He wows them by quoting verses in answering questions on any topic under the sun. The Bible gives its’ own explanation in John as him being sent, therefore speaks the words of God, who gave him unlimited spirit…When a group thinks its leader is “the messenger of God”, they end up with a “true church” mentality or the belief “that they alone are saved or will be saved”. One sign of such mentality is they believe the founder or the group was prophesied in the Bible.
For them, this is proof that Soriano is a “sugo” (sent-one) or that God commissioned him in a special way like that of the apostles. 8“And it shall come to pass in all the land,” Says the Lord, “That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, But one-third shall be left in it: 9I will bring the one-third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ”But again, poor hermeneutics played a part. So this prophecy does not apply in any way to the ADD. But, even if a person can quote it verbatim from memory, misinterpretations belie his claim to divine commission. For the ADD, faith is not enough for salvation and one must fulfill requirements to qualify for eternal life such as joining the church.
[that] which is merely outward”. That is why the New International Version translated “form” into “very nature.” Thus, the ADD erred in understanding “likeness” and “appearance” (vv.
7-8) because they already misread “form.” If Jesus Christ was a real man, why did he have to be made in the likeness of men? If he was already a man, why did He have to be made in the likeness of men?
Their denial of the humanity of Christ actually watered down the Gospel.
“Anything less than real humanity would detract from the value of the cross”. The parallelism that Jesus is the second Adam would be pointless if He is not really a man (Rom -19; 1 Cor -22, 45-49).
In 1922, eight years after the founding of the Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ, hereon referred to as INC), minister Nicholas Perez broke away from it due to doctrinal differences.
Though Soriano was an honor student, he failed to finish high school because he got into an argument with a teacher regarding religious issues three months before graduation. Immediately after his baptism in 1964, Soriano joined the ministerial class and since then rose from the ranks. Only Soriano got the title “Minister” from Perez, “making him the only other minister in the Church at that time.” When Perez died in 1975, a power struggle ensued. Barely 30 years old, Soriano led a faction of 500 members, which they registered as Ang Mga Kaanib ng Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohanan sa Bansang Pilipinas (The Members of the Church of God in Christ Jesus, the Pillar and Ground of Truth in the Philippines).In other words, He lived like a man.There are preachers who think that, through hermeneutics they can rightfully understand the Bible. They do not contribute in developing correct interpretation and understanding of the Bible.But, because the Bible is not only the words of God but also of man, reading is an interpretation by itself: “From the standpoint of the Bible as literature, the simplest error of reading is the failure to consider the immediate context of the verse or passage in question.” In reading a passage, there is a need to properly interpret the meaning of words.How a word is used in its context determines its meaning.To make it easy to remember, the author devised the acronym C. These verses clearly state that our Lord Jesus only assumed the form of man. Therefore, to teach that our Lord Jesus Christ is a man is a big mistake.He is not a man by nature; He only assumed the form of a man. Why did John said [sic] that our Lord Jesus was a man?
