From Twitter, Bro. Eli Soriano tweets tips and advice to his online followers in time for the very controversial and much-anticipated automated polls in the Philippines, a first in the country’s election history.
His hints to voters are biblically-inspired guides in choosing the country’s next political leaders.
One of his tweets read – To my countrymen and politicians: When elected, be a president to be followed! Not a president to follow the caprices of religious leaders! He supported this by citing Romans 13:1-5.
Bro. Soriano, a leader himself in the religious arena, advised would-be leaders to “use [your] power in leading the people with justice and equity, as power is established by God.”
His concern for people drooling over the election mania is reflected in his tweet cautioning his fellow voters “not to place their life to politics, as voting is only a part of social life, and not as significant as the purpose of one’s existence.” This following reports of election-related violence and harassments which have dotted Philippine polls.
Although abroad for miles in more than five years, Bro. Soriano tweets his optimistic wish for his home country “May the LORD bless the Philippines!”
