Since its initial airing in 2014, the show became popular especially among the youth and overseas Filipino workers.It has touched thousands of lives and strengthened the faith of many souls who thirst for God’s truth. It has received some criticisms from some quarters – mostly about the production quality of the show; others about the rather forceful (or even “colorful”) language sometimes employed by the hosts.The program currently airs live via satellite through the facilities of UHF Channel UNTV and various radio stations such as DZRH, UNTV-Radio La Verdad 1350, and 100 Radyo Natin FM Stations.While mainly broadcasting in Filipino, some English language elements were added for foreign viewers, including "Truth in Focus", "Biblically Speaking", "How Authentic the Bible is", and "Bible Guide".Selected episodes of the program can also be viewed on the Internet through the Members Church of God International websites and on You Tube.It has been recognized as one of the longest-running religious programs in the Philippines. Initially, the TV program would only run for one hour due to limited funds.Ang Dating Daan is produced by the Members Church of God International (MCGI), presided by Bro.Eliseo Soriano, who also hosts the religious program.
For 2013, Shorty Awards added a Vox Populi or “voice of the people” distinction.
Meanwhile, The Old Path’s Tagalog Twitter handle, @Ang Dating Daan TV, took sixth place in the TV Show category.
The ABC show, Pretty Little Liars, took the number one spot besting other hit American programs like Married to Jonas, The Vampire Diaries, My Little Pony and Teen Wolf.
Painfully aware of this scenario, Catholic apologists in the Philippines belonging to different groups like Defensores Fidei Foundation (DFF) and Catholic Faith Defenders (DFF) dreamed of putting up a TV program defending the Catholic Faith and answering the false accusations of the sects. Indeed, so many things have been achieved by so few, with so little.
This almost impossible dream became a reality when the Children of Light Catholic Community (COLCC) offered their studio and facilities to tape the initial episodes of what became KNOW THE TRUTH. Only God’s grace can explain the little successes scored by KTT.
