The Universe As The Metaphor

Really Random Reese

“What if ‘God’ is a metaphor for the universe?”

I no longer recall the first instance I had seen the question above. It is buta rhetoric statement.

Browsing through Pinterest one Sunday morning, I saw the statement again.

The user who uploaded the image puts forward a very interesting follow-up to the question. The caption read: “What if God is a metaphor for the universe and we really are created in its image?”

In his question, the user above referred to the Bible verse in the book of Genesis 1:27 which reads, “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created Hehim; male and female created He them.” (King James Version)

However, the user’s intention in asking the question seemed inclined to explaining how man came to believe in God, with the assumption that the latter is not so.

Ang Dating Daan, Hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano and Kuya Daniel Razon, Marks 36th Year of Broadcast Evangelization with Special Worldwide Bible Exposition and Charity

ang-dating-daan-36-years

[Manila, PHILIPPINES] In its 36th year on the airwaves, the longest running religious program Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path), hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano of the Members Church of God International (MCGI) and Kuya Daniel Razon of UNTV News and Rescue, will hold a Special Worldwide Bible Exposition on Friday, 9 December 2016, at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena in Pasay City.

A night of exalting study on the Holy Scriptures and echoing of psalms is expected to interest at least 15,000 people in attendance.

In 2015, the Ang Dating Daan Chorale broke the Guinness Book of World Records for being the “Largest Gospel Choir” in connection to the 35th anniversary of Ang Dating Daan at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

ang-dating-daan-chorale
Cheers erupted from inside the jam-packed Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City when the announcement was made on October 12, 2015 that the Ang Dating Daan Chorale bagged the Guinness Title as the “Largest Choir in the World” with singers reaching 8,688, which is coincidentally also the hotline of UNTV News and Rescue: 911-UNTV or 911-8688.

Free 8,000+ Bible Copies

More than 8,000 copies of the Bible, sponsored by Bro. Eli and Kuya Daniel, have been earlier announced to be given away for free to visitors during the Special Worldwide Bible Exposition in celebration of the 36th anniversary of Ang Dating Daan on December 9. This is a feat that no other congregation has achieved before.

As a testament to the advocacy of Bro. Eli in sharing the Word of God, the Philippine Bible Society named the Overall Servant to MCGI a “regular donor and major distribution partner” in 2005 for purchasing and donating PhP1M worth of Bible copies the year before.

Undying Charity

Bro. Eli and Kuya Daniel have been funding plentiful of charitable projects such as medical & dental missions, legal services, feeding programs, blood donation drives, full scholarship grants, all-expense paid Bible seminars and mass baptisms, among others, for decades. Orphanages for abandoned babies and the elderly, clinics with well-trained staff, transient homes offering free accommodations, broadcast studios with state-of-the-art equipment, schools accredited by the Department of Education and convention centers for brethren have been built through their undying efforts with the help and mercy of the Almighty. In fact, Bro. Eli marked his 52nd anniversary while Kuya Daniel celebrated his 33rd birthday in service to God and humanity, respectively, this year.

Beneficiaries and auspices of Bro. Eli and Kuya Daniel are highlighted, not to boast, but rather to increase awareness of viewers on socio-economic concerns.

Itanong Mo Kay Soriano, Biblia Ang Sagot

On Friday, Bro. Eli and Kuya Daniel will conduct a Special Worldwide Bible Exposition, which aims to study and understand the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ in contrast with malicious and erroneous teachings of earthly pastors today. Ang Dating Daan segment Itanong Mo Kay Soriano, Biblia Ang Sasagot (Ask Bro. Eli, the Bible will Answer) is where visitors can ask unscripted faith-related questions to Bro. Eli in real-time. Debates, where Bro. Eli has always emerged victorious, is possible to happen much to the excitement of the crowd.
