Ang Dating Daan 31

Ang Dating Daan Celebrates 31st Anniversary in Broadcast, Public Service

Ang Dating Daan (ADD), the multi-awarded religious program hosted by Bro Eli Soriano, is celebrating 31 years this October. Known for its vigorous evangelization works on radio and television since 1980, the show now reaches more than 30 countries globally.

Starting as a 30-minute radio program when it went on air in 1980, Ang Dating Daan went on air television in 1983. Since then, the program continued to attract more viewers and listeners, becoming a household name.

More opportunities opened for Ang Dating Daan when it reached western shores in 2004, paving the way for its launch of the Spanish and Portuguese titles, El Camino Antiguo and O Caminho Antigo. Now airing on free and cable television, especially in North and South America, these programs have a 24 hours and 7 days a week schedule. Fox Channel is the most recent addition to ADD’s official carriers.

The production staff was initially a three-man team of Bro. Eli Soriano, Bro. Daniel Razon, and Sis. Luz Cruz. Together, they pioneered the popular program, now known internationally as The Old Path. To date, ADD broadcasts in more than 30 countries in Asia, Europe, North America, Central America, and South America through satellite and the World Wide Web.

The program takes pride in its unique brand of question and answer segment, Itanong Mo Kay Soriano, Biblia Ang Sasagot. The question-and-answer portion has sustained the show’s popularity among the viewing public for years. Here, Bro. Eli Soriano answers every possible question on religion and faith. What is unique about the question and answer segment is that Bro Eli answers the questions from live audience whether in the studio or when there are Bible Expositions in various places.

Because of the program’s popularity, its approach in religious discussion and exposition of religious fraud, Ang Dating Daan also became the target of various hate campaigns on television, radio, broadsheets, and the Internet. Even as it continues to hail the flag in the West, censure also followed it.

It has survived not only vicious criticisms in the Philippines but also won against series of legal suits and political black propaganda which all have attempted to ban the program. Many times, Ang Dating Daan was caught in religious clashes with rivalling religious groups and targeted its cease in broadcast.

Although such efforts put a strain to the program’s survival, Ang Dating Daan continues to satisfy the religious interest of people. More to it is the support and warm welcome from those who admitted they “have grown tired of their former religions that had done nothing but to extort money from them.”

Over the years, the program has also grown to be identified in the public as promoter of social good through its charity projects and programs. It has forged numerous partnerships with government and non-government organizations upholding public service advocacies on health, education, social welfare, responsible journalism, and environment protection.

Among its programs for the marginalized sector are the free bus ride, free transient home, quarterly mass blood donations, free medical services, free legal services, feeding programs, free education, orphanages, and disaster-relief missions. It also initiated environmental awareness actions, like tree planting and clean-up drives.

The public services of Ang Dating Daan have inspired similar projects and campaigns. One such is the Isang Araw Lang (Just One Day) Campaign, a social good propaganda which upholds doing good even for just one day.

Due to its vigorous evangelization and public service programs, Ang Dating Daan has earned many citations for its contributions to spiritual and social welfare. One is the Gawad Amerika, when it named Ang Dating Daan as the Most Informative Religious Program in 2009. The following year, the Philippine National Red Cross acknowledged Ang Dating Daan as most outstanding partner for its continuous donations of safe blood.

As host, Bro. Eli has also been awarded many times, the highest distinction being The Most Educational To Follow in 2010 by Mashable.com. His blog, esoriano.wordpress.com, was chosen best from among many sites which competed in the same category. – Written by Cecile Vizcaya

TheOldPath.TV launches on August 11 a new webcast page using UStream.TV and Facebook interactive chat that will regularly stream the live broadcast of Bro. Eliseo Soriano’s Bible Exposition and to reach users of these popular social media platforms, respectively.

The webcast page will be located at The Old Path Live with Facebook page.

TheOldPath.TV, the award-winning video streaming website of the Members Church of God International (MCGI), initially features live and archived videos of the episodes of Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path), Biblically Speaking, Truth in Focus, and Itanong Mo kay Soriano (Ask Soriano).  In recent years, however, the organization reinforced its live streaming capabilities through TheOldPath.TV, and opened several video channels on Youtube.com in hopes of reaching to a wider audience and using the interactivity features of the popular video sharing site.

Bible Exposition, a symposium-like live event, is one of the signature bible study activities hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano.  As the resource person and speaker, Bro. Soriano answers questions from live audience from a venue.  With the aid of technology and the Internet, Bible Expositions are simultaneously held live on a scheduled venue and across other nations through live streaming.

Bro. Eli Soriano is the award-winning host of one of the Philippines’ longest-running religious program, Ang Dating Daan.  Last February 2009, his blog site was awarded the Most Popular Website of the Year by the Philippine Web Awards, which is an annual competition for website excellence organized by the Media G8Way Co.

