We have a Simultaneous Breastfeeding with Nurturers of the Earth on Oct. 24, 2013 over 1,000 sites in the PH. Join us! #ADDforBreastfeeding
Among its English-language speaking constitunts, the show is known as The Old Path. The show’s name is also what people has been using to refer to its religious group, Members Church of God International or MCGI.
Its 2013 theme is “Building a Prayerful Nation Through Broadcast Evangelization”. To mark this year’s anniversary, Ang Dating Daan is holding a series of activities that include nationwide tree-planting and coastal cleanup drives, simultaneous breastfeeding in 1,000 multiple stations, and more of the likes.
Looking back before its foray in television, Ang Dating Daan has humble beginnings in radio in 1980. When the show had its first taste of television, there were only three production staff. Before going mainstream, Bro. Eli Soriano used folk media, walking town-to-town to conduct Bible symposiums in the provinces of Pampanga, Bataan and later in Cavite.
Serving as host is Bro. Eli while Kuya Daniel Razon, then in high school, is the show’s director, editor and cameraman. Sis Luz Cruz is Bro. Eli’s makeup artist, researcher and sometimes production assistant.
From IBC Channel 13, the show also went on air in the channels of RJTV-29, SBN-21, PTV-4 and now UNTV-37, its present home. Ang Dating Daan has more than 12-hour regular programming since arriving in UNTV.
On the Internet, viewers can watch the 24-hour web streaming of Ang Dating Daan. Through satellite, the show, which has its different language versions to cater to other nationalities, reaches countries in the six continents of the world.
The twice-Gawad Amerika Most Informative Religious Program has also promoted community-building efforts with its key partner, UNTV. Bro. Eli, meanwhile, in 2009 received the Most Educational Blogger Award from Mashable’s Open Web Awards.
Among the sustaining social service projects launched by Bro. Eli Soriano include medical missions, daily free clinic checkups and medical assistance, free legal assistance, free bus and jeepney rides. All these projects are regularly conducted in key Clinic ni Kuya stations.
Another priority social service of Bro. Eli through Ang Dating Daan and Kuya Daniel Razon through UNTV, respectively is the free education program through La Verdad Christian College in its Apalit, Pampanga and Caloocan City branches.
Transient house in Apalit and Quezon City were also constructed to accommodate indigents who need a full night’s worth of transient accommodation.
On Twitter, @BroEliSoriano once posted:
I want to reach as much soul as possible with the help of the Lord. Kindly pray for us in the ministry. May the good Lord help us all!
Few hours before the Simultaneous Breastfeeding in Multiple Sites event on Thursday (October 24), the phenomenal host of Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) tweets to his more than 45,000 Twitter followers to support the campaign. Up to 1,000 breastfeeding stations across the Philippines will be opened at 9 a.m.
Bro. Eliseo F. Soriano, the Presiding Minister to Members Church of God International (MCGI), tweeted at around 7 p.m. (PHT) his call for support from fellow Filipinos and members of the congregation.
In one of the tweets by @BroEliSoriano in Twitter, the preacher said” “Let us support the campaign for breastfeeding! be a responsible mother, breastfeed your baby; even orphans.”

The event organizer is Nurturers of the Earth, where Dr. Elvira Henares-Esguerra is a major part of. The advocacy group, together with major supporters Ang Dating Daan and UNTV, bids to break records it previously held from Guinness Book of World Records. BMPI-UNTV Chairman and CEO Daniel Razon has also expressed support for the project and called on people to support.
Previously, Nurturers of the Earth with Children and Youth Action gathered more than 3,541 mother-child pairs to participate in their breastfeeding advocacy, eventually earning a Guinness Record for their Simultaneous Breastfeeding in a Single Site campaign.
In another record-breaking streak, the same group notched the Guinness World Record for Simultaneous Breastfeeding in Multiple Sites after pooling 15,128 mother-child pairs to participate in up to 295 sites.
This year, at least 1,000 breastfeeding stations will be opened and expects at least a minimum of 30 mother-child pairs.
Also this month, Ang Dating Daan is celebrating its 33rd Anniversary in the airwaves and television broadcasting in the Philippines.
Seems like scandals are what preoccupy the national consciousness these days. From the showbiz lot to political arena, Filipinos can just pick one scandal after another to get some life lessons about learning the hard way. But we’ll focus on the parallels between the lavish lifestyle of the Napoles Family, which is allegedly ill-gotten, and that of a certain Daniel Verdiano who also rose to fame for embezzling money, then later betraying and charging of rape his former Church leader after joining an all-powerful Church group in the Philippines. nine years ago.
