna lang sila aatake. Halimbawa sa debate—SINO ang Sumuway sa Pamamahala noong Nabubuhay pa ang ka EGM,Kaming mga ITINIWALAG Ninyo o KAYONG Nandiyan ngayon sa OWE? Sige mga BRO at mga OWE na nagbabasa dito,iyan ang TEMA ng DEBATE,sino sa inyong OWE ang haharap kina ka Dizon,Samson o ka Menorca? Iyan ang hamon ko sa EVM Church at sa Sangoons at lahat ng OWE/STF!!! Sige,patunayan ninyo na sa DIOS pa kayo,iyan ang PAGDEBATEHAN na paksa—- Sino ang Sumuway at Nagtaksil sa Pamamahala ng ka EGM??
    Bien Santiago,Joe Ventilacion,Migule Sandoval,Max Bularan na mga Debatista ng EVM– sige harapin nyo iyang PAKSANG iyan kung Tunay na sa Dios at Cristo pa kayo!!!!!


  22. Ka PDC “opposite” talaga ni EVM si ka EGM.Sayang di ko alam maglagay ng audio o video dito sa internet.May Pagsamba kc akong tape ni ka EGM na sinasabi sa mga kapatid na “makinig at magsiyasat kayo sa Iglesia at sa IBANG relihiyon,kahit sa mga kumakalaban sa atin at IKUMPARA ninyo ang Aral.Ang “pinagbabawalan lamang namin na huag makinig sa iba ay kung “mahina” ang inyong Pananamplataya.Ngunit kung kayo ay nakatitiyak na matibay ang inyong pananampalataya,MAGSURI kayo at ikumpara ang aral natin sa ibang relihiyon.!! Napakalinaw ng sinabing ito na OPPOSITE NI EDONG.Si edong “inuutusan nila ang mga kapatid na huag makinig o magsuri,”basta” sa KANILA lamang dapat sumunod he he he he,TAKOT na maikumpara iyong Turo nila ngayon na panay kasi Mali at Salungat na sa Biblia.!!! Kaya bawal sila ng bawal di ba,TAKOT sila na mabuko ang mga turo nila na Mali na.!! Kung tunay kang sa Dios at alam mong TOTOO ang aral at turo mo at NAITANIM mo sa puso ng tagapakinig ang KATOTOHANAN,bakit natatakot ka na Makinig ang mga miembro mo sa ibang relihiyon kalaban man o hindi? Ako lang,mula pa nung mag-Iglesia ako hanggang ngayon,NAKIKINIG ako at Nanonood sa TV EVERYDAY sa mga tele-evengelist,Mormons,Sabadista kahit sa Muslim,pero HINDI ako nahihikayat dahil pag sinuri mo ang mga ito UNBIBLICAL naman. Kaya Edong ano IKINATATAKOT Mo/Ninyo kung Totoo na sa DIOS kayong Tunay?? Patotoo lang na HINDI kayo sumasampalataya na ang Aral nyo ay may PATNUBAY pa ng Dios at E.Santo—ayaw ng tumatak sa puso at kaluluwa ng miembro ninyo.!! Kasi takoot na takoot ka/kayo na magbasa sa smedia ang mga kapatid nyo,kc makikita nila ang TAMA at MALI di ba? Kung sino ang Sinungaling at Hindi,di ba? Sige na,makipagdebate na kayo sa mga itiniwalag ninyong ministro ng Magkaalaman kung SINO ang sa panig ng DIOS.!!! Harapan,personal,huag sa TV,jan walang sagutang derecho.Yun nga lang tanong na BINUWAG ba ni EVM ang STF na UTOS ng ka EGM o ITINULOY pa,hindi ninyo MASAGOT di ba?? Paano yan,simpleng TANONG di nyo masagot ha ha ha ha—tapos nasa panig kayo ng DIOS? wow!!!!!
    ka Mario ok pa ako,basta bigla akong nawala,palit ka sa akin ,ok?


  23. Ka Raven di mo pa alam ang 2 aklat sa Biblia na HINDI nabanggit ang pangalang DIOS at PANGINOON? Di ba tinanong ko ito sayo dahil nagbabasa ka na ng Biblia? Saka yung 2 siudad(city) na ginunaw din ng Dios tulad ng Sodoma at Gomora? Sasagutin ko na ito sayo nxt time–ka Bibliko


      1. Book of Esther shows no miracle from God, but shows His footprint…God working behind the scene. Song of Solomon shows the essence of married love as God sees His relationship to Israel…to show God’s generous, passionate love for Israel.


    1. Ka Bibliko, sensya na blank ang test paper na isa-submit ko, hehe, di ko pa kasi tapos basahin. Minsan, tumatalon ako ng chapter, pag nanonood kasi ako ng bible study, tapos chineck ko ang isang talatang binanggit ni Ka Jon, napapa-direcho na basa ko sa chapter.

      Pero mula ng iwan ko ang iglesia ni EVM, at dumalo sa mga pagsamba at bible study ng Small Remnants, mas lumawak ang pagkaunawa ko tungkol sa mga kalooban ng Panginoong Diyos. Mas lumalim ang pagkakilala ko sa Ama at Panginoong Jesucristo. Malaya na ang puso ko at di nabibihag ng pagkaalipin sa paniniwalang ang hindi sumunod sa pamamahala ni EVM ay hindi maliligtas.

      Para sa akin, ito ang kahulugan ng pag-ibig sa Diyos, ipagpapalit ko ang pangakong kaligtasan sa iglesia ni EVM para lang patunayan ko sa Ama na pinakamamahal ko Sya. Kagaya ni Sadrak, Mesak at Abednego, na kayang lumakad sa apoy ng pagsubok at hindi susunod sa sinumang hari dito sa lupa kundi sa Ama lang.


  24. Correct Bro. book of Esther n Songs of Solomon. Name GOD n LORD never mentioned. How about the 2 cities destroyed by God like Sodom n Gomorrah?


  25. Another “quiz”,saang aklat mababasa na isang Hari,hindi Hebreo o Israelita na ang “kama” sa dating salin sa biblia,ngunit sa MB na salin ay “kabaong na yari sa bato” ay 14 feet ang haba at 6 feet ang lapad o luwang? just for fun,sabi nga para relax naman tayo not always serious.