Facebook, a social utility online to connect people from everywhere, is now the leading social networking website with more than 132.1 million unique visitors since April last year, according to comScore. Two-year old UStream.TV, on the other hand, a popular site for lifecasting and live streaming of events, said it now have more than 1 million registered users who generate 1.5 million hours of live streamed content per month with over 10 million unique hits per month, according to a Businesswire.com report.

Reporting or coverage about religion should be made responsibly.  As much as possible, religious journalism, like politics, must be independent from pressure and influence from any party.

These seem to be  the united sentiment that can be drawn from the blogs and comment streams by people who believe that biased and irresponsible journalism is being served the public by several news stories made in the Philippines singularly all against the phenomenal preacher, Bro. Eliseo Soriano or Bro. Eli of the Ang Dating Daan television program.

One case in point is the recent attempt by Arnold Clavio through his docu-drama program Case Unclosed aired over GMA7 to make a documentary about a still on-going case of an alleged rape case filed by Daniel Veridiano (also known as Puto), who was excommunicated in the Members Church of God International due to various offenses.

Thankfully though, citizen journalists, bloggers and several members of the Ang Dating Daan, who can no longer swallow the persistent false reporting in the press and major television networks about Bro. Eli Soriano, stormed the cyberspace.  With the help of technology, these people now have the means to open their hearts and voice their sentiments and criticisms against irresponsible reportage done by Mr. Clavio’s team.

Less Traveled Road blogger, Ms Jane Abao, has been posting her analysis about the kind of journalism done by Mr. Clavio.  In her recent post, she immediately fired

A giant TV network used a self-confessed serial rapist as a resource person recently to discuss a pending case he had filed against a fearless preacher known for exposing false practices…

Meanwhile, another citizen journalist with the alias vitaminB recently posted at CNN’s iReport.com about the convenience of filing rape to shot down leaders.  According to the article, what’s happening to political leaders can also extend to religious preachers as well.

The Religious sector can also be influenced by this convenient form of character assault. Eliseo Soriano, a church leader of the Members Church of God International and a host of the international religious program, Ang Dating Daan (The Old path), was accused of rape by an excommunicated member of the sect. Daniel Veridiano, who later converted to another religious sect known for being strongly criticized by Soriano for their false teachings, sued Soriano for rape in September 2005. The case was shortly dismissed due to lack of evidence. The dismissed case was however filed again in higher court by the country’s Department of Justice Secretary, Raul Gonzales, who is not in anyway involved with the case.

vitaminB concluded that rape is being used to shot down good leaders and will continue as a trend.

As is the case always, the truth that should be reported in the mainstream are blocked or filtered by some influential parties.

For one, the Iglesia ni Cristo, the religious group persistently exposed for their false teachings and malpractices, is publicly known as a group which uses its bloc-voting power to influence the government and the media.  But slow by slow, the public are being informed about its profit-making and deceitful schemes.

Without the new media, the blog posts and essays by these bloggers and citizen journalists about media irresponsibility might find it hard to go mainstream.  Especially, if the reporting that is being made is an expose of religious malpractices and deceits.  In fact, there is always the danger and threat of one being harassed legally and murdered when one reports about the weird doctrines and crimes of religious leaders.

Marcos Mataro, a host of the D’ X-Man program being aired at UNTV37, was the very latest casualty of being truthful as a journalist.  He was killed for his unflinching expose of his former religion and leaders, the founders of the Iglesia ni Cristo.

Only in the cyberspace can one report about the truth about the buried crimes of these religious leaders.  A blogger named Emily Jordan persistently write about these crimes of the deceased Manalo.  Her article, Felix Manalo: Rapist of His Members and His Ministers’ Wives, will obviously shame the clan of Manalo. 

In 1954, the newspaper The Bombshell published a three-part story concerning Felix Manalo, founder of the Iglesia Ni Cristo. The first part was published on October 21 with front page headline “IGLESIA NI CRISTO ‘HEAD’ ANGEL OR SEX MANIAC?” The article includes a letter of confession from a certain Rosita Trillanes who, according to her, was raped several times by Felix Manalo.

But truths are truths.  These truths may be hard to accept but the public must be informed.

With the aid of technology and rise of citizen journalism, the once suppressed and filtered voices can now share the same platform used by professional journalists who write for establishments.  In the cyberspace, even an unschooled blogger or citizen journalist will be heard and can command change and action.

But even with the rise of new breed of journalists and reporters on the Web, the basics of reporting and journalism remain: being fair, truthful, accurate and relevant.  No amount of technology can influence or change these.  With the power granted by technology to citizen journalists comes great responsibility.  But responsible reporting can only be possible when the one reporting is imbued with clean and good conscience.