Janet Lim-Napoles Scandal
Since late July this year, videos circulated on the Internet of the lavish and posh lifestyle of the Napoles Family. You may wonder, what’s wrong with having a 2008 Porsche Cayenne that’s worth $21,385 and $42,503? Or a Porsche Boxster that’s worth $48,100 and $65,200? Then how about YSL Tribute Leather sandals ($875), Chanel timeless clutch ($1,900), Hublot white Big Bang watch (11,400 euros), Celine medium luggage tote ($3,100), Chanel watch (4,000 euros), Or Herve Leger bandage dress ($1,568) as gifts to the daughter? Okay so what’s wrong? The problem is that there’s no proof as concrete as the bricks of the Egyptian pyramids that the Napoles has been involved in any legitimate business that can support these posh expenses. As of this day, the social media accounts and blog of the wealthy Napoles’ daughther was already deactivated to avoid further controversies.
So what made me finally returned to blogging and talk about this? It’s head-scratching but it’s also fuming me to hell just how our hard-earned taxes simply go to these scums and corrupts. According to reports JLN Enterprises, an Ortigas-based firm owned by no less than Janet Lim-Napoles (JLN), has cornered at least P10-Billion after several lawmakers, senators and congressmen allegedly funded bogus non-government organizations in exchange for substantial kickbacks. The funds of these lawmakers were derived fromtheir Priority Development Assistance Fund or pork barrel. And you know where pork barrel should be devoted to, right? It should fund infrastructure and other projects for the benefits of their local constituencies.
This story has many powerful mysteries wrapped around it. But for now our hope is to be more vigilant and determined to put to jail those responsible and those who will surely be exposed on this.
Daniel Veridiano Scandal
Which brings us to Daniel Veridiano, a.k.a. Puto Veridiano. Puto is a homosexual and his lavish lifestyle was another interesting controversial story that hugged the limelight simply because the religion he is now a member of can use him all they want in exchange for material sustenance for Puto.
Puto lived the life of a rich and powerful just with the swipe of credit cards that he was then entrusted to use as a Department Supervisor of the IT Group of the Ang Dating Daan. Instead, Veridiano embezzled the funds and used the money for his own material luxuries that include luxury watches, jewelries, local and foreign trips to beaches and shopping sprees, including a penis enlarger!
Puto Veridiano splurges the money in transforming his ver ugly duckling face into the celebrity kind. Records that were released after exposing Veridiano showed he made expensive purchases that include P3,000-worth Calvin Klein briefs, P50,000-worth bracelets, P70,000-worth luxury watches, and more. He also plurges a lot of money for eating in posh and luxurious restaurants as if he owned these money! His penis enlarger purchase cost P10,000 from the House of Condom in Singapore!
How was he exposed? More than 15 underage boys appeared to report Daniel Verdiano in 2004 for various sexual acts of lasciviousness and rape. Veridiano later admitted the crimes and violations through a confession letter and a video.
Since Puto would not change, Veridiano was excommunicated by the Ang Dating Daan group and was told to leave the ADD Convention Center. Puto was financially-strapped when he left the premises of the ADD, which means he’s really not financially stable and capable of supporting the lavish lifestyle that he showed while using credit cards and funds issued to him during his ADD days.
To continue with his material needs, he joined the Iglesia ni Cristo and that’s where he started his new life: to revenge against Bro. Eli Soriano by charging the preacher of a rape that Puto himself concocted. Puto knew very well that joining the INC will save him face and the perfect place for him to continue his revenge against Soriano.
INC is one of the religions that the ADD Leader is exposing because of its wrongful teachings about Jesus Christ as mere man, unbiblical doctrines and more biblical fallacies. Puto knows that at that time INC need someone like him to persecute Soriano.
I am quoting from this blog what’s common between Daniel Veridiano and the Iglesia ni Cristo:
The common denominator to Puto and the INC is that they have the same enemy – Eliseo Fernando Soriano – the walking bible who readily says a mouthful about religions he had examined to be deceiving people and whatever he sees as evil. No matter that the constitution of the Interpol says it doesn’t involve itself in crimes that do not overlap several member countries in order to maintain as politically neutral a role as possible, Eliseo Soriano’s name is suddenly in its list. Puto’s enemy and the INC’s enemy seems well-taken care of. From a rape case that Puto concocted, helped by his Iglesia ni Cristo, they have him secure on a “Red Notice” of the Interpol according to an INC report.
If it’s the Christian Louboutin or Porsche luxury cars that opened a can of secrets from politics and the country’s justice system in the case of Janet Lim-Napoles, it’s the penis enlarger that sparked a wave of fresh insight about the relationship of religion, politics, justice system and military connection that the scandal of Daniel Veridiano had opened.
