It is because, that incident happened at the time our Lord Jesus was assuming the form of a human being.The Bible said, He was made in the likeness of men.“It is not absolutely everything that God is able to do, but everything that is consistent with his character.” Errors like this happen when people isolate a verse and pit it against other verses in the Church Mentality.The ADD hail Soriano as “God’s humble messenger in these last days.” They claim he already memorized the entire Bible.In other words, He lived like a man.There are preachers who think that, through hermeneutics they can rightfully understand the Bible. They do not contribute in developing correct interpretation and understanding of the Bible.But, because the Bible is not only the words of God but also of man, reading is an interpretation by itself: “From the standpoint of the Bible as literature, the simplest error of reading is the failure to consider the immediate context of the verse or passage in question.” In reading a passage, there is a need to properly interpret the meaning of words.
It does not mean that “God can do everything and anything” as they alleged.Their denial of the humanity of Christ actually watered down the Gospel.“Anything less than real humanity would detract from the value of the cross”. The parallelism that Jesus is the second Adam would be pointless if He is not really a man (Rom -19; 1 Cor -22, 45-49).Soriano joined that group when he was 17 years old.Though Soriano was an honor student, he failed to finish high school because he got into an argument with a teacher regarding religious issues three months before graduation. Immediately after his baptism in 1964, Soriano joined the ministerial class and since then rose from the ranks. Only Soriano got the title “Minister” from Perez, “making him the only other minister in the Church at that time.” When Perez died in 1975, a power struggle ensued. Barely 30 years old, Soriano led a faction of 500 members, which they registered as Ang Mga Kaanib ng Iglesia ng Dios kay Kristo Hesus, Haligi at Saligan ng Katotohanan sa Bansang Pilipinas (The Members of the Church of God in Christ Jesus, the Pillar and Ground of Truth in the Philippines).
The meaning of a word then may be different in meaning now.
