It has more than 4. Print media The church distributes print and digital materials for free.
Soriano's online blogs are also compiled and printed as "The Blog Magazine". The church has also been acknowledged by the Philippine Bible Society as a regular donor and major distribution partner of Tagalog Bibles.
The church rejects the traditional doctrine of trinity mainly on its concept that there is "one God in three co-equal persons", which for them, is against the Bible. They also consider the Father is greater than Jesus Christ, the head of Christ and greater than all. He is the only savior of mankind and the only way to the kingdom of God in heaven Acts They believe that Christ descended on earth from the bosom of the Father, suffered for the redemption of sin, died on the cross, resurrected after three days, ascended to heaven and sat on the right side of God.Basic Teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses
All church gatherings, either spiritual or socio-civic, begin and end with prayers. The church believes that it is a commandment of God to live a prayerful life based on 1 Thes 5: As a discipline, they refrain from showing the act of praying on their television broadcasts, either live or recorded, in public. However, only the audio of the community prayer is being aired, to encourage non-brethren to join and participate in praying to God, without necessarily being seen publicly.
It is where the true religion and worship is being practiced.
The people of God will offer incense, not a literal incense, but "prayers" Rev 5: Prophet Isaiah mentioned about people giving glory to the Lord God of Israel in the "coastlands of the sea in the east" Revised Standard Version and "isles of the sea in the east" King James Version.
They "will start from few", but God promised that "I will multiply them" and "they shall not be small". They believe that only the church can teach the wisdom of God for the salvation of mankind citing Luke 8: They strongly believe that Christ came to the earth in many occasions already and his return will not be the "second" citing 1 Cor Those righteous who are still alive will be caught up together with the resurrected saints in the clouds, to meet Jesus Christ in the air citing 2 Thes 4: The church believes that Jesus Christ will reign with his saints for another one thousand 1, years citing Rev Satan will be imprisoned during this period.
The remaining people on earth who are still alive, those who were not caught up in the air to meet Christ, will be given a chance to salvation. After the 1,year period, another resurrection will occur.
God will then judge all people, the living and the dead, according to what they have done. This will happen on God's appointed "day", the "judgment day" or the "last day" citing Acts Those who will not merit salvation will be thrown into the "lake of fire" Tagalog: After the judgment day will be the earth's destruction. Membership Baptism is a key part in their doctrines. If you happen to leave the ADD cult, you will experience the same treatment.
However, the truth they imply is not the truth of the Bible-but the fabricated and false teachings of Soriano.

You be expected to be part of a fabricated world of the ADD-which is not a world of reality but a world of deception and stupidity. You will be expected to avoid social life with your non-ADD friends, you will not be expected to participate in worldly things like Christmas, you will not be expected to purse higher education, you will not be expected to booze, attend a picnic, or even other pleasures of life. Soriano is a deceptive business man using religion to enrich himself.
One of the tricks he uses is the stance against tithes. Ignorant of the fact that Soriano uses this humble approach to amass wealth, his followers give him money on a large scale. You will be expected to offer money for the various contribution schemes in the cult. These schemes are the clever business mechanisms the Ang Dating Daan uses to fleeces loyal followers of their hard earned cash.
In short, Soriano is a serial thug. Questions to ponder Now that you are conscious about what to expect from joining the Ang Dating Daan, what is your idea? Do you think you will gain salvation from the Ang Dating Daan or damnation?
I bet you realize it is the latter? May be the Bible would a good starting point. These are false teachers like Soriano.
