In the beginning of his article, Eli Soriano is attempting to put some credibility on his position as a preacher since he claims to be a prophet by applying the “Spirit of Prophecy” to his mission.
He wrote: “the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus (Revelation ).

Their television programs contributed largely to the aggravation of their relations. But while there were previous agreements made, no proper debate had actually materialized between the groups due to varying reasons.
On August 16, 2004, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) preventively suspended the showing of the Ang Dating Daan program for 20 days due to slander and use of offensive and obscene language by its televangelist-host Eliseo Soriano, as a means of disciplinary action.
