Heresy Hunting, Biblical discernment, and Godly correction by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff.

Is there a place for biblical discernment and calling out those in error? Yes! And I think my website and YouTube channel have quite a repertoire, proofing this to be so. Over the last few years, I have spent some time on three different platforms looking at some problematic doctrinal errors, studying the Bible, and interviewing theologians to ask specific questions. Recently I have been invited by someone I have been investigating to interact and [...]

Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

In the last few years, there have been quite a few attempts made to answer this question. Broadly speaking, there are four views regarding this question. All Worship the same God (The Religious Pluralist View). All Worship the same God (The Same God View). Jews and Christians Worship the same God (The Shared revelation View). None Worship the same God (Different conceptions View). For the sake of time, let’s look at the second and fourth [...]

Jesus as an adopted Son of God: The Heresy of Adoptionism by Dr Daniel Maritz

Alister McGrath explains the nature of heresy as follows: “One of the more persistent themes in early Christian accounts of heresy is that it smuggles rival accounts of reality into the household of faith. It is a Trojan horse, a means of establishing (whether by accident or design) an alternative belief system within its host. Heresy appears to be Christian, yet it is actually an enemy of faith that sows the seed of faith’s destruction.”[1] Heresies are [...]

Jesus as a Phantom: The Heresy of Docetism by Dr Daniel Maritz

In Matthew 16:13-18 Jesus asks His disciples an especially important question: “Who do you say that I am?” This question was obviously aimed towards the true identity of Jesus. Although the apostle Peter was there in that instance to answer the question correctly, during the time right after the lives of the apostles[1] many different answers to this very question Jesus posed, appeared on the scene of church history. However, any answer to Jesus’ question which [...]

Negotiating the Person of Christ by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(5-Minute Read) Our starting point is indeed a complex one when we reflect upon the unique Lord, Jesus Christ. All concepts are but hush assimilations of the wonderful Lord we contemplate, and, in the end, we are simply bound by the limits of human logic. That being said, what does it mean when we speak about Jesus as “person.” Brian E. Daley writes. “When Greek theologians in the early church speak of the ‘hypostasis’ of [...]

Logos-Sarx Logos Anthropos: the reality of two equal distinctions by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

(10-minute Read) One way in which the first Christian community tried to articulate what they believed was via the Early Church Councils. Even though there were quite varied beliefs concerning the Person and the Work of Jesus Christ, in the end, we are reminded that God built His Church, and these Conciliar perspectives gave us some notion as to how we could stay within the bounds of Biblical Orthodoxy. In the first seven councils, the [...]

Verses on the two natures of Christ by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

In some previous articles, I looked at some of the historical understandings concerning the two natures of Jesus Christ. In this article, I will look at the Scriptural imperatives that show the reality of the two natures of Christ. Oliver Crisp reminds us that. “Scripture is the norm for all theological judgements, and that creeds, including the Chalcedonian definition, are subordinate norms that depend upon Scripture as the norming norm.”[1] Let me just say there [...]

“We Muslims love Jesus”Challenge! by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

Jesus says in John 14:15; “If you love me, keep my commands.” Do Muslims believe in the commands of Jesus? Here are some commands: "Believe in God, believe also in me" (John 14:1). Can Muslims say they believe in God and Jesus with the same affection and adherence? Do Muslims: “believe IN the One He sent" (John 5:38) Is Jesus the object of faith? Jesus says "...everyone who lives and believes in me will never [...]

“But You shall receive power.” By Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

And there it is, Jesus declares that we shall be empowered to be effective witnesses when the Spirit shows His activity in us. Luke the Physician accounts (Acts 1:8) “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” There seems to be a desire to see God move amongst His people [...]

Worshiping well by Pastor Rudolph P. Boshoff

What is labeled as Worship in our Churches today can take many forms. From pulsing lights to massive sounds and groovy beats to standing up straight orderly, focussing on a hymnal as we hear our fellows sing. Often people associate the quality of their Worship as they stirred their emotions or motivated themselves. Other times we associate the success of our offering with how it resonated with our appeal. Even though liturgical styles and musical [...]
