Ang Dating Daan is not a religion my friends, it is a title of the religious program on TV and on radio hosted by no less than Bro. Eli Soriano.
Ang Dating Daan was first aired on the year 1980 on a local radio station, DWWA 1206 kHz. It used to be a 30-minute radio program way then. After 3 years, Bro. Eli has decided to put Ang Dating Daan on television. It was aired on the year 1983 on IBC channel 13, a local television station in thePhilippines. Few years after, it moved to another television station, RJTV channel 29 and then on to SBN channel 21 and now currently broadcasting to UNTV (Your Public Service Channel) channel 37.
Ang Dating Daan is known for its one of a kind segment – Itanong Mo Kay Soriano, Biblia ang Sasagot, where people can ask questions to Bro. Eli Soriano about faith, life, love, bible and other topics. (basically about anything under (or above) the sun). All the answers that will be given to all queries will be based and read from the bible, hence the word basa! (read!) has been associated with this program.
In 2002, on the 5th Philippine Web Awards the Ang Dating Daan’s official website – www.angdatingdaan.org received an award for being the Yehey’s Most Popular Website of the Year and was also received the People’s Choice Award in the best organization website category among the 2,000 Philippine websites that competed for the top site in this annual competition. Also, in 2006, it was awarded as the “Most Informative Religious Program” in North America by Gawad America.
Although Ang Dating Daan has already received various awards and recognitions, probably, the most precious and the best from all of these is the remarkable victory of Bro. Eli over all the debates and the enlightened people that were baptized and become members of the true Church of GOD. All of these have become possible with the help of GOD.
Ang Dating Daan will be having its 31st anniversary on the 22nd day of this month, October year 2011.
