A lad named Lawrence once went online and made good use of his webcam and headphones to ask an international preacher if God, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, is the destruction of the world. The preacher, a Filipino named Bro. Eli Soriano, told him that not all ends mean destruction and cited Bible verses for an informative discussion of a little more than 4 minutes.
This is but one of the many videos available online on the newest addition to the Members Church of God International’s (MCGI) list of websites for the benefit of online followers the world over.
As a response to online clamor for better access to Itanong Mo Kay Soriano (Ask Bro. Eli) viewing on the World Wide Web, the MCGI launched MCGI Q & A on August 3, 2011. The website is an online compilation of questions answered by Presiding Minister to MCGI Bro. Eli Soriano throughout the years.
Acquired from Bro. Soriano’s 30 years of preaching efforts via television programs, radio broadcasts and webcasts, MCGI Q & A features recent and time-pertinent questions for online viewing. The most frequently-asked questions regarding issues like resurrection, salvation, Bible mysteries and biblical characters are also featured on the site.
The website’s simple layout aims to make available Bro. Eli’s Bible-based answers to his online followers with ease in mind. All the videos available on the site are tagged and are viewable by category for easier browsing. This may be seen on the site’s home page.
MCGI Q & A is an extension of Bro. Eli’s question and answer history, starting from Bible Expositions in the 1990s to television segments in the Philippines. Today, Bro. Eli answers questions from various points in the world via the Internet on his live webcast show, The Truthcaster.
Right now, in foreign shores, Portuguese and Spanish versions of the Q & A television programs are being aired in South American countries. MCGI Q & A is anticipated to have versions of both languages on the site in the near future.
