Jimmy Swaggart, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Reinhard Bonke, Creflo Dollar and many local preachers like Joseph Walters, Dian Warep, the late Joseph Kingal and many more. But Bro. Eli is different
By Seamus Eddie Takei
I am Seamus Eddie Takei, 45 years old, married with three children. I come from Siar Village in Madang Province, Papua New Guinea.
I grew up in the Lutheran faith since childhood through my parents until I became an active member of a Pentecostal movement in 1998.
The first time that I heard about the “The Old Path” was in 2008, through a brother who was assigned by his employer for a project here in Madang. That was when I began to follow the preaching of Bro. Eli Soriano.
In my previous religion, I had known and followed the teachings or preaching of so-called preachers abroad like Jimmy Swaggart, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Reinhard Bonke, Creflo Dollar and many local preachers like Joseph Walters, Dian Warep, the late Joseph Kingal and many more.
What I had discovered from Bro. Eli is that he is different from all the other so called preachers. His way of using the Bible is very different from all the preachers that I knew. He has taught me the proper manner of using the Bible for one to understand it for all it’s worth, with the deep truths and mysteries. Interestingly, not one of his explanations come from his own thinking BUT straight from the Bible. He knows and understands the Bible so well that he can also speak four to five other languages of other nationalities. His explanation is also very perfect as he does not add nor take away a word in the verses of the Bible. The Bible is a very common book that is used all over the world, but Brother Eli is only preacher in our times that knows how to use the Bible uncommonly well. He is so unique.
Thanks be to GOD for His unspeakable gift!
My appeal to my countrymen and even to those outside Papua New Guinea: let the Bible explain its own deep truths and mysteries through God’s messenger in our times, Bro. Eli Soriano. Let us be Biblical!
